In Which the pile does not reduce in size

19 November, 2009 (17:03) | Gaming | By: Brian

Recently I finished a Japanese role-playing game for the DS called “The World Ends With You.” It was very interesting and quirky. I highly enjoined the game’s battle system which was fast-paced and used the stylus well. The story convoluted and bizarre, but got better toward the end. The collecting/upgrading/pokemon aspect of it was well done and fun to manage. I’m back to ChronoTrigger DS on that device now.

Unfortunately, since I last finished a game I have purchased quite a few new ones, including:

  • Gyromancer (XBLA)
  • Brutal Legend (XBOX 360)
  • NHL 10 (XBOX 360)
  • Assassin’s Creed (PC – D2D)
  • Titan Quest (PC – D2D)
  • Torchlight (PC – Steam)
  • Crate Expectations (XBL Indie)
  • Puzzle Quest: Galactrix (XBLA)
  • Phantasy Star 2 on (XBLA)
  • Oblivion (XBox 360, borrowed from Joe)
  • Plants vs. Zombies (PC)

Most of these titles I bought for $5 – $18 on good sales, so I don’t feel bad about the money. It’s not like they go bad if they sit on my PC. It’s just finding the time to play them, plus the earlier post’s backlog, that is a bit frustrating. I’ve got books and movies queued up, too. Plus real work to do! Eeesh.

Here’s a good introduction to Gyromancer.
