Only Chao racing emblems left for 100% Sonic Adventure DX. Although I guess you unlock Metal Sonic and have to replay Sonic's Stages with him for the last achievement? Should be no problem.

I have finished Shin Megami Tensei V twice now. My thoughts are complicated.
Arguably the best the combat system has been. Like a solid 9/10. But the game is so unfinished.

The initially fun-to-explore stratums become a monotonous pain in the ass by the third stratum, because it just becomes a maze of cliff-sides where you're constantly trying to figure out how the hell you get up there. And the map doesn't do a great job of portraying elevation.

The story is more or less a skeleton of a plot that they never went back and filled. You don't spend a lot of time with the characters like you do in IV and IV Apocolypse. No one really gets to develop.

There's also some weird shit you notice that you can kind of tell they intended to do *something* with, but ran out of time or budget or something. You travel between the human world and the demon world, with the human world having the classic SMT overworld thing going on. But you don't really do anything in the human world. You just use it to travel between your dorm and the Tokyo Diet Building a few times.

There's also a full modeled school in the game that you go to, twice. Once at the very start, and once again very briefly before having the area closed off. There's a Very Special Episode bit regarding a character being bullied and everything quite literally going to hell, and it's kind of out of place.

But it turns out it that would have been perfectly in-place at one point. It was revealed in a Famitsu interview that the game was gonna deal with more real-world things like unemployment and classism, and none of that made it into the final game. I imagine they planned for something more persona-y, with going to school and then having a some sort of issue someone's having lead to demon world expeditions.

What we also know is, while the team was struggling with the game's direction for years, the music producers just kept making songs for the OST lol. So there's like a dozen different battle themes, a different theme for each section of each stratum, even two different Cathedral of Shadows themes. And it's all baller.





Anyway, game still fun to play just has a lot of flaws. Here's hoping they do a direct sequel like they did with IV where they can really go in and add more meat.

Been spending a bunch of hours in Hitman 3 lately, trying different things. Not sure why this game amuses me so much.

Great game thus far. It's refreshing to play an Atlus game that isn't a mess.

Cynthia's Garchomp magically out sped my entire team and magically also one shot everything with earthquake? Finally managed to switch between two intimidaters, got a Flash off, and then got extremely lucky that earthquake missed my Jirachi so I could dazzling gleam it from half health to death. My entire team was at full health getting to it but it feels like they might have, uhhh, cheated its stats a little bit. Lucario also could one shot stuff that was above its level with Aura Sphere doing neutral or not very effective damage... Like what? Steelix using Iron Tail had also one shot my Staraptor (level 65) which makes...absolutely no sense.



I don't remember it being that unfair in the originals, using a very similar team.

the music in Strange Journey is weird, at least compared to the sound the series usually goes with. but it really grows on you.

Love the breakdown of this boss theme


the floor 1 theme becomes a real ear worm as you explore it

La-Mulana 2 dropped it's new CBT DLC, so I've been banging my head over that. I'm determined to solve it without any outside help and so far I've been making slow yet steady progress. I've hit a bit of a snag with the riddle "The second meaning of that which was unused in the trap that was useless", but I'm sure it'll come to me eventually. I'm still alive by the way, so you can reset my dead timer again.

My roommate let me download the new Pokemon game on my switch.

Ugly as a transgression against divine law, but having fun so far. Throwing orb at a clueless psyduck has never been so entertaining.
