Started up a new file in MegaMan Battle Network 6 Cybeast Gregar for the heck of it (and because it's the best Battle Network game). I completed the BlastMan scenario and I'm moving into the DiveMan scenario. I spent waaaaaaaay too much time grinding for chips, Zenny, and anything else useful, both on the regular Net and in the Security Robot Computer (where the prizes are much better at this point in the game). I also bought out all the available HP Memories at the NetMerchant in CentralArea2, along with buying two Unlocker Subchips to get the two Purple Mystery Data cubes that are accessible right now. I completed the GigaCannon1 PA thanks to getting both a Cannon C and Cannon *, along with gathering up the chips needed for WideBurn1 from the Security Robot Computer areas. I also have a TON of Reflector1 A chips. I'll probably max out before Asterland (aka discount Higsby's) opens up. I'm now heading to Seaside Area but first I need to get the "Tool Program" that the plumber's Navi dropped... from Lan's toilet. Ugh. That just doesn't sound right even though smart toilets are actually a thing. MegaMan currently has 200 HP.

I'm trying (and failing, I simply cannot multitask to save my life, LOL :rolleyes:,) to replay Pokemon Sun (though I guess I should say beat it for the first time, since I restarted the game the first time I played it without actually finishing it,) The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker, and beat Super Mario Sunshine on my Switch (3D All-Stars,) for the first time. (Notice the little summer theme I've got going on here? :giggle:)

Got Digimon Cyber Slough today and started. The first five hours have been interesting, to say the least. Definitely not just some carbon copy of Pokemon, at least not as far as setting and story goes. The combat is a bit familiar yet still different and still not far enough to really understand some of the mechanics, but it's been an interesting ride so far.

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
Thanks! I always try to craft a balanced team with whatever Pokemon game I happen to be playing. :) Truth is though, it's actually not that balanced; half my team is weak to both Ice types (which are thankfully rare in Alola,) and Fairy types. Thats.......why I'm glad that Magnezone and Salazzle are on the team. Between them both, they cover both Ice and Fairy, not to mention other types as well. Plus, Salazzle resists 8 different types, while Magnezone resists a whopping 11! That'll definitely be helpful, and cements their status as key members of the team. :D

Rune Factory 5

Doing filler stuff trying to earn more money and stock up on logs and stones for renovations which is a drag (I know I can buy them from Heinz, but they're not cheap and even with the rotating stock trick, they haven't appeared yet).

Also trying to find a way to boost my RP since some recipes are in the 10,000 range and I have less than 2,000.

Minecraft: Booted up the old world I had running to locate and explore the newly added ancient cities. In the time I was there I managed to find enough echo shards for a recovery compass. Not that I expect it to be particularly relevant, since by this point pretty much the only things likely to kill me (except maybe a warden I guess) are also the kind of thing that will make whatever I was carrying irretrievable in the first place. As such my level of progression has officially caused the loss-aversion to set in, and I would literally prefer to reset to a regularly-updated day-old or so backup of the world and lose that session than bother with the almost certainly fruitless task of item retrieval, or the simply herculean task that would be replacing them from scratch. Anyway, I got that compass because I just figured it'd be cool to have if I'm picking up all this stuff anyway, an Otherside disc (very cool), a book for Swift Sneak III (very useful given that I need to come back), and 8 out of the required 9 fragments of Music Disc 5 before my night vision ran out (and I sure as fuck ain't hangin' around somewhere like this without being able to at least guess most of the places I need to be quiet). So I gotta go back home and brew up some new ones for a second trip.

Completed Torna the Golden Country about 2 days ago. I finally understand Blade Combos now, would've been nice to know all that during the base game! Starting another playthrough of Xenoblade DE tonight.

Went back to playing Shin Megami Tensei V after a bit of a break (screw going through the Demon King's Castle, was the reason why I didn't do another run right away). The first run I decided to go for the Law alignment, I was going to go with Chaos at first but turns out I leaned more towards Law and somewhat Neutral. Anyway, this time I'll go for the Chaos alignment and then third run I'll go Neutral, then I'll go for the hidden second neutral ending.

I also decided to play FEW Three Hopes a few days ago. I was going to wait until I finished my Samurai Warriors 3 replay, but I got curious about the story and just went for it (I'm almost done with SW3 anyway, so it can wait a bit). Decided to go with the Golden Deer as my first run like I did with Three Houses; it's okay so far, it took a while for me to warm up to Shez, but they're cool (though they'll never beat Byleth when it comes to 3H avatars, mainly cause Byleth reminds me a bit of Kris, the avatar in New Mystery of the Emblem). I'll just say that so far I'm glad it's a spinoff, though I do like that the GD route is more fleshed out here.

Been playing through Digimon Cyber Sleuth all week, I thiiiink I'm nearing the endgame? The plot has certainly taken some interesting turns and like with Xenoblade DE I thought I was nearing the end earlier and was wrong lol. The story's honestly nearly gotten to me a few times, surprisingly.

It's definitely been an interesting ride. A lot of gameplay mechanics are very Pokemon-like but also very different. I'm really enjoying it though. Will definitely be looking into the new one coming out soon, but it'll be after Xenoblade 3.

Finished Ys II earlier inthe week, started up Strangers of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin not long after, but haven't gotten to make much progress yet.

I booted up a new instance of FTB Academy yesterday. Too tired to play it today, however.

Minecraft: Got that last disc shard and made the disc. And after that, well, there honestly wasn't really that much else worth doing. The frogs don't really hold much of an allure for me so the cities were the only addition I cared about.

Mega Man X3: Finished with the Hyper Chip. Pretty good, probably about on-par with X1.

Hades: Did my first run for a few months. Aspect of Guan-Yu, since I like to let RNG pick my aspects so it doesn't get stale. But, even with a big handicap weapon like that, I still got it. Heat 9 escape.

Devil May Cry 5: Started mostly just to make sure the pre-owned disc works, but now that I've started I figure I might as well just add it to the active games I'm playing at the moment, I've got the space. Anyway it is a very strange thing to try and play. Finished stage 2 and I currently have no actual idea how to properly utilise Devil Breakers by willingly breaking them and stuff, evasion feels very weird, and I cannot possibly fathom for what possible reason they decided to make your moveset change depending on whether you're currently locked-on or not. I suspect I'll get used to it eventually but it's really weird to start out with.

So I was NOT nearing the endgame. I think at that point I was a little past the halfway point. I THIINK I'm actually nearing the endgame now. I think. This has been quite a long story.

I will say that as much as I've enjoyed it, I'm ready for the story to end. It's been a long ride already.

Is the whole Rena plot point a reference to another game or something? Because otherwise It felt so random and unnecessary.

There are other main quests that felt kinda unnecessary or like "the world is ending, is now really the time for this?" but that's about it as far as story complaints go. It's been a good, sometimes emotional story overall. I like the main characters even if they got on my nerves at times (including my own character). Nokia in particular grew on me. She went from annoying and useless to an actual leader leading the movement to get people to see Digimon as living things. Meanwhile I liked Arata and Yuuko from the beginning but actually got a little annoyed with them during the second half.

And then there's Kyoko. Just love Kyoko. I zone out when she's talking at times, but she's great.

Kinda feel bad that some of the Royal Knights we were fighting just died thinking they were still in the right instead of giving us a chance, but I guess that's the kind of darker story this is. You don't always get the enemy to understand you.

At any rate hopefully I'll actually finish the story today so I can have a complete opinion of it.

Just finished it and almost cried multiple times. That was an emotional as heck ending man. I have such mixed feelings.

And looks like it's a Xenoblade-like situation where there's no post-game and the game just acts like you never went to the place of the final battle besides letting you keep your levels.

Apparently this game comes with Hacker's Memory, which I didn't know until after I booted up the game. I guess I'll be checking that out next. Trying to decide if I should go ahead or take a break to play something else or not.

Well, you're right that you'll meet someone from another game, but it's not Rena (not sure how to count Mirei since she debuted in a 3DS game).

Yes, Rena is from the extremely popular game "Digimon World Re: Digitize" (the Digimon World and Story games are set in parallel universes) which never came to the West so to foreigners it won't mean anything but to use an analogy, it would be like if Wes from Pokémon Coliseum suddenly turned up in Sword/Shield to help you take down Eternatus. There's quite a lot of fanservice moments crammed into Cyber Sleuth but Rena (and also Mirei) are the only ones that turn up in Story missions so they stick out more for it.
