I am currently in another "the games I want to play aren't out yet" phase (in this case, it's Fate Extella Link on Switch and Kingdom Hearts: The Story so Far on PS4, at least for this month) so I am flitting aimlessly between games to idle away the time. On Switch I am still playing FFIX...honestly, if it weren't for the mods included with it I wouldn't be bothering. It doesn't make me want to play it - the plot is hardly inspiring, the cast ranges from kinda likeable (Eiko, Vivi) to downright irritating (Zidane, Steiner) and...ugh, it plods. It's bad, but half the time I just turn on the battle assist and 9999 damage mods and just speed through boss encounters, and turn regular encounters off...selective use of the speed enhancer, because it turns Zidane into freakin' Sonic the Hedgehog. In short, it's BORING. But it does look pretty good for a PS1 game - I think the visuals really worked in its favour here, it definitely aged more gracefully than VII and even VIII in terms of character models - and...yeah, I've played worse. Think I'm about halfway through what would be Disc 3 at this point. ...and I started Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky again a couple of days ago, because waiting for Chocobo Mystery Dungeon on Switch is too long a wait apparently. It's been 9 years (!) since I played it though, so it's a nice trip down memory lane, and I don't think I ever DID recruit everything in it, so that's something to do. I am a Shinx, with a Vulpix partner (that's caused a couple of problems already...every time something uses Magnitude or Earthquake we're screwed) and am currently on Chapter 12, although by the end of the day I will probably be further along than that, because I'm playing this more than anything else. Also playing Outland on PC, which I believe I got for free some time ago...I can't imagine myself buying it, anyway. The visual style is quite appealing but it feels a little barren and bland for a Metroidvania title, and the soundtrack isn't good enough, frankly. But I'll see where it goes.
