A weekly post updated every other Thursday 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 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.

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!

Title: Final Fantasy V

Release Date: December 6, 1992
Date Purchased: Unknown
Date Started: June 17, 2017
Progress: Walz Castle
I’m still at Walz Castle, but I managed to loot the basement and snag myself 3000 GP and an Elf Cloak. That stupid harpy down there attacked me three or four times, but I was able to run away, though it killed/knocked out two of my characters. I attempted to fight/obtain Shiva, but she and her cohorts kicked my ass even though I took the advice on GameFAQS of switching everyone to a Black Mage and casting Ice. I’m going to do some leveling and give it another try. I might look up another walkthrough and see if there are any more tips, or I may just continue on to Walz Tower and come back for her later.
