It's time to stop using 15 year old games as the benchmark for bad voice acting.

I know, I was just observing that all these MMO's including a "free trial" advertised as such is a bit of a misdirection.

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.
716  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.
