Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright

I just finished chapter 4 last night. Holy shit.

I thought this game was dark for Professor Layton, now I think it's dark even for PHOENIX WRIGHT. Like, I'd be weary of recommending the game to little kids for fear of it giving them nightmares. The end of chapter 4 was really INTENSE. I got choked up, I held my breath, I got choked up again, and then I kind of wanted to scream at the game. It was certainly a wild ride.

It's actually made me realize why I've stopped putting story above gameplay this year. It's because I had given up. It has been SO long since I've played a game with a truly great story, but PL vs. PW really nails it on story.

I also want to echo Dice about how great the music is. Not only is the music excellent, but there's a huge amount of it. Especially in the trials.

I love the villains in FFVII. One of my favorite things about the game is the fact that as much as Sephiroth is played up, there really is no "Main Villain." Shinra, Hojo, Jenova, Sephiroth... they all had to play their part to make the plot play out as it did.

Man, you're all doing October wrong. Me, I plan on trying to play through Silent Hill 3 again. Only game that ever made me too scared to continue. Also, if I find myself with enough extra cash I might pick up the original Fatal Frame and/or Fatal Frame 2 on PSN.

The game is truly phenomenal! I only played three levels (and after those, I'm still in the game's "prologue") but those three levels felt a lot better than anything in a Dynasty Warriors game I"ve played. So far the missions are structured better with less confusing objectives than I was getting in my time with DW8.

My favorite feature is the weaknesses. Its' a bit like DWs weakness feature where you have a gauge to attack through before unleashing a special move. The winning difference is that instead of just relying on having the right weapon type, taking advantage of an enemy's weakness involves dodging a specific attack or using a specific tool at a specific time, much like battles in regular Zelda games.

The only negatives I have right now are the inability to use the classic controller in single player (I hate having the right thumbstick above the buttons), and the material aspect, where the game throws a gazillion normal rarity materials at you even though the most a single badge needs is 3 of one material.

Finished the end game stuff in .Hack//Outbreak today, moving on to Quarantine tomorrow morning. Also, in celebration of #2 getting a release date, I started a new game of Legend of Grimrock this week and hopefully I'll actually finish the game this time.

lol FFX-2 sux amirite?

Fuck you, I liked X-2.

Good for you. Maybe you can express that without condescendingly changing the original post and being vulgar.

I downloaded the Love Live! game since you're all so excited about it. It's a fun game, but I'm level 97 in Valkyrie Crusade and really only have the time to dedicate to one iOS game I need to play daily to "keep up." But as I said, I agree it's a fun game.

As I posted on The Escapist, I'm surprised they chalked up the cancellation to a "lack of passion" in the product. It implies nobody at Blizzard has any desire to move away from making games from the same three franchises over and over again.

Although given how long it takes them to do even the simplest things *cough*TheRestOfStarcraft2*cough* I don't think their team has much motivation to go around. Then again, I probably wouldn't either if my workplace had the same amenities as a resort spa.

ICYMI I don't think much of Blizzard as a company...

- Bravely Default is FF-like, but it is not an FF title by any means.

- This is the only site I know of where ARR still gets love. I don't understand it, personally.

Has anyone heard if the iOS 8 battery problem affects gen 2 iPads?

Decided to err on the side of caution and leave it with iOS 7. So, uh... y'all can get back to your haps now.

To be fair, this is the slums we're talking about and, given what's above them, I really don't want to know the contents of that "waterfall."

Also, on the FFXIII front I just wanted to give my 2 cents and say I thought Lightning Returns was actually the WORST of the three games.

I enjoyed it for the most part. People were worried that the pitch for "Crime drama, but in pre-Batman Gotham" would get overshadowed by the producers' need for "BATMAN REFERENCES EVERYWHERE!!!" So I was surprised that they managed to find a compromise, where they have plenty of Batman references, but they don't steal the show.

That being said, Selina just annoys me. They haven't presented any real character arc for her because she's essentially already just the Tiny Toon version of Catwoman.


Half the trailers for the show make it sound fantastic, the other half make it sound god awful. Thankfully the pilot was more on the former side. Maybe not fantastic, but certainly showing some potential. The only thing that hurts the show is that apparently the "director of Fast & Furious" has no drive (hehe) to diversify beyond his comfort zone. The show is about a bunch of geniuses solving problems, and the show still manages to find every opportunity it can to show off cool cars driving really fast and sometimes crashing.

Also, if the "human calculator" character spends one more line saying the group "Now has X% chance of success," I'm going to find the writers and punch them in the face for using a stereotype that is SO far off base. Sorry, someone that smart would know an accurate calculation for something like that would be impossible, much less something you can just blurt out on the dime.

Did Nintendo do anything this year? Like, a quick glimpse at previous posts and nothing nintendo related stood out at all. Were they there? You would think they'd at least show a little more of Zelda 2015 or something.

That trailer had me excited.

Everything that has come up after the trailer has me disappointed.

If the road trip is the entire game, then they haven't learned their lesson from XIII about making RPG's too linear. In fact, at least XIII didn't really *feel* linear in terms of settings and story, but if 90% of FFXV is a story of"Get from point A to point B," then I really don't have much interest in it.
