I rolled a few dice to determine which game from my backlog list I would play next; got Vagrant Story.  Let's see how this goes....

Mark of the Ninja is pretty good.  2D stealth is better than 3D stealth, I've discovered.

I have a digital copy of TO that's been sitting around unplayed for at least four or five months.  Once I get a Vita (this fall, probably) that'll be one of the first things that breaks it in.  After Persona 4G and Ys Celceta.  

Right now I'm in the final chapter of The Walking Dead.  This one seems faster-paced and more direct than earlier chapters, so there's slightly more urgency in every scene, but... I dunno.  I miss the lost characters.  My final group is four people (including Lee) but I wish there were a few more for banter.  Still love this **** to death - it's making me re-examine Telltale's entire catalog and consider blowing money on Season 2.

I ACC referring to Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, but I think my point stands - the GC's RPG selection was seriously lacking compared to that of the PS2.

In case I didn't make it clear, Phantasia is my favorite game in the series.  Second is Vesperia, third is either Eternia, Abyss, or Xillia.  Those are my top five.  Those five games are why I'm a Tales Of fan, pretty much (although I haven't quite finished Xillia).  Symphonia and Legendia are... okay.  They each have their strengths and weaknesses.  I liked Legendia's characters and their development in the second half of the game, but JAYZUS having to replay so many dungeons and having such unforgiving event flagging.... that's rough. 

Symphonia does a lot of things very well, but oh man is it rote.  Everything in it seemed like a recycled part from Eternia or Phantasia, and none of the characters really did it for me.  Maybe I was in a weird zeitgeist, but I always felt that it was so popular because the GameCube was starved for RPGs.  I don't even think it was the best RPG for the GameCube that came out in 2004. 

Tales of Destiny for the PS1 is my least-favorite game in the series.  The characters don't seem that bad, but the combat was so slow and the dungeon crawls so unimpressive that I couldn't even finish it.  I've heard that the PS2, PSP, and second PS2 remakes are good, but I haven't had the opportunity to play them.  All I know is the crappy PS1 game. 

Tales of Innocence.  Man.  That game sure loves item hunts.  I'll go back to that game eventually, when I have thirty hours and feel like doing random battles in soulless dungeons for hours and hours.

Gat Damn, chapter 4 of Telltale's The Walking Dead.  Wow.  Hell of a setup.  I'm glad I've been spoiled in a way (I saw a few gaming news headlines when they revealed the main character of Season 2).  That spoiler is comforting.  THAT character survives to the next part.

Phantasia was my first, and might still be my favorite.  Dice's commentary on it is 100% right.  Lady knows her Tales Of.

I liked ToS well enough, but when am I going to want to replay it, when my backlog is already ABSURD and there are new games I want coming out every month?  I'm guessing either never or not for a few more years.  I can wait awhile to pick this up.  It will still be around.

Earlier tonight I played some Adventure Time Card Wars and DC Comics Deck-Building Game: Heroes Unite.  Heroes Unite is probably better than the original - card types are more balanced, Supervillains are stronger, and there are fewer Batman and Justice League cards with more Green Lantern, Birds of Prey, and Teen Titans.  Card Wars is decent, with a lineage closer to Magic or YuGiOh than most CCGs.  Cornfields deck is baller.

Right when you think a horse is going to be with you forever, it abandons you. 

Exhibit A
Exhibit B (this one is unfair, and kind of a spoiler)
Exhibit C

Moral of the story: don't trust a horse.

One of my favorite VGM pieces of all time has received a very nifty remix.  Stickerbrush Symphony, originally in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest; new version is from the recent Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.  Here it is, four ways:

DKC2 original
Tropical Freeze remix
SSBB remix
Smooth McGroove version

Vagrant Story, simply because after Xenosaga Episode I you're going to want to go straight to II and III, and DDS2 after DDS1.
Um, is that because DDS1 ends on a cliffhanger, or because it's so good?  I've heard that both are excellent, but I next to no idea about the plot of either game or how the first transitions into the second.

Telltale's The Walking Dead - near the end of Chapter 4.  The stranger = hell of a great villain gimmick.  I'm on the edge of my fuckin' seat.  Probably will beat this game in the next few days. 

Mark of the Ninja - this game is pretty good.  I'm not blown away or thinking about this game when I'm not playing (which is the biggest indicator of whether I'm really hooked or not), but it is totally all right.

I'm already trying to figure out what game to play next, and I'm leaning towards hitting up my PS1/PS2 backlog.  Maybe the first Digital Devil Saga, maybe the first Xenosaga, maybe Vagrant Story.  Any suggestions between those three?

I would love to play this game, but I'm trying to keep purchases to a minimum for the next several months, so I can afford a 3DS or a Vita later this year. 

...but if I had the dough to spare, I'd totally get it.  I love South Park, and this game looks like a hoot.

I finished Dust: An Elysian Tail yesterday and Assassin's Creed 2 four or five nights ago, so I'm moving on.  Somewhere near the end of Episode of Tell-Tale's The Walking Dead (obvious twist in episode 2, but pulled off really well) and messing around in a third (!?) playthrough of Persona 3.  P3P, female MC, mid-September.  Shinjiro's quite the charmer in his Social Link.
