☆★★★★ Despite the bugs, it's really charming - a lot better than any other strict mainline games I've played from X&Y onwards. I did have a lot more fun with Legends: Arceus though - I think it felt like a love letter to the games before, while SV feel like a tentative step into the future

Welcome back! I completely forgot I left you that comment tbh But you were kind enough to actually reply after all this time, so thanks!

Oh man, it HAS been quite some time since I last played a Project Diva game, But I do have fond memories of future tone and Project diva X was my very first PD game back on my now gone PS4. I still have my switch tho! Meaning I can play Mega mix, I just haven't gotten around to buy it lol.
I do agree that future tone feels a bit too much, even with the gargantuan song list I still found myself playing the same 10 songs or so, and it does feel like it was developed with the veteran players in mind.

Once more, welcome back to the backloggery and I appreciate the reply!

the GB can be pretty rewarding to explore - there's a lot of well-reknowned classics and a diverse library of imports on region-free hardware. it's also one of the few systems where you still get something out of playing on hardware; if you watch people playing on a super GB you'll often see some ugly jittering on sprites that you wouldn't otherwise notice due to the intense ghosting on that dinky LCD screen. that quirk can also be put to use for various transparency effects that just don't work on better screens and require fancier emulator options to approximate.

back when i started collecting for GB, chris covell's page [Link] and various topics at the SB forums [Link] helped fill out my shopping list. a friend of mine has also written some more substantial analysis on some of her favorite titles in the "game boy history in 15 games" series here: [Link]

a few things in LSD can startle you, especially because there's so many things you can still encounter for the very first time even far into the game. the realization that you're never in any actual danger takes the edge off of that pretty quickly though, and you can start just losing yourself in these transitory weird experiences.

moon has been a legend for quite some time, talked up by the few that actually played it, but out of reach for non-japanese speakers due to no complete translations and a central focus on talking to the characters of its world and paying attention to what's going on with them. i'm quite sure that it suddenly getting an official release is thanks to toby fox [Link] citing it as an inspiration for undertale, even though he couldn't play it at the time

i'm guessing he probably learned about it the same way i did, from this old gamefaqs review: [Link]

yeah, i don't always have time or motivation to play something, so gaming tends to come in fits these days. power outages from summer storms have been leaving me with not much else to do other than fire up the game boy so i'm on a hot streak for the time being. we'll see how long that manages to last :U

LSD is interesting, it's an art game in the strictest sense of the word and essentially one part of a multimedia project. if you're familiar with yume nikki, it takes a good bit of inspiration from LSD, albeit not exclusively.

it's not a one sitting kind of game, that's for sure. it will take some time to reach a point where you understand the general lay of the land, and more time after that for things to start getting weirder. i'd advise treating it as an extended experience - play a bit of it each week, or come back to it between other interests. that's all if you like what it's doing in general, though. for some reason it gets sold as some kind of frightening creepypasta game? there are some startling or unsettling moments for sure, but i'd consider it very far from being horror of any kind; it's mostly just a slightly trippy chill-out kind of game.

i'm a big fan of the ps1, especially its vast and bizarre import library, so feel free to ask about it. currently i have the system on hiatus until i can get an actual PS1 as it's the majority of what i use my PS2s for and they need to get retired for their own games only before they up and die on me.
socking it!
