2611  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Gaming and Anime Tattoos!! I know you got em.... on: July 05, 2011, 07:11:24 PM
I like gaming and anime but tattoos?  Not so much...but hey, if that's your thing that's fine.

Got back from AX last night.  It's so hard to get back into a normal routine after being at a big con like that.  It's like I was living in an alternate dimension for the last four days.  Then there's the sunburns and blisters...damn LA was hot.  Nice to be back in Seattle where we think upper 70s is hot.

I wonder if I was the only one who kept everyone at the same level. It made boss battles that much easier since I could switch people in and out without being worried about being fucked over.

I did that too.  But then, I normally do that in most games.

Oh like the "I want a Zodiac Shield". Ok, go open the Zodiac Shield chest, it has a 0.006% chance of containing a Zodiac Shield. If it doesn't, just wait for the server ID to reset... oh wait, I mean reload and try again.

How the hell could anyone think this was a good idea?

Don't get me started on the Zodiac Spear either...

I guess this stuff never bothered me because I'm not an obsessive completionist.  So what if I don't get a Zodiac Shield?

I was at the panel when they announced this.  Very exciting.  Aksys seems to still have some faith in the PSP.  I mean, they also announced an otome VN for the PSP and that seems far more niche than this title.

All the progress you make in the beta is saved for the when the retail version is released, right?

If it's anything like the Uncharted 2 beta (or any other beta that I'm aware of...) the answer is absolutely not.  Everything is reset.

In a few hours I leave for Anime Expo.  So friggin psyched.

FFXII was the best post-SNES Final Fantasy game.  But haters gotta hate.  Admitedly Vaan was a bad character, but seeing how he was hardly even relevant after the first fifth of the game that's not a deal-breaker.

Curious to see what Yasumi Matsuno is working on now.

We only have one connection in the house and it's always connected to the computer. To DL something for the 360 or the PS3 I have to disconnect it and run it across the room to where my systems are. Then I have to return it back to the computer before my wife has a cow about me using it. If I we're to play a game online I would be constantly moving the line back and forth. Big pain in the ass.

You don't have a router?  You only have one computer in the house?  I figured just about everyone had wireless routers these days, and the PS3 has wifi built in.  I can't even imagine only having one computer hooked up at a time.  My place is littered with PCs, laptops, consoles, handhelds, tablets, phones, etc, all sharing the connection at once...

Plus, our DSL is only 3mb/sec. Fast enough for most things, but I can't imagine that's good enough for a decent gaming experience.

Um...that's easily good enough.  More than enough.  I don't know what you're judging this by since you obviously don't have any online gaming experience, but it really doesn't require a ton of bandwidth.  There are plenty of people playing online with worse connections than yours.

Look, if you don't want to play online that's your choice.  But I feel compelled to comment when you say things like that.  Your arguments seem more like rationalizations to me.

Jeez, I'm an inverted player (yeah, one of those...) and inverted controls do not work in the beta.  Actually, simply not working would be an improvement.  You can set it to inverted, and it might even work for a while, but then it will randomly switch back and forth between inverted and not inverted without you doing anything.  I spent my first game running around like I was having a seizure before I calmed down and very carefully confirmed that I was not, in fact, going crazy and the controls really work whack.

I guess I have to resign myself to using normal controls for now and retrain my brain to deal with it...

I can't find any players! I finally managed to connect and now I can't find anybody! I'm not going to bed without playing even if I have to stay up all fucking night!

You're in Europe, right?  I should have noted that I'm in the US.

I'm surprised that nobody is playing it, though.  What time is it there? ;)
2621  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception on: June 28, 2011, 05:59:45 PM
Anyone interested in some beta'ing tonight?  I'm Kevadu on PSN as well so feel free to add me (just say you're from RPGFan so I know who it is...).
2622  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Journey - thatgamecompany's new title on: June 28, 2011, 04:54:46 PM
Yeah, my connection is quite fast.  I stream HD video without any perceptible buffering.
2623  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Journey - thatgamecompany's new title on: June 28, 2011, 01:04:36 PM
I don't play games online. Never have. Even if I wanted to, I'm pretty sure my dsl connection isn't fast enough.

Er, if you have DSL I'm sure it's fine.  It's not like you're on dial-up or something (though I did online gaming via dial-up back in the day...).  It's more latency sensitive than bandwidth sensitive anyway.
2624  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Have you ever returned a game you bought? If so, which game was it? on: June 27, 2011, 03:17:17 PM
Read my post again. Do you see me judging the game itself anywhere? The fact that I never opened it in the end just makes me wish I hadn't bothered buying it to begin with. I had good intentions of playing it, obviously. I simply never did and eventually didn't care enough to.

Well, it's not too late to play it now! ;)

I don't know, I have games still in the shrinkwrap myself but I continue to hold on to the delusion that one day I will find time to play them...
2625  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Have you ever returned a game you bought? If so, which game was it? on: June 27, 2011, 02:52:47 PM
No, but some I wished I had. I never could get into Drakengard, and I bought the collector's edition of FFXII and never opened it.

Never opened it?  I know FFXII is a divisive game, but how can you judge it without playing?
