I decided to get it last night instead of waiting till today.  The game is friggin' awesomely fun, especially online.  It takes a bit of time getting used to the cover and fire mechanic but it's a lot more fun than i'd imagined.  It's also great sneaking up on someone online and cutting them to ribbons with the chainsaw or curb-stomping the bastards when they're down=D

It's nice when a game actually lives up to the hype.

I'm picking it up on Friday.  I honestly wasn't really psyched for this game all that much because the whole "taking cover" aspect always had me thinking of "Kill-Switch" or whatever the hell it was called on the PS2 a few years back and I really didn't care for that one.  But, after reading a few reviews on the game yesterday I'm looking forward to it just because pretty much every game site has been calling it the 360's must-have.
And I must say that it definitely is a sweet looking game in the graphics department..

I'm about 25 hours in and leaving the Ghiba(sp?)Village to go to the mountains.
Is it just me or did anyone else have to haul ass through the Ozmone plains or whatever because the mobs were stupid hard to beat..?

I'm probably going to spend an hour or so tonight just running around collecting loot to upgrade my weapons/armor before actually entering the next area.

Question:  Are each character's Mist attacks just randomly placed on their liscense board?  All my characters are around lv.21 and I still only have Ashe's Mist. It's starting to piss me off.

Okami -
Oh my god, FUCK that goddamn log! For the life of me I couldn't get the vines to attach to the log! I don't know what I was doing wrong, but I swear it took me around 15 tries to do it. ALMOST turned the game off.
I'm now running around the Taka Plains(or whatever it's called)
I'm still loving the game, but that LOG pissed me off.
 


Oh shit! Yeah, that was fucking ridiculous trying to fucking hook those vines to that thing.  My controller came close to being ground into dust after like 10 minutes of cursing and swearing at the damned T.V.  Probably THE most frustration in a game in quite some time.  I kept expecting to go over a waterfall or some shit but i eventually did it after 15 minutes or so..

Man, some of the boss fights are just brutal!   Most of my time is spent wandering the desert just to level and gather junk to sell because no matter what, you'll never have enough gil to buy everything you can use.

Don't get me wrong though, it's great to play a FF you can't  just plow through with ease.  

One thing i don't get though is the 'Mist' attack.. Apparently you have to mash the R2 button but nothing seems to happen when i do that...(?)

I'm just returning to the city after picking up Basch.  Only did 2 hunts so far but i'm doubting that i'm ready for the 3rd hunt just yet so i'm probably going to continue with the story tonight.

Btw, What's up with my characters healing like crazy even if my HP is NOT below 70% as I specified in the gambit??  Should I just move it down the priority list or something?

Holy Shit! This game is amazing.  I was expecting a lot but ..wow.  I didn't think anything would impress me this much after Okami but I'm glad I was wrong.  Everthything is extremely well done from the graphics to the music to perhaps THE best voice-acting i've ever heard in a game. I stayed up way too late playing last night and I paid for it at work today...

Well worth the wait!

?! It's as big as Christmas here in Canada and always has been.  I've been handing out tons of candy here in N.B. for the last 2 or 3 hours.  I was walking home from work around 5:30 when a couple of kids chucked an egg at me...I kinda taunted them to do it though:)  They missed me, thank God.  There one guy down the road here who had the sickest costume i've seen in years.  Best. Demon. Ever.   I really should have taken a picture but I didn't have a camera.

That list just makes me sad.  I can't afford ANYTHING lately.  I'm spending all my pay for the next 2 months on Christmas so the best I can do is rent maybe a game every week.  I just hope people remember to get me some of those titles this year.

I rented a copy after work today.  I'm handing out halloween candy at the moment but I'll be playing soon. It's going to be great:)

I probably won't be able to buy a copy any time soon though with X-mas shopping and all:(

Hey, Clueless, I can't find any of the 'wanted list' enemies either.  I'm like 25 hours into the game and getting ready to head out to the city but I've sill only found the 1 guy from way back when you first get that list.  I've been all over the place but I've never found any others.....(?)

Had absolutely nothing to do this weekend so I played quite a bit of Okami and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.  Marvel: UA is exactly as I expected it would be but it's still pretty cool kicking ass with my team of Wolverine, Iron Man, Silver Surfer and Spidey. Okami, of course, never fails to impress.
