    Continue.

    I'm going to be picking up Resistance 2 and Prince of Persia soon, so yeah. Right now, I'm itching for Guitar Hero, so that's what I'll be playing.

    Still playing Persona 4.
    Once I'm through with that (I'm thinking about giving it another playthrough to 100% it) I'm going to try picking up star ocean first departure and chrono trigger to occupy my long ass bus rides to school.

    omg that sounds so cute XD For some reason, I've avoided Hello Kitty games and stuff like that. I always think they're really dumb, but that one sounds cute ::squee::

    I'm still playing the games I posted before XD <3

    Is anyone here playing Trama Center 2 Under the Knife or have you played it in the past?

    I need help beating one of the operations, as I'm having such a hard time!

    I'm back in the US and it's the first surgery for PGS. I only have five minutes to remove this person's tumors and such, but they keep reappearing. I'm working as fast as I can, but he KEEPS DYING ::zetsubou::

    I have the option to do the 'healing touch,' but I'm not sure when during the operation I should use this.

    Any tips (aside from WORK FAST :| ) are greatly appreciated!

    See, when I have trouble with a game, I find cheat codes ::gaku::

    I have NO patience, especially if I get stuck, so cheat codes help me get through the game with little to no frustration or annoyance.

    Also, thank you for the walkthrough. I do appreciate it ;)

    Naturally I get sidetracked and instead of Silent Hill 5 I'm playing Guitar Hero World Tour. *LOL*

    Thank GOD my Rockband guitar works for it! The Guitar hero one... the red and orange buttons don't work! D:

    The drumset that came with my copy had a missing lock piece, so it stands slightly wonky and lopsided.

    Just picked up Samba de Amigo for a pretty good deal, but the batteries in my controller are almost dead. </3

    I'm playing Syberia and that new Prince of Persia on DS and they both suck so hard it's sad. Why another PoP reboot?

    sands of time had almost infinite replay value to me
    because i am a simpleton

    On the other hand, the Chrono Trigger port has been fun, and I'm playing the hell out of the GBA version of Street Fighter Alpha 3.

    Hell yeah, Chrono Trigger. :D

    My little brother got me that and Order of Ecclesia for Christmas so I've been rocking both of those, lately.

    I liked the new Prince of Persia on PS3, though. That was sweet.

    I'm currently playing Mario Kart Wii. It's been much easier now that I'm using the nunchuck to steer instead of just the remote.

    Also kinda sorta started playing the new Prince of Persia for the 360.

    And I'm still slogging my way through FFXII.

    I heard there was issues with the drums, my brother had the exact same problem.

    I actually didn't get any accessories with it, the guitar I was using was the one from Guitar hero 3. I got the full set of Rock band so I don't really want to drown in peripherals. *lol* thankfully the mic also works for it so at least my friend who is the microphone hog can use it. ;p

    I'm not sure about trauma center 2 but in 1 they had green medicine which you could inject in which would prolong the life thing. So whenever the number goes down, inject it in.

    I didn't know that at first and I kept dying as well ::angel::

    Order of Ecclesia just might be my favorite Castlevania. I'm not that knowledgeable about the series but I've played all the Castlevanias on the GBA and DS except Circle of the Moon. Didn't like the one with the two castles, but the other ones were a lot of fun. I adore the artist, she is to Castlevania what Amano is to Final Fantasy, or Roger Dean is to Yes, or Fukaya is to Kagrra.


    EDIT: OOPS, turns out it's a different artist all together for Ecclessia! I like Kojima and all but I REALLY like this Hiroka guy too.

    Me too. I hated that anime shit they did for the last two DS games. I was so glad to have a real artist again for this one.

    I was playing n+ on my brother's psp earlier today. He doesn't have one of those memory thingamajigs, and I accidentally reset the game after getting to like, world 25. I was so mad.

    I can't speak for Syberia, but I can tell you why Prince of Persia sucks on the DS. Ubisoft, the guys who make those games, don't take Nintendo and they're consoles seriously, so when they make games for us they end up being especially tailored for very very young kids, I'm talking 5 - 8yrs. It's been a big complaint of mine for the past year and a half, but there's not much I can do about it. :\
