Medal of Honor: Rising Sun

52. Third Game in Series
Goodbye Deponia

Kind of surprised that I used a point-and-click adventure series for my three games, but here we are.

41. Beat a game with a Metascore below 70

ReCore

Oh man, I both love and hate this game. It has some really fun platforming and such a cool concept, but not only is it rife with with glitches and awful loading times, but the combat is eaither stupid easy or completely unfair and overwhleming. I would like a sequel though, there's a lot here to work with and if they made some improvements it could be a great game.

36. Replay a game from a long time ago

Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers


What It Is: A much shorter and easier game than I remember. Probably because me an my sister aren't throwing each other into the void in the first level.

- Still a fun romp even though it is vastly easier than I remember it to be. There were two or three levels where a bit of hair stood up on the back of my neck remembering how I would almost always die in that area... only to get through in about five minutes with little to no problems. I'd say it didn't even take me an hour my second run (my first run ended in game over at my first attempt at the final boss since I didn't take care enough to get all the 1Ups I could) even though I went to three extra stages. I feel like there was a secret post-game I'm remembering, butr I didn't get because I skipped a stage? I need to check on that.

2. Beat a game released between 1990-1999

Ogre Battle

Been a long time since I've replayed this. Fun, but I forgot how badly the game's difficulty falls apart when you start getting liches and princesses. I'd rather have replayed 64, but the (psx version of) original won out due to portability. Still might end up playing that too, though.

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (RappinHobo's favorite)

interesting and compelling storyline and characters, but doesn't hit the high point of 999 for me, mostly because of unfinished plot threads and some really dragged out portions

13. Beat a WRPG
South Park: The Stick of Truth

46/52

The genre for this has always puzzled me. Is it a JRPG because the gameplay is pretty much identical to Paper Mario which is definitely a JRPG, or is it a WRPG because it wasn't made in Japan?

I feel the same way with Dragon's Dogma where that one is more similar to a WRPG, but was made in Japan.

Grim Dawn


What It Is: A fun Diablo-clone that was free-to-play for Memorial Day weekend.

- Conjurer, L58, beated. Tempted to purchase the game, but may wait wait for Steam Summer Sale. Disappointed that switching difficulty just resets back to the beginning, and that I can't make a new character on the harder difficulty. Really wanted to try out a new type of character, but don't really want to grind through a second time.

FTL: Faster Than Light


- Think the last time I beat the flagship was in 2014 or 2015. I got into a bit of a kick over the last few days and finally did it for a second or third time. Too bad it doesn't really fit many categories.

What It Is: Tales of Sushi Cat. Yum yum, eat em up!

- Thank goodness that bonus dungeon got annoying. Otherwise, I might've finished it up and started a new game plus! I mean, maybe somewhere down the line.

Tales of Berseria started slow and post-ended slow, but the core 70% of the game was excellent and I had a really, really fun time with that crew. Definitely interested in playing again! Probably will get Zestiritria in the summer sale.

I guess this could count as 0, .5, or 1 game, but I'm going with 1 game, and you can't stop me!

I've played through this before, but it was a long time ago. At least 13 years, I want to say? It was before chapter 7 was available. I've only played a bit of 5, so I'm excited to see the rest now that my ~40 hours of necessary rereading are done.
