The more I learn about this game the more I want it.  I don't care if it's on the PSP.  The biggest problem with VC2 was the story/characters but the game plays great.  Better than the original in a lot of ways.  With this game they seem to be returning to a more serious, linear story.  They've also promised larger maps than VC2.

However I do have one huge concern:  What is having a playable Valkyur on your team going to do to the game balance?  I mean heck, why would you even use any other unit?

Man, I don't even like racing games and they're making me want to buy this...how did they do that?

it's the big fucking CHANGE in Dante's design that bothers most.

Except it's not a sequel, it's a reboot.  Why does he have to look the same?

Heads up:  I am not, nor have I ever been, much of a DMC fan.

To me all the bitching about Dante's new look is really silly.  The original Dante looked like he just walked off the stage of a Japanese boy band.  Honestly, while I'm not a huge fan of either the new design looks better to me.

I'm still not going to buy the game, though.

PS.Anybody know what was said in the trailer?


Going by memory now (I'm supposed to be working...), but roughly speaking at the beginning of the trailer Katherine asks Vincent if he is listening and says he hasn't been answering his phone (I think...something like that).  She then asks if he's hiding something.  That's pretty much all the spoken dialogue in the trailer, and I think Andriasang translated some of the text.

At the end of the trailer when Vincent gets the mail on his phone he says, "But, this pose..." and trails off.  Presumably there was some kind of photo included.

Additionally Doom is a game about killing satan and his demonic hordes. It's a perfectly goodly Christian game in that sense. I mean if look I know the Good Book doesn't make any mention of Mars, but I'm pretty sure if demons invaded it, The Pope himself would go there in a b..attlesui..t to f...uck some shit... up............. WAIT THAT NEEDS TO BE A GAME. NOW.

Mesh, for once I completely agree with you.

New trailer

Looks great.

Zombies...blah.  Seriously a weird direction to take this series in.  I think part of me is still hoping that this is all a big joke.

The important question is whether or not you will be able to visit hostess bars during the zombie invasion ;)

I had some hands-on time with DA2 at PAX and I came away pretty impressed.  I will say, though, that there is a definite console focus this time around.  In fact, it was playable on both PS3s and 360s but wasn't even shown on the PC. 

Thats likely only because consoles are easier to transport to conventions.

Tell that to all the people who brought their own computers for the big LAN party ;)

In all seriousness here, given the size of their booth, the things they were giving out, and the fact that they only had 20 stations set up (I had to wait in line for 2 hours to play it), I don't buy that argument for a second.  How much harder would it be to transport PCs?  Regardless of system they still had to bring the displays, audio equipment, figure out the power connections, etc.  And there are plenty of powerful computers out that aren't much bigger than a 360 or PS3.  It's not like other companies didn't show things off on PCs.

I really do think Bioware is pushing the console versions more this time around.

Do I need to use the analog stick to play VCII? Iīm asking because my psp analog stick does not works well and thatīs taking a toll in my decision to buy these games.  

Yes you do.  The d-pad serves roughly the same function but in slow motion (it's for fine adjustments).  I would not recommend walking through an enemy's line of fire using only the d-pad...

Back to the topic at hand, if you actually read more than just the name of the system it's on in that Andriasang article it sounds pretty darn good to me.  I know I will pick it up.  But hey, I seem to be in the minority around these parts in actually liking VC2 (though oddly in agreement with most of the gaming press for once...).

Edit:  I guess it wasn't clear but I was talking about this Andriasang article.

I don't like any Skittles...

But alcohol, that I like.  Especially with food.

It's official, you can't play this game in public.

That sounds like a challenge!
3403  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The 3rd Birthday on: September 11, 2010, 01:35:31 PM
This level immaturity doesn't belong in the PE universe, especially applied to Aya. It's the kind of crap I would expect from a Compile Heart game or NISA's more immature translation moments (Record of Agarest War and Ar Tonelico 2 comes to mind); not from something out of the PE series.

NISA had nothing to do wth Agarest War.  That was Aksys.

If this game had anyone else as the main character and wasn't bearing the Parasite Eve name I wouldn't care. I'd roll my eyes and let it join the other hoards of fanservicy games that come from Japan on a weekly basis. But the fact that they're, almost literally, raping Aya as a character outright without all the subtly of a 12 year old hyped up on sugar who just hit puberty and discovered the internet...that irritates me to no end.

Right, because showing some skin = rape...

*Kevadu rolls eyes.

You stole a puppy?!

I hope you gave it to a good home.

I see where you are coming from, but social links are a far more integral part of the Persona experience.  Without them what would you even have?  Mediocre dungeon crawls through random dungeons.  It wouldn't be half the game without the social links.  The combat is not that compelling.

I have put about 20 hours into VC2 now and I've probably spent 90% of it either in combat or upgrading/customizing my squad.  The conversations are a pretty minor part of the game, just there to add some flavor.  You said so yourself that there's just '4 small cutscenes with each character'.  I am not convinced the game would even benefit from Persona levels of interaction with the characters.  That would get in the way.  I'm playing it for the combat first and foremost.

There is one other point I will disagree with.  You may only have 19 members in your squad at a time but with the ability to set up multiple rosters that you can freely switch between for different missions there is really no reason not to use everyone unless you specifically want to focus on a few characters  (which is a perfectly valid approach).
