I am personally also looking forward to White Knight Chronicles, but it seems as though a US release date is still a ways off. I've also thought about playing Oblivion again, but having put over 200 hours into it, I've pretty much exhausted the (PS3) content twice over.

For now, I'm still playing FFXI.


From Wiki.

Quote:
White Knight Chronicles received 29/40 from Famitsu with the reviewers highlighting the online mode as being the source of their main gripes. Despite the lukewarm review, the game sold well; around 130,000 copies on its first day and around 207,000 on its first week in Japan.[3] As of August 8, 2009, it has sold 350,000 copies in Japan.[4]


Perhaps the delay in American release is that they are working the online kinks out, giving the rest of us a more polished product. I hope this is the case, because White Knight Chronicles looks interesting. If you liked Oblivion, have you tried Fallout 3? The only difference is that you get guns, and have V.A.T.S. With all of the DLC's I put around 300 hours into it.

I'm currently playing LoTRO. But I am so tempted to start my FFXI account up again. I really miss it, but I'm not sure what it would be like playing FFXI on my laptop with no number pad to control my character. Bleh.

I am also playing Final Fantasy Dissidia on my PSP and some iPhone games I've had for a while.

I did rent Fallout 3, and played it for about an hour. I just couldn't get into it. I like RPGs, and I like FPS, but the combination just didn't work for me. I had the same reaction to FFVII: Dirge of Cerberus. In the end, Fallout 3 was too much like Oblivion for me to treat it like a separate game. I'm tempted to give it another shot, but I think I will just stick with FFXI until FFXIII comes out.

I'm also hopeful for a PSP for Christmas so I can play through Crisis Core and Dissidia. I got to play Crisis Core on a co-worker's PSP, but I felt obliged to play through it as quickly as possible and probably missed quite a bit.

Edit to reply to above post:

You don't need a number pad for FFXI; in fact, you're better off not using it. I played FFXI for the first two years exclusively on a laptop using Compact Keyboard settings. I still use that setting on my desktop, and I'm pretty sure most other players do also. Control your character using W, A, S, D, camera with the arrow keys, and you're good to go.

I also tried LoTRO last year for about a month. I was a very good looking game, but the whole time I was playing I was pining for FFXI, so I just went back to FFXI.

I am still Playing FFXI I did take 8 months off and wasted a ton of money on various mmorpgs a PS3 and some 360 games. And to be honest there just not the same. The only thing that's going to cure my FFXI addiction is FFXIV . So I am sticking out FFXI no matter how bad it gets over the next year.

Currently playing Champions Online, which is a lot of fun and a good filler. I've also reconnected my PS2 to try and play through FFX through FFXII when I don't feel like loggin' on to an MMO or want to stay upstairs with the Mrs. (who is also waiting for FFXIV).

I was hoping Guild Wars 2 would release sometime between, but it looks like it's release date is currently further out than FFXIV (although both are unannounced at this time). I have no interest in Aion, either...so I'll just plug away with CO and console games until FFXIV releases. I still have a lot of achievements to unlock on my 360 games, too.


Is Champions Online a lot like City of Heroes? Didn't really like CoH that much. I want to try CO but $65 just to try it is a bit harsh.

I have to agree with you about Dirge of Cerberus. It was a very mediocre title, in my opinion.

I'm not really sure what I'm to do in the meantime...it seems every game I try to play I end up hating. Right now I'm playing eve...but who knows how long that will last? I might play some old FFs for a bit...and if lucasarts ever manages to respond to my email I might be able to play kotor (which I regret downloading from steam last week since I have yet to even manage opening it).

I did pick PSO back up and registered on the private server, so if SE pulls the plug on XI then I think I'll go back to PSO. I forgot just how fun that game really is.


Do you play on the schthack (spelling?) private server? I played on there for a while, i'm just disappointed I can't get my DC online very well, I tried setting up a PC-DC server but I lose connection after about 10 mins and the latency is HORRID. I can play on my laptop but I would much prefer to do it on my DC just like the old days.

As far as the OP's question goes, oh so much I need to finish but so little time. Currently still playing FFXI, also have been working on a fan tranlated version of Mother 3 (earthbound) for the GBA, (play on DS through an R4), katamari damacry, mega man collection. Down the road I want to start over and finally finish FFXII, wild arms 3, and skies of arcadia (DC). Alot to do but we'll see how far I get in it.

Sacred 2 was fairly bad. I wouldnt recommend it. Good for a few hours, then a few more if you've got a friend to play with but then it goes down hill... Quick.

I'm playing DDO right now(it just became F2P), and I've already preordered Aion (Woohoo head-start). That and then dragon age when it comes out is probably going to be all do aside from work until 13 and 14.

edit: Oh yeah my ps2 emulator can keep me busy in the cold months of alone time :(

Prototype is good
Bioshock is fun
Valkyria Chronicles is amazing. I highly recommend it to any SRPG fan. One of the best games I've played in years
I might get Infamous
Just got Fallout 3 but havn't played it yet
Killzone 2 single player was fun but I personally didn't like the online play. CoD4/5 online is way better.
Looking forward to Modern Warfare 2
FFXIII. I hope it doesn't continue SE's current trend of dissapointment. It looks really good so far though.
Haze might be ok
In the middle of another playthrough of FFV now
Suikoden is another great RPG series (well... the first 2 were good anyways) I might play again.

I have plenty to do untill XIV releases :p

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will take up my time until Modern Warfare 2. And then in the spring Diablo III. I have high hopes for FFIV. God, I hope to see an 8 or a 9... a 9.5? 10? hah, yea, I'm hoping for a 10/10 in the official reviews. Too much to ask?

I couldn't get in to Oblivion. The level syncing makes it so you don't feel like you're actually ever progressing on equipment. Oh you just got a glass longsword? Oh every single **** enemy drops that now, big woop. No real advancement, not worth doing anything. I hate that part, what a bad idea. I got to about level 20 and just stopped playing in the middle of everything. The environment looks great, the immersion detail was wonderful, the mechanics are great except that one thing just plain killed the game dead for me. Can't live with it, sorry.

So I have to ask, does Fallout 3 use the same terribad idea?

For those with a PS3 looking to fill their pre XIV days, a real gem (IMHO) released in NA last week by the name of Demon's Souls. It's an unforgiving game to be sure (though the challenge of this game is not something a hardened XI vet would cower from), but the level design is wonderful and the fighting interface is top notch. Also, there are an array of gear goals to keep you moving forward and 712 possible levels of character advancement.

If this game catches on with you the way it has with me, it might very well be the last game you'll need til XIV ships... and we all stop buying games altogether :P

I think Demon Soul's action/fighting is what ffxiv should inspire to be like. Just imagine a character from that game in an open world like ffxi. Would be great!

To stay on topic. Has everyone forgotten about MagnaCarta 2 or Borderlands? Haven't played them yet. Should I pass on these?

I imported Demon's Souls in May, and well, it would be a serious GOTY contender if it wasn't for the current generation of gamers craving for easy and casual games. This game is very hard. If you somehow are like me, that enjoy killing the same monsters hoping for a rare drop item, Demon's Souls has it.

I want to thank all those for the Demon Souls info. Last week I had a stack of 360 games ready to hit Gamestop. I was thinking of getting Dragon Age with the trade ins. However I got the urge to read some reviews before I left. Well everyone was referring Demon Souls and how great a game. Everyone was also saying how difficult it was. However your Demon Soul comments have cleared the fog. My PS3 runs folding@home 24/7 cause I never play it. I bought it for FFXIV, and really no other games interested me. Now that will change.

Friday I'm getting Demon Souls!

PSP -

So yeah, I'm gonna be pretty occupied til FFXIV comes out.

And from the games I have to finish, I'm starting out with the least fun (Shining Tears) and working my way up, all the while rocking to my Corinne Bailey Rae songs.

I'm just curious as to what you guys plan on playing between now and FFXIV's launch. I stopped playing FFXI almost three months ago after playing for four years straight. It's hard to cope, I'm so used to playing and having in-game friends to talk to. I feel like I need FFXIV and now, but unfortunately that's not going to happen. So I'm waiting for Gran Turismo 5, hoping that game will last until FFXIII and then hoping FFXIII will last until FFXIV. That's the plan, but I'm looking for more ideas.


Will play FFXI and probably still play when FFXIV comes out.

Just picked up Demon's Souls a few days ago

GAME OF THE YEAR, IMHO!

seriously, do yourself a favor and try this game out. There is litterally no other game out there like this game. Even just watching a few gameplay videos and reading a few reviews will probably convince you.

I recommend this one if your curious. (And you should be!):

I was playing CoD:MW2, but didn't really like it, I love Borderlands but I burnt the content and am waiting for PC DLC, I'm currently trying to get through Dragon Age Origins (which is epic in scale but so-so in gameplay), I want to play ACII but can't find a copy, and I absolutely can't wait for Bioshock II (Feb 9th). In between I'm playing FFXI occasionally and really want some new info >O!
