The whole thing is two fights long, the first you have to repeat until you're a high enough level to finish it with a five-star rating. I don't recommend it unless you're slightly mad-in-the-head like me.

Yes, I'm still playing 999. I'm at the end, I think. Had a hard time with some of the puzzles in the cargo room. Had to Gamefaqs it.
Code:
I'm at the point where Seven talks about being a detective and saving kids from the previous nonary game. 
I imagine I have a few more nights to go.

Yay!  Seven finally has a point!  I like him too.
But yeah it sounds like you're en route to the end.  Hope you're enjoying it!


Ocarina of Time
Water Temple.  I love the ambiance of this place!!!!!!!!!!
Actually one of my favorite dungeon when you get the main trick if tries.
I also love the Dark Link fight.  His AI is interesting and I love beating the fuck out of him with a sledge hammer.

Currently at the final dungeon of FF XIII but before I end it, I am doing some sidequests in Grand Pulse. God I love walking around the Archylte Steppe, It's so peaceful and beautiful. 46 hours played.
Im also really surprised about something.. If I had ignored the sidequests I would not have gotten a lot of crucial background info on the world of FF XIII through the datalog entries called Analects or whatever they're called that you unlock.

Still plugging away at Assassin's Creed 2. 

... also started up The Walking Dead.  Currently pretty early in episode 2 (entire group is at the dairy farm), and I thiiink I know where this particular episode is going.  The mom at the farm gives me such a twisted Evil Paula Deen vibe that there is one obvious twist that's coming up soon, I think.

Bought Ys I & II Chronicles on Steam during the holiday sale, just started playing it today. Already super stuck on the first boss. Thinking I just have to walk back to Minea and get some better equipment.

Klutz, if you explore enough you'll find some stuff you can sell. You never actually need to grind in chronicles, like you did in the original Ys 1.

Eww, I hate the Water Temple. >.> It is just a miserable experience throughout. Mind you it is pretty, but I hate going through it. Dark Link fight is interesting though.

Well, to be fair, they made the 3DS version *slightly* easier through some "crafty tricks".
  • Iron Boots are an "Item" than a piece of "Equipment".  This makes swapping them much easier and less of a full "shift" in character playability.  This is important I think because before it felt like you played too often as "boot on" or "boots off" and creates a disconnect in how to play Link; this is vital because...
  • The most commonly missed key requires you to dive to a lower floor as the water is raised up to a higher level which may involve the boots on-and-off to reach it properly (because the game's "swimming mechanics" are shit/almost non-existent).  This is also kind of tough because it requires some "outside the box" thinking that may lean more to assume that you have to play the floor that matches the same level of water you raised it to.
  • Finally, the 3DS version does some "nice things".  I'm happy it doesn't change any of the actual dungeon, but the visual cues are more explicit.  Glowing markers tell you where each of the "waiter raising" panel are.  And also, the commonly missed key above is more explicitly shown early on in the dungeon because of how the camera pans (it's right above where you meet Princess Ruto)
It IS a tough dungeon, but played right you shouldn't have to visit the fancy water raising panels any more than twice.

I also fucked up the boss the right way.  He's a pain in the ass normally -- his attack mechanics and attack patterns are bizarre.  But you Longshot him and Longshot him until you trap it in a corner and you can kill him in one go.

I get surprisingly nervous with the day and nighttime cycle in this game.  It....bugs me that a day is like....5 minutes.  I don't know why.
Also, why is the Hyrule field so much more hazardous as a kid?  Why do the night-skeletons and evil-fucking-unstoppable-plant-monster go away when you get old as the rest of Hyrule turns to shit?

Otherwise, I feel like I appreciate this game more I play.  I've played it before (everyone basically has); but it really is a damn fine adventure.

Just finished FF XIIII. Fantastic game dont care what anyone says. It's now my 5/6th favourite FF game sharing those spots with FF IV.
Looking forward to playing XIII-2 but while searching for discussions on the ending of XIII I acidentally read that (XIII-2 SPOILERS)
Code:
Serah dies in XIII-2 IM SO MAD!!

Edit: Also the last boss wasnt that hard, sorry Blace cant agree with you. It's just a matter of healing at the right time and using the Sabouter and Synergist Paradigms correctly. And the last last boss is just go 2 ravagers 1 commander on that fucker and heal when needed, use dispelga to remove slows or quickly paradigm shift to commando-ravager-synergist.

I just finished Sora no Kiseki (Trails in the Sky) SC. The final chapter was nothing short of stunning. It was easily the best climax I've ever experienced in an RPG. The final boss deserves special mention. As well as the final boss music. (Definitely listen to it! But don't search for the last song by name; you'll encounter major spoilers in the first few results. The videos I linked are all safe though.)

So since I am a PS+ member I decided to check out DmC, Metro:  Last Light, Bioshock Infinite, and Brothers.  DmC is what I describe as MTV-ish.  It isn't a bad game, just not my cup of tea.   Metro is dark and hard as it requires aiming.  I didn't play BI, since I freaking spoiled myself looking up what ludonarrative dissonance is.  My bf seemed to like it though.

So basically I really posted to sing praises for Brothers.  It did something that games rarely do these days:  evoked feelings in me.  I am not talking feelings of fear or frustration which I experience a lot in gaming.  I am talking about the ones that linger with you long after you put the controller down.  It was such a beautiful game that I am going make my bf play start to finish.   It's for his own good.  :)

Same here. (I was hoping to have finished FC before you wrapped up SC. Drat.)

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.
