I’ve taken a break from an MMO to play an RPG har har and so I’m going through my STEAM backlog which consists of mostly single player Final Fantasy games I bought on sale a while back. I actually began this game back in November of last year but FF14 updates kept me busy and I ended up dropping the game…until now! Unfortunately because of this I completely forgot what the hell actually happened in the story and I pretty much just stumbled my way through the rest of the game on EZ mode by increasing my stats/gil to max just to see the rest of the scenario. 😂
It’s a miracle this FD was released because it finally contained the content I wanted to see in…the last one. 😂 Most of the contents of the FD takes place with Cardia’s poison gone except for Sholmes and Cantarella routes. And now on to the fangirling (and emoji spam lol)!
I didn’t realize it’s actually been 2 years since I finished Code Realize since the English version actually only came out a year ago. Due to this I was a bit rusty on what happened but fortunately the after stories gave a brief review of what happened in case people like me forgot. The FD also adds an original mafia gang story as well as routes for Finis and Sholmes (which take place as if they were in the first game’s story.) The final section is a little bit of time Cardia spends with Dela-chan’s daily activities.
It’s 1853 in the outskirts of England where our heroine Cardia lives forever alone in a dirty abandoned house because daddy told her so. By living alone she basically just sits in her room all day wishing for her life to end because nothing really matters anymore. The queen’s royal guards lead by Leon Hard (I swear I think it’s Leonhart lol) break into her house to try and capture her. The thing is, she’s not an easy pray because her dad has coined her a “monster” due to the fact that anything she touches melts like it’s being burned with acid. When one of the guard dogs tries to bite her, it melts his face off. Fortunately, master thief Arsene Lupin rescues her and then tells her that she has a stone on her chest called the Horologium which was implanted into her body by her father Isaac Beckford. Lupin is on the search for both Isaac and those who are behind the terrorist attacks in London. Since Cardia wants to find her father as well and figure out wtf he really wanted her to do, she comes along and so their steampunk adventure begins.
