Crizmon Clover - Did practice mode on Stage 2 a bit. Novice mode feels easy after screwing around with Arcade mode :P. Getting better at this though I wish I had the option to use a SLIGHTLY slower ship. I think I had a similar problem with the Raiden Fighters games, where the faster ships were sort of fiddly to me.
Asscreed 2 - Played this a bit more. Still think it feels kind of gross for some reason, buuuuuut it also feels REALLY Gothic-y, which I definitely like. I wanna spend more time with this.
SLD - ... That's a convenient abbreviation ANYWAY. Messed around in Rosaria. I'll have to check out Whisper of A Rose sometime -- didn't realize that this was sort of a sequel to that.
I haven't actually played many RPGMaker XP/VXA era games -- Yume Nikki, OFF, and Space Funeral were all 2K3, afaik. Hell even Ahrmian's Prophecy was from what I remember, and I don't know HOW they did the stuff they did in that game.
Clive Barker's Undying - Played this for like an hour. I don't think it's for me. I got two crashes during that time -- one a hard crash from some D3D error, the other was a cutscene... failing to start, which wasn't... good. It has things that amount to being instant-death traps with little warning as to what they are (Chandelier falls on you as a literal instant death trap. Then there's instances where enemies spawn in low visibility areas where they're hard to avoid). Levels do... not feel explorable. When you get hit, the screen shakes a lot which isn't fun. Also the way the enemies move feels like it'd work fine in something like Serious Sam, with open levels, but not the really claustrophobic levels this has.
Soooo it's June 15th. I feel like I should construct a list of summery feeling games that I should force myself to play. What I'm looking at so far:
Suikoden 3, Ultima 5, Sweet Lily Dreams, River of Time, and... probably LoM since I need to test my mod.
And contingent on me arsing myself into getting a 360... Vesperia. Or if I end up with a PSP, probably VC2 idk I'm a consumer whore, help.
Tropico, Vice City, something X-Com, and AI Wars. Or Distant Worlds whenever the patch barrage stops on that.
I'm also toying with the idea of, every Friday, just picking something short from my Steam or Gamersgate library and just shotgunning it until I finish it or get bored.
