I won the game back in June from here and have played enough for my review.

I've got to start by saying thanks again to Gouki.com for making me Jimmy of the Month back in June and hooking me up with another great game.  This time around was even better.  Not only did I get the copy of Final Fantasy Tactics  A2 Grimoire of the Rift for this review, but I also have a copy of Dead or Alive 5 coming.

This review has taken me forever for a few reasons.  The first is that I'm not that big of a fan of the Nintendo DS, so it's my son's system I played it on.  If it was on a real system this would have been done a long time ago.

If you have ever played any of the Final Fantasy Tactics games you know that they are incredible.  You can spend countless hours building a clan and doing all kinds of side quests.  You have a few characters that have to join your team and and endless supply of others that you can recruit if you want.

The story is that you are a kid who ends up sucked into Ivalice through a magic book.  Sounds pretty familiar.  He crash lands in the middle of a battle so you are forced to join the clan to survive.  You have to battle your way around to fill the magic book (grimoire) to find your way back home.  You encounter some odd characters as you play and there is a ton of time put on they main story.  And even after you finish it you can keep going.  You actually have to if you want to collect all the unique characters, such as Vann and Penelo.  And in the above picture you see the Seeq from Final Fantasy 12 I think and they are playable for the first time.  The Gria are entirely new.  

And if you have never played any of the Tactics games I should tell you it's a turn based RPG and you move across grids, think checkers.  The stages you play in aren't exactly ground breaking but the are rendered pretty nicely.  The music is also pretty standard and repetitive.  There is no voice acting so be ready for a lot of reading, or skipping text if that's your thing.  I've put in over 40 hours at this point and am still running around doing side quests so I'm not let down at all by the game.

And my son loved the bonus.

Gouki Update & Jimmy of the Month May Winner

By: goukijones May 31, 2012 | 4 Comments

Quick update on the current status & future of Gouki.com. If you live near Las Vegas, get hype for Vegas Violence. That's all I'm gonna say about that. Where has GoukiJones been? Diablo? Dragon's Dogma? Who is the Jimmy of the month for may? Crimson Relic?

Triple Review! lol. You guys have got to read the pending stories sometimes. 

First of all, let me apologize for my lack of contributions this past week. Diablo 3 has been PWNn my brain. Also there's been some Dragon's Dogma and Halo Wars of course. Diablo 3 is great, I love everything about. Except when it's offline. Unfortunately I don't play with other people that much and I think I'm starting to get bored with the solo game. I've beat Diablo himself twice now, with 2 different characters and well, uhhhhh ... Now I'm starting over and it's still the same shit. Nobody to show my characters off to. 

Dragon's Dogma is certainly cool so far, but I haven't played it that much. I've probably still played more Halo Wars this last week than Dragon's Dogma. Dragon's Dogma just has really bad timing right now. I'll probably give a serious go sometime during the summer. Because it looks like nothing is coming out until Darksiders II is released. 

There will be some updates to Gouki later this year. Like the profiles and the catalog pages, but for now we're focused on E3 and a lot on DropTheBelt.com. And Vegas Violence, but we're not talking about that yet. lol. If you have any suggestions for Gouki.com please leave a comment. 1 thing though ... Don't be a Jimmy!

Now for the Jimmy of the Month announcement.

Crimson Relic
