Currently (Re)Playing – Final Fantasy 15 (4)

Combining sessions 5 and 6 for this post, as especially session 5 was short (only did a few side quests in that one) Main Quest Progress Went into the dungeon behind the waterfall (neat ice-cave, even had slides, wheee :^) ) and got the third Royal Arm, immediately replaced the axe to have better defense….

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…

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). This first post combines the first two play-sessions, as they were each pretty short…

Horrible Ports – Chrono Trigger (PC)

On the 27th of February 2018, Square Enix decided to release Chrono Trigger on Steam, out of the blue, without any previous announcement… and oh boy is that a thing. Just looking at the trailer does not prepare for what awaits you after buying and installing this port. One reason for that is that the…

Currently Playing – Anvil of Dawn (5 / End)

And thus, the game is finished. Going up the Warlords’ Tower, the “boss” actually wasn’t at the top level, but one level lower. Though I still had to go to the highest floor first because one of the enemies there had the key to the room. In the boss room the Castellan was just about…

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…
