Selling old games has become rather lucrative in the last few years.

Just discovered there is 20 odd Nier:A fics on AO3. I had initially thought there were none looking on FF.net

Definitely going to be writing in this fandom when I finish all of the endings.

Danganronpa 1&2 out on the PS4 store, very close to picking it up over Mass Effect when I noticed.

Comparing to buying online some were cheaper others slightly more expensive, but that doesn't include postage. Overall pretty impressive little stall with a good selection, could of easily dropped another $500 but I was mainly interested in the RPGs when I was looking.
Huh, got most of those(including all of the big-ticket ones, except for Secret of Evermore) sitting in the hall closet. Well, also other 'high-value' ones like FF3(6) and Chrono Trigger, among others.

On the one hand, I can recognize that they are valuable, and I'll likely never play them again(or I can just whip out an emulator if I did want to anyway). On the other hand, I've had them for over twenty years and they still work. Including the console sitting there with them.

A game I found suprisingly valuable was Conkers Bad Fur Day. Average cost is $200AU. I love my copy and wouldn't part with it, but I didn't think of it as rare (No pun intended.)

The bloke who ran the stall said it wasn't that hard to find, just that people who owned a copy don't really want to sell.

I already own Chrono but would of loved a copy of FFVI, unfortunately they had none at the time, that and Castlevania. He said just check in his always getting copies they just don't hang around for long.

Dude, NieR is fucking hard. It's so brutal that the first level doesn't have a save point for so long.

You need to learn to counter (r2). The window is pretty generous, so nothing seriously punishing.

unless you're playing on the hardest difficulty. Fuck that noise.

I was burning through potions early on until I got used to the combat. I'm around 25 hours in now and having a blast.

XCOM?

If so, on a related note, just got back into XCOM 2, playing the Long War mod for this version of the game. Had some fun with the Long War mod for XCOM/Enemy Within, and noticed that they had released the version for 2.

Went several months into a campaign, then decided to start over with Ironman. Have to suffer properly, right? Also, I admit that I was abusing reloads far too often with my other campaign. Maybe I'll hit a middle ground, like how Invisible Inc. has difficulties which include how many one-turn rewinds you can do on a per-mission basis(1/3/5), and being able to restart entire missions on the easiest difficulty.
It would have to be self enforced in XCOM 2's case, but yeah.

On my fifth or sixth ironman campaign at the moment, after several false starts resulted in way too many losses in the first several missions. This one is almost two months in, and while a bit rough(lost six or seven rookies so far, but three were sacrificed for a good cause, at least), it's coming along decently-ish enough.

Yeah, EU. Finally chilling on my second viable Ironman Classic. Just passed a flawless base defense in mid-May. Casualties are now piling up a bit, and it vexes that I accidentally pressed 'esc' when France's terror mission came up, cause I'm so used to skipping cutscenes. I was a little behind satellite schedule for a perfect run, and now I'm going to lose England and Germany as well because Europe's my worst continent and I'm gunning for OTS.

Oh well. I'll play my first LW after I beat this run. Lost 3 vets before base defense hit, another ~4 mid-rankers in just one week after. Core majors and colonels are intact but bench is a little brittle and very imbalanced. Time to train up more rookies with LPRs on covert ops.
