This a tremendous idea. At last count I own: 11 Saturn games, 59 PSX games, 5 dreamcast, 78 PS2, 24 PSP, 33 DS, 10 Turbo Graphx, 22 360 and 14 PS3 games. And that doesn't even count all of the SNES and genesis games I used to own physical copies of (before some cock smack stole them) and now have backed up on my hard drive.

Honestly it's gotten a bit cumbersome and a little embarrassing to own that much hardware, but I've never been able to bring myself to sell or throw any of them out (breaking out the TG-16 every so often is worth the space it takes up).  I promised myself after I broke down and finally bought a ps3 (to play the last of us) that I'd never buy another console again, but I'll probably end up getting a Vita.

I feel like a goddamn hoarder sometimes though.

Recently slogged through almost 100 hours of FFXII.  That game somehow managed to be a fat giant turd and impossibly addictive at the same time.  Then I went on a Ys spending spree.  Just finished I and II and have just started Oath of Felghana. 

Does anyone here also keep a journal of the games they've completed?  I like to use " because it works a lot like GoodReads in that respect.  My backlog is RIDICULOUS though.

Don't forget, RPGs aren't the ONLY games out there man. There are a lot of great ones on the console, the recent port of Diablo 3 happens to be the best version of the game you can get. Infamous was indeed GREAT, and I actually got Skylanders and happen to be greatly enjoying it. The console has a lot to offer, and come October even more to offer. I love RPGS too, but if you really loved them you would get a Vita (if you don't already have one) or 3DS (if you don't already have one)

Valid, but sometimes...I just feel too goddamned old to be walking around in public with a handheld.  And I can't remember the last non-rpg not called The Last of Us that I really enjoyed... I Am Alive maybe?

is a better/more entertaining game than PD Saga. Yup, deal with it.

I just tried to slog my way through The Tudors.  I loved the show Rome back in the day so I thought I give it a shot.  Freaking horrible though.  How they managed to make King Henry VIII's life of drinking and whoring,beheading and then whoring some more seem pedestrian is completely beyond me.

BTW, I hate to be inflammatory (OK, that's a lie), but am I the only one who kind of hated Aegis?  I don't feel like her character had any depth in the first place.

Strange, since a large part of her story arc is how her character grows (ie "gains depth of character") in the game.  Though I think if you don't specifically pursue a relationship you might have missed a lot of what ultimately happens with her.

Can't believe no one has mentioned Neil Gaimon's classic The Sandman or Brian Vaughn's (The same guy who wrote Saga) masterpiece Y the Last Man

I'm abstaining from answering that question on account of not being 100% up to speed of the rules of this board

my japanese is as terrible as my english grammar, but you can definitely watch movies in a language you understand less than 5% of and still get something out of it as long as you already know what's going to happen.

For real though, with the MAYBE possible exception of Transistor are there any halfway decent PS4 exclusive RPG's out yet?  What conceivable reason can anyone give me for forking over 400 dollars for a next gen console?

I saw there was a thread on this earlier but I watched a pretty rough cut of it and wasn't entirely...thrilled  with what I saw.  I think after playing the game for almost 80 hours I had a pretty solid idea of who the SP (silent protagonist) was.  Unfortunately, the movie film sort of portrayed him as more of a cloud strife/squall type asshole than I was ready to deal with.  I also think they dropped the ball with Aegis (by far the best character in the game) by not giving her enough depth.   Did anyone else that actually played through the games and then watched the film have a similar experience?  Am I just being a butt hurt nerd and asking for more than a 90 minute film can realistically deliver?

Fee free to add your hate here

Anime, TV, and Movies / Buying the Cowboy Beebop Box Set...

for the girlfriend's birthday.  There are roughly a 1000 different variations of various detail and prices.  I know I don't want to simply get her the baseline run of the mill $40 version.  Any suggestions on purchasing a snazzy deluxe version of the series (and extras, if possible)?

Any and all help is much appreciated.

I've been playing rpgs since my brother first brought home FFIV (II at the time) for our snes when I was in the 3rd grade.  I first found RPGFan when I was in college at Purdue in the mid 2000's.  And I can honestly say, with very few exceptions (FFXIII being the big one) I haven't purchased a physical copy of a single RPG that these guys didn't review favorably.

I randomly signed up recently because the forums at my old go-to site completely fell apart and i needed somewhere else to waste time during work.  I'm sure you're all horrible horrible people and I look forward to learning to hate each and every last one of you.
