Mission.
Accomplished.

Took six hours or so, but I finally snagged this sneaky boy!

@Ralizah Ooh well done. I haven't encountered that yet. I did randomly get a blue marlin which I was pretty chuffed about and finally managed to catch a tarantula before it bit my poor villager. 😂

Thank you NHS

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy It'll be a while before I'm playing the sequels, as I'd hate to suffer burnout, but I'm looking forward to getting back to Resi later on, so thanks!

@Ralizah Congratulations on your catch! I laughed way too hard at the game's joke.

@Ralizah Six hours? I assume with that you were either still very lucky or very unlucky! I admire your dedication.

@Tjuz Well, I'm including the whole process: selling off the excess fish clogging up my inventory as I look for it, digging for manilla clams, fashioning new poles and fish bait. Probably only a solid three hours or so of actual standing at the river fishing for it.

And thanks! The game is fun enough that I don't even feel particularly sore about the time spent trying to catch it. Just netted me some extra money, and I actually found a few new species I hadn't donated yet in the process.

I'm glad the Switch is a hybrid, though. I wouldn't want to sit near a TV doing this for hours. I can just integrate it into time I'm otherwise not doing anything with my hands, though.

Decided to continue playing Jak II on PS3 today and man, this game is still so freaking hard. Enemies can easily gang up on you and make you lose most of your health in an instant, and health is so scarce. Not to mention that there aren't any checkpoints in missions so if you die you have to start all the way from the beginning. This game is otherwise very fun and it could've been an amazing experience if it weren't for the steep difficulty. It has pretty much everything, from platforming to collecting stuff to shooting, racing and so on. It also has an interesting story with unique characters, so I can understand why people like it even though it has so many difficult missions.

@Ralizah Haha, the more I read about Animal Crossing the more I'm convinced it'd drive me insane! It does sound like a great tuning out game, so I wonder if many people actually play it with the Switch docked past the initial excitement. Glad you're having a great time with it, though. At least your efforts were still worth something even if you didn't get the fish you wanted for all those hours!

@KratosMD People often say that Jak II is the best of the franchise; for the reasons you've outlined above, I'd argue the opposite. I had much more fun with every other Jak game, even The Lost Frontier on PSP, because they felt more balanced and enjoyable to play.

It's still pretty cool, don't get me wrong, but I was so glad to leave it (and its multi-tiered, traffic-dodging races) behind. Was toying with the idea of replaying Jak 3 soon. Much better game.

@RogerRoger Yeah I've heard the same about Jak II, although some have said that it's just a blatant GTA copy since Naughty Dog wanted to create a game like GTA III at the time. I can definitely see that since it's a completely different kind of game compared to the first Jak & Daxter.

But yeah, the missions have been fun but can be very difficult with no checkpoints. I've even read that there are some missions coming up ahead that involve escorting CPUs and those can be incredibly frustrating. There is a chance that I may not finish this game because of this, but I'll give it my best regardless. I'm definitely looking forward to playing Jak 3 the most though. I just want to get these games over with, since I also plan on playing all the Sly Cooper games afterwards and I think those are much more consistent in their game design across each title.

@KratosMD I'd heard that Sony instructed Naughty Dog to cash in on the popularity of Grand Theft Auto, but it's six of one. Whoever said what, we still ended up with a pretty weak clone, shoe-horned into a franchise that really didn't need to go all urban.

Brace yourself for what's to come. There are some escort missions and races which require milliseconds of perfection and, in a game with slow and randomised NPC traffic... well, you'll get the idea.

Good luck, and take it from me; there's no shame in walking away!

I played a bit more of FF7 Crisis Core. I’m still undecided, it’s a bit fanfic-like in the way it tells the story. The gameplay’s kinda button mashey too. It’s not bad, just a bit ungainly. It’s worked well as a test of my laptop’s ability to upscale PSP games though, it looks incredibly good.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

I got Duke Nukem: Time to Kill on PS1 in the mail today and decided to boot it up and see how I felt about it. Played through the first level (which took about an hour) and I'm LOVING this game. It's so much fun and I think I'm finally getting used to PS1 tank controls and platforming in general. Although it definitely helps that you can use the analogue stick to control Duke, it makes for a much smoother experience. This is the first PS1 action game I've genuinely had a great time with. Well except when I played the first Syphon Filter a week ago I guess.

I think after finishing this game that I'm definitely ready to tackle Tomb Raider II on PS1. Duke Nukem might be the title that finally gets me into PS1 gaming.

Started playing Strider on Xbox One and this is one bloody marvellous game! I remember playing it earlier back in 2014 (I think) when it was on PS+ and I really enjoyed the hour or two that I spent on it. I decided to buy it on Xbox One this time in order to actually play the rest of the game and also nab some achievements while I'm at it.

It's basically like 2D Ninja Gaiden mixed with Metroidvania. It's so much fun and the pacing is incredible, you really feel like a ninja in this game. Definitely worth the €3 I spent on it!

@KratosMD Ooh, I got that free in a Humble Bundle a while back. I’ll definitely get on it sooner rather than later then.
