Yongsan Electronic District(Gamer Edition)

So,first things first.

Hello my name is BlerdLikeMe and I’m a casual gamer.

Mostly a Nintendo girl,being that my Nintendo 3ds is the only system I currently have, what can I say,I started out with a Nintendo.So let’s say that you’re in Korea ,and you want to play some video games,you brought your system,and you have like three RPG’s that you just beaten and now you’re bored.I would certainly suggest you come here.This is the perfect place for you,  Yongsan Electronic District’s- gaming area(this station is on line 1 and the Jungang line in Seoul).

Let’s go inside.

First off let’s say t hat you’re a nostalgic gamer.You can buy you a nice shiny brand new or used Game Boy Color,and the ridiculous amount of games they have for every system,yeah starting from Nintendo to the current systems,with everything in between from consoles to  handheld.

Marvel at old Mario games.

Or you know, see if they’ll sell their virtual boy.

Ok, I just realize, that I don’t have a lot of pictures of PS4 and X-Box 1 games,because well I don’t have them(though if I had the money I would so buy a PS4,but I don’t so…..) so I totally didn’t think about taking pictures of those booths.Mainly because I just went their to search for Amiibos, .Also one thing you have to realize is that sad fact that many systems have region locked games… I’ve bought multiple Japanese video games here, because the DS’s aren’t region locked.But some booths do have US games… for some reason.Anyway it’s just fun to see so many vendors selling so many games,it’s like a Mega GamesStop. It could take from 30 minutes to an hour if you spend time looking at diversity of games,and the figurines.And if you find a booth that you like it could take much longer.

Let’s say you’re an anime fan.

There are enough figurines to keep you happy forever,there are multiple booths that just sell anime  figurines.I assure you I will be going  back for that Tachikoma(there’s something awesome about Ghost in a Shell) and possibly that Jack Skeleton figurine in the picture below.

Happy Shopping and Merry Christmas,

Gamer Vault:二ノ国 漆黒の魔導士Ninokuni:Shikkoku no Madoushi 二ノ国 (part 1)

So I was thinking, I really want to catch up on some old games I missed out on from when I didn’t have a console(or games I just somehow missed out on). I’ve been eyeing this game for the past year,so I though if I have to choose any game,this would be the first one on my list.Why you ask, what could make this ‘old’ game so awesome?

Two words.

Studio Ghibli

You know that studio in Japan  who made Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro,Howl’s Movinng Castle,Ponyo,The Cat returns ,Princess Mononoke(I could go on,but …. )

This game is made by Level-5 and it has all of it’s cut scenes(most) drawn by Studio Ghibli, yes I don’t think I need to say that much more.The PlayStation version does have more content,and a better battle system,but for now with all my traveling and living abroad I only have my Nintedo 3ds.The cool thing is, the games though very similar, aren’t actually the same,the production work for the games was done separately, so I will some day get the other one as well,I look forward to it’s battle system. There’s only one downside for me with this game for me.It’s in Japanese….Yes I did realize that was the case when I bough…..but… but it’s OK, I studies Japanese in college,so I am around … ….. a beginner level in Japanese(LOL high level yes still beginner).You’re probably wondered why this game was never localized.This is why.

This is the spell-book, it’s called the Wizards Companion,and it comes with the original game,being that our main character Oliver is a wizard ,this gives you information on how to draw spells,and a full list of familiars you can ‘catch’ to have fight for/with you.And at the time,they have no intentions of translating it. Originally that is, but if you buy the deluxe wizard edition the  of the game it comes with the Wizards Companion,a NinoKuni PS3 and the game, all for the low low price of  $350,but my main problem with that is, I don’t have that kind of money.I only spent $25 for all of this(It was on sale thank you Play-Asia).

IMG_6660   IMG_6662  IMG_6663

The English Wizards Companion cost about $100 separately, I would much rather improve my Japanese rather than buy the translation version of a book I’ve already bought.Also there is the fact that this book is $100 whereas I only paid $25 for the game.

 

But anyway it’s time for lunch,sincerely yours
