Usually, SMT IV retails for $50. Using the coupon code “EMCXNWL37″, Newegg will give you 10% off all 3DS games. Obviously $5 isn’t that huge of a deal, but it’s still better than nothing. What makes the deal even sweeter is that I’ll be getting a $30 rebate since I bought Fire Emblem as well!
As some of you guys know, I’m in the middle of my Final Fantasy VI playthrough. The one problem with FFVI is that the save points appear about once every 30-45 minutes. This can prove pretty incompatible with my OCD-like desire to save every 5-10 minutes. I’m constantly freaking out while playing the game because I’m afraid that I may have to leave suddenly or that my PS3 may shut off randomly.
Yesterday I nearly shit myself. I was on the floating continent (about the halfway point of the game). After making my way through the whole floating continent (took about an hour), I had both low HP and MP. I was hoping for a save point. Unfortunately, instead of heading towards to save point, somehow I missed it and went straight into the boss battle. This wasn’t just any boss, this was the hardest boss until this point in the game, the final mid-game boss. At this point I already knew I was in trouble, since I was low on both HP and MP.
After battling out the boss to the best of my abilities, two out of four of my characters were dead. The two remaining characters both had about 80 HP (out of 1,300). Literally one more hit would’ve knocked me out. I nearly crapped my pants at this point, since I’d already put nearly 1.5 hours into the game since my last save.
Thank God for Locke, who landed a decisive final blow, saving me from having to play that whole section through again.
Unfortunately, afterwards, I still had to get off the floating continent (racing against a timer), and nearly didn’t make it in time; since I was encountering monsters every 3 steps.
Hopefully I never have to endure something like that again!
Pwnee Studios has revealed the release date for Cloudberry Kingdom on all consoles. The game will be arriving on PSN on July 30th. A day later, July 31st, the game will be coming to both Steam and XBLA. Lastly, the game will be released on the Wii U eShop on August 1st.
The game will cost $10 on all platforms. I’ll have a review ready for the game when it is released.
Yup, turns out if you download Tank! Tank! Tank! from the Wii U eShop you’ll get 60 coins. Best part is that the game is Free 2 Play, so you’re pretty much getting 60 coins for free.
Now I’m only 20 coins away from platinum status for next year!
1 Month Later
60+ hours into the game
40 hours within the first 2 weeks (that’s 3 hours per day)
I’m done with this game!
I’m tired of coming back every day just to catch some more bugs and harvest my perfect peaches. I’m tired of collecting 500,000 bells just to have Tom Nook call it a “trifling sum”, and send me into more debt. P.S. In order to fully pay of your house it costs like 25 million bells.
I’m done with this! My life is no longer devoted to Animal Crossing.
I’ve donated well over half the fishes and bugs to the museum, I have all the fruit, I’ve upgraded my house probably around 10 times, I’ve built tons of stuff in my town, I’ve upgraded my shops, and I’ve caught thousands of bugs to resell to Resale.
But now I’m done!
I’ll be buying Shin Megami Tensei 4 on Tuesday, after which I will receive my $30 rebate. I will then continue playing Final Fantasy VI on the PS3. But one things certain, I’m done with Animal Crossing!
To be fair, I’m happy I bought the game. I got more than enough value from New Leaf, much more than most other games I pick up, and I’m satisfied with my purchase. I loved Animal Crossing, but it’s time to kiss it goodbye, and move onto bigger and better things.
After all, I still haven’t got around to playing The Last of Us.
