    @impynickers Yes… Hawken. We’ll see how many of us unload that game onto the Squawkbox once the NDA runs out.

    @bluesforbuddha Agreed on Persona 4 Arena and Last Story.

    I couldn’t afford P4A yet, but whenever I can I’ll be totally down for its visual novel storyline. With any other game (like BlazBlue) I wouldn’t even remotely give a shit, but since I’m actually invested in P4’s characters, I’m totally prepared to spend 40 hours reading a book on my 55″ HDTV. Speaking of visual novels, 999 2 comes out on the 23rd of this month.

    I actually finished Last Story within a rental a couple weeks back, and it felt like a good typical JRPG mashed into the structure of Mass Effect 3 – one central town, real time combat with somewhat scripted tactics, etc. The character designs were cool and you’ll really hear Uematso enter the scene during the final boss fights. Otherwise though, Xenoblade at least has me invested in terms of sheer amount of content and freedom of exploration.

    @bluesforbuddha Everything that you say about P4A makes me want it even more than I want it right now. The only issue is that I’m not about to play a game like that without a new joystick, and I can’t afford a new joystick for a little bit. But, when I do, I’m going to gorge myself on Street Fighter IV AE and P4A. Does anyone else play Street Fighter here? I used to have a mean Cammy in SFIV, and I’ve been jonesing to get my fighting game on.

    I’m looking forward to the story mode for P4A since, like you, I love those characters and can’t wait to spend some more time with them. I’ve also heard that Labrys is a worthy addition to the Persona universe, which I was a bit worried about. I have been trying to stay spoiler free, though, so I guess I’ll make my own judgment when I finally pick all of that stuff up. Also @bluesforbuddha, I heard that Mitsuru is a charge character. Is that true? If so, that is a shame, because I just do not possess the patience for dealing with that shit. I guess I’ll find another main, but Mitsuru is my favorite character of those on the roster. Maybe Kanji will match my playstyle…

    I know I mentioned it here at some point in time, but Mortal Kombat 9 is both incredibly competent and incredibly entertaining. The fighting system isn’t anywhere near as deep as Arc Sys or Capcom 2D fighters, but it isn’t as clunky as MK games were for a while there. Also, the DLC is both spot-on and incredibly fun. Freddy Krueger could have been dumb as hell, but he’s a ton of fun to play with and matches the tongue-in-cheek tone of the game really well. And, finally, the game plays super well with just a regular controller, so it’s the kind of thing you can fuck around with without investing in a stick.

    I have no idea how I got sidetracked talking about MK…

    LA Noire is down for the count as is Quest for Glory IV (let the podcasting commence…). I don’t have a ton to say about LA Noire, but I’m curious as to why people who fold origami in media go psycho and do horrible things. Maybe I should keep my origami folding to myself lest anyone think I’m going to become a serial killer/arsonist/whatever else…

    I came home from work on Thursday and my (much) better half had a stack of new games sitting on the couch based on the Squad’s recommendations. She picked up Red Dead Redemption, Assassin’s Creed II, and SSX. (The last one wasn’t a recommendation, but I played the demo to death and wanted to give it a shot.) AC2 managed to make itself fun outside of assassination missions, which is something the first one didn’t get right. It’s a shame, too, because the crusades are such an underutilized time period in games, as is the crazy philosophy of Hassan-I-Sabbah. I periodically flirt with the idea of getting “Nothing is true. Everything is permitted” as a tattoo.

    Red Dead is a lot of fun, but I’m trying not to get too OCD about it. There is already after only a few hours of play a ton of stuff to do, and it sends my brain into that overdrive where I get overwhelmed by choice and ultimately end up doing nothing. I don’t give a fuck about playing horseshoes, for instance, but I still play it for some reason.

    @beige Like Persona, don’t like fighting games, own MK9, hmm. Also, who the eff is Yu Nakatomi? You mean CHARLIE TUNOKU?

    KSP is a rocket sim (also space planes) that has a space sim wrapped around it that is basically a mirror of our solar system. There’s a pretty cool, easy to use, make your own rocket a la carte section, but getting off the planet is just the beginning, as far as I can tell, and they’re adding more planets. Getting a solid build together just to make it TO the moon, let alone land on it, get out and walk/jetpack around, and return home, is way harder, physics-wise than it sounds. People go nuts with geosynchronous orbit, slingshots, space stations, space rendevous, mods, etc. Crazy stuff.

    @cptcarnage Rescue mission? That’s… amazing. One day.
