I bought Rayman Arena on Gamecube as a teen because it was dirt cheap at the FYE. I think I bought it again in my current collection but I don't remember.

I ended up having to use Xmapper to use a controller with Rayman 2, but it's still pretty good I think.

I've become addicted to the Final Fantasy Tactics SaltyBet

It's currently in beta. You place bets on teams of AI fighters who compete in the game's unused 2 player battle mode.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions on switch asks if you want Tsubasa to be with or without glasses before you start a new game

Tokyo Mirage Sessions is fun, but I'd like to see more elements from Fire Emblem applied to a JRPG.

TMS is pretty close to a lighter version of Persona, which is a lighter version of Shin Megami Tensei. You hit weaknesses, win fight. In TMS, you forge weapons which then unlock skills that you equip.

Fire Emblem is all about promoting your units to different classes and making a team. Different classes unlock different skills, and you can equip five skills at a time. It's like a standard job system.

Eventually in TMS, you characters' Mirages -- which are, well, Personas -- can promote to one of two classes. Outside of that, there isn't really a job system or anything in the game. And like Persona, your main characters more or less do different flavors of the same thing.

I would have liked to see a job system implemented in TMS that drastically changes the roll each character plays in the party. I like a good weakness system as much as the next guy, but I feel like those are kind of cheap and easy. It's much more interesting to build your RPG with a stronger focus on team composition and build-crafting, at least in my opinion.

I would have also liked to have seen some of those skills from Fire Emblem applied to this format of combat. Skills like vantage, which is a counter that activates when your health goes below a certain threshold. Or Astra, which triggers four consecutive attacks at reduced damage. Astra goes great with skills that increase your critical rate or have a chance of repeating your last attack.

Really, when SMTxFE was announced, I was hoping for a SMT tactics game

been playing Majora's Mask a little lately, thanks to watching zfg streams and wanting to play an OOT i'm not familiar with

i've attempted to beat this game about 12 to 18 separate times in my life, but i think i've finally found an angle to approach it where i'm enjoying it a lot more

either that, or it just helped starting from the halfway point instead of playing through the first two dungeons and quitting like always

i'll write more if/when i actually finish the game - i've been trying for fifteen years, and it's exciting to feel excited about Majora's Mask

Maybe I will

I have a sprained ankle today, somehow, so I'm going to finish Chameleon Twist and try to figure out if I'm actually enjoying Rayman 2

One annoying thing I've noticed about Chameleon Twist is that there's no coyote time, which I'm extremely used to in modern games.

Chameleon Twist is trying to do something neat. The tongue is a cool idea, but I always dreaded entering a room that would require me to actually do precision platforming using it.

the boss theme is good


I've been playing on Hard. It's not quite like the start of SMTIV where you're getting nuked by mob encounters frequently. It's closer to the start of P3 or P4 where you occasionally get wiped by a miniboss and need to re-evaluate the Personas you have equipped.

Atlus' games all have a reverse difficulty curve, so we'll see how it goes.
