In an effort to avoid turning TFG into a Puzzle and Dragons blog, I am confining all my latest PnD stuff to one post. I’ve been saving up, be warned. =D
The release date for the Zerg expansion to StarCraft 2, Heart of the Swarm, is just around the corner. It was clearly time to get ready! Which is what I did yesterday, not that it too much time. Blizzard is incredibly efficient at taking my money. Just went online and ordered the digital collectors edition. Only reason for the collectors is BATTLE PETS!
Check out this cute little dude:
Anyone else planning on playing?!
Amongst other things (~cough~ Puzzle and Dragons ~cough~), I’ve been spending quite a lot of time playing the very fabulous Ni No Kuni. Like most JRPGs it is fairly travel heavy and in my experience, there is only one thing that makes running across the wide expanse of world (aka nothing) fun, and that is jumping. Thankfully Ni No Kuni delivered, and right on time as I was starting to wonder if I had lost the jump button.
Puzzles and Dragons is celebrating its one year Anniversary with God Fest! For anyone as Puzzle and Dragons
obsessed devoted as me, today is the day to spend some of those magic coins and get a few extra pulls on the rare egg machine, because the drop rate on Gods has been increased. But only for today, as God Fest ends on March 1st. Almost makes me want to go buy some magic coins.
My first pull of the day resulted in Venus (love her crazy skill!) —–>
Since I am of the ‘stop while ahead’ mindset, I haven’t tried again. Will probably try again later, once I’m sure my ‘already pulled one God’ karma has worn off. =P
Anyone else pull something fun?
The original Super Mario Bros was a seminal game. Not only did it spawn a legion of sequels, but it also catapulted the Mario franchise into the stratosphere in terms of popularity. It also happened to be the inception of my (and many others) life long Mario habit and still holds a very special place in my heart.
And though I’ve played many of the sequels, most of them diverged wildly from the original, expanding the world of Mario in many new and interesting directions.
All good things, but it does make me appreciate Super Mario 3D Land, as few games have evoked as much nostalgia for the original. 3D Land managed to capture the simplicity of the original Mario, with straightforward and short, yet interesting and challenging levels, simple graphics and minimalist backgrounds. But like all great sequels/remakes, Super Mario 3D Land doesn’t forget about progress and includes many of the features found in modern Mario games.
I swore I wouldn’t play this game. All the months that my husband and friends have been obsessively playing and urging me to hop on the bandwagon, I have held strong. No, I said, I’m already collecting battle pets in World of Warcraft, I said, I didn’t want another distraction on my phone, I said.
But curiosity has this way of creeping in and making me pliable. My husband, sensing weakness, pounced! He pushed the iPad in front of me, game installed and ready for me to register a new account. Just try it, he said, and smiled his most winsome smile, its not on your phone, he said. How could I refuse?
I’ve been playing ever since (I cant stop!!) Come play the crack with us, they said, you will really really like it, they said. Damn them for being right. (I had to take various P&D interludes while writing this blurb, for research, purely research!)
Thankfully, limiting the game to the iPad was really quite brilliant, as it certainly has managed to curtail my tendency to overindulge.
For those of you who will heed my warning, for this is certainly a cautionary tale, be strong! Puzzles and Dragons will eat your soul!
To the rest, here is my friend ID (tfgamer is the account name). Friend me up and send me a note to let me know your account name so I can be sure to add you! =D
Oh and here are some really good websites to get great information.

Come build super dungeon squashing power teams with me! =D
This must have been an incredibly difficult game to make. What a challenge to create a sequel to Diablo and Diablo 2, two of the most influential Action RPGs of our time. I do not envy them this task; especially considering the original development team was let go. It seems a rather unfair burden to place on an entirely new team.
No wonder the game was so long in development. Between the team changes and the restarts this caused, they probably could have released three games. But then this is Blizzard, which is notoriously slow; two is probably a better estimate. All things considered, I think the team did an incredible job. They released a fairly polished product after all; I just don’t think they made a Diablo Game.
I always try to do the whole new years resolution thing, but find, like most people, that I simply don’t manage. Mostly old habits are hard to overcome, but its also the time of year. Why is it so crazy after new year? Didn’t we just leave the crazy Winter Holiday time behind?
Well, I can say for certain that the whole stomach flu put a wrench in things and now my whole life is about a week behind. Thankfully I’m feeling all better. Now to find motivation. Isn’t that always the thing, finding motivation. Thus failed resolutions are the norm.
My usual resolution for TFG is to do more reviews and this year is really no different. Looking at my to be reviewed list, it occurs to me that maybe its time to change the name of this blog to ‘games I played last year’ since my delay time seems to run about a year. But those changes also require motivation. (Ha!) But a by line is easy to change.
Thus I shall continue onward in my quest to find motivation and finish all those darn reviews. (Double HA!)
I leave you with this awesome video of Mindstorm genius (LEGO!) Watch it! http://youtu.be/QwGM-DxJwTg
