I just spent eight hours cleaning/moving furniture/reorganising in my room today. EIGHT HOURS. 1pm-9pm. You'd think I'd have to be drunk, but no. Luckily, it looks brilliant.

They should save them themselves a ton of money and not get English voice actors. I seriously doubt that would stop anyone from buying it and would surely save a lot.

Haven't really watched any anime recently, but I did finish Bakemonogatari the other night. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

I should continue with that one someday. I felt it was too weird at first, but who knows, it might get better.

No, it stays weird. Haha. But I like weird. :)

Like Fadedsun, I am yet to play a Ys game. I hear I and II are not nearly as good as the later ones. What do you experts think?

Oh really? I've never heard of it, but I just looked it up and doesn't really seem all that similar.

Been watching Ouran High School Host Club, and yes it's goofy and over the top, but it's hilarious!  And it's got Vic Mignogna, Junpei from P3's VA, need I say more?

I started watching this over Thanksgiving because I was bored and heard it mentioned a couple of times from friends. It was a great guilty pleasure series, but I only watched the first half of the first season or so. K-ON! falls into the same boat for me - cutesy guilty pleasure anime fun.

But at least the characters in Ouran have personality? :P Sorry, I'm a K-ON hater.

That's actually what I said.

"Playing them with a guide would help, but it's not really an ideal experience if you have to sit with the guide the entire time you play."

But let's face it, unless you're a hardcore Tales fan, sitting through 50 hours of text you can't understand (with or without a guide) is really not that much fun. Plus (Vesperia aside because of it's 360 release), most walkthroughs don't translate things for you, they just guide you through, so you're missing a ton of stuff.

Or let me remind you all the 3DS will cost between $350-$400 for us Aussies.

Let's not start hating on it before it's out. We have a single trailer to go on with no gameplay footage. It might turn out to be really good. *Hopes for the best*

Demon's Souls is not a JRPG.

But really, I haven't played it. Isn't it pretty damn westernized though?

It's a JRPG only because it's made by a Japanese gaming company and is an RPG. Otherwise it shares no similarities with the JRPG sub-genre at all. None that spring to mind anyway.

You can even get them for free from Betehsda's website. Assuming you're willing to run them through DOSBox.

Unless there is no mod support, in which case I would probably cry.

They'd be fools not to include it, considering how many more copies of Oblivion they must have sold through it.

The only reason I could see them omitting it would be for legal reasons. There is some crazy and illegal stuff out there in the modding world. Obviously Bethesda aren't liable for that, but I know there was a bit of a "thing" back when the nude mods for Oblivion started coming out. And there was WAY worse stuff than that available.

In Oblivion vanilla you'd explore into some shitty cave full of goblins only to get a chest full of pregenerated loot crap. That just sucks.

And that's what I hated the most. Due to scaling you couldn't fight your way through a massive dungeon and actually get something good. You'd only get gold/gems/weapons/armour scaled to your level. The mods fix that, but they really shouldn't have to. Difficulty should be static. Is it really so hard to do? Dungeons/caves etc. that are close-by to the events of the main story or close to towns should be easier and give lowbie equipment. The further off the beaten track you go the dungeons and enemies should be harder and have better rewards.

In vanilla Oblivion I never felt I got stronger. Sure, the new enemies would start appearing that were more challenging, but there was never anything MORE of a challenge. I like knowing I can't complete a dungeon yet because I'm not strong enough. It's great incentive to come back later when I'm more awesome.

And bandits should only ever be in leather. End of story.

In response to all the info posted by hell_snake:

--No Class selection at start?--
I'm sure we'll all adjust, but what the hell are they thinking?

--Perks?--
Oh please. Let's not turn this into the fantasy version of Fallout.

--LESS Skills?--
A pox upon them! Bring back Unarmored!

--Combat--
Do I sense dual-wielding finally? These seem like positive changes.

--Third person view improved.--
Does that mean I can actually use a bow in third person without looking like an idiot and missing my target by a mile?

--Weapon Smithing--
Yay!

--Level Scaling--
You think they would have learned everyone hated it by now...

--Fast Travel--
Bring back Mark and Recall + Mage's Guild teleportation. None of this fast travel nonsense.

~ ~ ~

But let's face it. If I can mod it, I'll be happy.

When the original 60GB PlayStation 3 came out in Australia it cost $1000. Yes, that's right. We win. And by that I mean we lose.
