Specter of Torment

Seriously, this game is awesome. I can't wait for it to come out on Wii U/3DS so I can play it with a for reals controller rather than a keyboard.

Also I submit my thesis on Monday. That's cool.

Me playing Pokémon Moon

Me: "Hau just handed me a person named Max Potion. I think that's human trafficking."

KK: *bursts into laughter*

Me: *joins in laughter because he didn't expect that joke to land*

Another typical Friday evening.

Spirit of Justice

Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice and 3 more...
Finally, we got an Ace Attorney game with fun Apollo Justice cases! What was once thought impossible has been achieved!

Seriously, though, Spirit of Justice ruled. It definitely made up for Dual Destinies' lack of awesome. Also, the puns were taken up to eleven. No complaints here.

Although Case 4 was VERY out of place. Basically, the only thing worthwhile there was Blackquill's appearance. I didn't really like how they portrayed Athena in that one. <_<

Thoughts on Fates: Conquest

Posted by Dr. Akano , in Video Games Mar 21 2016 · 252 views

So much more enjoyable. I'm on Chapter 10 of Conquest (decided to switch it up), and already I feel much more positive. The characters have fun quirks and interactions, the plot is interesting, and I'm invested in finding out what happens next.

Glad that this version is my physical copy.

Thoughts on Fates: Birthright

Posted by Dr. Akano , in Video Games Mar 18 2016 · 294 views
Fire Emblem, Fates, Birthright and 2 more...
I've been playing Fire Emblem Fates for the last couple weeks on Hard, Classic mode. I'm currently on Chapter 15: Wolfskin of Birthright (got the Conquest cartridge, bought the other two as DLC). My thoughts so far:
  • Story: Eh. It should be good; it has all the prerequisites to be good. You make a choice between two warring families (which puts tension on everything and everyone), the history between Nohr and Hoshido seems complex and long-standing, the circumstances of your upbringing are frustrating/unfair, but all in all the story just seems to happen. It has so many things ready to set itself in motion, but instead is very stilted and lacks flow.
  • Characters: Hit and miss for me. Some characters are phenomenal (like Kaden, he's fantastic. Also, Jakob is so wonderfully British. I mean, Nohrian.), while others are just sorta meh. Also, Azura's A support with the female Avatar is the least satisfying support ever. They could have made it a lot more interesting/developing. This and the previous category have made me think to myself, "Man, I just want to play Awakening/Blazing Sword," which doesn't reflect well on this game. :confused:
  • Classes: Interesting/why? There are some new Hoshido classes that I think are cool (Kinshi knight!) and others that I prefer the classic classes to (Diviner << Mage; I really don't like Orochi and her horoscope nonsense. Mages at least learn their magic from study, not dubious astrology pseudoscience...). I think I'll enjoy playing Conquest a bit more for this reason, among others.
Also, I lost it when Garon says "Do it!" in the Opera House chapter. He looks a bit like Palpatine anyway, but it reminded me of the Game Grumps "Do it!" impressions from their Mario Party playthrough.

Lemuria

Posted by Dr. Akano , in Video Games Feb 04 2016 · 261 views

When I first played Golden Sun, I had no idea that this was actually a mythical place that some supposed existed in the real world. I also had no idea that lemurs were named with a common etymology.

Golden Sun

Posted by Dr. Akano , in Video Games Jan 25 2016 · 355 views
Golden Sun, Isaac, Mia and 2 more...
Just finished replaying the first game in the series, and it's still awesome. The world, the music, the characters, the story – all are so wonderful and charming. The soundtrack has to be some of the best music in video game history.

After the long, gruelling process that is inputting a Gold level password from my Clear Data (I don't have a GBA link cable with me), I'm now starting The Lost Age. I will miss Isaac and Co. for now.

Portal 2

Posted by Dr. Akano , in Video Games Jan 19 2016 · 297 views
GLaDOS, ATLAS, P-body and 2 more...
Just started playing this with my roommate (Friend: Toa of Friendship). I love it so much. The single-player campaign was awesome, and now we're doing the extra "future" co-op levels.

I love ATLAS' design. I wish he and P-body had opposite eye color.

Also, the free DLC is called Peer Review. This speaks to me as a scientist.

Cave Johnson is the best. I could listen to him talk forever about ignoring human rights in the name of advancing science.
