Thanks to the steam sale, I bought Game Dev Tycoon and I'm considering buying Euro Truck Sim 2. Game Dev Tycoon is pretty fun, but there are a few things that I disagreed with. One of them being that my SNES wild-west action game only got a 4.5 out of 10. Come on, I thought a Wild Guns ripoff would sell pretty well.

MOTHER 1's sandbox explorey nature and lack of many dedicated dungeons, and MOTHER 3's higher focus on the story, along with a fair amount of character switching, mean that those two dont really drag at any points.
Again, haven't touched the first game so can't comment, but that's also how I feel about Earthbound, in a way. It was still a lot of fun, but... it had lots of room for improvement.

I could write a whole essay of things that I felt could've been better, though I don't know if people would be THAT interested. I mean... it's a pretty hyped game, so I doubt that most would have an open ear for how EarthBound isn't perfect.
EB, though.... again, still awesome, just... did anybody really like going through that pyramid?
Yeah, that was a pretty... straightforward dungeon. At least it got its own unique music.

Also, I hope y'all are hyped for Mother 4. Seriously, it looks really awesome:

I started Lords of the Fallen.
It feels like a clunky Dark Souls so far. I haven't played much yet, but I don't know what I'm doing really. I beat the first boss, but it seemed like rolling did nothing most of the time, and blocking with your shield ate up too much stamina and then you'd just get combo'd into a hit.

Playing some of "Ori and the Blind Forest".

I must say: This Game is friggin awesome. It plays pretty much like a Metroidvania-Game, has incredible good graphics and awesome Soundtracks so far. A pretty much Game of the Year (and must-have) thing!
100% Approved!

I got Hammerwatch for my pals and me yesterday, it's a lot of fun, although sometimes a bit... slow.

Oh and BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger was on sale, so I got it. Jin is probably my favourite character in terms of gameplay... and maybe a bit of his psychotic personality.

raocow's Shovel Knight playthrough got me to go through it again on a much more casual pace. It was also my first experience with the Vita since I chose to play it on that. Moved right on to Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Slow start so far, but that's to be expected since I'm not used to the handheld's controls yet.

I got splatoon.

The roller brings back fond memories of playing a Spy or Pyro in Team Fortress 2.

Just finished Mother 3. It was as awesome as I thought it would be, (though it does have very subtle limitations) but man... it's terrible when you subconsciously let something in your own life parallel with something in a game that sad. :( However! I hadn't really cried over a videogame before, so it was a good experience to have. (I also considered myself to have a bad reputation of not really caring when I watch-play something, which I didn't really notice until I watched Clannad)

I might take a while before I play the first Mother, even though that's what I plan on playing next, because I'll have to work on a few other things first.

Started Alan Wake again for my bajillionth playthrough, this time on Steam and with enable developer commentary. <3 that game so much. I hope Quantum Break comes out soon so I'll get to find out if Remedy will do a proper sequel. Hell, I'd be happy with any kind of continuation/adaptation of anything Alan Wake-related. More Live-Action, please. I need more Ilkka Villi in my life.

A fantastic, well-put-together game. My favorite contestant level was probably either HOW DOES MOLES, Manic Mechanisms or Subterranean Canal.

Been playing Dungeons of Dredmor with mods nonstop.
Having your game slow down to an hour/turn because of a stupid item is pretty bad.

As a side thing I've been doing a DKC trilogy runthrough.

Just cleared DKC2, on to DKC3. I'll go back for 101/102/103% afterwards, I think.

Getting more used to the controls in the Uncharted Vita game is making it easier to go through. Still managed to walk off a cliff a couple of times though. Oops. Anyway, I'm liking it. For all the silly stuff of touching the screen to do certain controls, I'm not sure that's all that more silly than jamming on a button like you would on the PS3 ones.

At World 4 in Yoshi's Island
I swear 100%ing More Monkey Business would be near impossible if not for that accidental extra red coin in the SNES version

also marching milde is inherently funny to me

I started playing Tales of the Abyss a few days ago... it's actually surprisingly good so far. Leagues better than Symphonia. For starters, the dialogue is actually *funny*, as opposed to Symphonia's attempts at "slapstick" that did little more than make me cringe. As a victim of frequent bullying growing up, I found absolutely *nothing* even remotely funny about what seemed to me like a perfectly normal, likeable kid getting mercilessly insulted by his so-called "friends", however popular that stupid cliche seems to be in Japan. Luke in Tales of the Abyss gets just as much crap, true, but being that he's a rude, arrogant little bastard, who can dish it out as well as take it, it comes across as funny and karmic rather than painful. Especially since his allies *still* treat him better, on the whole, than Lloyd's "friends" tended to treat him in Symphonia.

The battle system is better, as well; it makes a great deal more sense than other Tales games I've tried, though I'm still not 100% sure on how new skills are learned, and a few other random mechanics elude me thus far. But it's still early, so I'll figure them out in due time.

Plot-wise, I'm finding it amusing how my entire team, except for the protagonist, seem to be independently withholding obviously important info about various "secret missions" they're on from each other. Talk about the left hand literally not trusting the right hand. Something tells me that this is eventually going to lead to someone, probably Luke, doing something terrible as a result of simply not knowing what the hell everyone else is up to. JRPG logic!

Also, I couldn't help but laugh when I first viewed the "Records" screen, which keeps track of the percentage of battles each playable character has been involved in... with the names prominently displayed from the start. Not blanked out or anything. Just, "here, have a list of everyone who joins". Which, given that one of them has been introduced so far as a *villain*... welp. Way to spoil a plot twist, guys. :P

I briefly sampled that game, and it seems good. But for some reason, the Y button on my 360 controller *always* pauses the game... even if I set it to something else (I want that to be the "special attack" button)... and even disabling controller support and using JoyToKey, it *still* happens. Is this some kind of, I dunno, very sneaky anti-piracy trick, or... ?

Yes, that sounds about right. I've heard pretty much all of those lines, and frankly, I'm worried. :P

Almost at the halfway point in Uncharted: Golden Abyss now. A lot less combat which is not surprising considering Sony Bend usually does collectibles and stealth thanks to the Syphon Filter games I played on the PSP. Levels are also more compact, so treasures are pretty easy to find if you're paying attention. There was one chapter that required the gyro controls. I don't mind this stuff, but I can see that this is a Vita tech demo in spots. It's fun.
