Friday! Video games! Let’s talk!
First off, I’d like to cheaply plug my latest review for Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country, which went up early this morning over at The Well-Red Mage.
I’ve been a fan of their site for a while now and have worked with Red in the past on interviews and Top 10 List type stuff, but now I’ve officially joined their merry band of adventurers. I look forward to publishing most of my reviews over there going forward, but I do still have a few lined up that will appear here instead (since there’s no reason for duplicates over there).
On the games front, I’ve gotten back into Octopath Traveler and finally finished my first Chapter 2 (Cyrus). I found a video on YouTube that suggested a good grinding spot and I spent most of the week out there getting my primary squad of four up to level 40 — being Cyrus, Ophelia, Olberic, and Therion.
As for subclasses, I put Merchant on Cyrus to give him wind magic and a hard-hitting Divine spell. Ophelia took up Dancer for dark magic and a slew of buffs. Olberic now has Apothecary for poisons, self-heals, a +500 HP bonus, and one of the hardest hitting axe skills in the game. And finally, Therion has Hunter for more weapon variety and is now a breaking machine. It’s working great so far.
I’ll be spending my free time this weekend working my way through a few more 2nd chapters and leveling up the Travelers I’ve been ignoring.
My copy of The World Ends With You arrived this evening, but I’m not in a hurry to jump in. I just wanted to support the game’s launch. I have some Switch stuff I’d like to get to in the meantime anyway, being God Wars Complete, Hyper Light Drifter, Labyrinth of Refrain: Dark Coven, The Lost Child, and Yomawari: The Long Night Collection. I also have Disgaea 1 Complete for the PS4, which is one of the reviews that’ll go up here at Cheap Boss Attack instead of The Well-Red Mage.
What about you, folks? Any gaming plans this weekend?
