I haven't been around much lately, a couple reasons for that so I figured I should do an update.

What I've been playing.

Phantom Brave: We Meet Again

I've finally started playing this.  Like most the games in my library, I picked it up and didn't get around to playing it right away but I finally sat down and started going at it.  It's really fun, very lighthearted but also very deep.  A nice tactical RPG experience and something RPG fans and Wii owners should definitely not miss out.  If you like Disgaea games, you'll love this.


Minecraft, oh Minecraft.  So many things can be said about this game.  The one thing that needs to be said is this is easily one of the best games every created.  I've finally updated my server and started playing with some friends again and checking out the new features.  Explored abandoned mineshafts, made new portals in the hell world that took us across the world, built a huge wall around our land and made a chicken farm with a nice egg dispensing system :)  Needless to say, I love this game and have mad respect for Notch.

Dark Void Zero

I've finally beaten this game.  It's very fun and very challenging but also very short.  3 15-45 minute stages give or take on if you want completion on each level, how quick you play, and how much you die.  Still for 5 dollars, this isn't half bad.


What I've been watching.

Stargate Atlantis season 1

I've finally finished this, its a nice take on the series.  It has a bit more of a modern scifi feel but still keeps the stargate vibe and stays true to it.  Still follows the same formula that SG1 followed, especially seasons with Jack O Neil.  The actual story built up quite nicely and is going strong into season 2.


Sleep Insomnia

So... I have a bad case of this.  Which is why I haven't been doing much updates lately, to be honest I haven't been doing much of anything lately because of it.  I'm always tired and drained but when I lay down I can't fall asleep and wake up.  It's getting really frustrating, only got maybe a hour of sleep last night and I'm exhausted now.  It's also really messing up my sleep schedule.  I fall asleep at different times all throughout the day and haven't been getting much done because of it.  Gonna start forcing myself to stay up during the day and hopefully I'll be able to fall asleep at night again.

September Updates and News

-note, this blog was made 4 or 5 days ago on another site like most my other blogs and I just never got around to bringing it over till now.

Haven't updated in a while, not a lot to talk about however there is some new stuff that I've been playing, some new stuff I've been watching, and more importantly a crap ton of gaming news.

What I've Been Watching

Stargate SG1 season 10

I finally finished the series.  Enjoyed it a lot, much more then I thought I would.  Season 10 was no exception though it left me with a lot of questions about the story and the future series's of Stargate which I will be watching.

Stargate Atlantis


Seeing as I finished SG1 I decided to jump right into Atlantis which is actually pretty good.  The first episode was a nice introduction to the new characters and a good transition from the SG1 series familiars to the new faces we'll be seeing all throughout Atlantis.  Only on the 5th episode and I'm liking it so far though I'll touch more on it another time when I've seen more episodes.

What I've Been Playing


After completing the Metroid series I've been thinking about a lot of the games I need to beat and series's I need to go through to prep me for some of the games I'll be getting in the future however while I know I need to go through some of these other series's I figured I'd just go ahead and actually have fun with one of the many other titles in my library that I haven't really played.  So I give you Opoona, a very different style kind of happy go lucky JRPG.  It's appearance looks very childish but its gameplay is actually pretty deep and there's a lot more to do in the world then your standard JRPG which actually makes for a enjoyable experience.  Just don't expect an epic story cause so far, that is absent.

Dark Void Zero

Much better then the 360/PS3 version imo, this one is very Castlevania and despite it being short is extremely fun.  One of the funner DSiWare games out there and I highly recommend it.  The rocket pack makes gameplay fun.

Nintendo News and TGS

So much has been happening lately.  A crap ton of news has been coming from the Nintendo camp from this very awkward analog attachment to all sorts of game announcements.

I understand the desire for a second analog but this really isn't appealing.

Needless to say during the 3DS conference there was a ton of info talked about, too bad I didn't understand none of it however GoNintendo took a lot of the info and dissected it to help us understand.  A new update is on the way which is good, not really sure what all it will entail however I hear we'll be getting demo's which is needed.  Mario Kart also shown off some interesting features some of which looked like inviting friends to games.  Also while not a ton of games were announced some pretty big ones were such as Fire Emblem, a new Culdcept, Bravely Default (a new SquareEnix RPG), and a little known game called....

                                                  Super Stoked!

Furthermore a lot is being shown off for Vita, 3DS, and 360/PS3 which is always nice.  Vita also is showing off a lot of features and some really strong remakes like FFX HD.  With the Vita dropping this year in Japan, it's going to be really interesting to see how the 2 systems fair.  Just hopefully Vita makes its way to NA sooner then later.
