Sounds like you've gotten into the groove of it then. Savor your suspended impression of P5 while you can because you're in the middle of it right now, which is unanimously considered the strongest portion. It starts to get a little far-fetched in November, but in my opinion it still delivers more cohesively than P4 and more climactically than P3 so it's definitely not worse than its predecessors.

Requests are a meager requirement with Mishima unfortunately, and his ranks don't unlock until certain days that are spread widely across the campaign, which is annoying but also kinda fair considering how beneficial he is. But high ranks in Moon, Star, and Sun combined can make for some amazingly fluid battle experiences!

Well sure, I'll play all of them anyway, so it doesn't matter. Trails (I'd really rather not use its acronym) still seems like a logical starting point either way. I'm just now noticing how high levels are early on in 3rd, so do the characters default to higher levels in sequels or something like that?

Yes, that's what I did before. But now they're in separate rooms so outputting PC video to TV would be rather impractical. I do, however, have an absurdly long ethernet cable so I may be able to connect it directly to a Link which is apparently possible.

It's not as if I'm that far into it or anything, but I kinda like how small the worlds are in BBS since I'm not as inclined to tire of them. Can't speak to return visits yet of course, but there's certainly more instant gratification in the short-tasked "portable" pacing. 3D doesn't look enticing to me at all, though just for the sake of being up to speed I'll probably play the 2.8 version shortly before III releases—again, there's plenty of time to spare in that regard. But I must say I am SUPER pumped now that Toy Story is in the mix, as if Tangled and Big Hero 6 weren't enticing enough!

Psh yeah, and right after I finally got a FUNi subscription in the VRV bundle too. Oh well, guess I'll focus on RWBY instead then. I also watched Yuri on Ice recently, which is waaaayyy more deserving of its reputation than I expected. It kinda has a Fate/Zero thing going on, i.e. the three MCs are all satisfyingly deep on their own while the supporting cast is quirky but too rushed in to be memorable. If anything the dub is hilarious, both intentionally and...maybe unintentionally?

Ooh, that's different to have aways so early, but good luck to you! And I binged on P5 too before my dedicated study, but I haven't gotten back to it even though I finished boards

Meh, I never upgraded weapons/armor unless I was lucky enough to get them from drops or chests (protip: Mona will let you craft lockpicks the night before you send a calling card). The thing about Mementos is that while you can easily do each section in one go, almost every confidant requires a Mementos request at some point before you can rank any higher. Moon has one at almost every rank, and that's a pretty crucial relationship since it affects EXP gain. So you may find yourself going there more often than anticipated, but maxing Temperance should allow you to mitigate the amount of free time it eats up.

I was leaning toward playing Sky first anyway so that's fine. Probably a stronger first impression too so I won't lose faith in the long haul of the series early on. Now the only issue is that I've moved yet again—fun stuff, ain't it?—and my computer is no longer hooked up to the TV. Now may be a good time to invest in a Steam Link....

Sheesh, now I see what you mean about backtracking in KHII. I was interested at first since it disguised itself as having new content in each world's revisit, but said content's creativity was waaaaaayyy less impressive than in the first half. Did it need to be a 30-hour game or something? I would've preferred just the 20 relevant hours without all this deceptive filler that only pretends to add anything to the characters...plus if the whole releasing hearts thing was simply moved to the earlier visits' conclusions instead, there wouldn't be any need for second visits.

The final boss was kinda cool I guess, but otherwise the whole thing really plateau'd after the Battle of Hollow Bastion. Strange really, I was bored and underwhelmed during the first few hours of KH1 but then it escalated exponentially, whereas here it went in reverse: Gameplay totally hit the ground running after Twilight Town but then gradually became more and more tedious.

If it's any consolation, the third palace is loooooonnnggg. I kept backtracking to save rooms and that worked well enough for me, but resource-wise I felt like we were hanging by a thread by the end of it. Still, DAT MUSIC. Are you playing on Normal or...?

I *think* July is when the array of things to do rapidly expanded, so you may be getting there soon. You've probably figured out by now that the "XX days remaining" phases are the only days you get much free time. Fortunately, scarcity shouldn't be an issue after Kaneshiro's Bank so you'll only need two days (three in one case, I think?) for each remaining palace...plus any days spent in Mementos.

I believe the earliest point you can max out Strength (Caroline & Justine) is after the palace that ends on 11/20, and I strongly suggest you do so just to see what kind of game-breakers you can potentially get out of it. I max'd it during the following palace after two-and-a-half hours of fiddling around and it was totally worthwhile. Just remember to store up some yen...also, you can SAVE in the Velvet Room, something I didn't figure out until halfway through that session.

Should I go for Sky or Cold Steel first? I'm thinking that'll be my next adventure if I can survive the rest of KH. At least it's pretty much guaranteed KH3 isn't going to crop up any time soon. Cosmic Star Heroine is finally out too, but I'm wary about that one with all the bug reports. Even though it already took long enough to release as is.

Sora's Chain of Memories campaign can be summed up in like three sentences, so I doubt a Riku primer would take much research. I'm just now getting into II's backtrack half, so we'll see if the gameplay and atmosphere continue to thrill me enough to make it worthwhile.
