Whenever I get kind of stuck at a part, it makes it harder for me to get motivated to play it.  What I’m trying to say is I haven’t picked this up in the past two weeks.

Title: World of Final Fantasy Maxima
Series: Final Fantasy
System: Nintendo Switch

Date Finished: 11/27/20

Currently still grinding all of my Mirages up to completion.  Well…one of each type.  I usually will put on a let’s play or something while doing this since grinding is gaming busy work.  I want to do this before I tackle that fourth, aftergame dungeon.


What I Played

  • Golf Peaks – I finished the one puzzle I was stuck on, but I haven’t picked it up since.
  • AVICII Invector

What I Demoed

  • Picross S5 – I honestly haven’t picked up my Switch in a few days, so I had some news to go through.  Saw this one available as a demo and downloaded it.  I’ll probably pick it up this week.  It’s only $9.99

What I Watched

  • Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages (Olizandri) – This is what I’d been watching during the day while I’m working and also as background for grinding in WOFF.
  • Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (Olizandri) – Just finished this today.  I’ve been rewatching these because they’re comforting.  I’m probably going to watch his Link’s Awakening again next.  I usually think of these games as a trilogy, even though it’s only the Oracle ones that are literally linked.  Maybe because they’re all outsourced (I think Awakening is anyway…)
  • Man of Medan (ChristopherOdd) – Almost randomly started this to fulfill my “watch a new LP” needs.  I honestly forgot this was a sort of sequel to Until Dawn, which was a game I had on my list to play.  I may just watch a LP of it now considering all of the jump scars in Man of Medan hehe.  I’m really, really liking it.  The graphics are stellar, the characters are interesting, and the story is engaging.  I saw a few people in the comments complaining about the voice acting, but…that’s how people that age would talk.  It seems pretty realistic to me *shrug*  Will probably watch another episode after I post this.

Everyone and their mother (ha) has been tagging me in the Smash Bros. news over the past week because of course they have lol.  I actually just watched the trailer introducing Sephiroth yesterday.  I was under the impression the images I saw of him impaling Mario were fan made memes.  No, no they were not.  Sakurai also tweeted one of the Great General’s moves.  It’s…literally called “down-aeirith,” and, I quote, “it’ll kill you instantly so watch your back.”  I wish I were lying, but there was no chill to be had this day.  I’ve never played Smash Bros., and I don’t intend to buy it, but I wouldn’t be averse to going a few rounds it if I were so asked 😉
