Yup, that flan is wearing shades.

Deal with it!

It's really hard to imagine that SS will top TP for me. TP just got everything perfect in my book. I just recently replayed most of it (all but the last two dungeons), and It's just unbelievable how well it's aged. Especially since I had been playing nothing but 360 HD titles for the past year. I had just come off of Deus Ex. Technically this is a GameCube game???!!!! I've never played the gamecube version, but honestly, it kicks the crap out of most 360 games, even now. It's my perfect game. Just the right amount of gloomy darkness, the right amount of emotional drama, the right amount of uncanny bizarreness, I love that game like no other. SS looks like it may hit gameplay perfection, but from what I've seen it just doesn't "feel" much better than Wind Waker, which was just OFF for me. Also, it doesn't help that I've just been playing Xenoblade (god I hope I can finish it before Zelda comes out!) which is quite possibly the biggest, grandest game ever made. Every locale in Xenoblade could house about 4 Zelda Hyrule's in it.They say SS will be immense, but I doubt it'll feel like it after Xenoblade.

I'm sure what Xenoblade has in quantity, Zelda SS will make up for in quality.

Man it's going to be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO hard to choose between Xenoblade and Skyward Sword.

Oh wait. That's right. I live in the US and fucking NoA already made that decision for me. Well, I might have trouble setting down Fate/Ex....Fuck! I can't even finish that. There's absolutely nothing that's going to stop me from playing this on Monday morning (since I'm actually busy on Sunday).

So yeah. Continue whining about having to set Xenoblade down, and while you're at it you can remind everyone in the US about how you guys are getting The Last Story too.

They need to make a spy RPG that doesn't suck.

They need to make an rpg that doesn't suck, period

They need to make an RPG that lets you choose something other than the boyscout path and the douche bag path (and have it mean more than just altering your appearance and determining who you get to have sex with).

At the very least they should make it so that if you want to be evil you'd eventually end up on an entirely different path from being good; you know, like Langrisser where you could be the good little goddess avatar, turn coat over to the empire, or just say to hell with you all and ruin everybody's day.

OoT looks great on the 3DS. I'd say it has aged well for sure.

Now I'm debating getting Skyward Sword for Wii, or just waiting for the HD version on the Wii U.

... There's no HD version announced. It's either get it now, or wait on a HYPOTHETICAL version that could take forever to come out (do you really want to wait, say, 5 years here?)

And OoT was updated a lot visually, they just managed to hit the sweetspot between remaining faithful and updating.

There wasn't? I could have sworn there was. Oh well. It's not like I have to get it now either way. It's not going anywhere once it's released.

I'm aware of the visual update, but it looks good and it's going to be used as the definitive version of the game most likely.

You're probably thinking of the Wii U tech demo shown at E3 which consisted of a mock battle between Link and a Gohma among other things (like Sakura trees and such).

Just purchased CC. It looks great running on the PSP in full screen mode. Played for about an hour and seems like an awesome game. I may still pick up CT. Is it bad to play CC before CT?

Not really. The parts that won't make sense now still won't make sense even if you have played CT. Actually it'd probably make even more sense without having played CT first (where did Porrie get that army from anyway?).

UMD passport program outlined.

This is pretty cool.  Too bad they didn't put it together in time for the Go.

It feels good to know that Akiba's Trip will still be playable on the Vita. I just can't start the day without randomly stripping high school girls in the hopes that one of them is a vampire.

*groan* Ocarina of Time wasn't *that* good to everyone was it?

Reviews are glowing, the lowest so far has been a 90/100. :D
And yes, it's been called better than Oca in a few of 'em. ;P

At the time it was due to most attempts at 3D gaming prior to it were kinda terrible or limited to fixed perspectives or not belonging to genres that were more adaptable like the 3rd Person Action Adventure RPG genre. A lot of 3rd person perspective action games benefited massively from the lock-on feature that OoT popularized since it meant less fucking around with the camera angle all the time. The fact that it was a 3D copy of LttP also helped and it also brought the series into it's own lore rather than keeping it simple or borrowing from anime. Had there been a second (fourth if counting the BSZeldas (fifth if also counting the BS port of the Original Zelda)) SuperNES Zelda OoT wouldn't have been nearly as great of a hit as it was due to the additional attention and extra lore the series would've received (seriously, it had been five years between LA and OoT and seven years between it and LttP; no other games in the series went that long without an update; even Skyward Sword has only a five year gap from Twilight Princess and that's not counting the two DS games and the recently rereleased versions of OoT and Four Swords). If a second had come out on the SuperNES it might of either been a beautiful game like CT or an oddity like SMW2:YI and OoT probably wouldn't have held up quite as well in contrast. Also the N64 REALLY needed a good title that year to make buyers not regret not getting on the PlayStation sooner.

Been playing Tactics Ogre for PSP. Is the only way to get rare weapons from enemies now is to steal them with a Rogue? They used to just drop after a kill, now that's not the case.

Oh joy. It's FFT all over again. ELMDOR!!!!!

That said, most of my time lately has been spent fucking around with flash games since I don't really have the time for anything bigger.

Halo Anniversary Pizza.... in the UK.

Even though it's Pizza Hut, it seems terrible compared to USA-Hut. Even though Pizza Hut isn't held in any high circles here, for 10 it's decent enough. The pan pizza has nice chewy/crusty bread, the sauce is tasty, and the cheese is gooey. And it's consistent.

But that shit there looks downright terrible.

(love the om nom nom noise)

Worth pointing out that Pizza Hut pizzas also provide enough grease to fully lubricate a person. Great in a pinch but it makes the shit slide right on through you if you try to eat the stuff.

Urge to buy Zero no Kiseki rising... must resist.

I'd wait till CrossSeeD gets around to it unless you plan on buying the localized version as well in order to support the continuing localization efforts.

Remember you ARE the main demographic outside of Japan. It's your duty to support localizations whenever and wherever you can so that we may all enjoy.

But if you're that willing to buy the same game twice then go ahead.

If that's the case then why not go all the way and call it Transfall&Rollout.
3882  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: BioWare's next new game is... on: November 07, 2011, 10:14:54 PM
Why do I have a sneaking suspicion that it's going to be based off of something written by Homer. The Odyssey seems like prime mythology to shamelessly borrow from while pretending to bring something to the table beyond the lesbian three-way and the snark.

I'm a little late hearing the news of more RPGs coming soon to PSN. Everyone talks about how great Chrono Trigger is around here but I have to admit I never had the opportunity to play it before. Should I check this out now on PSN or go straight for Chrono Cross? Or do you recommend both. Heck, I'm still having a blast witih Front Mission 3.

I'd either go for the Wii's VC version or the DS version since the PSN version contains lengthy load times.

Another way to put it is that it's Code Geass mk II.

Though whether or not this is a good thing will have to be seen since CG itself went off rails in a completely spectacular fashion, and not in the way the writers intended (to have the plot go off rails on since like 65% of anime has this tendency to end by flying off the rails and this will most likely too).
