I have the limited edition of this preordered.

Beat Jude's story of Tales of Xillia. Will do Milla's next so that I get the most out of the first game's plot before I eventually buy and play its sequel.

Also working on the fan-translated version of the DS version of Saga 2, and I'm enjoying it thus far, finding it to be infinitely more playable than future games in the franchise.

Beat Dragon Quest II iOS in about ten hours. Was surprised at how good at the game I was. Also still working on Tales of Xillia but am somewhat lost in one of the dungeons.

Reread the Hunger Games Trilogy in preparation for the forthcoming Part I of Mockingjay. It's a good series, but considering that it took me between two to three hours to read the final book, even with my slowed reading pace, it brings to light my trepidation on why there needs to be two parts to the film version of the last book.

Edit: Finished the Wheel of Time books and was satisfied with the series despite believing it still could have been several books shorter. Next I'll tackle Brian Jacques' Redwall series again.

So I defeated the enemy in the basement of Midenhall Castle in Dragon Quest II iOS to try and get the Princess of Moonbrooke's most powerful weapon, only I didn't seem to get it since I had all my characters' inventories full, and unfortunately I can't fight the enemy again. I'm not going to restart the game just to get it, but missable crap like that really pisses me off.

I beat Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days and Disgaea 4 PSV today, and was impressed with both games.

Also still working on Tales of Xillia and Dragon Quest II iOS.

My problem typically isn't with scores, but rather the actual review content, with reviewers sometimes downplaying serious problems such as Demon's Souls completely inability to pause, or exaggerating trivial flaws. Furthermore, if reviewers like games I dislike and dislike games I enjoyed, then I cannot take them seriously as reviewers. I guess a problem with mainstream reviews is that each reflects one person's opinion. What I would like to see is reviews written by multiple persons, by at least one person who liked a game and one who disliked a game.

Finished the Wheel of Time books written solely by Robert Jordan, and will break from the series to reread the Hunger Games books in preparation for the release of Part One of Mockingjay. Generally liked the WoT books better than when I previously read them thanks in part to upping the font size on my Kindle App, but I still feel the series could have been several books shorter.

I beat Valkyria Chronicles 3 and the iOS version of Final Fantasy V today. Was generally impressed with both games.

Also working through Disgaea 4, where I'm in Episode 8; Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, where I'm around Day 190; and Tales of Xillia, where I'm a few hours in.

I hope we get this, with DQ not quite being dead in the West.

I tend to not care about dungeon design as long as there are ample save opportunities and automaps. For the latter to be absent has in my view been largely inexcusable since A Link to the Past had them.

Gimel Coins (which let you save anywhere in the third game) would have made the fourth and fifth games a lot better in my opinion, given the craptastic spacing of save points.

Okami's a little overrated but good nonetheless. I didn't care much for things such as unadjustable text speed, the mumbling instead of voice acting, and some of the puzzles such as those involving Blockhead that required eidetic memory, but it was definitely a pretty game.
14  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: October 15, 2014, 02:35:45 PM
While I myself believe that Secret of Mana is a tad overrated, I think Seiken 3 is even more so, since everything that made Mana fun, such as the weapon and magic leveling, is gone, battles are sluggish and clunky, and I think the class system is a poor substitute, since you won't know what abilities you'll be getting before changing to a particular class branch, and finding out how to get the second class branch might require a guide.

Finished the Spellsinger series. Definitely love fantasy with talking animals. On the third main book of the Wheel of Time series, and they're definitely much, much better than I remember. Maxing my Kindle App's font size really helps me absorb the story better in small bits.
