I have one of those... I think Dark Souls. Never played it though. It's sitting in my drawer of "to be played".

Yes, the title music is the reason I got Solstice, though the $4 price tag didn't hurt either.

Thank you, sir.

Your game note for NIER indicates that you're still working on it. If you intend to complete it someday as well, I wish you luck. Some of the boss fights are pretty tricky in hard mode, and the Life in the Sands sidequest will make you want to tear your hair out.

i'm actually a little excited to play WL2 after this since it looks like it only improved upon WL1. man it's so sad that wario games don't get nearly as much recognition as mario games.

I know all too well, but since my Backlog is entitled my "Endless Quest" I changed it accordingly!

Are you taking a break from gaming? Your last update was 2 month ago!

Hey, you have lots of great games on your list! I was snooping through your games and saw lots of good stuff (Dark Cloud 2, Deadly Premonition, etc.) Just wanted to send a friendly compliment!

Never played the first one but I couldn't get into Baldur's Gate, sadly. xD

Also the yellow looks much better now.

Only just noticed your comment! I used to play Street Fighter 3 back on Dreamcast quite a bit and I don't remember it ever giving me much trouble. I'm seriously struggling to even finish this xbla version...

No clue which Yakuza you should start with, since I'm playing the third one as a suggestion from a friend of mine. Sorry.

One other gripe I forgot to mention: 3) some of the audio dialogue is kind of garbled due to static, background noise, and etc. I never did check to see if there is a subtitle option, which would totally address that... But I missed some lines because of that . Certainly worth $10 in my opinion. I think that's what I dropped for it, too.

I liked Cursed Mountain quite a bit. It was a good game...good graphics, an intriguing story, and it built and maintained a steadily tense environment. I had some minor gripes with it. If you're curious, they are 1) some areas were too dark...there should be a way to get light rather than just stumble around...matches or something. 2) some of the 'prayer' controls you use to fight ghosts and demons were a little touchy. To be honest, I got quite a bit better at doing it, and it not always working the first time did add to the stress of being attacked, but I don't think that was the intention. I think motion controls are stupid in general, though.

Other than that, I think parts of the game got to be a little linear and easy. I think if they had made some sort of time pressure on you throughout the game (hypothermia risk?), that it would have made it a more frantic and stressful experience. As it is, you can run but you almost never need to. You can climb with your pick axes quickly, but you never need to. So you can just hang out at 23,000 feet forever without any consequences for wasting time it seemed like. There is a portion of the game where you have to use oxygen bottles due to high altitude, which almost achieves the sense of urgency I'm referring to, but I think they gave you too much oxygen for it to really do anything besides add some depth to the climbing experience.

Probably much more info than you needed, but I wanted to be clear about where the game fell short. I liked it a lot and will play it again to try to get everything (I missed some non-critical items journals and etc.) I'd probably give it a 7 or 8 outta 10...

Meh, the targeting system is iffy and the delay in between when you attack and guard is infuriating. It's a mixed bag I guess.
A lifetime of fun.
