Fun times

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

It’s been a busy time for the Crummysocks network of sites:

Over at Pro Tip of the Day we’ve had some pretty interesting tips including my personal technique for mashing buttons faster, and a way to play the SNES Civilization that borderlines on cheating.

Rejected Screens got a ton of new screens, particularly from the Super NES version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. I just can’t help myself, I really like that game.

On the game-playing front, I’ve finally gotten around to opening my copy of Final Fantasy VI Advance, which I bought back in ’07. The retranslation definitely changes the tone of a few of the scenes in the game, so it’s definitely worth it to play through for the thousand-and-first time.

I’ve also been slogging through Tales of Vesperia for the Xbox 360. I was pretty jazzed because I really liked the two Tales of Symphonia games but it’s been tough going, and I’m not really sure why. All of the pieces that I liked from the other games are there, but something just hasn’t ‘clicked’ for me yet. I’ll probably end up working though it all anyway, because I’m invested in it now, but it’s going to take some time. Probably even longer now that we have a remake of Turtles in Time coming down the pike.
