@Ralizah lol I really do like the Fairy Flies/Airy Lies bit they do with the title though, that was the nuts

Did you play Bravely Second? I have got (perhaps over) half way through a couple of times but run out of steam.. not exactly sure why as I really like it, in many ways more than 1. Think I might charge my 3DS up later.

@kyleforrester87 Yeah, there's some pretty cool fourth-wall breaking stuff late in the game. I also enjoyed how, when the game shows one of the other universes Ouroboros wants to invade, it uses the 3DS camera to show your face. Dude literally wants to break outta your 3DS and consume your reality lol.

I didn't play Bravely Second. I wasn't keen on exploring the same world again with a significantly worse OST. In retrospect, though, I think it probably would have been fun. A version of BD without the maddening time looping from the original game sounds like it could be a good time. I'll look into grabbing a copy someday if I can find it cheap-ish.

For now, though, it makes more sense to play the copy of Bravely Default 2 that's sitting unplayed on my shelf.

I've been very slowly playing through SMT: Strange Journey Redux on my 3DS. Very, very slowly. I imagine it and my Switch won't be getting nearly as much attention once my Steam Deck OLED comes in, though.

@Ralizah hate to strongly disagree with you about video game music AGAIN, but the Bravely Second soundtrack is hardly significantly worse, in fact it’s arguably not worse at all - Ryo did a stand up job, actually, and overall it’s a much better soundtrack than what Revo did for Bravely Default 2.

Don’t talk about Steam Decks please, I’m using all my will power not to order one right now. If I still want one as bad in 3-4 months I will pull the trigger. I really, really want to play Half-Life on it, and I hear it’s a free download right now, too…

Damn.. my TOTK save data has disappeared. I put 50-100 hours in it, but all of it is gone.

@kyleforrester87 I don't know...

I played it until Pikmin 4 came out. Now I've finished Mario Wonder I wanted to continue (was about 60-75% done I think), but I was met with the intro scene. When checking save files, it was simply gone. I even have cloud saves on, but there was nothing. And I always do manual saves as well, so it really should've been there.

I'm also positive I didn't mess with the save data, because I don't even know how. All I did in the last couple of months was play Pikmin 4 and Mario Wonder. That's all the Switch has beem used for.

@kyleforrester87 I already did so much though. Thinking back, it may have been over a 100 hours even, I cleared the map inch by inch, and I recall most of it still. I only had 2-3 areas left basically.

I don't mind redoing an hour or so, but I won't do all of it over again.

@kyleforrester87 Yeah, we're gonna just have to split on that. It's not a bad JRPG soundtrack, but the music was especially strong in BD1. It's night and day.

Haven't actually listened to much of the OST for BD2 yet, so I can't comment.

You should probably redeem Half-Life while you have the chance. Not that it's especially expensive to begin with lol. I held out on this system for a long time, and I have too much gaming hardware as is, but good lord, it's the best mid-gen upgrade I've seen to date. They did pretty much everything I wanted them to do in a revision.

@Octane Weird. Don't think I've ever lost save files for a game on my Switch.

I contacted Nintendo support, but I doubt they can do much since the cloud backup is also gone it seems.

@Ralizah true, maybe I should dig out that steam username and password. Not sure I have logged in for 15-20 years, mind you. Funny how big it is, I just remember everyone hating on it as it was buggy as hell at launch and stopped you getting into Counter-Strike! I’d like to hold out until next summer to get a Deck, but then I wonder if I’ll be thinking Switch 2…

@kyleforrester87 Valve has exploded into being one of the most consistently excellent companies in the industry. They even reduced the price of the 256GB OG Steam Deck to the prices the 64GB model used to sit at. And it's not like it's not selling well. Who does that?

Granted, there's a LOT of compatibility issues with a number of games, but there's so much one can do with this thing, and Valve's support for it is excellent. Heavily considering grabbing the other Souls games I've ignored until now (Sekiro, Dark Souls 2 & 3, etc.) for the thing. Despite my issues, I had a decent amount of fun with Dark Souls 1 in portable form on my SWOLED. And they're all verified to run well.

I might regret the decision when Nintendo launches a Switch 2 with something crazy like an open world Mario game or something, but unless they cultivate a suite of killer exclusives early on, I'm gonna try to wait for a revision.

@kyleforrester87 I have very vivid memories of Steam being abysmal during my childhood, my dad and both uncles have almost 20 years of service on it now, think my uncle’s at 19 years of service which is crazy. I think I’ve been on it for over 10 years myself, I do wish I had a Steam Deck cause I have one hell of a library built up by now.

@nessisonett it was so bad at launch that I still have negative feelings towards it, mostly because I haven’t used it much at all in the years since. But it became compulsory as a launcher for CS when 1.6 dropped (the final version before CS:Source), which in itself bought some gameplay changes that didn’t go down well, and getting connected to games was awful. It did settle down and people got over it, but I remember it took a while. I think my library must consist of CS, Half-Life 2 and Portal 1!

Oh boy, Bravely Default here we go again! I’ve been doing the sidequests to be fair, I’m enjoying the asterisk holders being fleshed out after each pass. I finally got that bloody key too so I can open the blue chests. Maybe I’ll find the last job this chapter too. Still can’t quite believe I was right about that wee flying toerag, although it’s interesting that only Ringabel has twigged.

Beat Super Mario RPG in just over 12 hours, Culex, Jinx and all hidden chests. Post game now, almost at the level cap, apparently missed loads of mini games.

What a charming little game that was.

Out of interest, do you ever close down the game, or are you just leaving it running on your 3DS?

Also, you in Ch. 7 or thereabouts?

@kyleforrester87 @Ralizah

Uh, I sort of beat the game. I was in Chapter 6 and the last crystal I listened to Ringabel and exploded it, instantly putting me into the finale where I beat the final boss and the credits rolled. Sort of. The thing with the title screen was pretty cool though. I assume there’s a true ending I’ve to get with the way it was worded when I reloaded my save but yeah, that was fairly mad all round.
