I have a close friend who is manager at a gamestop and he sort of demanded that, whether I play it now or later, I pre-order. He claimed it was gonna become as hard/harder to find than Xenoblade and put 5 down on it, on my account and I just got the "pick up in the AM" notification. LoL

Something tells me that the tl;dr of this is that Gamestop has plans to fuck with the release like they did with XBC so that they can charge top dollar for it. Said XBC fuckery basically involved labeling most of the stock as used (even though they weren't) then stocking one on the shelf at a time and claim that there's a very high demand, hence their "need" to jack up the price. Once they can't realistically carry on the charade then suddenly the store shelves will have plenty of used copies at the regular used or new game rate (Important to note was that part of the problem was indeed due to NoA/NoJ underestimating the demand for a game that took over two years to come out in a territory that normally gets them before Europe and that word of mouth from Japan and Europe didn't help matters; just not to the extent that Gamestop led buyers to believe).

Basically, wait a few months/a year for the price to come down (or just get it digitally).

Fucking hell (and before anybody asks why I didn't post this in the XBCX thread, I didn't feel that this was worth double posting for).

I'd be more upset if I was a collector or liked playing as him.  What I AM worried about is some fancy unlock for XCX to get his sword or something.  

What a bunch of bullshit, Nintendo.  

The more news about Amiibo I hear, the less I like them.

Playing Tales of Hearts R and I reached the Central Continent whose name I keep reading as Opa! I'm mostly wondering what the hell is up with the Twilight Forest. No one mentions anything about how weird it is.

Yeah I like how the girl is scared of the bridge and not the isolated leaf whirlwinds or the flowing UP waterfalls.  I like it so far for being the most creatively imaginative place so far (with completely mis-matched music).

I'm slowly turning the volume lower and lower.  I kinda like it after coming off the heels of FF7.
Voice acting and humour tends to really try to sell humour, IMO.  I prefer more subtle dialogue to be funny, so some of the slap stick in the Tales games feels like a lot of yucks coming from the characters getting offended about dumb shit.

Hisui's dialogue in particular is 50% talking shit to you.

I like her, who is she.

Lupita Nyong'o, award winning actress for 12 Years a Slave. x)

I remember having only the FF8 demo when I was younger and I did nothing but farm Gnats and T-Rexors in the training area cause I think the demo ends just after that point. :p

Also randomly I remember the Charlie's Angels movie having two kids playing that bit in the game.

When I first started FF8 I thought at least half the game was going to take place in Balamb Garden with the party going out into the world to complete various missions. I still hold that that would have been a better game.

You're probably right too.  Then witches, moon monsters, and an orphanage happened.

I rmemeber the demo for the big town mission when it still played that song that "allegedly" rips off the theme from The Rock (it did)

I do remember the Charlie's Angel's thing, and Lupita now makes me think there too:

You are right as usual Glass, I probably picked the worst place to start a fight about RPGs. But probably my biggest disappointment was that instead of getting information of why I am wrong and what there is to like in these games. I got the problem is just me and my crazyness instead of people actually defending the games individually.  I guess its just a common tactic though if you can't prove someone wrong, just prove they are wrong as a person. Its a pretty brilliant tactic really because of that I got heated and lost my composure so everything I said became discredited.

If you agree with Glass, then don't forget the last part he said, cuz he's extra right there too...  Stop taking it personally!! :P

A bunch of ToZ stream videos, even one that shows off some attachments, and how dungeons are explored (and omg it actually looks more interesting that the entirety of Xillia and Xill2).

^ Probably yet another reason I've been so hand-held oriented this gen is for that reason (but I can see why you'd be against double-dipping of course.  I've only double-dipped for two recent titles [so PSN/Wii classics aside]: Vesperia and TitS).

Tales of Hearts R

= I don't care about name changes, I really don't (certainly changing ToS Lloyd's dad's name from "Dike" to "Dirk" was a good change).  But when the game keeps saying SHING over his new name Kor, I get a *bit* distracted to say the least!  Also, I'm not sure the Japanese audio is 1:1 in-sync with the English dialogue (which CAN make sense sometimes for creating a more Western-flow in dialogue I guess)

= Lack of HD cutscenes and original Japanese voices tells you the Vita version was as much a budget re-release for Japan as it was for us. :P

= You know all those complaints about bland/pastel graphics for Tales games?  I really wish more developers would take advantage of bloom effects to, literally, glaze over a good part of the problem.  That said, I adore how smooth the animation is so far.

= Dear lord, I've been playing FF7 for so long on my Vita I forgot how pristine and crisp actual Vita games look on this console.


= I like how Shing and friends wear stuff that visibly looks like it's from 200 years in the future with ultra polymer synthetic ultra fabric and haute patterning made from genuine super-leather, but you arrive at your backwater village where everyone looks like a middle-ages peasant. x)

= As a graphic-er: The menu is lovely and all, but the mirrored background image annoys me like crazy.

Bought it...

Going into it with the lowest expectations though.  So hopefully I'll be pleasantly surprised!?

Interstellar? Big Hero 6?
Seeing Interstellar tomorrow with my son.
I'm surprised no one has commented on them yet.

A lot of the really average reviews (working against Nolan's fame I guess) might have something to do with that.  It's also three hours long. :S

I'm kinda more excited for Big Hero 6 to tell a fun story than Interstellar's dramatic space opera[?], but I've been doing assignments when I haven't been farting around on here.  Hopefully I'll see both soon as well.

I like this [gaming] three-way so far.
