Backloggery cure???

Boom, finished FFX HD, finally! Also watched Eternal Calm. All chronicled here. I'm going to focus on other games for a bit before diving into FFX-2. This is partly because I'm doing a "finish unfinished games" challenge on Habitica. I already finished one (Fantasy Life) and FFX didn't count because I've previously finished it. My necessities list, in order:

1) Earthbound (mostly done - probably a few hours left; "any additional unfinished game")
2) Brothers (no more than 2 hours left, probably; "any unfinished game you haven't played in a month")
3) Bastion (not really done - the internet says it's about 7 hours long; "any unfinished game you haven't played in 6 months")

Then I can contemplate FFX-2, which will be the final part of my challenge, "Finish a game you haven't played in over a year." There are other games I want to pick up... In no particular order, my maybes list:

a) Tales of Xillia? (I do want to finish it, but it's so long and doesn't fill the "over a year" requirement FFX-2 does)
b) Tales of Vesperia PS3, patched? (Kristy and Rob are playing TOV English and I have the itch. they're just at Judith's intro...!)
c) Papers, Please? (mostly done - probably like an hour left)

In other news, I'm going to have a niece and I'm very tired.

! Happy soon-to-be aunting! (I would share aunt stories with you, but uh it's hard to be an aunt when you're not in the same country as them. :/ Oops.)

You inspire me. *stares at games pending finishing* ...I could stand to do a challenge like yours. ...but at this point I should just restart all these games, because I've forgotten how to effing play them. (FFIV, what are you. FFVI, uuuh that was always kind of tricky. Also I never did finish FFVII. I am very lazy sometimes, oops.)

The plus is that I get to be the crazy aunt by default. *checks one off the bucket list*

I think I left FFVI off after Humbaba (or Huwawa? ...I get confused because Epic of Gilgamesh, lol). Definitely in the World of Ruin. (Of course I saved Cid. Poor Celes! I couldn't cause her more pain!) I might use cheat codes on that one, just because I don't actually care for pride points, I just want to get to the end. FFIV I am... we're doing something for the Dwarf King, and we're underground. I have completely forgotten how to play it, sobs. I do remember, though, being in the mid-20s with Cecil before he went and became a level 1 paladin. Like are you kidding me, grinding sucked but oh I love that game. (So many deaths...!) That one I have on the DS.

Gosh there are so many games I want to emulate. *slaps own hand* No. Crochet instead. Finish fic instead. (Partly your fault, because the Tales of... games seem cool! It's a good thing to be guilty of, lol.) And lord knows all of these things are better than trying to beat the Imprisoned. :D

The restarting trap is so insidious and evil, because there comes a point where you just have to, but then... eventually you just end up needing to do it for like the fourth time, and... orz

Ahhhhahaha, I hear that. I often "joke" that I only play games 85% of the way through, then start them over after a year of neglect, but . . . it's not so much a joke.

A niece named Tater!

The fact that she doesn't want to name her daughter Tatiana is gravely offensive to me and my sensibilities. Hmph, I say!

In an acting off between Blake Lively and Tatiana Maslany, it's no contest. And your sister needs to know that! >(

There's only one option available to us now. You must steal the baby. Stick a pillow under your sister's dress, she'll never notice.

YOU DID IT. Maybe I ought to join that challenge. I already have finishing Bloodborne, DDS: AT 2, Gensui V, and Bravely Default on my To-Do list.

Congratulations on becoming an aunt! My tenure as an uncle has been quite rewarding, so I hope the same will go for you.

Hm! That sounds like a challenge I ought to join, though it would be my first one + I'd have to, uh, make a Backloggery account. So it'd be a learning experience all around. やっほお

Ahhhhh, Bastion. I somehow forgot about that game despite loving it unconditionally.

Maybe I'll see about setting up an account sometime today. (Had to take the day off due to some super interstellar mutant virus from space.) ngl I find it just slightly intimidating as I have a metric ton of started-but-unfinished games. orz|||||
