What I’m Playing

I’m still not playing any story based game.  I’m sure I’ll pick something up soon, but I just haven’t had the emotional energy to dive in.  I’ve mostly been watching shows and working on the world-building for my book series, so I haven’t had a lot of time to spare.  I still want to play Voice of Cards, and once I finish the review for Final Fantasy VI, it’ll be time to (re)play Final Fantasy VII plus there are a bunch of releases for the Compilation coming out this year with the Crisis Core remaster and 2023 with the next installment of the Remake.

“What I’m Playing” might be a misnomer because I haven’t played anything in over a month.  I started watching Olizandri’s Let’s Play and I’m currently pretty far past the part I stopped at.  He was able to make the persuasion I failed, but I noticed he used Erador in battle almost every time.  I also realized I misinterpreted certain moves and could’ve been doing a lot more, but there were some weird translations for all the game is decently written and pretty well voiced.

Peeps…I may DNF this one and I feel really bad about that because I honestly like it, but I haven’t felt the motivation to play in weeks.  That failed persuasion really bothers me and even though my idea was to fight some mock battles with Erador (the character I have to convince), I’m just…not feeling it.  It doesn’t help that I can just watch Oliz’s LP of it and chill AND I have Voice of Cards to play as well (which has a DLC to play afterwards).  I haven’t taken the step yet with the LP (I’m currently embroiled in Trails of Cold Steel and Horizon Zero Dawn in that area), but it’s probably going to happen.  Also, who knows; maybe watching it will spur me to play again.
