Well, just follow what the...things say. In battle, you have to "flick" the controller upwords, so you can suck up souls. This game is the reason I actually bough myself a playstation 3...

I had that just right, it's just that the overall feel was weird. Five minutes into the game and a somewhat skeptical guy was already in the Netherworld. It felt pretty linear for an... RPG? I'm not even sure what it is. Since I didn't finish the demo I'll give it another go once I'm freed from university.

Is the story any good? I mean, as far as I could tell it was ANOTHER alien invasion game. If anything, I would get it for better gameplay, not really caring about what happens. If the story actually has something going for it, then that's a different thing altogether <.<

@ resistance
its pretty nice, yes, mostly due to a fairly large amount of GAR involved, and gameplaywise, its actually goddamn varied.

I tried Bayonetta's demo in my new (yes, I bought both) 360 and it was better than expected. The first videos I watched felt really... dumb, or so to say. The actual gameplay however is a lot of fun. I don't know how long the fun may last, but as of now it's a future purchase.


Also I watched a video from Just Cause 2. I want this one too D:

Madness!! Take your filthy "fun" away from my videogames!

Another edit: I forgot, I'm playing Metal Gear Solid 4. I have no idea what is going on since I have never played one but I'm liking it a lot. But I'm on Act 3 now... tailing NPCs around the damn city is NOT fun. I'm also trying to get some wallpapers into my PS3, but it doesn't recognize the images D: I want my Akiha wallpaper dammit! I'll just have to google it.

"Noooooo! Get up Mr. Bubbles!! Get up!!"

So, I rented Bioshock. Very late, I know. But it's an awesome game, and freaking long too. No FPS lasts more than 2 days for me, and I've been at it for 3 days in a row! I still can't finish.

Next rent: The Darkness.

Edit: I just finished Bioshock, and man was it awesome. It's as good as I heard it was... sadly, since it was rented I rushed my ass to finish it in time. If there is anyone that has not played it yet and wants to, I advise you to buy it. You will get a much better experience that way, or rent it for AT LEAST 10 days.

Also, the epic tale of the Console Wars(not mine):

Dragon Age is so good. I beat it twice and have 4 other running characters. I just couldn't decide how I wanted to do things, but it is awesome. I would have loved it so much more if it had more D&D elements - such as the diverse classes and races.

I'm playing Demon Souls. I'm liking it so far, but it has a couple of minor flaws like being zero newbie friendly. Sadly, it has no 1080p support for the few times that I get a chance to play on a 44" HDTV. The online mode is creative indeed...

And I can't wait to get my hands on Alien vs Predator, I loved the PC ones. It will be the next multiplayer game to drain away my vacations.

Re-playing Mass Effect yet again, this time using a lesbian with a knack for putting a bullet between people's eyes and an ability to have a blue glow around her when casting space wizards.
Just a note: If you ever get the chance to read the first Mass Effect book, don't waste your cash on it.

I'm waiting for Resonant of Fate.

Promotion video: Battle system: Oh yeah you can grab the Japanese demo of PSN Japan, I think it's also on the 360 Japanese market place.

I just got Mass Effect off of Steam for $5 the other day, definitely seems like it was worth the full price when it came out but I just never got around to getting it til now >.>

Now if only I could still remember how my uncle beat it about a decade ago...

It totally is. Call me a fanboy if you want (I probably am so it isn't too much of a stretch, anyway) but I think it's one of the best games that has come in the last years. The story is intriguing and it has potential to be so much more, something that a lot of stories fail at. A lot of 'em get to the point of climax and then begin to be intriguing, making it hard for it to still have the potential of becoming something else, something bigger. In other words, the speculation from the part of the spectator (or player, or reader or whatever) in an attempt to foresee what might come and why is pretty much lost and what's left is merely the rush towards the final events of the story.

Well, currently wasting my time with:
Left 4 Dead 2
I LOVE zombies. Mainly when you can chainsaw your way through hordes of those bastards kicking, punching and screaming at you. Now I have this big, fat-ass man-crush on Coach and want a retarded cousin like Ellis in my family.

I started it yesterday and have some issues with it, but it still is too early to have an elaborated opinion about it.

^I Falcon Pawnched a reporter in the face in Mass Effect. That alone, makes it awesome.


I'm on a New Game+ in Demon's Souls as of now, and I'm half through it again. To put it simple, Demon's Souls is kind of like a fusion between a MMORPG and Zelda:OoT. It's a very good game while it lasts but it will only last long if you are either a completionist or want to fully experience PvP (both of them, which I'm not really interested). I've had my share of PvP in the game and it's fun, but it's not really a reason to play it all that much. I'll check out the magic and probably be done with it.

Also, I heard it was a hard game all over the place. It's not. Sure you die a couple of times, but that's to be expected. It's an easy game, you only need a bit of brains. Recommended game anyway. It's fun.

With Sakura Wars 5 released in a couple of months (the first game of the series ever released in English), I'm thinking of playing through Sakura Taisen 1-4 first. It has been one of my most favorite anime series so I has always want to play the game. (Plus it's probably one of the best hyprid between RPG and VN out there).

So does anyone here play these game before and how much Japanese is needed for it? I'm sitting somewhere near the beginning tip of intermediate level, I think have a good grasp of grammar, comfortable with Kana and know about 500 kanji. I'm not expecting a smooth sailing but is the game very demanding in term of Japanese?

Well I just beat Assassin's Creed 2, which was far superior to the first one imho. I also bought BlazBlue which is a really good fighting game. I wholeheartedly recommend both

Game called Saira. Demo is free, full-game is 12$ on sale [for only 2 more days!]...
Very fun artistic but currently short game. By Niffalis, same person who did that freeware game Within a Deep Forest, and Kyntt and Kyntt Stories. Highly recommended for a free fun time (plus this Saira game pays a few nods to the other games :D).
http://nifflas.ni2.se/index.php?page=1001Saira

I didn't know what to expect but loved the demo enough to not be stingy [not often]. So highly recommended. Especially if you like to support indie developers! [it includes indie music too!]

Only criticism is the game is much shorter than I hoped... There is currently only one episode. But, users can create new content I hear. So eventually one way or another the story should continue...
