What I Purchased

  • Calico – $11.99 @ Nintendo eShop
  • What Remains of Edith Finch – $5.99 @ Nintendo eShop
  • Final Fantasy IX – $10.49 @ Nintendo eShop

One of my friends reminded me about Calico on Facebook, and I immediately went to check it out/buy it.  The graphics are…a bit rough, and the controls are a little weird, but who gives a fuck YOU GET TO PET ALL THE ANIMALS.

I’ve seen What Remains of Edith Finch (it’s actually how I found about about The King in Yellow from a book on the grandmother’s shelf), but it was hard to turn down a copy for such a low price.  Plus I do like to both play and watch a game before I review it, and I’ve seen both it and some of the analyses of the same.  With those in mind, I want to go through it again.  Plus, it’s just an excellent game.

Snagging FFIX for the Switch has always been a planned move, and it was half off for year end so I just went with it.

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.

Actually played some of this these past two weeks.  I got a chance to take on Harpuia, the 4th Stratum boss, and it wasn’t as bad as I thought.  Oh, I didn’t beat her or anything like that lol, but I’m seeing the beginnings of a strategy.  The biggest issue is the Glowbirds that come to her aid.  They’re 4th Stratum FOEs and they make things more complicated.  They have no elemental weakness, but they really only have one attack that they need a turn to charge up for.  If you don’t do something about it, the attack will hit all of your characters hard, but you can either throw a Blast Grenade to stop them or bind their heads if you can.  I’m wondering if I can just take them out before fighting the boss or if they’ll show up no matter what.  Either way, I think I want to level my characters up to level 50.  I watched a little bit of a video of someone taking her on, and that’s where they were.  I’m at level 49 so I don’t have that far to go, and I can fight Glowbirds or those rhino FOEs.  I might even take on those annoying frogs that follow you around lol.

Title: World of Final Fantasy Maxima

System: Nintendo Switch

Date Finished: 11/27/20

I beat the game, but there’s a lot of after-game content to finish up.  They actually added even more with an extra dungeon in the Girl’s Tearoom, another one at the top of the Crystal Tower after you do all of the Tearoom dungeons, some weird void at the bottom of the fore mentioned tower, which leads to some major boss battle that requires six broken seals.

Yikes…I haven’t played this in the past two weeks again.  I need to watch a video of someone beating Harpuia so I have an idea of what I need to do.
