Purchase + Subscription. I realize it's not everyone's favorite model, but the devs make it worth it. They plan (and so far have successfully implemented) to release an "Ultradrop" at the end of each month filled with loads of extra content. The end of the first month (last month) they released a drop with two new level 50 zones, a bunch of costume and decor stuff, and a plethora of general fixes. The drop at the end of this month has already been revealed to include a new PvP Battleground and a bunch of yet-to-be-announced content as well.

Plus if you find you're making a ton of money in the game, you can buy game time with in-game currency from other players thanks to the C.R.E.D.D system (This also works in the opposite direction, i.e. if you have extra cash you can buy game time and sell it to players in-game)

The Last Guardian is like that one girl you were interested in and then she got a boyfriend and you were like "maybe she'll realize I'm better and she'll break up with him" and then one day they get married and then you're like "maybe she'll realize he sucks and they'll get divorced and I'll swoop in" and then none of that never happens

And then you run into her 10 years later and leave the encounter wondering "What the fuck did I ever see in her!?"

Gave the Free-to-Play SOUL CALIBUR a try last night.

It's a really neat idea but I don't even know if I can say it has potential because there are just a ton of things the game gets wrong.

=> Loading times are atrocious and makes it feel like navigating menus is half of the game. What makes this more infuriating is the lack of streamlining. There are separate menus, for example, for selling gear, equipping gear, and crafting gems unto gear, and you can't do any of these things from the other menus. This means if you want to equip something new and sell the old piece, you have to wait for the character menu to load, wait for the equip menu to load, wait again for the character menu to load, and then wait for the sell menu to load.

=> The game commits a cardinal sin of new F2P games and doesn't allow the player to buy upgrades and other microtransactions with in-game currency. It's all real money based, except for a premium pack available to buy once a day with Friend Points, and I can guarantee you won't find as good of stuff in that one as the premium packs you pay for ($4 or $20, by the way)

=> With a focus on character levels and equipment, plus a much more limited moveset, the game feels more like a 1v1 action RPG than a fighting game. Not a dealbreaker for me, since I'm terrible at fighting games, but I recognize the title doesn't do a good job representing the franchise in this regard.

^ AHHH!! SO JELLY!! so jelly

Seriously, I'm glad that figurine doesn't have her wings or else I might never speak to you again out of sheer jealousy.

Not really.

Watched Captain Phillips this week. Excellent movie, and kudos to the director for having a tone in mind and sticking with it for the full length of the movie. Fantastic performances from everyone involved, engaging script that kept me on the edge of my seat, this movie had the full package. Really the best part of the movie was that the the Somalians were "antagonists" as opposed to full on villains.

Microsoft isn't really involved at all. If they were, Sony wouldn't have managed to get all the timed exclusives and whatnot. That being said, I also wouldn't be surprised to eventually see a PC version after the game has had enough time to move some consoles.

Dedicated fans have the least reason to be upset other than some empathy for the original published/developer. They already know which of the two is the "real" game in the series so the name on the box shouldn't make much difference as long as they get another instalment.

Except, it isn't about the dedicated fans as much as the regular fans that don't read about this kind of stuff and will simply buy the game titled "Harvest Moon." True fans of a series want as many people as possible to enjoy their favorite franchise so the franchise continues to thrive.

I've been sharing this story with every customer at my job that seems like they would enjoy the Harvest Moon games.

I suppose I should post something here since I haven't updated my gaming status in a while.

Playing Wildstar a lot still. Got my main up to level 31 now, currently doing the Bio-Domes on the moon, which is my second favorite area in the game (my favorite is the Squirg swamp). Best part of the Bio-Domes is how perfectly the team managed to blend nature and crazy advanced tech in both visuals and sound design.

Also working through Borderlands 2, Witch and the Hundred Knight, and Dynasty Warriors 8.

Finally, I decided to start playing Valkyrie Crusade (iOS CCG) again for the first time in a year. Falling right back into it and loving the changes that have been made since I last logged in.

I watched an LP and it looks fantastic, sadly I can't afford it right now though.

Great, now I'm reminded of the hours I spent with Battlefield 2142. :P Kinda miss that game. Wonder if it's on Steam?

EDIT: It's not available anywhere. :T

I get genuinely upset when people say that 2142 was when the series started to go downhill. I thought that game was just as fun, if not more fun, than Battlefield 2.

My biggest beef with Arkham City is the thug chatter... you're trying to listen to plot-important dialogue, and thugs keep interrupting with inane chatter. Or you're trying a specific challenge repeatedly, getting more frustrated each time, and the same three conversations playing over and over aren't helping.

i also feel like the straight-up combat sections get more and more tiresome the more thugs the game throws at you at once. The stalker sections are still amazing, though. And the catwoman bits make me wish Rocksteady would give Selina her own game. Arkham games meet Thief? I would play that in a heartbeat.

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.
718  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Destiny on: July 08, 2014, 10:32:18 AM
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.
720  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.
