What I’ve been playing – Level 3

Since February I played mostly games on my Switch…

  • Oxenfree. It’s a short 5 hour point and click adventure, highly recommend it. The story was amazing, don’t go looking for spoilers! If you haven’t played it, go and play it now.

  • I started playing Ocarina of Time (again, didn’t finish) . Maybe I’ll try again later in the year.

  • Almost finished Mario+Rabbids. Need to go back and finish that off at some point.

  • Play a little bit of N++ every day. There’s 4000 levels, it’s gonna take a while. 4 hours, 0.048% complete, 1029 deaths… yeah the tweet has a typo. oh well! I quite like how bite sized it is.

  • Played quite a lot of Powgi Wordsearch with Milly. This is a surprisingly fun co-op game. Who knew how angry you get when someone finds the word you’ve set your heart on finding….

  • Played a bit of Rocket League but didn’t get into it fully. Maybe with the next update.

  • Tried to get into Pokemon Ultra Moon. Shit, that’s a slow game. Let’s hope that the new Switch pokemon games aren’t this slow. I think I got to the second island before becoming bored out of my mind.

I am currently deep into Disgaea 5. I think I’m a healthy way into the story, but I keep distracting myself with the Item World. It’s pretty much one of my favourite games ever. Between that, and N++ I’ve not been playing much else.

My Hitlist for the next few months. Pretty heavily 3DS biased, because it’s gathering dust and I have a ton of 3DS stuff I’ve not got to yet! Expect the next gaming update in September.

  • Dragon Quest Builders (NS)
  • Retro City Rampage (NS)
  • Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy (3DS)
  • Zelda Picross (3DS)
  • Pullblox (3DS)
  • Mario Tennis Open (3DS)
  • Luigi’s Mansion 2 (3DS)

Too many games, not enough time

It’s been a while since I posted anything on my blogs.

I spent Christmas in South Wales, passed my January exams, and completed some games.

Super Mario 3D World was completed with the help of my girlfriend (We’ve not started the bonus challenge levels yet.), I got around to finishing Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies at last. Pretty good, but I should probably skip novel-like games in the future. I also completed Dragon Quest IV on the DS which had been nearly completed for months. That was a lot of fun, the last battle was phenomenally difficult.

Anyway, it’s back to studying for May exams (last ones ever!) and playing of more games in the between hours of uni/work/uni/work.

I bought Monster Hunter 4 this week so I could experience the online whilst it was still new. I’m also slowly playing through Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Fallout: New Vegas. Time is precious! Oh, I got an ambassador New 3DS too which I’ve been meaning to review at some point!

Three years of 3DS!

Nintendo 3DS

3ds The 3DS is three this year, now if you’re in Japan and next month everywhere else. Inspired by a post on Reddit, I thought I would take a look back at my 3DS’s Activity Log (which is something every gaming system ought to have!) Here we go:

2011

I bought my system just before the price drop so I got the Ambassador games. Still, it was a pretty bleak year for the 3DS. I was still playing DS games on the DSi XL I had at the time though, so that stats are probably a bit lower than they ought to be.

Total Playtime: 30:58

Total Steps: 60318

Average / Title: 51 minutes

Mario Kart 7: 5:15

Ocarina of Time: 3:13

eShop: 3:03

2012

I completed a load of Professor Layton games this year, as well as both Generation V Pokemon games. Apparently I didn’t play much else, or what I did play for long with that poor average per game. I played some Mario games and realised I’m crap at platformers so I never got around to completing them, and various eShop titles. This was also the year that I took my 3DS to college every day as seen by the massive increase in steps throughout the year!

2013

Aha, finally! Games are coming! I went from playing3 hours a week to over 7! This year mainly saw Animal Crossing (which was the main reason I bought a 3DS in the first place, I knew AC would arrive eventually!) and of course Pokémon Gen 6.

2014

So far this year, I’ve just played Pokémon and Animal Crossing. Hmm. I have so many other great titles to play: MH3, Link Between Worlds, the various Level 5 Guild games from the eShop, Phoenix Wright (that I only bought as it was on sale) among many many others. I wonder what I’ll get around to completing this year!
