1CC'd on Normal.
Edit: Ahaha, nearly finished the game. Kanako's final SC is gloriously ridiculous. It's not THAT hard, but it's still too hard for me (used 2 lives and about 6 bombs with ReimuA, still died with half of Kanako's life remaining). Plus, the bombs are almost worthless on that card except for saving your butt. I like how continues put you back at the start of the level though - no temptation that way. Still, I think this is possibly the hardest Windows Touhou game, with the only competition being EoSD (don't have SA yet).
I may give up on this and start working on the SA demo instead. Paletweb will probably be receiving an order from me soon...
Edit 2: Ahahaha, SA is horrible. Finally 1CC'd MoF. WIll be picking up SA and UFO soon.
Completed. Not nearly as good, story-wise, as the previous game - although the balance tweaks are very much welcome. Still, it's more like an enhanced version of the previous game with a crappier story.
I need to finish this. Enjoyed it, but put it down before completion and never really got back into it after that.
Edit: Finished (finally!) - I devoted the better part of a weekend to finishing the game. Was worth it. (I can has Justin Bailey?)
This got really really dull, really really fast. I don't mind pacifist games, but there are interesting pacifist games (see: Viva Pinata, Harvest Moon) and then there are games like Animal Crossing. I'm quite sure my little avatar's house is overflowing with roaches by now - it's been more than a year. It would be nice if the game had a "firebomb" option to burn down your house and perpetrate insurance fraud.
The basic concept is brilliant, but some of the level designers should be taken out and tossed off a building. Including the idiot who designed that "wonderful" mall atrium. Oddly enough I get the feeling that if you crossed Metroid Prime with this you'd end up with something ridiculously awesome... (Completed.)
I liked this a lot better than the previous one - completed with Hikari, Mei and Kaori.
Completed. One of the cleverest uses of the DS touchscreen, IMO.
Completed. I still think this was better than the sequel.
Must get around to completing this soon.
Not completed; must do so sometime.
This was interesting - it felt different from the original; more frantic, less leisurely. Not that that's bad, but it led to me not completing it. :P
The folks who made this had good ideas, but it didn't feel like those ideas gelled into more than the sum of their parts. Completed anyway.
Completed. Still a classic.
Completed (PC version).
Not completed. I need to start playing this again sometime.
Not completed. Now playing.
Completed. This was fun. It seems like Square's localization people are hiring much better voice actors these days - both this and FF12 had pretty good voice acting.
Not completed *sigh*.
I dust this off now and then for some fun. The virtual cockpit instruments are awesome, but unfortunately the terrain is pretty ugly and the frame rate is surprisingly low. Still, worth messing around with now and then.
Not 1CC'd. I used to be able to get about halfway through stage 4 in Maniac mode on one coin, if memory serves. I like this game a lot - about as much as Dodonpachi, actually.
Not 1CC'd. I should spend more time with this, but...
Can't 1CC. This is good for the collection, but I find it really doesn't suit the way I play shmups.
Completed, and that's about as much Katamari as I can stand.
Completed, and surprisingly it didn't suck. Apart from the cringe-worthy cutscenes and the main character's name, that is. Ick.
Not completed. Last boss is hard :P
Not sure if I completed this. Don't think so. I remember getting to the final dungeon though.
Completed, mainly because the last boss was not stupidly random and unfair, unlike the previous game. :P
Completed. Excellent game!
Completed (I think!).
Manual was awesome. Game was also awesome, except it ran like crap on my PC. I think this was the first time I experienced framerate slowdown in my life...
Completed. I love the Invader Raid :D
I can't remember where the heck I left my registration code, but I definitely remember purchasing and completing this game.
I ought to finish this. It was good fun, but I got distracted.
1CC'd with Sakurako. ONEE-SAMA KIIIIIIIICK!
The combat system is pretty interesting, but it's not really enough to save this game from utter mediocrity. I've played some dull JRPGs in my time, but this one takes the cake.
Completed the single-player, which is not saying much. I tried multiplayer but couldn't really get into it. Still, the tinkertoy aspect of the game is kind of fun.
Not completed. The visuals are lovely, but the gameplay is kind of meh once you realise that your so-called "god powers" are pretty much just there for finding switches and flipping them.
Completed several times over. The production values - heck, the whole game is astounding. And fun, too.
Completed. I actually have the PC (Chinese) and PSP (Japanese) versions...
Completed (on PC). I liked this a lot.
Completed. I normally am not an FPS fan, but this was good fun - even if a little too Jerry Bruckheimer for my tastes.
Not completed. I think I got about 75% through the game before it simply got a bit dull. Part of the problem is that it feels like there are too many separate activities without enough "glue" to bind them together.
Completed. I can only hope that they allow modding for the SP campaign, and/or more flexible co-op. A randomly-generated co-op campaign, supporting all 4 factions, with random wargear as rewards, would be awesome. Hell, I'd even buy an expansion pack on the strength of that feature alone... Relic, are you guys listening?
Completed. I felt like it wasn't quite as good as Starcraft - the hero thing was fun for single-player but a pain in the butt to manage in multi-player. I still wonder what would have happened if they'd gone with their original design. Might have ended up looking curiously like Dawn of War 2.
Just started not too long ago. I like the skill-swapping mechanic, but hunting down the different skills is a bit of a pain. I don't want to resort to an FAQ if I can help it, but...
Yes, I was a WoW player. For some reason the game simply didn't manage to grab me that much. Quit a couple of months before WotLK came out. I guess having gone on a few successful Kara runs counts as having "completed" the game... well... maybe.
Not completed, but I really like this game. Am saving it for one of those days when I get tired of committing war crimes and hunting endangered species to near-extinction (heh).
Not completed. I think I ran out of interest just after finishing the main game.
Hmm, I didn't find this as awesome as some people did. I really should go back and finish it.
Completed with all 3 factions. I would love to learn how to mod this, but I simply can't find the time or energy.
It may have been eclipsed by other expansions since, but the combination of SC and BW is well-nigh unbeatable. I've forgotten how many times I finished all 3 campaigns, even after multiplayer lost its lustre...
I still remember opening the box and studying the techtree insert... Of course, I completed it. Actually, my handle comes from the first time I logged on to Bnet to play Starcraft!
Now playing, off and on. Good times.
Even after I've completed it, F.O.E.! I didn't really feel like finishing the bonus dungeon, since it pretty much required me to grind up an entire second party of characters just so I'd have enough staying power to hack through all the ridiculously tough monsters.
Can't remember why I dropped this. It wasn't great, but it wasn't THAT bad. Probably something more interesting came along.
The fighting engine is still decent, but I feel like it's not quite as easy to "read" as SCII. Wonder why.
...And this is where things started to go sour with the series. (Completed, nonetheless. Even though I suck against any decent opponent.)
Have the PS2 version. This might have been the first fighting game I really got into.
Here's another game which is great for multiplayer, but kind of dull in single-player. There's not enough empire-building to make it interesting as a single-player game - it feels too much like an RTS in skirmish mode, and I wouldn't buy most RTSs just for skirmish mode alone. (AoE2 is the sole exception.)
I ought to finish this. I really ought to... *sigh*
I got this at a hefty discount. It's really more of a fan-disk than it is a game, so I wouldn't recommend it unless you really like the original game - or the characters. And the DLC will kill you. (So far I've managed to limit my purchases to one fairly-cheap pair of glasses...)
Completed with Makoto, Miki and Chihaya (not at the same time). I must get back to my Yukiho game sometime.
Not completed. This is another game where I kind of just slid off the wagon.
Not completed. I really wanted to like this, but somehow the old X-Com magic just wasn't there. By all accounts it's a spectacular bit of programming given the platform it was running on, though.
It's bloated. It's overrated by its fans. It's also surprisingly enjoyable. I really feel like this game isn't as polished as it should be - it just feels rough around the edges - but it's great fun. Even if I haven't 1CC'd it on any decent difficulty level.
Completed. I really like this; it feels fresh and different without being so alien as to be inaccessible.
I liked it in theory, but the story was frighteningly trite. Still, leveling up a killer sunflower and flinging beams of sunny death around is hilarious. Completed, but I never got around to the extra sidequests.
Note to self: Do not buy a game "for its modding potential" if you are too lazy to make a decent mod.
Came for the game, stayed for the moddability. It's pretty fun to insert your own tricked-out vehicles into the game. I don't recall whether I ever finished the forgettable single-player mode...
Completed the single-player mode. Somehow this is still my favourite competitive FPS; it's just a little bit slower and more newbie-friendly (read: ripper spam or rocket spam) than its brethren or the Quake series.
Completed Portal, but not the others. I think I got about 3/4 way through HL2 before it all became a dull blur of antlions and gunfire and occasional gravity-gun flinging.
