Ja, aber auf meinem Blog sehe ich es später als hier und vergesse dann auch viel eher zu antworten.

Nein, ich glaube mein Problem war die Tatsache, dass man das Schiff auch so frei nach oben und unten bewegen kann und das Tempo außerdem nicht so gut im Griff hat. Ich bin oft übers Ziel hinausgeschossen weil man plötzlich schnell wurde oder ich nicht im richtigen Moment abgebremst habe. Jetzt wo ich darüber nachdenke bin ich auch in anderen JRPGs mit dem Luftschiff dann oft ein wenig ungeschickt, aber da man die meist erst spät bekommt und als Alternative ja trotzdem noch auf der Weltkarte laufen kann, ist mir das nie so aufgefallen.

Mein Kumpel ist auch in Seoul, allerdings hatte er von Anfang an eigentlich eine ziemlich feste Gruppe. Vielleicht kennt ihr euch ja schon. Ich kam noch nicht dazu, ihn auch zu fragen. Er wird noch bis Mitte Juli bleiben!

Bei uns gehen die Zahlen gerade wieder runter, eigentlich schon seit ein paar Wochen. Inzwischen haben wir auch fast keine Einschränkungen mehr, mit 1.6. ist auch keine Maskenpflicht mehr (nur noch in Krankenhäusern oder beim Arzt). Ich selbst habe mich auch bisher immer noch nicht angesteckt. Mal sehen was im Herbst dann kommt.
Ich hoffe du hast die Zeit auch gut überstanden!

Oh, und Glückwunsch zum Durchspielen von Fire Emblem (ich bin spät, ich weiß). Das ist tatsächlich in den Top 5 meiner Lieblingsspiele überhaupt.

HEY! Congrats on Fire Emblem!!! Final thoughts?? Are you going to attempt a Hector story run?
I'm glad that my tip about not hoarding the boost items helped you!

The only thing I'm curious about the switch version is how they translated the motion-heavy combat on it.. i guess i could watch gameplay videos but im not that curious. i'm still glad I finally got around to beating the game. maybe I will replay it someday but not anytime soon!

i am 100% with you about Hyrule Field being so desolate in TP. I get why it was like that in the N64 but it seemed like they just wanted a big field to impress in terms of tech but there wasnt really anything that encouraged people to explore.

I will admit I wasn't the biggest fan of the ocean on my first run through WW but in hindsight its a pretty cool idea! I never bothered to explore back when I was a kid but Zelda WW sounds like a cool game to in terms of exploration and discovery.

for sure! i honestly love playing old games for the same reason! most games are devalued so quickly (except for nintendo {~_~}) it makes me sad for the devs! imagine the project you were pushed to the limit for went from $60 to $20 in little over a year??

yeah, the new levels definitely dont have much charm to them like the original courses did. i heard it was because they only really ported over MK Tour stages so it kinda explains why they're so... bleh. i see people on twitter talking about how a lot of these things are just money grabs from nintendo and honestly. the quality of the DLC tracks definitely leaves a lot to be desired.

OMG! I see you're playing FF3! I'm thinking of starting that one next after FFX. I've always heard joys about their job system and I love the FFTA job system so i'm looking forward to it. I also planned to play the NDS version. what are your thoughts on it so far??

Wow, vielen Dank für den ausführlichen Kommentar!
Ich glaube wenn ich SoAL und Persona 3 gleichzeitig gespielt hätte, hätte mich Ersteres noch mehr runtergezogen. Persona 3 ist bisher das einzige Persona, das ich gespielt habe und das völlig neuartige Prinzip mochte ich sehr, da hätte mir der Grind das gar nicht versauen können.
Bei SoAL hatte ich dafür mehr Vergleichsmöglichkeiten, weil es eben so klassisch ist. Oder dachte ich zumindest, weil es alleine durch die Erkundung per Luftschiff schon sehr eigen ist. Außerdem macht es halt eigentlich die Kombination aus vielen klassischen Themen (die stereotypen Welten, die sich aber halt dadurch so herrlich voneinander unterscheiden, die Gesichter, denen man die Gesinnung gut & böse sofort ansieht, und eben vieles mehr) einfach sehr gut. Man merkt einfach, dass hier noch viel Liebe ins Detail gesteckt wurde und das Spiel eine "Seele" hat.
Eben genau wie du sagst, die einzelnen Faktoren sind "liebevoll zusammengenäht".

Bisher bin ich auch die einzige, die ich kenne, die mit der Erkundung Probleme hatte. Alle anderen, die das Spiel kennen, haben das immer so positiv erwähnt. Also liegt es wohl an mir.

Oh, stimmt ja, die Musik hatte ich im Bericht ganz vergessen, die ist mir auch positiv aufgefallen. Es gibt wenig RPGs (vor allem die eher klassischen), wo ich heutzutage noch wenigstens ansatzweise die Faszination in der Musik finde, wie es damals bei Nobuo Uematsu/FF war. Da gab es in SoAL tatsächlich ein paar Momente, wo ich während dem Erkunden dem Soundtrack zufrieden gelauscht habe (zum Beispiel gleich im ersten Tempel auf Shrine Island).

Ich habe zwar keine Erfahrungen mit dem GC Emulator, aber der wäre sonst vielleicht noch eine Möglichkeit, falls man da das Tempo beschleunigen kann (was die meisten Emulatoren ja durchaus beherrschen sollten)?

Ein Freund von mir ist derzeit übrigens auch für ein paar Monate in Korea, aufgrund eines Austauschprogrammes an seiner Uni, also besonders herzliche Grüße zurück (immer noch aus Österreich). Hast du dort auch einen längeren Aufenthalt?

Grazie mille! (Tre settimane senza aggiornamenti sul MultiTap, iniziavo a preoccuparmi!)

Adesso che devo dare la caccia alla Triforza inizio a rendermi conto che l'ho giocato un po' male, è proprio il tipo di esperienza in cui le sidequest andrebbero fatte durante la storia, mentre ora mi si riversano addosso tutte insieme...

Yeah, you did a good strategy this time around. I never fathomed to promote a unit before level 20, the consequences are pretty dire. BUT some of the characters are pretty fragile/frail until they get that promotion boost (im looking at your pegasi knights)

OH I used to do the same thing about waiting until the end to use boost items but thats a huge NO-NO, those lil boosts really make a difference when training your units. my brother still plays like that to wait for the end but i found out its not worth it. i think its the fact that their single-use so it makes people nervous to "waste" them but they're more wasted by just sitting there without being used. i used to be the same way about TMs in pokemon but they're there for a reason!

i agree 100% on your opinion of skyward sword. the good parts are cool but the bad parts are so very boring. in regards to the combat, i was surprised at the upped difficulty in this game, the fact that you start with a lot more hearts definitely signals that the devs knew it was a harder games than others. its the only zelda game i would make sure to have potions in stock for the dungeons. i would probably rate skyward sword a 7.50 tbh, im usually weary of games that feel like a chore to go back to play. maybe im being highly critical but thats my score for now.

HMM if i sit down and think about it, Twilight Princess is probably at a B. (in a tier system of S > A > B > C > D > F) i used to hate it because of the wolf sections, i think those sections really messed with the overall flow of the game.

same here, i keep hearing talk about Elden Ring and it just sounds painful to me. im not big on Souls games at all, now a Souls-like BOTW sounds worse to me lol there's something refreshing about being a bit behind on games because it still feels new to you even in 2022.

i'll add Pikmin to my "to " list for sure, there has to be a reason its highly praised. i've always been curies about Chibi Robo too but i havent heard as many good things about it either. someone recently recommended FF X-2 to me and it certainly sounded fun to me little queer brain lol

Majora's Mask 3D was a great port! definitely enjoyed it! never got to play TriForce Heroes but i've heard good things.

my friend is recently in a MK8 kick so i've been replaying that game and what a masterpiece it is! the DLC for the Switch came out recently too but tbh the new tracks are missing some charm idk..

Sorry for the late reply; we were still talking about Triforce Heroes, right? I did play with friends, but they lost interest before we could do the challenges and extra postgame stuff. I could maybe pick up another copy at some point and my husband and I could play with you, if he’s willing. It’d probably be awhile though…he’s going to want to play ALBW first XD

Ciao Phil, mi farebbe piacere dirti alla grande ma insomma, sto cercando disperatamente di staccarmi dal mio lavoro di merda attuale perchè ormai non ne posso più, e rivoglio controllo sulla mia vita, visto che vorrei tornare a studiare e fare la magistrale, che credo mi "tocchi/serva". Te invece?

Per quanto riguarda il Checkpoint Cafè, sì, fai pure, tanto credo di aver comunque salvato un backup del blog in sè tempo fa, nel dubbio non cancellare nulla, ma credo non ci sia nulla di grosso che non abbia trasferito o copiato su documento testo a sè. In ogni caso il blog a prendere polvere digitale comunque, quindi fai pure.

Per quanto riguarda quello italiano, non è andato malaccio tutto sommato, ma ho finito per abbandonarlo a metà 2020, causa poco interesse mio. Ho poi messo mano a quello inglese che avevo riservato anni prima (in caso), ed onestamente è andata meglio dopo che ho preso un pò più ritmo, tanto che poi ho deciso di provare a monetizzare ad inizio di questo anno.

Puoi immaginare che è ovviamente una cosa molto extra vista la miseria di revenue per singola pubblicità e considerato che ho poche visualizzazioni, ma ha dato la sua soddisfazione, specialmente quanto ho iniziato a postare giornalmente. Però dopo quasi un'anno di posting giornaliero (e raramente con articolini rapidi improvvisati), da febbraio sto facendo bigiornaliero (con meno macigno mentale e guadagno in salute mia), è sfiancante avendo anche un altro lavoro che mi occupa un sacco di tempo e che per sua natura mi ha sempre occupato il weekend.

For the last few years, I mainly played stuff on Steam, sometimes on GOG. With all the moving around I did, it was easy to play things on my laptop.

Letsee here

Fallout New Vegas, when the game wasn't crashing, was one of my favorites

Terraria also kept me busy! I really got into that game for a while, enough to get all achievements

MDK, when I got the game working, was so much fun. I didn't enjoy MDK 2 as much.

La-Mulana was quite unlike anything else. I enjoyed that one

Jade Empire, I loved the story and world, even though I sucked at the combat

There are countless other games, but I'm proud to say most of the games in my Steam library are either or

I'm looking forward to playing more console games again, especially with my mental health being in a better state. It fell apart for a good part of the month as I was returning here, but it's behind me.

I do think using a 2nd healer definitely helps! But it's easier said than done. at that point in the game its easy to assume you have 2 promoted magic users, most promoted magic users use staves! but idk your situation lol hopefully you beat it soon!

THANK YOU! I felt such a relief when I finally beat Skyward Sword!! Ultimately, I think it was an enjoyable experience. I think I'm much more use to bite-sized gaming these days (a lot of games are pick up and play) and I think Skyward Sword is very much an old school "play this for 40 minutes if you want any kind of progression" so I don't think it's the games fault. Ultimately, I'm glad I played it but I won't be replaying it anytime soon.. I have it on the same tier level as twilight princess tbh.

So. what was your final verdict once you completed Skyward Sword?

You're right! I don't remember having trouble with minish cap either, I guess old games are just harder lol what Zelda games have you 'd? I tried to complete Zelda OOT once but I gave but when there wasnt an easy to way track which skulltulas I've had lol damn im a bad gamer

Yeah, I don't think you're missing out much this generation. A lot of switch games are just ports anyway! I rarely play the game of the week/month (like right now Elden Ring) these days. I will try the latest Nintendo game if it piques my interest but that doesn't happen often. it's exhausting to constantly be trying new games! i dont know how streamers do it.. if i were to stream I would probably focus on smaller or older games that are overlooked (to this day I want to try Pikmn and Chibi Robo!)

ooh Korea, you say huh? how exciting! I got a promotion at work on the last quarter and I've gotten to travel around more these days! i got to visit Seattle for the first time a few weeks back and it was nice! (i live in the southwest desert so the northwest coast climate was definitely shocking). oof i googled Dungeon Master and it certainly looks like those unforgiving games of yesteryear...

i dont really have any gaming goals this year. i'll probably take a look at my ucketlist and go from there. maybe i'll finally try Pikmin later on!

well, let's hope this year is a good one!

Ich muss zugeben, dass ich im Mittelteil ein bisschen Schwierigkeiten hatte mich zu motivieren (und mit ein bisschen meine ich eigentlich große Schwierigkeiten), aber am Ende hat das Spiel alles wieder gut gemacht! Vor allem ab dem Zeitpunkt wo man die Welt mit dem Schiff wirklich frei bereisen kann (weil man einfach über alle Hindernisse drüber fliegen konnte) hatte ich wirklich sehr viel Spaß und dann auch eine Menge Sidequests nachgeholt und optionale Gebiete erkundet!

one of the differences that SotC changed that I felt was a step back was the introduction of a GUI...I wonder how SotC would have felt without the constant visual reminder of the stamina circle and the life bar
I agree that it would have been better without a GUI. I think they could have indicated Wander's decreasing grip in some other way, while getting rid of the life bar altogether. Too high of a fall? Dead. Too big of a hit? Dead. Anything else? Stunned and vulnerable, with on-screen effects indicating you're in a weakened state and could die easily if you get hit again. That said, the PS4 remake lets you disable the HUD, so you can try it out.

Are 3D movies and games still a thing? I never heard of them in a long time...
Not really. They were a fad. My wife and I import 3D copies of the Marvel films from the UK since we can't get them in the US, but we only pull out the 3D glasses maybe once per year. We rarely use it, but the PS3 version of the games came out right in the middle of the fad, so 3D support was a big feature in its marketing.

What was absent in the US (I presume) version?
The EU version added a giant mace you could find that was a major upgrade to the typical weapons in the game. There was also a secret ending after the credits if you did certain things along the way. Neither was present in the US version of the game (not sure about the JP version). You can find videos of the secret ending on YouTube, but I'd strongly suggest you avoid them if you plan to play the game again soon-ish.

I also want to play the Last Guardian some day, I just have such a huge backlog of games I still want to play... I hope to get to it one day. I'm so amazed by the architecture that the game shows...
The Last Guardian feels a lot more like an ICO sequel than a SotC sequel, so I'd definitely suggest playing it, but it's a game that will hold up over time, so there's no rush. You can probably play it in a decade and enjoy it just as much as today. But yeah, the architecture is incredible.

I've been reading your conversation with Llama and found myself agreeing with a lot of what you guys talked about. Llama actually said something I've thought for years about Galaxy exuding joy. Few games are more joyful, but I agree with you that there were definitely a few frustrating points the first time I played (e.g. getting 100 coins on the level shaped like 2D Mario), though I found those much easier on a replay.

Cheers!
