I've seen some players recommend you play it on Vita. It supposedly eliminates the loading times and slowdown, and the game will play just like a regular PSP game.

Let's see if I can find a (user) review of some sort... Here you go

That's interesting.  I've got a Vita, maybe I should give that a shot...

Agreed.  Thanks a million for this Tomara!
I want to know of Muppy the Great!!

Zelda 3DS - It took me forever to figure out which dungeon I should start with. I guess it really was the Swamp Palace, but I honestly thought I'd have, you know, choices. I didn't. The Swamp palace was the only one I could access without the Power Gloves (Giant's Gloves?). Which wouldn't be so bad, except I guess the Power/Giants? Gloves are in Death Mountain. Getting there was hell enough, but the place seems way too hard for me right now. Guess I'll try Thieve's Hideout next...I think I just need a password but I'm not too sure what that entails...

You do.

You can start with just about any dungeon though (IIRC).  It's about where you merge and the items you have rather than "what comes first".  The Eastern Palace is a good choice to start and so is the Swamp Palace (for the exclusive-item in that dungeon) and I think it's only one of few dungeons that require what you do there to open a future dungeon.

This is probably the most CONCISE guide for how to get to each dungeon --- they just need some Ravio items.

The Thieves Hideout requires a password, some residents in town "sing" parts of it.

I think I've heard that if you get the PSP version digitally (not on a UMD) it runs a lot better.  If was not properly optimized to work with the slow read speed of UMDs.

If anyone can confirm that I'd buy the game right the f*ck now.

Yeah you're not kidding about the "Tales of Shining" going on --- and it probably doesn't help that I really like what I saw.

But man.... Any chance we'll even see it?

Tales of Zesteria Surprise Anime DLC isssss........


Looks cool.....Yeeep. 


...I'll keep my expectations in check considering the licensing stuffs that make it unlikely we'll see it here. :(

That video is not applicable to the current version of RE6. Capcom did this to QTEs after taking feedback. Because, you now, as a company they care about their product and stuff.

You can check other changes made to RE6 in the same page.*

Thanks for the tip, but it's still a funny song.
67  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: September 20, 2014, 08:28:14 PM
Agreed that it was great ending even if it was for shock-value....

Very much so. I bought it, too. I really believe that, if it came down to it, Ludger would

kill the others to protect Julius. I liked the blood; you're right, it did make it personal. It would have been even better if, when they zoom out, we saw the party's bodies lying around. That would have really brought it home for me.

Wo-woah!  Hold your horses there.  As is, I think this is the first Tales game to *ever* be so liberal in showing blood, let alone corpses.  We'll see where Zesty goes from here, but I did like the series was less afraid of being mature with Xill 2

Remember this boring bullshit?  God it's so awkward...

I played RE6 co-op with Dice and loved every minute.

The game is stupid but fun.

Good dumb fun.  Agreed.  Generally I think there is a lack of good co-op out there in general, so I'm super happy with the RE's as of late.  I agree that the QTEs can get pretty bad, but I really recommend just enjoying the game with a co-op partner, then, worst case, you have someone to complain about it with or just act like a goofball with (certainly overusing the "shout out" is one way).

Can't wait for the new RE: Revelations title.

Love the liberties you took with spelling 'suikoden' there.  I hope you find all them pups!!!

Just (intentionally) got the bad end in Xillia 2. So awesome!


Not that I've seen the good/normal endings yet, but I kind of wish the Bad end was the true one. So atypical for a JRPG and I loved the emotion of having to kill characters I've spent two games with.

I might change my mind when I see the other endings. We'll see!

It's was so strange, but cool, yet tragic to say I was both astonished and almost a little "offended" that you see the Xillia's cast, or rather their BLOOD on Ludger.  It kind of felt personal, y'know?  Well, I mean, as far as game characters can inspire that (and admittedly, Xillia's cast isn't really close to being my favourite).

Agreed that it was great ending even if it was for shock-value....
71  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Random and Amazing Pictures, Please! on: September 20, 2014, 01:12:22 AM
^ Agreed :P

Today was this... then tomorrow....

Maybe one day.

Narcoleptic dog.  An adorably sad condition.

Their Mario Kart 8 super pack was a great deal, IMO.  And despite the pretty hefty DLC price tag, I wouldn't discount it if the new stuff was *that good*.  So I can't wait to see what they have in store.  I still think they need to "Smash Bros" the fuck out of this and add that ONE SUPER-RETRO character.... and Pink-haired Link.  C'MON, that's the EASIEST SKIN EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
73  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: September 20, 2014, 12:48:52 AM
You would not believe how much stuff I've done in A Link Between Worlds...and I've only beaten two dungeons so far. :P

Honestly I love just 'conquering' that game.  Yeah, on one hand because it's kind of easy, but on the other because it [finally] let's you do whatever the hell you want.  The series really needed this and I didn't know that till ALBW.  I also love that the 'secret caves' are actual puzzle rooms (than those countless and stupid holes in the ground created by Ocarina of Time's secret mole-people society).

The Hero Mode is slightly more of a testament to your mastery of Hyrule-Redux-Land in knowing where everything is and how to get it as soon as possible and the "best possible order" to do it in (*cough*SwampPalaceFirst*cough*).  But what I love that most is where it lacks in that triple-A 'epic-ness' of the other main console titles, it makes up for in just being tons of fun.  I've never said "playing Zelda" more literally than to just "engage and enjoy".

^ Don't stop playing until you've acquired the Disco Phial. The best item in any lego game ever.

I honestly opened a new chapter in co-op-ing with these Lego games.  I look forward to any and all things even if things are a bit rickety from time to time.

More Theatrhythm.

It's hard to talk about this game...what's there really to say....so POINTS.

= Yeah,like Darlion, and like the first game, some of the Battle stages on Ultimate are crazy as hell to beat (i.e.; I won't get THAT good ever).  Battle with the Four Fiends and THe Clash on the Big Bridge *still* chief among the ones that kill me in seconds.  (IIRC, there is a party of "white mages" that can basically mean so long as you tap at SOME rhythm that resembles the song, you'll win; but Gamefaqs has to answer that... I think it was like Cecil, Minwu, Princess Serah and someone else).

= REALLY?  A collection of black crystals gets JUST THAT ONE CHARACTER?  Fuck it.  Overrated defined.

= I feel bad that Zack doesn't get the 'character title bonus' for Final Fantasy VII.  I mean shit, cheers to him for getting his OWN game, but no cred at all for his first 'acting credit'??  Poor fella, forgotten by time...

= I feel bad, but the FF I-III songs really annoy me more often than not.  The bleeps and bloops hurt my ears and sound like ass on speakers, the songs are short, and while the melodies ARE memorable....they're not terribly melodic.

= Jesus H the music for Type-0 is doing more good to hype me up more than the TGS footage.

= Nothing crueller or harder than who to pick when you fill up character crystals...

= Stupid point but the "plot" prologue lasted two minutes longer than it needed to... i.e.; it didn't need it at all.  LET ME PLAY.

= On that note...Card Crystarium.  Micro-managing, collect-a-thon, stats-booster..... waste of time?

= I love the FFV main theme a million times for the intro screen than the one in the first game.  Highly underrated song...and OST actually.

= I like playing with buttons more, but I'm not as good at it.  Weird?

= What song plays for the Card Viewer now??  

= Another dumb point but I hate when a song is picked more for the "important part it plays at" than based on whether its good alone.  Rather, I find some of the music selection kind of predictable than what i'd want.  Obviously this problem is a lot less of one in this game...what with the massive song selection (but still those 'choice few' missing).

= Main party: Zidane (for those FMS/Steals), Terra (BMS/Magic/Cure/First FF character from the one I played and beat), Cloud (so strong), and _____...?  Who else is good?  I keep flipping around.

Clearly it originated in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

...what are we talking about?

Haha I was totally thinking Roger Rabbit too. Reference was lost on me otherwise

^ I'm actually at the same part in WA5 after picking it up again for the first time in 3 years.

Lego Lord of the Rings

The boyfriend and I have been playing this the last few days.  It's a ton of fun, really beautifully brings Middle Earth to life, and.... takes some pretty funny liberties with the script in a series of slapstick of background gags (certainly makes the source material a bit more light-hearted).

It's got some dubious programming, but there's a lot more here than I thought it'd be; a lot of optional content for one.
