I played a bit of Rainbow Islands last night both the original and the enhanced version you get on the sega saturn. You ever have a game you love but just suck at? Well Rainbow Islands is that game for me. I managed to get to the second to last stage of World 3 but god damn this game has no chill. By world three there are enemies everywhere, most of them just flying around the screen with no clear pattern just waiting to ruin your day. Try to take a second to breath and fuck you now water is filling up the stage, better start moving fatboy. Madness.

I’m going dungeon crawling for Christmas by playing Elminage Original on my 3DS. So far, it’s a very engaging first-person, grid-based dungeon crawler, and I’m wondering if any of you have played it. If so, thoughts?

Playing Recore: Definitive Edition on Game Pass right now. It's so fun! It controls really satisfyingly, and the shooting and platforming both feel great. The game is kinda weirdly immediately quite hard though. That certainly threw me for a loop.

I adore the character in the robots though. The doggo robot is SO CUTE. HE'S SUCH A GOOD BOY I LOVE HIM. There's so much personality put into the little chirps they use to talk and the pantomiming they do to emote. If there were toys of Recore, I would probably buy some because I love these little robots already X3

ReCore was the only game I've played recently that didn't devolve massively into me trying to complete everything. I liked it, but it felt really unfinished, all the way around. Felt really empty, despite plenty of doodad check-boxes. Combat was basically just unfair through most of the game, and the final area erased a lot of the goodwill I still had toward it (and apparently it was even worse in the 'un'-definitive edition). I'm curious about your final thoughts, once you've finished it. I got really jazzed about ReCore when I saw the E3 trailer for it, and then pretty much forgot about it until the end of this year. I guess I was expecting something more, or maybe just something a little different. I really liked swinging around with Seth. I guess I just thought those kind of mechanics were going to factor into the gameplay more.

Lost power last night. Dug out the Vita, which blessedly still held a charge, and played (lol "played") the last three hours or so of Muv-Luv Alternative. So good. Easily the best thing I've played in 2019 and I'd unironically have to place it somewhere on my Top Ten Games Ever list. Weebiness and all.

My daughter is playing Link to the Past and doing surprisingly well. Forgot how often this game dumps health refills on the player: hearts, fairies, jarred fairies, potions..... That said, you ever go insane watching someone play a video game and have to resist every impulse to yank the controller away?? My daughter is forcing Link to cut down every bush and patch of grass in the game. EVERY ONE.

Elminage is awesome. The team that created it made a few Japanese Wizardry games, and it wears its inspiration on its sleeve. It is a grid-based first-person dungeon crawler with an emphasis on equipment. While it doesn’t scale down the difficulty of classic Wizardry games - normal enemies can kill you quickly, enemies you’re not ready for will wreck you - it does add a few player conveniences that streamline the experience a bit (but only a bit...the game’s mechanics remain almost inscrutability complex).

Right now, I’m rolling with a werebeast fighter, a dwarf cleric, a devilish brawler, a dark elf thief, an elf mage, and a fairy alchemist. After 15 hours, our levels are hovering around 13-14, and we’re just entering the just-above-starting level dungeons. The mage and cleric have learned all their spells, but are still 12 levels from a mastery. The cleric is essential, but the mage, while useful with high level magic, spends a lot of rounds defending. I am tempted, in a few more levels to promote her to a Samurai so she can fight, while keeping most of her spells. I might also promote the cleric to Bishop at some point too, but I am dreading losing the ability to heal my party as frequently; so, I may not.
