Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I hit a major difficulty spike with the robot fighting. I switched up my robot frames so that I controlled a balanced model rather than the small, speedy model, tweaked some other modules, and came back to win handily. The need to revisit prior, entrenched ways of how to play the game seems to jibe ...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I'm playing Lost Judgment and love it. I'm on Chapter 9 now and blowing through the school stories. Currently, I'm trying to make Yagami into the best scooter-motorcyclist ever.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Chrono Cross remaster. I'm a little over halfway through the game, in my estimation. I've just awakened the Black Dragon. I still really like it. The difficulty curve has always been about what I like - hard enough that I can and will game over if I neglect something, battles structured to not be to...

Re: Poker Face

I'll second that the cards are a nice touch. Also, I hadn't noticed the hairband before, and I think it's rockin' in this picture.

Re: Do you guys ever feel weird shopping for video games?

Yes. Back in the 1990s and the 2000s, I learned to distinguish between places that were happy to let me browse and places where staff checked on me multiple times. I avoided the latter, but had enough options that I was okay. I only had one actively bad interaction, where as a 13 year old I interjec...

Re: Excited About Chrono Cross Remaster

^ The comparison to Eternal Blue is really interesting. Certainly, I agree that Eternal Blue was a successful sequel even though it didn't immediately follow the first game. I'm not sure that Chrono Cross failed in what it was doing though. I think many players were put off by the fact that Chrono C...

Re: Excited About Chrono Cross Remaster

I'm excited. I haven't played Chrono Cross in at least a decade, but it was one of my favorite PS1 games. At the time I first played Chrono Cross, I had played Chrono Trigger at a friend's house but hadn't played through it. So I was close enough to the series to appreciate how it echoed Chrono Trig...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I've been playing Yakuza Like a Dragon. I'm nearing the end; I'm surprised how much I've been sucked into the side content - minigames, side quests, the optional dungeon. I think I prefer the generally more grounded nature[*] of Yakuza Kiwami, but I admit enjoying the flights of fancy in LAD. I like...

Re: Crypto currency

That's great, WD. I'm glad you're able to pursue moving to Japan. The fact that Mastercard, VISA, PAYPAL, even Robinhood support it is very odd to me. If it wasn't going anywhere why would all these companies adapt it? It deff seems like a Pyramid Scheme but just so hard to wrap my head around it. P...

Re: This Christmas: The Wham! Challenge

I find it one of the more bizarre features of my life that I used to play the Wham! Challenge with people on a small online board dedicated to a JRPG, and now I have friends and even my mother-in-law playing, as social media has spread the challenge each year. It's not often I do something before it...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I've been playing Shin Megami Tensei V. I'm traveling through the second major section of the Underworld, about level 32, and I'm about ready to stop. The exploration is great. The game strews tokens and other findables across its landscape. The use of vertical space in a non-platforming game remind...

As a non-financial expert who knows a thing or two about rhetoric, the language around NFTs and cryptocurrency also sets off warning bells for me: The fact that ads exist to encourage you to buy cryptocurrency suggests they need to convince people to buy it to generate value, rather than it existing...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I've been playing **Dungeon Encounters**, the Square Enix dungeon RPG, on the Switch. The game is basic and has virtually no story, but it has my pulse gameplay-wise. The game starts from a simple premise: ATB gameplay with two basic types of attack/defense (physical and magic) and Pac-Man-style dun...

I'm deep into Horizon: Zero Dawn. It is tickling that exploration whimsy, as well as rewarding strategic uses of existing resources. I've also been gripped by the narrative more than I expected. I'm over halfway through, and I'm aiming to wrap it up in time to switch to Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righ...

Re: First playthrough

^ I think if I rushed it, I could beat Lunar 1 in 12 hours or so. Otherwise, my timing and level are usually pretty close to Gryzz's - talking to NPCs, backtracking for red chests, and the obligatory bath visits put me at 20-25 hours.
