"This isn't a Visionaries' Dream... No, it's more of a Broken Reality..."
Ok, I leave for month and a half and this place FINALLY DECIDES to change up the set up for Blog Comments? GS, you make me wonder what's up sometimes xD. Don't get me wrong, I still love coming here and posting a blog and talking to you guys when I can, but this is like a culture shock to me. Plus for some reason, all most of comments on my older posts are gone . I don't know if it's Glitch Spot making it's mark again, but this definatly sucks if this is perminent. Aw well, the show must go on, so onto the gaming updates . Now yes, I have been playing a bit of my 360, but aside from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD, no, I haven't really played anything new on it... although I did just recently break 50,000 gamerscore, which is kind of cool I guess... yeah, I have no life ^_^!
So in my gaming life, it's been quite intersting. A day or two after I posted my 3DS blog, I ended up picking one up with a $20 E-Shop card, Kid Icurus: Uprising, and Super Mario 3D Land. Shortly after my purchase, my email notifided me that Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked both went down to 25 bucks during an Amazon Game's Sale, so I quickly snatched them up, giving me 4 FULL 3DS GAMES TO PLAY, on top of the 3 DS games I still need to finish xD. So for a while, my portable gaming is pretty full. Recently, I have finished both Ocarina of Time 3D and Mario 3D Land! Ocarina of Time was a good 25 hour run on nothing but memory and was an enjoyable distraction from Math homework, but was just pretty much playing the 64 game on the go with a better graphics. That's not a bad thing as it's really neat to see some locals transition so nicely in 3D, but I don't see myself replaying through to the game anytime soon, unless it's to speed run it or something xD. I guess I could play it again on Master Quest, but I don't see myself doing that anytime soon, espically since I just beat it sometime last week xD. 3D Land however was VERY ENJOYABLE! It's easily my favorite Mario game, no questions about it! The visuals are good (espiclaly with 3D turned on), the music is fantastic, the gameplay is fun, levels are exciting and varied, and the mix of 2D and 3D gameplay really works with what is given. Plus the game is desinged with portable gameplay in mind, so levels are about 2-3 minutes each, which is perfect for me as I thrive on my portable gaming!
Now the other 2 I haven't played for very along... well, Kid Icurus I have, but DSO I havne't really. I have put about 10 minutes into the game, so I don't really have a grasp on anything yet in the game. I will say so far, I find the Voice Acting in the game to be very anyoying. IDK if it's the actor's, the script, or what, but they just bug me. Maybe it's because right now, the story and writing screams cheesy genaric high school anime and I am comparing to the VERY WELL DONE Persona 3: Portable which had legends like Vic Mignogna and Michelle Ruff, but I am not going to say anything I say is set in stone, as again, I haven't played much of the game. Now KI:U however, I have put about 15 into and I have to say, I am not to thrilled with this game. I mean, there are things I like about the game, but the controls... THE CONTROLS ARE JUST AWFUL! I mean, I guess they are decent for what they offer, but it just doesn't work on the portable space. Gripping your 3DS with your Left hand to free up your right to aim with the stylus while shotting with the L trigger and moving with the circle pad will take FOREVER to understand and get used to. A buddy of mine has put over 100 hours into and said he didn't fully understand the controls until 50 HOURS IN! Sorry, but I have other games to play. I have only gotten to stage 6 or so, and I could beat it on a easier difficulty, but that's my other complaint: Difficulties are to varried! Difficulty 2-5 are WAY to easy, 6-7 is still easy with only the bosses being the only challange, while 8-9 and just frustrating, mainly because you are battleing controls that make it a chore to dodge and move the camera around. I know there is a lot to like about the game and don't get me wrong, I like a lot of stuff about it, such as the Saturday Morning Cartoon Vib of the story and amazing presentation, but this is kind of why I can't play Ensalved anymore: I like everything, but the gameplay and the controls. If I can't get behind controls, I don't care how good the story is, as I can only force myself so much to play a game before I say screw it! I mean, take Bayonetta for example: story wise, I will admit, is pretty weak and laughably just ok, but the gameplay is SO GOOD, it makes up for it. I guess this is just me as a gamer and what I like, as gameplay is usually more important then a story in portable gaming, but with KI:U, I don't look it as a portable game, as I need that stupid stand it comes with to make that controls a little more tolerable, so I am playing it at home, which is hard because when I am home and can play games, I am playing my console games! Sorry KI:U, you just don't stand a chance against games like Xenoblade and Skyward Sword.
Speaking of those two, I FINALLY BEAT SKYWARD SWORD! Only took me about 6 months of on-and-off playing the game and 52 in-game hours, but I finally completed the game, mainly so I could finally move onto Xenoblade, which I will get to in a minute. Now do I think Skyward Sword is good? Yes, but it's just ok as a Zelda title. Really, I only liked the beggining of the game and the end of the game, where the story and gameplay is really at it's peak! The middle junk for the most part was just... boring sadly. I mean, there where some very high points, like anything in the Desert Area of the game and some of the Master Sword Dungeons, but aside from that, Dungeons felt like chores half the time and the game tries way to hard to make things time consuming! The game drags on and makes you go out of your way to do something simple like go refill on potions and grab an item you may have left back at home. I mean, there was a point in the game where I in the middle of a Dungeon and I forgot a empy bottle, so I had to go back out the Dungeon, fly ALL THE WAY BACK HOME, grab it, and go back. That chore took me about 20 minutes to do, 20 minutes I could of spent DOING THE DUNGEON! The game is collect heavy, and not in the typical Zelda way, oh no! There is one point where you need to collect pieces to a single song and the game at one point litterally has you collect pieces of that piece of the song because the creature giving you the song doesn't think you are worthy, yet you went to her earlier and came back out with the Master Sword... ugh... It's just anyoying really! Maybe it's because I played Spirit Tracks before I played this game, and Spirit Tracks is vastly superior in comparision (with a better companion then Fi mind you), but when it comes down to it, the game just tries to hard to focus on to many of Zelda's strong traits, and doesn't really do to well in either of them. I mean, look at the last 3 3D Zelda games: Majoria's Mask had a smaller scale, but focused on a living in-game world and gave you the freedom to understand this world at your leasure. Because of this, despite the lack of Dungeons, the game was praised for it's dark atmosphere and living world around it! Wind Waker had very little dungeons, but gave you an entire ocean to just venture forth at your leasure! Because of this focus on exploration, the game was praised! Twilight Princess was the most story focused and easily has the most number of and most creative Dungeons in the series. It was praised by people who looked at that elements of Zelda. Sure, I guess you can say Skyward Sword was praised by people for it's controls and yeah, they are good, but once you get over that, the game just tries to cover to much ground, only coming out as just ok when you compare it to the other 4 3D Zelda titles.
Ok, enough about Zelda, now onto Xenoblade. Shortly after beating Zelda, I popped in Xenoblade and watched as 3 hours passed by from putting in the Disc to turing off the game realizing I was running late xD. I only started the game on Saturday and have already easily put in about 12 hours into the game, a lot for me in such a short, especially on the console space! I have not been this hooked on a Console JRPG that I didn't play on a portable since Lost Odyssey, which was back during my Freshman Year of College! This game does such an amazing job stream-lining my many problems I have with Modern JRPGs, and actually has a huge focus on exploration the most JRPG's do! It makes me think of a mix of Skyrim's Adventure Focus with a combat system addopting elements from Final Fantasy 12 and some MMO's, with it being real time auto attack/free move with Cool Down times for all your attacks! It's a intersting breed, but the key element that works is how it focuses on getting distracted and absorbed. You can build relationships with towns which are all opitional and have no effect on the player excet how much experince you get, but the game makes questing SO MUCH easier by not forcing you to go back to the person you asked about the quest (most of the time), it makes questing fast and fun. Plus you get EXP for it! You also get EXP for exploring this gaint place you are traveling through and finding new places is the fastest way to level up, and you will want to explore even without the insentive of levling up! The scale in this game is outstand and is a reason to play this on a bigger TV, and this is the first time I am saying this about a Wii game! Places look HUGE and specacular in this game, from gigantic waterfalls to brigtful forrests to step cliffs, this game has it all! The story is really interesting to and granted, the voice acting can get anyoying, but I think it's because I am not used to English (meaning from England) voice acting, and though the writing is cheesy at times, nothing feels forced and I am enjoying to story so far! At this rate, this may take a very high place in my favorite games, possibly top 5! It's hard to say right now as I still have a long game ahead of me, but as of now, it's on the right track . Now this may sound terrible, but I actually wish this was on the 3DS. The bottom screen would be great to put the clutter that is all the little windows like health bars and move lists, the game would look oustand in 3D with depth and all, but I think having a game that is this focused on getting lost in it's world would be great on the 3DS. With pokemon, I always get absorbed into the world, and this game would do a outstanding job of doing that. Add in some Co-Op and street pass functionality, and you have yourself an outstanding game! Maybe this just comes down to me wanting to play it anywhere, but I think this would make a great 3DS Port
Ok, that was a lot longer then expected xD. Sorry people, but I guess I had a lot to get off my chest xD. Hope you enjoy the blog and I will check up with you guys later, whenever that is xD! You can probably expect a post from me next week since it's E3 and all, but sadly I will not be going this year . Aw well, at least I will be at Anime Expo instead ^___^
So I know it has been a while since I posted a blog post and all, but I have been very busy trying to keep my math grade up. Now that mid-terms are over and I have a little room to breath, I decided to come to you with a quick blog asking for some opinions on something.
So recently, aside from playing really only Devil May Cry HD on a console (started SSX yesterday, but only played for like an hour before stoping), my DS has been seeing a lot of action lately. I beat Ghost Trick which was a fantastic experince, and recently started Pokemon Heart Gold (Skipped out on it when it came out and picked it up for really cheap, so I am finally playing them in wait for Black and White 2). Yesterday morning howerver, some happened. I started up my DS and noticed a tiny black line on my top screen. I ignored it just thinking it was a mark or something, but as the day went on of me on and off playing, it slowly got bigger. I tried reseting my DS and it didn't help the sitiuation at all. It has been exactly 24 hours since I noticed the problem and the line now cover half of my screen. I mean, it doesn't make it unplayable, but it's really anoyiying. I looked into it and it turns out this is a common problem with the DS Lite, and it's just an age thing about the system. I mean, now I think about it, I have had the DS since 2008, so the thing is like 4 years old, so I guess it was a matter of time before this was to happen. It's not the only problem with the system though: My L and R buttons don't work, my d-pad isn't as sensitive, and my bottom touch screen needs to be pounded to register a hit. Basically the thing is just at it's last lines of life. Now I probably could send it to Nintendo, but since the DS doesn't have a serial number (My DS LIte is a in-house nintendo DS Lite I got from my uncle), they won't repair it and I looked at sites like Nintendo repair and it's going to cost about 140 bucks in order to fix it. I looked at it and though this: I have micro, so I don't need it to play GBA games on it, and since I only use the thing to play DS games on it, why not just spend the extra 30 bucks and upgrade to a 3DS?
Now originally, I was going to wait until after this years E3 to decide on if I should get a Vita or 3DS to see what exactly they where going ot say about each system, but with this happeneing, it looks like I made my decision early. I mean, both Vita and 3DS have games I want, but if I want to play a PSP or PS1 game, I can just play it on my Homebrewed PSP, and a lot of the games on Vita I want are either ports of console games or remakes of PS2 games, with the only orginal Vita games I am looking at is Gravity Rush. The 3DS is not only cheaper, but also has more games I will for sure want the system for in the future, like any new Pokemon Game, the new Fire Emblem, and Smash Bros 3DS. Plus with Virtual Console on there (which I guess doesn't mater since I can play and PS1, SNES, NES, Genisis, and Gameboy game on my PSP anyways) and all my friends already having a 3DS, it looks like that is just going to win my heart over faster.
Now I am probably going to get one after work today as the black line will only get bigger, and I need to make some decisions now. I know for sure I am going to buy a Red 3DS with Super Mario 3D Land (bundle or not) because I have played it a few times at places like Target or WalMart and really enjoyed it. I will also be getting a $20 e-Shop card to buy a few Virtual Console or e-Shop games as well. Now I am most likely going to buy a second game, and this is where I am stumped. I could get Kid Icurus or Resident Evil Revolations as my friends have those games, but I am not really sold-sold on getting them. Dead or Alive Dimensions is cheap, but how long am I going to play a portable fighting game? I could also get Ocarina of Time 3D, but I know for sure I am getting Zelda Link's Awkening DX of the e-Shop and I already have OoT on my Wii, so what's the point? Ugh... I just don't know!
So basically, I asking you guys for your recomandations. What second game should I get? I would prefer something I can play with friends, but any game sounds good to me! Thanks guys and I look forward to reading your responces . I'm off to school now, so see yeah!!! I end this blog with some pokemon art
Quick little update: I am for-sure getting the 3DS at the end of the Day as the line is now a HUGE Gash on the middle left side of my top screen, making it really hard to tell how much health my enemy has on Pokemon . I also had a friend of mine tell me to get Star Fox 64 3D since I have never played it, but do I really need to spend 35 bucks on a game that has no online features and is about 6 hours long? Maybe if it was 20, sure, but IDK... if you guys know anything about this game (also remember, I have never played Star Fox 64 and the only Star Fox game I have played was the orginal on SNES), do you think the game is worth the price?
There was a long intro here, but I ran out of Characters for this blog, so I am summing it up: I am sorry I haven't posted in a long time, had a lot of stuff in life to deal with. Also no Anime Update because I ran out of room. Got it? Good! START GAME UPDATE!!!
- Xbox 360: Attack of the Arcade and The Modern Space Odyssey
So as the title says, my 360 gaming as of now is pretty good. I guess I will start with the Arcade titles I am playing. After temporarly putting Islands of Wakfu and All the Sonic Games (Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic and Knuckles, Sonic Adventure, and Sonic 06) I was playing on hold, I decided to start 2 arcade titles: Planets vs. Zombies and Streets of Rage 2! The first one I bought because... well, I wanted to play it again xD. I reviewd the iphone version of the game and I loved it, and I must say, the 360 version does a great job of expanding it. The extra modes are awesome and it's just as fun on the console as it is on the phone, and since everything is mapped to the controler, the controls issue is fixed, and the loading times are no problem on the console version. I am really enjoying it and I am almost done with the story. I am definatly going to grab every achievment in this game, so I might be playing it for longer, but I am loving my second playthrough of the game. As for Streets of Rage 2, well, it was only 400 MS Points, and I am enjoying the short time I have spend with it. It's a mindless beat em up, but it's the best one I have played thus far. It has a good amount of depth, and a KILLER SOUNDTRACK! I haven't played online yet, but I am sure I will enjoy it. I can't say if the game is good or not, as I have only gotten to like stage 3, but so far, I am enjoying it .
Now if you didn't understand the second part the 360 segment, then allow me to explain. If you didn't know, Mass Effect 3 came out yesterday, and back when the demo came out on XBL, I downloaded it and found myself loving it, espically the horde mode in it. A lot of fun with friends and have already spent about 15 hours in it alone. It's rather additing trying to get your characters up and find broken combos to beating the enemy forces, but it's still obvious that it needs work. The Matchmaking is awful, making Black Ops Zombies look good, and trust me, that's not a good thing, and some of the enemys are just cheap (LOOKING AT YOU PHANTOMS), but this isn't the main point I wanted to get across. Lately, I have been pretty bored on my 360, hardly playing the thing after beating and getting 100% complete in Sonic Generations 2 days after Christmas. Sure, it gave my brother time to put 90 hours into Skyrim (Tried it out and didn't like it at all, deleting my file after 10 hours of play) and 100% complete Batman Arkham City (Still have yet to play it), but I have kind of wanted to jump into a longer game on the 360, mainly an RPG (Probably inspired by my brother playing Skyrim to be honest xD). This demo kind of inspired me to go through all the games and then I remember that I owned the first Mass Effect, but never played it! I opened up my banished box (A place we keep the games we never play) and I found it sitting at the bottom of the stack, waiting to be opened once again. I popped it in my 360 and 40 hours later, I 100% complete my first playthrough on Hardcore, and loved it. Sure the game was really glitchy and the combat was not great, but the way the story is told and presented is simply inspiring. The game does a great job of sucking you into the lore of the universe that is Mass Effect and holds you in the entire time. Before you know it, you feel like one of those Star Wars fans, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I am currently playing through a second time with a different character, playing as a different ****and exploring my Renagade side (evil for those who don't play), and I am actually having more fun being a jerk to everyone rather the taking the nice route. IDK why, but it's just a lot of fun. Might play a 3rd time through as Female Shepard to get some other achievments and I am really interested to Samus Arn of Metroid: Other M play a good role instead of her terrible one in Other M xD. IDK if I will playthrough it, but I have every intention of getting Mass Effect 2 once I am finished with Mass Effect 1 and then, jump into 3 when I have sucked the life out of 2. After these... IDK, maybe I keep buying Bioware games and get Dragon Age Orgin xD. I have no idea if I will or not, but right now, I am only focusing on Mass Effect and adoring it .
- Nintendo Wii: The Legends Never Dies and Workin' My Mii!
So I guess I should cover the obvious first one: I am playing through two Zelda games right now! I am currently playing Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword, side by side. Ocarina of Time is more of a side thing, playing every now and again for an hour or two, then putting it down for a week or two. As for Skyward Sword, it's more sparatic. On and off, I will put a bunch of time in the game, then put no time at all. It's the only Zelda game I can say I am doing this with, and it's helping me decide if I really like the game or if I just find it ok. There are moments of the game I love, but when I get to a part I can't stand, I avoid the game as much as possible. Right now, I am at the second temple in OoT and at the Sixth Daungon in Skyward Sword. I am so close to being done with Skyward Sword that you figure I would be playing it more, but I really don't want to have to deal with the last of the tedious stuff that awaits me at the final hours of the game. Hopefully I will finish the game before the next month, but at this point, it's up in the air, as it requires to motivate myself to get over that long hump, and as of now, I don't have that drive xD. I really want to beat it before I get absorbed into the Xenoblade and I will, but I am just finding it hard to get there. I guess it is good that I am taking my time, but I would really like to hurry up and beat the game as well, so I can move on to other Wii games like No More Heroes, Other M (Might not even play that terrible game), or buy something like Rhythm Heaven or something xD. IDK, I just need to beat it NOW!!!
So I once again decided to use a really confusing title to basically say this: I sold out and bought Wii-Fit Plus xD. Ok, I didn't really sell out, as there is a reason for me buying the thing. Recently, my mother hasn't been feelling to well, and now that she is recovering for her illness, she wants to lose weight. The only problem is she can't stick with a program because she doesn't feel any interation, motivation, or acomplishment in what she is doing. Personally, I have also decided to get back to my rought work outs of Pool Training, but I know I need to prep my body for it first, and thus, I decided to buy Wii-Fit as a litle get-well get gift for my mom, and a personal training device for myself. I have had it for about a week now, and I have to say, she and I are really enjoying it. It does a great job of working you out (depends on how hard you work of course), and motivates you every step of the way. The game does a great job of getting you to check in at least once a day and inspires you to want to get better, which not to many work out programs do. I have already lost 2 lbs and my mother has lost 20 within the first 3 weeks of using it! Granted, she has more water weight to lose then I do, but it's easily the best 100 bucks i have spent on workout anything in a long time, and I look forward to using it when I get home today .
- Playstation Portable: Revisting Shadow Moses and High School... IN JAPAN!!!
So firstly, I found my PSP over the Christmas Break xD. I haven't seen the thing in almost 2-3 years (since I got it really) and found it inside a shoe box in the back of my closet while I was cleaning. I guess I must of stuck in in there with all the games for when I moved to my new room and forgot about it until now xD. The first thing I did (after charging and updates of) course was look at just how much the PSN store has expanded, including PS Minis, PSP, and PS1 games all playable on the little guy. I mean, if all this was all here when I got the little bad boy, I would of never forgotten I had one xD. Anyways, I logged into my PSN account and found I actually had about 50 bucks on there. With that bonus cash, I bought two games and the first of those games was Metal Gear Solid, the PS1 ****c that helped seal the Playstation's fate as one of the greatest consoles to walk this earth. I haven't gotten very far in the game (I literaly just sneaked my way into Armory looking for the DARPA Chief) because I have been distracted with my second purchase, but I am very surpirsed with just how AWESOME it is to play PS1 games on the thing. I mean, aside from not having L2 or R2 buttons, the game works perfectly on for the PSP control's and is actually a good game for pick up and play purposes. As of now, I don't have much to complain about EXCEPT the lack of Legend of Dragoon on the PSN store... Damn you Japan -_-
Now, the next game is one I have wanted to get into for quite sometime. Recently, I have had a tendency to fall in love with two Atlus games: Catherine and Radiant Historia, both of which where two of my best games of last year (never actually wrote out a list of best games, but maybe I'll get to that next week or so xD), and after hearing countless people recommend games, one series kept coming up: the Persona Series. While surfing the PSN, I noticed that Persona 3 Portable was about 40 bucks, one of the best in the series. Since it was techniqually free, I decided to download it to find out what the series is all about. Now, I am pretty deep into the game, about 25 hours in now, and I am feeling the end coming quickly. I only have a few more full moons cycles left till I have all the Major Shadows defeted, and I have to say, these 25 hours have been much enjoyed . In a lot of ways, the Persona series is very much like Catherine, except in an RPG format. During the day, you are building relationshps with characters, getting boasts in stats, shopping, going to school, and your normal day routine, basically prepareing your character for the many trails to come. At night however, you become a daungon crawler and work your way through turned based Combat that can only be described as Pokemon mixed with Final Fantasy. The whole combat engine is based on exploiting weaknesses of the enemy to try and get your mega combos going, and it can very excitting to find a great way to crush a really difficult enemy by finding there weakness. Both core gameply machanics (day and night) are done very well, and couple that with good characters, solid voice acting, and an interesting story concept and you have yourself a pretty cool game. Now I don't think the story was as moving as say Catherine and Radiant Historia, but I am enjoying it and looking forward to making it to the end. What I am really impressed with is the games way of keeping the formula similar, yet avoiding ever getting stale. I know I make the game sound really boring and predicable, but there is so much to do and some many reasons to micro-mange your time (you only have an in-game month to prepare for a gaint boss battle), that it mixes up your play **** and focuses of core game machanics. Couple that with daily events, special scinarios, and side quests, and you have yourself a fully realized RPG. It kind of takes a approuch from Dead Rising and Majora's Mask by giving you a intersting set of events in a set amount of in-game time, except not done as well. The reason for this is there is no way to go back and play these events unless you start a new game, and a 30+ hour game is to long to restart for my tastes xD. Overal however, I am adoring the game and awaiting to see if Persona 4 Gold is coming to the states, because of it is, I might consider getting a PS Vita instead of a 3DS... But 3DS has Zelda, Fire Emblem, and Smash Brothers... UGH!!! SO MANY CHOICES
- Nintendo DS/ Gameboy Advance: Spirit Dectives and Old Teams Return
So the I guess I should talk about my DS first considering... well, most people don't care about Gameboy Advance games anymore xD. I mean, people care, but most kids now a days don't even know what a Gameboy is xD. Maybe it's just me getting old, but I am starting with DS anyways. So after a good 2 months of not touching the thing, I decided to put Radiant Historia on hold (I am going to go back later and replay the begining of the story to grind and refresh my memory xD) and start a game I have been wanting to play for a good time: Ghost Trick. I am about 2 hours into the game and just finshed Chapter 2 and wow... just wow. The game is not only very original, but also very ambisous. I know the same team that did Ace Attorney worked on this game and you can totally see that in this game, but everything about this game is on a whole new level. The game does an amazing job of bringing gameplay and story into one, because one without the other makes the game kind of bland. The puzzles are excitting because of the story and the story is entertaining because of how the puzzles are set up. The game get's you the think in ways not to many games do and really awards plays for analizing situations that occur in the story and thrives on experimenting with the "Ghost Trick" to solve puzzles in a certian order, and even though have only finished the first 2 chapters, I am really stooked to see where the game takes this concept. It's a amazing game and I regret not playing it during the year, because if I did, I am sure it would of won my game of the year .
Now on top of this DS game, I am also playing two games on my Gameboy Micro, both of which I have played countless times before. The first is Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones. One of my favorite podcasts to listen to, Radio Free Nintendo, had a Listner Play Along (Called Retro Active on the show) where listeners would play along with the cast of the show and leave there feedback into a forum, and in a few weeks, the podcast dicusses the game and reads some of the forum posts on the show. Now when I had done one of these before with the game River City Ranson, which I simply did not like at all. This game however I loved, and decided to dust off the old cartige and see how far I could get. Within less then a week (10 hours in game), I beat with no problem and didn't lose a single character. I even got one of my forum posts read on the show, which was very cool . Currently however, I am trying to unlock all the secret characters, which requires me ot beat the evil Tower and Ruins levels without any save points and without losing characters. As of now, I am grinding them up, which is fine considering as I am really only playing the game while I am at work, which the game excels at thanks to it's portablity and it's outstanding autosave system that outmatches most games today.
Speaking of portablity, I am playing another king of portablity, except this time with a twist. I am playing through Fire Red on my laptop and thanks to all them cool stuff you can do with emulators, some actually made there own custom pokemon game through Fire Red called Pokemon Ash Gray. Now what is Ash Gray? Well... it's the entire first 2 seasons and 2 movies of the Pokemon anime, as you fallow Ash on his way to becoming a Pokemon Master. Now you can change some of the fates of the Mr. Ketchum, such as being able to actually beat the Elite 4 and claim championship, catch Mewtwo during the events of the first movie, and some other stuff, but it fallows the anime very closely, even giving you Pokemon Ash captures during the anime, such as the 3 starters. It even captures events such as Ash waking up late, Pikachu not listening to you at the begining, Charzard being a complete jerk and never listening to you no mater what badge you have, and all sorts of little details that really come from the source material. It's the way Yellow was meant to be and yes, it's a little glitchy and at times, there are things that happen in-game that the game expects you to know and most of the time, YOU DON'T, but for a fanmade game, it's really well done and a lot of fun! I am about 6 hours in (Just stepped foot into the S.S. Anne after beaing Lt. Serge) and it's a great to play with at school, since most people don't know who emulators work or are at school and it's a hell of a lot easier to play on my laptop when I have 10 minutes then the pull out my DS and play Ghost Trick xD.
So that about raps it up guys. I mean, YES, I am playing other games too xD. I got my competative Bayonetta and Brawl every once and while, but when aren't I playing those two games xD? I am also playing Chrono Trigger on my iPhone, but it's very infrequent as playing the game KILLS my battery and is really only good when I am waiting to pick up my sister out of practice because... well, she takes forever xD. Plus if I have my Micro with me, I am going to play that over my iPhone all day as I would rather save my batery for stuff like texting, email, interent, and all the cool stuff the iPhone can do xD. Alright, I am done for now. I hope you guys enjoyed this long overdue blog and don't worry, I promise to go back to my usual routine of once a week like I did before, so you will be seeing more of me very soon, but I can't make any promises. I'll try and that is all that maters. Thanks for reading guys and I look forward to hearing from you guys . Peace out!
