Since I can't play the remake, I guess I'll have to do with the PS1 original. I'm surprised to see that I'm skilled enough now to get the relics and tokens that I couldn't get when I was a kid. Just for completion's sake, I'll avoid 100% the game the first time around so I can see the normal ending.

In Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, I finally buckled down and took on the final low-rank village quests that I never completed on the 3DS. Brought my G-rank prowler, but the hunt itself still took 30 minutes. Didn't feel as OP as I thought I might, but these quests are certainly a doozy (not helped by the requirement of facing them solo). Of course, this unlocked a new, absolutely final village quest where you face off against the Fated Four in the arena, but these are high-rank versions instead of the similar quest with low-rank versions.

League of Legends: Working on playing 5 games with a few champs to do some recording so that I can turn them into videos to share on YouTube. I did my Tristana videos tonight, and I'll probably do my Olaf videos tomorrow night. (I would've had one Olaf video done tonight, but I forgot to start recording until the last bit of the game. I would've counted it, but what I did record wasn't really worth holding on to.) Also wanting to do the PROJECT missions that just came out.

RuneScape: The goal for this month is 69 Smithing and 95 Mining. The last double XP weekend really helped me make some solid progress on the Mining, and assuming I actually get 95 Mining this month, I may actually reach 99 Mining by the end of September and I'll finally have my first skill to 99!!

Animal Crossing: New Leaf: Mainly just playing this while I play RuneScape to make it more bearable since Mining is a more afk skill now, and I may as well do something while I'm doing nothing, haha.

Kingdom Hearts 3: I'm so close to the end!! I think I might be a little underlevelled for where I'm at in the game, but I'm hoping I can persevere through until the end.

Medieval II Total War: England. Skirmishing in Maine in an attempt to keep the French off-balance - I don't want an army massing in Anjou at this point. The Danes made a valiant attempt to take Antwerp, essentially destroying the garrison there. New levies from England are going to have to at least partially reinforce there. King William took Reims, which at least means his army can return to Flanders.

Clearly this is unsustainable, even being able to spend as much gold as I could possibly want. The next plan will be to try to make a peace with either Denmark or the Holy Roman Empire (Preferably Denmark, for the North Sea trade benefits). Taking Anjou will be an important objective, to simplify the defence of Normandy

I've been playing Titanfall 2 lately. It's pretty decent, standard Saturday night popcorn action if nothing else

EDIT: I've also clocked 75 hours into Yu-Gi-Oh WCT 2007. I just beat the 6 round survival duel using Necroface with Gold Sarc/Soul Absorption/Gren Maju Da Eiza. Now trying to pull a Fuh-Rin-Ka-Zan so I can get through the last of the level 3 theme duels. I'm trying to unlock the level 6 duelists and once I beat them I'll consider the game beat

Medieval II Total War; England. The Danes sued for peace, which I'm happy to give in exchange for trade rights. This doesn't quite remove the threat to Flanders, but it does give enough breathing space to reorganise and rebuild. Continued skirmishing around Normandy shows I really need some more cavalry for forcing decisive battles. There's really two options available - lay siege to the fortress at Angers, which will be bloody no matter what I do, or try to take Bordeaux, which would be easier to take but harder to defend

Fire Emblem Three Houses, finished the Golden Deer route:
So I finally completed the Golden Deer route after 30+ hours. Essentially between chapters 17-20 is defeating enemy commanders and killing former students you might not have recruited. Dimitri is killed offscreen after ch.17 is completed, while you get a cutscene killing Edelgard a bit later. Turns out, that the enemy for the Golden Deer route is not just Edelgard but Those that Slither in the Darkness, the ones that controlled Nemesis (whom you see in the opening cutscene of the game), and Nemesis himself is the final boss. He is level 60 and has high defense, he also has shields around him (similar to the ones you have to break when fighting the ancient beasts) so to bring those shields down, make sure to defeat all the enemy commanders first on the map. They aren't too bad though, and their mooks even weaker, so it's best to have your units leveled around mid to high 40's. For Nemesis himself I just used Byleth, Claude, and Linhardt to defeat him, since they were higher in level compared to my other units (around early 50's) while the others only made minor damage, but they tanked hits so yours should too. After that you get a cutscene of Byleth and Claude defeating Nemesis, similar to the opening cutscene.

Also, let me just say that so far my least favorite map is the one in ch.21, The City Without Light. It's just too damn dark to see enemy, and sometimes my, units. Even with the rings around them! The map theme is cool though, very electronic, which I guess makes sense because the underground city looks futuristic (though it's supposed to be a ruin like state), so YMMV if you like/don't like that in your medieval games.

Just to say for those that are in it mainly for supports, there are multiple paired endings for characters. Hilda pretty much asked Lorenz in marriage, but for the ending Lorenz had a paired ending with Claude instead on my file. I think if you want a certain paired ending for other characters, make sure you reach the highest support first for any two characters you want together (if they have up to A rank), cause I realized I completed Claude's and Lorenz's support with each other first before Hilda and Lorenz. Though it shouldn't be a problem for your Byleth and whatever character you want to romance, since it's very easy to raise anyway since I got my Male!Byleth and Linhardt to marry after the war ended. Before the final battle, Byleth will visit Jeralt's grave and remember the ring Jeralt gave him, an option will then pop up asking who you want to give the ring to, so I'm sure if you have multiple strong bonds you have the choice of those characters. (I only had Linhardt since he was the only one I bothered to really focus on lol)

Soloed G-rank Chameleos (the online version) last night, a full 30 minutes but we did it.

Then I tried fighting G-rank Teostra solo -- emphasis on "tried". After that went south and fast, I remembered I still need Rathian Mantles for various armor pieces and upgrades. Or maybe I should gem Rec Level into my Brute Tigrex set, because speed eating is a huge perk in solo hunts.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia - Just started this today, and I'm having a blast already! I'm not very far yet, but I did promote all the villagers' (Alm's friends) classes in the first dungeon. Gotta say, the dungeon-crawling is shaping up to be a welcome addition, and the fatigue mechanic is neat. I'm sure later dungeons will get more complex.

Divinity: Original Sin (EE) - It's been a slow progress, due to how many areas outside the first city have high-level monsters that restrict where I can go at any given time, but I'm slowing inching my way up by completing side quests and finding the appropriate area to navigate first. I do hope the pace picks up afterward. It's been a solid ride so far, anyhow.

Fire Emblem Three Houses, started on the Blue Lions house this time and playing as female Byleth, since I'm not creative with names and don't want to use Byleth as a name again, I just gave her my name. Not gonna bother putting any of this into spoilers since there are few differences so far compared to Golden Deer route in part 1, mainly dialogue differences (both story and for Fem!Byleth) and character reactions to some story elements. Just defeated Lonato not too long ago, now just doing quests and supports again. For this route, I'm gonna recruit Linhardt again (of course, but not romance him this time), Ferdinand, and Lorenz since I only recruited the first on my last playthrough. I'm thinking of using the B support/gifting/tea party methods to recruit the latter two, Linhardt's isn't hard as raising magic/reason is brain dead easy early on, but I just want to see if those other methods are faster or not.

It's always best to promote your units ASAP, especially for a first time playthrough.

As for dungeons, Thabes Labyrinth is the final one post-game and it's stupid difficult. So if you want to try this on your first run, wait until your units are at level 20 to promote and max them out then instead, and maybe Overclass them as well (as they have to be at level 20 to do this). Make sure you are absolutely prepared and have better food/beverages with you.

Pokemon Diamond:

Currently at Fantina, I don't have any dark-types to defeat her, my only hope is my Floatzel, Mina, because she knows Pursuit.

Stardew Valley. Upgraded to the deluxe coop. Now I have blue chickens, void chickens, white chickens, and a rabbit. Just waiting for the dinosaur egg to hatch. Might have to build another coop soon.

Stardew Valley again. Trying to raise a bunch of money so I can finish the bundle that fixes the bus. Really need to grow some apples on top of that, too.

Fire Emblem Three Houses, Blue Lions route. Still on part 1, will be facing the Death Knight tonight in the chapter where you have to rescue Flayn and "Monica". Got Linhardt recruited again, now I'm still working on Ferdinand and Lorenz, though I should be able to get them soon. Been using a mixture of methods mentioned to recruit them, it works just as well and I think a bit faster too, since apparently it lowers the main requirements after supporting them. Also got Shamir recruited too, I actually forgot you can recruit other faculty members, since in my last playthrough for Golden Deer I only got Hanneman, Manuela, and Seteth. Though I think for those three they join automatically after you're at a high level, from what I've read (not sure if it's specifically high professor level or actual level, as by the timeskip both were already pretty high for me).

Fire Emblem Three Houses, Blue Lions route part 1. Got Ferdinand recruited finally and even got Cyril recruited as well. Now I just need Lorenz, hopefully I'll be able to get him in time since the deadline for part 2 rolling around is coming. Though I have been reading that apparently Lorenz can be recruited post-timeskip, as somebody mentioned that during a battle the option to recruit him popped up. Can't confirm if that's true though obviously, so if I can't pre-timeskip then I'll try it out I guess.
Putting this part in spoilers though minor. Just finished the Remire Village mission and we see Dimitri get lost to his darkness in his mind, went from concerned to bloodthirsty real quick. Of course it's obvious why he gets like that pre-timeskip, but still interesting to see actually happen (though it's mentioned before this too, by Dimitri himself and others).

Fire Emblem Three Houses, Blue Lions route part 1. Just received Sothis' powers/blessings and killed Solon. Also before all that, after the ball got the Goddess Tower cutscene with Dimitri, since I'll be romancing him this time. Anyway, by this point Dimitri knows who the Flame Emperor is by the dagger "he" dropped while listening in on Solon's and Kronya's conversation. Tonight I'll be doing the Holy Tomb mission.

Also I noticed for a while, but the students in Blue Lions are actually better battle wise than the Golden Deer students for this run. Dimitri and Claude are both equal in being beasts though, I kind of figured they would anyway and I'm sure Edelgard will be similar when I do her route for the Black Eagles first. And while I like these two characters, I'm dropping Dedue and Mercedes for Ferdinand and Linhardt respectively. They are great for what they do, but I seem to have gotten lucky in having Ferdinand be a better tank than Dedue, and while Linhardt was great in my GD run he's actually a better healer unit this time compared to Mercedes. Overall though, students this playthrough are getting better growths than my last playthrough, and they level up faster compared to my GD students (except Claude, he got them level ups like it's nobody's business).
