Here’s a list and brief look into what I’m currently playing:

1. Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor

Atsuro, MC, & Midori

I love love love this game! I love how the battle system is a prefect mix of SRPG and RPG. It combines the best of both worlds. I also adore the demon fusing. It’s very addicting trying to see what new demons you may end up getting through fusion. Fusion taps right into my gotta catch em all pokemon obsession, although I’m not too focused about getting all the demons, more about seeing them all. XD

Story is pretty interesting. Although, the gameplay and character interactions are what really keeps me playing. I must say, Midori is my favourite character at the moment. She’s cute, funny, and strong. I love how she thinks she’s a magical girl saving the earth~

Also love the role playing that is peppered throughout the game. Some of the responses are pretty funny (like telling other characters that so-and-so is your girlfriend). The game is also pretty challenging. I had to really try during the third day’s fight with Beldr. Overall I am really enjoying my time with Devil Survivor, and I’m wondering which ending I’ll end up getting. =D

edit: When for Atsuro’s ending. I haven’t gotten any other endings yet.

2. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky


Me. If I were a pokemon. Or so the game tells me. :P

I picked this up because I love pokemon and Amazon had a killer price on it (24.99 CAN as opposed to the regular 39.99 CAN). I also wanted to try an easy rogue-like. First off, this game is adorable~ It’s so charmingly cute that I can’t help but feel all warm and fuzzy inside playing this game. Second, for a pokemon game, it’s got a pretty interesting story. I was thinking that because it’s a spin-off, the game would not have a great story, but surprisingly the story is pretty good.

Also this game is perfect for collecting fanatics like me. You have the opportunity to recruit all 492 pokemon (correct me if I am wrong). There is something insanely addicting in trying to collect all the monsters. The game can get a little challenging, like when you run into monster houses, but usually a bit of leveling or the right items will be enough to work your way through. I like that the game isn’t too easy (of course for a rogue-like it is easy). In the end, I am very satisfied with it and I look forward to the rest of the game.

-interesting tidbit: I got cast as a Totodile. I never much liked the pokemon, but now I’m warming up to it and I plan on making my starter for SoulSilver a totodile now. xD Picked Charmander as my partner because I love the Char-family.

3. Wario Land III

I never got around to finishing this, so now I am trying to do that. While I was really close to the end, my game file was wiped clean (no idea why) and I had to start over. Strangely enough, the game still saves and I’ve almost made it back to where I was before the save file got erased. I’m really enjoying it. I love the blend of platforming and puzzle solving. I wish I could get the other Wario games that I missed out on. Plus Wario is just too lovable~ hehe.

4.Golden Sun: The Lost Age


Doing a complete run of The Lost Age for my backloggery buddy Phoenix’s marathon and also because Golden Sun DS is being released this year!!!!!!! I’m currently at Gaia Rock and almost done with this part. All I need to do is go to the Mikage dragon and fight it. The game is just as fun as I remember it to be & the music is awesome, but I’m amazed at how much I forgot with regards to the puzzles. ^^;;; But that is ok, it makes the game more challenging.

5. Shining Force


I made it to the second last battle, but I’m really taking my time with it. Part of the reason is that I am attempting to level all my units to 20, but the other reason is that I’ve been busy playing the games listed above. ^^;;; Anyway I hope to finish it soon (yeah right) ^^;;;

Mini Updates:

  • I’m on scene 44 of Knights in the Nightmare.
  • I’m on the last level of Super Mario Advance, but I can’t seem to beat Wart. :/ (currently on hold)
  • I finished all the Challenges for Professor Layton and the Curious Village. I am now currently working on the Wi-Fi puzzle. Week 12 Puzzle has me stumped. (currently on hold)
