Adventures in Wonder Trading, Part One

So, after many years, I finally managed to get my 3DS to connect to the WiFi. Being a major fan of the Pokémon series, I sought to take advatange of finally getting online to take part in game on stuff like trading and battling Pokémon online. As it turned out, I was very quickly distracted by the Wonder Trade facility, where you can stick up a Pokémon for trade, and the game matches you up with another player online completely at random, with no idea of what you’re going to get.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon (3DS)

After the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon in 2016, they were followed up by, somewhat controversially, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in November 2017. Although these games are standalone games in the 7th Generation, they have faced claims that they are the ‘finished’ versions of the original Sun and Moon, and were released as enhanced version as a quick cash cow.

Which I admit now, I found somewhat difficult to do, as I didn’t think much of the Sun/Moon OST was that standout, compared to earlier games.

Silver Creek Falls: Chapter 1 (PC)

Silver Creek Falls originally caught my eye when I was looking around for newer RPG Maker titles, and I found this one… which promised to be an RPG Maker game, without the fighting. Instead, it offered a game more driven by story, focussing on a town with a series of grisly murders being committed. As the game was free, I decided, why not, and went for something slightly different to what I usually play. So far, this is Chapter 1, with two more chapters to follow – Chapter 2 has been released, and Chapter 3 is on its way.

Early Access Review: Samphi (PC)

I would like to point out that I did receive a Steam Key for the press version from the developer for the purposes of reviewing this game. The game is still in development, so things may change from this review.

Many thanks to Dale of Greeny Games Studio for providing me with the key.
