Your English is beautiful, man. How have you acquired the skill to weave and thread words like that?
I myself am biased towards Old English prose and diction; contemporary English can be a beauty as well but hard to master considering how saturated our generation is with uneducated slang and pure laziness.

It must have been Zephyr... I never notice any names of enemies that I'm fighting, since I usually have the map screen showing. Thanks for the helpful suggestions! It turns out that I just wasn't drawing the seal fast enough...

I remember us talking about The Walking Dead S1 before, since we both chose the same final words of wisdom. Funny, of the two people I've asked, so far I'm the only one that decided to hack off Lee's arm.

More than likely, I'll save SMT IV: Apocalypse for a while. It'll most likely sit on the shelf for a bit if I happened to add it sooner than later. It's Odin Sphere Leifthrasir that I want most, currently.

Nice, half-way point! Everything is (usually) downhill from here... I would have an issue too, with the consumables. In nearly every game I play, they are pretty much reserved for boss fights, and emergencies, only - it saved my ass plenty in Vagrant Story recently.

Sadly, it's currently technically impossible to get the final achievements in Adventure Capitalist. Before the last update, someone did the math on how much idle time would be needed at max boost level (that includes using real money to buy boots) and the total time came to, and I'm serious here, more years that the current suspected age of the universe times two. An update months later cut that down very slightly, it's still up there.

SMT IV: Apocalypse will release here in late September, on the 20th I think... It's listed on GameStop already. I would like to add it shortly after release! Looks like I finished SMT IV at just the right time. How convenient.

In the Bravely Second demo, I'm still at the very beginning. Not one battle fought! Stopped playing after unlocking the job selection screen. For some reason, the dialogue bits are making it difficult to get into. I'm in no hurry to get the sequel though, so it will probably be a long while before I get into the demo.

I see that you beat Xenosaga 2 before April ended, like you had hoped. Very nice! And on to the third, once finished with Dragon Age: Origins? Good luck with that one then. You must be liking the Xenosaga titles quite a bit!

It almost sounds like Mass Effect would be more liked than Fallout. Perhaps it's a title to try getting the other half into? Not boring and slow-moving like he thought Fallout 3 was... He loved and played the hell out of Wolfenstein: The New Order.

Dragon Age sounds interesting too, though I don't really get into Western RPGs like I used to. If it's similar to Skyrim, it might be another that the other half could get in to. How is your adventure coming along?

It sounds like Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam could be a title that I'd be interested in! Back in the day, I really liked Super Mario RPG, but could never get beyond the "Power Rangers" boss battle. I will surely be looking into Paper Jam more, some day.

Thank you! I really liked Vagrant Story by the time the credits rolled. I always knew it'd be one of my favorites, once I finally beat it... Sixteen years later! Funny thing is, I went right back and started New Game+ and I rarely ever do that. Nearly ready to beat it again, hopefully with 100% map/chests this time.

I never really discovered much of a method for fighting monsters/bosses in the game, though... Didn't even know that your RISK can decide what attacks are used on you! My timing for defending against spells is terrible, but I do okay against physical attacks. So Magic Ward is my best friend, blocking most magic attacks.

Nearly out of room, so I guess I'll end this here.

I know what you mean. Aside from daily tasks and other games to play, I've been grinding to get the Gibbering Gemstone and finish that damn staff. Then I really need to run bounties so I can clear out my Cube-able items. The Hardcore run is on the bottom of the list.

I think you mean next Friday. The schedule says the next season starts on the 29th.

I've been meaning to put more time into a hardcore run, but I've gotten into the habit of only playing D3 during a season. I feel that I'm comfortable enough with running Witch Doctor as a pure pet class that I won't have much in the way of problems, particularly if I can get the right item drops early on.

Well, hopefully I'll someday get to play some of the earlier Shin Megami Tensei games. I really liked IV! And now I have SMT IV: Final to look forward to, now that I know about it. One of these days, I'll have to look into it and find out more. Like a possible release date for the U.S.?

How is the demo of Bravely Second? I downloaded it from the eShop once I first read your comment. Haven't gotten around to playing it yet. Too busy with the Vita again...

I'm surprised that I'm even slightly curious about the sequel! The repeating chapters, and impossible final boss I ended up getting, in Bravely Default were so frustrating and tedious. I really liked it otherwise! It is good to hear that they kept that repetition out of the sequel. The combat and crowns were so much fun that I'd appreciate some more.

So Mass Effect is similar to Fallout I would assume? Being a hybrid of RPG and shooter? It looks like you've taken a break from that one as well now. Back to Xenosaga 2 then?

I don't know a whole lot about Dragon Age either... Probably because it's a console/PC title, I assume. Another Western RPG and/or dungeon crawler? That's what it sounds like. I have heard the name before.

Good luck with Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer! That's awfully nice of her to do for you. I've started it a couple of times now, usually making it to the first village. Never gotten any further in to it, not sure why... It's not a bad game and looks like something I would have fun with. Just need to give it the time!

Not familiar with Paper Mario: Sticker Star either, or any title from that series. They've been explained to me before, along with the Mario and Luigi titles. I remember one being more like RPGs, then the other I can't remember... Mini games? They both seem too much in price to take a chance on, when there are other titles I would rather spend the money on first.

Another lengthy one!

I hadn't visited backloggery in a bit (mostly due to work) and I only just finally got your message, a couple of weeks later.
So, Stardew Valley! It looks like you played Harvest Moon - Friends of Mineral Town. Stardew Valley reminds me of that but taken to the next level. It's a familiar formula but with much more open-ended gameplay and lots of customization. You can place crafted items (chests, sprinklers, resource makers, etc.) down wherever you want, move furniture around in your house, craft all manner of things for your farm, pay the carpenter to build and/or demolish buildings, etc. There's no exact right way to play it. You have to find your own path and it's a blast. I would highly recommend it!

Might and Magic VI is turning out to be a way longer game than I anticipated. I think I've maybe explored about 1/3 of the world map so far and I've already logged in about 20 hours! I'm still having a blast playing it though. Finally starting to get some buff and protection spells (it really helps).

I think it has to do with the frequency of times you revive with Play Coins in SMT IV. After leaving my last comment, I was saving much more often. Saving at nearly every doorway/entrance/exit. So the need to be revived became rare. Sometimes, it would be as low as 8 PCs, but never reaching over 15 like it was.

It took me nearly ninety hours to beat the game. I must have been momentarily insane to think I'd be near finished after only forty hours. I think it just felt so fast that I assumed I'd be done in just a couple more days. Silly girl!

Chaos ending for me, just like in Strange Journey. Probably because I liked Walter better than Jonathan, and Jimenez better than that annoying chick in SJ. I've yet to get a Law, or Neutral, ending. I wish I was smart like you and grabbed that Nothing ending, then just restarted my save file! Getting the Neutral ending will definitely take a guide. It sounds like it'd be near impossible without one.

The leveling didn't seem to slow down at all. At times, I think it got faster in certain areas! Especially after hitting that button for the first time. I probably had a little too much fun summoning much lower leveled demons from the compendium, then watching the exp. bar move as I gained 4-5 levels after battles.

I almost wish it didn't go by so fast. Now that it's beaten, I miss playing it. Tempted to start New Game+ already, but it took so long the first time. I'm having trouble deciding what to play next...

Nocturne is a part of the SMT games, right? Isn't it the second, or third, title? I would probably like to play that one, if it is a part of that series. If only I had the means to do so! I'll have to go with the Devil Survivor titles on 3DS next.

Looks like you're still in a bit of a rut? You haven't beaten anything in a while. I no longer see Radiant Historia in the Play List. You must have temporarily given up on the completion attempt. How much do you have left in Mass Effect? I'm not familiar with that title... A FPS? Or some sort of shooter, right? Hopefully, the mood to play Xenosaga 2 will strike soon and you'll be back on track!

Awesome, thanks a lot for your comment!

The game itself was incredibly hard at first. Upon reading a few beginner guides, I picked up a few tips here and there to give myself a fair chance. For instance, first time I tried the game, I ended dying to a horde (and in M&M6, a horde, is more like an army) or enemies. Second time around, I had bows for my characters, giving me at least a chance to slim down the oncoming push of the opposing force.

The game is actually starting to grow on me. The menus are quite easy to use once you understand them and the music is spot on. Speaking of music, I also don't like being in a dungeon in which you hear enemy grunts and similar noises as part of the music when there aren't anyone around. It keeps me on my toes for sure, but it's a bit annoying.

I made a party of Knight/Paladin/Druid/Sorcerer. Loving it so far

When was the last time you played this game?

Sadly, I had to learn that lesson the hard way... To save often in SMT IV. It didn't take very long to go through my Play Coin reserve. I had nearly three-hundred when I first started the game! Took just a couple days to use them up. Now, I rarely have more than fifteen and save every half hour at least. If only I had saved often in the beginning... I could have just reloaded my game instead and saved the P-Coins!

I've been tempted to put more time into Majora's Mask, or even start Dementium II, just to let them build back up again. I'm having too much fun playing SMT IV to want to stop though... I've seen revival costs in the higher twenties!

Apologies for taking so long with my response. A bit slower than usual... Life has been sort of kicking my ass recently.

Congrats on the M&M: Clash of Heroes beat! It sounded like you were enjoying it a bit from your progress updates. Almost makes me want to play it again.

If you get lucky and find one early on, the Nagelring is a major game changer when it's power is extracted. Basically spawns one exploding NPC every 10 seconds that almost always one-shots anything that isn't an elite. Last season, finding one right off the bat allowed me to raise the difficulty to Torment and coast through most of the game. One you're just farming riffs, another game changer is the Illusory Boots, which allow you to run right through mobs without being blocked.

What you had said about recent Shining entries seems to have held true so far because I literally quit playing halfway both through Neo and EXA. Just awfully designed and a waste of time.
Really sad. I ought to delve in the earlier entries as I had great fun with the GBA remake of the 1st one. I also am a fan of Silent Hill, though I've only finished 1 and 2. Silent Hill team nips it in the bud when it comes to atmosphere.

Wow, I can't believe I don't remember all of that... I must have received the normal ending, since that sounds about right. Maybe I looked away just long enough, after the credits started, to miss the part that follows? I have a tendency to update BL, or w/e else, while the credits roll. A bad habit it has proven to be, it seems.

Maybe, someday, I will attempt some of the other endings? Same with the second title. First though, I am considering giving in to the temptation of the third title!

Added a note in the wishlist entry for ZE: Virtue's Last Reward to avoid losing my save data. Thanks for the reminder of what the glitch was and how to spare myself from it! That would be absolutely terrible to have to start from scratch. Especially if you've already received a few of the endings.

Congratulations on your completion of it! How long of a wait for the third title? I recall seeing it on GameStop's website already, just can't remember the date... Not that it matters, for me, since I still have to repurchase and finish the second.

Man, in the first season of The Walking Dead, I remember sometimes having no choice but to do a terrible thing. Having to choose w/e you think is the lesser evil. That game was just brutal!

So far, the second season has wasted little time in bringing that feeling back... It's great! I need to get back to playing it!

I felt awful about that poor dog! Wanted a companion for at least a little while longer. And I must agree, the part of stitching your own arm up was just gut-wrenching. It took me a while to figure out how to even do it. With this new cast, I think it might be easier to do terrible things. I don't like them much yet... That dog would have made better company, I think.

Bastion is weird. At first, I was amazed by it and having fun. Then, it started to get repetitive and boring for a while... Up until the last few levels. After I started paying more attention to weapon upgrades and completing vigils. Now I need to play New Game+ if I want to finish what I started!

Have fun with M&M: Clash of Heroes! I enjoyed it a LOT, it was so addictive. Is the Steam title the same as the one for DS? That's the one I played.

Hope you had a great Christmas also, and a lovely new year so far! For me, the countdown to Spring has begun.

I got bogged down in all the crap the FAQers at the time wanted me to do. "You need this one thing that you can only get by walking into this wall for 10 seconds, replying, then waiting 10 real-time minutes without continuing the story or you'll miss it." Just...wacky stuff like that. The end goal was to get Shion some crazy game breaking healing skill. But even the guides at the time didn't explain how to use the skill system.

One of these days, I need to reacquire and retry Xenosaga. I got it back when it was new and I found it nothing but frustrating. In retrospect, it was the skill system holding me back. The game didn't really explain how to use it or that it was even there, really. Apparently it's pretty easy to screw yourself pretty hard with it.
It's breaking. Little by little.
