Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town

It's a decent remake of the GBA Harvest Moon (apparently they lost the rights to the Harvest Moon name) but not quite as good as Stardew Valley.

Nearly refunded it on Steam though as the game originally appeared to be entirely in Japanese, too a bit of digging to work out how to change the text to English.

Forgot about Doritos Crash Course in my last post, I've been playing it occasionally to see if I can't get gold medals on every non DLC levels. Good fun, especially it's free game! I know there's sequel but haven't gotten that one.

Little Nightmares
Barely started this, but I like the dark tones of it so far. Doesn't seem to be much to do so far - just walk right and slide the odd object or pull a lever - but the atmosphere's good. Looking forward to playing more tonight perhaps.

Dead Space
I've had this in my backlog for a while and thought it would be a good time to start it. Decent so far, although I'm not a massive fan of the over-the-shoulder view. Think the enemies appear too frequently as well. They're not as scary or impactful when they're popping up every few seconds. So far at least I think they'd be better being harder to kill and appearing less often. It's okay though, will hopefully get more time with it over the weekend.

Almost done with Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories, I've 100%ed Sora and got him to max level so all I need to do is max out Roku (sitting at Lv72 or so) which is gonna be more of grind more so than trying to get enemy cards for card catalog since Riku doesn't have sleights (abilities) that clears out rooms really fast unlike Sora.

Gotta take breather soon and play something else, probably Pipe Push Paradise

Carto (1X, Game Pass).

Coming to the end now, and have really really enjoyed it. It's a proper puzzle game, but not nearly as stressfull as they so often seem. I think i must be really bad at it though, my play time is about 50% longer than what all the reviews state, and i have not even finished it yet. Oh and i hit a bug at one point that appeared to be game breaking, but the developers website has an easy workaround for the issue. So that was a relief.

Started playing Cultist Simulator on my phone. I had no idea what I was doing at first but something about it kept bringing me back and now I feel I at least understand the very basics. It's so intriguing and I think I love it.

Well, that certainly sounds like an accurate simulation.

Watch Dogs Legion
The game feels like a mixed step forward for the series, the jump to London is great, the streets are so detailed and the game looks fantastic at times. The much hyped recruitment feature is a cool idea that does work well, but I really don't have no feel for the character they just feel like expendable fodder that can be replaced by any member of Joe Public, that's why I miss a proper protaganist. Maybe if they let us create our own character then maybe it would feel different.
Also we have the typical open world glitches and technical crap.

strawberry floating great game, haven't played it for a while, but will have to go back to it.

Shame the guy behind it turned out to be a creep, but I'd already bought the edition that came with all future DLC when it launched, so I suppose I at least haven't financially benefited him since that came to light.

After a few days a way from it I’m back on with The Witcher 3, just doing side quests in Toussaint, Blood and Wine is really good.

Wanted to take breather from endless grinding on Re: Chain of memories (god clearing out battles as Riku is lot slower) so I've been playing Dragon Age Inquisition and Phantasy Star II.

I've played former on pc but wanted it on Xbox to chill, really enjoying taking my time with it learning about Dragon Age world and it's much better game than DA2 (and I enjoy that too) although I've been hooked on Phantasy Star 2, got further than I did on old save (I did went on my 360 to upload the save, but then I was like eh I'll start again) although it has problems and it does look like Master System game to be frank.

Still, keeping me busy and I'm curious about Phantasy Star 3&4. Not sure why Sega didn't port them to Xbox Live Arcade, but I'll get mega drive collection on Xbox eventually anyway.

Phantasy Star IV is brilliant, one of the best JRPGs I've played.

Skyrim on Switch Lite. About 60 hours into it, got 80k saved and maxed out destruction magic. Enjoying the game much more than I did when I've played it previously on other systems.

Wish my image sig would work

Phantasy Star 2

I'm near the end of game, I just need collect 6 more items and I'll be able to go to last dungeon. Can't lie my enjoyment went down a bit.

TP (Tech Points) is very very limited. If I were to use them up on Rolf (strongest Tech user) I'd hardly cover most of the dungeon.
Levelling takes while, and I have yet to find another enemy that spawns

The dungeons are pretty boring and the last few wasn't really fun to explore - it was just lot of dead ends and considering with TP issues mentioned earlier it isn't worth exploring.

Lack of visible info. What does the tech do? What is the equipment for? What new tech did they learn? And the dungeons offer strawberry float all on difference areas so you just end up going in circles.

The first half of Phantasy Star 2 was fun if flawed, but can't say I'm liking rest of it. Hoping 3 fixes most if not all of these issues for me

I've been playing Hitman 2 again alongside Alien Isolation and it really is one of my favourite games ever (Hitman, I mean). When Hitman 3 lands in January and all 3 games are part of one big package, I'm never going to need another game again :wub:

With Phantasy Star 2 finished (about time, started in 2009 but was ended up forgetting about it due xbla craze) I've went back to Dragon Age Inquisition on Xbox one, I really enjoyed what I've played of pc version but anxiety and other stuff got in the way and now I've had urge to play it again I'm having a blast.

I dunno if it's Origins beater but it's very very good game (although has some issues), didnt realise hours go by as I explore/do sidequests/talking to people.

Full Throttle Remastered.

It’s not a patch on the Lucas Arts games I have played in the past, nor on Thimbleweed Park. Really disappointing.

I played Hitman 2 quite recently and it is just brilliant. For some reason the save from the first game never carried over but whatever, it was probably for the best to start off without immediately having the lockpick!
