    Well... as a Godzilla fan... if I see it really cheap I might try it out. X3 Sometimes those zone out games are ust nice.

    Games Beaten 2019

    March 2019 - Trails From Zero
    August 2019 - Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    My 2019 list is pathetic, but it will pick up soon... hopefully.

    Yes I finally did it, after 220 hours, I finally finished this behemoth. It was grand, the end of the game blows your mind, especially if you are aware of the first Xenoblade. This is just an excellent excellent game that you can dump an eternity into, or not, you can play it how you want to, you can put in all the time or just enough for the main story but you get out what you put in. Its almost a perfect game, and I didnt think there was any way this game was going to top the first but... it may have done just that. I will be starting Torna: The Golden Country asap.

    I would not call it pathetic, you played two BIG games.

    I am not sure how anyone can think this game tops the first, but to each their own. It was better than I thought it would be in the end though. Flawed, but it was pleasant enough.

    I'm the same. I LIKED XC2, but only liked, not loved. I LOVED the first game, and 'X' as well. For me, XC2's storyline felt very recycled, and I never became interested in any of the main crew of characters. Rex just wasn't an interesting protagonist for me. I also liked the world and soundtrack better in both of the previous games.

    Still a beautiful game, though, and even recycled, a Xenoblade story is still really good. And the antagonists were actually great, so I was pretty interested whenever they had screen time. But yeah, overall, XC2 just wasn't in league with either of the other two games as far as my personal preferences go.

    The lore for the series in Xenoblade 2 is game changing. The main characters are hit or miss, the game play made many welcome improvements but the draw back to that is a steep learning curve (Xenoblade 1 also had this, but not to this extent), and I have heard that at launch some people didnt know chain attacks were a thing until the end of the game... oof. My liking of the game may also be due to how closely I have followed this series basically from the beginning with Xenogears. Speaking of Xenogears Xenoblade 2 has MANY parallels and references to gears almost to the point where it is a bit recycled but I mainly enjoyed recalling what the new versions of the old terminology in gears. Also the connection Xenoblade 2 has to the first game, and Saga and beyond is incredible, I would say the events of Xenoblade 2 are the more important bits of the lore so far a lot was explained and there is a lot to piece together to make sense of a lot of it, and I love that aspect of it too and its a staple of the Xeno series.

    The lore is not that game changing IMO, hell Nocturne did something similar like 15 years ealier.

    And XC2 retreads Xenogears FAR too much IMO. At first it was nice, but... it has so many similarities it feels like they were not even trying to make something fresh. The connections the game may have to Gears or Saga are also not concrete yet, so anything beyond KOS-MOS being a cameo is conjecture. What Xenoblade does with 2's ending will depend on how the series goes forward, but personally I want a direct sequel to X before anything.

    2 is like Xeno junk food. Not fresh at all, but enjoyable enough.

    I found combat in XC2 the easiest to learn of all the Xenoblade games, lol, even though it was explained the most poorly. During longer boss battles I regularly smacked 6 or even 7 orbs down on the enemy and could even burst them all in a single chain attack, and that's a level of attack I could never have pulled off in the previous games. (I completed the game before any additional difficulty levels were added via DLC, so I played the whole game at the default difficulty, just for reference.) X is the hardest, then the first game, then XC2, for me.

    I know about some of the stuff XC2 pulled from Xenogears, and the connections to XC1, of course, but rather than raising my interest, it added to that recycled feeling, which instead made it feel stale, as DustyStarr says. It just didn't grab me like either of the previous two games. That's really what it comes down to. Combat, world, exploration, music, story, characters...for me, XC2 was the least engaging of the lot so far. It never felt like anything surprising happened in the story. It's still good, just not great. I enjoyed it the whole way through, but it never managed to get me excited the way the previous two games did.

    Naturally, opinions will differ, but that's mine. (I'm also not someone who is especially interested in a game universe's 'lore'. I find that kind of thing dry and only distantly interesting. I'm the same way with the Trails series. I'm much more interested in the characters and their personal stories.)

    08/16 - Katamari Damacy REROLL (Switch)
    09/01 - Mega Man 3 (Legacy Collection) (Switch)

    I don't have a whole lot to say about this one, I have been meaning to play Mega Man 3 for a pretty long while, and since I got the Legacy Collection super cheap I thought I might as well give it a go. The level design overall does not feel as tight as 2's but it was pretty fun outside of a few instances. Needle Man's stage (more the remix version) was awkward... I had to make liberal use of the rewind feature there. X3 The gameplay feels a little more trial and error than 2, but the rewind feature removes the frustration from it... I honestly wish they kept that feature in all of the collections. I can see why some people dislike this game more, but I like that it tried to be bigger than the previous games, even if the remix stages feel a little padding. Fun enough NES game. X3

    That also makes game 20, woo. X3 I am trying to fuss over my backlog less and just like have fun, but I am happy to see my list growing just because I want to be playing more. During my last couple of years of working and college I had trouble fitting gaming time in, so it's nice to be able to actually be able to beat games again. X3 My log's more of a way to see what I hveplayed in the year though less than a record of beaten games... I have thought about trying to make a list of everything I PLAY in the year but it seems like it would be more unweildy. Aw well I'm just rambling. X3 I'm hoping I can get to 30 games this year (including rebeats and such).

    09/01 - Mega Man 3 (Legacy Collection) (Switch)
    09/03 - Star Fox 64 3D (Easy Route) (3DS)

    I was watching someone play Star Fox 64 online and it gave me the urge to go back to the game myself, and that worked out well since I just recently got a copy of 3D from a friend. X3 I only did the easy route (minus going into the mid route for Solar and Macbeth), but I never died or lost a wing (which left me always having the hyper lasers... which trivialized a lot of the game's bosses, but it was still fun X3). This is one of the first 3D games I played along with Ocarina of Time, though I specifically remember thinking that Star Fox 64 was the most polished and well made game of ALL TIME. It's a little funny looking back at that now, not that I think the game has dated as bad as some N64 games, but I thought games had reached their peak with Star Fox 64. X3

    Still though the game is just as fun going back to it as it was back then. :3 It seems like no version of this game can ever get the controls exactly like the N64 original, since I remember the VC version being slippery and this one feels pretty different as well whether using the gyro or circle pad, but it's close enough. Within minutes I was totally absorbed and even forgot I was playing on the 3DS, I was just so in the moment. Not much to say I just love this game. X3 The music, the combat, the voice acting (even if it is not AS cheesey as the original sadly), the replayability... it's a perfect little game IMO. X3 Short but with plenty to offer when trying to master it. ...makes me sad Star Fox 0 did not work out, but what can you do...

    Anyways I will be going through this one again to get the good ending sometime, but for now this was a nice quick treat. :3 If anyone is curious about my stats:

    CO: 84
    ME: 97
    FI: 50
    SO: 50
    MA: 91
    BO: 133
    VE: 72
    Total Hits: 577
    No continues (or deaths for that matter)


    Huh that was my first 3DS game this year, that's weird, I have really been on th Switch kick this year. X3

    Finished everything about Gardening Mama 2 except getting the final vendor all the way up to the top of level 5. It doesn't have a story or an ending anyway, as far as I know, so I suppose there's no real point in doing this one last thing. I doubt anyone here is interested in it anyway, but if you are, don't trust the demo! The demo is fun, because the beginning of the game is full of new stuff and things to unlock and the amount of vendors is well-balanced...but all that gets bent out of shape in later game and it becomes a horrible chore. Total waste of money, for me.

    That makes 15 games completed in 2019 so far. I think I can get to 16 or maybe 17 by the end of September.

    09/03 - Star Fox 64 3D (Easy Route) (3DS)
    09/21 - Stardew Valley (Switch)

    So, today I "beat" Stardew Valley. It's hard to say a game like that is beaten, but outside of completing the museum, cooking all the recipes, and catching all the fish, I have achieved every goal I can think of. X3 Fully upgraded my house, diversified my farm and broke 1 Mil in profits, got married, and of course finished the Community Center questline which is what I considered the MAIN GOAL FOR ME. Also calling it beat for now so I can move on to other games.... but I know I will come back to it. X3 It seems like every time I touch this game I go HAM, having like 30-40 hour bursts in a short amount of time before putting it down. X3

    I know I'm late as heck to the party and everyone has already played it, but the game is so delightful. :3 Graphics and music re just so peaceful; some of the ambient tracks like the Dance of the Midnight Jellies theme are things I listen to outside the gme just to relax. It's a very unwinding sort of game, which is funny since it's a game about work. X3 But with adjusting to my new job and schedule it has been a great pick up and play sort of thing, something I can zone out too, possibly with some music or shows.

    The farming was not super deep but provided a lot of options in how to make money which I liked. I tried to have my farm have a bit of everything but mostly focused on berries and tree fruits in the greenhouse. I also made a ton of money with fishing, because the fishing mechanics in the game were just the right blend of simple but actually fun. X3 Unlike Animal Crossing where you just cast the line and press A at the right time (which I still like), there is a tiny minigame which makes catching the gish more involved, but it's so short it is not intrusive. A lot of my profits in the first year were propped up by fishing until I was able to use my fishing profits to purchase hundreds of berry seeds to create my vast fields of money.

    Before putting it down I was considering a vast swine farm since truffles make decent money, but that will be for when I come back. X3

    Mining was also really fun. Like Rune Factory the game has dungeons you can venture into, and I spent a lot of time going in there so I could get my tools upgraded in year one (Winter is great for this since you don't need the tools). The combat is a lot more shallow than Rune Factory (I assume, I only played the first game but I assume they got more in-depth), but like many things in the game, it's just involved enough to make it interest, but simple enough to make it easy to just zone out to. The game just takes mundane tasks and makes them either enjoyable or at least not boring. X3

    Though one area where I think things are too simple is interacting with the Town Residents. I know it is just an indie game, but the script for what characters say is remarkably small. The first Rune Factory had more going for it, and Animal Crossing characters are like phone books comparatively. I suppose if everyone had new dialogue options often it would put pressure on players to see everyone when they need to focus on farming/mining/fishing, but I think there could have been more. I found this most egregious in the marriage system because your spouse has LESS dialogue than before you married them it felt like. They just sort of... stand in your house, and I found that kind of lame personally. I think there should have been more ways to engage with them and more things to talk about. Emily's events were so lively, but when she came to live with me she just sorta... existed.

    That is really my only complaint with the game though. Besides that, it was an incredibly enjoyable experience and I just love it. Love all the characters (minus Demitrius who is a jerk and Clint who took me wedding Emily like a bitch), love the music, love the gameplay, just love the game. :3 I think it is tied with Enter the Gungeon as my favorite Nindie.

    Any of you homies ever played it? Who did you marry, what did you focus on to make money?

    A rebeat, but one that was a long time overdue. This is one of my top games of all time but I had only played it once (it just happened to be that memorable for me, I still reference and quote bits of it to this day, even if it's been like 7.5 years). A friend of mine was going through it and it spurred me to rebeat it, which did not take long at all. I really don't go back and play my loved games enough, which is a shame because I used to, and also because playing this game again felt like slipping on a comfy warm sweater. I felt stupid sentimental going through it again, my smile was huge and I teared up at points again. Thinking about how long it has been making me... kinda sad... but at the same time experiencing it again and it all feeling fresh still gave me some like INNER PEACE.

    Game is old news and I have talked about it before, but the characters are just so great, the environments are amazing between the environmental storytelling and them feeling alive by constantly repairing themselves. The puzzles were great and while I think the first game is a better puzzle game I really like some of the scenarios that the game constructed for you, they felt more exploration-focused, especially when you're outside test chambers. Adding to the lore of the Half-Life universe is also cool, and all the little secrets and details in the game are delish. And that ending is one of the most memorable video game endings of all time for me, right up there with the first game's.

    The soundtrack was also better than I remembered, and it was used pretty effectively. That was something I did not think about as much, but I was happy it stood out to me now.

    Besides that, just.... best game. So glad I played it again. If you all haven't go and play it for yourselves, it's cheap these days. Play the first game first though, it's even cheaper and really short.

    Finished Link's Awakening last night! For the most part, I liked the end scenes, and the main theme wasn't as tropey back then as it is now, so even though this is my first encounter with the game, I won't hold that against it. Super cute and the mechanics were smooth. Glad to be done, though, and I doubt I'll ever play it again, since there's not enough story there to really get into. But my sisters and my cousin all way to play it so it's lend-out time. Makes it more valuable :)

    That makes 19 games I've completed in 2019 so far.

    I don't even remember what I've beaten this year, other than Pokemon Omicron twice (which is two more times than anyone ever should beat it).

    I also beat Link's Awakening! Managed to fit one last game into September. Six games in one month, a high scoring month for me, though a lot of those were pretty short admittedly. X3 But considering I started a new job I am happy I have the time to game as much as I have.

    I already played Link's Awakening on the 3DS, and considering how similar the remake is to the original it was not exactly a different experience, but I think the new graphics were delightful and the redone music is just great. Hearing the loving recreations of these classic tunes put a huge smile on my face, especially the final boss themes and the final dungeon theme. The Ballad of the Wind Fish is of course the big standout tune and I even got a tear in my eye with how pretty and mpactful it was.

    I think the game is a bit too expensive at $60 (or even $50 which I paid), but I too will be lending it out, which makes up for it. It does not do anything groundbreaking but it is a faithful and pretty remake of a classic. :3

    HOWEVER, one big negative in my opinion is the removal of the camera shop and most of the accompanying scenes. They added character to the game, and it would have been nice to see the pictures redone in the new animation style (either ingame graphics or animated cutscene graphics).

    10/01 - Silent Hill (PS1)

    Not for my backlog at all, I just have been sort of wanting to replay the game again after all this time, and since it was October and I recently got my PS3 out anyways to indulge in Portal 2 (and some Tokyo Jungle) I thought what the hell. X3 I am going to be doing a write up on the game which I may or may not post here so I do not want to write much now, but I just love how this game both lays the groundwork for the Silent Hill series but is also fairly distinct from the other games in the series. I think the biggest thing it has going for it, before Silent Hill 3 at least, was its sense of mystery. The game gives you a lot of possible leads but never confirms or denies any theory. The game really like to flex it's Stephen King inspiration much more than the following games (Silent Hill 2 leans heavier into Lynch), which is nice... the game feels more Hollywood than the others, like a weird blend between Silent Hill and Resident Evil. This is helped by the fact that not a SINGLE line in this game is delivered competently, which I just ate up. X3

    Beat the game in one big sitting, with a break. Took me about 4.5 hours, but with a half hour break making my final time about 5. I would have a real final time but playing it on the PS3 is evidently kinda... not great, the game has glitches when playing on the PS3, such as crashing before you get to the results screen. That bummed me out. X3 If anyone wants to play this I highly reccomend playing on a PS1 or PS2.

    26 games so far this year, not bad.
