I find it unusual that the most AMERICAN game ever was made in Japan.

Fuck yeah

Almost done with inFamous 2.  Gonna wrap up the story, then do some UGC grinding for trophies.  I think I'll 100% this one by tomorrow.

...from Index Corp and not Atlus. I'm sure they'll find a buyer soon. Marvelous and Square-Enix both make sense, but I won't place any bets.

Three more days!  My brain is ready....

I am 37 hours into Okami. I did not expect it to be this long.
It's not a slog exactly, but I'm ready for it to be done.

The endgame starts when you get to the snow country.
I would say that Okami has three central acts (starting area, Imperial province, snow country), and then an endgame where you enter the giant monolith-thing after beating the pair of bosses in the ice temple place.  But whatever. Semantics.  Game took me a good 40-45 hours when I played it last year. 

AnyHOW, still playing inFamous 2 and it's awesome.  Screwing around in Gas Works, still wary about trying UGC missions.  After this I'll either return to Knight of Lodis or fire up another PS3 game.

I think my favorite PS3-exclusive game is inFamous 2.  Is that... weird?  Whatever, this game rules.  This is my third playthrough, and I'm taking care to max out my powers for a few stray trophies.  I will try and do some UGC stuff later as well.  Very early in the Flood Town section (3rd of 4 "chapters" in inFamous 2).

HyperDuck is probably my favorite, but I also have lots of love for Danny Baranowsky. Three boss tracks from Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac:

The Ballad of Lil Slugger
Fast Track to Browntown
Divine Combat

I fucking love HyperDuck SoundWorks. Dust AET and Rain-Slick 4 are both brilliant soundtracks and ou can buy both on their loudr page! I'd link but doing that on my phone is a pain.

Sorry, no idea D. 

Best game intro cinematic ever: Into the Wilderness
(I'm sure it's already been posted, but this song deserves it)

Started a new game of Chrono Trigger a few nights ago to take a break from Knight of Lodis.  Gotta get ready for trivia next week :)

Good new recording, guys.  I think I'm going to add "Robert openly pines for a 3DS" to the list for the Rhythm Encounter Drinking Game rules.

I only read Bleach because I'm caught up and reading a new chapter takes 5 minutes of my week (plus I like crazy Spanish-German-Japanese wordplay).  It's not really one of my favorites anymore, but I'll keep up with it and see it through to the end; I could say the same for Naruto, HSDK, and Gantz.  At least Naruto seems to be moving towards a final confrontation. 

I really enjoy Beelzebub because of the comedy and because it takes the "juvenile delinquent with demon powers" bit to a pretty interesting place.  It's basically Yu Yu Hakusho but with more Dragon Quest jokes and a better cast.  And I actually like the current arc a lot, because they're finally back in high school fighting other super-delinquents nstead of screwing around with a giant army of forgettable demons.  Beelzebub is my favorite SJ title other than One Piece.  

And I agree that the first run of The Breaker is better, especially since Nine Arts Dragon is the most compelling character in either half, but I'm really, really happy with the recent developments.

Random Shounen Manga Journal Time! 

Bleach - I find the new explanation for Ichigo's powers convoluted and pulled straight out of Kubo's ass.  But because I'm a whore, I want to see what Ichigo can do with his new sword(s). 

The Breaker: New Waves - there's a reason this is one of my current favorite series.  It's extremely common to see a male MC struggle mightily like this, but Shioon is good at it.  I'm glad he's finally relevant again.

Kuroko - meh. Just more Kuroko being Kuroko and his teammates being depressing.  I want this flashback to end. 

Beelzebub - well damn.  They killed a guy and then created a 100% arbitrary reason for Main Character's Friends to beat the tar out of Current Villain's Friends.  I love shounen.

Knight of Lodis - I now have three summon spells.  Game-changing.  Now 100% of my strategies are going to be A) establish front line. B) set up my summoners. C) profit.

inFamous 2 - I beat this game two years with good karma, so now I'm running through with evil karma and doing some trophy hunting.  Chapter 12 (out of 40), not much beyond the tutorial stuff.  Thus far I prefer the good karma power branches except for grenades. Cluster bombs are great.

The more I hear about this game, the more I'd rather just replay Persona 3 or 4. 

...or maybe fire up Innocent Sin.  Because why not?
