Finally finished the DLC case for Dual Destinies.  If anyone is still on the fence, just get it; its 100% worth it. 

Been logging in a lot of hours into SMT IV.  I'm really enjoying the exploration aspect of it more than I expected.  Also on the 3DS doing a little Resident Evil Revelations and Senran Kagura.

I started Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.  I went in knowing it was going to be nothing like Castlevania, but I'm still not that into it.  The combat is decent and the game looks beautiful (especially the illustrations in the menus), but the titan fights are horrendous and overall it feels uninspired and boring.  I may just still be bitter about Konami rebooting the series though.

So I'm an hour into Kingdom Hearts.

The camera is terrible. The platforming is annoying. The music is atrocious.

I'm on my second pointless fetch quest and I'm already ready to throw in the towel.

Does it get better?

Besides thinking the music is terrible (hopefully other islands get better): No.

At least I don't think so and I'm a decent enough fan of the series.

There are fun parts, but for the most part, the first title is sort of annoying,  It's that annoying kid at a party that just ain't got nothing on his bigger bro (KHII) and sis (KHBBS) and awkward but cool cousin (3DS).

That is shitty to hear.

I'm in the world with the districts now. I'm running around trying to find Donald and Goofy and all I'm doing is getting constantly attacked by those stupid black shadows. That's one of my biggest pet peeves. If I'm trying to do something or find the next place to go, *don't* interrupt me with constant random battles that prevent me from doing what I want to. It's incredibly irksome. This game is checking all my negative boxes all at once.

Edit - I gave up after three hours. I just couldn't take any more.

At least instead of saying I refuse to play KH because I hate Disney, I can at least honestly say I tried KH and it was just a shitty game.

Finished GTA V storyline. I don't know if it's because I really enjoyed the game, or it's actually the case, but the storyline here felt much shorter than San Andreas and GTA IV. Didn't seem like there were as many missions here as there are in the aforementioned titles... Maybe it's because there are 3 playable characters this time around, and it's spread out? I don't know, but I certainly didn't get my fill. There definitely aren't enough heist missions... I think a lot more could have been done with that. I suppose this lack of a beefy story mode is due to a heavier focus on online play (which I'm personally not at all into). Oh well. I have no regrets in purchasing at full price. It's a fantastic game. I'll come back and do some of the extra stuff later on.

Anyway, this longing for more sandbox action brought me back to a game I never finished, but absolutely enjoy: Just Cause 2. I forgot how bad ass Rico is, and how fun it is to rampage the land with the assistance of the all-too-awesome grappling hook mechanic. Incredibly fun stuff. I'm mostly done with the storyline, but there is still plenty to do.

Played a little Amalur over the weekend as well. Just to get re-associated with the control scheme, as I plan on balancing it and JC2. Gotta finish more games. Too much back log goin on.

The one thing the first game has over later games is that you don't need a power point presentation to understand what the fuck's going on.

I hate what KH: BBS did to the plot of the original. Playing it now there are so many things that just don't work with the changes they made in Birth by Sleep. The worst being everyone who was present in Birth by Sleep talking about Sora as the chosen wielder of the one and only keyblade.

I caught up to the ruins where I had previously left off years ago. Muppy, where have you been all my life ~ <3

I love how the game makes you interested in NPCs. They have their own little stories rather than their entire life being centred around you.

Evidently there is a trophy glitch in the Hoarder trophy in dead Island Riptide...somewhat aggravating considering I logged @4 extra hours searching for the damn things.

I feel there's a ton of weirdo parallels between Kingdom Hearts and Star Wars, so I just kinda ride it out.
I wouldn't be surprised if Sora's dad comes out with spikier hair and as the final villain.

I did like how BBS was otherwise a downer ending; I thought that was pretty bold and makes going to the Keyblade Graveyard a pretty interesting event for the three characters.... (though in conjunction with what Aeo said, it's kind of hard to follow what the titty-twisting-hell happened exactly)

And yeah, the whole "Sora" as said by everyone was kinda lame, especially since the kid is hardly fleshed out as anything more than a do-gooder chosen for some inexplicable reason... and especially since our Square-Disneyworld Saviour FAILED HIS EXAM.  AHEM... >:(

So Sora's dad = Ansem? I suppose we can change it around a bit and call him Mesna or Soransem.

Yeah Klutz is probably closer to the actual thing. xD
Or at FIRST it's Soransem, then it's revealed it's Xxx9999Ansem0013xxX... then it's revealed to be a dog the whole time!!!!!!

Well the game started and I was thinking : "Where the fuck are they? Spira? Why is Wakka there? Why is Tidus mentioned? Is KH1 part of FFX?"

It just seemed utterly pointless to include Wakka in the first part of the game.

I'm kind of surprised but there are a goddamn ton of 3DS eShop/VC games I want. I mean ffs I know I have them in Shenmue but maybe if I buy 3D Space Harrier and Hang On Sega will release more Atlus stuff in the US????

Anyway.

AWLDP - Doing Hera's Tower. I really like how this looks. I'm also surprised at how much... three-dimensional gameplay there is, both in terms of z-axis stuff and wall crawling, considering that this is essentially a 2D Zelda.

Jamestown - Beat Level 1 on, uh, the third difficulty and Level 4 on the second difficulty. This still feels weirdly slight to me. I'll need to try Gauntlet mode. Also WTF at the DLC not adding any new levels?

Various - Mess variously around in SMTIV, Kid Icarus, and Fire Emblem just to make sure they worked.

Real life - Considering brewing rye bread in my french press because I am a sociopath.
