ah yes, Sega Master System, where the brown-haired Aron faced off against "Dark Dekt."

Also just a friendly reminder, Ys has no apostrophe.

This.

As an Ys fan, I'll also assure you it's pronounced "Eece" (fleece minus the fl), not "Wise"

Also, get over your PC aversion because Ys Origin is great. :)

I liked FFX-2.

No, really! I love camp. It was so full of ham and cheese that it went way beyond being annoying and was just damn funny. Besides, I'm just easy to please with a job system and mission based structure.

This.

I don't think I feel shame for liking unpopular RPGs. And X-2 is right up at the top of such a list. Camp was fine with me. The job system rocked, the battle system rocked, everything about it was super-fun.

I cannot wait to pick up X/X-2 HD and go nuts getting 100% achievements on both. Getting the "International" content is super exciting for me as well. :)

One of Nintendo's worst decisions (IMO) in the last decade was to declare that they'd be limiting the number of soundtracks they'd release. Lots of their games aren't getting OST releases. Twilight Princess was a notorious one. Another one that ABSOLUTELY deserves its own attention, but didn't get it: Kirby's Epic Yarn.

This soundtrack is all kinds of amazing.

Here's a pick: Deep-Dive Deep.

Now what would be really impressive is that at the end of the song you pull out a paper and it's an image of a tiger's eye. That would take a miracle.

I'm still playing this game instead of playing FFXIV because I'm dumb/weird.

AF armor upgraded to ilvl119. For WHM and SMN.

working on doing the same with relic armor.

Up to date on Adoulin story, which is WAY more involved and interesting than WotG. And they're rolling it out faster.

eschatology contains JAP dub option. YES!

Oh my gosh.

Only now did I realize that Japanese Escha and Logy, "Escha to Logy" = eschatology (study of the end of time).

That's baller.

The price is you have to tell me which of the three women in the movie you find most attractive

I suppose I should answer you, many months later.

Hmmm ...

Well, I cleared the game on Neutral today. And then I went into that "A-DDS Mode" thing, which is basically a bonus features menu. The "visionary items" unlock special dialogue sequences not found in the game. Some of them were really helpful to understanding the overall story arc, and others were just nice to have (I had two just for Alice and her uncles). I'm sure I'm missing a few.

I also did the Beelzebub side quest fight, which was painfully and surprisingly easy. I was hoping that would actually be a challenge, but I found

Code:
Michael

to be much harder. Mostly because the latter had 10k HP. Total endurance match.

This was a great experience for me. I might pull from my save file before things lock in and go for a law ending just for the fun of it. But even if I don't, I'm just really pleased with the game and I'm glad it exists in English officially. :)

Finally, a new...piece of story was added, but sadly, it honestly doesn't contribute much. Even so though, the ios port of 999 still spins a wonderful tale and is good for perhaps a revisiting of the story. I wouldn't use this port as the first time experiencing 999, however. Upon completing an ending, the game will flat out tell you which doors to go through for completion. Also, the flowchart model of story jumping sort of added complications to certain required story flags, and if you don't know to rewatch certain scenes, you can actually MISS entire scenes if you jump ahead. Keep that in mind if you plan to make the ios port your first run through.

Before I plunk down money on this (I've literally bought 4 copies of the DS version to be a 999 missionary) ... can you put in spoiler-code what the "new piece of story" is? Fingers crossed that it's Lotus, Lotus' kids, and/or Alice-related. :)
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Atelier Series on: March 26, 2014, 08:29:15 PM
tl;dr
It's my least favorite game in the series outside of Judie.
For the record, Violet and Ayesha are my favorite games in the series, and Annie is my favorite heroine.

Are you a proficient speaker of Japanese? I'd love to play Judie and Violet.

Good to know Ayesha is your favorite. I'm just getting to it now (I loved the OST, now for the game!!) ... up til now I think my fav remains the first Iris, the game that exposed me to the franchise.

Should you like to focus on strategy/tactical RPGs, the earliest one I know of to really take off (in Japan) was Fire Emblem. In the US, it was Shining Force.

Tactics Ogre / Final Fantasy Tactics would then deserve their own special recognition for redifining the genre with jobs/classes, and for making isometric viewpoints the hot new thing.

Among action RPGs I'd point to the Ys series and the Seiken Densetsu series.
45  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shin Megami Tensei iOS funtimes on: March 23, 2014, 07:34:34 PM
I think I'm pretty far in now ... most recently I...

Code:
Went to Chaos HQ and refused to help them destroy the Basilica, I broke out of jail with Bryan's help and killed Yama.

This temporarily puts me squarely in "Law" path, though intend to lock into Neutral before it's all over. <3

I've been having a heck of a time with money. Almost every encounter I do right now, I go into conversation and ask for money, and they're giving me ~2500 maca each time. But the new guns I want are 50k apiece. Dag! That's a lot of conversational haggling.

That bit of grinding aside, I am loving the crap out of this game. :)
