Carcassonne and Catan on XBLA, a bit of GTAIV, and lots of Rock Band. Finally beat the Drum Career on Hard. Fucking Run to the Hills.

Edit: Almost forgot, RezHD and Ikaruga demo. I tried to beat Area 3 in Rez, but the boss shat all over me. And Ikaruga is too hard to warrant a purchase.

Really? I enjoyed it. Gust struck a cord with me on that and Eternal Mana. I still have their other games in backlog and anticipating them.

Lately I've been playing a lot of Grandia. So much so that I wore my poor 8 year old PS1 out of commission, second one that broke on me too. Well, at least this one lasted longer than my first one. Though, I had to get a fucking 14.99 memory card adapter for my PS3 to transfer all my PS1 saves to it since my slim PS2 is freezing whenever it plays PS1 games. 15 bucks for a one time use... Other than Grandia, I've still been on P3: Fes Journey and Grandia III.

I like games where happily ever after isn't assumed, it's explained. Sure I beat the bad guy, everyone is happy and all but really after the end boss it's like 2 minutes of video and then nothing else, game over, roll credit, get a music player.

The actual game itself I have no qualms with but there's a couple other games that I've beaten that after doing so I'm just not satisfied.

Actually, they patched it so you can move files back and forth! It's useful now in case a game is running oddly on the PS3 or something so you move back to the PS1 or 2. In fact, unless Sony decided to be jackasses and bar copying PS2 saves to the PS2 BC-less PS3s we could use those as storage devices for all the PS2 saves and not have to worry about losing saves. Heck, someone had to have made a program to use that with a PC by now.

I won't really be doing much with my PS1 saves because, so far, the PS3 seems to have no problem playing PS1 games. At least it doesn't freeze like the slimline PS2s and I get the added bonus of wireless and upscaling. I guess the adapter seems less like a waste of money if I can move the files back and forth. I'll definitely be backing up my files every now and then to justify the purchase for myself.

I don't quite get why it's taking so long to get through the game. yes, I thought the game ended 10 hours than it actually did, but I have to be one of the slowest people to trek through an RPG and TotA took me 47 hours.

Grim Reality, I would say you're almost done storywise, but not at the pace you're playing.


ALL games take me forever to get through. I think I've been playing Abyss now for 6 months or so. I rarely, if ever, bother with side quests, and I generally don't spend excessive hours leveling(current lvls are at 56 or so). I really have no freakin idea where all the hours came from, but there they are.
FFXII took me around 110. DQVIII was 90 or so. Same with Dark Cloud 2.
Hell, even action games normally take me about double what other people say it takes them.
I wonder if its all the starting and stopping. Sometimes I'll play just a half hour at a time. Or play from one save point to the next.
Tis a mystery!

It must've been my experience with Tales of Symphonia that let me go through TotA, as I thought it was the easiest of the Tales I've played. And yeah, I played 4-7 hours at a time, as I hardly had any work that week....

Free run in Tales of the Abyss crippled the difficulty and made it wicked easy.
I actually found party members were more of a nuisance to revive on higher difficulties because taking care of them alone was more reliable.

Nevertheless, I love it.
Played the secret dungeon... not nearly as stimulating looking as the Symphonia secret dungeon, but the mid-boss is a pain in the ass.

Let's see...

P3-finished the moon s. link and i wasn't too impressed with it.  oh well.  i have like 4 days left until i'm finished with the game and i keep putting it off cuz i'm so bored with the tartarus, yet i think leveling a bit more will help me in the endgame.  so, i've really slowed my pace on this game.

ffx-rikku is finally in my party, yay!  i'm now dodging lightening..it's all good fun.  

summon night twin age- i took a week break or so from the game cuz i was getting a little bored with it.  started back up and now am on chapter 14.  the story kinda reminds me of arc the lad: twlight of the spirits a bit, except arc was a lot more enjoyable to play.

some whiny stuff from me.

I played through and very much enjoyed Symphonia. I think I recall it taking around 65 hours or so.
Also, in regards to Dices comment. I don't get why the free run makes the game easier. I don't even use it that much, because you have to hold the button down. Maybe I'm just clueless.

I downloaded Braid off Xbox Live last night, and Iím really enjoying it. The puzzles so far have been really clever, and the artwork is absolutely fucking beautiful. I didnít realise until I recently that it was all painted/drawn by artist David Hellman, who was behind a trippy little webcomic I quite liked called A Lesson Is Learned But The Damage Is Irreversible.

If youíve got a 360, I really recommend giving it a shot. And heck, even if you donít, give it a shot when it comes to the PC in a few months.

Comparing TotA to Symphonia, yeah, I thought TotA was a lot easier, as I rarely died, only one I remember is the one against the final boss. Basically, Free Run = Never get hit by spells.

Back on the GTAIV wagon. Just finished the second big decision.

Also, is Luminous Arc worth playing? I was thinking of picking it up, but I've heard mixed reviews.

Soloing in the multiplayer mode (as absurd as that sounds) in FFCC: Ring of Fates. This is one of the few games that almost makes me wish I had friends to play it with.
