Bio
If I've blocked you and you're confused, I likely find you overly argumentative, aggressive or unpleasant, not over video game opinions.
————————————————
5/10 (2.5 stars) is the average or neutral for me, anything above is positive, anything below is negative to various extents. My favs besides #1 are often affected by my most recent hyperfixations. Sometimes they function as an example showcase of different things I'm into.
————————————————
I mostly review games here in order to create genuine, good faith reviews. I have disabled comments on my reviews from non-mutuals on this website due to how often provocative, bad faith, one liner Twitter, Reddit, 4chan or Discord-like "arguments" are made under even the most heartfelt reviews.
————————————————
Backloggd doesn't easily display other people's stalled/paused/dropped games, so some things that I have dropped or stalled may appear as "played" on my main profile game list with a rating.

I had no complaints with Zero until the last chapter, which was a bit of an underwhelming payoff, but until that point it was basically a perfect "setup game" with no dull moments. None of my issues from Sky FC are in this.

Aside from the mildly underwhelming finale, the "BRO WE'RE A CINEMATIC UNIVERSE BROOOOO" issue that I've been fearing with this series rears its head. In some aspects, it's really cool, what with the payoff for a character's arc in SC and 3rd (I started crying from it, it was so emotional). In others, you have the corny MCU thing of "heh, looks like I got here just in time!" and "wow [Crossbell character], you remind me of [Sky character]!" happening multiple times. I expect it to get both better with the payoffs, and worse with the corniness. But you take the good with the bad, I guess.

Otherwise, this is definitely one of the best JRPGs and videogames I've played. The combat system, characters, music, improved visuals from Sky, the Crossbell atmosphere, all of these contributed to a very fun experience. Can't wait for what Azure has in store.

Well, Trails has finally truly impressed me. This is definitely my kinda series after all.

3rd has decent pacing of things happening the entire time, though that is partially helped by its shorter length. The dungeon structure is preferable to FC's and SC's for me, and there is way less backtracking. It has a complex main character and a personal character-driven story. The combat system is mostly similar to FC and SC, but the way it ties into the story here more often is cool. Most of the 3rd music is the best in the series so far for me, especially the final boss theme and the OP.

Every problem I had with FC and SC have been fixed. Nobody is annoying anymore; a lot of the story is a love letter to the Sky games in general. Hell, some characters are better in this game than the previous ones. I even care more about Joshua and Estelle in 3rd than I did in FC and SC.

It's also got the majority of the emotional and dark moments (especially that one door) of Trails in the Sky. I genuinely cried to a few of them, which hasn't happened with Trails so far.

I will be continuing onto Crossbell with high expectations.

This game is gorgeous, the music is great, I like the characters and the gameplay is smooth like butter. The story is alright so far. The several year long wait was worth it. Really excited to play more
