I finished my spy book The Labyrinth Makers by Anthony Price. It was OK. I think the best one is a few books later in the series. There was a surprise cameo appearance by Lord of the Rings, though.

I decided that next up would be Battle Mage Battle! in which I read Battlemage by Stephen Aryan and Battle Mage by Peter A Flannery and decide which one I like best. I've started the former. (I'll probably read something else between the two.)

Remind me not to name anything I will ever write in some variations of Battlemage. The name had been done to the death, it appears.  ;D

I once read two books called 'Lost Gods' back to back, just because they had the same name.

I think something like that could actually work if a bit more thought was put into it.

I like a book to have maps, and it feels weird if it doesn't, but I don't usually pay them all that much attention. A skilled writer will make each location feel memorable and distinct and give the reader a vague suggestion of where everything is. If the location feels too fuzzy and loose, for want of a better term, then a map probably won't help much.

I've just finished Chris Wooding's 'The Braided Path'. Barely anyone seems to have heard of the series. I keep looking up reviews of it online to see if anyone else shared my thoughts on it and I can barely find a thing.

I'm mostly just watching lots of YouTube.

I haven't played it, and I'm not too into tactical games, so I don't know if it's quite what you're looking for, but Divinity Original Sin 2 has got a lot of praise and the first game seems quite well received as well.

Skyrim pretty much was my childhood. I got into other fantasy RPGs while I was waiting for ES6 to come out. I'm still waiting, but now I don't see how ES6 could top a lot of the others I've played. Skyrim will always have a place in my heart, but I've cooled a lot on the series to be honest.

I won't spoil it, but FFVIIR's infamous ending is really, really out of place and stupid, in my opinion. It doesn't ruin the game for me, and I'm still hyped for the next one, but it's laughably bad, especially when compared with how good the rest of the game is.

I'm probably going to go back to DMC5 and DS3 now.

For the most part, terrible endings don't bother me that much. That said, if I don't like the later books in a series, I won't have any plans to read them again if I go back to the series. Case in point, the only 'Traitor Son' books I ever intend to read again are the first three, and even then, the first one is the best one.

About to get started on 'The Last Wish'.

I'd go with books first as well. I prefer the series so far but I enjoyed it a lot more because I had read the books.

Looking back, I think it was better than the War of the Worlds series.

I'm about ten hours into FFVII Remake and so far it is everything I hoped it would be. It's a big improvement on FFXV, and FFXV was one of my favourite games.

I would love to read but most of my TBR pile has been left in my uni accomodation along with most of my games and I will have to wait until either lockdown is eased up or my contract runs out before I can get them back.

Finally completed Nier Automata. I'm really looking forward to playing the first Nier game as well.
