Today I found the last of the Octos and heart pieces, now all I have to do is get the upgraded net from the Treacherous Tower and then hopefully I'll be ready to beat the game with everything (aside from the rumored Cucco Dash prize)

Love some of the little details in this game, like Link eating the apples he picks up, or the fact that if you have the lantern equipped it will not only show up on Link's belt, but will also be on Paint Link's belt, too. Shows how much care went into this game, despite it initially sounding like a nostalgia powered cash grab.

Yeah, that scenery really made me want to see a 3D remake of LttP in the aesthetic of WW. Though I am very happy with the different-kind-of-3D sequel we got instead.

Wind Waker HD

Won't lie, I'd love trophies for Zelda games.  Do the three heart challenge (Gold).  Beat X Boss in #min (Silver).  Chart every part of the Sea (Bronze).  Cut down 1,000 patches grass, bush, or tree.  Roll into the wall 100 times.  Etcetera....etcetera

I love how Tetra goes from this mischievous little pirate Cpatain to helpless Princess all thanks to a wardrobe change and new hairdo and makeup.  Granted, the circumstances are against her I guess, and I guess you can factor "repressed memories"...but eh.

Also, when you're in Deep Sea Hyrule castle and you go out the front entrance, there's a giant tower in the distance...is that an LoZ reference that I'm forgetting about??

The entire area is supposed to be the Hyrule from Link to the Past. The tower is the Tower of Hera (or was it called Eagle Tower in LttP?) You can also see the Lost Woods and Kakariko Village.

Signed up for PS Plus pretty much just so i can get Dragons Dogma Dark Arisen for "free". Then it tells me it's a 12GB download!!! Holy shit! Even with fast internet, that's going to take a while.

Wouldn't have been the same price just to get the game?

Cheaper, actually. The game was $40 on release and I can only imagine the price has gone down since. Then again, I got PS+ 18 months ago and have never regretted it. Despite how many times a game that I already bought and have yet to play ends up free.

Been playing some Soul Sacrifice since it was free. I don't really see how my friend got so obsessed with this game. The controls are pretty clunky, the combat is a bit generic and boring, the missions are set in very plain stages with deceptively gorgeous decor, and as far as I can tell thus far, the story is a mess. I might play a couple more missions to see if it gets better but so far I am not impressed.

The concern isn't that it isn't explained in these stories how magic "works," more that magic is just sort of there and doesn't seem to have any effect on the world or it's culture. Any world that has some form of magic would most definitely be affected by it.

And yes, there are examples of stories that handle magic's effect on society fairly well. The simplest example would be Final Fantasy IX, where magic is a fairly unique ability and the political powers of the world are seeking out any source of magic they can find to utilize as weapons against their enemies.

Since I believe Marvelous produces the Rune Factory games, I'm hoping they won't just let the IP die into oblivion, but whether or not they actually do anything with it is another question altogether.

I don't think you've added me yet. Alma Wyndsong.

Obviously when I say the fourth dungeon I don't mean "THE" fourth dungeon. I mean I finished four dungeons.
715  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Wishlist 2014 on: November 28, 2013, 05:50:42 PM
I've also realized I forgot a few. Like Xillia 2, DKC: Tropical Freeze, and Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls.

Though we probably won't see the latter until 2015, 'cause Blizzard can't keep a reasonable development time on expansions.
716  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Zelda LttP 2 for 3DS on: November 28, 2013, 05:38:07 PM
I just finished the fourth Lorule dungeon. Went back to try and get the bonus chest that I missed in the Dark Palace (The one in the middle of 2F), can't for the life of me figure it out.

^ Four words: Atlus developed. Valkyria Chronicles.

Yes please!
718  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Microsoft, gonna be in hot water for this one.... on: November 27, 2013, 01:59:40 PM
small-minded is pretty much the summation of all of Microsoft's marketing strategies of late.

My favorite was the Bing street team that was all like "Hey! If you can differentiate Bing from Google (aka the search engine you see everyday most likely) we'll give you a free XBox and use you as a testimonial!"

For anyone who didn't notice, PS+ free game this week is Soul Sacrifice on the Vita. Heard some pretty good things about it.
720  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: November 26, 2013, 07:44:15 PM
A lot of people got fired today... again.
Since spring, they've been cutting left and right at my corp.

What pisses everyone off is that things are going well and we are actually making good profits.
They're just cutting people to make the big numbers even bigger and get even more huge bonuses.

Corporate greed Greed is a fucking awful thing and it will fuck the whole world over eventually.

Ever since corporations had to let so many people go when the economy tanked, they've learned they can get by with less of a workforce than they were originally keeping on. They pass this information on to other corporations, and now here we are. The unemployment rate is no longer an accurate measurement of the economy.
