If it helps, I turned off the security on my router for the amount of time it took me to download this. Turned it back on right after, no problemo.

Don't forget the 'hey go collect a hundred million zillion rupees that your wallet can't hold so I can translate Triforce charts for you" sequence in Wind Waker. I hated that part.

Generally speaking, though, I don't like 3D Zelda and find the entire games to be 'annoying sequences.' I made it to the Triforce chart section in Wind Waker, and beat Skyward Sword. SS was FULL of 'annoying sequences.' I hate OoT and have never been able to get through that game, it just felt like such a damn slog to me. The 2D ones (especially the Capcom ones and LttP) seemed to abandon that "BIG ADVENTURE SO WE MUST SEND YOU ON ALL MANNER OF ANNOYING TASKS BEFORE YOU CAN GET TO THE DUNGEON' pretense, but it's been a long time so I may not remember as well.

Do you know why it won't work on the WiFi at your place? I had to change the settings on my router temporarily to get it to connect.

I don't think I'd personally go that far. I haven't seen anything that isn't a sleepily executed JRPG trope so far. Fortunately, it's not really the point of the game anyway. The combat is enjoyable and there are a lot of options, so that's keeping my interest.

Been playing this (Elminage Original) for a while. Game is enjoyable so far. Very old school, and not at all accessible to new players in any way. Translation is a awful slapdash job. I think I'd actually have an easier time reading the Japanese, haha. It's very much like playing a classic turn based RPG from the early 90's. The music is pretty enjoyable, too.


Now I've got 8 hours on the game. I like it, but it's grindy. If you like Wizardry, you'll like this. People on GameFAQs are saying "the NPC conversation translations are really good! It's just system messages that are borked!" which is flat-out wrong. I know unlocalized Japanese when I see it, and this game has it all over the place. It's like playing Phantasy Star I all over again. The conversations were translated completely literally without any attempt to make them sound natural or "not-Japanese." Still, it's functional enough. Usually.

Basically if you like dungeon crawlers with multiclassing and lots of classes, this one won't disappoint. Shame the translation is utter garbage.

I just finished Heir to the Empire, the first of the Thrawn trilogy (Star Wars). What a fantastic book. Some of the prose was a little bit cliched, but man was that a fun book to read. Just picked up the other two!

I actually liked the Capcom Zeldas.  Oracle of Seasons, Oracle of Ages, and Minish Cap were pretty fun.

Those are actually my three favorite Zeldas, along with LttP :)

I will be picking it up so I can have it on Vita and PS3. I enjoyed the beta and couldn't give a shit less that it's a Smash Bros clone.

Well this is certainly something. I'm a sucker for Time's Scar covers, too. :D

Mass Effect (all of them)

Didn't reset after Ashley killed Wrex in ME1

Let Archer keep his brother in Project Overlord in ME2

I should probably feel bad about letting Garrus shoot Sidonis but I don't.

Sabotaged the genophage in ME3 ie. shooting Mordin

Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes

No, don't let this poster con you into playing this overrated piece of shit. It's a trap!

Disagree, I just beat the PC version of it, that game is fun as hell.

I believe I speak for us all when I say:

1453  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: PlayStation Plus for Vita debuting with 6 free games on: November 21, 2012, 05:58:51 PM
I got two free months of PS+ because IGN gave codes out for PS All-Stars Beta. I'm LMAOing because I literally just got like 15 games for free-- GAMES THAT I WANTED. That said, I'm going to subscribe because it's a fantastic deal.

lol, we are not going to *not* source a site just because a reader doesn't like them. If we couldn't have found something sooner/otherwise/with English info, it certainly doesn't hurt to credit.

This. Not everyone keeps close tabs on publisher websites, feeds, and news, so for many people SiliconEra is a perfectly acceptable source.

I know, it doesn't work. It works fine when I switch to the scythe, so it's not the controller.
