Will play most anything: 2/13/13

Hello everybody! I know that none of you were awaiting the triumphant return of this blog, but eh, whatever. I want to try the new profile functionality on the site, and I thought I'd give this blog thing another go. I've decided to change the format to something less rigid too. Like the Bombcast! Yeah right. Ah well. Onwards!

Video Games!

Fire Emblem: Awakening

The game I've been playing most recently is Fire Emblem: Awakening. I started playing Fire Emblem because of Brisulph's Let's Play of Sacred Stones, which I then picked up. This was my first Fire Emblem game. I know that a lot of the fans consider Sacred Stones to be a weaker entry in the series, but I enjoyed it quite a bit. My second title was Shadow Dragon, and both of these games I actually beat, somewhat of a rarity for me. Awakening is a really, really good game. It's a huge meaty beast, with tons of content, and DLC to boot. I don't know about the pricing for the DLC stuff, but there is free spotpass content, which is a cinch to get. It's so easy, that I didn't know how to do it and basically accidentally downloaded a mess of characters, items and maps purely by turning on spotpass and ignoring it. It was a fun surprise when I finally checked that bonus box. There's been a lot of chatter that this may be one of the best Fire Emblem's to date. I wouldn't be able to make that judgement, but I can say with some certainty that it's one of the best games on the 3DS and that I can't recommend it enough to strategy and RPG fans.

Devil May Cry (DmC)

I decided to buy this game basically on a whim, having never played any other games in the series. I enjoyed it quite a bit actually. I can't make any comparisons, but I find the combat to be fun and engaging, especially on the higher difficulties. I'm not that great, most out of a lack of consistency I think. I beat the game on the normal difficulty, and have jumped to a Son of Sparda run, which is a lot more difficult. Some groups of enemies I'll dispose of with damage whatsoever, others will kill me. It's a fun skill based challenge. I also like the story a decent amount. I think the acting is good, and it takes itself seriously in a tongue-and-cheek sort of way. Almost like the fact that it's so serious is the joke? I don't know if that makes sense. Some stuff I think is a bit on the unnecessarily gross side though. Not a fan of that sort of thing, but it's really pretty minor.

Other things!

I don't really have much else to talk about really! In fact, I'm in a class that is starting right now! So, that'll be all! Keep you mind open folks!
