It's going to be interesting to see if these games do get a PSN release, due to PSP2 not having a umd drive but yet sony claims there'll be some level of PSP support on the PSP2.

I have a feeling that such a huge company has no idea what hands are scratching what.

Its pretty hard to believe that lot of things don't have a PSN release. Isn't that the whole point of the GO?  I really feel sorry for the people who bought that machine.

every time i try to play tales of vesperia with an hour i start to feel sleepy. so i ask this. is it really that boring or is something other than the gameplay causing it to bore me to sleep? maybe a certain pattern of colors? or maybe just the fact that non of the characters really click with me?

Didn't you make a thread like this before? o_O

Fuck my useless memory.  Wish I remembered, you know, useful things as good as I can remember random things.
Lol, amazing how time can change someone's opinion of a character.The past me  gave a somewhat favorable opinion of Estelle. I guess the bad Ai memories won out in the end :P

Estelle reminded me too much of Shirley from Legendia and that is not a good thing. I also did not like Karol at all. One of the most annoying child characters ever.

If you don't like the characters, besides the battle system. I can very easily see some people getting bored  with it. The soundtrack does not help matters either, its not bad just bland. I had blast with it but I also liked Yuri, Rita, Raven,Judith and their interaction with each other.

Those are numbers are actually pretty low....3rd birthday outsold it be over 30k copies in its first week.

A Square-Enix franchise sequel sold more than a new IP? Wow!

Last Story was not just any new IP.  Nintendo certainly has high hopes for it, so I am pretty sure they marketed the hell out of it.

I Hope it is released here. It  seems really interesting.

Anything that can have Epeen jerking quickly becomes a cesspool of jerks.

I've never met a woman with gaming knowledge beyond tetris and farmville outside of the internet.

If I meet a woman in real life that can debate video game voice actors and doesn't look like a troll... I am totally dating that.

April: The 3rd Birthday, Trails in the Sky, Dragon Quest

Deus Ex: Human Revolution says hi.

argh!!!!!!!!! looks like DragonQuest is getting bumped to May, lol.

Hasn't actually got a date yet though.
If it is April then DragonQuest is booted ... too many rpgs...... just when I had  all the costs calculated, not that it changes much.  It would get a bit iffy if something else surprised me in Feb/Mar  though.
550  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Radiant Historia on: February 03, 2011, 01:49:39 PM
 I have already drawn up  my buying plan.
February:  Tactic Ogre, Radiant Historia, Ys Chronicles
March:  Dragon Age 2, Ar Tonelico 3
April: The 3rd Birthday, Trails in the Sky, Dragon Quest    

Watch there be something I have forgotten about that messes this list up.

It was not until I first went to college that I learned how expensive food was. Before college I never understood why people bought the cheaper, less tasty food brands when the better stuff was only a few cent more expensive, Holy crap though, does the overall cost rise rapidly.
yes, it does and fast. So does going out with your friends downtown. You quickly learn how to manage your finances, or you are in for some rough times. I remember surviving off roman noodles and other cheap stuff  near the end of the month because my funds ran low. The call home and beg your parents because you used up all your funds card only works so many times. Also ,omg are books are expensive. I always felt like crying at the beginning of the semester when I had to buy books, then I  got smart and started getting them off ebay, which weakened the blow some.

Remember guys, 10 copies each so we can get Xillia! :P
lol, forget that.  I willl get my 1 copy and call it a day. If it  still doesn't sell enough in the end,  then the tales fans that have a PS3 who did not buy it have no right to complain, and need a swift kick in the ass.

I kind of hated college. Is this normal?
Going to class and dealing with most of the population. Yeah, I don't miss that part of college at all.

555  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Namco Bandai is teasing something (Tales of Graces F/Vesperia localization?) on: February 02, 2011, 08:04:56 PM
One thing that drives me nuts about Japanese games as of late is their insistence of using an anime-style.  I'm sure environments and people could turn out way better if they went for a more realistic feel that the console is capable of.  Namco Bandai does have the talent (usually at other divisions).  And it is unfortunate then when these realistic-anime graphics did come in Star Ocean 4, it was rejected as being too akin to a "creepy doll".  I still think Tri-Ace usually masters environments (for a smaller J-developer).

I dunno - I think they're both trying to hit some effect.  SO is trying to be real, Tales is pulling that more washed-out anime backdrop look.  Even character wise: SO has textures, Tales is just smoothed out (where hair is probably the only liberty taken).

In terms of this aliasing business.... um, I couldn't care less how edges look.  I find you stop noticing when the game is in motion anyways - one reason I hate looking at screenshots; they never do a game justice.

Cultural differences. They like their  graphics to look  more anime/manga like, while we westerners like realistic graphics. Like someone else said in some past thread.
