what are you guys talking about? i dont recall abyss having bad load times at all. at least not when compared with suikoden V.

I don't recall Suikoden V having bad loading times? Unless I'm just really patient or something.

Honestly, these RPGs are mostly fine there, though it's always welcome to squash out more. It's, say, late Squaresoft PS1 RPGs, Lost Odyssey, or Morrowind on the Xbox where load times are a serious issue, especially Morrowind. Entirely too long to load a save game, which is hell if you're in a tight spot.

Suiko V's loading times were one of four reasons I stopped playing.  I hated that they were about the same length to load either a giant city or simply a tiny room.  Battles weren't any better, and a high encounter rate made it worse.  One town (the water and boats one) *needs* you to walk through numerous boats to get to the elder's house... and this being a suiko game, you need to go there a few times.

Played Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth.  Someone traded it in, and I took it.
When I first played this game, I didn't understand, I was young and immature to the Tri-Ace cacophony of different skills and item creation options and all that bullshit.

Trying to get the A ending... it's making me nervous.  The list of requirements is both scary and almost unreasonable difficult to make Lenneth happiest by the ending.  C'est la vie.  The game has been pretty easy, sad I didn't pick the Hard Mode... I might still, it's just a matter of re-scrolling through so much damn text.

I like using those dips for the pizza crust, myself.

Seriously, people don't eat the crusts? That's the BEST GODDAMN PART. Put some butter on that sucker or some maraniara and life is heaven.

Pizza does not go to waste for me. I don't really eat it much anymore, though. Lactose intolerant. It's gotta be the BEST pizza for me to eat it (along with lactaid pills).

Hahaha!!  Crust is the best damn part?  Love it.  Though, I don't think I could ever call it that.  My main schtik is the pepperoni.  OOoooo baby

i'm not giving namco a pass on this especially if it does indeed turn out to be a bare bones port of the ps2 version that i played years ago. 3d is not an extra feature.

What if it's just like the PS2 version but has better load times?


Oddly enough, that's whats selling me.
I'm ashamed to admit I used my cousin's cheat device to have gald... I wanted to grind as little as possible.

It's been awhile so maybe I don't remember, but is there anything that really required grinding?

To respond to Leyv: there was a city (Luke's home I think) that had strong ones ahead of time.
 To respond to you though: ...yeah, I realized that after I mastered free-running.

did anyone watch Glee? They did a version of rebecca black's "friday"

No, I did not watch Glee. That show is too gay even for me.


Figures they would do something stupid like that though.

Respect where it's due; they did a better job than RB did for her own single.

And Star made me laugh with his critique. 
6338  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: May 11, 2011, 05:44:05 PM
No. But I'm in charge here when it comes to Starmongoose's viewing habits.

You have responsibility over his shoes, hair, and restaurant etiquette

I demand to see a lawyer. 

Meanwhile; Star!!  Oi!  Hair, grow it out, to your back!  Don't gimme that look, NOW.  I got you some Uggs too.

Most of those would have had decent sales and thus I can understand why people are angry / cynical.
We've known it for a long time: they only bring things that they know will sell really really well or things that people paid them to bring here.
That's a terrible attitude to have when you set foot in the world of game localization and is also why even though NISA brings terrible quality games here (horrendous VA, bugs, poor translation), I'll forever respect them more than BAMCO.

If only their games were half as good. :P

Goofy, laugh-at-me, statement: I actually hope they make the boobs smaller.  Goddamn I hated the artwork for the game sometimes.

Pro tip: Soul Calibur fans loves boobies (that's official art by the way).

Haha I love those profile shots xD

I've never been one to play a fighting game other than Smash for hours on end.

But, Smash Bros. is not a fighting game...

Certainly not a racing game...?

Anyways, yaaay.  I wonder who the secret fun character will be.  This is a renter otherwise, I've never been one to play a fighting game other than Smash for hours on end.

Maybe I should check out this Community thing

Start from season 1. Season 2 started off sort of weak but it's come through in fine form.

Also, don't listen to Dice.

...I said something bad?
6343  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces confirmed for NA on: May 11, 2011, 05:09:49 PM
Shit.  I want TotA, but not a 3DS right now... maybe I'll just buy TotA and wait for the inevitable 3DS price drop.

Not even Squeenix releases bonus director's cuts here (or whatever they call them; Ultimanias and Final Mixes and all that BS).  You actually think Namco would?  And after the first run-in with a spin off title... or both run-ins (Radiant Myth, and ToS2) are we really crying about not seeing a few low-budget titles?  We've seen the majority of the mothership titles one at least one console, I think that's more than enough to be thankful for, especially considering the pretty shit situation J-things and RPGs are in nowadays unless it's it's got two "F"s smacked on the cover. 

I think the fact we haven't gotten spin-offs and budget re-releases is a kinda weak argument.  The only one I'm sd they didn't, which I nabbed online in English anyhow, was the EU re-release of ToE, but hey, they got that one.

My boyfriend is nuts about it.  I think it's okay, there's definitely way better, but the show has no shortage of obscure and wacky.  It's great having Chevy Chase back though, he's an amazing prick in the show.
