Yeah, Dormammu is great. I don't have much time to play right now, since I'm working on stuff for the site, but I managed to beat Arcade once with Dormammu, Spidey, and X-23.

I'm most fond of the tail falling down at the end of the Raptor vid. It's the ultimate defeat.

Doesn't matter. The Knight of Lodis isn't crucial to the story of LUCT, especially considering that it was released after the initial LUCT release.

This is funny to me, because every time I go to Gamestop, they call it "Tactics Org" and seem confused about why I am ordering it.

That. Never. Happened.  At least not in my world.

Actually, I have to say, that book wasn't much good either.  But still, William Goldman!  If it's true that "nobody bats 100%" (that saying really doesn't work if you write it down), that's the movie where Goldman made a wild swing, tripped, got hit in the head by the ball, and smacked the umpire with his bat. :(

I KNOW! It's like..."Butch Cassidy, The Princess Bride, Misery...Dreamcatcher?" How does that even happen?

Well, you know - Stephen King movies have their own special sub-set of rules. :)  Namely, if he writes the movie, it'll stink.  If someone else does, it'll be good.

This is a lie. The worst movie I've ever seen (ever) is a Stephen King movie written by someone else. It is called Dreamcatcher. And it is awful. And it was (co-)written by William Goldman, believe it or not.

Namco is probably bringing Graces F over to gauge whether bringing over Xillia and/or Abyss 3DS would be worth it as well.

I've heard the same. Actually I heard that the formula that there using to determine whether Xillia comes over is that however many units ToGf sells in NA, it needed to sell a thousand more copies for them to bring Xillia over. :-/

I miss the only responsibility I had in college: going to class.  Now the real world sets in and suddenly I have worry about finances, student loans, health insurance....I want to go back to when I didn't have a care in the world.  I'll take lectures and papers over having to pay for all the boring stuff. :-P  Brace yourself, the real world sucks.

Dissenting opinion!

College tends to be great for a lot of reasons, especially if you have good friends, classes you like, etc. - but the "real world" can be underrated. Yeah, responsibilities (especially financial ones) can be a drag sometimes...but there's a pretty great sense of achievement when you do things that you can pay for on your own - buy your first house, get your first promotion, take a big vacation that you planned / saved for, etc. It's like winning in the Sims, except, y'know, real life. Spidey's famous quote goes both ways, sometimes with great responsibility comes great empowerment - and a great deal of self-worth.

Plus, I really like the sense of my workday being done, and then being able to relax, rather than having to worry about finals / a project that's due in a month - though nowadays I deal with work projects that're like that sometimes.


But I totally empathize with the finances / student loans issue. I have a relatively small loan amount (from two years of grad school), and I still have to pay a huge chunk every month until I'm 39. The loan companies are monsters. :(

Boom. It's official.

Tales of Graces F in North America.

EDIT: We'll have more information as it becomes available.

I love me some physical media - so as long as the flash cards come in sweet collectible boxes, I'll probably not care about the switch to UMD. The thing that's most interesting to me is that the previously-downloaded PSP games will be playable on this really makes it advantageous to switch over to buying at the PSN store.

I'm also interested in the 3G capabilities. Not that I'm sure how useful it would be...and I'm not keen on adding another $20-$30 bill to my collection.

The new episode is up, people!

Also, I bought DDS 1 and 2, but haven't played enough to really comment.  Maybe I'll get a chance to with this slow season before Dragon Age 2....
Radiant Historia, Ys I & II, Tactics Ogre, DQ VI and it's SLOW?
