^ It's moronic and leads to delays, but because Squeenix is publicly traded and announcing AAA games drives up investment.  So there is incentive for them to get the word out on projects as soon as possible in order to bring in more cash.

these poor forums =(

I hate that it's such a dying medium.  Especially because we have such a great group here (yes, even Frostillicus!)...

1) Doom and Destiny -  stop #1 on my "Xbox360 Retirement Tour" was stupid and rote and most of the jokes were offensive.  Oh well. On to the next one.
2) Shank - Another XBLA game I blew right through.  I'm trying to retire my 360 so that means slogging through shitty, overly violent platformers like this one before I finally play Dark Souls.
3) Guardian Heroes - XBLA
4) Half Life 2 - XBLA
5) Breath of Death VII - XBLA
6) Cthulhu Saves the World - XBLA
7) Sequence - XBLA
8) Panzer Dragoon Orta - Xbox
9) Castlevania Chronicles - Vita
10) Tales of Vesperia - 360 - 57 hours. Great game, 2nd best tales after Eternia. But the real story is that I finally get to chuck my old and busted Xbox 360.

new
11) Gravity Rush - a competent game in a fascinating setting.  Wasn't everything it could have been but definitely gets high marks for taking some chances.
12) Skies of Arcadia - 59 hours.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time with this game.  Though I don't really have anything to say about it that hasn't been said ad nauseum before (great setting, fantastic cast, loads to discover, but way too many goddamn random battles,even with the white map. when all you want to do is explore...)

I mean, you could just increase the ratio of grounds to water...

with pour over, if you do that you end up with a bunch of coffee sediment in your cup...

^ this

wake up early on a Saturday. Wife still in bed. Make a pot of coffee and play some RPGs until she finally scrapes herself back into existence around 1030.

Then make some breakfast.

Best possible use of a weekend.

CRAWLING along near the end of Skies of Arcadia.  About to fight Galcian, I think. 

My new job has more or less halved my available free time.

^ have you played any of the other DQ games? (I'm assuming you have since you play everything)

the weakness system isn't as important as in a lot of other games.  I'm 80% of the way through the game and I think it's only been a real issue once.

Sorry @Rucks , but I do believe I mentioned that it bored me to death.  However, that was after giving it like.... 2 hours?  Maybe slightly less.

I still want to play it again now that my attention span has evened out in my old age.  But I'm not sure what the best way to do that is.

If you still have your Wii, I will send it to you when I'm done.  I bought it off @Frostillicus (he gave me a helluva deal, tbh) and I'm sure he'd want me to do the same.

@Arvis I have no idea why you passed on Skies of Arcadia... it's fantastic and fun as hell and won't offend your sensibilities.

Give it a runout once you're done with DQXI (if you still have the means)

no the screenshots look great. I was just hoping they'd look the same on my switch!
