I don't get to game very much during the school year. Catching up a bit during the summer. I played Beneath a Steel Sky and finished it fairly quickly (it's an old-school adventure game, and a darkly-funny one, although I was rather distracted by the fact that no one had an Australian accent despite the game being set in Australia.)

Games to play/finish soon:
- Might and Magic: World of XEEN (PC. I'm done with Clouds and one dungeon away from finishing Darkside, and haven't touched the World content yet. I don't know to what extent I'm going to do the Dungeon of Death. The first level is fun, but I seem to remember the second-to-last level being tedious.)
- Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth (PSP, Normal/Ending B. I'll do an A Ending run on hard mode later. Honestly I'm amazed I don't have saves from hard mode... did I not play through this game on this memory stick before...?)
- Breath of Fire (SNES, playing on Wii U)
- Transistor (PS4. I've finished once and am working on the first recursion; I just need to get back to it and kill the final boss.)
- Dishonoured (PS3. I want a no-kills low-chaos playthrough, but I'm not gonna worry about being spotted. Just watching my SO do a Ghost playthrough was excruciating.)
- Final Fantasy X-2 (PS3 remaster. I got distracted by the ridiculous arena mode and giving all of the monsters doge meme names, so I should get back to the game so I can see the actual plot. I'm probably strong enough with some of the dress spheres that I can do a lot of damage, and low-level enough that I'm not going to break the game completely.)

There's more, but that's probably enough.

— Good to bump into another M&M fan, but dare I ask how you feel about Swords of Xeen?

— Don't think I've done Hard Mode on VP before. Then again, I've not beaten Star Ocean 2 on a difficulty higher than Earth, either.

— I love the original Breath of Fire. It seems pretty conventional until about the halfway point, but, as soon as the villains get their stuff together, it really takes off. Underrated.

— And I have the Vita version of Final Fantasy X-2 ... theoretically. They give you FFX, but then make X-2 download-only. :-| Uncool. I wish I had waited for the PS4 version of the remasters.

Hmm, I'd forgotten that GOG had M&M titles. I've got them on UPlay, the proprietary Ubisoft launcher, in a collector's set that includes the first six games, and then several of the others separately. The UPlay version has the two original Xeen game pre-merged into the Worlds format, and then includes Swords, too, but I've not tried importing anything into that.

I'm also playing FFX-2 (for the first time, I had started it a while back, died in Bevelle before I found a save point and had to go to grad school before I could finish it). IT'S SO FUN. I'm not really being hardcore about getting 100% (because New Game+) and it's just so wonderful.

Drak had be play Breath of Fire III and IV, and they were also wonderful.
