Happy New Year 2'17

Hey guys. It's been a while since my last update. Sadly, I had to slow down with purchases quite a bit this year, even though I still added a lot of stuff to the collection. I expect to make another big update within the next week. Thankfully, this year 2016 was better than 2014 and 2015 combined. Those two were a disgrace to. Still, saying 2016 was better isn't saying much either because it also wasn't that good... 2017 hasn't even started here and I still don't sense any short term improvements but, hopefully, I'll be able to do something to change things for the best.

I have a lot of personal projects on my mind, from small things to bigger, more important goals. I expect to accomplish them all in 2017. It's going to be a tiresome and challenging year with a lot of things to do but I'm happy about it.

Happy New Year 2017 everyone :)

Shooting girls... not literally though...

Just.. wow. Japanese developers can come up with such incredible and perverted ideas. A rail shooter game where the objective is to aim at girls with some weird pheromone shots that drive them crazy. Weird and innovative at the same time. And this limited version of the game, named Gal*Gun Double Peace Mr. Happiness Edition, will certain increase in value in the future. It comes in a huge box with several items, including some panties that are, in fact, a screen cleaning wipe... Too bad the items are all bundled together without any insert, which is nothing but bad design :(

I am amazed games like this are being released by European publishers with limited editions. I know I have already talked about this before, but I truly am amazed!

My honest opinion about Pokémon Go.

Even though my financial situation and life in general is very inopportune to continue to collect videogames for now, I still have been buying several editions and games that I certainly don't want to miss. Unfortunately, sacrifices had to be done and I can't keep up the pace like the last few years...

I have been dedicating my spare time into playing Pokémon Go. When it was first announced, I didn't really expect to play it. But the truth is, I gave it a try and found it very addicting, especially when almost everyone else around me is playing the game.

Thanks to this app in particular, I met new areas in the place I live at that I have not visited in many, many years, even though they are just half an hour a walk from my home. Some of those areas improved quite a bit, while others are still a cancer and I don't know why people even buy houses there... I have also been going out with friends almost every night to some stops with lures and rare spawns and I was impressed to see how many people were playing the game. Absolutely crazy! But the hype is almost gone by now. Mostly thanks to Niantic. I'll just skip the server problems from the beginning and focus on the game alone...

At first, any new catch was a good catch. Since I didn't have that many Pokémon in the beginning, whenever I saw something new as a shadow on the radar I got excited and did my best to figure out its location. With the footsteps tracking system, things were interesting, but still, some rare evolved Pokémon were nearly impossible to find. I walked everywhere in every direction and still couldn't find them. Then again, I live in an area where not a single pokémon spawned on my street. 75% of the good spanws that showed up on the radar while I was at home were all at the other side of the rail road, which I can't cross without walking at least 700 meters. At that point, all spawns are surely gone. People who live in rural areas or places with little stops will definitely not enjoy the game as they should, sadly.

Suddenly, the radar became completely bugged, with the tracking system stuck with 3 footsteps, showing creatures that weren't even there or had already despawned. Some apps and tracking websites popped up at this point and they helped quite a bit! Without a tracking system, wandering around uselessly killed all the fun.

Then Niantic took one step further into killing all the fun and removed the steps while banning Pokévision, the best tracker ever created for this game. The game became useless, unless you liked to sit and wait for pokémon to pop up in lures, something I hate to do. I like to walk around, collect pokéstops and find all sorts of creatures in the run. But, again, the random factor with spawns and only a few minutes to catch them make this game boring to play because I can't find nothing new. Eventually, the tracking system was slightly corrected and now it's more accurate, but still not enough.

The thing I like the most in any pokemón game is to actually catch them all. Not just building a strong team to use in battles, but to actually own a livedex. I'm a collector and a completionist when it comes to these little monsters. I still managed to get over 130 pokémon on my dex, but the few ones missing made the game pointless to play. First, you have the continent exclusives, that CAN be born in your local eggs unlike everyone else says (I have witnessed this, twice), but they are a major pain to get.  And then the events... Events that may eventually take away your spare time in bad moments, that may not guarantee a catch and probably will make you chose which legendary you may and may not catch. Chances are... getting them all will require way more efforts than it should.

Right now I need to walk a ton of km just to find a new Pokémon or a rare one that I need in order to get more candies. All I find are Pokémon I no longer need, including rare spawns that I already have. Everything I'm getting from eggs are things I already have and most of which are crap even if they have good CP or IVs. 10km eggs take a long time to hatch and I still didn't get anything I'm missing from those, such as Chansey or Lapras... This becomes very tiresome. The candy system is completely unnecessary too. Why do I need to find a sh!t tone of abras and grimers that hardly ever spawn over here just to evolve them? I don't know how many hours it took me to find a grimer and I never managed to find more than three, so I'm stuck at about 10 candies . Shouldn't pokémon evolve by gaining exp when fighting other trainers or gym battles? Or even wild pokémon? This makes no sense to me. After playing for such a long time and walking about 300 km, I realized this game is just pointless. At least in the games you can properly evolve and train your pokémon, transfer them to future games and always use them. I feel there's a lot more meaning into playing the games due to their complexity than this. So, as a result, I completely stopped playing Pokémon Go and went back to Omega Ruby, trying to accomplish my goals of having a near perfect live dex.

What's a perfect live dex to me, you ask? Well, my personal objective is to have one of every single creature with at least 5IV (none being 0) and its hidden ability in both male and female versions. The hidden ability is just a bonus goal I've established. Obviously, not all pokemon have their HA already available and legends cannot be bred, so there are exceptions to this. This requires a lot of breeding and some strategy. I'm not concerned about egg moves or hidden power, nor the 6th imperfect IV being important or not. I've also decided to ignore the nature of the pokémon because I want varied natures. I'm not making a perfect, battle ready live dex with the necessary requirements and moves, just a live dex with great pokemon. For battle purposes I'll have my specific team of six where all these details already matter.

Catching pokémon in the real life was amazingly fun in the beginning, but not anymore. Especially when you realize this game is flawed in so many ways and Niantic or whoever's responsible is doing a horrible job at handling the app properly. The fun disappears when you can't progress in your main objective, which is simply to catch them all. On top of it, you see a lot of potential in the app, but you realzie that Niantic is not making anything about it.

Sack creatures everywhere

This is yet another press kit I was able to score not too long ago. I have not played Little Big Planet in a very long time and I don't know much about what's going on in this game, but I guess I can tell the same about almost every other recent game out there. Not enough patience or time to play, unfortunately... It's always tough to talk about stuff I wasn't able to play, so I just fill these posts with text that doesn't tell anything. Sucks, I know.

This is a type of game that doesn't need presentation. Unfortunately I've missed the Prestige Edition because 1. it was very expensive and 2. my preorder was cancelled by Amazon... So I had to get Dark Souls III Collector's Edition locally...

Amazon used to be the best place to order almost anything, but lately it's been terrible with me, so... I just moved to local stores. Seriously, what the hell? I have been building my collection with awesomeness and thanks to some stupid mistake from a store I miss something as important as the Prestige Edition, which I will probably never own? Disgusting!

I usually don't have the habit of buying both PAL and NTSC versions of the same game. I usually just stick with PAL versions unless the NTSC one is very exclusive and important, but those are just a few exceptions I have in my collection.

However, I was forced to open another exception this time. Xenoblade Chronicles is by far my most favourite JRPG in recent years and I just couldn't resist getting the US version of the newest game.

I can easily tell the game has several flaws, including a few major ones, but even with all those flaws it's still am amazing game and I had a blast playing it. Nowadays, despite still buying a lot of stuff, it's not normal for me to spend over 100 hours in a single videogame. Knowing that I already spent about 170 hours playing this game and plan on returning to it some day again, you can probably tell how much I've liked this game. Too bad the ending sucks though...

And another!

And here's another one from NISA Europe, this time Stella Glow for the Nintendo 3DS. I love these guys, I love these editions and I hope to somehow get the ones I've missed in the future!

NISA Europe Rules!

When I've lost my hopes in getting this edition because I missed the preorders, NISA Europe contacted me to warn about its availability. Those guys from that store are absolutely amazing. It's not every day that you can find such a great costumer service. I am glad they started selling these editions in Europe! The Witch and the Hundred Knight Revival Edition Limited Edition!

Loved it!

It's certainly not one of the best press kits released so far, but it's super original: Tearaway Unfolded Press Kit!  A paper craft Dual Shock controller makes this Tearaway Unfolded press kit something creative. It immediately caught my attention and I really needed to get it. I'm glad I own it now :)

Always hard to let things like this to pass by...

I'm at that point again when it's impossible to keep up with so much stuff being released at the same time, so I have to make decisions and just get what's really important.

Sometimes, however, some unexpected things pop up and it just isn't possible to let those things pass by. Some time ago, I've heard about an extremely limited edition of the videogame Superbeat Xonic in the United States. Sadly, costumers from around the world were not allowed to buy that. The good thing about something you definitely shouldn't be able to get is... you save the money to spend on something else. But then, limited editions and some underground games are always popping up to make you waste your money unexpectedly. That's true for those who have a weak spirit, like me...

And this suddenly appeared in Europe. Superbeat Xonic Limited Edition, individually numbered and limited to 500 pieces only. How could I let this one pass by? I couldn't. Just not possible.

Well this took some time to come out, but it eventually did. Too bad it didn't exactly match the expectations, considering the guy behind this is a respectable name behind some older games. Couldn't miss on preordering it due to the fact that it includes the physical version of the original Wii game.

That epic moment when...

... an epic japanese game gets an epic edition in Europe. I totally missed the first game because I didn't want to spend so much money on its edition. I ended up buying it from scalpers in the end. I thought the same thing could happen with this second game but it seems that I'll probably find it later when the price drops, considering the stupid amount of copies this received...

Just the same game again...

Was it really necessary? This is the 3rd different version of this game in my collection. First was the Wii version which I actually bought on release day and came close to finish it. Then not too long ago I managed to get a GameCube version. Suddenly this pops up in my collection. There really was no need for this... But it's Zelda, so yeah, it's almost mandatory...
