Guitar Hero World Tour was beaten in solo guitar career on Hard.
I had already beaten Insector X before, but this time I managed to do it without continuing.
Beat this for the second time. I played through Symphony of the Night again recently as well. Still need to beat the NES Castlevanias and Dracula X...
DARIUS II. Cool shmup, will play it again!
Finally got around to beating RE5 (on "normal.") I hadn't anticipated what a ammo drain the last chapter was going to be, so I was pretty dry by the time I got to the last stage of the looooooooooooong final boss fight. It took me a couple weeks to muster up the motivation to fall back to a previous chapter to build up my arsenal.
I just finished Metal Gear Solid 4. It was pretty good, but I have to say that the cutscenes were very long, and because of that I wonder if Hideo Kojima forgot he was directing a game and not a movie at some points. But at least the game tied up a lot of loose ends.
I beat Sonic Adventure, finally. Even those idiotic, borderline unplayable Big the Cat stages.
Yes, try to compete with the in-game fishing of Ocarina of Time with a setup that doesn't even come close to being as fun, with a character that NO ONE likes. Well, no one but those jackasses at Bioware.
I am amazed by a general inability of the plot to stay coherent. Events and dialog actually vary depending on who you play as. But I guess each character just tells their own version of the events(this explains why Knuckles is a tough guy in his version, but a pushover loser with a brain the size of a peanut in everyone else's story). Beat all the characters and you get a final mission, which is nothing but a generally simple boss fight.
Nothing terribly difficult as far as games go, to be honest.
I also beat Beyond Good & Evil. Great game, pity it sold poorly. The sequel has officially been announced, but Ubisoft wants to dumb it down for "casual gamers". In other words, watering down a great game to punish those of us who DID buy the game, hoping people who are addicted to Peggle will buy the sequel if they make it easy enough.
I completed Sonic and the Secret Rings today. Once you memorise the final boss' rhythm it's mustard, but until that point I was about ready to chew on the controller. If you could control Sonic with the more traditional analogue stick I could have breezed through the game
What a strange ending, though. Probably more time went into making the lush, full level environments so you can go through them again and again, then when it came to making the final story everyone went and took the afternoon off.
runblebee and Tomoya Ohtani did a brilliant job making Arabian Sonic music, too - the sitars and let the speed MEND IT MEND IT MEND IT is very, very catchy
 Haha, also gotten the 'Legend' achievement in OutRun Online Arcade. Five wins in a row
Finally beat Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords last night.
I've been playing this game for weeks and had a genuine love/hate relationship with it all the way to the end. For a puzzle/RPG hybrid, it certainly was weighted more on the RPG end of the spectrum (which is not really my cup of tea). I was determined not let it become one of those "Eh, I'll come back to it" games, though.
Now that I'm finally done with it, however, I just might end up picking it up again in the future.
Battle Mania 2 / Trouble Shooter Vintage (English translation) on Nomad today
Death To MP3, :3
Mida sa loed ? Nagunii aru ei saa "Gnirts test is a shit" New and growing website of total jawusumness !
I've already beaten the 360 version twice, but it's so good and was so cheap that I had to go through it again. I doubt I'll get all the trophies, but I might play the DLC. I just can't wait to play the sequel.
Beaten with all Kilroys and recon sites found. Great game, even though the story was meh. I loved the cover system and the squads, but I doubt I'll ever go back to it.
Dead Space is on the 'beaten' list - what an utterly creepy, intelligent game. I'm not normally a fan of survival horror, but the game's sheer atmosphere sucked me in completely.
 As for the prequel film, Downfall? Don't bother, I rented it from the Xbox Marketplace. It's the game, as written by a thirteen-year-old Metallica fan who'd guessed what the game was about from Wikipedia - nothing from the audiologs within the game is mentioned (hell, one of the major characters in the game is missing), the animation is ropey and the voice acting is awful in parts.
DoDonpachi - Sega Saturn
I can almost 1 credit the whole thing on Saturn mode until the final, final boss, then I just start chuckin' virtual quarters at it. My goal was to 1 credit the whole thing but that boss, really fucks with my head
