Plans for the next month (gaming wise)

This past Sunday, I finally completed Magnacarta 2 (which to me, is the easiest JRPG I've ever played, check my review about the game), with nothing new to play I have decided that I will do another Tales of Vesperia playthrough (farming grade for that at the moment), try to get the remaining seven achievements for Borderlands (even if it's a bore-fest to me now), and get all the crew and online ranked match achievements for NBA 2K11.

This may seem like a small list of games to play in the next month, but as you know, Catherine is coming out next month and well....I decided to get the deluxe edition, so I'm going to finish paying that off before I decide to get anything else, and plus there really isn't anything I haven't played yet that interests me in anyway, so yeah

Nintendo-wise, I picked up The Legend of Zelda:Twilight Princess so I might jump onto that after my Tales of Vesperia playthrough, so yep that's all folks

Games I'm working on this month:
Tales of Vesperia
NBA 2K11

Video Updates

I've decided that I'm going to start doing video game videos on the popular website on the world wide web known as YouTube, while still writing this blog. I think this will be a good decision as with the videos, I can talk about my views on a game, or show you guys what games I recently got.

Magnacarta 2 Review

Magnacarta 2 Review

Ahh, Magnacarta 2, while you don't expand my mind on the JRPG formula, you provide a excellent experience on the Xbox 360 that I think every RPG fan should experience.

 The story remineded me of The Last Remnant, it basically involves politics, romance, and adventure. While this concept has been used many times, it's still a pretty good story with some twist-points through out

The gameplay here reminds me of Rogue Galaxy, it plays out like Final Fantasy XII, but it is more action than   strategy (like the Tales series). The battle system never bored me and I enjoyed it the whole time I was playing. The fact that this game plays out like a MMORPG, where you receive side-quests and such makes it even better

While the graphics aren't the best I've seen, I enjoyed them as they stood and....well graphics don't really make a game, right? The sound in this game is also good, while it's not the best soundtrack out there, you won't get annoyed or sick with the music, and the voice acting is actually good in this game compared to other RPGs (looking at you Star Ocean). The only problem I had with the sound though is when you are in battle and your teammates say quotes and repeat themselves over and over.

Overall, this isn't the JRPG that will change what people think of JRPGs, but it's a enjoyable one and to me, one of the best on the Xbox 360

I'm done with......

Screw it, it's such a grind fest and I don't have the time for that at the moment. I'll just happily just start playing Magnacarta 2 with the Bonus Pack

I have a Terraria addiction...

This game has been taking up a lot of my time right now

Terraria is a mix of Minecraft with NES Zelda, it's just such a relaxing game as it has no objectives at all and I just enjoy exploring the world the game throws you in

Busy, busy, busy....

The last few days have been busy for me, I've been finishing up school for the year, looking for a part-time job over the summer, and been playing Star Ocean quite a bit. Star Ocean has been an enjoyable game, the achievements might be hard and time consuming, but for now, I'm just enjoying the game and actually haven't been worrying about the achievements (I'm at 90/1000GS at the moment, just in case you were wondering). Last time I played (which was Sunday), I had just arrived on the planet Roak and I managed to get to the town on the planet, but found an inn and saved. I will have the time to play it today and I hope I'm able to get to the boss battle by tonight.

I went shopping Friday and I went by GameStop and picked up Magna Carta 2 (which I heard is a pretty good JRPG for the 360) and I FINALLY was able to find a copy of Dark Cloud for the PS2 for the low price of $6. =}

Well, I slept in for a little today, but need to go get ready for school, as I have a exam today. Until next time guys....

Star Ocean + MLB 2K10 = Pretty fun day

I finally got a chance to get back into Star Ocean, great game overall, just horrible English dubs. Went and picked up MLB 2K10 yesterday, and I've been having a blast playing it, the My Player mode is actually pretty deep and it's a lot easier than NBA 2K11's My Player mode.
