Magician's Quest: Mysterious Times :: DS Game Preview

Magician's Quest is set in a wonderfully cute world where people attend Magic Academy and use what they learn to better the lives of those around them. In the game, you play as a new student of the Academy and you meet new friends, earn money, buy accessories, and learn new spells in class.

Hey, This Feels Familiar!

In many ways, Magician's Quest is similar to Nintendo's Animal Crossing, right down to how the world rolls around as you move on the map. In the game, you complete daily activities to improve your character's life. Just like in Animal Crossing, there is fishing and bug collecting and you can also buy furniture to use to decorate your house. There are over 150 unique characters to befriend, including strange animal-people that you may have gotten used to by now. Your relationships with your classmates and townspeople will have levels that can improve or worsen over time depending on whether you do things like giving presents to them.

But...It's Different!

At the same time, there are huge differences that make Magician's Quest a worthwhile title to consider. For one thing, you are a wizard in this game! There are several themes in the game like Who, Where, When, and Do and each have 15 elements. You can cast spells by combining these various elements together and preparing a spell on your wand. Although you still have limited space in your inventory, you don't have to worry about carrying a watering can or fishing rod since your magic wand can transform into it!

There are lots of things that you can customize in Magician's Quest. There are 1,600 different kinds of clothing, furniture, characters and accessories to find, buy and use. You can even customize the music and sound effects with the music editor, changing the bell and hourly tones, as the game runs in real-time. You can connect with up to four other friends via Wi-Fi and visit each other's town and trade spells. You can even work together to combine your magical abilities and complete difficult tasks.

Magician's Quest is a great game to pick up if you are a Harry Potter, Animal Crossing, or MySims fan. It is a great game to play even if you are not a fan! Be sure to keep an eye on store shelves next week, when the game comes out.

    What you’re refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/LInux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

    No they shouldn't be allowed to play video games.  The best thing for women to do is to go out and settle down with a nice dindu as soon as they reach the age of 18.
