Coming Soon: My Year in Gaming

Posted by Ektris , in Video Games Dec 01 2015 · 10 views

With no new Pokemon game this year (that I picked up), my blog was rather lagging in any gaming action. Sure, I picked up a good number, but I never really talked about them. All year long I kept wanting to write out more of my thoughts on various titles yet never got around to it.

Luckily I kept a spreadsheet of all the games I played and beat this year to pick from! Because I'm a nerd like that. Just first need to double check that I didn't end up making entries for some that I forgot about haha.

So we'll have a few Halos and Assassin's Creeds of course, but also really got into episodic games this year and dipped into a few things via Games with Gold I might not have otherwise considered. One in particular I keep thinking about whenever I want to write about a game. Plus it'll get me active here again, so that'll be cool. I plan to write the first entry some time this week.

Until then-

So much came out this month that I had my eyes on. Wow. And circumstances had me able to get a lot of it right away that I probably would have waited for honestly.

Transformers: Combiner Wars, man. So freaking awesome. And except for Powerglide, I got all I want from the first wave already! Thank you, for once, HasbroToyShop. I also snagged Chromia and Brainstorm from there, since they were completely skipped over (as the last wave of 2014) by stores here. And cemented my interesting in Masterpiece, we also have Ultra Magnus. This guy is huge and incredible and I love him.

I finally got hardcore into Amiibo... Yeahhh... I really hate Nintendo for how they're handling these. Pretty much going to preorder from overseas starting with wave 4 just to make sure I actually get everything. But hey, some of these are pretty darn cool - like Bowser. That guy has some nice heft to him and the detail and paint work is incredible. By far my favorite so far.

Duke and Kirito actually arrived at the end of December, but, well, I wasn't here to pick them up, so here they are now. Kirito looks great, but man is getting his swords into his hands just an absolute pain in the butt. Duke is yet another addition to my growing cast of Gaim and... eh yeah, wasn't too excited for him, but I do love his yellow lemony self in hand. Saber 2.0 finally also saw release after a couple delays and while I haven't messed with her too much yet, she's also a fine addition and Archer won't look so odd on the shelf by himself anymore heh. Luigi is... eh. What I expected based on Mario and looks good, but definitely not the best that Figuarts has to offer. Oh, and I picked up some more Star Wars books to add to the backlog while looking for calendars. I hate seeing that Legends banner. Hate it so much. But dang, those are some nice new covers they made for them!

What's left... Hmm... I don't...

Oh yeah! BIONICLE, baby! I meant to go slow with them, since they should last until the summer wave, but just a few weeks after their release and I already have 5/13. Oops? Ah well, when LEGO offers you free shipping, why not take advantage of it haha. It feels so great to have new BIONICLE sets in hand and all of the ones I have really impress me. Can't wait to finish off the wave, but that'll probably take some time.

I also did buy a pair of bookshelves and finished putting them together yesterday. About half of the rearranging is done now. So some time in early February will be a new collection update.



Merry Christmas! - The Haul

Star Wars, Game of Thrones and 3 more...
Hope everybody who celebrates had a wonderful day. :)

So amidst the mountain of clothes and treats and literal large empty boxes with names written on the side for things to buy soon and ship directly to Texas instead of doing it ourselves (those were fun to open :P), I think I did get some haul-worthy stuff heh.

LEGO Movie and GTAV from the fiancée, books and Wolf Among Us from parents, and Xbox Live cards from future in-laws. ^_^

Overall I think I had a pretty enjoyable Christmas (and Eve). Spent a lot of time with family and ate way too much.



Pokemon Omega Ruby: Day 13

Posted by Ektris , in Video Games Dec 22 2014 · 187 views

One ball.

One turn.

One attempt.

And a Jolly Rayquaza is mine!! :D

But before I got to that wonderful event... First, that rematch against Wallace was totally him as Champion (as implied in one of the scenes at the end of Episode Delta as well). And that was cool. After that, though... what did they do to Sky Pillar?! Where was the challenge? Where were the bike puzzles? Where was anything interesting about climbing it? This redesign was horrendous.

After catching the glorious Rayquaza before he could even Mega Evolve once, I proceeded to crush Zinnia (who I've somewhat regretted calling a creep after the realization of what her tragic past is implied to be) and OHKO Deoxys. I wish I had paid more attention during all of the cutscenes during and after this, since I expected to be trying it again for a different Rayquaza. Oops...

I've since resumed my Mega Stone hunt. Hello Sharpedonite! <3 Still haven't attempted going through any of Hoopa's portals to get extra Legendaries. Not sure when I will. I'm also trying to grind to get prepared for the Elite Four rematch (I was horribly underleveled), but there are seriously no good grinding spots. Y had no wild spots, but at least there were the restaurants and chateau. Nothing here but the Elite Four. Which I'm not ready for. (And want to use my in-game team for, otherwise I do indeed have dozens and dozens of level 100 'Mons I could withdraw lol.) So It's going to take some time.

So following the post-game and a bit of grinding, here's where we're ending:

Hashirama, Sceptile Lv. 68
Glalie, Lv. 68
Sigurd, Flygon Lv. 66
Abyss, Sharpedo Lv. 66
Altair, Swellow Lv. 64
Latios, Lv. 64



Pokemon Omega Ruby: Day 12

Pokemon, Omega Ruby, Ruby
Yessss! I got an Eon Ticket! My game wasn't glitched! :D Found one while doing some holiday shopping at a mall (and oddly just got Pokémon data; no people for my Streetpass plaza disappointingly lol).

Made a little more progress through Episode Delta today. I stormed Team Magam's hideout once more, which didn't explode. Huh. A part of me really, really does still wish it did. Now I'm ready to enter Sky Pillar once I withdraw my Jolly Synchronizer.

Which I now have. Because I also transferred my living Dex and got the Shiny Charm. This also prompted me to check out my Pokedex, which I actually never did before in this game! Weird. I really should have sooner, because it's a really cool one this time.

The rest of my playtime today was spent Mega Stone hunting. What I could, anyways. A very disappointingly large amount aren't available until after Episode Delta, one of which of course I very much wish I could have already. Ah well...

So with that, I'm going to go get me a Rayquaza and save the world! Not necessarily tomorrow, but soon heh.

Hashirama, Sceptile Lv. 62
Abyss, Sharpedo Lv. 60
Sigurd, Flygon Lv. 60
Glalie, Lv. 60
Altair, Lv. 56
Latios, Lv. 56
