From one metroidvania to another! Guacamelee didn’t really catch my
attention for the longest time, but I still decided to pick it up when it came out, just to have something to play on my Vita even if for just a few hours.
This is gonna be fast, read on!

I recently put up a post about my impressions of the game’s demo, which didn’t impress me. I still ended up picking up the game, used, for cheaper than usual used prices, happily not giving Konami any of my money.
But I did come out of the experience at least enjoying it a bit, which is more than I was expecting after playing the demo.
Read on and see what I liked, or not!

I’ve spewed my hate on this terrible game a few times before, and gave my insanely negative impressions of the terrible demo, and now I’m doing it again!… I actually played through most of the game (I have 2 missions left), so now I can give a more legit opinion.

I took a while to review this one because… well I wanted to play it to the end and it’s a long RPG, with me not having that much time to play games, and playing other things as well (including other RPGs…), thus I couldn’t really write a review in a timely manner. So here’s my review, finally!
Let’s just go right at it!

Well I got this game for free (through the “Never Settle Reloaded” promotion by AMD) and I figured I’d play it once for maybe an hour and never touch it again, because every preview I’ve seen has been pretty… meh. I mean, whatever, it’s free, I might as well check it out.
So I was pretty surprised when I ended up not only not hating the game, but actually liking it and playing it through to the end… Which is weird.

Sometimes I like buying completely random games, or games I have no idea what they’re about just to basically see what all this hype is about. This is what I did here. I know nothing about vocaloids nor have I ever even heard any vocaloid music, and obviously I’m never played one of these games before… So this was really a completely blind buy.
So yeah… let’s check it out!

Well, let’s compensate with my lack of recent posting with a quick review of a newly-released game!
I’m actually not a big Metal Gear fan. I played through MGS1 and most of MGS4, and that’s about it. But this one is really interesting to me because I love these high-impact badass action games in the style of DMC, and what’s cooler than playing one of those as a badass cyborg ninja? And that fact that this was made by Platinum Games… okay, you’ve got my attention.
So… let’s talk about this game now that I already finished it twice!

Capcom keeps being stupid, no surprise here. Here’s another one to add to their mountain of bad decisions in recent year! Not as bad as completely ruining the Devil May Cry series, but still. This time they announced that E.X. Troopers wouldn’t be localized to America (for no reason). After hearing that news, I went and tried the demo, which is available on the Japanese PSN, and I ordered the import. And, after playing it for a while, I don’t really understand why they decided that we wouldn’t get it… besides them just… being really dumb.
Either way, here’s my impressions of the game!
Keep in mind, I don’t know a very usable amount of Japanese (I can read katakana and hiragana, but I don’t know enough words to get most of what’s written… start throwing in kanji and I’m completely lost). So it’s very possible I missed some elements of the game.
Also note that this is for the PS3 version, I have no idea if the 3DS version is any different.

I actually hadn’t heard of Adventure Time at all until the 3DS/DS game was announced, but have since watched the whole series and will say that I do enjoy it, though the weirdness of it either died down as it went on, or I got used to its style. It is a fun show though, with fun characters, good comedy and a cool world.
Either way, this game looked kinda interesting, so I picked up the special edition that comes in the Enchiridion steelcase. Turns out the idiot at the EBgames gave me the DS version instead of the 3DS version (and I didn’t notice it until I got home), but whatever, it’s the same game.
Anyways, let’s jump into Adventure Time and see if it translated well into game form!

I’ve been slow on my few Wii U launch reviews because… Persona 4 the Golden… But here’s the next one on my list: New Super Mario Bros U. I know I’ve been harsh with the sub-series after playing 2 this summer, and for what I believe is good reason. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy this sub-series, but it does have some problems.
So does NSMBU do enough to be different from the rest, or is it another rehash? Read on and see!
