So because I actually legit enjoyed talking about video games in the random thoughts thread before MAXIMUM SPIDER:

General video game discussion thread aka "what we have been playing that isn't league of legends". Discuss why Halo could beat up that Metroid guy here.

Gosh darn do I love Disaster: Day of Crisis. What a brilliantly dumb game.

Was it "good for someone who doesn't play a lot of fighting games" good because from fighting game fans I have heard it is very very dumb and unbalanced.(and should not have been at Evo).

I consider myself kind've a fighting game fan and I liked it. One of the unique things about that I really liked is that there's an interactive background environment that characters can actions have which changes depending on the type of character you chose. For instance, where as a "light" character would jump off a statue to the other side of their opponent, a "heavy" character would pick up and throw the statue. So I guess the balance is a bit wonky, but I don't think it's that big of a negative.

Joker can still kill Ares.

I really, really need to stop buying games. I've just bought Phoenix Wight: Dual Destinies, which means I now have that, Pokemon X, Pokemon Black 2, 999, Virtue's Last Reward, Fire Emblem: Awakening and the Metroid Prime Trilogy still to finish. Trying to decide which of those to focus on whilst remaining unspoiled by the interwebs is a less than easy task.

I'm, uh... I'm a slow gamer.

omg I love Parasite Eve so much I could talk about that shit all day. At least the first one. The sequels are kinda "eh", to be honest.

Anyway I've finally started working on the Mass Effect games considering I bought the trilogy set like months ago but just never got around to playing them. I've been switching back and forth between that and Rogue Legacy, and I've also been tackling Flower, Sun, and Rain when I take my DS anywhere. I like Suda51, but damn, FSR just isn't a fun game.

It was difficult to nail down exactly when the anger started. Remembering a time when it wasn't there, coiled up and waiting to strike or alive and thrashing, was growing more and more challenging. It'd been with her for so long that it no longer felt like an intruder in her mind. It felt like a part of her.

I'm the biggest fighting game snob. It drives the WAW folks crazy that I diss the fuck out of Mortal Kombat for being an unbalanced piece of shit that focuses too much on shock and gore and not enough on gameplay and semi-decent character design.

If you are a Mortal Kombat fan...

I APOLOGIZE FOR NOTHING.

Uh, so other than my good fighters (Guilty Gear, super occasionally MvC3) and my experimental 'these are okay but not my mainstays' (Blazblue, Skullgirls) that I'm playing at the moment, I'm also dabbling around with Bastion here and there.
