i am getting PC verison as well. Never played SFIV yet.

The Focus Attack from what i heard is to add more stragety into the game. I play fighting games on playstation controllers all the time. If you prefer the joystick, then there are pc sticks. If you have PS2 controller, there are cheap 10-15 dollar converters that you can use to plug it into your pc for SFIV

Playing Sonic and the Black Night (Wii). It's really strange to see King Arthur with 2.5 meters high...

I've just started the Phoenix Wright series and it is as good as I've heard. I like the game's system for finding contradictions in witness' testimonies. Out of all the visual novels I've played, this one has the best gameplay.

Going through Fable II... it's boring as hell. I liked Fable I (ignoring the annoying voices), so it's kinda sad that I don't like this one.

Edit: On NG2, on Master Ninja Mode I am now at the first test of valor; also known as Hell. I stopped for about .2 seconds. Dead.

I don't think it's that boring, but it lacks something that the original had. Most things are better than in the original, but the story, believe it or not, is much worse than in Fable 1. After finishing it I was far from thinking "Oh wow! Now it's time to milk this game dry!!" It's.... a good game, but there are better ones out there. If someone really wants it, it's better if it's bought after a price-drop.

Anyway, I'm not currently playing anything (sadly), but I read one very... peculiar... article and, this being an eroge related forum, thought this might be a fun thing to read ;)

Man, I've been checking out Muramasa: The Demon Blade and it looks sweet. I don't really know when the english (only subtitles!) version will come out though, and I'm piss poor anyway. But seriously, I want to get my hands on it. It just looks so pretty D:

Edit: Woot! My 360 got the RRoD. Fucking great. For some reason, I am laughing my ass off.

Now I need to check how to get it running again... guess I'll ask a friend later.

Edit again: WTF?! It's working again (my 360). This is weird, but I fear that once I see the RRoD they will eventually come back again, and that time they will want to stay.

Edit once more: It's official. My 360 is dead. The warranty won't work. $160 for repairs... yeah right. I'll check around if someone does it for less, if not I'll take it into me and the mighty internet guides.

If I had a Wii I'd definitely get that game. Looks pretty and also looks super fun.

In the G4 clip he says it'll be out in the first week of September, and that it completely sold out in Japan, if that's any testament to the quality.

Princess Waltz.

The starting is kinda funny , but later it gets more serious.
A decent game,but the Card Battle System is so easy that even a toddler can handle it.
Life is but a River.
A continuous flow,relentless till it reaches its destination.
Rocks,rapids,falls hinder not the flow of the strong.
It has its ups,and its downs.
And in the end,peacefully.......
It dissipates into to vast Ocean.

its because its meant for us to totally win it one handed, think about it, would it be half as easy if you didnt know your opponent's dominant color?

Maybe not, but still it would not be that difficult.
I mean, I thought Duel Masters and Yu-Gi-Oh! were easy.
This is on a different level.

I'm playing Resident Evil 4. When I have time off from defeating hordes of evil infested villagers and cultists, and saving some girl's ass (white pantsu btw) I like to stroll around town looking for Torx screwdrivers and thermic compound as I continue my search, my Epic Quest to fix my 360 myself. According to the legend, if I am to replace the thermic compound, the gods shall grant the dead another life. Another opportunity. And so, my search continues and I hope that today I will have it all.

Edit: My mistake, they were white.

I never believed the elders' words and thought that this legend was no more than tall tales of yore. If you are to accomplish such feat, do tell how.

I understand your position my brother. Nevertheless, I'm at the point of no return. No options left. Nothing to lose. Ye old teachings may be true or may not. Tomorrow I hope to embark on a journey. My mission: Arctic Silver 5 thermic compound and a T8 screwdriver. I don't yet know if this is the last piece of my quest, but I can only hope so. I shall bring you more news, be them joyful or sorrowful. Peace, my brother.

In other news: I just saw a Brutal Legend trailer. I am sad. Why? WHY? I thought Guitar Hero and Rock Band (not sure about this one) were already enough to take a crap on metal. But no, some bastard decides to continue the sodomy, perhaps on a bigger scale. I don't even know what's worst, those 2 or the crap of a trailer I saw. It's like (yet) a(nother) shitty CG movie from the U.S. portraying stupid stereotypes. And of course every single comment I've seen about it is "OMG IS GONNA BE AWESUM!". I hope that the one that came up with it dies a slow and painful death. Or becomes a vegetable. His/Her/Its evil deeds must be stopped.

i disagree... a.k.a. STFU, it indeed is going to be awesome (you still worrying about stereotypes?? where youve been for the last decade?)

4th run of Valkyria Chronicles, cant seem to get tired of it... also cooperative storyline of Resistance 2
