Got both for less than 30 euro combined.

Thought i'd get them before they completely disappear.

Actually, the vast majority of JRPGs easily disappear, whether or not they are good or bad.

Last 2 games I bought are Mass Effect and Machinarium from Steam.

Especially in Europe they are a good investment I find. Even now after it's only been out a few months Vesperia is going for more then I paid for it.

Lucky! I paid full price for both. I actually owned Infinite Undiscovery twice, but I could never finish it.

I will be the judge of that if you dont mind. I could also say what i think of Need for speed shift and stoked but i kept it to myself.

As northeastmonk mentioned though, JRPG's tend to disappear in the span of a year. You either get them or u wont get the chance to (new at least). Odd exception beeing Eternal Sonata... its been around for ages. O.o

i've no issues you commenting on them if you have actually played them and can offer constructive critique, i've played both those square games and found them to be utter by the numbers jrpg gash that have failed to change a single bit from the ps2 days, like all the square stuff this gen tbh (i just hope that FF13 doesn't go the same way) .. i used to be big square whore but this gen they have gone down the lav IMO and have failed to really make the move to current gen systems well .. btw both of which i'm playing carry higher averages than those square games on gamer rankings .. :p

does anyone know if they ever fixed the nasty load times on The Last Remnant and v/low frame rate, i think they did it for the pc version (am sure Alucard will know off the top off his head) but not sure about the console version? If they didn't have fun with that one if they haven't ... 20-30secs before every fight if i recall?? .. a HDD install is a must

Eh, it's not hard for a long-running, heavily-marketed and approved series like NFS to have a good average.

its also easy for games with the many issue that Last Remnant had to get low a average.

i'll give HFS shift its dues .. i'v not played any of the others in the series.. .. and for some arcade racing .. its v/good fun to be fair to it.

Crap I've bought lately:







I got Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania Legends at a yard sale. $3 for both.
