Yeah, I suppose. At any rate, while I found the first part of Metroid Prime 2 pretty interesting, I did my usual thing where I got distracted and have done very little with MP2, to say nothing of MP3. At some point I got in a Zelda mood, probably because of getting Ocarina of Time 3D to play on lunch at work, so rather than replay Twilight Princess like I was considering, I figured I should actually go back and finish Skyward Sword before playing a game I've already been through more than once. In the end I was halfway glad I completed it, and halfway wished I'd just played Twilight Princess. Certainly not one of my favorite Zelda games by any stretch. But whatever, at least that's over with.
Some time not too long before I finished Skyward Sword I also lost my mind and bought the 500GB Assassin's Creed III PS3 bundle. I had been thinking of getting one for a while, and Newegg went and put on a one day only eBay-exclusive deal to get the bundle for $229.99 with no tax and free shipping. Shouldn't have spent the money, but figured it was the best deal I'd see on one before Black Friday most likely. So after finishing SS, I have since moved on and played through other random stuff, including Modern Warfare 3's campaign (PS3 version, dirt cheap, I was bored), Assassin's Creed III (greatly enjoyed this one although the ending was a little weird, more looking forward to IV now than before), and most recently Super Meat Boy (360). Always meant to go back and finish Super Meat Boy, and finally went back to it a couple days ago. Rather difficult, loads of fun, and happy to have completed it. Well, the light world anyway. The dark world and any delusions of 100% completion can go take a flying leap.
Somewhere in there I also played some of Marvel vs Capcom 3 on the 360 for whatever reason. Hooray for the X series version of Zero. Also have played a bit of 3D Dot Game Heroes, which so far is the best retro game tribute/Zelda ripoff with random Armored Core references ever. But as for right now, I'm really not sure what I am in the mood to play. I have a large list of things I should really consider starting (Darksiders, Skyrim, Prototype, Final Fantasy XIII, Brutal Legend, and Alan Wake, just towards the top of the stack), as well as others I should go back and finish, but I am incredibly indecisive right now. Which is part of the reason I am typing all this crap out instead of actually playing something.
Maybe I'll finally go play Mega Man 9. Super Meat Boy has me in the mood for retro platformers. Definitely going to use the Sony controller adapter for that one, though. Used the 360 controller for a little while after getting back into it, and it didn't take long to get frustrated with it. Even the version with the improve d-pad still gets to be a pain after a while. It's too bad I already paid for Mega Man 9 & 10 on the 360 quite a while ago, otherwise I'd save the hassle of controller adapters and get them for the PS3.
On the multiplayer side of things with people, it's been almost exclusively Halo Wars lately. I have no real explanation for this, nor do I understand why it continues to hold our attention lately. But that's enough of this rambling anyway.

Heh, I never even thought of the kind of issues that might arise by playing a game like that at odd hours. Although I suppose you could always change the time on your DS.
I've somewhat lost track of stuff I've been playing since my last wall of text, but most recently I've played through Infamous twice (once as a hero, once as a jerk), and just finished up with The Last Of Us yesterday. Infamous looks like a turd and has it's issues here and there, but it's pretty fun overall, and the story was better than I was expecting. The Last Of Us was nothing short of fantastic. I wasn't sure what I would think of the game going into it, but it ended up being one of the best games I've played in quite some time. Better story and acting there than in a lot of movies.
I finished Mario 3D Land at some point, and I've also been playing Project X Zone for 3DS on my work lunches lately. Not a lot of depth to it, but it's pretty entertaining for what it is. I just need to hurry up and get to the point where X and Zero are in my party. (which of course, is halfway why I bought it, heh)
As for now, I haven't made up my mind on whether I should start Bioshock Infinite, Infamous 2, or maybe something that has been sitting untouched on my shelf for years like Alan Wake, Brutal Legend, or Prototype. Or maybe try to finish Xenoblade Chronicles, Final Fantasy XIII, or 3D Dot Game Heroes. Gah.

As if my backlog of games wasn't big enough already, I managed to acquire Assassin's Creed IV (PS3), Forza 4 (360), and Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (3DS) during Christmas shenanigans. I've been working on Forza 3, Mega Man Maverick Hunter X (PSP), and New Super Mario Bros 2 (3DS) mostly, with occasional bits of Japan's Super Mario 2 (Lost Levels, whatever you want to call it) since it was free for the Wii on Club Nintendo. But I'm trying to actually start in on the new games now, rather than let them sit there for a year and a half (*coughskyrimcough*) or more like some others, so I've been playing a ACIV a bit. Planning to work on A Link Between Worlds on work lunches, but I'm kind of getting the urge to go back and finish Ocarina 3D first. Also been getting back into Lord of the Rings Online when other people are on. Would like to do more with that opn my own as well, but there are just too many games and not enough time.
It seems no matter how few hours I get at work and how many days off I have, I still can't find the time for all these games. I need a year's paid vacation or something. Maybe a winning lottery ticket. At least I know I have no need to get a PS4 any time before Destiny comes out. I still probably won't have made much progress on this backlog by then.

Yeah, I've certainly been there. I've gotten a little better at waiting to buy games until they come down in price unless I'm ready to play them, but there are still a few like that, such as that shrink wrapped copy of Bioshock Infinite for PS3 sitting on the shelf, which just so happens to be going free on PlayStation Plus this month. Infamous 2 is still in the package as well, but I paid very little for that one. At least my procrastinating on looking into Borderlands finally paid off when Borderlands 2 went free on PS+ last month.
I've had multiple coworkers tell me I should look into that Bravely Default demo (and insist on exchanging friend codes for that town building thing), but I haven't given it much of a chance yet. I poked around, fought a couple things, died horribly, and went to play something else, heh. I intend to mess with it more at some point, though. I've been looking for a decent turn-based RPG.
...which of course brings me back to the backlog, reminding me that I should really try out that copy of Tales of the Abyss I picked up for 3DS some time back. And Brave Story for the PSP. It never ends!
I suppose this is at least better than not having any good games to play.

I really, really need to stop buying games until I play through the pile that I have. But then Sony waves Tales of Xillia in front of me and says "Look! $10 digital download! Go on, you know you want it... We even take PayPal now!", and of course, I cave.
Then I go wandering through some random stores in a shopping center yesterday, one of which happens to be GameStop, which I already know is a bad idea. I ask the innocent question of if they still carry PSP games, to which they reply "Sure! They're right over here." And of course the first game sitting on the shelf is a copy of Castlevania Dracula X Chronicles with case and manual, and a price tag that says "Look! $8.99 with your PowerUpRewards card! Go on, you know you want it..."
I need to stop.
But in the meantime, I'm going to go play far enough into Rondo of Blood to unlock Symphony of the Night now.

So I actually finished not one, but two games in my pile! Hooray! Assassin's Creed IV and Bit.Trip Runner 2 (both on PS3), specifically. Enjoyed both quite a bit. Thinking of tracking down the Bit.Trip Saga for 3DS now at some point, but as usual, I really shouldn't be buying more games, heh...
Speaking of which, I bought Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 for PS3 on release day at work because we had one copy left and I had a leftover gift card to cover part of the cost. I have yet to actually take the plastic off of it. Boo. That's largely due to being busy lately with a new position at work and some other stuff going on. What little time I have had for games usually ends up being multiplayer with a couple people I generally play online with. *throws a brick at Elysion v2* Lately that online play has been a very random mix of Armored Core Verdict Day, Halo Wars, Forza 4, and most recently people trying to get me into World of Tanks on 360.
I should really screw around with MarioKart Wii a few more times online with people before they shut that down.
I suppose I should try to start Castlevania next, but I'm not sure when I'll get a decent amount of time for it. Maybe I'll actually open it tomorrow! However the power was out for most of the day a couple days ago (hooray people crashing into power poles!), so I dug out my 3DS and went back to playing Project X Zone in the dark. Still having fun with it, and still haven't actually played enough to unlock X and Zero, heh. It's kind of gotten me back in the mood for it though, so I might continue with that for now. I usually try to save my portable games for times like that when I can't play other games, but my new work schedule has kind of eliminated my time for gaming on lunch breaks, and power outages don't happen that often around here.
So many games, so little time. As always. I really should play Castlevania soon, though. At least before there is a price drop, heh.
That's enough random rambling from me for now, I guess.

I seem to be in the minority there, but I enjoyed pretty much everything about Assassin's Creed III, slightly more than IV in some ways if you factor in the story. I still really enjoyed IV overall, though. I almost forgot about the whole thing with hunting down posters until you mentioned it, haha. That is definitely nice to not have to deal with in IV.
I am still amazed at how much time I can spend just tinkering around with designs in Armored Core 3. My last several lunches at work have been spent just working on designs in the PSP version and not actually doing any missions. Just like the good old days, heh. I love having portable Armored Core finally, especially when AC3 and Silent Line are still my favorites in the series.
Multiplayer has mostly still been a lot of Armored Core Verdict Day. World of Tanks is not bad now and then. Kind of makes me miss Chromehounds, though.
Still haven't actually taken the plastic off of Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2. Sigh.

That's about what I did with Assassin's Creed IV myself as well, although I did go through and do all the hacking because the little hidden story details intrigue me. I kind of forgot I have Sleeping Dogs sitting around on my hard drive from the Xbox Games with Gold thing a while back, but I haven't touched it yet. Probably should at some point, but it's a ways down on my list of games I should really play one of these days.
Oh! I took the plastic off of Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2! And I even started it! Definitely interesting so far, so hopefully I manage to stick with it and not get to distracted like often times. Not very far into it, but the soundtrack is great once again, and Robert Carlyle does an excellent job with his character like before. Good having Patrick Stewart back as well.
I also randomly bought The Impossible Game for $0.74 on the PSN for some reason. Entertaining distraction here and there, but definitely a bit trickier than BitTrip Runner2 (the only other similar game I've really played), at least for me. It's compatible with both the PS3 and PSP, so I intend to try mainly play that on the PSP so as not to distract myself from other games when I'm at home. But we'll see how that goes, heh.
Armored Core Verdict Day continues to distract me as well. Things are going fairly well with the team I'm on lately.
