Decided to start my 2nd playthrough of trials of mana(2020). I beat it back at launch, but im doing a new group of 3 that I didn't use originally. Its nice that this game has replay value. Kevin is my main, with reisz and Angela as my companions.

Going back to Xenoblade 2, the first post-game blade I get is Ursula. And I heard from people about what a disaster that is to do from post-game, but a simple look both in-game and in a guide of what to do and it seemed not too much time wasting would be needed. And I could do another blade quest in the meanwhile, among some of the DLC sidequests (which clearly are meant for when you're done with much of post-game but let's ignore that). And then I find out just how many times I REALLY need to send Ursula on the same missions, repeatedly. But I do have Boreas, unlocking his affinity chart seems simple and now...I have to talk to 50 Nopon. I'm half expecting to find out there are exactly 50 nopon NPCs in the game, when I walk through one of the main towns (in day, because I'm pretty sure there'll be new people at night!), and find 4. And talking to 50 NPCs to get generic NPC dialogue I've already heard is sure...a good...video game...thing.

God bless you Xenoblade 2! You could convince me you DID live up to previous games after all with your incredible graphics, music, combat and general world design, especially since the ending was better than the average quality of the story. But nope, you have to stay bad in just the right ways at the right time to stay exactly on the line of "great but just barely". Truly the most 80/100 game I've ever played.

I imagine the designers being like "this could be an all time classic game...but nope, that's what they would be expecting."

@kkslider5552000 Quick tip you don't need to search the whole map just to talk to 50 nopon, you could just talk to the same ones in a single town and just rinse and repeat with just fast travelling.

This also applies to the girl talk affinity nodes and other talking ones in general.

Oh, I talked to one of them twice to verify that, I did not consider or check that fast travel would change anything. Thanks.

I'm currently playing Genshin again after a break, really enjoying it The best thing about taking a break is there's now so much new content for me to catch up with! I think Genshin will keep me going now until Mon Hun Rise comes out, can't wait 🙌

Started up Balloon Fight there a few days ago on NSO and have been loving it. It's extremely simple, but the floatiness and strategy needed in order to successfully pop enemy balloons is incredibly satisfying, even for a NES game. I've gotten past World (?) 3 and really want to try and beat it.

Still hopelessly addicted to Animal Crossing, and I'm trying to complete the rest of Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

My physical copy of Superliminal arrived today, and I hear it's short and sweet, so I'll try and beat that soon.

Pokemon has become a staple in my gaming diet and after replaying Soul Silver I decided to move on to...Heart Gold. I tried moving on to X or Alpha Sapphire, but honestly Johto really has its grip on me. These may be my favourite games of all time.

Outside of Pokemon I've been wanting to get back into JRPGs. To ease my way back in I've started up Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth on the Switch. I thoroughly enjoyed this back when it came out on PS4, so I look forward to experiencing it again.

Very much playing it safe at the moment!

I started playing Final Fantasy VII on my Switch – really love it and the fact, that there is a physical version of the game with FF VIII on the same cartridge.

May as well bring over my post from @DreamlandGem's thread:

I recently got Kirby and the Forgotten Land and as I said from my previous posts about it, I'm enjoying it. I haven't beaten the game yet. There's a surprising amount of hidden tasks throughout all the levels, I may go for 100% completion at some point. I love a good chunk of the levels, and the soundtrack is amazing. This game's already getting me back into Kirby - the last game, Star Allies, was kind of a disappointment for me so I'm glad that Forgotten Land turned out to be much better!

I think I'm almost close to finishing it, btw! Though, I have a feeling that 100%ing it will be pretty tough.

Last couple of days, I've been playing the classic PC game Magic Carpet. I remember buying this game during a sale from GOG years as it was under recommended games. I play it on and off.

The point of the game is you play as a wizard on a magic carpet, you explore around an open world, collecting spells to use, fighting monsters, and collecting mana. With the goal of building a castle, and filling it to mana to restore each world, even fighting enemy wizards in later levels. The best way I can describe it, it's like a first person action game with some strategy elements to it. I like it a lot.

Anyone else played this? It's on PC, but it was also released on the original PlayStation and Sega Saturn.

I believe it is roughly the year anniversary of Mass Effect Legendary Edition. I was kinda tempted to play them again, but I have played them so many times since they came out back on the 360 back in the day.

Andromeda, however, is a game I haven't played since it came out. And I played it on the Xbox One X or S whatever the high end refresh console was at that time and not only was the game a technical mess at launch, the performance on that console was generally terrible as well. Especially when it came to really long loading screens (and the game makes you trek backwards and forwards a lot, so you spent a LOT of time in long loading screens). So I figured I'd make a start on it, on PC.

I have only played the opening couple of hours and these opening couple of hours make me really sad because you kinda get a sense these were the only parts of the game that were really close to actually being finished. It is a blatant riff on ME1, but compared to the game to come (at least from memory) the back end is a shadow of this great, and promising, opening.

While Frostbite might have a lot of issues as a dev tool, and does often result in some jankiness, visually it's just hard to argue with. Andromeda, at least on PC, does not look like five year old game. If you told me it came out today, I could believe you. Sadly animation generally still isn't great despite there being a bunch of patches and while I would argue the Mass Effect games never had the greatest character creators (especially given how important they are to the whole experience), the Andromeda equivalent is an abomination.

Probably the two fondest memories I have about Andromeda were the changes to dialogue and the QOL improvements on the gameplay. So far, I am agreeing with myself here. While the whole Paragon/Renegade thing was cool in 2007, all these years later and all these playthroughs later, I think a lot of the mystique over that system has kinda worn off for me. There was a lot of nuance in the ME Trilogy lost for me because the devs had to cram choices into binary good or evil responses, meaning also that good and evil aligned with the values of the writer, not the context of you as a player.

They try and set themselves free of those somewhat in Andromeda, going for a more grey moral compass and focusing more on the emotion of the protagonist, rather than their values. How much this really makes any difference on the back end I guess won't truly ever be known, because it kinda seems Andromeda is a black sheep destined to be removed from the history.

And as an action RPG, Andromeda is just fun. All the abilities are impactful and cool, the jump jets add a dynamic to everything, you get a lot of flexibility with your build since this game made the choice to go classless. Like I think really ME3 is the only competent action game in the original trilogy and this is the first ME game that is actually genuinely fun to play.

I continued my progress of Dodgeball Academia PS4 to level up all my team until level 50 (MAX) by playing catching dodgeball mini game with reward $ 15.00 on level 3 then I bought some juices with price $ 30.00 to instant level up by 1 level, though I have to look what are the kids favorite grubs.

I continued my progress of Horse Club Adventures PS4 after playing Dodgeball Academia. I have reached the episode where the girls will investigate the sign of project on the land near of Mr O'Neill farm. Playing riding horse game like that was such a peaceful thing, no violences involved, just enjoy the beauty of landscapes. 😊

I bounce around with these games: GTA 5, NBA 2K22, and ROS.

I just started up Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu today and am currently in love. The style is beautiful, the catching mechanics are incredibly relaxing and the music is absolutely amazing (Pewter City is MUAH). I, no joke, spent an entire hour in Viridian Forest just catching everything there and evolving them up like Butterfree and Beedrill. I also spent a majority of that time looking for a Bulbasaur (even building up a catch combo of Oddish to increase my odds) and just as I was about to give up, that magnificent green bulb shot up from the grass. I've already beat Brock and I'm so excited to play more tomorrow. Plus it'll give me something to do whilst I wait for the new SV trailer to drop!

Cat Quest 1 & 2 Switch
Those games surprisingly good to play.

DDR PS3
Ugh....
I have to endure by playing the Nonstop songs from Club Mode in order to unlock the 20 hidden songs (Konami original songs) and I keep getting terrible licensed songs to play during Club Mode. The licensed songs choice in DDR PS3 was really terrible, like what the hell was Konami thinking about by putting terrible licensed songs like from Sean Paul, Gorilaz, Jason Mraz, Jody Sparks, Ke$ha, etc on DDR PS3. What the hell with those songs, I don't even like them. Fortunately, only the Konami original songs are better but still some of them have mediocre stepcharts.

Batman Arkham City. I intend to complete it with all Riddler stuff this time around.

I want for the Arkham games to come on the Switch ... they are legendary!
