I played a bit of Katamari Forever last night and remembered why that game is kind of a downer to play. Maybe I really suck at it, but I swear I barely ever get a good score. I am constantly finishing and being told it wasn't good enough. I get like, 28 or 31 points. Is this average (as the game isn't really about YAY YOU!), or am I just really bad? T_T I think maybe once I actually got praised. DOESN'T FEEL GOOD.

I think the boyfriend and I are gonna try to play more Gears 1 again soon, or else we have little chance of beating it before Gears 3 comes out next week. I'm having an alright time with Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, though until I actually get my assassin ranger squad it feels too much like I'm replaying AC2.

Traded in all of our old games that we weren't playing and preordered Gears of war 3 and Rage today. Until it comes out I'll be playing Dead Island, I'm only like 18% done with the story line. So far the game definitely reminds me of borderlands <3 I'm loving it.

I've only played Katamari Damacy, but remember thinking that the King of All Cosmos was a TOTAL DICK! Thanks for tearing down my self-esteem when I'm just trying to clean up the mess that YOU made. Asshole. XD I'm also not very good at it but it was one of those games that I was really stubborn about (I'll show you, you stupid King of All Cosmos!) so I ended up completing almost everything. I've pretty much accepted that I'm never going to get 100% of the crabs or geese though. ): I recently picked up We <3 Katamari but haven't played it yet.

If you're playing katamari, you should be playing Katamari Tribute. Easily the best soundtrack out of all 5 games.

Isn't Katamari Forever and Katamari Tribute the same game?

To me Katamari should of never had sequels, and stayed as an obscure PS2 game with great humor and an amazing soundtrack.

I played the crap out of the first game.

Nothing currently, as I've been busy. Soon though, I may have some time for portable gaming, so I will be toting my DS and Wonderswan Color.

I am also taking WonderSwan/WonderSwan Color recommendations.

I've been playing Fitocracy. It needs to come a long way before I can treat it the same way I treat other games, but the idea of the system is really intriguing. If I could treat my workout like an RPG and level myself up, I think my competitive spirit would force me to do more.

But right now, it's little more than a vague spreadsheet, so it doesn't do me a lot of good.

Beat Dead Island. Probably going to play through Deus Ex: HR again. The girl wants me to play Reach with her too.

Boyfriend and I went back to Gears 1. Looks like we were just rusty, because hardcore hasn't given us any major issues anymore. I'm glad, because we were seriously getting discouraged before. We finished act 1 last night, and killed the Berserker on our first try. Yay! I'm officially further than when I played a bit on my own in 2009.

I don't know if we can beat it before Gears 3 comes out, but I guess we can still try!

Oh, and I finally completed all the endings in Fallout: New Vegas! Now all that's left is a bunch of random achievements like weapon modding and getting kicked out of casinos, and beating it in hardcore mode.

...and I guess I will get back to Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, too. That big climbing around sequence with Desmond just made me feel like I should be playing Uncharted instead.

Wow I went right in with my last reply, and didn't even see that people had replied to my Katamari post!

I feel like I don't remember it being THAT BAD in the original game, but maybe I'm just remembering it more fondly because it was my ~*~first time~*~ and all that. Basically I feel like I am constantly being told it wasn't good enough EVEN WHEN I MET THE GOALS wtf.

We Katamari was a good one, for sure. After that, ehh!

Yes. It's Katamari Forever in America, Katamari Damacy Tribute in Japan. It's the one I'm playing on PS3.

The second one was still good, since it was still the same guy from the first one. I also like Katamari Forever, since it's more or less a collection of levels from the earlier games. (And I don't have my PS2 right now, so it's all I can do! I traded in the PSP Katamari and couldn't get into the 360 one.)

Welp, I just finished Dues Ex: HR

That is not how you end a game. Not at all. Poor form, especially when the rest of the game was so good!

I'm currently playing Persona4 and Fallout New Vegas. I have to switch constantly between the two because P4 becomes depressing after being played for soo long and i just fool around half of my time playing Fallout.
