Talk about all gaming unrelated to the Dreamcast. This includes emulation of other consoles as well.

Also got Dark Souls, but I'm not going to play it now, or before Skyrim, Saints Row or Zelda so it'll be collecting dust until next year sometime most likely.
Why not wait until next year when the price drops and when you're ready to play it before purchasing it?
I assume he probably got the free limited edition upgrade before it became super rare.
I see. I saw the free upgrade and considered it myself. I need to get better at Demon's Souls first though. That game makes me question my gaming skills like no other. I think I finished the first quest possibly (barely).

Got done with Batman's main story sooner than I thought. Maybe because it's kinda short, maybe because it's awesome. Still only 38% complete though...there's New Game + also. Those are things to come back to another day though. Will move onto Dark Souls now.

Just what I needed, another game that I probably won't have the time to play any time soon. Oh well.
I got this release day, it's still sitting in the mailer from amazon. I need to stop buying games, since I've not turned on a system in weeks.

I'm in much the same boat. I keep buying games that I have no time to play. I don't think I've sat down to actually actively play a game since I beat Ar tonelico 3 a few months back...

Weird, that is also the last game I beat back in like March or something.

I've been curious about the Lunar games, but they're always on the pricy side. Weren't they remade for Saturn? Any word on whether the Saturn or Sega CD versions are preferred--or if indeed there is any notable difference?

From what I read on the net, there seems to be quite a bit of mixed feelings on the matter. The Sega CD version is best for those wanting to experience the original. The Saturn and PS1 versions had quite a few changes, such as an entirely new soundtrack (Saturn version being superior because it had much better sound quality then the PS1 version, but was only released in Japan). The GBA Lunar is like a more basic version of the PS1/Sat ones. And then there's the PSP version, which has superior graphics and exclusive content, but lacking the free roam world map.

I believe most people who don't prefer the Sega CD version tend to prefer the PS1/Sat versions. Some people also think the story of the PS1/Sat versions makes more sense due to the changes or "enhancements" made.

Having played pretty much all of the versions of Lunar: The Silver Star, I can say that the Sega CD version is indeed the best of them.

There are actually two versions of the game available for the Saturn, both of which came out only in Japan. The first, and most common of them, is simply called Lunar Silver Star Story. The second one is Lunar Silver Star Story Complete, and it features better video sequences (but it requires the VideoCD/MPEG card for the Saturn to play).

My opinion on the matter is that the story made the most sense in the original version, and the changes made in the story detract from the game.

And now, I really want to play all of the Lunar games again...

Kirby's Return To Dreamland (Wii)
Battlefield 3 (360)

Both ends of the gaming spectrum. Looking forward to Kirby more, I loved Epic Yarn.

Super Mario 3D Land. Stupid name, great game. It seems to draw equally from NSMB and Mario 3. Being a portable game, it's a little shorter/easier than its home console counterparts, but it does everything VERY well and it looks like there's going to be a lot to come back for in terms of replay value. It also manages to use the 3D in a way that feels less like a gimmick and more like something that actually makes the game easier to play.

Just got the Skyward Sword/Wiimote bundle.

Probably won't get to play it until tomorrow though. But I'm excited.
It's thinking...
