1  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A rant OR what bugs me about Nintendo on: July 29, 2015, 10:22:18 PM
If there is one thing Nintendo has taught me in recent years, it's don't buy their consoles on launch.

I think that's part of why the WiiU failed to whatever extent. :P


Which was mostly Nintendo's fault for not actually clearly telling anyone what the WiiU was. I'm a gamer and it even took me a couple months after it was announced to find someone definitively saying it was a new console and not a Wii peripheral.

Not to mention that I regretted buying my Wii on launch because I ended up with only a handful of games for it. Or, as much as I love my 3DS, miss a $100 price drop and multiple awesome limited edition versions/XL/New3DS (the second which I should have at least seen coming) - I feel like Nintendo just kept rubbing it in my face that I bought it on launch.

Ar nosurge seems to be a visual novel that occasionally pretends to also be an RPG.

Okay, so one of the things I'm not liking about Ar nosurge is the battle grades. But this is a problem I have with any game ever. I just don't like being "graded" on my performance when I'm just trying to have some fun. It's extra frustrating in a game like Ar nosurge that does a poor job of explaining the battle system and completely fails at explaining how the grading works and how to improve your grade.

I'm playing the 'Plus' version of this now for review. I can't even figure out how the system grades you. I have received a 'B' for literally every single battle so far. :P

Just wanted to say I enjoy reading your IX journal at work, Dice. Good when I need a break for a few minutes!

Oh, I agree in relation to the PR response. Definitely does not come off well!

Does every game need to have the option of a female character? I don't look at Horizon Zero Dawn and go: "Why can't I be male?" I appreciate that the industry (and protagonists) are male dominated and there should be more options... but this seems a bit over the top.

On my way back from E3 I watched, well started watching, Cinderella on the plane. To be fair, films are never as good on that tiny screen when you're squished between other people and suffering from a lack of sleep... but I was so bored. I watched the first 30-40ish minutes and then turned it off. I was like, "Wait, I already know exactly what's going to happen. Why am I watching this?"

I am planning to go see Inside Out this weekend. Looking forward to it!

I don't know how sales were for XIII-related products (at least decent, I guess?), but it was continually hilarious/sad to watch this:

Public: We don't like XIII.

SE: No problem, we'll give you XIII-2!

Public: We like XIII-2 better, but we still don't like it.

SE: No problem, we'll give you XIII-3!

Public: ...

SE: And also all these spin-offs of varying quality! All filled with stories that make little sense.

Public: ...

SE: Please understand.

"slighty-dated presentation"
I think it looks gorgeous.
I wonder if we'll ever be at a point that it won't matter if a game looks (potentially very) dated, if it looks really pretty.

I was standing next to Derek as he played it at E3, and the graphics were far less pretty in the area we were in than those screenshots shown. There wasn't anything wrong with them, just the environment was a bit bland. Don't get me wrong, it still looks good (reminds me of Celceta on Vita), but it's a fair mention.

Very late response, but thank you for the advice, everyone!
12  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Recommend Me a PS1 RPG on PSN on: May 23, 2015, 11:34:39 PM
Looking to pick up one or two PS1 titles for my Vita via PSN. Here's a few I've been looking at so far:

Grandia
Suikoden 1
Suikoden 2
Breath of Fire 3

I haven't played any of the above (nor many PS1 RPGs). I'd love to hear which ones people would recommend - not just on nostalgia, but if they'd still be fun to play today.

13  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Anyone played IDOLM@STER ONE FOR ALL ? on: May 23, 2015, 05:42:15 PM
I haven't played One For All, but in 2 you can pause during those options and, while the screen goes a bit darker, you can still read the text.

I thought you might have a suggestion, Took. Thanks! :)
15  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Disgaea 3 on Vita Worth it After Playing 4? on: May 20, 2015, 11:33:53 PM
I played D1 and D2 back on the PS2, but only recently got D4 on Vita and loved it. I haven't played D3 at all, would you guys recommend it even though I've played 4? Or will it feel like a step backwards?

Edit: ...Also, completely unrelated, but is Curtain Call worth getting if I already played/enjoyed the first Theatrhythm?
