I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas holiday! Mine actually had more gaming than I thought it would. I’m so used to family glossing over or downright ignoring my video gaming hobby that I have zero expectations about gaming every year. But I keep forgetting that I have an awesome mother-in-law, who actually bought me a bunch of Mass Effect stuff from the BioWare store. Of course it’s not cold enough now to wear the hoodie, but that should be fixed in a few days. I’m really excited to have a new hat to draw names from when I have my guide giveaways!
My hubby also gave me a N7 skin for my new Kindle Fire, so I have plenty of Mass Effect love to go around.
We traveled down to my family’s abode for the holidays, so I sadly had to say goodbye to my gaming consoles for a few days. I packed my PSPgo to play more Final Fantasy V, but I ended up starting the original Final Fantasy on my iPad. On so many levels, that game is so ridiculously simple. On many other levels, it’s a bit complicated. I have never played the original FF game before, and I expected to get bored with it like I did FFIII. It doesn’t have that great of a story, but dammit if it’s not addictive to play.
Of course, let’s see what I have to say about it when I get to a point where grinding is mandatory. I’m doing all the side quests I find, but I will rage quit if I have to grind outside of side quests, like I did FFIII. Life is too short to grind just for grinding.
