On the agenda: what I played, what I set aside and what I shook my fist at!
First on the list what I've just picked up. I only have a bootleg of Chu Chu Rocket(DC) and since a legit copy is entering the collection soon I figured I should give it a fair chance. Wow did this game ever kick my ass at first. It's one of those games I guess that practice makes perfect and my mind just wasn't in the right place to keep up with those damn mouse-mongering cats! But if anything it has just made me more determined to tackle this game, it was a bit frustrating at first because I really enjoy these types of addicting games, like Bust-A-Move, Puyo-Puyo Fever (yes it's the Japanese import, actually really hilarious to play because I have no idea what's going on in between gameplay and the instructions are constantly getting yelled at me, good times). Mr. Driller which is in my favorites, Lumines and all kinds of online games. These little addicting puzzle games are my crack, what I use to unwind. So I will tackle this game before it becomes the bane of my existence!
Next Phantasy Star Online: Episodes I&II(GC), the usual dealie with this game, playing on my own to keep up with my far more addicted gaming partners and playing with them when we all have time, adding up to some good teamwork and the occasional, well let's be honest often, slaughtering of me, since I'm about 10 levels behind.
The Legend Of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass(DS) put aside much to my dismay. The thing with this is that I love my DS because I can pick it up play for 20 minutes and find myself right where I left off. I'm finding that with this game I can't do that as easily, it requires a much more focused time commitment than what I have to offer it right now and if I turn it off I'm back at point a. So the 20 minutes continually takes me to the same spot. It's a really awesome game so I know I'll be coming back to it, maybe over my spring break or in the summer, but for now it has taken up its spot sitting on my shelf.
Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked(PS2) is also on the shelf, but again not forever. I bought this game because I was a fan of the show and heard that the game does some neat things. Which it does and I was having a lot of fun with it, but there's only one PS2 in the house and only one main TV, me being the considerate person I am, tries to avoid playing single player games that are going to require my other three roommates watch me play when they really aren't interested and probably just want to watch TV. Although not only bad has come of this since I'm now looking into finally getting myself a PS2 I can hook up to my own TV with the Dreamcast.
Lastly my addiction to Guitar Hero was temporarily restored when my friend's BF brought it with him when he came to visit. I spent a couple hours getting it all out of my system again and kind of shaking to say goodbye to it again... I'm thinking it is best that I don't have it or I would get nothing else done. Although the more I play Guitar Hero III(PS2) the more I want to get my hands on Rock Band...
Chu Chu Rocket: I will dominate *shakes fist*
Phantasy Star Online: addicting
Phantom Hourglass: Time commitment central
Samurai Champloo: is 'Sidetracked' (bad pun)
Guitar Hero III: addicting but leaves me dissatisfied
PS2: I WANT!
Rock Band: *drools*
