Little to report. I woke Exdeath and leveled him up decently. Right now, I'm working on waking White Witch Fina. I'm short holy and sacred crystals, though, and farming them has been a pain in the rump. The best method I've found is to access the Chamber of Creation and play the pro level, which costs a steep 20 stamina. I'm currently at 33 stamina, so I only get one play per full meter.

Afterfall: Insanity (PC)
Imagine if Resident Evil 4 had a child with Fallout, and that spawn had an identity crisis and thought it was part of the FEAR series. Toss in bad voice acting, unbalanced weapons, characters that are difficult to give a damn about and boring combat. That's Afterfall. I played through the whole game and was apathetic towards every minute of it.

8-Bit Commando (PC)
Played most of the way through it, thought it was pretty meh and decided to rage quit after a frustrating motorcycle level. It's just not worth the time and stress enduring tough stages in middling games. Besides, the game's pretty much off-brand Contra.

Breath of Fire (SNES)
Just finished yet again. I shall be rewriting my old GameFAQs review for this site, but I'll publisgh it as a user. Where before I rated it 7/10 (equivalent to 4/5 here), I shall be dropping the rating slightly. I think 3/5 is more appropriate, as the game doesn't stack up to what's currently available in the RPG genre. This isn't to say that Breath of Fire is terrible, but its campaign is so ordinary and tame that it's difficult to extend a full recommendation.

Breath of Fire: quest lines of torment
November 14, 2016

Breath of Fire's quest lines are over-complicated. I wrote this in one of my previous game progress quotes, if you remember:

I recruited Bo and now need to move the stone giant.

...but that requires a key, which is located in Karma tower.

...but entering the tower requires another event item, which you can get from the town Romero.

...but Romero is overrun with zombies, and you have to get rid of them with the cleanse water to nab the item.

...but that requires a special jar gained by talking to the right people at the right time in the right sequence.

(Not Quite) Game Progress 10/30
October 30, 2016

I returned from my trip today. While in Seattle, I didn't do a lot of gaming because I didn't have time. When I did have free time, I spent it either reading or watching movies, since I have backlogs of books and movies to go through as well.

I made it to the second continent, where the character Fina decided to chase a chocobo into the woods. I was going to battle my way through the forest to complete that part of the story, but decided to complete some side quests firsts. While doing a dungeon crawl mission, I picked off the last of the coeurls and sergeants to complete those quests, plus I found a missing citizen and defeated the optional boss Hell Rider. I have yet to cash these quests in, though.

Game Progress 10/22
October 22, 2016

It's been hectic the last few days. We're currently trying to get all of our chores completed before shoving off to visit family for a few days. I've been able to find time to game and write, thankfully. That'll probably change once I go back to work, though.

Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius (Android)
I've spent a little time leveling up my troops and changing out their equipment, not to mention beefing up my one and only esper, Siren. Story-wise, the last thing I did was rescue the king and unlock a new town. I'm also getting close to 5000 lapis, so I'm looking forward to cashing it in for 11 new units.

I may yet review a horror game this month
October 20, 2016

As I previously mentioned, I'm currently on vacation until November 1. I also recently started playing the first-person, action/adventure title (with horror elements) Betrayer. It's an average game, but I'm at least moved enough by it to pen a crit. My only constraint right now is time. I'll be leaving for Seattle soon, and I'd like to have it all done before then.
