The unthinkable happened too me.
I own more games than I have time.
That's a rare thing for me as often I play a few games front to back before I get new ones but lately I've been stocking.
More to life than games I guess, but that doesn't mean I can let myself get away it!
More importantly, there's games I started, which I loved so far, but never finished.
Let's take a look.
5) The Darkness
Holy hell is this game cool or what? Sure it's a bit odd and controls aren't super fluid, but the story and Darkness alone is more than enough for me to love it.
I played up to the bit where Jackie commits suicide and ends up in that hell dimension thingie...very cool stuff!
I know I could look up the story online, but I will return to this game to just live the enviroments and dark atmosphere that oozes out of every corner of this bloody marvelous game!
4) Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time
I adore the Mario RPG's.
They're simple for everyone to dig in, yet complex in combat and its combo's are really fun and satisfying to perform!
The best things about the RPG's is that they're so unserious! They are filled to the brim with references, cameos and little nods to anything Nintendo it makes my fangirl level explode!
I will try to get in a hour per day from now on.
3) Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies.
I dig it! Turnbased, class based and loads of loot!
I really liked the grinding and cross leveling for all the professions, as well as the crafting aspect! Real deep!
Story was great, but after 4 towns of "Go there, identify problem, solve problem, receive holy fruit, proceed to next town" I got really worn out for some reason.
I think I'm gonna book a vacation and bring only my 3DS with all my RPG's so I can catch up.
2) Dark Souls
Finally, a challenge!
Sure some people might roll their eyes now but I don't care, go jump off a rock!
The difficulty and seriousness of the combat is intense and punishes you wherever it can!
The controls and combat remind me of Monster Hunter and Phantasy Star Online, which are two of my favorite franchises, and for all its simplicity it feels really rewarding to know when and how to use all your (weapon specific) attacks!
I got to the Londo place (the bright city filled with giants at every freaking corner) and after some looking around I stopped playing for, again, no real reason.
I'm not afraid of getting back in and dying some more (fuck that knight with the harpoon crossbow on that ridge, fuck him to hell and back) but I'm afraid I might have lost interest too much.
The novelty of it all seems a bit worn off and I'm not sure I'm up for constant clearing from a checkpoint everytime you die or need to heal.
But I want to.
1) The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
I'm so, so, so, so sorry!
I love Zelda, I adore it and its my number one series ever.
Yet I got to the part where you start using the timebuttons to move back and forth through time and again...just didn't touch the game again for no good reason.
I need to finish this game and I will, the question is just when I will find the time.
I also must admit, for some reason the game is really eye hurting on my TV, yet every other Wii (or NGC game for that matter) is fine.
Guess I need to look into one of those cables...you know, those thingies right? Right!
We're spoiled gamers nowadays, yes we are.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who loves games even though they never fully completed them, but damn this needed to be said!
