At last another 3 day weekend is here.  While typically these don't bode well for my gaming hours as I tend to do lots of work on the house, hopefully you'll be more successful at securing some:

PS2:

Killer 7: Continues to hold my attention and rivet me to it's beautiful craziness
Dragon Warrior VIII: Hopefully I'll get some time with this. It has been a while

DSL:

Phoenix Wright: I'm, I would guess, about 2/3 through the final case, so hopefully I'll close it out
Mario and Luigi: PiT: Again, I'd guess I'm about 9/10 through it so hopefully this one will get done too

Xbox:

I've notice the absolute neglect my one time favorite console has fallen into since the PS2 and DSL arrivals at my house in March and June respectively.  If I can muster the will I might try out a little Half-Life 2. But Probably not.

Let's see...

PC - My renewed interest in Guild Wars will take priority here with a bit of the Dark Crusade Demo thrown in I'm sure.

360 - Continue my run at #1 as the UNLV Runnin' Rebels in College Hoops 2k6 and if Devil and I can hook up for once, kick the crap out of him in some Fight Night.

Won't have THAT much time for gaming, but I'll be gaming with DA BOYZ on Saturday night playing NHL 2k6.  Beside that, some Saints Row, Madden, and continuing Shadow of the Colossus on hard mode.

Xenosaga 3 will be getting most of my love.  I did cave and pick up Starfox Command but I'm not sure I'll actually devote any time to it this weekend between XS3, a novel I'm reading, and a few series I want to catch a couple of episodes for.

Enchanted Arms, Sword of the Stars, Graw/Chromehounds if people are on when I look.  Probably try and finish up N3 as well.  Maybe go back to Dead Rising.  Possibly go visit Disgaea 2 and watch or play a bit of it.

I may not have much time for gaming this weekend, but if I pick up Disgaea 2 or Enchanted Arms I'll sneak in some time with those.

360:  Chromehounds, Dead Rising, Fight Night (still haven't gotten very far -- I keep getting distracted by other stuff).

PC:  Flight Sim 2004  (renewed interest lately), also itching to see what all the fuss is about regarding Dwarf Fortress

DS:  just started Battles of Prince of Persia, so that'll see some gaming time.

Today is reserved for college football, but I'll probably be putting some significant time into Disgaea 2 and Summon Night after the Utah-UCLA game tonight.  I'd also love to play some Titan Quest that I got in a trade yesterday, but my computer still isn't working.  frown

Funninly enough, after purchasing a 360 a couple months ago I am now going back and playing some original XBox games that I missed.  I found a used copy of Conker last weekend and picked up Forza on clearance today (even though I still have tons of play left in PGR3...I think it's a disease).

Didn't game as much as I wanted :/  Downgrading my PSP took a HEALTHY chunk of my night, so not all was lost.

I felt like I'm going to neglect the hell out of Disgaea 2 because of Okami coming out, but so it goes.

I ended up kind of stuck on Fight Night.  Which is sad because I've only unlocked the first achievement.  I've been auto-training, which I think is a big part of my problem since it only gives you a fraction of your potential gains.

So I ended up back on Oblivion.  Progressed a little further on the main quest line and got another rank up in the Mage's Guild.  Plus a sampling of random quests along the way.

FS2004 got a bunch more time, mainly in the evening.  I like how I can finish up and climb into bed and not have my adrenaline all pumping.  I keep downloading add-ons (both free and payware), and it keeps getting better and better.

And I finally got going with Dwarf Fortress.  I needed a detailed walkthrough to help me understand the interface, and the Penny Arcade thread linked in the wiki was just the ticket.  I just lost my fortress to an invading group of lizardmen, but I was ready to restart anyway now that I have a better idea of how things work.

It's been a good weekend for gaming.

Lol, Metal! Like we didnt have enough to do in ffxi, they had to add an intensive raising schedule to own your own chocobo!  Just go with Basic Care plans and Rest when needed. and remember I am your local source for baby choco food, lol!  Been growing ingredients and cooking food for several days now... so I can save your baby, I'm sure!   icon_wink
Besides, when little Metal II is on the Basic Care Plan, you can be playing all those other games you mentioned! Just don't forget to go to work, you have to pay the electric and FFXI bills! Oh, and cable...  icon_twisted

Did a lot of farming in Titan Quest when the game chose to work and now am tricked out with a ton of blue equipment as I close in on level 40 in Epic. I'm such a loot whore.

Started up Gun on my Xbox and I have to say it's not too shabby. For whatever reason though the opening cinematics lock up on me and don't paly all the way through. The in-game cinematics though are just fine. Has anyone experienced this?
