Title: Pokemon Masters EX
Platform: Android
Genre: RTS
Language: Japanese/English
Company: DeNA
Summary: Oops, another game I’ve been playing since launch (*cough* Singapore beta). I’ll be honest on how ironic it is… I intended to drop this as soon as it got uglier than it was from its debut, but now I’m actually playing it way more than Pokemon GO. x_x This is easily thanks in part to actually being able to do all the end-game content in a reasonable amount of time with my budget teams.

The occasional demand to go through the horrendous gacha system does happen. BUT… there are SPARKS and one just needs to plan appropriately to spark in every important situation, and to completely SKIP banners when needed. Main pool additions are easy skips (except for early game when I succumbed to a few personal favs, but there weren’t other banner types back then anyway… and May because the water setups are OP, even off-type), and some Pokefairs are full skip as well.

With 2nd Anniversary, knowing that they’re willing to do a Pokefair multi with a select is good knowledge as well. (Paid only though) If budgeted correctly, this can be done for a fair $10 through buying the .99 pack for 300 gems when they come up. Does make me wonder if they’ll do a Pokefair AND Masterfair select in the 3rd anni… oh my.

But I’ve gotten all the Masterfair units thus far. We’ll see how long this keeps up haha.

Title: Trials of Mana
Platform: PC/Switch
Genre: Action RPG
Language: Japanese/English

Summary: I played the original SNES games for Mana dozens of times each and loved every moment. Secret of Mana remake was only so-so impressive, but this one did a much better job overall, despite not having couch coop anymore.

Title: Ni no Kuni 2
Platform: PSP
Genre: Action RPG
Language: Japanese
Company: Bandai Namco
Summary: Err I played this sometime early in 2019 I think? I completely forgot to write up a review for it probably because I was too preoccupied with other things later on, nothing particularly big or anything though. I think the game took me around 35-40 hours doing the same as I did for the original game, doing whatever sidequests I could do that didn’t involve too much extra work.

Title: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore 幻影異聞録♯FE
Platform: PSP
Genre: Otome
Language: Japanese
Company: Atlus
Summary: Big fat LOL to all the people who refuse to try this game because of the “censoring” they did for the Encore version. The only things they left out are unnecessary horny things that didn’t need to be in the game in the first place.
