Romancing SaGa 3 was awesome. I beat it about 10 years ago without a guide when I was still in High School. It was very time-consuming and I got stuck several times because it's open world and there's a lot of events and whatnot that aren't triggered until you talk to X npc or do Y thing. It was still a lot of fun and felt like a real accomplishment when I got to the end. The last boss fight was HARD! He got stronger as the fight went on and then put out an aura that did damage to you every round in addition to his attacks AND you had a time limit. If you didn't kill him fast enough, game over.

I didn't like Bahamut Lagoon very much. I didn't get very far in that one. The little bit of story I saw was largely uninteresting to me and the gameplay didn't do much for me either.

Treasure Hunter G seemed pretty cool from what I remember of it. It's been a long time since I've played it. I honestly don't remember why I stopped or much of anything else about the game, story-wise. I suppose that itself is an indication of how much impact the game left on me. Pretty much all I remember was the combat system was unique and honestly, pretty cool.

So yeah....there's Shulk. Was he actually announced yet? I don't seem to recall seeing anything about him before.

I really liked Alundra. It's basically a clone of old school Zelda and the localization was really well done. It also has multiple weapon types and jumping!

Hands down the best PC gamepad for your money would be this one right here. I've never been more satisfied with a controller for my PC and that includes using a 360 controller. It's got a switch on the back that lets you switch between xinput (360 controller) and direct input (old school gamepad for compatibility with older games.)

Also, have you ever played a side-scroller on your pc only to have it force you to use the joystick for movement because that's considered the primary directional input? That's what the mode button on the front of the logitech gamepad is for. It swaps the primary directional input between the gamepad and joystick for those kinds of situations. All around, it's a quality gamepad for the money and has versatility that you won't get from a 360 controller. It's good. Seriously.

For those of you not in the know, Renegade X is a free (not free to play; just free) remake of the multiplayer component for Command & Conquer: Renegade. As I understand it, they have permission from EA to do so as long as they don't try to make any profit from it. It's been in the works for years now and started as a mod for Unreal Tournament 3. Today, they just released a new trailer along with the release date for their standalone version. It's now set to be released February 26, 2014.

Anyone else here have fond memories of the original Renegade? I'm really excited for this as there's really not many other RTS/FPS hybrid games out there. At least not any that have managed to fill the gap renegade left. If you're interested in getting a taste of the gameplay, they also made a short single player campaign you can download here.

I'm concerned that my beloved Shin Megami Tensei games might stop coming over now.

I'm a big fan of the Wizardry series. If you're into dungeon crawlers then I highly recommend it. You can get Wizardry 8 here. They also have 6 and 7 bundled together.

If they do then we can start calling them Squatlus!

I just finished the game today. I had 52 children and my time was 6:41. I was level 84. It was a lot of fun!
