he was attracted to all kind of women, regardless of texture physics

Wait, what?

I will bravely default on debt!

In all seriousness, I like the look of the game, but why the hell are they sticking AR crap in an RPG?  Do not want.

almost nothing of interest....... *sad face* perhaps that worldwide recession is starting to take its toll....

?  It hasn't started yet.  Let's at least save the doom and gloom until after the fact.  There are still quite a few unannounced titles.

Maybe if you ignore the sodium content.

I make my own sauce, anyway.  That's another thing that keeps pretty well so I only have to do it once in a while.

I don't really have time to cook

Bullocks.  I can make a well-balanced, healthy and delicious meal in under half an hour and have leftovers that I can reheat for another couple of meals if I'm really pressed for time.  Or sometimes on the weekends I'll make a big enough batch of something so that I can eat leftovers for the rest of the week.

I refuse to believe that there is anyone out there who really doesn't have time to cook.  You may not have the desire to cook or the skill to cook, but I'm sure you could find the time if you actually tried.  I often don't get home until 8 or 9pm but somehow I still manage to find time to cook.

I'm with Starmongoose here.  Those frozen dinners taste awful, are awful for you, and cost an awful lot.  At least make some pasta or something.  That takes barely any time at all.

Which will not, judging how Bandai Namco screw us all the time.

Let's see, we got Vesperia, we're getting Graces f, we're getting Abyss 3DS.  They haven't announced anything for Xillia but given that it's the biggest Tales game yet I certainly wouldn't bet against it.  Other than handheld games, what have we really missed lately?

OMG, Namco Bandai is screwing us so much.  How dare they!

Now one can certainly complain about how long they're taking to do it.  And the fact that this might be a handheld game certainly does lower the odds.  But I think most of this whining about how we don't get any Tales games is pretty unjustified.

So apparently Type-0 will be available on PSN.  Why is that interesting?  Well, it's a 2 UMD game and in the past there have been claims that there are technical issues with 2 UMD games on PSN.  I think this is the first time anyone will be getting a downloadable version of a 2 UMD game.

This is also good because that version should also work with Vita, and this improves the odds of seeing some sort of release overseas.

If I get a voucher I'm keeping it for myself, sorry ;)

I have no idea why people who hated FFXIII are getting their hopes up for this game.  Based on what I played at PAX it really looks like more of the same to me.  If your only complaints about FFXIII were the linearity and lack of towns then those issues have been addressed so you might find something to like, but personally I had a laundry list of things I didn't like about XIII.  I don't think I'm even going to get this game (maybe if all the reviews are incredibly positive).

Now Type-0, on the other hand, looks friggin awesome.  Giving up on S-E because of XIII-2 without even trying Type-0 baffles me...

Giving the fiction of the universe being able to change personas wouldn't make any sense.  Well, except for the MC of course.

Yukiko has always been my favorite.

Having the choice for a QTE seems to make so much sense.

Why the fuck did god of war not try that?

A lot of games use QTEs and nobody ever thought of that.

Witcher 2 would like to say hello.

Heavy Rain did it before that.

Clearly the only people who play games are kids!

OK, so the rumours about there being a 3DS accessory that adds a second analog pad which we had all dismissed as being completely crazy (well, at least I did...) seem to be legit.  There are leaked Famitsu scans out there that have the details.  I don't even know what to say...

This makes a 3DS redesign that actually has the second analog pad built in seem kind of inevitable.  And the system hasn't even been out for a year yet...

I can see where the problems in DA2 lie, but people's opinions of it are so low as to be comical. It's seriously hilarious that some people have "lost total faith" in Bioware over one flawed game, and proof that gamers are just a whiny bunch of shit sacks.

Making the game faster (and 'binding awesome to keys' or whatever bullshit people are calling 'crap' nowadays ... I hardly noticed it) was not the problem, yet people are being absolutely absurd in their hate for the game. I'm inclined to agree with Parn, it's a 6 or 7 out of 10 game. Any lower and you're just being a drama queen.


I really appreciate what DA2 was trying to do, personally.  It was a different kind of story than you usually see in RPGs, and I like that.  It was great to get involved in the politics of a city that is experiencing a period of strife and see how things change over time.  But then, I love politics in my RPGs so I guess I'm just weird like that.  What Bioware didn't succeed in giving the player anyone to root for.  Both sides of the conflict were so exceedingly unlikeable that by the end I was wishing I could just leave and let them kill each other.  Why wasn't that an option?

But the game's biggest problems were the constant dungeon reuse and lazy encounter design.  These are obvious symptoms of the game's rushed development and fans deserved better.  I really hope they take their time with DA3.
