How was the Last Story? (No spoilers please) I haven't picked it up yet. I was looking at it this past week in a Gamestop. Did it leave you satisfied and wanting more?

I have been playing Spyborgs today a lot. It is a retro arcade type beat'em up. Loving every minute of it. Great mindless time waster.  :D

The Last Story is a fantastic jrpg. It was made by Mistwalker, so the story has a kind of Final Fantasy feel to it. The characters are great, there's a lot of sidequests, and I thought the battle system was a lot of fun. I think it was around 40 hours, so it's pretty short for a jrpg, but it was excellent nonetheless. There's a New Game+ option where some things changes the second time you play it, but I haven't started on that yet.

I highly recommend The Last Story if you like jrpgs.

I'm still playing with my wii...

The used games have gotten cheap and there's still a ton I've not played yet. Currently we've found that older iterations of skylanders (portals, games, etc) are cheap and a lot of the portals work on different platforms so we've had tons of fun finding and playing skylanders.

I am embarrassed to say that it has been a while since I have played with my wii...

But I have used it for Netflix. I need to go hunting for those games that I have missed, good idea.

So many games across so many systems right now. Great times.  8)

There is a ton of flaming crap out for the wii so be prepared to dig through the junk. The collectable stuff is still pretty rough, Xenosaga, Metroid Collection, Mario whatevers, but there's also some solid stuff that's worth the money Little King's Story comes to mind...

I found out there's a decent amount of quality RPGs to be had, and have been snatching them up every time I see one.

There was a Metroid collection on the Wii?  Are we talking Prime or original Metroid?

I pretty much gave up on the franchise when I read the horrible reviews of Metroid: The Other M.

That is disappointing...  I had high hopes for a hybrid 2d/3d Metroid.  Nintendo handed it off to a team that was known for being degrading to women characters though.  That should have been a clear no-no for them.  Samus had been one of their strongest franchise heroes.

My girlfriend and I named one of our pet ratties Samus too!

all three prime games got really good reviews and were fun, but nothing has lived up to super Metroid. Its really the pinnacle of the Metroid franchise

Metroid Prime LOOKED so cool and had a great soundtrack...

After playing Halo: CE though, the play controls felt very... well.. lacked control?

I really hated locking on to stuff to aim rather than being able to aim freely.

Metroid Prime is one of the best games EVER.  It is still odd that Castlevania: Symphony of the Night felt more like a sequel to Super Metroid than anything else did.

All this talk about Super Metroid (and to a lesser extent symphony of the night) has almost encouraged me to purchase a copy. I've long since sold both off

Those are the absolute pinnacle of platform gaming, and 2D gaming in general, for me.  The graphics, the sound, the play control, and the role playing elements in both were absolutely amazing.

I cannot see ever parting with my copies of those games.

Any argument would be incorrect, invalid, and wrong! :D
