Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn (PS3)

Got every single trophy on this one, ending my journe into DWG. Not gonna do 1 since the PS3 version of DWG1 doesn't have trophies.

They did the maps here far better than in 3, that's for sure. The larger majority of them are nice and open without being too big like some of DWG2's were and bringing back the space maps was a good idea. They also added ocean stages set in the ORB Union but they're basically space stages with large bodies of water replacing zero g space.

The mobile suit selection was great too since I didn't have to pay extra for Mr Bushido or the other Gundam Meisters and it turned out the Susanowo is pretty OP either way. The suits I DID have to pay for were still pretty OP anyway, especailly the fuckin Stamen. Seriously, play that mobile suit for a few minutes, you'll see what I mean.

Sadly once I got to the last few trophies involving getting cards it kinda became a somewhat boring grind.
There was a sig here. Its gone now (thanks photobucket ya fecks)

Donut County

An interesting, if short, indie game with a sort of a reverse Katamari Damacy vibe;  You control a mobile hole in the ground with the goal of dropping all of the objects in each level into said hole.  The story is delivered mostly through flashbacks, with residents of the town all gathered at the bottom of the hole sharing stories of how they wound up there and trying to figure out how to get themselves and their town back to the surface.

As a physics puzzle game, it's quite fun.  The hole starts out tiny and the more objects that fall in the bigger it gets, allowing you to swallow up more stuff.  A lot of the challenge comes from knowing how to strategically position the hole, or dropping certain environmental objects in the right order.  Eventually you get the ability to launch things back out of the hole to further manipulate the game physics.

The writing is where the game really shines.  The main character, BK, is a selfish, asshole raccoon who was the one directly controlling the hole until he ended up falling in himself, and throughout the story he constantly denies ever having done anything wrong despite it being painfully obvious to everyone else that it's 100% his fault.  Most of the characters are pretty simple archetypes, but they're all likable enough and dialogue has the casual air of a chat room with friends.  Every object dropped into the hole also unlocks its entry in the "Trashipedia" with some pretty funny descriptions.

The only problem with the game is that it's just too short.  The whole thing start to finish is at best two hours long, and it left me wanting more.  But for only 10 bucks or so, that's fine.  The simple controls along with the writing and art style make for a nice, chill experience.

While i am willing to agree that braids story was pretentious wank, I think the puzzle design was great and the game looks and sounds really good.

Putting down Kurohyou 2 ended up being a mistake as now I lack the motivation to get back into it. So instead, I played...

Yakuza Kiwami

My first proper Yakuza game. I had a lot more fun with it than I did with Kurohyou. Kiryu was a nice protagonist, being such a wholesome dude despite being former yakuza. We need more people like him.

Combat was fun. Liked the style switching and unlocking all the moves/techniques for them. Didn't like that Dragon style progression was locked behind sidequests, but eh. Kind of mixed on boss fights. Some were really fun to do while others were really annoying (that gun guy and the penultimate fight come to mind). Dealing with people surrounding you can also be annoying. Maybe it's because I was playing on Hard.

Outside of combat, there's a lot of side stuff you can do too. RC racing, mahjong, shogi, bowling, karaoke (rhythm game), etc. It's nice having all these options when you don't want to deal with the story at the moment. Speaking of karaoke, the music in the game is pretty great.

Anyway the game is like $20 new since it's a part of the Playstation Hits label (including the prequel too). No reason not to get it.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (JP 1.0)

Initially popped this in to test my SFC and make sure it's working, and once again I sure as hell couldn't put it down. This time in Japanese! and with a few extra glitches/exploits as it's the original release. It was weird playing this without being able to read any dialogue but dammit I loved the ride.
