Have I mentioned how Insanely fun Octopath Traveler is? I feel like I haven't said that enough.

 

I'm having a hard time seeing how anything is gonna stack up to this and God of War this year. RDR2 and Spiderman better be on top of their game.

So I'm playing Octopath Traveler.

 

About an hour in, I started realizing just how massive an itch I had been having for a good JRPG again. I'm please to say Octopath is scratching it quite nicely.

 

The combat system is a really nice twist on turn-based (yes, turn-based, not "active time" like the PS1/2 era Final Fantasy games) that's built around a pretty breakneck pace. Best way I can describe it is giving an old school FF game Persona combat.

 

So there's the 8 characters, and you can start the game as any one of them, and find the rest from there. We've got:
 

-Ophilia, the Cleric

-Cyrus, the Scholar

-Tressa, the Merchant

-Olberic, the Warrior

-Primrose, the Dancer

-Alfyn, the Apothecary

-Therion, the Thief

-H'aanit, the Huntress

 

I started with Therion, and have gone on to get Alf, Prim, and Olberic so far.

 

For better or worse, if you've played a typical JRPG, you're already well aware of what kind of game this is.

HYPE THRUSTERS SET TO STANDBY.

 

A few days after the Halo Infinite trailer dropped, Marty O'Donnell (the composer of the Bungie-era Halo games, and Destiny 1 before he was fired without cause during D1's development) posted a winky wink comment on twitter:

Nobody thought much of it, since it was a piece of music he had come up with years ago. But then, a few days ago, couple of people met up with him at a Seattle coffee shop. You might know some of them.

So that's Joseph Staten (Head writer of the original 3 Halo games, currently works as Overall Senior Creative Director for Microsoft Studios), Jen Taylor (Voice actor of Cortana and Dr. Catherine Halsey) with Marty.

 

And then just a little bit ago:

Either he's trolling us real good, or Marty's coming back to Halo, and then the WHOLE band is officially back together. Marty, Frankie, Joe Staten, and the voice actors.
