I enjoyed the first two Disgaeas...I might even enjoy the third one when I finally get around to playing it.  I actually own it and it's still in the shrink-wrap.  Obviously I'm not in a big rush to get Disgaea 4.

Every battle STARTED with the Baby Baby chorus.  You can't end a fight before it shows up.

That's simply not true.  Believe me, I got really good at it.

I checked because I was curious, and yeah, it's impossible. The second the song starts *cymbal crash* "baby baby baby". There's no way you can end a battle that fast.

I guess I was talking about the 'baby, baby' about a minute in.  For some reason the opening of the song never bothered me so much.

The little one-liners and stuff the characters deliver with every single attack are already starting to annoy me in Japanese.  Just imagine what that will be likely with an English dub.

Not that other games don't do the same thing, but the frequency is on a completely different level here.

Sakura Wars kind of wowed me.  Great game with a great localization.

I'm also a Gust fan, but not because of NISA's localizations...well, at this point I'll take what I can get.

The whole book thing makes a lot more sense when it isn't a portable game...

After a 200-ish floor dungeon; I got sick of the battle theme - tartarus theme - battle theme - tartarus theme.  After a while, "BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY BABY" gets annoying for EVERY single battle.  Its a good theme; but grating after some time.  I prefer Sakuraba's instrumentals for the same reason people were "iffy" about TWEWY's "score".  Its a minor, personal preference.

I completely agree.  By the end of P3 I made it my objective to finish every battle before the "baby baby" chorus started.  It's a fine theme...if you're only listening to it once or twice.  Given the amount you hear it in P3 I would much rather have something less obtrusive.

Xenogears, to at least play the second disc. 

You know, I usually reject remakes that start messing around with the plot/structure of the original game out of principle, but a Xenogears remake in which they actually finished making the game?  I'd play that!

Still not quite sure what this game is, but I have already been convinced to get it.

It's sad because some of us would much rather play games on a full-sized console rather than a tiny, uncomfortable handheld.  Especially RPGs which can eat up huge quantities of time.

I've had just about enough of this "don't look, just let it happen" bullshit.  Giving that kind of advice is irresponsible.  Maybe that did work for you...that just means you got lucky.  It's certainly not a guaranteed strategy.

I used to truly believe in that approach until I realized that I was almost 30 and hadn't had a single date in like 5 years.  It's not like I'm some kind of shut-in living in my parents basement, either.  I'm independent, intelligent, and successful.  I had plenty of friends and colleges, but zero romantic interests.

You are never going to find a partner if you don't meet people.  Not meeting people was my big problem...I work in a field that's 95% male and my hobbies tend to either be things that only interest males or...well, things like gaming, that are pretty much just a terrible way to meet anyone.  Screw that.

Online dating is a perfectly reasonable way to meet people.  People who are also single, in the right age range, and of the appropriate gender, even.  Just don't expect more out of it than that.  Some people get too attached before actually meeting the person and try to imagine a connection that isn't there.  That's dumb.  Try to meet in person early and often.  See how things go.  If it turns out you don't like that person (or that person doesn't like you) then let that be the end of it.  There shouldn't be any hard feelings at that point.  You literally just met each other.

back to earlier, if you can tell me how to get PSP on my tv with a PS3 controller I'll be a happy gamer willing to have your babies.

As Eusis mentioned the PSP Go can do this, as it has bluetooth support.  But you said you already had a PSP so if you don't want to buy a whole new system that's restricted to direct-downloads then can I suggest a grip accessory like I mentioned in my post?  No, it's not a PS3 controller but it can be just as comfortable as one.  Really makes a huge difference.  I can't even play my PSP without it.

Baldur's Gate 2

Oddly enough I disagree with this for basically the same reason you disagreed with FFVI.  Baldur's Gate 2 is a fantastic game, but I really think  it's fine as it is.  It doesn't need a remake.

I'd like a FFVI remake, though.  It's been long enough now that it would be good to see.  Baldur's Gate 2 came out in what, 2000?  A game should be at least 15 years old before it gets a remake ;)

That pretty much just proves he needs to get himself handhelds and accept there'll only be a small smattering on consoles in contrast to the PS1 and 2 days.

But handhelds suck! ;)

Though with a grip accessory (so that it can actually be used comfortably) and if I plug it into my TV my PSP isn't that bad.  Especially now that I got the right cables so that I can run it through my home theater system.  Still wish I could just play PSP games on the PS3, though.

Does completely sold out in japan mean anything? lol

It means demand met/exceeded expectations?  Really doesn't tell you what those expectations were, though.
