Once again, trying something different. This week I got bogged down at work so I had the chance to brush up on my heavy mech SRPG. The iOS TRANSFORMERS G1: Awakening continues to be a good game. I'm on the 15th mission of 17 and the stroy is a bet repeditive, but still fun. That just leaves the other game I've been playing this week. Mass Effect 3 has been a cross between playing with the data pad app to keep up my readiness rating and plowing though all avalible missions in ME3. I'm glad that I'm done, but I don't see myself getting any of the DLC. Ever.

March is over, but the biggest April fools joke of all came a month early. Now it's back to the backlog for me. I'll be setting my coutdown clock to E3. All that's left to close out the month is to ask, Whatcha Been Playin'?

Falling back in love with Pokemon with Soul Silver -- I've never played 2nd Gen before, so this was really fun and new for me. Fistpumped maniacally at work yesterday after catching Lugia on break (shoutout to Ampharos for her Thunder Wave and 2 Discharges and my 7 Ultra Balls for making this possible).

I'm now hopelessly lost and have no idea where the Elite 4 are. Goddamn it, I should've paid more attention to that dumb phone call that the Prof sent me.

360:

Gears of War 3 - Just stopped from a 4hr session of Beast & Guardian, new map pack is decent (except Jacinto which looks and plays like shit especially at TDM) and I'm seeing myself spending some quality time with the game again.
Ninja Gaiden 2 - Chapter 6 at Mentor and IMO there's no other game this gen that comes close to NG2's feel and satisfaction when in battle despite being unpolished as hell. :P
I Am Alive - I'm about 2hrs in and I really love the environments, the atmosphere and the platforming - the stamina meter really adds to the tension and makes you think and actually plan your movements before mindlessly jump into a ledge, a very welcome addition to the more and more nerfed platforming that we see in most games these days..a really unique experience thus far.

PS3:

Journey - Bought the game yesterday and planning to start this later tonight, really curious to see the game mainly because of all the praise the game gets here at gaf. :)

If I use selective memory and view the entire game as a 30 hour ending, then I did too.

Get some stuff from the Amazon sale coming too, so I'm fairly swamped. Even still I'm dumb enough to consider getting the US version of Xenoblade to retry and support, too, even though I wasn't particularly huge on the game. I probably won't though, even my OCD only goes so far!

After all this junk I'm not buying a damn thing until at least Diablo.

Fate/Unlimited Codes. Bought it on PSN the other day to play on my Vita and I've been having fun with it. Nothing really on consoles/PC, but I might run out to rent Neverdead and force myself to play it.

Ninja Gaiden 3 - Might try to finish the co-op trials, but I don't really care. Might be done with it until Ultimate Ninja comes out.
Devil May Cry 1 - Started it last night in the HD collection. It's fun.
Asura's Wrath - Playing for the ridiculous over the top cutscenes whenever I don't feel like playing other games
Dodonpachi Daioujou Black Label - Just practicing my save states for a few minutes each day so I haven't forgotten my patterns once I get back to it.

Got the next week off from work, gonna relax and play some gamez.

Just picked up Yakuza 4 and Corpse Party today. Looking forward to a double dose of Japanese weirdness.

Still hooked on Plants vs. Zombies and Lumines: Electronic Symphony on Vita. Both are great pick up and play titles, I like my other Vita games but I'm set between the two. Also hooked on The Sims 3 on PC, haven't played the series in ages but it's still surprisingly deep and addictive. I've grown too attached to my Sims family to kill them off, but that doesn't mean I can't set my neighbors on fire every now and then.

Halo: Reach - I play this way too much even though about 25% of the time I don't like it.
Kid Icarus: Uprising - The best game on the 3DS.
Final Fantasy XIII-2: I've had this since launch but have only put 16 hours in. This weekend I'm going to try to play more. I want to finish it before Xenoblade comes out.
Lumines: Electronic Symphony - I suck at it so much, but I love it.

About 10 hours-in. Really enjoying it so far...those 1000 years of dream sequences, amazing.



Just finished Silent Hill 2, had a lot of fun playing it in spite of it being a flawed version. Gonna start SH3 tonight I think.



Just snagged this on Amazon. Haven't played very much but I'm liking it so far.

Whats your high score? I'm struggling to get past the 500k hump (the last few skins are a bit hectic), but I've improved a lot since I started playing.

Surf east from the starting town. Bring a pokemon with waterfall. You're welcome!

My game of the month (seriously, it's taking ages):



Fun but ultimately flawed because of the damned minis constantly walking to their doom. Hasn't stopped me from playing though. It's surprisingly lengthy. Check it out 3DS ambassadors!

Doing a bunch of side stuff in Final Fantasy XIII-2 (PS3) and whatnot. I don't get what the hell is going on story-wise, but I'm still having fun. Also picking at Dustforce (PC) here and there. I'm running out of 'easy' levels though, and this ish gets really difficult. Dabbled in some Tomb Raider: Underworld (PC), which was neat for a minute until I got to Southern Mexico, and some Thief: Deadly Shadows (PC) which is is pretty cool. I kind of want to buy the first two and just go to them, but I'll stick with this for a bit. I'll hopefully beat XIII-2 soon-ish so I can get to one of the other eight thousand RPGs in my backlog.

Is this your first Yakuza? I've never seen you mention it before. Given our taste in RPGs are largely similar, I think you'll enjoy it. I'd be really curious to hear your thoughts after you spend some time with it, either way.

I played Yakuza 1 and liked it, but for some reason I haven't touched the series since then.

I finished Mass Effect 3 twice (Paragon and Renegade) and finished the main quest in FF XIII-2.

Both games are closer in quality than Id imagined.

Sinking my teeth into Closure slowly. Not sure what I think of it; not really a huge fan of the style where you can screw up a puzzle and have to completely reset it. Makes it feel gamey and not immersive. Presentation is also lacking in areas such as the menu, and the music, while catchy, can be a little overbearing for me. Puzzles are tough and gratifying though. I know this sounded overly negative, but this game is actually a worthwhile endeavor!

Enjoying it quite much, pacing is very fluid, combat is excellent




Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey - DS
Strange Journey is a very befitting title - one of the best Sci-Fi settings I have played in recent years



Alone in the Dark - GoG
Good old Game; holds pretty well



Oblivion - PC
Second Third play through - This time finished the Dark Brotherhood and Thief's guilds

Ninja gaiden sigma (PS3) - Currently doing a "hard" play-through on this. On chapter 11 at the moment. Hoping I can finish this quickly so I can move on to "very hard" since it hasn't been to difficult atm.:P

Vanquish (360) - Doing a replay of this on Hard.

Shin megami tensei : devil survivor 2 (DS) - On Day 4 right now. Game is so good!!

Ys: oath in felghana (PC) - Currently in the middle of the second boss. Game looks and plays great on PC.

Battlefield 3 (PS3) - Rush and maybe a few GAF matches now that private servers are up.


Uncharted 3 (PS3) - Team Deathmatch, Team Objective, and co-op.


Modern Warfare 3 (PS3) - This game pretty much confirms what I knew all along, COD4 will always be the best in the series.

This is the kind of motion control game I imagined the Wii would have years ago.


Monster Hunter Tri



Spent this week making new Great Sword weapons ranging from the Crimsonwalll and Blade of Talos to the High Siegmund and Diablos Hornsword. They all look cool, but it's unfortunate how their gimped due to the requirement of the awakening armor skill to active their elemental/status attack power. I don't think it's possible to get armor skills Sharpness+1, Critical Draw, and Awaken together. Damn.

Just a couple hours shy of plat on SR3. Easily top 5 this gen for me.
Friends and I got excited about D3 in may, figured we would get warmed up.
Love the vita, Unit 13 is pretty fun. Certainly not deep, but its like the perfect portable shooter.
