I was in gamestop a few days ago and picked up Star Ocean International for $30. Played it for a while, decided that I'm gonna take it back and get something else. Any suggestions? Something in same price range would be nice too, not trying to spend more if I don't have to.

Also I suppose I could just use the money to get PSN/XBLA bucks, I haven't bought a downloadable game in some time. So feel free to suggest something downloadable. It just sucks that I will have like $10 left over in credit at gamestop.

Remind me to stop going to gamestop, I end up there on days when I'm really really bored.

Get Outland, an XBLA game that is criminally underappreciated.

EDIT: Also, do not go back to Gamestop. Download Steam instead. Or go to Amazon.

Is that the platformer that reminds people of ikaruga?

Yeah, something like that. The foreground is mostly black except for the colors blue, red, or yellow, and you have to switch between blue and red to solve puzzles, kill enemies with a sword, absorb same-colored beams, etc. It can get pretty rough.

What I've played of it is pretty awesome. Here is the Quick Look.

I just had a look at your achievements to see what you've played. There's some stuff that lept to mind, not all obscure but stuff you might dig:

ME3 is worth checking out if you dug ME2, and the horde mode they have is really fun (I haven't been online in a few months, so I don't know how active the servers are)

I've heard good things from friends about Hybrid, and Brad seemed to like it a lot.

If you can stand rogue-likes and seriously tough platforming, Spelunky might be your bag

The Walking Dead is great, even on consoles. You really ought to look into it.

You ought to rent Spec Ops: the Line to play through the campaign once. The story is pretty damn good, even outside the context of a video game.

Oh and Journey, you really ought to give that a shot. The Collector's edition is out now with dev commentary and a bunch of other extras.

Have you played Shadows of the Damned yet? That's definitely a strange game.

You should do this if you haven't already, also Swords and Sworcery is pretty fucking good.

Well I just ran over to gamestop.

Shadows of the damned, Walking dead, ME3, And Journey are all on my list.

I ended up picking getting Armored Core 5. It was the exact same price so it was a straight trade. I'm also a long time fan of the series and I really enjoyed For Answer.

I think my next game is gonna be Journey after this.
