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.
