Lately there's a lot about video games that I want to talk about. Sadly, there aren't really anyone who are willing to listen and discuss about video games. Some of those rare person are Rayza, Adam, and Irshaad. Rayza is the one who listens to me the most. Thanks Rayza :) Also, special thanks to Raihan for always asking me about the games that I played. I appreciate it A LOT :D
I guess it is natural for parents in my culture to think that playing video games is just a waste of time. But never mind them, thinking about it only sadden me more. Even though my parents never even care about the me and games, they always willing to buy games for me. I guess I am truly lucky to have a very considerate parents :)
There are a lot of things to talk about here. Let me sort out my mind first. Firstly, I want to talk about new releases. This month, there will be a lot of interesting titles that will be coming out. Even last month has a couple of my favorite titles. There are two games that were out for last month that I bought; Miles Edgeworth: Ace Attorney Investigations and also Heavy Rain (I bought it this month). Both game are about crimes and investigations, but each game has different focus, which I will discuss in other post. So far, I have completed Ace Attorney, and I am on my way to get all trophies for Heavy Rain.
These are the games that caught my interest:
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Short comments: After watching two reviews for the game, I become more and more interested to the game. Of course, this game will be compared to Modern Warfare 2, and I think I just want to give it a try. One of the most intriguing part is where you can blow up the environment freely, even big building, towers, trees and more.
Final Fantasy XIII
I must say that it will be stupid for me to not getting this game. If you just wondered "Why?", then you have a looooong way before you will become an avid gamer.
Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition
Despite what the critics had said about this game is being decent compared to the prequel, I still love this game. Resident Evil 4 is one of the first shooting games that I played, so I am truly having a blast playing the sequel. In the Gold Edition, there will be a lot of extras that fans of Resident Evil shouldn't miss.
Resonance of Fate
Some of the video that I watched in Gamespot made me become interested in this game. Maybe I'll try this game in summer holiday~ This game is an RPG, and I don't think there's enough reason to overlook it.
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey
Playing Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor has proved to me enough that DS can handle a great RPG. It's nice to have a great RPG on portable system. I had keen attachment to Shin Megami Tensei series~
There is also Pokemon SoulSilver/HeartGold that will be coming the same day as Final Fantasy XIII, but I don't feel like buying it. I'm never really that interested in Pokemon, but I never missed all the series :p God of War 3 is also coming, but someone else will buy that game for me :D
Role-playing game has been my favorite genre, after I had played Final Fantasy IX on PSone for the first time (though it was not the first rpg). After that, I grown attached to Final Fantasy series and games developed by Square Enix (Squaresoft at that time). I also tried other RPG like Wild Arms 3, Dark Cloud 2 and Dragon Quest VIII, but I never even cared to finish them. In 2007, I opened myself to Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3. It was the first RPG that I enjoyed besides Final Fantasy. Until now, I totally love Shin Megami Tensei Series. But it is unfortunate for the latest generation consoles that they are lacking RPGs. It's a total bummer, but this year makes a good promise for RPG gamers like me :)
Lately, I think I have developed interest in shooting genre. Third person shooter games, I never thought I will be playing first person shooter. Now, I am positive that I will be playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 anytime soon :D The first shooting game that I played was Metal Gear Solid, but with Gameshark codes~but I started to play without cheats after that, slowly.
Fast-paced action game like Devil May Cry is my favorite. I even prefer Devil May Cry for over Bayonetta. I don't know how to explain it explicitly. There is just something missing in Bayonetta. Though the combo is just many and insane, I prefer Devil May Cry's style which has less combo but they are variety. Devil May Cry 3 is still my favorite~
I also love party games like Guitar Hero, Rock Band and Singstar. For Guitar Hero and Rock Band, I am more interested in hitting every notes because it tests and improves my visual attention and selective attention, and also reflexes~ But I also enjoy playing them with my friends. Singstar has variety of songs, that my friends and I really love to sing during weekend especially.
For other genre of games, there aren't any particular one that I want to talk right now. But you can say that I love almost all different genres except sports. Not that I hate it, I just don't like playing them fully. I only enjoyed them with friends~
I guess that's all I want to say about. Sure take a long time to write all this~
