New Orleans and then onto Gulf Shores, AL.

I think I'm taking Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters for the PSP

Currently, my main project is Valkryia Chronicles on Steam.

Once I finish getting my game room set up (we just moved on Saturday), I'm going to break out the ol' Dreamcast, and play Rayman 2.

@jkersey450 Oh man Vakyria Chronicles....SO good. Are you enjoying it so far?? I really want to get the PS4 remaster that just came out.

It may just be one of the greatest game discoveries that I've ever made. I've honestly never met another person that's played it, so everyone's been missing out.

My only complaint is that getting any rank higher than a D is ridiculously difficult, so you're forced to grind for more xp later on.

Valkyria Chronicles is a tough game, but mostly fair, so I didn't mind it too much. I will also say it's A LOT easier the second time through. I really wish we could get a console / PC port of Valkyria Chronicles II.

Yeah I never beat Valkryia Chronicles because it of the difficulty and I am absolutely AWFUL at tactical/strategy RPGs but what I played I absolutely loved. And yeah Moho that would be awesome to get a port of II and I would also love to see a localization of III as well. I read about the story of III and it seems really solid.

I just picked up Zelda Skyward Sword (the Saudi Arabian version...thanks Amazon...oddly enough it works and is in english) and I plan on playing it through the summer. My 7 year old son likes to watch me play through games. Last summer we got through Wind Waker HD.

I'm also trying to finish up old bounty games. I'm working on Final Fantasy IX now but want to get back to finishing Super Metroid, Valkryia Chronicles and Star Fox. Not to mention all the Mercenary games I've got assigned to me. I'd accept the Donkey Kong bounty but there's just no time to get them all.

Ive been playing Hyrule Warriors, got it launch day but even with my collection of games I cant seem to put it down. Maybe its just the mindlessness of it with all the objectives you have to do.

@WhitsEnd - I'm a few hours into Dark Savior and I'm loving it! I'm so glad I finally gave it a chance. It has some tricky platforming sections, but nothing TOO crazy so far. The battle system is really simple and plays out kinda like a 2D fighter like Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter. So far, it's been super easy, I basically hold back and mash the attack button. I'm sure it will get tougher towards the end, but we'll see. I kinda want to play the other parallels, but not sure how long each of them take. Anyways, just wanted to say you should definitely pick it up :D

I'm currently playing Escape Dead Island. I'm playing through it and am having a hard time understanding WHY it has gotten such terrible reviews and ratings on Steam. Albeit, I don't think I like it AS much as DI or DI: Riptide, but I am still having a blast with it!

I am contemplating moving onto Wolfenstein: The New Order next.

@Moho I never saw your post regarding Dark Savior!! Did you end up beating it? I want to find a copy even more now now that you said what you did haha. My father-in-law has a copy and I played it for like 5 minutes and was loving it.

I'm currently have tunnel vision on Alundra! I'm absolutely in love with this game (view my Stack to read more of my thoughts) and I plan on completionating this title as quickly as possible. It seems like its about a 40-hour or so adventure, which is already flying by (currently logged at 14 hours after only a few days).

Such an exciting plot full of many twists and turns! The action has been keeping me on my toes the entire time!

@AX3LZ3R07 every time I see you talk about Alundra it makes me want to go back and play it again SO bad!!

I am currently playing through Zero Time Dilemma, the third and supposedly final installment of the zero escape series...unfortunately I haven't been able to play it like I normally would, so I haven't really had a chance to get REALLY sucked in yet.

I haven't played Age of Mythology all that much but I lost two weeks of my life to Age of Empires 2 a few months back. YO stay so busy in that game that hours go by without one even noticing.

I've never heard of this series at all surprisingly. What's it like?

AX3L they are puzzle/visual novels. The first one was on the Nintendo DS and the last two have been on the 3DS and PSVITA. They seriously have one of the best stories I have experienced in any medium (book/tv/movie/game). The third game, Zero Time Dilemma, was actually very close to never getting released so I am so thankful to see how the story ends!!

Sounds exciting, I haven't gotten through too many of those types, although I want to explore more in the genre. The last Visual Novel I finished was Narcissu 1st & 2nd (it's free on Steam, I would definitely recommend it), and I was very moved by it's story line and presentation. I can see that opening a lot of Visual Novel doors for me. Considering I own both handhelds, I think I may consider giving them a try if I ever come across them.

Right now I am currently playing through Uncharted 4 A Thief's End. I've beaten the game already so now I'm just trying to get the platinum trophy.
I'm also playing a game I got for the PS2 called Crimson Tears. It's a pretty fun beat em up with randomly generated levels. It's also really tough. I was surprised by the difficulty because I wasn't expecting it to be this tough. I've learned that I'm gonna have to grind a little bit to level up my characters some more.

Wolfenstein: The New Order

Has anybody played this and/or Wolfenstein: The Old Blood?

I'm having mixed feelings about The New Order. It's a great game with awesome visuals. I love the added touch of stealth added as part of all the action.

My only qualm so far with the game is the story. I'm glad there is a story but man, it feels like it's TOO much for this type of game. I'm hoping as I continue to play that I'll enjoy it more.

Diablo 3, PS4. Been playing since the original PS3 release but I recently managed to nerf my main character and need to rework him. Got disheartened, so I took a break and started...

Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. just started, haven't finished the intro part yet.

Also want to get back to Xenoblade Chronicles X on the Wii U, which seems like something I'll really like.

Alas, I have to make dinner first.
