Minecraft, PC - Finished out the achievements, well sort of. https://mojang.atlassian.net/browse/MC-2097 prevented me from finishing it 'officially', but I have killed the Ender Dragon and warped back, watched the 'ending' and that was that. Good thing too. I needed a break from this game.
Trauma Center, Wii - I'm replaying the game. Already to Chapter 3 again with all 'S' ranks. The game is moving a lot faster than the first time I played it. Still really like it though.
Faster Than Light, PC - Having beat the game once I figured I should give it one more shot. I got to the second phase of the boss with little to no damage... then was horribly smoked. It is a 2 hour slog fest with a cheap 60 second 'sorry, you lose' tossed in at the end. How does dross like this ever get so many awards? Because people like pain and they like to inflict it upon themselves repeatedly until they "beat it" and claim dominance. Unfortunately, sometimes the joke is on you. This game blows.
Left 4 Dead 2, PC - Having received this as a gift during the Steam Christmas sale I gave it a shot. I played online once, but realized I don't even know what I was doing... so I started going through the campaign in single player. I don't get to play it much due to content and the fact most of my gaming is done in front of my kids... This isn't a game I can play in front of my kids.
Metro 2033, PC - This one also gets played very infrequently due to content. I like the game... but I don't really like the save system. Eventually I will finish this one out.
Star Wars: KOTOR, PC - I'm already through the first two planets and pushing onward. I forgot how well Bioware use to make games. For some reason I wanted to play evil, which is a first for me picking up games like this. Usually I always play as a good guy, then on the replay be evil... I guess technically this is a replay.
TrackMania United, PC - which is funny, I still play the free edition (TrackMania Forever) more than the paid edition. I have little reason to ever upgrade this game to the latest edition. Still provides the time trial racing in me something to do. It is great because it isn't a simulation and yet doesn't have rubber banding either (see below for more about this)
Kingdom Builder, iPad - The winner of the German board game of the year award, now on iPad. Plays pretty good too, but doesn't have the expansion with it yet. I can usually beat the AI.
Stone Age, iPad - One of my favorite worker placement board games, now on iPad. Works great and it replaced my other board games and card games on the device. I usually beat the AI.
The World Ends With You, iPad - Yep, basically the same game as on the DS only without the dual screen stupid that the DS edition had. I'm yet to finish this game as it is another long pushing RPG of sorts. I will have to say it is 100% better on the iPad than the DS.
Jetpack, iPad - Super casual grinding collect'em all game. Good in 60 second intervals or less. No real point, but for some reason still interesting enough to pick up and play every so often.
VS Racing 2, iPad - It has the look of Super Sprint, yeah the classic top down racer. It is an okay game though because of how poor the rubber banding is in the game. Why does every racer have rubber banding except high end simulator types? Because racing games are mostly lame and programming the AI is hard or something. So instead, rubber band it. So much potential, so wasted.
Fire Emblem, The Sacred Stones - Getting my Fire Emblem fix in. The more I hear about the 3DS game coming out soon, the more I want it. I'll try and burn out on Fire Emblem before I end up buying a $240 edition of Awakening (3DS + the Game).
So for the year
Games Played: 13
Games Enjoyed: 11 out of 13
Favorite Game so far: Minecraft. I don't know how much I have put into this game... oh yeah I do, statistics say 5.60 days! wow. that's a lot of time.
Least Favorite: VS Racing 2. So much potential, so lame.
KOTOR with the Darkside was way more fun than following the Lightside... especially in the second game.
@TTDog I was going to say the exact same thing. Unlike Mass Effect, the morality system in KotOR totally changes your abilities in combat. Being an ultra-powerful Sith by the end of one of those games is one of the most satisfying things ever. Being a Jedi ends up being kind of lame.
And I've been getting my Fire Emblem fix, too. I've had Radiant Dawn for the Wii for years but never played it much because I sucked at it. Having a free copy of Sacred Stones on my 3DS fixed that. That game has a much more gradual difficulty curve and a better tutorial, so now I feel like I actually know how to play those games. Even though I kept failing the second mission in Radiant Dawn, I'm making pretty good progress now.
The demo for Awakening was pretty awesome. It's the same basic formula but doesn't feel - presentation wise - like the exact same game as all the others. There are a few new twists in battle that make it even more fun, too. If you were waiting for a game to push you over the edge to get a 3DS, Fire Emblem would probably be a good one.
Left 4 Dead 2 can't be played in front of the kids... Well, at least you draw parental lines. My brother doesn't. He blasts Wu-Tang and DMX MP3s in front of his daughters (10 and 12). Some parents are real winners, eh?
I still own, and enjoy, The World Ends with You for DS. Though, it'd be nice to have it on my Android phone. Android already has a swath of pretty good JRPGs thanks to Kemco. And I think FF1 and FF3 are already on Android. So TWEwY and Chrono Trigger wouldn't be asking Square-Enix for too much.
