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.

The new trailer was pretty good, but my minor nitpick is that they decided to show Ashley of all people. Not that I don't like Ashley, but it should have been Liara, considering:

(Not sure if these even count as spoilers anymore, but spoilers for ME and ME2)

All your other squadmates can potentially die, except Liara. I mean, she's technically the most permanent of all the Squadmates.

Preordered ME3, and started playing over 1 and 2 again.

I'm doing the same, but I'm afraid of overindulging and getting sick of ME. How do you prevent that?!

Today is my bf's birthday, but we're doing the long-distance thing and both of us have prior obligations. We did the celebration thing last week, though.  As for me, doing homework, then class,  and then watching this week's Drag Race.

I bought Kasumi for my second playthrough, and I actually really liked her. Her loyalty mission is pretty cool, and she's an awesome character. Her sneak attack skill is kinda broken, since it takes her out of the line of fire, which I abused many many times over.

Been re-playing Mass Effect to have a new big gay BroShep ready for all the big gay romances in Mass Effect 3. My friends keep asking me why I don't just start at 2, but I'd prefer to make all the decisions myself. I know you can in the beginning of the 2nd, but there's all the side-missions in the 1st one that crop up with outcomes/effects in the 2nd, and presumably the 3rd. Also, Mass Effect 1 is fun (except the Mako).

Playing it on Hardcore difficulty and I just got Liara. Thinking I'm gonna take Liara and Kaidan with me the whole time to get those achievements.

I'm totes getting it. As a big fan of VNs, I eat up any chance a non-erotic game gets licensed.

Been watching a lot the new season of RuPaul's Drag Race. Anyone else watch this show? It's become my latest guilty pleasure. Yeah, its trash tv, but so entertaining, and it really has taught me quite a bit about drag culture, and eliminated a lot of stereotypes for me. It's also one of the few shows I watch nowadays; until Game of Thrones comes back (so excited!) this show and Walking Dead are the only things I watch.

Hale is fucking badass. I'm not one of those who play females just because I am one, but after two runs with FemShep it's really hard to play as MShep. That trailer was worth the wait. :)

I agree, Hale's performance is just amazing; she hits all the right notes. Meer's performance isn't bad, but compared to Hale's it comes off a bit stiff at times, especially in the 1st game. In the 2nd, he has a better range.

Along with the host of trailers featured in the recent news on the main website, Bioware has finally unveiled the FemShep trailer. I'm sad that there even has to be a "FemShep trailer" and that she was featured in more trailers, but at least she has one. It was pretty decent too, showing off not only FemShep being badass, but some ME2 characters as well.

Pure catharsis. I'm sure there'll be a message at the end about being judgmental and shit, but until then, I'm ready to enjoy this ride. Glad to see Freddy Rumsen getting mean.

While I am excited for what the trailer promises, I'm a tad sad that they chose Chris and Leon again as leads. I am more fond of the RE ladies myself, like Rebecca, Jill and Claire. Sheva was pretty cool too, partner.

Anyone else curious about Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom at all?  It's rare to see an otome game in the US, but it's Idea Factory.  That's enough to make anyone kneejerk, but is it fair to knock it before you try it?  Hey, if I'd done that, I wouldn't have listened to WASP's "The Crimson Idol" album, which is fantastic.  I know it's WASP, but put your preconceived notions aside and check it out.  At least Hakuoki doesn't look like typical !F, so it would be nice if the whole package turns out to be a pleasant surprise like Crimson Idol was for me. 

I'm totes excited for Hakuoki. It seems to have a pretty popular following, and the art released so far is nice to look at. Plus, the screenshots of its system shows that it at least has a few more bells and whistles compared to most visual novels available over here. One of my favorite features is a route chart thing, which I wish more VNs made use of.

Other than that, I'm pretty stoked for Tales of Graces f, even if I don't have a PS3. I do plan to get one, and I want to throw in my support, so I think of it as more of a preliminary buy.


Mass Effect 3 for god knows how many reasons.

Edit: Forgot Growlanser IV! Can't wait to get my fix of them shiny anime people!
