I kinda wanna do a Let's Play type thing for these new boards. Or a journal type affair ala Dice. I'm busy with a review game just now, and then I'm going to Germany on the 27th, so it'll have to be when I come back from that.

I find it easier to do a game that has a lot of stuff to pick on, but remains entertaining enough not to become a tedious chore.
You could do Venetica, it's both terrible and oddly charming. Nothing like talking to the same guy, with the same voice, that's a completely different person than the last three you met :)

Max: Free or paid?

If you're happy to throw a few dollars around, I'd recommend:

- Kingdom Rush & Kingdom Rush Frontiers: Fun tower defence titles with loads to do (optional extra missions, difficulties) and require a bit of brain power. Awesome production values, also.

- Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery: An unusual adventure game that is combat-lite and thought-provoking. Not for everyone, but I loved it.

- Joe Dever's Lone Wolf: More expensive, and it does get frustrating at times, but a fun gamebook/RPG that I've definitely enjoyed. Plenty to do and well-written.

- Aything made by Kairosoft. Game Dev Story is the cheaptest and one of the best. Fun and addictive strategy/simulation games.

- Rebuild: A post-apocalyptic zombie strategy game where you build up the fortifications of survivors and try to escape/defeat zombies/other optional endings. Strategy.

I've also heard good things about, but have not played Chaos Rings. Also, FF IV, V and VI are on there if you can get past the graphics.

Both free and commercial are fine, if the price is too hight I'll simply skip it but at the very least know what to look out for when it's on sale.
Funny thing is, I may have bough Rebuild last night as part of the humble mobile bundle, so I'll have to check it out.

I'm looking for an Android game that will keep me entertained during long trips. In other words I'm not looking for the type of game that I'll be playing during a short bus ride or on the toilet but rather a proper lengthy game to keep me occupied for several hours a pop.
Any genre goes though obviously RPGs are preferred, though bare in mind that I'm not a fan of touch controls on platformers, unless they're done exceptionally well.

Canada must be a fun place Dice (not being sarcastic by the way).

You skipped the "Users being ignored" statistic (Where did you get these stats from anyway?). I think my peak was 2, but I'm down to 1 again. I'm fairly sure it's CDFN after I said nasty things about Uncharted. Funny story, I actually think those games are pretty great now :) Just a guess though.

Took me a moment to realise what happened when I couldn't think my FFXIII thread.

So I think I'm not alone in saying I think threads like Maxx's FF13 playthrough, Dice's FF7 playthrough, and forgive-me-for-forgetting-who's FF6 playthrough have been some of the most entertaining threads we've had on these forums, plus they've generated lighthearted and fun discussions and debates.

Makes me feel bad about not updating for so long :(

Been buys with NS2: Combat recently.
It's about time I got back to my FFXIII playthrough.

Should be interesting how this turns out. I wonder if I'll be able to run it on my system. In fact, I think I'll go ahead and check the specs now.

Just a few more posts and I'll be bringing that 1000+ number up to a nice round 80

Managed to get some Mortal Kombat in last night. Decided to replay the story mode. Problem is that I'm too lazy to keep checking the moves list when characters rotate, so I just stick to the basic block, leg sweep, uppercut, jump kick shuffle plus any specials and combos I manage to find on my own. As a result, I probably wasted a lot more time on lost battles (especially since, in Mortal Kombat fashion, a lot of them are unfair and cheap). Not to say I'm not having any fun though. It's a great game and as a result I'm almost guaranteed to pick up both Injustice (eventually, and probably for the PC) and Mortal Kombat X (once it's out).
41  Media / Game Journals / Re: Maxx plays FFXIII - based on a true story [SPOILERS!] on: October 21, 2014, 07:33:31 AM
Its been a while since I made any updates. The reason is rather simple, I had no bloody time or motivation to play FFXIII (or much of anything else for that matter) :( Truth be told I'm getting to that thin line that, once crossed, means I'm not going back for years and when I do, its going to be a fresh start all over again. I've been down that road before (this is attempt #2). Hopefully I'll find the motivation soon because I do actually want to beat this game.
They say things pick up after about 20 hours. I'm about to hit that mark, so if anything, its worth another session or two just to find out if there's any truth to that statement.

Agreed, she's a great character. Very interesting and balances out the rest of the cast.

(That being said, I don't think the amount of a clothing character has necessarily makes them a better or worse character.)

I don't think this particular character would have worked as well if she was sporting giant cleavage and a thong. As long as the outfit matches the character, I'm fine with it. However, the amount of fan service in jRPGs has been off the scale in recent years to the point of being annoying.

To be honest, WA4 had one of the better endings.
It was a surprising mix of depressing and optimistic. Raquel was probably one of the high points of the game's story. A fully clothed, no nonsense powerhouse with some human weakness and mortality thrown in the mix.
Code:
The fact that by the end of the game there was no miracle cure for her illness and how her story ultimately ends was bitter sweet, but fitting

Beat Devil's attorney over the weekend, I was going to do a gamelog but couldn't bring myself to go through the hassle of writing on a phone with the added bonus of terrible internet. Besides, the game kept me entertained enough to pass the trip anyway.
Have two more endings to watch, and I'm more than happy to replay the game on a harder difficulty during my next trip.
45  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: October 17, 2014, 07:43:45 AM
Had no time to play all week. I am however going to spend about ten hours on a bus this weekend and just happen to have a copy of Devils Attorney on my tablet that I picked up for free from Humble.
For anyone interested it's at the bottom of the page: https://www.humblebundle.com/mobile
As such I'm tinkering with the idea of making another game log.
