Just got a PSP this morning and have been messing around Crisis Core. It's all good. ^_^

Otherwise I've been messing around with The New Super Mario Bros. on mah DS and have been working my way through Kingdom Hearts. Yay!

Diablo 2
Homeworld 2 (I'm trying to find time to torrent the previous reincarnations)
Starcraft
Tetris?
Counterstrike 1.6
Anarchy Online
(I'm waiting for) TDZK: FLeets (to return)

Also, I'm a slave to the Korean improvements to the basic WoW Idea.

I have a guilty liking to

Rappelz (Hey, realistic breast size? Sign me on!)

, and I fear that if I try any other ones I will explode into a million fragments.

And, when I have a stable income and a powerful computer,

Guild Wars' Expansions
Anarchy Online's Expansions

EVE ONLINE.

If I had a console, and more TIME (and money, of course), I would try out the new games. But since I have more pressing matters to focus on, I will leave my gamer shade of mine alone, possibly for a long time. Besides, Rappelz, AO, and EO have a huuuuge universe to explore. Homeworld 2 players only get better and more confidant that Homeworld 3 will appear and will be a Starcraft 2 and C&C4 killer, or whatever. Lol I wish too, friends. No, I'll be set with the games I know about for a while, if I ever return to gaming.

Currently in the first chapter of an FF marathon (all the main games from 1-through 12 sans 11), along with Rapid Reptile Muncher and unperson no. 8.

Got 2 crystals, and the class change, just about to get into the submarine.

STILL playing FF4: The After Years... the grinding just never ends! I swear this last scenario must have at least 30 boss fights so far.

I also scoured the bargain bin today to pick up Disgaea and Etrian Oddysey for my DS... couldn't find used copies of DQ4 or Front Mission though.

Final Fantasy V Advance, now I remenber why I always thought this game is underrated in the FF series, spectacular gameplay so many jobs, so many combinations, so many enemies that need their own strategy, fantastic music as always, and the characters and villians are pretty good, but I guess people love watching Cloud moping for his identity or Cecil in a bad mood after Kain betray him again, and Gilgamesh is just plain awesome it can't be denied nor omitted.

I thought FFV was the weakest of the SNES generation, personally. All that customization means that the characters have no true personality (lampshaded when one gets killed and is immediately replaced by a new character who just happens to have exactly the same skills) and requires hours of grinding to keep your group reasonably flexible towards the end.

Gilgamesh was awesome though, can't deny that.

Mirror's Edge is amazing!!!!! :w00t: Seriously I haven't had this much fun with a game in such a long time. :smirk: The cartoon cut-scenes fit in real well with the rest of the game (they have this kinda eSurance kinda feel to it) and I don't think I've ever had so much fun jumping around. ^_^

GEEEHHHH!

A fan of predeterminated jobs/skills, I assume. The customization was what sold the game to me because I hate FFIV's gameplay, too linear from beginning to end Rydia was practically the only character that had more than 2 choices to pick on her turn.

For me, the skills doesn't define the character his or her personality and background does it, and the job system guarantees that all characters can be different in battle even after mastering all the jobs with everyone, unlike other systems. About Krile, she didn't have the same skills of Galuf from the beginning, after his dead theres a scene in which he gives her a memento with all his abilities, and it was that or building her jobs from zero.

As for the grinding, well I didn't need to do that to beat the Rift just a little to defeat Ex-Death, mostly I experimented different things, throwing weapons with the ninja, using blue magic, support summons, even the bard's songs were extremely usefull in some places and the ability Mix of the chemist is an early game breaker if you have the right items.

I've been playing Killer7 again and I never want to stop, it's a true masterpiece. I love everything about it; the incredibly stylistized graphics with the occasional animated cut-scenes, the atmosphere of dread and confusion, the convoluted plot that makes exposition something to beg for, as opposed to bored of. It's so stuffed full of metaphors and cryptic-ism and I love it all.

About the woman you clasp in your arms, can you say with certainty that she does not feign pleasure? About the woman you mistreat, are you quite sure that from abuse she does not derive some obscure and lascivious satisfaction? Let us confine ourselves to simple evidence: through thoughtfulness, gentleness, concern for the feelings of others we saddle our own pleasure with restrictions, and make this sacrifice to obtain a doubtful result." -The Divine Marquis

It depends. If it's a game where I'm basically just this one guy I want as much customization as possible because it's my dude. If it's a party-based game, however, it feels better to me for each character to have a role that defines them, such that who you put in your party is a tactical choice (assuming there are such choices, of course... FF4 is linear as hell, quite true). In that case I'd still rather each character had a set of unique branching options for character growth, perhaps along the lines of Dragon Quest 8 or Sword of Mana 3... or hell, like Diablo 2 maybe.

As for the grinding, well I didn't need to do that to beat the Rift


I did it for the job levels, not the character levels. I wanted to have my characters each with several jobs mastered before I went through the gate of no return, and in some cases that took a while... mostly because I'd been screwing around with a little bit of everything along the way and hadn't really focused until that point.

Reinstalled Abe's Oddysee & Exoddus, playing through both of them in tandem. Up to the Paramite temple in Oddysee and the Slig Barracks in Exoddus. These games are so awesome.

Also playing through DBZ Raging Blast, which is fun as hell. Modern Warfare 2 is great also, but I don't have online multiplayer capacity :(. The co-op mode is worthwhile, though. There's a lot of replay value there, it just gets frustrating sometimes.
