Well, I guess people can decide for themselves if they prefer my unprofessional review or your professional one. :roll:

Don't you have to be paid for it to be professional? J T's can be a clinical review, since he's a doctor. :P

Dave was going to be paid but donated the money to NPR, so it counts.

Sorry, I should have used blue text. I was mostly trying to get a rise out of noise, since it was for his deal.

January
1. Devil's Attorney (Android) 7/10
2. Resident Evil 5 (360) 8/10
3. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (360) 8/10
4. Dragon Quest VIII (PS2) 9/10
5. Gears of War (360) 6/10

February
6. Uncharted: Golden Abyss (Vita) 7/10
7. Orcs & Elves (DS) 8/10

Orcs & Elves is a well designed lightweight turn based dungeon crawler with a retro flair. Playing very fast paced with low difficulty, Orcs & Elves is more concerned with the player having fun than merely surviving. Constant combat is kept interesting through a large variety of unique weapons and tactical potion usage. The plot is quite thin, however the ever pervasive humor goes a long way to keep things interesting. With better graphics and an actual OST, Orcs & Elves may have gained more traction. However, those with fond memories of Heretic and Eye Of The Beholder would do well to roll this DS underdog a saving throw.

Previously: 2014 | The First 400 Games

Enduro is the game I picked from a slim field of "E" games of interest to me released in 1983. I counted it as "beaten" when I played well enough to earn the Activision badge associated with the game (which was no easy task!). Another innovative and interesting Activision VCS title :)

Diablo III I've been playing off and on for a few weeks in co-op with my son and, during his two hour snow delay this morning, we finally took down the Prime Evil. We'll get to the content in the Reaper of Souls expansion this weekend, probably. The game is just as fun on the console as it was on the PC, though I think I still prefer it on the latter. In any case, the game has been on my "Games Beaten" list in some form or fashion for the past three years and is safely in my list of "Top 10 favorite games of all time" at this point.

Almost no gaming time over the weekend, too busy cleaning and rearranging all my stuff. Trying to get my collection all organized into one room, and taking up less space.

Anyway, last night I went through Conquest of the Crystal Palace. It's a decent game, very mild RPG elements, and some creepy Japanese imagery at times, and it was even creepier in spots in the original release. It can also be pretty tough. The physics feel a little off, you immediately drop if you slash your sword in midair. But really, overall, it's one of those underappreciated little gems on the system.

The music in that game is amazing. Especially when you're in Kim's shop.

Fun fact about Conquest of the Crystal Palace; it was the first commercial game that Yasumi Matsuno worked on. Yes that Matsuno-san. He is listed as "Planner" in the credits.
