A weekly post updated every other Thursday detailing my current gaming projects. I have an account at Grouvee, which is a site you can use to keep track of your backlog, so please feel free to friend me there!
What I’m Playing
Title: Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl
Series Title: Etrian Odyssey
System: Nintendo 3DS
So I kind of finished this! I beat the final boss, which was actually easier than some of the optional bosses, but there’s still more game to go. There’s a final floor of the labyrinth to complete, and I could challenge the final boss again once I reach the bottom in a harder battle. I’m not sure if I’m going to do that. I might just finish up mapping the labyrinth and doing all of the quests before I call it a game. I’m currently trying to beat this lightning dragon, but I’m just not taking off enough HP per turn and eventually I run out of TP (the game’s magic point system), and none of the restoratives restore enough. Like I said, this game is much harder than my Final Fantasy fare, but I like the problem solving opportunities it presents. I wound up switching my main character back to a Highlander after watching a bit of a video on that fore mentioned dragon, since they were using techniques only a Highlander has and KILLING it, so I need to level my guy up again, possibly rest my Protector so I can put skill points into Volt Wall, and then see what Grimoire Stones I can mess around with.
Title: Final Fantasy VI
Series Title: Final Fantasy
System: PlayStation 3 (Port)
…I have to be honest with you guys. I love this game like I seriously love it, but I’m right at the part with the Floating Continent, and I just don’t feel like playing anymore. After that is of course the World of Ruin, and I’m just…idk, I just don’t feel like doing it. I could still review it of course in an essay like fashion, talk about the gameplay and whatnot, but I’m just not interested in finishing. Maybe because I really want to replay VII before the Remake drops in 2020, or maybe because I really want to play the remaster of FFVIII, but yeah, I think I might call it a game, write my review, and (possibly) stream/record myself if I can figure that out since it would be oh so appropriate for my first stream/LP to be FFVII.
What I Played
- Pic-a-Pix Deluxe
- Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time – I’m just all about comfort LPs now. Probably gonna watch Paper Jam and Bowser’s Inside Story again afterwards. Hell, maybe I’ll do a rewatch of Super Paper Mario, since that’s the one and only Mario game/RPG to make me legit cry.
I have no idea what game I’m going to play next after I finish EOU. I usually try to play one console and one handheld, so I might see about playing one of the many games I have on Steam or just my PC alongside whatever Switch or 3DS I grab while I’m writing the FFVI review essay. I do still have that Ace Attorney/Edgeworth game to play for the 3DS, not to mention the anime to watch.
So how many games have you completed so far this year?
