Games I've been playing lately


Unfortunately, my computer broke a while ago, and I haven't really been playing my Xbox 360 all that much, so the amount of time I've spent gaming recently has been quite small. Most of my gaming time has been spent playing either Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors (999), The World Ends With You or Pokemon Black on my DS.

I already reviewed Pokemon Black (see below this post), and the thought of trying to review Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors hurts my brain. It's a mix of a choose-your-own-adventure visual novel plus an escape-the-room game for the DS, with an amazing story which has 7 mindfuck endings. All I can say is try it out. It may sound strange, but you should follow a walkthrough, because getting the right order of endings is crucial to your understanding of the overall story (you'll understand if you play it). I'm nowhere near finished The World Ends With You, plus it is 4 years old, so I probably won't be posting any reviews for a few weeks until I get my new computer or some new 360 games.

Until then, I'll probably be posting about gaming news and maybe some opinion-piece sort of articles. Topics may include Australia's retarded censorship laws and Nintendo America's choice to not release the Mother/Earthbound series in English. Feel free to support me by commenting and following!

Also, I added a poll on the side of the page, just to see what everyone's most anticipated games are this year. There was too many for me to choose from, so I ended up making it multi-choice. Vote away!

  1. Is 999 hours good?
    You should also try Time Hollow

  2. Yes, 999 is very good, but it's VERY niche.
    I suggest you try the demo:

    Also Destructoid has a very good review on it.
    Never heard of Time Hollow, will check it out :)

  4. You need to use a walk through to fully understand it? Is it that complicated, or just poorly written in the story line department?

    The walkthrough is to get the right endings in the right order.
    The story is brilliant, but you will be mega confused with certain orders of endings.
    You actually have to get one of the fake endings to unlock the true ending.
    It sounds strange, but trust me, you'll understand it if you finish the game.

    I really want a 3DS, but the launch titles are pretty weak, waiting for Animal Crossing and Ocarina of Time, personally.

  8. Here's the walkthrough I was talking about, by the way:
    http://www.gamefaqs.com/ds/961351-nine-hours-nine-persons-nine-doors/faqs/61411
    It's very good and spoiler-free.
    I wouldn't use it for the puzzles, just for what DOORS to go through, as they are what determine the ending.

  9. The World Ends With You, is a top game

  10. I've been playing pokemon on my phone for days now. It isn't the new one, because for some reason I can't get myself to buy any new ones. But Pokemon is Pokemon nonetheless!

  12. Man, the new Pokémon Black must be awesome. I only played Ruby when I was in elementary school...WOOW here is the nostalgia flowing through my body.

  13. Pokemon Black is awesome, as is the rest of the pokemon series. 999 i havnt played and i dont see all the fuss behind the world ends with you.

  14. I still have yet to play black... Only blue, and that was like 10 years ago.

  15. Wouldn't it make more sense for 9/9/9 to have 9 different endings instead of 7? t_t

    ReplyDelete
  16. hahahah oh god, classic engrish, love it. On the 999 game it says '9 persons'. Persons is a word but that usage just isn't really right ( lol

  17. Xuain, "9 Hours, 9 People, 9 Doors" just wouldn't sound as good :)
