Random Gaming Progress of October
October 27, 2015

I think I can keep this one pretty short and sweet.

Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (PS4)- As I mentioned before, I polished this one off. I've considered rebooting my file and taking on the two bosses I missed, but I probably won't get around to that any time soon. Getting to the two tigers in the third DLC quest line is irritating, especially since it took me nearly 30 minutes to navigate that stupid tundra just to die within moments starting the fight with those damn cats.

Bloodborne (PS4)- Started this, but haven't done much with it. I died fighting the werewolf thing and gained access to that otherwordly place (name forgotten), nabbed a couple of weapons, and returned to kill the thing. After that, I ran into the night, chopped up scores of "zombies," and eventually killed the Cleric Beast, which led to me leveling up several times. Currently, I'm not sure what I need to do next. I guess exploration will reveal that...

Vessel (PC)- I started this one a while back and haven't returned to it yet. I do plan to pick it up here and there, but Bloodborne is going to be my main focus for now.

Star Ocean: First Departure (PSP)- I accomplished a lot in just a week. I eventually found all of the missing members of my party, switched Mavelle for Erys, and turned the Luxurious Swords in the Muah Treasury into Dueling Swords. I could have gotten better weapons from the optional dungeon near the end of the game, but decided to forgo that. It's a good thing, too, because the final boss was a pushover. Needless to say, I beat the game today. I'm not sure if the SNES version is supposed to be much better, but I wasn't extremely thrilled with this one. At least not as much as I was with The Second Story in the '90s. The lore is fantastic and a few of the characters are interesting, but the story is just okay and the villains are dull and easily dispatched.

Star Ocean: The Second Story (PS)- I restarted this game with Rena as my protagonist so I can obtain Dais (piss off, Leon). Having already beat this title, I probably won't focus as much on it. I do want to get through it so I can review it and (hopefully) move on to Blue Sphere, Till the End of Time, and The Last Hope (the latter two of which are on my backlog).
