[LBD] Got another trophy! Also almost (I think) at the end of the Yangus/Jessica Sidequest! ~ Dras Lv75; Arba Town Achievements: 38 / 50 (76%)

★★★★★ This is rather enjoyable. Everything is an homage to the rest of the series, from the attacks to the music. All of the characters are very fun to experience in every way and fun to level up (until the Skill Point gain drops). I typically have Jessica (for healing), Bianca (for crowd control), and Terry (because Falcon Slash).

★★★★★ This is a wonderful remake of one of my favorite games in the series. I love the expressions on faces that they added, and the remixed music is amazing. The DexNav is undoubtedly the best addition to this game, and I hope they continue it in future installments. I really wish they'd added the character customization from X/Y, though.

★★★★★ [Master Run: Nuzlocke - Death Count: 6] There is a lot of stuff in this game. It's a great remake of Gold/Silver. I also really love how the Pokemon follow you around, and the Pokéathlon is probably the best set of mini-games in the series.

★★★★★ [Master Run: Solo Non-Evolving Run - Mankey Lv88 in Hall of Fame] [Master Run: Nuzlocke - Death Count: 4] This is a great remake of Blue, with all of the mechanics and types from later games brought in. The Sevii Islands were kind of pointless, but whatever.

[R] I forgot how long it takes to get Honedge to evolve, but at least I had a Delphox for the gym! ~ Route 12; 149 Seen, 104 Caught

★★★★★ [Master Run: Nuzlocke - Death Count: 3] This felt like a new Pokemon game, as opposed to the previous 4 generations that felt like "Predecessor Plus". I think the character customization and new Pokémon models/battle cries really helped make this feel like a fresh experience, even with a ton of returning Pokémon. I wasn't impressed with the majority of the new Pokémon, but that's the only real downside I found to this game.

★★★★★ This was my first Tales game, and one of my favorites. I love all of the characters, the plot is interesting, and the battle mechanics are great.

DQ: I'm not sure WHY I like 9 so much honestly: Everything about it is things I normally HATE in games O_o; Actually the multiplayer is local-only, that part wasn't affected at all by the wifi shutdown. Unfortunately, the only way to get the DLC now is to link up with someone with the data or use an AR. I need to figure out which version of AR will work for me. Seems like most of them only work on a DSi or Lite, and most of the ones on 3ds won't work with ds games.

Pokemon: I've played HG, but I don't really consider that Gen 4 since I played it because it was basically an upgraded Gen 2 xD Might try Sapphire at some point, or maybe AS (my best friend has OR so it'd make sense to get that one)

DQ: Have you played 9? Loved that one, especially with the multiplayer! I plan to play 7-8 after I finish 6

Pokemon: That's sad about not going back to previous gens; I still have zero interest in 4-5, but I've slowly been warming up to the idea of trying 3. 2 will always be an all-time favorite for me. 1 is... hard to go back to though, I'll agree with you there xD

And I'm liking it a lot! I liked the plot better in 5, but 6 has some amazing mechanics and worldbuilding!

I hesitated for a moment and thought I just imagined it, but then I suspected that I caught you.

Yeah, the grind in Berseria can be a bit much. Can't exactly blame you for going after something easier. Realistically, there's no way you would get all those title requirements while doing everything else the game has to offer. I hope they stop with that in the next game because some of it was worse than the special ability grinds in Xillia/Xillia 2. Just a fraction of the required amount would still make people try all the characters eventually without making it a mindless grind.

I see you weren't able to get one of those coveted special edition cartridges of Fire Emblem Fates. I thought it was rather odd for you to suddenly drift off into these other games with all you have going on here.

You have to let me know how Star Ocean 5 is when you get to it. I might buy it eventually, who knows.

I imagine all the Pokemon takes a ton of time! Especially with how much grinding certain generations take. I love Pokemon to death though. Have you found the grinding discouraging all at once or do you not mind? This is actually quite inspiring. Makes me want to play Pokemon again since I haven't in a while.

So given how much you liked the Wario Land games, does Odyssey remind you of the powerups in Wario Land 2/3? Just thought of that, and thought you'd appreciate that.

How strange, happy belated Ring Day to you as well then!

Glad your marathon isn't so grueling. Do you care at all about collecting Shinies? I made a habit of attempting to always go for a Shiny Starter and it's really been ruining my experiences since I intend to obsess over such a thing. I need to break that part of myself.

I'm fully supportive of it being in the number 1 spot! (also very supportive of Skies of Arcadia's placement). You said you played 3 pieces of garbage, I didn't think there were that many bad Dragon Quest games? (I kid, I kid) I'm looking forward to getting back to playing Berseria. I ended up going through Zestiria in 2017, so my Tales game this year can be Berseria haha.

And congrats on Beating your backlog again! Awesome accomplishment for the year.

Well that's a shame given that the Galaxy games are so universally loved compared to the other ones you mentioned, which are much more love/hate or mixed. I don't even recall that many levels where you're always upside down - especially in the sequel - but that might just show how natural it all felt to me if there were much more after all.

Whoa, wait a minute there. I thought you didn't care quite as much for BotW. I think I may have said this the wrong way. I only can't agree because I think BotW is my #1. Sure, the Koroks drove me up a wall but that's my own fault for being such a die-hard completionist. I don't consider BotW anything less than a masterpiece, if it ever came across as anything else during my painful road to 100%. I haven't gone back for the DLC myself, but that's mainly because I'm so overwhelmed by my current timesinks that it just has to wait for its turn. I'd like to save it for a full new playthrough years down the line, but it's gonna be hard avoiding spoilers for that long.
Ironic that I play all of the cool colors, like Green and Sapphire, yet only start with Fire-types.
