  1. @Jamie John I’m a tad puzzled why Okami HD is on the abandoned pile and you’re considering getting No No Kuni 2. They are different styles, but both are mahoosive time sinks. With Okami HD the key is to set aside plenty of time for the intro etc as it’s a slow start with minimal saving. But yes they are different styles. I loved No No Kuni but I couldn’t really get into 2 sadly. Okami is one of the best Zelda games ever It’s truly epic though, so a big time investment, but story and character-wise and in terms of pure feels, it’s way up there as one of my favourite games of all time (hence the avatar I’ve held for ~ a decade).

    Theres one that 3x speeds everything (except the FMV sequences), which I am using a lot. Makes travelling quicker, battles, everything. Again I mostly turn it off in the proper explorey dungeon bits. Another disables random battles Another constantly refills HP, MP and Limit meter in battle. So I’ve used this a bit but I don’t really feel bad about it - this is a game I’ve finished many times but still left things undone, I may actually get to experience them at last! (One thing I’m trying to do is max out an All materia ASAP so I have plenty of Gil to help me destroy the weapons later).

    On my way to Rocket Town now, had a massive blast through today starting from Corel. Glad to get through that bit quickly as I always remember it being a bit slowwwww. My characters are levelling rather well, too. It’s a bit too tempting to use the cheat when grinding but I’m generally being good in the proper dungeony bits. I still needed to look up how to do certain things in Nibelheim, even after all these playthroughs and all these years

    The non-party characters seem to be staying consistently a few levels behind my main ones. I don’t see them level up or anything but it means you don’t get to the end of the game with a bunch of level 10s.

    Barret haters! I don’t hate him, I just feel the need for a lil’ female solidarity. And Red XIII is basically a lion, and I’m all about the cats.

    All the more reason I want to give her a chance!

    Yep when Cid arrives I usually include him. Always Red XIII as well, usually that’s my three, but Tifa until Rocket Town. I dunno it just feels so familiar and comfortable! I like Red as he’s an interesting character to have around, quite a different perspective. And he’s a really good all rounder. Tifa I do find a bit lacking except for her awesome awesome limit breaks. Its sort of annoying that Cloud is such a good all rounder because it makes it hard for the others to shine IMO. When in the early game in Midgar his magic does more than Aeris it’s hard to justify making her part of the group.

    Right, I’ve binge watched this over the past couple of weeks. I can’t decide what I feel about it. Random thoughts from all episodes up to current on Netflix. Why can’t I stop watching it?

    So I’ve just departed Costa Del Sol, and feeling pretty good! Party is Cloud/Red/Tifa and thanks to a bit of 3x grinding with some 2x growth materia items I’ve got a few level 2 spells and some extra limit breaks. Really makes the grinding thing easier. Trying to be disciplined otherwise and not cheat battles though Every time I play I think to myself ‘nah, this time I’ll try different characters for my main party’ and I never do. Picked up you-know-who in the forests near Fort Condor

    I’ve got it on PS1, PC, iPad, iPhone, PS4, Vita, PSP (bought and originally homebrewed on an original PSP or something??) and now Switch. PS3 also? Am I missing any?

    I'm playing on the world map now and I've not noticed anything annoying. Part of me wants to google to find out what I'm meant to be annoyed by but if I'm happily ignorant right now may I should keep it that way

    True! I never actually played it on Vita but do have it due to previous PSN purchases. This is probably my most purchased game. I’m such a mug* *no regrets

    Thanks! Great read, I agree with pretty much all of it. I've restarted FFVII so many times but completed it far less, I'll be keen to see how I feel about certain parts when I get to them again (like you mention some of the mini games, chocobo racing etc - which I did bother with once...) It's been portable before but somehow I'm still even more excited and pleased that it's on Switch. Plus it has brought a lot of other people to it for the first time, or first time in ages, so it has a fresh feel about it all again!

    It is! By modern standards I suppose it can be a bit slow, but I rather like that about it now. I can dip in for a bit and just find it quite relaxing all in all. It has its flaws. Some I realise now more than when I was younger, like how the translation isn’t great or that elements of it are pretty simple really, or random battles being a pain in the arse. But it doesn’t matter. It’s still a really engaging story and just as addictive as it was all those years ago!
