Gaming goals of 2011 UPDATE!

Gaming goals of the year Twenty Eleven GO! 

100% LA Noire and 5 star every case.

 Progress: With the release of the last announced DLC case, I have completed this! But they said something to the effect of, "Yo, more is coming," so I'll be returning to LA at least once more (probably).  
 

Upload at least one good LittleBigPlanet2 level.

 Progress: Complete! Well, depending on your definition of "good." I think it's good. It's named "Mysterious Island...OF DOOM!" Or something to that effect. I don't remember off hand. The point is that I made one, and uploaded it. 
 

Become skilled at Marvel vs. Capcom 3

Progress: Complete!  
 

Acquire a copy of ZHP: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman

 Progress: Finished!  
 

S-Rank Deadly Premonition

Progress: There was a halfway decent deal on 360s this week at Best Buy. And of course this was also the one week when I never had a chance to get to Best Buy, and I doubt I'll get there tomorrow. And without a 360, I can't play the deadliest of premonitions.  
 

Finish Alpha Protocol (with my friend).

Progress: You won't believe this, but we actually played a bunch of it the other day! We will do it! WOO! 
 

Beat Deus Ex: Human Revolution with zero kills.

Progress: As I do not have the ability to steal a copy from Square Enix, I obviously cannot start this until the game is released. 
 

Try once again to beat Dead Rising (and probably not succeed).

Progress: I feel smart for working in the "probably not succeed" part, because without a 360, I won't succeed. 
 

Don't buy this year's Call of Duty.

Progress: Everything I have seen of this game looks heavy on turret/vehicle sequences and light on Price's amazing mustache. This'll be a piece of cake.  
 

Don't buy anything at GameStop.

Progress: The only way I would but anything there would be if they were selling new 360s for crazy low prices, and that isn't going to happen. 
 

Buy at least one Wii game.

Progress: Complete!  
 

Beat Yakuza 3, then buy/beat Yakuza 4.

Progress:  完全 Which, according to Google translate, means "Complete" in Japanese.  
 

Buy the new Mortal Kombat game, and memorize some fatalities. 

Progress: You know what back forward back forward is? One of Smoke's fatalities (and Kabal's too, and maybe someone else).  
 

Resist buying Portal 2 (or any other Valve product) until Valve gives some solid details on the next Half-Life game.

 Progress: There was once a time when a bunch of scrappy colonists were disgruntled at the oppressive British Monarchy and all their taxes and whatnot. You know what they did? They boycotted the junk! Now, admittedly the boycotts didn't work and they ended up going to war, but that's beside the point! Boycotts can work if enough people take part! Stop playing Valve games, and stop using Steam! You know it's the right thing to do! 
 

Never Give up on the other long rumored games I've been waiting for.

Progress: Never give up, NEVER SURRENDER!  
 

Get back my S-Rank in ME2.

Progress: See previous goals relating to 360 games.  
 

See every hidden Calendar Man conversation in Batman Arkham City

 Progress: Hard to play a game that isn't out yet.  
 
So, that's it. I haven't really done much since last time except play a bunch of Burnout Paradise, Beyond Good & Evil HD (which is awesome), and Pacman Championship Edition DX. 
 
And after I played that Pacman game, I dreamed about Pacman that night. PACMAN HAS TAKEN OVER MY LIFE!  
 
You could say I have some sort of illness that makes me want to play Pacman. Like a fever, and the only cure is more Pacman.

That's the kanji for complete? Rikaichan is registering it as a noun, so I guess you could add na to the end and turn it into complete.
 
I'd say that my only 2011 goal is to clear out my Steam library, and I'm pretty sure that I'll have to extend it into 2012, especially since I just got Lugaru working.

What's your Marvel team?

@Video_Game_King: All I did was go to Google Translate, set it to English to Japanese, type "complete," and then copy what it spat out. I know literally nothing about actual written Japanese.  
 
@ThePhantomnaut: I like Dante, Deadpool, and Magneto. They're pretty easy characters to be good with.

To be fair, my Japanese vocab is pretty shit (my learning strategy seems to be to get flashcards wrong until I stop getting them wrong).

Never give up on Price's 'stache. It would never give up on you, you Benedict Arnold.
