Rocket Slime!

Yesterday was the release day for Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime for the DS and it's a great deal of fun. It's an alternate universe to the more usual Dragon Quest setting and there are only monsters. You play Rocket, a Slime who's trying to save his town from the depredations of a group of tailed gangsters called the Plob.

It's more of an action-adventure game than an RPG but it's loads of fun. I've only been putting it down when my hands start hurting too much to let me continue. There's lots of good information out there about it, as it's been getting excellent reviews (I believe it was even EGM's handheld game of the month). I highly recommend it for those who are looking for a fun, quirky game.

Of course, this is a tough time. Which Square Enix games to pick? We have Rocket Slime, next week is Valkyrie Profile Silmeria, and in the next couple of months we have Final Fantasy XII and Final Fantasy III coming out. Still, I suggest you give this great title a try. Hey, it gives a person a great excuse to go pick up a black or pink DS Lite. ;)
