Started a re-play of Dark Cloud 2....

With the intention of actually Finishing It this time. Each time I start playing it, I think "surely I can finish it since it's an awesome game, one of my favorites, why do I always get distracted?" (And each time, as I'm re-realizing now, it's because I get distracted by going back through previous levels to fully "complete" them, level up weapons and monster transformations, etc., until I just get tired of it.)

Each time I replay, I also swear to myself that I'm not going to neglect my monster transformations this time. And each time, that tends to fall by the wayside Real Damn Quick, because they are SUCH a pain. (I'm still trying this time, though, damnit! XD)

And each time, sadly, I get my ass kicked at least once by the very first fight of the game and have to restart, which at least isn't exactly too much work. So much for a tutorial fight!

(And yes, I've quickly abandoned my replay of FFVIII... I do want to play off between it and this a bit, but I'm more interested generally in finishing the 19480977 games I have but haven't technically finished, before replaying games that I did finish. Generally.)

Also feeling a bit crappish today, and trying to drum up the stamina to write up a Monday Fun post.

Is this like Vagrant Story, where you can die before the credits?


On a different note, how did your Sims game end up? Maybe I just missed it?

Oh, I really do need to get back to the Sims thing. I've been distracted!

And yeah, you can die before the credits, since the opening credits/sequence takes place after a little bit of the gameplay/starting cutscenes, but not like it in that the fights in general aren't y'know all that tough or anything... it's just that this particular fight you're still getting used/re-used to the controls, and rather than giving you an easy tutorial fight they instead throw you into a fight that's tougher than general exploring-the-dungeons fights.

I think i own both Dark Cloud and Dark Cloud 2, and haven't gotten around to playing either of them yet. *sigh*

You should! I like Dark Cloud 2 more, but both have good aspects to them, so you might want to just start with 1. But up to you of course. ;)
