Urban exploring.  

urban exploring? What is that? I have visions of you walking into the wrong alley and getting a beat down for your exploratory nature.

Maybe catching pokemon. smile


Urban exploring is that thing where you go deep into either abandoned structures or get into usually unseen parts of used structures.  It's like city spelunking.

That's pretty cool.
By me that's called trespassing...

No current games are really grabbing me.  Picked up Hyperdimension Neptunia VII last weekend and while it's got lots of charm, the gameplay feels quite shallow.  I gave I Am Setsuna another look, and it just falls completely flat for me (it's sooooooo boring).  The particular brand of puzzle solving in Inside completely baffles me.  7th Dragon III Code VFD has turned into a complete grindfest.  I tried rolling up a Dark Knight tank in FFXIV and just don't really care for it much.

So I'm thinking about going old school this weekend, with something like either Dark Cloud 2 or Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition.  Or I may forego gaming entirely and just read a book.  I found my copy of Tad Williams "War of the Flowers" while I was cleaning my office yesterday, and got about 100 pages in last night.  Such a fantastic story.

EDIT:  Picked up Baldur's Gate EE, as it's the only Infinity Engine game I never finished.  For some reason, it just looks like crap on my system.  Very low-res, sprites look terrible, etc.  Looks like it's running at 1024 X 768 or something like that.  I've spent the last two hours googling potential solutions, and have come up completely empty.  Grrr....   icon_evil

After 88 hours, 53 minutes, and 5 seconds, I finally beat the true end boss in Bravely Second yesterday. I did follow Gratch's advice to collect the hidden bonus Jobs, defeat all the secret bosses, and then level a bunch of the baseline Jobs up to Legendary to unlock their super abilities.  I didn't go so far as to level every character up to Legendary in every job, though - people will still want to Abilink with Gratch for that level of completion.

I absolutely adore the ways this series chooses to break the fourth wall. Anyone can have a Deadpool moment where a character gets hyper-referential here and there. But dating back to the demo of Bravely Default where the cast suddenly turns around and starts addressing the player directly by name, the developers have some really clever ways of playing with the relationship between our world and the game's.  That said, I do think the payoff for that was somewhat stronger in the first game.

And I hope other people who finish the game will remember to come back and check out Gratch's impersonation above - well played!  High five!

For anyone who's curious, my final team configuration was

Spoiler for Hiden:
Edea - Knight / Exorcist for the survivability and time regression powers,

Yew - Black Mage / White Mage for maximum spell power,

Magnolia - Performer / Astrologist for stat boosts and attack nullification, and

Tiz - Dark Knight / Hawkeye for maximum physical and Dark attack power

Those class sets included a lot of passive abilities from an array of other Jobs too - like I said above, the Design Your Own Character Class system in these games is really fantastic!

Overall, I really enjoyed my time with Bravely Second, and while it doesn't -quite- hit the same heights as the first game, it's probably a more steady experience overall. Definitely recommended for fans of the first...at least, if they got the True Ending. thumbsup

Mostly WoW as the Invasion XP is just to good at moment.  I've leveled 4 alts to 100 just on Invasion XP.  Might sneak in some Overwatch but might love affair with that game is almost at a end
What do you have planned?
