Hey everyone, it's been quite a while since my last post, but I have a pretty good excuse.  I just got back from getting married in Hawaii, so I really didn't have much time for gaming since I was outside enjoying the pristine beaches of Oahu.  Alas I have returned however, so now it's time to get back to work and the usual routine of Thursday updates for my blog.  Let's get started!

New Releases

We're right in the middle of release mania.  We've seen several good games come out every week, so here's what came out this week, the week of 9-22-11.  I'll organize these by dates released.
9-19-11:
Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 (DS)- Dragon quest, in case you haven't heard is a popular rpg out of Japan.  It recently became popular here in the states due to a few commercials with some high profile actors (Seth Green).  This is a weird sort of spin off, so I don't really recommend it (unless you're absolutely obsessed with everything Dragon Quest.  If that's the case, there's nothing I can say to stop you).  I'm not saying it's a bad game, just now worth the amount of money.  Get one of the main releases if you want a good game.
Kirby Mass Attack (DS):  While this is a Kirby game, do not fall simply for the name.  The game looks nothing like the Kirby we know and love (even the one from epic yarn).  You play as a mass of Kirby's, collecting up to 10 Kirby's as you go.  You don't suck up enemies and copy their abilities, you just collect Kirby's.  Not my thing.

9-20-11:
F1-2011 (XBOX 360, Playstation 3):  Not much to say here.  It's a Formula 1 game, the graphics are gorgeous, physics are on par.  Same as usual.
Fallout New Vegas- Lonesome Road (Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC):  This is the new DLC for Fallout: New Vegas.  If you are considering this, you hopefully have New Vegas already and know what it's about.  This new DLC is a sort of prequel to the main story, back when Courier 6 refuses to deliver the platinum chip.  Good expansion of the story, get it if you have New Vegas!
Gears of War 3 (Xbox 360):  It's the new Gears game!!!! Nuff said there.  The visuals are still gorgeous, the controls are still a little sluggish, the Locust are still destroying the world. Epic series. If you like action games, then this is going to be your favorite game released so far.
Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns (DS): Wait, they're still making Harvest Moon games?  I'm sorry, I keeed, but still, what haven't they done already.  Get some of the more classic versions of Harvest Moon if you want to experience this series.
Resident Evil 4 HD (Xbox 360):  Woot! Another Resident Evil 4 Remake.  What is this, the 4th time they remade this game now?  Still, it's a great game, and it'll be nice to replay the Wii version with HD graphics.
Rusty Hearts (PC):  This is a new MMO that looks oddly like a long lost PS2 version of Kingdom Hearts, just without the Disney or Final Fantasy characters.  Could be interesting, although I couldn't find much on it other than a few screen shots and a brief description of the game.  1 user has reviewed it on gamefaqs.com and they gave it an 8.0, so it'll be a while before I know if this one is worth checking out.
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2- Innocent Sin (PSP):  Finally!!!!!  I absolutely love the Shin Megami Tensei series, and this is the only game to not be released in the United States, until now.  I have played Persona 1 on the PSP, and Persona 3 on PS2 and PSP.  Both are amazing games to experience if you're into the JRPG genre.  They are some of the strangest games I've ever played, but it's a good kind of strange.  Go check this one out for sure!!

What I'm Playing

I'm going to keep this short, since I really haven't played too much in the past month.  I did manage to pick up Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Dead Island.  I'm having a lot of fun with both and I'll put up a more detailed review on both sometime in the next few days.  Until then, go play some games!
