I honestly don’t remember thereabouts when I finished this game, since I’m still playing it, but I did complete all 300 puzzles.  I’m hoping they release more in a DLC.  Until then I do random ones of the 300, and you can also do random colors, which can be hella hard.  I’ll probably do a review of this after I finish Oxenfree’s since this will be a breeze compared to that.

Piczle ColorsDate Started: January 31, 2019

I am obsessed with this game.  The only reason I’m not playing it right now is because I’m doing this, and my Switch is dead with the charger in the other room.  I do agree with some of the critiques presented by Mr. Panda in his video review.  Some of the colors are way too close in hue, and while I understand they did it to add depth to the harder finished pictures, it can cause some unnecessary errors and confusion.  Other than that, the game is ridiculously addictive.  I’ll tell myself, “One more puzzle,” complete it, and start the next one.  I’m going to be sad when I finish, but apparently there’s a randomizer you can use to still get some enjoyment out of the game once you’ve finished all of them.  I also may be the first person to review it on Grouvee since there’s not even a rating there yet o.O

The Sunshine Blogger Award #3

They say good things come in threes, and it’s hard to deny that when a spectacular blogger named Triform Trinity nominates you for a blogging award 😀 (I really didn’t plan that…it just worked out perfectly).  TT runs a blog full of gaming wisdom (he was wise enough to know you don’t mess with me when it comes to Sephiroth) and is also one of my near, dear Nintendo Switch friends.  I was worried it had been a really long time since I’d been nominated, but it’s only been a couple of months.  Go me!

Sunshine Blogger Award

I was presented with some very clever questions that I hope my answers of worthy of.

If you could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life what would it be? – Cake.  Ahhh I love cake so much.  It’s like my kryptonite lol.  Yellow cake with buttercream icing to be exact.  I’m great at parties…so long as those parties contain that type of cake.  If we’re talking about a non-dessert food, I’d have to say…probably pizza, because there are so many different varieties that you could always think of a way to spice it up so you’d never be bored.

Game with the best cut scenes.


You all know I have to say Final Fantasy VII, though it’s obviously not the only game with great cut scenes.  I’m not going to post the most famous cut scene in the land since the Remake is coming out…eventually, and amazingly, that scene is now spoiler territory again for those who didn’t play the first time around, but it occurred 20 years ago, and is still counted amongst the best and most shocking scenes in video game history.

All of the Final Fantasies have amazing cut scenes to be honest, ever since they started them in FFVII and even the ones added to older FFs are stellar.  I’m particularly fond of the opening to Final Fantasy IV.

And this one for FFVI always gives me chills.

For non-Final Fantasy there are too many in Mass Effect to count, especially Mass Effect 2.  I’m trying to remember what the name of the green skinned asari was, but she had a thing for Shepherd, and the look on her face when she made a bit of a pass at her was heartbreaking and beautiful.

Then of course there’s the cut scene in Twilight Princess when the eponymous Midna’s true form is revealed.

I was just as speechless as Link.

What’s your favorite cut scene?  Let me know in the comments, and yes, I accept links 😉

dawn-of-souls

I…don’t think I played this at all this week.  Last I remember was beating up Bikke and his pirate gang, and then planning to sail to Elfheim to grind for new gear and spells.  I might start doing a DS/GBA schedule like I have with my reading.  I was trying to play DoS and FFIV on alternating days, but it might be easier if I put it on my to-do list, since things are more likely to be done if that occurs.

Title: Final Fantasy IV

final-fantasy-iv

I’ve made quite a bit of progress on this, which is funny, because I’ve beaten FFIV, but never beating FFI, the DoS version or otherwise.  Logically, you’d think I’d focus on the path not traveled, but Taurus-logically, it actually makes more sense that I’m sticking to what I’m familiar with and greatly enjoy.

I finished up the a batch of side quests.  Final Fantasy IV has those in short supply, and really the only legitimate side quest is looting Eblan Castle (maybe collecting pink tails counts, too).  You have to visit Agart later in the story, but having access to the Enterprise just means you can go there sooner and get it on the map for easier access later.  Mythril is more of a locale to peruse because of the better equipment you can find there.

My next task lies in Troia then the Dark Elf’s Cave where Edward actually proves himself useful.

world-of-final-fantasy

This is pretty much what I’ve been spending all of my time on.  I took off Friday of last week and Monday of this (not just to play!  I had two days left, but I wouldn’t be ashamed of taking off work to play Final Fantasy and you know it lol) and spent pretty much the entire day playing WOFF.  I neglecting my responsibilities (e.g. working on my “Half a Tragedy” essay) and had a damn fun time dong so.

I found a really awesome tipster on YouTube EnterJayMent (who has some Final Fantasy XV videos up, too) and realized I’d missed a lot.  I had no idea there was Holy Dragon in Icicle Ridge, nor did I realize that the quests you complete in the Girl’s Tearoom opened up new Mirages: Princess Goblin and Undead Princess among two of them.

When I first started playing, like most, I was on a learning curve, and that initial arc didn’t realize that you can catch a Mirage as soon as you engage it in battle.  I thought you had to fight it first in order to obtain its prism then find it again in order to imprism it.  This is how I missed Yurugu(sp?) in the beginning (unless that’s just a tutorial and unimprisonable).  I also believed you had to have an empty space in the case you take with you, not knowing that after catching the new Mirage, there’d be an option to leave it with Serafie.  I also didn’t take advantage of all the Mirages you can catch in the coliseum; therefore, I didn’t have Chocobo or Valefor even though you can easily catch them early on there. Speaking of the coliseum, I manged to unlock and capture Ramuh and Adamantoise, though with the latter, you can find and imprism one while traveling through the channel on the Rainbow Coast, while riding on the back of the talking Adamantoise.  The Coliseum one was just easier (one try!)

I missed the Ghost Pirate ship puzzle on Saronia Docks with the Kupicaroon you can catch there and never knew that if you run around the secret spot in the Nether Nebula that Fritt (baby Ifrit) will eventually show up.  I still need to get Zapt (baby Ramuh), and I’d love to grab another Bablizz since I was able to transfigure the one I won from beating Shiva into Mishiva.  Having a medium and small Shiva/Ice based  Mirage would be bad ass.  I believe you can grab them later in the game, though there are a ton like the male Shiva, Shivalry, and the female Ifrit, Ifritta, whom you can’t ensnare until after the first ending (apparently like XV, there’s a lush after game to World).

I am finally caught up or as caught up as I’m going to be for now.  I’m just about to enter the dessert, so I foresee some cactuar hunting in the near future.  I’m going to try to catch two because I believe that’s what cactrots can transfigure into, and I still never found another one of those little guys in the Pyrefly Forest.

I’m really wondering though if there’s a way to get rid of extra Mirages.  I tried trading and failed miserably at it.  I have two Mandragoras and a Malboro.  Mandragoras transfigure into Malboros so it’s not like I need to keep one as it is and transfigure the other.  I suppose I could eventually have two Malboros, which would be fine, but I’d love to give it to some other needy gamer, and maybe get something in return.  Apparently, my trade didn’t go through because the Mirage I’d have received in return was of a lower level than mine???  I don’t know, and the internet hasn’t been very forthcoming with information.  There isn’t a lot on World yet, because people are still going through it and figuring it out.

I have found this site that has comprehensive information on Mirages as well as the Mirage “family” they belong to and this site that’s a continually updated Coliseum guide.  I like the info on the latter site, but it’s one of those that constantly runs (like many wikis), slowing down your computer.

Whew…so yeah.  Lots to say about WOFF.  I absolutely love it.  I’m enjoying the cameo appearances from all the characters, the references are nostalgically wonderful, and the puns are just great.  I love that Rydia hated and feared fire just like her character did in FFIV, her original game.  I love that Snow had the Shiva from his game FFXIII and used her to created ice bridges (also “Snow” “ice,” “puns”).  I love how Quistis had a similar boat to what the sEEDs used in FFVIII.  I love that Sephiroth summons Meteor, and I cannot tell you how much I love/appreciate the Japanese option with English subtitles.  It feels very anime like during cut scenes..

I’ll be playing again this Wednesday and hope to catch some good Mirages in the dessert.  My play pattern is generally do the next area then go back to the Tearoom and Coliseum to take care of what new quests and fights might have opened up.  I’m hoping “catch up” next time won’t take as long, since I now have some better resources.

Original Release Date: January 26, 2010
Let’s Player: Olizandri
Date Started: November 19, 2016

mass-effect-2

I’m getting into some creeptastic territory with this game.  I just watched the part where Shepherd and crew find the abandoned Collector ship and learn the truth about that species.  I also read a bit of a spoiler today when I googled “Who made the Reapers,” because I wanted to see some theories/speculation about that.  I wound up on Harbinger’s page, but stopped reading before I could spoil it too much.  I’d rather see it in game then read about it.  Since the Reapers are machines albeit sentient, I believe they could have a creator (this could become philosophical and theological for our own creation very quickly, and it also puts me in the mind of that episode of Futurama where the professor leaves the Earth because no one believes in evolution and winds up being the progenitor of a robot race, but now is not the time), and I wonder if it’s suppose to imply that eons ago, when they achieved sentience, they turned on their creators, killing them all to begin the cycle of purge and regrowth that’s been occurring since time immemorial.  It certainly paints a grim picture of limits or lack thereof of AI.

Olizandri, the irrepressible Let’s Player is doing a bunch of the DLCs right now, and I’m hoping he gets to more of the loyalty quests soon.  I want to see Jack’s and Grunt’s.  He just finished Jacob’s and wow, so fucked up what his father did.  I really like Jacob’s character, and I’m more cautiously curious about Miranda’s.

Also on my list of things I can’t look up is the Illusive Man.  I really want to know about his glowing, mechanical looking eyes, but I don’t want to have anything spoiled by looking that up.  If the story doesn’t reveal it, then I will.  I suspect it’s some kind of biotic.

I’m still hoping Wrex will show up again at some point.  While I like Jacob and think Jack is an unmitigated bad ass, there really hasn’t been a character I say hands down is my absolute favorite in this game.  Grunt is a krogan, too, but he doesn’t have the same sarcastic, get-shit-done attitude that Wrex was gloriously burdened with.

Title: Legend of Zelda
Series: Legend of Zelda
Genre: Action-Adventure/Puzzle
Developer: Nintendo
Original Platform(s): Nintendo Entertainment System
Original Release Date: February 21, 1986
Let’s Player: Hungry Goriya
Date Started: Unknown
Date Finished: Unknown

This is a Let’s Play by fellow blogger Hungrygoriya who is the queen of finding retro video games.  I was lucky enough to catch a bit of her playing Earthbound on Twitch a few weeks ago, and I’m hoping she does a full play through of that game for YouTube, as well, since then I and others will be able to watch the whole thing.

I don’t want to make her blush, but I have to mention that she has a great voice and attitude for Let’s Plays, and I think people underrate how important that is.  You want to watch and listen to someone you know cares about the game their playing, and for me personally, it’s not really a matter of getting it right the first time; it’s about how you act and react while you’re going through.  Her voice is super soothing, and I’m really impressed with how well she knows the land of Hyrule.  I’m terrible at direction and would probably need to be consulting a map the entire time.

I’d never seen the entirety of the very first Zelda game, and I’m happy to say that that’s under my belt, and I was able to accomplish it by watching a great Let’s Play.  I also now understand the “hungry goriya” reference!  I didn’t know that was an enemy in Zelda.  They’re called moblins now, and the “hungry” refers to one in a dungeon you have to feed before you can get through.  Old school games were fantastic for challenging your problem solving skills lol.

I also watched her play through of Super Mario Bros. 2, which I can’t believe I didn’t mention!  SMB2 was my first favorite game long years before FFVII ever existed, and it still holds a special place in my heart.


Games Added to Playlist: 2

  1. Final Fantasy Type-0
  2. Final Fantasy XV

Both of these were added because of Cheap Boss Attack.  You blogger friends are going to be the death of me!  Or rather the death of my time hehe.  CBA wrote a kick ass, spoiler free review of FFXV that convinced me I should at least give it a chance.  My biggest reluctance is due to Squeenix moving away from turn based, which I much prefer and love (it was a major draw for me to the Final Fantasy franchise) to more action based.  I was fine with the gambit system of FFXII, but I really don’t like this migration from strategy/turn based.  When I play an RPG, I want to play an RPG.  Sadly, this is the main reason I don’t play Mass Effect as much as I love it. Anyway, owing to the information that you can play FFXV on “easy” where Carbuncle will resurrect you if defeated, I might be able to handle that so I can see what all of the hype is about.  I still have some trepidation, but I don’t want to base my opinion on what’s come into my ken by hearsay.  I’d rather play it myself then read the critiques and decide if they align with how I took it.

The only convincing I needed for Type-0 is that is has a dark mien.  My Gothic heart is already drawn, and my wordsmith soul is trying to make a bad a bad pun using the word “typo.”  I’ll try not to keep you in suspenders.


Games Bought This Week: 1

  1. Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture – the Well-Red Mage informed not just me, but the world that there was yet another PSN sale, this one for the holidays.  I may have missed the lowest price of $5.99, but $8.99 for a game that’s the spiritual sequel to my arguably favorite modern title by The Chinese Room, Dear Esther, is a small price to pay.  Hm, I can’t find the original post on the blog, ,but I’m sure it was there!  Either that or the information just came to me through the Lifestream.  That would explain a lot.

What are you currently playing and/or watching? Is it something new or old?  Is it a first time run or a replay?  What’s the genre?  Would you recommend it?  What’s on your radar to play next?

Title: The Mabinogion Tetralogy
Author: Evangeline Walton
Date Added: August 24, 2014
Date Started: July 31, 2016

Medium: Paperback
Progress: 25%

One percentage at a time I’m conquering this mighty compendium, hopefully better than the Irish tried to quell the Island of the Mighty, which has been a major plot point of late.  I probably would’ve read less had not something huge and horrible happened at the end of one chapter involving Branwen and her son by Matholuch who’s a total jackass (Matholuch, not the son).  I don’t want to give too much a way in case you fine people ever decide to read the Tetrology yourself (which I highly recommend you do).

Title: The World of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and the Game of Thrones
Author: George R R Martin
Date Added: January 7, 2015
Date Started: February 8, 2015

Media: Hardback

I’m still in the (so-called) Free Cities just about to read about Pentos, which probably factors much into the plot of Thrones much more than many think.  It’s the current home of Magister Illyrio Mopatis, a man whose relationship to Varys casts a great deal of suspicion on his rotund form.  There’s a reason Illyrio’s beloved, deceased wife has such an intricate description.  The flames tell me so…

Title: Magonia
Series Title: Magonia
Author: Maria Dahvana Headley

Date Started: October 1, 2016

Media: Paperback
Progress: 39%

I’m back to being minorly annoyed by this book again.  I detest when characters ask more than reasonable questions and other characters see fit to assume the asking character should know the answer and then refuse to give it to them because of this assumption.  If they’re not giving the answer for other reasons then that’s fine, but the asking character is perfectly correct to be acting the way they are, and the other characters are almost gaslighting her for her behavior, and it’s both frustrating and annoying.

I had a moment with this book today.  Something happened that was really close to things I’ve been thinking about a lot (wow I’m being super vague I know, and it’s not just due to not wanting to give the plot away), but it’s something that’s not too unexpected given it’s a ghost story.  At least more of Rupert’s past has been revealed.

Books Added to Goodreads TBR List This Week: 11

Title: Soulless
Series Title: Parasol Protectorate
Author: Gail Carriger
Date Added: October 26, 2016

A lovely review by Ignited Moth prompted this add, plus I can’t resist good alliteration.  Then the premise itself is intriguing.  A soulless spinster is attacked by a vampire, which apparently breaks all rules of etiquette in this world.  Also one of my favorite authors Patrick Rothfuss also added it to his Goodreads list.  There’s wins all around.

Title: Lotus and Thorn
Author: Sara Wilson Etienne
Date Added: October 28, 2016

This is the second book based on the fairy tale Fitcher’s Brides I have on my list, the first being the titular rendition so linked.  This particular offering has a futuristic setting and a burning question of what really happened to old Earth.  It’s also recommended for fans of Tamora Pierce and Sarah Maas.  I’ve read the latter and have the former’s Throne of Glass on my TBR list.

Title: Double Dead
Series Title: Double Dead
Author: Chuck Wendig
Date Added: October 28, 2016

There are books about vampires.  There are books about zombies.  This is a book about both.  I’m utterly shocked that I’ve never seen one of those before.  How have the two types of undead never had a mixer?  It’s obscene.  Prompted by a review by Cupcakes and Machetes I had to add this for curiosity’s sake alone.  It appears to be a sort of gory humor novel in the same, er, vein as Evil Dead/Army of the Dead.  It sounds thoroughly enjoyable.

Title: The Diabolic
Author: S.J. Kincaid
Date Added: October 28, 2016

Who likes story’s about ruthless, powerful, and unstoppable protectors?  No guesses?  This Shameful Narcissist of course.  They’re the subject and co-protagonist of nearly every story I’ve written so I was ecstatic to see something like this being reviewed by fellow blogger and readaholic Kim at By Hook or By Book.  It’s also a standalone novel, which is rare in this day and age.  Not that I don’t love a good series, but there’s something to be said for an author who can say all they need to in one book.

Title: Alex + Ada
Series Title: Alex + Ada 1-5
Authors: Jonathon Luna & Sarah Vaughn
Date Added: October 28, 2016

Another comic is added to my list with this one, which fellow gaming blogger Cheap Boss Attack praised in his weekly weekend gaming post.  It sounds like a more serious version of Chobits, which I enjoyed (the little of it I saw).

Title: Faller
Author: Will McIntosh
Date Added: October 28, 2016

I know stories about mass amnesia or even just main characters with amnesia are cliche, but they’re still so intriguing.  You want to know what happened in their past and why they’re where they are.  This is the reason they endure.  Hell, one of my story ideas involves amnesia, so I’m not immune to the trope.  By Hook or By Book’s review certainly didn’t hinder my interest in this novel.  What do all of the clue’s Faller finds in his pocket mean and does his odd name have more significance than his leap of faith?

Title: The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia
Authors: Patrick Thorpe, Various Others, and Translators
Date Added: October 30, 2016

One of the fastest adds ever as I was scrolling through my Goodreads feed.  I’m already reading a fictional reference in The World of Ice and Fire, and I’d be more than happy to accept the quest of reading the history of Hyrule next.

Title: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Series: Harry Potter
Authors: J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, & John Tiffany
Date Added: October 30, 2016

I had this on my list then I removed it for a couple of reasons that I’m regretting at deeper thought.  One, I read a major spoiler.  I know who the eponymous cursed child is and why they are so.  Two, I read some scathing reviews that said, amongst other things, that it was little more than a fanfiction of Harry Potter.  It wasn’t the fanfiction part that bothered me (of course), but between the spoilers and the almost universal panning, I thought it might not be worth my time, but then after a conversation at the Halloween party I went to this weekend, I thought better of it.  People might be panning it because it’s essentially a fanfiction of HP due to fanfiction stigma, which is infuriating.  It’s even possible that they don’t realize this is the reason for their bias, and if the story were not based on Harry Potter, it might actual be enjoyable to them. Who knows, but that’s how biases often work.  So I figured I’d add it back so that I could read and judge for myself.  I don’t have that “this is fanfiction” bias (obviously) and should be able to give an impartial judgment.

Title: Firstlife
Series: Everlife
Author: Gena Showalter
Date Added: October 31, 2016

I came across the second book while scrolling through my Goodreads feed.  I won’t say I read a spoiler, rather an obvious eventuality.  This book sounds fascinating.  It’s an excepted truth that this life is merely a dress rehearsal before your second, true life, begins, and there are two realms where you could end up.  These kingdoms are rivals and they both want the main character Ten on their side.  Our heroine has been locked in an asylum for over a year because she refuses to allow her parents to decide where she’ll live after she dies.  There’s also a boy involved because this is a YA, and there’s always a love interest, but besides that, the life/death aspect of the story sounds hella interesting.

Title: Norse Mythology
Author: Neil Gaiman
Date Added: October 31, 2016

I’m shocked I didn’t have this added already.  As most of you know I love Norse Mythology and am very lucky that it is a centerpiece in so many of my fandoms (FFVII and ASOIAF to name two).  I’m also a late fan, but a fan nonetheless of Neil Gaiman.  He uses quit a bit of it in his stories and decided to go back to the source.

Title: Bird Box
Author: Josh Malerman
Date Added: November 2, 2016

“Something is out there, something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse of it, and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.”

When a blurb hooks you, it hooks you.  What is this thing that drives people to violence like Cthulhu drives you to madness?  What’s in the bird box?


Total Books on Goodreads TBR List: 514

I removed a bunch of Charles de Lint Newford books so that I only have one TBR from that series on my list.  When I read that one I’ll add the next.  I’ll probably go through my list at some point again to see if I have any other series I can cut down.
