My bad.  I posited it was a Tim Rogers article because I know he posted a big Skyward Sword thing around a year ago that sounded like what MGF described. 

And here's my final "list of games beaten in 2012" ->

1. Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
2. Radiant Historia
3. Mass Effect
4. Mass Effect 2
5. Breath of Death VII: The Beginning (Hard mode)
6. Grandia II
7. On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness - Episode 2
8. Mass Effect 3
9. Journey
10. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
11. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP
12. Star Ocean: Second Evolution
13. Red Dead Redemption
14. On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3
15. Persona 3 FES
16. Final Fantasy XII
17. DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue
18. Super Mario Galaxy
19. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
20. Fire Emblem: Fuuin no Tsurugi
21. Torchlight II
22. Rogue Galaxy
23. Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana
24. Okami
25. Civilization V: Gods & Kings
26. Valkyria Chronicles

Good year.  Didn't beat as many games as 2011 (total was 46-50 depending on how you feel about replays and fighting games), but I got a couple of big titles crossed off the ol' backlog.

Read an almost-interesting article on Zelda at Kotaku last night. It had some good points but devolved too much into the writer being an Old-Guard gamer who wanted Zelda to remain a hardcore series and damn the unwashed masses causing it to be dumbed down.
Was that one of Tim Rogers' big ramble-rants?  Because that guy is kind of a turd who lives for giving a few good points amidst a sea of nonsense.  He's the worst. 

Anyhow, I've been sick at home for a few days, which means a LOT of Persona 4.  I made it to the endboss of Void Quest, but then died hard (main was at level 39, everyone else level 36-38).  Level grinding now up to at least level 42.

OK, I like Persona 4 a lot.  It's Persona 3 with less bullshit (re: Tartarus) and heavier character arcs.  I am 100% okay with this.  I'm right in front of the boss of the Steamy Bathhouse dungeon, but I need to level grind a little bit for it since I kinda rushed through it all.

My team won earlier today and my dad's team is looking pretty good right now!  Footbrawl!

I originally planned to beat Valkyria Chronicles before 2013 happened, but alas 'twas not to be.  I'm on episode 14 out of 18 and company is coming over soon.  It'll be my first finished game of 2013.

Just finished Chapter 10 of Valkyria Chronicles.  Awesome stuff.  I leveled up two classes up to Elite and now I can use flamethrowers!?  This game just gets better and better! 

I'm leaving for a wedding in a few hours, and I won't be back until Sunday night.  That gives me two days (including one work day) to finish this game before the new year.  That's gonna be lots of videogames.  I can do this.

Django Unchained is violent, absurd, full of racism, discomforting, and breathtakingly awesome.

Playing Valkyria Chronicles and Persona 4 (regular-ass Persona 4 on the PS2).  Loving both of them.  Gonna try and beat VC before the new year (on mission 7... not sure if I can....) and Persona 4 sometime in January.  Gonna be a nice few months of gaming. 

Pokemon White 2 is on hold until MAGFest in a few weeks.  Got a few online pals that want to trade-battle in person.  Still zipping through the game with Excadrill, Haxorus, a baby Deino and that's about it.  Love those first two.  Reuniclus was put on hold so Haxorus could rip through the last two dungeons.  Serperior got benched shortly after evolving.

C. Platformers..... PLATFORMERS ROCK!!! I am still loving Ratchet and Clank a Crack in Time
I'm glad you're enjoying Crack in Time.  I've already made my Ratchet & Clank love evident, so I'll just give you an internet high-five and go back to playing Pokeymans.

It's pretty good!  Bosses have interesting patterns and are modeled after their most recent movesets - Blanka uses all three types of Beast Rolls, electricity, and an electric roll, for example.  Each boss also has a super meter and super combo that can really **** you up if you aren't careful.  Using Blanka as an example again, he electrifies the entire floor (like his Ultra 2 in SF4 AE), then throws four watermelons, then Beast Rolls through the watermelons.  That's the kind of game this is.

Demolishing Pokemon White 2 with a team of Fraxure, Excadrill, and... that's the list.  Just got the 8th badge, now about to challenge Team I stopped using the starters after they evolved to their final forms.  I've been keeping Deino around with a permanent Exp. Share, but right now it isn't quite battle-ready.  Also have a Watchog and a Ducklett around as HM slaves. 

I'm trying to use Gen 5 pokemon exclusively so I can get a taste of what's new (sorry, Riolu that I used for the first Gym).  I want to round out my party out to four eventually, so I'm open to trying out some new pokes.  Recently caught a Mienfoo, also thinking about training up a Timburr or a Tynamo that I caught ages ago.  I could use some Fighting or Electric coverage.

Dragon Quest VIII HD. PS3 and Vita. Make it happen, Square-Enix. You know, after you make that FF X HD that allegedly still exists.

Got Pokemon White 2 as an early Christmas gift this weekend - I haven't played any of the 5th-gen Pokemon games yet.  Shortly after getting the game, myself and two friends had a "let's sit around and trade Pokemon" party and now I have all three starters, a Deino, a Gothita, a Vullaby, and and DURANT.  All of them are level 1 babies bred by my one particular Pokemon-obsessed friend, and are either un-catchable in White 2 or unavailable until the post-game.  Mostly I wanted a Pokemon named DURANT. 

...I don't know if I'll go whole hog into White 2 the same way I did into Diamond (Pokedex around 470-475, decent EV-trained Sandstorm stall team), but I'll definitely play it like a normal RPG and check out the new Pokemon in the new generation.  So far I haven't caught anything particularly cool (only 2 badges in), but I like a lot of the small surface changes that the game has made. 

Edit: I should mention that after the game was gifted to me, one if my friends INSISTED that I use Durant and a second Pokemon that I won't name. Durant because my friend and I both love basketball, and the second Pokemon because it is almost EXACTLY my last name. Seriously, remove one letter and it's my name exactly. Paul said: "man you have to use ____." Your name is right there!" Turns out it's a pretty good Pokemon once it evolves and I can catch it without much trouble. So why not?

Silver Linings Playbook was pretty good.  Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence is some pretty people - lots of unexpected gratuitous shots of miss Lawrence's... assets.  Only problem is that the film portrays fans of the Philadelphia Eagles as human beings.

Beat Civ V as Ethiopia in one sitting.  Prince difficulty.  Cultural victory.  Four cities.  Never touched coal, aluminum, or oil.  Never researched nukes.  Ethiopia's good at faith/culture and defending the homefront.  Now I need sleep.
