Been casually playing a randomizer FireRed/LeafGreen on my laptop. Nuzlocke Pokemon Diamond too, but those are more or less just for when I'm traveling or not in front of anything else.
Also, tomorrow Mother 3 speedrun for the "New Year's Bomb". XD

I agree, that is an amazing game. I have been scratching a recent JRPG itch I've had and have been playing Persona 4 Golden and Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention. Picked up Resonance of Fate and Valkyria Chronicles also. Also planning on getting Ragnarok Odyssey sometime soon.

Copped the PS3 version of Resonance Of Fate on Christmas Eve and just beat it this morning around 6 before I went to class. One of the most original JRPGs I've ever played in my life. The reviews have been mostly good but it's a sin that most people haven't played it. After 72 hours I highly enjoyed it.
Only 3 characters you play as but they are highly customizable level progession wise and attire wise and the storyline for them and the overall plot is like a steampunked version of Cowboy Bebop/Samurai Champloo where it tells their backstories and the plot little by little after each of the 16 chapters. Story's a great mix of comedy and drama along with some romance and I liked the fact that they threw in some Christianity in the mix. The graphics for the characters and certain environments are highly detailed but there are some mediocre, dull, and repetitive dungeon designs, didn't bother me much. You can spend hours customizing your weapons with it's lego-like system, music's hit or miss but this game is custom music enabled which was a HUGE plus to me. Sidequests are everywhere, I was so glad most of 'em aren't like most JRPGs where after you do most NPCs' requests you immediately receive the reward instead of backtracking to the NPCs for them. The world maps has a fresh spin on them where you use puzzle hexes to open the different world maps as you travel by receiving them from the enemies and NPCs. Sorta like Banjo-Kazooie. And the battle system.................GOOD LORD the battle system is so righteous and original for the JRPG genre, best aspect of the game period. Strategy mixed with real time action with a hyped up twist, I'll just say The Matrix and leave that alone.
I'm done. If you haven't played this, play it. Of the 2010 JRPGs that came out, I still like Nier the most, but I liked ROF slightly more than FF13. One of the best JRPGs from the Sega brand along with Panzer Dragoon Saga, Skies Of Arcadia, Valkyria Chronicles, the Phantasy Star series and others.
