My Gaming Landscape [October 29, 2013]

My Gaming Landscape

Man did I play a lot of games this past week. 15 to be exact! I played more Pokémon X, mostly just leveling, super training and petting my Pokémon. My Bulbasaur evolved into an Ivysaur so yay. I tried to play more Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver but I’m stuck again so I didn’t get far. I popped in Injustice: Gods Among Us for some online matches and I went through the story mode with Ares. I popped in Prince of Persia HD Trilogy and played more of Sands of Time. I’m around 3/4 of the way through the game. I gave Final Fantasy XIII a try again and made some progress with doing the Cie’th Stones or whatever they’re called. I’ve completed three of them, which is better than none so that’s progress at least. Not very fun, though. Continue reading “My Gaming Landscape [October 29, 2013]”

Colorwind Reacts: The NeoGeo X and My Unnecessary Pining For It

I like to consider myself someone who is rational in their video game purchases. I tend to read reviews, download demos and trials, and / or rent games before I put down the $50-60 dollars. Similarly, I have a policy about new consoles where I wait at least a year after its initial launch date and must be interested in at least 10 exclusively released titles. I tend to be smart with my money since I don’t have much of it to spend on games or anything else for that matter. However, having said that, I really, REALLY want a NeoGeo X, a recently announced retro handheld that plays old NeoGeo titles.
