Why are people so convinced that because DS1 got a port with extras to the 3DS that DS2 will get one as well? I feel like the DS1 port was only a special case.

It probably is, just like Persona 3 Portable was, at least until Persona 4 The Golden came around.

It's not like you could say that there's been some kind of SMT spammage going on or anything like that.

While a long shot, I'm still going to wait for the 3DS port instead. Especially since I have a lot on my plate right now (Grow IV, Dept. Heaven IV, Xenoblade, Teh Last Story, Grand Knight History (if this game ever gets its act together), the 3DS port of Devil Survivor 1, and some other things that aren't coming to mind as immediately as they should right now).

I'm happy to see a good review of it, especially to someone who also thought Ghibli's been kinda weak.
I *will* watch it, just unlikely I'd make too big an effort to pursue it...  I'm sure it'll be better than Ponyo (I freaking hated that movie... fucking Kiki was more entertaining and she delivered dolls to old people).

I kinda wanna see Ghibli do something more adult again.  I'm not a big Ghibli fan, but I do take a lot of it back when I start talking about Princess Mononoke.

Man what are you talking about? Ponyo was hilarious in the theaters if you were aware that Taken had just come out a short while prior. I spent the better part of that movie expecting Sasuke to call up Ponyo's dad who consequently tells him to return his daughter and bygones will be bygones but that if he doesn't then curbs will be stomped and shits will be wrecked. Granted the rest of the movie was a nice warm feel good snore but it at least had something.

I hated nearly every second of it.  Boring otaku bait narrative, unlikeable cast of cunts (except Sahz, he was pretty great), ten thousand miles of dull corridors, reliance on a database to make sense out of the shit unfolding before you, and so and so and so on.  I played it up to the point everyone was saying "Sure, all you have to do to get through most of the game is push up on your controller, but it eventually OPENS UP," and that great bastion of open space MIGHT have been as big as the Calm Lands in FFX.  I said fuck it and shelved it. :P

Battle system was fun, but not so much that it was worth sitting through all that bullshit.

Even those Calm Lands aren't really as advertised to the point that I'd say they were more like DQ1's Alefgard instead. Because once you get there the only things that won't end you are slimes and small critters until you've leveled enough to cross a bridge into the next level of encounter zone. The Gran Pulse experience basically devolves into running from hunt to hunt until they lead you out of there because the game's disguising the fact that all you're really doing is powerleveling your party so that everybody can have their five segmented ATB gauge and their third accessory slot by having you run from one hunt destination to another while fighting everything along the way (which is conveniently lined with encounters that you can handle for a reasonable gain of CP for when you're expected to run down through those areas).

So, unh....here's a thing.

No, bacon is Xseed's specialty. This is Aksys.

So it's ham instead, not bacon.

More like ham sausage instead (I refer you to the first image on the spine of box for the thrust of my reference).

New Trailer

Wait, Marth!?

Welp, suddenly the two FEDS games make sense now, as it's FE3 all over again. Even if that isn't Marth, chances are pretty good that this game's set in the same region that FEs 1, 3, BS, DS1, and DS2 were.
It's Ephraim looking WAY closer to Marth. It all makes sense.

I doubt that is the case. His hair isn't spiky enough to be Ephraim.

Compare this and this with these three images taken from the video. At the very least I would wager that we're looking at Marth's descendant.

Besides I would wager that Ephraim's too busy rebuilding Renais with his sister (nudge nudge). Also he uses spears only which was kinda his thing as it gives him WTA over his sister (wink wink).

Edit: Oh and by the way; European release confirmed. Come on XSeeD, bring it on home.

So then....about those limited edition details?

Red Dwarf is only second to The Simpsons to me, but I digress.  I've been watching Lots of Breaking Bad lately before and after work.  Great Stuff!!

Man new Season of Red Dwarf later this year, I hope its better than the Back To Earth special.

To be fair to that special though, Carbug was hilarious and I want one.

I felt that FFXIII-1 was basically the tech demo for the game that would eventually become FFXIII-2.

You're making a mountain out of a mole hill, you made slightly antagonistic remarks (though Aeolus isn't really fully innocent either) and were warned to avoid doing so, whether you think Ash is innocent of this or not (he certainly is in this thread) doesn't change the fact he was right to tell you to stop it. Now let's drop this or I'll lock the thread.

Well if that's the case then I'll apologize for my previous remarks and hopefully end this unfortunate derail.

Besides I can't really stand by my original opinion on this game's proposed MU anyway since, from what I've seen so far, this game's going for something closer to what FEVII used rather than FEDS2's MU (i.e. a strategist that you can field rather than an actual playable character). And in all honesty I kinda preferred FEDS2's version of the MU versus what I've seen thus far since you could do more with your MC's appearance aside from giving him/her more/less stubbier legs and different color hair + voice in the vain effort to add in any redeeming value to the otherwise awful character design.

That's nothing when you've seen organ printers (they're like 3D Printers but with living tissue instead of paper).

Should I watch "a bit of fry and laurie?"

oh god yes

I've been rewatching father ted, red dwarf, and blacks books.  Britcom's really cheer me up when I'm down.

father ted and black books are just aces.

And Red Dwarf is Ace Rimmer.

God I miss Public Broadcasting. I just can't seem to accept any substitutes.

I was wondering if I should put this in the mmo's topic or here...

Anyone check out that new show "Level up" yet? I dunno if it's good or not, but it's probably the most realistic representation of video gamers' dream lives. They did a decent job of hitting the nerdy lingo too, it's like reading through some of gamefaqs forum board topics for modern warfare. Not saying it's a good show, it's just funny to watch and see what we all looked like at one point or another.

From what I saw, it looked quite stupid. But then I did miss the MMO part which makes sense in the "So we gave a bunch of Disney channel rejects Nerf weapons and told them to Tweet Speak at CGIs and called it a show.".

So when did you watch Mask of the Phantasm?

Robocop is awesome. I hear that a remake is in the works which means there's a 75% chance that they'll destroy another classic:/.  I watched Priest last night. Pretty much middle of the road but they could certainly expand the universe if they so chose.

As long as people are being reduced to hamburger, cheesy special effects are being used, one liners are being spouted, and camera work doesn't consist of that retarded shaky crap that never lets you see anything that's happening, then you have nothing to worry about. Bonus points if they can somehow work in 80's hair, Detroit currently being a desolate wasteland, and the Internet in a non retarded manner.
