Up to you - I'm allowing myself a break because I'd rather not have it looming over me while I'm slogging through FFII and FFXII.

Yeah, I'm going to be taking a break from the Marathon for Octopath. The Prologue Demo was quite fun, and even though it's another RPG, it feels different enough that I don't think I'll mind. My hope is to be done with VIII by the time it comes out, but that might be pushing it a bit.

Nice! I rather like the banner myself - my favorite part is Cait Sith yelling at Balthier. If you'd photoshopped his fingers around, it would look like he's saying "f*** you, cat" and be perfect.

I don't think I recognize one of them in your 6th set (one's V, I know) and one in your 7th either (aside from Zell).

You'll have to tell me what you think of the XIII sequels. I had originally put them in my Marathon as well, but decided after playing XIII that I wasn't too keen on seeing how everything went wrong in that universe because the ending was so conclusive. I might get to them at some point, though.

Returning to the gaming world after focusing on my cosplay for 2 weeks! I was at a con last weekend and enjoyed the hell out of it.

Now, back to grinding out more FF!

Right? That's the answer. You spend all this time running towards the place, once you get there, you decide, let's just run away! Where? I don't know. Somewhere! Just away! They need a vacation from their problems.

Yep. I'm a completionist. I have this kind of relationship with it.

I've been playing Defiance since it launched, and this was going to be my year to finally finished it. Did you see what God just did to me man!?

Thanks! I thought about going for the right away, but I decided to continue with the Marathon for now. I'll definitely go back to it eventually, though!

Yeah, work's been picking up for me, too. Thankfully, I haven't had to put in too many extra hours yet. Hopefully it slows down for us both soon!

Also, when you get to Chapter 13, Google Gil Farming. There's a very easy way to do it right at the start of that final area.

I’m actually really enjoying it! To be honest, you probably don’t have to do a lot of grinding to finish the game, but it’s pretty easy if you know where to do it and it does make the game much easier. I do listen to Podcasts or VG OSTs to break up the monotony, but other than that, I don’t have any complaints!

I'm insane. It's been a long time coming. Thankfully, a spark re-lit the fires!!

I am also joining LM30000 in his crusade! I am slowly creating a banner for this marathon, and adding a few more games to the madness

I decided to try to beat them all before KH III comes out (or at least just play the games and watch the HD theatres that the collections have).

The nice thing with XIII is that you can change classes right in the middle of battle - kind of like swapping out characters in X, except you just change the roles of the characters instead. So I can switch to Medic (or all Medics) at anytime, but they have no attack capabilities at all, so you need to switch back to Commando (Fighter) or Ravager (Black Mage-ish) in order to finish battles quickly. I've gotten used to it now, for the most part, but the battles can be VERY fast-paced.

DW9 has three language choices: Japanese, English dub, or Chinese dub. The Chinese dub gives it a more authentic feel, but like you, I like understanding what's being said without having to read all the time. I was disappointed in the latest Samurai Warriors and Warriors Orochi in that regard, especially when there's something that comes up in the middle of a battle that needs immediate attention. That doesn't happen much at all in DW9, so you can probably get away without the dub, but I still kept it on.

I planned it out for the most part. The initial setup of each leg was to play a game I haven't yet with a game that I have. Most of them on the left side (X-2, XIII, XIII-2, Lightning Returns, and XV) fall into that category, though I couldn't make it a strict 1:1 ratio because I've played the rest. X is before X-2 for obvious reasons. I could've put XIII-2 and Lightning Returns right after XIII, but I'm more interested in replaying X and giving X-2 a real chance. XII is in that column because I'm planning to get the Zodiac Age, which apparently feels quite a bit different from the original, and despite my dislike of XII, I do want to give it another chance. On the right side, I wanted to replay III, V, and VIII the most, as it's been a loooooooooong time since I've played them and I honestly don't remember much about them besides the battle mechanics. I and II are just kind of there, and I made a conscious effort to put IV, VI, and IX towards the end, since they're three of my five favorites (VII and X are the others); since IX and VI are at the top of my list, it seemed like a good way to end the marathon, as you said.

DO IT! Insanity loves company!

Yeah, I don't hate it but I miss the combat system from the other games.

FFXIII is a pretty good time so far. It feels weird that I don't have a Medic (aka White Mage) constantly, because that's my style, but I need to get used to it now so that I can continue to get good ratings later. I'm not opposed to it, but it's definitely outside of what I usually do.

DW9 was a ton of fun. I saw all of the criticism surrounding the game, and honestly, the only two issues that I found with it (now that the patches are out) are (1) the voice-acting can be awful at times and (2) playing through the same battles with multiple characters and seeing the same cutscenes gets to be a bit repetitive. If you want to play as every character, you're going to get impatient with doing all of the missions multiple times (or at least I did), but overall it was a blast. I got to explore China and see all of the beautiful scenery it had to offer; I got to see just how each battle played out and how everything fit together across China instead of just knowing what the names of the battle are; I slaughtered well over 100k enemies, which was great for stress relief; and nothing was really all that difficult for the . There were a couple of trophies that I had to read up on, but otherwise, it wasn't too bad to complete. I will say that the majority of missions are battles, with some that are "get this item" or "sneak to this area", so if the player isn't a Warriors fan, they shouldn't get this, but it is exactly what I expected "Open World Dynasty Warriors" to be.

Also, welcome back-ish! I'm not sure how you got removed from my Multitap (I think I accidentally removed you and couldn't re-find you afterwards), but I've re-added you now. Sorry about that!
