Love/hate #14 Final Fantasy X HD REMASTER Steam

The big one, along with FF7. I played 7 first, having been gifted it by a friend years back, but actually stopped at the North Cave, went to grind out some Power Boosts and whatnot and just stopped playing. I'll definitely go back and play through it now, having finished 8, 9, and then 10. 7 is the big one, but this one is certainly the other big title that jumps to everybody's minds.

Religion is a big theme in this one, which is quite unusual for an FF game. The Japanese are kind of low key on their faith so for a big organised religion themed one to be made is strange but still.

Also they brought in voice-acting in for almost every dialogue/scene. It's... a mixed bag.

Plot

A hotshot blitzball player gets teleported back in time to the future where everything he knew has been smashed up and one religion dominates everything.



While they are all linear to an extent, this is probably the most obviously linear one pre-FF13. Start in small village and walk in a straight line  …

2018 update first in ages

New year new me?

Probably the only person in the world semi-ironically blogging like this now. Maybe not.

Job is going well. Will stick it out for another good while.

Single for two months and it's not... the best but better than alternative.

No Warpcon for the first time since 2014.

Still running on Fridays and cycling where possible. Lifting weights but have no upper body aspirations all is well.

Itazon soon. Will probably play *less* games they just don't agree with me but may eat my words.  Saturday pass might do it.

Travel plans are actually laid and awaiting pay day.

Second Masters (the redeemer) going well, very well. A postgrad all about war and strategy? That's not for you Eoghan! Psh!

We have to move out by April so trying to figure that out.

Drive by June. Not a drive by in June but have theory test done around June-ish.

Will buy printing paper and start THE GREAT WORK so here's hoping it's workable.

More to follow?
