Game Challenge – Summer 2011

I have to be honest, the idea for a summer game challenge came from another site http://rfgeneration.com/blogs/noiseredux which apparently itself came from another site.  Still, I can’t let the lack of originality prevent me from introducing my own challenge.  Ideally you’re supposed to pick 10 games, however since I don’t think I can have the time for ten games this summer, or the ability to get my hands on ten I would want to play, I will keep the potential roster to what I brought with me to Europe.  Games to beat, in no particular order:

Ys I&II  (PSP)
God of War:  Chains of Olympus  (PSP)
Professor Layton and the Curious Village  (DS)
Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo  (PSP)
9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors  (DS)

That’s the list.  I’ve actually completed most of the Curious Village, but I feel I need something to compel me to finish it.  And Supper Puzzle Fighter II is actually part of a PSP collection I bought for cheap at the Euro equivalent of 7-11.

There is also a pretty good chance I will play Tactics Ogre again, however I will keep this separate.

Strange Empty Feeling After Finishing Tactics Ogre or Why Not Start a Video Game Blog

So I’ve decided to start documenting my experiences with video games, if only to help justify the amount of time I spend playing them as a fully grown adult.  Also I thought there would be many peripheral benefits:  a summer game list, a place to post articles, and an outlet for those moments of nostalgia.  I’m living abroad right now, so my choices of games are limited (specifically what I have for the DS, PSP, and if I decide to consider my iPad and Mac sources), but I will make a list.  Sadly I’ve already finished Tactics Ogre so I won’t include it, and I’m not in a state to try and re-beat the game under the extreme circumstances needed to get all the medals (it will come around, but I need a break for the moment).
