What I Played

Title: Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius
Series: Final Fantasy
System: Android (Kindle)

Final Fantasy: Brave ExviusThis counts as a “What I Played” in terms of I played it for maybe twenty minutes the other day.  I’d love to keep up with this daily since you’re given rewards every time you log on, and it would be easier to keep up with the story, but I just don’t.  There are still a bunch of characters I haven’t found yet, and I know this because on some of the expeditions you need to have a particular one, and alas, I do not.

What I Played

Title: Thimbleweed Park
Developer: Terrible Toybox
System: Nintendo Switch

Thimbleweed Park coverI should’ve mentioned this game last time, since I started playing it about two weeks ago.  I’m greatly enjoying the humor of it, and I love Agent Reyes’ sarcasm.  I do find it funny that the two agents have similar names.  Initially, I kept switching between the two to make sure they were in the same place, but then I stopped when I realized I didn’t have to.  I just finished the flashback with Delores, the game programmer, and I have a lot more things on my checklist to do.
