Flashy and Flashier

Time to brag. FINALLY Muramasa Rebirth and Project X Zone came in. They both look awesome on their respective systems. They both play smoothly so far and I am totally just mashing buttons without really knowing what I am doing, but whatever. I’ll figure stuff out…sometime.

Project X Zone (pronounce that “X” as cross) doesn’t care about the plot. They all know each other and portals everywhere, so what? In like the 1 hour I’ve been able to put in so far (still tutorialing), each add onto the combat system not only adds more ways to damage the enemies but more flash and special attacks. There’s also a good chunk of fanservice, both in terms of fan favorite characters and boobs. Haven’t paid too much attention to jiggle physics yet but I’m sure they factor in somewhere. The sprites and 3D effects are similar to Fire Emblem: Awakening’s. Pretty subtle and not really necessary, but I’ve kept 3D on for now.

Meanwhile Muramasa Rebirth looks amazing on the Vita screen. I played a little bit of the Wii version (will probably drop it out of my backlog since my Wii backlog is long enough) and the colors and so much more vibrant in the Vita version. Makes me wonder if anyone has played/basked in Okami on a Vita. I love having a jump button though sometimes I jump instead of talking to people. Since talking is so frightening lol… (Actually it’s just me and my failure at games.)

I can also “study” Japanese since Project X Zone and Muramasa Rebirth have Japanese voices, though the voices are a little too quiet for me and kind of slow. But then again, Japanese conjugations and such make everything longer.

Lastly, Shadow Hearts: Covenant worked again so I finally started that. Battle system feels faster and flashier than the first. The only “major” downgrade is Yuri’s lack of trenchcoat. The game already starts off with references to the first game, so I am very glad that I played that game first. It’s all those little things that count.

Oh, and in Tales of Graces f I have Accel mode for everyone now. Wow, everything really is getting flashier and flashier 🙂
