July is over, and as my mom is always observing: the days are already getting shorter. Not that I really mind, I think I’m one of the few people who isn’t very fond of the Summer: I’ve always like Spring and Fall more. Not as hot as Summer, and cosy longer nights for gaming too. But don’t worry, this blog isn’t about the weather or about the way times seems to fly when you’re getting older. Nope, I’m going to pick my game now the month July.
I bet you won’t be very surprised at my choice. It can only be Pokémon Go, combined with ‘a real Pokémon game’, in my case Pokémon X. But I bet a lot of fans picked up their older games to get their pokéfix. I love the way the game brings people together. Living in a big city there’s no shortage of Pokéstops or Gyms. Still, there are places where the gamers gather, from young to old. Places where someone benefits the others too by putting up a Lure Module.
As I feel there’s not enough to do in the mobile game to satisfy my gaming cravings, I turned to Pokémon X that I abandoned after 6 gyms 3 years ago. I had fun with the game again ( see the article here) and have since seen the credits role.
What else have I been playing? I’ve been trying to get into Monster Hunter Generations on my European 3DS. Some of my gaming lady friends are so enthusiastic for the game, and I really felt like I had to try. I wrote about the start of my hunt here.
I must say I’m still very unsure about the game. I like what I’ve done so far, but for all the wrong reasons: I love my Palico friends, I love gathering things and exploring the Jurassic Frontier. Combining items, trying out new equipment. In short, I like the game for all the wrong reasons. You see, I’ve just tried the first big monster fight. And I’ve already fainted twice. Trying to muster the courage to try it again though.
Seriously, the Great Maccao might just be my downfall as a fledgling hunter. You see, I have always been awful at action fighting. That’s why I always tend to stick to turn based battles. Maybe I should switch from my dual blades, I am really way to slow…
This month, the Vita got some rest. I did proceed with Atelier Sophie, the book has finally turned into the doll Plachta. And that wraps up my gaming for this month.
What was your favorite game this month? Did you play any of the games I mentioned, and if you picked up an older Pokémon game, which one did you pick?
