Bravely Default 2 comes out tomorrow, and I’m feeling frazzled and desperate. I originally had it preordered, but when I got my last paycheck, it was just 2oo dollars when I’ve been getting paid roughly 400, I began panic canceling everything I could. I recently moved into an apartment of my own, costs 600 dollars a month. This is gonna be like, my second ever payment on rent here, yet I’m afraid I wont even have enough money for that. The situation has me at wits end. Like I’ve been caught up in a whirlwind and dropped off somewhere completely different. I lost a job due to depression very early 2020, and had to move back in with family. Turns out family was meth users and, as I already knew, very bad for my mental health. I reached out to a friend, and he got me in touch with one of his friends, who offered to let me stay with him in another state, and so I basically let go of nearly all my worldly possessions and moved 11 hours away. I got a job, lost a job and got another job, and was splitting rent with this guy for a few months until he found me this place to stay, and he was basically “you gotta go dude”. I never voiced my opinions on the cost or anything because I really didn’t have a right to intrude on this man any longer. Just…moving a lot and trying to get back on my feet within the last few months. I already took out the 200 from my ATM so I don’t do anything stupid like spend it on a video game, so that hopefully my next paycheck will be 400 and I can afford rent this month and not let down the people who helped me get to this point. I’m a generally depressed person, and on the Autism Spectrum, Asperger’s, so I’m not the best at just…lifeing very well. Bravely Default and Bravely Second are two of my favorite games, Bravely second in particular I played after my divorce in 2019 and I believe it was a breath of fresh air in the genre due to its ending; I’ve been very excited about this upcoming release , but the way timing works, I’m not going to be able to get it when it comes out on my own, and even then, probably not for another 4 weeks, since I’m paid bi weekly, and this next check is 100% accounted for by Rent. If I didn’t get food stamps I would be SOL on food. I don’t really have any friends who are in a situation to help me out for a luxury Item, I don’t have any Tax Returns any time soon but I really, really want this game. I know that If I cant get ahold of this game, I’m going to self isolate myself from friend groups and websites to avoid spoilers and that DEEP SINKING feeling of knowing I’m not able to play the game I’ve been waiting for. I actually avoid “getting hyped” for things as much as possible, because the same feeling of ‘want’ shows up inside of me, and stops me from enjoying other things or functioning well, so I often avoid reveal trailers and such, to live in ignorant bliss. I don’t know, I really want the game, and I know I should be worrying more about rent and bills and taking care of myself, but I want this momentary distraction from it all. If you read this far, or at all, thank you, no help is really necessary, but It would be appreciated. I’m also gonna like…try survey sites and stuff to try and get this game.
