@Maxx: Never heard of Romancing SaGa: Minstrel's Song and Emperors SaGa? They came out after Unlimited.

Nope

SaGa Frontier is to date the worst commercial jRPG I ever remember playing and that's coming from someone who owns Ephemeral Fantasia. SaGa Frontier 2 on the other hand was a great game. From what I understand Unlimited was terrible so now its time for a good one again (unless they released some titles in between that I don't know about).

Decided to stream some Dota 2 last night after not touching the game for a few months. Could have been worse, but it wasn't exactly a stellar performance.

Beat Five nights at Freddy's. I have the mobile version and let me tell you, dealing with jump scares while riding on a bus at night with some random person sitting next to me was...surprisingly easy. Oddly enough, the next day when I was the last one out of the office and making sure all the lights are off, I got a little creeped out.

Haven't recently had much time for gaming outside of long bus rides but I've been managing to get a race or two in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Now, the game is actually pretty good but "All star" is a bit of a stretch.
You know Sega is struggling to fill in the slots when you get "Football Manager" as a playable character in the opening lineup.

Every so often you guys will bring us news like "Game x is coming to PSN" or similar. It would be nice if you would standardised specifying the region that this news is applicable to since it's not always there. I get that the staff is mostly based in the US but you have a lot of European (like myself), Australian etc. readers that would benefit from the news being a little more specific regarding regions.

Shadow Warrior. Anyone who grew up with late 80's cartoons will like this game even before the first screen fades from black. The fact that the game is pure kick ass doesn't hurt either.

Ah FFT. I overleveled in that game (by abusing friendly fire and healing). Got to a point where I could beat story missions with Ramza alone, but got my entire team flattened by an obligatory "random" battle against scaled chockobos that I simply could not beat.
I did a similar thing in Vandal Hearts and screwed myself out of the secret ending. I found all the keys (no guide) but when it came to the orb missions my team would kill all the enemies and effectively end the map before I could get to the chest. I tried stripping them of all equipment, avoiding any fighting and making a dash for the orb but it didn't help because the golems would rush me down and get slaughtered by counter attacks.

Borderlands 2.
70+ hours logged so far and I still haven't seen the ending.

I just realised that the two most hardcore completionists (that I know of) on these boards are female. Take that gamer stereotypes! :)

Cecil's Class Job Change in Final Fantasy IV.

This one disappointed me. He went form bad ass Dark Knight to pretty boy blue eyed Paladin. At the very least he finally looked like a Cecil.

I'd have to take a while to recall some memorable gaming moments from my childhood since that's where most of them will probably be hiding.

Off the top of my head I'd say:
Realizing that I now have my own castle in Suikoden.
The Suikoden 2 opening with all the familiar faces (Lets just say I was pretty excited about finally getting my hands on that game).
Watching the Soul Blade intro, at the time it was pretty amazing.

since I now have a mouse with several dpi settings

You need to start playing LoL and Sion

I'ts been a while since I played LoL. I'm going to assume Sion isn't supposed to turn like that when he's rushing with his ult?

Had a cold, might have been the flue but I barely even acknowledge that I was sick so I'm sticking to the "it was just the common clod" option. I am NOT a fan of winter :/

Yeah. We got a shitload of snow yesterday and I've been working remote for two days now.
I don't want to go outside...

Technically its not even winter here yet and won't be for another month. I keep calling it winter because its cold, grey and 5pm feels like its the middle of the night. The only thing missing is snow, and I'm not looking forward to that one bit.
I used to love snow as a kid, funny how things change.

Decided to give Bioshock another go. I've been talking about streaming it for months but never got around to it. So, I finally do and about 15 minutes into the stream the game crashes and resets all my settings. This kind of pissed me off as I spent quite a bit of time trying to fix the horrid mouse sensitivity issues by tinkering with several config ini files.
Let me put it this way, the PC port is less than stellar.
I decided to give it another go, this time without any config tweaks, since I now have a mouse with several dpi settings that can somewhat counter the issue of insane speed and acceleration when dropped to the lowest dpi setting. So far so good.

Don't watch if you get freaked out by spiders or cows.
