I've been playing Shining Force II. Man this game is fun.

The Game Boy Advance game, right? One of my all-time favorites. Wouldn't mind seeing another game in the series, or an HD remake for the Switch.

@HobbitGamer It all started from Graveyard Keeper? Is that a game, or what?
By the way: congratulations to us, and let's celebrate, because I don't know if you were already aware, but it's National Pineapple Day today.

@bimmy-lee Good to know, and very much appreciated. Of course, the same is true for a trip to Amsterdam. And I'll see your open door, and raise you with a "I'll be your personal tour guide"...

Your town sounds like a place that I could definitely entertain myself in. More than enough to do, and a nice place to relax and wind down from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Glad you knew what the heck I was talking about concerning bears on the road. Sometimes, I mix stuff up in my head, due to always thinking in English, but obviously mostly speaking Dutch during the day.

I'm no parent myself, but from the sound of it, your kids are pretty lucky to have a dad who is able to keep them from spending most of their time behind one screen or another, and stimulates them to develop themselves by natural means. Spot on, if you ask me. Entertainment is always fun, and can be educational as well, but it's good and beneficial for them to know that there's actually a real and tangible world out there as well.

@ThanosReXXX Yes! It's similar to Stardew Valley, but you're a gravekeeper!
And I've already got my Philidelphia brand pineapple cream cheese in celebration

Thanks all for the kind words. It does mean a lot because parenting can feel like constant failure. It’s a humbling endeavor. I was also big into Legos as a kid. The themed sets are just about all you can find in store these days, and they’re outrageously expensive. Luckily, I found a used toy shop years ago, and they sell big bags of regular Legos for cheap. The owner told me he pretty much has an endless supply, so I bought out the entire shelf, took them home, soaked them in soapy water, dried them out, and now they have a giant bin full of them. My kids love them too. It’s fun to see your kids enjoy something you also enjoyed. Thanks again.

@ThanosReXXX No, the Sega version. I think it was only the original that was ported to GBA

@HobbitGamer Ah, pineapple cream cheese. A rare treat over here, these days. Used to be VERY popular in the nineties, but the anti-pineapple ninjas must have stepped in at some point, because save for a few specialty stores, it's almost completely disappeared nowadays.

@bimmy-lee I don't know if (part of) that comment was for me, because you forgot to tag anyone, but if so, you're more than welcome. It isn't really hard to notice that you're a more than okay person, so if even half of that rubs off on your kids, then we've got yet another couple of decent passengers to populate mother ship Earth...

@RedderRugfish Ah, okay. Well, it's the same series, so I'd suspect the gameplay is more or less the same, and the game will probably be just as enjoyable as the GBA version.

This is the one that I own:

@ThanosReXXX - Man, thank you, I’m honored. It felt like enough people responded to my post with kind words that I was a bit overwhelmed. Yes, that comment was meant for you, @DenDen , and @HeavyArms55 . You all responded in kind to my post.

Graveyard Keeper is neat from the few minutes I snuck away to play it. But I didn't even think about saving; it's the same as any farming game, gotta sleep to save. So I'll be doing to beginning section again this evening, haha. From about 15 minutes, the buttons are very minimal, the ambient music is pleasant, the dialogue is dryly humorous, and the visuals are nice.

Now 5 more hours of work

@NintendoByNature A first task has you do something similar. Your character’s reaction is funny.
And you subsequently then learn the recipe for burgers...😂

@NintendoByNature - These must be a local GA product, but Hobbit has been shipping me these amazing kielbasas from a company I’ve never heard of: Soylent Sausage Company. They have a unique flavor, but they’re really good. One of them appeared to have a tattoo, but I think sometimes livestock farmers do that to identify their pigs.

Hey, I want to make sure I finish The Messenger before the DLC, but I don’t want to look online and spoil anything. I just entered the tower of time. Can you give me a rough percentage of where I’m at in the main campaign?

@bimmy-lee so you're telling me hobbit has been with holding sausage from Me? Wow...that sounds wierd when you say it out loud 😂. Sounds good though. I'm a fan of any kind of sausage. Although I've never tried blood sausage yet. I'll have to see how to get that sausage on order from ga.

As for messenger I think the first time you get to or complete the tower of time you're about 1/3 of the way thru, from what i remember, but i could be wrong. I played it about 9-10 months ago. And i recall the tower of time was a real head banger throw your switch at the wall type of level. Especially the boss.

@RedderRugfish Definitely looks like a sequel, they certainly revamped the graphics. The sound on this version is definitely inferior, though. I've always liked the Genesis, but coming from the Commodore Amiga, and knowing mostly Nintendo-only gamers besides that, I've always found the Genesis sound to be a bit tinny. Of course, skilled developers were definitely able to work around that, but in this particular game, the sound difference is the first thing that I noticed.

Might still give it a go, though. In fact, I probably already have it, since I once downloaded a complete collection of Sega Genesis ROMs for use with my various systems and emulators.

@HobbitGamer As for that Graveyard Keeper game: I do remember having read about it, probably on here, so they must have done an article on it at some point. But although it does sound somewhat entertaining, from the way you describe it, it still isn't for me. Aside from the specific topic, I've never been much of a farming game-type fan.

I actually did buy Harvest Moon for the GameCube, back in the day, but after a bit of dabbling for a couple of days, I already lost interest in it, so I think I better stick to buying games that I actually will play for more than a couple of days...
