so, there was a nine month gap between the launch of the Dreamcast in Japan and America, and Sonic Adventure was a launch title for both. In the months of localization, there were also a handful of tweaks and improvements made to the US launch version, and Japan decided to release an updated version titled Sonic Adventure International with all the improvements + all the language options from the NTSC and PAL releases.

Jet Set Radio also got something similar when the US release (Jet Grind Radio) added two entire levels plus new story for them, it got rereleased in Japan as 'De La Jet Set Radio'.

Ah, yes. I'll never understand why Japanese devs backport the US version of a game and sell it as “International”, but only in Japan.

I didn't go to the lowest, but the first option below "normal" (whatever their weird names for difficulty were) and yea even then there's almost zero indication when you're being hit. Oh hey wonder where those gunshots are coming from surprise your armor and half your health is just fucking gone!

just picked up Dragon Warrior Monsters 2 again as a sort of pre-bed gaming on my new Game Boy Light. even though it’s a GBC game technically, you can play it in shades of grey on the original GB b/c it’s one of those grey cartridges instead of the clear ones. i’ve said pretty extensively elsewhere about why i want to play games with restricted palettes, so i won’t reiterate that here.

anyway, this is my third attempt playing, i started a while ago when i first bought this cartridge but had trouble getting into it. seemed pretty confusing w/ very few clues as to what to do. and the system seemed so convoluted, so i was frustrated.

but now i’m a bit further in and can maybe see me going through this time.

but honestly, the more i play other Game Boy RPGs the more i think about what Pokémon Gold/Silver did right. and how much more intuitive of a game it is. its sprites are gorgeous too. and yet the world is so expansive. i feel this way about Link’s Awakening as well.

i’ll keep playing and see how i feel.

More DS games I'm going back to, at least in part because the DSi XL is just sooooo nice, Kirby Super Star Ultra being one. Got that at a flea market ages ago but never even started playing it, now am ex. 51/60 treasures into The Great Cave Offensive.

I picked up Celeste the other day, and it's really good.

It feels like a spiritual sequel to Super Meat Boy, more than The End is Nigh ever did (which is strange, considering the SMB and TEiN are both by Edmund McMillen).

Yeah, if you can afford to play it, you're kinda doing yourself a disservice by not playing it, it's an experience and so far my game of the year.

I was playing that day one on PC but only played the trials mode to get used to the mechanics of the game. Haven't found my team to main yet but will work on it later on.

I've been playing the original Diablo. I've been spoiled by the modern Diablo clones that I've played in the past, but after spending some time getting used to how it plays, it's been pretty fun.

Although the other games (Torchlight, etc.) may have various conveniences I take for granted and more in-depth gameplay, I've grown to appreciate the old-fashioned simplicity of the original. Also, the dark/hellish atmosphere unique to the series is interesting and something I'm starting to like as well.

i'm done with mario odyssey. a wonderful game; i loved it and i think it's my favorite 3D mario. right now i am finally, finally playing the legend of zelda: breath of the wreath.

the legend of zelda: boople of the woople seems like it's a far different experience to what i'm used to. the legend of zelda: boink of the woink wears its influences on its sleeve more openly than many other Zelda games. the Skyrim and Minecraft influences are apparent in the legend of zelda: blargh of the wargh. i'm not 100% sure how i feel about the legend of zelda: beavis of the weavis yet, or if its massive changes are good or bad or what. there are some things which i think are pretty janky physically, tho, in the legend of zelda: bug of the wug. i've also frankly had more fun just wandering around doing random stuff in the legend of zelda: bapple of the apple than i have with its main quest. i think, ultimately, i will come to like the legend of zelda: beeb of the weeb, but i definitely need more time with it and it's definitely not clicking with me as immediately as the legend of zelda: skoopward swoop.

this is a fucking terrible post even by my pathetically low standards and i will be enraged with myself if i end up clicking the submit button

edit: i'm fucking pissed w/ myself rn

I actually dug deep through my Steam archive and played Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons recently. I'm probably halfway through it or so, but it's been interesting enough. The gimmick has been able to keep up my interest so far, but we'll see how much further it goes.

still trudging along DWM2, finally getting some interesting monsters, but still feeling pretty lost. how do i keep track of monsters? why isn’t there a monster encyclopedia of some sort? wtf is a MadGopher? how do i frigging earn money in this game?

seriously what’s the deal w/ this game? how is it this much more primitive than Pokémon Gold despite coming out 2 years later? i guess it’s cool i get to play as a girl, there’s that.

sigh, i’ll keep playing and see how i feel. maybe this is the point where it “starts to make sense,” but it’s generally pretty frustrating.
