So now you're halfway through Yakuza 5. What did you think of 4, and 5 so far? 5 is one I keep telling myself I'll replay, but honestly it just seemed kinda like a slog at parts (like the hunting), Shinada fuckin sucks, and it almost seems TOO big and ambitious, by the home stretch I was just powering through it because I wanted it to end already. Though I haven't really done any substories in it...had a friend stream 3-5 for Lilithday though and he did most of the substories in all those games, so I might be good. I dunno, if I do replay it, I guess I'll do some at least. 6 though I did almost none when I played through on PS4, and seemed like I didn't take as much time to appreciate that game as I do for Yakuza games these days.

Binary Domain was an alright game, should see if it's playable on Series X...think it is, but I'm not sure. I know they were talking about a remaster of that game, which would be cool. Oh, for Kenzan and Ishin, they were talking more about it after how well Ghost of Tsushima did. Personally, I'd want a Dead Souls HD with better controls. The story of that game was good enough. I'd also want a Black Panther 1 and 2 port...people have been saying maybe a second Yakuza Remastered Collection with all of those. I don't know, I think that many games might warrant two more collections. I guess you might be able to get away with one, since two of them are PSP games.

I'd probably say to look into investing in an Everdrive, since I think I was told a lot of N64 games are kinda expensive now, and it definitely seems like a device that would save you a lot of money in the long run if you're into N64 gaming. Though, that's assuming you don't care about the physical aspect. I mainly got mine because I didn't have enough space to keep my N64 carts upstairs, too many games that I can't emulate up here, at least not perfectly (basically every disc based system, along with N64)

I've kinda been aching to start up the game on Dreamcast soon. I was like halfway done with it on GCN, but I probably forget anything about it, because it was like 4-5 years ago. I would like that White Map with Discoveries when I get far enough. Is getting 50 Discoveries something that you have to go out of your way for, or does it come pretty naturally?

My mood has been fluctuating pretty wildly, as you can see, I've managed to beat like 14-15 games in the past two weeks, but my social anxiety has been pretty high and I really haven't felt like socializing much at all. A lot of days I just had really bad fatigue and barely feel like doing anything at all that day. Hopefully I can get up the motivation to reply here more and write more.

Yeah, that might be me if I didn't get a Series X gifted to me (and a PS5 later when they are actually available). Now though, I might as well get it on Series X. Really not happy with how Sony has been handling...well, pretty much everything, up to and including backwards compatibility and game preservation, or lack thereof. I do want to play Ratchet and Clank really bad, though I may not get a PS5 at all had I not been told I'd get gifted that too. Already have 2 PS5 controllers, and 3 Series X controllers, so I'm set.

I wish the first All Stars Racing was playable on Series X. At least Transformed is. Still need to go back and grind out a few more stars to beat the game proper, and I'd like to unlock the rest of the characters. Also play more multiplayer, that'd be fun.

I actually haven't touched my PS3 in months. I'm glad I have the Resident Evil rail shooters and House of the Dead 3 and 4 downloaded already. I don't think there's really anything I'd still need to get on PS3, I was pretty thorough on that system back when it was active.

I really need to replay Yakuza 0-6 now that 6 in on Xbox. Later this month, I'll try out that English dub for Judgment, since I played it in Japanese on PS4. Think that'll be my first Yakuza English experience since the first game on PS2. I've just been playing more Like a Dragon recently.

I imported an Astro City Mini in late March. Not from LRG (and boy am I glad with the whole deception they did and the prices they wanted, I got a system, 2 controllers, and shipping for what they wanted for the system alone), but from Amazon.jp, in a sale no less, which may explain why my final cost was only like 130 dollars or so. Think a guy on Youtube said it cost him around 200. I sure didn't pay anything near that. I finally have Golden Axe: Revenge of Death Adder, without the graphical issues MAME has with it.

I began dabbling in some Open BOR stuff too (I have an Open BOR disc on Dreamcast that I've been toying around with streaming). The pack I got has 5 Sailor Moon games including Sailor V!

I played through The Granstream Saga a few years ago, actually. It's a very...interesting game. The combat is 1 Vs. 1 and it feels very deliberate, like a pre-cursor to Dark Souls. You can counter attacks, distance is very important and it feels like a fighting game in a way. It's very heavy on the dialogue and the game repeats itself several times over. It's an interesting experience and one that I have never seen before. If you have an open mind, I'd say give it a shot.

Congratulations on the Skies of Arcadia ! Man, when you like a game, you go full force into it! I'm so glad that you came around to it and found a way to really like it. You were struggling with it for a while, so its great that you were able to figure out what was wrong and fix it. I know the GameCube version has some extra stuff to do as well.

*Laughs* Yeah, I think you were extremely under-leveled in FFX. I'm impressed that you were able to plow through it in about 50 Hours. I love that game so much, that whenever I play it, I almost do everything. I've never done a speed or minimalist run of the game, but I've always wanted to do it. With my PS3 purchase, I'm super excited to play the Remaster versions.

I played through Phantasy Star II & III recently. I thought they were okay. Great music, long dungeons, too much grinding and very difficult. Phantasy Star IV is very much like that, but fun! It has great music, the dungeons are fairly short and its not been too difficult. I've heard the Sega Ages collections fix many of the issues with the games, so that is a good choice. Unless you love to play games historically or know the story, Phantasy Star IV is so far the best in the series.

I have played Mega Man: The Wily Wars! I've played a Reproduction Cart on my Sega Genesis. It has some of the issues that I had with Mega Man 7 like how Mega Man is a larger sprite, so he takes damage more. But, the graphics and music got a significant upgrade. Also, Wily Tower is a really interesting take on the series. If you liked Mega Man 7, I'd give it a try as I think you would like it.

I think a break from Terranigma would be a good idea. I actually need to pick that up! I played Illusion of Gaia first and I loved it so much. In fact, I loved it more than I did Link to the Past as I would compare the two. And then I played Soul Blazer a few years later and loved it too. I know what you mean on how addicting it was. I always just wanted to keep on playing more!

I'm glad that you have learned that each character has its place. Hopefully, with a few levels and skills, you won't have to use Delta Shield every single time. Then Aika can be either be an extra healer or attacker while Vyse focuses on Attacking. Vyse will be your strongest character, so having him attack at all times is a great idea!

Oh, that is too true! I completely forgot about the Aeons and the final few bosses. See, whenever I play FFX, I always do everything because I love it so much. So, I had most of the Ultimate Weapons by the very end of the game and it made those fights kind of a joke. They take a while, but they make the rest of the game so much easier!

Yeah, it's a visual novel, so there are a ton of dialog. Each chapter is a few hours long and you really only fight one battle during the chapter, so most of the time is talking. You have to be in the right mood to listen to hours of dialog, but once you are, it is very interesting!

*Laughs* I think so too! I'll be very curious to hear your opinions on the first six Mega Man games on the NES. I would highly recommend those and playing them on any collections helps them become much easier!

A PC Upgrade is good necessity! I'm not much of a PC Gamer, but I'm still on it all the time. Just to have one that works properly would be great!

Let's just say what you saw in 0 is a quick preview of a plotline in 4. Well, probably the main plotline in 4. It's been fun playing through 4 again, because the last time I played it was when it came out on PS3, and when I was not nearly into the series as I am now. I haven't really gotten far enough to see it, but 4 on PS4 also has the better translation (Kazama over Fuma, Nishikiyama over Nishiki, Morning Glory over Sunshine, Florist of Sai over Kage, etc). It wasn't until 5 that they dropped that shitty translation and got a better one when they hired some great new people.

The first PSP game got a (fairly rough, but playable) translation a few weeks ago. I've read though it crashes after a certain mission, though, but you can get around that by playing up till that part, switch to a UMD, beat the part, then switch back to the patch. I do not know if there is any other way around it. Sadly, it seems that the hacker is done with the translation, but who knows if someone will pick it up. Kenzan has been a subject of getting an official translation, there are numerous articles of a Kenzan Kiwami. As for Ishin, if we get it, it will probably be a straight port, because it was a launch PS4 title, and Kenzan was very early PS3, even before Yakuza 3. I think I liked everything about Dead Souls except the gameplay, the gameplay was a huge slog. That and a gun battle system wasn't very fun, fistfighting zombies would be been more fun and a lot more interesting.

I still don't know how my mom managed to find Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, because it certainly was not the type of game that would be mainstream, even back then I imagine. I had that as a kid though, and rented Great Adventure a lot, but only bought the cart in the early 2000s. That one was a lot harder. A LOT. Starring Goemon was pretty easy, I even was able to beat it in 99 or so, but Great Adventure I don't think I ever beat. I keep meaning to ask my cousin if he wants to co op it.

Back when I was recording Legends (half a decade ago), I found a very, very good battle attack order, which made every battle easy and completely safe. All I remember now is Delta Shield, Justice Shield, and I think Pirate's Wrath. I do kind of want to just restart on Dreamcast, but I'm apparently halfway or a bit over on Legends. I have that First 4 Figures Vyse statue, and I got that CD too. Vyse is a character in Transformed, by the way.

RE Origins, 2, 3, and 4-6 are all on backwards compatibility, though I will not be playing 6 again. The Series X can play all Xbox One games, most Xbox 360 games, and some original Xbox games. Right now, I have a lot I want to play, mostly on the Series X, including an RE2 replay, RE3, Devil May Cry 5 SE, more Like a Dragon, replaying Yakuza 0, and Kingdoms of Amalur Re Reckoning. Co op games have taken a backseat, at least local co op, things continue to be bad here. I want to play the Virtua Cop games with him, and continue River City Girls on PS4. I just got the three Van Helsing games on Series X on a pretty deep discount too. For now though, all we can do is online stuff, which is harder than it should be, because I've pretty much abandoned getting games for Sony consoles mostly, and have no immediate plans to get a PS5.

Transformed is probably my favorite racing game ever, only a bit above Mario Kart 8. It doesn't quite have the same kind of story mode as say, Diddy Kong Racing, but it does have a world tour, which is far meatier than any other racing game I can think of, and can have you log a lot of hours with it. Shame that the first All Stars Racing isn't compatible with the Series X, I guess at least I have that on Steam if I ever want to play it again. That and I hooked my PS3 back up, mainly for Dead Souls and House of the Dead...though I'll still have to fiddle with my Move controllers...maybe, I tried the normal controller for the first level of Overkill, it actually is surprisingly playable. I dunno, I'd feel better using lightguns. I have 1 and 2 for Saturn and Dreamcast with lightguns with the CRT. Played Typing of the Dead too on Dreamcast with the keyboard.

Well, I started Yakuza 4 on PS4, and then probably a week later, they announce 3-6 for Xbox. Oh well, I'll just play 3 again on Xbox and I guess keep playing 4 on PS4...because even if I'm only like 25% in, that's still like 9-10 hours. 5 and 6 I've been wanting to replay, but guess I just will on Xbox now. 0-K2 I have not touched on Xbox yet, the only game I have played on it is Like a Dragon.

Oh, you'll like 5 then, it has 5 different cities, and then 6 and 7 both have secondary brand new cities. Seeing you play 3 reminded me how much I didn't like it when I first played it on PS3, mainly the orphanage, but the translation probably had something to do with it, because I liked it on PS4 a whole lot more. FUCK chase missions though.

I know what you mean. I'm only playing Wind Waker on Wednesday nights, but I get the feeling to play the game much more throughout the week. It must be harder for you especially since you just like to power through it. While also checking your Now Playing, I see that you are playing Soul Blazer! Oh man, that is such a great game! If you can, check out Illusion of Gaia, which is the spiritual sequel to the game. Both of those are such fantastic ARPG!!

Yeah, the Wishlist would be perfect for it. You could also add them as Null, meaning they would be added to your collection and your numbers, but won't count in a negative way. I'm very OCD, so I like to everything in order and in one space. I didn't realize that you had so many hidden games.

Okay, I don't remember the bosses in Skies being THAT difficult. And I don't remember Risan taking 7 tries to work, that sounds brutal. But, I'm glad to see you making it through them with a little practice and grinding. Also, FFX is possibly my favorite game of all time and I don't remember difficult bosses in that one either. Maybe I just take RPGs slower and just love to grind! And yes, a Discovery Map is a God Send! You won't find them all without it.

Hearing about the Sakura Wars reboot was the reason I was interested in playing my PS2 copy. We shall see if I get to play the reboot. I checked out the series after beating the PS2 entry as I wanted to play others in the series and that looked very difficult to do. Many games were released on the Japanese Saturn or you have the one that just came out.

Oh Man, I'm a Mega Man veteran! Well, Old-School Mega Man Veteran. I own and played through 1 - 6 on the NES. My favorite of the series is 2, obviously. 3 would be a close second, but I have more nostalgia for MM2. I've played through the Anniversary Collection, so I've played 1-8 on that as well. So, this will be my first time playing MM7 on the SNES. I remember Dr. Wily being rather brutal on the Anniversary Collection and the game being a bit harder than the NES versions. But, I'm very much looking forward to it and continuing my Mega Man journey.

The last time I beat Zelda: Wind Waker, it was the Fall of 2017. I was looking for a GameCube game to next year and Wind Waker seemed like the easiest choice. I need to beat New Game Plus Mode, so its just me going through the game one more time. I really enjoyed my experience with the game, so I'm excited to play through it another time.

In 2015, I bought a whole bunch of new consoles, so I lost some progress on that. And last year, I moved and was able to add all of my hidden games, so I only did a progress of +1. Besides that, I like to keep a positive number every year. It helps in my war against !

Oh, that is very nice. Yeah, some of the bosses can be a pain. Keep your characters in your roles and you might want to grab a few extra levels as well. Hopefully, that should help with the bosses!

Earthbound is 250?! WOAH! I bought that for like $135 or so. I'm glad I did! But, Mario RPG for only $60? I don't think it would be worth it for a label upgrade.

Hmm, Sacred Stones sounds pretty good! My friend suggested going through the Fire Emblem games in NA release date and I think that would be a good idea. I really don't want my second Fire Emblem game to be a Famicom game. I'll do the GBA/Wii games first and then go back for the Japanese only games.

Congratulations on picking up Sakura Wars. Yeah, I've never played a Visual Novel/Dating Sim game before, so this was a new experience for me. The SRPG part is really basic, so that was really nice to. But, yeah, it was a silly and fun game. It's a good game to play after some more heavy games!

Really?! Dude, that rocks! North Wall is actually on my ipod from ActRaiser (good drawing song). I'll have to check that out myself as well, haha.

Those games are really good! I beat Illusion of Gaia only a couple of years ago but already want to go through it again. I am surprised I hadn't beat Soul Blazer (the music is just, chef kisses), so I'm probably going to tackle that soon. Hadn't heard of Terranigma, and that is going straight to my wishlist. I am going to be impatient to get my hands on that game, good lord... Action RPGs are just my all time favorite genre of games along with collectathons.

Wind Waker is fantastic, man. I have the biggest soft spot for MM and TP, but WW is super fun and the boat segments are really well done. Suikoden IV is definitely not as engaging in the ship segments as a warning, haha! 100% completion only takes around 30 hours though, which is a plus since you get the most out of it if you recruit all the characters in your army. It's so hard to give a subjective opinion since I've memorized the game and beaten it so many times, but I still think it's worthwhile to play! Just not, super top tier, 10/10 kind of installments. No problem at all!

I need to play Skies of Arcadia too! So many to add to my list I like this. Ooh, Rogue Galaxy? I need it -grabby hands-.

I got nostalgia just reading Diddy Kong Racing! I played that so much as a kid. The game for Conker's Bad Fur Day looks nice, but the adult theme is harder for me to get past, lmaoooo. Robo's area was awesome too!

Ooooh, okay! Looking forward to it for sure.

Really?? I'm honored for the complement; thankyou so much! Yeah, animating is a lot of fun! Just takes so much time, so I hadn't done a whole lot recently, but it makes me really happy to hear that.

Hahahaha, that's amazing! You won your game valiantly. I got mine since my mom worked at a game store and was able to get them discounted. I can't disagree on that! I never got to the ending or the boss as a kid, but I saw it on an LP (still waiting to get the game again and play through it).

Thankfully am! I haaaaaaaate one of the original villains in an irrational way, but I am definitely interested in playing the games myself regardless! RE is a pretty solid series for sure.

I cannot wait to see your thoughts on it! I would say SH1 holds up, but the graphics might be hard to get past if you're not fond of the PS1 gittery-ness. It's still hella spooky, and the bosses/creatures had a lot more variety in the original game (the later ones they stick to the human-like monsters more).

I totally understand wanting to skip to 3 for Heather. She is the best girl (most interesting protagonist out of the series too), but I promise it will be worth it to play them in order! This isn't much of a spoiler since you learn about it early on, but Harry, the one you play in SH1 is her father, so the backstory and where she came from is pretty important and is referred to quite a bit in the game. A lot of parts gets me in the feels, too.

That is awesome! Those FFs are some gooood stuff.

Yes, I'm familiar with Popful Mail, in fact I own it CIB on Sega CD...though that was before I stumbled upon the Unworked patch that makes the game semi playable. I did manage to beat Lunar 1 on the Sega CD without the Unworked patch, but I just said fuck it and played Lunar 2 with the patch, mainly due to the stupid paid save crap.

One of the Goemon PS1 games got translated, you can put it on the PS1 Classic easily. The Devil Children games are also going to be translated on PS1, as well as some of the other Goemon games.

I've been watching a Sailor Moon Another Story LP and I'm already picking up on a few things that I missed out on in my first two playthroughs because I've actually seen most it the episodes the game is based on now. I'm actually getting pretty into the show, which is kind of fitting after all this time, considering I came from a Sailor Moon chat room back in 1999.

Oh god, the hookshot in RE0. Amazing, amazing item in Zelda, hugely cumbersome and pointless in RE0. You use it like...three times ever, and it HAS to take up TWO item slots. It's probably my least favorite item in the game. It's incredibly annoying when you get to a spot where you need it, but you left it on the floor back in the main hall of the facility, or something.

I'll probably be playing RE0 (and REmake...and RE2make and RE3make...and 4, already started 5) on the new Xbox. So far my playlist on the new system has been Tetris Connected, RE5, Sonic All Stars Transformed, Super Bomberman R, Diablo III, and Sonic Generations.

RE0's story would have been far more interesting if it had more to do with the Bravo team members and what all happened to them before RE1. Instead, it's just....they all show up maybe once in a very minor role, Enrico's the only one that appears more that once, some of them don't even GET any lines, you just have to know who they are in that helicopter shot, and it's just...doesn't really explain ANYTHING about how they get to where they are in RE1.

I'm guessing they didn't fully settle on Majima's character until...I believe Yakuza 4 is the first ones that give him those characteristics (tragic and crazy), in the original Yakuza 1, he was more of a minor antagonist, so I assume that was why Kiwami 1 did what it did with him. I will say that Yakuza 4 dives a bit more into his backstory, so if Majima's what you want, Yakuza 4 is probably gonna be fun for you. He also has some involvement in 5, though I'd say it's very minor and much more behind the scenes.

I'm afraid I won't be able to stop playing Like a Dragon once I start it, so I've been holding off on it...but I gotta start it some time. Did you hear about the Yakuza 3-6 PC/Xbox ports early next year? Now we just gotta get Judgment off of PS4 exclusivity. Maybe Lost Paradise, but I honestly didn't enjoy what I played of that game that much. I'd love PSP remakes and Kenzan/Ishin. They did mention that they're working on a new game.

Oh yes, speaking of Majima and Goda, they're both in Dead Souls, and both playable! Too bad the game's stuck on PS3. One of the reasons I hooked my PS3 back up. That and House of the Dead Overkill, which is surprisingly playable with a controller, which is good because I didn't want to deal with my Moves and lightgun attachments again.

Stumbled upon your game rankings list while browsing Backloggery. I already knew you had impeccable tastes when it came to gaming with Paper Mario: TTYD sitting at number one but boy was I happy to see Donkey Kong 64 make the list! I absolutely love that game and it isn't easy to find praise for the game.

Overall, very nice list! I haven't played 16/33 of those so I added some games to my "Games to Play" list. So thanks for that!

Great review of DQ1 on Switch, you added your own insight rather than focusing mainly on the history of the series like other reviews.

DQII was enjoyable for me as well. The pyramid dungeon gave me problems too when I first played it, and when I attempted DQIII years later. DQIII was a bit confusing sometimes with progression, I also had to look up many things to progress in it.I see that you are making some progress in DQIV now!

Great that you are going to watch the Punchline anime! I haven't seen too much of the Hunter X Hunter anime, but I have read a bit of the manga for it. Anime I have been watching recently include--Strike Witches: Road to Berlin, Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club, and Fairy Tail. I started watching Fairy Tail after finishing the game on PS4. You are right, there is so much anime out there to watch. I do my best to keep up with all the new seasonal anime series.

I read about that Ace Attorney leak, we will just have to wait and see if those Great Ace Attorney games finally get released in the West!

I have read many of the light novels for Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in A Dungeon and recently finished the latest season of Re:ZERO.

I can see that! Even though people say it's the weakest of the series, I feel like it's nice to start at the 4th game because it's a prequel. I love that game to pieces because I love the whole pirate theme and sailing around on a ship looking for treasure (Wind Waker anyone?), but also one character in particular just had fantastic development that I still think about from time to time. There are some characters in this game that end up shaping the 1st game that you learn about which is pretty neat! It is definitely not everyone's cup of tea though. I personally just really enjoy collecting the 108 Stars of Destiny characters (like, mildly Pokemon on the collection deal), and you can decide character's fates, different endings, and even how they interact with other characters depending on who you did/didn't recruit!

Better late than never, but very true! No wonder.

Chrono Trigger fans will hate me for saying this, but hilariously, because Chrono Cross gives me mad Suikoden vibes because of the huge cast of characters you can choose from, I actually mesh more with the second game! The main theme Scars of Time is sosososo good too. Chrono Trigger is a master piece though for sure! My favorite part was prehistory, but I'm a huuuuge sucker for anything dinosaur related (love Ayla so much).

Whoa, they made a movie based on one of the games? That's crazy! Thankyou for giving me some good places to start! 30 hours is definitely a nice comfortable gameplay time to start out for sure. I'll try to save the 100+ once I get more familiar with the series (and it will be like a super extra awesome bonus).

Ooooh!

Tell me about it! I'm always here for game talk, so all of this is totally welcome, haha. That is a solid list! Also subscribed.

I get that! I really do need to play the original Luigi's Mansion again. When I was a kid I actually didn't like the series that much, but this is completely different now (which could have effected my rating of the game since that was the last time I played it). I will say it definitely has the best ending. It makes me cry, haha.

Infinite ammo? I'm SOLD. Ya' know, I never really thought there would be a such thing as a smoother or more natural tank controls. I'm so used to the older Resident Evils and Silent Hills I figured fixed cameras were just part of the deal!

Oh, you hadn't? There is an HD version combo of Silent Hill 2+3 on the 360! Those two are usually considered the best of the series (though playing the 3rd game is best played after the 1st since it's a sequel).

Oh, yeah! I am unfamiliar with the later games, but I heard Shattered Memories isn't bad, but definitely different. The original team as far as I remember stopped after the 4th game, so they'll all feel kind of weird in comparison to the originals.

That is true! My favorite character is Steiner. I kind of wish there was more for him in the game, boo. That also sounds like a feature I'll enjoy, lmao.

I know right?! Isn't the final boss after the boss rush also a two stage fight? I am pretty sure that's why I rage quit when I was a kid because I didn't expect there to be another stage after I got that far. That or they had a ridiculous amount of health. Yeah! I love the fact that it switches between two totally different types of gameplay pretty seamlessly; FIGHT! and building a village or protecting a village feels pretty fantastic side by side, haha. Soul Blazer and Illusion of Gaia was amazing too!
The Thousand-Year Door is the greatest game ever made.
