Disc swapping argument negated.  Now, I'm on the fence as to which version I buy.  I will wait for information.  The reasoning?

Play from hard drive. Copy your games from the game disc and play directly from the hard drive.  Not only will the drive not spin, but load times are quicker, as well. Of course, you will still need the disc in the tray to prove you own the game.

That is fucking amazing.  Oh God, I am sooooooooooo happy right now.  My only gripe with Mass Effect was the loading issues for data... installing on the hard drive would eliminate the vast majority, if not all of it.

Basically. It's a stupid argument.

Not really.  I know Metal Gear Solid 4 has the multiple installations, but that was a special case for a game I already trolled in a thread on this board as being overhyped and overrated.  Three other games I own have the one-time install and you end up with little to non-existant load times.

That's disgusting.

LMFAO @ FFXIII on 360.

I already own a PS3 though, so I'll be getting it for my PS3 since I won't have to deal with disc swapping.  Sony sycophants are undoubtedly shitting their pants.  I need to go read all the flame wars.  It should be precious.

You obviously never played the Phantasy Star series.

2121  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Infinite Undiscovery on: July 08, 2008, 10:45:21 PM
In case you hadn't noticed, this game will let you have a big-ass freakin' BEAR in your party.  A bear named GUSTAV.  A bear that pulls a SHORYUKEN while smiling like a dumb animal the entire time.  8D

Boring wolf in Vesperia is boring.  Wow, a wolf in a Japanese game.  Because we didn't just get finished with Okami and Zelda: Twilight Princess.  Get out.
2122  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Infinite Undiscovery on: July 08, 2008, 09:04:08 PM
Who cares.  It is a happy bear.

2123  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Infinite Undiscovery on: July 08, 2008, 08:57:08 PM
8D
2124  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Infinite Undiscovery on: July 08, 2008, 08:54:30 PM
Infinite Undiscovery, now with 100% more bear.





I want this game more than ever, now.  This is the best thing to ever happen to JRPGs.

Since Lost Odyssey was mentioned, and kids were also mentioned, those dumb kids that join your party was the moment that Lost Odyssey went from average RPG to mediocre RPG.  It's one thing when the atmosphere is cartoony like Grandia, but it's another when the game takes itself too seriously and then you have ten-year-olds standing up to knights who are being mean for the sake of being mean, so as to have an excuse for the obligatory boss fight every other hour.  It didn't help that Lost Odyssey's idiot kids are named Cooke and Mack.

Did I mention Lost Odyssey sucks?

A must read thread for anyone even remotely interested in this game.

(plus I'm HDTVless.)

This explains a lot.

For reference, I game on a 46" 1080p Samsung A550 series HDTV, so I get to see all the intricate details in 360 and PS3 games.  Infinite Undiscovery and White Knight Chronicles' respective trailers look amazing, and PS2 games look like jagged, blurry pieces of shit.

Edit: Also, the only time one should buy Blu-Ray movies is when they're on sale.  For example, I got The Last Samurai on Blu-Ray earlier this week for $15, no tax, free shipping through Amazon.  I sure do love Amazon.
2128  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Infinite Undiscovery on: July 01, 2008, 08:31:16 PM
Since you're a PS3 owner, out of curiousity, do you think White Knight Chronicles looks like a "high-end PS2 game"?  After all, if one were to judge by this:



...it really isn't all that different than Infinite Undiscovery with regard to character detail.  Just some food for thought.
2129  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Infinite Undiscovery on: July 01, 2008, 06:30:27 PM
You're certainly welcome to your opinion of course, but it reminds me of the commentary from people who say they can't tell the difference between DVD and Blu-Ray.

It looks like a high-end PS2 game...

I don't know of any PS2 games where the in-game camera can zoom in this close to a character's face:



...and not be a blurry mess like say, Final Fantasy XII:


And that's just the faces.  Objects and articles of clothing on IU's characters are modeled, whereas if you look closely, Penelo's clothing looks painted on and lacks depth since it's just a bunch of textures.  It's remarkable what Square Enix pulled off on the PS2 with Final Fantasy XII, but saying Infinite Undiscovery looks like a high-end PS2 game is a bit of a stretch.
