    Yeah, I guess that might help. Harder is fine, and I don’t mind using a guide. I’m a beginner to the SaGa games but obviously not JRGPs in general.

    Honestly my first dive in to Saga games was with Romancing Saga 2 on the Switch. It isn't easy and a lot of the mechanics aren't explained to you. But there are guides out there that help explain everything you need to know.

    Romancing Saga 3 is way easier and more open than 2 in my opinion. But I'd say that 2's mechanic of choosing an heir when you die or restart is a lot more fun.

    I'd say that you should look up a guide for 2 and take a look at the mechanics of the game. If it sounds up your alley then dive in.

    Quick list of what I can think of off the top of my head:

    The more fights you do the higher the enemy level, the higher the enemy level the chance of running into hard fights is higher.

    You can flee from almost every fight but I believe it counts as a fight, so enemy level will still raise. Fleeing is important because maybe there are 3 dragons and you can't kill 2. Each time you run back into the fight it's random on the spawns.

    The higher the enemy level the more likely you are to gain spark (or waza, which I think they call it). Sparks gain skills for whatever weapon you are using. Weapon skills are crucial to killing things.

    When you reach a point where you just cannot win fights then you can start a new game+, your weapon skills, SP, and MP transfer over to the new game. This makes it much easier to make progress and generally you will reach where you died quickly.

    If you unlock classes then they may show up when you are choosing an heir.

    Use a guide if you get stuck. The game is very open and doesn't hand hold you, haha. I fought it for a long time but found the game to be way more enjoyable when I hit it up as soon as I get lost instead of running around for hours.

    I'm sure you can read more about the mechanics in the game from other sources. These games are my jam though... Coincidentally I am at the end of Romancing Saga 3 but might have to restart. Final Boss is murdering me hard and I can't leave the area.

    Romancing 2 sounds pretty great based on your description, and it’s on sale to boot. You’ve got yerself a sale, amigo!

    So, I'm playing Luigi's Mansion 3 and really digging it. But I realized something. Look back at the Castlevania Smash Bros. reveal.

    https://youtu.be/3VrbkoWUyIg

    Not only did this video show Luigi's plunger ability (never seen before LM 3), but the version of the Poltergust he's wearing has the Gooigi tank. Which is odd, because it would be so easy to use an earlier version of the Poultergust.

    Gooigi for the new Luigi's Mansion wasn't revealed until this June, 2019. The Smash Bros. Castlevania video came out in August 2018... and given the high quality of the animation, that video was surely developed at least a few months before that, if not more.

    Which means the Smash team reached out to Next Level at least a year and a half before the next Luigi's Mansion game's release in order to make Luigi's depiction (in another character's reveal!) as accurate as possible. Even though they didn't reveal Gooigi (the purpose of the new Poultergust) for another year.

    Holy shit.

    Just completed Blaster Master Zero 2. Pretty good game. If you like the previous Blaster Master games, give this one a go, it's a fun NES-style romp. I did feel that getting the true ending wasn't that fun and dragged on, but the game was great before that. Will take you about 10-15 hours if you go for all the items etc.

    Finally bought Blasphemous as a sort of birthday present to myself. Way more depth to it than I thought with all the items and spells and whatnot. I love the art style too, reminds me of games like Altered Beast.

    is there any fast travel? or am I to pay the sins of the world by having to backtrack 5,000,000 times?

    There is fast travel but it is extremely few and far between. One of my major issues with that game.

    I stopped playing Blasphemous because it made me feel like an idiot. It's...kinda hard.

    I'll go back to it eventually because I really liked what I played.

    Indeed it does.

    All of the weapon and wing attachment points have the same shape and can be fitted on backwards, meaning that you can create all kinds of lopsided monstrosities. In addition to stacking wings, you can do things like fitting weapons backwards and attaching them directly to the sides without bothering with wings at all.

    Well... Ring fit adventure d1 actually just put me on the floor in our bathroom for the wonderful cold tiles.

    That uh, was humbling.

    my partner who hasn't been active the last few years except a serving job but prior to spent years doing yoga and belly dance and hiking cruised through the whole first world.

    I had to exit the game halfway through stage 2. I've learned that me lifting doesn't actually mean anything for endurance exercise.

    Is there any way to make the many, many squats of quiet mode easier on the knees? I don't know if my form is bad or what but it's hard to do it two days in a row because my the first few squats on the second day sting a bit.

    Edit: I suppose I should mention I don't historically have any knee issues, I've always been at or even below average weight. Just... incredibly sedentary.

    I haven't tried it, but there are various assist modes in the options, and turning knee assist on apparently just makes you auto run. I think it'll also just turn off every single exercise involving knees too, which is a bummer if you have no problem doing knee lifts but not squats.

    Also once you get a feel for the system, it's not too hard to know what motions the joycons want. You can just wiggle your leg to make you run and do any other exercise. It's one of those situations where you're only cheating yourself, but you also gotta do what you gotta do. Halfway through trying to do Mountain Climber and I just went... nope! We're just shaking the joycon for this one before deleting it from the menu bar.

    Heavy lifting and hours on a bike with a Switch in hand give a false sense of fitness. I haven't had the chance to play ring fit yet, but I know I've been similarly humbled by what should be easy aerobic exercise in the past.

    I figured I'd try out Ring Fit last night, just a quick little foray into it to see what it was like.

    I finished the first map just short by 6xp to level up, which is unconscionable to me, so I went on to the second one.

    I finished the second one and saw a boss on the third? A natural conclusion state, so I may as well have gone in.

    I finished the boss and was done, just done. Sweating, exhausted, wow I don't exercise a lot and this did me in.

    Then, in the shower, I grew to regret the McDonald's I'd eaten a few short hours ago. I spent the rest of the night certain I was gonna barf, but never actually doing so.

    Feel a lot better today, but ho boy was last night rough.

    Good game.

    Having the same experience with ring fit as you guys. It’s kicking my ass, but the game part is great at pushing me further than I’d ever push myself just exercising. I have back issues and curl ups have always been too painful for me, so this is the first time I’ve gotten a good abs workout without intense back pain.

    This is also the first time in my life that I’m looking forward to exercising again and am kinda bummed that I’ve been too busy and out of town for the past few days to get a workout in.

    Went ahead and gave it a shot based on what you guys are saying... It really is that good. I've been slacking on my exercise the past few months because the plague went around the house (ran a half marathon in September, a 5K in October and 8K on Thanksgiving) and this really kicked my butt.

    I really enjoyed the Ring Fit but for the pain it caused my knees. Ended up trading it in. Luckily I walk to and from work so I still get lots of exercise.

    Ring Fit Adventure had been intriguing me for a while since it's actually a game that looks fun to play. I set it to the highest setting and it's a decent workout so far. Just to fight the very first enemy, you need to do 30 body weight squats, which is a fair amount (usually I do sets of 10-15 reps) at a minimum (killed it with knee presses afterwards). There is a ton of set up and I had trouble figuring out how to get it to skip setting up the joycons after completing it. It kept looping back to the tutorial again. It's also pretty cool that it emphasizes stretching, which a lot of people dont do at all (in general). So far, so good.

    hey, in Starlink at the post end game:
    Does it ever stop spawning the boss things? I'd like to actually build up a planet, but I'm am for ever falling behind farther and farther because I have to keep taking out the big bugs and dreadnought ships.

    Kinda soured me on it. Trying to decide if I should buy the digital stuff on sale.

    It was not 3 games, it was a crapload of games + blind boxes. They just sold out super quick.I had the blind box in my cart but it sold out before I could buy because it couldnt read my address or some crap. But, this sale was for leftover warehouse items, and they made it super clear all over every advertisement they did that there would be very limited quantities of them because of this. I'm pissed because their stupid store wouldnt recognize my very valid address but you've gotta be fair to them as well, they did everything they possibly could to set expectations for this.

    I feel like M&J could easily port their "its called Sea of Thieves" jokes to Limited Run Games.

    I mean they're cleaning out leftover stock from Limited releases. That's at least double limited.

    A "real" corporation would raise the price to meet demand of this kind of thing rather than the supply.

    The sale is specifically to get rid of leftover units because even if they get 9,000 orders Nintendo stipulates they make 10,000. They have to clear this leftover stock out to make room for new stock so they do this sale. In every single place where they advertised it they put a little blurb explaining all this and explaining that many of them had very limited quantities and would sell super fast. I woke up at 9:40CST and almost everything was sold out, but I wasn't mad about that, except at myself. They basically had to get rid of stuff and wanted to do a cool thing with it, and they don't deserve being knocked for it. Many of the blind bag items in the rare category were valued well above the $29.99 price tag. Would you suggest they go back and do a bunch of impossible deals to have a bunch more product for a sale when that invalidates the entire reason for the sales existence in the first place?

    Edit: there's legit reasons to get mad at LRG for sure (like their bizzare refund policy for example) but what you're talking about isn't one.
