☆☆★★★ I didn't realize that the base game didn't have this Ver.2 content. I'm learning a little more about the game this way. Kinda wish there was more room for items at the bank, but I'll manage somehow.

☆☆★★★ Definitely not a fan of the "online service" model the game is using. It looks good, though! Just wish they had all the things I want in the game right out the gate: Nintendo Items Returning Furniture Pocket Camp Furniture Kapp'n's Island

Felt a little Paper Mario nostalgia, so I've been chomping at the bit for this physical release. One chapter in, and having a good time!

BabyP thought I'd like to play it, so he got it for me and asked to let him play it when he wants. Thanks! Definitely different, but still playable.

☆☆☆★★ Well. The core components were neat, but this definitely feels like a mobile game port. The pacing and gameplay depth are considerably short-sighted.

☆☆★★★ I find the art style pretty offensive, but the game mechanics are pretty fun.

I got 2 black DS2s in good condition not that expensively, and an additional blue one for my bf because he said that's his favorite color of DS2. I would have picked some emerald one for cheap for myself but I noticed it too late.

I don't have a family... except for the bf... I actually haven't met his' yet, despite the 2.5 years of being together... strangely. The bf went back yesterday to his parents until 29th or 30th. But I've made peace with xmas pretty much. And my cash flow this year has been the most decent for me so far (26k in 7 months only by composing game music) so I've treated myself with de luxe handbags, clothes and jewellery and other nice things every week or couple of weeks (like, really, I blew all of it). A refreshing change of pace to be honest!

That reminds me I need to delete any lower-quality duplicate of music in my soulseek hoard. On another note I've bought CDs this year! And cassettes. Which I haven't in a very very long time. (Yeah it's mostly the money)

Ah yeah, Monster Rancher is a really cool concept that feels like it could have only really worked in the era it's from. I can't say that I've played any of them except the very first one, but I recall that game being pretty barebones so more gameplay systems is definitely welcome.

I think there are mobile and PC ports of Monster Rancher 1 / 2 now... but it works via some searchable in-game music database, which kind of feels like it scrubs away a lot of the character. Maybe there's at least a backup method where you can still use an actual CD drive? I'm not sure.

That's sick that you're gonna be playing PSO on Dreamcast in 2021. It's really not a game that I have any history with personally, but I think getting it all up and running in the modern era is cool as hell. In a similar vein, I've been kicking around the idea of trying to get people together for either Four Swords or Crystal Chronicles.

And you've more or less guessed it! I'm still slowly working on my game... I actually just put up the store page for the full version today, check it out if you want: [Link]

SMT V has been a lot of fun too. I was wondering if after the success of Persona 5 if Atlus would lean into that style of game more, but it's almost the opposite. It's a straight up dungeon crawler and honestly has the least emphasis on story out of the few SMT titles I've played (Digital Devil Saga I & Strange Journey). It's pretty addictive game and really excels at what it does. It also has a ton of different situational battle BGMs, which I'm a big fan of. It's strange how there are a lot of JRPGs where half the runtime is battles, but they only have a couple different battle tracks.

I'm..... not actually playing anything right now... I'm too busy for video games! I actually attempted to play some ps2 game in my break time recently only to find that my 2 controllers were missing 1 pin each, which stopped me in my plans...
So many day-one game purchases from last year and this year and I've barely beat any of them...
Also what's up on your side of things?

Long time no talking! You should reach out to me when you finish Bug Fables, I want to discuss it, but don't want to spoil your first impression if you're still early like your log suggests.

The soundtrack is really great so far, but I'm struggling a little with the combat style. The levels feel oddly patient, and the bosses super punishing. Maybe I'm just not in the swing of things yet. I do want to like it though.

Thankfully, it probably didn't actually break again. Maybe not but hopefully. It just hurt the same exact way as last time when it did break, so I was just quick to assume and pessimistic as usual. Or perhaps it did break but somehow gained faster bone healing powers since last time. Either way I'm glad I can articulate my hand with no problem now. Sorry if I made you worry...!

Thanks! Oh hold on. I forgot to change "pfp custom animation" to "oc pixelart/animation" when I changed my pfp from [Link] to this current one.
I obviously did not "draw" the Yoshi from Mario World but I did animate it for it to look like it's from Yoshi's Island (I must be dogshit at animating because nobody recognizes the other Yoshi I'm referencing lol).
I did fully make the girl sprite! And you're totally right, it is a challenge to cram as much detail in the smallest space possible while keeping it readable. I'm really glad you think I did good, thank you again. : P
I did this one before which sorta utilizes the same model frame. [Link] Making the new one realizes I messed up the old one's feet movement. lol c:

I mean, it's broken, and it hurts, but I'm still able to play, and even play guitar! The problem is I'll HAVE to go to the hospital and get another cast, for the second time this year. They removed my cast in mid-April last time, so I figure I just reverted all the healing I've done, too. So yeah that means once my arm is in cast I won't be able to play anything for a month. I waited about 1 week last time before going to hospital, because I thought I could tough it out. It's been about 5 days since I broke it again now, gonna have to go soon...

I'm not sure I'll ever find the resolve to play more X games. X4 was supposed to be one of the good ones and it's just miserable from the start, and everyone says X5 is an even worse rehash. Is it really worth it?
