The difficulty on this one is a lot easier.  Even story mode for some of the EO games can be brutal, but I would up taking down a boss I wasn’t really prepared for.  It’s possible I’m over-leveled, but I don’t think I am.


What I Watched

  • Olizandri
    • Final Fantasy IV (3D) – This version has just as many random encounters, though I think it’s a little less challenging than the SNES original, which was brutal.
  • CJUGames
    • Insomnis – Pretty disturbing game about human experimentation on orphans.

I still have around $40 on my Nintendo eShop gift card and I want to use it to buy Bravely Default, but there’s a problem: I don’t have enough room on my 3DS, and you can’t buy something unless you have enough space for it.  I can’t delete anything so I had to buy an SD card.  Another Nintendo issue is if you apply a gift card you have to use it.  There’s no option to choose another payment method.  Like on Amazon I have a GC applied, but if I want to use cash I can.  Nintendo doesn’t have the capability, so when I wanted to buy a little $7.99 game with PayPal, it would automatically take from my gift card when I want to save that for Bravely Default.  It’s…annoying.  Oh!  Also the SD slot for the New Nintendo 3DS XL is behind a screwed in panel.  They’re REALLY not making it easy.  I received a Switch SD for Christmas, but you can’t use those in the 3DS.  According to my Google search, you’re only supposed to use up to a 12 gig card on a 3DS (from Nintendo’s website), and the Switch one is a whooping 128 gigs!  The 3DS card was pretty cheap though at only around $15, so it’s not that big of a deal, just a minor inconvenience.

If they release Tales of Berseria on the Nintendo Switch any time in the near future, I will 100% buy it for that system so I can play it easily.
