I think I saw a few RPGFan staff in line for Yuzo Koshiro autographs at MAGFest earlier this year, but I kept mum about it since it would be extremely creepy to address them along the lines of "hey, I think I've been lurking your website for years?"  I've been to every MAGFest since V in Charlottesville.  It's kind of my jam.

I'll finally be able to SAVE all my benjamins and move through my backlog more easily.

I slapped together my list pretty quickly.  5-10 minutes to come up with the games.  5-10 minutes for the first 6 or 7 haikus.  Then probably 20+ minutes for the last 3 or 4 haikus.  I had an empty window sitting there while I ate dinner for a little while. 

If someone made another topic like it today, my list would be different.  I'm fickle like that.  Right now I'm not sure if I should have put a Pokemon game on, whether I put down the right Zelda game, whether it was too soon to count Persona 4 (played it for the first time in January), whether I should've had SD3 or ToP over SoA or Disgaea, whether it was a dumb move to have two FF games on there or not, or what have you.  I have played a lot of games, and second-guessing for a list of favorites like this isn't worth it.

More Skyrim.  More meters rising.  Mostly Conjuration, Illusion, Enchanting, and Archery.  I should probably eat some dinner.

I'm kinda burned out on SMT stuff at the moment (two playthroughs of Persona 4 and one of Persona 3 in three months...), but I went and obtained a copy of the PSP version of Innocent Sin.  Gonna hit that up once I get sick of my regular backlog.

Alphabetical order so as not to rank them 1-10.  Each one gets a haiku.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Piles of secrets
Two castles, one up, one down
Metroid in Gothic


Chrono Trigger

No Dragonball jokes
It's the same artist, okay?
Good; now that's settled


Disgaea: Hour of Darkness

Such massive numbers
Require a letter K
To replace thousand


Final Fantasy VI

Twelve, separated
By ruin, are then united
By a ray of hope


Final Fantasy Tactics

A tale of two bros
One ambitious, one righteous
Plus, math magicians


The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

Third stage, Key Cavern
Has one more key than you need
...this bugged me for years


Mega Man X

My nostalgia pick
Armadillo's stage five times
Scores the Hadoken


Persona 4

Seven teenagers
And a bear, all insecure
Reach out to the truth

Portal 2

First, 'twas a triumph
Then potatoes, gels, and space
Now, she wants you gone


Skies of Arcadia

Eyepatch monocles!
Air currents and rolling clouds!
Explore! Discover!

Why are you trying to track down copies of Shadow Hearts, Xenoblade, and Suikoden II when you are unemployed and have to return games shortly after buying them? Or has your situation changed?

I beat Guacamelee!, then was disappointed by the Bad Ending (it's... bad).  To get the Good Ending, you need to find the five mask pieces in the Guacamelee! world and then beat the final boss again.  So far, not so bad. 

I got three of the mask pieces, but the fourth one is so brutally tricky that I got discouraged.  Yes, I could probably get it with a few more hours of play, but no, I don't want to invest any more hours of play.  It's rough.  I'm not Super Meat Boy-level in platforming skill.  So I'll stick with the Bad Ending.  Regrettably. 

Next I'll play Skyrim.  At least that's easy and satisfying.  (I like watching meters grow and numbers increase).

I ended up beating 16 backlogged games last year (ones from previous post).  Here's my current backlog status:

Current Backlog
Persona 4
Pokemon White Version 2
Hexyz Force
Psychonauts
Tales of Vesperia

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I got *really* slowed down this year by replays of Persona 3: FES and Persona 4: Regular.  I beat Vesperia... around 90 minutes ago.  Next I'll (finally) try to beat an Elder Scrolls game for the first time, and after that I don't know.  Probably something for the Gamecube or Wii. 
478  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mario & Luigi 4: Dream Team on: April 25, 2013, 06:36:39 PM
Mario is one of the best RPG series of all time.  I say this without irony.  SMRPG, the three PM games (four if you count SPM, but that's basically a platformer), and the three M&L games.  All excellent.  No duds in the bunch except... maybe Sticker Star?  But even then I'm not sure. 

But anyhow, Klyde, Thousand-Year Door is on the meaty side (~30 hours) and Superstar Saga is a little lighter (~20 hours).  Both are excellent, but I would say that TTYD is heavier in dialog and world-building while SSS is heavier on crazy platforming trickiness.  Both games are excellent in their own right, so I guess in the long run I'd recommend them both. 

BTW, when I plan out what games I want to play and would like to know how long or short a game is, this is a pretty good resource: http://www.howlongtobeat.com/.  I'm weird and I plan out my backlog in advance.  HLTB helps.

I'm excited for this, because I think Ratchet's silly humor and kinetic action is well-suited to an animated film and because I'm an unapologetic Ratchet fanboy.  Cautious Optimism. 
480  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Guacamelee, a new metroidvania beat-em-up on: April 23, 2013, 07:28:31 AM
I bought this and tried it out last night.  It's a blast.  Kinda simply-designed for a Metrovania (most if not all of the secret passages are visible on the stage map, with a color label depending on what special move is required to break through it), but the platforming and combat both have some neat tricks.  Definitely recommended.
