    The Boneyard - N4A Chat Thread, October 2018

    I enjoyed FoMT and AWL. I also remembering really enjoying Harvest Moon DS... Atleast until after 40 hours when I discovered you need to acquire 60 or something sprites in order to marry someone. I played some of Rune Factory 4 last year, but didn't get very far. I might pop it in soon. I associate Harvest Moon & Rune Factory as nice autumn games.

    How are all of your Switches doing a year later?

    No hardware issues to speak of for my Switch. I occasionally play it for Sonic Mania. I've only invested some considerate time into games like Disgaea 5 and Super Mario Odyssey. It still hasn't replaced the 3DS for me, and there's no chance of that happening until Animal Crossing and Gen VIII Pokemon hit.

    Finding an affordable, simple, and reliable wireless mouse & keyboard combo shouldn't be so difficult. Logitech has something affordable and simple like the MK235 and 270, but there's countless reports of lag and it no longer working months later. And once you move past the $60 range you're finding weird ergonomic keyboards and right-hand exclusive mouses with 8-buttons. I remember having the MK520 and it being really solid until I messed it up. But it's still $60 after 8 years. I guess there hasn't been much change in the realm of wireless keyboard and mouse combos in that time.

    I haven't watched through any anime since 2015, and even then it was the original FMA series. I'm terrible at keeping up with recent media. I had this thought today when I realized the only game I've bought that's released this year is Dragon Quest XI. And I only plan on picking up Smash Ultimate for the remainder of it. January is looking killer, though, with three games that I want.

    Baten Kaitos III could have happened

    I remember there being rumors of a Baten Kaitos III on the DS a long time ago. I guess that became Xenosaga I & II. Not sure what to say for Baten Kaitos in this day and age. I don't think it would be worth the cost of porting these games over in HD, definitely with the pre-rendered backgrounds that would be challenge to bring over. And with how awkward the voicing and presentation is in these 60-hour games, it would be a difficult to sell a collection to modern consumers.

    Playing Dragon Quest is reminding me how much I like games with monster-raising. I've had Monster Hunter Stories in my backlog for a while now. How does it fare against Pokemon and Dragon Quest Monsters?

    Whatcha playing? General Edition!

    Not sure if I want to keep playing Ever Oasis. It's not very interesting, both in gameplay and story. I'm about 10 hours in, so about 50% done with the main story. It's not a big investment, but time is tight these days, and there's other games I could imagine having more fun playing. In other news, I've been playing Dragon Quest XI. I'm playing on the Draconian mode with stronger monsters, which means a lot of grinding. But I love it, the game is an absolute delight to play.

    Well, damn. I opened up the cartridge for Dragon Warrior III to find that the entire circuit board is water damaged. Already reached out for a refund and plan on returning it this week. Looks like I'll need to try my luck with the $80 copies floating around. Lesson learned: don't cheap out on buying retro games.

    This doesn't even include my copy of Dragon Warrior III and Dragon Warrior Monsters for the Gameboy!

    I am complete. Dragon Warrior III arrived today. The cartridge is pretty dirty, and the save battery is busted. So I'll be making it a point to fix that soon.

    If you're still playing on an original 3DS, you owe it to yourself to grab a New 2DS. The original 3DS looks nice, but it's d-pad is the worst I've ever used. I still have a New 3DS battery lying around that I ordered from Nintendo's online store. I keep holding off on switching out the battery, though. Edit: Currently there's a sale for the SNES Edition New 3DS XL for $150: https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-New-3DS-XL-Super-Mario/dp/B076KRDRQG?th=1

    I have IV for the DS. I like the idea of having the Zenithian trilogy on one console, and the Erdrick trilogy on the NES. Picked up XI today, probably won't have time to crack into it until tomorrow.

    Thinking I may grab Dragon Warrior III for the NES in the near future. $60+ for what is the obsolete version of the game seems silly, but I like the idea of having the first three games on the NES, and not playing a version where everything is abbreviated to 4 letters. Edit: Welp, just bought a copy for a little less than $60. Should be here next week.

    I played Persona 4 back in 2012 and stopped at the part where I needed more social skills to talk to Naoto. I have FE# on my shelf from when I bought it for $30 last black friday. I told my girlfriend we'll play it together when we feel like weebing out. Right now I'm waiting on Dragon Quest XI to arrive in the mail. I spent $200 on this game! Come on already, let's go!

    2008 vs. 2018

    2008: - Finished freshman year, now into sophomore year of highschool. Freshman year was one of my best years of school. - Regularly see friends in person and online messaging (mainly Gaia Online, but Facebook was starting to make a presence) - Learned how to ride a bike. - Was buying DS games almost weekly. I can't even recall where I was getting the money from, but I regularly rode my bike to Gamestop. - Primarily only played RPGs. - Bad social anxiety, coupled with awful facial acne that hurt my image for years. - Started writing in a journal. It's actually just a .txt file. - Most of my free time was being outside, staying at a friends, or playing games at home while my brother and mom were out. - Terribly ignorant of politics. But hey, I was 15. - Primarily wear eye contacts. - Listened to music on my SanDisk MP3 player with 1GB of storage. - Windows Vista. 256MB Memory. Kill me. - Vault soda. 2018: - I graduated college a year ago. - I've been working my current job that's in my field for the past year. - I've been driving for a year now, too. - I have more money in savings than I would have imagined in 2008. - I think I've bought all the 3DS games I want at this stage. - I usually refrain from buying games unless it's something I really want because my going rate of finishing games has drastically slowed down. - Been dating my girlfriend for over two years now. - Seeing friends irregularly, usually several months apart. Life has taken its course for most of us. - Been wearing glasses regularly for two years. - Eating healthier now. I've reduced my sugar intake, I no longer drink soda, and I'm more conscious on proteins. - Coffee is wonderful. - Linux may be a hobby of mine now. - Much more aware and much more concerned with politics. The future of my country is looking bleak, and that's not even accounting the impact climate change will have. - Still living in the same county as 2008. Because of my job, I'm much more geographically aware of the area than I was even a year ago. - More open-minded on videogame genres, including tough-as-nails platformers and dungeon-crawlers. - Most of my free time is spent in my room, at my desk or playing a game. I still live with my parents, partly because me renting somewhere wasn't financially reasonable with my work hours.
