My friend shared his Steam account with me and I found out I can play EDF 4.1 on this laptop.

It's great because, well, it's EDF.

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.

I never really got into the second game, but I loved the first. It's definitely primitive in a lot of ways, but eh.

I do believe there is an encyclopedia somewhere, though. The first game had one.

so I was playing Minecraft on another server and I needed to make some Gray Dye to color the glass on a building I was making, so I went ahead looking for skeletons so I could get the necessary materials, but man, they just weren't dropping anything

but then, finally, the game decided to throw me a bone

I finished Etrian Odyssey 4 and cleared the normal game. Dunno if I want to do the postgame yet, or just let it sit for a while.

I'm currently playing Zelda 1 again because of it also getting the randomizer treatment. It's quite fun when you get a good seed in your favor.

Yesterday I played a bit of Cosmophony and Death Road to Canada.

I got a lot further in Cosmophony than I thought I would. It's a sort-of rythm-based shooter game with only 5 levels. The game starts off relatively easy and each level is drastically more difficult than the previous one. It's not the type of game I generally like, but I wanted to try it out anyway. Level 4 will be a pain to complete, but I think that I can do it eventually. Level 5? No chance, thanks. (flashing lights warning) Also, spoilers I guess? The game has a bit of plot going on, but it's mostly irrelevant.

I got a less further in Death Road to Canada than I thought I would. I severily underestimated this game's difficulty, I'll need to experiment quite a bit to see what works best. This is a 16-bit-styled survival game where you need to gather supplies to survive the road trip to Canada. The way there is incredibly infested with zombies, and you'll need to find the best teammates to help you, the best places to explore and the best choices to make. Basically, try to stay out of trouble as much as possible. Also, stats, there's a lot of them. Also, random events!

I've probably spent the past few months playing Resident Evil: Revelations with a friend, both 1 and 2 (Switch). Side mode's fun, great if you have a partner to get through it with. 2's, fine if you don't have one, 1 is, not quite as fine. But still alright if you're good at it (which I will not claim to be).

Most of anything left in those games amounts to roundup (the few things that have been missed here and there for 1, the way too much being asked of you for 2), though I never did get much more than a foot into the Story for either of them. Already played it in 1 on the Wii U, and, just ended up not having a pressing need for it in 2. But I'll get around to that eventually, I'm sure.

i'm playing the original Ape Escape with my girlfriend right now

so far i'm super impressed with its core concepts, the frequently funny and clever monkey descriptions, the monkey AIs, its music, and its visuals (i love that skybox!)

i'm less impressed with some of the execution of its gameplay concepts though. i think the core controls are super neat conceptually, with the stick for item usage/face buttons switch items, but a lot of little things about it feel awkward or unintuitive (swimming, camera control)

its voice acting is terrible but it's the kind of charmingly awkward terrible i can't help but love

i’m finally getting into the rhythm of the game, but apparently i’m already about halfway done. still haven’t found an encyclopedia though??

don’t find the monsters very memorable or exciting, sadly. except like, Slimes.

I picked up Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Dragonball FighterZ last week, so I'm alternating between those two and Bayonetta, now that it's out on Switch.

XC2 is good, but god damn every game system is about as convoluted as it gets. I was hoping for the easy mode patch to drop so I can ignore most of it and just enjoy the game, but that's been delayed to March 2nd, so for now I'm just pushing through it.

I've been playing Animal Crossing Pocket Camp ever since it had its world-wide release, and I'm still playing! As a long-time fan of the AC series it's... definitely a different type of game, but it's cute enough that I still enjoy playing it. Main thing I'm aiming towards is 100% completion (of course), which means growing 145 of every flower! I've already collected all the flower seeds though so at this point it's just patience until they're all grown, then I can trade them in for flower-themed items.

Meanwhile, after hearing a group of friends gush about and have fun with Monster Hunter World for a week at launch, I caved in and got it for the PS4! ...despite not owning one myself, thus having to play on a family member's console, and only when family isn't watching Netflix and taking the main TV. It's super fun but I feel like it might be kinda short as a MonHun game, which I guess isn't too surprising given it doesn't have G-rank [yet], and the endgame decoration grind doesn't sound too appealing... but for now I'm just working towards making weapons and armor sets that I want. Maybe eventually I'll craft every single armor piece...?

At Chapter 3 in Paper Mario.
Got everyone except Parakarry to Super rank.

Made it to Blue Resort in Bomberman 64.
Using savestates for the cheaper gold cards because no.

At the City World in the Wonderswan Color remake of Makai Toushi SaGa.
Accidentally made my espers OP so I just went and min/maxed my human anyway lol

At the Iron Golem boss in Castlevania: Circle of the Moon.
It's no Symphony or Rondo, but it's good.

At Djose Highroad in Final Fantasy X International.
Grinding a bit every now and then because I wanna do the optional bosses too.

At Chapter 3 in Bravely Default.
Currently grinding the Chapter 2 sidequest jobs (Ranger, Summoner, Valkyrie, Red Mage) to Lv7.

Playing Fatal Fury 2 as Terry.
At the 7th of the first 8 battles in 1P mode (order was Terry -> Raiden -> Andy -> Kim -> Cheng -> Mai -> Joe).
Put down a savestate to continue later. Edit: The timer couldn't initialize on the save state, whomp whomp~ Now I know lol

Beat Jumping Flash! 2's main story.
Thinking of starting GitS PS1 and Robbit Mon Dieu later.

Also beat a replay of Final Fantasy I (GBA version).
Party was Knight, Master, White Wizard, Red Wizard.

Edit: Also forgot to mention I'm in World 3 of 4 in Clockwork Knight 2 (the bathroom).
Savescummed at Origami, the second boss.
The leopard phase is cheap in the western versions because he can injure you while charging and Pepperouchau's physics are hella janky.
According to Tongara from Retro and (he lurks CK tweets on Twitter lol), this wasn't a thing in the Japanese version, which doesn't surprise me.

I will not lie, Pepper is super cute~
I'd pinch his rose cheeks >:3

Also started replaying The Second Reality Project Reloaded (at World 4).
One of the first SMW hacks I ever played, it's really special to me even with its age.

I've been playing PuyoTet. Blitzed through story mode and tried my hand at online.

I did pretty well, though that's probably because you start at the bottom and get pit up against others also at the bottom. However, I did end up fighting some super-high ranked players (and somehow won against a few).

Also, real talk, the T-spin mechanic can eat me. :T

I am a firm believer that T-Spins and SRS in general are terrible, terrible things to have happened to Tetris.

put aside Dragon Warrior Monsters 2: Tara's Adventure aside, probably for good

now playing Pokémon Gold

now what should i make my team? interesting to see how my approach to this game has changed as i got older. before, i'd get the easiest, fastest strategies to win, such as just using Quilava using Ember to sweep Bugsy, for example. but now i feel like i find other ways to make do.

this time, despite having Quilava with Ember, i beat their Scyther by sending out Gastly, using Lick until their Scyther became paralyzed and then depleted Fury Cutter's PP with Spite, effectively walling Scyther. then i just slowly licked it to defeat. this is not a strategy i would have ever done as a kid, but it made it a little more fun.

but now i have the mid-game team planning blues. what pokes should i use? i guess i'll figure it out soon.

Wait, is that Vegeta on point? That's pretty daring, most use him purely for the assist it seems like.

I'm running Hit/16/Tien myself, though I am thinking about dropping Tien, lvl-7 super is fun and all that, but he really isn't doing that much for me as an anchor.

Legacy of Kain: Defiance. Not very good series, but it and Soul Reaver 2 have a kind of interesting story
