|Not sure how useful that knee band-aid is going to be|
Okay, I'm being overly dramatic, but I have to say I was completely floored by this announcement. Let's Fish! Hooked On (or Let's Try Bass Fishing: Fish on NEXT as it is known in Japan) takes an interesting approach to the world of fishing games by combining sickeningly cute character designs by a famous Japanese artist with "realistic fishing action." Subsequently, it's also the first full-fledged fishing game for the PS Vita. I imagine the front and back touch controls could work very well in a fishing game, if implemented correctly.
|Well, that isn't exactly what I was hoping for.|
Not only is the art style more to my tastes than Let's Fish! Hooked On (can you tell I'm trying to see how many times I can fit that name into this post?), but I haven't heard a negative opinion of Fishing Resort yet. Also, it has ice fishing.
|My dad, once an avid fisherman, took me ice fishing long ago.|
It was, for the most part, cold and boring. I think I'd much
rather think about ice fishing than actually go ice fishing.
And since I'm on the topic of fishing games, I can't not mention the Legend of the River King series. I've been debating whether or not to buy a copy of River King: Mystic Valley (DS) for ages now, and my recent interest in fishing games has brought me back to "should I buy it, or should I not" land. The indecision is killing me!
So: fishing games. Love 'em, hate 'em, or ambivalent towards 'em? If I only bought one fishing game, Let's Fish! Hooked On, Fishing Resort, or River King: Mystic Valley, which would you recommend?
