me, i found the first FlatOut game on Steam for $2 so i bought it to relive some old PS2 memories, and i decided to try the factions multiplayer mode in The Last of Us and i’ve got to say it’s actually pretty fun, plus i recently bought SSX for my 360 so i’m more than set for fun :)

I have been playing FF7, but I’ve been on hiatus ever since Summer Break because my brother Evan keeps on hogging the downstairs loveseat for most of the day. Other than that, I’m still working on getting full completion on Pokémon White 2.

If I’m not playing LoL with my girlfriend, I’m either playing my first playthrough of MGS3, or desperately trying to beat Duriel with my sorceress in Diablo II (and failing horribly. every. single. time.)

After I’m done with MGS and Diablo, I think I’ll crack open Persona 3 and God of War 2, since those two have been waiting to be played for quite a while already.

And of course there’s Jagged Alliance 2, and it’s expansion, which I should have played through a long time ago (but still haven’t).

As for the handheld games, I’m playing through pokemon Emerald for the first time atm, and after that, there’s also Advance Wars – Dual Strike, and GTA Chinatown Wars waiting to be played.

I also bought an old SEGA Genesis/Megadrive, and that one has its games too, like Toejam & Earl, Ecco, Castle of Illusion, Sonic, etc.

Needless to say, I’m always late to the scene when it comes to popular games that everyone should play.

Better late than never I guess.

Recently started playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat with MISERY 2.0 mod installed. It’s pretty brutal, I’ll tell you that…

I’ve recently re-acquired some of my older games.

Been playing AoM (though sadly I have yet to recover the expansion, unfortunately, because the expansion s a hell of a lot more fun. Atlanteans can be kind of broken in some ways. At least I’m pushing through the single player campaign at a rather rapid rate.), and just started a playthrough of Half Life (I’ve got it on a CD, even. Not on Steam, which I cannot even start up right now (which is a shame because I can already think of one game I’d want to play that I do have on Steam (coughSonicGenerationscough)…), which I… am not doing particularly well on. I’ve already died a fair few times, and I don’t think I’m very far yet at all. And I’m playing on the easy skill level, too… Then again, I really don’t play that much FPS.

Muumi, you’re gonna cry.

Are you talking about beating Duriel with a sorceress? If that’s what you meant, then I can say that it invoked more rage than I even knew I had in me.

Doesn’t help that the game autosaves every time I die, even if I close the damn thing.

Also Muumi, hows that MGS3 play through coming along? gotten the hang of it yet?

I got the hang of it as soon as I toned down the difficulty settings. Gotta love that Tranqulizer Gun and Thermal Goggles.

I just beat The Fury the last time I had a chance to play, so I’m not sure how much of the game I have left. So far, it’s been a no-kill playthrough, unless those poor bastards in the hover platforms died when I dropped them with tranqulizer gun.

Had fun with The End though.

Went to the little storehouse, sat there and played Pokemon while letting The End wear himself down. Then I just sought him out with AP Sensor and popped a dart in his head.

I almost felt sorry for the old man. His greatest battle, and I just sat there playing Pokemon.

So hilariously anti-climatic.

Your in luck, tranquing the guys on the platforms doesn’t count as a kill as its technically the explosion that kills them when they crash, which is very handy as that particular section is difficult as hell to get around without dealing with them.

Ive took The End out a few times in varying ways before, last two times I just found him legitimately then chased him like mad with the Thermals so I could see his footsteps, He’s sorta easy to take down in my opinion however The Fear is ridiculously easy if you do the same thing and have the thermals on, stealth and invisibility being his main speciality afterall

I got Kerbal Space Program recently. I’ve sent a few unmanned probes to the Mun, and I’m currently struggling to build a craft capable of transporting larger payloads. My ships have the tendency to shake themselves apart shortly after leaving the launch pad. I’m also indulging in the occasional round of TF2.

I’ve been in the middle of Fallout 3 for a while now, though I’m on a bit of a break. It’s hard to play Skyrim before Fallout 3, and I’m just not enjoying it as much as Skyrim. If anyone knows some cool stuff to do in F3, I’d love to know.

Also Halo 4, which, though amazing, has some problems of its own.

I’ve been playing Minecraft mostly because I just been playing with different mods and modpacks. But sense my sisters BF came over he brought over Bioshock Infinite. I been playing some of that lately today and he also brought over Dark Souls so I will see if I can get a piece of that action as well.

I’m still burning through the Summer Backlog I set during last semester… I still have Persona 3 FES, Devil May Cry 4, Wind Waker, and Metroid Prime 2 left to beat. Currently, though, I’m still playing Metal Gear Rising and Persona 4 Golden religiously, along with SSFIV/Persona 4 Arena when the itch arises.

I was blazing through the backlog until about a few weeks ago when I guess I burnt out. I find it funny that I set out specifically wanting to beat P3 and yet I’ve beaten Persona 4 twice since I started my playthrough of Persona 3… I guess I just don’t like it as much… Oh well, I’m on the Tziah block of Tartartus and I’ve only got like 3 big shadows left, so almost there, right?

Since you’re playing Misery, have you tried Chorna Doroha/The Black Path yet? It’s the hardest, most brutal version of STALKER I’ve ever played.

Doesn’t excuse glitchdeaths from a spring at the end of the act. (I was on my last life at act 2. one missed jump and that was it.)

Moar Generations, it went much brtr.

I S ranked that Vector mission in Rooftop Run, HELL F**KING YES! (For those who don’t know, that is the most bull**** missin n the game. You have to deflect music notes back at Vector with the homing attack, and you have very little margin for error, because the homing attack seems to nerfed for that one mission. If just one note is missed, mission failed. Most annoying music based battle I’ve seen (then again, I only have the Prismriver sisters to compare it to), so… Yeah. Huge deal that I S ranked it.)

Binding of Issac (WotL)
Beat The Chest with all characters.

Binding of Issac (WotL)
No Damage Achievements.

I don’t play games. I play Issac.
All day.

Tales of Vesperia: Just finished the ghost ship dungeon and got to the coliseum. My play group is running into a bit of a conflicting issue though as they seem to just shrug off the skill acquirement system without a second thought, missing out on a giant deal of early mechanics. (As a result Repede, my usual character, doesn’t have Backstep or Guardian.)

Shin Megami Tensei 4: Accidentally forgot to save and the system lost power while in my pocket, trying to grind back up to where I was.

Pikmin 3: 10th day and just got the Captain back. Goal: Gather up all the fruit you can find and find Olimar so he can give back the hyperdrive key.

Update Again:

~Pikmin 3: Final Boss Defeated, Found Olimar, and roughly 66% of all the collectables obtained (Fruit anyways. Treasure is not marked). Louie is in the game too but he’s accidentally lost a few dimensions in his character on the way here.

The Final Boss was a Mercury Based Lifeform that appeared to have the ability to take on the form of other creatures. It’s domain was filled with clones that burst into mercury when you killed them… I am getting the same vibes I got from “The Thing”. Next I know Olimar’s head will split open into that golden metal liquid and devour the entire crew! When the fuck is Miyamoto going to develop a horror game?
Yes and No. For autopiloting your team back to base or out to the point you left off in the previous day while you go get yourself a sandwich it’s a welcomed add on. But they built this game to use all the possible control schemes, thus making all the gamepad features possible on the TV Screen and defeating the point.
Overall it was just insanely fun to play. And even though I found it more interesting to look for treasure in pikmin 2 than looking for fruit in pikmin 3, I wound up having more fun in 3 than I did 2. (And for the love of god they need to implement an autotarget for the non-wii remote users. Fighting Flying Enemies was a pain in the ass!) 9/10.

Metal Gear Solid 3 – First time I play the game. Recently, I defeated the Pain. I found the fight quite easy.

Anarchy Reigns – The characters’ designs are so damn good. I fought and defeated four freaking giant mutants and I don’t even know how I was able to do that.

The Darkness II – Those relic stories. They sure as hell blew up my mind.

I’ve been playing freeware RPGs in very different genres:

Star Stealing Prince – Traditional fantasy with excellent atmosphere and a tweaked battle system where effects wear off quickly, the damage spells can cause effects, and the effect spells can cause damage. This shakes up the old battle system enough to make it interesting again.

I Miss The Sunrise – Sci-fi with strong worldbuilding and characterization and a novel battle system.

Lunar Wish – Comedy with a RPG tacked on. In this one the gaming is secondary to the ongoing silliness, but it’s good enough to work.

I’m playing Super Robot Wars Z2 Saisei-hen, and BioShock Infinite when I find time.
I’m also playing through various Zelda games with my girlfriend, currently we’ve just hit the Spirit Temple in Ocarina of Time. Wind Waker is next if I recall.

Plenty of different ones, mostly fighting games since I learned to appreciate them.

Downloading Sonic the Fighters right now, and I have Battle Fantasia ready for when I finally get the fightstick I ordered in the mail.

People actually played Fighters.
