You might hold off on declaring a P4 waifu until after you meet more of the cast. Also, you should at least know your waifu's name - Yukkiko would have a pretty weird pronunciation.

Yukkiko, Yukiko, same thing right? (I know it's not but at least you know what I mean.)

We'll see if I change my waifu, we'll see. Inb4 Kanji is waifu.

Hey, Kanji is pretty sweet, mate! Also, I always found hilarious and super weird that Yukiko's "shy" face is a super perverted expression. Pay attention to it.

Beat Senran Kagura 2 a few days ago. Overall I liked it, but it is the weakest of the series for me. Partially because of lack of a real lock on which makes solo fights a pain compared to paired ones, and on the writing end too much time was spent building things up, Yomi's character development was way weaker than in the original game's Hebijo story which makes the decision to retcon it all the more infuriating, and it is disappointing to not be able to play as Kagura or Naraku. I can say I liked the story though as the good parts were genuinely enjoyable, especially the comedy, and fighting in pairs was pretty fun, and it made the Yoma Nest side levels fun too.

I also just beat Dragonball Z Extreme Butoden, the best things about it being its battle system and its villains' story was interesting. Unfortunately that story had a disappointing ending and the other story modes were terribly written.

Currently playing Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl.

Going to buy Persona 3 Portable and Final Fantasy VI today. Huge hopes for P3P seeing as Persona 4 Golden became my #4 favorite game of all time when I finished it last New Year's Eve. Could only go a month without Persona. 

As for FFVI, heard it was very good, it's on sale, might as well play my first FF by now.

Just be careful you don't get yourself over-hyped - it won't matter how good something is if you go into it expecting to be blown away immediately. P3P has its ups and downs, and is quite a bit different from P4G in all aspects aside from core gameplay (which is one of the surprisingly least-important aspects of those two games).

FFVI is a favorite, and IMO it has aged very well, so I think you'll be pleased there. Just don't forget to wait for Shadow.

Not really feeling Persona 3 Portable. Will need some time to adjust to how the gameplay works and the presentation. (VN storytelling, cursor to pick stuff, little stick support (having to use D-pad for battle, saving etc. is annoying), bad text and image quality, etc.)

Junpei's pissed me off with his "see how nice a person I am!" line as soon as he was introduced. Mitsuru and Yukari seem nice, and I'm pretty sure the school board director (forgot his name) is voiced by Igor's VA. Haven't had any day for myself yet though, and P4G wasn't fun by this point either. Not worried at all. Somewhat digging the relatively muted color palette. 

The music is definitely great.

Playing as MaleMC since it's closer to the original.

Probably too late, but I really wanted more Persona. I knew about the game's drawbacks before going in though, so I somewhat knew what to expect.

Also, after P4G becoming my #4 favorite game of all time (behind 999, Virtue's Last Rewards and Danganronpa 2) despite the first 3 or so hours being shitty, I am not worried about my current impressions at all. :D

4 is by far better then 3 but its at least worth a play through I love them both. But least we have Persona 5 to look forward to this year?

Persona 3 fairly different from 4 in terms of themes and how the group dynamic are handled. This time it's not just fun and games, rainbows and friendships.

But it's pretty much up the preferences which these styles you happen to prefer. I personally like 3 more; the main story is better and I feel the way the characters are handled and integrated to the story is better, but that's just me. 

Well, in terms of gameplay 3 has some inconveniences compared to 4 and especially Golden, but it's minor. Even Tartaros is kind of acquired taste, the reactions can range from "worst dungeon in all video games" to "Interesting way to portray progress and working towards a goal".

brb guys, starting up FF7

 

~~
Played close to an hour of FF7.

FF7 is actually quite nice and the graphics, save for the AGONIZING character models, actually don't look bad on Vita. Had to swap X and O due to O being bound to Use and X being bound to Cancel.

Liked the gameplay.

As for the story, Midgar sounds like an amazing dystopia. I might actually like this game's story, which is great. As for characters, nothing exceptionally good or bad so far.

Overall, it exceeded my low expectations. Was this another 70 hour RPG?

I paused playing FF: Type-0 and got back to Lufia II on my good old SNES. I recently cleaned the console und bought some carts I used to own when I was a kid. Now I'm trying to 100% the game for the first time ever. I really struggled back when I was young. :wahaha:

But since Digimon: Cyber Sleuth will arrive within the end of the week I'll probably have to stall Lufia, too...^^

Plan to knock out SAO: Hollow Fragment & SAO: Lost Song, and maybe Tales of Hearts R this month

Anyone who's played the SAO games and watched the anime want to brief me? :kosame:

 

The first half of season 1 of SAO is worth watching, assuming you don't mind obvious male chauvinism, and the second half is terrible. Given how the second half of season 1 went, the second season is probably garbage.

Given how things tanked after the first arc, I expect the games are awful, but I have yet to hear anything at all about them, which is frankly possibly even more disturbing than a simple "yay" or "nay". So, uh... good luck? Maybe go play Senran Kagura instead or something.

Lots of hype for xcom 2 it seems, I never even finished the first one, so I doubt I'll get the second one, the first one was good, but just unpleasant for me, probably because its the first time where I made choices that matter, and everything didn't go as planned, the damn base building.....so it was really fun, helluva fun, the combat and strategy part, but the commander part was not so much fun in my opinion.  That being said, I'm currently playing sunless sea and Helldivers, I'm really getting a kick out of helldivers, top down shooter that has Friendly fire, so much fun, it would be nice to have a couple friends to play with, I remember playing the top down shooter alien swarm with friends, and it was blast.

Been a long time since I posted, a bit of an update with out going in-depth (per usual). 

I am really going hard on my backlog to try to get it cleared up. Just to clarify, my backlog is games that I have purchased and are still downloaded on my handhelds/consoles. Which means if I once owned a physical copy but traded it in I am not going back, if I have trophy % on my PSN trophy list I am not going back, only games that meet the set criteria. Even with that restriction in place I have about 10 - 15 games to go through :vinty:

Since I started though (about two weeks ago), I have beaten Onechanbara Z2: ChaosYo-Kai Watch, and Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. I should beat Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus today as well. And to clarify once more, I consider the game beat once I get the story related trophies out of the way, which typically cover the whole story. This includes trophies such as Persona 4 Golden's where it involves getting the true ending. So no misc trophies, no side quests, none of that. Just going straight for the goal. 

Once I am done with SKSV, I will probably continue Conception II or Monster Monpiece

Holy damn Trails of Cold Steel was amazing!
I can easily put it right next to Persona 4 Golden as one of the absolute best games on Vita. What an awesome experience.

And now I want to play Trails of Cold Steel II so badly...

Maybe it'll be like with Trails in the Sky, and we are in for a wait of 4-5 years :D
