It really is, at least IMO. It's one of the few games where I've even enjoyed doing the side quests, and I love the story as well, solid game play, and the dialogue is fantastically sarcastic and biting.

Xenosaga I - Up to the part where I first see Jr. I really like Jr. and wish the game focused on him throughout. I'm really disliking Shion more this time around than I remember disliking her way back when. She is just such a poorly written character and I really hope they found a way to balance her out and make her less shitty in the next two games.

Ok, stopped enchanted arms and started Yakuza 3 even though i've finished 4. I'm actually enjoying it and it seems to be almost exactly the same engine used for 4? It amazes me how many Umbrella's are in the water in Okinawa :)

Nier for $20? It's $50 2nd hand here

Yeah I played through a lot of ep 2 before. Pretty much right up till the end of disc 1 I think. I remember a fight with Albedo. I barely remember the story though which is why I decided to start from ep 1. Just plan to run through it fast as I can. I have to say that I do remember it being a bit more difficult but maybe I'm still to early to tell.

I rented Dynasty Warriors 7 a day or two ago, and I have to say it's the same repetitive bullshit that all other Warriors games are, but for some reason I can't stop playing it. I'm probably gonna end up buying it for full price (possibly before NiER). I have no idea why I like this game so much, but at the same time I'm not gonna complain.

I just finished the stuff with Cave Johnson and the blue gel in chapter 7. How much more do I have left? Is it over 6 hours?
If it'll hold Jello, Utah will put Jello in it.

Chapter 8 is one of the longest. I don't know how much time it took me to complete, maybe around 6 hours, yeah.

Anyway, FFXII looks so good in HD I might end up playing through the whole thing again. Here are some snapshots I took just now:





Ashe is sexy.





I'm going to fire up ZOE2 to see how it looks. It's going to melt my face.

Do post some screenshot of ZoE2. That game never really aged graphically either.

This just in, Ashe's outfit still makes no fucking goddamn sense.

Btw, TitS question. Is it worth getting all the side-quests done, or can some of them like the hidden quest over at the second tower be skipped safely?
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I liked Ashe's outfit at first... not so much the "Squeenix size skirt", but it looks okay. Two things it tells me though: she has floppy titties, and she has thick thighs and ass.  Befitting of a princess who sits all day?  Design wise, the only thing that reallly bothers me is the weird high-sailor collar.  It just looks silly.

As for Tits, it's best to do Quests almost as soon as they come, they do become missable as the chapter goes on.  I think the only hidden quests I did were the ones at the school. =/  They were either too hidden for me, or I just stopped speaking to NPCs when the rest of the did enough chatting.
