A weekly post updated every other Tuesday 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 Bought

  • Nier Automata – $23.99 @ Best Buy – I returned my extra copy of Jurassic World: Evolution for store credit, and I still have around $30 left to play around with.  Not sure what else I’m going to buy.  I might grab a Switch GC or something since BB only sells games for the latest systems (PS4, Xbone, and Switch).  Give me your best suggestions on what I should spend my credit on!

What I Finished

Title: Octopath Traveler
System: Nintendo Switch

Octopath Traveler coverDate Started: August 11, 2018
Date Finished: January 12, 2019
Play Duration: 154

While I didn’t fully “finish” the game aka I didn’t beat the “true” final boss, I still completely everyone’s chapters, and I’m satisfied with that.  I watched a tutorial on that last big battle and I decided “nah.”  It was way too involved, and I’d already left my Switch on overnight because there’s a boss rush right before it and no save.  The boss rush isn’t hard if you’re in the high 60’s/low 70’s for level like I was, but still.  I’m more than happy with what I got out of the game.  I’m hoping they’ll add more content, because there’s still plenty of map that needs to be filled out.

A weekly post updated every Tuesday detailing my current gaming projects.  I have quite a backlog of games to either play or watch, and I’m hoping a weekly article will assist with my progress as my other accountable posts have done with reading and writing.  I have an account at Grouvee, which is a essentially Goodreads for gamers, so please feel free to friend me there!

Progress: Chapter 2 – Next Mission (finally)

I finished all the leveling last Friday, and I’m finally back in the game!  I had 1 day and 4 hours left to kill (in game) before my next mission, and that went by really quickly  Doing certain things eats up hours, and leaving the school for any reason drops you down three.  I took a task in Corsi Cave to find something called a Pretty Pelt for someone in the Armory, and within the environs I found a girl whose boyfriend had been turned into a frog.  Unfortunate.  According to what I googled, I can’t do anything for her at the moment, but apparently, she shows up randomly, and you can perform tasks for her.  I also found one of those tags for the moogle who’s looking for them.  Oh!  Speaking of moogles, they’re all wearing costumes!!  I guess it’s for Halloween so the game must have some internal mechanism for knowing what time of the year it is.  It’s really cute.  The last thing I did before Mission Day was accept an invite to this creepy scientist’s lab…where, for lack of a better term, I was immediately roofied…twice.  Thankfully, nothing bad happened (that I know of…) and I received a mega-ether out of the deal.
