Well, I'm around. I still visit this site, but don't always log in. I have been busy feeding my comic book addiction, and have slacked a bit on my goal. I've also been going through the garage attempting to clear out junk, which has been amazing. I've found a lot of gems, like a box of old DOS and Amiga games, as well as GBC, GG, and a couple PS1 games. It was like finding the X on the treasure map.
50 Games Beaten Progress
Infamous (PS3) - I REALLY enjoyed that game. I will have to play the sequel at some point.
King of Fighters '99 (PS) - I got it, and hardly played it, so I finally did. Good stuff, that.
Epic Mickey (WII) - which I absolutely hated. I have ranted so much to my friends, I don't think I can go on here. It's one of the most ugly and boring and unorganized disney games I've ever played. I WILL sit down and go through the Magical Quest (which this game made me want to play).
House of Mice (IP) - This was a fun little puzzle game with great cartoon graphics. It was infuriating at times, trying to deal with precision, but an update fixed my headaches.
1112 Episode 2 (IP) - I LOVE adventure games, especially the old point-and-click kind, and I have been enjoying this series. I MUST know what happens next, so I forsee picking up Episode 3 in the future.
Trip World (GBC) - A cute game that reminds me of something like Kirby, mostly from the visuals and being able to collect things and mutate into other things. It was really short, though, only 5 stages.
I have 23 games to beat before next year. Not positive I can do it, unless I focus on shorter games. I may have to work at more of my iOS games and see what other older gen games I haven't beat (like The Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse). I've been in an RPG mood lately, which most certainly won't help me progress much quicker.
As for new purchases, I picked up quite a few games since then and now, a lot of iOS games to add to my already massive collection, but I did get some stuff off PSN:
Wizardy (and all DLC). I LOVED (and hated) this series back-in-the-day. Graphing dungeons was fun, and aggravating, but it's what got me into RPG games (including the table-top variety).
Might & Magic Heroes, because it looked like a fun puzzler, and thankfully, it is.
Front Mission 3 (PSN), because I need to play more of this series.
Aedis Eclipse: Generation of Chaos (PSP), because it looked interesting.
Mana Khemia Student Academy (PSP), because I need a fix of vibrant JRPG strangeness.
Rengoku 2 (PSP), because I happen to have liked the first one.
Naughty Bear (PS3) which I had to have and I love to play. I purchased the pirate level DLC, got the free superhero one, I just need to get the vampire level and I have it all.
Just Cause 2 (PS3) which I had been meaning to get for ages.
Mafia 2 (PS3) I always wanted to play
Oblivion 5th Anniversary Edition (PS3) - I can't play my PC version, because my laptop is still dead, and $40 was a good price.
Fallout New Vegas (PS3) It's Fallout and I need it, though I can't seem to get into it.
Alice Return to Madness (PS3) - This needs no explaining for those that know me.
What I play seems to change rapidly, as my iPod Touch and iPad tend to garner more attention these past weeks than anything else, however, there are certain games I keep going back to. My Backloggery is pretty accurate in terms of where I am with things. I enjoy using that site. I did NOT enjoy adding some 400+ iOS games to it yesterday.
Anvil of Dawn (Dos) - I found this in that box, and I took a break from Wizardry to get it running on my MacBook. It's your standard first-person, block-stepping, dungeon crawl of yore that is loose on plot, and heavy on dungeon crawling. It is of the age of automapping, so no need for graph paper. There are 17 dungeons in the game and I just completed the 8th a few days ago. The dungeons are huge, there are annoying pressure-plate puzzles that require you to carry sacks full of rocks, but it's been really fun. I will likely play Dark Sun Wake of the Ravager after this. It's another game I never got far in.
Batman Arkham Asylum (360) - I played this religiously for a long time, then something happened. I dunno what, but I haven't had the urge to play it. I'm at Killer Croc's place, so I'd like to think I'm a good chunk in. I need to sit down and finish it, so I can return it to my friend that's letting me borrow it.
American McGee's Alice (PS3) - So happy the game came with the free download. This game is really neat. I'm pretty sure I never finished it back-in-the-day. THe jumping mechanics drive me insane, so I play it in small chunks here-and-there.
Untold Legends Brotherhood of the Blade (PSP) - I've been playing this to counter the slow carefulness I must employ in Anvil of Dawn. It's nice to just run around hacking things to bits and collecting loot. I also never finished this game, before trading it back in. It was $10 off PSN when I reaquired it many, many months ago.
White Knight Chronicles (PS3) - I returned to this game and marathoned through the plot and I'm just about at the end in the Dogma Rift going through the teleport maze. I haven't touched it in awhile. The game has been overall 'meh', but pretty to look at. I get tired of the combat.
Hybrid Eternal Whisper (IP) - This has been a fun action beat-em-up kind of RPG and I'm nearing the end of that one, as well. At least from the look of the map screen.
Kid Dracula (GBC) - This game can be really hard. Jeeze. Nintendo was evil back then. It's no wonder we broke things. I started playing it last night and got as far as the cloud world. I've gotten pretty far this morning. I got past the stage with the boss that reminds me of a My Little Pony, and go through the next stage where you use a lot of bombs and died at the boss. I would last until the ladder came down, then I'd just get pelted by those bricks. Ugh.
