On Edge's Tale in FFIV-2 iOS, working on another ninja's quest.

Read a bunch of books I got for free for my iPad's Kindle App thanks to BookBub by Claudy Conn, and am not a fan though there are occasional gems.

Plus a bunch of romance novels, part of the Destiny Bay series, by Helen Conrad, most of which were enjoyable.

And the Abolethic Sovereignty trilogy by Bruce R. Cordell, which was fairly enjoyable.

Reread the Inkheart trilogy by Cornelia Funke. Not a fan.

On Palom's Tale in FF4: The After Years iOS, and have been moving smoothly.

Beat Tales of Symphonia 2 PS3. Was generally satisfied with the game, though the localization was chock full of missing punctuation.

Finally beat Bravely Default. I didn't like the repeated boss fights late in the game and the difficulty spike with the final bosses (took me a few tries to beat the penultimate boss, although I beat the actual final boss my first try), and the story's a bit generic, but I was overall satisfied with the game.

I was surprised myself, and I didn't completely skip over the sidequests or Social Links. My playthrough with the PS2 version did take me 60-80 hours, though, but again, I don't know.

@Blace I beat Persona 4 Golden in around 25 hours so I'm not sure how longer you have and don't remember the specifics on when the game ends.

Bravely Default - I'm pretty much ready for this game to be over, having reached the final area, although the first boss slaughters me by making my party weak to all elements and massacring my party with Zeta Flare. I'll try to counter it by keeping the boss's Magic Attack power down with the Pirate's skills, and I've buffed up my party's magic defenses, got all the asterisks, explored the extra dungeon a little, and done most of the extra sidequests.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years (iOS) - I'm an hour into Rydia's story, and I'm somewhat struggling due to a lack of healing magic, although two of the characters can randomly heal when they use their Band, and I have a few other helpful Bands as well that I've been leveling alongside my character's experience levels.

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World (Tales of Symphonia Chronicles) - I'm near the end of Chapter 7 and I beat one of the bosses of the basement area of Altamira. Haven't needed to use my monsters often since I get characters from the first game in my party at most points.

Auction is over.

Finished all the Dirk Pitt novels, both by Clive Cussler only and by him and his son Dirk, most of them were hit-or-miss for me, and I think the best one was probably Dragon.

Now I'm working on the NUMA Files books.
55  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: July 13, 2014, 07:19:38 PM
I know Dragon Quest does the same with revival magic failing and it generally being difficult and expensive to revive deceased characters. Pretty much creates artificial difficulty, which I really don't like.

Started Phantasy Star III. God that game aged atrociously...
IV seems to be the first PS to not look atrocious from the look of III (only ever played IV up to now).

I'm following a walkthrough because otherwise, I have zero idea what I need to do.
I do like that the dungeons up to now are fairly short. So it's not that bad to navigate them even with no map.

I found the in-game overworld maps in PSIII to be horribly inaccurate, although I did like the family generation system.

Finished The Wrong Girl, a Victorian paranormal fantasy novel about a girl locked in her home's attic by her earl father until Jack, a fire-conjurer, breaks her out and takes her to a place called the Freak House. Enjoyable, and I tend to prefer books written in the first person.

Still working on the Dirk Pitt novels by Clive Cussler as well, and am on the tenth one.

Bravely Default - In Chapter 8 and have had to fight the same bosses before the four crystals over and over during the past few chapters. Thumbs down, for certain, but I'll still beat the game.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years (iOS) - On Ceodore's Tale, after the airship crashes. The graphics could use some work and the music is recycled or nonexistent, but I'm otherwise having a decent time, and Auto-Battle is definitely a godsend.

Riviera: The Promised Land (PSP) - Beat this this afternoon and had a decent time with the game.

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World (PS3) - I'm on Chapter 4 I think, and have Regal in my party. Some of the bosses have been tough but I'm having a decent time.

Read The Silla Project by John C. Brewer, a fairly engaging book about an American scientist wrongfully convicted and imprisoned but broken out by North Koreans and brought to their homeland to make nuclear weapons. I'm also working on the Dirt Pitt novels by Clive Cussler and have fairly enjoyed them.

Saw the latest Transformers film today. Pretty much on par with its predecessors.
