NOCTURNE OF SHADOWS

Art, music, nature, hauntology, nostalgia, enigma, dreams, fantasy, emotion, philosophy, beauty, juxtaposition poetry, literature, films, reviews, rantings, and other weird various ramblings of a faux-Gothic twenty year old.

I just picked up Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon for the Wii today. I was surprised GameStop had it, but of course I was quite glad. I was also going to get Last Story too, but I decided to hold off because aside from having Fragile Dreams to play, I still need to beat Xenoblade Chronicles. I’ll probably pick it up tomorrow, or maybe even Ocarina of Time for the 3DS or something else.

Anyway, this looks like a really amazing game. The controls aren’t the best, but the atmosphere and emotional impact from what I have played so far really make up for everything else. Brilliantly dreamy and melancholic, full of great music and places to explore, fascinating designs, and much more. If you’re ever in need of a great Wii title, I highly suggest looking into this. Bonus points for having English and Japanese audio options, and even more bonus points for actually having nice English dubs, especially with Seto.

On a related note, the Wii is my favorite current generation console. I just feel like people don’t give it anywhere near enough credit as they should. Not just because there are a lot of great games on it, but because it’s actually innovative and fun. People complained about the graphics on the Wii and the hardware saying that just because it’s not as advanced as the PS3 and Xbox, then it’s not proper to label it as current gen. That’s ridiculous because in my opinion, the whole point of new consoles is innovation, and that’s what Nintendo did. They shine when they do new things. I’m really looking forward to the Wii U as well, especially for a new Zelda game!
