I know the PS3 let me download free Disgaea D2 DLC before I had any part of the game installed.

Perfect.  Thanks for the info Klutz. :)

Twilight Princess icon discovered in the WiiU eShop Menu:

Time to speculate if it's a remaster or straight port, and the biggest question of all: Will Link be right-handed (Wii) or left-handed (GC). :P   But rumour has it that it IS an HD version.

Good news, Alisha's DLC will be free for the first little while.
....Hmm, I'm not sure I'm getting the game at first, I wonder if I can just download it anyways. :P

If you disliked this movie, you had no childhood.  Not telling you what it is. 


Aw man this movie's been a favourite of mine for forever.....for-ev-er....for-ev-er.
Definitely one of the *best* examples of a movie all ages can enjoy and appreciate.

I admit my play history with SMT is spotty as hell, but I love following the weird odyssey and cool designs for places and people these games take you on.

You linked Duke Silver just to pander to me and I'm okay with it.

This does sound like a good idea!

haha maybe indirectly. xD
Naw, the podcast also referenced him. x), don't remember who exactly said "someone will get that reference".

Got another one: we don't need the upgraded Tales of Vesperia. A big part of the game is the dynamic between Yuri and Flynn and the way they try to accomplish their goals. Yuri works from the shadows while Flynn climbs the ladder as a leader. The final part of the game is basically Yuri and co kicking some final boss ass while Flynn (who practically controls the whole imperial army at that point) keeps things in check on the ground, which is important, because I doubt most people know how to deal with a 'we're all doomed' scenario in an calm and organised manner. Both are playing the role they were made to play. It makes absolutely no sense to have Flynn as a party member. It goes against the story, the characters and plain old logic (you should not send multiple world leaders off to almost certain doom). As for loli pirate girl, I think we reached the loli pirate girl quotum in Tales of Eternia. There is no need for her.

Completely agreed here.  Yes it feeds the fans some love, but the theme and ongoing game dynamic the two heroes gets lost.  I liked that Flynn joined once or twice in the game (iirc, one time is at the gear tower where you meet Judith, and only for the last stretch).
I didn't care much for Patty either.  She's a fun enough character I guess, but...eh.  I also think it's weird that with Berseria we'll now have THREE female pirates in the series.

Maybe an unpopular opinion?  I'd love Vesperia 2, I think it's one of the few games that could do well with the ending we got, and Xillia 2 managed something good out of it.... maybe making up for the shite that was Symphonia 2 (and kinda-sorta ToD2... if not for it's amazing opening theme).

^ The whole situation has sucked.  It's been both sad and wonderful it's inspired a lot of copycats at least trying for something similar....but...

I debated posting this here or the YouTube thread, but eh...whatever.

Matthewmatosis has uploaded a SIX HOUR LONG review-analysis for Dark Souls.  Normally I don't think it's worth posting reviews for random YouTubers, but this guys is definitely 'a less is more kind' of deal (i.e. he's done hand-full of reviews), but also SERIES reviews where he's looked at the Zelda games and Mario games and individually examined them and their perks and legacy and all that whatnot.  He's not "soft" reviewer either, he gets into the nitty gritty and while I still wouldn't agree on all points, the reviews are impeccably thorough and well-written --- worth their own post.

How do you do a musical podcast with CASUAL THEMES and OMIT BREATH OF FIRE III'S 'CASUALLY' ??!?!??!?!

Bananas I tell you, absolute bananas!!!

On a serious note (not to say the above ISNT like TOTALLY serious D:) I was wondering, can we do a sort of "rpgFAN request" like what radios do or would that be an issue to implement?  Might be a fun way to involve the fans (even do like a shoutout or quick message themselves).
The Music topic on SocMed was a huge hit, so I was just wondering things.

@Dincrest: Yeah, "Field Demo 01" is really good. And is crazy to think how he's the same composer for Dark Souls.

I love when a composer can surprise you again.

I wouldn't mind paying a price for the swim suit costumes if it (a) unlocked them all and (b) unlocked some sidequest usually like how the games at least had them before.  Hell, I'm trying to meet Banco half way saying I'd pay, but it's sort of lame when it's forking of money just for the cosmetic change.  X2 at least had some fun with the 'no jacket' outfits which I thought was pretty cool (and I really liked the look of them more than the defaults in some cases).

I want to get it, but I might be way too tight on funds right now and wait it out as an XMas gift.... or use up my precious 'free game' coupon from our indie store.  Decisions, decisions. :?

EDIT: That Alisha picture in the OP.... Did UFOTable just give up on the picture because the feathers in her hat look like nothing. x)

Gotta agree with dice about AoT. I can't tell you how many times I started to get impatient while Armin or Eren prattled on and on about friendship or teamwork or believing in yourself.  It's a shame there is so much filler because almost every other aspect about the show is top notch. I think I may have read that subsequent seasons will attempt to stay more on task (read: just fight the damn titans!)

Unfortunately, the anime is mostly one for one with the manga, so yeah, get used to Bryce Papenbrook shouting about something to anyone within earshot, or failing that, himself. On the up side it gets better in the later half of the show when some of the other better characters (re: everyone who isn't Eren, Misaka or Armin) start getting more screen time and they start fighting a competent Titan.

(yeah but it's easier to glaze over words than to fast forward through Erin having a Shonen Sunday shout)  :D

I remember Moonbase being Great! for EXP... but never worth the effort.

Moonbase is shit exp considering you can get ~65,000 per monster on Styx.

memory.exe has crashed
