Unlike June, July was a bit of a bad month for me, when it comes to gaming. Don’t get me wrong, I did manage to play some games but I didn’t get to spend as much time as liked playing games. Still, let’s take a look at what I did play.
Let’s start by talking about the game I’ve made the most prgress in this month, Final Fantasy VII. Since the June post, I’ve finished disc one, acquired all possible party members and even got Aerith, Red XIII and Cait Sith’s final limit breaks. Also, Cloud was not picked by the creepy guy and Tifa was the one that went with Cloud on the date. So, as you can see, I’ve made quite a bit of progress. I think I was a bit ambitious thinking I get Final Fantasy VII completed in one month, especially as this is the first time I’ve played it. Still, I’m glad that I am taking my time as this game is amazing and it can be quite emotional, with Cosmo Canyon and the end of disc one standing out as incredible moments. It still has along way to go to surpass Final Fantasy X, but so far I’mloving the game and can’t wait to see where the story goes.
The next game I spent quite a few hours playing is Fire Emblem: Three Houses. I actually bought Three Houses last year and started toplay it but, as usual, got distracted. This time I’m much more focussed and have made quite a bit of progress. I’m currently playing throught the Blue Lions storyline but I’ll definitely be going back and playing with the other two houses, as well. Like with Final Fantasy VII, I want to take my time and enjoy Fire Rmblem: Three Houses. Its an amazing game, filled with lore but it remaisn to be seen whether it is better than my favourite entry in the series, Fire Emblem: Awakening!
Let’s move onto MMOs and this last month I’ve actually been active with two of them. The first is Final Fantasy XIV, whichmy boyfriend and I are playing through together. We are now firmly in the Heavensward expansion content and I have to say, I love Ishgard. Wintery environments are some of my favourite locations within video games and combine that with the gothic architecture, Ishgard has fast become one of my favourite places in Eorzea. Its just a shame I have to be there with Alphinaud.
The other MMO I have recently got back into playing, is The Elder Scrolls Online. My main character is currently working through the Ebonheart Pact areas. At the moment, I am half way through the Stonefalls zone, which is definitely different to the green forest zones of the Aldmeri Dominion. I haven’t been taking part in the recent events, as I’ve gotten burnt out on the Indriik mounts. I wished that the developers had decided on a different type of mount for the 2020 events, as I’ve gotten bored of farming tickets for the same mount, just with a different skin. At least this allowed me to focus on the game’s main content, rather than get distracted with events!
And that is everything I did July. As I said earlier,I didn’t complete any games but I have made some serious progress with some of them. My plan for August is to try and finsih Final Fantasy VII and Fire Emblem: Three Houses. If I get time, I will probably pick up Code Realize: Guardians of Rebirth again. Now, its over to you guys, what have you played in July? Let me know in the comments below and I’ll talk to you soon!
