At my best I could never hope to beat any of the Ace Attorney games, my attention to detail sucks since I actually have ADD.

I beat Sekiro!  Finally. I was expecting the final life of the final boss to be a lot different and take me a lot longer, but it was pretty close to his previous life with just a couple new moves that I already knew how to counter (He has four lives total).  So once I got the hang of the second to last form and was able to beat it I was able to beat the final form on my third time reaching it.

Ultimately I think the Demon of Hatred was harder than the final boss.  He was just so different than the other bosses in the game, and you couldn't counter his unblockable moves, only dodge them.  Much more like a Souls boss than a normal Sekiro boss.

I'm glad one of us did. The whole business with my father's death has kept me from getting back to it. I did finally find a bunch more Gourd Seeds. I think I had 3 or 4 at Lady Butterfly, and when I stopped at Gennichiro I had 8. Did the game seem back loaded to you, or is it just taking me an inordinately long time to find the major boss fights? Plenty of mini-bosses though.

There aren’t a ton of major boss fights. There are only ten that I can think of off the top of my head, and one was a repeat. (There’s another repeat, but it’s optional so I didn’t include it).  But yeah, I guess there were a few more towards the end vs the beginning. It’s mostly mini bosses though.

I finished Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest. Between Awakening, Fire Emblem heroes, Birthright, Fates and Revelations I've technically finished five Fire Emblem games. Of course to be fair that's only because their easiest difficulty is practically pushover. However, on Fire Emblem Heroes I was still able to beat the game on lunatic difficulty. However, acquiring everything in that game would probably take oh, I don't know, forever.

I'm coincidentally THIS close to beating Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon for the DS. These last few chapters are doozies, though. It would be pretty easy if I were willing to let some of my characters die, but that's just not how I play Fire Emblem. Shadow Dragon is interesting because you only get paralogues if you've let a bunch of your heroes die. There are characters you can only get if a certain number of your team is dead. I guess it's to keep you from being too underpowered toward the end, but the end result is that I'm playing less of the game than I would if I sucked.

I'm still working on Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. That game... is a beast. The game has an exceptionally high difficulty level when it comes to boss levels and castles. Here's the problem I'm having, in this game certain enemies can keep spawning enemies for you to face off against, and when you can't summon anything with nearly the same amount of power, it's basically either a stalemate or you lose before the battle even begins.

I just beat Steamworld Dig 1. And I got past a point that I couldn't pass a while ago in Steamworld Dig 2, so I'm playing that again as well!

Played most of Steamworld Dig 2. I got stuck near the end (at least I think I was near the end).

Trying to finish up The Messenger. The last (I hope) area is proving to be a gigantic spiked pain in the ass  >:(

I got stuck on what I think is the final boss in SD2, so I'm out powering up, however I haven't picked it up in a few weeks due to playing The Messenger as well. I'm less than halfway into it (because I know there's some kind of reveal, though I don't know what yet) but I might be too much of a baby to do it.

Having said that, I played it handheld for the first time last night, and it was so much easier. :P
FINE

If the part where you are stuck is the same part where I was stuck, I can reveal to you that

Ummm… I kind of beat Bloodstained Ritual of the night kind of? I did beat the game but I got the bad ending.  :o Hey its better than nothing! With a lot of games I've played I rarely if ever get anywhere near the halfway point.

Better than nothing :) I'm still working on it. Been kind of distracted since it's SGDQ week. Plus, I'm still trying to make up all the progress I lost in Sekiro.

So did I, but I think with Igavanias, "bad" endings don't count.

Okay, I beat Bloodstained: Ritual of the night, this time with the legit, good ending. I got just about every shard(at least, the most awesome ones). There's a part near the end where if you meet all the conditions, you can fight the Librarian vampire OD. If you beat him you get the ability to stop time! This is awesome because towards the end of the game there's a footrace with a Ninja, and it is kind of really hard if you don't have all the right stuff equipped. Anyway I just exercised some cheap yet clever tactics... I stopped time for as long as my MP bar would last and that SOB Ninja didn't stand a chance! When he got to the finish line, he just fell down, died, and left me his shard which basically lets you run at light speed... which is effing awesome!!!
