Picked up Talisman on Humble and had a quick game. It's ok I guess... not crazy about the interface, and its kind of boring when you take the social element out.

I never liked games where I don't have full control over my party, but times change and maybe It won't bother me as much any more.
I still have Star Ocean 4, which I bought ages ago but somehow barely touched. Not that I have time to commit (and in some cases stomach) jRPGs any more, but I may be willing to give it a try if I ever find a gap big enough to fit SO4 in.
As for SO5..well...it looks very...anime.
Hopefully they won't go nuts with fanservice, which has been out of control ever since consoles got enough juice to render round objects in 3D and calculate jiggle physics.
Either way, I'm not planing on buying a next gen console just yet, and this is hardly the game to convince me otherwise.

Got into Infinite Crisis since it hit Steam a few days ago. It's actually pretty solid and good fun at my current level of experience (Gaslight Catwoman is a beast).

$16 isn't really a "steal" for an almost six year old game on PC (That isn't named Call of Duty). The only reason it might seem that way is because of the overinflated console game prices in comparison.
I've made my dislike for FFXIII fairly apparent over the years and even started documenting it in a game journal that I've yet to complete.
The only reason I would even contemplate getting FFXIII for PC is to stream it, and that's something I haven't been doing a lot of recently.
Can't see any other reason why I would possibly want to buy a game I'm not particularly fond of twice.

Same boat as Dice. Waiting for it to go on sale.

Finished "Finding Teddy" Last night. It took two sittings to beat it the first time but once you know what you're doing its actually pretty short so I ended up going through it two more times to do the optional and NG+ stuff.

Looks like it failed to reach it's goal. Too bad, it looks rather interesting. Here's hoping they make it anyway.

FFVIII had me both facepalming and jumping with excitement (what can I say, I was a kid). I never beat it though.
I was always an OCD (obsessive completion disorder, not the other OCD :) ) player and an item hoarder, but had this habit of doing what I called an "experimental" run where I would stop checking every nook and cranny, go nuts with item consumption and just power through the game to see what happens next. Problem is, I took it a little too far and ended up in the final castle which I never beat (I think that I rarely saved the experimental runs). After that, I just couldn't be bothered to pick up from where I left off.

Beat Empress of the Empress Of The Deep. Having a hard time forcing myself to play anything lately and started getting into casual games a lot more. Still have the urge to pick up my FFXIII log and wrap it up. I need to finish up the Breath of Death VII stream as well (though its not like anyone watched past the first episode anyway :P ). So many loose ends... Ah well, maybe this weekend...
If I ever do get through FFXIII I'll give Legend of the Dragoon a go. It's not a bad game but it has just enough wrong with it to make a grumpy playlog.

Say, did anyone wanna give me those "tips" to breaking FF8 that everyone talsk about?  I really wanna take a stab at it, and may do a journal on her one day...maybe. :/

A friend of mine who beat the steam version a while ago simply said "don't fight". Apparently, enemies scale with your level (even the big bad bosses) so if you avoid random encounters and just beef up your stats with junctions etc. you'll steamroll through most of the game. My memory is a little hazy on both the game mechanics and what he actually told me so take it with a grain of salt.

Just beat the Monty Python Killer Rabbit in the Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. For a game I didn't think much of when I got it (came with a humble) I have to say, its really bloody good and I'm loving the optional stuff.

Beat "Broken Sword 2: The Smoking Mirror - Remastered" today. It seems superior to the Directors Cut (in terms of remastering). It doesn't seem like they messed with the game content too much (if at all) and the comic book portraits are much better than the first games.
On to Broken Sword 3.

Other than the loading times (every random encounter has a loading screen...), the game was a return to form. It really is the closest you'll come to the original two games.

Game says I'm about half way through Smoking Mirror. I love the "feel" of the game even if the story does require me to adapt an "ok, lets just go with that" attitude at times. It's hardly enough to stop me from enjoying it though, especially since the overall presentation it top notch, even for a game its age.
