Thieving this meme from my bro [ profile] ansemaru

Name a fandom and I'll give you some unpopular opinions about it.

I should note that probably all of my opinions are unpopular so this will just be me rambling about things. I think most of my interests are on my userinfo page, although I don't list a lot of anime on there for some reason. Not enough room, really.

30 Days of Video Games Day Six: Favorite puzzle game

Puzzle games are kind of an odd genre for me. I typically don't go looking for one to play, so much as I stumble onto them randomly and get into them. Once that happens I enjoy them well enough, though. I think the last puzzle game I actually asked for or purchased for myself was... the NES version of Dr. Mario? Yeah.

But there's one game I discovered that has become THE ULTIMATE PUZZLE GAME

Imports. Why is it always imports? )
slimequest: (*wink* ;D)
30 Days of Video Games Day Five: A game that really reminds you of someone

And the leading contender for easiest answer in this meme is... )
slimequest: (YOU FAIL)
30 Days of Video Games Day Four: A game that made you sad

Just like a game can make you happy in a lot of different ways, games can cause sadness like that, too. Here's a game with sad content, a sad fanbase (or anti-fanbase?), and just... yeah. It tugs on the heartstrings!

Yes, I realize my tags spoil the game behind the cut )
slimequest: (Dragons are over-rated)
30 Days of Video Games Day Three: A game that makes you really happy

This is a tough one (explaining why it's taken me this long to get to part three...) because "happy" can mean so many different things. The game that I chose made me happy simply due to the fact that it was released at all, plus it made me happy while I was playing it, and the ending was a happy one as well:

I keep using the Japanese boxart, I can't help it )

30 Days of Video Games Day Two: The most underrated game you’ve ever played

The last choice wasn't hard at all, but goddamn. I play nothing but underrated/unappreciated/unknown games half the time. That being said, I can think of one game that a number of people actually played, but either didn't understand or didn't appreciate:

I could only find huge box art, sorry )
slimequest: (The cause of all your ills)
Since I need an excuse to post more, I figured I'd give this thing a shot. I probably won't post every day for 30 days, because my busy video game playing schedule might interfere with my "posting about playing video games" schedule.

30 Days of Video Games Day One: Your current favorite game

I guess this should've been obvious...?

Anyway, DQIX is awesome. It's basically DQIII all over again, but with fully customizable characters and a deeper skill and battle system. It's got a story that's interesting enough without a dramatic cutscene every 5 minutes which explains that all your characters lived in the same orphanage until they went back in time and became their own grandfathers WHO WEREN'T REALLY THEIR GRANDFATHERS BUT THEIR GRANDFATHER'S NOBODIES who in a past life once served the last boss who is actually the main character's dog.

There are innovations like multiplayer co-op (you can actually play through the entire game with another person if you wanted to), an improved alchemy system, and a well-done job system that makes each job unique while allowing skills to be passed from one to another. There's also a wi-fi aspect with DQVC, which allows you to receive new quests and buy exclusive items.

Speaking of the quests, they're an interesting, time-consuming (yet usually fun) new aspect of DQIX. Basically, it gives you more to do in the game, including bizarre battle requests and your standard fetch quests. The rewards are usually worth it, too. Between all the content in the game itself plus downloadable quests and grottos, the game has a HUGE amount of post-game play. I'm currently hovering around 150 hours myself, and I've yet to do it all.

There's a lot of fanservice from other DQ games as well. Via DQVC, you can get "special guests" from other DQ games to visit the game's main hangout spot. From there, you can talk to them and possibly snag copies of their equipment and clothing to cosplay in. You can also fight "legacy bosses", which basically includes all the previous DQ game's last bosses, and they drop other nostalgic equipment to use.

All in all, it's a really great addition to the DQ series that retains all the traditional fun of DQ while adding in a lot of new things. I'm usually content to shelve a DQ game for a while once I beat the main game and whatever small amount of post-game content there is (though I always come crawling back eventually), but I just can't put DQIX down for long. The fact that it's on a portable system actually makes it more addicting since you can take it everywhere, and play in short bursts if your schedule doesn't allow for marathon sessions.

So, yeah, it's my current obsession. And being a DQ game puts it in an automatic "favorite" spot in my heart <3
slimequest: (*jab jab*)

I keep accidentally taking pictures of myself. Let me tell you, the Myspace angle might be flattering, but the DSi "I just got out of bed and I want to play games" angle is NOT. But, actually, despite the fact that I "had" to upgrade, it's pretty cool. Nothing to toss your DS Lite out of the window for yet, though.

Anyway, some unfinished business:

Icon meme, again )
Forcibly imposed upon me by [ profile] krile.

You know how sometimes people on your friend's list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when are they working THERE? Since when are they dating HIM/HER? since when???" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you *should* already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy mine below, erase my answers putting yours in their place then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration! One-Word-Answers seldom help anyone out...

Words )

Well, that took some time to do. Now, to soft reset for eternity to see if my Deoxys is good.

Plundered from just about everyone:

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick three of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

(the squee and whoo are apparently part of the meme, before you get any ideas)

ANYWAY~ onto the icons [ profile] timgeo chose~!
