Finished grinding supports for all Gen 1 to Gen 1 characters in Fire Emblem Awakening. Next up is going to be grinding out all the Gen 1 to Gen 2 conversations (and all Morgan (F) sibling conversations)...oh god that is going to be fun. I mean Lucina, Inigo, and Morgan (M) are done, but that still leaves a lot of repetitive conversations to grind. x_x.

If it's so tedious and repetitive grinding, then why do it? Doesn't sound like you'll be having any fun with it.

Found some time for gaming and beat Broken Sword 3.
The game was the spawn of consoles dominance over the gaming market at the time and Revolutions attempt at "getting with those times".
What we ended up with was a heavily watered down version of tomb raider with no action sequences, a focus on narrative, some point and click elements and a bajillion moving block puzzles.
All in all, it wasn't a bad game, just not quite what I've come to expect from the series.

A whole load of nothing. I did beat two tiny indie games ("Out There Somewhere" and "Morphopolis") in the past month, but both of these ware one maybe two hours long at best.

I tend to replay games from scratch if I put them down for too long but I do have one golden nugget of a game that comes to mind.
Riven.
Took me roughly 6 years after getting stuck. I probably restarted the game a few times along the way but, because of the rather specific way Riven is constructed, I consider the booklet I made, where I noted down everything I discovered about the game and its world, to be my true "save file".
So yeah, 6 years because I failed at

clicking on a door I came through to close it and reveal a passage
It made my jaw drop once I figured it out, couldn't quite believe I missed it.
Went on to pretty much blast through the game, because by that point I was a walking Riven encyclopedia.

Got cock-blocked on the paypal thing by my folks (they have my bank password, so at the mo. I'm at their mercy). >m< Oh well...sorry...

I know its probably none of my business, but your profile says you're 23. I get that you might still be financially dependant on the folks at this point, but it seems rather odd that they would have full control over your bank account.

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.
