Looks like the next Tales of PlayStations(s) will soon be revealed.

Should point at that in this thread WAY back when I said Gabriel was super responsive.  Maybe it was the PC controls or I was drinking way too much scotch back then, but he really isn't as maneuverable as I thought he was three years ago.  Blocking just never feels good, and you'll often roll right into attacked and end up hit because the invincibility timing is all sorts of screwey. 

Maybe it was because you were coming off of GoW3 and compared to that, this felt super responsive.

Just because the comapny says it is canon doesn't mean it has to change your own personal canon.

If Persona fans are gonna start doing this then the fanbase is gonna end up like the one from Silent Hill did; A mess not much people want to take part of.

You're saying this as if it isn't already the case (to be fair, all fanbases have their extreme elements, even Persona as well as SMT on the whole, it is the nature of the beast).

I know link is a girly elf boy, but I'm not sure the plan of having him impersonate the princess will go well.

If only his hair were pink...

Worth noting that this game does not have release-date delivery from Amazon (I'm so used to that now that it surprises me when it's not an option...).  Furthermore it's being released on the week of Thanksgiving, meaning that even if it gets shipped Tuesday it's probably not going to be delivered until the following Monday...
How dare you doubt Amazon! They will never fail! *hugs his copy of Ys IV that was delivered from Amazon today*

.....Now if only I had a Vita.

But is yours a Collectors' Edition? *hugs his Collectors' Edition of Ys IV*

.....Now if only I had a Vita.

I can see why you would think that, the way crystallization is supposed to work, a few of those shapes would be nearly impossible to achieve in nature.


Peculiar phrasing, yes.

Gamer porn (it's a wicked collection, sfw, in case I misled)

It's days like these that I miss browsing the Retro Gaming Megathread on SA.

Also that is one hell of a Nintendo fanboy. I love how his, what I can only assume, entire collection of non-Nintendo games occupy this one little rack and have to share a corner with more of this guy's Nintendo stuffs.

Also also, that guy has like only the western releases (except for maybe that one little corner next to the misc. shelf with, what I can only assume are Famicom games). And his Gameboy collection is displaying his Megaman II cart next to his Metroid 2 cart and if he was really serious he'd have his MMV cart on display instead, if he even has one, the plebeian).

SMTxFE (if it still exists and hasn't been kiboshed by the Sega buyout).
X (but I doubt it'll be ready before 2015).
SSBfor (either WiiU or 3DS or possibly both).
TitSSC (the SC stands for Second Cup).
Bravely Default (because it looks like Final Fantasy doing what FF does best but playtested to hell and back).
Child of Light (because this looks promising as all hell).
D4 (because Deadly Premonition was just that good).
Drakengard 3 (because it looks like they'll finally pair the :wtc: writing with decent gameplay).
MGSV (its like all the odd numbered MGS titles are the ones really worth playing while the even ones are more incremental and story focused).
Shantae 3 (will you come out already).
Kirby 3DS (looks solid).
Natural Doctrine (yeah, this looks fairly generic and I'm probably the only one who still remembers it but I can always hope for another VC or AtL).
Farewell Umihara Kawase (and again, I'm probably the only one who remembers or cares about this).
Deception IV (if it ever leaves Japan).
And some of those Kickstarters (you know who you are).


Looking forward to this. Not expecting a lot but it should be fun. Might wait for price drop though.

Isn't this already out though? Either way, you're not missing much outside of "SOMETHING'S HAPPENING! IT MUST BE A PARADOX!!! :byodame:".

I'll just be over here, horrified at this DLC costume in particular.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were all still alive. They owed Lightning a costume for completing a side-quest, and this was the best they could come up with. Now if all of them were equipped with Snow Mufflers then Lightning would literally become the Juggernaut Bitch! She could just bullrush Behemoths and cast them aside like blowup dolls.

Like so.

This game made me think of something kind of cool regarding the overall Zelda timeline. Considering the titles where you can upgrade the Master Sword, that thing must keep getting stronger and stronger the further into the timeline you go, which means the "Forces of evil" of the month are also getting stronger and stronger.

But I believe there is another level to the Master Sword. Let's call it, Master Sword 2.

Evil turned Lightning? The true final boss revealed!

Well isn't my face red.

May this adorable baby duckling take the attention of me in what little ways it can!

It's too late to duck and cover.

I apologize if this has already been brought up, but will these always be on Saturdays?

Ideally, yes. Trouble is that nobody seems to remember when the Saturday in question rolls around and nobody shows up for the quiz (that, and some of us have trouble getting to computers for the appointed time for one reason or another).

And while I think Ocarina of Time's version of Lost Woods is incredibly catchy, I find the SNES/3DS version so much more elegant and befitting of a place that houses 'The Master Sword'.

Do you mean Saria's Song, or the random cawing, chirping, and Moblin grunting noises? And do you do Darunia's dance, shouting "hot, Hot, HOT!" whenever you hear it?

I didn't have time to watch Family Guy, but I heard they killed off the best character??  Anyone else liking American Dad's humour way more??  It was slow to warm up though.

They killed off Adam West?

It's not drastically different but it has a lot of details the movie lacked, and it doesn't make the concessions for artsiness that the movie did.

Code for "you don't stare at a guy drifting in spaces for minutes on end" ergo book is better by default.

Oh that's definitely part of it. In the book he's basically going past huge fleets of abandoned ships belonging to long dead civilizations. It's super cool and it's obvious they did what they did in the movie because special effects at the time weren't up to snuff for /that/. But it pervades the rest of the novel as well. Like the intro with the monkeys is another big one.

Yeah, the whole flying into Jupiter scene was very much a case of the technology at the time being woefully inadequate for what they were trying to depict. That said, White Room scene was clearly poor pacing though. And with that said, and in its defense, scenes like watching the co-pilot drift off into the endless space wouldn't have worked nearly as well if less time was shown of the guy just drifting out of view. That shit's downright scary in the same way as getting buried alive or falling down into something and being unable to get back up in terms of ways to die.

Getting back on topic a bit, this list is invalid because nobody considered The Great Cave Offensive from Kirby's SuperStar Ultra and that very much had battles inspired by RPGs.

Got around to watching Thor yesterday night. Solid movie for the most part, Loki steals the show whenever he's on the screen, the fight scene at the end between Thor and the 9th Doctor was handled well enough for what it was trying to do, and it was nice to see more focus on Asgard this time around rather than more Earth. Only issues was that the 9th Doctor felt overshadowed at times compared to the Aether infused guy and Loki and that most of Thor's posse didn't really see a lot of action. Silf had enough screen time and maybe Obi-wan (or is that Bilbo Baggins?), but the rest only really showed up in the early fight and during the escape scene (except for the Samurai lookin dude who only showed up after the fight for a reaction shot during the Convergence).
