Why did you jump to FFVI?  FFVI hasn't had anywhere near the number of ports as some of the other entries in the series.  In fact it hasn't had many at all.

The original Final Fantasy (Ashton did just say 'Final Fantasy' after all) is a different story.

I'd like to say that makes me nostalgic, but I have bad memories with Super Mario World, so...

What?  Why?  SMW was awesome.

A replica of the HMS Bounty was sunk in the hurricane.

Why on earth were they sailing the Bounty in a hurricane?  If I was in that crew I would have mutinied.

And here I mainly just talk about games and stuff.  I feel out of the loop...

Go to a grocery store and buy palette of bottles of water for cheap and keep them in your car.

Looking at the description for Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward on amazon.ca (http://www.amazon.ca/Zero-Escape-Virtues-Last-Reward/dp/B007FMSDU0/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1350868711&sr=1-1), I discovered the game seems to contain Ys Seven as a hidden bonus...

That's not Ys Seven, that's Ys Celceta!  That's like double awesome.

FFXII had some amazing dungeons.  Probably my favorite of any FF game.  They just weren't until the second half of the game...

They early stuff was pretty dull.

The more I play Rogue Galaxy, the more comparisons to Final Fantasy XII I find.  Action battle system

FFXII didn't have an action battle system...

It looks like Project Diva f will likely be the first game I ever platinum.  Wonder what that says about me?  Or maybe it just says it's an easy platinum, because usually there's some bullshit requirement and I just can't be bothered (RPGs are the worst trophy-wise since it just takes so damn long...).  Still, I have put a lot of hours into the game.

Anyway, I only have two trophies left to get:
1.  There's a trophy for uploading an edit data to Sega's servers.  Technically I could get this right now as I did make one, only it's an unplayable piece of junk.  But the trophy is just for uploading something, quality isn't measured.  Still I'd rather wait until I had something less embarrassing.

2.  The other trophy I need is kind of annoying.  The game displays artwork during loading screens and there's a trophy for collecting them all.  But what you get is totally random so there are lots and lots of repeats.  I have like 92% but who knows how long the last 8% will take.  There's no real strategy involved here, just persistence...

I don't think it's that simple.  What these games ultimately illustrate is the importance of trust.  The societally-optimal solution (meaning the one that brings the biggest benefit to the most people) is always to have everyone cooperate, so cooperation seems like a no-brainer, right?  But you have to trust that the other person is also going to cooperate.

You say that you would never choose betray because it could potentially bring harm to another person, but what if your opponent didn't think the same way?  You're locked up with a bunch of people you know nothing about and you're told to either cooperate or betray.  You may want to cooperate, but if you cooperate and they betray you get screwed while your opponent gets the largest possible pay-off.  That wouldn't make you bitter?  Or fearful, for that matter.  What if it happens again?  Betraying might be necessary as the 'safe' choice to save your own neck.

Have you never seen this particular type of game theory before, Zeron?  It's a textbook example.  Well, not necessarily with the killing and stuff, but look up "normal-form game".  It's not a new idea.

Well, they don't say exactly where it fits in the timeline, but it's a continuation of Laharl's story.
1934  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: October 20, 2012, 02:12:44 PM
I never heard of it either...

Sequel, according to the Famitsu article.
