This is also why I am playing Swords before 4 and 5. I don't want to have a lackluster experience, and Swords uses the updated engine of 5, so going from 3 to it means there are some improvements. Monster designs are nice, for example.

Did you ever continue on? I'm wondering if I should move to 6 in the future.

I did; we did that during Together RPG. My time with the series went MM1, next year MM3, following year MM2, 4, 5, aborted Swords. I also snuck in some time with MM10 around the time I was playing MM1, but shelved it until I played more of the series to get a better handle of the post-5 games which it took cues from in terms of character development.

I haven't moved on to the other titles yet, but I have heard good things about 6 and decent things about 7. I've heard 8 is when it starts to get bad and 9 is off a cliff.


Might And Magic 6&7 are certified classics. MM8 isn't bad per say but it's definitely lackluster and weakest of the "trilogy". Might And Magic 9 is poo.

Already there. I'm on my first non-fixed emperor (I've been resetting when I game over), but I might restart my file because I screwed up a quest. This game is full of non-intuitive systems.

I bought it, but I haven't put much time in yet. There's some really good advice over in this Talking Time thread, though. estragon seems to know his stuff about the game and the various systems.

I ended up restarting my file and I'm much happier with how things are going. My biggest piece of advice is that if you start a quest, finish it. If you let a generation pass when you're midway into a quest it can break a portion of that quest, locking you out of potential party classes (that's why I restarted).

So basically... definitely sounds like an Akitoshi Kawazu game. I think I'll grab it on the Switch sometime.

I could fight the final boss right now of Xenoblade 2. I have not attempted it yet but still, know the final boss is level 70. I'm level 73 but still, want to gain some levels before I take him on.

Playing a lot of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on PS4, along with:

* Odin Sphere (PS4 and Vita, both a separate purchase but they've got cross save so it was worth it, especially since they were both on sale)
* Persona 4 Golden (Vita)
* Final Fantasy 9 (PS4)

I also recently bought Transistor, Earthlock and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 1 &2, all for PS4, though I haven't gotten around to playing them yet. I've played MUA 1 on PSP and 360 and liked how it played so much like X-Men Legends (wish they'd remaster THOSE games, and make a 3rd one). Also, I'd love to see a Marvel/DC game in that style.

Been playing Persona 5 finally as I got it for Christmas. It's really good as I hoped, the only issue is it not being portable. Oh well. I am pretty much nowhere yet, so no real comments about the systems yet, other than it doesn't seem to different than other Persona games.
