Took down AssCreed 2. Started it over the summer and ended up finishing it this past week. Really fun game, and free running is my fav activity ever. Huge info dump there at the end, but I kinda expected most of it, what from the hints and some spoilers I read. The last sequence with Desmond was pretty dope though; I hope there'll be more of that in the future.

Played through The Walking Dead Episode 1. Wow. This game is fantastic. The characters. The situations. The decisions! I love it. I need to DL Ep. 2 asap.

Grim, what kind of decisions did you make in Ep. 1?

Code:
I saved Carley and stood up to Larry to get him to back down, but didnt fight him. Also, I saved Duck when the Walkers attacked Hershel's farm.

Just beat Persona 4. It took me 4 years and 2 1/2 tries, but I have finally conquered it. There's nothing that I can say that hasn't already been said. In sum, I loved it, fantastic game, can't wait for the next entry. I was lvl 84 with 102 hours in.

Walking Dead Episode 3

Now that school's done for the semester, I got some catching up to do. Decided to do play some Walking Dead, only to find that my save for episode 2 didn't take, and I had to replay the whole episode. That wasn't too bad, and I got to re-do one of the decisions I wasn't happy with (I feel it was my prerogative since the game didn't keep my save.) Episode 3 is just as nuts, and there was one scene where my jaw literally dropped. My opinion about some of the characters has completely been turned on its head. The episode was so intense that I have to sit back and let it all soak in. Very emotionally powerful.

Not a funny quote, but one of my favs comes from Joey Comeau and Emily Horne of A Softer World

"I have a two part question. 1. What would you do if you were going to die? And 2. How did you ever convince yourself you weren't?"

A tight-knit genre? That's stupid. Apparently the zillion subgenres of RPG don't count.

Actually you can easily ignore a game like Skyrim. Especially since the core design philosophy behind DA is completely different from TES. I'll take a more narrow slice of 'content' with more carefully designed gameplay over 'here, have a shitload of mediocre randomness.'

Unless your owner says your game must sell a bazillion copies, so make it like Skyrim,' there's no reason to homogenize.

Also, Skyrim wasn't a new direction. Unless you count selling way more than its predecessors despite being the same basic game' as a new direction. Which is exactly what he's saying, in PR speak.

Couldn't agree more.  Personally I've never really liked Bethesda's RPGs and it's sad to see Bioware being so insecure about their own legacy.  They have been responsible for some really great games (including the original Dragon Age) that are in a completely different style than Bethesda.  A style I actually like.

I can only pray that this is just PR speak and they're not actually abandoning the things used to make them great...

I also agree. I loved Skyrim, but I also loved Dragon Age (both games), and I play them both for different game experiences. As much as I loved Skyrim/Fallout, I can only take so much of their open-world game formula.

Crazy excited for this now. The videos and screenshots look great, and the DLC actually looks pretty decent.

Stage Map Pack A -- $1.99: Requiem for War and Liquid Fire stages for The Mercenaries.

Didn't knew there was more DLC for RE6 coming, at least is not terribly expensive or anything.

Edit: And more DLC announced...

That Predator mode sounds amazing. Can't wait!

Another Space Jam themed one. One of my best friends turned me on to this one:

Battle for Everyone's Slams

So, I finished Kurozuka and I kinda gotta say...huh? But, having said that in a weird way I enjoyed the show. Popped in BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad and after 6 episodes I am really digging this show, we'll see how it goes I guess.

I fucking loved BECK. I've lost 90% of the patience I had with anime since graduating high school (a personal taste issue, not trying to insinuate anything),  but BECK was able to hold my attention through all the episodes when I watched it last summer. And I loved the dub; I think Greg Ayers did a fantastic job with the singing.

American Horror Story: Sometimes I'm blown back by how well acted this show is, the actresses in particularly. Sarah Paulson's mixture of fear, revulsion and determination to live when in Bloody Face's basement just sent chills up my spine.

Yeah, she is absolutely fantastic. I especially liked her in that incredibly unsettling scene back in episode 5 or so where Dr. Threadson

Code:
performs that revulsion therapy on Lana. She was so believable in her disgust and determination.

I'm also super digging Lily Rabe, she just has such a presence. My eyes go straight to her in every scene she is in.

What I am looking forward to the most is being able to name my soldiers after my friends, and then update them on their virtual fates. :D

A friend of mine in high school did this with our group of friends in The Sims.  A few weeks in I was scarred for life by the stories I heard. :(

Thread duty:  XCOM seems very interesting and is getting solid reviews.  I have a huge backlog to work on so I don't know when I'll play it, but I'll probably try to buy it within the next few months as a show of support.

Same here, at least in terms of backlog; I did end up buying it. I played long enough for one of my friends to be gutted by an alien with scythe-like claws (see last post above). When I told him about it he seemed to take his death pretty well.

I've just discovered the Rescue the Princess blog and it seems to be a lot of fun.  I think I'll be sinking several days into catching up on the backlog on this site.

I love this bloggy thing. <3
FAV'd

Sharing one of my favorites, good for quick chuckles when class is boring me to tears. 27b/6.  Lots of writing, but read the fatter column in the middle; this man is a satirical genius.

I've always been a fan of Blogger Beware, which I'd take a look at if you ever read the Goosebumps books as a kid.

Boy, if this proves true then I'm glad I got ignored held off on making a purchase on Friday.

And I bought one just three weeks ago. The charge is still on my credit card ><.
