I love Amalur for this:

I can't tell you how many times I've gone to pick a lock on a chest and the pick is in the right position to start. I don't have to do anything. Fucking hilarious and awesome since I hate lockpicking.

I needed a break from my more hardcore gaming so I downloaded Pushmo off of the 3DS eshop. This game is great! The puzzles are challenging, and overall it's a lot of fun. After I beat the main game I'll find puzzles to download online.

Still on Deus Ex HR, trying to max out praxis. I noticed when you get back to Detroit that most PC's have been re-locked.

Got the MGS HD Collection and so far been playing like 7+ hours of MGS2. Is great now that these games have trophies, but man I didn't remember some conversations being so long. But eh, part of the reason why I loves this series is for that... also, nanomachines.

I don't what it is about trophies.... in theory I think they are stupid... just plain silly and pointless really.... but I will be the first to admit to my elation when I earn one... why? well that is what I don't know I guess..... I love that it is linked to my facebook and everyone one of my clients whom have friended me to see my tattoo work get an aggravating update on their smart-phone of my latest digital accomplishment :)

Anyhoo.... finally at the end of Tales of Graces F, or so it seems... tying up loose ends and side-quests and whatnot... man, I gotta say, this game has not let me down at all yet... even the end-game-sidequesting is proving to be awesome fun and adequately challenging, yet not so much so that I have been tempted to look up one thing yet... just enough to keep me heavily engaged

In other news Final Fantasy Friday this week marked to procuring of two new eidolons in FF 4 CC. Asura and Leviathan and, might I add, they proved to be hella-difficult... I decided to fight asura first before getting reflect... dumb move....

Lastly I am currently in the process of attempting to thwart the extermination of our pointy eared friends in suikoden.... I forgot how amazing this game was...

I feel like I'm spoiling myself with great gaming lately, and it is lovely :)
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

Picked up a copy of Ogre Battle yesterday because there's just millions of those lying around where I live. Only did the first mission. Has an atmosphere that kind of reminds me of a Mana game. However the cursor controls are REALLLLLY slippery. Seems like I'll enjoy it, in any case.

I'm almost (I assume) finished episode 1 of The Walking Dead game and it's been fantastic so far. Other than that, I put Witcher 2 on hold for a bit not that I'm messing around with Aion. A pretty snazzy MMO and a nice change of pace from SW:TOR.

Got all 160 Fragments in FF13-Poo.  Got a chance to watch the secret ending, YouTubed it instead.  I really don't have the heart to continue the DLC superbosses... doesn't feel like there's a point in obtaining monsters when they're the cream of the crop.

Picked up FF9.  I love.  But I hate how this era of SquareSoft loved taking a good 5~10 seconds before any battle starts.  Steiner is the best.

Also tried Breath of Fire IV.  Why, oh why are the controls the way they are???  Having the 'Cancel' button as Triangle is seriously annoying to get used to when 99% of games have it as everything BUT that goddamn button.  Navigating screens is a bit of a chore to get used to since most of the time you're running in diagonals.  But, still, I like.

I tried playing Metal Gear Solid on PS1 about 2 years ago and this sort of thing had me trapped on the menu screen for a bit

Were you able to save Meryl without needing to use a turbo controller?
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I did. ._.'

And I'll probably do it again after I get MGS from PSN.

Finished Deus Ex hr on difficult, what a great game. Started Skyrim (again) and realized as long as i'm playing Blops that the 2 can't co-exist. Skyrim is just huge and I spend at least an hour on blops before rpg time. I've spent the 1st 2 hours of skyrim without leaving riverwood, just getting enough gold for the bow training. Skyrim is a game that you really need to spend time on imho. Oh, I shot darrow at point blank and didn't get EXP, hmmmm
