I thought maybe my hands were too small so I had a guy-friend try it and he couldn't do it either. The Z button (is that the purple one on top? If not, whatever the purple one on top is) it also kind of awkward. The other shoulder button is big and contoured around your finger, and then that other button is small and tucked away, it's hard to find. I feel like I'm playing hide-and-seek with the controller every time I try to play a Gamecube game.
I can attest to all of this, though to its credit, I do love how it grips. Also, DAT D-PAD. Playing Ikaruga and Muramasa with the Gamecube controller is a nightmare. Shit always makes my thumb sore. My problem with Prime is that it felt awkward using the left stick to look around in addition to moving. Plus those damn 8-day gates, both the internal and the external. Some other consoles' analog sticks have them, but the Gamecube's are obnoxious. I DON'T NEED ASSISTED ANALOG EVERY 45 DEGREES OF THE WAY.

I got sucked into Way of the Samurai 3 and remembered why I liked the series so much. I beat it on normal finally (stupid cheap opponents!) and have seen two different endings so far. I can't say it's very... um, good. But I love seeing all of the different story bits from different sides and slowly learning more about the world. I am also a sucker for Sengoku era Japan thanks to Samurai Warriors, sigh.

Returning it tomorrow anyway. I'll buy it once it's lower priced!

Replaying Panzer Dragoon Saga on the Saturn, using a walkthrough this time so I don't miss anything. (there's some areas in the game that you can never go back to)

Also replaying Bangai-O for Dreamcast. That final boss = FUCKIN' HAX.

I picked up House of the Dead 2&3 for the Wii and am trying to plow my way through two whenever I get frustrated with Final fantasy Tactics.

Coming from PAX East, I managed to play some Crackdown 2, Death Smile, Blazblue: CS, Shank, the new Behemoth title, Steel Battalion, and asston of games older than the majority of the users on the website.

That being said, PAX was also glorious, and should be experienced by anyone who's ever held a controller.

Just finished Mass Effect 2 and moving on to FFXIII.

Hows progress? ME2 can be 6 hours or 30 hours depending on your desire for 100% completion.

Just Dance. Finally, a Wii game that I like! Yes, the motion control is still sucky, but I don't really care since I mostly just see it as a new and amusing way to avoid becoming a complete lard-ass. It's not as fun as DDR (and definitely needs better songs) but it's a much better workout than Wii Fit. On the downside - I now have that damn Spice Girls song stuck in my head.

I'm returning it today, but I spent most of the last few days playing Yakuza 3. Why didn't anyone tell me these games are basically Shenmue on steroids?! Awesome. I don't quite have the money to justify this game yet, but I could see myself buying it sometime.
