Started up Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. Wow! I wasn't expecting it to be so...frenetic. This is just pure action carnage with some platforming tossed in for good measure. Fun stuff! It's been a LONG time since I've played a game like this, though. We'll see how long it takes before I either get bored, or it gets too hard.

Chrono Trigger -- finally fought the first hard boss; the dual golems at the sea palace.  Yikes.  Only because I cam prepared was why I won too. x_x
The Lost Santum is... interesting. Left early on.
Robo, Ayla, and Crono are mah bitches.

Robo is a fucking juggernaut and Ayla can dish out the pain as well. Nothing needs to be said about the awesomeness of Chrono.

Ayla at max level is just plain broken and I love it.

I need to find a game like this on the 360. I had a lot of fun with the Ratchet games, and the Jak games. It's been a while since I played an action/platforming game. Are there any good ones on the 360?

Quick Chrono Question then.... do Magic Tabs even matter for Rob and Ayla?

Doing the sidequest onslaught and loving it.  Magus has "subbed in" for Chrono a bit.  He's got a gold stud-- nuff said.

I really dig both Enslaved (more action-y) and Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom (more adventure-y).  Both should be pretty inexpensive at this point.

Robo: Cure Beam, Laser Spin, Heal Beam and Shock (maybe Area Bomb too, no idea, never used that one much)
Ayla: kiss (still, a 999 kiss at max magic)

Maxing Robo's magic makes him one crazy healer.

Beat Demon's Souls and now I'm working on the new game +. Dying way more than I did in the first run. I guess I'll just keep playing until Dark Souls comes and then drop it.

I think I played R&C3 on the PS2 but I gave up pretty early on because I thought it was pretty slow and the attempts at humor were like NOT QUITE the nadir of Peter Molyneux but goddamn they were trying.

I found that Vesperia has a reasonably complex battle system when you understand the artes and combos, In fact I almost started again. Then again, you could button mash, but thats no fun. Tales of Graces in English on anything? Got the wii Japanese version for pretty cheap

Given that Robo's magic is designed to be somewhat comparable to everyone else's magic despite his abysmal Magic stat; it stands to reason that cranking it up to max would make his already naturally powerful magic monstrous.

Ayla less so.

Also if you can bear with it, you never need to give Robo even one Speed Tab since completing his special sidequest near the end of the game gives him a stat boost to Speed and M. Def.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Man, I remember New Game+ing CT so many times everyone's stats eventually turned into stars.

Started the first Uncharted on hard. I'm like 45 minutes in. Not bad.

True Story: I suck at Ultima 8. I checked a walkthrough because I was stuck.

The solution to my problem was "keep going east till you find the damn stairs."

Devil Survivor End of Day 6 Spoilers:

Code: [Select]
Beat Belial on my first try. It took me 6 tries for Beldr, but I guess being able to use all your party members instead of JUST ONE GUY kinda helps. Just spammed ice attacks mostly and didn't worry about his cronies. According to the little bit I've looked at in guides, I'm going for Gin's path. Really interested to see where this goes.
