  1. Final Fantasy II is your least favorite FF Caspius? Crazy how different tastes are. It’s becoming one of my favorites along with the rest of the top “bracket”: FFVI, FFVIII, FFIX, FFI, FFX and FFXII. Except for FFVII what would be your second favorite?

    Happy as I an getting snes, my weakness, I think their latest move is quite slimy. But I guess they can do that and i get why because no matter what they do Switch is my favorite console because of the sheer amount of games of all kinds and I actually “Switch” now xD I can’t help but love playing Skyrim or Darkest Dungeon or another darker game, change to Mario or Zelda and then pick up a snes game and then change to a sim game.Oh well. Hopelessly lost to Nintendo I guess.

    September is crazy gametime for sure. Now I have to decide, Baldur’s Gate will probably take first priority though.

    Have a good week you all!

  2. It has been (and will continue to be) a great time for great games lately. I’ve played a little of Fire Emblem: Three Houses too, but it’s more on-and-off. My gaming moment of the week has definitely been River City Girls which released a few days ago. It’s not just a successor to River City Ransom, but I think also heavily inspired by the excellent Scott Pilgrim The Game which has been unfortunately scrubbed off of the face of the planet due to being digital-only.

    Whereas I own Xenoblade Chronicles and Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE already, but have only put a handful of hours into both, I have to decide whether they’re worth buying again. Xenoblade needs the upgrade more. I don’t think TMS#FE will get that much of an upgrade, they just know many more people own Switches now than Wii Us then. It’s pretty much a Persona game though.

    And then Link’s Awakening very soon! One of my all-time favorite games, and unquestionably worth playing again.

  3. Scott Pilgrim is one of the worst games I have ever played. Character movement and collision detection just felt wonky AF. Unplayable!

    Stick with Golden Axe!

    Tokyo Mirage Sessions isn’t really like a Persona game – or rather it is like Persona 1 and 2, before the series incorporated such heavy sim aspects. Tokyo Mirage Sessions seems very dungeon focused. IMO Fire Emblem: Three Houses is more of a Persona game than Tokyo Mirage Sessions is.

    At any rate, I will be picking up both Xenoblade and Tokyo Mirage Sessions – not so much for the upgrade, but because they are both great games that were released on terrible systems. I love my Switch, and enjoy having it connected to my TV, and so I’ll re-buy these Switch ports so that I can actually play them without having to go rummage through plastic crates in order to dig out and set up systems that I dislike playing. Space is at a premium around my TV, and the Wii and Wii U just do not belong there.

  5. For my last entry, I really meant the SG-1000 version of the game Ninja Princess instead of the Master System version The Ninja, which I realize now is a quandry. On the one hand, games have to be officially released in English, which The Ninja was but Ninja Princess was not. However, the acceptable consoles does contain SG-1000 which itself was not released outside of Japan. I could choose a different game, but Ninja Princess really requires no language skills to be playable, if that helps.

  6. @Matt – I recall Caspius saying something along the lines of him being willing to review a Japan exclusive if there was no reading comprehension required, so IF he still feels that way then you may be in luck.

  7. I had a game in mind, Tower of Druaga. from the 80’s. only released in Japan. I’ve played it up to level 15 so far I haven’t had any problems. That game is just 60 levels of pain. The one on ps2 I liked just never have the time to play it.

  8. Honestly, I didn’t pick Sekiro as my game cause it had “shadow” in the title. I just think it would be a good game for Caspius to review. But the fact that it had shadow in the title made it all the better pick, though I didn’t know about the inside joke until after the fact. Anywho, my birthday is also tomorrow (11th) like that poet you mentioned, though I don’t have any poetry for you to read.

  9. I wonder, if Nintendo announces a mother trilogy to the Switch, does that mean the terrifying return of the demon king Lusipurr to the day tonight?
