Just beat Kid Icarus Uprising. Best 3DS game by far.

ME3 - It's amazing how much time I spend simply wandering around talking to people, and doing sidequesty stuff. I can go a few play sessions without ever shooting anything. Good thing the game rewards you for it.
I'm about to go shoot things with some Krogan dudes. Should be fun.

I found copies of Koudelka and Growlanser Generations for relatively cheap today. I'm happy.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

I'm jealous of that cheap copy of Koudelka.  It's one prominent missing piece in my PS1 collection. 

I'm still playing Wind Waker, Star Ocean 2, and Sword & Sworcery. I've hit snags in the latter two (8 days until the Dark Moon...), but I'm enjoying Wind Waker so much that I sort of want to revisit Phantom Hourglass. That's probably a sign of me finally losing my mind.

Played 40 minutes of Xenoblade just to try it out and so far it seems great. Looking forward to spending some quality time with it later.

That's the best I could find for you. It's not a terrible price.

Tried the demo of Skullgirls.

The character select screen reminded me a lot from the one of the original Marvel vs. Capcom. That said I'm gonna bought the game as soon as I can, been waiting for this one for a long time now.

Natalia stayed away from the battlefield almost the entire game (anyone actually use her?).

She's popular with the people playing a Tales game for the first time over at Ngamer.nl. They use her for shoot and run tactics when fighting tough (but kinda slow) story bosses.

Around 10 hours total into Xenoblade and still loving it. Also playing the original DMC on the HD collection. Still balls hard:/

While I'm not sure if I'm going to purchase it, it's indeed a gorgeous game.  I was never a fan of the animations and look until I loaded up the demo and saw everything in action on a HDTV in full-res.  Very nice looking and it gave me a good vibe.  I just hope the small roster doesn't hold it back.  Considering it can be a team based game like Marvel, I could see some people being unhappy about the limited character choices.

I don't really have a problem with the roster being small. Hell, I think in a way a small roster can make for a more focused experience and not so crazy and unbalanced like has happen before with other fighting games.

That said, I'm enjoying the music a lot. Yamane did a great job with the soundtrack.

Got hammered and tore through some shit in DQIV last night. I like how easy this thing is to pick up and put down. Like, if I want to really dig into over the course of a few days I can and if I forget about it for a week or so, I don't suffer.
