New Loot! (#4)

Yet again, I bought games without really planning to, and certainly with no need to—I have several games at the moment that I have yet to complete.

The difference this time, though, is WHERE I got the games. I went to a semi-local used games store, Game On. I'd never been there before, but my hubby told me I should check it out. It's a neat little store with tons of games for every gaming platform ever devised. I was quite impressed. Then I found two games from my wishlist and I was thrilled!

***Infinite Undiscovery***

Published by Square Enix
Developed by tri-Ace
Released 2008
*Rated T for Teen*

Honestly, I don't remember why I put this on my wishlist, other than the fact that it's published by Squeenix. I'm a bit of a Squeenix fan, thus the reason I'll buy a FF game that kinda sucks.

This game is a little different. It's the RPG style, but without the turn-based battles. In fact, it doesn't even have the RPG aspect, not that I've managed to figure out anyway. So...yeah. I wanted it 'cause it's Squeenix and nothing more. lol 

Where to buy? 

***N3II: Ninety-Nine Nights***

Published by Konami
Developed by feelplus
Released 2010
*Rated M for Mature 17+*

This is one of those games where the demo leaves you wondering, "Do I really want it?" I figured, yeah, what the heck. There's a part of me that really enjoys the hack n slash style of gaming and this game really fits the bill. Even better, it has that interesting RPG (character building) aspect to it. (Yes, I've already plugged it in and tried it out. I'm a hardened gamer after all.) ;)

A few blog changes...

I haven't had this blog long and I already see where I can make improvements. Not unusual, actually, even when I don't have a readership yet. 

Main thing I'm looking at now, my blog is weighted far too much in Amazon's direction.  Not really surprising when I'm an affiliate there. However, I would like this blog to be of benefit to everyone, regardless of which online store they frequent.

I'm also very much Xbox happy. Also not surprising, considering I play most games on Xbox 360. However, I'd like PlayStation and PC users to find some benefit from this blog as well. And while, at this point, I have little to no experience with PS or PC versions of games, I can at least link to places that have some of that info.

To that end, each review and all future posts will include a variety of purchase links when possible (Amazon, Gamestop, Walmart, Best Buy, Xbox Live Marketplace, and PlayStation Store), as well as Xbox, PlayStation, and PC versions. I'll try to keep it succinct to avoid deluging you lovely readers with nothing but link after link after link. I know how annoying that can be. ;)

Until next time...

New Loot! (#3)

I guess I lied when I said I rarely get new games. [shrug] Here's my latest score.

***Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition***

I've heard good (and bad) things about the Witcher series, but the bottom line: It's supposed to be one of the better storylines in gaming. That sold me. I'll try to overlook anything I find objectionable, and hopefully there isn't so much that I have a hard time enjoying the story and gameplay. We'll see.

Another selling point for me is that this game includes the complete soundtrack. I'm really getting into collecting game soundtracks lately and I hope this is one I like.

***Devil May Cry 4 Original Soundtrack***

Speaking of OSTs, the other thing in this box of loot is the complete soundtrack for Devil May Cry 4. Yes, I said I would get it and I was done waiting (worst week of my life! lol). It set me back $20 but for 100+ songs on three discs, I'd say that's fair. I've liked the music since my first playthrough, so it makes sense to add this to my collection.

I shouldn't be adding any new loot for a while. I mean, I have bills to pay and two children to feed. My royalties don't allow for most of my money to be spent on my gaming habit. I wish. lol ;)

On the Horizon (#3)

Yet another post where I dream about the games to come...

***Final Fantasy XV***

Published by Square Enix
Developed by Square Enix
Coming 2015 (December) 
*Rating Pending*
(Most likely T for Teen.)

I've been a fan of Final Fantasy since the original game on the NES. My love for JRPGs has a lot to do with that game, as well as Dragon Warrior (also NES).

I loved VII and found VIII to be quite enjoyable. Then I got XIII and despite my disappointment with that one, I bought XIII-2. That was better. I have Lightning's Return on my wishlist (I'll get it once the price drops a little more), but it's XV that I'm really looking forward too.

I know this one's a ways off from release. I'm waiting a bit impatiently for it, but I think Lightning's Return will [mostly] tide me over until then—once I actually have that game. lol

Because it's so far from release, there's not a lot of info on it yet. I did find one site that has a fair amount of info, pics, and vidz all related to FFXV: FF15 Home.

Edited 9/19/2014 to add another link with info on this upcoming game: gamesradar.
