This is huge. You get an extra golden key for signing up too.

You use these keys to unlock a special loot chest in Sanctuary. You get awesome stuff that's scaled to your level.

I've been getting these since they first launched the game, along with my buddy. He has over 16 keys, LOL. I'd have more but I can't resist the temptation to open the hell out of that chest. The loot you get from the chest is funsies, too.

HD port of Panzer Dragoon Saga.

Apparently this is one of those famous Japanese games where the original source code was lost.

Which sucks.
It sucks to the max.

I find that hard to believe. Still, if it's true, WHOOPSIEDOODLE.

That's good.  I'm gonna wait, and if I can't have those games any more, then maybe I re-evaluate based on the new games whether I even want it or not. :)

I will say that I'm delighted with my Vita purchase so far, and ohmy god if the new freebies for next month include Lumines I'm going to explode with joy fire.

Listening now, and man, I have to say that whole Playstation Plus thing on the Vita is realllly tempting me.  But I don't know how the whole thing works.  Can anyone give me some details?

I have a PS3 and a Vita.  Does one subscription cover me on both?

Am I right in the following?  If I get the subscription, I get free games.  If I stop subscribing, I lose access to those games.  If I were to resubscribe, I'd get them back.  If I'm subscribed when something becomes free, I can get it free later, even if it stops being free to new subscribers and I didn't download it back when it was free.

The current free offerings look pretty awesome.  Any way to know how long they'll stick around?  I'm not sure I'll have the $50 to throw at an annual subscription until Christmas.


1 subscription DOES cover both. I just got a Vita, and along with my two physical games, thanks to PS+ I have something like eight or nine games to play already.

The free games are free, but you have to download them to your account during the month that they're available. Once you do that, as long as you have an active membership (even if you cancel and resub), you will always have access to those games. But after the month they're listed on the store as free, if you haven't already registered them to your account, you'd have to pay for them. So once this month is over, the current crop of freebies will no longer be listed as free, but as long as you clicked on them to register them to your account, you'll own them for as long as you have PS+.

And yeah, the current free offerings ARE awesome. :) It's one of the reasons I got that Amazon bundle for Vita-- it came with three months of free PS+ and PS All Stars, so basically it came with something like 18 games free, by the end. :)

I can appreciate that. But I'd be interested to know how many of their players "finished" the game. I've never had the patience to do "everything" in any MMO... well, except LOTRO. I got to the max level and then they released the Moria expansion, ROBBING ME OF MY SENSE OF COMPLETION!
1045  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: FFXIV 2.0 - Holy Shit!? on: November 28, 2012, 08:27:08 PM
Even The Old Republic, an MMO which got a much better reception had troubles maintaining a subscription based model
The problem isn't the subscription based model.  It never has been a problem.  World of Warcraft still sees tremendous success, as does the much smaller but still very successful Eve Online.  They both do what they do exceptionally well.  The Old Republic couldn't retain subscribers because Bioware failed to produce meaningful content updates post-launch.  If you do not provide the means for your playerbase to remain entertained, they will leave, especially if the competition actively updates their games.

The success or failure of FFXIV and the subscription model it is using will depend largely on the content they provide at launch and their ability to continue delivering more content.  People want value for their $10-$15/month subscription.  If you provide it, people will pay it.  If they aren't forthcoming with their update schedule and what they plan to bring to their playerbase, they will move on.

I disagree, the problem with ToR is that it was going for the exact same market slice as WoW, which was dumb. They could have released meaningful content updates til they were blue in the face, that game was still gonna tank.

Episode 53 is live.  Enjoy!

I thought I'd have a hard time figuring out which user was you.

And then I saw the username and the Diablo avatar...

A winner is Rob!

Pretty sure. I think they released a cheap model in Japan that doesn't, but I'm not sure if it ever made it here.

Golden Sun is the serie with the most backtracking I've ever seen.
It's like there's this designer somewhere getting sexual satisfaction out of making you walk back to every town you've been to after every single dungeon.

And if it isn't the endless backtracking, it's the endless walls of text which also have a severe tendency to endlessly backtrack upon itself.

I'm sorry, I thought we were talking about Golden Sun, not modern Zelda :D

Thanks to an LP that started back when forum lurkers were still on :frogout: I was reminded of something I regret.

Playing Beyond the Beyond.

Aw come on, I liked that game. It's pretty much Golden Sun haha.

Also, InFamous was fun as hell. So was the second one.

Yeah, I think it just has to do with using old or out of date encryption or something. My 3DS works here, so I'm hoping the Vita does too, because I anticipate being online with that more often.
