I can't wait for the full version to be released.

I started Phantom Hourglass over the holidays, completed Phoenix Wright: Justice for All, started Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations and went back to playing FFXII: Revenant Wings. I've been playing Fate/Stay Night's visual novel on the side (Unlimited Blade Works route). VN >>>>>>>>> anime.

I was told I could play Uncharted 2 before 1 without missing much. But will I want to go back and play the first one?

Did Mirror Moon translate the Unlimited Blade Works route yet? Or are you playing it in Japanese? Either way, I think it's about time I got the visual novel, seeings as how I loved the anime.

Yeah, you won't miss much really. Althought the story itself is highly recommended to experience. Gameplay-wise though, I dunno if you'll like the first one's after playing the second's. So I guess play the first one first?

Got GPSP (a GBA emulator) running on my PSP, so I've been playing BulletGBA and Vulkanon. (two great homebrew shmups) Great bullet-hell on the go. BulletGBA even has dozens of simulations from actual bullet-hell games, like Cave and Raizing stuff, so you can practice dodging them and get better at bullet-hell in general.

From a story standpoint, it doesn't really make a difference which one you play first. Speaking from a strictly gameplay perspective, however, definitely play the first game first, if you can, because the second game is such a huge improvement over the first game it's almost ridiculous. The first game is still fun, but you'll find yourself missing a lot of the tweaks and improvements from the second game if you play it after you've played the second game.

MAG feels like a huge letdown. Perhaps that's just my take on it because I haven't heard any post open beta opinions but it just doesn't "feel" nearly as good as the hype has been. After playing the Bad Company 2 beta, MAG just doesn't compare. Granted these are just two beta games but based on the fact that MAG is set to release on the 26th of this month and BC2 in March, EA has more than enough time to fix and adjust the few faults with the game.

While I'm on it, I played Assassin's Creed II over the past weekend and I just wasn't all that excited by it. There were definitely many improvements but I felt that what few downfalls there were ruined the game, for me anyway, such as very inconsistent graphics (Amazing during some sequences and utterly half-assed during others) and poor character development (Ezio was a terrible clash of too many personality types).

They've translated all three routes.

Hopefully someone gets around to doing Fate/Hollow Ataraxia one of these days.

In Hollywood an Uncharted movie is in the works. Although the first game has a treasure-is-cursed plot twist typical of many adventure movies (think Indiana Jones), I hope that the script is based on the first game. The interaction between Drake and his pals are great, and the story immerses you in Drake's history very well (I'm a history fanatic in general which is what first caught my eye about the game).

I finished the first one earlier this morning, I'm now playing the second one. So far, the presentation of the story-to-gameplay is superior, but I haven't played enough to see if I like the overall story moreso.

I felt that the actual stories were pretty weak, honestly. It was the writing and presentation that gave them the illusion of being good stories. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, mind you, because the writing and presentation are superb.

The biggest issue regarding the storytelling in the Uncharted games, however, is trying to reconcile the Nathan Drake we see in cutscenes with the Nathan Drake we control during gameplay, and I don't think Naughty Dog has quite succeeded in that area just yet.

You mean how he seems like a sympathetic treasure hunter in sequences and in terms of story, but in gameplay he can actually be an efficient, ruthless, and almost assassin-like of a killer?

Crusader: Have you played Assassin's Creed II yet? I'm sure you have but I haven't been keeping up with everyone's currently played list. I, too, am a history buff and really enjoyed some of the information, scenes, and quips that were historically accurate, even the bits that weren't accurate but still payed homage to the era.

Haven't played ass-ass yet, since my time-budget is so tight these days.

And hey, Nathan only kills the bad guys.
