    How much more can you train your brain until it explodes?

    I think this game is supposed to relieve stress on the brain. That's my guess based on the title containing the word stress and the fact that stress on the brain may be represented by the chains and then after playing the game they are taken away. [​IMG]

    Well, it adjusts the exercises depending on your brain's stress level. A stressed brain can't be trained effectively so, that's what the training's like.

    I like this software next to the Brain Age title. The others just didn't feel like a brain training title at all such as the last My Angel and Akiyama ones.

    It's 1AM here and playing through the brain stress test of tapping Japanese syllables and numbers in order, I got a stress level of 77% and a reaction level of 35%. Pretty good I guess because I'm pretty tired just now [​IMG]

    Then I took the brain age test and it got 24! Very close to my age [​IMG]

    Then it reports my brain's inflection rate at 50, energetic rate at 52 and wits at 62. It gives me advice about what the ratings mean and what I can do to improve them. Turns out my wits are the same as the average person in Japan.

    Of course, there's various exercises to help improve your stats too. Lots of mic usage here and the balloon blowing one is quite fun! There's one where baseball equipment drops from the air and you have to say the attached words out loud but, the recognition's a bit flaky (or it's probably just my JP pronunciation!)

    All this is tracked by graphs just like Brain Age.

    The sound effects and presentations are better than I anticipated. The voice can get a little annoying when it keeps repeating the same thing again and again.

    Guess I'll be keeping this up and see how it goes [​IMG]

    Of course [​IMG]

    That was just some news I caught off Famitsu though and it sounded really professional back then when they were talking about how it uses ADMTs. The exercises on the other hand didn't look that good but, now I tried it out it's better than expected!
