Recently finished The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky (i.e. the first game). Started on the second game, The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC. (It's a direct sequel, forming the second part of the story.)

Very recently (as in earlier tonight), started playing Hyper Metroid, a Super Metroid hack.

Just finished up FF9 - debating whether to play FF8, FF10, or FF12... or just jump ahead to FF15 which I have purchased but not yet played..

Probably just skipping ahead to 15 but we will see!

I'm sick to death of the career mode in FIFA 18, which appears to have a transfer system that is completely broken unless you start your player in a top league (or at least not MLS). I've raised my player's value twentyfold in two seasons, won three preseason tournaments, two league titles, and one cup tournament, AND a World Cup, and the team refuses to let my player be sold, only loaned.

So, rant aside, I moved into the FIFA 18 version of the RPG mode, that they call The Journey. Scroll back a page or two and you'll see my thoughts on it from 17 - so far they seem to have done a good job of introducing some improvements and variety to the system and the user experience - the pre-title sequence that takes place in a Brazilian Favela is really cute and fun. Cristiano Ronaldo is NOT a good voice actor, though. Yikes.

Finished Dark Souls 3. Well...okay, let's be honest, ya never finish a Dark Souls game, but I beat the Soul of Cinder and plunged the world into an era of Darkness cause I don't wanna anyone peepin on what me 'n the Firekeeper are gonna be up to now that we both got some free time. ( ͡ ͜ʖ ͡)

I was going to play Tacoma, but them some random bug to watch peeps playing Alien Isolation on twitch bit me and watching them screw it up prompted me to reinstall that four year old game. First off, looks damned good for how old it is - crappy monitor resolutions not withstanding - and second, nightmare mode is a stingy mofo. You aint gonna find nothing to loot most the time!

Also playing Far Cry 2 for no discernible reason.

Hmm, not a ton of things I'm playing lately. Went through Far Cry 5 (as a Montanan, how could I not?) and was reasonably impressed, though it was a step down from FC4 in several ways. Its post-game is pretty weak, so here's hoping they add NG+ in sometime.

Also got The Last Guardian, Watch Dogs and the Wolfenstein New Order/Old Blood on PS4, but haven't gone too far into 'em -- kinda want to finish Deponia Doomsday first. Doing Overwatch events when they roll 'round tends to throw a lot of schedules off for me, too, heh.

It's gonna be a glorious day
I feel my luck can change

Played some Mega Man 7 today. Just getting my game itch back.

Phantasy Star II as well, a hack by vivify93 called "Phantasy Star II Improvement," which only makes minimal changes to script and gameplay mechanics while leaving the heart of the experience intact. I put on a cheat to give me a grant, since the weapon prices vs. the meseta gained per battle are just kind of frustratingly out of balance in my old-man-impatient-with-the-rules-working-so-strictly-as-they-do grumpyness.

I just wanna do the aventure, I don't wanna think about work, ya know?
