Loving how Skies of Arcadia-ish it feels (complete with cameos from alternate reality Vyse and Aika!). I think you can definitely tell that a lot of the same people worked on both games
    good game! really fun and anime

    i just started crisis core, which i've never played before, and it's really hard to play this after playing ff7re lol
    For sure! The battle system becomes kind of broken as the game goes on (scouts, in particular, become absurdly overpowered, and I found that the demolition order basically rendered the entire lancer class obsolete), but it’s so much fun to play that I hardly care. Definitely going to continue with the rest of the series once I’m done with this one!

    I have somewhat mixed feelings on Crisis Core too. The combat didn’t really click for me (I imagine it’d seem even worse after playing the VII Remake), and certain parts of the story felt pretty silly, even as someone who loves the story and lore in FFVII. But I grew to really like Zack over the course of the game, and if you get invested in him as a character, then the ending is very well done, and almost makes the whole experience worth it. I don’t think it’s really a must play, but I don’t regret running through it once.

    The later games balance the classes better but Scouts are still great. I actually think VC 2 & 3 are overall better than VC 1, but they are PSP games and VC 3 only came out in Japan. I played a fan translated version of VC 3 and it was really fun. I haven't tried VC 4 yet but it's on my shelf.

    Started playing .Hack//GU. I haven't played it since it was new. So like 10-ish years? I do not remember most of disc 1. Completely forgot about Gaspard. I'm just waiting for Alkaid to show up.

    I'm actually about eight hours into 3 just now. I tried moving straight on to 2 after I finished the first one, but while I appreciated the improvements it made gameplay-wise to VC1's formula, it felt like such a big departure tonally from the first game, and it wasn't really what I was looking for in a sequel. I might give it another go somewhere down the line when I feel ready to approach it more on its own terms.

    Really enjoying 3 so far, anyway! I'm not a huge fan of how many generic battles it throws at you, and I kind of preferred the structure of the first game, where each compulsory battle is very much its own unique thing. But I can appreciate that the unique, large scale battles of the first game wouldn't have been practical on the PSP, and the game is still loads of fun to play, even when you're just slogging through the same maps against generic troopers. I also loved the cast of characters almost from the off, and it makes tons of really great improvements to the gameplay of the first game (I especially love the class change system, and how much more practical retreating / redeploying your troops is now). I can definitely see how you might prefer it to the first game despite the obvious technological downgrade when moving from PS3 to PSP.

    And I had no idea that VC3 had been fan translated. That's really cool! I speak Japanese so I'm just playing it in the original language, but it always felt so weird that Sega hadn't localised the third game, especially as it was generally better received than the second. So it's great to hear that the whole series is available in English now.

    VC2 does get a little more serious but it is not the same warlike tone of VC1 and VC3.

    I've recently been playing some old NES games on the Switch Online. There's a lot of great stuff in there. I've been playing Zelda 2, Startropics, Crystalis, Kid Icarus. They have a nifty rewind feature which is basically a cheat but it helps with the unforgiving difficulty of some of the 8 bit games.

    Replaying FFIX, trying to use characters I've never really used (such as Quina) and doing the things I never fully completed (Chocographs/frog catching) to see how different the party feels compared to my old regulars Zidane/Steiner/Freya/Garnet.

    Continuing my SaGa love with Final Fantasy Legend 3 and Romancing SaGa Re:Universe.

    With the announcement of SMTV, I'm also finishing up my playthrough of the original Shin Megami Tensei. Have to kill me some Hindu deities before I can have my throw down with Heaven and Hell.

    70+ hours into Persona 4 Golden. I think the end is finally on the horizon. Iíve enjoyed it, but with tighter editing and pacing it would be a shorter but even better experience.
