I’ve reached a point in Fire Emblem where, and I regret saying this, it just isn’t fun anymore. I’ve played close to 100 hours in it, done several of the side quests and a lot of random fights that spawn around the world, so I won’t say I regret purchasing it, but it certainly wasn’t what I was hoping for when I heard all the good things about it…
After seeing many, many recommendations for this title from journalists I respect a great deal for… I had to dig out my 3DS and give it a try. Now, I’ve never played a Fire Emblem game, so after sinking several hours into it… I’m ready to give you my initial impressions here.
I was getting a craving for Monster Hunter, but I didn’t want to hook up my Wii or pull out my old PSP… I wanted to get the feel of slaying creatures in a world like that. The feel of handcrafting your own tools of the trade… so what was I to do? Well, XSeed and Game Arts offered me an answer that even lets me get some more use out of my shiny new toy: Ragnarok Odyssey.
So as anyone who knows me well is aware, I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time with Persona 4 Golden lately. Atlus’s PS2 success Persona 4 was remade for the PS Vita including new content, cinematics, characters, and endings. The Vita doesn’t have a lot right now, but with an incredible amount of content, Persona 4 Golden makes a case that it might be worth having a Vita just for this game alone. How good a case? Well, that’s the real question.
A Year To Remember
Where it all begins….
Persona 4 The Golden’s events take place over the course of about a year. The main character is staying with his uncle and cousin at their house in the small fictional Japanese town of Inaba while his parents are abroad for work. The day before you travel to Inaba, you have a strange dream where you are in a blue limo and are speaking to a tarot reader(with an enormous nose) who talks about tragedy in your future, and tells you that this year will mark a major change in your life.
Finally I’ve managed to get my hands on a Vita at Christmas, and have now spent enough time with it to provide my opinion. I’ve been playing around with a few of the smaller titles as well as Gravity Rush and Persona 4 Golden. It’s time to give my opinion on the platform as a whole.
