Last week I found myself going to a restaurant in a part of town I typically don’t go to since it is out of the way. While on my way there, I remembered that there was a GameStop just a few blocks away. So after having brunch with my grandparents, I decided to stop over there just to see what used games their store had that mine didn’t.
I browsed around a bit since it was during the “Buy 2 Used Game, Get 1 Free” sale. I picked up Death, Jr. for the PSP, Trace Memory for the DS, and some PS2 game called Vampire Night.
Vampire Night was one of those “meh I’m not too sure about this…” games. One of the regular customers up at my store had talked about it before, saying it was a fairly fun GunCon game. I figured it since it was free, I’d give it a try. (Though I haven’t played it yet…)
Trace Memory, on the other hand, was one of the DS that had my interest when I first got my DS, but I never went out and got it. The other night I decided to give it a try. Well, it’s not the best game I’ve played and its age shows, but I was surprised by how fun it actually was. The puzzles themselves haven’t proven hard enough to get me frustrated or stuck yet figuring out the order in which to do things to progress to the next level makes me feel intelligent when I figure it out.
Also, the story is actually kind of interesting. Sure, the dialogue is pretty cheesy…but I like the idea of running into a ghost begging you to recover his memories so he can rest in peace by knowing about his life.
I’m really enjoying it and am wondering why I waited so long to get it. So what about you guys?
