46. Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil

This is better than DtP. The enemy and level variety, plus the adorable cast of Lolo and Poka make this a lot more enjoyable. There were still moments of frustration when trying to get 150 gems in certain stages, of course. My biggest issue was that Klonoa could only take three hits before losing a life and extras were really scarce.

I ordered Castlevania: Requiem from them back in February. Just the game itself and it's still in production. What irks me is not so much that it hasnt shipped yet but the fact that it hasn't shipped yet and through Best Buy, they have a listing to pre-order the game like what. They have too much going on and they can't seem to keep up

That's the same game I've been waiting on since January.

I too ordered a game from them in January. It went from "In Hand" back to "In Production" mysteriously. I don't know that I'll be buying from them again

Which game?

That's crazy that everything takes so long. It's telling if something from Play Asia arrives sooner than LRG.

45. Klonoa: Door to Phantomile

The game is adorable as can be, but man. Something about the controls just feels off. I feel like I need a second player at all times for the boost jump since, even with Klonoa's "double jump" he has the hardest time getting any air. I hope I have more fun with Klonoa 2. That was the first one I ever played.

I was going through old emails and completely forgot that I ordered a few things from LRG back in January! I'm trying not to be a Karen but what is the hold up?

44. DDR Max: Dance Dance Revolution

Today was a good day. So, I decided to dance about it. After going through nine songs it's clear that I'm very, VERY out of practice. Or my dance pad is janked. Or a combination of the two. Either way, it was fun to cut a rug for an hour.

43. .hack//G.U. Vol. 1//Rebirth

A really cool game and the start of what looks like will be a neat tale. The end of the game was indeed a cliffhanger, but I'm good holding off on the next volume for a few weeks while I play other things. I started the second volume just to convert my data, get a save file, etc. but I won't fully commit until later.

42. Omori

Too pretentious and artsy-fartsy to be enjoyable. I should have known that I wasn't going to like this. Combat was neat after a few hours, but the game just wouldn't get to the damn point - dangling the big reveal in front of me at every chance only to snatch it away and make me go through more BS. Oh well. It's always good to try new things.

41. Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman

I almost gave up after seeing how the last boss was insanely overpowered. I tried again, making sure to leave my equipment off and killing every enemy I came across so I could arrive to the tenth floor with a boost. When I got to the final floor, I equipped my gear, took down the enemies with remaining throwable items, got to the last boss, activated the speed boost, and went to town. Thank the gaming gods I had an auto-revive chip. Overall, cool game. While forgiving for a rogue-like, it still pulls the usual NISA bulls*** with it expecting the player to grind.

I did the same "deal" and so far it's been worth it. I sold the games I didn't want back and found something else I'd actually play. It's a sleek console.

40. Mega Man 3

Still a classic. Is it still my favorite, though? I'm not sure. I need to replay Mega Man 8 to find out.

39. Final Fantasy VII Remake INTERGRADE (aka Yuffie's Episode)

Yuffie's DLC was a lot of fun; more fun than I expected to have with a character I never really cared for in the original. The ending moments actually got me hyped for the next iteration. I just hope it's not years upon years before it gets released.

38. Yurukill: The Calumniation Games

This has been the biggest surprise of the year. I didn't think I would like this as much as I did. I zoomed through the VN parts because I wanted to see what happened next. I sped through the puzzles because they were simple and fun, but also so I could get to the shmup action. It all came together really nicely.

I wish there were a chef's kiss emoji on here. Phantasy Star IV is just that. *chef's kiss* So good - glad you enjoyed it again after all these years.

37. Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age

70 hours of classic (for better or worse) RPG adventuring. I'm not going to play through the third act - the game's ending after the second act was fine. It was a solid adventure from start to finish. If not for the tedious inventory management, then this would be near perfect.
