    I got the final ending of Nier: Automata (PS4) tonight. It has some awesome gameplay and story ideas, but I feel like I spent over half the game just running around a small open world, not having much fun. Had I skipped all the optional quests I'd have enjoyed it more. For me, the game should have been designed as a tight, linear experience. I don't think it gained anything by having over 50 side quests and a few, small zones to run across dozens of times.

    The last several hours were excellent, but I think I'm going to remember this one for its typical (for me) inconsistent and slow JRPG pacing rather than for its many highlights.
    The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.

    Injustice 2 (PS4) -- Borrowed this off of my roommate and may have powered through it. I am god awful at fighters and this one definitely has a steeper learning curve for me. However, I needed to see the story for myself given it's gotten a lot of praise -- and it's all right! Still hate the Injustice version of Wonder Woman, but I'll live I suppose. Also it such gorgeous art direction and graphics. Holy crap.

    Finished Harvest Moon: Skytree Village (3DS).... should have finished this last year and then 'oh shiny!' syndrome kicked in. I will be reviewing it though even though I recognize it's a release from last year. :D;

    Final Fantasy XI: Seekers of Adoulin (PC, 25 hours) - Some great characters, but my least favorite expansion by far.

    The Caligula Effect (Vita) complete
    Postives: It's not very long. At least the premise, character stories, and music direction are pretty interesting.
    Negatives: Many things.

    On the whole a fine game.

    Though near the end I kept thinking that everything this game does FFV did it better.

    Final Fantasy XV (PS4) - Platinum Trophy, 70 hours

    I waited a while before jumping in on this since I was never particularly hyped for Versus XIII. From the moment it was announced, I did not care, and I admit that I was a tad disgruntled at it being shifted to a main title as a marketing ploy when it became obvious that the side project's budget had ballooned to such proportions that it would need main title sales to break even. My interest in the title took a total nosedive when I saw how bad its older sister FFXIII turned out to be.

    That all said, I actually kind of like this one. It at least avoids being in the bottom rung of the series for me, but it's more or less stuck pretty tightly in the middle just below FFXII. Speaking of which, I feel like the game works as an odd foil to XII, both as a game and on a meta stand point. Took keep it short, XV's initial openness that shifts to complete linearity sort of works in opposition to the more tight narrative beginning of XII that later drifted away. Funny enough, both games suffer from the shifts in narrative focuses, even though it's in opposite directions. Let's be frank, my enjoyment of this game is entirely due to the first 55 hours that I played. From the moment that I got on that damn train, I just stopped caring. I did like the survivor horror section a bit, but it was still so messy (keep in mind that I played it this past month, so I got the enhanced version of Ch 13; I was also level 67, so I was unkillable anyway; I didn't even switch to Gladio and Ignis).

    Really, given that most of the plot that Nomura's original team devised was largely thrown to the way-side, I actually would have liked a very simple, relatively-lighhearted story of Noct and friends taking back the kingdom while roadtripping. I did not want the DARKNESS that the plot seemed to think was a good idea, because the best moments in the game are all pre-Leviathan. I do wish the sidequests were better fleshed out, but I do like most of the quest-givers. The fallen kingdom was fun to hang out in, hence why I spent over 50 hours doing that instead of the oh-so important story.

    I plan to replay this sometime next year or later, once all the DLC and patches are done. For now, I just skipped over Episode Gladiolus and plan to do all of the DLC in rough chronological order while playing a replay. Said replay will also be more of a story-run, since I have sort of already done everything as my Platinum Trophy shows (well, except the super dungeons).

    Final Fantasy XI: Rhapsodies of Vana'diel (PC, 15 hours) - This was nostalgia overload. From the character callbacks to the ridiculous bosses, it was pure FFXI for better or worse. And with that, I'm done with FFXI.

    Pokemon Black 2 Version (DS) - 44 hours

    This took a while to wrap up, since I count the Black Tower/White Hollow as part of the post-game. I finally beat up Benga today during lunch and got myself a second shiny Gible (it'll be a gift to my roommate for giving me an Elekid at the start of the game--it helped carry my team in the beginning). My final party this time around was DIO the Cofagrigus, No. 6 the Wailord, Ricardo Gomes the Maractus, Ikimono-gakari the Altaria, Mothra the Volcarona, and Earphone Jack the Electivire. Obviously, some of these names had to be short-handed for the limited name space (like Ikimn-gkri for Altaria).

    Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo Switch)

    Somehow ran credits on this thing, so I'm counting it. Game is pretty good and is the perfect middle ground between the handheld and console games. Really strong as a handheld, however. Docking it is pretty good too, but I'm paranoid of having it warp.

    Day of the Tentacle Remastered(PC)

    That was a fun time, too bad I remembered almost everything in the game, but it was still funny :)
    Always enjoy all the experience in life, you might gain a level or two.

    I finished Mass Effect: Andromeda (PS4) tonight. Ended up doing every quest (not task) except four, so this was on the full completion side of things for me. Of the four I didn't do, 2 were broken, 1 I found when just finishing up Voeld and I just didn't feel like it at that point, and the fourth was the Movie Night quest that disappeared
    when Jaal stopped talking to me because I went against him at the temple and in his loyalty mission,
    then reappeared after I beat the main story. Guess I'll finish that tomorrow as a 3rd epilogue.

    I enjoyed this a lot, especially that it was an RPG, not a mediocre third-person shooter with a Citadel here and chatty party members there. I'd go so far as to call it the 2nd best BioWare game right now under only Mass Effect 2. The writing was excellent, and Drack is my new favorite krogan.

    Persona 5 (PS4) completed in a very quick 122 hours, though my playstyle padded that a fair bit (must talk to all NPCs to see the dialogue changed slightly!). Awesome game.

    Also, yay, I'm not crazy for enjoying ME:Andromeda.
