Skies of Arcadia – Review Blurb

August 5, 2008

Skies of Arcadia

2003 – Gamecube

This is the first game in a long time where I want to complete every aspect of the game because I’m having fun, and not because I simply feel obligated to complete all side quests because I bought the game. Usually I go for the anti-hero type of main characters, I’m not usually too fond of main characters that are through and through good guys…but I like Vyse a lot, he makes the cut. He manages to be a good guy without being a cheese ball. Also the lack of romance in this plot is a welcome change of pace from most RPGs, they just want to be awesome pirates and explore the world. I like that simplicity, it manages to have a great story without involving romantic emotions (something I felt FF12 failed at).

Octomania – Review Blurb

Octomania

2008 – Wii

So why on earth did I buy this totally random game? The person who made this game also made Puyo Pop Fever which I had fun playing at a friend’s house a while back. Plus it was $20 new with free shipping.

Nanatsuiro Drops Limited Edition Nendoroid

August 5, 2008

Nanatsuiro * Drops: Touch de Hajimaru Hatsukoi Monogatari [Limited Edition]

I had fallen in love with the Limited Edition Sumomo Nendoroid. But alas all seemed lost because she was part of a set of items that would cost over $100 after shipping! I could not justify spending that much on a single nendoroid even though I admired those little pjs and that cute ram of hers! I have a DS but there is no guarantee that I’d enjoy the game (especially since I can’t read Japanese) so I could not take a risk. This set went on sale for $37 on Play Asia, which isn’t even more expensive than a regular nendoroid without all the extras!!! Too bad I was on vacation with no internet during that sale 😦 but eventually more sets were listed at $49.95! I could justify buying a nendoroid and my first Japanese game for that amount. I’m actually quite curious to see if I can fudge my way through the game! I’ll keep you posted after I finish…or fail at completing!
