It is the strangest thing having a video game fandom again.
Assassin's-freaking-Creed. This trailer inspired me to pick up the first game, which we happened to have lying around.
I just started playing because my bro keeps playing his moe games (Neptunia) on his PS3--not my thing--and I was still craving some kind of DRAMATIC game. And at last, I can finally say I play western games. *__*
Really, honestly, I am not fit for this game. I have no taste nor tolerance for suspense. And yet. AND YET. 8V I LIKE IT.
Although I turned off the blood. I am no less a pansy from this experience, so, no this is not a growing up thing.
Pickpocketing is the hardest thing. I've missed jumping around and running about like in Ape Escape, and Assassin's Creed--dare I say it--does it better! Minus fancy kiddy gadgets and the like. And it's also scarier in Assassin's Creed. I'd stick around and ogle at the backgrounds except there're usually guards on my tail because I am a pro at inadvertently attracting their attention. |D So, yeah.
I've been dabbling in Odin Sphere, too, because I still need the bad endings, but, oof, grinding. x_x; Speaking of Odin Sphere, have you SEEN THE NEW VANILLAWARE GAME? HOLY CRAP THOSE BOOBS
. Just...just go to the character page and look at them. You'll know instantly who I'm talking about. >_>; http://dragons-crown.com/na/
Your back! Your poor poor back. ;___; I-It hurts to look. ...If I were to play this game, I'd probably use her, too, since I usually find myself acting as support... XDD; I'll admit, it's nice to see a more western flair to the designs (feels Dungeons and Dragons-y--which I only dabbled in in high school so idk), but, goodness gracious me--OWWWW. At least she has dem thighs to help her stand.
But I worry Vanillaware's scrapping plot in favor of gameplay like they did with Muramasa. Their new games (Dragon's Crown
and Grand Knights History
) seem to gravitate towards having a cast of generic characters, and I'd imagine it'd be difficult to develop much story with them. At least I still have my Odin Sphere for fun Vanillaware plot. )': Maybe I'll try GrimGrimoire...? NOT THAT I'VE EVER PLAYED AN RTS BEFORE.http://www.drawnandquarterly.com/moomin/index.php?id=1&
Moomin comics to make my last post seem less random. D: I quite like it so far!
