Hey there loyal followers!
So, what can I tell you – the last two weeks, I’ve been attempting to put my social life on hold, and focusing entirely on playing RPG’s.
The games I began with were Mass Effect (at home) and Chrono Trigger (on the DS for the journey to and from work).
So far, I have logged about 9 hours on Chrono trigger, and 8.5 hours on Mass Effect – I know it’s not much for 2 weeks, but even with a social life on hold, I’m a mega busy person.
Anyway, I’m writing this blog to give my first impressions of both games, maybe with some screen shots too.
I’ll try not to make it too boring.
In hindsight, this was probably not the best RPG to start with right away. You see, when you start the game, you are in a house, and not told anything, but to go to the village fair.
Now for me, being an RPG noob, I was completely lost and had no idea about the rules of the game – as in, that it would hold everything I did against me. Haha.
It wasn’t until AGES later that I realised there’s a tutorial house, which tells you all the things I wanted to know – it’s just shame no-one told me about it!
So yeah, the lack of instructions had me pretty lost – but if you are frequent RPG gamer, you would know these things before going in. However, from my point of view, it was a bit disappointing.
Now, that said, I simply cannot fault the rest of the game. It is possibly one of the most addictive games I have ever played. The dialogue is hilarious, the characters are awesome, and the music is just out of this world!
If you have never played this game, get yourself a SNES, or a DS, and GET ON IT!
I think I’ve broken my thumbs from non-stop play. You can’t imagine how lost I was when my DS ran out of power one day 🙁
But with a charger at work now, and one at home, that will not be happening again!
So far I have reached SPECTRE status, and investigated one planet on my journey after becoming a SPECTRE. So it’s still very very early days. Long ways to go yet.
