Dead or Alive Paradise. That should keep you busy for the rest of your life. ;)

Perfect for the married man. =)

I don't do fighting games. Even fighting games with excessive boobage. I can just imagine the look on my wife's face.

The Star Ocean games are tempting, too. I've only ever played a little bit of 3. I think it got too hard or something, so I stopped. The battles were fun, though.

If SO3 was too hard, 2 is just right.  The story was written by a 12 year old, but the rest, especially skills system is great.

Did any of you guys import Tales of Graces (Wii or version)? If so how does it compare to the other Tales game.

A number of people placed it as the second best Tales game, higher than Vesperia though.

Numerous posts earlier back cite it with the best battle system of the series.

Yesterdays episode of Community was incredible.

I just watched it.  loveddd it.  Loved the "remixed" (premixed?) gothic/classical opening.

I look up a "female question" once on the net (TMI?) and I get a number of baby ads.
Another creepy one... but c'mon, this one SERIUSLY can't be serious... is it?
Take all the hariest nations and you clearly get this ...




I found this one at some less-than-reputable websites.  ...what I hate about this image is what it connotes to me.  Some freaky dude smiling with a check and arms around some smiling woman who looks like was cut off so she couldn't be identified.  Clearly she's making that much money/hr on hookin'.

Wow this thread exploded.Very good.

I guess no one here cares for Symphonia 2.I must have been the only one who finished it least of all enjoy it.

THEY DIDN'T MAKE A SEQUEL. I DENY THIS!

Laguna... it happened....and it was terrible.... SHH!  Shhhh, my friend, it's okay, I know...

*ahem*

...thats sad.I am truly alone


Yeah, that game was pathetic.
-god awful bland graphics (they actually went a blend of pastel and grey)
-music was a cheap rehash of original
-an unlikeable a lead almost as much a Shinji from NGE
-weird-ass prerequisites for the best ending
-depressing endings otherwise
-lame way to bring back the former Tales cast who have decided to stick with what they're wearing for two whole years
-uninspiring battle system only emphasized by pissy controls
-monster collecting?  Really?? What has Nintendo done to the world...

God, at least you fuckers can import.

Konami hasn't made a mainline Suikoden game for 5 years.

Suikoden 4 and 5.... sucked.
Rather, 4 sucked, and 5 bored me half to death to finish it.  Battles took like a minute.... to load things.

2 and 3 are the only real ones in my mind.  Hopefully the Pachinko game or whatever means it hasn't been completely phased out. But man, something like the Suiko-verse on a current gen system other than handheld might not be easy (for starters, 108 unique 3D-HD models.... brrrrr)

I have both 999 and Ghost Trick and love them to death.


They don't have nearly the kind of devout following the Tales games do, though. So why are they so devoted?

Heck, if Growlanser fans were that stubborn, we might have gotten more than three games. :P

Because they love the gameplay?

More than that.  even if the story sucks, the world tends to be unique and usually filled to the brim (Eternia had two parallel worlds about to crash into each other.... that's awesome!).
THe characters are usually all enjoyable or have a few stand outs for interesting (Yuri having recently eaten the whole cake for that), and the game tries to have fun along the way.  Be it in light-hearted dialogue, skits, silly side-quests (and serious ones that further develop characters and parameters for ass-kicking), and generally likable back-story the RPG gamers have trouble doing without.
Gameplay becomes the other hot ticket, the game has numerous difficulty levels, valuable characters (I've noticed Banco balances them quite well), tons of shit to collect and interesting battle mechanics to throw in some twists to play.

C'est vrai?

Where were girls like Dice when I was in high school?

I'm unique dammit, UNIQUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm fine, I swear. I'm cool.

On the otherside of all that though, It's been lonely. =/
I got only a few people (2-3, then this place) I even bother talking about it with.

Anyway.  I thought Ghost Trick has, thus far, been a really strong contender for best DS game this year (yeah yeah, I know we're far from over; but you know how people are always looking for something good).
The length annoyed me, I didn't want it to end.  It was clever and wrapped up in a surprising, sweet, and different way.  I'd love to see more of these Ghost spinoffs, it's almost a shame that Phoenix Wright soaks up all attention.

I really don't want to rain on the Tales community's parade(see signature, I know how being neglected by a company's US branch feels), but the story sequences in the demo seemed really bad.

Does it have a good story, or like all Tales games I've played, is it all about the gameplay and visuals?

I loved Symphonia's designs and gameplay(Kosuke Fujishima is great), but the story was pretty bad.

I liked Symphonia's sort of FFX story.  The last parts just creeped me out with this army of gothic lolita anime angels.  THought that was odd... oh and Collete's evil eye (loved that pic)

No one seems impressed, not even the Tales Forum Community, with Tales storylines.
SO it depends.  Nobody liked the Vesperia demo either, but both were pretty out of context to actual game story and it was in that "starting phase" of things.

i refuse to pay that much for a handheld.

All right. Then wait for the price to go down. Problem solved.

The amount of preorders shows that people are willing to pay that much for handhelds on the day of launch.

I was going to say the same thing.... but I have an iPhone.
Fuck me.

But yeah, oddly enough, my super expensive phone was worth it, but I can't do that much for an "entertainment" thing of that size.

Gamer guys are everywhere, but it's hard to separate the ones who play a wide range of stuff, or just hit the common hitting FPS' all the time.

Yeah, those guys can be hard to find. Even a lot of my gamer RL friends just stick to the common stuff. It wasn't until my senior year of high school that I met a troupe of nerds with ecclectic tastes, but alas, it was a bit too late to build a lasting friendship, I'm afraid.

I gave up.  That's why I just chat with my bro, best bud, force my boyfriend to let me geek a bit, or stick to this place (or GameFaqs because my brain died).

"Alleged-ex-guy-I-liked"?

At least I made it further than Thoren.

Yes.  Yes you did.  Yes you did for certain.
Sorry Thoren, just you say weird shit to me from time to time.... and Leyvi is a doctor. Justified.
