    Man I'm starting to like the characters in Danganronpa more and more. Especially the delightfully crazy ones. Somehow those always end up pretty high on my list of favorites =P

    What's that you say? You want me to tie you up,
    nail to a wall and poke tons of pretty little holes
    in that young, nubile body of yours? Ooohoohoo
    this is SO EXCITIIIIIIIIIIING~~~!

    I'm playing the original Romancing Saga again, and, despite what numerous people have told me, this game is absolutely fantastic; your characters can be whatever you want them to be, you can do or not do whatever quests you choose, the story (though quite light) is only as there as you want it to be, the final boss is ACTUALLY hard (assuming you don't abuse glitches), and there is just so much to find for a title from 1992. It is certainly flawed, especially when it comes to the sheer number of enemy encounters in the game, but that hasn't stopped me from enjoying it.

    I am in love with this game. It is so up my alley it isn't even funny. It combines things from some of my favourite RPG's in to one, the voice acting is great, the gameplay is fun. I can barely put it down

    Pillars of Eternity is basically Torment mixed with BGII and that's just swell.

    Front Mission 3 has been a pretty nice change of pace for me. I'm also happy to actually be playing a turn-based Tactical RPG that I can really get invested in after so long.

    Anyway, besides some of the unique gameplay aspects of the game and it has giant robots, my favorite element of the game right now is the story and world. Front Mission is like the Real Robot version of Suikoden in terms of world building with each game being standalone (well except FM5) but all interconnected to each other with how the various countries have been getting along after each game's incident. Technically FM3 is the last game chronologically but it's interesting to see how the series central theme of "Nationalism vs. Globalization" has panned out and I enjoy the fact the series doesn't try to rope you into good guys vs. bad guys.

    In FM3 for instance, you have two different story scenarios (amusingly decided on by whether you decide to help deliver a package with your friend or not) but if you play both scenarios, you find yourself on opposing sides of the conflict and learn that whichever side was the "evil bad guys" are actually pretty well adjusted figures fighting for what they believe in. Also, I'm always amused when I play a game where the U.S. (USN in FM's timeline) is not the paragon but actually treated as being realistically an out for themselves kind of psuedo-empire. Even more surprising is that Japan (the JDF specifically) is actually the game's villain which is rare coming from Japan itself, especially when other countries are involved. Even more interesting is how eerie the set-up of the game has been mirrored by reality lately as the conflict kind of begins thanks to Japan's military wanting to break out of it's Pacifism Clause in their constitutions and begins utilizing Black OPS to build up their military power to break away from the OCU and re-establish themselves as a powerful nation state instead of the series Federations that dominate the globe. Seriously the big picture story of the series is pretty intriguing. Definitely one of the most complex franchises to come out of Square.

    Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth - I'm only two hours in, but this game is great all around. The music is great, the combat is fast, and I got a Veemon pretty fast. The character artist is Suzuhito Yasuda, who did the characters for Devil Survivor and this kind of feels like a MegaTen game.

    Darkest Dungeon is truly dark and also very challenging. I dig.

    Although I only get on at the weekends, I'm still really enjoying FFXIV. Wish I got to play more and I wasn't always so tired after working all week.

    Resident Evil 4 is great. I've beaten the PS2 version, unlocked everything, I'm playing a round where I can afford any weapon I want. When I want to take out frustration on a stressful day. Going a round of mowing down cultist Ganados is still satisfying. Mind you, the Gamecube version looks better than the PS2 version, but it doesn't have all the unlockables like the Special 2 costumes, I'd trade the better look for Ashley's knight armor because I no longer have to worry about the escort sessions of the main story.

    Rocket League, can getting insanely intense and satisfying when in a good game. Up there with the best online multiplayer experiences I've had in any game.

    Overwatch is so fun. I am in closed beta and wow this is a fun team hero based shooter. I'll probably be getting it now.
