Darksiders 2 continues to be fun, But I wonder why I've heard no one complain about the terrible control scheme for the L3 stick. And you can't change it! I wonder if it's the same way on the 360.
Thing is, the L3 stick controls movement(of course), but it also brings up the item menu when pressed down at an angle. This is HORRIBLE, as in the heat of battle you're swinging the stick around all over. The stupid menu has popped up on numerous occasions, interfering with battles, and even causing items to be used that I didn't want to use! This could be easily solved if they had just allowed for button configuration. All games should allow this.

MotS - Reloaded because I went to the completely wrong place, not knowing where the lake was. Whups. Back to the lake, now.

Grow2 - Got Riviera.

Persona 4 NG+ - I maxed all of the Social Links in late November except for the three story links, and then completed those three not long after.  Currently doing some grinding in the December dungeon for Reaper weapons. 

Psychonauts - I finally, after taking a month-long break, beat the Milkman Conspiracy.  That was one crazy boss.  Now to see what this insane asylum is all about....

EDIT: made a mistake.  I don't have all the P4 S.Links finished.  I thought I had, so I was confused when Margaret wasn't giving me any special prizes.  Turns out Judgement is still only Rank 8.

I'm really fucking tired of having to do missions over and over because the Mako is a piece of shit.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

The final dungeon in FFXIII is annoying the hell out of me. Regular enemies are taking upwards of 10 minutes a piece to kill and they throw so many of them at you that it is impossible to avoid them. I get so sick of fighting them that I let myself die and click retry to try and dodge them. I've liked the battle system up to this point, but it's starting to get on my nerves a little bit. Hopefully this dungeon ends soon.

The final dungeon in that game is a slooooooooog. I had maxed the Crystarium as far as I could by that point, and it still took forever. At least the music is cool :)

The whole crystarium or just the primary class? I have their primary classes maxed and then some, but it still seems to not be enough.

The final boss is so stupid. I literally had him down to less than 100,000 health and died because of doom.

OMG there's two more battles after this?! Does this game ever end?! Good grief lol. Square Enix literally threw the kitchen sink into this final dungeon.

I played Legend of Mana recently.  To my surprise I opened a treasure box and found a "Virgin's Sigh".... I don't know what to do with it.

This game is so so random.  I honestly think a remake/rescript could help it.  Also, I don't get blackmsithing, there doesn't seem to be values attached to anything.

Just finished up FFXIII. Took me 50 hours. Might do some extra stuff now. I liked it. It's a good, but not great game. Probably my least favorite main installment outside of the first 3.
