I too love my Vita and I'm happy to hear Sony actually managed to sell quite a few this holiday season. Maybe now they'll pay more attention to it and it will be more than a footnote at E3.

I've mostly been playing Project Diva F, primarily because I've been on a streak of accomplishing goals in that game. First I managed to clear all the songs on Hard Mode, I'm only 3 songs away from getting all Perfects in Easy Mode, and I'm only 150,000 Diva Points away from unlocking every module.

I've also found a really fun (and addictive, but aren't they all?) iOS game called Spirit Stones. It's a little like the Puzzles & Dragons formula in that it's a TCG combined with a Match-3 Puzzle RPG, but it uses a different match-3 game that I find a little more interesting and it doesn't take a frustratingly long time to progress.

Funny, I find a heavy focus on crafting and/or upgrading equipment a huge plus in my RPG's.

Happy Gregorian New Year! (or is that "Happy New Gregorian Year!")

Whatever, make the most of it.

I can say that Vesperia is a wild ride and certainly worth playing while XIII-2 is good, but not great. I'll also add that I recommend leaving Infinite Undiscovery on the back burner. A lot of people like it, but I couldn't stand the exploration. I love exploring everything in a game, and the way IU's map works you uncover a VERY tiny circle of it around your party as you're running through an area. This means covering every inch of a map means literally covering every inch of a map. This is made worse by the fact that areas are massive but completely devoid of anything interesting (Making the title ironically perfect).

I guess that was more of a rant about why I couldn't stand Infinite Undiscovery than genuine advice.

Need one more Flawless Crystal for the CT prereq, each one is taking forever since I didn't participate in the initial rush.

FATE's guys! FATEs are so awesome we should use them for everything!


EDIT: First CT run went *fairly* well. Wiped once on bone dragon, bomb, and behemoth but we got through it. I have to say the Bone Dragon, while not too difficult, is incredibly annoying.

Took me a while to reply, because I was having trouble picking just one scene from "Airplane!," but I ultimately decided on Roger, Roger!

Also the last 20 minutes of "The Prestige"

I'm too lazy to check, but one thing I'm noticing is that in some modern RPGs, there aren't subtitles or text boxes during animated voiced cutscene cinematics.  Sometimes the audio isn't mixed well and I can't hear the voices.  Sometimes I have to play a game at a reduced volume for whatever reason and I can't hear the words.    I want to be able to read what the characters are saying too. 

On that note--and this is more a problem I have with games in general, though it's certainly more noticeable in RPG's where the balance is so important--I hate that in this day and age there are still games without individual volume controls in the game settings. I had to stop replaying Star Ocean 3 because I just can't deal with how much quieter the voices are than the music.

I really wish I could figure out an explanation as to why when someone mangles a thought into that "doge" meme sentence structure I just want to punch something really hard. I find it so infuriatingly annoying and I don't know why. It's just a harmless random meme that will go away soon enough and yet I hate it so so much.

But I can see why people might enjoy a fairly basic brawler with funny (though not exactly original) characters.  Sometimes you just want something a little silly like that.  Not every game needs to be The Last of Us.

That's certainly my impressions on the game. It's simple, it's silly, and it's a nice time suck when you want a break from the norm.

Everyone I know interested in this game only ever talks about the Vita version, but I'm completely skipping those for the PS3 version. I know the Vita screen is amazing and the game will look just fine, but I'd much rather play FFX on the big screnn

I also really love the voice acting in Xenoblade. And I can assure you that it's not just because everyone has a smexy accent, 'cause so did everyone in DQVIII and I like the VA in Xenoblade infinitely more.

And I just got home from a work day of pure torture only to find out I can't seem to connect to Steam. Unlike normal server issues, the program is making me enter my password all of a sudden, then tells me that I'm either not connected to the Internet or my Internet isn't configured for Steam. I have changed nothing, Steam was working fine when I turned off my computer and headed to work this morning.

And now it randomly started working again. Story of the technology in my life all of a sudden.

Indeed, I hope everyone is having a good Christmas. I got a mini-fridge for Christmas, which is pretty useful but it does kind of diminish the "play with your new toys" part of the holiday. Ah well, might try and pick out a new game on Steam to give a go with.
