Sorry for no post in quite sometime, but I have just been uber busy with games all last week and mid-terms for the the next two days... I am already set for winter break to happen xD. Anyways, it's been about a good... oh... 13 days since my last blog (That is pretty long xD), and I have been doing a decent amount of gaming since then, so without any more stalling, let's jump into it:
1) So as the title suggests, I have all of a sudden had a HUGE craving for Metroid games, and I have no idea how it started really. I know I am going to get a lot of hate for what I am about to say, but I am not exactly a huge fan of Super Metroid. I mean, don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but I found it frustrating when I played the game and it can be a huge pain when you can't figure out where to go next or what tiny little block you need to get ride of because the game never tells you -_-. Anyways, because of this and my desire to play this, I considered getting Other M, as it only 20 bucks on amazon and I kind of wanted something quick and painless. Then I came across something I had though I lost years ago... My old copy of Metroid Fushion for my GBA! I whipped out my SP and began to play it... and I really don't see how I didn't beat this game when I was younger. I thouhg it was the hardest game in the work back in like 7th grade, but now I just find i really easy for some reason. IDK if it's cause I am older or because I actually read the map and understand that if all else fails, shot or bomb every wall xD. Anyways, I just beat it about an hour ago and I really came out liking it a lot. Without using a good, it took me about 5 recorded hours to beat it, but if I count my deaths, it was probably around 7, granted I was also item hunting (yet I still only got 50% complete somehow xD), but I can actually see myself replaying it very shortly for a faster time (the speed run effect common for Metroid games). This did re-light my interest in the series as well, as I am most likey going to order the Classic NES Metroid GBA game (it's only $12 new on Amazon xD) and will probably order Zero Mission as well just to compare the two. Hell, if I enjoy this enough, I might even consider trying Super Metroid on more time (This time with a guide) and might even get Metroid Other M just to see if it is really as bad as people make it out to be T_T
2) Despite the fact my GBA, iPhone, and Wii have been getting a good amount of action lately, I can't say much for my 360. I will occastionally jump on Gears 3 once and a while (Basically when friends are online or I just want to play some Horde for an hour or so), but I was playing it a decent chunk about a week ago. Why is because I got Rage, and it's actually just alright IMO. I mean, Yes, the graphics are very pretty and the AI is amazing, but once that novelty wears off, it's just alright. The Gunplay is pretty genaric and it's pretty easy, even on the hardest difficulty. I mean, I am happy I bought it as there are a lot of positives (Racing is great, AI is good, ect), but I can only see myself playing it periotically in little chunks as I could never sit down for an hour and race through it (No Pun Intended xD). Maybe over Winter Break I will invest the time to finally beat it, but it's going to be hard when I not only have Metal Gear Solid HD Collections on the 360, but the fact I will have Xenoblade AND Zelda: Skyward Sword to play (Plus the portable games, but those don't count xD)... well, it's just going to be tough xD.
3) Speaking of games to play, my Portable systems have been seeing a huge chunk of my gaming time right now. Radient Historia has already devoured 25+ hours of my time and it's still going strong, I just beat Fusion and will probably replay it again pretty soon, Fire Emblem has been a good retread on my Wii (Funny part about FE is that it's a lot easier then I remember it being, but then again... this is like my 20th time playing through that game again xD), and my iPhone has been seeing a good amount of my gaming at work/school. I recently have been playing Ace Attorny again and I am finally about to finish the terrible Case 3 (The one about the Movie Star 0_0) and move onto the next case which from what I have heard, makes up for Case 3 . On top of that, I bought a little game called Game Devloper Story, and it's a lot of fun. It's funny, has a great 16 bit artsyle, and let's face it, raiseing a video game company from the ground up and devloping games throughout like 20 years of gaming is a pretty awesome presence. I can see a lot of replay value for the this already, as it keeps track of high scores and rewards multipule playthroughs with it's trial-and-error gameplay. What's even worse is after all this, I STILL have Ghost Trick to play AND I might purchase a Micro hear pretty soon, as the asking price right now is around $75 for a new one and my SP is quickly on it's way to calling it an end, and since I don't have any Gameboy or Gameboy Color games anymore (Sure I have them on my computer, that is different xD), it's a smart buy on my part I think. Plus, I have a prettylong list of Portable Games I have made for myself to try or play on my DS and GBA (Example: Metroid Zero Mission, Dragon Quest 9, Professor Layton 1, and some more)... but then again, since I am never home anymore, I have to get my GBA fix in somehow xD.
Yeah... so that about raps up this blog. I know I promised a review, but it's coming. I might right one after my last Mid-Term, as I would really love to get my mind off of school for once xD. Anyways, I am done with this blog... so until next time, stay gold people, and I will try to comment back xD. Let's end it with a pretty cool pic
