It takes a lot of getting used to, to say the least. The combat and boss fights are pretty good, but the dungeons are just so damned dull. The characters take time to shine, but most of them seem to at least once. I kinda hate how some of the Sinistrals personalities are changed from Lufia II, but it works pretty well in a few cases.
Going after Whathisname Shaia at the moment.
Warning: thumbnails might not be dobby for work, oh my brothers!
The great music is what saved me from the dull dungeons I had to get used to those too. Yeah, it does take a lot of getting used to. Also, I find it odd how at times it seems to be the most light hearted take on the sinistral story, and then at times it's the complete opposite I mean, sometimes they act like idiots, and then other times they kill and terrorize more than ever. I guess the former helps to keep the latter more exciting and unexpected.

Neutopia II - PCE After playing Zelda 1 for FDS recently, I got hungry for more similiar action. Of course I chose the most extreme Zelda clone ever - Neutopia. This game is a lot of fun, and it looks really good. I can never get enough of this soundtrack, either. I just wish I had the English game. But no matter! This isn't exactly a story-heavy game. And what little story there is isn't interesting.
Star Tropics II - NES This game was not quite as awesome as I remembered it, but still a whole lot better than most games I have played. Damn this is good, but the soundtrack is nowhere near as good as in the first game. Nor is the level design. Two flaws. Oh wait, three. The controls are rather painful! Well, it's really fun to play and I guess that's the most important aspect.
Kirby Mouse Attack - DS Great platformer!! I started playing this some months ago but thought it was rather boring. But now! Now I'm hooked! This game is awesome-tastic. I've always liked the Kirby formula, except for the flying part. Now I have to get Kirby's Adventure for NES/FC.

Currently playing: Dragon Force - I like the system but I don't think I am gonna play every scenario for this game. Too bad that this webiste (http://rpg-home.lunar-net.com/choose.htm) no longer has a place for it. Does anyone know the website dedicated to this game?

Wait, Sel playing a DS?? Will wonders never cease!
Seriously, I gotta finish Lufia for GBC, it's been a couple years, it was just so boring in comparison to the first 2.
Playing Wild Arms Alter Code F, pretty cool, seems easier then the original, but, then again, I haven't played the original in 10 years. I wish there was voice acting in the US version, that would've been nice.
Also playing Mega Man ZX Advent. Not sure if I like it more, or less then the 1st one. The only thing I really didn't like about the 1st was the map, which was fixed for this, but I don't like the Hunter's Camp in this, & still deciding.
Also playing, but haven't played lately, Ys Origin Hugo, Popful Mail for PCE, Legend of Heroes 2 for PCE, Transformers for PS2........there's plenty more that I'm in the middle of, but, it's been years since I played them, so, I won't list em'.
Lufia TLR downright annoyed me the first time I tried it. I just couldn't get used to it, and that really pissed me off since the first two were two of my most favorite games. Eventually Ruins of Lore came out on GBA and it was so much more familiar and enjoyable off the bat. Thankfully I decided to go back and try again to stick with the game and finish it. I ended up really enjoying it and it's just under Lufia atFoD for me now. Even though I would kill to see the game remade with Lufia II's gameplay and level design, I respect N-land for always trying to do something different with their games. I still think it's an amazing achievement for a GBC RPG, at least in presentation.
Oh yeah, I just picked up Link's Crossbow Training. I wasn't going to at first but the zapper attachment and a game for $15 was just too sweet a deal. It's actually very fun, at least for someone who likes arcadey games like me. And It's Zelda-related to boot!
