Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box

☆★★★★ A must-play, though still the weakest entry in the Professor Layton series. Here the setting and characters feel somewhat less interesting than usual; a certain undefinable quality is lacking. Also, on the puzzle side of things, there is too much emphasis on pure math more often than there should be. On the other hand, the enhancements it makes to systems from the first game are all very much welcome, and quite fankly, essential. Solving puzzles feels like a smoother task from here on in.

Game Center CX: Arino no Chousenjou (Retro Game Challenge)
[RA] Beaten on August 28, 2012; all subgames beaten to their endings, except Guadia Quest (hidden stairway used).

Updated about 2 weeks ago

☆★★★★ Watching the show drastically changed my perspective on this title. Back when I first played it, I didn't really have enough context to enjoy all this game had to offer. Now that I look at it from Arino's perspective, it became far more interesting, ranking as a grand homage to retro gaming. Despite some flaws, a lot of care and dedication was obviously poured into it, not only in the subgames, but in the magazines and manuals too. Also, the Haggleman series is truly memorable and interesting.

WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!
[100th Complete!] Replaying with Retro Achievements; finally completed on March 9, 2014, after some ten years restarting the game over and over.

Updated about 2 months ago

★★★★★ When this game came out, it left me fascinated with how utterly unique it was. In many ways, I still feel that way. There is great variety and creativity in the graphics department, while sound stands out with unorthodox music and effects. Gameplay is frantic and remains interesting throughout, creating complex challenges around very simple interactions. The interface is immersive and functional, and feels quite refined. Characters are engaging, and the range of microgames offered is wide.

Thanks for the response! I definitely plan to give it a shot. Not sure where I'll begin, but probably some weird NES RPG or the like. I'll add you for sure, and be sure to let you know my thoughts on whatever given sets I decide to run through.

Hey man! I noticed you're playing a lot of games with Retro Achievements. They seem really interesting, how would you rate the overall quality of the achievements you've done so far?

That site has interested me for years, but it always seemed super niche with not enough people making achievement lists for games. It is such a fantastic idea.

I appreciate that, but my OCD won't allow me to start in the middle of a series except in a couple very rare exceptions. EO4 did definitely look like the ideal place to start based on what I read about the franchise, and it's undeniably a huge step up in terms of both looks and QoL from what I can see. Very few people even recommend the original EO anymore. But I didn't find it too bad to get into, and much enjoyed my time with it. If and when I get the hankering for some more Etrian Odyssey I will probably jump into EO2 with both feet.

Why thank you, good sir! Persona Q made me appreciate the formula, so I thought I'd give it a go. A stiff challenge, but using Immunize + Defender for FOEs and bosses and Allslash + Ambush for random battles made it a not-too-difficult experience.

No braver than you though, I see. You've got many an Etrian Odyssey game on me. If they're as long and tough as this one, you have way more to be proud of!

It's really something so far, I agree, though I haven't put a lot of time into one since... the first Batman, I think. The combos and stuff are neat, though I do already have a few concerns about the races and the dojos, but we'll see; I'm enjoying what I've seen so far. Probably the most time I've put into the character creator out of any of them so far, but I don't know the license at all, so that might have something to do with it. Not that I knew a lot of Star Wars characters, either, mind. I watched my lady play the first Marvel Super Heroes, and that turned me away a bit; the races seemed like they were going to bother me, and there were an awful lot of them, from what I saw, so I can imagine that the second one goes all in on stuff like that. It's a shame, too, because a superhero game in that style with millions of characters would be right up my alley, normally.
You are yourself. There's no one else you could be.
