Think I'm done with Conquest for now. I enjoyed it while things were fresh, but now that I'm in the post-ending scenarios, these uninspired bits of playtime-extension just ain't doin' it for me. Difficulty is still a joke, the AI still hasn't improved at all, Dragon-types break the game if ya get one early in any scenario (many times, you can... quite easily), and the areas of battle have gotten old. Doesn't help that some scenarios are literally recycled and made into another.
I can't really see why Conquest got some of its highest rated reviews, as a simplified strategy game defeats the purpose of a strategy game.
Beat my evil karma play through of Infamous Second Son. F*** evil Delsin. He's a dick. I like hero Delsin way better.

Spoiler Alert!Hero Delsin doesn't frickin kill his own entire tribe/family in the end.
TSW is an interesting game. MMO with a modern setting as well as a strong conspiracy/supernatural influence. I joined the Templar faction, who I swear was directly influenced by the Assassin's Creed rendition of them. Currently running around in an Innsmouth-esque town populated by zombies and a few survivors. The quests are actually interesting and fun.
I recently got Pokemon Battle Trozei, and it's a lot of fun. I've never played the first Trozei game, so it's completely new to me. I like how distributed the Pokemon are, since you always feel motivated to play the levels for Pokemon like Charizard to Darkrai. The Pokemon that nobody really cares about are usually mooks in the levels, while the popular ones (or major ones) are the level bosses, which is good since I don't want to play levels for Pokemon I hate or don"t care about. The character's portraits are adorable and well done. I also like how you can take Pokemon that you caught with you into levels to give yourself a type (dis)advantage. There's also local co-op in the game, where you can team up with a friend to play through the levels, and the Pokemon that are caught get unlocked in both games. It's a shame there's no online, but it's better than nothing. I do have a couple of complaints however. First, the Streetpass feature is nearly useless. All it does is record who Streetpassed you, and what their play records are. Second, some Pokemon look really similar in their portraits, so matching them up to clear them gets really annoying. I know that the developers probably did some of this intentionally, but it's still an annoyance nonetheless. The game is definitely worth getting seeing how it's only $8 on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
