Project X Zone - I ended up enjoying this game a lot more than I expected to...it's almost addicting. The gameplay should, in every right, be repetitive and boring...but it's not. In fact, it's really fun. I honestly wish I played more of the franchises in depth than just .Hack, Devil May Cry, and a few others...but this game REALLY got me interested in other franchises. This is definitely worth checking out if you have a 3DS, especially if you're interested in the included franchises. There are demos on the e-shop if you are interested, I'm pretty sure the second demo just got released.

Gods Eater Burst - "Fast Paced Monster Hunter" is how I always hear the game described. Is it? Well...no and yes. In some ways it's eerily similar to the Capcom titles while in others it makes itself unique (such as organic swords and the like). The game is more story heavy than Monster Hunter, but I would say parallels to MH are shockingly accurate. It doesn't have the polish that MH has, and it can be more...repetitive in a way, but the action is exciting at times and the AI of your teammates is good. However, some of the things feel as if they're copy and pasted, such as some parts of the interface, the behavior of the aragami, and...heck, even the cover. It's not the same game, though, and it certainly isn't a replacement for Monster Hunter (or vice versa). It's an interesting game, still, and I'd recommend playing it, at the very least.

Touhou 8: Imperishable Night - I don't really think I need to say how I feel about this game. For some reason I had my eye on this title...this SPECIFIC one. I don't know why. I ended up marathoning it over and over, realizing that I was actually surviving with ease on parts that before I couldn't possibly manage. So, in a matter of two days I beat Eirin and Kaguya on Normal. I've beaten other traditional Touhou games, but this is the only one that I've unlocked Extra on and beat without using a continue. It's a real sense of accomplishment.
