The Facebook fan celebration of the Suikoden series is today, July 11, this year. July 11 was the Japanese release date of Suikoden 3. So I'm going to talk about why I love Suikoden 3 below.

So in short, I love Suikoden 3 because of its story and its way of presenting it. I still have a few things that could have made it better, but it's a serious treat for those into the Suikoden lore and especially those who played 1 and 2.
Happy May! It's already a week in but my plans are still a bit flexible. Will be going to a convention around Memorial Day weekend but otherwise I will have lots of time to game or do other things. I even wrote a little bit of fanfiction this weekend. It was weird :)

Anyway, I'm still following the RPGamer marathon so May is Persona 3 month. I only have the portable version so I am playing as the female protagonist this time. Surprisingly I have put in almost 25 hours in 6 days. Since I've made it to August already, I'm guessing this playthrough will be a bit shorter than the last one. Following a max social links guide and overall knowing what to do is making this a lot better than last time. Also, the girl has better social links and more of a personality overall. But mostly better social links.

My other main game for this month is Suikoden 3. I am continuing my slow-ish Suikoden marathon. Started playing as Hugo and got up to his Chapter 3. I always feel like I should start with Hugo for some reason. Unlike last time I am doing each character's chapters to the end before moving to the next. So far so good. It's been like 10 years since I played the game, and I feel like I had the exact same reaction to the end of Hugo's chapter 1. It's kind of funny, since this time I know what happened.

The other games below may or may not get any significant play time this month:
Lufia: Ruins of Lore (GBA)
The World Ends With You (DS)
Dark Cloud (PS2)
Shadow Hearts (PS2)

I really should finish off Ys II since I am more than halfway through that rather short game (not Ys I short but like 10-15 hours short), but I guess I felt pretty satisfied after beating Zava that I took a break. Need to get Ys 3 also done before Celceta shows up in the mail :)

Also, the PS3 has been ordered and shipped! I should be getting it this week. There's a low chance that I'll start up Tales of Graces f this month, but I will try to finish that game up sooner than later since Xillia will be here in August.

Ah, so many games, not enough time...
Oh, Suikoden III. There is so much I wish to do fanfic-wise with this game but I have only played it once and that was maybe 10 years ago? Which is why this following idea won't be written until I have replayed that game, because I've lost the feel for those characters.
