Healing with Tokyo Mirage Sessions and Dragon Quest XI S Demo

I had one wisdom tooth removed two weeks ago. The surgery was quick, but I was anxious after surgery due to my mouth being sore and have stitches in my mouth. I also had a delayed allergic reaction to amoxicillin which led to a full body rash and my lips swelling up! Luckily, I was able to see my doctor and get some medicine to heal my rash up and it’s finally gone! My wisdom tooth is also healed and I just have to rinse my mouth with salt water for one more week and I’ll be all set!

What got me through the panic of having a surgery and feeling sick was Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE for the Wii U. The Dragon Quest 11 S demo helped me feel better about my rash because it was actually released the day my rash broke out and I had to see the doctor! That was a nice way to end a stressful day!

Tokyo Mirage Sessions

I decided to play this game to help me feel better because I wanted to play a game that was not too challenging and since the combat of this game mirrors the Persona games, I thought it would be easy to play when I was not feeling well.

It made me so happy! I loved doing the puzzles because I was in a dungeon with cameras that you could not face or else you would be transported back and lose progress. It also had a really cool boss named Gangrel. He could attack multiples times and summon enemies to guard him so he was a fun challenge. I loved his boss design because he attacks with his head! His collar will attack you and he does a good amount of damage! I also liked that he had a smirk during the battle which made him look over confident.

The best part was the concert performances! I actually had 2 concerts happen while I was playing which made me happy! I enjoyed the singing and the choreography and the costumes! It was like I was experiencing a live performance in my house! It just put a smile on my face and helped me relax and forget that I was still recovering from my wisdom tooth!

Dragon Quest XI S Demo

So this will be my first Dragon Quest and I am so excited to play the full game when it comes out! This game had me smiling as soon as I booted it up and it proceeded to blast the main theme through my TV! I was not expecting it to be loud so I had to quickly turn it down, but it just made me laugh!

I loved the opening village. I spent time exploring it and the game is so pretty! I also love the soundtrack especially the battle theme. I purposefully trigger battles just to hear the beginning of the battle theme play! I also love that the monsters walk around on screen and I love their character designs! I think my favorite so far is the Bunicorn since I love that it is a bunny with a horn; it is adorable!

I am interested in hearing more about the Luminary! I stopped playing the demo when I reached the town of Heliodor! The demo is really long, I was expecting it to stop once I  left Cobblestone! I am glad I decided to try the demo because now I know i will love the game!

Games as Healing

I love that video games can allow you to feel better when you are sick. Tokyo Mirage Sessions helped me forget I had surgery a few days ago and helped me feel normal again. It put a smile on my face watching the performances and fighting a boss!

The Dragon Quest XI S demo helped me feel less scared after I had a sudden bad reaction to the amoxicillin I was given for my wisdom tooth! I was scared because I did not know when the rash would lessen and I was not expecting to be allergic to an antibiotic. But, I again forgot I had a stressful day when I downloaded the demo and started playing. The game was just so bright and happy that I had to smile and laugh!

  1. I’m sorry you had such a rough experience with your wisdom tooth removal, but I’m glad you’re feeling better and had some good games to help you! I’m in the middle of the DQ 11 demo myself, and I love it! I’ve played several of the other titles and this one is definitely starting off in a good position to be my favorite adventure yet!

      1. I’m glad! And yes: the story and soundtrack are great so far! I was first drawn to Dragon Quest because the same artist created Dragon Ball Z (my favorite anime from childhood) and I adore his style. The visuals of this game are quite impressive: very vibrant and lively on our modern consoles!

      2. Yeah! Every single game: even the original for the NES way back in the day! The style has obviously evolved (much like the art from Dragon Ball to Dragon Ball Z), but it still has a slightly-whimsical charm to it!
