So, with a new Xenoblade out today you might think I would be playing that?

Nope, I now have Chrono Trigger (DS version), a game I've wanted to play for years but wasn't something you see sold second hand a lot.

I may still yet start Xenoblade 2 over the weekend though.

chrono trigger ds is a great port, the bonus content is worth doing too if you 100% the base game (worth doing imo) but stay away from arena of the ages. still imo the best jrpg

Started Hey! Pikmin a few days ago. While its not as great as the console versions, obviously, its still a charming little game in its own right.

Made it to the desolate future in Chrono Trigger and just come out of Arris Dome having learned of Lavos and set up the main character arcs of the game. Party is about Level 11 apart from Marie who is Level 10.

Also started Xenoblade 2 although I'm still in the Guild at the beginning of the game. Already at level 4.

Watched the starting portion of the game on Chris Scullions Youtube channel and it looked fantastic, can't wait to play it already but I'm going to try and get Mario Odyssey and Pokémon Ultra Moon main story finished, then I'll still have Skyrim and Zelda to be playing as well.

Anyway still Skyrim for me, just can't get enough of it.

I was on enrage for a couple weeks because every clear party I joined couldn't get past the dragon until I did it first pull with what eventually became my group. But those few weeks almost got me to call it on raids. It wasn't a fun time.

At least we're getting a live letter in 2 weeks and get to go through a harder raid tier in probably January sometime.
yeah my goal is to clear o4s before the next raid tier comes out

cleared o3s last night, with a bunch of people i befriended on PF in an earlier unsuccessful attempt, then cleared it again tonight with a group of friends to get somebody in that group their clear. we're hopefully gonna start practicing o4s tomorrow

My gaming time is split neatly between LA Noire on the old Switch and Pokémon Ultra Moon on the New Nintendo 3DS. The former is enjoyable when I'm not driving (dull) and the latter is painfully stressful thanks to my dire attempt at a Nuzlocke. :( I'm down to a Lv. 20 Herdier and am on the second island. :oops:

You're really going to enjoy the third island then. Especially with a random trainer with a Beware that can one-shot your first 'mon with a move called First Impressions.
As I said elsewhere, I'm liking the improved challenge with it, but it can be a bit much at times.

Finished the first chapter of Xenoblade 2, did not expect Rex to be backstabbed by one of his party members and killed early on.
Also, the battle music in this game is awesome, arguably rivals the battle music in the originals:



This one plays fairly early on when you get into battles and replaces the usual theme and it's awesome.

Here's the final video from my first Cities Skylines city, not long after i made this, the game crashed when saving and my save was corrupted. :cry: :cry: :cry:



Been concentrating on AC: Origins since, as i can't yet bring myself to starting all over again.

Been going through the first chapter of Xenoblade 2 and it's fantastic, it feels much like the first one rather than X which I wasn't that keen on.

Also been going through Rhythm Paradise Mega mix as well and I was quite surprised it's got a story mode and while it isn't nothing special its a nice inclusion. The game has both Japanese and English soundtracks which is awesome and returning mini games also seem to have new music to them.

Escaped the future in Chrono Trigger and brought the party back to the present, arriving back at the first continent. Party is around Levels 14 and 15.

Normally I tend to leave the character names as default in RPGs (aside from Pokemon) but in this case I decided to rename Robo as "Rick" since his theme song sounds too similar to this:

Probably will keep him on the final party depending on how useful I find him long term.

EDIT: Now Level 19 having just got the broken Masamune. Had a close call in the boss battle before that though, toughest battle so far.

I have quite a few games on the go at the moment (10+) but I have just started ghost recon wildlands, I don't know why I missed it when it was released but I noticed it on the Xbox One X enhanced list so thought I would give it a go

As you might expect, the Nuzlocke is now over. :( I've kind of ground to a halt with the game - it's not really inspiring me to carry on.

Finally loaded something up that's not called Skyrim....loaded up Pokémon Ultra Moon to continue on with the second island where I'm about to do the 2nd trial, just trying to catch a decent natured female Salazzle that I may or may not use on my team, unsure at the moment.

I have not played very much of the game yet and have only just arrived in Alexandria so not had the time to explore yet, I wasn't keen of the game at first but the more I have played the more I like it, I still think I prefer syndicate though

Bloodborneing it up, in Old Yharnam now and trying to kill the Bloodstarved Beast to get the Chalice. Tried taking on the guy at the top of the tower and got my angel delight thoroughly kicked so I'm probably going to leave him till later. Really feeling the axe, I love the crowd control of the trick form, especially with charged R2 which basically just straight-up murders everything in its path. Trying out the Kirkhammer but not really gelling with it, I like the speed of the sword form but doesn't pack enough of a punch, whereas the hammer is a lot more powerful but I can't get hang of the timings or reach, plus total damage output seems lower than the axe anyway with it being a fair bit slower.

About to take on the Forest Maze in the Stone Age era in Chrono Trigger. Party is around about Level 20 and I've acquired Ayla as a party member, temporarily replacing Rick/Robo in the party while she's required.

Overall I like the game so far, seems to jump into the gameplay very quickly while setting the story up, soundtrack is very good so far, the time travel mechanic and I like how it has the battles on the map screen rather than cutting to a seperate screen for the fights. I don't think I've played enough of it yet though to consider it as a contender for top 10 games I've played and by this stage in Final Fantasy VI I found the plot overall more interesting, but maybe that will change as I play more.

My girlfriend let me have my Xmas present early, so I'm gorging on Breath of the Wild.

I just got off the plateau, and spent a good ten minutes painstakingly picking off a horde of blue and black bokoblins with arrows and bombs. I got down to three black ones with slivers of health, only to experience my first red moon.

Anyway long story short I died.

Reached Zeal in Chrono Trigger, party is between levels 27 and 30.

Yeah, I've done quite a lot and a lot of the content since Forest Maze has been so good. Yet to get a single Game Over so far though that may just be my experience with RPGs now and being a bit more tactical in the process. Magus went down through spamming the move Triple Attack and although I didn't have that move for bosses in the Tyranno Lair, the strategies for the most part have been pretty easy to figure out.

In fact, as I type this the game is on with Corridors of Time playing on loop.
