    1. Final Fantasy Legend II (GB) 1/28
    2. Donkey Kong Country 3 (GBA) 2/7
    3. Harvest Moon 64 (N64) 6/14
    4. Secret of Mana (Vita) 7/18
    5. Home (Vita) 7/19
    6. Tail Concerto (PlayStation) 7/29



    It's always nice to revisit an old favorite. Like usual, I beat the game in just over 5 hours. I wasted some time trying to relearn the final area and boss, though. Now I just need to do a Solatorobo replay one of these days. Maybe I'll do that when the next Little Tail Bronx game is close to coming out, which is supposedly happening in 2019.

    7. Disney's The Jungle Book (SNES) 8/6

    The 8th level was so irritating that I entertained the idea of quitting this game, but I was getting so close to beating King Louie that I just couldn't give up. I persevered through that and then blew through the rest of the game with relative ease. Good riddance, I suppose. I've definitely played worse platformers, but there's not much going for this game either. It's basically everything that's bad about Virgin's Disney games. No saves, no passwords, sloppy controls, cheap hits, etc. The only saving grace is that some of their games are pretty easy, so you can look past the flaws when you're not staying on any individual stage for long. Here, not so much. It's a pretty damn tough at parts, and I hear it's much more difficult than the other Jungle Book games Virgin released, not that I would know. I feel like all Virgin cared about is that their games looked and moved pretty authentic to the sources, with good gameplay being an afterthought. Some of Capcom's Disney games may have not been quite as flashy, but I'll take theirs over Virgin's any day.

    8. Breath of Fire (GBA) 8/13

    I started this Breath of Fire file near the end of 2013, and here I am finishing it off in 2018. It's almost kind of comical how little I had left when I dropped it. Granted, if I hadn't looked up a few things in an FAQ, goodness knows how long I would've spent trying to figure everything out on my own. I ended up getting the bad ending, even though I do have the ultimate dragon form necessary for the good ending (which, again, I never would've found without an FAQ since it's in an old dungeon I have no recollection of). The game doesn't even tell you to use that form until it's already too late (it was greyed out in the menu at that point), so it seems like they want you to get the bad ending first. It's kind of annoying having to go through the final dungeon all over again, but I'll give it a go tomorrow.

    8. Breath of Fire (GBA) 8/13
    9. Kirby & the Amazing Mirror (GBA) 8/22

    There's no in-game clock for this game, but it felt a good bit longer than I was expecting, at least to get 100%. Getting that last 10% or so probably took longer than it took to get twice as much before that. Anyway, boy, that was a lot of boss fights at the end, and that was a boneheaded idea to layer the credits over the final fight. I still don't know what was up with that. I don't know if that fight was just for fun or if you actually have to do well to earn the ending past the credits. In case of the latter, I gave it my all, so the credits were just a distraction, which is a shame because, maybe it's just me, but I actually like reading credits. Fun game overall, though. I can see why they haven't returned to this Metroid-style Kirby concept, since its execution has some flaws, but I like when they try new things with the Kirby IP.

    10. Nightshade (PC) 9/8

    I haven't had much time for gaming these last couple weeks, but I've been trying to squeeze in Nightshade whenever I could, since the story was only getting more and more intense as it went along. I don't know if I'm crazy about the plot twist at the end, but I do like how it throws you for a loop if you expect it to be like how real history turned out (since there are some characters who are based on actual Japanese historical figures). But that aside, Choujirou's got an excellent route, even despite my initial impressions of him seeming kind of bland as a character. And truth be told, I wouldn't say the route was excellent because of his relationship with the protagonist. There really wasn't much romance in general. Most of the route focused on the overarching plot, and it was great. I got the Happy Ending, so I'll go through his route again, since I'm still missing a CG, which I assume is for a bad ending. I'm excited to then start up a different route and see if it mirrors Choujirou's route or if the others go in entirely different directions.

    11. The Misadventures of Tron Bonne (PlayStation via Vita PSOne Classics) 10/30

    Well, Tron Bonne wasn't quite what I was expecting in a number of ways. For a game that's supposedly really short, I ended up sinking 25 hours into it. But I should've known, considering I put way more time into both Mega Man Legends games than what people claim is the average completion time for those. The optional stuff really adds up in these games. I was also expecting to enjoy it more. I'd say it was still a good experience overall, but definitely not on the level of the Mega Man Legends games. There's just way too many frustrating things about it. Honestly, you could nix most of the gameplay and make it mostly a story-focused game, and I'd probably enjoy it more. The setting and characters are what really make this game. It's certainly not an exceptional story or anything, but I find myself frequently smiling and chuckling at how cute and funny the characters are. I usually don't even like Japanese games dubbed, but in this franchise, the cheesy Saturday morning cartoon-style acting really works for it. Even though I didn't end this spinoff series on the highest note, I'm still a little sad that I've now finished all three games and have nothing new to look forward to. It still stings that Mega Man Legends 3 was canned.

    You'll never be rid of me!

    1. Final Fantasy XII (PS2)
    2. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS1)
    3. Rogue Galaxy (PS2)
    4. Castlevania: Curse of Darkness (PS2)
    5. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen (PS3)
    6. Tales of the Abyss (PS2)

    Took long enough, didn't it? Anyway, I feel much better about this one than I did the first go around. I guess I was just feeling ornery about the whole thing last time. The combat seemed to be much more fun, and I didn't get spanked like a redheaded stepchild (oh the irony) every other random encounter, and the sephiroth dungeons are still something a bit different visually. On the other hand, the 'nature' dungeons and overworld map were pretty pedestrian, plus the sorcerer's ring and other puzzle elements just didn't really gel outside of two late-game optional seqences. Overall still a blast to play, and a breath of fresh air from the howling pack of Final Fantasy clones of the era.

    A twofer!

    1. Final Fantasy XII (PS2)
    2. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PS1)
    3. Rogue Galaxy (PS2)
    4. Castlevania: Curse of Darkness (PS2)
    5. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen (PS3)
    6. Tales of the Abyss (PS2)
    7. Chrono Trigger (SNES)
    8. Final Fantasy VII (PS1)

    Technically a threefer; I did another full run of SoTN while I was at it. Trigger was actually harder than I remember. I'm still not sure if I was just rusty; I can't claim it was super-challenging at any point but I got TPK'd at some spots and kept getting knocked on the defensive. Maybe my old habit of farting around meant I had a few more levels and items back then. FF7...well its still one of my favorites, but what can I say about it that isn't regurgitating a bazillion fanboy spazlord "reviews?" The final dungeon is still fun to look at but annoying to slog through, but it was almost hilariously anticlimactic that I got up to the final boss run after I nabbed the shiny doom orb reward of racing chickens and using it once out of spite halfway through. When I wasn't using some nominally lesser death move of flashy damage, a Limit Break was triggered anyway. Little evil bishie bits everywhere.

    Okay, so I'm going to start over with some games, since I'm getting back into some retro stuff. I've only started since November, but I got through these:

    Goonies II (NES)
    Rygar (NES)

    I'm working on Sonic 1 right now, and found out that Rygar was re-made for PS2 (and Wii), so I'm gonna try the PS2 version of that.

    Played a ton of "unbeatable" games like Pinball FX 3 and Pinball Arcade.

    Finally finished Phantasy Star thanks to the Sega Ages release on the Switch. I had gotten 90% through back in the SMS days before my friend borrowed it and "lost" it. Boo.

    Finished Little Big Adventure (Steam) sometime after Xmas. I played the enhanced version and the mouse controls are quite annoying, playable but not great. Should have played through the original version. It is a decent game, I like the unique world filled with interesting characters and nice items. I also like the isometric type view, if its considered isometric. This is a game ive played before, but i dont think i finished. I remember getting the secret passage in the muesum before, but couldn't get it this time round.
