I haven't played much, but I am really liking it so far. Just got Garrus. I miss the middle dialogue option though; it seems in most convos you can take either the kind option, or the blunt option. I kinda miss just having a neutral option when I don't wanna go one way or another.

All this talk about the ending though is a bit discouraging. D: I suppose I should just enjoy it now before I reach the end.

In terms of technical problems, I'm on the 360 and I haven't had any FPS issues yet. There's was one weird clipping issue near the beginning, but I haven't seen it since then. The biggest bug I encountered (outside of the face import issue) was that in some convos where Shep and the other person are stationary, but they move their heads to look at something (like Liara's drone), sometimes their heads get stuck in that position. This ends when you leave the convo, but it was kinda noticeable.

But anyway. I always install shit because I've got a ridiculous 360 hard drive. I can take the disc swapping. I hope.

Just keep the disc you're not using near you; if your case is anything like mine, the discs are a pain to get out of there, so I just set the disc aside near the 360. I've only done one side-quest so far, but I seriously had to switch to disc 2 for just that side-quest; when I did a main quest after it, I had to switch back.

You guys following the Alliance News Network stuff? https://twitter.com/AllianceNewsNet Updates from the POV of Emily Wong, pretty neat marketing IMO.

These ARG posts are working on me. I keep seeing new tweets from "Emily Wong" and I keep thinking, "Shit, I need to start up my Xbox and get down there and help!"

FemShep version of Take Back Earth Trailer.

Pretty much the same up till the end where its FemShep instead of MaleShep. Nice to see her get the CGI treatment though.

Slow day at work.

daydreaming about zombie slaying

I do this when I get bored. I think about zombie attack scenarios in wherever I am.

Haps: Watching Fairy Tale with the boyfriend and eating Chinese take-out.

I had it pre-ordered, but I was running low on funds and since I was buying it to show support anyway (No PS3), it got cut in favor of the games that I can play. Maybe when income tax comes in I may pick it up. :(

Devil Survivor 2.

Here are thoughts so far.

Still in first day, and my feelings for it are about the same as the previous incarnation. Essentially, some things improved or worsened, but there is an equal amount of both so it balances. For one, I wish they had a Day 0 scenario that helped introduce the main characters, since the story pacing so far has been a little rushed. I like the main character's design, and Io (so far) is infinitely better than Yuzu, but that is not really much of an accomplishment.

I agree with the review about taking the guesswork out of choosing which places to go on the map, but no because it lessens the tension; I liked highlighting the areas and hearing what the people there were talking about, or what my party members were talking about. You were able to get a sense of how the populous was handling the crisis.

I'm really curious about the nature of the antagonists. I'm pleasantly reminded of the Evangelion and the whole mystery behind the angels. Let's hope this keeps up.

I know I'm late to the party on this one, but I played LotSB last night, and to echo the thoughts of Kirk Hamilton in his article about ME3, if all of ME3 is like this DLC, I will love every bit of it. The writing and interactions between Shepard and Liara were great, the action parts were well done, and it delivered TWO memorable boss fights. I loved all the in-jokes too, and they really captured the sense of that special relationship between two really good friends/comrades.

The part that really got me was the personal continuity. During the first boss fight:

I chose the Paragon dialog option, and Shepard brought up his actions regarding the Rachni and how he saved the council (in my game), and used it to intimidate Tela Vasir. I really dig these throwbacks to these previous decisions, since they were kinda sorta super important, so why not bring them up more.

Last night's episode was one of the best yet. Good zombie action, and I'm glad Rick is finally coming back into focus as the leader. The Lori/Andrea/Beth/Maggie storyline was okay, but the real highlight was was the Shane/Rick story.

Picked Sakura Wars 2 back up. Just finished Chapter 7, and now am on Chapter 8. Going for Sumire for my first time through, and have her pretty much locked in 1st place. I love this series so much you guys. They can never make enough Sakura Wars.

I'll be getting it on Tuesday. Don't know if I'll start playing right away, because if the first Devil Survivor is any indication, I won't be able to beat it in a week ie. before Mass Effect 3 comes out. But Atlus' first prints of games like this are too small for me to take a chance on not buying it on day one. =P

This is the same line of arguing that my bf used to convince me to pre-order. Don't wanna take that chance that there won't be enough copies available later, even if I don't play much of it before ME3. We got to stockpile this shit while we can!

360 here and I'd love to get a 4 player game going. I think I'm pretty much done w/ the demo version. I've seen enough to know I'll love it.

If I ever get Gold I'm totes in. Honestly, I only played a little but ME3 multiplayer makes it pretty tempting.

The key is to visualize your own success

This thread just went from Good to Great and it truly is Built to Last.

Crash Bandicoot 1/2/3
I was a little kid back then but im sure id still have a lot of fun with these games

I have a big ol' nostalgia engorged heart for Crash. Those games were a lot of fun, but I haven't touched them since I was 10, so I have no idea how they are now.

I also recommend Medieval, despite being clunky. I loved the cartoonish dark fantasy world. The sequel is pretty good too.

Clock Tower. The first one for the PSX. This game is pretty old, and the controls are awful (point and click using the PSX controller), but it is a genuinely creepy game. Similar to Amnesia, it's a survival horror game, except you don't actually fight the killer, you have to run and hide and hope it doesn't find you. The thing that makes this one the best is that the killer's music doesn't play until after he just kicked the door open, scaring you shitless. The one for the PS2 had the music precede the killer, which ruined the suspense.

Anyone else remember Gex? All I remember was the platforming made me feel stupid, and I thought the games were funny.

Anyone here ever eat the skin on a kiwi? The california kiwifruit commission claims you can but i don't know man...

Don't think, just do it! Throw caution to the wind, but just don't choke or I'll totally feel bad! D:

Been working on my 3rd Shep in ME1. Just finished Feros. Even though its on Hardcore, after ME2 Insanity, I find it kinda easy/moderate. I'm playing Infiltrator (loving it) and have Snipes maxed out and bought the Spectre Sniper rifle. I kill most enemies in one shot, and if not, Assassination does. I hardly use any other weapons anymore.

I've been using Kaidan and Liara, and while Kaidan is the least compelling of all the squadmates, him and Liara make a great disabling team. Liara throws a Singularity and I pick them off, and if anything gets too close, Kaidan throws them or uses Neural Shock. Most organic enemies seem to be going down easily this way.

With all that said, I need to stop playing, cause I can feel the beginning of a "getting tired of this" feeling. I don't wanna be burnt out by the time ME3 comes out.
