    Getting pretty close to beating Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams for PC now. I'm on 3-9, so that leaves me with just one normal stage and the final boss stage to go. My progress has slowed down a little, though. When I first started, I'd play about three stages at a time before I'd want a break, then two and maybe a quick replay of an early stage to improve my performance, and now one and maybe a replay. The later stages feel a lot longer, but maybe it's just a matter of me losing more lives rather than the stages literally being bigger, I don't know. I don't have many complaints with the game, but that would be one, as the stages do feel way too long sometimes. They could've just as well doubled the number of stages by splitting the content into shorter bursts and I wouldn't complain. It's especially a pain for redoing stages because even when you're good, they still take a decent chunk of time, and with just a few slip-ups, you have to redo it all if you're going for a perfect five star ranking.

    Never posted in one of these threads that I can recall, but feel like it right now for some reason.

    I'm playing Bioshock right now. Kind of ashamed to admit it has taken me this long to get to it since I played System Shock 1 & 2 back when and loved those. Oddly, I think they were much creepier and tense than is Bioshock, but Bioshock was 'getting to me' more when I started than those earlier titles did. To the point that I wasn't eager to play. I don't like being creeped out or scared that much. Anyway, I'm just entering the Smuggler's Den (I think that's what it is called) after the battle where you had to give up all your weapons. I'm pretty well hooked at this point and can't wait to play more. Playing on PC.

    I'm playing the Angry Birds Trilogy on 360 right now. I'm about 40% through, I'm three-starring everything as I go.

    When I game with my daughter, we usually play Nintendo Land or New Super Mario Bros. U on the Wii U.

    I got up to the final boss of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams on PC, but, oof, it's gonna take some practice. And unfortunately I'm going to have to redo the stage because I had to eventually quit the last time I was playing after spending a long time on many failed attempts. Given the unlimited lives and the length of stages, it's pretty dumb that the game doesn't at least have a quicksave feature to return you to your last checkpoint in a stage. I mean, it wouldn't affect the difficulty at all; it would merely make the game friendlier to short sessions. Anyway, back to the final boss, he could be improved too. He's such a pain because not only is he very challenging but the battle takes FOREVER. The animations are so slow that much of the time just feels like waiting for him to do something, only to quickly die as soon as he does, forcing you to tediously sit through all that over and over. It feels like all eternity before you even get an opportunity to land a single hit. I know all the bosses follow a 3-hit-kill design, and they want the final battle to feel epic and not be over in an instant, but I would've much preferred having a final battle that moved along quicker and required more than three hits than spending so much time waiting and dodging.

    Meh I like the south Lamar location better. I'm always there and the staff seems much more helpful.

    Playing: Chrono Trigger (Stuck at a boss a while back with overpowered attacks based on its hands, will resume sometime later)
    Fantasia (Genesis) - Just came in the mail today. With the help of Game Genie it'll be tolerable.
    Quackshot (Genesis) - Expecting in a few days. Already played a bit on emulator in preparation.

    I picked up a copy of Valkyria Chronicles II for PSP a few weeks back, gotta get back to that sometime.

    Doing 100% runs in both super mario world and Donkey Kong Country 2 bit by bit. On that note, fuck Bramble Scramble. Forgot how hard that one was until I spent an hour trying to pass it. Probably would've felt way less cheap if either just the monkeys or just the parrot was the hitbox and not BOTH.

    Still pretty early in mario world.

    I've only been focusing on two games recently:

    Tales of Destiny 2 (JPN) - I'm about two-thirds through it so far. The battle system took a bit to get used to, as melee attacks aren't as effective as magic. I pretty much have to use the melee characters as meat shields, while my spell casters break through the enemy's defenses with magic.

    Probably the most memorable battle in the game so far has been against Barbatos "No Items Ever" Goetia. I actually forgot about the no items rule, but I still managed to win the first battle with him. However, I doubt I'll be as lucky in the other two fights with him.

    Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch - I'm currently level grinding a few recently caught familiars near the city of Hamlin. Like the DS version, the familiar raising system is really addicting. (Although the capture rates seem to be worse in the PS3 version.)

    The north location is in walking distance from me. I won second place by playing as the clown, being super cheap and pressing X and occasionally Y. They told me not to use him in the finals, and I was just happy I got there so I got Zangieff character, was hoping to do the uncomfortable squeeze hold, but didnt get to. I bought a Final Fantasy 7 walkthrough with half my winnings. It was double elimination, out of five guys, a dudes gf wouldnt play for whatever reason. I lost my first match, then beat the 5th guy who had to fight all of us to get into the finals haha, then I won the semi and the finals began, and I lost the clown :S It was so much fun, this game is weird and crappy as hell. The Elvis level will stay with me for better or worse.

    Im going to go to the south location for the Super Smash Bros event.

    I posted about it in the Beaten in 2013 topic, but I beat Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams for PC not long after my last post. I haven't touched it much since then. I still want to earn 5 stars in all the stages, though. Part of the reason I haven't been playing it is because the game didn't run well on my PC, so I ended up playing through the game on my fiance's laptop, which he's been using a lot lately. Another one of the downsides of PC gaming. It'd be nice to have it on my 360 when it's available, but I doubt I'd be willing to drop even more cash on the game after backing the Kickstarter at $100.

    Anyway, I have, however, been trying out a bunch of imports. I tried out a little of Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu 6, which I just picked up on a whim even though I don't really play or collect N64 sports games, and I played Densha de Go! 64 enough to beat it. Finally got a decent price on a game + controller combo. I imagine that the game might be a little dull with the standard controller, but the train controller really makes it. I'm still kinda lousy at the game in my opinion, especially at stopping in the stations well, but I've been getting better and better.

    I also pulled out my PC-FX again, with the intention of beating a couple games I've been planning to play for a while. Before that, though, I had a whole stack of games I bought before Christmas to test out. I put a little bit of time into Fushigi no Kuni no Angelique, Ah! Megami-sama, Ojousama Sousamou, Voice Paradise, Can Can Bunny Extra DX, Doukyusei 2, Graduation 2: Neo Generation FX, Zoku Hatukoi Monogatari: Shugaku Ryokou, and the Galaxy Fraulein Yuna FX demo. I'm hoping to someday have a full set, so I was just picking up some cheap titles with these, which, for the PC-FX, means pretty text-heavy titles. :P I do have many of the more action-based titles already, but there are a few more that will take some more cash than these titles to acquire. These games seemed cool, though, and with any luck, maybe they'll get fan patches someday.

    I finally started up Pia Carrot e Youkoso!! (AKA Welcome to Pia Carrot) on PC-FX after looking forward to playing it for a long time. Many years ago, I read a review on the game (found here: http://www.honestgamers.com/reviews/3681.html), and I found myself really fascinated with the game (granted, that's not just the game's doing, but also because I'm a big fan of the reviewer, as he makes every game he writes about come alive). Back then, I didn't even know if I would ever own a PC-FX or have an opportunity to play Pia Carrot, let alone in English, yet here I am. Thanks to a couple of great guys who happen to be fans of this unfairly maligned system, we have the world's first English fan translation for a PC-FX game, a system that has never seen any of its games in English before. And even though I typically never touch fan translations, instead opting for the real deal when it comes to imports, the fact that I could rip my own official copy of the game, patch the image, burn an English disc, and pop it straight into my system makes all the difference. For a second, you can almost imagine that the PC-FX actually did get released outside of Japan. So, anyway, I've played through the game once now, which only lasts for one month in-game. In real time, it shouldn't take more than a few hours tops. I didn't win over any of the girls this time. I just sort of dabbled around in everything at first, trying out all the different jobs and meeting everybody I could, then about half way through I started focusing more on Shiho, the manager, since it seemed like I was running into her a lot and my stats seemed good for her. I guess it wasn't enough time to make her really like me, though. But the game is intended to be replayed many times, and I'm sure it'll go much faster in subsequent attempts, as I focus more and can somewhat skip past text I've already read.

    My daughter and I are working on New Super Mario Bros. U. We finished the Story mode with 5 stars earlier this week, now we're starting to work on the challenge modes.

    Solo, I've been playing Angry Birds Trilogy on my 360. After tonight, I'm 64% of the way through, and have a rank of 2241 overall. It's slower-going because I insist on three-starring everything.

    Been working my way thru Max Payne 3 on 360. I also played Mahjong Party on PS2 last time. It was an interesting time waster.

    Hurray, I finally got a real ending in Welcome to Pia Carrot on PC-FX on my third go. While I could understand not being successful my first time, it was pretty frustrating going through the game a second time and failing yet again, despite that I was really focusing on Satomi. For the third attempt, I focused on Shouko. Either though I got her ending, I still haven't unlocked every scene with her which is a little perplexing. A couple are just alternate versions with the different uniforms, but I have, I believe, four other pictures I have no idea how to get. Oh well, I'll move on to a different girl and see if I can stumble across the rest of Shouko's.

    Don't judge me too much. Currently attempting to play Earthbound and Wario Land 2. It's taking me a bit to get into Earthbound.
