I haven't spent enough time with Sticker Star to offer any conclusive thoughts, but my first impressions were negative. I've hit the acceptance stage that we're not getting a proper Paper Mario RPG for the foreseeable future (and Trinen referring to Paper Mario as an "action adventure" series reaffirms that, I think), but I can't get excited for this one. From what I've seen of Sticker Star, I do believe the foundation is there for something good, but... I don't know.

Basically, I'm skeptical, but I'm kind of hopeful that Color Splash will be solid in its own right. I agree that it looks nice, so there's that, at least. For now we'll just have to continue hoping for a true Paper Mario 3.

I'm glad you're enjoying Fates. One of my friends loves it!

My gaming is going! I'm still progressing through things slowly... I picked up Awakening again too! My friend plans to go through all three versions of Fates, and I promised him that I'll beat Awakening before he beats Revelation. I also purchased my 1,000th game, so that's vaguely exciting.

So... Paper Mario: Color Splash. I'd like to know your thoughts on the matter.

I do like grinding, usually... If the combat is fun enough. As long as bullets are in good supply, I'm sure The Chrysler Building of Parasite Eve would be tolerable. Not that I'm in any hurry to do it. It's become a part of the long list of "to complete" titles.

Ah yes, I remember now. That sounds like a reason I would prefer the first Parasite Eve to the sequel, its combat was much fun. I wish it would have stayed like that... I don't remember the story, or how it connects to the first, at all. And I looked, Parasite Eve was roughly two years earlier than Vagrant Story!

I'll have to look into The 3rd Birthday more then. I looked into transferring from PS3 to Vita, I had no idea you could do that! That is so awesome. I now, finally, have Pandemonium and Silent Hill (which did work via wireless) playable on my Vita. It was very heartbreaking to see that it wasn't the solution to my Blood Omen problem, though. Makes me so sad... Thanks for letting me know that you can do that!

Haha, yeah. I'll say it a second time, that narrator in Bastion was great. I can still hear him talking and it's been months now! I do look forward to going back and completing that one, or at least playing more. I don't recall the narrator from Little Big Planet, probably one of the titles played with the volume muted. I didn't like that game as much, it became boring pretty quickly.

And same here, with The Walking Dead television series. It never really grabbed me. I'll watch it every once in a while, but I never really know what's what and who's who. Maybe it's too slow going? The game series on the other hand... We need Season Three!

The gut feeling is probably right about Persona then, best to steer away from. Anything a younger sibling would play with dating sim elements sounds horrific to me. It does seem that I am more into SMT titles for the combat. Strange Journey was fantastic. Enjoying SMT IV quite a bit too! The story took until nearly the end(?) to get interesting though. Devil Survivor will defintely be the next SMT title. I liked the hybrid strategy/traditional combat, but, again, not so much the story/characters.

Anyway...

Right now, I have a "gifted games I need to finish" going on my side bar. I want to at least finish those games first and foremost since they were gifts people had given me; and in same cases even shipped to me. I feel like the best way to appreciate that show of affection is to actually play the games, so that's why I'm trying to do that. Although I keep getting sidetracked with that as well. Looks like I might need to be strict with that as well! But after I finish with that, I might begin the recommendation list game. Good to have a reminder like that.

I have reemerged!

Dang Ol Ron Paul sounds solid, those flaws aside. I'm not expecting it to top Hotel Dusk, Zero Escape, or Ace Attorney in my heart, but I always love a good ole visual novel. Apparently it's coming to the PC? It should keep me preoccupied until Zero Escape 3.

Please let me know what you think of Fates as well. I still need to finish Awakening...

Real talk: Diddy Kong Racing was better than Mario Kart 64. I'd love to see Diddy's take on the genre revisited. (And who knows, maybe we will if those rumors are true!)

I actually am slightly tempted to attempt the Chrysler Building in Parasite Eve! Being able to carry over my favorite gun and continue modifying/upgrading it is pretty awesome! I named it, "The Kupo."

It was getting the dodge timing down that gave me trouble during the final boss. Once I was able to do it without running out of healing items, I was okay. I think I only had four items to heal with and not the better ones. I had JUST enough ammo to take it down! Ended up using the guide to "escort" me off the ship. Those were the most annoying and frustrating deaths!

Slightly tempted to download the sequel now, to someday replay in the (probably distant) future. I did manage to beat that one on the Playstation, but only remember the shower scene. I think I preferred the first title? I wonder if 3rd Birthday is playable on Vita...

Now that I think of it... Yeah, Vagrant Story does play like Parasite Eve! I can't remember which one released first though.

With Bastion, if anything, the narrator should be enough to make it worth your time. I got quite a kick out of it. Enough to, unusually, play with the volume loud enough to hear what is being said. Normally, I have it only loud enough to barely be able to hear the sound effects and/or music.

I can see why the time limit in Majora's Mask would stall you from playing it. That's pretty much where I stopped, the first save, after wasting about five of those minutes looking for the save. Already felt overwhelmed by it, but I have no idea how it actually works yet. So hopefully, it won't be so bad?

You were right about Season Two of The Walking Dead... Dead dog was the surely the less awful of situations. I feel so awful for shooting Kenny! I couldn't decide, waited until the last second to make that choice. And so many other things. Just traumatizing. I "need" a Season Three now...

Finally started SMT IV! So far, I like it, but it is a slow start. Too much talking, not enough fighting, still. I'm sure it will pick up though. That black samurai perked my interest last night. I'm playing very slowly...

Maybe I'll give Persona 4 another try? I could always get a cheap, used copy, then return it if I don't like it. The Devil Survivor titles would have to come first, though.

And I don't mind at all!

I keep getting sidetracked. I swear I have a separate list of stuff I simply promised other people I'd play asap and it's getting uncomfortably long. Knowing all that, I will say I will at some point play Suikoden! I don't buy games I don't intend to play after all! And I liked Suikoden IV quite a lot and everyone keeps saying that's the weakest game, so I imagine all the other entries will be very enjoyable for me~

Haha, oh my god. These sales are the worst. I've been trying to cut back and literally right now it's the sales that keep slipping through the cracks. I didn't intend to buy Suikoden and more recently Attack of the Friday Monsters. I was going to eventually pick both up, but I don't really have time for them right now, so they weren't a priority and then they go on sale and I cave. On the plus side, I'm actually positive for once! I just have to be strict with myself for the rest of the year.

Great news! My insider contact, one of Nintendo of Antartica's janitors, likes our Mario dating sim idea, and he's going to internally champion it! Fingers crossed!

So, it seems like you enjoyed Danganronpa? Apparently it's coming to the PC, so I'll probably score it on there?

I hope to own a Vita someday! It's a project for another day, given that I just bought an Xbox One, but the Vita seems like a really tight system. I'm not sure if Persona 4 and SMT are for me (I don't usually care for RPGs), but I'll absolutely try them. I consider them to be required reading. I feel the same way over Call of Duty 4, which is another game I'll try someday.

So we've been talking about Paper Mario, and now new rumors over a Wii U entry have arose! I figured that'd be something that'd be moved over to the NX or something, but whatever happens, I hope it follows the first two. I respect that they wanted to experiment with Super Paper Mario and Sticker Star, but it's been a long time since the first two games.

Galaxy 2 compliments the first one well. I'd say it's the stronger game overall, though that's certainly debatable.

My first impressions of Rare Replay are pretty positive, but I haven't played enough to really say for sure. I enjoy Rare's output (even if a lot of it hasn't aged all that well), so I'll have fun. Honestly, the biggest problem I have with Rare Replay so far is the absence of Donkey Kong. Obviously that can't be helped, but the Kongs were such a big part of Rare's history, so it makes me sad that they can't be a part of the celebration.
