Weekly Rundown - 06/25/12-07/01/12

Crap, I forgot again! I hope I'm not losing interest in doing these.

Games this week:

  • Xbox 360 - Mass Effect 3
  • Playstation 2 - Final Fantasy X-2
  • Game Boy Color - Pokémon: Silver Version

So! Anyway, to get the big one out of the way first, I played through the new, free DLC for Mass Effect 3, the Extended Cut! I did a much bigger write-up of it earlier this week, but succinctly, I liked it well enough, but I liked the original better.

I also started Final Fantasy X-2 earlier this week. I'm enjoying it so far. I'm at 10% completion, I think, and three hours in. I don't know if I like the combat system as much. Not that it's bad, but, I'm barely using it. I basically switch between Gunner and White/Black Mage for Yuna and leave Paine and Rikku as a Warrior and Thief, respectively. Maybe I'm just under-utilizing it or maybe I find more dresspheres and garment grids later that increase the usefulness, but, yeah. That's where we are right now with it.

And our Pokémon update! I'm 10.5 hours in and I've just beaten Whitney. Plain Badge! My team consists of Olette (Hoothoot), Muscle (Machop), Glen (Wooper), Sean (Flaafy), Dee (Bayleef), and Rocky (Onix). I had a Gastly named Patti for a little while, but then Olette learned Hypnosis and my entire reason for having Patti went away. Alas, Ladyboy has gone. I might switch Muscle back for him, I've never been keen on rolling with a Fighting type in my party.

And that's all! See y'all next week, I'm gonna eat dinner and play some more Final Fantasy X-2!
