Conquered the first two bosses and I'm Lvl 56 at the moment. Equipment wise I'm rocking the silver set (should probably upgrade) blood cape and the double jump bracer + life drain bracer. I've molded a very much tank character with high HP + Dmg and my favorite class thus far is either Hokage or Paladin, but Miner is great for gold farming.I'm Lvl 90 something and haven't even attempted the second boss. Not sure why, I could probably easily take him out at this point. I'm using a lot of blood armour and runes, enough for 11hp per kill anyway. Lich and Hokage are my favourites.
Just took down the final boss at Lvl 96,
I adventured a bit too much grinding I think than what was required, the game is easily beatable at much much lower levels. Kinda just wanted to find awesome gear for NG+ though and did manage some solid pickups.
Fun game, although I won't be doing another playthrough anytime soon, I'm glad I experienced what Rogue Legacy had to offer. Looking forward to Cellar Door Games future releases definitely.
Finished Final Fantasy (Origins-PS1) using my Knight/Monk/Red Mage/White Mage party. I had forgotten the god awful high encounter rate the game suffers from, was still enjoyable to relive the classic though. Monks in the late game are so broken and overpowered; I casted Haste, used the Giant's gloves effect on him (Sabre +Att and Acc) and further boosted him with the Steel spell and he was hitting 12+ hits per turn for like 1400 dmg on Chaos. Killing the final boss in three turns is a huge disappointment (I was on Normal mode) and I kinda feel like searching for a hard mode difficulty mod. My backlog beckons though so, I'll be moving onto either Grandia or Valkyrie Profile.
Finished Breath of Fire III and god damn I love that game man. The final fight with Teepo in his dragon form has such an amazing atmosphere to the fight and is probably the toughest boss in the game. (more so that Myria even) The dragon transformations in 3 are the best the series has to offer, with tons of customization in your gene choice and porving to be useful without being overpowered. (Breath of Fire has brokenly strong dragon forms, Breath of Fire II they were borderline useless and III struck a fine balance for sure)
Rei's weretiger form is so badass and Nina can really dish out that heavy magic damage. Ryu/Nina/Rei is easily my favorite setup (Onion dude has too low def, Momo has no usefull innate skills and Garr is just a tank -although a cool one)
THE BROOD AWAKENS
For those wondering, like six months ago I went crazy and bought like fifteen psone titles and have been playing catchup, tis why all I'm playing is classic rpgs
Did take a break and gave Cube World a go. It caters more to the action rpg audience with a minecraft aesthetic, I don't see it going huge like Terraria or Minecraft though. I noticed balancing issues and after the initial impressions (maybe ten-twenty hours of exploration) it only offers grind. Highly suggest multi-player because single player is boring as tits.
Which reminds me I'm looking forward to the Terraria update 1.2 and the loads of new content. Supposedly there will be new building materials, a few new biomes, equipment tiers, new enemies, four new bosses and other goodies.
Excited to jump into Valkyrie profile, I heavily enjoy the mythos, art style, etc in many ways it's Enix's equivalent to Square's Vagrant Story. (which I've put on hiatus for the time being) Arngrim with his huge fucking sword, you think Cloud has a massive slab of steel? Hah don't make me laugh. The combo system I recall (haven't played it in like ten years) gave the battle system an action rpg hint of flair which I haven't seen duplicated other than the game's sequel.
Having a hankering to replay some old school horror games, thinking either System Shock 2 or Fatal Frame Crimson Butterfly next weekend. Hell, probably go ahead and download both.

I've had some free time recently, so I've been playing through some Steam games I've collected over the years.
I just finished F.E.A.R. last week. Man that was a fun game, definitely one of my favorite FPS now. I've moved onto The Witcher which really surprised me how much I like it. I'm close to finishing chapter 2 so I got a ways to go with that. I also picked up The Witcher 2 on GOG when it was on sale so I have that lined up too.Oh dude the first FEAR is freaking amazing. Back in the day, I thought the ai for the enemies were really good. I also liked the little bits of horror here and there.
Yeah, FEAR came out around a sort of peak when Japanese psychological horror films were being brought over to the U.S. and Alma oozes tension in her very presence. Great game, I always respect when devs take First Person Shooters and focus the gameplay in other directions rather than constant action.
Other scary games I have played and can recommend:
Going for lesser known titles
Penumbra (Amnesia was the successor)
Thief 3- Into the Cradle level
The Path (PC
Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi
Rule of Rose
The White Chamber
Call of Cthulhu
System Shock 2
Fatal Frame (specifically 2+4
Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines
Gonna kick myself later when I realize some I've forgotten...
