I've started a run of Persona 5 Royal. I'm here just for the added material and pretty graphics, so I'm playing it on easy,

We've been using this mod, which is somewhat lightweight despite the gigantic card pool, as card images are only downloaded (from pkmncards.com) when required. The only issue I've noticed is that the Search menu will occasionally show the wrong images for the cards. This is usually fixed by closing and re-opening it.I love me some retro Pokemon TCG. Interesting to read about your meta -- for us, it was definitely similar in most respects, but some of those threats were just not part of our meta. Ditto in particular is not a card I ever saw. But big basics were definitely king of the heap.
I stopped playing a little after the Team Rocket expansion, so the formats you're discussing are the ones with which I'm most familiar. Maybe I'll have to check out the TTS mods. Is there one you recommend?
Toki Tori 2, one of the all-time great puzzle-platformers and search-actioners, was (and still is!) on sale on the Switch for a mere $2, so I snapped that up.
As a puzzle-platformer, Toki Tori 2 has the really clever idea where Toki Tori can do very little by itself (just whistle and stomp), but can use those to direct and manipulate the creatures and environment around it, and create paths forward that way. But the real genius of the game is how this concept is adapted to a search action structure. Toki Tori, the avatar, never acquires any new abilities— the player simply learns new ways to read the environment and apply their abilities. So, progress is effectively gated only by one's own knowledge… meaning an observant player can break from the intended path with ease.
And since I'm replaying the game, I'm using my existing knowledge of the game to do just that. Turns out you can break sequence on the very first screen! I've already found my way to one of the five macguffins by heading this way, and I'm excited to see just how wide open this game can get.
It’s been about 20 years since the last time I played Lufia 2 and wow, I remembered enjoying it but I had forgotten how good it really is!
This games got some of, if not the best dungeon design I’ve ever seen in an RPG, and the localization is shockingly solid for a game of this enviroment
Now, I have already run across a fair few weird bugs, but nothing ruinous as of yet. Those are end game things.
