Don't you mean SSH for PSP? XD

I actually mean the EB Remake. It was released for the Playstation Online store so I downloaded it to my PSP (well I suppose technically it's a PSO game not a PSP game). It's Japan only so if I recall right, I needed to set up a Japanese account for it. It's been a while though.

SSH by contrast was... rather forgettable.


Oh you mean the Japanese PSone Classics re-release? I know about that one. For me at least PSone classics would be a "port" as the assets were mostly or completely reused from a previous version. When I see "remake" I think mostly new assets.

He meant remake as opposed to the SegaCD game. A lot of people referred to the Saturn game as EBR before it was released in the US as EBC.

Currently playing 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. Story is pretty compelling thus far.

Still playing Trials of Mana & Warriors Orochi 4 to get those trophies. Started playing Atelier Ryza. It's okay. I was let down by all the hype.

Very excited for Trails of Cold Steel 4 in less than 30 days!!!!

Hey, guys! I just beat Claude's game in Star Ocean: The Second Story (PSX) earlier this morning! I was trying to complete the Cave of Trials but I just hurried the game along and decided to just beat it! I have to go back to it one day for that, and to complete Rena's. I have never played her game before.

I'm now playing Breath of Fire for the SNES. It's been so long since I last played it I don't even remember if I've beat it. I was thinking about just going through the entire series since I have all 5 games lol. I'm really excited to play Breath of Fire II since my Uncle fixed the battery on the cartridge for me! I know, for sure, I've never beaten it before I think I made it to where you control just Sten as a kid and then I just stopped.

Edit: I decided to play The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64) like I had originally planned. I dunno why I always change my mind the night before. lol

For some reason I decided to play the Zelda Oracles games. Probably because my husband just finished Link's Awakening (in Japanese, to practice reading) and I felt like solving some puzzles. I really hope these get a similar treatment to LA someday. The translation could definitely use a polish and Ages in particular would benefit from having more buttons available.

I played Disco Elysium, which focuses on an amnesiac cop who has to solve a case in a downtrodden corner of the world. The game is a bit rough, treading a thin line between making politics a part of the setting and being too didactic, but it succeeded in telling a story I was entertained by and in writing a lot of humor and heart into a dark narrative of personal recovery. My first playthrough, I specialized in Rhetoric and did pretty well with the dialogue. In this one, I'm focusing on Shivers (a kind of paranormal, intuitive sense of the world).

I'm dabbling with Star Wars Squadrons. I think they made a very fun arcade-like flight game. My only criticism is that I wish it was a little less forgiving. Being able to heal my ship mid-mission while blowing up countless starfighters feels a little unbalanced. In TIE Fighter, even knicking another ship would have meant hull damage or death, but the only death-by-collision I had was accidentally flying into a Star Destroyer's engines.

Hey, y'all. I just got done beating The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64) like, yesterday, lol. So. I busted out my Super Nintendo and busted out Breath of Fire. I feel really nostalgic with this system, and particularily this game. This afternoon I couldn't stop sneezing like at least ten times, maybe it was just all the dust I blew out. I just felt really homesick.

I've been having trouble with my save file getting deleted though I know it's not the battery yet so, I tried to switch up my routine when I turn a game off. I just turn the Power button off without hitting Reset, and I don't eject the cartridge anymore I just leave it in. So far, I haven't had any problems but we'll see.

I just beat the Winlan area.

Finished Horizon: Zero Dawn, including the Frozen Wilds DLC.
Total time... somewhere north of 200 hours.
Now I'm going through New Game+ mode XD

It's definitely one of my favorite games now, and I'm really glad I was able to completely avoid spoilers until I finally played. I think I'll go through NG+ before moving onto the FF7 Remake.

Zelda Ocarina of Time, in Japanese, on GameCube. I've been wanting to replay that game lately (and particularly needed a distraction recently), and I know it well enough to not need to be able to read it, though I can make out a few phrases here and there. My husband, who has been keeping up with study much better than I, can make out a bit more, with some dictionary consultation. Mostly we've confirmed that yes, the English text is very close to the Japanese text, which isn't a surprise.

Before that we played Cat Quest and Cat Quest 2, by which I mean he played and I watched and knitted. I really wish my two main hobbies didn't both involve both hands.

Lunartic has me playing my first Zelda game ever. Majora's Mask. I'm almost done with it. It plays like Shenmue.

Just FYI, being almost done with the three days doesn't mean you're almost done with the game XD

Currently doing my first playthrough of Blair Witch and getting thoroughly spooked, as I tend to do with survival horror games. :lol:

I've been playing Little Hope, which is in the same vein as Man of Medan and Until Dawn - heavily based on conversation, QTE, and cluefinding, with a lot of importance placed on both what players know and what characters know during the story. LH (roughly Salem-themed, but mostly taking place in the present day) has been fun during my playthrough and a half so far; at five hours per playthrough, I like seeing the different ways that the story can unfold.

I've also been replaying Xenoblade Chronicles, which mainly served as comfort food when I wasn't engaged in current events or how hard work has been the last few weeks. It's easy enough to jump in, explore an area, and jump back out again.

Oh, and I've played through most of Super Picross on the Switch. It's the same deal - I jump in for a few puzzles to calm myself after a long day. I don't understand the Japanese, but sussed out the rules (I'd never done picross before). Seeing each pictogram come to life with animation is a small joy.

I look forward to getting back to the heavier story-based RPGs I had going (Persona 4 Golden and FFVII: R) around the holidays.

Edit: I went ahead and just started Breath of Fire II for Super NES.
