None of it will make sense until you've completed the game.  And when I say completed the game, I mean actually completed it.  There are a large number of people who see the credits and think the game is finished when there is a LOT more to do.  It is akin to the epilogue of Lunar 2: Eternal Blue - you are missing out on important content by not playing through it.

when i finished it i was confused,
Code: [Select]
i killed the boss and was like okay the throne lets me run around and look at shit but not really interact with anything. i was pissed that there didn't seem to be a new game+ then i watched a youtube video and found i got the best ending i just didn't realize i needed to kill myself with the sword just waiting for them to patch it now so i don't lose my save

It's sad how people like Jason Schrier can get a job in gaming journalism. The guy shitposted about video games for years on various gaming forums, all the way back to gamefaqs. He was basically a common troll that had a buddy get him in at Kotaku.

Now usually I expect some blather about how terrible Kotaku is or whatever... but not for someone specific and in this sort of way. I'm curious if you can elaborate?

He shitposted and trolled for years on web forums before getting into Kotaku. Most of this trolling was done on a private-but-hyperactive gaming spinoff forum. This wouldn't be such a big deal (people do grow up), except he jumped straight from his trolling/shitposting peak straight into Kotaku.

It was a pretty big joke at the time. Most of us on that other board were astounded that he, of all people in the world, could actually get a job in game journalism. When he was new at Kotaku, he would post his articles on said board, and then ban that board's users from Kotaku when they commented/disagreed with him.

There was a period where he began his journalism job while still trolling, and people began to call him out for it in public, so he generally keeps his trolling to his articles these days.

But now that I think about it, he is kind of a good match for Kotaku. Most of his trolling involved fucking around with some hot gaming topic in order to start arguments/argue with the community, snickering away while people bitched about inane bullshit. Think NeoGAF but less intelligent and openly hostile.

Now he applies his skills in the real world, posting provocative comments like "lolicon fantasy" in order to generate hits on his article, all while pushing the limits of the already-soft integrity of "gaming journalism."

I'm not an expert on the guy by any means. He was just a very prolific troll for some period on this board I was a member of. He doesn't really post there anymore due to the need to protect his public image.

what i thought was funny in a sad sorta way was last week he posted an article about censorship in jrpgs. to which i posted all censorship is lame, it seems a little bit hypocritical coming from someone who dogged dragons crown. other commenters told me that it is double funny since he removed several comments saying essentially the same thing. seriously it sounds like he's taking ques from fox news

maybe it's cause i had a barbie doll as well as gijoes as a kid or three older sisters that influenced me but i enjoy female player character's more often than male ones. i'd rather play as a bad assed chick than some beefy bro dude. maybe it's just me but i'd really like to see the industry get ahead of the curve.

Dark Souls -- Bed of Chaos

i second that, i was stuck at that boss for a long time while trying not to get swept into holes.

anytime there is a timed sequence in a game, (notably assassins creed games) i get super frustrated.

game are going to be 99 cents to 60 bucks... so i'm guessing the touch pad is for all the ios games ps4 is going after.

Got to say, now that I've gotten a better look at it I'm liking the new controller.  It's not a big departure, but it does look like there are a number of basic ergonomic improvements over the DS3.  In addition to the sticks and the triggers, the handles look much improved.  Check out the grippy material on them:

Will I actually use the move functionality or touch pad?  Who knows...but as long as they're optional that's fine.  Nothing wrong with having options.

yeah they pretty much read my mind about what i was hoping for out of the next controller. the ridges on the analog sticks will be so nice when my fingers are sweaty, also they rounded over the shoulder leading to the triggers. the indent on the ds3 i find annoying. i'm pretty ambivalent about the touch pad and share button but soon as i see a practical use i'll likely be sold on it. motion control = meh.

i didn't care about not seeing the console shape itself cause really it's gonna sit behind my tv anyhow. i'm glad the didn't go down the no used games path or the always online path either. i missed the beginning so i didn't hear anything  about gaikai streams or anything. i was worried about rumors that said "most online services were to be part of a subscription model similar to xbla gold" via kotaku. i hope it retains that free online model of ps3 with subs for streams or whatever else cause, at the moment i could care less about ps plus. however, if the streams work well, that added to plus would maybe the bump in value need for me to care about it. we'll see at e3 i guess.

for the most part i'm rather hopeful still. nothing has quite put off it yet, so there's that.

I had pretty good time with rogue galaxy nothing stands out as bad really. The basic tropes are about as far as character development ever got but it didn't bother me.

SoA is a game I've heard so much good about that I was going to buy a game cube copy when I got my wii, I haven't cause I've plenty to play at the moment. Plus when I heard the hd rumor I was willing to wait. I'd love to see that on psn. It's on my list of games to buy either way.

I could sit and marathon it very easily since I get laid off for the winter but I've been taking my time so I don't burn myself out. Much like agent d I think my roommate went though it so fast cause he was having a gout attack so he really wasn't doing anything but playing.
