I beat Professor Layton and the Curious Village.  Short game.  Mind you, at least theres plenty to do and still another two titles!! =)
Definitely a stand-out series,and thats probably my favorite aspect of the game.

Right now I have APOLLO JUSTICE.  Awesome title.  I have to say, the flow of the game is MUCH better than the previous titles, and the first case keeps you interested (so far).
Nice improvements since this is technically the first NDS title.  But Capcom got lazy with Paine and the Judge (they weren't redrawn)

Quote from: "superflat"
The side quests in Downtown LA have been "kill, kill, kill" with nothing in between.


Unfortunately those action heavy quests will start to pop up more and more and if you aren't fond of them, you may find yourself disappointed in the latter portion of the game. Don't forget to invest skillpoints in combat skills, otherwise you're going to spend a lot of time pressing quick load button. ;)

With all the faults it's still my all-time favourite game next to Silent Hill 2 and Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, thanks to the excellent atmosphere.

Well, I beat Devil May Cry 4.  While it doesn't even begin to hold a candle to the awesomeness of DMC3, it ended up being pretty good.  It just need more Dante...a lot more, because Nero's kinda one-dimensional when compared to Dante's multiple killing methods.

I'd play some more on the higher difficulties, but I've got the urge to play DMC1 instead. :P

I've been playing Metroid: Zero Mission.
I am enjoying this game quite a bit. Great 2D graphics, good music, Samus controls wonderfully, and the great Metroid level design. This game is EXACTLY what I needed right now.
I most recently got the ice beam, and am headed.......somewhere.

Aww.  We went to look for that today, but couldn't find it.  So we got Professor Layton instead.  :P

Also replaced our DS today.  Picked up a new crimson and black DS today, so I can finally start Phantom Hourglass after work.

FINALLY got to play me some more WA5.  This is seriously the slowest I've ever gone through playing a game, not by choice, but more so because life keeps getting in the way of me even touching games.  

Anyway, finished up the Mt. Chug Chug...finally figured out the deal with Nightburn who reminds me a lot of Gawn from WA4 actually.  The story really picked up after the events in Mt. Chug Chug, but now I'm at the point where there are some sidequests I can do, so I'm debating if I want to do them or continue with the main story.  That's what I HATE about sidequests, yes, they are optional, but for some reason I feel guilty if I don't do them...like I'm missing everything the game has to offer or I might need some of the rewards the quests offer later in the game.  Don't really have the time to do them, but chances are I will because of all that.  

Still a great game, really think it's worth more praise than it probably got.

I've been playing the crap out of Lost Odyssey. I'm only on Disc 1 still, 20 hours in (I know some people who have a 20 hour count and are on Disc 3). I'm absolutely loving it. It has easily surpassed all of my (high) expectations for it! The storytelling and character interactions are among the best that the genre has ever produced, and the Thousand Year Dream system is one of the best storytelling devices in the history of the medium. The combat is amazing so far. Since it's virtually impossible to level grind, the game always poses a fresh and balanced challenge, and the game is so strategic at times that it reminds me of a lite Strategy RPG! Overall, it's pretty much perfect so far. Sure, there are some minor technical quibbles here and there, but nothing off-putting, and everything it does well is so polished it's blinding!

Thus far I'd say that, given its history, it's no stretch to say that it is the RPG that all of the 3D Final Fantasies have strived (and failed for various reasons) to be.

Between this, and the upcoming Cry On and Tales of Vesperia, it looks like I'm all set for RPG greatness with the 360! :D

Beat the Human Campaign, but for some reason I'm having immense trouble with the first level of the Undead Campaign. I also tried the C&C3 demo again (prompted by 1up's reader's choice Strategy game of the year), but I still don't think I like it.

Well since superflat brought it up, I decided to reinstall Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines and play it again.  Its been hell, a year or more since I last played it.

If you have not yet superflat, I recommend trying out the fan made unnofficial patches after your finished with you current game.  Adds and changes alot of stuff, that in my opinion are for the better.  Of course last time I played it was like in the 2.0 range and now its in the 4.0 range so theres a bunch ill have to check out haha.

FFFFFFUUUUUUCCCCCCKKKKKK.

Phantom Hourglass is fucking awesome.  The gameplay is so simple and intuitive.  And I am in love with being able to write notes on my map.  Since I can't focus on anything for more than five minutes, this feature REALLY helps me on my way to wherever I'm going.

I also watched the missus play the first couple of puzzles in Professor Layton.  Good stuff.  The DS is a very highly entertaining system.  I already have plans to go and buy a few more games tonight.

Man, since parity, games are so fucking cheap.  I love it.  Forty four bucks for a handheld game is not good, but 29.99 is pretty decent.

My copy of DQVII is malfunctioning. So much for sticking to one game. :(

In lieu of DQVII, and in anticipation of Shiren DS, I'm resuming my playthrough of Torneko 2. I'm also looking into Ragnarok Online.

And my new laptop finally arrived! Now I can play something other than Akalabeth at a decent framerate!

I got Dungeon Explorer PSP in the mail. It's uninspired (of course), but promises some fun grindage. A few things irk me about it already (too much story, boring locations, leveling up your special techniques is underexplained), but it's a lot better than some of the other dungeon-crawl ilk I've played recently. Immediately, character customization reminds me a bit of Valhalla Knights where you can level up different classes and they are arranged into two tiers.

I'll talk more as I get deeper into it.

Well, all the dungeons are finished in Wind Waker. Now I get to do hours worth of fetch-questing for the Triforce. Major turn off.

Whoooooooooooooooo.

I grabbed Advance Wars: Days of Ruin and Apollo Justice after work.  :P  The missus and I are taking turns, her playing Apollo and me playing Advance Wars.  It's really the first AW game I've played and I have to say, I likes it.

Most importantly, the fact that the two female characters I have encountered so far have proper hair and none of this fucking anime bangs bullshit makes me shit my pants in delight.
