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 yesterbirthday to me! Thank you for remembering [personal profile] starsinyourwake ♥ I recently joined up with Habitica, which is a gamified way of managing to-do lists, things you want to do every day, habits you want to learn, etc. There are group challenges that can give you prizes if you get motivated, and there are guilds where you can chat with other people who share your interests. I'm trying to use it to keep track of things I should really be doing with my life, like:

  • Exercise

  • Drink more water

  • Don't leave clothes on the floor

  • Archive fics properly on DW and AO3

  • Go to bed by 11PM

  • Make progress on unfinished games

  • Not be so depressed or zoned out that I forget to do anything at all for an entire day

etc. I've been doing pretty well, actually. I've only been at it for like 3 weeks and I'm a level 21 rogue with 30 pets and 1 soon-to-be mount! So, people who might be interested should check it out.

Relatedly, I've managed to finish Fantasy Life and am working on Earthbound and FFX. I am determined to beat FFX today (stop me from not doing that) although I won't move on to FFX-2 right away -- next on my list after Earthbound might be Tales of Xillia...

I'll probably fail to be on DW some more for the next little while. Not out of lack of love, but I'm taking two classes this block, so that's two 15-hour days per week. Wooo...

I have been employed again for two full weeks now, and all my wonderful co-workers are there. It feels good. Also, having money feels good. I have fallen behind on everything else in my life, but this whole "balancing work and life" thing is new to me every time I end up spending six months unemployed, which is tragically frequent.

Here is a list of things I have wanted in the last 48 hours, in vaguely genre order:

• MCU Phase Three, most of it
• Hellsing
• Megami Kouhosei
• Chrono Crusade
• The World Ends With You
• SaGa Frontier
• Legend of Mana
• Planescape: Torment
• Breath of Fire (III & IV)
• Suikoden V
• Kingdom Hearts
• Xenogears
• Patricia C. Wrede's Dealing With Dragons series
• Anthony Piers' Incarnations of Immortality series
• David Eddings' The Elenium and the Tamuli series

Instead of any of that, I will continue writing fics for [community profile] fic_promptly's contest week as long as my inspiration holds out (not much longer, but I have 17 fics written so far this week, many of them full-length 1000+ words, which is crazy) and then return to Final Fantasy X like a good girl who finishes things.

But in the meantime, I've been ficcing and am haunted by TWEWY questions, like... how did Shiki die? What happens to Mr. H? And how does resurrection work -- we've seen people in the RG mourning their friends who died, and then they just come back? Do they actually have a zombie moment or does it get made so that they never died as far as anyone else knows? I need more stuff.

I've spent the last half hour or so crying, but I finished it! It's been 13 years and 11 months to the day since this game was released, which means... I DID IT IN UNDER 14 YEARS! YES!

Another video game liveplay complete. 642 comments. /basks in the glory

Expect a sexy post from me in the morning before I move on to [replaying] Final Fantasy X [which I did already finish, thank you very much].
