I used to ride polar bears to school. Backwards, against the wind so it felt less cold. :(

I crossed beaver dams.... feisty fuckers, what's that aboot?   Usually a glob of maple syrup would be needed to distract them.  If that didn't work, I'd fight em off with mah hockey stick.

I spent the first hour at work calling people about their Skyward Sword preorders... fucking hell, why do so many people sound sucked of any life force.  And why do so many sound like they're monkeys who just got on the phone after scratching and eating the crud off a monkeys back?

Really? Does EB out there not do the automated message thing yet? I got an automated message when AC Revelations came in last week. My first one in fact.

That's what I was thinking... I get text messages actually.

The backyard show my band was slated to headline tonight got shut down early by the cops, so we were among 3 or so bands who didn't get to play.

Noise complaints, or profanity?  Either way, sucks... grats on headlining though :P

ACR (and the rest that came out that week) was allegedly the first thing we've done it for.  It's rare.

OoT was pretty good at balancing introducing players to the setting/game and letting them quickly get into it, it'd be nice if the series could recapture that.

This is a good point. OoT is one of the few Zelda games I don't mind playing through the first hour or so time and time again. Oh, scratch that. One of the few 3D Zelda games. The first hour or two of Wind Waker and TP are awful a 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc. time through. It's just like "Hurry up!"

Majora's Mask was even better in regards to the 3D Zeldas. There, the combat tutorial was a fucking side quest. The only problem was that whole Deku Scrub business where you're forced down an entire cycle where you're either desperately trying to find your way around before time runs out if you're new or you're putzing around in the Deku Scrub playground area because you have the flower on day one and you're trying to squeeze out as many side quests as possible if you've played it before and you don't have anything better to do.

I know it's not really in the nature of the Zelda-spirit.... but I would love a sort of "Majora's Mask 2", at the very least, carrying over the mask concept, because I thought it was a brilliant mechanic.

I...loved...the new...last?  Community episode.... *sob*


Apparently the ratings got jacked given the threat of losing the show,

...and that's the haps.

D:

I'm sorry.  Never a good feeling.  Cancelled creativity....

This game still doesn't interest me, but I might snag it if the reviews are good.

I dunno... there's something lame about giving orders to a monster half a child's size to fight for me... and cruel. :P
But hey, a Level-5 RPG has been missing for a long time.

If anything the visuals will melt your eyes.


They're really not, though.  Anyone else find it lame our main hero is a typically dressed brow-haired boy with red and blue clothing?  I know that Japanese tend to be overly flamboyant, but the kid is boring looking.

The visuals are okay.  I think the backgrounds are outdoing anything in terms of character models... even moreso than that cat king or whatever the heck...  The backgrounds, like I said, is absolutely amazing stuff (I just wanted to emphasize).

I find Ghibli overrated, and I have some faith in Level-5.... BUT, I do have faith in this to be a good game despite my shit talking.

Just as well, because he's European. Even if you were insane enough to fly over there JUST FOR ZELDA it'd come out in the US by the time you landed anyway.

Most game stores probably got it on Friday when it was released in the UK.  If you find a private game store, they'd more than likely break street date. And voila!  Trip to Europe saved (or still in but you go to tour! :D )

Given what I've seen and heard of this game, I'd rather play FFXIII.

I've played both; 13 is worse. At least Neptunia's dialog and characters aren't 'quite' as annoying and the game presents more of a challenge, not to mention at least Neptunia doesn't pretend that it's story means anything. 13 only beats it in the graphics department in both quality and dungeon design.

I agree with this in the fact the FF13 cast is never happy except in a rare cutscene where the point is for them let a smile out.


Atelier Rorona, and Atelier Totori say hello.

Considering human tendencies I might actually have to call you a 'liar' on this one Dice. XD There's no way possible you can convince me you have neither picked up a discount DVD or game in your entire life that you either have a guilty pleasure for or were curious about it; despite it not being a Blockbuster/AAA title.
Depends.  Guilty pleasures are arbitrary, and yeah I'm talking about a game I love, not what other people think is a 3/10 or a 9/10, it's what *I* think is a 10/10.  I don't keep nor do I enjoy playing crappy games.  Guilty pleasure movies are another thing, but the movies I have are my gold.  The mentality of spending countless hours on a game that sucks, something I've seen quite a bit (maybe not sucks, but certainly "meh" against), is a waste of short life -- there's plenty more to do and play.

If a discount game sucks, then I'm happy I paid little, and still try to get rid of it.  Good games I'll never give. :D

The review on the site is mixed.

Is the general consensus that it's worth picking up for $30 or not picking up at all?

I refuse on counts I didn't want to waste time and money on something I'd only "like a bit".  I don't know how your barometer works.
7076  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: November 19, 2011, 11:20:41 AM
I beat Tales of Eternia on PSP!  The ending was so simple it sucked balls.  Also, and speaking it came AFTER Destiny, has the more bland set of characters ever.  But makes up for it with some of the prettiest PSX backgrounds you'll ever see.
7077  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Neptunia on: November 19, 2011, 11:08:37 AM
I'll never understand the reasoning for wanting and sitting through (a many-houred RPG no less) a "sub-par" game.
My games have GOTTA rank higher... =/

I don't want the game because the cutscenes looked absolutely inane and stupid and recycled.

Big surprise.  Twilight Princess' beginning was pretty dragged out; funny enough for a simple enough game.

One of the local game stores is selling it before street date.  I wanted to snag it despite my preorder, steal some assholes copy and say I had a preorder.  MWAHAHAHAHA

But alas, I could get some work done for a project and decided against it.  SIIGH. =)

Except isn't one of the points of Zelda (and Nintendo games in general) is that it doesn't require you to play it on a computer keyboard.

I'm starting to think you've lost your mind given how completely irrelevant that is.

Euses gained my love.

Sorry Aeo, I'll just chalk it up to you were tired when you posted that.
