    Sep 26th, 2018 at 19:02:02     -    Four Last Things (PC)

    I played for about 30 more minutes. I was lost for a long time. I was trying to find everything I could click on. I was able to figure out that you could grab this empty jug and fill it with beer. I tried drinking it and got an achievement for alcoholism. This game is great at displaying unethical behavior in a funny way. It is still seen as negative, but your goal at the same time, is to be unethical. I finally figured out I could give the beer to the drunk dude and continue the story. I was able to commit the sins of wrath and gluttony. Now for the elusive sin of lust. That sounds weird. I still can't play without constantly thinking of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    I started playing Four Last Things. It is definitely reminiscent of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It creatively uses popular art from the renaissance era for all characters, and backgrounds. This game is full of an irreverent humor. You are trying to be absolved of all your sins, and apparently you've committed all of them. As a crack at old catholic parishes and forgiving sins for money and as a business, you have to commit a sin of each of the seven deadly sins, so that you can be absolved of all sins related to such. The interactions that I've seen so far tend to be whimsical, and an interesting clash of modern humor trying to fit into a renaissance narrative. I'm not sure how long the gameplay really goes, but I feel like I played through a large amount of it already. I have been able to fill all but 2 parts of my inventory, and I have already committed sloth, envy, and greed. With the items I have, and the NPCs I've ran into, I know I am close to figuring out Lust gluttony, and pride. Which means wrath is the only real mystery I have left to solve. This may be the only game I complete for these game logs. I played the game for about an hour and thirty minutes.

    Today I played for a little over an hour. I was attempting to catch up on all my side quests, or sub quests as this game likes to call them. I wasn't able to finish a couple, because I am a little low on levels. So I decided to continue with the main story. I found out that my earlier guesses weren't accurate. I still get the feeling something fishy is happening with YoRHa and the humans. But I saw some dead aliens, and the machines that killed them. It's interesting how the machines have basically duplicated the androids. War seems to go in an eternal circle.

    Today I spent a lot more time exploring the game. I often feel like a completionist, because I want to do everything I possibly can. I try to find all the items, and do everything I can. I spent a lot of time trying to find all the save points, I tried some fishing, I did a lot of sub quests, and a bit more of the story. During all this I found a couple new weapons, which I thought were pretty cool.
    Through some of the quests I did, I ran into some more interesting moral issues. The theme park full of neutral machines, and then the village of friendly machines. So obviously not all the machines are evil. Maybe they were programmed to be violent, but also to learn. Well now they are learning and some are deciding to take to being peaceful. Were the robots really made by evil aliens? Or was it a human plan that backfired? Are the machines just an early creation that lead to the creation of androids? These are the questions I'm currently having. Some of this is based off of my experience playing the game, and the little tidbits and clues given. The rest is just me being quizzical and through experience with other stories. I played for about 2 hours today. Still loving my experience so far!
