Parasite Eve II Part Three: Vaccine

The shortcut that leads you back to Douglas’ trailer is on the right side of the Water Hole. On the side of the Underpass is a passage to another part of Dryfield where you can do more grinding, if you want. The enemies there are pretty weak, though.

Parasite Eve II Part Two: Epidemic

Aya infiltrated the lab hidden in the mines. I’d like to get my hands on whoever put these automated security systems in there. I also hate these amoeba-looking things. They’re immune to guns, but not to magic. Unfortunately, they can Silence you. Continue reading Parasite Eve II Part Two: Epidemic

VGJ Miscellany: Activision Classics – Retro Sports Pennant


Activision Classics

System: PlayStation

Released: September 30, 1998

Publisher: Activision

Developer: Learning Technologies Interactive

Activision Classics is a collection of 30 Atari 2600 games for the PS1. I remember this anthology getting a critical review in Animerica magazine, the same review that partially inspired me to do retro anthology collections. AC is criticized for its poor emulation of old Atari games on a far more powerful system.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin Final Stats and Thoughts

Originally, I loved this game, despite the gameplay becoming a little exasperating/tiring. I liked the sheer number of battle options better than Persona 3‘s, although I also felt like trimming the fat was a good thing, too. I liked P3‘s characters and story better. The story in P3 feels deeper, and succeeds in reaching for its epic scope. I also wished there was voice acting throughout P2: IS, like P3. You don’t just leave Troy Baker (Eikichi), Patrick Seitz (Nyarlathotep), and Wendee Lee (Maya) lying around!

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin Part Seven: The Wages of Sin

April 27, 2012: Damn, Maya’s father was hot!

Masataka Amano. He’s covered wars, y’know…

Masataka Amano was a war correspondent. Before Maya met the other kids and established the Masked Circle, Masataka prepared to leave Japan to cover a war. Maya made a stuffed rabbit for him and called it Mr. Bunbun, but he refused to take it. Her father told her that if she cried, Mr. Bunbun would laugh at her. Masataka told her that he would accept Mr. Bunbun when he returned home, but he died before he could make it back.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin Part Four

November 8, 2011: Let’s Defeat (?) King Leo

King Leo went on and on about how Nahui-Ollin and the Oracle of Maia had been forgotten. He said that Joker’s face is as beautiful as a goddess. Lisa seemed to suspect that Joker was “Big Sis”.

Long story short: We had to commandeer a blimp and defeat King Leo. He wasn’t even as tough as Ixquic. Continue reading Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin Part Four

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin Part Three

October 15, 2011: I discovered a new Fusion Spell: Heavy Rain!

Fusion Spells were more powerful attacks that could be revealed when you cue up the correct spells/skills.

The animation for that spell is so cute. Pew pew!
