i just think II brings a lot more to the table in terms of substance and presentation. i feel like most people overlook it because it's slightly less iconic than I just because I was the series' first game and also because of II's unorthodox stat/leveling system. either way, i think II gets far too much hate despite being a very solid entry and building upon what the first game established in terms of assets/theming

Hey, saw your comment about RE HD. So the controls are good, huh? I was afraid they'd make for an awkward experience since the game was built around the tank controls, but I guess that's not the case?

It definitely is easier, even more so on subsequent throughways. Though, at that point you don't really need to upgrade your character- so it's more of a fun boss rush mode.

It seems like you picked up Demon's Souls- good luck with it. I'm trying to decide whether to go with Dark Souls II or Bloodborne next.

Congratulations on completing Dark Souls. I also played it this year and loved it.

Heh, to be honest I thought Roxas was pretty hard too, but I got his patterns down eventually, and there's always Limit Form if you're really stumped. I do wish they'd added a retry option for when you lose to a boss since getting back to the fight could be a little annoying, but whatever.

Did you play BBS yet? I'm not sure if I'll be going for the plat in that one. You'd basically have to complete the journal 3 times, which doesn't sound particularly fun.

I do indeed. Well done on both our parts, it seems! I have to say, though, I'm surprised so few have it. I didn't really think it was that hard of a plat.

Ha, yeah! Finally sat down and finished Grisly Manor in a single sitting, and that was a pretty enjoyable hour. Smooth, not too difficult, fun to see how ridiculous the trail of puzzles got. A good mansion has intricate, mysterious puzzles!

My only real complaint was the notebook that the main character automatically copies important info into. Takes away what would have been the hardest part of the game - more analytical, abstract thinking, and making connections on your own. And that seemed new, like maybe it got added in an update... I coulda sworn when I played it a little bit on iPhone a while back that it wasn't there. Ah well.

Oh, and the game looked best when it had photorealistic graphics. Like, the gumball machine is just a photo of a gumball machine. That looks nice... until you turn the dial and it rotates with that cheapo-fluid animation style. Man, if it was choppier, more FMV-like, then that'd be great.

I'm eager to play Myst, which should be crazy insanely difficult compared to Grisly Manor, ha. I love the Myst universe, but I'm ashamed to say the only one I've finished is Uru Live. Started Myst a few times over the years, but I still haven't given it a proper, full-on attempt yet.

(Whoa, had no idea Grisly Manor was on browsers. And there's no notebook!)

Yeah, it has been awhile. I guess Assassin's Creed 3 kind of put me in a state of "I don't really feel like playing video games for like 3 months..." lol.

Anyway, I'm LOVING Ni No Kuni. It's a pretty simple game, and definitely has some flaws, but still a nice change of pace. It's a bit childish, but the graphics and music are just SO DAMN GOOD.

So, I see you're close to finishing Xenogears. How do you like it so far?

Theatrhythm managed to take Vivi's level of adoreableness to a whole new level. I love seeing Final Fantasy characters prancing and jumping for joy in Theatrhythm, especially when it's someone as serious as Squall, Lightning, or Cloud XD

Mmm, I find myself getting ever so minuscule changes to the scenes after a fight. I guess I'll just have to blast through it one more time in attempts for the proper ending!

Yeah Dissidia is a lot of fun. I really wish that they would make a PS3 version with FFXIII-level graphics. Either way, I just hope that this series still has some sort of future, even if it is just on handhelds.

Let me know what you think of Heavy Rain whenever you get around to it. Everyone I know hated it, but I thought the story was pretty entertaining

But I was so close! Well, to beating it at least. And to think that I wanted to get the platinum... Ah well, maybe I'll try again some other time

Is Tales of Destiny 2 worth playing even if I wouldn't be able to understand anything? I tried Tales of Rebirth once, but kinda forgot about it. Anyway, good luck with your battle

It really isn't as difficult as I was expecting it to be. Not having access to the medic role makes it kind of hard, but the accessory that makes your potions stronger makes up for it for the most part. The first fight with Caius was a pain in the ass though, mostly because I didn't have that accessory yet, and I have no way of debuffing/wounding him. I am NOT looking forward to the one-on-one fight between him and Serah...

After this, I might try beating it again using only Serah. I wouldn't level Noel up at all, and would use him only as a sentinel until he died. No Crystarium sounds like it would be pretty interesting too. This game is pretty damn easy when playing through it normally, but it does have some amazing potential for challenge runs.

Nice, thanks for the tip. I didn't know the new ones were already out. Time to go waste money on the Ezio costume!
