    At some point in the near future I will probably try to get into tactical RPGs like Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, and Disgaea. Not yet though, I've been busy breaking into map-drawing games.

    Well, just one series, really. Etrian Odyssey is so much fun, even on casual (I'll have to take a shot at Normal mode at some point, really). Drawing maps is very nice.

    Some more niche titles, but I am very, very, very disappointed (though not surprised) Lufia II did not make the SNES Classic. Such a good game, and still no impetus to finally finish it. I want to, dammit, but I'd have to pull an emulator out of the dust because it's not available on Virtual Console. At least some other mentions like ActRaiser and Ogre Battle are available on either Wii or Wii U VC, that's something.

    Another title would be The Lost Vikings, which I feel also doesn't get enough love, but is actually really fun? Puzzle platformers all the way, man.

    As always, Picross excites me so much. I have like 10 Picross games on 3DS, which I think is all of them... and then I've played a bunch of mobile and PC as well. When I finally get a Switch, this will be the first thing I purchase on the eShop, that's for sure! The top left corner of my 3DS touchscreen is permanently smudged with stylus scratches from switching between blocks and crosses, though... hope that won't happen on Switch.

    I hope there will be multiple save files so I can go through the puzzles myself, and maybe also play cooperatively with some people to introduce them to the goodness that is Picross without showing them the puzzle solution before starting the puzzle or deleting my save just so they're not spoiled.
    ...not that I have any idea who I could introduce to Picross, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.Edited 4 weeks ago by Unknown

    Alliance Alive is looking good, and I was glad to see it being name-dropped in the European Direct as well. I've heard the game by the Legend of Legacy devs is better than that game, which is already a game I like... most of the time. So that's looking good there. Plus the music, I'm sure that will also be great. I'm buying relatively many limited editions these past few years, but these things are just looking *so* good.

    And then there's EO V, of course. I've got the demo downloading now, though I'll probably start with a new team when the game releases and I finally get going on it. I've been playing IV recently, mostly to tide me over with a game I can just put away when I would want to until Samus Returns released... and it's got me hooked. Currently in the third land (Casual mode though... I'm new to this), and I just don't want to stop. Drawing maps is so addicting.

    @Gamer-Law At least they reprinted it at some point, although they still didn't release it in Europe. Looking forward to this remake, though I don't yet know whether I will go physical or digital - that depends on whether or not Deep Silver is giving us the limited edition as well.Edited last month by Unknown

    Talking about Final Fantasy and mods, this summer I finally played Final Fantasy VIII on Steam and it was good, I used like half a dozen mods to do things like update the textures a bit, change the music, overhaul the entire UI, and change the controller button images. So good.

    With Xenoblade, the way every Driver has their own companion weapon person thingy reminds me a lot of what I've read of Tales of Destiny, where a bunch of main characters have their own (elemental) Swordian companions. Haven't played either of the games myself, but it sounds like there's some overlap in the ideas and mechanics.

    I wouldn't say they came entirely out of nowhere, but most games that became part of my favourites are puzzle games. For some godforsaken reason, I just really love the things. I'd never played a Hitman game when I got Hitman GO... I think from one of the Square Enix Holiday Surprise bundles they have at the end of the year, and it was so good. So, so, so good. In fact, the entire GO series is *chef's kiss*.

    A title I didn't expect to like was RIVE (and that's not Dutch pride talking), but after playtesting it at Two Tribes twice I really loved the game. I saw the words "twin-stick shooter" and was like nah, but actually playing it was a lot of fun. Definitely a great game.

    The game looks fine, guys. The real problem here is the names: Primm and Popoi will always be Purim and Popoie in my mind. Nothing anybody can do about it.

    Honestly though, this is some really great news! I'm glad it's coming, I'm more glad it's also coming to Steam, and I'm overjoyed at the possibility there is a very real chance we'll see an official release of Seiken Densetsu 3 in our remaining lifespans. It's a victory all around.

    Now all that remains is to get Adventures of Mana on Steam as well, and then get all these Mana remakes on Switch. I'll double- or even triple-dip if that's what it takes for SD3 to get remade and released in the West.

    My dad was big into Supaplex for MS-DOS, which was basically Russian Boulder Dash. He really loved that game, sometimes going at it for a long time. There were 111 levels in the original game, I think the highest he ever got up to was 90 or so?
    Apparently, one time I had a primary school mate over, and his save got deleted. He was so upset, understandably. I don't remember any of it now, but I can share the feel of pain when I lose hours of progress in games, myself.

    Ah, simpler times. If only there was a good way to play that game in this day and age.

    This will definitely be high on my Switch wishlist; would have loved to give the first DQ Builders a try, but I have no platforms to play it on... hopefully Square Enix will bring the first game to Switch as well. I could totally go for a dual-pack.

    And then dip even more into the Dragon Quest hype by (hopefully) getting the Erdrick/Loto saga on 3DS if it comes over here.
    ...when it comes over here. Gotta stay hopeful.
