I finally picked up a copy of Star Fox 64 3D, new for $20. Been wanting this game for quite a while, but I was unwilling to play $40 for a cart-only version at Gamestop. Thanks goes to Nintendo for finally adding it to their Nintendo Selects line recently. yes

I wonder how FF7 is today. I gave it a shot several years ago on my PSP, but didn't make it a super far.

It’s pretty good but it’s no Star Tropics.

It's really not fair to compare anything to StarTropics.

Picked up The Evil Within 2. Long overdue to give this a shot. I also bought Zombie U for my son. When I originally got the game, I had to stop playing it because I didn't want him to wander in and watch me playing it. Time changes things.

Bought 'The last days of June' in the Switch eShop sale.  Was waiting for this to get a discount, and at 50% I took the plunge.

It's an interactive tale about loss of a relative (June).  Not sure what to expect.

I rebought Monster Hunter World and got World of Final Fantasy. When I bought my PS4 I made a list of about 20 games I wanted to play for it, and now that I picked up World of Final Fantasy there's only one left on the list.

And I did spend about 30 minutes with Monster Hunter World and I fought a low-level monster just to get back into the groove, but wow. I completely suck all over again. Not sure if I'm going to need to start from scratch or just keep fighting schmuck battles to see if I can remember all the nuances.

Monster hunter is like riding a bicycle for me.  I just slide right back in to it with the same skill I left the last game with.  Although I do suspect that Capcom made slight changes to the Hammer weapon class, as for some reason their reach felt shorter than it did in other games.

I’ve been meaning to get World of Final Fantasy for some time now. May finally get it very soon.

Wish I could say the same. I always have to spend some time ramping back up. every time I've played, I always have to start from scratch, but I'm going to try not to do that this time. I'm hoping there were enough quality of life changes the a lot of the little things will just be a matter of remembering which button to push.

I put in about 2 hours so far, and my first impressions are that it's actually like Kingdom Hearts without the Disney characters. Just pure Final Fantasy. Can't say I'm loving it yet, but there's a lot of hand-holding in there still working me through tutorials and explaining things to me like I'm 5 years old.

Ugh, I'm still horrible at that.  I'm wielding a Charge Blade and I press the wrong button combination at least twice every fight, even after having used it for 70+ hours.  There's just something abou how the controls are mapped to the Xbox controller that doesn't sit well with me...
