I don't really wear that style of shirt casually anyway; maybe I'm just too formal. I always planned to use it as a nightgown.  I use my Catherine one as a nightie, too.

Thanks for the notification that the Pre-Order is up, I guess they didn't send out the Prinny Bomb yet.

I'll definitely be getting the SE (like I always do with Gust titles).

Is the voice acting for this game as bad as it seems in all the trailers?  Honestly I'm starting to think I should have just imported it...


Kate Higgins (Pascal) did a brilliant job for the role she was given. She really gives life to the character, despite some of the obnoxious lines.  I don't like the character or her writing, but I can fully admit Higgins did beautifully with her. Cheria is played by Laura Bailey, and Laura is always good.

Asbel took me a while to become used to and he's nowhere near Troy Baker (Yuri) level.  Richard's actor is weak at first, but comes off better later in the story after a few events.

On an amusing note, some of the generic guards are played by Wes Johnson (Imperial Male from Morrowind/Oblivion/Skyrim). I was laughing hard; he's a great actor, but I couldn't stop hearing "Stop right there, Criminal Scum!"

Thanks.  I'll be getting this when I have the time, then, too many games for me at the moment.  I love Thatgamecompany.

Cyril:
Code:
I would really hate it if Liara had Shepard's kids regardless given that my Sheps romanced Garrus and Thane. I mean, Liara got really pushed on us as it were.

Yeah, I romanced Garrus as well, I don't want it.

Code:
But you have to admit, "special gift" and "different type of mind meld" really make it seem like that's what she was hinting at.
846  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 14, 2012, 04:00:10 PM
That time skip, haha.
I feel like I'm suddenly getting a good hold on the battle system, attacks and evasions becoming smooth, then suddenly, they double the amount I have to deal with.

I'm sure I'll get used to it, but those first few battles - they were terrible, re-getting to know everything.
847  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: March 13, 2012, 09:00:45 PM
I thought Yomi was rather easy, just time consuming.  But, then again, I was completely capped out when I fought him.  Not even his strongest attack could one-hit me without Sentinel (though it did hurt).

I second Serah's solo battle being the hardest.  But hey, playstyles.  I'd personally like a Hard mode, because I felt the game was too easy overall.  Even the Long Gui was much, much easier than the Long Gui in XIII.

I'm sure they'll add some super boss via DLC.  Is Lightning hard?

I know it isn't really the point, but how is the single player experience?
849  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 3 (expect ME1&2 spoilers) on: March 13, 2012, 08:32:07 PM
So yeah, the ending.

Code:
It would have been much, much better had they cut it off shortly after Anderson died and showed Shepard
looking down over Earth with him. That had the perfect mood set, a nice mixture of bittersweet with some hope.
It felt "finale-like." Maybe they could have shown the Crucible at work if they really wanted to push it.

But as is? I think "lack of denouement" is the perfect description of what happened.   I could probably rant on it
for a while, but I'll stick with that.  On an amusing note, that "child" in the post-credits scene was a shrunken adult. I was laughing hard.

Also, methinks Liara's pregnant.  That "special gift" mind meld she gives you in London - whether or not you romanced her,
male or female - definitely makes me think she's going to have Shepard's babies.

I could see a PSP/PC simultaneous release. Though I guess if they went PC for that it'd have to be sold through online channels anyway, though it would be awesome if they could get a limited, classic PC-style release for it.

I think that depends on Falcom more than XSEED.  If you'll remember, XSEED has no programmers, they simply send the text to the programmers at Falcom.

Either way, this is excellent news.  The more people who can play these titles the better.  I hear the PC versions are the best, as well.

Is the FPS really a huge issue, though? My brother watched me play the PC version at a consistent ~40 FPS then complains about his 30 FPS 360 version, but I see very little difference outside of my PC version being... you know... higher res.

FPS is really something you train yourself on and are attuned to through experience.  Some people weren't noticing the huge drops in FPS in the PS3 version of Skyrim, yet I felt them consistently (my FPS eventually started dropping so low that I took one step every ~10 seconds, but that's another story. . .).  I find  playing PC games more often at higher FPS made drops more noticeable in general.  Before I got into PC gaming I barely felt the change.  Now it's obvious as day. For example, I didn't notice the non-major FPS drops in SotC my first time playing it.

Now?
Completely different story.
852  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 3 (expect ME1&2 spoilers) on: March 13, 2012, 04:17:12 AM
The PS3 version is supposedly running at a consistent. . .20FPS.  That's an insult to PS3 owners.

The main problem with the 360 version is the load times that freeze you in place every so often and frequent disk changing during the first half of the game.  Make sure you install it for best results.
853  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 3 (expect ME1&2 spoilers) on: March 12, 2012, 10:17:15 PM
Code:
I just did that part now.  You basically have to knock some sense into the Quarians with Paragon or Renegade choices.
 Legion dies to make the Geth "sentient," but they are at peace with the Quarians and the Quarians return to their homeworld.
Truly, it's the best possible ending unless you feel sentient Geth (like Legion) are dangerous.

Honestly, though, the Admirals really made themselves look like idiots.  I wouldn't trust them to lead.

Me three! Yay for Prime free release-day shipping.

Now if only there was more time in a day; I've no idea how to balance it between ME3 and this.  I still wanted to 100% Amalur, too.
855  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: March 12, 2012, 02:31:57 PM
The Future is Hope was definitely fun, and it would be interesting to see the results of what happened during that timeline, but I like Serah's ending after you solo defeat Caius because

Code:
it's the only one where Yeul is happy.

Though, I admit the Oerba/Vanille one was a bit strange.  It did not feel very much like an "ending."  Unless they
were actually stuck 500 years in the past?
