It may be lame to ask, but does anyone have a trial key?  I heard they gave some out to new buyers?  I would like to give it a shot before I buy, since I live on a fixed income currently.  If someone could help me out here, I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks!

Here you go a link to a free trial. I play Sunrest Defiant, but i do not have any low level characters.

I found it new, I played the prologue today and I have to say I am happy I have it and I think i will like it.  I never played another other game from this company so its all new to me, I really like how its making fun of the whole gaming industry - but I dont get all of it yet (maybe lost in translation?)

My thoughts exactly.
There are tons of  obscure references all over the place. Even the item descriptions and abilities contain  references to other games  and the gaming industry. I found it odd how xbox360 is perceived in Japan as compared to here though. I was really surprised at the amount of anime series references they threw in. One thing I really hate about the game is how half-assed the graphic ares. The characters look nice when they go into visual novel mode, but in game it looks like a mid-life cycle ps2  game, and most of the enemies and backgrounds are bland and recycled. I like the game, but they really could have put a lot more effort into it.

At first I hated Hyperdimension Neptunia for its complicated systems, but once I learned how it is meant to be played, it became an easy-flowing and enjoyable experience.  Every review I had read lead me to believe this was some hardcore grindfest with drawn out battles, which is completely untrue.  It's light-hearted, easy, and can be played in short bursts.  It's genuinely funny, and a joy to play.

A sequel on a portable system makes pretty good sense.  If Compile Heart's countdown is Neptunia-related, the NPG means it's probably for the NGP, given the devs' tendency to toy with acronyms (CPU = Console Patron Unit; HDD = Hard Drive Divinity).

I'm hoping it is a Neptunia game, but for 3DS.  The PS3 game is a good time.
It sorta is a grindfest if you want the true ending
You have to grind the same few missions that raise actually raise stock for the goddess you want  over and over until  your share is  over 50%  This is required to recruit  the cpu goddesses near the end of the game. You need all of them to get the true ending.

For people who want to buy the game Amazon is selling it for 39.99.

There  will always be androgynous looking male characters in jrpgs. Its what is popular  with the Japanese youth in general. The beefy meatheads we westerners like are considered hard-gay over there. Hell, just look at male J rock or J-pop stars. If you did not know any better some of them could pass for being female.

The problem with handhelds are simply a lot of people do not want to play on them.  I have adapted, but I do not care for them much either. I'd  rather play with a controller on my 50 inch plasma TV,  and  7.1 surround  sound system, which is what home consoles are good for.

Oh and I also wonder if I should buy Hyperdimension Neptunia and Ar Tonelico even though they received a bad review. The collector in me wants them madly, but the player just knows I won't like them and probably never play them either.
Neptunia actually isn't that bad of a game. It's certainly a mediocre game, but it's not bad. The games a "love it or hate it" kind of deal. If it doesn't seem like something you would enjoy, I wouldn't bother with it. $60 is a lot to pay for a mediocre game that you only want for collecting purposes.

Just bought a copy from Gamestop...even if I'll never play it I just want to have it on my shelf. And it actually doesn't look half bad judging by the reviews.

I rented it from Gamefly. Its is mediocre, but its still a fun game with tons of gaming references that will make you laugh, smile, or just be indifferent to. It is very grindy though. Instead of grinding mobs, you grind the bosses and hidden bosses because normal random encounter mobs give horrible experience.

That was some low print even for Atlus.  I am glad they are doing another print.

I think the important point is that while console gaming will be cheaper unless you are literally starting from scratch (and possibly not even then!) a good gaming PC is not astronomically expensive. You can build some very respectable computers for sub-$1000; just look at some of the examples on ibuypower.com.
you can turn that respectable computer into an absolute beast if you know how to overclock properly.

Hell th OS alone would chug through that memory like a fat man with chocolate milk

No kidding. I have windows 7 64bit and 8 gigs of ram. My computer averages using over 3 gigs of it.

You're assuming a computer can work without a motherboard.

... And it's best to wait and see what happens when the Witcher 2 comes out before figuring out what it can run at what settings.
well,  he left out alot of things like the case, psu, heatsink, disk drives etc. I was just pointing out that system he said was AAA+ was really dated. You can play a lot of games with it but you are not going to come close to playing on high settings with 1920x 1080 or higher res and having a solid 50-60 fps.

^ that setup would have a hard time running Witcher 2 at mid, let alone high.It would also die a dogs death chugging along trying to run Rift on medium/high settings.

I wish I still owned all the boxes my nes, snes and n64 games came in. I don't know why i threw them away back in the 90's :(

The only box I still own is the Chrono Trigger box and it even still has all the inserts which is cool to me.

In the same boat  desroyed all my old boxes  as well. Oh and I bow before youe massive collection nearly double mine and I though I had alot, lol.
