Can’t Get Enough. . .

Bravely Default.

I am SO in love with this game. It’s been quite awhile since I got sucked into a good JRPG, and it feels great to love one again!

The game play is great. It has classic turn-based RPG combat with a few new things to change it up, which I love, along with the jobs/abilities you can customize for each character (think FF Tactics. This is a Square Enix game, so there are lots of similarities to Final Fantasy games).

One of my favorite parts is the little side-game of rebuilding a town that gets destroyed. You assign ‘workers’ (which are CPs if, like me, you have no 3DS friends to connect to in the area) and then rebuild the town in real time. For example, it could take 2 real life hours to rebuild a shop, less if you assign more workers to it. The time increases as you level up each building, and also explore new area to expand. What’s the point? The shops allow you to buy special equipment and items, along with learning new special moves and upgrades.

The only downside is that it is pretty linear. Exploration is often cutoff despite having an open world map, but that’s often a standard in RPGs. I just prefer being able to explore everything as I wish, even if it means getting into combat with a massively high level enemy and getting wiped out.

Currently I have this party: Thief (Tiz), Valkyrie (Edea), Ranger (Ringabel), and Red Mage (Agnes). Do you play? What classes do you usually use?

I first heard of this through Gamerwife, and tried it out. What is it? A ‘real life’ RPG. You create a character, make real to-do lists, and then for each item you check off, you earn experience and virtual rewards (think gear, items, in game gold, etc.) for your char. For the first couple weeks, I was very half-hearted about it. I didn’t input too many tasks, and hardly explored the site. But in the past couple weeks, I’ve really been using it to it’s fuller potential, and I am discovering virtual character rewards motivate me more than I thought. Lately, when I get stuck in the can’t-figure-out-what-to-do-so-let’s-wander-aimlessly mentality, I just refer to my lists on HabitRPG and actually accomplish something. I love the ability to add what I want, when I want.

To the left is my character and the others are all chars in my party. Isn’t my little shade panda cute?!

Is it silly? Slightly ridiculous? Absolutely. I am loving it. And actually using it for positive things. For instance, thanks to HabitRPG, I am now flossing my teeth every night, a task I used to loathe and rarely do. And while I still loathe it, I get the double whammy of knowing it is super good for my oral health, AND I get experience for it! So regardless of the fact that it’s a bit silly, I find it really works for me, and can’t get enough.



Can’t Get Enough is a series centered around sharing things I love. Be it websites, products, books or shows – anything goes! Now to figure out a schedule for it. . .
