1. Trails in the Sky SC
2. Final Fantasy XV
3. FFXV: Episode Gladiolus
4. NieR: Automata
5. FFXV: Episode Prompto
6. Trails in the Sky the 3rd

7. Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

Defeated the Hell Wyrm, got the Kumbha and Zodiac Escutcheon, beat every Mark except for Yiazmat, got all 13 Espers, and finally beat the story over the weekend.  Did Trial Mode up to about 80.  That is far, FAR more than I ever expected to do with this game and I loved every minute.  All I really want to do now is fill out the Bestiary and that's it.

Honestly.... this is one of the best RPGs I have ever played, and almost certainly Top 5 mainline Final Fantasies.  The art design is the best in the entire franchise (stupid main character costumes notwithstanding) and the world-building is second to none.  While the main plot falls off sharply after a bit and disappoints overall, the exploration, gameplay, customization and growth mechanics make this one a true classic and not to be missed.  I'm already excited about a second playthrough, as there are myriad Challenge Run opportunities due to the game's rich diversity of mechanics and customization options (although I won't be utilizing the level 90 NG+).

Final Score: 10/10

Up Next: Tales of Xillia 2

If I can finish that one before the end of December, I'll have hit my goal of Finish One Full RPG Every 2 Months, which seemed impossible to me.

I had never had a credit card before I got married, but when my wife went to apply for one for me and checked my credit, it was well over 700 because I had never missed a car or student loan payment.  So not having a credit card doesn't necessarily tank your credit all by itself.

You can be "not wrong" and still horrible.  Especially in translations.

You gave it a 9/10, why would you get hate mail?

After watching the trailer, I am cautiously optimistic. The winter campaign should at bare minimum make it feel different than the campaigns in 1 and 2 (and probably 3, but I have never played it). Also I like the tank designs for the Federation. Hopefully no one who worked on Revolution is also working on this. I'm not seeing any immediate warning signs, but Revolution exists so part of my brain has been questioning whether there was anyone with talent left at Sega. >.>

Hate to be the bearer of bad hype, but...http://www.siliconera.com/2017/11/20/valkyria-chronicles-4-shares-details-new-explosive-grenadier-class/

Producer is the same as Revolution.

Should be good news, except the Switch part. Hope this doesn't gut the game into empty husk like Nintendo RPGs tend to be.

no cleavage: 2/10

not going to buy.

In all seriousness, while VC1 was my favorite game of the PS3 era, Sega RPGs seem to have a track record of being one of the best games ever or turning their IPs into gutter trash. So I'm going to temper my enthusiasm but its a good start.
