Just started playing Etrian Odyssey and Gradius III. And both are kind of kicking my butt. I seem to remember being decent at the latter’s predecessor, and finding its initial levels routine; not sure how much of my troubles are that the sequel may be harder, how much are due to my declining powers, and how much are that I need to memorize where every enemy enters the screen before the game will click.

As far as the former game goes, not sure exactly when I’ll get good enough to beat the tough monster at the start of the third level of the dungeon. Having enough fun right now leveling up characters from all the different classes, though, to maximize my options.

Happy with both purchases for now.
