This game ended so abruptly, or maybe I just expected more?  It’s funny because the end was clearly advertised.  A guy who used to be a good person merges with a monster and you fight them in multiple stages with epic music in the background.  Standard Squeenix stuff.  I don’t know why I didn’t realize that was the end.  I might have been waiting for a part I recalled from the demo to show up but it didn’t?  Either way I made the wrong choice and got the bad ending lol.  So I went back and picked up everything I missed.  I have to do the final battle gain and make the choice I know I should’ve made.

I’m closing in on the end.  Well I’m about to face the penultimate boss then there will hopefully be some more side quests afterwards.  I randomly found one after finishing up a big mission with the Crystals involving me essentially going to hell and beating up the devil.  Afterwards, it took me forever to find the last treasure chest when it was literally right near the beginning of the dungeon.

I knew I’d love this from the first demo.  Octopath Traveler (which I’m hoping has a sequel in the works soon) was the first game to introduce me to the brave/default system, since I only played a little of the first game in the series.

What I DNF’d

  • What Remains of Edith Finch – I honestly almost forgot I’d started playing this then stopped.  Not because I don’t like it, but I thought I hadn’t reviewed it based on the LP I watched, but I did.  I don’t have any issue replaying a game, but with so many on my backlog, I figured I’d move on to something else.

What I’m Playing

Title: GRIS
System: Nintendo Switch

Cover of GRISDate Started: 2/4/21

I remember either reading or talking to Kim of Later Levels about this, and I’ve had it not only on my backlog but my Switch itself for a while.  I figure it’s a good game to play for 4 in February.  It’s absolutely gorgeous with an aesthetic that reminds me of Child of Light’s watercolor graphics and fluidity.

What I Purchased

  • Picross S4 – $9.99 @ Nintendo eShop
  • Just Dance 2020 – $39.99 @ Nintendo eShop
  • Picross S – $7.99 @ Nintendo eShop
  • Picross S3 – $9.99 @ Nintendo eShop
  • The House of da Vinci – $4.99 @ Amazon

So many Picross games.  I love Pic-a-Pix and this is pretty much the game Pic-a-Pix is based on so it was an easy sell.  I think I actually like it a little better than Pic-a-Pix, and I especially love the color puzzles.  I’ve gotten used to the Mega Picross puzzles after a fashion.  I’m just hoping they have DLCs for this, too, since eventually I’m going to run out of them.  The House of da Vinci 2 is similar to The Room, so if you like that, you’ll more than likely enjoy this.
