Well, for what it's worth that is better than Mega Man X on iOS.

Grandia by Sony and then Square Enix

Hm? Can you give me more details about this please.

And as you said, patience and a bit of memorization/trial and error will get through the entire game. No other typical action game skills required, yet people hype it as if it had the most difficult combat since Ninja Gaiden II (not that many, if any RPG gamers have experienced that game.. but you know what I mean).

Pretty much any modern Ninja Gaiden is way more difficult and requires more skill than Dark Souls. Though, I wonder how difficult Dark Souls is in comparison to some NES titles that are usually said being harder than any game that has come out in the last 10 or 8 years like some retro gamers mention.

Or heck, is Mega Man 9 and 10 harder than Dark Souls? Some people say those Mega Man games are brutal.

Just a quick question, how does DS games look on the 3DS?

How Richard Honeywood helped the house of Final Fantasy go from incoherent to incomparable.

Bit from the article:

"The rise of Square localization begins at the dawn of the PlayStation era. In the mid-1990s, video games were still ruled by the East. Nintendo had just finished asserting its dominance with the Super Nintendo, and Sega and Sony were preparing to duke it out in three dimensions with the Saturn and the PlayStation, both launched in the twilight days of 1994. The powerful Western developers of the period were mostly confined to the very segregated PC market. That would eventually change, with companies like Epic Games and BioWare finding enormous success on home consoles and Microsoft entering the scene with the Xbox in 2001. But in 1996, it was more or less business as usual, and Square was hard at work on the game that would change everything."

Mai Yamane & Hideyuki Takahashi - Pushing the Sky

Got a little nostalgic and started to hear the soundtrack of the movie of Cowboy Bebop.

Well yeah I change my opinions about about certain games like three times a day and end up saying random stuff sometimes but whatever. :)

One thing though, for me at least Demon's Souls was an experience and it was the same thing for probably other people aswell since it was the first time they/we saw a game in that style, so... dunno. To each his own I guess?

After all, not everyone enjoys video games the same way (if that makes any sense).

I've been having stuck in my head "Historia Crux" for weeks now. I can imagine people by now having a bunch of tracks from the soundtrack in their music players.

...and later they don't tell anyone that they enjoy video game music. :P The horror.

Pretty.

Visually this looks a lot like Vagrant Story. Hope someone bring it over here, seems interesting so far.

Even if I never played the first one for the DS it was such a shame that Another Code: R for Wii got stuck between Japan and Europe. Many nice titles for the DS and Wii end up like that and really don't want to see that happening again with the 3DS and WiiU.

Or at least not as often.

I just wonder if anyone will ever solve the pendant mystery(assuming there is one).

I would not be surprised if the pendant is just for trade. There are some areas that are pretty weird, like they seem to have some sort of purpose but there's absolutely nothing that can give you a clue or something.

People have tried a ton of stuff with Solaire since the description in rings, items, miracles and his weapon and armor say that he is more important that what he actually appears to be since he was some kind of Deity or Demigod many many years ago and that's maybe one of the reasons why he is searching for "his sun".

In any case I really hope someone in a interview ask about that because people has been going crazy with the pendant for a long time now.

Actually Code Veronica cost me like 40 bucks since in those days I was stupid enough to force my poor mother and one of my sisters to buy me a PS2 and a GameCube for really stupid reasons, and I got both consoles when they were pretty much obsolete. To this day I feel bad for doing that instead of waiting like a good kid for a PS3 and be happy with that.

Though, I enjoyed games like Persona 3 FES, Dragon Quest VIII and FFX-2 on PS2 and Wind Waker with Killer7 on the Cube so not everything was bad. Still, I bought around 20 games for boht systems that just today I'm gonna sell.

I don't even care that much how money the guy gives me, I just wanna get rid of this shit because it brings me bad memories...

One of the games I wish I have never bought and play were RE: Code Veronica X. What a waste of time that was... I wish that game never existed, but it does and it sucks but what can I do about it? Not much really since I finished the whole thing because I pay for it. At least that game show me that I never really liked survival horror games and Resident Evil as I thought.

Anyway, did a little bit of the demo of Syndicate last night and is not bad.

Demon's Souls is really more an experience than a regular video game and actually the story that it has is pretty dark. But like D-Rider said, is not for you.

Though I totally understand your situation in investing time in something that you put your own money and hoped to enjoy.
