Currently playing a combination of Fire Emblem: Three Houses and the new game's Demo, Three Hopes. Fodlan's setting is just really cool and impressive, plus the gameplay of both is pretty engaging.

Finishing Harmony of Dissonance and my opinion of it hasn't changed. It is the worst Metroidvania in my eyes. I already mentioned the bad sound quality, but i also think it has the worst castle design and the worst exploration. It's confusing and tiring, the aumont of times i got an upgrade, went to an area where i could use the upgrade only to find out that i yet needed another upgrade to complete the area were too many. At one point i legit wanted to stopped playing but by some miracle i managed to progress after being stumped for like an hour.

Most of the bosses are lame (and some of them are flat out reused), i can count with one hand the ones that made me chug a potion. Most are slow and have maybe like two attacks that are really easy to dodge. This feels like a kneejerk reaction to people complaining about some of the bosses in Circle of the Moon which has its fair share of rather difficult bosses.

It's also way too easy to break the game with some sub weapon/book combos. Cross + Wind Book is disgusting, trivializing a lot of an already easy game.

I'll say that the graphics are nice (it would suck that the part they worked the most on would be bad as well). Colors are vibrant and varied and some cool background effects. Sprites are also fantastic, for everyone really.

I'm pretty much never touching this game again. Thankfully Aria of Sorrow is next and i remember enjoying it last time i played.

I'm getting closer to the end game (I assume). So I'm trying to level up most of the party members I plan to use.

Going through Aria of Sorrow and the difference of quality with the previous game is like night and day. Much better music (and sound quality), better castle design, better bosses, more weapon variety, better controls and so on. It pretty much improves on every single aspect that Harmony of Dissonance failed at and even the ones that it did well.

Control: Completed both the main story and the AWE DLC, and probably about halfway through Foundation based on guesswork around the framing? Overall a very good game, even if the main story does have a very sudden and underwhelming ending. Honestly kinda feels like they just ran out of time near the end there and just had to smash cut to an ending.

Mega Man X: Finished up the game with all collectables!

BTW Chevywolf30, I'm also currently replaying Sun, how far are you now? I'm still putting the team together, and I'm just about to head to the Battle Royal Dome.

This is my envisioned final team, BTW. Whatcha think? (I'll admit I somewhat cheated by getting Dratini early, I traded over an Egg from my Ultra Moon game. :p)

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. Started with the Blue Lions this time around, after starting with the Golden Deer when I first played Three Houses. I'm not very far in yet, but...I can't express what a delight this game is for me. I absolutely adore Three Houses and I also loved the first Fire Emblem Warriors, and they've done such a good job mashing the two together. I have a feeling I'll be getting a lot of mileage out of this one.

Interesting team, idk that it's something I'd roll with, but it looks pretty balanced. My team is in my sig. Last thing I did was beat the totem in the observatory

I've been aching to replay Pokemon X and Y recently, but I really didn't want to reset over my save of X since I spent so long finding a few specific friend safaris for shiny hunting. So, I finally bit the bullet and ordered a copy of Y since my old one just vanished a few years ago. I'm just starting it now. I don't quite have a team planned yet, but I think for sure I'll be using Chesnaught and Azumarill. I also rarely use normal types in my runs, which is a shame because I love them so much, so I might pick up a Furret or Delcatty.

Currently, Let’s Go, Eevee. Am also planning to find all wisps in Alasterbar Icelands (the place where you catch Tornudus, battle Lord Avlugg, and get Braviary) plus am trying to receive the Noble Pokémon and ride Pokémon too. On Seven Island In LeafGreen.

Jumping back and forth between MegaMan Battle Network 3 and 2.

In Battle Network 3 I grinded the Elec Bug Style until I got the Bug Stop NCP (along with now having 550+ BugFrags). Then I promptly grinded until I got a new Style: Heat Custom Style. This allowed me to easily handle the PlantMan scenario by turning him into roasted veggies, saving Mamoru and now I'm starting the FlameMan scenario. I also completed the following PAs: ZetaCannon2, ElementSword, ZetaPunch, ZetaYoYo2, and MasterStyle. MegaMan has 960 HP (I used one of those Extra Codes to give him 300 more HP) and is equipped with Heat Custom Style.

As for Battle Network 2, I took care of the ShadowMan scenario, getting my first Style Change: Elec Custom (meh...). I then did a lot of side-quests for stuff before moving on to my least favorite scenario... the one where my favorite female character, Princess Pride, is evil, aka the KnightMan scenario. Lan got robbed at the airport but I got my Zenny back, then he got robbed of his chips. The brothers fought then reconciled thanks to Hisgby. I went into the back alley and fought Raoul and his insanely annoying ThunderMan (why do half the Navis in this game tend to lurk in the back row?), getting my Passport back afterward. Then I fought Miss Millions and SnakeMan, getting my chips back. I'm now grinding for Zenny and chips now that I've got my stuff back. I completed the following PAs while I was at it: ZetaCannon2, LifeSword1, and MegaDeathBurst, along with having the needed chips for LifeSword2, MachineGutPunch, and the infamous Gater (though they haven't been constructed yet). MegaMan has 580 HP, his Buster stats are 4/1/3, and is equipped with the Elec Custom Style.

Completed Xenoblade 2 yesterday. Great game but 70+ hours and I still don't understand element orbs, specially how to set them up. The lack of a tutorial section would've been useful for a game as mechanically complex as XC2 @[email protected]
Anyway I started the Torna expansion today and reached Gormott. Might play around with sidequests on the way to Torigoth. The regular battle theme is a banger, might I add.

Rune Factory 5.

I finished Thundering Wastes. First dungeon to truly give me trouble thanks to the lightning. And not a single Lightning Goblin coughed up a Lightning Horn despite the methods I used.

Control: Wrapped up the Foundation DLC. Pretty fun, as the rest of the game has been. Do feel a little cheated out by the ending of the story again, too. Like, yes, the immediate problem of Hiss corrupting the Nail has been resolved. But the Board and Former stuff was just left lying there? Just nothing about that aspect of the story got wrapped up. At this point I'm really hoping for a sequel so we can actually wrap up that outstanding Very Important plotline. Also once I finished up with that I went back to the Expedition Jukebox and the SHÜM cabinets where I could actually finally do the vast majority of that pretty hard stuff (I only really stopped on Deadline Hard Mode 'cause that was just sadistic).

Mega Man X2: Defeated all 8 mavericks with all collectibles collected, on to the X-Hunter stages!

Team Sonic Racing: Just playin' mostly. Managed to actually get some ranked matches for once, which is nice. I'm apparently decently good at them 'case I hit emerald-tier, but also I don't think my number actually went up that much from, like, 9 matches, so I'm not even sure I really understand what the medal tiers even mean.

Disco Elysium (but very slowly because the game is a drag even though there IS something charming about it I must admit).

But the one I AM REALLY into is Triangle Strategy! Now that's the game for me... Political intrigue, philosophy, existential questions, strategic combat and a story that's not very typical for a RPG. If you are thinking of buying it, DO IT! Influencing your comrades' actions is mega fun.
Of course, you can't escape comparisons with FE: Three Houses but I will say: while Triangle Strategy has weaker graphics, overall not as charismatic characters and not such stellar dialogue as in Three Houses, there is something it does even better: non linear plot and a story which outcome you can't as easily foretell as in Fe:TH. There is also less fanservice which may be good or bad depending on your mood or what you are into. Personally, I don't mind fanservice but now I am not in the mood for it so Triangle Strategy's more respectful and subdued treatment of female characters was a breath of fresh air to me. Also, I'd say that protagonist is more charismatic in FE, here he is actually a more believable leader.
