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: 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: Star Ocean: The Last Hope International
Console: PS3
Genre: Action RPG
Language: Japanese/English audio, multi-language text
Company: Square Enix/tri-Ace
Summary: The least favorite of the RPGs I’ve played on the PS3 right now. I can’t see why someone could be so obsessed about this game to buy four copies of it for the sake of the collection (the two Xbox versions and the two PS3 versions). Right now, I’m just glad I waited to spend only $30 including shipping on this game instead of $50-55 as it is usually priced as of this post. Eternal Sonata is the same price ($30) REGULARLY and MUCH more worth the money imo. FF13 and Vesperia were in the 50’s price range and worth it. In the end, I traded the game back in and lost 8 bucks and some 18 hours of gameplay time, since I can’t see myself finding any value in keeping it anyway.
