Haven't even gotten the third dungeon weapon yet. But I did just get the greatest horse ever. <3<3<3

"I've got a horse made of black death. It fights dragon's like a boss..."

Seriously though, the first boss is awful. It's not about being able to aim well or not, it's about the game's systems tripping over themselves. Locking on to the boss with L2, marking your targets with L1, switching to aim mode with R3, trying to get a bead on the boss with the right stick, then hoping you have enough time to actually shoot the boomerang...ugh. I recently made a video about Jet Set Radio how that game came out in a time where people didn't quite know how control schemes work. But now we do, and there's no excuse for that.

The second boss is just terrible because it's so easy. It's blitheringly simple to figure out what you need to do because there's only 1 or two things there to interact, then it's just repeating it over and over and over with no fear of death because the boss can't hit you if you're where you need to be, and the little guys it spawns give you health if you 1 shot them.

Plus the game locked up on me 3 times during the first boss fight while I was going into the pause menu.

::Shakes fist:: Game...

Probably the most interesting thing about that game is the fact that Mark Hamil is doing the voice of your Navi-style character, but he sounds more like Steve Blum doing StarScream.

You should stop playing FF13 and go straight to Lost Odyssey.

Played like 30 mins of Dragon Quest Wars, a little over an hour of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, and a half hour of Samurai Warriors Chronicles. I'll get to Zelda soon, and Paper Mario is still on its way. So, I'm enjoying my 3DS quite a bit!

I am regretting not bringing my 3DS to work today only because I'd like to bring it with me on a walk and get more pedometer steps, woop.

Gonna try to finish Final Fantasy XIII-2 this weekend (currently searching for graviton cores... how annoying) and also play a ton more 3DS. YAY THREE DAY WEEKEND!

The third boss sucks ass. You do the same thing over and over and over. And over. And over. And it is identical to the mid-boss. And on the way there, you have to fight through a mob. Not hard, but not interesting either. I'm enjoying the game less and less as it goes along.

Speaking of controls - holding O to drag while also holding triangle to punch it? Awk-ward. And the third boss forces you to switch quickly between R1 and R2. Not quite as bad, but still felt weird for me.

But I still love the horse.

Every time he opens his mouth I automatically say, "Shut up." It's a reflex reaction. I can't help it.

Tell me about it! I didn't think it sucked as much as the third one, because instead of doing the same thing over and over and over and over and over again, you only had to do it over and over and over. Only two more areas so I'll finish it. I'm going to consult my sources about the bosses in Darksiders 2 though, and if it's the same damn thing, I'll skip it.

On The Glorious PC Master-Box: Spec Ops: The Line AKA a game that is super-well written by has some camera/control issues here and there. Also I found several mods that more or less give you super-powers in Saints Row the 3rd, so some co-op in that happend.

On the Peasant Station 3- Anarchy Reigns. Finished Jack's Campaign, have 2 levels left on the White path.

Mobile- Angry Birds Rio was free for a day on iOS devices, and yo, I am not going to say no to Angry Birds.

What in particular about it makes you want to play the second one? (Serious question - I'm not snarking.)

Haven't finished it yet because I got sucked back into Dark Souls by Zwei. After co-oping on Saturday, I decided to see if I could Onebro it. Currently rocking a blue-skinned blue-haired SL1 Pyro in Sen's Fortress.

NICE. I'm currently being summoned to invade the woods every minute as a SL 104 Bandit with that +5 zaphander.
