I'm not dead, just a little busy.

Long story short, I live in New York now. I got a job at a rental trucking company as a service employee. I just bought The Evil Within and cannot wait to play it after work tonight.

I missed you all.

It was my birthday...two days ago!

I turned 22! Nothing special at all really. I just spent time with my girlfriend, went swimming, and just had an overall relaxing day. She got me a lot of gifts which I named off in my last blog. I figured I would update on some of the games I have played recently since I have nothing else to do.

 

3DS games

Samurai Warriors: Chronicles - The game got a lot of bad reviews, and I can definitely see why. The game is repetitive, every mission feels similar, almost everything looks bland, and the game dialogue is pretty bad...but I still like it a lot. Something about killing hundreds of people on a battlefield with a sword is satisfying. 

 

Paper Mario: Sticker Star Saga - Love it, absolutely love it. The game is brilliant, witty, smart, charming, and loads of fun. The story might be paper thin, but honestly that doesn't even matter for this game just because how much fun it is makes up for everything. Nintendo definitely brought back Paper Mario in a good style and at the perfect time.

 

 

PC games

Rogue Legaacy - A Fantastic game to the metroidvania style, and an even bigger homage to the games of the 80's and 90's. The game is balls-to-the-wall hard, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. The pleasure you get for actually find a stone, finding blueprints for weapons and armor, getting enough cash for upgrades, defeating a tough as nails boss, the game just feels fantastic. 

 

Awesomenauts - Steep learning curve is definitely a bit off putting, but is definitely a fun game to play once you get the hang of it. It's basically a MOBA type game, but on a 2D field with platforming. Definitely something you should try out if you're tired of LoL, DOTA2, or HoN.

 

 

That's really all I've played lately, but it's been keeping me pretty happy on the gaming front.

 

OH YEAH! Just incase you want to get me a late birthday gift, Steam has a major summer sale going right now and there's plenty of games on my wishlist. ;)

Two new 3DS games!

So today my girlfriend went ahead and gave me my birthday presents early! She got me...

3DS Castlevania hard shell case

Paper Mario: Sticker Star Saga

A Mewtwo figurine

Some Pokemon cards

A Phantom Hourglass Link plush

That's all I can remember right now, there might be something else, but I don't remember. Needless to say, my girlfriend is pretty great. :)

 

Games completed this year

-Soul Blazer (SNES)

-ActRaiser (SNES)

-DmC: Devil May Cry (PC)

  • DLC - Vergil's Downfall 

-Red Faction: Armageddon (PC)

  • DLC - Path of War

-Resident Evil 6 (Leon and Chris's campaign) (PC)

-Devil May Cry 2 (UGHHHH, Xbox 360 HD Collection)

- Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate (3DS)

 

Not a whole lot really considering most of these games were pretty short. My favorite two games I completed on this list are Soul Blazer and ActRaiser, the much older games. I'm slowly becoming a huge fan of the developer Quintet for making games like those.

 

Anyway, the reason I've been playing some older games I have is because my PCI-E slot on my motherboard went bad, so any new gen games I have for PC I cannot run...and I am too cheap to buy a new motherboard right now. :P I have a Ps3, but I never touch it and finished all of the games I own for it a year ago back when I bought it. I might borrow my girlfriends 360 again to finish Gears of War 3, but in all honesty I'm happy just playing my Super Nintendo right now. I've had a retro gaming itch for a while now, so this is the perfect time to get my fix.
