Re: Video games! What have you been playing?

Since last I posted, I 100%ed MaGMML2. The Noble Nickel rewards kept feeling quite rewarding once I actually achieved them (if not during the two long dry spells before the last two rewards), though I'm wondering why the 170-Nickel reward was only made available to two of the costumes. The various c...

Just a few levels into Tier 8 of MaGMML2, I'm finding it really neat overall. The weapons they chose really are a nice selection (the Flash Stopper and Jewel Satellite in particular have turned out to be pretty versatile as weapons you can just use on regular enemies--or, in the case of a certain Ti...
