Yeah, I think the original Final Fantasy VII was the first I played. They all are self-contained, as long as they follow the number scheme, although some of the sequels have muddied the waters a bit. And since the remake is the full game that is broken into pieces, this being the first part of who knows how many, that certainly muddies it up even more. But it used to be each time it was a completely different story with some familiar enemies, and shopkeepers, and mounts, and such. Kinda like how all Dragon Quest games have to have the cartoon slimes.

Just checked out the 7 remake, don't think I'll be trying it. Very Happy Sorta a Diablo-ish kinda thing (apart from the graphics which look like Zelda or something...)?

Still deep in X4, modding it a little. HQ is definitely self-sustaining now, and have 50 million in the bank. Starting to think of another station, because I'll need billions to actually take on other factions effectively.

Nah, neither Diablo or Zelda like. Old school RPG, like tons before it, but now updated a bit so it has live action fighting, but still waiting for the bar to build before you can do the bigger actions (unlike how the original version was, which was waiting for the timed bar to build before you could take an action, in lieu of an initiative like roll from D&D). But it still feels like an old school RPG game, like many of the JRPGs like Chrono Trigger, Suikoden, Dragon Quest, Phantasy Star, and tons of others. Or others like Bard's Tale, Baldur's Gate, Ultima, Wizardry, Tunnels of Doom, all in that camp. But since they have updated it with action, honestly the best comparison is to Ni No Kuni or even Kingdom Hearts, to a degree.
But yeah, if that isn't your bag, then give it a miss. It's a great story made all the better by the remake. But if you prefer gameplay over an interactive book kind of thing, then definitely give it a miss, as the story is the good part, and the battles often feel like a hindrance more than adding to the story, even though some of the battles are fun. And the minigames.....oh, the minigames.

Yeah, not into interactive books really. Smile

I'm playing this weird indie thing called "Drug Dealer Simulator." Very Happy

Not all that polished, especially for a full release, but oddly...well...addictive... Very Happy

I picked up the Itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality while it was available, so I've been going through a few games on there. So far:

A Short Hike - really nice little game where you travel around a small island meeting people, collecting things, and gaining the ability to jump and climb higher on your way to the peak of the island. Highly recommend.

Overland - A simple strategy survival game where you control a group of survivors trying to cross a US that's infested with monsters, struggling to survive and keep your car fueled. Very punishing difficulty curve.

Gladiabots - A robot arena battle game where you use a simple visual editor to craft code for your automated bots then watch them follow this code to win games against other teams. I've sunk more time into this than any of the other games, because it's really interesting to get digging into why your bots are behaving a certain way and trying to come up with instructions that improve their behaviour in the various game modes. It's a pretty interesting coding-lite kinda experience, if occasionally frustrating.

Hmm, last one sounds interesting.

Sorta at a loose end game-wise...not really feeling like anything much.

Prob will go back to my X4 playthrough.
