Hi all, its been ages huh? Been busy with lots of VERY IMPORTANT STUFF! Ok fine…I’ve been watching lots and lots of Netflix (Doctor Who, Firefly, 30 Rock, etc…) and doing some reading (Iron Druid Chronicles, John Dies at the End, and some mystery novels). BUT I’ve also been off and on playing this game since late last summer. I’d take it with me when I was camping for those relaxing moments between our exhausting hike and campfire time. Well I just finished the game a few weeks ago and felt compelled to write a review! For some reason for me December is the month I play the most video games! I’m unsure what my next video game will be…I’m thinking Tales of Vesperia because I recently got an XBox 360! Well onto my amateur review! I bought this game on impulse, I saw it had about 20 very enthusiastic reviews on Amazon, and somehow it ended up being one of the few JRPGs (Japanese Role Playing Game) I picked up for the PSP. It’s the 2nd PSP Game I’ve played to completion (Hakuoki being the first). And yes I’m a VERY slow gamer, I can manage to make a 20 hour game last 40 hours, I have a habit of focusing on and exploring aspects of the game that don’t get me to the end quickly. I also have a habit of leveling up higher than I usually need to be in order to beat the next boss. Although this game should supposedly take you around 50 hours (not sure what my time was I accidentally left it on too often to have any grasp of my game time). Well anyway the Plot (Compliments of Amazon):
In the peaceful town of Rolent of the Liberl Kingdom, a young girl named Estelle and her friend Joshua, who had been taken in by her family years earlier, prepare to take their first steps to join the legendary guild of the Bracers. Bracers are considered the peacekeepers and protectors of order that owe allegiance to no country or government. In Liberl their guild has flourished since a brief war some ten years prior after an invasion from the Erebonian Empire to the north, and their efforts have made peace a lasting prospect.
In the course of their journey to become full-fledged Bracers, Estelle and Joshua begin to see the peace threatened by a dark side of the ruling government that plots to overthrow the Liberl queen, Alicia. Together they travel the world on their quest to become Bracers and slowly unravel the truth behind the mastermind who seeks to bring war back to their borders.
