My ability to keep up with good games has been mostly limited to big titles

I read that "big titties"...

Also who goes on vacation to Afghanistan? o.O

You should probably think a little more before you speak and/or type. Limbo was interesting. Binding of Isaac I heard was also interesting.

Valkyria Chronicles. It's sort of like an evolution of grid-based, but it's awesome and one of the best looking games this generation.

Yeah Valkyria Chronicles is a great game. A shame that the sequels are on psp and 1 of them isn't released in the states.

I've been wanting to try out that game for a really long time but I was never too sold on the story aspect of it. What's it about, what kind of themes does it deal with and how's the voice acting/translation?

Thematically you get a fair amount of typical anime like tropes. Many of the dudes are handsom young men, all the women are probably a bit too cute to be at war. Your main character has little quirks like he really likes nature. It reminds me of a Fire Emblem game though because instead of expendable units your squad is made up of people that have personalities, likes, dislikes, and back stories that you can read about in a journal. They can die, Though it is more this real time turn based hybrid rather than something like Advanced wars, FF tactics, or Fire Emblem. Look up some gameplay.

ANYWAYS, the story does take place in fake WW2. It can be highly whimsical and light hearted, (During the middle of the war you have a beach vacation where you eat watermelon because anime, also you have a pet pig) it does cover issues like racism.

The first time you meet your new team one is kind of bitchy to your adoptive sister because she is a darcsen, which is basically a stand in for jewish people. The game certainly isn't bleak, but you may reload a save if a squad member you like dies in battle ( like Jann). Maybe the game doesn't handle war with the weight it should, maybe the game is just plurr, but really so few WW2 games even touch the idea of racism that went on then.

Even if the story isn't your thing, the game does look really nice with its manga art style. The combat is pretty fun and can be a challenge. It's probably worth it because it is different from most games out there.

Thanks for taking the time to really delving into what's the story about. The story doesn't excite me tremendously(although this "instead of expendable units your squad is made up of people that have personalities, likes, dislikes, and back stories that you can read about in a journal. They can die but I think I will buy it" does) but I think I will check it out.

Someone hear mentioned PSn Classics. What games are there for a guy who never played any RPG's on the original PlayStation that are worth playing?

Damn, that's a lot of love for Valkyria Chronicles, sounds like my next purchase especially since it's actually quite cheap at my local video game store. In regards to Disgaea, I just read a few reviews and saw a few vids and it seems mad in a whole lot of ways, many of which seem to turn me off quite a lot. Btw, did anyone here play Folklore? It was one of the earliest RPG's on the PS3 and I remember hearing some good stuff about it but I can't seem to find much about it online.

You'll enjoy your first Disgaea game, whichever it is. After that they kind of grow stale.

There's one on the PS3, right? I heard the gameplay is quite similar to FF Tactics but the style of the game is maaaaad Japanese, right?

Pretty straightforward question I guess. Maybe as a sort of guide in terms of my tastes I really enjoyed Final Fantasy X, Dragon Quest VII, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance but didn't really enjoy Final Fantasy XII or Eternal Sonata and to be honest haven't played much beyond those games.

Depending on the game I'll have some beer and some chips or I'll smoke a doobie. Sometimes all three if it's a game with lots of cutscenes.

I've never played any of Arkane's previous games but I've heard online that they weren't that great. Maybe that's where the skepticism is coming from. I think the game looks rad and unless the game goes Homefront on our asses it should be an awesome late generation surprise.

Bully was terrific in a very different vibe to what's usually out there, Saint's Row 3 is as fucking insane as it is hillarious to play and Assassin's Creed II was a lot of fun as well. The first Crackdown was a lot of fun when you got good beefed up and the same goes for Infamous 2. I actually prefer the first three games to GTA IV and would put them right up there with Vice City and San Andreas.

Emma Stone is indeed a very attractive lady. Anyways, those are some pretty decent names attached to the voicework and the actors do seem excited about their work so let's hope they deliver.
