Found another shipwreck that had three treasure chests and a treasure map. Unfortunately, the map brought me to the same location as the previous treasure map. I think maybe it was because this wreck was in the very same biome as the other wreck.

I've been absolutely in looooooove with Bravely Second. I had charged my 3DS on Friday overnight, and got the low battery notification on Saturday evening, meaning that I spent most of my Saturday playing it. Here are some of the things it does that I really appreciate:

-tons of jobs that go beyond standard FF archetypes
-being able to increase or decrease the random encounter rate (in conjunction with being able to chain battles for extra experience)
-being able to speed up combat animations
-just-the-right-amount-of-chibi low-poly character models
-rock solid localization and VO
-great feeling of nostalgia and jRPG tropes while being self-aware

It's really disappointing that so much of the game is a retread of the first -- I'm exploring some of the same dungeons and the exact same world map as the first game.

I'm also making progress in Breath of the Wild; I've conquered 3 of the Divine Beasts, and I have acquired

. I just passed 60 shrines.

You guys, this game is really addictive.

I never played any Pokemon games. Always meant to, somehow never owned them, and they never came to PC. But this is all the "capture and assemble a team of monsters" crack of Pokemon, combined with the "Vast layers of equipment upgrading/enchanting and creature stat boosting" of Disgaea. You could play forever.

The game doesn't even have an endpoint, there's just a series of tutorial quests that take you up through making your first Nether (elite) creature. After that, it's just open for your own goals, such as trying to survive 100 floors deep, or catching 1 of every monster, or whatever.

I am finding it very addictive -- there are tons of creatures and they all have their own special abilities, so putting together a team with synergies gives you a lot of depth to play with. Add in the ability to enchant equipment, and you can try to use one creature to boost the attack of your multistrike creature, or give reflecting damage to your creature that taunts the enemy, etc., etc.

The game is super low-fi, looking like a Gameboy Color game, but damn if it isn't compelling for those who like that sort of thing. (Although if my write-up has interested you as well, keep in mind that it's pretty much universally accepted that the sequel is even better. And apparently Siralim 3 is going to be better yet, and is already in Steam Early Access.

I wanted to play a flight sim... turned out that I didn't really had anyone installed, so instead I began looking at my shame list: Installed games that I haven't played yet.

One was the Russian game Aurora Night, which is an educational game about constellations. It is a very beautiful game with a nice, peaceful tune.

I decided that I would complete the game, so I began working my way through the constellations: First with guidelines, then without. To complete the game (and thereby get all achievements), you need to complete each constellation three times.

It's quite nice and beaufitul, I like it - but it is not a game that can be played over and over again

So far I haven't had much luck with the Air Conflict games: Air Conflicts: Vietnam refused to load (I may try again some time) and Air Conflicts: Secret Wars kept crashing short after the first part of the first mission was completed... So to be honest I did not have much hope when it came to Pacific Carriers - but not only did it load, it also operated in-flight for an hour without any issues.

Seems like I will be playing some Pacific theatre flight for a little bit of time... I might even try to do all side missions as well as the main missions.

It plays pretty well, just my Saitek Cyborg Evo seems a little sloppy; I've set the sensitivity down a tad to see it will help in the steering.

Landing a Wildcat on a carrier is not an easy task!

-----

Fiddled a bit with the controls and ended up playing Joystick (Arcade) and my plane is much more stable - however I can't use rudder movement in this mode.

I have however, completed the US Navy campaign - and will be off to the Japanese Navy Campaign... tomorrow or next week... Whichever games I play tomorrow will be the last playing of the week: Friday morning I am going to a big medieval festival, so won't be any gaming going on for me in that time!

Paper Mario: Sticker Star -- Working through Level 5, which is a jungle area. What has been interesting about this Level is that we have continued the forced scrolling aspect from the previous one, as a couple of the stages have had Mario riding a raft down a river and dodging enemies and whatnot. So far this has been pretty straightforward and pretty easy going, about to start the Boss stage. After that, Level 6 looks to be the final one for the game, so almost to the home stretch here.

Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition -- Continuing to play through as Dee Jay in an effort to sharpen my skills. Had a long series of bouts with E. Honda in a battle of old school guys who use charge specials. (Honda's command Sumo Throw is tough to avoid because my crouching MK sweep puts me in range.) I am perpetually impressed at how good this game looks on the 2DS, and how fast it plays.

Continuing my long (for me) MOO2 binge. I started playing again over a week ago, and I've been playing continuously since then. I won a game with each race on Easy, and now I'm trying it on Average. So far I've managed to win with the Alkaris and Darloks, but the Bulrathis are a different story. I think I've had to abort about five Bulrathi games, and I just started another one this morning.

My party is around level 16, and I'm in Chapter 2 (of how many, I don't know).

The only other time I played this was 4 months ago, but it was something to continue while I had a browser window open to kinda-sorta watch Summerslam yesterday.

Yep, resuming another FF game. I just did the Iifa Tree section. Oddly enough it seems "Dagger" is the only character I renamed. I usually rename everyone. Well, I guess I can't say for sure yet because only 4 ppl in the party.

Still playing Valkyria Chronicles. After finally mastering level 7 last week, I'm now in chapter 13. Another week or two and I should be through. The unique mix of elements is growing on me although I would prefer shorter tactical battles and a larger share of storytelling. The alternate reality created here is fascinating. While firmly based on WWII Europe, the exaggerated stereotypes drawn from history and the addition of fantasy elements like the Valkyrur breathe life into the quirky markedly Japanese artistic vision.

Once I'm done with this, I have to take a longer break from playing Japanese games. My partner is already making fun of me playing Alicia, fighting battles in her miniskirt and red hood and if I continue doing this much longer, I'll consider myself a dirty old man.

My goal is to finish this game, this week!

I'm sooo close - one ending left. I spent a half hour yesterday trying to get the Strategist, and I yet again failed.

So I need to find a new approach.

I know the stats I need, and I've been hitting them - but I still end up getting other endings instead. So perhaps I have to work less and adventure more? But not adventure too much, or I run the risk of getting those endings. Hmm... it is a tricky situation.

I'm sooo ready to move on from this to one of the other games I want to play!

Just read a full strategy guide someone made for the Strategist - turns out I'm not the only one having trouble getting the ending. And, it turns out I am on the right track with thinking that you don't want to work too much.

More of this, as usual. What wasn't so usual was that I got my 150 straight days log in reward this weekend, which included a new sigal, a exellus adapter, and a three day credit gain boost!

One million credits. I has them.

At least until the next time Barro blows into the system.

*Update*

Baro did arrive, and I was like Rodney in the Pro Shop

I picked this up cheap three or so years ago when Target Canada went out of business and sold their stuff cheap, and it's collected dust since then. I put it on my Challenge list in an attempt to clear out my backlog. It's charming. I love the little worlds, twisting around in three dimensions, each feeling small and self-contained and very interesting. But I'm not 100% sure I'll finish it - it's not really my kind of game in the long run, I'm at nine challenge games beaten anyways, and am currently also playing The Witcher 3 (also on my challenge list).

And it's awesome. So good. I'm just riding around, killing guys with my sword. The more I play the game, the more I think this is a world in which pretty much everyone deserves the business end of a sword, really. Maybe even Geralt sometimes, although I try to make him someone who's doing his best in a bad situation. There's not a lot of good people here. I gave some food to some kids - they seemed okay, I guess. But otherwise, I think the game's message might be that people are the real monsters. Just a vibe I'm picking up on. Mechanically the game is good but not amazing, but it's really the gritty, fleshed-out setting that makes the game so good. The world is a joy to inhabit. The inventory limits continue to annoy me, though.

And of course Siralim 2, where I'm getting monsters and making eggs to get more monsters and making artifacts and befriending gods and cooking food and doing rituals to help me do those things better... Good times. I've got over 100 deity points, so I need to figure out what to spend them on (so many choices!). I just wish it wasn't so clunky.

I'm back on my BS (and feeling really sorry that Shenzhen isn't getting my attention). I got two more levels finished cheaply. I'll be honest, the trick to Purified Gold wasn't figuring out how to do it, it was figuring out how not to get bored before finishing my solution (it helped to be able to copy instructions).

I THINK it is also absolutely the minimum cost but I have to think to see if there's anything I'm missing that might let me save a little. I don't think so though, but sometimes i'm just not as clever as other people are with these games.

About 15 hours in, there are some hilarious moments in this.

I really like the different character powers and the use of a battle grid. I'm now an Assassin. The bleed effect and daggers are handy. Though I miss causing enemies to barf from my fart bombs. laugh

Played through some Grand Prix as General Winter and Amy, and got two stars on a couple of traffic challenges in the World Tour that I had previously only gotten one star.

I'm really unmotivated to game. I played the first few chapters of this (I've played it before).

Back shooting aliens! I do like this game a lot - and I will probably be playing it on and off for the rest of the month: I am almost too lazy to pack away the Atari 800XL!

At the moment I am playing with a Wico Command Control Red Ball - and this gives a really nice arcade feeling! I don't even think I will change my joystick while playing this

Still only get to Wave 5 as the maximum, and only get around 10,000 points (today ended at 11,580 - not enough to beat my own high score).

I got farther in this game, playing the Android release.

I am now at one of the most exciting parts of the game, where you go through the Ocean Palace, which has some of my favorite videogame music, and then do some exciting stuff and see the game open up for various side quests.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Now that Crono is dead and the magical kingdom is utterly destroyed, I now get to decide whether to spare Magus or let Frog have his revenge.


I really like this game. It's like 'Back to the Future' meets various archetypal hero stories and tales.

I'm up to level 25. I almost feel like I'm doing too many side quests, since the main story is still around level 14 or 15 as of the quest "Into the Borderlands."
