Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Been playing almost every spare time I've had since the 30th. Want to elaborate in the topic soon, but am really enjoying this and so deserving of the Best Strategy Game at the Game Awards. There a few things I don't like but will get into later. Beat Chapter 7 which was the most fun map to do so far. Always love it with more than two sides attacking each other. Lost 3 units, even my Byleth got taken out by Ingrid straight away. Should've known how offensive she was from the paralogue moments before. Now finally got 2 Battle activity points and about to do two before Chapter 8 map.

Started this at the weekend after getting the Platinum trophy for Spider-Man, and as I said in the thread, so far I've really enjoyed it despite the frame rate troubles it (understandably) has.

Finished the story yesterday, and I have to say the ending is very anticlimactic. The game overall is great, even with the technical issues it can suffer from (which is mostly because the environments are so destructible which gets hard to render smoothly), I just wish the events leading to the ending were different to what they were.

Just finished up the platinum for the game (#142). I enjoyed getting to play this game again, but I do not agree with how drastically Square Enix inceased enemy stats in the game to make it "balanced." For one thing, the game is 20-something years old, there's absolutely no reason to go and try to fix it now. Second, the increase was far too drastic (some enemies got as much as a 200% HP buff). They also seemed to have really increased the encounter rate, and especially the chances of enemies ambushing you. Add it all up together, and you can find yourself getting ambushed and wiped out before your characters are out of the stun status from the ambush. I just have to scratch my head on why they thought trying to fix this game NOW was a good idea, and the "fix" they did ended up just making the game more of a pain in the ass than anything. The encounter rate increase is especially brutal with how much backtracking the game forces you to do and no fast travel outside of being able to go between port towns via ship. In the end I would stick to the PSP version if I ever wanted to play this game again, but I'm glad I did this one just to add another SO platinum to my collection -- Just need that PS4 port of SO2 now and I'll be able to have the platinum of every Star Ocean game.

Azur Lane (Android)

Latest event ended so now I'm just back to the daily grind. Working on goals towards another one of the research girls. Slowly progressing, but getting their faster than I did with Ibuki thankfully. Getting really annoyed with the PvP in this game. You don't actually fight against another player, but your team (AI controlled) fights against another player's team (also AI controlled). I've lost several fights lately against weaker teams just because RNG decided that none of my girl's skills activate (Nagato has been really bad for me in this regard), while my opponent's team seems to get each and every one of their skill activations every time. It's getting really, really irritating. They need to change the PvP so that either all skills are inactive for it, so it's purely based on fleet power or they need to make it so all skills have 100% activation so there is no getting screwed by RNG. Or make it so that you can control your own fleet during PvP so you can aim your attacks/dodge. I don't know how many times I've seen it where the match starts and both vanguards fire all of their torpedoes, and my girls go and facetank each of my opponent's, and they fire their torpedoes at the bottom of the battlefield so they end up completely missing the enemy vanguard.

Just irritating when I should win these matches but lose because of things I can't control.

Stardew Valley on my iPad. This game I just bought today and I am already having a blast playing it. The game only cost me $7.99 and surprisingly there are no in-app purchases. Plus it is a fairly small amount of memory. I had originally thought that it might be difficult to move my character around the screen. But you simply point on the screen where you want the guy to move and he quickly runs over to the spot.

@Raz How is tilling soil and planting things? That's the stuff I imagine can get tedious, especially early in the game when you have really expendable Energy.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD
I forgot I got this game in November when it got super discounted to $26 (discount was around the time it launched) so I started it up and am in World 7 already. I thought the "jump" mechanic would be pretty offputting (I've only played SMB2) but I find myself accidentally using it when I try to course-correct myself, which I never thought I'd do but when you panic, you push buttons, right? XD The game gets SO brutally tough though, as expected. One of the last courses I did was one where you absolutely need to keep yourself in a straight line the entire time to the goal, but the start has literal roadbumps in it to throw you off, in addition to needing to jump onto a very narrow piece of land onto the next piece of very narrow land over a giant gap onto a super steep narrow land piece to the goal. Took me.... at least 30-45 minutes to do.
I'm not a big fan of the bosses either. Some are okay, but others I tend to find they have inconsistent movement/placement patterns that cost you a life.

@ShiraNoMai It actually is fun to me. It doesn’t really get tedious. If you give it a chance and if you like sim games then you grow to get used to it.

Oh, no, I love Stardew Valley; it's one of my favorite games. I just meant using the touch inputs to do those actions in particular I would probably find tedious considering how many times I might mess up an input and miss a space and expend unnecessary energy doing that missed input XD

I should really go and catch Zacian in my Sword playthrough. I'm wondering if I could Critical Capture him like I did the Pokemon Y legendary ROFL

I really need to get back into Shield, still haven't done anything since beating Marnie and Hopp. Goes for other games, but of course my attention has been elsewhere.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Played nothing but this. Completed Crimson Flower route. Should've had more chapters though as I know the others go up to 22/23 (or was it 21/22?) and not simply 18. Need to play the others to know what they entail, although already spoiled myself on a certain something. XD
