That's a shame; I really liked Chocobo's Dungeon 2 on the PSX, and the one (whatever the hell it was called) on the Wii was really neat, too. Have you played the Wii one? Is it any harder than that? I often struggle with the Fushigi na Dungeon series, but the chocobo ones usually hit the mark for me.

That'd be a neat idea, but that'd be something like playing every PC game ever made; it's basically impossible, because you don't know what kinds of half-eaten donuts exist in some dusty old machine rotting away in a basement somewhere. What I was actually doing is playing through my backlog in sections:
FDS
NES
NES Hacks
PC game alphabet marathon (because when the hell else am I already going to have a Q game?)
DRM-free PC games
Steam
GOG
Game Boy (hacks and not)
Game Gear

I've also been having lightning rounds to play one of each category that I haven't finished yet. Not sure why I'm doing this; something in my brain told me to, so I'm running with it.

Is that a new Chocobo's Dungeon, or is it a remake?

Is that so? I'm surprised to hear that. Not because it's you, but because it's anyone; I've always thought of them as very niche and at least a little self-serving, but I took the Anna Anthropy philosophy of game design and applied it to that feature: we should write the articles that we want to read. But you're not wrong, each one is at least slightly autobiographical. Looking at Islands from that angle, I can definitely see it as almost an interactive version of one of those, especially one of the weirder ones.

Metal is within my range, yes. I'm picky about it, but I'm picky about most genres. I tell people that I like a little bit of everything, and by that I mean both that I like a little bit of everything, and that I like a little bit of everything, which is why I usually don't like radio. Also, the one genre that I cannot and WILL NOT tolerate is Polka. I don't know if that's childhood trauma speaking or just straight-up hatred, but I can't stand Polka. Weird Al's cool, though. Anyway, I do like this, but lyrics are usually lost on me, because I often have a hard time understanding what singers are saying. That and with the synaesthesia, I'm seeing the music, but voices usually conjure up specific images of people (not always or even often accurate), rather than the instruments, which are more abstract and colorful. Metal and Rock are typically in the red/orange/rust/sometimes black range, which has a chain reaction with touch, making me feel hot, so I listen to it more in Winter than Summer. For me, though, it's not usually blocky; maybe spiky, but still... ephemeral? Like fuzzy/airy/liquidy? I think the hardest part about synaesthesia is describing the specifics. Anyway, this chick's voice has a sort of white with a hint of teal to it that has an interesting contrast with the guitars. It also reacts more to sound fonts, so to speak, than actual notes, which is why my lady thinks I'm tone deaf, but I got through Finding Teddy, so that can't be entirely true.

Okay, yes, but I'm written in a language that most can't read, and the book's not exactly open; many have spent much more time on it than you and gotten a lot less out of it. I can't decide what blew my mind more: the fact that such a game exists or how well you have me figured out. Are you secretly my best friend? Are you at home, helping your husband brew craft beer right now? I kid; the only video game she's ever played is Super Mario 3D World, and you're one of the few people that I don't have to worry about missing my obscure SNES RPG references.

She's the closest anyone's gotten, and that's only because her brain works in practically the same way; that's how we became best friends. We have the same taste in practically NOTHING, but we understand each other in such a profound way that not even our respective significant others really do.

DSORELGSDLKFSDFSDLKFSJD *3 hours of incoherent sputtering, largely built on profanity later* Islands: Non-Places! I don't really even know what to say! It's like they cracked my head open and made a game based on the stuff that didn't devour their very souls! It brought back memories I'd forgotten 30 years ago. I... I don't even know. I can't thank you enough for recommending it to me, though; that might've been one of the most amazing things I've ever experienced, and I don't use that word very often.
You are yourself. There's no one else you could be.
