What’s everybody been playing recently? I just beat The Force Unleashed and I’m going back through for the holocrons. I just picked up Ninja Gaiden II and I’m getting back into Metroid Prime. And I’m usually hooked on either Left 4 Dead or Team Fortress 2.
Nothing at the moment. I just finished Wild Arms XF, then decided to hold on gaming while I work on moving back to my old house and write some stuff online. I did however spy a used copy of Breath Of Fire V aka Dragon Quarter, a game that I missed buying years ago, on a local Gamestop and I’m seriously considering buying it soon. Assuming it’s still there when I get to it.
I started Eternal Poison now. I’m confused as everloving fuck as to what is going on, the game is not big on exposition. Gameplay is… okay, but broken as hell. If I weren’t trying to overkill everything, this would be hilariously easy.
I’ve had a standby save of Etrian Odyssey for a while now, which I replay from time to time to fulfill secondary objectives before going to the second game. Currently stuck trying to get the accursed goddamn scales from the dragons, of which I’ve only gotten one so far.
Street Fighter IV and Legend of Mana are the only games I have with me, so mostly those. Street Fighter IV is disappointing, but I’m mollified by Blanka not sucking and Zangief and Sagat being comically easy and pretty fun to use. I don’t think I’ll ever work at it seriously, but it’s fun enough, I guess. It’s no HD Remix.
Cid: I wouldn’t recommend it to most people. It’s really not terrible, but it’s like…okay. Imagine Chrono Trigger, but imagine it was terribly mediocre in every respect (actually, the story seems alright). Sprinkle in an absurd encounter rate (sometimes less than one second between battles!) and an absolutely insane combat mechanic where one character can’t attack an enemy if an ally obstructs their path - usually making at least one character useless in battle without the aid of magic - and you’ve got Black Sigil.
