Hello there dudes:
First and foremost Happy New Year!!!!!! I hope we all have a better year in 2011 and keep on going Giant Bombers :D
Well finally set 1 is complete , it took longer than I expected , the guilty culprit (aside chores and hopefully a job by making some designs) was to my surprise Folklore , boy that game is long , also it has way too many japanesy game designs that I no longer want to put up with , at least n the current gen of consoles , like the "famous" LOAD STORY SECUENCE ENGINE , CUTSCENE , LOAD GAME , take a FEW STEPS , RELOAD CUTSCENE ENGINE , CUTSCENE .... why can't they just make 1 bigcutscene and spare us too many god damned loads and wasted minutes?????? Add to this a very slow story telling and you wont want to spend too much time playing the game , so you stop and do other things. It was an ok game , it has good graphics for a 1st/2nd generation game for PS3.
Other game that I finished was Shin Megami Tensei Digital Devil Saga 2 , and although it also has the japanese game designs (really???) I was able and willing to put up with it , after all it is a PS2 gen game so those elements are forgiven , but the good thing ws that the loads times were very fast , to my surprise , I did do a lot of level grinding at the end , because I thought that the level I had at the end was enough but nope I had to lvel till lv 85. Beated it it was a good play , nostalgic in a way , also I noticed that this game is heavy with Buddhist elements (as if it wasn't ovious with words like mantra and atma) , and the end is basicly achieving a Nirvana state (sort of) ... so things worked out for the Embryon after all :).
Because I ws sure that I would be worn out of heavy JRPG elements the last game of this set was Dragon Quest Swords for the Wii , in normal circumstances I would have probably not liked the game , but its simple game progression , total lack of challenge (except the end boss , which I defeated with the last riposte at the last moment I could before I would have died with nothing to heal and the big boss attack coming ) very easy to follow story and cute designs , it was a delight , also its short duration (9 hours) was a change from the last 2 games that I am very grateful. If interested in this game I would give it a rental or it is a perfect RPG game for a child although there are some sexy ladies here and there ;) and even if you fight with motion controls (that aren't all that precise , but that's like all motion controlled games ) the game system is better than average.
Now I am playing Lost Oddysey and to my surprise I was on the fourth disk :) so it wont be as long as I feared , played a couple of missions to re introduce myself to the gameplay , but Im still tired of so much RPG so Im going to play me some Half Life 2 , then come back to finishing my unplayed games .... set 2 here I come >:)
If you are interested in my game of the year picks go to my lists , its the only one that I have , but if you wanna save some time I will tell you my #1 pick ....... roll drums.......
MASS EFFECT 2 :D its not just that I loved the game , it improved over the first one , delivered an incredible game experience and also its a game that I have played 5 time already and still I want more of it ... isn't that what a great game is supposed to do??? Make you play it a lot of times and enjoy it every time you do as if it was the first time
Well thats it for this blog and year , so have a good New Year and see you in January 2011!!!!
