This is why there’s not been much progress lately… Sony’s fucking me over.
That’s more like it.
So, the first day passed a few hours ago. How far along the game have I gotten? Well, I’ve acquired the canoe from the wise men as well as having defeated Lich (The Fiend of Earth). I had forgotten the long fetch-quest. Remember that one?
The one where you have to get the Elf-Crown that gets you the boss that gives you the magic eye that you then give to the old lady who gives you a Potion for the sick Elf Prince who then gives you a special key that opens up doors including one in Cornelia that gives you nitro powder so that you could help the Dwarfs take out the wall blocking the path outside so you could defeat Vampire to achieve that star-stone-thing that you feed the giant golem so you can get the item to go into the Lich’s lair…
THAT IS ONE LONG FETCH QUEST THERE SQUARE, THANK YOU… At least the Ocarina of Time fetch-quest wasn’t mandatory. Oh well, I’m still enjoying the game (barring uneven encounters) and I’m running along at nice pace. Also, fuck cockatrices man, they’re the worst.

So, the game is on. The first game is obviously the first Final Fantasy and I’ve been playing for about an hour now. I’ve named my party (Tobbii, Willem, Amber and Ritsu) and made my way towards Elftown in my new ship. Basically I’m about 1½ Chapters through it already. I’m guessing I’ll be done around Friday at the latest, Final Fantasy (1) isn’t that long of a game once you know where to go, most time is spent getting lost on the world map. Still, the game is as fun as always. But I’ve got to be honest, I don’t miss random encounters.

On Tuesday the 18th of December 2012 the long-running Final Fantasy series celebrates 25 years. From that day until the 17th of December 2013 I will attempt to finish a bunch of Final Fantasy games, some that I own and some that I’ll need to buy in order to play them. What are the rules? Here are the rules.
Games: Every game in the main series or with a direct link to the main series.
Course: The game must be played from start to at least one ending during the course of the year, I can’t use save-files I currently have saved. The only exception to this rule is the two Online games which I will simply play actively for a week or two.
<strongOwnership: I must own a legal copy of the games I play myself, I can’t borrow or pirate them.
