Crisis to the Core!

So I’ve been playing Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII, for the last days. Wow, what a game. First I want to say I’m not a FFVII fanboy like everyone else, but this game was good. And I’ve never been a fan of Cloud, but this game helped me to like him.
At least I understand his personality a bit more so I don’t have very much against him anymore. Glad you finally could learn more about Zack. I’ve always liked him.
Man he really has a hard life. I can willing admit when the game was over, I was almost crying. it really got to me. Well because I can feel like this is why I love it. Games that can make me cry (in a good way) are good games.
Since they can really bring forth my emotions, still waiting for a movie to do the same. =P
I was going to write a mini-review, but I lost my interesting in writing anything at the moment.

Nintendo DSi

So there has been a lot of rumors the past days that Nintendo would announce a new version of its DS. And now they have announce it.
Its called Nintendo DSi. The screens are bigger, there is no more GBA slot.
But instead they have added an SD cars lot. They will have a download service for it, built in browser, mp3 player. And a whole other neat stuff. Well my problem is that I was thinking about getting a DS lite, but now I think I might wait for this one instead. REally don’t know what to do… But I have no use for the GBA slot and I seem to get more that I want with the DSi. But then again, we have to wait untill 2009 to get it. The japanese release is November 1. >.<

Blade of Tears!

So I thought it was time to be a bit nice again (haha). So I thought I would share the opening theme from the game Cross Edge with you all.
The singer is Haruka Shimotsuki, she also did the opening song for
Atelier Iris 3. I really like this. And I hope you will to.

X-Edge – Blade of Tears

Two RPG demos up on JP PSN store

If you have a PS3 and are itching to try some RPG titles, head over to the Japanese PSN store and download demos o Eternal Sonata and Cross Edge.
Then give me a shout with impressions. I would appriciate that..


Disgaea 3 finished!

Last night I finished Disgaea 3! Took exactly a week after I got it. There are still some sidequests to do. But the main game is finished.
The time stopped on 40hours & 7minutes.
I probably would have finished it much sooner if I hadn’t spent so much time leveling up and training my characters. So I guess I’m going to do some of the sidequests now and probably replay it from begining one day.
Well after I’m satisfied with playing Disgaea 3 I really am going to continue with
Wild Arms 1. Since there is nothing else of importance before October 21 anyway…
(Eternal Sonata for PS3 release date) And sixs days after that its ma birthday.
25 years old… Woho!…

Devil May Cry 4, finished!

And with that tone, another Playstation 3 game was cleared. I’m not a fan of the DMC series, and I probably never will be. The character are cool but, I don’t know…
There is just something I don’t like. Can’t put my finger on it. :S
I’d much rather play the PS2 Castlevania games, I think they are much better.
OMG! Don’t blast me for saying that now folks! *puts up flame shield*

DMC4 is a good game. But I’m glad I could borrow it. I would have been dissapointed if I had bought it. Tomorrow I’m going to give Assassins Creed a try. I borrowed that game to from a friend.
So I’m hoping that will live up to my expectations, I sure hope it does. >.<
And soon Its time for Disagea 3. Yay! I’m hoping to push more playing of Wild Arms 1 in here somewhere too. I hope I get the time. If not, oh, well. There will be other chances.

I tried the Star Wars Force unleashed demo. Its was pretty fun. Throwing people around using the force. Ah, its priceless. I will probably get this game sometime in the distant future.
Well thanks for listening to my ramblings as always. You guys are the best. <3

Review: Folklore

FOLKLORE

This is one of those three games (that are out) I’ve really wanted the most on Playstation 3. The other two being Uncharted (review coming later) and Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction.

The story takes place in the village of Doolin. Ellen who thought she lost her mother 17years ago. suddenly send her a letter. Telling her  she is alive and in Doolin. She travels there but finds nothing… Until she gets a hold of the messengers cloak. With it she can travel to the  Netherworld and meet the dead. And hoping she might meet her mother or get clues about here mother there. The Netherworld is the  world the soul goes to when you die. About the same time Keats, a journalist for an occult magazine get a phone call. A woman screaming for help and that she is going to get killed by something in Doolin.
Keats being as curious as he is, he heads to Doolin. Where he by ”chance” is also receives a bit of the cloaks powers.

Both Ellen and Keats have different, rolls to play. Ellen wants to regain her lost memories, while Keats..
Well he’s just curious and loves a good story. Anything to sell a magazine…. But as always things gets more complicated and they first  turnout. You gather monsters called Folks in this game and use them to fight. You can set a Folk to any of the four buttons, Triangle, Circle, Cross or Square. As I said you use these Folks to fight. Sometimes you need a certain Folk to absorb another Folk.
You hit them until you see their soul or ID as they call in the game. When it turns red, you have to yank the controller to get the ID our of the body of the Folk.
Sometimes you need to shake the controller up and down, turn it left and right. There are a few different ways you  have to do it. But this is almost never used on Folks, just on Folklores.
the bosses of the game.

I can’t seem to remember a single piece of music from the game, so if there ever is a squel they need to fix that part. And I would have liked more voice acting. I’m actually a bit dissapointed. I know I’ve said I rally liked the game to others, but when I finished the game and got the whole impresion I realised I actually only continued to play for the story. I was expecting a bit more. Guess I had to high hopes for this game. Still worth a rent/playing once. Or if you really want but it. Its up to you. Myself I’m going to see if I can get this traded for Ratcher & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction..

TOTAL: 6/10

PLUS
+ The story is moved forward with a comic book like style. I like it.
+ The story is actually really interesting and kept me going.
+ You can collect cloaks (dresses) for Ellen. I love it when you can change clothes in games.

MINUS
– The game sadly get repetitive, and you don’t need much of a tactic to capture the Folks.
– I wish they had added voice acting too those comic book scenes.
– The music is okay. Nothing more nothing less. You won’t remember it
