My Gaming Wishlist
JV has a solid PS3 library. There is a short list of games in it that I still need/want to finish: Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2, Little Big Planet 1 & 2, Fallout New Vegas, 3D Dot Heroes, Bayonetta, Sengoku Basara, and others I'm sure I'm forgetting. (I've finished Ni no Kuni; I haven't hit 100% on the trophies or finished all the postgame content, but I beat the story, so I'm counting it as finished, even if I'm still grinding for 100%, haha.) As a result, there aren't a whole lot of recent-ish releases that I'm desperate to acquire because JV already owns most of them. Instead what I could really do with are some of the few consoles we don't have.
JV has a Retron 3, which plays SNES, NES, and Genesis/Megadrive games, so we have a whole boatload of retro stuff covered. He also has a DreamCast, a GameCube, a PS2, a PS3, and an Xbox 360. Out of the ones we're missing right now, the one I would love to get the most is the Wii. Or Wii U, I guess. My brother got a Wii for the family soon after its release and I built up a small library of games. But because I was also moving around internationally soon after we got it (going back and forth between the US and South Korea), I didn't get to devote a lot of time to gaming after I graduated in 2008. As a result, I've missed most of the Wii library except Guitar Hero, No More Heroes, Ookami, Super Mario Galaxy, and Trauma Center. I have no idea what's out and available for the Wii U now, and I don't particularly care, but anything that plays Wii games is fine by me!
I've been even less diligent in keeping up with portable gaming. I have my GBA SP, and that's about it. I could use a DS and catch up on all the new portable games I'm missing out on. It finally feels like I have the time again! (Until classes and work both start again in January. Sigh...)
This is a stretch this month, I suppose, but I was just thinking the other day how Jade Empire is clearly the best game that BioWare has ever done (oh yeah, I went there) and how it's too bad we'll never see a sequel or even another game set in the same universe because they're too busy milking that Mass Effect cash cow. But maybe, someday, if we can all convince EA that it would make megabucks, we'll see another Jade Empire game. If you haven't played it, you should! It has probably one of the best combat systems ever devised.
