I read the first volume of the Sword Art Online manga, and it was pretty good!

I have now started watching the anime. MISTAKE. First episode was fine, but the second episode... I felt embarrassed watching it. I don't know which is more accurate to the original novels, but it was nothing even remotely like the manga. In the anime, Asuna is some nobody with a bit of skill, which is very different from the manga, and Kirito is, uh, odd.

But, what bothered me most of all, was it takes the same approach other MMO-animes have done: the MMO aspects make no sense. Obviously I'm approaching this as someone who, like lots of you guys, have played many MMOs. Many of the mechanics described in SAO just make zero sense. It's frustrating.

If any of that changes, feel free to let me know, but otherwise, I think I'll stop watching.

They should Kickstart it. :P

I didn't use any SP at all and didn't even notice it.

This really gets me down. I hate how intensely angry people can get (especially on the internet) over something that really shouldn't be a big deal. Sure, I can understand some disappointment, but it's his game, he can do what he likes. Those responses make me see why he might have wanted to withdraw in the first place.

If someone told me tomorrow that (somehow) I could never play Ocarina of Time ever again (which is my all-time favourite game), I still wouldn't get as worked up as these people are. I just don't get it.

Who are all of these characters and why are half of them like generic townie NPCs?

That's what I was thinking. They picked some worthwhile characters, but others are just "what the? really?" choices. There's a serious lack of Japanese games represented, too.

I had two, and neither of them would transfer >.>

Spent all of yesterday and today moving ~800 Pokemon from SS and W and W2 to X. Phew.

However, I was unable to move my Shaymin or Jirachi. I guess they were hacked (?), though I'm sure I got the Shaymin at an event... oh well. Anyway, does anyone have either of these Pokemon? I have everything else, so I can trade you almost anything in return. I have all legendaries for trade (excluding Celebi, Mew, Deoxys and Genesect, Xerneas - only have 1 of each), plus a Shiny versions of Dialga, Palkia and Giratina I can part with. Oh, I could also use an Yveltal. Already have it registered in my Dex, but would like one to keep.

Nothing wrong with enjoying them all, Serene! :) As for ToS2, you'll probably see it's problems within moments of playing! ...But, maybe you'll enjoy it anyway! ;)
69  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: February 04, 2014, 05:08:47 PM
I'd pay $40 to not have ToS2 forced upon me. (I'm not getting the HD collection :P)

So,I'm playing Phantasia, and an interesting thing I had never noticed/thought about (I'm sure others have): Maxwell, Lord of Spirits is mentioned in a book in Claus' house.

I totally hear where you're coming from Dice, and I think you're absolutely right. Just, for me, I couldn't get past the problems I have with it to enjoy all the things you mentioned.

Since people are weighing in with their opinions on different titles they'd played, I thought I would too.

Phantasia - Fun to play, and a real classic JRPG (for all the right reasons). Playing it through again at the moment, and it's still good.

Eternia - I remember adoring it when I first played it, but I honestly don't remember it that well.

Symphonia - The first one I played and *probably* still my favourite. Genus and Raine were annoying, but I loved the story and the rest of the party was really solid. Watching Colette fall apart as the game progressed was really riveting. Also, I hadn't remembered that Martel and Yggdrasil are really important in Phantasia too!

Abyss - Boring. I honestly don't understand what the fuss was with this one. I never warmed to anyone. I found the gameplay slow and the story unbelievably confusing until about halfway through, and by that point I pretty much didn't give a damn any more. I swear, if anyone tries to talk about Yulia or Fonic Hymns again without explaining what the damn things are (not to mention all the other useless terminology), I will throw my console out the window.

Vesperia - One of my favourites. Good characters and story and just fun to play. Yuri and Flynn were an awesome pair.

Hearts - My favourite 2D Tales with a fantastic battle system. It just sort of fit the DS perfectly and I really enjoyed it, even though Kohak's journey was quite similar to Colette's.

Graces - My favourite of recent years. Battle system blew me away. While I do understand people's complaints about the story, I still enjoyed it. And while the cast weren't particularly impressive, I liked the relationship between Asbel and Hubert. Sophie was kinda cool, and I like Cheria when she was a kid (not so much as an "adult").

Xillia - Incredibly dull. Hated all the characters. I'm struggling to think of a redeeming feature... Oh, Milla was kind of okay, I guess. What irked me the most was Alvin. Not so much in the way the game wanted me to hate him, but the way the other characters dealt with him was so unrealistic. Too many second chances; they should have stabbed him and been done with it. We had a discussion a few pages early about how Gaius is cool, but did anyone else wish Ivar would have been playable? Dude was hilarious and had more personality and motivation than the main characters put together.

I am never going to be able to unsee that.

I enjoyed just watching this. :)

I'm not sure if your model was based on something, but it feels like it should be a Persona enemy to me.

I just finished watching AnoHana. ...I am a bit emotional right now. I watched 6 episodes last night and the other 5 tonight. I cried... a lot. :P I then made sure to purchase the series on DVD because it is worth every cent. I enjoyed it so much. The characters were fantastic and the pacing and everything was just right. There's a couple of really minor things I would have liked to have seen fleshed out more, but overall, brilliant.
