I'm still telling myself I'm gonna go back to Dragon's Dogma eventually and do a more complete playthrough with the final ending, especially as a fella at work is super into it and I bought my pal a copy for Christmas.

Also, I feel I should clarify this in case any feelings were hurt: I only chose Balla as the person to call ugly in my earlier joke because he seems like the Forumite most likely to think of himself as handsome.

I wondered if that was it.  Likewise, I wouldn't have called anyone who wasn't Possibly The Most Confident Person I Know a goblin.  But yep, no offence taken: I have an irritatingly large number of insecurities, but my appearance hasn't been one of them since I had a 'teen' in my age.

Anyway!  Dragon's Dogma was meant to be half price, but I checked and it's only the NA eShop. Aww! So I'm stuck playing Bravely Default 2 (80 hours!?!?!?), which is basically this over and over again with every boss:

It's pretty easy to switch to the American eshop and buy stuff if you're keen, but I'm sure it'll be on sale over here eventually.

I found myself sidetracked by the ever present demon in my life named Final Fantasy XIV, but I'll be hopping back to Bowser's Fury before next Friday to polish off to be ready to Rise and shine.

I went back to Sonia Mania having felt like I never gave it a proper go, and having seen Cappa refer to it as one of his top Switch games. I've gotten to the final boss (well, sort of, I know there's a super secret one too, but fuck that) and I HATE IT. I don't think I'll ever actually beat it, not least because if you get a game over you have to do the whole last zone all over again and life is too short.

The Oil Ocean zone was cool, though.

I'm playing three different games:
- Monster Hunter Rise is obviously my 'main game', but I do find it stressful and overwhelming and I'm only playing a bit at a time. One for the evenings when I can settle down and spend an hour or so on a couple of quests.
- Bowser's Fury is my secondary game, one for evenings when I've had too rough a day to risk my sanity on the altar of MHR's deluge of information.
- Finally, I picked up I Am Dead, Annapurna's latest, off the eShop at 25% off. This is a weird one: it's basically, try and find the hidden object in the diorama thing. The gameplay's nice and relaxing, so this is one I play when I fancy a few cheeky minutes away from my work laptop during the weekday; but the visual style feels played out and the voice acting on the dog makes me want to be dead too. Not a recommendation at the moment. Meh

I feel like I haven't had nearly as much time to play MHR as I'd have liked, what with the day job, podcasting and stuff.
I've played 28 hours.

I'm on 16 but would be more but thought better give Balan a bash and catch up with some anime.

I have... dropped IAD.  Definitely do not recommend.

Brilliant. Laughing

I've been playing just a wee bit of Monster Hunter Rise to the surprise of nobody. And by just a wee bit I mean 50 hours...

Okay, I have to ask: who's the Tails Sonia?  I think I'd find GJones' pictures a lot funnier if I got any of them. Embarrassed

She's the mononymous Sonia! She did Eurovision decades ago and sang "Better the Devil You Know". And there's Sonia from Eastenders and Sonia from Mortal Kombat (I think?). There ends your Sonia lesson.

Nailed it. I wasn't familiar with the mononymous Sonia so I was scraping the barrel there.

Ah okay! I did get the other two Sonias. I think I also missed out on Rum's misspelling which didn't help at all!

I'm now playing five Switch games, six if you count the current co-op offering. Not sure if good or bad.

I downloaded the BioShock Collection because it was only £16 and I think it'll be a novelty to play them in handheld mode. Plus it's been years since I've played them (I think I originally played the first BioShock in 2009, 2010?) so it'll be a nostalgia trip. £5.33 for each game is a bargain! (Though I am also aware the collection is occasionally reduced to like £8 total on the PS Store which is even crazier.)

Curious to know how well or otherwise it's aged Rum. BioShock is a game I'm sure I wouldn't enjoy but feel like I should play. Shifty

Possibly overegging the pudding to say I'm going to keep playing 6 games in tandem, but as of this past week:
  • Monster Hunter Rise because well duh. Currently just up to the post-2* emergency quest, but still need to murder a Great Jaggi and capture a Lagombi to finish the bunch. I am making very slow progress.
  • Tales of Vesperia, which might be my main game again now. Enjoyable RPG with great characters that I paused to play BD2 despite it probably being better than BD2.
  • West of Loathing. Only just left the first town. Picked the black horse and Doctor Alice. Not sure if this was wise or not.
  • Alwa's Legacy, as seen in eShop topic. Metroidvania. Just started.
  • The Last Campfire, also as seen in eShop topic. Also just started. That narrator though. No
  • The Stretchers. It's a comedy co-op adventure published by Ninty themselves, but it's aesthetically a bit weak.
  • And finally, this weekend I added New Super Mario Bros. U to the mix as another co-op game. We got on with SM3DW so thought we'd try this, and I never got Super Luigi U on Wii U so thought it might be worth my while anyway, and it was on sale. I'm a bit Neutral on this so far: coming back to it after SM3DW is like coming to Bowser's Fury after Mario Odyssey. It feels really limited and looks not as colourful.

Sooooooo yep. Lotsa games.

Is Super Luigi U included in the NSMBUD package? I wasn't sure. I never finished that back in the day so that makes me more excited to take it out of the cellophane!
