To kick things off, Darksiders II is now completed. I finished the game this morning and took a little over 17 hours to finish. As I stated before, I would finish four games this month and now this one can be taken off the list. I did enjoy my time with this game and will go back to try and achieve the max level for Death. I’m hoping to have a full written verdict up sometime soon.

With one game done, it’s time to move on to the next one on the list and that game is Parasite Eve. I’ve booted the game up a little after I finished Darksiders II and have made it to Day 2 right now. I’m not sure how long this one will take, but here we go.

Again I’ll keep everyone informed of progress. Thanks for reading and leave your thoughts.

Parasite Eve is the greatest game of 1998. Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise. If you take the time to fully explore everywhere a first playthrough can take around 10-12 hours from my experience. It's not super long.

@pr1mus I thought the game was longer. I'm already on Day 5 right now, so I'm sure that I'm missing a lot of things. I feel that I'm going way too fast with this one.

Day 5 is by far the longest. Almost half the total length of the game. So it really depends on where you are in Day 5.

Edit: Well maybe not half but at least a third of it.

@pr1mus I just started on Day 5. I'm located in the Sewers in Chinatown. I'm hoping this doesn't take long.

That part isn't too long. It leads to the meat of Day 5 which is pretty awesome.

Also there's the Warehouse. It's completely optional and not super long but can be pretty tough and might require some grinding before hand. Just know that at some point in Day 5 there's a point of no return and you won't be able to go back there or any previous areas.
