  1. The only thing I have that is kind of crazy is Xenosaga 3 (US edition) on PS2.
  2. Star Ocean 6 is making me want to give 5 a chance again, but is it worth it? Star Ocean 6, to me, is almost as good as Til the End of Time.

      I bought Star Ocean 5 when it was released. It was my first game of this series and I didn't like it.

      Main issues for me with SO5 was the budget shows itself very blatantly, but other than that I liked the game and like the big party.

  3. Got a little more into the spending spirit with deals coming up... Especially when it came to VNs. Overall not a terrible year with spending, but my backlog definitely grew. Of course some of these were just games I wanted to add to my physical collection. We'll see how this next year goes. December Switch Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania (physical) - $14.99 PS4 The House in Fata Morgana - $19.99 Samurai Shodown - $11.99 Total Spent for the Year: $ 940.50 Total Played: $ 569.08
  4. Looks like more games have been added, 90% of my wishlist is on sale now.
  5. Picked up Chaos;Head Noah/Chaos;Child steelbook edition for Switch 😁. I know Chaos;Child is on sale on ps store, but i heard i should go through Chaos;Head first which isnt available for ps4/ps5. Ever since playing Steins;Gate, I've been hooked on these visual novels.

      Just a heads up, I love Steins;Gate, I HATED Chaos;Child.  Absolutely hated it

      Interesting, I heard good things, did you play chaos head?

      I did not but I did read a summary (at the time I couldn't really get Chaos;Head).  My dislike of Chaos;Child comes down to the fact that 1) I don't think the writing is as good as the rest of the ';' series and 2) It is excessively, needlessly raunchy.

  6. I have a different outlook for this game, but I played the crap out FF tactics, still my favorite final fantasy, and also has better mechanics I think than this. You had to level up specific Jobs(classes) for a character to access others. For instance, to become a ninja they would first have to get to lvl 4 thief, lvl 3 archer and lvl 2 geomancer and they can only have 1 job at a time. That being said, after you make a character a certain class in Tactics Ogre, unless they use the same weapon type, there was no reason to change them. Leveling up the weapons is the longest part. Healing getting nothing from weapon levels is kinda lame too. Also, the named recruits you usually save are the better choice. Had this experience all through the gardens recently. Worst is that I went through one level and a character got knocked off and something happened where my other character countered and finished the fight, I never had a chance to use Chariot and had to restart 😑. Happy Holidays!
  7. Came to see if this fit on 1 post (is there even a limit?) color me surprised. There is so much going on in this sale and as I thought my purchasing was done for the year, I'm already eyeballing $50 worth of stuff, including The House in Fata Morgana, which has never been on sale and Samurai Shodown which I've had on my physical game watchlist but never got near this price, so I'll bite.
  8. I feel like Sony would make more money from game sales if they at least had screenshots for these games in their store. I end up going to steam store to look at what some of these are and notice that their prices are lower. I look up reviews after something looks interesting enough to check, but as I go through these for sell games I don't feel like spending the extra time to look up what they actually are.

      Maybe. Their current model is to get people on the console, which is why the console shop is so much better, and actually has videos and screenshots. Getting people on the console means they're more likely to actually play something, which means they'll get through more games and ultimately buy more games.

      Ah, I never use the console store, too much of a pain.

  9. And here I was thinking to myself that I could make it to the end of the year without spending anymore money on games... This is part of what looks like a really good end of the year sale.
  10. Out of the Lego games I played so far, I found Lego City Undercover to my favorite. The open world exploration was pretty easy and it just made me laugh the most. For some reason I got so lost in Lego Hogwarts all the time.
  11. Thanks for more anxiety inducing videos, even knowing that those are the successful attempts. definitely brought back memories of those bosses for me since its been like 6 months since I played it.
  12. I'm slowly going through it, but it'll take 3 playthroughs or lots of saves. I kinda went in blind and on one of the last bosses now. There isn't a guide for this version but there are guides for the story paths to follow.
  13. The officiating in NFL has gotten pretty bad, but the refs in college are worse, at least in the PAC-12. It's like they try to keep the games closer with terrible calls. In one game, they would flag almost any time the wide receiver and defender were slapping each other for PI, where they usually allow fairly to a point in the NFL. It got so bad, I remember the commentator saying "are we playing futbol or football here"?
  14. The movie list is pretty real around Christmas: Elf Santa Claus 1 and 2 Home Alone 1 and 2 Die Hard The Holiday Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas Charlie Brown Christmas Jingle all the Way There are other random ones, but I can't think of them right now and some are just too silly to list here... So far we have been able to save Elf for Christmas day, which is hard because it's probably our favorite in the list. As for gaming, I like to try and cleanup as much as I can before starting the new year fresh. Last couple of years I would dive into a Yakuza/Judgement game after Christmas. Doesn't look like I'll be doing that this year as I decided to start up a behemoth of a game, Cyberpunk 2077, while still going through Tactics Ogre.
  15. It's no surprise to me, but here's my most played this year: 1. Mario Party Superstars 2. Mario Golf Super Rush 3. The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles Mostly play multiplayer games on the Switch with my wife and slowly dragging my feet through Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, just isn't as good as Phoenix Wright. Hoping to get Harvestella for Christmas. She also hogged it for Animal Crossing, which is my only 3+ years game played.
