This pretty much sums it up.
Between Netflix and playing Final Fantasy VII on my laptop, I haven’t really done anything. I think I’ve even went into reverse mode. I figured I should start mapping areas, before I map anything I need to create tiles. So I made a few (read: little) tiles of bookcases and a little bit of flooring then I went to tackle walls. That’s when destruction mode came about.
I went back to a small bit of intro I had created and checked out what style I was doing for the walls as I was going to a bit of a hybrid between Legend of Zelda and …. something completely different. I love LoZ’s style because I like seeing all four borders and makes some technical challenges a bit easier. I also find it relatively hard to replicate it (and made it look anything decent) without reverting to a 8-bit graphic style. It just never looks right. With that said, I ended up pissing around trying to make it proper again. But failed. Got frustrated. Quit.
So, instead, I’m playing FF7. I’ve beat the game numerous times but I never really bothered with getting everything, limit breaks, the American weapons and all the enemy skills, let alone mastering all the materia. But wow, have I poured time into the game. I nearly have everything mastered and only missing a couple Level 4 limit breaks. I’m a turd. Tell me to get back to Mouse.
