Bravely Default – Sorta Review

131 hours, 3 minutes and 42 seconds. That is my clear time for Bravely Default. Granted, I did some faffing about, grinding in places I didn’t need to (and that weren’t optimal), went for both endings, and occasionally leaving the 3DS on while going to do other things. Even so…

How do I condense everything about this game into one post? It runs the risk of either becoming too condensated, or exceptionally long. Yet I feel like I need to try.

As always, I have to rely on Google Image Search for screenshots, since it’s a 3DS title, and I don’t have a capture device for that.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds – Sorta Review

I’ve been playing a lot of 3DS over the past months, haven’t I? Blimey. I will admit I do not keep up with gaming news as much as I used to, but I had heard about A Link Between Worlds. Enough to look forward to it, certainly.


As usual I’ve gotten the images for this through Google Image Search, because I do not have a 3DS Capture thingy.

I downloaded the game from the e-shop, which actually took me under an hour, and while I had heard something about it being set in the same world as A Link To The Past, I wasn’t quite prepared for it.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Sorta Review 3DS

Thanks to the marvels of modern shipping, I was able to get my copy of Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (heretofore referred to as Batman Blackgate) a tad early and I’ve been giving it quite the bash over the weekend.

I am brooding over here!

Now, I don’t own any sort of device that lets me screen-capture from a 3DS, nor did I feel like snapping images with my smartphone, so I’ll simply be borrowing a few images via the magic of Google Image Search.

I also do not know what the differences from the Vita version are, if any. With that said, I’ll just go ahead and let you know what I thought of Armature Studio’s version of Batman.

Fire Emblem: Awakening – Sorta Review

One of my obsessions during my absence from the blog has been the new Fire Emblem: Awakening for the 3DS.

RAAWWWRR- hey, you're going the wrong way there.

Getting a copy was not as easy as I had hoped. Norway was woefully under-supplied, apparently because no one had anticipated the demand, according to shop people. Still, I found one eventually. In a toy store of all things. This article will be light on pictures, because I am not professional (or unprofessional) enough to start photographing my 3DS. So I just nicked a few shots from Google Image Search. My apologies to those affected.
