3DS e-shop still won't connect for me. Hopefully it is just server load rather than any real issue.


Are you perhaps the experiencing the dreaded 007-2100 error? It's pretty common, but there are some easy fixes that usually work. You could try changing the DNS setting.

On your 3DS:
1. Go to settings
2. Choose Internet Options
3. Choose Connection Settings
4. Choose your current connection and change settings
5. Choose DNS (second screen)
6. Select No and go to detailed set-up
7. Primary DNS 008.008.008.008, Secondary DNS 008.008.004.004.
8. Test your connection. If it functions, try accessing the eShop

The 007-2100 might also be related to the latest update (which you probably just installed, because that's the one that introduced MiiVerse on the 3DS), in which case you'll just have to wait and see, I guess. Nintendo is working on it.

Yeah, I had just done the latest update. Thankfully it was working this morning. Guessing it was due to server load. The normal Mii plaza update was not working at the time either. First time I had an issue with it. Didn't realise there was a common problem.

Skyrim mod that changes ALL dragons with Thomas the Tank Engine.
1:50 for where the magic is about to start.  It is the greatest mod ever. xD



I actually laughed out loud. It just got better and better especially as everyone was so serious and it flowed perfectly.

Ralof: Jarl Ulfric! What was that? Could the legends be true?

And then people start getting tossed around like ragdolls by the apparently psychic Tank Engine.

You make it sound like a bad thing.

Frozen

Really liked this movie and probably enjoyed it as much as Tangled and Brave. I do agree with grim on the snowman though. Sven the reindeer was great but  Olaf just reminded me of Mort the annoying ginger from family guy. I also liked the little nod to arrested development near the beginning.

I didn't mind the whole princess thing mainly because she was a princess all the way through and didn't just discover it at the end. Brave was similar I suppose but Merida felt more like a chiefs daughter than a princess.

Code:
Wasn't expecting Hans betrayal even though it was obvious Kristoff was "the one". I didn't expect the kiss to work but thought they would have pulled some Disney shenanigans and suggested Elsa and Hans hook up after the end of the movie. Glad they went the way they did.

Mii verse is weird, not really sure what to think of it.

the Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Not even going to try to explain my feelings on this. I can't even say for sure if I enjoyed it or not. Leaning more on liking it.

I can see some people hating it but I found it interesting. I haven't felt this way about a movie since Oldboy. Not that they are similar movies or anything, just that they left me with that similar feel at the end.

I feel there's a ton of weirdo parallels between Kingdom Hearts and Star Wars, so I just kinda ride it out.
I wouldn't be surprised if Sora's dad comes out with spikier hair and as the final villain.

So Sora's dad = Ansem? I suppose we can change it around a bit and call him Mesna or Soransem.

Atelier Totori
At what appears to be the last boss with about a year and a half left.

Started up Mana Khemia
I caught up to the ruins where I had previously left off years ago. Muppy, where have you been all my life ~ <3

I love how the game makes you interested in NPCs. They have their own little stories rather than their entire life being centred around you.

I dunno, I'm enjoying FF13.... but does that story deserve 3 fucking games or is square just trying to break even on all the development they did on that universe and engine... ?

FFXIII is pretty much a standalone story and ties up most loose ends. FFXIII-2 is similar to Virtues Last Reward in that it tries to continue a pretty much finished story. VLR does handle it a bit better though.

VLR
Code:
Except for All Ice.


I want lightning returns to die in a fire. XIII was a terrible game, XIII-2 had some decent gameplay but was overall a shitty game, and I'm tired of SE thinking that we want more of this style and world. I genuinely am not excited for this at all, and will do everything I can to give SE no money to support this crappy title.

I had fun with them :(
I like that SE tried to do some new things with the original FFXIII. A lot of them didn't really work out but FFXIII-2 showed the gameplay aspects in a more polished light. Course, three games is a lot of attention to be paying to one world. FFXIII-2 kind of reminds me of FFX-2 in that I enjoyed the gameplay but the story didn't match the first game.

The whole Returners sub-plot kinda bums me out these days seeing as how they kinda go "missing" in the second stretch of the game.

I always thought that the empire offed Banon and the rest during the Flying Continent scenario. Gives me more resolution than everyone just died during the WoB transformation into the WoR.

But then again, I am the guy who thought Gestahl was a dog until I saw his picture in FFVI Advance.

My left earphone has suddenly stopped working. It is a sad day for Darilon :(

My own fault for buying cheap ones but I get them caught in door handles(bane of my existance) often enough that I prefer playing safe and buying cheap. I hate that you can slowly feel them die on you. First stage has you twisting the wire slightly until you can hear from both. Stage two leaves you with only one side working and stage three leaves you with the horror of silence.

I was going to ask if Totori was worth playing for someone who hated Rorona, but I ended up just oing on a huge rant about every little thing I didn't like about a game I only managed to play 5 hours of before giving up entirely, and besides I'm pretty sure the answer is pretty well documented thanks to other users asking similar questions at other points in time.

Perhaps I'll just ask two very specific questions:

1) How is the pacing in Totori? Is the story introduced in a timely manner? Is there a proportionate sense of urgency compared to what you're required to do? In the time spent with Rorona, I couldn't even recite a single plotpoint other than "Rorona has to fulfill a quota or she has to find a new job", which felt almost almost inconsequential because of the general lack of any sense of urgency within the story itself. Only through gameplay did it become apparent that you really did have a strict time limit.

2) Did they fix the strange time allotments? There was nothing quite as baffling as going out to the woods right outside town, like right outside the door, and losing over an entire week going there and back, despite the entire adventure lasting under a half an hour. I think that alone turned me off the game the hardest. I'm only given a certain amount of time to do a job, yet the time it takes to collect the ingredients and make the stuff you're requested just doesn't feel correctly proportioned to what you're trying to do. After an in-game month, I was barely able to raise the collection meter one star. What the hell?

If anybody would like to answer those questions, I'd much appreciate it. I already own all 3 games, in fact I practically bought the PS3 just to play them, and I've been incredibly tempted to just sell them off, seeing as they're half the PS3 RPGs I still own and it would make my PS3 backlog a lot quicker to get through without those looming over my head.

There is no real sense of urgency in Totori. You have three years to earn enough adventure points by doing random things like synthesizing 25 items or beating 15 puni monsters. Then you have another two years to beat the games primary goal. They are really generous with the time so I don't see it being a problem. You can also fight bosses but I think that only the final boss is mandatory. The rest seem to be optional although they give loads of adventure points. The time chunks will probably be worse for you though. It now takes time to gather items in the wild and to battle enemies. That said, Roroma is by far the strictest of the three when it comes to time management.

It might be best just trying Totori as you already own it. Meruru is also an option but the gameplay kind of makes it harder to get into Totori due to the improvements. It also really spoils Totori's plot.

I wouldn't mind if they added something like the bonus dungeon in FFIV for GBA. Most character trials were the average kind but I loved Kain's murder mystery one and Cecils was also pretty cool.

They did in the GBA port of FFVI. It sucked.

I didn't try it but wasn't that just a regular dungeon rather than being more original like Kain and Cecil's trials were? I know the rest of the FFIV trials were really average though. Shame the FFVI dungeon sucks though. I enjoyed the one in FFV although I do prefer the gameplay in V over IV and VI.
