I officially love this game. Found some cool HD artwork and I'm gonna use it to create a nice new theme for my PS3.

Share when you're done!   

Do want!!!1

I think everyone will pretty much echo these recommendations: Valkyria Chronicles, Heavy Rain, and Little Big Planet

I have 1 of the 3 (LBP- it was cheep cheep cheep), I can borrow another 1 of the 3 (HR), and I need a pretty damn good recommendation of VC (is it limited to *strictly* battles?  I had enough of that after maxing FF13 :( ... )

RPG or not (preferably not sport; I play those at my buds house for free).

Can I just add, I'm a happy little girl right now. =)

I was never fond of Yuna.  SHe had the soft, sweet voice... but she also sounded like she was new to the language.

Square Enix is stupid as fuck with accents. First Fran and now Vanille.

I barely recall; what was her accent anyhow>?

lol

"special attack: hellblood's hammer"


"special attack:monotone voice"

I love imagining games in real life.  I think I'd be the next internet phenomenon if I shouted "SPECIAL ATTACK!!!" before a jump kick.

Dice, if we dated over an MMO maybe the game would be more fun. PM Me if you want to give it a shot. Our anniversary can be the release date of Final Fantasy XIV (otherwise known as Mithra MMO 2)

Mmmm oh Thoren you dirty devil.  How you taunt me.

My god... I can't believe I just fell to the charm of someone flagging a video game in front of me.  I'm a dork.

Does a director sit these actors down and say "Do the squeakiest, nails-on-a-chalkboard voice you can manage. That is how I want this character to be portrayed."

It's probably this actually. The actress did a similar type of role in Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex for the Tachikomas, yet I wasn't bugged by them that much for some reason.

That's why I say it was a questionably retarded, clearly conscious decision.
8604  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FINAL FANTASY XIII on: June 30, 2010, 07:42:29 PM
What IS that thing? Did she suffer throat damage as a child? Who talks like that?

Does a director sit these actors down and say "Do the squeakiest, nails-on-a-chalkboard voice you can manage. That is how I want this character to be portrayed."

Yeah.  Amazing how the rest of the cast is quite on par... but then you hear Farleen, and wonder that it likely *must* have been a conscious decision.

Vanille isn't bad.  It's just her random squeaking throughout battles that annoys me.  I found her a good character though.... at least until I realised all the characters could pretty much do the same thing.

Thoughts?

I for one agree. And I quote, "Games should be about 'games', and not the controller".
I don't like motion control, and no one I've talked to seems to be to hooked on it.  The games don't seem to intuitive and, well, "cool", and I just find there's more option with a controller.  I hate the release of all those family-friendly multiplayers where you push balls or excercise and all that jazz.
8606  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wait so how connected is the Fabulous Nova Crystalis on: June 30, 2010, 07:02:42 PM
Well I don't consider FF11 or FF14 to count as a main game, so technically FF13 is really FF12.

Actually I don't consider the MMOs to exist, period.

I'm mostly in the same boat except for my secret harboring and love for them.  But then I cast it off as 'stupid' and don't think of MMO's ever again! ...but every so often, I *do* think about them again, and long to play. =(

Damn you, monthly fees!!  The only thing to actually stop me!  And spec requirements!!!!  Damn you!  Damn you all!!!!!

Haha do I regret or take gratification that I started this whole "BABY BABY BABY" topic?
8608  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: No Sakura Wars, Neptune+classic dungeon+zettai hero=localization on: June 30, 2010, 07:00:28 PM
As long as disgaea 4 is localized in 3 months like 3 I will be happy.

Oh and Ar tonelico III, classic dungeon, zettai

AT3 got average reviews as well; and the streamer I watched...meh.  I liked the battle system for AT2 much more.  3 lets you wander around a field; but it isn't much more complex.  You defend revytails ONLY when they're about to be hit in an active time setting (kinda sucks running to them).  The spells are incredibly lack-luster; usually consist of a (admittedly) pretty cool anime-sequence, but then most spell "effects" are objects being hurled at the enemy, and not so much spells. 
I personally find Ar Tonelico's battle systems somewhat...broken.  No matter what you do as an attacker; you rely a lot on the girls to sing their superpowers and kaboom the fuck out of the battle field to finish the day.  It's hard to rival them, and sometimes, their spellcasting can be a pain in the ass (especially when it comes to bosses with insane HP where it MUST be killed with song magic).  You're attackers are more support.

The graphics aren't half bad though, speaking smaller Japanese companies have had a tough time with this, it seems.  They also match the art style nicely.
Music is largely forgettable (not counting the fancy singing-songs).
The art is, as always, gorgeous.

Just be prepared for some stupid dialogue; or poorly proofread when NISA brings it over.:P
8609  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: No Sakura Wars, Neptune+classic dungeon+zettai hero=localization on: June 30, 2010, 09:09:25 AM
I barely buy anything from NISA due to their, on average, underwhelming titles.
Interesting apology, sad sales, Neptune looks cool, but also like one of those crappy-chipper-J-cuties bouncing around flaunting their ass-ets and super powers; and you can probably deal 999,999 damage at one point.  I do hope I'm wrong - but NISA hasn't really wow-ed me in qutite some time
8610  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wait so how connected is the Fabulous Nova Crystalis on: June 30, 2010, 09:06:30 AM
Sounds like an excuse to have the same marketing legend and slap the number "13" on every thing so far.

Gotta love marketing.  Sounds like it works too, get the FF-Fanboys to wet themselves at a "wowie three new FF titles!!!! *wet*" tactic.

...On a side note...If it *isn't* connected; wouldn't FFXIV technically be FFXVI?
