1.) Brandish - The Dark Revenant
2.) The Legend of Zelda -  A Link Between Worlds
3.) Danganronpa - Trigger Happy Havoc
4.) Muramasa Rebirth

Finally got around to clearing Muramasa from my backlog after I bought it on sale last year. Got involved in playing Tales of Hearts R and made it a good portion of the way through, but got side tracked by the immensely fun Demon Gaze as I'd been hankering for a DRPG. Just unlocked the 5 character slot, but still need to level that wizard. Currently fighting the Mimic, but man it keeps healing!

started listening to the MOTY casts on my drive in to work. I really like the use of the music playing in the background while you guys talk about them. It really helps refresh my memory as to what I liked/didn't like when I have to stop the podcast every so often.

Keep up the great work!

Re: Mickey and the Haunted House,

I had this book as a kid too...is this the one you were talking about?

Here's the narrated version on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IznDzYDTNFE

1.) Brandish - The Dark Revenant
2.) The Legend of Zelda -  A Link Between Worlds
3.) Danganronpa - Trigger Happy Havoc

Just going through and polishing up the trophies for Danganronpa, I think this may be my first Platinum. I tried and  with Lightning Returns and P4G, but just lost steam on the second playthroughs for each. Anyways, Danganronpa was over the top in a lot of cases, but I enjoyed it, and it definitely rekindled my desire to play these VN type games again. I'll look at getting Dual Destinies (does it ever go on sale?) but will likely pick up Danganronpa 2 in the mean time.

1.) Brandish - The Dark Revenant
2.) The Legend of Zelda -  A Link Between Worlds

Total blast from the past with the latest Zelda game, though surprisingly very, very easy. I did love the choose your own adventure path in terms of being able to grab all the equipment early on, and tackle whatever dungeon you wanted. That being said, I went about 85% of the game before I got the Pegasus shoes (my mistake) but just goes to show how some items aren't necessary at all. I think I beat the game without having encountered the Red Mail either (I assume it's in the game??).

Regardless of it's small faults, it was an absolute gem to play. Coupled with the super stable 3D on the new 3DS, it was even better. Play time was around 16hrs 11min, and I didn't die once.

1.) Brandish - The Dark Revenant


Totally had fun with this, perfect game to pick up and go. It isn't difficult, but it does require you to pay attention. Basically any time I died, I knew exactly why. Great game. Now to decide what to work on next...Tactics Ogre or Neptunia Rebirth....

Been going through FFVI  for the first time. For whatever reason it was the one FF game that never really grabbed a hold of me. Anyways, playing it on iOS and am in the world of ruin, really enjoying it so far. However, now that Brandish is out, that might take away some of the game time I had allotted for FFVI, so we'll see. Both are very fun.

So Brandish was released yesterday. I picked up late last night, will give it a swing on my break. Anyone else? Between this and the PSN sale that's going on right now (on top of the fact that I ended up renewing my PS+ sub) I added to my backlog that didn't need to grow.

Edit:

did the tutorial and a bit of the first level. Fun game with excellent music. Will definitely be spending some time with this one.

Been a few months since I've been able to play any games. Getting married, settling down, I  find I have less and less time to game these days. Just beat Dragon Quest I for iOS. It was a bit different from the Dragon Warrior of my childhood, but still a fun time. Working on DQ2 now, and have got FFVI and DQ8 (still) on the go as well. Maybe I can beat one more game to make it a game a month this year.

Been a while since I've had time to game since getting married (whirlwind of activities let me tell you), and am still trying to find time to do so.

That being said, I picked up Tales of Hearts R (about 40 minutes in), and I rather enjoy it so far. Sure they renamed the main character from Shing to Kor (any explanation for that?), but everything else considered the initial moments feel...well, fairly solid to me. Looks pretty good on the Vita, and is about what I would expect from a handheld Tales entry. About 40 minutes in, and I feel like I enjoy the combat more than I did in Xillia, as it feels like it has more flow. Of course, I haven't gotten a whole lot of artes or anything, but like I said, so far, so good.

Also grabbed FFVI for iOS when that sale was on last week. Was going to grab IV and V, but will wait for another sale to do so. Now I just need to find time to squeeze in some gaming. Will likely never, ever get around to the new Dragon Age, which saddens me somewhat.

Having an absolute grand old time with the mobile version of DQ VIII. The fades away after a point in time. 40 hours in, looking for pirate treasure, and while I do miss the voice acting, I think it's good as it stands. I'll be picking up the port for DQ I-III for sure, and then IV-VI when the latter two get released as well. DQ on my mobile? Too good not to have.

Dragon Quest I hits the app store today, should be around $3 to $4 based on the New Zealand App store, so for anyone that hasn't had a chance to play one of the grand daddy's of RPGs, here's your chance.

Temper your expectations accordingly, this is a 28 year old game hahah.

Started SAO Hollow Fragment last night, it was pretty late so I didn't play much, but from what I did, I enjoyed it. Seems to have quite a bit of depth, so I will look foward to hitting it hard today when I get home.

Dragon Warrior Sev....oh wait, never mind.

In all seriousness though, my PS4 is screaming for an RPG.
