well, you know the challenge I present. I'm open to suggestions of course. As mentioned, Phantasy Star II is my choice for now. But if there's something that I'm not thinking of that may strike my fancy, I'd be interested to hear ideas.


How do you play PSII on the X1? I thought the Sonic Collection isn’t backwards compatible...

He said he doesn't Android anymore either.

Pretty sure Noise is 100% XBOX ONE SON these days.

Which guarantees every TR month should present an interesting challenge for him.

I'm working on a personal "I'm interested in maybe playing these" list right now for ELN. I will post it eventually. Just in case anyone wants to crib some ideas.

If you haven't played through Metroid, Phantasy Star, or The Guardian Legend yet, you should. By "you" I mean you. Yes. YOU.
PLAY KING'S FIELD.

I don't disagree. Though to be honest I find the challenge interesting. I've always kind of focused on one platform at a time, so finding something that fits on said platform is interesting to me.

I actually might be able to participate in this!

Final Fantasy II (NES) is coming up on my Marathon. I just have to beat some games before hand, so I'll be starting it very late.

But, it has Maria as a main party member throughout the entire story. It's a Repro of the Famicon version, so I'm super excited to play it. I just have to get through some other games first.
