I'm having a lot of fun playing Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, even if I suck at it. Being killed by a Popo = fail. :(

Currently doing all the one and two stars quests.

The more I hear about this game, the more it depresses me; although that's mostly from the peanut gallery comments about "hoping Shinjiro lives in this version" and "If MShe doesn't have all lesbian relationships I won't play the game".


It's like nobody actually understands why the original game was so good.

For many it was just a dungeon crawler with dating elements. All the dilemmas and emotional conflicts of the characters go straight to second term when you can "OMG TOTALLY DATE THAT CHARACTER AM GONNA WRITE A FANFIC WHERE THEY ALL GET PREGNANT!"

Sad, but true.

Sometimes I think it would have been better if Atlus released just a visual novel/dating sim game with the P3 cast. You know, a spin-off of a spin-off.

Best news I've had this week.

And wtf, DQIII?

Crap, it's a DQIII port for mobile phones. :(

I got through some floors of Obelisk today in Nocturne but I got sick of dying after the 60th floor. Should really just, you know, switch demons and Magatama but a break seeme d abetter idea. :P Also got to level 13 of that bloody puzzle and gave up (again).

I gave up around level 10 or 11 and did the rest with the help of a guide. That puzzle is fucking annoying.

During the initial hours of FFXII I somehow thought that Larsa was a girl.

I played both so…


It's pretty much your sRPG, but once you get to attack enemies, it works like a turn based RPG, with battles in 1st person. The story was engrossing, so much that I beat the game in two weeks. Game in some areas can require some grinding. It has multiple endings, so it has a nice replay value.


It's more shmup than a sRPG. Enemies can only hurt the Wisp, so you have to dodge like crazy, especially in later levels. You should complete the tutorial first in order to learn the basics of how to attack, charge your special, etc. The story is disconnected, told in a disorderly fashion, instead of the linearity found in Devil Survivor. Also, unlike DS, there won't be much of character development. You can find bits of background info about each unit by talking to your knights and NPCs during battle. There is no grinding in this game, since you don't level up by beating enemies. It has multiple endings too (and beware of the fucking scene #23).

tl;dr If you have the opportunity, get both. However, if you can only get one, I would go with Devil Survivor.

for smt games if there's no default name i find a japanese name list and just pick stuff. sometimes this works poorly since i didn't read my P3 manual and named my MC Aki and it's like HI AKIHIKO THIS IS AKI. WELL FUCK.

LOL, something similar happend to me in P4. I named the main Daisuke and guess what? There was that soccer club dude name Daisuke.

The World Ends With You and Devil Survivor. Beat both in like two weeks or less.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow despite the BS stylus crap.

Oh God, someone that agrees with me. I've got so many game overs during the last boss battle because I couldn't draw a pentagram (or whatever it was) right. >_>

What. The. Hell.

That came out of nowhere.

Holy crap. Lightning has a kid!?

I doubt it. That would actually be kind of interesting if that was the case though.

That's the kind of relationship I'd like to see more in RPGs, i.e. main character has a son/daughter. The only game that comes to my mind when I think about it is Dragon Quest V.

It's not a localization problem, the Japanese version sounds exactly the same.

And I still think it's awful.

Atoli from .hack//G.U. - Keeps preaching about that Moon-whatever-guild and how the guild leader is almighty and blahblahblah. When Haseo finally tells her to STFU she acts all emo. Geez. At least she is less annoying during volume 3.

I used to have a high tolerance to annoying characters, but it seems to be decreasing as the years pass by.

Teddie was ok, he got a ton of development near the end of the game and I didn't mind his lame jokes. Can't say the same for Rise and Yosuke... both annoy me so much. Pop idol and horny boy? Uhh, no thanks.

Tidus. Besides the fact he looks like a child on sugar high, there was the whole HAHAHAHA scene. I've never facepalmed so much while playing a game (worst, I quit playing soon after).

Anise (Tales of the Abyss) was mildly annoying too, since I'm not too fond of the "children acting as an adult" thing.

Beat SMT:DS, got the Gin/Haru ending. Fantastic game, the final battle music was incredible. Going to start a New Game+ soon.
