Thank You!

I think I enjoyed the characters and story better in Disgaea 1, but the gameplay in Disgaea 2 is just so much better. They made things so much easier. I never went into the Item World in Disgaea 1, but I spent my entire time in the Item World in Disgaea 2. NIS games in the PS2 era are GOLDEN! They made some of the best SRPG during that time. If a PS2 game had NIS or Atlus on the box, it immediately piqued my interest!

I'm glad you were able to score a copy of Atelier Iris 3. It is very different from the first two, but I still really enjoyed it. It gets a bit long and repetitive, especially near the end. But, it is such an interesting concept and the characters/story are just so much fun!

I hope you enjoy Disgaea 2! It is such a great game.

I had so much going into the item world and doing so many random battles.

Congratulations on the Pokemon Beat!

*Laughs* Going to work and paying a mortgage isn't actually all that impressive. Once you get in a routine and know how to save money, it can be quite easy. And if there is one thing I am good at, it is enjoying a routine!

Work has been interesting. When I walk in, I have to show my badge and I got my temperature taken this morning. We have had several cases at my hospital, so things are now on locked down. My city was just told to stay at home, so starting tomorrow, I'm working from home from now on. With being stuck at home for the near future, it feels like when I was unemployed a few years ago for months at a time.

Was P3 worth the time investment? Well, yes and no.

Yes, because I stopped asking myself this question a long time ago. A game's a game, so it's best to try and have fun while you're at it. Even if you find the game to be not so great, there's certainly some merit to it. At least now I know what Persona gameplay and storytelling is about.

No, because, oh my God is it tedious and boring. It just doesn't know where to stop and goes on an on and on and on, and nothig really ever changes or even ever happens in it; it's just these endless, uninspired dungeons and a primitive simulation mode. And I am still playing it because the bad ending I got was not a real ending... I have to really finish it.

So, bottom line, while there are some interesting aspects, I completely fail to see why this game was praised so much. Maybe 2006 (original release) and 2010 (PSP re-release) were really low years for JRPGs. I don't know, maybe it's just me, and I should take a break from this genre for a while. Anyway, sorry for the rant. Be safe and try to have fun during this zombie apocalypse

I hope everyone on the Backloggery is keeping well during the global health crisis. Certainly I wish that none of you or your closest get sick, but even without direct contact, the virus can wreak havoc on a person's mental state. This situation is nothing but panic, worry, and negativity for the populace at large. It's important to promote a positive mental attitude directed both inwardly to keep ourselves grounded and outwardly for the sake of our local communities and society as a whole. Take all the necessary measures to reduce the spread of infection, but please don't neglect your own mental health with extreme actions that would limit your basic needs as a human being. With that out of the way...


Congratulations to Pokemon - Red Version, my 575th Beaten Game!

Gen 1 Pokemon was integral to my childhood gaming history. Released when I was in elementary school, it was likely the first RPG I ever played and my introduction to those tantalizing game mechanics of building a party and progressively increasing their strength. Though I can't recall which of us had Red or Blue, it was one of the only games that my brother and I each owned a copy, giving me a greater sense of personal attachment to it over the many games I shared with my siblings. So I have a lot of fond, nostalgic sentiment for it, which is why it gets this milestone.

And naturally it couldn't live up to my memories. There have been too many quality-of-life improvements to the Pokemon series for me to accept the limits of Gen 1. Worst of all was the ridiculously limited space for item storage. What felt like a challenging and vibrant game as a kid was now at times a slog through a surprisingly small and uninteresting world. I was able to get some enjoyment out of my replay. Not all the Gen 1 sprites are winners, but some of them are still cute to see in the original style. The basic Pokemon gameplay was still fun, even if I only cared about my six-party team and didn't really catch anything besides them. The best part, though, was simply digging into an area of my past that I had spent much time with as a child and now ruminating with it as an adult.


I'm off from school due to enforced closures, so I have a generous amount of time for gaming right now, and yet I still find other ways to dwindle my free time away. Already I feel as though time keeps moving faster. I'm sure it gets even more ephemeral from here on in.

Oh wauw, I should do that. Gotta say though, I discovered some new vaporwave albums myself recently. Especially HKE was a nice surprise. And that album from Nxxxxxs with the fancy artwook as well.

I agree Hehe Yeah i've heard that those games are pretty big time investments, good ones though :P Yeah tv-series and movies are pretty good passive entertainments cause you can do stuff while they're on Thank you, happy to hear that you're also learning something new, it's never too late for that! And doing it in a game sounds like win win to me :P

Yes! I'm 15 hours in and up to now it's an excellent game.

It's full of style and the gameplay is so fluid. It sure deserves to be in your top 5 haha

Out of curiosity, which are the other four?
