I purchased a Neo Geo Pocket Colour and a couple games a few weeks ago. It arrived on Thursday. Been having a blast with King of Fighters R2 and Puzzle Link. It's hard getting used to no backlight again, but that's how it was back then.
Oh yeah Neo Geo Pocket color FTW. So much potential and a lot of solid games. A bit too heavy on the fighting games but it was SNK after all. The lack of backlight isnt too bad. Definitely bettter than handhelds like the Wonderswan. I wish more handhelds had copied the 8 way joystiq.

Titan Quest with the expansion pack. Out of all the Diablo clones, this one is the best and much better than Diablo 3 turned out.

Playing one of my favorite PC games of all time.




anyone feel this series took a nosedive once Ubisoft took over and decided it needed more action and less strategy?

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I picked up Xenoblade Chronicles for the Wii, and it's absolutely outstanding. The over-the-top British voice acting is great, the battle system is addicting, and the story and setting are really great. The only problem is that it looks like a game from about 2006, but that's easy enough to ignore once you get into it. Highly recommended, almost seems like a better Final Fantasy game than the last few, and I loved FFXII and XIII!

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I recently picked up the Syberia & Syberia II bundle on Steam. I played Syberia back when it came out and really loved it, but somehow never got around to playing the sequel. Right now I'm replaying the first game (which I'm happy to say has held up well to my memories of it) and then it's on to the second. Also looking into LIMBO in parallel.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

After taking a few months off, I started playing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood again. It's fun, but it's also kind of annoying because half the missions I seem to only get 50% Synchronization or whatever it is. "Do this mission completely undetected." "Aw, fuck, one guard saw me. Fail."

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I knew it was going to suck. I knew I was throwing money away. I knew I was giving money to a horrible developer so that they could go on making more horrible games, but I just couldn't resist. Nostalgia was too strong.

That's right, I picked up Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1. It's not a terrible game, or even a bad game at that, but it's so crummy and unpolished. The original Sonic games on the Genesis are, to me, the best platformers ever made. This one is between mediocre and decent. What happened to you Sega?

And you know what the worst thing is? I'm still going to buy Episode 2.

I've been in kind of a WW2 mood lately, so I started playing through Call of Duty 2 again last night. Still just as much fun as I remembered it being.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Been back and forth with a lot of games: Skyrim, Transformers- War For Cybertron, Silent Hill- Downpour. At this point l'm just killing time, waiting for the Dawnguard DLC for Skyrim and the new Amazing Spider-Man game.

Finished up AC: Brotherhood last night, and I'm about ready to start Revelations.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Just started the Amazing Spider-Man. So far, its pretty amazing. l didn't play the last two Spidey games from Beenox, but l can already tell these guys know what they're doing. l haven't done too many missions yet though, since l've been too busy swinging around and collecting comic book pages (there are 700 of them).

Once l get bored of nabbing purse snatchers, l'm gonna download DAWNGUARD.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

About halfway (I assume) through AC: Revelations. It's getting a little bit tiresome; granted, I did play the last two AC games immediately before this, so I'm just getting a little bored with it. I just want the story to move along faster so I can figure out what the hell is going on with Altair, Ezio, and Desmond. Does the world end? Does the Apple of Eden destroy us all? Why the hell did Desmond murder Lucy at the end of the last game? WHY IS ALL THIS HAPPENING?!

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I like the Assassin's Creed series, but the games are just so alike that you are really just paying for the story. There is only so much free running around Common Era Europe that one can do before it becomes tedious.

I've been really into my Gamebryo games as of late, played Skyrim intensively for a month before picking up Fallout: New Vegas and exhausting the game. I'm now onto Fallout 3, which I enjoy more than NV, despite there being less quests and character personality options (the faction stuff in NV made a lot of the game).

I'm not too fussed about Dawnguard, mainly because I've bored myself of Skyrim something silly! I'm anxiously awaiting the Square-Enix announcement that Final Fantasy XIII-3 is going ahead. (and a bonus if XV is announced as a regular console RPG and not another fucking MMO that fails to deliver all that it promises!)
