Ar Tonelico 3 - That part where you run after Saki for way too long.

That last one is like an entire story arc of running across multiple maps with random encounters and tons of unskippable in-game cutscene-ish discussions.
It lasts easily an hour and you are just running after her because she's being stupid. Ends up with her trying to suicide herself because she is so fucking stupid.
I am never doing a Saki game because that part of the game almost gave me ulcers and Saki is one of the worst character I've ever seen.

This one doesn't make a lick of sense, as the only character who actually attempts to commit suicide in that game is Finnel, and even then, that chase sequence doesn't last beyond a few minutes.

More importantly, Ar Tonelico 3 was not an "otherwise great game".  It wasn't even a good game!

Don't get me wrong, I loved the first two Ar Tonelico games but come on...3 was terrible.

Probably couldn't fit both games on a single Vita memory card, but it does seem like kind of a bum deal...

It has a release date!

In Japan, anyway...but that's still progress.

Also, anyone ever heard of Attack on Titan?? It's becoming an anime too soon... I dunno, this series sounds like it warrants a checking-out. :D

Hey, I pointed out that show when the lineup for the Spring was first announced.  Believe I called it something like a "must see".  But nobody ever listens to me...if you did you would be watching Blast of Tempest by now ;)

Love how the trailer is two minutes long and gives no actual information about the game.

...wait, I don't love that.
2017  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Neptunia and Vita on: March 17, 2013, 04:34:50 AM
Apparently somebody at Compile Heart likes the Vita...

We already knew about the Idol Neptunia PP spinoff that's coming in June, but that's not an RPG (it's apparently an Idolmaster-like game in the Neptunia universe...) and it's not what this post is about.

No, apparently Compile Heart has announced two more Neptunia games, both coming this year for the Vita.  Milk a franchise much?

One of them, Hyper-Hyperdimension Game Neptunia Re;Birth1, is a remake of the original.  The other is a spinoff staring Black Heart.

Honestly I've yet to play a Neptunia game.  I'm just posting this because I thought it was interesting.  I'm not sure what they're actually doing for the remake (there weren't any real details), but if they improve the mechanics I might consider giving it a shot...seems like a reasonable place to start.  Compile Heart is clearly committed to this franchise...

I haven't played Gungnir yet myself, but Sting makes nice SRPGs that tend to emphasize the S over the RGP.  If that's what you're looking for then I would really recommend Yggdra Union which is one of their older titles but it's still my favorite Sting game to this day.

Am I the only one who really didn't like Hexyz Force?  It's...inoffensive, I guess.  But it did absolutely nothing to grab me.  Everything about it feels tired and generic.
2020  The Rest / General Discussions / Who publishes your games this gen? on: March 16, 2013, 04:35:54 PM
With the recent SimCity debacle and all the hate EA has been getting lately, along with the hate Activision has been getting for a while for various reasons, I became curious about how many games from these big publishers I actually own.  I knew it wasn't very many, and not because I've been actively boycotting them or anything.  It just that these super-massive publishing juggernauts just can't seem to make the sort of game that I like.  I get it, my tastes are weird.

I decided to quantify exactly how weird my tastes are by cataloging all of my PS3 games by publisher (retail only, not counting expansion packs).  Because why not...

Sony: 7
Sega: 5
EA: 4
Namco Bandai: 4
Square Enix: 4
Atlus: 3
2K: 2
Bethesda: 2
Valve: 2
Konami: 1

This was just PS3 games, so Sony's lead shouldn't be that surprising.  And obviously things would change with handhelds (Xseed isn't even on this list, but I have a ton of their games on PSP.  I would also expect a big jump for Atlus.).  Even so, I thought this was pretty interesting.  I didn't even realize how many Sega games I owned.  And Namco Bandai benefited massively from me importing...I think only one of those games was actually a US release (that would be Tails of Graces f).  While there are a fair number of EA titles on my shelf (mostly thanks to Bioware...), I really don't own a single Activision game.  Again, I haven't been actively boycotting them, they just don't make any games that I care about...

Maybe I should go back and include handheld titles, it really would change things.  But I'm curious what publishers the rest of you favor.

Oath and Seven feel quite different.  Oath can be thought of as an evolution of the "traditional Ys" (no apostrophe!) system which heavily emphasizes positioning and basic attacks, while Seven takes things in a pretty different direction with more types of attacks and a party-based system.  I happen to like the approach in Seven, but it was a pretty big departure for the series and I know it was controversial among old-school Ys fans.

Even if you go by the released modes, only 2/5 of them even qualify as RTS games.  The problem is everything else was extremely barebones (well, aside from the awesome creator tools).

It's Makoto Shinkai weekend at Crunchyroll!  Meaning all of his wonderful films are available to watch for a limited time.  If you haven't seen them, then fix that!  The Place Promised in Our Early Days and 5 Centimers Per Second are my favorites.
2024  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: March 15, 2013, 10:37:16 PM
I'm going to have to vehemently disagree with you about Spore, Mesh.  The game was never billed as Age of Empires light.  The mode you're referring to is only one small piece of what they were promising.  Saying that pre-release videos were accurate because one small piece of the game was relatively similar when nothing else was is disingenuous at best.  And yes, the missing stuff absolutely does alter the core of the game.

To actually answer your question about VC2, Vencoris, the gameplay is quite solid.  Even better than VC1 in many ways (it's better balanced, for starters), though it does suffer a bit from the smaller map size.  The story and presentation leave much to be desired, however.  Actually, they had all the pieces to make a decent story and then did...bugger all with them.  So I guess it depends on what you're looking for.

But yeah, TitS is great.  Just give it some time because it does start slow.
