Eternal Sonata, until XIII-2 comes out, then I'll be spending all my time on that. :'D

You're right. I'll be sure to sharpen my claws on you at the next available opportunity!

But seriously dude, don't take it personally. I'm not saying it's a bad game. Just not the kind of thing I like. How things when down for me:

1. Have to start in first person. Ugh. This triggers my vertigo.
2. Follow this guy. Wait? Wasn't he one of the guys about to kill me? Why is he helping me now? Who the hell is he again?
3. I get to make my character. Yay! Oh. No dwarves. :/ Make the prettiest Orc that I can.
4. I can go to 3rd person now. Yay! Wait. Why am I always backing up or walking like a crab? Why is it so hard to turn the camera so that I can admire my pretty Orc face?
5. Get some loot. Fight some guys. X-X-X-X-X-X Am I even hitting this guy? X-X-X-X-X-X Is this the guy I'm supposed to be hitting? Is this the guy who was about to kill me or the guy who's trying to kill me now? Wait, what? I better use my shield. Damn, I'm slow now!
6. Guy who was going to kill me but is now helping me: "See if there's anything in this locked cell." Me: "Sure!" *picks lock, no loot* :/
7. Wander around Skyrim. That part's pretty cool. Lots of cute animals. I chase them around but don't kill any of them because I'm a vegan Orc. Tested how far down I could jump without dieing. Died.
8. Got to town. Smacked snotty kid with my mace, aggro'd everyone. Reloaded.
9. Asked questions, listened, got bored, went swimming, caught some fish. Maybe I'm a pescatarian Orc?
10. I'm supposed to go talk to someone and tell them about the dragon and ask for help. I don't want to. Turned on PS3. Beat Dark Souls with level 5 character then killed griefers with my Sunbros.

D/led the demo for Resident Evil Revelations and man, the game looks good in action. Controls are a tad sluggish, but nothing damning. Will pick up when it's not $50, because that's an insane amount of money for a portable game.

Also got around to playing the J-demo for "Yakuza: The End", which was super moon-ruin heavy, so that didn't go well for me.

I have no idea how you guys are having that much trouble. Use power attacks predominately, use weaker normal attacks to let your stamina recharge, use shield or spells to defend.

Or use Archery and never have to deal with any of that mess.

Nope. I meant, it's too easy. There's no dodging, blocking, rolling or anything like that involved. The enemies are too weak, even the dragons (arrowarrowarrowdead) I'm not saying the game's OMGSOBAD, it's okay just not my thing.

EDIT: Back on topic. Friend bought Disgaea 4, gonna see if it's worth to buy :3

I don't hate it. I just find it sort of, er, not very interesting. Aside from not liking the combat much, it's also clear that I'm going to have to get involved in everyone's politics when all I really want to do is fight dragons.

Uh, the vegan part was a joke. But I'm still not going to kill animals that don't attack me. I am an Orc though. I would have been a dwarf - but Skyrim says no. Despite the fact that you can pick up loot that is Dwarven This or That, you can't actually be a dwarf. People are so racist against dwarfs. ):<

This. Despite it often not being clear to me that I've actually hit the guy, they die after two swings. I just gave the game another chance. Went through a dungeon, got to the "boss", turned on my Berzerker power, hit him once and he was dead. :/ How is that fun? I'm moving on to Mass Effect.

I found it boring after killing people in two hits and dragons with... arrows.

Also, Sunbro-fist!

I, on the other hand, am enjoying Skyrim.

I also downloaded the RE:Revelations demo. It's charmingly old school.

I've been playing nothing but Skyrim lately. I know it's the other way around, but to ME it's Fantasy!Fallout and that's why I enjoy it.

I miss Uncharted 3 though, there's no reason I shouldn't've beaten that game already. Maybe tomorrow!

I pretty much see Fallout and Elder Scrolls going hand-in-hand but one's a sci-fi version and one's a fantasy version. I love these games!

And I keep replaying the Revelations demo. I'm looking forward to this game!

Honestly, I think that I should avoid playing any game that involves wielding a sword for a while as I will just end up comparing it unfavorably to Dark Souls. :/ I'm better off shooting stuff in Mass Effect. Re-started it last night. Man. There's a lot of talking! Still trying to figure out the different guns, grenades, omni-tool, biotic, whatever. Or, at least, I would be except that people WILL NOT STFU! I keep talking to people hoping that they will tell me to go shoot someone but they all just want me to go talk to someone else. But, I'm enjoying the characters and the environment so far and it seems like the battle mechanics will be interesting.

UGH. You and PD should start a club.

IF YOU PLAYED THE GAME you'd find out why that is. It's actually part of the history of the Elder Scrolls universe.

I can understand your frustration about wanting to fight dragons though. I haven't found any for days and it's getting annoying.
