TBH if you aren't worried about a few raids or a couple multiplayer zones, ESO is a very solo friendly game. I played through an absolute ton of the content a couple years ago with no issues and easily max ranked for the time. If you just want the lore and a typical ES experience, it's there.

Been playing Grim Dawn again. Got around to getting the expansion and am having a good time with it. Scratches the diablo itch really well.

Also noticed that THQ Nordic released a new expansion for Titan Quest after 11 years, probably gonna give that a try too because I loved Titan Quest.

Just started "Disc 2" of FF7, so probably halfway if my memory serves me right.

Forgot a bunch of details surrounding the big death. Cait Sith "dies" immediately before Aeris and for some reason I found it sadder, there's absolutely nothing sad or even dramatic about it since he's a robot but the scene just plays really weird like it's a major event. Odd.

The last interaction of Cloud / Aeris prior to her leaving the group is him literally beating the shit out of her. That's going to be an interesting scene in the Remake, definitely expect that sort of thing to be changed haha.

I never really got behind CloudxAeris, it seemed like that was the narrative the game wanted to take, Cait Sith pretty much says it outright that they are the OTP, but I guess at this point Cloud is Zack, so there actually never is any CloudxAeris, its all Zack and it was always Zack.

I'm gonna go back to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and do my "Foxiest of the Hounds" run and snag most of the trophies I missed. Gonna be a pain, but I love the challenge.

FWIW, it is significantly shorter than Human Revolution.

Completed storymode in Injustice 2 while taking a break from State of Decay 2.

Good story but think I preferred the first one.

I have now purchased Elder Scrolls Online.

Think the different mechanics and graphics to Skyrim will take some getting used to. Almost feels more like Fable 2 (the only Fable I played). Still, looking forward to getting a bit more in depth with it.

Startling admission time: "the big death" wasn't so much of a blow for me as it was many, as *I* was one who assumed Tifa in the first place. You have your big breasted, badass fighter, childhood friend on one hand and some random chick you just met who oozes that annoying, tropey "tee hee hee, look how frail and innocent I am" thing that is apparently culturally sexy, but I never got on board with finding that appealing so I never "got" it. Hell, I didn't know the Gold Saucer date scene was flag dependent, and got Tifa my first time through even though the game is set up to funnel you towards Aerith unless you knew how to do otherwise.

I didn't even use the flower girl all that much, and when I started using her a bit more, it was when she gets her best weapon with all the extra materia slots... which isn't all that long before she bites the dust. I was a bit more upset that I bothered starting to use her more RIGHT BEFORE she goes all Obi Wan. Could've been leveling someone else. Character wise, though, I wasn't really supper attached at all.

I forgot about Cait as well. And I actually remember thinking, when they revealed who he actually was, that the actual person would be joining the party for awhile. Then that never happened.

Cait Sith is one of the most interesting characters. That whole scene with him in the Temple of the Ancients is so confusing, like is he actually getting sentimental, or acting, or what?

Definitely one of the most interesting. When I played it when I was young I didn't really feel that way but on subsequent playthroughs as I got older I started to appreciate the conflicted nature of his character more and more.

Tifa was always the one for me. Aerith always seemed somehow distant and too carefree, like she wasn't really interested and was destined for something else. Still didn't soften the big blow when it happened though as I had grown to appreciate her for other reasons. That is still one of the most gut-wrenching moments in gaming history for me, up there with the death and resurrection of Crono and the subsequent scenes with Marle in Chrono Trigger.

Don't know if you guys ever experienced it, but the best Saucer scene is if you somehow get the date with Barret. That was glorious.

I did the Barret date on this playthrough, dude called me a spikey headed fucker and chastised me for not being into any of the girls. This was preceded by 20 seconds of awkward silence during the fireworks display and it totally cracked me.

Was pretty interesting that Cait Sith was the only hero who really called Barret out on his bullshit moral high ground, what AVALANCHE did in the opening was pretty fucking horrific but Aeris/th, Cid, Yuffie, Nanaki and Vince never even touch on the subject of joining forces with a terrorist cell.

Cid was too busy verbally abusing his wife to be on any moral high ground about terrorist cells.

"SIT YOUR ASS DOWN AND DRINK YOUR GODDAMN TEA!!!"

I do like his reaction to wanting to make him party leader after that whole lifestream thing... "Pain in the ass! Forget it!"

lol Cid is such a selfish arsehole, dude was willing to sacrifice the huge materia you've been chasing around Gaea for an entire disc if it meant he got to go into space, but he wasn't willing to burn Shera to a crisp so you know he must really care about her deep down.
