Pokemon Go (Android)
Evolved Phanpy into Donphan, then hatched a Stantler and caught a Yanma. There was a big Easter event, but I didn't get anything new out of it. I did, however, obtain almost enough Togepi candies t get Togetic. I only need one more...


Alien Shooter 2: Reloaded (PC)
Started this and I like it almost as much as the original. My one complaint is that it's a bit laggy, which causes the screen to jerk when scrolling. Currently, I just finished the fifth mission.

Pokemon Go (Android)
Slow week. I caught a Shuckle, and I decided to evolve my only Tyrogue. It evolves into one of three other Pokemon, based on its stats and somewhat on RNC. I was afraid if I did so, I'd end up with my fourth Hitmonlee. Fortunately, it became Hitmontop.


Arc Rise Fantasia (Wii)
Man, has this game gotten nuts in the last few sessions. I first ventured into a bandit camp inside of a coastal cave, where I fought Paula and Luna. They gave me a run for my money, but I managed to persevere and defeat them. With two of them using multiple attacks per turn, they were really ripping into me. Once Paula fell, though, Luna was easy prey. It just took a lot of chipping away...

Pokemon Go (Android)
The recent spring event allowed me to knock a few water-based Pokemon off my list, including Remoraid, Octillery, Lanturn and Mantine. I also managed to get another metal coat and evolve Onix into Steelix, plus I got an Up-grade on Sunday. Alas, I don't have enough Porygon candies to get Porygon2.


Arc Rise Fantasia (Wii)
Resumed the game. I made it to a huge city, Diamont, where you run around all over the place trying to trigger numerous cutscenes. I should be able to leave the city soon and embark on the next quest.

Thus ends The Bard's Tale...
April 02, 2017

I finally finished the 2004 remake of The Bard's Tale. Let me tell you, there's no greater feeling than crossing a terrible RPG off your backlog. I'll admit that the game is occasionally chuckle-worthy, but its dumb comedy and lackluster content aren't enough to keep the experience interesting. I would rant at length, but I've just written a review for it. You can read my anger then.

Teslagrad (PS4)
Finished it. I was going to review it, but it's on indefinite hold. We'll see if I can muster the inspiration to write one in the future.


Fire Pro Wrestling Returns (PS2)
Dug this one out of the closet and played around with it. I've mostly been setting up and watching computer controlled battles, because it's that damn entertaining. I learned that pitting Andre the Giant against Bison Smith is not a good idea, as they both run out of fuel after a few minutes and spend the rest of the match panting. Every time one of them would connect with a slam, he would automatically go into exhaustion and would be unable to cover the other man. Eventually, Bison was able to pull off a consecutive slam and a cover to pin Andre.

Trine: Enchanted Edition (PC)
Powered through and finally finished this one. This was one of the first Steam games I purchased, about seven years ago.


Teslagrad (PS4)
Defeated a very frustrating third boss, then moved on to a group of puzzles involving a huge orb similar to a hamster ball. I completed that segment and then entered a new area that I haven't had time to examine. I hope to review this one when I'm finished.


Gone Home: Console Edition (PS4)
Restarted and played through the whole thing in one sitting. Good story. Don't expect a review out of me, though.

I haven't gamed much lately, mostly because I've been trying to catch up on my movie and book backlogs. I did polish off the novel Divergent, and I'm well into A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. I would have the latter done by now, as it's a short novel, but I put it off the side for a bit so I could finish the former book and Risen 3.


Pokemon Go (Android)
Not much to report. I caught a Girafarig and a Chikorita, plus I hatched Tyrogue, Larvitar and another Porygon. Now I just need to obtain an Upgrade and 27 more candies to get Porygon2.


Teslagrad (PS4)
Defeated the second boss and obtained a cloak that allows me to utilize the various colored magnetic waves. I explored a little bit more, but I think I may be stumped on where to go next.
