Now Playing May 2018

Beaten

None, I had finals.

Ongoing

Suikoden V – I’ve played through the big opening segment, which I have a post about going up soon, and I have to say the technical flaws are dragging the experience down for me more than I expected. There are just too many instances of characters joining the party, with a blurb, only for them to leave two rooms later, with another blurb. The menus are a mess. It is in a lot of respects a really badly put together game. I still love it anyway.

Pokemon Crystal – I’ve been playing this. If I manage to finish it, it will be the first time I’ve finished a Gen 2 Pokemon game. I’ve failed several times with Silver and HeartGold and the like. Mostly because Gen 2 are the worst set of Pokemon games. Getting to go back to Kanto is great, but the level curve is messed up, the map sucks and the Pokemon distribution is terrible. Still, there is something overall just great about the Pokemon series that makes them compulsively playable.

The Alliance Alive – I am really starting to lose interest in this. I love the art and graphics and the SNES vibe to the story. Let’s be honest, though, SaGa style leveling is terrible, it has been terrible since FF2 and it is still terrible today. It adds another level of randomness that leveling didn’t need. I get the idea behind it, but it has never worked. I’ve got other games to play, but the positives about this game might draw me back despite that.

Upcoming

Yakuza 0 – Eventually I am going to take my PS4 back from my brother, and then I will play this. Eventually…

Super Mario Galaxy – I am trying to get back to this, but my summer schedule is somehow more full than my schedule during the semester.
