Finally beat Final Fantasy VII Remake. Much better than I expected it to be, and I thought the ending was appropriate. The action-based combat took me a little while to acclimate to, but once I had it down, I didn't have much problem. My biggest complaint would have to be the camera. I really wish you could zoom it out away from you more during certain boss fights so you can see around you better. Other than that, it was a great action-RPG. Looking forward to the next part, but I doubt we'll see it for at least 2-3 years.



Now, I'm starting a series that's been in my backlog for awhile. Wild Arms. I played the first PS1 game several years ago, right after it came out on the PS3's "virtual console" and that's the only one I've ever played. Since I've already played WA1, I'm going to start with Alter Code: F, since it is essentially a remake of Wild Arms 1.

BoF IV was great. I'm slowly re-playing thru BoF 1 on the Switch when I'm bored. Haven't played it in a very, very long time, and I've always loved the classic SNES ones.



So, what's everyone here's opinion on the FF VII Demo? I really liked it, for what it is. It reminds me of XV in some ways, but I find the combat better than XV. The music is kick-ass, the voice acting seems good, and the enhanced story seems interesting. I'm really interested in seeing how materia works, and the leveling system. Getting close to release, so I'm getting excited.

As for my 2019 RPG year-end review, I would say it was a good year for the genre. I only played a few newly released RPGs (Tales of Vesperia DE, Fire Emblem 3 Houses), and crossed a few off the backlog (Battlechasers, .HACK//G.U., Phantasy Star 1, Persona Q, Xenoblade Chronicles 2). There's also a couple RPGs that I picked up and put down without finishing (Xenoblade Chronicles 1, Dark Rose Valkyrie).


Of all the RPGs I played this year, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was my personal favorite. Its so much better than I thought it would be, and I'm looking forward to a New Game+ replay sometime in the future. My biggest disappointment was Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It's a good game, just not as deep combat-wise as I was hoping, and the bits in-between the fights could sometimes get boring. (IMHO, the X-Com strategy games were better SRPGs.) My biggest surprise of the year was Battlechasers: Night War, since I did not expect that game to be as good as it turned out.


Going into next year, I'm currently still playing Bravely Second. The story gets a little better as it unfolds, but it still isn't as good as the first, and I still hate having to pick acquiring one job asterisk over another. I'm holding out hope that there's a way in the post-game to get all the jobs.


One of my 2020 New Year's resolutions is to play more backlogged RPGs, especially from my PS2 collection. I still need to start SMT: Digital Devil Saga 2, and I now have the entire Wild Arms collection to play thru. Lots to keep me busy. As for new games, I'm looking forward to disappearing into Persona 5 Royal, then there's the Xenoblade Chronicles 1 remake, and am still optimistic about the FF VII remake. There's a few other RPGs I'm watching out for (Tales of Arise, Cyberpunk, Darkest Dungeon 2, etc) and I hope to be surprised with other new RPGs.
