Muramasa: The Demon Blade
You ever have one of those days? I'm talking, really bad. Like, a demon possessed your body and you found out your boyfriend screwed up big time bad. Yeah, not fun
- Gorgeous hand drawn graphics, deep combat and tight controls, multiple storylines
- Gameplay can be overly linear, combat occasionally bogs down and gets boring
Muramasa: The Demon Blade has delightful graphics, but it can be somewhat linear.
Well, that's what the last few days of my life have been like. My name's Momohime, and before I had my body stolen by a blood-lusting spirit, I was just a little country girl living my life in beautiful feudal Japan. Since all this has happened, I really don't know what to do anymore, but hopefully getting things off my chest will help me deal with everything that's happened to me. Care to lend an ear?
First off I should mention that if you've seem me lately, you probably noticed that I didn't seem like myself. The demon that took over my body has gone on a wild killing spree from province to province, collecting swords (or getting another spirit to make a plethora of others for him), and basically offing a lot of people. Well, they haven't all been people, because as you might've noticed we've got a lot of strange creatures running around these days.
The odd thing is, I couldn't help but become entranced by the demon's deft swordplay. He would switch between three swords at once without breaking a sweat, and the variety of his movements and attacks was really impressive. Occasionally I'd grow tired of watching him fight wave after wave of sumurai, demon, imp, or any of the other countless other things that got in his way, but there's not much else to do when you've become a wispy spirit along for the ride.
I should also mention that before I was possessed, I didn't get out much (the BF was kinda possessive). You can imagine my surprise when I saw what lay waiting outside the boundaries of my home: Golden yellow fields just before dusk, snowy mountain slopes awash with the last cherry blossoms of the season, verdant forests where you could almost taste the small rays of sunlight that slipped through the trees. It was breathtaking. My only qualm with the demon was that he never really veered us off the beaten path, for the most part we were always trying to get from point A to point B; I would've loved to take in the sights more.
Along the way we met a young samurai named Kitsune, who had lost his memory and was also on an unexpected journey. From our brief meeting I could tell he was also handy with a blade, and I also found out that he had experienced and seen many of the places I had been. Lucky for him he doesn't have a damn demon stuck inside his body. Well thanks for listening, I feel a lot better now. I have a feeling that if you want to find out anything else, you'll know where to find me.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications
I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.
I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
