Your elephant ear is fine. Just bring it inside and wait until the leaves completely dry out. Then trim them off and dig up the bulb. Wrap it in newspaper and store it somewhere cool(ish) and dry for the winter. Don’t leave the bulb in the pot, or it will rot.   Read more

Skipped last year, because low funds and low moods, but why not jump back in this year. I'm in. :D

He beat it in an hour and a half?   I’m calling bullcrap on that.

Zelda is my favorite franchise and I’ve never played this title.  I played the nes original and ocarina of time.  I’m stuck on a dungeon that have spent hours on instead of looking up the guide and got burnt out.  I will return soon, though!

Sorry about my Yo-Kai oversight in your intro but I just tout that game any chance I get.

I could see Ash being a Gotham City villain. Singular focus. Lifetime of failure. Not the weirdest gimmick Batman has faced. I’m ready for this cross over.

Dragon Warrior Monsters (not Joker!) are such good games. I was so disappointed the Joker games were not really fun at all. Read more

I wonder if the Steam game Moe-kuri would count. Technically you’re capturing girl anime girls named after mythological creatures, and it is an SRPG like Final Fantasy Tactics, but it is still pretty deep. I greatly enjoyed the game though it could have been a bit harder (beat the story in just a few sittings), but it Read more

Dragon quest did it before Pokemon with DQ5. Also, Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker, and DQMJ 2 was released in the States on the DS. My older boys and I have dumped about 300 hours each into those two games combined. Read more

I only heard about Dragon Warrior Monsters late last year maybe and I REALLY want to play it, seems right up my alley. I hate to go the route of ROMs but I may have to on a game that old and obscure. Read more

Jade Cocoon 1 and 2 were favorites from my childhood. I still use the name Levant for an occasional DnD character. Read more

Monster Rancher was the bomb. My friends made fun of me for buying it, but they ended up playing it.

I might have to check that mobile version out. Maybe you’ll scan QR codes?

Don’t forget about Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker and its sequel, which did release in the US but returned to the DQ name despite being in the same series as Dragon Warrior Monsters.

Funny enough nothing’s ever come close to earning my love for monster collecting games outside of Jade Cocoon, Dragon Warrior Monsters, and yes I’m going to cheat and kinda count Chaos Legion. Read more

The first Ni no Kuni had creature collecting as well. They were so cute too. You can see the Ghibli influence in the designs, like Toko looks like a little Totoro.

I loved that small little boom of monster collecting series after Pokemon really took off. 11 year old me was in heaven between Pokemon, Digimon, and Monster Rancher. Read more
