In other related phone news... people are lined up for the iPhone 6 already in NYC. The debut event isn't supposed to take place until September 9th and yet here are these Apple fans devoted in sleeping bags and such. Pictures included in the link.

Colony 9 from Xenoblade Chronicles. I liked climbing the top of different ledges just to look down to see the panoramic views of the town from the hills. Not to mention the music of day and night of this town.

Samsung Gear VR hands-on: Note 4 goes 3D with Oculus http://wp.me/pj722-1rw1

I don't have a Samsung smart phone or any smart phone for that matter, but I would like to see this tech in action. I like how the phone just snaps into the Occulus Rift headpiece and it becomes instant VR. I wonder how disorienting it is to play/watch something on this device after a lengthy matter of time.

...is anyone getting the WiiU one at all?? I feel like everyone is on the the 3DS.

I've got the 3DS, but none of my friends have that portable console or the Wii U for that matter since they're diehard 1st person shoot ps4 and xbone fans, so I'll be getting the Wii U game version so we can have a few beers together and mash buttons. It'll be the best bros-night-in ever, haha.

Great news for fans who missed out on Xenoblade the first time around on the Wii with the limited international (& U.S.) release. I remember hearing the game was going for close to $100 USD when copies ran out.  I played over 100+ hours on Xenoblade and if this game is released before Xenoblade Chronicles X it'll def. hold me up before the sequel comes out.

The bad news? The game won't play on existing 3DS, 3DSXL models. Like the RPGfan articles says, we'll all have to upgrade for the needed CPU power boost improvement. I do like the look of the new 3DS and 3DSXL (called 3DS LL in Japan), especially with this multi-colored buttons which is a nice salute to Super Nintendo controllers of my childhood, but I just bought my first 3DSXL in February. I'm hoping GameStop or some other company has a trade in/upgrade to incentive so I can replay this amazing title again on a portable console.

In other news Nintendo Direct this morning also featured a trailer for Shulk's appearance in the upcoming Smash Bros Brawl for 3DS and Wiii U. Pretty faithful adaption, but I think his eyes/face look a little off from his Xenoblade Chronicles look, but I'm just being a little nitpicky here. I can't wait to play this game with my ol' high school buddies when we get together.

Wasn't sure if we have a movie news thread, but I couldn't believe the news when I heard this announcement today:

Keep in mind Underworld: Awakening came out only two years ago and the original Underworld first premiered in 2003. I just wish Hollywood would let these movie franchises rest when they exhaust their ideas. Reboot shouldn't be their go to push button.

Wow.. Sounds incredible. I remember thinking how much of the map areas I explored in Xenoblade and to think that the sequel's map will be five times bigger is a lot to take in. I was hoping for a spring/summer release, but I wonder with this tidbit revealed that'll be closer to Christmas time next year.

Thanks to RPGFan, I became a fan of RPGs again.

Ten or so years ago, I sold most of my ps1-2 games around the time I graduated college and didn't play RPGs for quite some time. Reading the reviews here helped me get back into RPGs and discover my passion for them. I couldn't imagine what I would have missed out on if I had passed up Xenoblade Chronicles or even giving the FFXIII series a try again after I got semi-jaded on FFXIII-1 to discovering how much fun FFXIII-2 really was.

Recently this year I've become a convert to 3DS rpgs (starting with Bravely Default) and then I started getting to know more people on here. Some solid advice from members here on strategy for gameplay that paid off when my players felt underdeveloped or feeling stuck.

I've been enjoying SMTIV lately and oddly enough it's the first SMT title I've played since Persona 1 back on the old ps1. I'm eagerly looking forward to SMT x Fire Emblem whenever that sees the light of day.

It's also fun having other interests in common with you guys on here besides rpgs like anime, football, movies, tv shows, music, etc.

Half way through A Dance With Dragons right now. You guys convinced me on the Black Company so I got that book and Books of the South collection yesterday in the mail. Looking forward to reading those.

I was off work yesterday due to my wife having knee surgery. She's stubborn, and hates asking for help, so the next 4-6 weeks should be fun.

My son started 8th grade on Monday. How the HELL did that happen? Makes me feel old.

Ouch, have fun with that. My wife spent the summer at physical therapy twice a week to fix her broken lower back. I'm not sure if it was the sciatic nerve, but the lower back injury caused by landing on her foot awkwardly traveled up her IT band to her lower back where the pain swelled. Next week she'll finally start PT recovery once a week (down from twice a week), but her modus operandi has been stretching and doing resistance band exercises 15 mins before bed followed by an ice pack for 15 mins every night. I've had to do all the muscle work (which is fine being a guy). Patience, smile and empathy will go a long way and maybe some laughter together when your wife starts to feel over the recovery. Good luck!

Thanks for empathy guys on my thumbnail. It's not completely coated black, just a bit in the middle, so there's a chance I won't lose the nail or have to pop it, but we'll see. Hopefully the swelling will ease and the thumbnail will heal on its own. Cheers!

Did something this morning that I haven't done since I was a little kid.

I slammed my thumb on a door. This door happened to be my car door. I even heard a "semi-click" sound before the pain sent a signal to my brain.

Worst part wasn't the pain. The worst part was actually screaming in embarrassingly high pitch notes.

My wife unfortunately was there to witness all this humor in the passenger seat and make fun of me. I told her I was trying not to wake up the neighbors at 6:45 AM.

I have a nice black/blood stain over the nail as a friendly reminder to not rush leaving for work in the morning. Fortunately, I didn't break my finger and I can still bend it ok. Just had to ice it for 15 minutes to get the swelling down and 2 Ibuprofens.
