Yeah, Fire Emblem: Awakening is definitely pretty awesome. I'm really enjoying it and the Support system is great. I'm only on chapter 16, but so far I'm really enjoying it.

Lunatic mode is totally ridiculous though. I can't even get past Chapter 3 with that character, even with overusing Frederick. I'm beginning to think I might have to just sacrifice some characters.

I'm only playing on hard and I'm around Chapter 9 or 10. I also like the idea of being able to add characters from past games into your group, but it's also kind of weird. I feel like I should be using the other characters instead. I'll probably start mixing it up on subsequent playthroughs though.

And yes, the support system in this one is the best so far. Especially after the abysmal one in Radiant Dawn. Small thing, but I also love that healers get ~25 EXP when they heal instead of ~10 like previous games. It was always such a pain to get them leveled up. This game is full of little improvements like that which really makes it end up standing out.

I still don't know what DOTA is, or even what it stands for. I even have it on Steam, and I'm still incapable of assigning any kind of mental image to the title "DOTA." What does it even look like? It is like WOW? Or like a FFTactics game? Is it gritty, or colorful? I honestly have no goddamn idea.

Randomly decided to go back and play the original Myst again. I have no idea why, it's so horribly outdated at this point, and yet it feels like it really was well done for its time period.

Because it was. :) I still have the original Myst, 7th Guest, and 11th Hour games that I run through DOSBox every once in a while. Haven't touched Myst lately, though... might have to revisit that surreal landscape. I also have copies of most of the early King's Quest games, come to think of it.

And... oddly enough, I've also had a rather random desire to play the old-school id FPS games, so I grabbed my (incredibly old) copies of The Ultimate Doom, Doom II, Final Doom, Quake, and Quake II and got all of them running on my (incredibly not-old) laptop. Already blew through the first three episodes of Ultimate Doom.

Ah, childhood memories.

I was playing Witcher 2, and actually loving it, despite how difficult it randomly becomes. Actually, I like that, too. It forces me out of my usual "exploit AI, use the one attack that usually works" routine and makes me actually plan ahead a bit. A hell of a lot more than most video game can make me say these days.

But then I (finally) got a 9-5 job. Now I go to work, come home, and then watch Bleach because I have a serious jones for that shit right now since I heard it finished, and I stopped watching a few years ago.

A Random Custom Title
Rep:

@arl: Well, to be technical, DOTA doesn't stand for anything. It was originally DotA on Warcraft 3 which was short for "Defense of the Ancients" referring to the fact that you - as a team - defend your "ancient" which was either a world tree or the frozen throne. Due to copyright or whatever, Valve couldn't actually use the name "DotA" so they went with "DOTA" which was obviously related, but it doesn't actually stand for "Defense of the Ancients."

It's an AoS genre which basically means there's NPC monsters spawn from both teams into three different lanes. You get EXP by being within a certain radius of a dying enemy (whether player-controlled or NPC), and you get gold for killing enemy players, helping kill enemy players, and getting the last hit on a NPC monster. You level up your skills, you buy items, you kill the enemy team, and you ultimately try to destroy their base. That's basically it.

I recently decided to play through Dragon Age again. My first time through, I played a mage, so I figured I'd go a different route and made a rogue. I'm also trying to be the good guy this time, and I'm kind of surprised how much of an effect your morality has on the ebb and flow of things.

I'm debating on moving on to Dragon Age 2 as soon as I finish Origins, or playing through the DLC - Awakening included.

I'm surprised at how much fun the game actually is. The sticker management can be a bit of a pain, but it was still a fun game to play.

Paper Mario Sticker Star is kind of fun, and the dialogue is great, but it got boring for me pretty fast when I realized there is no incentive to do battles, other than getting coins, but you get plenty of coins outside of battle anyway which renders it pointless. Apparently the developers had a lot of restrictions placed on them, which is unfortunate because it could have been a lot better than it is.

Yeah, there is little reason to fight soon after the start of the game. Also you don't really need a lot of coins since you can find a lot of free stickers in towns and in stages. I also noticed that the game doesn't explain a lot about bosses, but expects you to guess and carry around the huge thing stickers to defeat them.

Lately I completed Deus Ex: Human Revolution on a pacifist run; went the whole game without killing anyone. Bosses excluded of course.

Once you're used to how the AI / Mechanics work, the game is shockingly easy. After the pacifist run, I then completed it on the hardest difficulty. Easily the best game of 2011.  :yuyu:

Are these battles totally optional? Because if so, I actually find that kind of cool.

Unless the battles are the core of the gameplay, in which case it's the exact opposite.

That does seem to be the general consensus. I'll admit that I've never actually played the second game, partially due to some of the criticism.

That said, a friend of mine has vouched for it, saying that while it's not as good as Origins or Awakening, it's a solid game in its own right. I've also heard that the third game is supposed to read your saves from the first two, and I'm a sucker for that kind of thing. It really makes the series feel more connected.


That gave me a much appreciated laugh. Thanks for that. :D
