Title: Danball Senki Wars ダンボール戦機ウォーズ
Platform: 3DS
Genre: Strategy + Action RPG
Language: Japanese
Company: Level-5, tri-Ace (development)
Summary: Bummed about the one month delay… Was fine waiting for it.
I will also be forever bummed that they’ve moved off the Vita altogether. 3DS graphics are so inferior to it.
But yeah… my bottom line if the rest of the review is tl;dr… DANBALL SENKI AND DANBALL SENKI W ARE BETTER.

Title: Ni no Kuni
Platform: PSP
Genre: Monster raising, RPG
Language: Japanese
Company: Bandai Namco
Summary: It took me a long time to realize, but the fact that they’re releasing the game internationally under the Japanese title instead of something like “Kingdom of Ni” is stating something in itself. Dual audio, I am ready for you.

I’ve beaten the game at under 35 hours, including a lot of sidetracking for doing as many sidequests I could do without going too far out of my way just to complete the sidequest list.

Title: Danball Senki W (ダンボール戦機W)
Console: PSP
Genre: Action RPG
Language: Japanese
Company: Level-5 (with development by Tri-Ace)
Summary: Cleared the Vita version, screenshots up! Also cleared the Ranking Battle on Vita. Details in the review.
Cleared the game on the PSP before I started the Vita version (in less than 30 hours)! Lots of screenshots and stuff up. My Vita version finally arrived on November 6 (and congrats Obama!! What a memorable day).

Grinding on this game post-story is a whole ton easier than Boost, which is GREAT. I finally can actually get characters and parts to level 200 without playing hundreds of ridiculous hours.

Just to clear things up early on, and I cannot stress this enough:
PLAY DANBALL SENKI BOOST (or Baku Boost) BEFORE PLAYING THIS GAME. Even if you’ve watched the anime, you should still play the original game first. The original game experience is unique in itself. I dare say the experience of the original game is just better overall at this point, even if W has lots of great new features to it.

Title: Mobile Suit Gundam AGE: Cosmic Drive 機動戦士ガンダムAGE コズミックドライブ
Platform: PSP
Genre: Action RPG
Language: Japanese
Company: Bandai Namco / LEVEL-5
Summary: I’m comparing this game to Danball Senki like a sore thumb because it just has to be done.

Let me say this upfront: Danball Senki/Boost > this game
This game has a few interface improvements, but for a better experience in all aspects in general, go with Danball Senki.
In all seriousness, just from the sales, Gundam Age hardly sold 36k its first week, compared with Danball Senki Baku Boost which did almost 56k, and that’s just a port (not to mention there were 2 releases of the same game on the PSP which had pretty far more amazing sales for a pilot title). Of course, sales can only say so much. Play and compare both games yourself if you think I’m being overly biased.


Ignore the 2010 date, I saw that afterwards and then fixed it on my PSP. XD

But yeah, beat it in less than 13 hours. Someone doing a crazy rush play and skipping all the dialogue/cutscenes should easily be able to do it in less than 10, maybe 5 hours ._.

Like I mentioned earlier, it’s got a few mechanical improvements I’d like to see in the upcoming Danball Senki W game as well (direction pad + L + R also allowed for text scrolling [this was implemented], instant map moving with the Select button, can skip all dialogue screens and not just pre-rendered cutscenes, customizing reserved players without having to change teams), but otherwise it’s just WAY TOO SIMILAR. 8|

From my understanding, the only difference between this and Universe Accel is that Universe Accel has a lot of the older “classic” Gundam series as exclusives, while Cosmic Drive has the more ikemen ones (Wing, SEED, 00). Someone feel free to tell me if there’s more to it. Because otherwise I’m not touching Universe Accel, this game hasn’t interested me enough to do more than one playthrough. XD

Title: Time Travelers タイムトラベラーズ
Platform: PSP
Genre: Adventure, Visual Novel (I dare make up a genre of Interactive Cinema, because the entire game is made up of motion cut-scenes)
Language: Japanese
Company: LEVEL-5
Summary: There’s never a dull moment in this game, and I LIKE it.

I imagine myself replaying this in 5 or so years and enjoying it just as much as I did the first time.

Title: Inazuma Eleven GO Dark/Shine イナズマイレブンGO シャイン ダーク
Console: 3DS
Genre: Super-dimensional soccer RPG
Language: Japanese
Company: LEVEL-5
Summary:
3/5/11: I’ve cleared both Shine/Dark, unlocked Team Zero and have recruited just about everyone I want on Shine except for just a couple game-only characters. At around 90 hours of gameplay and I have 3 completely different teams at or almost at lvl 99. Not bad~

Random rantings/SLIGHT (extremely vague) SPOILERS under the cut until I get things organized (I refuse to post any heavy spoilers from beyond the anime, since you should go enjoy the game yourself if you want that.)
