Minish Cap retro? This is making me feel old!
A generalised statement, I know the GBA is fairly young.

Been playing Persona 5 recently and been enjoying it a lot. From the setting to just how the cast get their persona not because "uh, here" but there's so much character buildup leading to it that it's such a "Yeaahh!" moment.
SpoilerShow
Ryuji gets his when the gang till then's about to be killed and he needs to stand up to what Kamoshida did to him and his track team, Ann gets hers when she's pushed to her limit on what Kamoshida's done and her friend.. and so on


Can't wait for the rest, presuming I stop dying first though. xP

First Dungeon is a bit of a bitch because the Shadows towards the end have a higher level then you'll probably reach and you'll run out of SP hitting weaknesses. Don't be afraid to leave the dungeon and rest if you're worried about social time, because there isn't actually a lot you can do this early on and you get heaps of free time later as the game opens up. I couldn't clear it in one day my first run, and even if I was to do a fresh play through I don't think I could.

That latter part certainly explained a lot, haha.
Beat Kamoshida's Palace the other day, the aftermath of that was nice to see and felt rewarding enough. Now I've got those heaps of free time until I assume the next Palace. Ah well, the Confidant stuff is cool enough for the meantime.

P5 has a good balance. You'll be mentally exhausted after doing the palace and by the time the next one rolls around, you'll be sick of making friends and want to go shadow hunting.

In preparation for Kingdom Hearts III, I desided to play Birth By Sleep.

Picked up the FF12 Remake. Never got around to playing the original the first time it came out.

On the subject Birth by Sleep(at the halfway point of Radiant Garden with Ventus), has anyone noticed combat problems? I hear that:

1. The combos are too floaty, which I think is a tonne of lies
2. Bigger enemies don't stagger, which doesn't bother me, I just spam the command deck.

Osaka gets way too much crap for their games not being KH1 or KH2 levels of combat. But I would put BBS combat system above 1, and near tied with 2.

In terms Chain of Memories, I am stuck on Maleficent.

Final Fantasy XIII on steam.

Chapter 1 hurt my soul and warmed my heart.

Since they removed the VR aspect, Triple, Slyder, and myself played Star Trek Bridge Crew. It was rad!
