Tch, I already finished Saiyuki. Apparently if I need a project I can sink my teeth into, it has to be of Unlimited Saga proportions... =/

I can't believe how quickly you churn out quality FAQs for interesting and complex games. Unlimited SaGa is an awesome game that almost no one likes and last I knew, there was a bounty for it on GameFAQs. Are you really going to write for it?

I'd like to write for it, but since it's multi-path and I've only been able to stand about 2 hours of it, probably not in the near future. Wouldn't say the game is as bad as the rep it's gotten, but it's certainly got a weird insular/esoteric feel to it that pushes about 90% of the RPG public away. Might get away with writing a guide on the first playthrough for a simpler RPG, but that one seemed like something that has to be gone through first for a good understanding. Did you play all the way through?

Unlimited SaGa is a huge game, yeah. I didn't play all the way through but I sank quite a few hours into it and enjoyed myself a lot. I really look forward to some day playing lots and lots more. I love how dungeons are explored, I enjoyed the plot and art style, the music was fantastic and the battle system worked pretty well for me. It's definitely a unique game and to me that was a huge part of its appeal. I wouldn't want to FAQ it, though. I could imagine that taking forever!

I've played US a bit lately to see if I can get through its nigh impenetrable...uh, self. Kinda have a feel for it but there's still a lot of alien aspects to me.

My last topic got deleted by Venter's coding. It was supposed to be forever =(

In any case, I'm working on Top Spin 3 Wii, which is my first project in like, 2 years?

Still doing Legaia 2 stuff at a sluggish pace, and really more interested in Beyond Good & Evil since it seems a good cleanin' got around a nasty glitch. Probably that and Summoner 2 are gonna get done after I'm freed up again.

You're fast becoming my favorite active FAQ writer. Keep up the good work as long as you can, though I don't see how you do it!

Hah, thanks. Idle hands are the FAQer's playthings, as they say.

Majora's Mask to satisfy a coauthor. Fun stuff. I will have to shut myself up in my room for the next two days to get a large chunk done.

I think it took me about a week and a half for the entirety of the walkthrough and most of the appendix.

That beast of a recruitment section took me at least another week I think.

Whew, almost done with Legaia stuff. Kinda want to start Summoner 2 afterwards but I've got a weird hankering to do something for Survival Kids (GBC), the awesome deserted island exploration game.

Finally finished Half-Life 2 after a week of crappy stumbling blocks. Guess it's onto Summoner 2 or something.

I was this close (-> <-) to getting Rhapsody but it fell through.

Finished Tomb Raider II and almost conned myself into starting Drakengard...then I did the first chapter and realized how boring most of it is! Ahaha...meh...

It's great except for the mind-numbing monotony that permeates every action. ^___^

It could be worse.

You could be playing Chrono Cross or Legend of Dragoon.

Oh, wait

Zing!

Yeah, well...your face!

But luckily I dropped Drakengard for Ace Combat 5, which has more explosions.
