Currently (Re)Playing – Final Fantasy 15 (3)

Main Quest Progress Not much this time, after failing to get close to the disc (there was a blockade), I continued to Lestallum to visit Gladios’ sister, Iris. There, Noct got a headache coupled with some kind of vision during an earth tremor. The next morning Iris showed Noct around the city and when we…

Currently (Re)Playing – Final Fantasy 15 (2)

Main Quest Progress Completed the first quest for Dino (the reporter) at the dock (had to sneak around a rather large bird while doing this part). Later I returned to continue to the next chapter. This is about where the climax of the Kingsglaive movie happens (the game shows some glimpses of it) and after…

Currently (Re)Playing – Final Fantasy 15 (1)

Having originally played this game on the PS4 when it released, I am now playing through the recently released Windows Edition, to see how all the updates and DLC released since then changed the game (really liked the original release already).

Currently Playing – Anvil of Dawn (4)

Well this was a longer session, quite some progress was made. I began with searching through the Quagmire near the giant arm reaching for the sky. At some point I found a sword that was being held captive by 2 hands. The walls on either side had an opening to insert something. According to the…

Currently Playing – Anvil of Dawn (1)

This first post in the “Currently Playing” series won’t be from the start of Anvil of Dawn, as I already put several hours into the game before the idea popped into my head. But from this point on I am going to summarize what I am playing, what happens during play-sessions, thoughts I have during…

Nintendo Direct Mini January 11th, 2018

Nintendo’s Marketing seems strange sometimes… most Nintendo Directs in the past have had announcements ahead of their release, even if they didn’t have all that much new info. And now a few days ago they drop a “Mini” Direct out of pretty much nowhere (from what I have seen there have only been some rumours,…
