It's not a reflection on the game but as a demo itself, it's terrible.

It throws you in with no explanation of the battle system. I kept switching back and forth between my character and my summon thingie and I wasn't sure which one I was meant to use.

A good demo should teach you the basics of the game and then give you a boss, not throw you to the lions.
It also sucked that the instructional menu item you get after beating that semi boss takes almost 15 minutes to read through, coupled with the 5-6 minutes of boss fight if you're unfamiliar with the game ( everyone probably was), leaving you with 4-5 minutes to actually go through the demo. Most people don't like to replay demos, so if you're not into it yet, 5 minutes of actual play in the demo sours the experience quickly.

Well, if the exploration and story, as well as character development, work out as well as the demo showed it should, the battle system will be only a small kick in the pants. It's not terribly implemented, just seems very elaborate for what basically equates to FFXII battle gameplay with random running and nabbing power ups. Game does reward you for actually defending, though, which is a rarity.

The game is gorgeous, of course, but I'm not really sold on the battle system.  It seems pretty simplistic...and yet at the same time, confusingly presented.
Yeah, way too much going on for what seems to be ffxii's basic fighting system, minus the gambits. Still, once I started running around it felt nicer. Reminded me of when I started DQVIII way back when. I look forward to the launch, just because I want a nice, linear, console jrpg. Swords, magic, olden times....enough sci fi for the current time being.

I agree with pretty much everything you said. I will forever desire Kevin Conroy as the voice of Batman....it just works, though the other guy who voices him in the red hood film and young justice does a decent job too. 2 definitely gets waaaaayyyyy to much kudos, especially considering how downplayed two face was. Yes, ledger was a terrific joker, but you can't help but think that if he hadn't died at the launch of the movie, his role would have been significantly less praised. But to be fair to the late Heath Ledger, I've never disliked anything he was in. He always gave a solid performance.

9 days til twilight's nerdy love sick fanbase gets dusted by....nerdy swords and sorcery fans.

I didn't want to create a new topic, especially since many people talk about this in other topics, but a necrobump is still a necrobump, so I apologize if anyone hates me forever. Anyways....

Game has a demo up on PSN, downloading it as we speak. I assume someone has it already though, and am curious as to how it feels. Otherwise, will place 2 cents up later today.

The bane audio thing drove me nuts in theaters. He was always louder and his sense of presence never felt correct, like he was narrating instead of talking to other characters in the movie. Can't win em all I guess.

I desire that plasma lamp. How much is the collector's edition gonna cost?

Klyde, if I rock your tattoo, will it help me to defeat air man? (I know, should have used that as the original joke).
2004  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 3 (expect spoilers for the entire series) on: December 04, 2012, 03:10:33 AM
Please tell me someone besides me played Omega. I know it's $15 but I can't be the only one.
No ma'am. Sorry, but the dlc for ME3 can go to hell. I'm still infuriated about how they can release story content THAT WON'T CHANGE THE FUCKING STORY!!! Seriously, it's beyond me. Multiplayer dlc, I'm down. Extra events post story, sounds good. But anything that happens during the several days of time where shepard does his (or her) thing is a waste. Sorry if it makes me a hater... I already gave them like 30 bucks in ms points for spectre packs.

If I only had the leaf shield......

Me after the shooting range. Sadly couldn't take photos inside the range, house rules. Also, I fired my friend for his picture taking skills....or lack thereof.

So I went to the shooting range yesterday, filled with fear that the shotgun was going to hurt like a bitch when I fired it, especially since we were firing 70mm slugs instead of buckshot. It felt like I got punched by a little kid, barely even twinged after the first round, third round felt more like getting punched by a teenager, lol. Didn't know what type of shotgun I was using, but the rifle was a .22 ruger I heard the instructor say to someone else. If anyone here ever wants to try shooting, try firing a .22, it's very light and easy to handle, barely kicks at all.

Oh also, those shotguns are FUCKING LOUD. We had ear protection, because those shotguns would have definitely induced some hearing damage. Overall though, worth doing just for the experience.

Shrugged 310 lbs at the gym today. For a fat guy, I'm getting very impressed with my development.

Going to a shooting range today, hunting rifles and shotguns. Got a groupon discount for it back in august, and my appointment is for 2, so my buddy is driving and sitting in. Looking forward to it, and will hopefully take a few pictures of it to put up here.
2009  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGz you want HD'd/Remade on: November 30, 2012, 03:18:28 AM
I have a few of these actually....

Pretty much every ff title before....XIV as remakes, some with better story if possible (XII and XIII coughcough)
FFtactics as well...full remake is preferred but hd port is acceptable.
Chrono Trigger and Cross as remakes, god I would give my hands just to watch these being played.
Xenosaga series for hd ports would be cool, especially 1 and 3. 2 kind of just needs to be redone entirely.
Wouldn't mind Wild Arms 2 redone...1 got its remake already, and 3-5 were meh.
Super Mario Rpg. I miss Geno and Mallow.

I have more suggestions, but I am sure most of them will be mentioned sooner or later anyway.

You can't forget the love for your buddies...the entire start of the game was to save your performance troupe friends who got turned to stone. If that's not love, I don't know what is!
