    I guess being a Tales fanboy is what murdered the game for me. Combat was so dull and boring I couldn't bring myself to care about anything else.

    Well the biggest problems with is the music and it's insultingly easy. The music is pissing off because it's the same background music every world and every level. Seriously look it up, it's just slightly altered. The rest of the music sounds like it's being farted through a kazoo. And the game maybe for kids, but it's insultingly easy, down right pandering really. It feels like a game that can only be improved through DLC.

    I suggest getting the eShop copy because it's really not worth a physical copy. I've played Yoshi's Island for 18 years now (it was my very first game and I am pretty sure I am the biggest fan of game and or Yoshi.) But this game feels like a slap in the face really, a soft slap, but still a slap.

    I love almost every tales out there, but star ocean2 on psx was very very good. Dat voice acting (cheesy/hilarious as hell), and three on ps2 (at least, the first 4 hours of gameplay I could have) was... pretty good also. I have SO4 as well on PS3, but I haven't looked at it.

    I tried it, and (30 secs later) gave me the same ohnoe feeling yoshi island DieSu.

    I mean we already had yoshi story for that, but the music was cool enough.

    Yoshi's Island DS at least felt like a Yoshi's Island game, it wasn't perfect, but it still had better music and still fun.
    Yoshi's Story is mostly all cute, feels like a storybook. Like it wasn't meant to be long, just something that was to be played through quickly and enjoyed.
    This game feels like they rushed through the levels and forgot way too many things, then did the soundtrack at the very last minute.

    Also, found an original Pokémon Yellow cart for 2 euros. It works flawlessly, even the saves seem to work! B-)

    I totally forgot to mention in one of my previous posts that I grabbed the WipEout HD bundle (PSN), that comes with the eponymous game, the Fury DLC, and the DLC versions of those for WipEout 2048 (PSV). I don't have a PSVita, but hey, I have WipEout 2048 free on PS+, so I can check all that out if/when I get one... That said, I'm rather unimpressed with WipEout HD (this is my first taste of the series). I know a lot of people compare it to F-Zero, so I was expecting something at least somewhat comparable, but instead it feels slow, clunky, floaty, and rather uneventful without enough racers. I think I'll stick with F-Zero X and GX for my racing fix, but I'm still glad I have this game in case friends want to play, and if I'm itching to race online.

    Yesterday I picked up Dark Souls (PS3) from GameStop... again. I picked it up around Christmas, but just didn't like it, so I returned it. But I don't know, I really want to give it another chance for some reason, all while certain issues about the game still bug me, I'm enjoying myself more than the first time I played. I'm still dying a lot and don't know what to do, but I'm having fun exploring all the different places I can go.

    Also today, I grabbed Castlevania: Curse of Darkness (Xbox) on Amazon. Originally I was going to wait until I play and beat my copy of the previous game, just to make sure I like it (I know people are mixed on it), but at only about $8 including shipping, including the case and manual, I figured I might as well. I'm glad I did my research first, though... I didn't know there was an Xbox version before I checked, and apparently it's marginally better (minus an insignificant bonus in the PS2 version). Besides, my new Xbox needs some love (I only own three games for it excluding Castlevania, and I bet you can guess what two of them are, chavosaur).

    If they aren't Halo Games then I'll be sorely disappointed and have to teach you how to Xbox >:c

    Speaking of Halo Actually, I'm currently in a bidding war for a Halo Reach 250gig 360 on ebay. I own the Halo Xbox, and the Halo 3 360 so I really wanna add the reach one to that collection. The Halo 4 360 I could care less about. I'd probably buy a broken one just for the sake of having all the Halo Xbox Limited Editions.

    They're Sonic Heroes and Shadow the Hedgehog. Sorry! :P

    Actually, yes, they are Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2. The third game is Spider-Man 2, and I also have the Halo 2 Collector's Edition (CIB, minus the plastic slipcover).

    As cool as it would be, I'm kind of glad that Nintendo doesn't release a new themed home console every time a Zelda game comes out... I'd go so broke. 2013 practically killed me as it is, What with the Wii U bundle, the 3DS XL bundle, and various Zelda memorabilia that came out stateside.

    So as I mentioned earlier, I ordered Final Fantasy VI Advance off Amazon. However, they sent me Final Fantasy IV Advance instead (an easy mistake to make, considering the identical name, minus the swapping of the 'V' and 'I'). I contacted the seller, and he/she responded with an apology, saying a it was a listing error, and they don't actually have FF VI Advance. Furthermore, he/she said they issued me a full refund, and said to keep the game. Keep in mind that this was a $40 purchase, including shipping. I'm absolutely blown away.

    Tl;dr: Bought FF VI Advance on Amazon, got FF IV Advance instead, was given a refund and told to keep the $40 game for free.
