Finally completed Shadow Of Rome. Very interesting game and I liked the stealth aspects more than most, even if the AI was piss poor for most of it. Glad the game ended when it did though. The first fifteen hours or so were enjoyable but by the final five, things were all starting to become a bit repetitive.

What to play next? According to backloggery I still have 67 games I've yet to so much as load up...

I've been working on two RPG games (as the writer and artist) which will be released over the next few months so that put me in the mind to play some RPGs now that the game are near wrapping up.

Final Fantasy VII, X, XIII and Grandia are my games of choice at the moment. Wouldn't count them as my favourite RPGs (except maybe XIII), but I've played my favourites to death so what can you do? They're all great titles nonetheless so it's been fun getting into them again. Grandia, in particular as it's been over a decade since I last did a playthrough of it.

Started playing two games.

GTA III
Thus far (7 missions in) it feels a bit like Vice City but without the awesome 80's vibe. There doesn't seem to be that much to do in this game either. Hopefully it gets better as I progress.

Super Mario Sunshine
Loving this one so far. I always love it when environments are a bit bright and colourful so the tropical island setting really pleases me. I also like how it plays very much like Super Mario 64.

So, I opted to tackle Headhunter: Redemption next. Only a couple of missions in so far, but it seems like a pretty bog-standard third person shooter. The controls aren't great, the graphics aren't great, the gameplay already looks like becoming pretty repetitive and I can't see it holding my attention for too long to be honest.

Since my right hand is still stuck in a cast due to a 3 way fracture behind my 4th knuckle i've been stuck to watching Netflix and playing turned based RPGs

Lucky for me it happened during the time i was just getting into Final Fantasy Dimensions for the 1st time. =)

Ouch, that sucks. Sorry to hear that.

Anyway, I've been trying to decide on whether I want to play Fable: The Lost Chapters, Dragon Age: Origins, or Saints Row 2. Kind of in the mood for all of them, I just can't decide. As for what I've been playing, Super Mario Bros. 3 as of late.

I didn't like Fable all that much, but it has a few nice ideas to it.

I bought Dragon Age: Origins a while ago. I haven't started it yet though. I think I'm going to keep it for the summer holidays as it seems like a huge game to me.

I haven't really been playing any games regularly recently, which is weird seeing as I have nothing but free time on my hands just now. Most of what I have been playing are PC games, which is also unusual for me:

Runescape
Counter Strike: Global Offensive
Path of Exile

I actually got quite into Runescape and CS:GO for a while but I wasn't such a fan of PoE, although admittedly I didn't really invest much time in it. PoE is free btw, so if any of you like Diablo 2 type games, you might want to check it out. And it's not one of those free games that has shitty production value and is filled with micro-transactions. It's a good quality, totally free game. There are some micro-transactions, but they only cosmetically alter your character and I think it's more of a way for loyal players to contribute something back to the developers? I can imagine that a lot of people might like this game. Check it out of it sounds interesting.

Previously I was playing Final Fantasy VII, Mass Effect and LA Noire. I really need to try and finish them off at some point too before it gets to the point where I completely forget the story and decide that I have to start over...

I don't know, it's far from perfect, but I still have fun with it. Just personal preference, I suppose.

You could probably beat it in a weekend if you stuck to it, but I admit that I also like waiting until the summer holidays to get into something involved like an RPG. Having less things on your plate helps you immerse yourself better. Plus, you have more time to replay it and try different builds.

Within the past few weeks, for my PC I bought Skyrim, Hearthfire, and then proceeded to mod the hell out of it, and I'm actually having a lot of fun with it.

I have started playing GRAW and its pretty challenging. I am not completely sure how I feel about it because when I first played it it made me pretty mad. It is an older game that was suggested to me by a friend. For a penny plus shipping I figured I would give it a try.

I've also been playing this, along with Blood Dragon. Back to Borderlands 2 when the EU store updates with Krieg.

Still not really been playing anything properly but I installed Fallout the other day. The first one. I bought a compilation copy that comes with 1, 2 and Tactics a while back. Although after installing it I realised there were graphical problems. The colours were a bit wonky so I had to install the HD patch or whatever it's called. It worked though.

Then I realised how much I suck at Fallout.

After beating GTA III for the first time, I'm going to do a rerun of GTA Vice City. I think I was 14 years old since I last played Vice City, but I have very fond memories of the game. I hope it's still as good as I remember it to be.

Heh, so I made that post over a month ago and still haven't beaten Fallout. Why? Because I got side tracked by other games. Plus, I wasn't really enjoying Fallout. It's a cool game and I see why people like it but I dunno, I just find it hard to get really into it having started the series on Fallout 3, which is a significantly better game in my opinion. I know some people still love the original more.

What I ended up playing instead was Final Fantasy VII. Managed to beat that. Fantastic game btw. Now I'm playing through Final Fantasy VI, which is also really awesome. I think I prefer this over VII, just because it feels like an overall more polished game.

Once I beat this I'm struggling to decide what to move onto next. I'll either stick with Final Fantasy and play through VIII and IX or move onto something different. Dragon Quest VIII, Persona 3, Persona 4, Deadly Premonition and Alpha Protocol are all potential contenders.

It's good to have gotten back into gaming again.

I know some people still love the original more.

Fallout I/II and Fallout III are so insanely different in design, mechanics and approach that they almost feel like separate series. The original games are very much a "you had to be there" kind of thing, playing them now it's easy to identify glaring flaws. The third game took the post apocalyptic setting and ran with it, combining it with FPS/RPG elements with a sandbox world. I'm glad the success of the 3rd entry really threw the prior games into the limelight for a little more fame and exposure.

What I ended up playing instead was Final Fantasy VII. Managed to beat that. Fantastic game btw. Now I'm playing through Final Fantasy VI, which is also really awesome. I think I prefer this over VII, just because it feels like an overall more polished game.

Again, drastically different games belonging to the same series. FFVI goes full bore entirely throwing the player into the rebels shoes as you put a stop to the corrupt empire in one of the finest 2D games ever made. One of the only rpg games I know of where the villain actually accomplishes his goal. VII on the flipside starts out with a very dystopian outlook as you play a trauma induced mercenary out to rid the world of big time evil enterprise sucking the planet of it's life energy. Along the way you uncover an alien entity and it's son who goes apeshit and decides to destroy the world for M O T H E R.

They both accomplish what they set out to do, however VII suffered from that early PS1 era or primitive 3D. Safe to say it would have aged more like a fine wine if it had been 2D sprite based. (like Castlevania Symphony of the Night)

Once I beat this I'm struggling to decide what to move onto next. I'll either stick with Final Fantasy and play through VIII and IX or move onto something different. Dragon Quest VIII, Persona 3, Persona 4, Deadly Premonition and Alpha Protocol are all potential contenders.

It's good to have gotten back into gaming again.

Eventually pave your way through all the above mate! (minus Alpha Protocol bleh) Dragon Quest VIII is easily my favorite DQ game simply because Level 5 are absolute masters of their craft. The cel shading is vibrant and colorful, world full of hidden secrets, the skill/lvl up system had a hint of customization, characters were likable, story was safe but classic, yada yada blah blah

Check out Dark Cloud and more specifically Dark Cloud 2 if you play and find out you love DQ8. Ni No Kuni as well! That game is dope as fuuu dawg.

Persona 3 & 4 are both classics, you can never go wrong. I enjoyed 4 a little bit more, simply cause I was more invested in the characters/story. The music is sick, I often jam out to the OST. Living the days of this school boy only to be sucked into another world of demons and personas was a strange and enjoyable ride.

if you haven't played Persona 2, SMT Nocturne or Devil Survivor those are some other high caliber titles in the series.

Deadly Premonition! This game was shat on by reviewers internet wide, unfortunately. I can't go into any kind of detail or analysis because it will ruin the game, but after you give it a whirl come back and give opinions.

You either hate or love this game.

As for the topic I'm play Vagrant Story/Disgaea IV, still not very far in either although VS is a repeat play. (2 hrs in VS, 6 hrs in D4)
