The thing that bothered me with Lost Odyssey was that battles were both long and horribly frequent.

At least with Persona 2 you could just spam fusion spells and have the battle over in at most 2 turns.

Too bad you have to use a guide to actually find fusion spells. Sorry, to me that's a sign of shitty game design.

Did a marathon reading all the Saga of Darren Shan books, and was very much satisfied with the series.

Recently reread the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini. A little derivative but half-decent nonetheless.

Bravely Default - I'm at the Command Center tower in Eternia, and I've pretty much managed to get away without switching classes for the game (I've mostly been using monk, white mage, black mage, and knight, although I've switched the last one to pirate recently).

Riviera: The Promised Land (PSP) - I'm somewhat pissed that I spent about an hour or so grinding to take on the boss of the submerged ruins and accidentally quit the game (since the quit screen for some reason randomly pops up on my PSP, which is a few years old), but I managed to get past the dungeon and have all available weapons mastered.

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World (PS3) - About an hour in and I've learned the basics of battle, which should be interesting throughout the game. I can live without an explorable world map since they tend to be unrealistic anyway, although the main hero is sort of whiny.

if that copy of Dawn of Sorrow I just bought was yours, I thank you kindly.

No problem ^_~

The more recent Mana titles haven't been great, so I can't say I'm excited.

Right now I have:

Time of the Transference by Alan Dean Foster

I'll constantly update this list until I run out of shipping material.

Finished the Infernal Devices and Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. Not a fan.

Beat Tales of Symphonia as part of Chronicles. Was impressed with the game despite the derivative plot. I'll start on Dawn of the New World eventually. Still working on Riviera: The Promised Land PSP and Bravely Default.

Beat Borderlands 2 Vita today, managed to deal whole lot of damage to the final boss without even entering his shield-protected area thanks to crags that put me up far enough, and I occasionally reloaded my ammo via the nearby vending machine. Was generally impressed with the game, with the only real disappointment being the soundtrack, or lack of, thereof, and I haven't played very many western RPGs that have had "good" soundtracks.

Still working my way through Riviera: The Promised land PSP, and I recently got a useful limit break for Ein from a story event.

On Tales of Symphonia PS3, I'm back at the Tower of Salvation in Tethe'alla working my way through the tree/ruins part.

Recently rescued the canary boys in Bravely Default.

Thanks ^_~

Both auctions have ended.

Beat Wild Arms 4. Liked it despite luck sometimes being necessary to win, especially against the final bosses.

I think I'm on the last mission in Borderlands 2 Vita, but I've had to grind since I'm having trouble against what I believe is the final boss.

In Welgaia in Tales of Symphonia PS3, and stuck, but GameFAQs will hopefully help. Not a sign of good game design, though, having to rely on a guide to get past parts in a game.

Got two elemental crystals in Bravely Default.

Started Riviera: The Promised Land PSP recently, and have been progressing smoothly despite slow battles.

Sanderson's Elantris is definitely one of my favorite standalone fantasy novels. Didn't care much for Wheel of Time or Mistborn, though, but I'm willing to give the latter another shot.

I actually sort of prefer FF8 to FF9 because Triple Triad>Tetra Master, and you can actually get some benefits from Triple Triad such as items from cards, whereas Tetra Master's shittily explained in-game FF9.
