New Hires! Be nice to them, unless it's Wild Armor or Monsoon, then it's business as usual.


Stop pouting Wild.... Get back to work!

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.

Not sure if this is "News" or for the Youtube thread.... but uh... Now presenting: Sonic Boom, the next "Sonic '06".

Lord knows I've complained several times about the increasingly dry dungeons these games have.  To be clear I still don't agree with your list, it simplifies things and still suffers from some stubbornness on your part (and a thick pair of rose-tinted glasses), but I will say you're right as far as "dungeoning" goes.  It's probably why I've taken up with puzzle games or maintained a steady interest in the Zelda series.
72  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: November 09, 2014, 10:20:10 PM
I don't know anyone else who owns the game. :/

Why your friendly neighbourhood Dicey of course!  I think a number of us here got it. (PS3 or Vita is the next question)

I'm sorry about my previous post for that it wouldn't of even been fair to use Ar Nosurge as game because its not even really a game. Its more like a visual novel that crapped out something that resembled a game that you pay 50 dollars for.

You know, no matter how good your points might be on the state of the industry, when you bash for no reason a game you don't like, you instantly lose any support you might have gotten for your arguments from the people who liked it.

Plus, I can only with Dice here with there still being a lot of games that are good out there, and there were several below average games as well during the SNES, PSX and PS2 eras. Refusing to see it, glorifying only the past and treating the newer games as something that isn't worthy of no one's time is having your judgment clouded by nostalga.

 You are correct but I also gave up no point in trying to change peoples minds even if I can defend all my points and no one can say anything but these so called good games exist out there so spend like 1000-1500 dollars buying every system so you might get to play 1 or 2 goods games on them yay for that. If nostalgia was buying one system and being satisfied with my purchase I am guilty thank god for nostalgia.

  If we were talking about anime we could probably all be friends I spend 15 bucks a month for endless anime some are bad, some are good but who cares its a great deal. But with games that is a lot of money over time to waste trying to find a good game in all the really really bad games they make. So whats my options find a site like this that does reviews but a lot of good it does me most of the time because they rate everything either good or above average regardless if the review is telling me the game sucks.

Change our minds about what though??  There's stuff to love and hate in each generation, but you're trying to make us take one road and stick with one answer to a question I'm not even too sure I'm reading correctly (I think?).  This goes both ways too since we can't seem to change your mind otherwise as well.

If you're worried about game price tags, then dig into a Steam sale or random PSN Summer Sale or whatever else.  If you're worried about finding what's good without wasting the money then there are reviews, demos, and Youtube LPs to show you anything you want.  Maybe one day we can have a streaming service or another 'rental'-type service for games (and there are some for the latter), but sometimes you gotta spend a few bucks to get what you want.  Maybe you're the type of gamer who is just reluctant and unable to enjoy modern titles --- it happens, you get older, and games change in a direction that is ill-suited with you.

Not every title you play is going to be a hit with you, but you're not the only one gaming either.  I'm happy with the titles that make me nostalgic, and I'm happy with what's to come.

So I've been playing Dragon's Crown, and actually quite enjoying it.

I'm up to the part where I'm looking for the nine talismans and every quest has a "b" branching option.

I've kind of hit a brick wall. I feel like I'm massively underpowered while trying to do the branching quests and trying to do the ones by myself is impossible.

I'm level 18 and a wizard with companions around level 23/24.

And yes, I am trying to complete quests but I'm not sure where to go for some of them (like the owl bears).

Any tips or am I just in for a whole lot of grinding for the time being?

You play online with RPG-loving friends who can help you out! :)

Mixed feelings about the episode.

I liked the bittersweet ending but the "power of love' conquering the Cyber-Men just made me throw my hands up in the air with frustration.

It sucked in the Fifth Element, it sucked in the Matrix and it sucks in Doctor Who.

I like the Fifth Element because that whole movie is pretty 'out there' and painting a future universe with all that psychedlia and tackiness of the 90s; Ruby Rod being the totem pole of that idea.  I still think it was fun till TBS ran it a billion times.

Doctor Who is pretty out there too, but it selects how it wants to tell a story.  I liked the "Mummy Express" episode because I thought it was a cool "horror/mystery" even if its concepts are ludicrous.  I liked "The Janitor" for making a goofy high-school love triangle plot with more emphasis on characters than a villain.

But "A Death in Heaven" showed me a bizarre, under-developed concept of the afterlife, a great concept for death/cybermen that also goes under-developed, and served up hammy concepts like its use of the "power of love" that felt like a poor solution to a problem to a big problem (so...like...are there no bodies in cemeteries anymore???).

For what was a pretty powerful season (to me, of course), I thought the first and last episodes were pretty terrible for all intents and purposes.  Dalek, Forest, and Sherwood being serviceable, but the rest ranking pretty high to me.
