Advance Twisted Solace

advance-twisted-solace

A few days after I gave my thoughts on Evil Dead: Regeneration in my Now Playing: October 2015, I ended up finishing the game. My thoughts haven’t changed so you can read them at the link provided.

Onto another game I wanted to play and it was Advance Guardian Heroes on the Game Boy Advance. It’s a Treasure developed beat-’em-up in the same series as the Saturn classic Guardian Heroes. Unlike that game, Advance Guardian Heroes gets a bad rap and I never knew exactly why.

Once I played and finished it I figured it might be due to the different times throughout the game where the framerate takes a big hit. Trust me when I say that this isn’t as big of a deal as it may seem. I’m sure it’ll bug some gamers to no end, but those people are going to be few and far between.

I played on Easy and built my characters stats in a style of a “glass cannon.” It was all about the damage for me. If you want a considerably higher challenge, then I suggest you play on Normal or higher. I played purely for enjoyment and you may want more than the simple, easy-going satisfying experience I had.

Moving on I tested out the new poll feature on Twitter and I asked what other game I should play. The original PS1 Twisted Metal was the winner. I doubt I’ll get very far in it, but I’ll give it a shot. I also have Quantum of Solace on tap and ready to go after seeing Spectre earlier this week. It’s the version on PlayStation 2 which is a 3rd person shooter and not in 1st person like its counterpart on PS3/X360 is.
