I loved DA:O so hard, but I too feel conflicted over this news. I like the idea of having a cinematic experience like Mass Effect in that there is a single, pre-determined main character, but I will miss the Origins. I mean, I know there's enough differences (for me anyway) that'll keep DA2 from being a Fantasy Mass Effect, but I still kinda wanna see how it develops. I don't wanna start bitchin' yet, too early to make a call on this one.

I really really like Futurama. It's one of the few shows I can watch over and over and not get sick, and I've always found it ridiculously clever. I'm pleased as punch it's back on, and I really enjoyed these last few episodes. So far it looks like they're keeping

Code:
Fry and Leela's relationship

and not gone back and retcon'd it or something. Not sure if that's a spoiler, but just wanted to be safe.

Beat Sakura Wars 1 for the first time, and got the Sumire ending. Replaying it now, but dunno if I wanna choose Kohran or Maria. Also finished Agarest Generation 1 about a week ago, and chose Elaine. Kinda in the mood for a good shooter now...

Obviously: Final Fantasy VI

Ditto on this. That or Suikoden 1.

Started Suikoden VI and got up to shortly after recruiting Lucretia.

A spark of hope was utterly dashed.

I have been playing The Dark Spire. Needless to say I have been dying quite often. I managed to get through both Etrian Odyssey games but this game may hate me even more.

Gotta learn to start proofreading my posts more. >.<

Started Suikoden V and got up to shortly after recruiting Lucretia. Now I am putting it on hold for Agarest War. Near the end of the 1st Generation, and shooting for Elaine. Just gotta beat this durned final boss and then I can move on. I'm really enjoying it and the mousepad has provided plenty of sophomoric, immature laughs. :P

Edited for my idiocy. :P

Huh, I've always known it as Touchdown Jesus. Poor thing's up with the angels now.

Got my Sakura Taisen 1&2 import. I finished Episode 2 on 1 and have been having a good time. The translation guide doesn't translate all the text, so I'm sorta railroaded on what I can and cant do. Also, it functions as a walkthrough and tells me what responses are best for which girls, so I feel kinda cheap on choosing the best ones. But all in all, well done guide for a (so-far) fun game.

I'm pretty happy FF13 is linear. After the decision-making and sidequest heavy Dragon Age: Origins and Mass Effect 2, I'm ready for a game where I don't have to stress about every little thing I do and can just sit back and enjoy the story without any anxiety. Not that I'm saying what DA:O and ME2 did were bad, I'm just looking for a nice change of pace.
731  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Getting psyched for Sakura Wars ~So Long, My Love~ on: March 04, 2010, 08:23:23 PM
Soo, I wanted to get the the full (or fullest possible for a non-Japanese speaker) Sakura Wars experience and decided to import the compilation of 1 & 2 for the PSP. I wouldn't have done it if I hadn't found out that there are translation guides for the games. They're the Kayama ones on GameFAQS, which I'm assuming are the most famous and/or most used ones for the games. To anyone who used these guides to make it through 1 & 2, how easy was it? Was it tedious to constantly switch from game screen to translation screen?

Did what I said I was gonna to and beat Mass Effect 2 today. The final decision was definitely one of those ones where I had to pause and think about it.
Code:
I chose to destroy the base, and I felt pretty good about it, since the Illusive Man obviously has an ulterior motive.
Wasn't terribly impressed with the ending though, but the last shot hopefully bodes epicness in the 3rd.

Then I played Resident Evil 2 on the PSP, and it is still very good, graphics and awkward controls be damned. I know it's a worn argument, but I do agree that the controls help add to the creepiness. And I lol'd when I was reading the difital game manual that was left totally unchanged. It even had that Capcom points thing in the upper right corner of the back page that you were supposed to cut out and send in or something.

Also: KillerArmoire, I love your signature to death, just sayin'. No pun intended either. :P

I didn't really watch much of the Olympics, but I was at work today when Canada won the hockey game and the T.V. was on and people were watching. The first thing I hear was, "Yeah you won, but we can still nuke you off the map." I wanted to throw something at him. >:(

PST was misogynistic? How so? I'm not disagreeing with you, it's just been years since I've played it, so whatever misogynistic elements there were I missed.

Women in the lower ward are sort of objectified and treated as second class citizens in the game...

... except it's made clear on several occasions that this is a very bad thing and a product of the corrupt regime you're sort of going up against.

Also a lot of the woman in the game are fairly scantily clad, which is clearly far more misogynistic than forcing them to all wear burkas.

Okay, I can see that now. I was like 10 the last time I played, so I think the themes kinda went over my head. :P

The Witcher - another hour or two.  Fortunately (?) an issue with an NPC sent me back to an earlier save, so I apparently hadn't used my talent points yet.  I also wandered around a bit to get some additional stuff done prior to advancing the main plot.  Despite the fact the game clearly suffers from Planescape: Torment syndrome in terms of its misogynistic presentation, that hasn't been too much of an issue, and at least unlike PST, it is there to serve a purpose in this setting.

Haven't played anything on account of research paper, but I'm planning on turning in a rough draft tomorrow and finally getting around to finishing Mass Effect 2. After that, probably Resident Evil 2 or 3. Maybe both in a marathon.
