Xenoblade Chronicles is the best JRPG I've played in over a decade. Only regret I had was not waiting for the Wii U to come out (so I could enjoy the upgraded resolution) after I already played 100+ hours on the Wii. Epic gameplay, exploration, soundtrack, uber-bosses, story, side-quests (if you don't mind doing a bunch) and of course the English accent voice-overs were amusing.

Finished Steins:Gate. Coolest anime I've seen in a while. I loved the time machine theme to the series. The Legend of Legendary Heroes is next on tap for me.

Sorry I might have been a little harsh on the story. It's an interesting way to play out the narrative. The story is growing on me, I just get confused with all the time jumping and alternate timelines.

Doing a semi-speed run through FFXIII-2. Think I just finished episode 3. Decent game if the story is ignored and attention is focused on gameplay. I like the tri-play with monsters. After that it's either onto Lightning Returns or take a break from the FFXIII trilogy altogether and jump into Bravely Default.

That's like the best way to show affection. No, really.

Haha, thanks! And I'll PM you my FC to be friends once I get more of a grip on the 3DS.

That's a hell of a Valentines gift! I don;t know anyone that spends that kind of money on Heart Day. Wow.

No joke. I was kinda surprised. She usually doesn't splurge on me like that. Good thing I had my romantic bases/sentimental route covered for v-day, haha.

Wife her again!!!

Thanks Dice. She's a keeper. :)

Woo hoo! Wife bought me a 3DS and Bravely Default for Valentines' day.

Glad to see the game is making some progress. I wonder if there's a snowball chance we'll get it translated w/voice overs and published and gift wrapped under my Christmas tree this year. One of my favorite quotes from XC, "Dunban: So that's how it is.  Giving up the sword already?"

The new gameplay video made me think of this funny:

I upped my pledge from $20 to $50 the other day, but couldn't push myself to get the "Kickstarter Special Character Pledge". I figured if I want the two extra classes I could purchase them for $5/piece instead (I think that's the cost, but not sure...) of doing another leap to $80 when the game comes out. Getting to $600k today was bittersweet. I was hoping for more enthusiasm on both sides with more gamer pledges and developer activity throughout the funding process. Would have liked to see it on Vita or 3DS as well, but I'll manage with the PC version. Best of luck to the Playdek team. I hope their vision becomes fine tuned post Kickstarter campaign.

I played 90+ hours in FFXIII, but got stuck at the final boss area several years ago. I had to resort to watching YouTube for the ending after grinding frustration and burnout.

I held out on buying FFXIII-2 after the reviews were mixed back in January 2012.

Recently, I have to admit I caved in and pre-ordered FFXIII: Lightning Returns after Gamestop announced DLC to get Lightning's Samurai armor and Cloud Solder First Class armor w/buster sword. I also just picked up FFXIII-2 on Amazon for a great price of $16, so I'll give FFXIII-2 a spin before I jump into Lightning Returns.

I've played every FF game growing up to the present with the exception of the online games. Yet... I'm little disheartened by all the poor reviews I've seen published around the web. I'll try to give Square-Enix the benefit of the doubt with Lightning's sequels and make up my mind of the series as a whole once I'm spent more time with the sequels.

Have fun playing the game rpgfans! I look forward to reading your reaction to the gameplay experience in this thread.

So if this Kickstarter doesn't get funded in 3 days... will they go back to the drawing board to develop more gameplay on their own dime and then attempt a relaunch on Kickstarter when their game looks more polished concept wise? Speaking of gameplay, I noticed they posted a Q&A update about gameplay, but sadly with no screenshots of said gameplay. Arg!

I'm not familiar with what typically happens to projects that were close to their goal benchmark but fail to get funded. All I know is that I won't get charged for my pledge if they fail to complete their pledge goal deadline of $600,000. I've supported two Kickstarter projects ("Shovel Knight" and "Shadowgate") in the past year or so and both were funded with release dates coming out this year.

Oh, and that's great that the composer Sakimoto jumped on board despite not landing anywhere near his original stretch goal price.

I hate to beat a dead horse, but I tend to have to agree to the above posts... They're not going to meet their approaching goal deadline of being funded 100% next week according to Kicktraq by a margin of 4%.

At first I was worried they weren't going to get their stretch goal of nabbing Hitoshi Sakimoto for the OST, but now I'm worried about Unsung Story getting fully funded at all.

I also agree they should salvage the project and relaunch when their vision is met with more progress and team agreement on the direction they want to take the TRPG.

I won't pull my pledge, yet I'll just have to hope they burn the proverbial midnight oil this weekend and next week for impressive daily updates with gameplay, music samples and/or character design artwork.

They've made it this far with spoken word and name dropping talent. Now it's time to see if they've produced some wow factor to get gamers who've been skeptical and on the fence to pledge further monetary support to fund this spiritual successor to Final Fantasy Tactics.

For anyone interested that hasn't read the story on the homepage today: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Expansion Announced http://rpgfan.com/news/2013/1674.html.

Thoughts? Personally, I was a little disappointed that only one bonus character class was announced: The Crusader. There had been speculation that the paladin would return after some rumors surfaced. The Crusader has similar features of a paladin. For one he uses a shield and some techniques with that for offense. The story seems alright judging from the teaser/trailer. I like the fact that they're going darker with the art direction this time around.

I probably won't pick this up at launch, but will hold off for reviews and a mark down in the price. I just don't know if there will enough new content to bring me back to D3. I remember back in the day D2 had some very impressive expansions that really improved the gameplay of the game and greatly expanded the lifespan of the game as a whole.

I have to admit my Wii U will probably collect some dust before "X" finally reaches our shores. At least in terms of long hours logged into one game. I played 90+ hours previously for Xenoblade Chronicles.
90  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Diablo 3? on: June 11, 2013, 01:45:38 PM
Lack of new content is probably why I quit the game at the beginning of the year. Still nothing news related on the expansion. I guess their focus is on consoles right now.
