Yeah, I think I can see how the 1-Track vs diversity thing would make one particularly more unbearable over the other. So far there hasn't been any other form of comedic attempts aside from said subject material. Honestly I can't really say if Conception II takes itself seriously or not simply because so far there's enough evidence for both sides to have a valid argument.

I completely agree with both this statement and Dice's comments. It's like I said earlier, the game takes itself just seriously enough and there's so little other content to keep the humor alive, that all the innuendos and skeevy comments make the game more creepy than silly.

Again, this isn't my being prude. I play plenty of JRPG's with lots of T&A and moe girls giggling about each other's boobs, and this game still managed to make me feel uncomfortable.

Saw this game in action today.

....I may have to re-budget some things.

I think folks are being a little too unfair to the reviewer. I'm all for fanservice and eye candy and whatnot, but from the demo I agree with the article, which isn't criticizing the presence of that stuff, but rather that the game tries too hard, doesn't really have the right tone to be more silly than creepy, and offers nothing else in return.

On an unrelated topic, anyone know what the third game the reviewer was referencing in the intro was?

Beards are becoming pretty common in Ireland lately for some reason. No idea where it suddenly came from. Makes me happy though. As someone who looks slightly less bad with a beard and older :(, I am happy to no longer stand out.

Post may contain bad grammararer. Never completely sure with things like less bad. Sounds wrong but at the same time, not as horrible as less worse. I could have used something different but I like having some self esteem. Actually, my whole post could be littered with poor grammar.

"not as bad" or in the case of your sentence "doesn't look quite as bad"

I love my cat, but I certainly think one cat is plenty. And yes, if you already have a pet I don't see why they would be encouraging you to get another one. I'd understand if you were acting lonely and depressed, but unless you're completely different off the forums, I don't really see that.

There is SO MUCH STUFF in Lego Marvel Super Heroes. Played for 2 and a half hours last night and went from 11.0% to 15.6% Thinking once I finish the main game and start doing the free play stuff, that number will go up a lot faster. Certainly seemed to be the case with LOTR.

Meanwhile... Finally out of the prologue of Trails in the Sky after 11 hours. Mind you, I did a lot of pointless grinding because of taking huge breaks and forgetting what I was doing.

I liked the first best as well.  It feels the least forced and more focused.  But, as I've ranted before, I also tend to dislike the battle system used in 2 and V, so that is probably clouding my judgement.

How would that be clouding your judgement? Disliking a game's battle system seems like a pretty legitimate reason for disliking the game itself to me.

Just a random boredom thought:

Did anyone else smile for that little quip hinting at the origin of the Summoner's Horn on Gagazet?

It's the little things that make FFX so special to me.
39  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Jax & Daxter VS Sly Cooper on: April 14, 2014, 05:27:02 PM
If you want a more sandbox-style action adventure game, go with Jak and Daxter. The first one is a typical 3D platformer of the PS1, PS2 era and is relatively short, but from there it goes sandbox style. I will say in my opinion though that Jak 2 is the most frustrating game I've ever played, particularly anything involving vehicles.

Sly Cooper games are a little more linear, but just like Jak 2+, the later titles allow for more freedom and exploration in each level.

Both are great choices, though (again, discounting my hatred for Jak 2)

I have more of a problem with the characters than the VA's behind them. Tiz's entire story arc ends in the middle of Chapter 3, Agnes only has a mind of her own when she's being incredibly unreasonable, and Ringabel suddenly turns into a caricature of himself towards the end of chapter 2. All of that just helps to highlight what an awesome character Edea is.

Playing Lego Marvel Super Heroes my PS3 or the game itself is really acting up all of a sudden. Had it shut down to the XMB on me once and then the game froze. Guess I better upload some save files incase my PS3 is on it's last legs.

Made it to Chapter 5 in Bravely Default. While the major twist was already spoiled for me by all you folks' "hints" (yes, saying 'you have to do everything over again' isn't exactly subtle) I was pleasantly taken aback by the twist involving Ringabel. Tried to do the first subquest again before doing any grinding and got my butt kicked by the Monk's death throes.

You know, I never understood the way new MMO's do their free trials. You still have to buy the game to get the free trial, so it's not so much a "free trial" as it is a "grace period as a way of saying thanks for buying the game."

What I'm trying to say is as much as I love MMO's, I don't have enough confidence that I'd enjoy this one to gamble $60 on it.

I am spreading my comcast/xfinity story everywhere. This is the message I left on their facebook. Feel free to share. I frustrated as fuck by them-

Oh ‪#‎Comcast‬ ‪#‎xfinity‬. You have replaced the old c-word (and not cancer) as the c-word in my vocabulary. You make me so angry. I refuse to say your name any longer.
Since I moved into the current apartment a year ago I have had nothing but problems. Not all of them have been your fault. Some of them have been because of the wiring issues of the apartment itself.
Recently I began to have trouble with my X1 service after switching a few weeks ago. All started out well, then the any room DVR part stopped working. You sent out a tech and he moved some stuff around and said "I don't know", then you sent out another tech to switch out the X1 with the old style system for the any room DVR, but he said that it wouldn't work if he switched it (even though it had worked previous to X1), after some more complaining you actually had a tech look at it via the computer system to see if things were working. They said it was active, but not on, so another tech came out to see what the issue was. He is one that had come to visit way back last year when I was having a lot of internet issues.
He advised me that the reason it wasn't working was because of the way the wiring was set up in the apartment.
Well, that's a bummer, I get that. Why then, did they install X1? I explained the set up and that it was essentially two separate lines, to the original tech. So it took 4 people to realize that x1 just won't work in my apartment. Ok. Again, that's fine. It's a bit irritating, but nothing that can be done about it now. Also I am moving soon so I can deal with the lack of any room DVR for a month, give or take, so no big deal.
Then you have the BALLS to charge me for tech visits without telling me you would be doing so AND charge me for the service that I can't use because of the apartment wiring? I get that you can't know that was the issue (despite this being the issue previously and I would imagine is or at least should be noted in your account, and is DEFINITELY noted on the box outside the apartment) but why is it that I am being charged? Especially when this is an escalated issue?
So there it is, #comcast #xfinity. These are the reasons I am breaking up with you. I am not sure what I will do, because there aren't a lot of choices, but I am done over paying and then getting nickel and dimed every time I have an issue. Tomorrow I will be returning my equipment to your offices

Comcast is the Sallie Mae of cable service providers. AKA inhumanly bad customer service, tries to sell you shit you don't need, charges you for their mistakes, and when you try to leave offers you every deal they currently have available.

Your story is unfortunately not unusual, and actually seems more par for course with them.
45  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: April 11, 2014, 06:14:42 PM
Ah, see the others were telling me it was possible, and thus I thought necessary, to do the quest in chapter 4. If that's not the case, then I'm not going to worry about it. Thanks!
