Captain's Log

SPOILERS for Heavy Rain and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons to follow. To hell with "statute of limitations" if you haven't played a game before, you haven't played it.

Hey hey, one more Captain's Log. Still plugging away at both Oracle of Seasons and Heavy Rain. Plus, I managed to procure Club Nintendo codes for both Shin Megami Tesei IV and Fire Emblem: Awakening, so I got my $30 eShop card. Putting that to use to get Shantae, SteamWorld Dig, Fluidity: Spin Cycle, and


Just got to the seventh dungeon in OoS. Still loving it. I can't recommend it enough for fans of Link's Awakening. Basically more of the same game, just less weird. My main issue with Seasons is that there's no real sense of urgency like there was in Ages. Messing with the seasons just doesn't seem like as big a deal as messing with the time line. That, combined with the fact that Onox is really a non-entity, makes me less interested in the overall story. I just want to beat the game to get to the Ganon confrontation at the end. I'm not sure if the story plays out differently if you don't link your games, but it does suffer as a result of all the Twinrova interludes.

Heavy Rain is also progressing nicely. I'm nearing the end of the game, or so I think. We just learned about the drowning of John thirty years ago and then the connection to the Kramer family. Lots if twists here, and I really have no idea who the Origami Killer is. I still think it's Ethan, but I guess I'll find out when I finish the game. Still not loving this game, but at least it's helped me learn where the square and circle are on the controller.


Somethingly yours,
