Started playing WoW after bf and friends got me into it. Playing a troll mage and got him to level 17 so far. I have mixed feelings about the game at the moment, but I'm having fun overall.

Finished Dragon Age: Origins and am completely floored. Haven't had a game experience like that since P3. Not that they were very similar, but they both elicited the same kind of feeling after I finish them, the same kinda melancholy feeling I got when I was younger when I finished a really good game or book and was sad for it to be over. I'm gonna genuinely miss the experience. Here's to a sequel coming out in the near future. *raises glass*

since I think it shares more with English than other languages since they're both Germanic, but I could be wrong

In order of most to least closely related to English, you have Scots, Frisian, Dutch, and German, with Afrikaans probably being somewhere between Dutch and German since it's an offshoot of Dutch. Also some people debate whether or not Scots is a language or a dialect. Additionally the weird Scottish accent in Dragon Quest 4 was not in fact Scottish English but a sort of pidginized Scots, I think?.

Also "German" and "Dutch" are more bizarre dialect continuums in the sense that Scots and English are probably equally/more mutually intelligible than, say, Hochdeutsch and Bavarian are.

Anyway, despite being less related, Swedish is faaaaaar easier than German for an English speaker. Namely, only two genders, fairly regular pluralization, verbs don't conjugate, and no cases. Also the general sentence logic is closer to English.

Ah, I stand corrected then. :)  You're right, the small amount of Swedish I've been exposed to has appeared more logically similar to English.

I recommend German for anyone looking for something not too complex as a language, since I think it shares more with English than other languages since they're both Germanic, but I could be wrong. I've been studying it for 5 years now, and I have somewhat of a reading proficiency with it, and I can speak it on a basic level. Dunno if I'll try to learn another one for December, but if I do I'd like to try French or Portuguese.

It's finals week so not much in the way of gaming. I ordered L4D2 and had it sent to my house instead of my dorm because I just wouldn't have the time nor the opportunities to really enjoy it here. I've also subsequently played too much L4D2 Demo and L4D1 in anticipation of the game, so I'm hoping I'm not gonna be sick of it by the time I get home.

When Fallout 3 came out, when it got advertised, it only ever advertised the Xbox 360 and PC versions. It was like saying that it never came out on PS3.

I barely even remember it coming out for PS3. I can definitely see how multiplatform games are marketed with a 360 bias, since I've seen several games at the game shop at the PS3 section and been like, "Wait, that was multiplatform?" Bioshock was an example of this, until like a month ago I didn't even know it was on anything BUT 360.

Been playing DA:O when I get the chance. Playing a Human Mage and am currently at level 6. I'm thinking of taking Shapeshifter and Arcane Warrior specializations, so I need to start getting my strength and dex up.

I feel similar, I have many games that I just haven't finished. I don't feel like listing them all but I'm guilty of not finishing:

Persona 4 (I keep saying I'm gonna finish it next week or something akin to that)
Valkyrie Profile (One irritating dungeon really sapped the motivation for me)
.Hack G.U. Vol. 2 (got burned out after playing it right after playing the 1st)
Lunar 2 (Same reason as previous)
Tales of Vesperia (Dropped it after Persona 4 came out and just haven't touched it since)
Fallout 3 (Ran out of steam)
Wild Arms 5 (I liked the characters a lot, but the story was paced funky, so I lost motivation).

These are the most recent ones, but I have plenty more unfinished games.

I was hoping she was gonna be a party character, I really like her design. I'm getting dangerously optimistic about this game now.

I finally finished Umineko Episode 2, and that was one hell of an ending. I had to play it with my headphones in, but being so drawn in and after being assaulted both visually and aurally during that last scene, I ended it with tears forming in my eyes from such an intense experience. I really really like it, and I liked the 2nd episode better than the 1st, but I'm not 100% sure what to believe is going on yet. I guess I'll have to wait for answer episodes to find out.

Played some more Wild Arms XF as well. I'm on Act 1-9, I think. Difficulty is pretty good I'd say, I have to use my head for some battles, which is nice.

This is a really nice surprise, and I'm glad they included something like this. This is kinda funny considering:

Code:
You revisit P3's city (I forget the name) in P4.

I hope they manage to make the console ports of this game competent. It's it's some sort of DA:O Lite, I'm going to be pissed.

Agreed, since I need to get it for the 360 cause I know my laptop would play it like a wood chipper plays a violin.

EDIT: Also, if anyone cares here's a link to where you can get the character creator tool. More like a link to a link, but it's there!

Anyone else get an erection when they think about this game?

Oh god yes.

Up to the beginning of the 6th chapter of Valkyrie Profile. I'm still digging the game, but after reading a few FAQs, I know I've missed my chance to get the "A" ending, but meh. There was no way I could have known my first time through without an FAQ. After I finish, which I hope I'll do sometime in the next two weeks, I'm thinking of either Wild Arms XF or Persona.
