11:52 am - what
PUZZLE QUEST: Hey, Spatch.

SPATCH: What?

PQ: Do you like Bejeweled?

SPATCH: Uh, sure.

PQ: And do you like RPGs?

SPATCH: Yeah, I guess.

PQ: Then I bet you'd like me! I'm an unholy cross between Bejeweled and an RPG!

SPATCH: Doesn't sound all that compelling. In this game, do I just, like, battle a computer opponent by playing Bejeweled at them?

PQ: Yeah! More or less. We take turns making moves and stuff.

SPATCH: Puzzle Pirates already did a single-player variant on Bejeweled, and they had more than just one game to play, too. I just don't see what the appeal would be here. Running around a land playing Bejeweled against monsters?

PQ: Oh come on, give us a tryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

SPATCH: I've got other things to do.

PQ: You know you waaaaaant toooooooo...

SPATCH: Oh, ok, let's just see what all the fuss is about.

EIGHT HOURS LATER...

SPATCH: Fuck you, Puzzle Quest.

PQ: Nice move! Now watch as I do a chain of multiple four-in-a-rows and make sure I get all the good adds and smack you around for good measure!

SPATCH: Fuck you fuck you fuck you.

PQ: Aw, I left you with one move, see?

SPATCH: Yeah, one that sets you up for another combo chain. You cheat, Docta Jones.

PQ: Didn't you have stuff to do?

SPATCH: Yeah, but it can wait until I get to level 15 and win the fight against the ogre and capture that other dood so I can learn his spells and then buy some new gear so I can bolster my spells and do damage every time I capture yellow mana and and and and and and OH HOW I LOATHE YOU PUZZLE QUEST

SATAN: Yay! That's another notch in my satanic bedpost!

My dad's computer came with that game. It was like crack cocaine from day one.

I'm tempted to do the same, but I know it can only end in tears.

For all its evil when you have Things to Do, PQ has been a steadfast compatriot on airplanes.

Puzzle Quest owned me for weeks and weeks. I was sad when it ended. :(

I am at level 46 and will be ecstatic when it ends. Nothing else has been in my DS for a month at least, and I have other games to play!

I'm sorry to say, it doesn't really end. You can continue playing forever, you just beat the end guy and keep going.

It's an evil evil game.

And I want to play it again now.

If Reno finds out about this, my child may grow up without a father.

Wow, that sounded more ominous than intended. More that I'd never see him again, not that I'd kill him.

Ah yes. Puzzle Quest was the first DS game that has actually made me suffer from the great weariness that I had previously only known from larger console games.


("OW. Neck hurts. Back aches. Hand is slightly tingly. Numb soon, if I don't quit. Maybe I should go eat, or sleep, or something.")

I accidentally erased my save file after I was level 20 or so. No matter. The game is so addictive that I started over from scratch!
