I haven't wanted to say anything, but I think I'm finally free of that virus I got last week. At least it wasn't appendicitis.
I've been playing Puzzle Quest on the DS pretty much constantly, even though I find it annoying. Unlike Puzzle Pirates, there's only one kind of puzzle. Whatever it gains from ripping off Bejeweled is lost because you have to take turns against the CPU, which is only handicapped by being programmed to occasionally "miss" moves. And watching the computer get bonus turn after bonus turn after bonus turn is pretty frustrating too.
On the other hand, I can't really put it down. So there's something to say for bolting a generic RPG onto a simple, repetitive gameplay mechanism.
