THe FFIV remake kicks ass. I've been playing it for a few weeks now (in Japanese) and I can't wait to play through again in English. They did a marvelous job of transitioning from the sprite-based version to 3D. I'm really impressed.

There is an awesome FFIV ad in the back of the Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon booklet. Awesome. I can't wait to play it. It's one game that'll jump the queue and be played immediately.

I should form a queue too. :lol:

At least that way I wouldn't forget about great games I want to play...

Depends on clients, honesty! When they cancel on me I usually goof off and play FFIV instead. And Metal Gear Solid 4, that incredibly kick-ass game, has been completed, so there's no other games competing for my attention right now. I'm a pretty decent way in -- I've just arrived at the sealed cave. A few good runs and I'll be looming about on Zeromus' doorstep.

I'm glad they are porting this, as I don't think it came out over here at all.....well, I don't remember ever seeing it in the shops. I just hope they release it here.

Even if they don't you can import it.

I've thought about it, but I think there's an aspect of fun in keeping track of stuff myself that might help keep me better organized.

Hard to forget if they're staring you in the face at all times! The queue is helpful for me because I have all these games sitting around on my shelf and it reminds me which ones I have been interested in enough to put on a list. ;)

I heard they made a port of Valkyrie Profile for PSP. I never played that game, but heard it was great. I'd rather see a port of it remade for the DS than one of Chrono Trigger, which I've already played. :/ :/ :/

I kinda hate ports anyways, unless they're ports of games that I haven't played.

See it's the opposite for me, I have a hard time getting excited about an older port unless I played the game in the past and have the nostalgia going for me.

Valkyrie Profile is a fun game :) Got that for PS1, I don't think I beat it but I got to the end of the second disc..
