Legaia 2: Duel-Saga



It's not a direct sequel to Legend of Legaia, which is a bit disappointing. And there are no more Seru or Ra-Seru. Instead there is a race of magic users called Mystics and these powerful mystical stones.

Regardless of the changes I'm still really enjoying it. It keeps the awesome battle system of the original game, and a lot of the same art sensibilities. But with an all-new story, all-new characters, and a shiny coat of PS2 graphics.

After Breezing through Portal 2, I've finally started playing Dead Space 2 which I bought almost 2 months ago.

So I took the advice of the previous poster & am playing Fallout 3. I agree, game is sweet, bordering on addictive. It's set in post-nuclear Washington DC, you've spent your whole life in an underground vault until one day your dad escapes, when you get a chance you sneak out too. The goal is to follow his footsteps & figure out where he went but there are SO many side quests, huge game map, cool graphics, combat system is sweet. Just a fun game to explore & find items & build up your skills. Even get to buy & sell stuff which of course I enjoy...

Yes fallout is very addictive and the dlc for it was great. Fallout new vegas is good as well. Lots to do in both games

Look at the top of the disc, just to the right.

Amazingly, this disc still plays perfectly fine. I thought that was crazy and just wanted to share.

Some games I recently finished playing through:

I recently finished 2 WWE Wrestling games for the XBox 360.

WWE '13 for XBox 360



FANTASTIC wrestling game. I could be a little biased since The Attitude Era is my favorite WWF/E era. But that was, BY FAR, the highlight of this game.

The storyline follows the birth of the WWF Attitude Era. Starting with the birth and formation of D-X, followed by the Austin Era, then the rise of The Rock, and then the Brothers of Destruction (Undertaker and Kane), followed by the many faces of Mick Foley, and finally the lead up to and the actual WrestleMania XV. After you beat all that, you then unlock a sort of "middle-card" storyline of the time right after WM XV. There is also a sort of "be the booker" mode called My WWE Universe. It looks neat, but also VERY detailed and in-depth; so it'll be something I'll have to come back to because I've had my wrestling game fill for the moment.

What's great, is the game gives great detail and background on this history and these matches, including video. So if you want to relive The Attitude Era, this is a fantastic way to do so. And, actually, it's better than the recent "Attitude Era" DVD WWE recently put out (which is a shame).

The controls are bit button-mashy, which I've seen complaints about online, but it's not that bad. You get used to it, real fast. I mean, it's not like it's WWE: Legends of WrestleMania; which brings me too...

WWE: Legends of WrestleMania for XBox 360



The game recreates matches and storylines from WrestleMania I thought XV. There are 3 ways you can play them: Relive (recreate), Rewrite (change history), Redefine (whatever you want, as long as you win the match). I played through all 3. There is also a "climb the ranks" sort of deal, like the old PS1/N64 wrestling games, called "Legend Killer", but you have to use a created wrestler, not an actual roster wrestler. I played through it, I didn't play through all 60+ opponent, but just short of that I earned all the medals/trophies.

What I loved about the game was the fan-service. The history they put in the game including video shorts that would show actual video of the build-up to matches, and of the actual match-highlights before you'd play the match. Not quite as well done as the WWE '13 highlights, but still good. The roster of classic WWF wrestlers was great, too, including alternate costumes. And lots of different match types and areans to battle in.

What I hated was the controls. A button-mashing mess. People complain about WWE '13 being too button-mashy, it's got nothing on Legends of WrestleMania. I was practically slapping the action-buttons on my XBox 360 controller half the time. It really makes your hand tired after long-play sessions.

I also recently finished

Golden Sun and GS: Lost Age on GBA



VERY highly recommended for traditional JRPG fans. Very cool game that is pretty addictive and both come together to tell one epic tale. It also uses a lot of Zelda-like puzzles, which keeps the game from becoming your normal JRPG grind-fest. And it has a large world to explore with lots of secrets to discover and side-quests to be completed.

Get these while they're still affordable. They were Nintendo releases, and Nintendo releases always tend to climb in value.

Halo 3: ODST



A much more character-oriented story than the other event-driven stories in the Halo franchise. A lot of fun and very dramatic. Story is told through a mixture of cutscenes and fallen soldier's personal logs. Very nice graphics. But kind of short.

Halo 4



I went into this, not expecting a whole lot since Bungie stopped making Halo games starting with this one. But luckily, I was pleasantly surprised. It still doesn't surpass Halo: Combat Evolved or Halo 2, but it's a very solid entry in the series and starts an entirely new storyline. New weapons and enemies through-out. And very nice-looking graphics. But it's missing that classic, rocking Halo soundtrack; and the replacement, while still good, just isn't quite as good as the original masterpiece.

Halo: Combat Evolved: Anniversary Edition



Very slick graphics added to an already amazing game. That's really all there is to say about this. If you've played Halo: Combat Evolved on the Original XBox or via XBox Live Download, then you know what to expect here; it just has a pretty, shiny new coat of paint on it. And a neat little feature is that you can switch back to the original XBox graphics at any time during gameplay, if you'd like. The real benefit is that the original game's maps are now available for online mulitplayer via consoles (the original game was not XBox Live Enabled until Halo 2; only the PC owners got to play the original maps online).

DuckTales Remastered for XBox Live Arcade



So much fun! I loved the added content, the voice-overs, and new renditions of the music. And the controls were spot-on, something I feared for before playing it. And dang is that chase sequence hard at the end. A lot harder than a simple rope climb like in the first one. A lot more attention to detail in this one, than the original, as well.

It's totally worth playing through both the original and this remake. They really do feel like 2 totally different games in the same franchise, even though many areas are very familiar.

I want to see a lot more remastered 2D classics like this!

I also just started playing this on my PC today, just because I was bored, and was VERY pleasantly surprised:

Tyrian 2000 for PC



Which is an absolutely awesome 2D shoot-em up with upgradable ships (spend points for upgrades), lots of options to upgrade with, great graphics and nice soundtrack, and lots of levels and unlockable bonus levels! And best of all, you can save your game in-between levels.

Highly recommended for shoot-em up fans!

I pulled out Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 last week and went through the pro-registration campaign for the first time. Now I picked Arkham City GotY and started it up. Pretty good so far.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance for XBox 360



I played the original XBox version when it first came out. But it's been so long, and I've had the XBox 360 version just sitting in my collection for a while after a friend gave it to me when he was moving.

So I decided to pop it in and play through it.

It gave me a huge glitch. Apparantly it's known to erase unlocked data if your XBox Live becomes disconnected and reconnects again. That's what happened to me. I lost some unlocked costumes as well as the Dr. Strange as a playable character. Which also mean wasted experience points respent on stuff I already spent it on.

Other than that annoyance, though, it was a blast to play through. And I swear there was some added content vs. the original XBox version that I didn't remember playing through. But it's also been so long, that I could've just forgotten. It has a very Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance feel to the gameplay, which I like a lot. Lots of unlockables. And it gives a lot of fan-service to the comic readers.

I tried to get into Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. I have the PS2 version. And I just couldn't. I don't know if having the PS2 is what the problem is, or if all the releases feel as cheap and lazy as the PS2 version does. It just doesn't have the same amount of effort put into it as the first one did. Poor voice-acting. Almost non-existant music. Bad movie-scenes. And they ruined the power-ups and item upgrades. I have no desire to finish it.

For XBox 360

This game is sooooo much freaking fun! I can't stop playing it. And it's one of those games that you're thinking about it even when you're not playing it.

But it's also tough as nails. You have regenerating health, but it depletes REAL fast. And when you die, back to the beginning of that area for you, and you have to re-earn any challenges you might have completed before dying in that area. Even though it's tough, it's also so much fun that I keep coming back for more punishment. And it makes beating those challenges so satisfying when you do.

My one complaint is that the game replaces invisible walls with irradiated areas that hurt and kill you. The problem is that sometimes it kills you so fast you have no time to react. Like you'll be swinging on your bionic arm, you swing to high, and before you can swing back down out of the radiation, you're already dead sometimes. It's not so bad or so often it's game-breaking though, just a complaint. I'd rather have invisible walls, personally, they don't kill your character.

BTW, it's hilarious when the enemies talk trash to you. They sound like real people. "Why do you have to be a such a bich, Spencer?!" and "SPENCER! I see you, you treacherous f*ck!"

Best part of this game, though, is that it's this damn good, and I only paid $5 for it, complete.

Just started this yesterday.

I know it got some pretty bad reviews, but I like it so far. It's fun and fairly easy to play - reminds me a lot of GoW and DMC.

I thought it looked like a ton of fun when I saw reviews of it. I haven't played it yet, though.
