Ginga Force - Tried score attack, wasn't immediately taken with it, started story mode, became VERY taken with it. Only downside is the translation I found is missing some of the dialogue, although... it's good enough for figuring out what's going on. It's not really a super story-heavy game anyway.
I do wish Play Asia would update to say that the Wonder Price version is region free as well :T
Anyway, Qute's resolved whatever misgiving's I had about getting a 360 (except for maybe that super grody dashboard wtffffffff). I'm also surprised how much hiragana I still remember.
Lotad - Just got to Zeiss. I was... going to do some guild quests but I got distracted and I guess I'm gonna clear out Carnelia tower before I do anything else.
By the way, is it normal to hit a point where some of the enemies just start getting two moves for every one of mine? It... feels sort of random and based on the initial turn order.
Also wrt more RNG weirdness, Soul Spear seems to instakill about 50% of the time at least, and I've not managed to get any of the other 20% chance special effects to trigger more than, uh... I got Hell Gate to faint a monster /once/.
Also I was going to get on at like 2AM last night and say that Lotad was giving me weird dreams, because you have a character you control and other characters following them. I have no idea why this is giving me weird dreams.

Survival-wise, had a really good run in Eschatos. Got to level 15 before dying (after wasting a bunch of continues right before that hrrr). CANNOT keep a multiplier going in the second set of areas at all, though.
Still this game is not stressful. This game is, like, happy. Crimzon Clover is like OH GOD CAN'T DO THIS. Eschatos is like hugs and sunshine.
