CoTM is really good. But to me, it feels more like a rygarmania version of Bloodlines than CV3.

The looks and music, and the overall feel of the game.

 

But that might be, because i played right after i did an intensive on Bloodlines to try and finally finish it (i did once and won't ever again)

I had already played Aria and Harmony before and Circle def. feels different, more akin to the older games.

 

But, Aria still holds the top spot of the GBA games, imho.

 

 

 

 

I'm playing Ys6: The ark of grinding. Seriously. So much grinding in this game. I feel like without it, the game isn't more than 3hrs. But i'm up to 10hrs and i think close to the end.

I like CotM the best of the three GBA Castlevania games precisely because it feels like it has more of a unique identity. Harmony of Dissonance and Aria of Sorrow are definitely more derivative of SotN.

CotM was rad. It always felt different to me than the others and everyone calling it more on the CV3 side than SotN in this thread is making sense of my feelings.

The only thing I didn’t like about it was that it seemed exceptionally dark/hard to play on a non-backlit gba. But that doesn’t matter any more so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I only played it on my original GBA before I got one of those battery-draining worm light things that really just puts a glare on the screen more than helps light up the game. Someday I may play it on an emulator or something.

Playing Hollow Knight, about 20 hours in. I feel like I could have shaved off about 4 hours if I didn't have to wander around so much. Action is good though.

Played Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime with bro-in-law and niece the past 2 days and it is fucking awesome! There are games that are multiplayer where having more players simply means having more targets, more damage to soak up, and more attack power, and then there are multiplayer games where the multiplayer aspect is integral to the design. Lovers is in the latter camp and it's absolutely amazing. The only downside is that it is local co-op only.

I got Dead Cells for Switch. It's been on my List since before it came out, and said list needs me to actually buy something, so I went ahead.

When I started, I was pretty bored because you fight through tons and tons of enemies that can't hardly touch you, and therefore the combat didn't feel satisfying at all. That's worse, you don't build up the skills that let you survive when you actually find something difficult. I would have preferred harder enemies with shorter levels.

However, I think the point is to blow through things as fast as you can. There are doors that lock after so many minutes of that game, behind which are huge rewards. Every game a speed run. Which is fine. It just means the base combat isn't very deep.

The said, I kind of bounced off of Nuclear Throne and Gungeon, so I might actually like this more. I might end up liking it more than Rogue Legacy too. Only time will tell.

 

Just started it tonight. Not sure if I like it...? Made it to Forgotten Sepulcher on my 3rd run. Seems like this is going to feel really, really repetitive. Enemies/bosses also feel like damage sponges if you don't have good enough gear.

 

I loved Rogue Legacy BTW. That one gripped me immediately.

 

I played some Dead Cells and it was fun but this post got me thinking about Rogue Legacy so I went back to that...and put a shitload of hours into it in a very short time.  Apparently there's an unlockable class I'd never heard of called the Dragon, which is pretty fun (and makes killing the Forest boss really easy).

 

Edit: beat it.  I enjoyed it, not too hard but not too easy, satisfying.  Looking forward to NG+.

Beat Hollow Knight. Verdict = I had fun at times, but at 79% completion I have absolutely no desire to play futher.

Maybe it would have been better if I wasn't constantly being distracted by either flight turbulence or a baby, but I was always getting lost. To illustrate, I did end up looking up a map online, only to find how to get back to a place I already went to twice.

i just started Final Fantasy XV after having given it a try or two a few years ago but couldn't get sucked in past the training. now I'm sucked in and really loving it. I love the world and the exploration aspects of it. i also really love the bounty hunting stuff. however i hate everything involving the stupid car that you have to drive around and just sit in while moving between towns

also I want to fuck cindy

Two things. You can buy the soundtracks to all the other Final Fantasy games for your car stereo which makes driving much more bearable. Also fuck driving, this game has one of my favorite chocobo themes ever and riding Chocobos in this game is awesome

I started playing the "new" Strider last night and I was pleased with what I was getting out of it. Very straightforward but satisfying to play. Moves really smoothly and is fun. Not remotely difficult, I beat the first few bosses without taking a hit, and the only death I had was a result of tanking shots since you can just run past most enemies and I wasn't paying attention. I'll probably finish it farther down the line. It's cool having a rygarmania with Strider.

FF7, this time the iOS version. It crashes on my oldass ipad 2, but runs great on the iphone. Option to turn random encounters off, which I have utilized only a little bit but man it’s nice to have it. Now that I’m on the overworld I’ll like the option of exploring without my direction sense getting interrupted every few seconds.

Now on NG+ in Rogue Legacy, I'm a little surprised that my choice of classes has basically done a 180.

 

Early on I loved the Shinobi/Hokage for their speed and consistently high damage.  It makes sense considering I hadn't had time to upgrade my critical hit rate/damage.  Miner/Spelunker was also good when I wanted to get some gold, since it's tough to get much early on, and for the ease of locating fairy chests.

 

Later, the Dragon was useful for its mobility and ranged attack.  It's good up to the end of a first playthrough, where the enemies aren't too tanky, and the mobility really helps for fighting bosses (ESPECIALLY Herodotous/the slime).  The Dragon's usefulness drops off later because its damage output can't keep up with the enemies' higher HP, and the mobility isn't as useful against the projectile spam in some rooms.

 

Now, the Assassin is the way to go.  The boost to critical hit rate/damage is the best way to keep up with the enemies' HP, and the mist form is crucial for avoiding damage.  The runner-ups are Barbarian and Paladin, because the Barbarian's Shout clears projectiles (including Ponce de Leon's flames) and the Paladin's Shield also prevents damage (but at the cost of making you immobile while using it).
