I'm slowly plodding my way through Dark Souls. I don't know how much further I'll be able to brute force before giving up on it. I don't feel like I'm becoming any better at the game, which is bumming me out. Grinding easy enemies for souls just so I can level up takes too long at this point to be any fun, but I guess that's the only solution.
I bought a new 250GB X-Box 360 a few days ago to replace my old one. It had a glitch, which wiped out it's memory. Once I got the new box installed, I re-downloaded my profile from X-Box Live, and it's now running perfectly.
I started a new play-through of Season 1 of the Walking Dead. After that will be Batman Arkham Origins, which I bought with the new Box, and then Halo 4, which came free with it.
I've been going through the old handheld Lufia games in the day leading up to LR:FFXIII's release. (I still do need to new-game-plus Curse of the Sinistrals.)
Lufia: The Legend Returns is really (openly) complicated for a GBC RPG, with its randomized dungeons and nine-character formation system that ties into Spiritual Force and IP Abilities, but I've had quite a lot of fun with it. It helps that Wain is a glorious Idiot Hero and the Sinistrals are much more sinister than they were in the previous games.
Lufia: The Ruins of Lore is a lot more like Lufia II, and while I'm still a little overwhelmed with the monster/installation and job systems, I'm enjoying what I've played so far of it. It helps that I'm endlessly amused by Eldin's ":D" face every time I pick up an item and my anticipation of meeting Dekar.
I am playing FF VI on my iPhone right now. It has thrown me into a deep nostalgia hole, and make me realize how much I love this game. It's an IOS port, so I wish I had a real controller, but it is one of the best versions of the game so far. Maybe I am crazy, but I really enjoy the redrawn artwork, and I think that Square has done a better job in area than they have in the past. I have also found that changing the d-pad back to the four-way controls is a better way to play the game than the 8-way pad. I find myself getting stuck in the environment with the 8-way pad more than I do on the 4-way pad.
I just beat Persona 2 Innocent Sin.
Really enjoyed the game but it is from an era that I've played very few games from. Took me a long time to get used to the combat and the overall presentation of the game, but once I did I really enjoyed it. I do kinda wish for a complete remake in the vein of P3 and P4 but I played those first so that is why. I recommend it but probably use a guide, would help.
I just bought Spelunky a couple days ago, Been playing a few hours a day.
Mostly i'm stuck in the jungle, but i did manage to get all the way to the temple one time with one heart remaining, died against the first thing i saw, but man did that feel great. Getting reliably further with more consistency is great. Theres a great sense of improvement on my part the more i play.
Granted i have something like 200 deaths and ive only had the game 3-4 days.
Also a bit disappointed theres no daily challenge on the 360 version. Maybe i shouldnt have assumed, but its not like i have any friends currently playing anyways so its no big deal.
I've basically been cycling between two very different games - Skyrim, and Sid Meier's Railroads! Both are totally awesome (you don't need me to tell you that Skyrim is amazing, but Railroads! is a game I don't often hear talked about, even though it is a ridiculously fun game). Amazingly, Railroads! is crashing significantly more than Skyrim is.
XB360. Just finished Bioshock Inifinte again, now I'm playing Bioshock on new game plus which I've never done before, and I borrowed Dark Souls from my roomate to check out for the first time. Also playing Red Dead Redemption for the first time but haven't picked it up in a minute.
PC. Loadout, right up my alley cause I don't enjoy realistic FPS', played Gone Home that I've had since Dec, and Jazzpunk cause of those goddamn jokes.
I started playing Halo 4 a couple of days ago. So far, the graphics are beautiful, and yet it plays like classic Halo. I'm on the first mission, and I'm currently fighting the Covenant. I haven't met the new villains yet.
I also am doing a new playthrough of Dragon Age: Origins.
Thief, Rayman Legends, Stronghold, Deadly Premonition, Dragon's Dogma, Diablo 3, Ride to Hell: Retribution, Total War: SHOGUN 2, Civ 5, and finally a little Halo 4 on the side.
Huh, I'm going through a lot of games concurrently right now I guess, didn't even realize it until I wrote it all down...
I just played through
- The Swapper
- Steamworld Dig
all in a week and a half. Next I'm thinking of finally finishing Fire Emblem awakening or giving The Witcher 2 a try. Once Titanfall comes out in a week and a half that'll probably take up all my gaming time for a while.
I just finished Assassin's Creed 2. I can't begin to describe how much better than the first one it is. Not sure what I'm going to play next. Maybe I'll get around to (console) Diablo III now. Or possibly Final Fantasy XIII-2 to determine whether I want to pick up Lightning Returns or not.
Maybe I'll even get around to finishing the game I'm making...
PvZ: Garden Warfare & BF4. Garden Warfare is way more fun than it has any right to be - and the depth/unlocks! 8 very different character classes with different variants of each...plus the aesthetic items. Plus, Happy Twirling away after melting some enemies with you sunbeam laser...
And BF4 has kept me busy for just over 300 hours the last few months. Once it was stable, I invested in Premium and it's been lots of fun.
I'm going to have to fire my 360 up again on Tuesday - South Park is just around the corner...
