Kup, I love it when you guys are swamping me with tons of great games. It means that there are lot of different games for me to explore so I'm not stuck on one for too long duration of time, i.e. WoW. I don't think I'll be rushing through each one of them, lol but we'll see what happen.

I'm getting the package soon so I'm excited about it. XD This is going to rock!

Silent Hill 2 (the best in the entire series if you ask me!)

QFT

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (also on Wii and PSP, supposedly very good.  I'm yet to play this one)

Go play it NOW. The story is great (especially since the game is divided between adventure segments and therapy sessions to keep things interesting). The ending is brilliant, but the game is relatively short. If you're a Silent Hill fan you shouldn't pass this one up. Just don't go into it expecting the usual mechanics.

Only problem is that Shattered Memories barely qualifies as a horror game. There wasn't a single scary moment and I certainly can't remember any gore.

It's all about the psychological story.

I know I mentioned this some time ago but never fully went into detail but here is a list of some Wii virtual console games that you should consider purchasing when you get the opportunity. As a side note you'll need a Wii USB Lan Adapter to get online and either a Gamecube controller or a classic controller to play classic games:

RPGs worth getting:

Secret of Mana
Breath of Fire II
Phantasy Star II
Phantasy Star IV

Non-RPGs worth getting:

Donkey Kong Country
Donkey Kong Country 2
Donkey Kong Country 3
Super Mario World
Super Mario Bros
Super Mario: Lost Levels (Don't get Super Mario 2 it's not the real Super Mario 2.)
Super Metroid

1 and 3 tie into each other heavily, but not so much with 2. Shattered Memories is also probably best either after 1 or after finding out roughly what happens in 1. I'm too much of a wimp though, so I never actually beat any but 2 and SM, the latter of which isn't really too scary actually.

FFX was the last game I rented from Blockbuster. I got it twice. Played it about 30-40 hours and then realized renting a game for 3-4 days for about 7 bux was dumb.

Never finished it.

I thought it ruled though.

Been playing FFX for couple of hours and I must say that I'm very impressed so far. I truly was very entertaining whole time and I felt very immersed in the story. Turn based combat was kinda confusing at beginning and I died at first mobs that I encounter because I have no idea what to do. But I manage to figure it out and learn how to use it. It's pretty interesting strategy for combat, which I like. Better than spamming the hotkey in MMOs. There was few moments in FFX where I genuinely was surprised and taken aback but that's what I like about it. The puzzle part in temple before I meet Yuna was kinda whack so I had to do a lot of trial and errors for it but I succeed.

Can't wait to beat this game. :D :D :D
