Whoo!! I 100% completed Suikoden III (PS2) last night! Got all 108 Stars of Destiny. The game makes much more sense when you collect everyone and it's more rewarding.

Next, I'll probably tackle Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King or Growlanser Generations (I'm such a bad Working Designs fan).

Never thought I'd actually reach the end of the current storyline in Another Eden. I'm already aware the end of the Goddess of Time storyline is near, but actually reaching the current endpoint before the next storyline update... well, was feeling I might've cut it close. For a moment I got worried there was a timer on the boss battle of Chapter 74... until it became weak to Slash after its HP stopper. Since I mostly use a Slash team...  :twisted: Also...

Paradoxical Dreamers... really subtle there Kato.  :lol:

Anyway, now that I don't feel as rushed, I can finally focus back on doing all the sub-quest content I've yet to finish. Mostly the reward lists for the various AD runs, but also... well, just about almost everything, heh. At least until Global gets the next storyline update.

I think I mentioned playing Control back when it came out on Game Pass, but recently got the Ultimate Edition for the Alan Wake content DLC. I really enjoy the boss fights or more precisely I like that the difficulty seems mostly self-imposed in that any time I've felt any frustration all I've had to do is shift around some equipment bonuses...

Kind of looking forward to the Alan Wake Remaster. RIP Verizon in-game ads!

Pretty much gave up on Another Eden (I quit logging in a while back). Tired of having no way to advance, of not having the proper resources no matter how much grinding I do, of never rolling people I need, of never coming up with a good enough strategy for basically anything.

Played the new chapter of Deltarune (full of laughs though I'm just not quite used to that gameplay anymore). Since the Hearth & Home update finally dropped in Valheim, I've been back on that too.

I actually played through Alan Wake and American Nightmare earlier this year for the very first time. I needed a break before playing Quantum Break and Control, though I plan to play through the entire Remedy backlog in prep of their shared universe efforts... Which I love the idea of.

Similar experience here. I haven't played since the Time Mine episode, although I still log in daily to collect those sweet, sweet gems. My intent is to come back to it eventually, although who knows. I hear that the developer, WFS, is about to release a Mana gacha, which means that Another Eden might be nearing end-of-life.

It's a shame to read that. Meanwhile I'm still having a blast. Sure, the RNG of the gacha pulls could be better, but many of the hurdles I've faced were still beat with what the game hands you for free. Well, almost all the stuff I've used.

Considering they have stated there will be a Part 3 to the main storyline, I doubt it. It's not like the entire AE development team will shift to the Mana one.

Hey, guys it's been awhile since I posted! Since I posted last I've managed to beat Growlanser II: The Sense of Justice (PS2) and Tales of Destiny II (PS1). Both were really good games.

Right now I'm playing Grandia II for the PS2 and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Cheers!!

Been playing some action games myself lately. Went through Senran Kagura Burst Re:Newal, got the platinum. That game has way too good a plot for a strip combat series.

Then played Attack on Titan (PS4) and beat the game.

Just started on Neptunia x Senran Kagura NINJA WARS. It's Neptunia levels of silly.

Started playing SRW 30, which got released today.

Oh man... OH MAN. As a big fan of SRW, it's just so awesome that a mainline game was actually officially sold worldline. Played the first scenarios of the Earth route before calling it a day. It was great. I absolutely loved that they brought back to using the anime clips when introducing certain mechas (the series used to do it, before switching to CGI movies, then just dropping it altogether). All the callbacks to previous games, the roster, the animations, the character interactions, I was having the time of my life!

Done w/ Grandia II for PS2. Loved everything about it.

Stupefied as to what to play next. Maybe Xenosaga 2 or Shadow Hearts 3?

I played Grandia II not long after it came out, and it was one of the first jRPGs I was able to finish from end-to-end. One of the things I remember most is that all the spells of that one character being body-part specific, and even then I was mildly amused by it.

Overall, I remember it being a great game. I definitely need to pick up the remaster at some point soon and revisit the game.

^ Millenia's spells were great. I liked how it'd cut to an anime cutscene right in the middle of battle, I thought that was pretty tight. Yes! I played it right when it first came out too for the Dreamcast and beat it, but this one is the PS2 version. The one for DC was a burned copy my friend gave me and I always felt a little guilty owning that. 😛

I really want to get Grandia III now. I know I've played it before cause I remember the mother & son but I dunno what happened to it.

I popped in Vagrant Story. It's one of the handful of RPGs I need to beat to finish off my PS1 collection for my backlog journey, and it's going pretty great so far.
