OK, that's weird, the problem seems to be partially on Google's end.  I wasn't typing in the URL, just googling it.  Yet the address they claim to take me to is the right address.  But if I click on Google's link vs. typing it in directly I get completely different results.   Also, Google is also claiming "This site might be compromised" in their search results...weird.

And yeah, the forums are still down.  Something must have happened.
2012  The Rest / General Discussions / Xseed hacked? on: February 03, 2012, 02:13:28 AM
I was just trying to go to Xseed's website and the main page is completely blank while trying to go to their forums redirected to some Canadian pharmacy website (which I'm sure is totally legit...).  Either they decided on a new business model or something is wrong...

FFXIII was hard?  Are you kidding me?  Time consuming, yes.  Lot's of enemies had pointlessly high numbers of hitpoints so the battles dragged on and on and on, but I wouldn't call a game where you successfully win every single battle (and get 5 stars for the matter...) with the exact same strategy 'hard'.  Not even close.

That was my biggest beef with the battle system.  There just weren't that many options to choose from so finding the optimal solution was trivial.

Sad the story wasn't as good as it could've been

Interesting choice of words.  How good could the story have been, really, given what they were working with and who was working on it...

Sounds to me like the game is exactly what I expected it to be.
2015  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur on: January 31, 2012, 02:48:54 AM
They did the same thing with DA and DA2, why all the fuss now?

If you get the "Ultimate Edition" of Dragon Age, all the content comes on the disc.

You have to install it, but there's no code.

Massive difference.

How is that even relevant?  The 'Ultimate Edition' was a re-release that came out like a year later.  There certainly was release day DLC with Dragon Age.  I know because I got it day 1 and had to download stuff.
2016  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur on: January 30, 2012, 09:47:26 PM
Wait, are they actually calling it an 'online pass' themselves?  I thought that label was just attached to it by angry websites.

They did the same thing with DA and DA2, why all the fuss now?

I wonder that too...

Really good article for those who are confused about the nature of this game.  It's definitely worth a read.
2018  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: January 29, 2012, 02:05:24 PM
Yup, I can remember paying $30 for a DVD with three episodes on it...seems crazy now but that's what anime used to cost.  If you shopped online on sketchy discount DVD sites you could maybe get that down to $20.  It was friggin expensive.

And box sets were hardly a deal.  Heck, I remember when the first Cowboy Bebop box set came out it cost more than buying the DVDs individually.  Guess they thought the box was worth something...

The thing is, that sort of pricing still exists in Japan.
2019  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atlus Game Announcement Thread - Mark 2 on: January 28, 2012, 04:09:32 AM
after the debacle that was last year for atlus usa in which they lost 90 percent of there fanbase...........

Yay completely made up statistics!

do you think its a coincedence so far there entire 2012 lineup is rpgs?

Atlus's lineup has always been mostly RPGs...and Catherine, a non-RPG, is the best-selling Atlus game ever in the US, and the second best selling Atlus USA published title.  (The first being Demons Souls.  I have no doubt they would have loved to do Dark Souls as well but it wasn't up to them.)  So yeah, doing things besides RPGs has been a real disaster...

There is no doubt they made some questionable decisions lately (like having anything to do with The Cursed Crusade), but please point to some actual evidence of this widespread anti-Atlus sentiment you're talking about.  Wait, you can't because you completely made it up.

Non-RPGs:
Gravity Daze and a Vita to play it on...
If I get that Vita I'll probably get Uncharted: Golden Abyss too

Can you post your impressions of both games on the Vita thread later when you get them please?

I own both games as well. I imported

You own both?  That's quite an achievement since one of them isn't even out in Japan yet...
2021  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: 2012 anticipations on: January 27, 2012, 10:12:27 PM
I wish they would stop releasing all these new games so I can find the time to play my old games...

OK, seriously though here is what I expect to get:

RPGs:
Kingdoms of Amalur
Final Fantasy Type-0
Tales of Graces f
Ni no Kuni
Atelier Meruru
Grand Knights History
Gungnir
Growlanser IV
Black Rock Shooter
Shining Blade (import, I don't expect it to be localized ever)
Xenoblade and a Wii to play it on...I said I would buy a Wii if they released that game here so I would be a liar if I didn't follow through.

Non-RPGs:
Gravity Daze and a Vita to play it on...
If I get that Vita I'll probably get Uncharted: Golden Abyss too


Funny how my list is dominated by PSP games...even though all the big game sites seem to think it's a completely dead platform.

Man, I need to buy two new game systems...hopefully I can find a used Wii for cheap or something.

Hey folks,

We wanted to post a quick clarification for something we've seen a few comments about. For what it's worth, the House of Valor content was not in the finished game/disc at one point, then removed. It isn't there and we're locking you out of it. The House of Valor was created as stand-alone content, and was always intended to be the first DLC. Instead of holding onto it and charging for it later, we opted to give it to everyone who purchases the game new, for free, on launch day.

Free DLC is exactly what this is.  Stop freaking out.

To alcohol!  The cause of--and solution to--all of life's problems.
2024  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdoms of Amalur on: January 27, 2012, 04:52:14 PM

Those bastards are including a code for free DLC in every new copy of the game!  How dare they!

BTW, the code doesn't work yet because the DLC isn't even finished yet.  So this isn't unlocking content that's already on the disc or something.

It's amazing how a genuinely nice gesture can be grossly misinterpreted...

Can somebody explain to me what is so great about Guilty Crown?  I'm not trolling or anything, but after reading so many positive comments about it I tried to give it a shot and watched a few eps...but I felt completely let down.  It's just another formulaic sci-fi mecha show with a main character who acquires deus ex machina power and otherwise suffers from generic shounen protagonist syndrome.  I tried to give the show a decent chance so I watched like four episodes but in the end I really couldn't care at all about any of the characters.  And the actual action was uninspired and predictable.  And the overarching storyline is just...stupid.

But I hear so many people going on about how great this show is...I don't get.
