With most 3D games, seems like analog is bigger than the directional pad.  Now to have an uneven match between the analog and the action buttons... I feel like we got another lop-sided N64 controller, where you're holding the right 2/3's of the controller diagonally.

*sigh*.  I wish we just got a new GameCube controller.
I still hate this tablet thing too.  I'm really hoping they work on making that comfy for human hands, it just seems downright clunky for any sort of hardcore gaming.

You forgot about the PS3 version of Vesperia, which had way more content than the 360 version. Didn't even get a dlc option for it on 360. It's stuff like this that makes me ride the jp onry train.

I hope I am just being a pessimistic fuckhole, but whamco blandai has shit in my cereal before, so I keep a realistic feet firmly on the ground approach to this.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, very little was missed with Vesperia PS3.  Most importantly, it doesn't save the train wreck of a story it was.  I'm only sad we lost out on a non-copy/paste bonus dungeon.  The other dungeon that was added, meant to be hit thanks to storyline, was an annoying dark/light mechanic sewer dungeon in Dahngrest.  In the PS3 version, you had to cross it, it took about 20 minutes.  In the 360 version, you just had to walk to the other side of town....

If anything, I'd yell at Namdai for keeping files on the 360 that have coding for Patty and English voice clips for Rita's Indignation (fishy fishy).

I'm surprised MS still cares about exclusivity by this point anyways.  The game is OOP, not like they're really making money off it.

I'm surprised there has been so little in regards to P5 thus far.  Hopefully after new ShinMeg, we get nuthin' but.  I have nothing against handhelds, but who's gonna hate an HD experience??

WHy are we still on this "it stays in Japan ALL THA TIME" train still.  We got Graces didn't we?

Pessimism over the state of the industry combined with a track record with gaping holes. Though given the output seems to have been dialed back some I'd be more optimistic about reliably seeing these come over, and Xillia 2 would imply skipping Xillia also skips Xillia 2, and thus going years without new ones.

The only really major titles we missed were the handhelds and, the sort of odd-ball of the bunch, Rebirth and ToD2 [J].  But of all these, I think the only one worth really weeping about was missing the PS2 ToD remake and MAAAYBE Hearts.  I'd raise an eyebrow if anyone here was so keen on wanting the sort of half-assed spin-offs.

Anyways, I feel like the posts from the UK Tales Teams are being ignored, but I certainly would rather hear "stay tuned" than "no plans".

It would be mean to be going around Tweeting this on a weekend for it just to be a big, fat, lie.  I'm sure they are thinking about it.  WHy are we still on this "it stays in Japan ALL THA TIME" train still.  We got Graces didn't we?

Started watching a new Canadian show called Continuum.

Very cyberpunk, very interesting.

Pretty good, especially for a Canadian show.

It looks interesting, I was thinking of checking it out... but why does saying "Canadian shows" leave a weird taste in my mouth???  It's all...syrupy and strange. >=|

Quote from: Flamfas
"You about to be trolled by team Avatar."

Oh my god, Bolin always has the best lines.

Also, very intense. Sure hope Korra can do something about her predicament. Maybe she'll finally hit the Avatar State and do some Airbending?

Bloodbending making a return is also great. Wonder how he's doing it without the full moon.

And lastly, flashbacks again ... and Tarlock was on trial during Aang's years? (when he looks to be 30?; or 130 technically) Is Tarlock using Bloodbending to do some sort of anti-aging thing? Also, is he Amon? Bloodbending might be a way to cripple someone's bending, idk ...

Is Tarlock actually Yakone?

Legend of Korra!!
Episode 08 Thoughts:
- Great/10!
- Some of the backgrounds look...really rushed this week.  Especially in around the beginning.  Something's wrong if I noticed it anyways, I usually look, but never find it bad.  Got better near the end at least
- I think that line from the non-Bender, "You're our Avatar too!" will play a big part of the show's major concept/idea for what they want in Korra.
- Seeing Korra and Tarrlok duke it out?  *gasp*  Legend of Korra, and how!!  Korra, was brilliantly animated, and her earth-bending was boss.
- Speaking of Boss... Asami driving?  Haha, she goes one-handed too!  Deeam.
- Mako and Bolin really got support-only treatment this week.  I did like Bolin and Ikki meeting. x)
- C'MON!!!!  WORST CITY COUNCIL EVER.  They're so easily swayed, I could find a reason to kill innocent people because a peanut told me to do it and they'd still be cool with it.
- I like that Tenzin never fails to get some "haha"s in.  Calling that idiot Chief of Police on being a terrible Chief of Police was golden.
- No Bei Fong. D:
- With Korra's quick reaction to Ikki's "she likes Mako too!" and her reaction to being kicked out of the room... it struck me too anime or at least too over-exaggerated.  Asami's death glare through the rear-view mirror felt a bit forced as well.
- Fire-breathing Korra!

Final Thought:
- I'm not saying anything about flash backs, they're too ambiguous still by this point.  I am happy they brought back the inability to air-bend fact and how it bugs Korra.  Still... in these flashbacks, why is Katara so..absent?  I think that, if anything, is intentional by this point.  I think Katara's bloodbending and Yakkols may be have some connection.

Yeah, I don't get the hate for this so far. It looks cool for a trailer. I'd prefer to understand why anyone cares about this at all seeing as the first one is still jp onry. What makes anyone think we'll see an english version of the original, much less this sequel?

Xillia had quite a few faults, I think people are worried about the same thing + a bad case of sequelitis.
I *guess* I'm happy the other Tales artist is back.  I like this new hero...definitely better than the tube top Emil wore.

I love/wonder how the medieval-esque pic will tie into the game. :D

If sequels means...
ToP ----> ToS = Awesome

If sequels means...
ToS ----> ToS2 = Avoid

Anyways, I hope you're not risking the world for the loli... I'd take off five stars from the game just for that.

Finally getting around to Nier.

Why is dialog in JRPGs so ridiculous?

"....tell me about this black book, how does it work?"
"what? it's just a song. I don't know"
"what kind of idiot singss a song without knowing what it means!?"

Are you asking about the sudden chatter going from about a book to a song??
IIRC the song's lyrics told of a book with powerz (i.e.; Weiss). He was asking about what the song's details to use Weiss as per the original plan to cure evil disease. 

I thought it was charmin'.

Nearly done with The Last Story, just need to finish up the epilogue...

All in all, nice game, but not exactly something special. Not counting a few nasty (boss) battles, fighting is a ton of fun and the game has the decency to not overstay its welcome. A 25 hour investment should be plenty to wrap it up. The story was a big bag of cliche, though. At times it tried so hard to be a tear jerker, but just failed miserably because the drama it's going for is so overdone. And I still don't like the bloom-effect. I made Yurick's clothes a bit too light and now he looks like a walking talking lightbulb! It's giving me horrible flashbacks to Bakshi's Lord of the Rings...

Eugh.  I wanna support XSeed and all their endeavors... makes me sad thinking this game just ain't worth the pesos.

Booted up Star Ocean 3 for nostalgia's sake.  Came to the Shrine of Kaddan.  Seriously...what the fuck, game.  I love this SO3's battle system to BITS, but the dungeons are absolute torture -- specifically in the game's nasty habit of 2-3 dungeons in a row, one leading into the next.  The Shrine of Kaddan is especially brutal, the lack of guidance in what the hell to do can be a drag to figure out...

Anyways, to describe the rest: ... sidekick... sidekick... sidekick (300% Cancel Bonus!!!) -- Victory!

7484  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust announces new Atelier game: Atelier Meruru on: May 29, 2012, 01:48:16 PM
Here's my usual question for Atelier games:

How does time work? and how lenient is it?

Not very, but apparently this one is better than the others in the Arland series.  But I'm holding out for Ayesha which, apparently, is a lot more lax on it.  I suck with the time management demands. D:

Rewatching Dark City.  Kiefer Sutherland is so terrible in this movie. :)

The movie is so, so B-grade it's technically terrible... but so cool on so many other levels that I love it. :D
