Master of Unlocking: Majority of games are completed
Hey, I was on a kind of gaming hiatus for quite some time and thus didn't get to respond to your kind message from a while back, so, with a delay of nine months: Thank you! Honestly, as a JRPG gamer in particular, and with my gaming style, I wouldn't be surprised if "stopping a game before it is complete" never ceased being a thing. By this point, I wouldn't even call it a bad habit anymore, since it happens against best intentions time and again over the years – and I don't think any JRPG gamer would want to quit before completion if it can be helped, since getting back in there is very hard depending on what kind of gamer you are! The long play times, missables, amount of side quests, things to keep track of – no wonder life has a way of butting in and killing the required long-term attention!

I'm not trying to be pessimistic though, just saying that there's more to it than habits, and thus to not let a backlog consisting of half-finished games discourage you or keep you from picking up something else that you'd enjoy more at that moment.

I hope you enjoy the games you're going to play this year!!

Consider Yourself a Hero: Majority of games are beaten
On Fire: 3 beat or complete in a row
On Gurumin: the controls are mostly fine, although the Steam port has a few issues like not being able to remap controls and needing to use Big Picture to get controller support working at all.

I think the camera is the only real issue. It can be a big one at times because it's hard to keep track of enemies and some jumps are a lot harder than they need to be. You can sort of control what you're looking at with the right stick and the shoulder buttons, but the game clearly wants to use certain angles and sometimes I end up fighting it to look at what I want.

Other than that, it's a pretty cute game that's not too hard--just pleasant to boot up and play through a few areas when you've got some time to spare.

It’s alright. You will like it if you are into Victorian England tour of media. 7.5/10 I would say. Pretty good.
