All About turtlethetaffer
I'm turtlethetaffer and I'm here to ramble on about whatever I feel like.
Hey everyone, I've been playing Pokemon White 2 recently (been playing other games and have been busy with school but I've finally really gotten into it).
So far, it's pretty good. I like how Ninty is continuing the story directly from the first games... It makes the game stronger, I think. Seeing how the region of Unova has changed is almost nostalgic, despite only a year between the two games. I also like some of the new locations, and the Pokemon World Tournament seems like it'll be fun to really sink my teeth into.
However, I can't shake the feeling of redundancy... I find that I'm not as interested in catching Pokemon since I literally just caught a ton of them in the previous game. While I'm sure that the new features will make up for it, I find it a bit disappointing that the game is still very similar to White/ Black. We'll see what happens when I finally complete the game.
Also, I will be writing reviews for both Dementium games when my finals are over (I'll be free by tomorrow ).
Hey, everyone, I've been featured on the Reviewers of the Month for April for my review of Dark Souls! Woohoo! Also be sure to check out the others, they are all well written reviews, regardless of whether or not you agree with them.
I recently bought Dark Souls... I figured "I should at least give it a shot. It's pretty cheap." Here are my impressions of it.
The game is pretty good so far. I can dig the combat and the deliberate approach the game forces you to take... I find that, for the most part, the game isn't too tough if I take it slow and approach everything cautiously. For some reason, I can't seem to stop playing it whenever I start.
Not ony that, but the graphics are pretty good. I really like the medieval art styIe, as well as the enemy designs (although it's slightly disappointing that many enemy designs repeat, but I'm not terribly far into the game yet, so I suspect that it will change). The armor and weapon designs are really neat, too, although I think the fact that you really only need one or two sets of armor max leads to little variety.
My only issues with the game are with the music and camera. First, I find that the music, when it plays, is really just your typical "epic" orchestra. Not bad by any means, but, to me, not very memorable. With the camera, I find that sometimes it's more of a hindrance than anything. Since you need to be as precise as possible with fighting, lock on is pretty much essential for victory in most cases. Sometimes if I'm in a narrow corridor, the camera will act out if I lock onto an enemy and it will obscure my view. I've died a few times from this, which goes against the general philosophy of the game, which seems to be "tough as nails but fair." Aside from that, I fidn that there are times where it's a touch too easy to fall off an edge, but it's very rare. Finally, the game sometimes has input lag. I've jumped off an edge before because the game had a delayed reaction to what I put in.
Aside from those issues, I'm definitely enjoying the game thus far. I don't quite think that it's the "amazing masterpiece" that many people say it is... But who knows? I have yet to beat it (the last boss I fought was Gaping Dragon) so my opinion could very well change. I plan on writing a review for it when I'm finished with it!
