Pokemon Silver brought me to my favorite region, and let return to Kanto as well. In an era now long since passed it is good to find myself playing this amazing game. This is actually the first time I’ve played it, in English, as the first time I played through it, it was a Japanese import. I had received it as a gift and the gifter had decided it would be cool to get an imported copy of both gold and silver. I needed a guide to play through the game, as obviously at the age of 8 I had no idea how to read Japanese.

Through playing that game though I developed a love of this region. Crystal followed after I had logged so many hours in my Japanese imports. I discovered my favorite Pokemon in Johto, and that Pokemon is Feraligatr. I also discovered a few other mainstays to a Johto team of mine, and that is always a good thing.

Coming back to Johto brings me back to a time now lost. A time where you couldn’t just wirelessly trade for Pokemon. You needed to have your friend nearby, literally next to you. My friends were around a lot as  8-year old which certainly is a good thing. Pokemon Silver was one of those amazing games that you wanted to play knowing friends were playing it as well. I logged hours upon hours in these old games even after my younger sister deleted my save files.

Johto will always be a stand out region to me because it brought us back to Kanto, the only time a game has done that. Two regions in one game, now that was revolutionary. I remember seeing Kanto for the first time in the game. Having just beat all the gyms it was time to head to the Elite Four. Surfing along I hop off Feraligatr and bam a man comes up to me, tells me I’m in Kanto. My young mind was blown, I was ecstatic.

Johto also has the distinction of having the first dark type Pokemon which in of itself is so cool. Pokemon that could stand up to the power of the wicked psychic types. Those psychic types really were so strong, it is actually a little shocking. I’ll always hope for a dark type gym, but of course in Japan, they are considered just a little too evil.

Pokemon Silver is just such a great game, with amazing music, great new Pokemon, and so many things to do and explore. Having 16 gym badges is also such a blast as you literally have double the fun. Battling Kanto Gym Leaders is also fun, along with facing Red and Blue again. I was a little disappointed that you couldn’t face your old team like in Twitch Plays Pokemon. That really would have been a great touch.

While it might have been weird playing a Japanese import I will always look back on that time with happiness. Playing Pokemon Silver will always have an effect on me, and I hope one day we get a next-gen remake of this game. I will always be down to jump back into this game, and relive the story, and remember what it was like, being 8. Playing a brand new Pokemon game before other kids, not understanding the game and using a guide, but loving it all the same.

Pokemon Silver will always be one of those comfort games, and I’m glad for it. I shocked myself this time playing the game through in only 15 hours, and to me that is extraordinary. So, thank you to my team of Feraligatr, Girafarig, Ampharos, Togetic, Donphan, and the Shiny Gyarados, you were all amazing. Pokemon Silver is available now on the Eshop, and if you’ve never experienced it I wholeheartedly think you should!

Yokai Watch 2 was an awesome game and of course, following the Pokemon model, it is time for Yokai Watch’s first third game. In Psychic Specters, you, play the same game mostly, but there are little moments here and there that are different. It is really still just such a solid game, and one that will hold fans attention until Yokai Watch 3 and Yokai Watch Busters finally come westward.

Yokai Watch 2 Psychic Specters is certainly just as fun even if you have played the game before. The world is always such a fun place to explore and there are so many Yokai to befriend. All of the QR Codes of work again for this game, so you can use them to your heart’s content. This game really allows you to play how you want and that is a good thing.

Psychic Specters also comes with a lot of extra content, to build upon the first two entries. You can now befriend the Wicked Yokai which is a cool thing. Those Wicked Yokai looked really cool and I am glad to be able to befriend them. They certainly act nicer once befriended but it just is cool to have former baddies on your side.

There is also a full story for Dame Deadtime, who in my opinion is a truly terrible villain. Her boss fight can be tedious, and her character to me just seems weak. But it is always interesting learning about characters. You also get the whole story on Darknyan which is another interesting one. Far more interesting to me than the Dame’s story.

You can also befriend other strange Yokai including the Jewelnyans and the nose picking Snottle. After completing the main story head to Yokai Land and experience a whole new area. Psychic Blasters is a revamped version of Yokai Watch Blasters and the perfect lead up to the full game which should come westward in the future.

All in all, if you liked Yokai Watch 2 you will certainly enjoy this game. If you have the first one you can transfer your save file and continue from where you left off. Or start fresh, and experience the game all over again. This game is also great for anyone who has only played the first game or never at all. It has a good beginning section and allows you to see all the Yokai from both games.

Yokai Watch 2 Psychic Specters is a great RPG and one that you’ll probably enjoy. If you haven’t yet, you can get this game on your 3DS in stores or on the Eshop!

Ever since I first set eyes on this Oasis I knew I wanted to play this game. After seeing game play and then trying out the demo I knew I had found another game to enjoy. Ever Oasis really is such a great game, and is is a game that just shimmers. It has cute characters and even some of it’s villains are cute too. The interactions between the hero and Esna are such a big part of the game., and you feel when your seedling gets hurt and are overjoyed when he is.

Ever Oasis is half Dungeon Crawler and Half Oasis Builder. You need to be working on both parts or your Oasis will decline. As you get deeper into the game you really need to keep working on your Oasis. The dungeon crawling is fun and can be quick paced. You need to fight monsters and change your team on the fly. With different races and weapons you will work to figure things out. You will also learn skills which may or may not help out depending on the situation.

The Oasis is your home and you need to make it great. By working on it you not only gain money but you help out people living in the desert. It is a nice diversion from all the fighting. You can complete quests and get closer to your villagers even if its brief. These characters will offer more quests and soon will sell even more goods. Of course with more goods, you will gain more money.

This game might seem like a lot sometimes, but it is totally worth it. As you travel through dungeons you will gain many items, which will be necessary to sell. It really can seem tedious as you travel back and forth between dungeons and the Oasis. But the developers have made it easy with the inclusion of the Aqua Gates. Using Aqua Gates makes traveling back and forth quite instantaneous. Plus, it makes it easier to save when you need to.

The story really plays into the characters and you can play the game quite easily by simply learning which monsters are weak to which weapons. If you want a game that has both exploration and a little town building then this game really is for you. It might not be the longest game but there is something about this game that makes replaying it an appealing thought. It is simple enough that newbies can get into it but also robust enough to sate true RPG Fan’s and their appetites. You can pick up Ever Oasis at stores or on the Nintendo EShop. The Oasis needs you and your seedling to save the day, don’t let Esna down!

When the Nintendo Switch was first announced to have paid online services, many were afraid that the cost would be too high. Some were thinking of how Sony has raised the price of PS+ a large amount, and how Xbox Live is expensive as well.

We have no need to fear it seems as Serkan Toto has mentioned that Tatsumi Kimishima revealed to Nikkei that online services will cost 2-300 Yen ( USD 17.50-26.50) on a yearly basis. This is much better than many were fearing and should come as a relief.

 

He also repeats that Switch’s virtual console games will have online features such as multiplayer.

Are you feeling better about this? I sure am!

No Gravatareshop-credit-amazon-656x423

Amazon is now selling Wii U and 3DS eShop credit codes with denominations of $10, $20, $35, and $50. These are the standard amounts we have seen for the eshop so far, but there is something else that is interesting. They are also including new codes such as $5, $45, and $70. Could this imply something big is changing for the way Nintendo handles the eshop accounts? We will have to wait and see. It is possible we may even see the $5, $45, and $70 as cards in the future.
