    I've recently gotten back into FFXIV a little. I try not to get too engrossed in MMORPGs though since I have gone a little overboard with them before. I tend to play it casually in the evenings to relax a little before bed.

    As for other games, I've been playing Castlevania Aria of Sorrow and Hatsune Miku Project Diva Future Tone. AoS is my first Castlevania since beating Super Castlevania IV a few years ago and I'm really enjoying it. Can't wait to beat it and try out SotN next. Project Diva FT is a pretty good rhythm game. Extreme difficulty is tough, but I'll get there eventually. Maybe I'll be able to clear this song one day...

    Aria of Sorrow is one of my favorite games. Keep mind that there are multiple endings so if you get one that feels off you might want to look at a guide or something.

    I've been playing The End is Nigh and Nier Automata. I'm not very far in Nier yet (I spent way too much time figuring out how to even get it to run on PC); I just beat the desert area, but I'm very intrigued by the story. I'm at like 93% completion in The End is Nigh and it's been a ton of fun. Everyone compares it to Super Meat Boy, but I'd say that comparison only goes as far as the controls and general themes, the gameplay is actually structured very similarly to VVVVVV.

    Also both of these games (Nier and TEiN) have really great soundtracks.

    Nice, you played any of the other Etrian Odyssey games? I've only ever been able to play demos for a few of them but they were all super fun.

    This is the only one in the series I've played, but I'm finally getting a 3DS when the New 2DS XL comes out. I'll definitely pick up 5 when it comes out and maybe a couple of others in the series.

    Play all of them to the point where you can't dedicate enough time to get really good at any one of them individually, like me. You'll end up painfully average at everything, but at least you'll be able to beat your irl friends at anything they think they're good at.

    btw SFV has a free multiplayer beta going on this weekend if you have a PS4 & PS+ or a PC good enough to run it. Since its free, it might be worth a shot even if you don't enjoy it by the end. The DLC situation isn't as bad as the internet says it is. The costume DLC is overpriced, just like every other fighting game with costume DLC. Its expensive but you don't need it to play. The character DLC is fairly reasonably priced though imo, and even though I haven't spent any real money on SFV I've still managed to buy 4 of the 8 DLC characters released so far with in-game money, with enough to buy a 5th when I want to.

    (but KoFXIV & GGXrdRev are both awesome too so idk man, whatever you pick you'll probably enjoy)

    I take it a step further and buy a lot of them and then ignore all of them because I'm playing something else. I finally decided I'll dedicate myself to ONE of them and hope it works out. I might check out SFV this weekend, I was never huge on 4 but EVO always makes Street Fighter look so good

    I've been playing SMT Nocturne, I'm gonna finally jump into the Persona (3-5) games afterwards.

    P2 is pretty good too, even if it is significantly different from 3-5 (granted, I'm a sucker for late 90s and early 2000s JRPGs). Also, I highly recommend playing 3-5 in their order of release. I want to finish 3 and 4, but going back to them after 5 addresses almost all of my problems with them will be tough. 

    Anyway, I'm still playing Persona 5. I'm a little over 50 hours in, and I'm still enjoying it quite a bit. I've got some gripes with the dungeon system, but I've had those since P3. 

    I'm trying to decide which fighting game I want to get into next. The only one I'm good at is SoulCalibur, but 5 came out 5 years ago and they still haven't announced a sequel. Tag Tournament was the last Tekken game I really enjoyed, and I have the newest BlazBlue but that series is on its last legs. Street Fighter V feels like active theft with all the DLC, and I'm not very interested in MvC. Both Guilty Gear and KoF's latest versions are coming to Steam soon, so I'll probably go with one of those. (Why am I so picky)

    First I played Blazblue Chronophantasma Extend. I was looking forward to playing this one after I bought it during a sale during the semester, but honestly it's not really clicking with me for some reason. I played the tutorials to learn the system and tried maybe half of the characters but absolutely none of the characters really interested me. I'll probably give it a few more chances but I might just pass it up.



    I had the same first impressions of Central Fiction, I'm gonna give it another shot now that I've got a new joystick for my arcade stick

  6. Playing Castle Crashers for the first time was probably the most excited I've ever been from a game. Just downloading it the morning it came out, opening it up, and playing through the first level before school made me so happy.


    Eight years later I never get games at release and I hate fun
