New personal rule: Any game that goes at least three months unplayed in my Now Playing will be removed from my Now Playing, unless I post an update really quick if I am in fact still playing but haven't updated, such as in an open-ended or game.

There are exceptions, like long-term or Co-Op games I can't for sure reliably play with the partner(s) but have every intention to keep doing, i.e: Borderlands 3 right now.

Hopefully this'll help me stay more focused, and alleviate some stress/pressure!

Final thoughts on Bravely Second:

Gameplay-wise, it's mostly the same as BD, but the improvements are noticeable and nice. I approve.

I don't think the story is quite as strong. Like, it's interesting in its own right, but it didn't have the same impact as BD. Everything was wrapped up fairly nicely, but I wasn't really surprised by anything that happened, I guess. I suppose playing BD provided a good hint that Anne was the evil mastermind behind most of it, but on the other hand, you can't fully enjoy BS without playing BD first.

I loved the moral decisions to gain asterisks! It was a very nice touch to help the player think critically about which direction to go without there necessarily being a "correct" choice (and the fact that you can gain them all eventually helps too). I also liked that we got to see what the old bosses are up to now.

I still don't like Yew. You were right that he does get better as the game continues, and his relationship with Magnolia was pretty cute. There was a point in the gamewhere he dropped below my hatred for Vaan (Final Fantasy XII), which is saying something, but he ended up on top and at "okay" levels.

I think my only real complaint is that there wasn't a ton of new music in the game, or variations. The cave music got really monotonous by the end.

In the end, I enjoyed my experience with Bravely Second! I like it just a bit over Bravely Default overall. We'll see how Bravely Default II goes!

Now it's back to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Final Fantasy VII Remake - hopefully I'll finish both before October, because that's my Castlevania month. I think I can do it, so wish me luck!

Compared to the original game, the online play is pretty limited. In the original, you all made your characters together, shared the town they lived in and you all explored the map, towns and dungeons together. You all progress in the story together, at the same time. In the remaster, you can only join other players for dungeons. The host is the only one that will get the credit for clearing the dungeon to progress their story, too. So if you want to play with a friend, you'll have to host, clear it for you, then have your friend host it and clear it for them. Which isn't the worst thing, really. The worst thing about it is that the servers have been horrible so far. I tried to play with my friends and I was literally getting disconnected every 10 seconds, even if I was the host of the lobby. Naturally, I try to rejoin the lobby every time but after so many disconnects you get temporarily restricted from joining any lobbies because you've disconnected too much.

It really pains me to say it, because Crystal Chronicles is such a special game to me, but when a game that's primary focus was to showcase multiplayer gameplay is remastered in 2020 and the multiplayer can be literally unplayable, considered worse than the original release, it's a bit of a failure. As of writing, I've seen some posts on Twitter that they're working on fixing the multiplayer connection, so here's hoping it'll end up playable soon.

Multiplayer gripes aside, I still really love the remaster. Playing single player is still a great experience, the game is as charming as I remember it to be. It's still one of my favourite Final Fantasy games, so it's really easy for me to still enjoy it even with the multiplayer issues that would completely kill it for other people. I'm pretty heartbroken that I haven't been able to play with my friends who I've been talking the game up to for months now, we were all looking forward to playing through it together but at the moment that's been impossible. I'd still say it's worth playing, but if your main intention was to play online with friends, you may have to hold off on it for now and hope they do a good job of fixing it up.

Edit: I forgot to specify, the issues seem to be a lot more prevalent for Australian and New Zealand players. I'm not sure what it's like playing in other countries, so your mileage may vary.

Oh yeah, I should probably reply, huh? It's kind of interesting that you haven't played Resident Evil 4-6, since those are probably the best selling and best known ones.

Just make sure you play RE5 and RE6 with a good friend, because they're a pal time if you have the right mindset, but might be quite grueling if played alone. RE6 in particular... it's a strange game, it's mechanically sound but is otherwise a big mess, it's over-the-top action to the point of causing fatigue. I really haven't played anything else like it.

I think similarly we also also both trying to clear out Persona 3-5, although you're one game ahead. So far I'd say I probably like Persona 4 better than 5. Persona 5 is probably mechanically more in-depth, but the tone just isn't as fun and it's so long-winded. I'm finding the scenarios and characters in Persona 4 a lot more fun.

How's Octopath Traveler? I've heard both good and bad about it. The art style looks really cool though.
Enter the survival horror.
