Okay, so I bought myself Final Fantasy X, however I kinda only play it two days a week. The main video game I am indulging in is Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of The Starry Skies for the Nintendo DS.The Plot

You are an apprentice angel, defending mortals that live in Angel Falls from fiends. You are then promoted to Angel due to raising your first benevolence. However, this only lasts a very short time. Later on you lose your status as an angel and find yourself crashing down back to earth as a mere mortal. With the help of your sidekick and friends, will you ever become an angel again?


I have only played 8 hours of it so far, and it is a really good game. The RPG element is kept as simple as possible, so that younger generations can easily pick it up and play. It has a basic leveling up system, with the only choices you have is advancing in a specific skill or your class main ability. This simplicity however makes it a joy to play. You also have access to a boatload of clothes and armour to find, buy, steal or make.

The best way to level up on this game is to battle Metal Slimes, which are easy to beat. However, they do tend to flee a lot and are quite rare.

The graphics are beautiful and the characters are varied and not as in-depth than Final Fantasy, the party you’re in consists of either other players or characters you design and make. Though, they never give to the story, only support you during battle.


If your new to RPGs, then get this game. If you want an RPG with co-op abilities get this game. There is no reason not to play it. Anyway I’m just going to do battle with more of those silver slimes.
