I'm amazed that question is being asked really, it's a wireless function and therefore MUST use Wi-Fi. It's almost like asking if I really need to plug in the power cord before I use my electrical appliance or something.

I didn't know it was a Wi-Fi function. I thought it was something like download play where it would just recognize that another DS was near you and pick up on it. I never had to connect to wi-fi in order to play Mario Kart with one of my friends.
Yeah, the way Nintendo's been explaining it, it didn't sound like a wifi related function. My common sense said it was, but it's not exactly like Nintendo went and said "You need to have your wifi connection on for it to work".

Bitch please.  You took a break like I did.
YOU PLAYED FOR LIKE 2 WEEKS AND SAID "RAWR SHIT FROZE, NEXT" THEN NEVER CAME BACK.

Just know...dead me on Old Republic....you'll be calling me a fatass via a mini keyboard device attached to your life support system.

The game doesn't have a lot of staying power at the moment, but you'll definitely get your $59.99 out of it.  You'll log more hours on this game than you do most others.

Edit: when I say staying power, I mean in terms of an MMORPG.
This is the second game he got me to play and jumped ship on. Boy, if he does it when the Old Republic comes out (which I'm getting a WHOLE NEW PC for)...well lets just say I'll be on some military shit list.

No, all they need are a popular name (Final Fantasy), a popular motiff (Modernized war, day-to-day thug life, sports), or a popular singer/band backing it (Guitar Hero Green Day). People are lame when it comes to purchasing games.

I love my store connections, got this yesterday night and ran through it til this morning (still groggy btw). Honestly, the game itself is fun, plays well, looks great. No complaints regarding the action, it's done nicely, and the reaper fight mentioned earlier...yeah it's that fucking annoying. If they were to remake PE 1 or 2 using this style of fighting (minus the overdive system obviously), it'd be amazing.

Now the downside...

Story's weak. Like really really weak. The voice acting doesn't fit the characters, it never feels like Aya (for good reason, but even so), and the supporting characters were weird, like cheap throw away characters with no purpose, and what made that even worse was the lame way they tried to make them feel more attached to Aya. The gratuitous (and I actually just mean plain perverted) shower scene was hot sure, but had no purpose in the game. The battle damage idea was cool....but it was just a way to get Aya more naked. As most PE fans agree, this was just a fanservice title, it's depressing to know that SE feels like this regarding one of their better made games.

I'm still happy I paid an extra 10 bucks to get it early and risk a fine for my friend. It's a fun game, and looks amazing. Just...sucks that SE doesn't take the franchise seriously enough (at least on the US side). Maybe with some luck enough copies will sell to continue the series though, I truly enjoy Parasite Eve.

I want this game so bad, it gives me goosebumps. The last time I had that feeling, Final Fantasy VII just came out.
2827  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: George Hotz (geohot) VS Sony. on: March 24, 2011, 10:55:57 PM
you up your games to $60 and you didnt see this coming? for shame sony.

Wait, you're blaming Sony for the price headed to $60?  Are you daft?  I don't really blame Microsoft or Sony for a price increase with the cost of development, but you simply can't ignore the fact that Microsoft led with the increase a full year before the PS3 saw release.

That being said, D. tnegA brings up a perfectly valid point: Cartridge games were expensive.  Virtua Racing for the Genesis was $90.  In 1994.
If anything, slap ms for that trick, at least sony uses a more expensive format for publishing said games.

Ahh, the good ole days of begging my parents to buy that one new game...then I'd beat it in 8 days and my parents would scream at me for not playing it anymore. Good ole memories.

Oh cmon, nintendo was charging how much for SNES carts back in its prime? I found my original copy of Megaman X at funcoland for 70 bucks when I was 8 and it first came out. I'd be more inclined to bash sony for allowing developers to put shitty ports like Black Ops and Portal onto the PS3 and expect people to pay full price for them in their crappy state.

@Leyviur....touche.

If he is thrown in jail it will be a huge strike against human rights and opens the door for corporations to lynch consumers as they see fit.
Uh....yeah he's not gonna get jailtime, it was just a shot at using jailbreak for hilarity reasons. If he gets put in jail for this I'm probably leaving America for someplace less...stupid.
2831  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Radiant Historia on: March 24, 2011, 09:04:57 PM
I'm in love with this game. It has REALLY grown on me. The only little thing that would be nice is if there was a way to mod it so that Stocke didn't have to stay in the party at all times. He's nice and balanced, but he's not the most... interesting character in battle. That's also my main complaint with FF7 (I'm making this thread follow the board's rules).

Still, this game is amazing.

There was a point in the game where you could make any 3 person party in FFVII, if I'm not mistaken.
Yeah I remember that part, when cloud went all emo and gave up on life....


c wut eye did thar?

Oh, I'm not saying that he used the donation to pay for his vacation, nobody can prove if he did or didn't and frankly, I don't give a fuck. I was just pointing out the hilarious reactions all over the net when the news broke.
Removing the other OS feature was a lousy move, no doubt about it. The irony is the fact that it was caused by security concerns. They shouldn't have included it in the first place.
I can understand both sides. I hope they don't end up ruining the kid's live, like I said, they'll probably make an example out of him to discourage others from doing the same.
Actually, IGN claimed something about the secondary OS removal now being blamed on cost cutting. Not 100% sure, it was just a glance I caught of it really, but it may be worth looking into. Regardless as to why, it was still a dick move, I think that much everyone can agree on.

I saw that but I don't buy it.
Honestly....me neither.

@Anuubis
Nah, he was already pretty popular from the iphone break. Way more notorious than say...Dark Alex (psp guy).

At least if he gets jailtime, he can just "jailbreak" his way out, amirite?
2833  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dissidia 012[duodecim] Final Fantasy on: March 24, 2011, 08:12:14 PM
I hated the first dissidia, felt too much like a shitty dragonball tenkaichi, and the designs for the characters were HORRIBLE (WTF BARTZ!!!). If this plays the same, idc how much of tifa's huge boobs they put in it, no thanks.

@Leyviur

I like how you worded that all, it makes a lot of sense. It's true, corporations are kinda taking control of our entertainment, but the only way to change it is to make your own form of it, or accept it and the laws that (in america at least) we the people agreed to. Sure we could do what someone like geohotz did and alter their media for our own gain, but at least for the time being (moreso if sony wins this lawsuit) it's against the law. You could call geohot a vigilante in what he's doing (he's still an asshole in my opinion, but eh). Maybe he's really trying to take a stand, or maybe he's just (like I figure it honestly) a pathetic kid who wanted more notoriety and fame for doing something, and it backfired. I still figure both Sony and Geohot to be fucking jerks in any case, Sony for being a manipulative greed-based corporation, and Geohot for being a smug basement dweller who thinks he can get away with what he's doing, but atm my favor leans towards sony. Geohot bought a ps3, and if he wasn't happy with the removal of the secondary OS function, he honestly shoulda gotten rid of his PS3 and been done with it. Now he's wasting his money, people's money, his time, sony's time, and a lot of energy on this whole lawsuit debacle when he could have went ahead and maybe made his own console based entertainment system, or applied for a job with sony directly and try to change these issues from the inside.

(btw I'm really enjoying the insights everyone's putting into this, no one I know personally cares to talk about this at all cuz they just wanna pirate their damned games all the time, lets keep it going please)
