Dragon Quest VII is too long, but that's OK

I really want to love Dragon Quest VII, but I don’t have the time right now to do it justice and it upsets me. I’ve finished Dragon Quest IV & V for the 3DS and I jumped head first into this one when it came out in September because it seemed right up my alley.

Finished Legend Of Zelda Four Swords Anniversary Edition For Nintendo 3ds

I finally finished The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition for Nintendo 3DS this week. I’ve been trying to play it at my local Streetpass events for nearly a year, but we always get distracted by the event or no-one wants to play it/has it downloaded to their console.

Animal Crossing New Leaf - One Week Later

This has been a good week. The game I originally bought my 3DS for back in 2011 was released! Animal Crossing: New Leaf is awesome. There aren’t many other ways to describe it. In fact, in the days since release it’s now my 2nd most played game on my 3DS (Second only to AC:WW). I’ve played for 28 hours and 13 minutes at the time of writing this piece. That’s an average of four hours a day; considering I’ve been working 8 or 9 hours most days this week apparently I haven’t been sleeping much…

Backlogs and Buying New Games…. Damn, I really want Persona 4 Golden… but honestly will I get time to play it?

  • All of the Fallout games (without getting bored 4 hours in)

3ds Circle Pad Pro Review

I have pretty big hands, because I’m a pretty big guy. I love my DSi XL for this reason: it’s the most comfortable handheld console I’ve ever owned. I played three hours straight of Dragon Quest on it the other evening. The 3DS is completely different: it makes my hands cramp within half an hour of playing. This is more prevalent in games that use the shoulder buttons such as Mario Kart 7, than it simpler controlled games such as Pushmo.
