Fire Emblem: Fates

I reserved this game months in advance for my old original 3DS I got in 2011. This is a reblog so feel free to check out the original post. Enjoy! 🙂

Two kingdoms are on the brink of war. Whose side will you choose? Torn between two families, you’re an heir of Hoshido, raised by Nohrian royals. If you walk the path of Birthright, you’ll battle the corrupted king of Nohr beside a family of strangers. If you walk the path of Conquest, you must fight to change your misguided kingdom from within. Command them expertly and forge deep relationships to master this turn-based strategy game.

Passing Time

Hello to my adventurous fallen angels! I have been suffering with writer’s block today. So I scavenged the world of WordPress until I came across a post about one of my favorite games of all time, Chrono Trigger. I hope you enjoy this re-blogged post like I did. Have a wonderful day! Over and out!

In 1995 when Chrono Trigger came out, I would have just turned 12. I stayed up through the Summer nights of Sacramento, playing until 5 in the morning on the cracked naugahyde couch in my dad’s living room. 20 years ago I became unstuck in time, and I’ve never really fit into place again since. I left some piece of myself in that game; it left some piece of itself in me. Same thing.

A week ago I watched someone play through Chrono Trigger as part of the Summer Games Done Quick charity speedrunning marathon, and it brought that little piece of myself back to me, and I still don’t quite know what to make of it. It’s still the most beautiful game I’ve played in so many ways, but so much time has passed since those Summer nights. I don’t really replay the game because I get bogged down…

X-Men Legends: A Random Review

image

X-Men Legends is an action role-playing video game developed by Raven Software and published by Activision. It was released on the GameCube, PlayStation 2 and Xbox consoles in the fall of 2004. It follows Alison Crestmere, a young mutant who has the ability to summon and control volcanic activity. As Alison is taught to control her powers at the X-Mansion, the X-Men are sent on several missions. Eventually the X-Men learn of Magneto’s plan to cover the Earth in darkness from his base on Asteroid M. You can play as one of fifteen X-Men Characters.

It’s a role-playing so that means you create a team, in this case, four characters at a time, to gain experience and level up as the story unfolds. You can assign them roles as AI characters, equip weapons and powers at will, and traverse through a large-scale marvel universe to foil Magneto’s evil scheme.

What I love about X-Men Legends:

I enjoyed unlocking the characters as I progressed through the story, collecting Danger Room discs to add playability to the game, the feeling of having my hardwork pay off every time a character leveled up, and the background knowledge I get from playing trivial games, acquiring marvel comic book covers, and reading each character bio. The soundtrack wasn’t bad either.

What I didn’t love about X-Men Legends:

The story was kinda short for my taste and the replayability is moderately low. The graphics weren’t the greatest either. After beating the game, all you get is some stupid alternate costumes that look like cheetah print or something. The multiplayer mode wasn’t that all too good.

Overall rating:
8.5/10

The game in it entirety was great for its time. It still is great. Nowadays, you gotta pay for DLC packages for the newer games. So I’m glad X-Men Legends came out over ten years ago. Wow! Has it really been that long?! Before, there was no wifi or DLC so the storyline and the like were the main priority. There was a sequel called X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse but it wasn’t as good. Grade: B
