Someone had a broken Joycon and put in a request alongside their repair order for Nintendo support to send back pictures of their favourite animals. And so they did.

Holy shit you guys. I missed a chest in the first building you start in. I've been walking around with no pants on this whole time

Galaxy is excellent, but Odyssey surpassed it for me. I think getting rid of the lives system was a good idea.

I do not actually prefer the open world approach in Odyssey. I love the Galaxy/3D World approach where they have a small world that I explore in a time limit and everything is so curated and immaculate. I think to some of the worlds in Odyssey and think some of them are not as interesting.

Just started chapter 2, and it's already obvious who Adelle's sister is. Really liking the class system though! I had Gloria as a white/black mage the whole game, but now I have her as a berserker... the ability to healing HP/MP on physical strikes (which she gained from Black/White mage) is great. I am training Gloria in White Mage to do the same. 

 

I want to like the thief and gambler class, but the steal rates are really low and the gambler, it costs money (which I accidentally spent all mine) for a lot of the skills + you might not get JP at the end of battle (which sucks, because I want the level 10 ability to get rare items).

I was wondering what the benefit of mastering a class was. Does the class need to be equipped to get these rare items? And when do said rare items come into play? (I already mastered Black Mage with Elvis)

The rare item drops actually come from the gambler ability, where there's like a 10% chance of them dropping I think? But the point to mastering a class, you get a second passive ability with them.

I have Elvis mastered Black Mage (prevents all attack spells from being nullified or absorbed, but doesn't stop damage debuff or reflect.), Gloria mastered White Mage (all healing spells benefit all party members), and Adelle has mastered Vanguard physical attack power and crit chance are raised based on how likely the user is to be targeted). I've not mastered any classes on Seth yet, but got him high on Freelancer, Monk, and Beastmaster. I'm thinking of going back to freelancer, just to get the second JP up ability. But the class is just so boring and meh.

I think Galaxy has the finest levels of the 3D Marios. 64 is definitely dated, I loved it at the time but it suffers from some problems that by the time Galaxy came around got corrected. Odyssey is a blast and so much fun to return to from time time just to collect more. But it does suffer from some camera problems.

Galaxy is a fantastic game. I just really really wish Nintendo included Galaxy 2 in 3D All Stars. I bought the game anyway, but dammit that's the one I wanted the most! I already own Sunshine 3 times at this point as well!

I think Galaxy 2 is probably the greatest 3D platformer ever made, just an absolute masterpiece of level design married perfectly with controls and gameplay mechanics. Everything that Mario titles are great for, but just done to perfection.

My simple test of if a game is well made or not is if, when you're doing badly, you blame yourself or the game. If you're blaming the game - the camera's in the wrong place, the controls are too clunky or unresponsive, the level design is unclear, or there's something just cheap like an enemy you don't see until the last second - it's poorly made, but if every time you fuck up you know that it's on you, you know what you should be doing to achieve, and you're happy to keep going until you manage it rather than getting frustrated, then it's well made. Galaxy and Galaxy 2 nail that probably better than anything I've ever played.

Any of you Mafia/Werewolf types look into Gnosia yet? It's supposed to be a perfect implementation of a single player version of a deduction games and has me interested.

I've never heard of it, but that sounds fascinating!

It's on my wishlist for sure. Something of a mix of Danganronpa and Among Us is how it's being talked about, all presented in a visual novel. You work your way through the games "loops" and each time they could introduce new roles, you could be the Gnosia that is killing people off, you could be helping it, other people could be deciding to help it, there might be multipel Gnosia.... it's sound pretty neat and dynamic.

Bravely Default 2 update! (Which, sadly, I've been putting all my gaming time into. Sorry new Mario game)

Switched Seth back to Freelancer so I can get that JP Up and Up ability. Elvis managed to get to level 9 freelancer just by the JP orbs, so he got the JP Up ability, switched him Beastmaster (which I just learned, has the same 'pool' of monsters captured from previous teammates!). Gloria is still a Berserker and messing things up. Adelle hit level 9 (or 10?) to get drain attack, and is now also a berserker.

I think my next boss fight I'm gonna try and keep the classes as they are, to get the JP. I REALLY like using Vanguard in boss fights to tank hits, but it's already maxed out.

Been playing a lot of Mario Kart ATM online. Forgotten how much I enjoyed it and got into it whether it's stealing positions from people or getting screwed over by a red she'll near the finish and 5 people overtake you.

I might have done too much grinding. Entering a new area and enemies flee

I don't progress until all the enemies in the outside vicinity fear me.

Have you beat any of the overworld monster bosses? The super powered ones? I've beat the one on the beach, snake in the hidden desert and a mushroom in the forest. 

Also, shield master is SUCH a good class.

I believe I've only beat the one that's like a pink flowery type that's on a cliff near the first town. I have a feeling I could beat a couple of others I've run into but haven't wanted to invest the time it would take.

I must have missed that one!

And I am now on chapter 3. 30 hours in. Still loving this game.

I've got Gnosia.

About 120 loops in and still unlocking bits of story.

Some loops won't see anything happen outside of the typical trials and those can become very generic.

There's also a bit of an RPG element where you get XP at the end of a loop depending on how well you did. Then you can spend it on stats like charisma or logic that helps in various ways during the trials.

I don't think it's as good as Danganronpa but it's certainly worth playing if it sounds like your sort of game.

I don't like buying games without reading reviews, but I saw a decent pre-order discount on Monster Hunter Rise. That has to be a pretty safe bet to at least be a decent game, surely?
