Two years ago we moved out of a house we were renting and into a house we bought with our own money dollars. For the most part, I considered this moving up in the world, save for one thing: we managed accidentally to put our DS Lite into a box we donated to Goodwill. And with it went all of our games, and perhaps more importantly, our saves. At least, that's what I thought had happened. A couple months ago my wife was rummaging through the garage and found the DS again! The most exciting part of this was rejoining my copy of The World Ends With You
and my save game in which I'd just started my second playthrough.
Now that I'm playing it again, I want to gush about it. I want to gush so much it'll make you sick. I'm now going to claim this is hands-down the best DS game ever made, at least in its genre, which is... er... action RPG, I guess? The closest comparison is probably to Pokemans. If you try to dispute my claim, I'll call you a fanboy, in the usual internet fashion. After all, there are such things as wrong opinions, right? I heard that once.
There are so many aspects and elements to this game that are amazing, I'm just going to run through many of them. A survey, if you will. Not the kind you fill out, but the type that fills you
out. You know, broadens your horizons.
I'm also going to keep this basically spoiler-free, since not many people have played this, but everybody should
. If I show characters or dialogue, I've been careful to show them without any particularly revealing context. Finally, please excuse my bad camera-work and image editing skills.
Well, I hope I've convinced you to try this, or at least piqued your interest to seek it out. It might be a little hard to find, but if you can, it's well worth it. If you do have it, I hope we can meet up at PAX next year and play some Tin Pin Slammer. Slam On!
