Title: Switch: Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Platform: Switch
Genre: RPG
Language: Japanese, English
Company: Gamefreak
Summary: Generally agree with most of the gaming veteran crowd who aren’t overrun with their Pokemon biases. 9/10 for Pokemon standards, only 6/10 by game standards. Basically, if you appreciate anything about Pokemon, I guess it’s worth playing. If not, then abbbsolutely skip lol. I WILL apply the full game standard to my rating here, unlike how I feel a lot of the “bigger” gaming critics out there put out.

Title: La Corda d’oro Starlight Orchestra 金色のコルダ スターライトオーケストラ
Platform: Android
Genre: Otome RPG
Language: Japanese
Company: Koei Tecmo
Summary: Playing it for Nojinii even if he’s not voicing an archetype I even particularly like (outgoing + sporty) TwT;;; The game quality is pretty good though, and it’s still La Corda series which has its classical music perks. Going full f2p though, even though subscription options are quite generous. Extra perks for MC being KonMisu (concert mistress) and Yokohama based (lots of traveling involved too).

Title: Yakuza 0 – 6
Platform: PC
Genre: Action RPG
Language: Japanese
Company: Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, SEGA
Summary: The entire Yakuza Kiryu saga is the perfect dose of Masaru manliness + stupid + wholesome content I’ve been hungering since Digimon Savers ended in 2007. So blessed and I will treasure it forever… thank you Ryu Ga Gotoku studio and all involved.

I’m perfectly Smiling face with happy with the ending even if some are salty that it wasn’t some other way in their boohoo headcanons. If anything, I just need more Majima content which will surely happen anyway.

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.
