Friday! Video games! Let’s talk!
It’s going to be a brief post this week as it’s been a busy day and I have dinner that needs cookin’!
I literally just finished off Torna: The Golden Country, which was 34 glorious hours of JRPG goodness. I’ll be covering this in more depth soon-ish in a full-length post, so I’ll just say that the world design, characters, writing, music, and combat were all stellar and if you’re a fan of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 you owe it to yourself to play the prequel.
I did 99% of the side-quests and recruited all but 2 of the 89 community members, so it’s definitely shorter than 34 hours if you don’t feel like doing *everything*, but I highly recommend at least doing the side-quests. They add a lot to the character development.
With Torna out of the way, I’ve set my sights on Octopath Traveler. Rather than chip away at it little by little, I’m going to give it my full attention until it’s over. I need to recruit Primrose and then start working on all of the chapter 2 stories.
After Octopath I’ll either take an RPG break with Vampyr or keep rolling on with The World Ends With You since that’ll be available by then. I want to save Dragon Quest XI as my last big game of 2018 since I hear it’s easily 100+ hours long.
I won a random draw on Twitter and ended up with a free Switch copy of Dragon Ball FighterZ and a $50 eShop card. I used the card to pick up God Wars Complete (a strategy RPG) and Hyper Light Drifter. Not sure when I’ll get to them, but hey, free is free.
What about you, folks? Any gaming plans this weekend?
