So I sort of disappeared for half a month. Haven't touched my tablet, because I was preoccupied with games >__<
Mostly because I was playing through Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney (also known as PLPWaa, "pull-pwaa" as I call it lol). Finally finished it last week (I'm slow, also I was stopping at checkpoints to discuss the plot and speculations with my SO). It's a very good game, as expected. The plot and plot twists is very much in the style of a Professor Layton game, and the dialogue and characterization contains much of the humour in Phoenix Wright style (I love Maya's lines). I love how it tells you on each screen how many hint coins (and hidden puzzles) there are, so you don't have to stare at the screen for 10 mins trying to tap every nook and cranny. I love the 3D models of the characters, and the voice-acted dialogue and animated cut scenes. I felt it was a bit light on the number of puzzles though, about half as many as normal Layton games, I guess because it has to fit in the court scenes. Cross-examining multiple witnesses was an interesting experience. I noticed that even though the game lets you save pretty much any time, during cross-examination, when you load your save, you get thrown back to the beginning of the cross-examination (ie it doesn't load to the exact point at which you saved, it seems to have pre-determined points that it loads from). The music is amazing. I love the remixes of themes from both games, as well as the original themes for the game. The court music is in the same style as Phoenix Wright games, with a medieval touch to it. I think I want to get the artbook for this game (I don't think it will come out in English, so I'll just get the Japanese version) because it has lots of concept art, which I love to see. One of the extras in the game is Layton and Luke drawn in Phoenix Wright style, and Nick and Maya drawn in Professor Layton style
I would recommend the game if you like either Professor Layton or Phoenix Wright games, or even just like puzzle games in general. It doesn't really require knowledge about either universe, but it does have some references that you would appreciate if you're familiar with either side.
Also still playing through Gundam Reborn. I've cleared all the Official Modes and Ultimate Mode 'cept the last mission (it's haaarrrrddd >___< ). I only got the 00 movie DLC. I want to get all the cards, but that becomes rather grindy, because most of the cards requires using a mech 10 times and defeating like 10000 enemies with it (which I've already done with most of my favourite mechs). The game also makes me like Gym Ghingham even though I know nothing about him (I've only watched up to like ep4 of Turn A >__< will go back eventually), and it's only partially because he as the same voice as Mwu. But I love that he has custom support dialogue with Domon and with Mwu (if you have the game, try it
). The custom support between the Druggies are pretty awesome as well.
I hope I'm not all Musou-ed out when Hyrule Warriors comes out... I do look forward to having P2 use the gamepad though. Split screen, esp vertical split screen like Gundam Reborn, sucks!
Tried the Smash 4 3DS demo. I'm not very good at Smash, or fighting games in general really, but it was still kinda fun. Out of the demo characters I think I enjoy Mega Man the most. For some reason I can't control Pikachu, I always end up dashing too much and killing myself
Wish there was Kirby in the demo, he was my fave in Brawl (and the little bit of Melee that I played). Now that Japan has the game, I've been keeping away from spoilers, I want to find out for myself who the roster is, so no spoilers in the comments plz.
Sorta fallen behind on anime because of all the gaming lol. Most of the series I'm watching are concluding. I don't see Aldnoah Zero concluding with 1 ep to go though, so maybe it'll get a second season/continuation like a couple of seasons later? Seems like a lot of series are doing that these days. Looking forward to Build Fighters Try, though generally Gundam sequels tend to end up..... worse >__< I'll watch Reconguista out of curiosity but ehhh....
Went to Amiami the other day and saw this for sale:
(click for the Amiami product page if you want one too)
Aaaaahhhhhh!!!! So preordered! I love how she's holding a meat bun *__* There's apparently Rinko and China in the same line, and I'll probably get both. Oh yeah, I also caved and pre-ordered female Tieria >__<
So guess what, I bought a house!
I kinda wish they taught you in school how to do these things, because I sure didn't know how, and had to ask parents/friends etc. I'm looking forward to moving to a bigger place, because I've run out of places to put my figures and plushies
I'm not looking forward to packing all my stuff though, and setting up the shelves again >__<
