Got burned from Pokemon after White. Well, I mean I played White for about an hour and realized it's just the same formula over and over and over.

Yup, that's why I cannot understand how Pokemon lasted so long as a franchise. it's the exact same **** over and over and over. The peak was Ruby and Sapphire imo, it was all downhill/or should I say the same hill from that point on. That was the last one that really felt like a true sequel and upgrade to the series.


You're a 10-year-old kid with one/no parent(s). You begin by getting your first Pokemon from the main professor of the town. Mom kisses you goodbye and you leave.
You meet one/two main friends who help you throughout the game. You catch weak Pokemon, level them up, battle six gyms, then the Elite Four. All the while an evil/misguided gang is trying to capture/use Pokemon for their evil/misguided ways.
And throw in some gimmick to change the appearance of the older 'mon to make it seem "new."

All of the games I've played are like this. The other mainstream RPGs I played (e.g., Dragon Quest, FF, etc.) at least have different storylines and different kinds of characters. True, you start weak and grind up like any other RPG, but, as I mentioned, it's the story that keeps me engaged (and the attacks with flashy effects).

I started to feel the same way for TLoZ during Skyward Sword. In one of the levels, I even asked myself (alone in my living room), "Why am I even playing this game?" Didn't play a game in the franchise after that until BotW. I wasn't even excited for BotW until I started seeing streams of it after release. What a breath of fresh air for that series.

Been playing Remnant: From the Ashes since yesterday; really fun so far. Pretty difficult; while I have played souls-like games, I am by no means great, even good at them. This one has a good mix of melee/ranged combat, neat world and aesthetic; and is procedurally generated, even the first bosses friends and I have encountered solo have been different. I could be understanding it incorrectly. The game kind of reminds me of The Secret World, except without abysmal gameplay.

School starts again next week (last year--yay), so of course that means I'm trying to squeeze as many games in as possible.

Switch:
Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled
Golf Story
Stardew Valley
Super Mario Odyssey
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

3DS:
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
Pokemon White

I recently installed CFW on my 3DS. It's pretty neat.

Remnant has been awesome. Co-op is so well done where friends can drop in and out and experience different fights each time.

Agreed, tbh I couldn't believe how easy it was to co-op compared to other titles with similar ideas. They've done a damn good job making some AAA look bad at implementation of certain things.

Can be retro/modern/PC/mobile/Tiger Electronics/etc.

Currently playing Chrono Trigger. Been putting it off for so long. Now that I have a bit of a break from studies Iíve been hunkering down when the rest of the family is asleep and trying to play as much as I can until school starts again.

(Attachment Link)

Not far into it (about maybe a fourth, if that), but so far I really like it. The story and characters are a bit cliche by today's standards, but they are colorful and relatable. The battle system is very good, and I can see myself tweaking it soon to fit my needs. Playing on the DS Lite made me realize how small the screens are (been used to the 3DS XL screens), but it's definitely manageable.

Currently playing Super Mario World 2 and Buildroyale.io . I'm a true gamer guys B)

After reading about Far Cry in a gaming mag recently, I got the urge to play it again (the first one).

After about half an hour I remembered how frustrating parts of it are, how many times you have to replay areas because you didn't reach the checkpoint before getting killed.

Not sure it I'll be able to continue playing - it is just too frustrating for a quick run around a tropical island a couple of times a weekend.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I'm sure it has been mentioned here already, but I've been playing Fire Emblem: Three Houses on the Switch. This is my first Fire Emblem game and I'm really enjoying it. I will say the game gets a little repetitive but the various mechanics of the game keep it interesting.

Anyone else playing it? What are your thoughts?

I started this game a few days ago and so far itís very good.  I usually play a few rounds of Apex at night on PC and the Switch on the couch in handheld mode.  This is another great game for that.  I heard a lot of comparisons to Persona but itís much more cheesy than charming in comparison to P4.  The school/battle structure is similar but being stuck at a religious school in a medieval fantasy world feels less slice of life than a moderately explorable modern rural Japan.

I havenít played Splatoon in about a year but I bought my Switch mostly for Splatoon, I love that game, just got burnt out on ranked.  Maybe I should play it up again.

Playing Blasphemous. It's good but far from great, or even being a flawed masterpiece. The game does seem to be on the short side, and ultimately it feels like a bunch of planned features were cut in the interest of time. I'm not a big fan of the soundtrack either, it is forgettable at best. There is a fair amount of backtracking, and it seems like the level designer has not worked on a Metroidvania game before due to how poorly areas flow together. The controls are tight and the combat is fun. I am always excited to encounter a new enemy type and see what they do. The art direction is amazing at times, but weirdly bland at others. I dunno, the game is good, but just feels rushed. There could've been so much more polish that would've elevated this from good to great. I like it much better than some similar offerings like Dark Devotion, Death's Gambit, and Slain. Honestly the aesthetic and story could've gone even darker. I think if we ever see a sequel it will come together as something really great, but this is still worth playing.

Devoted some time to reading reddit tips/tricks posts for Pixel Dungeon.  I'm at least making it to the fifth dungeon now so that's cool.  Not terrible for < 20 games played.

Also maintaining an extended Kingdom of Loathing aftercore run (lvl25 atm--130 day run so far).  Hopefully I'll remember to finish my guild orientation soon so that I can journey in to Hobopolis.
