Yeah for sure.

I ended up getting an "A" grade for April even though Russia left the project. I'm halfway thru May and it's amazing how much laser rifles and vests make a difference on missions. I'm skipping Carapace armor for Skeleton; It should be available after my current mission. I just need to build my thermo plant, launch a couple more satellites, and interrogate aliens. It's too bad Brazil left the project so early. "We Have Ways..." would have really helped out. Also the game refuses to give me another Assault. I have only had ONE since the beginning. (Nicknamed him "Deadman" cuz he's had so many near-misses, I can't believe he's not dead!) I need to buy the squadie OTS upgrade soon. I know the next couple months are going to get tough when the aliens start becoming better armed and aggressive. I still cannot believe I've made it this far on Impossible.

It's so demoralizing when that happens. You've heard my tale of woe. I can't be arsed to (re)start Adventure again, at least not for a couple of weeks/months.

I actually packed up my Retron 5 today. I had it and the Retro Freak hooked up for about a year now. It was a little excessive. Now I have space under my TV to get a Xbox One X!!!!!!!

I love my One X. I've been playing Legend most of the day since about 11 or noon. Using a Genesis controller is nice because I just set fast forward to the C button and that's saved me a good bit of time when money grinding.

Recently I (finally) came into a copy of the first Lufia on SNES and holy moly it's a fantastic game. It's honestly in the running for my favorite SNES RPG, haha

Oh man, how many have you played? Wait until you get a load of Chrono Trigger, FFVI, and hell, Lufia II.

I love Lufia, but I'd definitely call it a "B-list" SNES JRPG, all things considered. At about the same level as the first Breath of Fire.

Leynos 2 was pretty damn hard but really cool still. I should try beating it again.

Just out of curiosity, is this a replay? It's been quite a while since I've played it so I can't quite remember the specific level, but the large scale mech battle in this game (you'll definitely know it when you see it), is my absolute favorite battle segment in any mech themed game (bearing in mind of course that I'm not huge into strategy games of which I'm sure there are many good mech battles). It's definitely one of those segments where Kojima & Co. outdid themselves. For the longest time I had a PS2 memory card slot designated specifically to that level so I could load it up whenever.

Sorta a replay as the first time I played for a little while but never got far. I'm only about an hour in so no huge battles yet. (also not affected by spoilers so no worries) I lok forward to it now! Outside of MGR I don't care for Metal Gear and not that interested in Death Stranding (tho the music sounds great) I wish Kojima would make more games like Snatcher/Policenauts or Zoe again. On the plus side, there is Liberation Maiden on 3DS which is sorta like ZOE. I don't know why but Ranger X kinda feels like a 2D ZOE. Gah that's another one I should replay in my mecha phase.
