Sooooo....SteamWorld Dig is quickly becoming my newest addiction. It's a metroidvania game I got on the 3DS eShop where you mine underground and collect various ore and gems, as well as weird orb things, which you trade in for upgrades, such as ones for your pickaxe so you can go deeper into the mine and get better ore for more upgrades. Or more pouch space so you can stay in the mine longer. You also find items in designated parts of the mine, which makes the game become more complex as you go. I'm really surprised by it. It's not the best Metroidvania out there (I prefer finding upgrades rather than buying them, but I guess that's the whole point of the game. Having very limited pouch space, while balancing the game a bit, is really only there to artificially lengthen the game), but it does remind me that Metroidvanias are my favorite genre. I've been playing it for about 5 hours now, and I don't think I'm even a third of the way through the game. That's pretty good for an eShop game.

Just read the whole review through, and it was interesting. I tried to skim the third to last paragraph, but I couldn't and just had to read the whole thing...which is okay, it wasn't as spoilery as I thought. Thank you for the well-writen review, now I'm very excited for the game.

Funny, I was listening to Final Fantasy V music the whole time I was reading it. Final Fantasy V is one of my favorite RPGs. Perhaps that's a sign?

Ys V - Just barely made it through the marsh cave, and the crystal was stolen from me by some comic reliefs...

Not sure what else to play for the next week until I get Super Mario 3D World...

EDIT: Actually, I could easily list a lot of scenes from Iron Giant. Very few movies manage to stick with me, but IG has been burned in my mind since I first watched it as a child. Honestly, the more I think about it, the more nearly every scene manages to move me in some way. Even if its not the most original story, I do feel its masterfully told, with a lot of subtlety, depth, and emotion strewn throughout. This particular scene always gets me the most, though, which I'll explain in a minute...

I don't get all the gripes about it.

As far as I can tell a lot of the gripes come down to whether or not its your kind of game. It's in a weird spot where it has too much gameplay to be a visual novel, but maybe not enough to be enjoyable as a game. I know I can't stand games that don't have a lot of gameplay, for instance, so I'm not going near it, especially after Heavy Rain. (granted, I do like games like Gone Home and To the Moon, where gameplay is minimized for the sake of the story, and the gameplay is meant to help with the atmosphere, but I kind of enjoyed those games despite what they were rather than because of it)

I was having a pleasant day at Grandma's house, until I ate a diet cookie, which I think had Splenda. I'm allergic to splenda. Within an hour, I had a migrain (which I still have right now), and everyone's voices were too loud (or at least it seemed too loud because of the migrain).

...Actually now my whole head is numb and a bit tingly. Not sure if that's a good thing or not...

Okay, that makes more sense. Also noticed Wikipedia didn't have a source for Shinovi Versus, so I guess I should've known better than to trust it.
1478  Media / General Games / Re: Xseed localizing Senran Kagura Burst on: December 28, 2013, 08:09:10 AM
It's not a fighting game...

Well, I guess there is a multiplayer versus mode, but that isn't really the main point.  It's just a name.

Wikipedia said it was a 3D Fighting game. :/
1479  Media / General Games / Re: Xseed localizing Senran Kagura Burst on: December 27, 2013, 10:34:28 PM
Oh wow, there's a fighting game in the series? Now that Arcana Hearts X Senran Kagura crossover I wished for is that much closer to a reality! =O

I found out that a certain someone finally finished translating Ys V, so I went and played that for an hour or so. So far it's eeeeeeeeh, okay. It's not the worst Ys game - that title goes to Ys 3 - but it's slower than the rest of the series, and while having an attack button, a block button, and jump button are nice, the combat is still pretty one-note so far, and probably will be until I get more magic. Unless I'm wrong, all you every use for your basic attack is your sword, and magic is the only bit of complexity you get. In the end it feels like Secret of Mana or Zelda, minus the variety. It's still fun, but I doubt it'll win me over anytime soon.


XCOM: Enemy Within - Still doing tutorials after a couple of hours, I kinda need it, though, this is a very complicated game.

And may I have your malted milk balls then?  Those are good!

Sorry, my bro and I ate them all. :$

Just thought I'd make this year's topic asking what everyone got over the holidays, since I didn't see one.

As for myself, I got:

A Link Between Worlds
Etrian Odyssey Untold
XCOM: Enemy Within
Pikmin 3
Ys: Memories of Celceta Silver Anniversary Edition
$$$100$$$ O_O
$25 Amazon Gift Card
Another $25 Amazon Gift Card (that didn't work)
Malted Milk Balls Bear Poop
A Maple Syrup Sampler Pack
A Shirt
Time spent with my family<3

I kinda wish I got something not-game-related, like a DVD or something, but oh well, still a very nice Christmas. I hope everyone else has/d a very happy holidays~

Thanks to Mesh's recent talks about the 3D Classic Sega games, I've been pretty addicted to 3D Space Harrier. Got up to Stage 8 or maybe even 9(?) before I ran into a lot of trouble on my last playthrough. I keep starting from the beginning after I use up all my continues (which happens fast, once you get out of the groove, it's hard to get back in it) in old arcade fashion. I've also experimented with some of the options, and I think I like the non-inverted touch controls the most, but all the schemes are good. I also have 3D Super Hang-On and an old favorite of mine, Shinobi III, to try out later.

I also started playing 2nd Super Robot Taisen Original Generations, and it has motivated me to put much more effort into learning Japanese because I don't know what I'm doing! I mean, maybe it's just because I'm rusty on the series (I went from playing them every 3 months in Japanese to playing them once this year in English...and having trouble then, too), but I'm having a lot of difficulty navigating these menues. I barely figured out how to save...after I already passed a decision point...

This is super exciting, but I kinda hope it's not multi-part, if only because importing's expensive. =P Might go with the Vita version just to chop off some of the price...

Woot, big KanColle update!  There's a new large ship construction option so Yamato is buildable!  And there's a Christmas event crossover with Arpeggio of Blue Steel in which you can get I-401!

...nobody cares, do you...

I want to build the Yamato. =[
