I just started Chapter 6 last night.  If I can lure my wife away from Psyconaughts, I'm sure I'll complete the game this weekend. 

And Jeremy, you don't need no more stinking arsenals!!!

Holy shit, the battle at the end of Chapter 6 is brutal!  Finally made it past after many attempts (and a few necessary arsenal tweaks).  I have another level available in multiplayer now with a couple more to come shortly I'm sure.  I'm at mission 98.

Done.

But I still have a few battles left to do.  Interesting.  The last boss is a bit of a bitch.  Be prepared

Well, 114 out of 114 missions, just shy of 47 hours.  I've talked to everybody and no one has any missions so I think I'm done.  Right now I have 292 out of 300 skills, so I need to do a few more simulations to earn the rest.  I only have 2 online skills.  I hope to have 5 before I'm sick of the game.  That leaves what, 59? 

This has to be the best $20 game I've ever purchased.  If you don't own it,  :P

What eight skills do you need, Matt?  I may have extras to trade.  Give me until the end of today...I should have it completed as well.

Right now I'm missing:

154 - Gaurd of Water
163 - Desertification
167 - Berserk
295 - Annoying Gift

Every now and then after a simulation battle another new skill becomes available, but it's slow going.  You finish it yet?

edit:  two to go.  went to a friends for a bbq this afternoon, hopefully I'll get the other tow tonight.  If not, I'll be looking to trade.

edit 2:  Now I have them all thanks to Jeremy!  Now that I have them all what the hell am I going to do with them?

Not quite yet....but I've got Annoying Gift and Desertification I believe.

EDIT:  Just checked, I only have 1 copy of Desertification and Guard of Water.  I'll see what I've got at the end.

Well, just finished.  114/114 missions completed.  47h 1m 24sec.

I need three skills to complete the list of 300:

180 - Orb
264 - Sign of Saints
299 - Amulet

Can anyone trade me these?  Trial and error with the shops could take a while!  Matt, I definitely have an extra Annoying Gift and Desertification if you still need them.

EDIT:  Got 'em all!

Jeremy, how hard did you find the last boss to be?  (use spoiler tags if necessary)  (do we have spoiler tags?)

A hideous bitch of a boss!  Took me 5 or 6 times I think.  To avoid spoilers, I suggest we discuss it online.  And no, we don't have spoiler tags.  Do you need any skills Matt or did you collect them all?

I hope to see more of you picking this game up.  As I have been saying all along, it has excellent production values and is really fun to play.

I've completed 55 missions so far, in about 40 hours. Maybe I played GTA3 for this long, but other than that it's the most hours I've ever put into a single game.

Game of the Year. Hell, maybe Game of the Console.

I agree, Allen.  There are very few games I can recall over the last five years that I put so much time into (and so quickly).  How are you doing with the campaign, Bryan?  Or have you just been into multiplayer so far?

I've completed nine missions - almost through with chapter two, I believe.
