Tetris: The Grand Master 3 - Terror Instinct

It's even more terrifying to actually play especially when you've barely picked up Tetris during the last several years of your life
You poor soul.  That game's nuts as HECK.

Shovel Knight was 5 hours of genuine fun. I think maybe the bosses could've been a bit rougher as I managed to beat many using brute force and winning with 1-3 hits left, but so much of it was a joy with unique and fun gimmicks, memorable characters, and solid gameplay throughout.

It's Super Cheesio Brothers in Bravely Default now! The keystone stuff was a huge shock. I'm kinda miffed because considering the run up to this point, everything before this was the vaguely difficult but fair route. You were rewarded for having a diverse party setup that synergized well. Maybe you wiped once or twice to a boss, but changing your tactics a bit and a touch of prep saved the day. Now? Go go gadget utsusemi.

Going to echo JQ here. What drove you to play TGM3, of all things? I know people went out and acquired it (and the first one) after what happened near the start of the year, so it's not that surprising if that's the reason. But yeah, good luck to you~ XD

As for me, haven't been playing that much, in all fairness. Pokemon OR has been it for now, as I'm very behind. I've got a lot to work through on Steam, though~

AGDQ drove me to hunt it down but I've always been somewhat curious.

That aside when it comes to 'infinite' style puzzle games I'm always fond of those that will really push the player and have huge room for skill as opposed to luck (contrast Lumines, Tetris, Puzzle League against, say, Bejeweled).

that said I passed my Rank 6 qualification exam on stream.  Even if rank 6 is still trash by TGM standards.

Bloodborne acquired! Time to die over, and over, and over...

Edit: Ok, yeah. I was joking a lot less when I said that than I thought I was. The second boss has murdered me to the point where I flipped off the screen in an annoyed celebration after I finally beat it.

Super Mario 64 is on the WiiU VC!  It's still so much fun.  I've already got 26 stars and I haven't even entered the basement yet.  I've also collected 4 100 coin stars.  The only stage I haven't done it on is Jolly Roger Bay.  That beat my old record by 3.  I only ever did it on Whomp's Fortress once.  I don't remember fighting with the camera this much when I was little though.  I think I've just been spoiled by better camera controls though.

Mega Man: The Power Battle, 1cc on all three courses, Buster only (with Protoman). A short and easy game, just choose the harder Robot Masters first. Most bosses have an easy pattern you can get into, but some can attack randomly and give more problems than they're worth.

You can do it.

Until the game decide you can't, then you have to beat it hard until it says "Okay, screw you, I'm putting more than max gravity."

Oh boy, I've got a bunch of games going that I really need to finish. I'm currently on the last chapter of Fire Emblem: Awakening, the last fight(i think) in Devil Survivor: Overclocked, the second to last boss in Digital Devil Saga, I'm somewhere near the end of Final Fantasy X, I think I've massed the midway point of Shin Megami Tensei IV. And if that wasn't enough, I'm also playing Nosgoth, Payday 2 and a bunch of other games whenever I feel like it.

I managed to have a kinda breaking run in BoI

Swallowed Penny + Humbling Bundle + Contract from Below + Blood Bank + 3 Roll Die room = this.

Also I have PHD; Bottle of Pills and 48 Hour Energy in the rotation. Yeah.

The run ended with me having 11 red HP; the Wafer; a Full HP Pill; and on the Chest I got Cricket's Body; Cricket's Head and Tech .5 which turned my damage from 'awful but rapid-fire and durable' to 'omg i am a touhou boss'.

Well, I technically broke level 500 today in TGM3.  Thanks to playing 1-200 near flawlessly I ended up getting sufficient section times on each of those spreads, which means the game internally jumped over another 100 levels, and... yeah.

It scared me that I'm getting to the point where I can push the game fast enough on early segments to actually do that.  Not always, mind you, but I can.  The only problem is that once the game really starts pushing I have to basically go JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL and try to hold on as best I can, and while I'm getting better, near instant/instant gravity can cause Things to happen that can make a huge mess >:

Hello, Rosenkreuzstilette. Goodbye, productivity.

...Well, not really. Completed it casually in two days, with continues and cross tanks. At least I didn't use any additional weapons except bombs for breaking blocks. ...Except for refights, even with weapons it's challenge enough already. Still, I'm interested enough to try playing through different levels now and again in the future to get better. Funny, since I'm actually not interested in original Mega Man and other games like it, but this one plays nicely, and its aesthetics make it pleasant to replay the stages.

I've been playing a ton of Rozenkreuzstilette as well. I actually started speedrunning it recently and I'm having a blast! My current goal for now is to beat the game in under 40 mins.

I've also been playing Etrian Odyssey Untold. I'm on my second classic mode playthrough since story mode wasn't really my cup of tea(I quit in the second stratum). I have a party consisting of Protector/Ronin/Dark Hunter/Troubadour/Alchemist and it's been working amazingly so far. I don't have any revive skills though so I'll have to rely on nectars. I could try to get medic's revive skill on a grimoire, but it's so luck based I don't think it's worth my time.

I started playing The Witch and the Hundred Knight.  So Marisa and Etna apparently had a baby.  But no seriously, the main character is a witch who solves her problems by catching them on fire and swearing a lot.  How have I not played this sooner?  The gameplay is fun, you play as the Hundred Knight and it's rouge-type dungeon crawling.  And I like that you make combos by using five different weapons at the same time.

RANK UP

Yes, I fell out at 241; that's because with the way internal levels work that was actually 441.  Most importantly getting those speedups, while deadly, also enhances your grade (While being too slow reduces it), so yeah, I just... have to learn to play with it.

blugh killing L99 Ancient Dragons in Hyperdevotion is murder - the only reasonable way I've found so far is to burn their MP off before attacking in earnest - and even then, if you're not already near the level cap with a ton of VIT or anti-dragon equipment, you get insta-gibbed.

Also, where are these damn Skeleton Clones for the trophy in Stealth Inc. 2? I presume it's in a part of the map I haven't uncovered yet, given I don't have the 100% map completion trophy yet, but the problem is that it's very well hidden - there are no further pathways on my map, so I have to scout every room in the game to find something I haven't already done.

Recently beat Super Robot Wars Z3.2.

Pretty fun game for the most part. Only complaints are some of the animations being shorter and worse than the Z2 games, characters like Athrun and Luna being summon attacks, and the lack of good secrets like Hi-Nu and Nightingale.

Beat Demon's Souls as Royalty class. Was Online the entire playthrough, so it was pretty much White and Pure White tendency.


I started a new character. Temple Knight, so I can't just cheese things with Soul Arrow and MP Regen early on. I do have some casts of heals to help early game, but it's still a bit more challenging due to having to melee. I'm planning to try for the platinum trophy in this run, so I'm going to be using duping to get the spells and equipment as well as following a guide to get the world/character tendency events, but I'm going to not exploit it for massive levels since I want to see how it plays out as a character that has to get close most of the time. Obviously this run will need to be offline most of the time to manipulate World Tendency, though I started online so I'd start one away from Pure White. Beat tutorial vanguard in this run, so I was able to see the death after and grab some more stuff. I already kind of screwed things up because I did the PWWT event in 1-1 after clearing it but forgot about the other one where the dragons are gone from the area at PWWT(well, I didn't, but after entering the Nexus after killing the one NPC in the execution ground, WT went down toward Black, so they were back). Should be able to get back to PWWT for world 1, but if not, I can just kill the red and blue dragon and be able to get the stuff.


Pure Black World Tendency sounds interesting, though it'll be a while before I can mess with it.

I am currently playing Monster Hunter Tri.

Lagiacrus is a bitch.

That is all.

(Seriously though, this game is surprisingly simple and yet fun, I've been having a blast playing Long Sword ever since I unlocked it, although underwater combat is shit.

Also Lagiacrus is a bitch.)

Ori and the Blind Forest.
The game is awesome. Visuals are beautifully drawn, music is really nice and platforming is great too. Controls are responsive and overall gameplay is really fluid. The fact that you are basically carrying savestates with you is a huge plus. And you will need them, because the game is really ungorgiving. All in all, i am having buckets of fun.

Been playing the Birth By Sleep Final Mix section of KH 2.5 ReMIX.  Done Terra's and Ventus' stories so far, Ventus first(Proud mode), then Terra(Critical mode).  Both final bosses were hard for me, but Terra's was just OBNOXIOUS.  The only way I could win was about 75% Counter Hammer, 20% Twisted Hours(Counter Hammer filled the style gauge up REALLY fast, 2 counters in short succession were enough to fill it entirely), and like 5% Shotlock(I had the same shot the final boss was using AGAINST me, ironically.  Entirely unintentional).  Anytime I tried to go on the offensive myself I got either pointblank machinegunned(almost always instant death) or hit by this really long combo attack that, once you were caught in it, was unblockable since you didn't get any breather long enough to enter your Block frames(did like 85% of my max HP if I got hit by the whole thing, though it was more like 90%+ at first but I took so long to beat him that Exp. Walker leveled me up enough to gain a Defense Up, haha.).

Re: Ventus' final boss though, I REALLY liked how they did that at the end, it was really thematically satisfying.

Now for Aqua's story.  Not sure if I wanna go Critical again or if I'll stick to Proud mode...

[...]The only way I could win was about 75% Counter Hammer[...]

That's actually how you're supposed to beat him. AFAIK, it's supposed to symbolize the fact that Terra's recklessness was ultimately what caused everything that happened in his story, so since the final boss is basically the ultimate result of said recklessness, you're supposed to beat him using patience and precision by countering everything he does instead of charging forward.

I suppose that explains why I had such a hard time,and it makes sense.  I'm often quite reckless and 'no caution, offense only, final destination' like Terra in action-type games which is probably why I dont do as well as my overall ability would potentially enable.  Suppose I should keep this lesson in mind, huh?  Sucks what happenes to him even after all that though but well, actions have consequences whether you have learned or not from them already.

Damn, I only did the entire game + the final episode on standard.

Both final bosses were hard for me, but Terra's was just OBNOXIOUS.

Ventus's final boss I found you can stunlock a bit before they just auto-counter you, so I just did that until finish with Sonic Blade. Terra's final boss I will agree with being the hardest. I think it took me about seven tries or something, and it really really forced me to learn how to get good with blocking. (You wouldn't think that you could block those giant meteors, go figure)
