I'll be pitching a shutout for the next 10+ days as it's vacation time and I'm taking nothing games related.

Today though, I'll probably get in a little Phoenix Wright, some Hotel Dusk and maybe a little COD2.

After that....books, magazines, conversation...The Rockford Files on DVD... but no gaming whatsoever.

Possibly no GT either  eek

Top priority is putting Majora's Mask to bed.  Then I should be focusing on Hotel Dusk, which started really slow but is finally starting to get more interesting.

I am sooo unfocused gaming-wise. I put in a different game every time I boot up the 360.

Maybe this weekend I'll start a few more games, I have a sealed copy of Gears of War and used copies of Tomb Raider and the last Splinter Cell which I haven't ever booted up yet along with a bunch of games that I've barely started like Just Cause, 99 Nights and Marvel Ultimate Alliance.

Then again my gamerscore is exactly 10000 and I like that. Maybe I'll just stop gaming altogether!

is that a promise?  Tongue

probably a light gaming weekend for me, maybe some Vegas or GoW MP tonight.  I picked up the Alias 5 season boxed set (the one that looks like the Rambaldi(sp?) cube from the show) for $100 bucks used yesterday so I plan on watching alot of that.

Since I'm looking at getting a new PC at the end of February I'm holding off on any PC games (unless I resub to WoW) so I can enjoy them in their full graphical glory (hopefully).

Isn't the Rimbaldi box the entire series, not just season 5?

I plan on finishing Final Fantasy III this weekend. All my guys are at level 52 and I think I'm at the beginning of the final dungeon. If I finish it and I'm still in the mood to game I'll probably go back to playing the first Phoenix Wright. I have two cases left.

I finished The Longest Journey yesterday, so I'll probably either put more time into Indigo Prophecy or Syberia over the weekend.  Not sure how much I like Indigo Prophecy (the story and gameplay are unique, but clunky controls are aggravating), so it'll probably be Syberia.   Also picked up Battle for Middle Earth 2 yesterday, so I'm going to make a concerted attempt to get back into RTS's.  Played through the tutorial missions last night and was pretty 'meh', but I suppose that's to be expected.

yeah, it's all 5 seasons plus a hidden disc that I almost missed.  what' crazy is that there were selling the first 3 seasons in a box set for 40 bucks more, and that set was used too.

Hope you have Syberia 2 standing by.  Syberia 1 doesn't really have an ending so much as it just sort of stops.

Doh! Reading comprehension FTL! Still, this has got me interested in watching Alias again. I watched the first season and enjoyed it and I have the second season sitting around here somewhere.

For some reason I'm actually JONESIN' for some Enchanted Arms.  My Xbox Live profile tells me the last time I played it was in September... so that'll be interesting giving that another go.

And of course I want to get as far as possible into Zelda for the Wii along with some other Wii titles (WarioWare and VC games).

I'll probably be playing a nice amount of multiplayer GoW.

I've got two more cases in the first Phoenix Wright, the third tier of Expert on GH2 and, inevitably, more Halo.  Always with the more Halo.

I don't even know.  I have been on a game-buying binge lately.  I would like to finish Marvel Ultimate Alliance but I don't see that happening.  I would also like to finish the 2-star level on Elite Beat Agents.  I am supposed to play some Company of Heroes tonight with friends.  I would like to check out the MP demo of Battlestations:  Midway tonight, maybe 8ish, if anyone's interested (please refer to appropriate thread in the MP forum).  What else?  I'm currently playing Castlevania:  Dawn of Sorrow, Disciples II, Advance Wars:  Dual Strike, and I can always kill some time with Mario Kart DS.  And I'm pretty sure I have plans with my girlfriend part of the weekend.

The kids are away for the weekend so I'll actually get a chance to play.  icon_wink

Wii: I rented Red Steel again so I'll be trying to finish my saved game then some LOZ: TP.
PS2: A friend just gave me Star Ocean, so I'm going to give it some play time. Liking it quite a lot so far.
XBox: I also just traded Jade Empire Ltd for Doom 3 Ltd, so I'm going to give it whirl.
PC: If there's anytime left I'll try to get some time in on Titan Quest or SW: Empire at Large.

I'm planning on picking up Europa Universalis 3, so that will probably dominate my gaming this weekend.  I will probably mix in a little Marvel and Gears MP for variety.

Probably try and finish up Gun on the 360, may start Battle for Middle Earth II.  Play some more BF2 on the 360, finally got another medal last night so that's upped my desire to play again.  Most likely put some time in on Dungeon Siege and Pirates! on the PSP.

This evening I'm going RPG shopping to get Final Fantasy III and plan to put some time into that, along with Atelier Marie.

And maybe some Civ IV.  I'd like to watch some Mission: Impossible Season 1, but it hasn't arrived at B&N yet (so I can get the 2 for 1 deal).  Maybe tomorrow.

i was actually thinking the same thing...haven't touched Enchanted Arms since 10/1 when i reached the only part in the game where you actually have to go level grind a little before you can make the final run to the end.  i'm at the run-up to the final battle and really would like to see how it all ends...was really enjoying it until i didn't feel like grinding and got distracted by a couple other games (finished GRAW, then got into SC:DA and GoW).  eM really is a great game and i'll definitely be popping it back in soon...have to see the end of the story and check out the game on my HDTV icon_cool

other than that, i've been on a PGR3 kick recently and will probably put in more time with it this weekend, as well as the usual GoW and probably some TH:Project8.  so many good games to play and so little time...

I'll be giving the Lord of the Rings Online stress test a try or two, as well as trying to make some more progress in Ratchet & Clank and possibly a bit more of God of War if it doesn't keep annoying me.  I would most certainly be playing the Crackdown demo if I could ever get it to download, but it continues to defy me.  Curses!

Have already played a bit of Wii Sports today and got my first taste of the Wii version of Super Mokey Ball while visiting some family this evening.

Gonna have some friends over for some more Wii action Saturday night - Wii Sports and Wario Ware: Smooth Moves being the prime contenders.

Plan to make a bit more headway into Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess on Sunday and will likely be renting Marvel: Ultimate Alliance sometime this weekend to see if I like it.

been playing final fantasy 1 on the GBA(DS)at work....been kinda flying through it,all monsters are dead in two hits..even boss monsters...i think maybe it was dumbed down for the GBA,as it just seems a little too easy,not that i am complaining,i am loving it....got my airship,and now i am in the castle in the sky.or something like that...my time is 12hrs up to now

i really have to get back to kingdom hearts 2,i left it at Tron world when lost planet came out...and havent been back on since,got to pick up the thread again

Bah.  After last night's gaming session, I'm officially done with both Winning Eleven 9 and Indigo Prophecy.   Just can't get into either of them.  So I'm going to go repurchase Oblivion with the Knights of the Nine stuff, and start up again.  I can't decide if I want to keep going with my existing character (I've beaten the main storyline, but still have tons of extra stuff to do) or start fresh with a new build.

Decisions, decisions...

I've had no trouble with Ultimate RTM and the games I'm playing (most of which are recent - Company of Heroes, EU3, etc).  What're you seeing?
