Well, I played for about 6 hours last night, so that says something.  About an hour and a half was spent on fishing.

SSB4 for 3DS is getting so close! October 3rd can't come soon enough.

*giggles* I loved the fishing too!! Especially the effects when fed to your pet.

I imagine the townsfolk must be somewhat confused when a ferret spontaneously explodes into chunks of gore to form a dragon...I'll admit, it's one of two games where I actually cared about the pets. =P

OMG, I did too. I felt bad when I fed them the fish and wanted to assure them it was only for a little while.

Honestly, the game itself reminds me a lot of Diablo II, which I have found memories of, even if I only played it for a small amount of time. Of course, I'd love it even more if I could manage to find an orange-named polearm. :|

I want to play Ace Combat IV the Unsung War again. That was THE best flyer game ever. It had one of the best stories to a modern day game and a diverse set of aircraft....if you have a PS2 and you see it at a flea market. BUY. IT.

*blows dust off the thread*

So, I just came across this today

http://www.pcgamer.com/mod-of-the-week-the-long-war-for-xcom/

Has anyone tried this?

I enjoyed the new XCOM, after I added the Enemy Within stuff, but expanding on that and making the game longer? Oh hell, yes :)

I haven't downloaded it yet (you need to register with the side first, though that seems to be free), but figured I'd check if anyone else here had experience with it already.

I have played Long War, yes. Basically, if you want a game that feels a little more like oldschool X-com with more deployable soldiers and customization, you might like it. It's much harder than Enemy Within, and while some parts were kind of bullshit back in earlier versions, I feel it's more balanced now. If you want to try Firaxis's X-com with a new style and feel, Long War is definitely a good choice.

Apparently ten pages have gone by since I checked this.

I've mostly been playing Fantasy Life and the new SSB. I've been waiting for the new pokemon games and I know I'll be playing those day and night.

If I still have money (since I'm about to go on an Amazon book buying spree in a few minutes) I think I'll pick up that Persona Q thing.

But as always, I still have a long list of games I've never beat.

Shadow of Mordor.

It just feels good. n.n

Also, new DLC just dropped adding a challenge mode and a female character skin (which I'd hoped for from the start, glee~). I currently have the #1 Elite score on the leaderboard. :D

The expansion is brilliant; a clear improvement over the original in nearly every way.

Got convinced to try out the 14 day trial of the re-release of FFXIV online.

No complaints thusfar... given the massive failure that was the original release and the fact that I was deeply, deeply disappointed given I was a die-hard FFXI online player for years before they started trying to make themselves in to a WoW wannabe and killed everything that made the game amazing.

14 online has taken all the things that were incredible about 11 and blended it with the good things WoW and other MMOs brought to the table and had blended them in to a visually stunning world with highly entertaining game play. I've only been playing for a few hours total but it's been enough that I think I may just have to buy the game on my next pay check (next Friday).

With so many great games practically costing nothing now on the PS3 I have picked up a few good ones....BUT PLEASE DO NOT BUY DARKVOID. You will scratch your head at the plot. And think of the Gameplay as Gears of War with a Jetpack. It's not worth it.

I'm surprised by how Marvel Ultimate Alliance Gold holds up with me to this day. Picked it up at GS, it is a rare gem to see now.

Been replaying Assassin's Creed IV. It's arguably more fun just to sail around at my own leisure and be a pirate than any other game I've played in the last year.

Best grimdark remake of Sid Meier's Pirates! Ever. :3
