Just chiming in to say: yes, this game is awesome, and deserves to be bought by the boat load.

TWEWY was very original and exciting, really enjoyed the combat and story in that one. It's got a whole lot of content, to boot.

Knights in the Nightmare was another one with a great combat system. Finished that not too long ago; the story isn't terribly interesting, but the game itself is great fun.

Right now I'm going through SMT: Devil Survivor. Probably up there with TWEWY as one of my favorite games on the system. Love the battles, upgrading demons, and the story.

Then there's the old standby: Pokemon. Doesn't matter which one you get, you can't go wrong. They're all fantastic and loaded with things to do.

Chrono Trigger's another one that's always good to have. The impact of the game is sort of diluted to me now that I've played it so much on so many different platforms, but it's still great.

Foals - Two Steps Twice

Fucking love this band.

Haven't run into any bugs or balance issues yet (day 3). The story is really clever. The whole time mechanic is very well done. The characters aren't as mature as I'd like, but as the game progresses they become less grating. Really enjoying the combat, demon recruiting, and fusion as well. It's pretty fun experimenting with new combinations.

I'm really surprised Devil Survivor isn't getting more attention here. It's my favorite RPG in I-don't-even-know-how-long. Never played a Megami Tensei game before. Can I expect this sort of quality from the rest of the series?
6  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How is Fable 2? on: July 12, 2009, 12:33:20 PM
It's much better than the first game in nearly every way. Magic has been scaled back, as combat has become more streamlined. Overworld stuff is definitely much better than the dungeon areas, which feature many narrow and uninteresting corridors. The story is interesting, the main villain is unique, and you can basically save or destroy multiple towns throughout (often won't immensely affect the game, but it's certainly engaging to watch how the world changes based on your actions). Marriage is still undercooked, though it features heavily in parts of the story and certain side quests. I liked it a lot, came away from it totally satisfied. First Fable was pretty bad, I thought, so maybe my expectations were just low. Still, it was a fun ride.

It's not essential, but it's worth playing.

Thought The Last Guardian was an E3 standout and the rest was totally overshadowed by MS and Nintendo.

I though the Microsoft E3 was just ok to meh. I thought Alan Wake would be good but it didn't seem like a psychological thriller... More of "kill the baddies in dark lighting"

But then again, I'm not an FPS guy.

What stood out for me was FFXIII (multiplat), MGS:R (multiplat), and the Natal project (the more advanced Wii, this is probably the best so far).
Since when has Alan Wake been an FPS?

L4D 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction really impressed me. Natal looks great for menu interfacing, but will need some really great software to convince me of its merits as a gaming device. Halo ODST really disappointed me, I'm indifferent toward Metal Gear, and the star of the show so far is the 15 minute Red Steel 2 walkthrough.

Overall MS's conference really impressed. Thought it was very strong; the Twitter, last.fm, and facebook stuff is very interesting. Full game downloads is another whopper, and 1 vs. 100 seems very promising.

Finished GTAIV at 65%, Played for 29 hours and 44 minutes.

Fantastic game.

I didn't realize there were multiple endings until after I finished it. I chose the revenge path, and thought it was pretty affecting. Looked up some stuff about it online and saw the other ending on youtube... man, I don't think I could have taken that. Having Roman die would have been [i]awful[/i]. Love the characters in this game.

Can't wait to play more.

The kid and I finished Castle Crashers. Pretty kick ass game. Some of those bosses were quite tough. I imagine we'll play some more just for the fun of it. I might DL Alien Homind, as well, although it looks a bit too similar.
Anyone have any recommendations for fun 2-player games I can play with an 8 year old? (preferably 360 arcade type)
I'm at the last stage of Act 4 in Gears of War. I'm supposed to run across a locust infested courtyard to get to an APC in a very short amount of time. I am having a VERY hard time accomplishing this, and have died repeatedly. I may have reached my limit on this game.

Alien Hominid is pretty different from Castle Crashers. Much, much, much more difficult. Insanely violent. No RPG elements. It's more Metal Slug than Streets of Rage. As for 2 player games, I'd recommend N+. It's tough, but a lot of fun.

I think it's very good, but a step back from San Andreas. I'm still playing it myself (49%) and perhaps I'm looking through rose-tinted glasses but I remember there being a lot more variety to the missions in SA. It seems lke nearly every mission is 'go here, kill x.'

Never liked any other GTA, really. Haven't spent a significant amount of time with any of them besides IV. Never liked the presentation, the juvenile way things were often dealt with. GTA IV is a substantial experience, I think. I don't mind the missions because the design is so well done. I get wrapped up in the experience, Liberty City feeling very alive and very real. It's very polished and mature compared to what I've seen from the rest of the series.

I think I have the best post count right now. Might have to never post again.

everluck: I suck at it but I might be able to help you with the C++ stuff. Also about.com used to have some decentish tutorials depending on how much of a beginner you are and LazyFoo has good... SDL things.
That's rad, thanks. I'll keep that in mind.

21 hours into Grand Theft Auto IV. In-game stats page says I'm 42% done.

Incredible game. Can't believe I waited so long to play it, but in a way I'm glad. Get to experience it on my own without talking about it with friends/reading about it online and potentially ruining the plot and scenarios. It may be my favorite game of this gen. It's an immense experience.

Working out. Probably close to 2+ hours a day.

Watching movies. Being a film student, I like to think of this as doing my homework.

Writing. Usually poetry and short stories, but I've written a few plays and am working on a few larger projects. Haven't been published in anything past student magazines, but I'm working on it.

I like going to concerts, but haven't had any opportunities to this semester. Going to see David Cook next month, if that counts (hey, I think he's the best thing to come out of American Idol, if nothing else). Only other thing I have lined up this year is lollapalooza, but that's a ways away.

Also, currently trying to learn C++. I have no resources for this besides the internet, so it's been tough going. I lump this in with my hobbies because "trying to learn something new and ultimately failing" is a favorite past time of mine.
