Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: Lightning Solves All Problems (Steam) - I finished this game as a full-on dark side character. Level 3 Force Lightning is basically a built-in cheat code. I was unable to convert Atton to a Jedi, which is disappointing because I focused on Charisma and Persuasion, and I talked to Atton as often as possible.
Final Fantasy VI (Steam) - I was feeling fairly geared up, so I decided to check out the Phoenix Cave. I had to use two parties to get around the place, as there are a series of buttons that unlock various things. It was kind of a pain, but I was getting nice experience and AP. I ran into a Red Dragon, which was fairly easy to beat considering it’s technically a boss fight. After beating it the game told me I had seven more dragons to beat. What the hell? I read up on them and it turns out that beating all eight granted you some magicite. Also, two of the either are located in the final tower, so I’ll have to beat the other six before heading for the end boss. At the bottom of the Phoenix Cave I found Locke, who decided to use the Phoenix magicite to resurrect his long dead girlfriend. Once reborn, she told him to use the magicite to save the world, and died again. Poor Locke. With him in my party, I was able to collect the Ragnarok magicite from Narshe. I also picked up a new Blitz move for Sabin, even though I hate the Blitz system. I picked up Strago near a large tower. The only characters I am still missing are Cyan, Shadow, Gau, and Gogo, so I’ll be focusing on getting them next.
Dragon Quest V (Android) - I played this game for a few minutes on my Android tablet and then requested a refund. The controls are terrible. In the interest of wanting to remain active in this group, maybe it’s time to buy another 3DS (I sold my old one awhile back) because there are a lot of great RPGs on that platform.
Rust (Steam) - A friend of mine made a Rust server and suggested I try the game. I found it on sale for seven dollars so I went for it. This game is essentially Boy Scouts lost on an island. After wandering around for awhile because of the lack of a map I was able to finally find my friend’s little house of wood on the west side of the island. Once I gathered enough wood, I was able to turn that into paper and then make a map. It’s a very crude mapping system. I understand the game wants to be as realistic as possible, but a better mapping system would be nice. My friend and I spent the next few hours gathering stone and wood. At one point we saw a plane fly by and drop a box of supplies so we ran way out into the wilderness to get it. I killed some pigs along the way and cooked their meat. I was not able to kill this one chicken I found, because I only had a spear. My friend suggested I make a bow and some arrows. A couple of bears attacked our house. My friend killed the first one with arrows while I ran around screaming. Bears are bad news in this game. The second bear killed me, but I was able to find my way back to our house and get my stuff back. We had just begun building a stone wall around our house when a helicopter showed up and mowed us down. When we got back to our house to recover our bodies, we found that half the house had been obliterated. My friend began working on a second house nearby, but this one was made of stone. As he built, I continued to collect resources. I ran into a horse and stabbed it, but it ran off. “You really need a bow” my friend reminded me. I finally made a bow but the day was getting late so we called it quits.
