Weekly Gaming Update #8 – My DS Collection is Complete!

This has nothing to do with my backlog, but I got the final DS game that I wanted in the mail today.  With Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow adorning my DS shelves, my collection is officially complete!  On top of that, I’ve already beaten Dawn of Sorrow in the past, so it doesn’t count towards anything in my backlog (and I won’t count it as a new game here, either).

Alright, let’s get to it.

New Games Started:

Atelier Sophie: Alchemist of the Mysterious Book – In Progress
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze – In Progress

Games Beaten:

If My Heart Had Wings
Overall, I’m a bit mixed on this one.  I thought the overall story was good, and the length decent (though maybe it dragged just a little bit at times)… but it’s clear that the plot revolves around the main heroine, and as a result, I’m not sure why the other character paths are even there.   I can’t imagine the story being compelling at all if it was about any of the other four girls I could date, and the story seems to agree as three out of the other four are locked until you complete Kotori’s path.  Maybe I’ll go back and see, I’m always a sucker for trying to complete VNs… it’s just so easy to!  I was the translation didn’t drop off at the end, though…

In Progress:

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward
Still dressing people up, selling tickets, and so on.  Trying to find colors, too, but I keep forgetting to boot it up at night and visit places.

Atelier Sophie: Alchemist of the Mysterious Book
I’ve only played about an hour.  I know GUST aren’t exactly graphical masters, but man, this game could easily run on a PS3.  Also my friends are telling me that this entry may not be all that great… we’ll see, I guess, but I’m not too pumped.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
My boyfriend and I are co-oping this together.  It’s a challenging game and we both suck at it.  We’re in the second world and already got three game overs!  It’s going to be a long trek…

Goals for Next Week:

  • Focus on Style Savvy a little more.  Maybe even beat it!
  • Maybe figure out what, if anything, I still need to buy to complete my PS3, 3DS, and Wii collections.

That about does it this week!
