Did a ton of Halo firefight online with some bros this past weekend, which was suprisingly fun. But I imagine Reach will return to it's case after I pick up Catherine tomorrow.

Finished Bastion over the weekend.

Ya'll seriously need to get that game if you haven't already. Looks like for the 3rd year in a row, an XBLA game is going to be the 360's game of the year.

Valkyria Chronicles 3 DLC extra episodes. All of them are awesome, but my favorite one has to be Radi Jaegar's, which takes place after his defeat by Squad 7 at Vasal.

Been playing Old World Blues. Barely got to play it last week because I had a con last weekend, but this week is ALL GOOD. So last night I played a bunch. It's really well done! I love the new music, too. New Vegas has such a lackluster radio station selection compared to Fallout 3, so it's nice to have new tunes.

I also bought the new Dragon Age 2 DLC that came out today. But I'm still at work so I can't play that one until later. I haven't decided if I want to play it immediately or try to get farther in Old World Blues first. Hmmmm.

Tomb Raider, CHronicles was ass, Anniversary is... less ass.

Still don't quite see all the hype.

Want to be playing Catherine, found out my GameStop order I entered in JUNE is still in 'Verifying', haven't been getting a clear answer from GameStop either.

Local, trustworthy small gamestore chain's owner reports having special edition copies on hand, depending on the GS answer, I'll cancel and switch. Normally the smaller chains aren't always able to get special editions, but heck, if he did this time around, I'm gonna get it tomorrow.

EDIT: Nobody still has a clue at GameStop if it shipped out or not. Cancelled and took up the local gamestore chain's owner's offer, switched my reservation to him.

At least I won't be paying obnoxious shipping charges on that one.

Getting really bummed at hearing about the writing in Catherine. Hope it's just one man's opinion, but it's an opinion I trust on things like this...so I'm pretty worried.

Also, all the summer of arcade games can be purchased from the microsoft site RIGHT NOW. Just bought From Dust and Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. Were I at home, I would be playing them right now, but I am still at work, because Premiere CS4 is a big stack of shit.

I'm on Chapter 4, and yeah, no beef with the writing at all. It's believeable, and the dub for this game is really solid. I'm not saying it's up there with Portal 2 for GOTY, but it's arguably the best game to drop on shelves since P2's release.

Also, Jeremy Parish wrote a review on the game that's worth your time, as he's probably the ONLY writer a 1GNup worth listening to:

Last few days I was playing Hyperdimension Neptunia and gave up on it because it was the worst JRPGs I ever played. Thank goodness I rented that game. Anyways besides that I am playing the first Space Quest.

Dragon Age II: Legacy is a lot of fun! But I also adoooore DA2 so. It was nice having a new quest and a new area to explore. I would have played it all night, but my boyfriend stopped me so we could watch TV. >>;

Broke down and ordered the Catherine DE on Amazon. Damn it all, I wish there weren't so many great vidya gaims this year so I could save for Youmacon, or possibly going to AX in 2013...

Been playing (and surprisingly kicking ass in) Bad Company 2. Sniping, C4'ing, and calling in mortar strikes has never been so satisfying. There's so much bitching, whining, and MAD on the servers, though. Shit gets hysterical if you actually ask, "You mad?" It's SRS BSNS errywhere.

SPOILER: (highlight to read)
And I love it. They so mad...

Played the beginning of From Dust.

That game has a few problems.

Just Chapter 3 here, and I don't see it.

I'm really used to people online bitching about the simplest things in games or stuff they don't have a single clue about (Everytime non-developers talk about "development cycles", my eyes twitch).

Honestly, I really like what they've done with the game, the concept is simple... yet it's still challenging and fun. Playing on Normal is also a good challenge!

If the writing wouldn't be enjoyable, I wouldn't be so compulsively obsessed in talking to everyone available when the game offers me to do so.

Though, I'm not too surprised if there's a lukewarm reception in the west from a game presented the way Catherine is.
