Welcome back to a monthly thread for dopers to check in and discuss what games they’ve been playing lately. Here’s the previous threads:
The thread is not limited to any particular type of game. Video, computer, board, card, role-playing, war, fantasy league, or whatever your playing preference is.
Last time I provided details I was playing Persona 3: FES and I just completed the original game portion of it. I wound up not being as enthusiastic about it in the end since once I got a handle on the options they lost their significance and I was never sure how much combat I should engage in for each in game month. I wound up spending a lot of time grinding up levels that weren’t necessary but I couldn’t be certain about it until I was at the end of the next section.
The last boss was a monster as well with over a dozen forms and several of them essentially being dice tosses if you can successfully get past them. It was an hour and a half fight that I made to the last few attacks multiple times and then suddenly had someone hit with a status effect that I never got a chance to counter before it ruined me.
Still I liked the game a lot. It was a nice merger of the dating sim mechanics and RPG. If it had been paced better I would call it perfect, but as it stands it is a very interesting title.
I’m not really sure what I’m going to play next. It is very likely I’ll pick up a new game tomorrow. Lost in Blue for the Wii is a real option for me, but I don’t know if I’m in the mood for an adventure game after Persona. It might be a situation where I’ll just take twenty bucks to the used game rack and pick out whatever sounds quirky or entertaining.
So, it’s your turn. Whatcha playin’?
