    @bowlisimo @feenwager Might I suggest Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey? It is a completely different tone to the Persona series, is challenging but hadn’t faced issues of spending a long time grinding, I’m still in the middle of the game though.

    Hello friends,

    I know have been MIA for a while, busy times and I just recieved a 5 day holiday (it’s the last day of Ramadan today and Eid follows) so I got a good chunk to do the things I wanna do. Lately I’ve been playing Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey on the DS but keep going and coming back on Valhalla Knights on PSP (actually, playing it on the Vita, found it for like $6 on a sale, which I think is still going on), VK didn’t get much praise critically, being it is kinda unpolished. It is a proper dungeon crawler with a more traditional RPG approach, the way it presents itself however sort of gave me a flashback to something missing in games nowadays.

    I wonder if any of you played any of the Tobal series, Ehregeiz or a Japan-only title known as Abala Burn. I don’t predates it, but there was a handful roguelike side modes in some PS1 fighting games coming from RPG developers (Square-Enix, Tamsoft, etc.), these modes probably could have been my earliest experience with roguelikes as a kid.

    (gameplay starts at 2:00)

    I’ve been kinda wondering, why don’t they make these anymore? Or at least, has there been any notable ones in recent date? I would sure love to play one if there are any. I guess Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls could be a fair candidate as a full game of that kind of thing, but I’m thinking of something more randomly generated.

    Oh man @cgrajko totally beat me to the Shadowrun returns news, good on ya! I know I ponied up my cash without a second thought =) can’t wait to see all the great stuff (or at least old) stuff that comes out of kickstarter

    been crazy busy recently, lots of 1/2 sleep nights I’m afraid so I haven’t had much chin-strokey time but I got a few scattershot things, Playing SMT: Strange Journey for DS, and it is completely that old school SNES style SMT game, it’s also 15$ at gamestop so good times all around, only 8 hours in despite the days (see aformentioned busy complaining =P) but it seems pretty great so far, can’t wait to see where the weird splits come out, I’ll probably get into it more later

    Speaking of old SNES games, does anyone remember Dungeon Master? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dLdoy0q2Gc ? Well allow me to suggest Legend of Grimrock coming out on GoG? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPuzj1xhlQ8 comes out April 11th, preorder to drop the $15 tag to $12.

    Phyrra Omega is adorable even if she’s a crazy soul devourer ❤ new main? maybe, she's got tons of great guard damage and high return for what she lands. Good stuff

    One of the papers I'm writing had be dredge up old memories of SimEarth for SNES, that game was kinda rad. Really teaches you a lot of science completely by accident. Good for the nerdy kid, wonder how it holds up now that I actually have some idea of what changing the atmospheric gasses will do?

    Aaaaaaa!! I'm late already! :/ Good luck out there squaddies
