Oh hey, I wasn't checking this board while I was really wrapped up in the best game of 2019.

I, too, have rampaged a village.

Right now I've mostly been playing Dragon Quest XI S. Even though I already played it last year, I find the game engrossing to replay. The faster battle speed option helps reduce the repetition. Meanwhile, they have added a few character-focused episodes to this version. Also, Tockington is really cute.

I picked it up as Dragon Quest is my favorite actively updated game series, but haven't been compelled to replay it after finishing the PS4 version last year. With that said I did play through the switch port of Dragon Quest 3 a while back and enjoyed it quite a bit as I hadn't played all the way through it since Dragon Warrior 3 on NES 27 or so years ago.

Sayonara Wild Hearts... Just picked this up a couple days ago.

Sayonara Wild Hearts is such a beautiful game. It's not quite an arcade game, not quite a rhythm game, but you play through a pop/synthwave soundtrack through cyberpunk-style tracks, everything fitted perfectly to the music, weaving in zodiac and tarot and anime references, around a theme of heartbreak and reconciliation. It's fast-paced but forgiving (unless you want to gold-rank everything then it's really tough), and short but very much worth it.

If the trailer looks like this is your jam then I really recommend getting it (available on Steam, Switch, and a few other platforms). I think it took about 2 minutes of watching the game for me to decide to buy it -- I mean the album alone is worth that much, and playing through it is even better. KF

Hey fellow Lunar fans! Sorry I haven't posted in about 8 months... I'm still doing the same old thing... dieting and exercise. Just recently got back from the doctors and they said my depression is all gone. I've been reluctant to play RPGs because I was trying to be more active in an effort to be rid of it and thank God she said it's gone my last appointment. But anyways. That's just whatever.

Do you guys ever take breaks from playing RPGs? I'm a total "just RPGs" type of a gamer and ever since I was younger like 8 or so I would only buy RPGs because I'd think to the future "I'd want something I can play and re-play until I get older"... So it's mainly RPGs in my collection. I like to re-play RPGs I've enjoyed. I do it all the time. Some games I've re-played up to 4 times. I don't like to spend too much on games so I'd buy them and sometimes re-play the ones I've enjoyed the most. I'm like kind of horrible at actually beating the games like I'd be 50 hours into an RPG and think "I'm so tired..." or "I'm so bored of this" and I'll just stop. Sometimes I stop at the final dungeon just because "I don't want the adventure to end"... I dunno I was like OCD and weird when I was a kid growing up.

Just recently while I was going through my depression I kept on thinking "Ugh... I'm getting older now" or "I'm getting too old to play video games"... But, thank God all those thoughts just went away and I'm just happy again now. :)

Just today I was outside just sitting around and I finally got that "itch" to play an RPG again. Do you guys ever get those when you go on breaks? Anyway. Today I popped in LUNAR 2: Eternal Blue Complete and I just finished up to where to reach the Althena's Statue in the Dragon Ruins or whatever they're called. Anyway. I feel a ton better when I play RPGs. It was weird that I went through that little mental phase but I feel like everything's back to normal now. I've gotten so bored of just watching DVD's and seeing like, humans on my TV over and over LOL I wanted to see sprites and RPG characters' faces again. Sorry for the long post. I'll try to post more often on how things are going. Hope you all had a great holidays!!

- John

I don't take breaks from RPGs. I know what I like and that's what I stick to, lol (^^') I've tried some other types, but RPG's are the most interesting to me. I do like certain fighting games too. DMC as well

I've been playing Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age. My level is in the upper 40s and I'm on my way to Archades. With the 4x speed settings in this version, I've had time to do many of the side hunts and explore to my heart's content. (I'd played the original, but at the time I was dating someone who would do all the exploring and hunting during the week so we would play the story bits together on the weekend.)

Lol, I'm glad you enjoyed what I posted. ^_^

Anyway, I just finished LUNAR 2: Eternal Blue Complete. It took me about 49 some hours to beat everything through to the Epilogue and all that. It was like, interesting because I hadn't played the game in years. I think this's my third playthrough. Hmm, I think I enjoyed Silver Star Story Complete more... Eternal Blue Complete seemed much harder, and like, longer. But I think they're about the same length. I dunno. I thought Eternal Blue Complete had much tougher enemies or at least more annoying enemies towards the end. I don't know how many times I've used Poe Sword and Blue Dragon Palm just like, over and over again. I went through so many Star Lights trying to finish the Epilogue dungeons, and if I didn't fight the Chiros who knows how I would've gotten the silver to do so. The ending theme I think is my favorite though even over the songs in the first game so that's a plus.

I was outside just sitting and I was feeling like, super sad I had one more dungeon to beat and then the game would be over. I don't know what to play next! I'm playing on my PlayStation 2 and I found an old Arc the Lad III save where I'm like sixty hours in so I might try to finish that but since I'm on a Working Designs kick, I kinda wanna play Albert Oddyssey. I played it a little bit when I got it like 6 years ago but I never finished. I've been dying to play some Final Fantasy IX though since I've never finished it. What to do, what to do? I'm like dreading wanting to play Alundra since I suck at games like that. I like turn-based RPGs, lol, but since it's Working Designs it's on my mind. And, I'm like dreading wanting to play Growlanser since I dunno I just am, lol.

Lol, well, I booted up like a six-year old save of Arc the Lad III I had found on my memory card and I had about 8 more jobs to complete and I did that in the last 2 days and I just finished fighting the Sky Castle a few hours ago so I can finally say after 20 years that I've actually finished Arc the Lad Collection!! Oh my God, I thought I'd never be able to do so. I dunno, I felt intimidated by the compilation when I first got it and I thought I'd never be able to beat it. And, this's my first time I've booted up an old save of mine, having forgotten everything that went on and actually went on to beat the rest of the game! Cool... Well, I thought Arc the Lad III was a little like weird but it's Working Designs so it's cool. It's just cool they brought over cool Japanese RPG's for us to play so I'm glad for that...

I dunno what to play next though. I'm kinda thinking about setting up my Sega Saturn to see if the lithium battery still works on it so I can play Albert Odyssey. I read some random reviews of it and boy are game reviewers kinda harsh... saying the game was like, lifeless and uneventful or whatever but it's from one of my favorite companies so that doesn't deter me from playing. I really want to play Final Fantasy IX, though...
