  • 2015.08.17: Dragon Quest Heroes
  • 2015.08.26: The Last Remnant
  • 2015.08.26: Star Ocean 4
  • 2015.08.26: Trusty Bell
  • 2015.08.28: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

I got an offer I couldn't refuse on a used PS4. Well, I could have refused it. But that's no fun. So I grabbed a used copy of Dragon Quest Heroes off of Amazon and it's fun. But I want a real Dragon Quest right now.

Free Xbox 360 needs three games that I once owned, never played much, and then sold when I decided that I didn't have the time for gaming as much. But a free 360! So. There we go.

Although I never finished Type-0 on the PSP, when I sold a bunch of bonus game soundtracks and got more money than Type-0 cost, and figured I might even get an unused FF15 demo code. This turned out to be one of the few times I have found a code in box that was already used. I did get a code from a friend, so hey. Everything worked out.

Games I beat in August, 2015

  • 2015.08.08: Rockman X5
  • 2015.08.13: TorqueL
  • 2015.08.27: Metal Gear Solid 4

X5 is probably the most disappointed I have been with the Mega Man series since Mega Man 4. TorqueL was the most frustrated I have been with a game in a decent time as well. Metal Gear Solid 4 was equal parts disappointment and frustration, but there was a huge dash of sentimentality as well. These three are going to get interesting write ups.
