I'm playing FINAL FANTASY VII (1997)
Finally fired up Grandia on the Sega Saturn. I played the English PlayStation port a lifetime ago but I never did get around to clearing it.
Man, the Sega Saturn was such a cool piece of hardware.
Scored a copy of "Sutte Hakkun Winter '98 Event Version" off of Mercari
Streetfighter - 3rd Strike (arcade ver)
X-men vs Streetfighter (arcade ver)
Update: Still going, just hit disc 2. It is really strange to me that I can remember so many tiny details from this game but I feel like I'm seeing the story for the first time.
Update: Still going, almost finished the second disc I think. Never been this far in the game. What a lovely game.
Played through "Wario Land 2" on GBC. Vastly overrated game - no wonder it was so hard to get my hands on a copy. Nobody bought it for a reason.
Yakuza 7 has taken over my life
I didn't realise/often forget that there was a new PlayStation coming out/already out, which I assumed was the PlayStation 4, only to find out that it is the PlayStation 5.
What's more, is I used to own a PlayStation 4.
In other news, I recently bought 'Nanatsu Kaze no Shima Monogatari' for Sega Saturn, it's on the list for once I finish Grandia.
I've been playing Dragon Quest VI on and off for almost a year and a half but it's sooooo long. SSX Tricky and Smash Bros Ultimate are nice for mindless fun.
I only started Dragon Quest VI because of how much I liked its Battle Theme lol
You know I've only ever played one of the games in that series and I can never remember which number it was, only that it was the one with the rotund merchant.
I've been considering playing XI, but I don't know if my time would be better spent playing something else.
I'm also curious as to what the future of the series will be like, given the announcement that XII will be darker and more action focussed.
In other news, the 2020-decade keeps getting stranger as I just bought an Xbox.
I played Dragon Quest IX on DS and even after 239832 years of refinement that series is still incredibly, tediously grindy. I realize that's intentional and part of the series' gimmick at this point, but I just got plain old tired of it.
Currently playing "Super C". Now there's a great game as long as you make sure to never, ever lose the spread gun XD
To be honest I'm not a huge fan. I loved both Dragon Quest Monsters on GBC and they're amongst my favorite games but the series in itself is a bit tiresome after hordes and hordes of random encounters... it gets to the point of feeling like a part time job haha. I never finished it for that reason. There's not enough variation for my taste. I miss games like Actraiser that had elements of various gametypes all in the same experience.
Super C is tons of fun. Especially in coop.
Sounds like Death Stranding.
I played Carrion recently, initially I had put off playing it due to the trailer giving me the impression that it would be really difficult to control, which it wasn't at all, if anything the movement was very satisfying. Cool game, but a wee bit short.
Just bought this; https://castlecrypt.bigcartel.com/product/morrowind-longsleeve
Pretty weird to think that Morrowind and Dix Infernal came out in the same year.
