I only just started getting into the series, but I imagine Dynasty Warriors would be a pretty fun game to play when you're not feeling good.

Meh, I'll wait for the pre release hype train to slow down before I get too excited about this. Looking at Titanfall and the crazy amount of hype that got, followed by the astonishing vanishing act not long after release. Heck, I had to type "game about mechs" into wikipedia just to remember what it was called.
Titanfall is still doing very well....idk where you're hanging out to be comoletely oblivious to it aside from sony-preferred areas.

I work at Gamestop, and all of our regular customers who bought Titanfall have since traded it in.

I'm still somewhere in the middle of Chapter 5. I just couldn't stomach the boredom, and the knowledge that there's two more chapters of that is not helping motivate me to finish.
34  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: BEST game you bought on a WHIM and LOVED <3 on: July 06, 2014, 10:55:38 PM
Depending on your definition of buying on a "whim," you could say that's how I buy most of my games. For example, I picked up Valkyria Chronicles when I saw it on sale while browsing for some games to play on my brand new PS3 and that became my favorite game of all time. But I had heard good things about it before, so I can't really say I didn't expect to love it.

However, if you only count games I hadn't heard a thing about before, or had no previous experience with the franchise, series, or characters, then that narrows down the list quite a bit:

Dark Cloud 2 - Even though I don't remember the exact details around my purchase of DC2, this was still back when I didn't really pay a lot of attention to games media, so I hadn't heard anything about it. I recognized the name from somewhere, but that's about it. So I bought it and at first didn't like it. The main character was some annoying kid in overalls running around a city with an incredibly annoying piece of music playing. But the longer I played the more I loved it, and it's one of my favorite games on the PS2.

Golden Sun - All I had seen aside from the boxart for this game was artwork of the world map. But it brought back feelings from retro SNES RPG's, so I picked it up and was happy that the turn based battle system had that classic feel down quite well. The psynergy puzzles were just surprising cherries on top.

I'll post again if I think of more good examples.

I'm double posting because my last post was well over a week ago and thus an "edit" seems improper.

I gave some more time to Battle Princess and I feel a bit warmer toward the title. In a mindless "90's fantasy anime" sort of way, the tone is very satisfying if your in the mood for that.

As for the mechanics, they are growing on me too. You really can't approach this game like you would a typical side-scrolling rpg-lite hack and slash. Once I figured that out, things began to feel MUCH better.

Is anyone else playing/enjoying (or even hating) this by chance or am I the lone princess here?

I bought it, but I haven't played too much of it because I find it incredibly difficult.

The game is going to have a genuine plot, so perhaps the TP focus is based around when the story is supposed to take place in relation to other titles? Just a guess.
37  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: July 04, 2014, 09:52:03 AM
The thing that bothered me with Lost Odyssey was that battles were both long and horribly frequent.

At least with Persona 2 you could just spam fusion spells and have the battle over in at most 2 turns.

The battles were also only rewarding for a brief period of time, since experience in the game scales with your level.
38  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: July 02, 2014, 11:23:57 PM
Anyone else wondering what sort of soundtrack this game is going to have? Would love to hear some battle remixes of non-battle Zelda classics. Imagining just blasting through waves of Gerudo to a bombastic version of Gerudo Valley and can't stop smiling.

39  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New "Secret Of Mana" for home consoles on the way on: June 30, 2014, 11:26:40 PM
Allow me to chime in with my obligatory comment about how I never thought much of any of the Mana games anyway. Secret of Mana was pretty good, but still manages to fall pretty low on my favorite SNES RPGs.

Work =/= Fun

Say that to FromSoft, not me clever man.

So condescension. Much defensive. Wow.

...okay, I'll stop. In reality, I don't care where people find their enjoyment and the more developers that design for under-catered audiences the better.
41  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: June 30, 2014, 01:36:41 PM
I would kill to have the combat from Dark Souls in a game that doesn't actively punishes me for playing it.

Is not FromSoft problem that they made a series of games in where people have to work a bit for their fun.

Work =/= Fun

I'm just hoping Desktop Dungeons gets a daily discount before this is all over.
43  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: June 27, 2014, 11:04:21 PM
My vision isn't so good lately and I read that as "brain flake"

Which made the second sentence a little stranger.

How dare you not preface that with "*This* is a link, mate."
45  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Legend of Heroes: Akatsuki no Kiseki on: June 26, 2014, 09:36:14 AM
Meh, can't stand online games with pre-made characters.
