Invincible: 10+ beat or complete in a row
Yea I spent like half an hour working on figuring out how to beat one single type of enemy without taking damage xux; and I still haven't mastered the boomerang guys, hopefully I can figure them out soon, I'll probly get back to playing shortly after I've sent this message!

And oh my gosh, Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World has to be my new favorite game ever, everything in it is so cute, I can hardly handle it XuX its like they made it just for me... and I might like the Poochy amiibo even more than I like the game itself >w< [Link] Anyway yea the music is great, the graphics are great (I think the 3D really gives good depth and substance to everything)... its just amazing >w< I even think they improved on some Yoshi's Island standards too by doing things like not making you collect everything on a stage in one go, it actually saves the individual things you've collected separately instead of just making it into a number >w< If I had any complaint it would just be that you can't use any pre-made yoshi designs as a starting point for your own designs, but thats such a small complaint that it doesn't really matter

and yea, gosh no wonder I could never pinpoint a problem on the user interface side of things, because it was a screw rolling around causing different problems... ugh its just funny to me now but when it was happening it was a real pain xux;

Herald of Bak'laag: 500+ unfinished games
First of all thanks for taking the time to write down your impressions so far.
Good to hear that you enjoyed it so far and yeah grind levels are definitely higher in more classic RPGs.
Good job on getting the Earth Orb by the way. Items in games like that can really make you or break you at times. Dungeoneering certainly is risky and Cockatrices pretty much always mean bad news in jrpgs in general. Nothing better than getting ambushed by them and jsut turned to stone before you can even act.
That was an interesting read, so please by all means. If you feel up to it, I'd definitely be interested in reading your thoughts along the way.

And to answer your question that is indeed Digimon. 'Blast from the past' really is the right description here btw. I also used to watch th show back in the day but after that I never really payed attention to the whole franchise. Until last year when Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth came out, that is. The game looked interesting and I bought it on a whim and fell in love with it. hahaha.
Really though. That game single-handedly re-kindled my interest in Digimon and is easily my favorite game from 2016 and among my favorites in general.
Sorry for gushing a bit there, I guess a simple "yes" would have sufficed.

I wouldn't mind seeing Bautista retire a Blue Jay, I think he's still got some gas in the tank and that last year was an anomaly, but we'll see.

No problem! I'm a couple weeks late myself. Means a lot, things are settled in good, for sure.

I just got frustrated and decided to give my info to a friend who really wanted the game. It was the generation of delays, and I wasn't in the mood for another one unfortunately, especially not off the console entirely.

We tried a little Christmas Nights, but both of us aren't too great at Nights, I kept getting to the last loop and running out of time, while he actually made it to the boss, but didn't know what to do. On the PSN version, I've gotten to the boss too, so I can do it, I just wasn't playing that well today. Also it was my first time playing Xmas Nights. It's cool and all (we actually played Nights Limited Edition first, which I didn't even know it had), but we have a long ways to go if we wanna get good at it.

Yakuza 0 actually has an overall 5 star rating on Amazon last I saw, and that's a pretty damn hard thing to accomplish once you've passed a certain number of reviews. Last I saw, it had around 73, and the VAST majority of them were 5 stars, only a tiny fraction were 1 or 2 stars. It makes me...incredibly happy that it's doing so well and people are liking it so much.

I don't really know how much use I'd get out of them, since I'm getting the IndieGo and Sigma, but they'd be nice to have as a Sega fan.

That and my Wii and Wii U have been pretty major dust collectors compared to all my other systems. I even use my classic Sega systems FAR more than them, especially Saturn and Dreamcast. My Wii got busted somehow, it powers on, but doesn't recognize any of my Wiimotes...not sure why, but my Wii U still plays Wii games. I think I only really played my Wii up until a few months or so after it got released, and same for Wii U, really. Maybe a bit more because of Bayonetta 2 and Star Fox Zero (which...kinda wasn't too great). Same with 3DS, really, although I've generally played that a lot more...but I still use my Vita and Shield Portable more, I feel. I just...I dunno, I guess I'm not really super into Nintendo first party games as much anymore, which is kinda sad, but...if it means skipping the Switch without regrets, I'll take it. As crappy as it sounds, I don't feel like buying the Switch is worth it for one or two games. For other systems, maybe, because at least those I know will get third party support (which will almost certainly dry up within a year or less on the Switch again)...I will say though, the portable console thing does sort of intrigue me.

Apparently I'm getting my tracking number from the IndieGo within this next week, which hopefully means I'll get it by my birthday (March 10). Maybe a bit later because it's coming from Europe. I dunno, but definitely before like April. The Sigma is coming from California though, so I'll probably get that pretty fast once it ships.

Apparently you don't even need pedals, you take cover if you let go of all the buttons. My cousin came down this weekend, and we tried Time Crisis 3, but weren't a huge fan because it split the already kind of small screen in two, making us do not as well. We tried Vampire Night, and that did let both of us play on one screen. It felt a lot easier in that the stages were short, there were only 6, and just that the screen was so easy to shoot being one big screen instead of two. We also beat Until Dawn VR, which is probably my favorite VR game, and my cousin definitely liked it a lot too. Then we beat Typing of the Dead and Cannon Spike today. I think I'd have liked the actual House of the Dead 2 more, but it was pretty funny that the characters had Dreamcast backpacks and giant keyboards. Cannon Spike was simple, yet fun

Yeah, it had kept bothering me how useless the up-thrust was, so I kept trying it in different situations, and that seems to be the best use of it. Of course, those fuckers are intimidating as hell before you figure that out! I didn't like the orange wizards in the Ocean Palace, either, because of the fire that they threw on the ground, so maybe that's just a me thing. Oh, it wasn't by choice; I just didn't know that that strategy would work, so I had to beat him the hard way; it sucked.

The Marsh Cave is always the hardest part for me, but then again, I don't really run from battles, because I'm a hard-headed old woman, and we don't do that. This, of course, makes shit harder for me, and makes me almost entirely incapable of playing the likes of Silent Hill. I don't remember the Earth Cave being that difficult for me, but the difficulty of any given dungeon crawl in the original Final Fantasy is a matter of luck; what are you going to encounter, and what unspeakable horrors are they going to unleash upon you? Usually, though, once you get to the boss, you're fine; it's the random encounters that do their best to wear you down gradually... or not so gradually. Like with the Earth Cave, the boss and sub-boss are both weak against fire; it's no coincidence that Fire 3 becomes available in Melmond.

You can do almost anything in ASM, though some things could potentially cause a system crash, if the system doesn't know what to do with it. I mean, people freak the fuck out about Bullet Bill launchers on top of enemies in Super Mario Maker, but with ASM, you can put them in enemies, or anywhere else you want. There are several level editors out there for NES Platformers, some easier to use than others; I'd figured that there would be one for something as popular as Kirby's Adventure. Of course, there's no guarantee that I'll be able to do what I want with it; I tried one for Super Metroid, where I tried to put the final form of Mother Brain in the tunnels of Maridia, but every time I'd enter a place that I'd put her, the whole game would crash.

Well, I think that Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks prove that they can. I mean, they're 3D Zeldas on a Nintendo portable console, and what kind of Zelda was A Link Between Worlds, which came out after them? 2D Zelda. Maybe they'll charge less for them or whatever, but I don't think that 2D Zeldas will entirely die, since we've had 3D on handhelds for a while, now.

When you get around to trying the Tales series, if you'd like suggestions on what to start with, let me know - I've played all of the stateside-released ones, so I should be able to provide a good idea.
It's dangerous to go alone! Take a yoshi!
