The World Ends With You : NDS : Squaresoft


This game is fantastic. A perfect portable RPG as it can be fun to grind a few battles, level up and put down until next time.

I'm in the middle of a replay of FF7.

I loved this game back in the day, but I never noticed how flawed this game was when I first played it. The "mini-games" are especially annoying. There was one part on the glacier (after the snowboarding part - which was about 3 minutes too long on its own) where I had to jump across this series of ice platforms using a certain pattern. Every time I failed (which was frequent), I had to start over again. After about fifteen tries (!!!!!!!!!!!!!), I finally got through and thought I was on my way to the next part. Instead, I found a dead end with a treaure chest. For all my troubles, I was awarded a goddamned accessory that protects against instant death.

Also, I understand that the summons were basically a chance to flex the graphical muscles of the PS1 back in '97. But watching a four minute summon is like being in purgatory. Sometimes I get so bored that I start counting polygons.

I'm still gonna finish it, but I had to get that off my chest.

Haha, I remember in Final Fantasy 7 using the 6 x's mana attached to bahamut zero (or whatever, it was soo long ago) and having to sit through that summon 6 times. Took forever.

Right now I'm playing Tales of Symphonia, and sorta playing Earthbound...

I'm playing Skies of Arcadia (DC) right now. Got it in January using an amazon gift card that I got for xmas, played for about four hours, and then set it aside after getting distracted by KOTOR. Picked it up again a couple of days ago and I'm really enjoying it. (Not that I didn't before. Star Wars simply trumps all!) It's such a beautiful game. Anyone have an estimate for how long it takes? I tend to do most side quests in games like this. I'm guessing it's pretty lengthy.
