Kibou – Things I Played in June (kinda)

June 19, 2009

Kibou/PolymetricaMan, blogging seems to be untrendy or something these days because there haven’t been many posts, huh. Guess I will break that chain, this time with yet another playlog post kinda, but there are impressions and stuff as well, since I went and started MORE new games. What attention span!! Also, some of these games were actually played in May, but uh, details!

To be honest I have not been playing a lot of games lately, since I am slightly addicted to watching other people play games I will never get a chance to play for some reason, but I guess I am getting back into it, especially on the RPG front. It’s been so long since I played something that’s not a SHMUP/Frustrating Gundam game that I forgot what it was like not mashing X to win. Or something.

Games reported on (In no particular order): Shining Force EXA, Final Fantasy VI, Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht, Beyond Good & Evil, Castle Shikigami 2, and Rhythm Tengoku Gold.
