This week is brought to you by the word “Focus”. I think my biggest problem is that I have too many lengthy games on the go at once, and it’s making me feel like I’m getting nowhere with my backlog boss monster. After I cleared my first game of the year last weekend, it gave me that awesome feeling of achievement that had been missing in my life. I think I’m very close to finishing another game, so I’m focusing my limited attention span on it.
Backlog Battle Progress
I scored the Bahamut summon from a very tough moon cave. After that I returned to the troubled planet to help some old friends fight something very big and evil. I’m inside that evil thing now, and I’m getting ready for a chain of familiar boss fights near the end of the area.
My party’s stats: Cecil Lv 46, Rosa Lv 44, Rydia Lv 43, Fusoya Lv 51, Edge Lv 42. I think I’ll be glad I took the time to get Bahamut when I attempt the next part.

Finished! A short game was exactly what I needed to gain some hope. Perhaps one decade I will be able to conquer this ugly backlog boss. I can’t thank the Evil Wizard who recommended it enough, even if his intentions were to sabotage my no purchase streak. My unqualified opinion of the game can be found here.
Game Shamefully Purchased:
- Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition (Steam) – My newbie Steam account was in “limited status”, meaning I needed to spend a certain amount of money on games to add a friend (I want to rant about this but maybe later. I’m too tired to be angry right now). Anyway, I went with this epic game since it was on sale for $7 and I’ve been reading a lot of great praise about it lately from a very loyal fan of the game. When will I actually get to play it? Hopefully before my life’s Game Over.
Random Weekly Ramblings
I’ve honestly had no desire to watch any “Let’s Plays”, or commonly referred to as LPs, until recently. Power to the gamers who take the time to make them, and I’m incredibly jealous of those who earn a living from doing it, but I always preferred to selfishly play the games myself. The idea of watching someone else conquer a game had never appealed to me. But then along came hungygoriya. The internet was abuzz with her legendary LPs so I decided to watch her Legend of Zelda one last year. I had already beaten the game (thus avoiding any spoilers), and I was curious to see how a professional handled Prince Darkness Gannon. Long story short, I was very entertained by it, and it was a great way to safely maintain my sanity during annoying cardio machine time (trying to play games while exercising does not work. Trust me).
This week I finished watching my second ever LP: hungrygoriya’s Faxanadu. This is a classic NES game that I never new existed before now. I have no plans to ever play it since it seems like it would frustrate me greatly. However, I really enjoyed watching someone who knew what she was doing crush General Grievous, I mean King Grieve. It’s a quirky game with a lot of unique enemy designs and great music. It also has an interesting story (for its time of course), but I don’t think I’d be able to tolerate all the golds grinding or getting torn apart in that unforgiving mist place. I’m happy with just witnessing someone with more patience than me slay the Evil One. Next on my “To Watch” list is her Miracle Warriors LP.
Feel free to share your glorious conquests in that comment area thingy below. I could honestly use more inspiration…
