I've always enjoyed the Heroes series and played all of them up to 3 (maybe 4, but I don't remember, it was a long time ago.) I enjoyed what I played of it. When searching online and found that there was a 6 already and I could get 1-5 plus the expansions in one bundle. My brother has the disks for the previous versions, so I used the amazon gift cards I got for xmas and picked up all 6 games and the expansions. 6 came in the mail yesterday and the 1-5 collection should be waiting for me when I get home. It'll be fun to go back through starting with Heroes 1 and playing each game. I am interested in what changes were made as of 6 cuz' I hear they did away with the large number of resources, it'll be fun seeing how that will play out.

Oh, and since I beat AC3 I decided it was high time to go back and start playing some of my PS1 RPGs I've been neglecting. So first up on my list is Lunar 2. I forgot how unforgiving that game is with the first dungeon if you don't spend time leveling in the first area. I died 3 times before I remembered that I can save anywhere and actually started saving frequently. Lost a good 2 hours of gameplay due to that ^^()

I got some Steam gift certificates for Christmas, so I was able to snag quite a lot of awesome stuff over the holiday sales period. Been playing some Dead Island coop with the other half and laughing at all the wonky animations, started Sleeping Dogs and am enjoying it so far, and I've been playing the shit out of Far Cry 3 which is amazing amounts of fun. Thankfully it fixed a lot of the issues I had with Far Cry 2, so it's been worth the money.

Been playing Half Life: Source and Persona 4 Golden.

I really like the additions to Golden so far, even though I hate the fact that Marie exists.

I've been going back and forth between Assassin's Creed 3 and Silent Hill Downpour the last few days. Looking forward to Tuesday with Ni No Kuni!

Guild Wars 2: Mac BETA!!!

Since its FINALLY on a Mac, I gave it a whirl. Gosh, the graphics are cool. Elementalists are fun. I was never really a Mage-type but this game makes it worth playing that class.

Took me about 3 hours to get a good grip on the controls and basic combos. But man, it brings me back to the days where I could spell combo with Rita from Tales of Vesperia. I miss my kitty cat caster.

Dynamic events are fun. But the lack of a mount makes it feel like I'm dependent on the teleports (which cost money).

I'll juggle this and WoW (cuz I still like it)
Almost as hard as fighting a Holy Paladin.

So I'm committed to it now. I made my first video of a blind Let's Play today. Although I have been dubious about it, my brother took a chance and bought me DmC Devil May Cry a few days ago (belated Christmas present). Since I don't get ahold of new and current things very often, I decided that this was a good time to finally make a Let's Play. Still gotta combine the audio and the face cam and export the video, but soon I'll finally have something to put up on that LP channel I made on YouTube over a year ago.

As for my opinions on the game... well, I'll reserve those until I get a ways into it. It's too early yet, but I'll admit that I have been neither disappointed nor impressed as of yet - which is already better than I was hoping for.

I just finished Far Cry 3 an hour ago, so I'm thinking of replacing that with Skyrim or Fallout New Vegas (probably gonna be Skyrim). Though it's going to be a while until I start up another open world game.
I've been playing Assassin's Creed III in little bursts. I want to find out what happens story-wise, but I just can't get into this game. It's so bad compared to its predecessors ;___;
I'm gonna start playing some Magicka with friends if I can catch them at the right times. I just recently uninstalled League of Legends because that game took up waaaaay too much of my time. >__>
Still trying to 100% Batman: Arkham City. A few more trophies and I can finally fight the Riddler! :D
And lastly, I just bought a fightstick yesterday so I'm gonna start playing UMvC3 and maybe some SF4.

atm, Corspe Party: Book of Shadows on my PSP.

Playing the original is pretty much required to know what's going on here. And if you haven't played the original Corspe Party yet ... why are you waiting? It's one of the best JRPG Horror games you can get, and Book of Shadows has turned up the horror dial to 11. Well worth the asking price. :sweat:

(Yep, haven't upgraded yet... still waiting for Sony to publish more than the 1 game that would make a Vita worth it. Also, not really looking forward to buying more memory cards and re-downloading all my PSN purchases -_-; )

Just beat Disgaea 3. Now I just gotta beat Disgaea 2 (which I'm almost done I think) and 4 (haven't started yet) before Disgaea D2 comes states side, if it comes states side. Hopefully it comes states side anyways.

Taking a break from Persona 4 Golden and Pokemon Black 2. Decided to continue my run of Persona 1. Although I might put that on halt again to play Digital Devil Saga.

I'm also doing a Dark-Only run of Pokemon Ruby. Currently on the 8th gym, so I should be able to finish that tonight.

I'm on Mission 08 of DmC Devil May Cry, and thus far, I'm not terribly impressed. The game isn't bad, but it just reminds me too much of DMC2 with a shiny coat of paint, a lot more swearing, and Nero's Devil Bringer brought back in a different disguise. I want to like it. I really do. It still has plenty of time to turn around, but so far things aren't looking up.

I'm on my third playthrough of Dead Space 2 on a trophy grind to kill the time before 3 hits the shelves on Tuesday. About the only thing that keeps me apprehensive is the first stalker encounter in chapter 4. Maybe it's the creepy atmosphere and the lack of lighting in the basilica, but the other times I run into them (even the "enhanced" versions) it's just picking them off from a distance.

One more thing - the Ripper may not be the most practical weapon in the game, but when you're being swarmed by those little pale screaming bastards (the pack, I think), it sure is the most satisfying one to use...

Just beat Disgaea 2, and that was quite a surprising twist. Just started Disgaea 4, and probably gonna work on Pokemon White as well and maybe start on Mario Kart 7.

Also debating whether or not to get a new PSP since the current one's starting get these lines that appears to copy and shift pixels to the left, and the longer it's on it seems more lines appear (they used to be pretty transparent at first and on the left side, but now they aren't really transparent and there's a couple forming on the right and middle). Unfortunately I can't find a fix for this, since most fixes I find are for a different type of lines than the ones described. And there's a still a few PSP games I've still to finish/play.

I just picked up Apollo Justice Ace Attorney and Professor Layton and the Curious Village a few days ago.

I haven't started on Layton yet but so far Apollo Justice is fun. I've only played the 1st Ace Attorney and I really enjoyed it but because I skip 2&3 I'm a little lost on some of the characters. I haven't played the Layton games before but I've been told good things so I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully they'll release the crossover game here.

Also almost done with Ni No Kuni as well and wow this game is just amazing.
