Progress Report 2017 #1

  Because I don't want the blog to die and I want to write... Progress Reports are back!

 Suikoden 3: My main course at the moment, I'm kinda diggin' the game. I'm gonna finish Geddoe's chapters first, since he doesn't need to recruit anyone, then do Thomas, since he's the one that apparently needs the most recruits, then finish Chris and theeen do Hugo, because he's the character that stroke my fancy the most!

 Shin Megami Tensei IV: I defeated Peliades and crossed to the other part o' town. I love the Shin Megami Tensei games, but IV isn't all that fun. It doesn't help that the presentation is so underwhelming, they could've done better, but they didn't. Heck, even the 2D sprites are a bit lackluster, Medusa looked kinda funky. Anyways, I grew a bit bored of the game, so I decided to take a break with Suikoden 3.

 Corpse Party - Blood Drive: It's terrible, it is. I so want to review this piece of shovelware, but I'd rather finish it first... I'll try to finish it this year, but it's so... boring.

 Resident Evil 6: I plan on picking it up later down 2017, but not anytime soon

 Lord of Arcana: I don't know why I keep this game in my 'Now Playing' list. It's terrible, horrible, yet... I feel kinda dirty not finishing it and shelving it... but the game is not worth my time, anyone's time, so... I dunno.

 Mass Effect 1: Alright, I'm gonna give it another chance.... not anytime soon, but during 2017 for sure.

 Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate: Gotta come back to it! Maybe, maybe after finishing SMT IV.

 Dragon's Dogma - Dark Arisen: Maybe after Mass Effect 1-3. Or after one of 'em if I need a break.

Now playing: Suikoden 3

 It's been a while!
 So I just started Suikoden 3. Why 3? Because it's the one I played... even if only a few minutes. If I manage, I might even play the second one this year... Assuming I can pony up the dough!

 I decided to start with Chris, because why not, and it turns out that she's kinda... evil, and so are her allies! Just saw her raze an entire village because, apparently, that was their only way out of a war. The game seems interesting, although I'm not much of a fan of the automatic 'Strategic Battles'. The Skill Points, to customize your skills, is a more interesting idea though!

 It seems fun, I've high hopes for Suikoden 3.

Month Overview: February 2017

 Tally:
Painkiller - Hell & Damnation 6.0
Tony Hawk's - Proving Ground 6.0
Moon Diver                 2.5
Dillon's Rolling Western           4.0
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D 8.0



 Sigh, definitely not an exciting month, filled with mediocrity and a few stinkers.



 Game of February 2017:
 The only standout this month was Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. It should have fixed the game's imprecise controls from the Wii version, since now we have buttons, but somehow, it has its own unique control issues. That aside, this is the same game I loved on the Wii, and it's an ideal game to get on the 3DS IF you haven't played the original.

 Runner-up:
 Painkiller Hell and Damnation gets the edge because it's based on the original Painkiller, it has some of its best levels. It's a shame that this game is more or less a scam, but it's the only way to play PK on the PS3, so I'll take what I can get.
