Hahahahaha, Tingle is so weird.

Technically I'm playing Tetris on my laptop, but I've really been playing a ton of Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten lately. I swear, the thing is addictive. :lol:

Just got the Wii U recently, so I've been playing Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate and Hyrule Warriors a lot.

I'm not playing any games right now, but I am waiting for the Linux port of Metro 2033 Redux to finish downloading so I can play it! I'm stoked!

This is a bit niche but it's worth a mention. My latest game I've been playing is Eryi's Action, the spiritual sequel to Shobon Action, a little platformer game famous (in Japan) for being quite unfair.

Currently playing Harvest Moon Magical Melody. Have 80/100 music notes, a wife, a new baby, and a bunch of animals. :)

A lot of the townspeople like eggs as gifts for some reason. lol

Taking a break from Harvest Moon --just started playing Mario RPG. The fighting system took a bit to get used to (it's slightly different from Paper Mario as far as timing and how to select options), but this is a fun game so far. Love the humor. :)

Rune Factory 4: a definite improvement on the series. I look forward to their next game.

Tales of the Abyss 3DS - I have no words to describe how much I am enjoying this. The characters, the gameplay, and the dialog....ohhh the dialog XD I am loving this game so far, and look forward to seeing where it takes me.

Little King's Story - definitely unique, though its so easy to get lost when your kingdom's too big XD still, quite enjoyable, though very strange in some places. Not for the series of heart.

The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.
Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.

Me and my sister are currently on disc 4 of FFIX. We picked it back up like a month ago. This game needs more love, it has such a sad story.

FFIX is really good, the reason it didn't do very well in the US is that it came out almost at the same time the PS2 did, Sony was hyping up the PS2 and Square was hyping up The Bouncer, and I wouldn't be surprised if FFX had been previewed as well. I mean, I had a subscription to Game Informer (it was free for a long time from Gamestop) and I didn't even know that FFIX existed until I walked in the game store one day and saw it on the shelf and went "Wait, there's a ninth one?"

On top of that, due to how the PS1 (and upcoming PS2) did graphics, people were hoping for more realistic and gritty looking graphics, and having a bunch of SD style characters and a guy with a tail probably rubbed a lot of US audiences the wrong way. I think maybe people were also hoping for the FF series to continue to get more and more futuristic, as had been happening with 6-8, and having one that was a throwback may have been seen as a step in the wrong direction.

All that said it really is a fantastic game that was probably the peak of annoying and useless minigames in the FF series, and the card game was DEFINITELY way worse than Triple Triad. I also have slight issues with the ability learning system but it's not too big a deal.

Oh man, I LOVED FFIX, but I can never tell if that's because it's legit good or just because it was my first jrpg. Zidane x Garnet still one of my favorite pairings of all time.

Speaking of jrpgs, I've been continuing the Sora no Kiseki series which seems to get endless praise as one of the best jrpgs ever. Thoroughly enjoying it, particularly the battle system. The quests can get obnoxious at times though.

I've been semi-obsessively playing Don't Starve. Wow, I'm surprised at how much I enjoy this game. I've managed to die about 20 times, but not once by starving! Yay, I win!

Just wait til you get that dungeon's item, which is simultaneously the lamest and coolest item in the game.

Twilight Princess is my favorite Zelda game of all time!

But I'm still grinding away in Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate on my new WiiU. I've reached high rank and am now working together with my brother to climb even higher! Man, that game is frustrating and addicting at the same time. It's given me a lot of inspiration for monster for the RPGs I GM, though...

I really want to play that game. I wanted to have it since I saw the trailer back when it first came out in japanese. What got me interested was

1.Future Trunks as an important part of the game (who is one of my favorite characters)
2.Character Creation
3.New Storyline
4.Some New Characters

(All in that order)

Story of Seasons. I've had it since last Thursday and have played nearly forty hours so far. SPOILER: Highlight text to read: I was surprised when Eda died. They haven't killed of a townsperson in so many years. I cried during her funeral. I'm so glad that I can still visit the grave now. I named my cat (in game) after her in honor of her. Winter season is always so slow for me. I've been going to the Safari a lot more lately, hoping to get some silver or gold. I haven't found a single piece yet and I need it for the cheese factory. I also can't wait to unlock Suffolk sheep and alpacas. Not only are they adorable, they also provide the wool I need for some outfits I want to make. Looks like I'll need to build another barn for my wool-producing animals.

Yeah, Pokemon Shuffle gives you 500 free coins a day as long as you connect to the internet, and every tenth time it's 1000 coins. Even though a lot of stages in Shuffle are purposely designed to be basically impossible without buying power ups, the free coins add up over time. In addition, you get jewels every time you beat a Mega Evolution, and they generally give out free jewels for contests and whatnot, which you can save up and trade for coins in the store too. On top of that, you get 100 coins the first time you beat a stage, and 30 every time you beat it thereafter. The Meowth stage also has coins in it too, so there's that as well. Point is you get a LOT of free coins.

Rumble World, not so much. You can only earn diamonds the King's challenges once (though you can do them multiple times) and you generally only get 9 to 11 diamonds from them. You get diamonds for every x number of people you meet through calling online/spotpass but that isn't a lot either. Streetpass hits give more diamonds but it takes a lot of hits to get diamonds from that, and if you live in a town where you don't get a lot of streetpass hits then that doesn't help.

Apparently however if you buy the maximum amount of diamonds possible in the eshop which costs I think 30 bucks total, you get an item that gives you 20 free diamonds every day. That's really cool that they did that, but it doesn't help much if you really don't want to spend real money on the game, because free diamonds are just way too hard to come by.

Oh, I meant Monster Hunter haha. Dark Souls I'm already familiar with. It's a fantastic game, however rage-inducing and tedious it may be.




Finished up Metro 2033 Redux. I was really impressed with this shooter. Scary moments that were genuinely terrifying. There was frequently an immersive sense of urgency because of the scarcity of the games' resources. Simple but fun stealth combat. Engaging story enhanced by the standard "collectible journal" entries. There was even a scene where the player can reflect on God for a moment. It took place in the ruins of an Orthodox church before a wall adorned with icons of the saints and Christ. It was short but I really appreciated it being there and the somber, respectful tone it had

Metro is definitely the most Russian thing I've ever experienced. More Russian than vodka-induced polar bear club swims. All the spoken Russian was kinda fascinating.

Started up Metro: Last Light immediately afterwards. It may as well be a gigantic Metro 2033 expansion pack. But more Metro 2033 is what I wanted, so that's not at all a complaint.
