I've been playing Star Cruiser lately. It's a pretty cool first person RPG-ish game, with rudimentary 3d polygonal graphics in outdoor sections, and raster graphics in dialogue and inside buildings. You fight enemies in real time with lasers and missiles, but the combat isn't that great. The story is pretty interesting, and the game spans across multiple galaxies that you can fly to manually or with a warp. The music is great, and really fits the feel of the game.

 

It was pretty popular in Japan, where it released for the Sharp X68000 and was later ported to the Sega Megadrive. I'm playing an English patch of the Megadrive version, as I was unable to find a patch for the X68000 release. The core game remains the same, although the game runs better on the X68k, and has different/better music.

Most recently been going through Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir. I got it about a year ago, stated it, and then kinda forgot about it. Kinda wished it was really Muramasa: The Semen Blade, even though I have that on Wii. I didn't like it much at first, but now I'm getting into it and it's kinda fun. The story is corny-ass melodramatic Livejournal romance - at least from some of the parts I've played - but I'm enjoying it between the cringes.

I've been bouncing back and fourth between Pirate Warriors 3 on Switch, and trying to finish up Dragon Quest 7. In DQ7 in particular, I've been doing a slew of grinding to master all of the job classes before tackling the final boss and post-game super boss.

 

Meanwhile, over in One Piece land, despite my previous gripes about the game only being in Japanese, it's actually a pretty fun game. I'm glad i'm already familiar with this type of game from having played Hyrule Warriors.

Well, It took awhile, but i finally finished Dragon Quest 7. This was by far the longest one yet, with my final save file reading 254 hours and 50 minutes. And that time includes the main game, post-game content, all DLC, and countless hours grinding out job levels. I really hope the next game isn't gonna have such a grind-heavy job system, cuz that got really brutal at times.

 

Anyway, now that that's finally done, and before i move on to DQ8, I got a bunch of other games i've started and really should finish, like Pirate Warriors 3 or Splatoon 2's Octo Expansion (I beelined to the end to unlock the playable Octoling and skipped over a ton of the levels). I am gonna be leaving on Friday to go on vacation for a week, but I will be taking my Switch with me.

Finished paying Odin Sphere... mostly. I beat it, but there are other endings I haven't seen, and certainly more trophies to unlock. I think I'm pretty much done with this, though. It's kind of a bullshit melodramatic narrative comprised of 5 character stories that intertwine with unclear chronology. Then there's the optional text pieces to read that add even more nonsense. Bah. It wasn't the worst story, but I expected something a lot more interesting. Gameplay wise, it's pretty fun, though. With the five different characters and their unique fighting styles, it's much more varied than Muramasa.

I just downloaded Persona 4 on PS3's online store. It's a PS2 game, so the graphics are kinda shit after being spoiled by Persona 5 as my first Persona game, but I'm still enjoying it... Kinda. Haven't had much time to enjoy it.. My biggest gripe so far is that I can't save as frequently as I want to. I've only had 2 "sittings" with this game, and both times I fell asleep and then woke up around 4-7am with the game running and me laying on my unmade bed in the middle of two saving opportunities. This shit happened to me in my last 3-4 sessions of Odin Sphere, but at least my PS4 had the decency of suspending the game and putting itself in Rest Mode (and my tv shutting itself off) after a couple hours of inactivity. Again, spoiled by technology. :P

Anyway, last night (this morning, lol) I woke up at around 6:25 and tried to get to the next save point. That look longer than I expected, but once I got to save, I powered off everything, brushed my teeth, and then properly went to bed after sunrise. :P

According to my save file, I have 6 hours and 56 minutes logged into Persona 4. Actual play time? Probably just 2 hours, lol. I've only gotten as far as the very first boss, which sounds decently far, but it's actually only the second ("real") battle in the game, which still functions as a tutorial. ^__^;

Is there PS save states or cloud saves you can cheese it with? Serious question

No way, lol. The PS3 goes into this retarded regressive PS2 emulator mode when booting PS2 (or PS1) games, kinda like the Wii U does when going into Wii mode, except you don't get PS2/1 system interface; it's just for the the game itself. It even makes you create/mount a virtual PS2 and PS1 memory card at least once (assuming they don't have limited capacity) in order to maintain saves.

This is nothing more than a minor inconvenience because I think it should just save to system memory directly, but it needs causes problems before... Until 2 nights ago. I dunno what the fuck happened, but while trying to save the game, my file went missing and it said there was no memory card detected. I thought I'd have to exit the game in order fix the problem, but that means I'd lose potentially all of my progress in the entire game. I kept trying to save and exiting the entire menu, and then finally it rediscovered my save file and virtual memory card.

So yeah, absolutely no high-tech save state shit to enhance the experience. ^__^;
