Monday, August 20, 2012 this what I think it is??

I'm already freaking out here at what I believe may be the small teaser to an actual sequel to one of my most favorite games to come out of Square Enix, The World Ends With You!! The game back then (now more than 4 years ago since I 100% the entire storyline) was such a well-crafted game for a non-Final-Fantasy title from Square Enix. Definitely for the multi-tasker ADD person in mind, The World Ends With You was a strong departure from the typical sword and armor faire, making the real world the setting for this modern-day RPG. This, along with many other strong points, made TWEWY such a fan favorite, even warranting its characters a special appearance in the latest Kingdom Hearts game, Dream Drop Distance. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the character designer for both games is the same - Tetsuya Nomura.

The countdown is set to end around August 27th, and you can be sure I'll be there at the ready!!

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance - Mark of Mastery Edition

That title is a mouthful, but I finally got the "Mark of Mastery" 10-Anniversary Edition of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. It's been a long journey so far: from Kingdom Hearts 1 on the PS2, to Chain of Memories on the GBA, back to Kingdom Hearts 2 on the PS2, to 365/2 Days on the DS, to Birth By Sleep on the PSP (Yes, I'm still omitting the Re:Coded game), the story has been stretched quite long.

At this point, you're either a fan or you're not. And with something like the "Mark of Mastery" edition in my hands, you bet your bippy I'm a fan indeed. Let's see what's inside.

Lollipop Chainsaw, and gaming in moderation

One of the biggest disadvantages any video game reviewer has is time. There's never enough of it when you need to play through the game enough to write an honest opinion of a gamer's experience. But in truth, hardly any gamer will sit down for 20 hours straight and feverishly play a game to its end credits. The time spent in appreciating a game, taking it in a couple hours at a time…that's when a gamer can truly give a more honest review. Now, take this thought process and apply it to a game - let's say Lollipop Chainsaw.
