Your memory does not serve. The Demon's Souls server is still online. I can see new messages appearing and a fair number of ghosts, but no one was looking to co-op.

I'm starting to understand the appeal and by extension the mass of this fandom; with how poor the character art is compared to how enjoyable the music and gameplay are (however fucking maddeningly hard it is), there's this self-important, sympathetic knee jerk that assures you, 'I could improve this'. You want to help ZUN in this patronizing, narcissistic way, you want to give him your art and your time because you know you could do better and he would appreciate it. He needs you. He must.


Which explains to me the gargantuan amount of fanart and pv's made for the series. I mean, I honestly think I like the fandom and the creative license it takes with the series more than I actually like the series, which is backwards and I don't totally understand it.

I've been saying things to this effect for years.

It still saddens me, since it's... a shmup series. For a series of bullet-hell games, the gameplay is decent, but the fans-- some of which don't even praise the games-- make it seem like it's all about everything but the gameplay. The characters, the soundtracks, how "pretty" the bullet patterns are vs. how challenging they are to dodge (a good half of them literally dodge themselves), etc... All this shit is just the icing on a fundamentally good cake when it comes to actual shmup developers. Characters/music/flashiness =/= shoot-em-up fundamentals.

Bitching aside, I enjoyed everything from Embodiment of Scarlet Devil to Shoot the Bullet. The 10th game and onward just lost me, because it seemed like all the elements-- both fundamental and superficial-- went downhill.

Rune Factory Frontier ! I think I have finally decided who I want to marry in-game. It's been a tie between Rosetta, Iris, Bianca, and... well, quite a few others for a while now.

I wonder if the new Rune Factory for wii is any good ? I hope they release some new Harvest Moon titles as well. I sadly do not have a DS, 3DS, or any of those fancy devices...

Code of Princess level grinding, Virtue's Last Reward, and Crosswords Plus (I have a soft spot for puzzle games and Crashmo isn't out yet, and I love Picross but Picross E isn't out yet either so I'm playing this instead). I need to get Liberation Maiden off the eShop soon.

Re-playing a little bit of Persona 3 Portable. Might play old and obscure Capcom isometric shooter for the arcades and Dreamcast called Cannon Spike.

Being stuck in the house for a ton days means one will play a ton of games. Here's what I did.

Borderlands 2-A fun game, but I'm a bit burnt-out on it, seeing how I put an easy 30-40 hours into it and haven't beaten it yet. Taking a break from it for a week or 2.

Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles-Found it for cheap, and I like on-rail shooters. Also gave me an excuse to dust off the Wii. It's fun, and playing it w/ a bro helps, but man o man, there are some rough spots in the RE canon. Basically any RE between 2 and 4.

Kickpuncher- There's a beta out for the kickstarter backers and it's dope. It's very much a beat em up, but also insane. Hard to describe, aside from the fact that there's a playable bee-keeper in it, as well as a character named "Steroid Jackson". Potential GOTY

Resident Evil 6-Cost me zero dollars. Mercenary mode owns. The Chris campaign, however, blows goat. At least the Leon/Jake campaigns should be better.

Also watching several friend live-tweet their AC3 campaigns, and man, I'm suprised how mediocre this game seems to be, despite all the hype and intial media praise.
