ISH Gaming Diary Thread
 
Every small gaming board needs a BS thread were you can drop you smaller gaming related comments. This is the thread were you post all your gaming related commentary that you want to post, but wouldn't be making a thread for. Keep your ISH buddies up with what you've been doing!

So essentially, this is the "What have you been playing lately?", "What game did you just finish?", "Guys, check out this cool/exciting/funny video", "Give me a little advice on so and so" and "Wow did you hear about X?" threads all rolled into one neat thread. :cheers:

Re: ISH Gaming Diary Thread
 
So this past week I've been rummaging through the ultra geeky visual novel Katawa Shoujo.

http://www.destructoid.com/disabled-...w-218974.phtml





The ostracized visual novel about dating disabled girls spawned out of 4chan (wow that sounds awful), which was just released a month ago after a 4+ year development period. Because of my innately geeky nature, boredom and curiosity because of it's substantial news coverage, I decided to give the title a spin. I've never played one of these visual novels before and was quite reserved coming into it, only to find that the stories are quite sophisticated and the music is pretty solid.

I liked it. If you like games such as Phoenix Wright and/or Anime you should check it out, it's totally free.

I just finished Red Dead Redemption for the 4th time. One of the best games of all time.

Now I'm just waiting for Mass Effect 3.

I'm waiting for Mass Effect 3 too.

I just played through Assassin's Creed for the first time. I have Assasin's Creed 2 and Brotherhood, and God of War 3 waiting on the shelf but I don't want to start up any story-based games before ME3. For now, I'm keeping busy with fighting games Super Street Fighter 4 AE and UMvC3.

March 6 is a crazy gaming day for me. Three games that I planned on buying all coming out on the same day. Mass Effect 3, MLB 12 and Street Fighter x Tekken.

The Katawa Shoujo demo that came out a while ago was the first VN I ever played, I remember being pleasantly surprised by the quality. After that I read Saya no Uta and Yume Miru Kusuri, and that's about all the VN's I've read. Those two are really good though, if you're interested in another VN you should give those 2 a shot. I think Saya no Uta only took 3-4 hours to finish completely.

Currently I'm working through Lost Odyssey. I remember seeing a friend playing it years ago and thought it looked interesting, never did get it though. Finally picked it up in gamestop a few months ago, and started playing it a couple weeks ago. Really liking it so far, has a really good story.

Currently working through Career mode on UFC Undisputed 3, with small doses of MW3.

Currently in Welterweight and working towards getting a title shot. My guy is a stand-up specialist, and I look to finish fights as early as possible. I wouldn't call my ground game a glaring weakness, and I can hold my own against most fighters on the canvas, but I love raining punches on my opponent. Not one of my fights has gone the distance so far, and I'm 10-1. :banana:

Eh sounds about right. I didn't care too much for the last two tales.

I might look one of those up actually, since I sort of want to refrain from buying a new game until I get my hands on SSX or ME3.

So psyched for Max Payne 3, the game footage look insane! You can do 360 spins while shooting from prone position for god sakes.

Btw, GOW 3 and RDR are two game you just cannot miss.
