Dark Souls - UnlockFPS in DSFix does miracles, my aging computer went from 15 to 25~35 fps. Let's see if the game is worth the hype.

New Vegas – The Strip and the meeting with Benny were underwhelming. I keep hoping something in the main quest will top Dead Money in terms of writing/atmosphere but no luck so far; maybe OWB or Lonesome Road will. Anyway, I have to deal with the Brotherhood but have no idea how to proceed. Kudos to Obsidian for not leaving an easy way out.

Why can't Mozilla get a Firefox update right? Version 21 had rendering issues, now it's DPI weirdness. I think they are secretly trying to drive people away. Maybe I should check out Chrome...

I will however be animating my "retro gaming weekend" routine starting this week. Deliberating between "Mother 3" and "Dragon Quest 6". I have no experience with either. The draw of Mother 3 for me is the fact that I loved earthbound. Dragon Quest 6, on the other hand, would be my first experience with the dragon quest franchise (something I've been meaning to get to for years). Leaning toward Dragon Quest right now on account of being in the mood for some classic Akira Toriyama crafted characters and whatnot.

You can't go wrong with either of them. Dragon Quest 6 is a solid game, even more so if you enjoy job systems. If you like it enough, check out Dragon Quest 5.

New Vegas - Dead Money completed. Despite the criticisms, I enjoyed it a lot. The main mechanic wasn't as terrible as people made out to be; it only got annoying during the final area because there were radios everywhere and I had trouble finding their locations. Otherwise, the intriguing story and charismatic companions, some even more interesting than those in the main campaign, made up for any possible failings gameplay-wise. Not sure if I should tackle Odd World next or, you know, enter The Strip.

New Vegas - I got an anti-material rifle and the thing sure can pack a punch. I think it's the first weapon I've bought since the beginning... or was it the sniper rifle? Anyway, finished the Honest Hearts DLC, which was pretty good. I'm going to explore the Mojave a bit before hitting up Dead Money next.

And what about the nightkin wearing a wig? The wackiness won't stop!

New Vegas - I was peacefully exploring an area when I got blown up to bits by missiles. Eventually I found out what was happening but it was completely unexpected. I think that's why I'm having so much fun playing the game: it's packed full with all kinds of random and crazy stuff.

You mentioned Fallout 3, but did you try New Vegas too? I thought F3 was terribad while NV solved all problems I had with the original (Gamebryo crappiness aside).

Fuck the Amala Labyrinth. That is all.

Edit: No, seriously.

So I died twice in the second Kalpa. My third round I almost made it to the end of the second kalpa, but I just got unlucky with a back attack which the enemy decided to attack my MC. THIS GAME IS GREAT.

Yeah, I had terrible luck too. The things that helped me the most down there where: my beefed up Daisoujou; a special demon I bought somewhere in the Labyrinth which came with a bunch of useful “field” skills; the MC learning Mediarahan (fuck that minigame shit though). Keep pushing, the Labyrinth is one of the best parts, specially the later levels.

To keep on topic: I've beat Ceadeus in MH3U. Hammered his face off and managed to repel it with 3:00 left in the clock. Not bad. Breezing through the Guild LR stuff right now.

Is Devil Survivor Overclocked worth $40? I've played through the original once, way back in 2009/2010. I don't care much for the VA, but the 8th days seems interesteing.

Or should I save the money and hit You Tube instead?

Honestly, the extra days weren't worth it. I felt that one or two of them actually harmed the experience more than helped.  The developers did add some small things that made the presentation superior to the original - and not just the voice acting - but if you've played the original, you're not going to find a ton of new content, simply an overall cleaner experience.

Yeah, I thought so too and decided to pass. Thanks for the help!

ME3 - Doing a bunch of stuff on the citadel.

I have to ask - why would they make so much effort to pain Cerberus in shades of grey in ME2 and make them so cartoonishly evil in ME3?

It's even weirder if you consider that in ME1 they were evil incarnate. The writers couldn't make up their mind.

Speaking of Mass Effect, I gave in and bought the Citadel DLC. It's silly, cheesy, packed full with fanservice and awkwardness, but who cares? It was fun. The villain was better than the Cereal Killer too. Well, the bar was pretty low to begin with, but still...

Not sure if it's worth to get the remaining DLC though. Probably not.

No idea if someone posted before, but acapella versions of vgm music:

Castlevania - Bloody Tears
Chrono Trigger - Corridors of Time
Mega Man 2 - Dr. Wily Stage
Street Fighter 2 - Guile Theme

Fantastic stuff.

YES!

I wonder why Atlus didn't mention classic mode from the start?

Edit: Oh god, there seems to be an old bgm option too. Great!

Check both 2000 and 3000 systems. The interlace was sometimes noticeable to me in the 3k models, but I'm the kind of person who was bothered by the larger horizontal gaps between pixels in the top 3DS XL screen. I'd also recommend you nab a Sony stamina battery pack if you end up getting a PSP and liking it enough. You'll never worry about being near an outlet again.

I thought we would only see a localization next year, what a surprise! 2013 is rocking so far.

I know, it's the idea of a set party and a story/character-driven game that turns me off a bit. I would have preferred a straight up EO1 remake.  Still, I gotta keep in mind it's a spinoff and very little information is known at the moment.

I just hope it won't have an effect on future main series games. Minimalism is good.
