    Yeah, my save shows 7 hours 28 minutes of gameplay right before the last boss. It's not that long, but it's enjoyable.

    What did you go up to on the speed tun. Just the main story?
    Did you use the games clock as your timer?
    Thinking of doing a speed run.

    I ended it at the first time against the E4. I used the in-game clock to time myself. (My final time was the one displayed at the induction into Hall of Fame.) My advice is, is that in a speed run, LT. Surge's gym can be a HUGE time-waster (switch puzzle), when trying to go as fast as you can.

    Finally opened up high rank village quests. Dang, that Purple Ludroth has a huge amount of health! (I was wearing Rathalos low rank armour, and had the Djinn+ sword and shield combo.) It was brutal. I kept getting poisoned and kept getting my ass handed to me. (I was also carrying a whole bunch of herbal medicines and antidotes.)

    Been playing some Yoshi Topsy Turvy on my GB Micro lately. I actually like the game quite a bit, I don't believe it's as bad as everyone says

    Does that game actually work on a micro and SP? I thought it only worked with a top cartridge loader because of the tilt

    Started Persona for PSP yesterday, because I finished Persona 4 Golden a few weeks ago.
    I can understand why the critic scores are bad. Outdated PS1 graphics, not a lot of details on the main characters, they are just there and have no background story.
    I also don't think the encounter rate is absurdly high like they say it is. It's about the same as in pokémon games I think.
    Controls require some getting used to and there is no explanation at all how to get the spell cards.
    But overal I have to say I quite enjoy the game.

    I know for a fact that it worked on my DS Phat when I had one.

    Cool! Maybe I'll check it out, then. Have always wanted to, but didn't want to play on the original GBA's unlit screen.

    This isn't what I accomplished today, but rather what I accomplished just recently.

    I actually finished Far Cry 3 and E.X. Troopers.

    This is a big achievement for me, and a satisfying one at that, because I hadn't completed a single game in years. I've been on somewhat of a gaming drought these past years. It wasn't so much the games, but the drive or motivation that kept me from actually finishing what I started. Don't get me wrong, I did play games, but that's all I ever really did. I wanted something more. I guess I slowly started growing out of games and even lost a lot of interest in them fairly quickly, but when I started Far Cry 3, it felt different. For the first time in years I actually felt eager to play a game, and it was a really satisfying feeling.

    My real accomplishment, though, came when I completed E.X. Troopers. I wondered if my experience with Far Cry 3 was just some fluke, but after completing E.X. Troopers, I knew I was back. It felt great. I put in about 25 hours into E.X. Troopers in about a week, and that's really unheard of for me. I was honestly surprised when I looked at the rising playtime every time it automatically saved between missions. And I'm not done with the game, either. I'm actually looking forward to replaying every single mission to complete the challenge rules and just complete everything the game has to offer. I already started, actually. I'm now over 28 hours into E.X. Troopers and with many more in sight.

    It wasn't just completing these games that was satisfying for me, but rather the real sense of accomplishment I got from doing so. I feel like I found something that I lost years ago. Now I'm looking at my copy of Kid Icarus that I started like a year ago with renewed eagerness.

    Just reading this post here got me really excited because I had an experience like that sometime just this past fall. As a fellow gamer, I truly congratulate you. Keep it up!

    It sure does! Actually when you first turn on the game, it presents with the options below in the picture. The Micro isn't one of the options on it, but if you select the SP/DS option, then it works just fine. The tilt sensor is actually located on the motherboard of the game.

    Played Mass Effect (the trilogy version, on PS3). I'd never played the game before, and I'm mostly doing it because a friend of mine loves the series, and I like to support him. :P Honestly, I played yesterday, and I felt like I was trudging, but after the first mission, the story really starts to pick up and keep me engaged, even when the gameplay is just "perform fetch quest A, with sub-fetch quests A, B, C, and D!"
