Tried to start x3 plenty of times but lost interest
kind of a shame

Hyeah~, I don't blame ya... The X universe is a mile wide and a mile deep; and Litcube's and Mayhem augment that by a factor of ten. In the end, I've settled on accomodating two popular FPS games: Rainbow Six: Siege when I'm feeling competitive; and Battlefield 4 when I just wanna chill out, blow stuff up, and generally be a total badass.

I was also considering Squad earlier, buut~... That game seems like a tremendous time commitment and the optimization is apparently abysmal in places. Hard pass, I'm afraid.

I finally got Skyrim on my PC after all these years. Time to mod the shid out of it!

Haah, modded Skyrim is honestly the best. I think you'll love it, hun If you're looking for a personal recommendation, I'd deffo check out the "Become High King of Skyrim" mod if you haven't already.

As for myself, I'm actually fixing to play The Sims 3. I figure the game's mature enough, and I've gotten a much deeper understanding of interpersonal relations since I last touched the franchise. I really can't wait to sink my teeth, throw all sorts of awful situations at my Sims and see how they deal with them. If they're anything like their creator, likely quite poorly. ^_^'

Interesting, I'll go ahead and download it :)

Sims 3 seems to be the best out of the series imo. If only the graphics were still good qq

I really must stop hopping from game-to-game so much. Over the past couple days I've installed The Sims 3, X3: Albion Prelude, Supreme Commander, and I was just thinking about buying Capitalism 2 when I stopped myself. I just wanna run an empire, dammit. >_<

I have to finish the rest of whatever is left of some of my PS2 games before it will give itself out, same thing for the 360 except the Minecraft one because it keeps getting updates and won't run out of updates (especially the now terrifying night-only flying phantom and hidden insomnia penalty).

Right now, the last several of them I yet to complete like in ages is the following for the PS2 and XBOX 360:

Spoiler

ATV Offroad Fury 2: (Passed some tournaments, unlocked the four training vehicles, beaten most of the side challenges. Even had some fun being watched as I'm magnetically pulled back skyhigh along with the rider into the playable area in practice mode for going too far after climbing a plateau, that was many years ago.)
Battlestations Midway: (Getting stuck on one particular mission trying to sink a Kuma-class destroyer at the very first instance, usually my carriers are already done for right after she goes down, probably because I intentionally increase the difficulty in an effort to get gold medal for a campaign-related achievement with all gold medals)
Battlestations Pacific: (Only on the last mission for Japan side is where my tactics can't go that far in handling every single unit, I'm usually done for by the first wave's direct engagement, and on U.S. side only went through first few missions)
Birds of Steel: (Completed the U.S. campaign and now trying to undertake the Japan side, only done the first major operation stage so far, completed all side challenges on all nations)
Blur: (Can't get through that one rival who is very aggressive but gives me more Shunt power when defeated, attempting for gold on some tougher missions that I missed.)
Burnout Paradise: (I have both versions, one for the 360 and the Remastered one, they're both the same thing, only difference is that of the graphics' improvement and frame rate and the XBOX ONE X already gave me all the necessary updates it needs for free. Already done the original version, and now trying to do the same on the Remastered, just never got the Elite license on neither.)
Dragon's Dogma: (Only made it to the dragon's perch stage but chose the first alternate ending due to poor character health and going solo, will try another go. Died a few times mostly from devastating enemy attacks, and at least once from a vertical takedown sword move.)
Dungeon Siege III: (Barely passed the introductory mission as Lucas, almost died from being careless trying to figure out the controls.)
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Just need to get to the Imperial City and speak to Martin, but I ended up running around the province like crazy and build up Athletics instead)
Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles DLC (Never played it yet)
Fairytale Fights: (I HAVE to beat one freaking chapter the whole way without skipping or quitting and there's no pause menu when in town. It even hates the way I altered brightness to a higher setting thinking that it changes the game world's time of day and not long after that it somehow already fried my other 360 console because of that. This time I hope not to set it too high. So far I haven't even beaten the first chapter or gotten past some difficult to reach obstacles. As for the 360 console, this will be my fifth and final one.)
Forza Horizon 2: (Game is already completed and is tied to my account, only thing that needs done is all diversions completed for mastery)
GTA IV: (Beaten the game once on Revenge Ending but a close fail to get a <30 hours run achievement, going for the Deal ending on second go and perhaps trying to get all stranger characters and pigeons)
GTA IV TLAD: (Never played it yet)
GTA IV TBoGT: (Never played it yet)
GTA Liberty City Stories: (Farthest reached so far was Staunton Island, just past the mayor election thwarting mission.)
GTA III: (I remembered this game from many years ago, I played it on PC but barely remembered how far I went, but this time I have it on the PS2, just trying to be strategic in free-roaming before undertaking the Yakuza mission chain. Already died numerous times from erratic miscalculation of physics and a few times from gunshots at point blank range.)
GTA Vice City: (Beaten it already once but died a couple of times from touching water and gunshots, never reached 100%)
GTA Vice City Stories (Beaten it already once but died a couple of times from being shot and physics miscalculation on motorbike, once from running out of stamina where he drowns all the way to the seabed on the spot before coming back up, very close to 100% after so many side missions, more than its original counterpart. I just hated the constant 24/7 escalation part on the whole territorial war feature, even have to run back one turf of my own after the other shortly after loading.)
Import Tuner Challenge: (I just need to beat the last few major racers before meeting up with Speed King. My starter car as a Nissan did its best with over 100 wins on the last playthrough, and some of my free-roaming runs ended with well over 20 victories in one sitting with careful management of oil and water pressure. Rarely but unintentionally I fishtailed but can still pull off key wins. I now have my own strategy paper on how to meet all the wanderers.)
Madden NFL '08: (Only played a few exhibition matches, never started a season, and passed a few challenges years back, never played it again afterwards since.)
Need for Speed: ProStreet (Farthest reached is exactly the same as from first attempt, React Team Sessions arc (Currently trying to perfect my drifts, physics with drifting in that game is a bit wonky, that's when nitro comes in but have to use it wisely because it can't be refilled.)
Need for Speed Underground: (Unfortunately even after beating the game like twice already, I never get the chance to get 100% completion on all the magazine covers and it tends to force me to start all over again on a different save file, which I wouldn't.)
NFL Blitz 2003: (Only played exhibition matches back then, never started a season, but watched the first few available short movies just to pass the time.)
Ridge Racer Unbounded: (Game used to freeze on me in earlier playthroughs years back at random but this time it shouldn't, already beaten game once and unlocked all editor content, just have to gold all stars in events that given me a harder time)
Saints Row Original: (Only beaten the first few missions, when it rains, it will thunder like crazy, whereas in 2 it gives you plenty of warning before it actually rains such as the sky changing.)
Saints Row 2: (Unlocked the ability to not die from falling and just reached the Ultor Arc)
Saints Row 3: (Beaten the game already once but didn't get to see the STAG ending, game allows me to replay final mission so I can take the other route, didn't get to see other Act ending scenes but will give another go.)
Saints Row 4: (Only just passed the introductory missions and just trying to get used to new features and gameplay modes. The height barrier is an annoying obstacle when in flight and can't regenerate health when at two bars of Zin Notoriety.)
Saints Row Gat Out of Hell DLC: (Only just passed the introductory missions, ditto.)
Soul Calibur II (Beaten Weapon Master twice already as required, have yet to unlock all extra stages and needed to save lots of Gold for all remainder weapons, then that's about it)
Soul Calibur III (World Championship around start of second half but got beaten badly around first or second match with random AI setting as Very Hard or higher, Chronicles of the Sword Mode barely through the snow level with Halteese getting flanked by Dalkia's forces long before I even get to them even with cavalry, uggh, Story Mode tried to beat Olcadan naturally but to no avail, not even close to whittling down a third of his HP, but have unlocked him in other normal ways instead, and Training only unlocked a few character's purple skin weapons that just serves as completion of their selection and can be used in tournaments)
Star Wars Battlefront II (Already beaten all four Galactic Campaigns and survived all of them on the highest difficulty in one life, some battles put me in one vs. x enemies remaining situations)
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Sadly the disc when it arrived some time ago was a bit scratched and afraid that it might crack itself, I barely even got past the introductory mission and have no idea how to figure the new controls, almost certainly not to give it a go)
WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2005: (Possibly beaten the campaign once as Triple H, have yet to fulfill any conditions to unlock certain exhibition matches to play because I was a lame dummy back then on figuring that out. I even fulfilled a few short custom championships I made myself just to pass the time.)
X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse (Farthest reached is around the platform levels on Act 4 and completed some challenges along the way, died a few times but even more so on custom team-based challenges where I pit any unlocked character from the story against the other side with a limited duration and only have one life for your whole side.)

Apart from my to-do list on all these wonderful games, Soul Calibur III is where I still have plenty of time to enjoy it and get everything finished.

I'm rather fond of this custom background I found for a certain VN. It's like she's telling me, "Come on. You know you wanna."

I've always found SR:IV to be the weakest of the Saints Row trilogy ( Yes, it started with 2. Don't @ me. ). Keeping Steelport with no major additions is a cop-out, always-nighttime is annoying, and crucially, the addition of superpowers completely throws off the balance of the game. Like, why even bother with vehicles when you can make like The Flash on your own two feet?

NFS ProStreet... I see little bro playing that every couple days. Looks good, but the Forza Horizon series took the setting and ran with it. Burnout: Paradise is pretty good, though! And I hear it works great on Linux, too! ^^

As for BSM... that game can be punishingly difficult, especially without any of the convenience features offered in the sequel. If there's anyone among us who can prevail however, it's you. Ganbatte, Teitoku. <3
