I believe he was referring to the difficulty of FFV.

Well I finished Fahrenheit, pretty nice story except for that bit that it jumps about a month forward suddenly. I understood it's because of technical issues, but still.
It would be nice to know more about characters that suddenly appeared after that jump, and what exactly happened after the end(s).

Anyway nice game/movie except for the annoying camera at times and the silly Simon Says and left-right bits.

Gotten a bit into Trauma Center and Starfox Command on DS as I need a bit of change from Animal Crossing. TC is pretty fun, reminds me of good ol' Life & Death for PC; and equally frustrating at times too when you can't remember what to do during a certain procedure Starfox Command is great fun as well, though the touchscreen controls aren't always as responsive as I'd want. But I love the fact that you can have the game use your voice for the inaudible babbling the characters produce

Oh yes, and I've gotten started on Sam & Max Culture Shock too. Fecking funny, and the puzzles are not too hard but not all that logical either.

AND I've finished LBA1, albeit not without difficulty. Effing bulldozers At least now I can finally get on with LBA2

I still need to finish that. It's really entertaining for a freeware game.

I didn't know Starfox was out yet? Anyway, Trauma Center is great, although those last few unlockable levels after you finished the game are way too hard. It's fun to pick up once in a while to play a quick game. Also great you can choose level after finishing it. Also I'm glad you remember Life & Death. When I was young I never knew how it worked. I always ended up cutting my patients to death. I stopped playing Animal Crossing a long time ago. It's nice for a little while but I can't be bothered doing the same things every day.

cavestory is an excellent game, the number of ways the game plays out depending on how you play is amazing, one of my top ten favourite games of all time, if any of you havent played it, do it now.

Ive been playing seiken densetsu 3 all day today, Ive really been wanting to play it for the last few weeks and get obsessed with the game, its such an amazingly beautiful game and I really enjoy exploring games like these, so much life is put into this game. combat is great fun also, very satisfying to slash an enemy with the sword and switch to another character and finish them off !

Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland. Easy as feck but that doesn't make it any less fun.

Contrariwise, Trauma Center is hard and frustrating.

call of duty 3 is great! It's not very different from call of duty 2 but there are some cool new stuff, like riding the car, rowing a boat etc. Wonderful.

Playing Shadowgrounds, a top-down shooter that thinks it's Doom 3.
I'm only in level 4 and already I'm getting bored.
Top-down shooters should be fast and noisy, this one's trying to use Doom 3's horror tricks but doesn't do it too well. So you just walk around in the dark with your flashlight and hope to kill something on the way.
The weapons are pretty nice though with various upgrade options. Too bad that I don't find most weapons too convenient to use due to the angle of the game and the nature of the enemies.
Credits to the graphics. Although the people look a bit weird, the rest simply looks great especially with the dynamic lights.

It doesen't think it's doom silly .
It was never intended after doom, it's based on the old hit Alien Breed and Tower Assault, wich where loosly based on Alien. The game gets a bit boring tough, but maybe it's just my view, couse it loaded so long on my machine that It made me too irritated to wait for, after all it's no big deal, jsut a simple shooter for fun.

And right now I'm still beating Minish Cap .

It quite seems like Doom.
Moving around with a flashlight, scare tricks, PDAs lying around, etc.

I never figured out why if I'm together with this military woman, I'm the one that goes on the dangerous missions and she hangs out in safety till I solve the problem.

Been playing some more LBA2. Gotten off Zeelich for the first time, now I'm in the baggage claim.

I'd forgotten how awesome the music in this game was by the way.

Also I need to continue playing RE1.

A cool interview with Ragnar (Dreamfall/The Longest Journey creator).

He says he hopes the gaming market will very soon move into online distribution (that part is only shown in the Hebrew version of that article for some reason ).

He's a fan of Lost!
I did feel some "Lost" in Dreamfall, so I'm not surprised.

Finished the battle against King Dedededededededededede in Kirby Nightmare In Dreamland, now all that's left is the battle against Nightmare.

Also, FUCK YOU, Trauma Center! I just can't get past the stage with those damn aneurysms The game tends to be pretty picky about where I put my stylus.
