@Pr1mus: Based on my knowledge of the canon, this planned playthrough should work. The light gun games can fit into the story but I don't really consider them vital. Stick with what you have now, and if you feel you need to take a break or give any streaming viewers "a bonus" you can do some of the other games in the series.

Got off shift at 11:30pm PST Dec. 23rd, will be back at 3:30pm PST for Dec. 24th, and then for a short 4 hours on Dec. 25th. Also have Boxing Day (Dec. 26th) and New Years Eve/Day duty.
I hear that there is a holiday going on, it's news to me.
The problem, that is causing the other forum posters to jump down your throat, is that the thread isn't framed it as an 'FYI, this will lead to this'. It is framed as 'f this broken game! (rage)'. You misinterpreted the cheat warning, these things do happen. The English language leads to these issues often.
However, blaming the game for being linguistically ambiguous done not equate broken and is definitely not worth the title 'BROKEN EFFING CHEAT CODE BS BUGS'
Yes, I got caught in that Costume Quest bug (which is due to the save file) in which if you updated the game during a certain part of the game, the french fry costume will not work properly on the one individual you need it to work on. Never got fixed and never went back to it.
