Hello everyone, and happy Friday! I was hoping to have a Thought this week that was a little more interesting, but it is taking a lot of effort and I didn't quite have time to work on it as much as I wanted to this week. So I had to come up with this, but I hope you understand! Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!
Over the past few weeks, I have been focusing on 3 games. Final Fantasy XIV, Persona 5, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It has been difficult finding time for all of them, but I am doing my best!
Starting with Zelda. After a little over 120 hours, I have finally activated all of the divine beasts! But I am no where near finishing the game. I still have a lot to do, and I am still discovering new things every day. I don’t want to spoil anything, so I won’t say much more, but Breath of the Wild is an experience that will not be topped for a long time.
Due to some unfortunate events, I had to stop playing Final Fantasy XIV as much as I usually do for a few months. But I have started gearing back up, and have a plan to get ready for the upcoming expansion. I have two main focuses; making a lot of money (gil), and training for the new raid.
Stormblood will be introducing a new housing area that looks incredible (pictured above), and I really want a place there. Especially since I have never been able to buy a house before. But to do that, I need a LOT of gil. To acquire it, I plan on investing a lot of time leveling up all of my crafting classes. Wish me luck!
But buying a house is not the only thing I want to accomplish in Stormblood. I hope to join a top tier raiding group as a Dark Knight. But while I am confident in my abilities, I have a long ways to go. I’m not sure exactly how I am going to approach it yet, but hopefully I figure something out.
And now the most recent game that I have been playing, Persona 5. Again, I don't want to spoil anything for anyone, but I have been loving the latest Persona title. I think it is almost crazy that we can have an RPG with as deep a battle system and story as Persona’s, and have all of the social elements on top of that. If feels like we’re getting two games in one!
Having said all of that, I can’t help but feel that we need more games like Persona 5. To be more specific, I feel we need more high quality, AAA, turn based RPGs. That is exactly what I hope we get with Final Fantasy XVI, but that is a thought for another day!
Be sure to leave a comment below, I’d love to hear about what everyone has been playing lately, and I promise to respond to everyone! But feel free to leave comments about what type of content you would like to see on the site, or any suggestions for that matter.
Have a good weekend everyone!
