July was a very simple month in terms of my gaming time. I’ve been trying my very best to conquer the difficult tactical JRPG God Wars: Future Past and have also been trying not to get distracted so I actually finish it because it's taking a bit of time. I touched a few of my favourite console games when I needed a break and I also logged into some new and old mobile favourites to get some character rewards and be reminded I’ll never have enough time to truly conquer them. Although it was a straightforward month of JRPGs, I mostly enjoyed what I played and at the very least having a solid gaming direction, so here are all the JRPGs I played in July.
JRPG of the month: God Wars: Future Past
|Fun fact: While putting footage in the video version, I also noticed the PS4 version of God Wars is much prettier than the PS Vita version|
(If you’ve played or are playing God Wars too, I would love to hear how you’re enjoying it so far as my feelings about it are a little all over the place and I’d love to know if anyone feels the same or more strongly that it’s good or bad. Let me know!)
Final Fantasy Brave Exvius
I hadn’t logged into Brave Exvius for a while, but I was lured in by some Final Fantasy X character units. I absolutely needed to get Rikku into my party, so I took the little leftover Lapis I had and did some character gachas. I was lucky enough to get a four-star Rikku, which I was very happy about, and also got way too many Wakkas and no Tidus. I rolled for these and then didn’t actually play any Brave Exvius, which is a little unfortunate because I think I have another island to explore, but maybe at some point I’ll actually get some time to level them up and work on the story again.
Fire Emblem Heroes
Final Fantasy XV
I played Persona 5 both for fun and for capturing footage for my Persona 5 dungeon video, which is always nice as I’ll always take any excuse to play Persona. I’m still in my second playthrough and just cleared the second dungeon and got best boy Yusuke in my party. I haven’t spent as much time as I would have liked to on my social links, so I hoping to dedicate a day to this once I finish God Wars for a break before getting back into other stuff.
As a side note, sometimes I think about the eight months I played Persona 4 Golden when I first got my Vita years ago and I honestly wish I had the time to do this with Persona 5 too. If it was on PS Vita, perhaps I’d have more of a chance to do this and as much as I love it on PS4, I think I really associate playing Persona on my Vita. Maybe one day they’ll port it to Switch or something as it’s a wonderful game I wish I could play all the time.
