Theatrhythm and I have a deep, and painful, relationship. I spend many loving hours in it and am rewarded with burning aches, and suffering, in my fingers. It's well worth it, though... at least in my opinion. It's sort of sick when you think about it... mixing a rhythm game with final fantasy, and then adding the music in to it. It's like the most addicting drug ever. I always put in about an hour or so a week of this, but sometimes I go through huge fits of hours at a time, for days at a time, and end up with crippled hands clutching my stylus. How I love it.
I finally beat Saint's Row 3, and it was great. I finished it with both endings, and decided the 'Saving' one was the best... the other one just didn't really make much sense, even in the over the top world of my character. Now I will tackle the DLC. I did one of them (the TAG one), and it was pretty amusing, though the rewards were just more Homies, and I don't really use them often... and when I do, it's Nyteblade.
Final Fantasy 14 ARR really aggravated the hell out of me for about a week, and I didn't touch it. Then our free company leader decided to leave, unannounced, and disband the guild, and all our hard work, like a douchebag. A little disheartening, but ok. A new free company was crafted, and I'm getting back into it. Only a few more levels until Bard is unlocked, and then it will be glory, and joy.
Diablo III is the same as ever, but so much smoother. I don't have a lot to report on this or Dark Souls. Progression is normal, and steady, as it always is in these two games. Farcry 3 was one of two free games on PSN+ this week, and I was very pleased to grab this. I've played the other two, and enjoyed them, and so was anxious to play this one. So far, I'm really enjoying it. I've just found Daisy and have taken a detour trip to Trip Out Mushroom City... which was interesting, to say the least. I'll be hopping back into that game when I'm done recording this blog.
The other free game on PSN+ was Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisn; a supposed reimagining + expansion to the original ( which I heard was atrocious ). I played the original games demo ages ago and was reviled by it in almost every way, but, having heard glorious things in regards to this new one, I decided to give it a try; it IS free. I've done a few sidequests, and have progressed a little in the main storyline, but managing two sandboxish games at once is a little overwhelming, much like trying to say 'sandboxish' three times fast, so I'm putting it to the side until I sink my teeth into Farcry 3 some more.
There's not much else going on. I'm doing some YouTube videos of Maken Shao: Demon Sword, and Silent Hill: Homecoming, and those are going well. You can find them on the YouTube page linked here or, if you're listening to this blog speak, on the same channel. One thing I want to say, in regards to Mako Shao... if you played Maken X for the Dreamcast, Maken Shao is the revision of it on the PS2. It's in 3rd person and is smoothed out, and a lot better to control ( for a game of the time ). It feels very much like a Shin Megami Tensei game, although it is not. The same musical composer, art director, and company have created it, and so I felt as though I were playing some beautiful sci fi combination of Lucifer's Call and Digital Devil Saga. It's on the PSN in the EU ( I'm not sure about other regions ) so grab it up if you can.
