Allow me to simplify why Caius is hands down awesome...besides being just so godly broken.

Code:
Caius has spent what could be summed up as eternity watching Yeul die. Repeatedly, frequently, and for the silliest of reasons. At first, he knew why she had to pass on, but after the umpteenth time watching her pass again, he finally snapped. What was the point of it all, the continued cycle of a life so short that it barely holds any meaning, outside of the one watching it happen. Knowing he could never escape this fate, having to watch her die again and again, he tried to beat his shitty hand. If he couldn't save her directly, he could take fate out of the equation. No goddess, no time, no order, no worries.


Seriously, I can't blame him. I bet snow would kill a goddess to bring serah back....oh wait he did.

Caius is hands down the most tragic villian in ff, and arguably the most powerful. It's a shame he turned out the way he did, would have probably made a cool hero.

Welcome to THE EXACT SAME THING everyone else said a month ago. Talk about being late to the party.
2748  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon's Crown (Vanillaware RPG, now 2013 all regions) announced for PS3/Vita on: April 23, 2012, 11:55:34 PM
Well, it's only for PS3/Vita, so I imagine that won't be as big a problem. I'm hoping it'll be like Wipeout in that Vita and PS3 owners can play with each other, but we'll see.
Oh whoops, thought there was a 360 release tossed in as well. Fuck it, ps3 for the win.

It's also easy to think it's good if you go in with really, REALLY low expectations. I'd take this over SO4 any day, at least FFXIII-2 seems to know HOW to have fun with itself.
Yeah, I think that may be what bittered you to 13-2, Ashton. You played Mass Effect 3, which was a good story SHUT UP YES IT WAS A GOOD STORY, and then followed it with 13-2 which was infinitely less impressive. I went into 13-2 having just finished 13. I had absolutely nowhere to go but up from there.

I hope this game won't be another one of those "buy it on one system, everyone else plays on the other" games. I did the expensive thing and bought both mgs collections, only to see no one on 360. Same with RE5, bought PS3 first, no one I knew played there, then when I nabbee the failbox version everyone stopped playing it there. I really look forward to this game, and the more people I can run with the better.

Nothing good came from Ar Tonelico Qoga. It was just a bad game. I would have beaten it just for shits and giggles if it weren't for it being a rental. Sad, really, I was pretty close to the middle of the game. Same for Agarest Zero, got beaten by rental timeout.

I call horseshit, my booze is watered down, and Yoda's counting cards.

Also, fuck I have a terrible case of heartburn.

Naked Gun marathon yesterday. All three movies in a row, gotta love hbo.

2 was definitely the best, followed by 1 closely, and 3 trailing a bit further behind. Leslie Nielsen was awesome.

I think I may have found my next most disliked rpg since persona 3.
2755  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: April 22, 2012, 10:42:45 PM
P3's not for everyone. I just wanted to call someone a son of a bitch today. :P
Believe me, as an rpg fan (HAHA), I get ripped on constantly for disliking persona 3. I consider myself an rpglover, I will play near any rpg you sit in front of me. However, Persona has been a series that since I tried, I have no love...no appreciation for. I hate it more than I hate FFXII, and I didn't think I could hate anything more than that.
2756  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: April 22, 2012, 10:26:21 PM
Do you even know the full story for P3, or just a bit of cursory information before going "nope, terrible terrible terrible!"

... Still, I enjoyed the story more than I expected, but I didn't really try to take it too seriously at all, then you have the ending that's... well, best to see for yourself.
I got through about a third of P3 before I rage quit. To this day, it's the only rpg I refused to finish. Maybe it's my bias with how weaboo you had to be to enjoy it, but all I saw was some dumbass kid take a gun and shoot himself in the head, and instead of dying he unleashes a super demon to beat up more demons. I couldn't stand many things in the game, but that tainted my taste forever. I can't even play the other persona titles because of it now. At the end of the day, I just hated persona 3. I can forgive the silliness of 13-2, and the terrible plot device that made mgs4's nanomachines seem like a logical conclusion, but fuck P3.

I will, however, throw a rock at 13-2 now. I am thoroughly disappointed with the extra dlc. I did everything in the game and scored platinum, but these dlc fights require way to much super tweaking of your monsters. You can't readjust your other characters for finesse purposes, but your monsters you can do all day long. Nevermind the million or so crystarium points I have that do nothing, I'm just tired of fighting the same enemies now for leveling items, and recatching the last monster I used for combining. It's repetitive now, and only the story dlc will drive me further.

Story isn't that bad. Still like it better than persona 3, but I truly hate persona 3. Besides, the gameplay and music still give the game a good feel. The characters are likeable, the fights were challenging at times....sort of, and overall the game was well made. Yes, the story was pretty terrible, at least the ending was cool. Plus, Caius is awesome.

Yeah, I kinda realize it's pretty doable, but the amount of work needed would defeat any reason to do so. Basically, composite video card for the pc, or a digital scaler which is expensive.
2759  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Reasons why Resident Evil fans are going to avoid RE6 now on: April 21, 2012, 10:34:15 PM
unalterable? put some tape over the square on the back and record a few eps of king of queens on it
You know, this brings up a very good question. Is it possible to record video from a pc via VHS? I've seen ways to upload music from cassettes to a pc via a digital converter, but idk about downgrading a digital video source to an analog vhs.

Saw the new Young Justice this morning. For a superhero cartoon, shit is getting pretty deep. Vandal Savage taking over the watchtower and then walking away without a fight? This guy has balls.

Also watched the new thundercats this morning, and it's like I said. All back story this season, they just did the thunderkittens, and sad story was sad, though not as compelling as Tygra's. When I think of the original and how everything was always about Lion-o, I get so impressed at how this new series is playing out. So familiar, but so much better.
