Likewise, sadly.

Currently looking to get a few other games I missed, and an HD Collection containing a game I've wanted to own since two console generations ago. (Yes, I'm counting the Wii U as moving forward a gen even without competitors.)

RaiderZ came out yesterday! You probably have no idea what that is. To put it simply: it's like a Monster Hunter MMO. Which means it's hella rad. It is also free, which means you should totally play it. Also, you can pick up parts of monsters that you break off and use them as weapons, including a tuna (which is surprisingly effective), and you can find some just laying around, like, oh, say, a cannon. You literally take it off its stand and blast people with it, and it's fantastic.

Also, should you decide to play, you should totally join the Fleetfoot server (because the other one wouldn't let me connect). Which I guess was a... West American server, I think I was in, so yes.

So apparently, there's a chance my mom will get me Black 2 AND Halo 4, as well as White 2 for my sister.

Once I get Black 2, I guess I'll try to slower my pace so that I don't beat it in five minutes.

I always thought three to four days was normal for Pokémon games...

Ahh Black Friday. One of the busiest days ever to the point of where there's people in my face 24/7 at the mall.
But these deals man.

So I bought a couple of things. The biggest thing was a red 3DS and with it came Super Mario Land 3D. Oddly enough, the entire thing was $150, despite the 3DS being $170. But I'm not complaining. Then I got Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception, and Assassin's Creed III, the latter being $35. God I love Best Buy <3 And after so long, my parents and I finally got my new HD TV after my sister broke my old TV because she's stupid.
Barely paid $200 for all of my games though, and I do not regret it. I got some other !#%$ but that's not worth mentioning. I love you Black Friday. And you too Best Buy <3 I'm probably going to get Pokemon Black 2 sometime if I find my old DS Phat charger so I can get rid of it. Useless thing...

Also for those wondering, I bought my games with part of my YouTube money, and the money I made from some jobs at food joints (the majority of where the money came from).

So I beat floor ??? in Sequence, traded in my Lightwave Blade for some Tomahawk Missile Bears, and the last boss suddenly didn't seem that difficult anymore. So yeah, I'd suggest picking up Sequence while it's on sale on Steam. It's worth it.

As for games I bought, Good Old Games is doing a five for ten sale. I got myself Resonance, Trine and To The Moon among some other games.

So during my break today I went to Gamestop and got Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.

Let's see if I'll get good at this genre.

So another Steam sale has come and gone (well. It's still here), and I managed to pick up Tropico 4 and Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams.

Yay for not dropping a ton of money on this one!

Geez, this was harder to get into than I thought it'd be. It's really frustrating to have an Ultra Combo ready, and my character only does it like 25% of the time. I dunno if I'm going too fast or if I'm not doing a proper quarter circle twice or what. And I'm under the pressure of having someone attack me while I'm trying to do it. If I can't pull off Ultra Combos fluidly, it'll be a long while before I learn to do canceling and super canceling.

That being said, I'm still having lots of fun with this game. I'm sure I'll get better the more I play it.

Oh, and I beat Ryu's Arcade Mode on Medium after a million continues. Now I know why everyone hates Seth so much.

ZombiU is the best Resident Evil game in a long time.
Yeah, I said it.

So I started playing Tropico 4 at about seven, blinked a few times and it was eleven.


Help.

So I'm actually making good progress with SSFIV:AE. Medium is hardly a problem for me anymore. While the combos I usually do are very small (2 to 3 hits), I make good use of techniques like throwing and Focus Attacks. I'm also getting better at pulling off Ultra Combos. I still need to try to get the hang of cancelling, as well as comboing altogether.

I also managed to beat Arcade mode on Hardest. Only because Zangief's Lariat is broken as !#%$.

Played a bit of Legend of Grimrock this weekend after buying it last week on the Steam sale for like $4.

It's a really neat game. I'm enjoying it so far. I have no idea how to do good character builds, but I'm thinking I got the basics down. Trying an unarmed fighter and evasion rogue in the front and a shock mage and missile rogue in the back. So far, so good.

Image December, huh? Aren't there still a few Scrubs out there that think we're gonna see some sort of apocalypse or something? End is nigh and all that?

...I think now's a good time to do another run of Majora's Mask! Hoo!

On the note of B-Man's post, apocalypse and all, I've been focusing mostly on Assassin's Creed III compared to my other games (Uncharted 3, Super Mario Land 3D, Sly 2 and 3). I need to see the end of this trilogy before the world ends after all. Revelations notwithstanding.

Been playing Halo 4, mainly multiplayer and Spartan Ops, and just got my first specialization (Stalker). Also been playing Paper Mario: Sticker Star. It's certainly different from the other Paper Marios, but it's a decent game.

In addition to Halo 4 and Sticker Star, I've begun Fallout: New Vegas, and just received as a gift from B-Man a platformer called Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit, that I added to my wishlist after watching my roommate play a bit of it. I'm installing it now, but it looks like fun. So thank you for the game, B-Man.

So B bought me Primordia on Steam. Thanks, B, but now I feel like I owe you.

Thanks to the efforts of B, I now have Ys Origin on Steam.

Will play tomorrow when finals are over
