I tend to play multiple games but once I find myself enjoying one more than the others, I only play that one. Not really to knock a number off my backlog but rather I am simply having more fun with that one. Whether you play one game or many at once, at the end of the day, the aim of the game is to have fun.

Bravely Default

Yay, my backlog has actually decreased.

Disgaea 3 Absence of Detention

Got this with my Vita. Finished the main story. Still only near the beginning of the post game. My characters are only around the level 300 mark. I think I prefer playing Disgaea games on handheld over consoles. I have played the game before for PS3 but had stopped at the end of the main story. I probably prefer 1 and 4 more but it is still a great game. Rutile, one of the new Vita characters has to be the most boring character in any NIS game though. Not that she is a bad character, she is just really bland compared to the quirkyness of everyone else.

I saw a vita on special offer and decided to pick it up. I had planned on waiting until the library grew a bit but I had a few games I wanted to play that I got from PS plus, mainly Soul Sacrifice and New Little King's Story. The system runs great. Some of my favourite things about it are minor ones. I love how you can put it into sleep mode by just tapping a button. I have accidentally turned off my PSP more than once trying to put it into sleep mode. I agree with most of what HolyKael1 said in his first post. There are one or two things that bothered me though.

The spots that appear when a darkened screen lights up scared the shit out of me in the beginning. Thought it was damaged but seems it is a pretty common thing. Doesn't bother me now. Not like it is even noticeable outside of when a black screen lights up.

I forgot how much of a hassle switching between US and EU PSN accounts was. Should be easier after I buy a second memory card though. It isn't like the PSP was much better so I don't really judge it but it is still pretty annoying.

I think we talked about that theory in depth in a thread a year or two ago. I can't remember.

I went searching for that thread and instead found this


When the heck did RPGFan have fanfics?

I like this theory. It is actually a good read despite the name of it. It may be conspiracy like but at least it means
Rinoacia never really happened

Thanks Star. I thought it might be 9 PM GMT but just wanted to be sure I didn't miss it.

What time will the quiz be? I may have missed it by a bit over 41 days according to the clock.

-Time Travel. The more timey wimey the better.

- I love when rpgs have some mystery behind them.

-If a character has a certain gameplay ability they should be able to use it in the story. If they don't they shouldn't have it in the first place.

- If you have 6 party members but only 3 can go into battle, all six should get full exp to make them all viable in future battles.

- All party members should be somewhat different gameplay wise. That is one thing I wasn't fond with in the mid to late game FFVI, FFVII and FFVIII. Oddly, I didn't mind FFV at all.

-Bosses that require some strategy to beat.

-No missables.

- Memorable villains.

-No Mary Sue or Gary Stu please.

-I tell myself that I prefer tragic stories but secretly I love happy endings.

So I've been playing the demo....and I really don't get why this game is so anticipated. Can anyone explain to me what is so amazing about this game? Because I have been meh about it since I first saw it and the demo has not convinced me otherwise.

The demo isn't the greatest representative of the game. It dumps you into the second continent, under leveled and under equipped. The game itself is a lot better at easing you into things. The game also does not have fetch quests like the demo has. However if your issue is with the gameplay and job system then it could mean it simply isn't your type of game.

Some of my fondest memories are when I was playing soccer with my entire family or that motorcycle level on Crash Bandicoot 3 Warped. Only video game my parents ever tried. We were like those families on the TV commercials except without the creepy smiles and actually having fun.

I agree with Kevadu's list. If you are worried about the BG1 engine, I think there are mods around that can either put Baldurs gate 1 into the second games engine or join the two together and play them as one. You need both games for either to work though. I think they are called Trinity and Tutu.

I really liked Planescape Torment but it should be mentioned that the combat is not that fun but the writing is great.

I love Icewind Dale but it suffers from the exact opposite problem. It focuses on the gameplay but lets the story take a backseat for the most part.

Divine Divinity is like a Diablo clone with humour. I don't like comparing it to Diablo but that is probably the easiest wat to describe its gameplay.

The Elder Scrolls are fun games. Morrowind is my favourite but the later two installments are probably a lot easier to get into these days.

I never got to far into it but I know Mesh really likes Gothic
Although his favourite game is TES II Daggerfall <3

Then there are games like The Witcher, Simon the Sorceror, Septerra Core and King of Dragon Pass.
