You know what's great? Portal, I played that for the first time ever earlier this year, and I just fell in love with it. If you haven't played it seriously consider doing so.

I've played around half of it via the demo.  And a while ago I bought the game, but haven't really played it much.  Liked what I did play though.  Oh, by the way, same company, different game. 
Team Fortress 2.  Got the game a couple weeks ago and with the help of my brother have clocked like 25 hours, at least on it.  It's the kind of game that once you get it you forget about all other video games you own, and this is what you want to do all day.  In other words, it's great!  :D

I thought Portal was a very elegantly designed game and I really respect it... but I'm not sure I PERSONALLY love it. I dunno. Maybe it's just not my play style.

I'm not big on 3D platforming in general, but replaying Portal a couple months ago made me find that the maneuvering and such was a lot smoother than I had remembered. Only one or two moments in the game provoked genuine frustration, and even that was usually only temporary.

OMG TACTICS OGRE: WHEEL OF FATE on PSP
Director: Hiroshi Minagawa
Game Design: Yasumi Matsuno
Character Design: Akihiko Yoshida, Tsubasa Masao
Music: Hitoshi Sakimoto, Masaharu Iwata
Published by Square Enix
Famitsu says : All this talent gathered again

The article specifically says that Matsuno is personally revising the script and making all the additions and changes to the original script. There will be a lot more text in the remake script, and there will be new side stories and characters to flesh out the world and feelings of the characters in the original game.

Also, New Parasite Eve : the 3rd birthday - complete E3 trailer

U.B. remix :o ?

ShinGundam...
link to article...
NOW

EDIT: To the Tactics Ogre article, I mean. If SE picked up the Ogre Battle franchise after all this time, maybe hope for Chrono isn't out of the question!

I can't wait to see Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together with yummy new sprites. And if this is just a re-release of the 1995 version, I'll shoot my toe off (nevermind, I'm getting worried I'd actually have to go through with that). I haven't found any images yet, but the rumor mill is making this seem like the Chrono Trigger re-release on the DS. But why would they need the power of the PSP if they're just using those little Super Nintendo sprites? Wouldn't the DS have been a better choice due to market penetration, or something?

They have strong line-up for PSP, also there is a major portable game on PSP called Agito XIII, it is a full-spec FF title which means it has a world map, Airship unlike the recent FF : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DNOK31mI7Y

You just made my day Shin, thanks! I hadn't seen any of those yet. The new character artwork is delish at least.

I'm still uneasy about the fact that the sprites and environments appear non-updated, though the screens are so blurry it's difficult to tell whether they're exactly the same or if they've been heightened a few pixels. Square Enix could try playing up the fact that Tactics Ogre inspired Final Fantasy Tactics I suppose, but if they don't squeeze some nebulous minimum number of sales from the game, it could spell the complete death of the Ogre Battle franchise as long as it remains in SE's hands.

I'm probably complaining just because I want to see that Lans Hamilton musicbox scene with updated graphics. *Sniff*, poor Lans. Matsuno's such a genius.

Definitely looking forward to this. I sort of wonder why they chose PSP as well, but hey, as long as it doesn't have the hideous slowdown of War of the Lions, I'm totally in.

On a similar topic, I REALLY hope the 3DS will have a Virtual Console, because I doubt I'm going to end up playing through the entirety of Ogre Battle 64 on my Wii.

Thanks again Shin! I wonder if there's some secret hidden in SE's site for the game, since certain parts of the "wheel" are mysteriously clickable.
