Not an easy task, to pick a game of the Month July. Not because I’ve played so many games that I don’t know which one to pick, but because I’ve been in holiday for most of the month, and I have hardly played anything. I do wonder why I never play when I’m on holiday. I do diligently take my devices with me, but somehow after the first days the need to pick them up to play anything just leaves me.
So what did I play? I played some Fantasy Life in the plane on my American 3DS on the way back to the Netherlands. But since I’ve been home the Vita got all my attention. Mostly because I read about Dragon Quest Builders which will be released on the Vita ( and hopefully will be localized). In writing the article about it I got curious about Minecraft. Searching online I found a good deal to buy Minecraft for the Vita used, so on a whim I decided to give it a try. I’ll write about my first steps in the world of Minecraft later in another blog.
Another Vita game I stumbled on is a very new release for the Vita, though it has been around on the Playstation 3 for a year or so. I came across it when I looked at the games Gust had released, thinking back at how much I loved Atelier Rorona. I was really thinking to download the other Atelier games in the series, But I found Ar Nosurge, Ode to an unborn Star instead, and took the plunge. I’m still in the early stages of the game, and I will let you know what I think about it in a later blog. First impressions of this RPG taking place in space on a huge spaceship though is that the game’s story is an interesting one, and there is a lot of story to take in!
Those are all the games I played this month, now to pick one. I think I will have to go with Minecraft on the Vita for my game of the Month July. First I was baffled at what exactly I had to do, but after getting the hang of it ( or at least, getting my first glimpse of what the game can be like) I found it hard to put the game down. Which is a sure sign as far as I’m concerned of a good game. Who would have thought, me playing Minecraft? I didn’t, that’s for sure!
Oh, Ar Nosurge is a really good game. I played the ps3 version and I’m even thinking of buying the vita version as well, just like I did for the first three atelier games. The game is good enough for me to want it on the go. There are some fanservice moments that can be a little heh, but the story and the setting are a true treat. And it’s sadly not often we get futuristic RPGs, so enjoy.
Thanks, I will! The only thing that makes me raise my eyebrows up till now about the game is the skimpy clothing!
I need to get back to playing Ar Nosurge. I like the characters although the combat system could be better.
My thoughts on the game are in the works, not yet sure what will be in my article…I like the game, that much is certain!
