Currently Playing:
Okami, Raiden III (both PS2)

Ar tonelico, and get around to finishing God of War (both PS2)

I rented Super Paper Mario and was very disappointed with it.
Cooking Mama for Wii is also crap, good thing I got it for free...

TJ, glad to hear you got a copy of Magician Lord. I've heard it's real good.


Currently Playing:

Nothing, actually. Working more on designing games for my thesis.
Instead, I've been watching Red Dwarf.


Recently Played Through:

Super Paper Mario - I don't really recommend this title at $50. Wait for it to become a bargain title if you're interested. The game pacing is a bit slow, particularly with having to switch between all your abilities using something similar to the oldschool Mega Man menus, only a bit slower.


Waiting for:


Raiden III - ordered from Amazon, but canceling the order as a local store is ordering a copy much faster. And hoping I won't be disappointed.


Wanting to get:

Jets 'n Guns Gold - expansion pack to the original. It's been out since December, but busy/waiting for them to fix the bugs.

Odin Sphere - 2D action-RPG for PS2 based on Norse mythology? Sounds interesting! Made by Atlus and past the system's life cycle? Sounds like it could become a collector's item!

Metal Slug Anthology (PS2) - not high on the list b/c I already have the collection for Wii (and I hate the control scheme and the other things the screwed up, which is why I want the PS2 version). However, hoping it doesn't become impossible to find before I can justify the purchase.


Most recently purchased:

The Wisdom Tree Bible trilogy for NES, (100% complete and in good shape) and Wizardry II NES (also complete). I don't really intent to play them, but they were pretty cheap and good discussion items and probably good collector's items. Especially because in Exodus you can throw Baby Jesus in the river! And continuing to curse local game stores for putting price stickers on everything. The fires of Collector's Hell go up 5 degrees for each sticker they slap on a game.


Waiting for:

Metroid Prime 3
Super Mario Galaxy
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Dracula X Chronicles


Would really like to play but don't have the money and can't justify the purchase of a new console for it:

Castle Crashers (Xbox Live Arcade)
Loco Roco (PSP)[/b]
The sleep of Reason produces monsters.

"Until next time..."
Captain Commando

Currently addicted to:
Frets on Fire (PC) Guitar hero clone, though it is really coming into its own with all the mods.

Playing


Vanguard: Saga of Heroes(PC) MMO that actually makes you feel powerful from level 1! Awesome, but some technical glitches. Also, for hardcore players.

Super Paper Mario(Wii) Fun as hell, the Paper Mario game for people who don't like Paper Mario games.....all 3 of them.

Recently beaten

God of War II(PS2) Distilled awesome, but the cliffhanger ending is a real :o :(

Waiting for

Spore (PC) Dammit stop delaying it, I want to play. It had better be the best damn game ever when it comes out :x

Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii) Better have online....EASY, no-16-digit-number-trading online

Too Human (X360) I like coop games, but I had better be able to play with my friends on the couch as well as my brother accross the country! Online-only co-op sucks!

Mass Effect (X360) New Bioware RPG. Nothing more needs to be said.

Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) The next Mario platformer. Nuff said.

Metroid Prime 3 (Wii) Do I really need to say anything on this games behalf?

Crysis (PC) Crazy FPS action and an intuitive editor? One, please!

I think that's it

Currently Purchased/Played Through: Jade Empire (PC) - I don't think this game is worth the $40 I paid for. It seemed several steps backwards after Knights of the Old Republic. It felt too short (I made it through the game in just over 12 hours and that was with doing nearly every side quest) and seemed to be over just when it was getting good. I know KOTOR isn't much longer overall, but it seemed to be much bigger than Jade Empire. I hope Dragon Age is better than this.

Blast Corps (N64) - I hadn't played this for a while so I played it again and I forgot how much fun I had with it years ago and how difficult some of the stages were. I wouldn't mind a sequel of sorts on a modern system.

Dungeon Siege 2 (PC) - I'm still playing this....I'm in the burial grounds area right now, forget what its called at the moment.

Not much else besides the occasional old game. Waiting for some games to come out...seems like I'm always waiting forever for games to come out.

I've currently been hitting Ebay to fill some gaps in my collection, for hopefully cheap. I got some Legacy of Kain, MGS Substance and even BattleToads on the NES!!! Hope it doesn't show up on the Virtual Console.

After Metal Gear Online shut down, I've been reliving the entire series. Played SnakeEater and I played all the way througn MGS2 (which I haven't done in years)

Oh yeah. I've only been playing online since I bought my PS3 couple of months ago. Been playing SOCOM 1,2,3. I've a been using the name MDb 4ever, so you can see me there. Kinda wanted to see if any other MDBers were on SOCOM, that's why I used the name. So far ...nobody :( ... everyone thinks its MOB 4ever not MDb 4ever.

EXCITE TRUCK

Recently Completed
Zelda: TP (Wii)


Patiently Awaiting

Metroid Prime 3 (Wii)
Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii)
Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
Dewy's Adventure (Wii)

Army of Two (360)

Hoping To Start Playing Again And Someday Complete
Super Mario Sunshine (GC) (just can't get into it)

Might Purchase When They're Cheaper
Kororinpa: Marble Mania (Wii) (heard it's actually a very good game, just not worth $40)

On a side note, I recommend EXCITE TRUCK to anyone. It has a frustrating learning curve (you'll be running into a lot of trees), but damn if this isn't the funnest arcade racer I've ever played! It's like Hydro Thunder on wheels. Seriously, best Wii game I've played yet, certainly better than the disappointment that was Twilight Princess. The only bad thing is that the multiplayer sucks. It's a lot more fun to just rotate the Wii Remote with a few friends playing through single player.

I've never complete Super Mario Sunshine either. I just can't get into it either. I just don't like the story or what you do in the stages.

Where's a new 3D Mario game with BOTH Mario & Luigi? Luigi better be in Galaxy!

Actually, I wasn't serious :D


But on that note, what's wrong with a multiplayer Mario game that isn't Mario Party/Kart/etc anyway?

I don't think there's anything wrong with it, Nintendo clearly just hates Luigi
