Eleven days into the month I was able to finish Demon’s Souls with a final time of 83 hours. I immediately started New Game+ and was able to finish the game again only this time it took much less time. This makes sense once you know what to do and how to handle the bosses. How much less time? Try four times less at 21 hours! I didn’t get a single new trophy, but I was okay with that since it’s such a wonderful game.
Over the month I helped out SonicHomeboy from time to time in Borderlands. This is a game which I was able to get the Platinum trophy back in February 2010. We also faced off in the PSN version of Tetris. A great version of the game. I was impressed with our ability to last for 5 minutes and 21 seconds playing the Shared variant. This is where two matrix playfields overlap a couple of columns. Communication and cooperation are crucial and I think we did well.
Over the Thanksgiving weekend I went back to the Gradius Collection on PSP. This time I played some of Gradius Gaiden. This was originally a PS1 Japanese only release and didn’t get out to any other region until this collection was released 9 years later in 2006. The best I was able to do was Stage 3 with a score of 113,720.
The final two games were on the Game Boy Advance. Game 1 is the remake of the NES title Kirby’s Adventure going under the name of Kirby: Nightmare In Dream Land. Game 2 is a port of a Super Nintendo port of an arcade game, Final Fight One. These two games are quite different, but the similarity between them is that I finished both bringing my yearly total to 33.
Thanks for reading. That’ll be all.
