I did follow the link in your signature a while ago, Mickeymac92.  But like you mentioned they have closed registration.  I've just customised my spreadsheet with the same ideas from Backloggery...

Neat. Oh, they might reopen the registration if the revamp(which should be done soonish) reduces the server problems they've been having, in case anyone was interested.

Anywho, I think I've done what the OP was kinda talking about durring last Summer: I started treating games that weren't RPGs like they were RPGs, making it harder for me to enjoy those Non-RPGs. For instance, I started treating Death as a major consequence in action games, when death is more or less to be expected, and dying on a level is a minor setback compared to losing hours of play in an RPG.

I've tried doing that 3 times before, but I could never stick with it. I'm glad it worked for you, though. I'm just too impulsive - I play whatever I'm in the mood to play.

It was hard at first, but it eventually works out.  I have a backlog of great games to play right now, but I'm currently playing great games so I'm happy knowing that I'll finish my current great games and move on to my backlog of great games instead of starting them all at once and fucking it all up.

I'm a very organised person - sometimes people mock me for it.  For example, I have a spreadsheet of the games I own which is arranged into genre, format and whether they have been completed or not.  I even arrange my games on shelves and have the ones I haven't finished sticking out slightly so at a glance I can see what going on.  All alphabetical, naturally.

Oh boy...

I have something like that, too, on the Backloggery. Too bad they closed registration, it's a great way to keep your games organized.

Anyways, I'll give it another shot and see if I can stick to it, especially after Xmas.

Was that trailer super-choppy for anyone else?  Didn't seem to be a CPU-usage issue, either.  More like there wasn't enough bandwidth but they weren't buffering it.

It was ultra bad for me, a few Frames per seconds, actually. Luckily that Youtube Trailer worked out fine.

I tend to play only 1 RPG at a time these days.

In the past I would have 2 or 3 on the go at once and I found that I would never finish them half the time, so I decided to focus only on 1 so that I could enjoy it more.  Sure, it takes me longer to play a game, but at least I'm more likely to finish it.

I sometimes break this rule, since I do a lot of travelling for work, so for example, now I'm playing Dragon Age: Origins at home on console and Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light on handheld.

Alongside RPGs I will limit myself to 1 other game for each of the formats - again, so I get round to actually finishing them.

Since following this rule, my gaming has been a lot better - I'm finishing more games and enjoying more games.

I've tried doing that 3 times before, but I could never stick with it. I'm glad it worked for you, though. I'm just too impulsive - I play whatever I'm in the mood to play.

Played some Got my butt kicked in Melty Blood Act Cadenza. That boss is mad cheap, but otherwise it was a nice way to pass the time before bed.

Except their list consisted mostly of Xbox 360 and PS3 games that I don't care about, whereas you had a very diverse, rip-offable list.=P
1282  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: were you a good RPGfan this year? Xmas wishlist. on: December 14, 2010, 08:37:39 PM
Stuff I asked for:

1 $20 PSN Card
Final Fantasy: 4 Heroes of Light
The Dark Spire
Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City
Sonic Colors (DS)

I was a very good boy so I hope I get them all.=3

So it got to Zero and then reset another 24 hours. Got all excited for nothing.=(

Click the link again. It's due to be revealed at 5 pm EST on 12/14/7 AM JST on 12/15.
hahaha

The stupid clock is counting down to 5 pm depending on each individual's PC clock. It should be 5 pm Japan time, which is about 11 hours from now I think.

Ah, that explains it. Man, that's....odd. I guess I'll wait until tomorrow.

So I finally beat Chrono Trigger DS. I left it on the final boss for almost a year, dunno why it took me so long, but I'm glad I finally finished it. I got Ending 01 and it was great. I think I'll do the Post game stuff then do a new Game Plus this summer when I hopefully have fewer games to play.

Zeta and Victory are notorious for killing off characters. I find it more realistic than shows like Gundam 00 or the SEED series, where only a few people died in the whole war (that weren't cannon fodder.)

Yeah, I have no problem with it functionally, but I'd like it if they were developed more before they died off so why the viewers would have a reason to care when they do die. I recall Zeta Gundam always did that. In Victory Gundam it just seems like they're a step above cannon fodder.

US version of Final Fantasy Chronicles Featured FF4 and Chrono Trigger. The PAL version of Final Fantasy Anthology came featured FF4 and FF5, while the NA version had FF5 and FF6.
1287  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FFIV Complete Collection for PSP on: December 13, 2010, 01:47:29 PM
Depending on price and release time I'll get this.

I'd rather play IV on the psp than the DS because I don't like the 3d visuals on the ds. weird perspective.

Agreed. Plus if it includes a selectable difficulty level, or even just includes the hard-type, I could even see it as the hard mode of FF4.
1288  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FFIV Complete Collection for PSP on: December 13, 2010, 01:34:16 PM
Boo freakin' ya! I'm so glad I held out! Now I can get it all in one UMD!=D This and Persona 2 are all I want for Xmas next year.
1289  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: December 13, 2010, 11:51:05 AM
I'm 15 episodes into Victory Gundam, and this has to be the most depressing show I've ever watched. Character deaths happen so frequently that I'm no longer surprised by them anymore, in fact they don't have much effect on me at all anymore. I even had to stop watching the "On our next episode" stuff because they started giving away who dies. It's still Gundam, and it's still a compelling watch, but I probably won't watch it as fervently as I've watched nearly every other show in the series.

I preferred Secret of Evermore, too. The allies were less of a hinderance, the places you went to were more interesting, and I greatly preferred the story over the flimsy one you get in SoM. Gameplaywise, though, I think SoM was better, but a balancing patch might change that.

Some of The sub quests in Strange Journey are very frustrating. I may have to look up the guide to find the black boxes.
Also started Morrowind but I never really even left town yet before I shut off. I'm not sure if I'm really in the mood for RPGs right now...but I better be, I'm getting 4 RPGs for Xmas!=P
