Finished Umineko no Naku Koro ni Chiru Episode 6 yesterday. Well, I finished the main game ages ago but I read Tea Party and Ura Tea Party yesterday.

Going to start playing Project Diva 2 today, the first game was great even though I don't really like Miku nor her "voice."

I'm also playing Kanon and SHUFFLE!, but those have taken the backseat lately.

Resident Evil 5

The game is actually massively better when you have infinite ammo for your strongest weapons. It's fun to blow through, not so much fun to play cautiously.

Mother

Never really got into it before, but I'm loving it this time. Probably going to grab an repro cart so I can play it (again) on my NES.

But before that I really want to do a full playthrough of Dragon Warrior. I never finished it before, but if I can get through Mother I think I can finish DW.

I've got a couple of 360 games that are untouched too but I'm sure they can't compare to slow paced grindfest eight bit RPGs

I am only up to Episode 3 in Umineko no Naku Koro ni :-[ Another thing I wish I checked out sooner..

Also playing Saya no Uta and Nier (on 360).

I've been picking up discount 360 games lately.  Several things that I passed up but decided were worth it in the sub $30 range.

-Blur
-Split/Second
-Darksiders
-Dirt 2

Been playing the Lego games with my kids too.

just picked up BlazeBlue CS. it's sort of a nice change from SSFIV. I don't have to tediously link something in a matter of 1 or 2 frames anymore, not that i could accurately do that to begin with. some of the combo challenges are almost a minute long!

also been playing Pump It Up NXA and Rival Schools :cool:

About half way through Dead Space - Very good so far, the levels are a bit similar but that's the only gripe. Also, Transformers Cybertron Adventures on the Wii - one of the worst reviewed games, but I like it. Sedate pacing with the focus on accuracy. Looks like Tron.

Eternal Sonata, and yesterday I found a cheap copy of Tales of Vesperia. So, looks like I'll be busy for some time!

I just finished Resonance of Fate (excellent game by the way), now I'm wondering if I should go back to FFXIII or try something new (I've got Nier, Star Ocean 4 and Eternal Sonata)

Deadly Premonition. Easily dismissed as a budget title, but give it a couple of hours and it's got a great plot, great characters, loads of interesting gameplay elements, plenty of longevity, yadda yadda I could rant for a while. Jim Sterling's review at Destructoid, as well as being funny, is pretty accurate.

If you are open to the darkly comic / ridiculous, are not an complete A/V snob, and like good games, I cannot recommend it enough.

I'm not usually a fan of these 3rd person hack n slash em ups with 10000 different button press combos (I usually end up just furiously mashing them) - but this does seem a strange world, and story - as well as being a solid game with some epic ass boss battles.

Thumbs up from me  :righton:

Edge 10/10? Nah, maybe an 8 or something, but it is fun for the money I paid (got the climax edition cheap, although I can't bring myself to care about a game soundtrack CD ever, let alone some art book).

Started 素晴らしき日々~不連続存在~ / subarashiki hibi ~furenzoku sonzai~. My vocab/kanji isn't that impressive but I'm managing ok so far, AGTH is a lifesaver since you can easily lookup unknown kanji and put them down for future. Fun and educational. :righton:

Decided to finally pick up the first Professor Layton game on DS, got a bit of catching up to do with that series, but the game seems great so far.
