I don't get the hype around handheld consoles and their games.

Same reason as any other game, I guess? For Link between Worlds, the fact that it was a new Zelda was enough. For Super Smash Bros. It takes me back to the many happy hours I spent playing Melee with my brother and friends.

In between bouts of DS2, I have begun playing Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, a game that Blanko - fine, I won't say he recommended it, but he endorsed it, at any rate.  It's a lot of fun so far.  I guess I'll say more about it when I play more of it.

They just don't seem worth the money to me.

Get a PSP. It will change your life. It's a walking emulator.

Jailbreaking required for maximum fun.

I beat MGS V: Ground Zeroes last night. It was an interesting experience to say the least.

Well that goes without saying, anyone who's had it for fifteen minutes has beaten it. :P

That's an exaggeration. There's actually a lot of optional content that pushes the game well beyond the 5 hour mark if you want to 100% it. Still not much, but it's something. Regardless, I really liked it and I don't feel like I wasted $30. Most people who complain about the length did no optional content and skipped cutscenes. Actually, when I bought it from Gamestop (don't make fun of me), the cashier told me not to buy the game because of the length and I pretty much said something along the lines of "fuck you I do what I want". Then he gave me the case without the disc (new my ass) and I couldn't bring it back until the next day to get the actual game. >_<

I'm in the mood now to give Peace Walker another go.

Also, can't get this song out of my head...

I watched my brother complete it, I assumed it was just a demo for Phantom Pain, I didn't realise you had to pay full price for it.

I've played through Saints Row: The Third and now I'm playing Saints Row IV.  They're good.

I'm also playing Far Cry 3 on the side.  It's good, except for the annoying UI and the incredibly generic, borderline-racist story.  Speaking of which, Ubisoft must have paid attention to all that criticism, because the story for Far Cry 4 is apparently going to be the exact opposite:

Chrono Trigger

Among the greatest JRPGs ever created along with Final Fantasy VI, praise I know some will scoff at. I haven't played it in a few years and it's fun getting back into the hectic pace of the fully active combat system, the crazy group attacks and often unforgiving enemies. It's also notable that the story manages to do time travel without becoming a convoluted mess. And it has a great soundtrack by Yasunori Mitsuda.

I'd consider Chrono Trigger one of my favorite JRPGs. It changed the genre forever and its still amazingly fun to play after all these years... Chrono Cross is good too, but not nearly as awesome as CT. Of course, this is all coming from someone who prefers Final Fantasy V over both of them.

The only thing I remember about Cross is the combat system is really confusing. I'll have to try it again some time.

That's the biggest flaw with Chrono Cross by far. It gets easier the more you play, and the game is especially easy once you figure out how to exploit the system. The best thing about CC is toward the end when it ties into Chrono Trigger (after about 30-40 hours of gameplay).

I want to love and really give Chrono Trigger a chance since it gets endless praise for being God's gift to gaming, but the various times I've tried to start it I can never really get too into it. I generally get around...I don't know, I know you get the frog guy in that one castle and I beat that area and play for a while after, but I never get pulled in.

I will say, the music is amazing. Probably the thing I liked most each time I played.

The first few hours are admittedly a slow burn, but once the time travel mechanic opens up, which is not all that far into the game, shit gets real.

I just got Psychonauts on Steam so it looks great. I'm seeing details I've never noticed before.
