Its awesome against the mooks cause you can practically powderize them with blademode. And if you don't ragequit against a boss called Monsoon, you have more patience then I Razz

Also; CQC doesn't have to be deadly. Just KO them. At some points in the game it's just easier to absorb bulletfire and put every enemy soldier to bed. Some may call that cheating, I call it efficiency.

So I just beat Ghost Trick, quirky little puzzle game from the makers of Phoenix Wright. The gist is that you are a recently deceased person who wants to find out the truth behind his murder and who he was before he died, but he only has till dawn to do this. He can travel trough telephonelines and manipulate objects to move from place to place and has to prevent people from getting killed.

And the story from there on out is pretty good, though the puzzles can be nailbitingly frustrating. The jail and the submarine in particular were so bad I needed to carefuly study their gamefaqs entries.

The final plottwists are some of the most hilariously awesome twists I have ever seen in a videogame.

Who you think you are
Spoiler:



Bananahead Johnny Bravo

Who you actually are
Spoiler:



Further spoilers
Spoiler:

The main question that plagues you trough the final half of the game is; who is this somehow immortal murderer walking around that looks like me, and this gets explained almost perfectly. I was incredibly afraid when it began hinting at 'space magic' but it took that concept and fucking ran with it. My face when I figured out you were actually the murderers cat was somewhere between sheer disbelief and laughing out loud.

Also, the spirit inhabbiting the lamp that instructs you in the beginning for the tutorial? It's an alternate timeline version of the Pomeranian dog called missile that follows/aids you troughout the game.



All in all a very frustrating game, but I kept coming back for the funny story and to find out what would happen next. The ending may just be one of my all time favorites.

I've fallen in to the trap called Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

I'm not sorry.

I've now expanded my house 3 times, completed my first public works project, and caught 50% of the fish in the encyclopedia. Now I owe Tom Nook 198000 Bells.......

Oh man, I'm happy. Today I went to a carboot and bought PC copies of The Dig and Simon The Sorcerer 1 and 2. I've talked about The Dig before; it's one of my favourite games and absolutely nobody has played it. I'm really pleased at getting Simon The Sorcerer. It's an adventure game about a sarcastic teenager who gets sucked into a fairytale world, given a pointy hat and told he's a wizard, then tasked with saving another wizard whilst dealing with all the idiots/madmen who live in this world. It's very funny, the humour and dialogue borders on cruel and it lampshades the whole genre. The backgrounds are absolutely gorgeous as well, I think the best I've ever seen in a game before. When I first played it it took me over a year to complete since this was the days before the internet and you couldn't simply look up a walkthough. Wonder how long it'll take me now...

Just an example, the opening credits and some of the areas you go to:



The music, oh God, the nostalgia! I spent many days of the my childhood listening to that main theme. Mainly cursing as I got lost in the forest again.

Had to restart halfway trough Unepic (very metroidvania-esque game) because I broke the it.

Took a lot of poison from the third boss. And because that shit keeps ticking away your health, even in cutscenes, I teleported to the save/healpoint the moment I killed the boss. I return to the bosschamber, the boss is gone and the key never dropped. To add insult to injury, I did get the dialogue for beating the boss. fffffffffff

Taking a break from FE: Awakening and playing Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity. I'm a bit wary because even though I love the MD games I've heard reports that this one isn't very good, but I thought I'd play it before I judged.

First off the difficulty really has been scaled down. You choose who you play as from 5 Pokemon as opposed to the 15+ before and there's no hunger stat. Dear God, the hunger stat. At one point in the first game you get chased across several dungeons by a lynch mob with nothing to eat but the stuff you have on you and what you can scavenge. I was literally grubbing for seeds and wasting my most powerful healing items to stop from starving to death. Well, that's all gone now, so you can fart around in dungeons as much as you like. No balancing exploration + hunger now, there's no risk to it.

The graphics are all 3D now too instead of sprites. The game has really lost a lot of its charm because of it I think. They're just graphics copied and pasted from the 3D Pokedex instead of sprites unique to the game, sigh. Haven't heard much of the music to judge, since MD games tend to have brilliant soundtracks.

Also, on a personal note, you can't increase the text speed, arrgh! It takes goddamn ages for text to scroll past in conversations, and it's even worse when you level up. This is really going to grate as time goes by. Also fuck the menu system, both the general menu and the in-battle menu. It's nice to be able to choose attacks but there's so many button combos it's ridiculous. Several times I've walked in the opposite direction instead of launching an attack.

I'm leaning towards the negative so far, but it's still early days, it might improve.

Fuck Gates To Infinity. Fuck it each way to Sunday.

I can't beat the first boss because of how ridiculous the gameplay is. In the previous games you can equip a single item to each of your team mates, and if it's a healing item they can use it reflexively when their HP gets low. Do they do that in this game? No, they hold the item and do fuck-all with it. It's decoration or some kind of hair accessory. Well, since you can't control your partner's actions, I can just use the item on them myself, right? No, because for some stupid reason you using an item on them takes up BOTH your turns. So the boss can smack you around some more for free and negate the healing. Well, I'll just concentrate on myself and let my partner fend for himself. No, because if he dies it's game over.

This is stupid. I can't heal in the fight so I can't win. And since you can't skip cutscenes, every time I restart the fight I have to go through an extended period of dialogue. Grrrrrr.

Holy bipolar posting Batman.

I'm feeling pretty glad I stuck with Gates To Infinity. Yes the graphics are a bit rubbish and yes the mechanics take some getting used to, but God damn it's making me remember how much I love the Mystery Dungeon world. It's full-on high adventure with total bros by your side. The townsfolk NPCs are decent characters too (though I never full trust townsfolk after the first game, where they turned into a frenzied mob and chased me half way across the map trying to lynch me). And of course, being an MD game there's some pretty dark and fucked up moments. One major character gets outright murdered in front of you completely out of nowhere. My biggest holy shit moment came after finding out the meaning of the lights. Earlier on in the game pretty lights started appearing in the distance, slowly floating upwards. All the townsfolk go up to the hilltop to see them and everyone is oo-ing and ahh-ing over how pretty and sparkly they are.
Spoiler:
Turns out the lights are the souls of other humans who got turned into Pokemon like yourself. Kyurem is hunting them down and slaughtering them one by one, and the lights are their souls being ripped from their dead bodies and cast back into the human world. Yup.

Man, I am so tempted to get back to writing up my PMDRP rulebook. Or at least run another game. The MD world is great.

Just beat Bioshock Infinite with me mates. Great game; ending is plenty confusing, but Homestuck prepared me for these time/space shenanigans.

Also replayed the entire ace attorney series this summer.... I came to the conclusion I really didn't like the third game (though Godot is awesome). Tried to nuzlock all pokemon games before the summer vacation ended, but only managed to finish the first 3 gens.

So I now have an xbox 360 so I have a few games to play (apart from Path of Radiance which I'm borrowing so I need to play more of that). I have been playing a bit of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, and actually got to start my own file of Saints Row 3. Going to have to decide between Dragon Age II or Fable II to play next, heh. Also there's Sonic 06...yep, that is definately a game.

Also I bought the Metal Gear Solid HD collection and Saints Row 4 which I should be getting within the next week or so which will be cool.

And now I have all these games I'll be going to Victoria in like 2 weeks so all I'll have to do is make my way through Apotheosis in Fire Emblem: Awakening since I'll be away from my wii and xbox. :U

I've had Catherine sitting on my shelf for the best part of the year, I've just never got round to playing it. I really should though, it looks a fantastic game. Also Perry could totally cosplay Vincent, just saying.

I've been playing "Papers Please." and now I feel like a horrible person. Even if I let the subversives through they're targeting public works and citizens, not government officials.

Also, I always overlook the issuing city and have gotten so many citations from that.
