Gen eric posted up in the Neir thread that FFXIII was going to be $30 at kmart from 5/4-5/10. I check the website early this morning, and they're already claiming to be sold out. wtf? Don't have a frickin sale if you can't handle it, morons!
ugh.
Guess I'll continue to wait on getting this. Back to ME2...

edit! - No luck on the interwebsnet so I called a store near the office and found a copy. Last one, too. I figured I wouldn't be getting this for awhile, but for $30, you can't beat it. cool beans.

ME2 - About 35 hours in now, and while I'm still enjoying it, I'm ready to move on.
The damn planet scanning gets so monotonous. It's just too friggin' slow. Even with the upgraded scanner.
I did  Mordins and Grunts Loyalty missions. I still need to do Garrrus, Thane, and Samaras. I haven't recruited Tali yet either. Then there's that last blank character slot...

No Ys game counts as obscure.
I was quite into the turbografx back in the day, so most of my obscure games center around it.
I played and enjoyed both Exile I & II
Shape Shifter was interesting
Cosmic Fantasy 2 was the first(?) WD game. I actually played through it twice. I imagine If I played it now it would be total garbage. I still like how it ended, though.
I have an imported copy of Dracula X. Tough game with a kick ass ST.
And I swear I am the only one in the RPGfan community who ever mentions Dungeon Explorer II and it's incredible soundtrack. Can't believe you music people never mention it.

That sounds pretty neat. I loved the last two soundtracks. I remember the ultimate edition included that CD, but I'm probably gonna pass since I just don't have $100 for a game :P

I think it's been Devil May Cry 4 putting me in a (sorta)-heavy-metal-game-soundtrack-mood :P

But DMC4 had an awful soundtrack. Hopefully, it put you in the mood for GOOD metal. Great game, but the music sucked.

I also liked the STs for GoW I & II. More of the same brought to a higher level works for me. Can't wait to play this after I finish ME2.
2315  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: God of war III on: April 19, 2010, 05:08:47 PM
Lots of epic choral stuff? LOTR type stuff? I love that type of music, especially during big battles and such.
I can see this game being advertised with Metal, but not actually having it in the game. Wouldn't sound right with the whole Greek mythology thing.
2316  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: April 14, 2010, 10:22:49 AM
ME2 - Recruited Thane, who is too cool. 
I did some other stuff, then got sucked into investigating some Collector ship. I'm not terribly fond of how the game forces you to do the story missions with no time to prepare or do other things first. I have all sorts of places to go, but had to drop it all to do what the Illusive Man wants me to do. Kind of annoying.
Now that that's done, I have several loyalty missions to work on, planet scanning to do, and whatever else comes up. I'm in no hurry to move this along, as I'm enjoying it too much.
2317  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: So, Gears 3... on: April 14, 2010, 10:09:45 AM
It's a year away, so no. I enjoyed the first game, but have yet to play the second. I suppose this gives me plenty of time to do so.
2318  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: April 13, 2010, 02:53:59 PM
I'll probably go back and start with Eccleston, but the first disk is stuck on "long wait" on my BBonline Queue.
I DO think it would be better to have the history before watching the new stuff. I just know it will take me forEVER to watch all those episodes. At least there's only 13 per season, and not twenty something like American shows.
2319  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: My GOTY on: April 13, 2010, 02:40:28 PM
Bit early for this, eh?
I DO want to play HR. It's just not a priority.
Although I would say the same thing about Mass Effect 2.
2320  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Doctor Who on: April 12, 2010, 11:36:07 AM
I've been wanting to get into the whole Doctor Who thing for the longest time, but have never watched a single episode. Where should I start? I don't care about the really old stuff, but the new iterations look great. Can I jump on board with the new show, or should I watch the Eccleston/Tenant stuff first? Advice, please.
2321  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Finally, a game worth dusting my Wii off for... on: April 09, 2010, 02:47:22 PM
Eusis beat me to it. Unless the combat is unavoidable it is part of the game, and must be factored into any review/score. Clunky combat CAN ruin a game for some people.
I'm still intrigued by the game, and may pick it up if it ever goes cheap. Friggin' Wii games seem to take WAY longer to go down in price than 360/PS3 games, though. If ever. Case in point: Muramasa looks like fun, but I refuse to pay full price for it. Drop the price and I'll buy it.
Um...Fei? The majority of ANY systems games are mediocre or crap. The problem with the Wii is that some of us don't feel like wading through all the nonsense exercise/cooking/whatever games to find the rare gem. Heck, a lot of them I don't ever even hear about until they're already out and beyond.
Good Wii games exist. No one denies this. Good Wii games that appeal to ME are few and far between.
I watched my son play SMG. I LOVE the engine that game uses, but Mario just doesn't appeal to me. Someone should use that games engine to make a cool action/adventure game with a bit more mature subject matter. I'm not saying everything has to be blood and gore. I'd just like something that doesn't have me flying around in a bee costume or talking to penguins.

I hate to turn this into another anti-Wii thread, but I agree with Tenchis "dust off my Wii" statement. I've had for a few years now and NEVER play it, except for the occasional family Mario Kart match up.
I had high hopes for Fragile, but all the mediocre reviews turned me off.
I didn't play the first SMG, so I don't care much about the second.
I have high hopes for Other M, but am keeping them in check.
I still want to get the MP trilogy, but it's not a priority.
I may try out this Red Steel 2 some day, but not until it goes cheap.
There are very few games on the Wii that appeal to me, hence the dust. I hate having to wait for Nintendo to put out AAA titles.
Whatever. Back to kick ass stuff like ME2 and GoW III.
2323  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: April 06, 2010, 09:56:34 AM
My wife bought me God of War III for Easter, even though I told her not to. I just played the first 15 minutes or so, but am VERY impressed so far. The scale is just breathtaking. I look forward to playing this after I finish ME2.
Speaking of ME2 - I just recruited Samara. I don't like her character design at all. I expected someone a bit more...conservative? wizened? Not sure. Just not what I got. Look forward to using her in battle, though.
Next up is to find Thane, and do Miranda's side mission. Probably do some more planet scanning as well. Good times.

2324  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: April 01, 2010, 10:53:57 AM
Mass Effect 2 - OK, so now I'm getting tired of the scanning business. I bought the upgrade, but it's still a pretty slow process.
Had to pop in disc 2 last night. I only have 20gb hard drive, so disc 2 is not installed. Hope it runs ok off the disc.
I'm now looking for the second wave of party members, and have a few side quests from Miranda and Jacob to do.
I'm in Illium now. Love the backgrounds. I've always loved the Futuristic looking cities. Granted, the whole ME universe is futuristic by default, but they've done a great job adding individuality and artistry this time out.


I finally got around to finishing up ME2 today. What a great game. Easy as hell though.

I'm playing the game on "easy" mode, or whatever it's called, and am finding it still kind of challenging in spots. I generally suck at games that have me shooting at things without a lock on, so I pretty much HAVE to play on easy or not play at all.
2325  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: March 29, 2010, 10:29:07 AM
Mass Effect 2 - I am SO loving this game. It is just so much more polished and well put together than the first one. Everything is bigger and better. Except for the scaled down Citadel, which I actually don't mind too much.
I just finished the Krogan warlord quest.
Code:
I am informed that the Illusive man wants to see me, so I go do that. I didn't expect to get sent right into the next area! I didn't do anything with the Krogan yet! Damn. So now I'm on a new planet, with Collectors attacking it, and Ashley around somewhere. Should be fun 
I am already convinced that no other game I play this year will be better than this. No sense in hurrying through.
