XIIZeal - I'm really bad at level 3. Like generally I can get through 2 and 4 without dying (red-variant of the level 2 boss is made for bombing anyway so), but level 3 oh dang. Anyway one of the arrange modes with DDP DFK Black Label is supposed to have some mechanic where you bomb lasers for points, like in XIIZeal, although idk if that's included in the DLC-version and ffff getting EU-DLC on a US 360 involves hoops.
SF3 - Leveled up my dudes a bit. Don't usually do this, but meh. Felt like it. Basically Synbios is under-leveled cause he's risky to use.
Nanatsu Kaze - Did the thing where you watch Garp have a dream about his past life. Did it wrong the first time, which results in seeing a video of an IRL tiger lily blowing in the wind. Totally cute and harmless. Did it right the second time.
The video for the actual dream is a totally red background with this black, flatwoods monster looking thing with large, white eyes and like... weird stretched out arms with tentacles/feathers coming off of them and genuinely creepy
After that a giant purple flying moose gave me a miniature Christmas tree!
--- edit ---
Akai Katana - Ok, revisited this. Still maintain that the original mode sort of blows.
Climax mode, on the other hand, which I never remember doing much with, improves everything immensely. I'm not sure if it changes much besides ship balance and the bullet count, but basically it's a lot easier to get energy and actually use the game's mechanics.
Anyway, non-cracked copy of ToR came. Imma check that out.
