nocturnal YL: Game progress update: Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX — defeated Falgior, so it's about 1/3 done (about 1/4 if I count post-game item grinding); WarioWare: Get It Together! — played up to the staff credits (about 5%, I guess). Sept 15, 2021 12:30:19 GMT -5 *
nocturnal YL: This pic is how I'd rate my games on Nintendo Switch so far (subject to change). Numbers are meant to show relative positions; like temperatures in °C and °F, absolute values don't mean much. Sept 15, 2021 12:36:36 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: TGS is ongoing now! I'll probably watch the second half of KOEI TECMO's stream. tgs.nikkeibp.co.jp/tgs/2021/en/contents/program.html Sept 30, 2021 22:51:39 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The Atelier series has been on sale on the NA eShop for the first time since Spring 2020. It's tempting, but I have so many other things to play right now. Oct 1, 2021 11:13:08 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: A speedrun of Atelier Rorona can take as little as 45 minutes. Oct 2, 2021 10:14:27 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: But seriously, this series is a major time sink. Even if you don't want to spend too much time, I'd recommend playing one whole sub-series in order to understand the story. Earlier games can be played without the later ones, though. Oct 2, 2021 10:17:40 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Sophie 1 is often recommended as a starting point, since the story is interesting (for a first game) and is relatively newcomer-friendly*, while I'd say Lulua which is very polished and there are relatively few cutscenes that need knowledge in prior games. Oct 2, 2021 10:23:29 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: *Which… I disagree; you can get through Firis and later even if you're not good at making items, but with Sophie you'll be stuck once you've beaten the game and gets into the DLC. Oct 2, 2021 10:24:15 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Or you can go for Ryza 1, the popular option; just know that you'll miss out a lot of what makes Atelier Atelier if you go for that route.
As for Lydie & Suelle (which got me in in the first place), it has great story but there's a bit of a learning curve.
Oct 2, 2021 10:26:32 GMT -5 *
Nester the Lark: I've got some mixed thoughts on Metroid Dread. I'll try to write up a post about it. Oct 12, 2021 14:43:55 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm finally starting to see myself getting to the end of my quest to make optimal equipment and defeat all extra bosses in Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX. Which means I'm going to write another review post and move on to the next game. Oct 17, 2021 15:56:11 GMT -5 *
Nester the Lark: I think we're firmly in the "conservative and arrogant" phase of the Nintendo cycle. Oct 27, 2021 9:18:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: WHEW. Finally done making the review. It took me a week to do so. I think I went overboard with this one. There are more than 170 screenshots. Oct 31, 2021 12:11:27 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Met the goddesses in Silent Desert in Toal's route. I think Ys Origin is pretty good at giving just enough in both story and gameplay for players to want to try the next route. It's a rare case of multiple story routes done mostly right. Nov 15, 2021 9:49:17 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Almost there. I'm at the top of the tower, but I want to grind for a few levels before fighting Dalles. Unlike most other RPGs I've seen, player level matters a lot here. Battles become very easy if the player is 2-3 levels above the boss. Nov 16, 2021 14:25:59 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ This is common in older Ys games. Even one level can make a significant difference. Nov 17, 2021 11:23:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: About a bit more than halfway into Ys IX, I think. I just got Raging Bull. A rough way to describe this game is that Ys VIII and Ys Origin feel like instant awesomeness, while Ys IX takes some time to get into, but it's good once I get there. Nov 27, 2021 7:26:36 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Finally reached the place where "Adol" sneaked into. Neither the prison nor the Dandelion feel as secure as they claim to be… Nov 27, 2021 9:17:36 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The prison feels like a country club. I kept expecting to find a spa in the next room. ;) Nov 27, 2021 11:50:55 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Got to the final part. Which means I saw that shocking reveal. Nov 29, 2021 13:13:44 GMT -5
