X-2 is canon officially but not for me.

You might end up being happy with what is happening in the FF X world then.

  Well... instead of not being canon it would probably be better to say everything that happens in X-2 becomes irrelevant... as well as a large chunk of X

Few people actually stick to their words. If the game is good they will buy it and eat crow.

I think Lard meant it differently than a boycott. I know that very few people who threaten to boycott a game actually follow through but losing interest in something is pretty different. Even if they hear it got good reviews they might wait until a sale to pick it up. Less of a "Stick it to the man" and more of a "Probably safer to buy something I know I will like"

Not there yet. Lack of time to play means I have only beaten the first two dungeons.

I am running Gaze,r Paladin and Fighter in the front row while I have a Healer and Wizard in the back.

Paladin and Wizard seem to be my weakest members.

Edit: Just found out the news section on RPGFan already has this covered. Think they only covered the rpgs though.

There is going to be a Golden Week sale starting today/tomorrow on the US PSN. Some pretty good deals if you have Playstation Plus. The discounts for non plus members are still decent but there is a fair difference.

Link to see the deals laid out a hell of a lot nicer than I have done

Made some Rice Krispie buns. Most went into those bun holder things for later. I did set aside a bowl of it to eat by myself while it was still warm. I basically treated it like it was cereal. I have no regrets.

I love the designs of the Colossi in Shadow of the Colossus. I would post a picture of them but I find they seem a lot more impressive in the game itself. A screen shot just doesn't capture them as well as seeing them in motion for me.

A lot of people have already mentioned Breath of Fire but one thing I really liked was how different all of the avatars of the Endless look. Would have been easy for Capcom to just make them hooded figures and call it a day.

I really like the character designs from Atelier Ayesha and how normal looking a lot of them seem( a certain witch is excluded)

FF X-2 Opening Theme

This is probably my favourite piece in the entire game. I spend ages at the loading screen just listening to it play.
53  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: April 25, 2014, 06:29:50 AM
If you really start liking things, I recommend talking to NPCs, they'll flesh out the story/world more than plot-related cutscenes.  ...Which reminds me, I always felt such melancholy when an NPC would say "so long" before they even really say anything.  And I always liked how classes were divvied up; indeed, the bottom levels look like shit and hell and nasty.

Oh, and up to you, but there is a buy/sell exploit to gain "infinite money" if you're not feeling the grind.

Yeah, I am really enjoying the NPCs in the game. It is unusual for me to repeatedly talk to every NPC I see but this game handles them well.

I listened to the extra audio that is in the FFX/FFX-2 HD collection. Didn't seem too bad to me. Went online to find out more and discovered that it continues on from an FF X 2.5 Novel. Read a summary of the novel and couldn't stop laughing my ass off.

Tidus and Yuna get shipwrecked on an Island. Tidus sees what appears to be a blitzball and tries to kick it only to discover that it is a bomb. It explodes and kills Tidus, sending his head flying over to Yuna who faints. Once she wakes up she resurrects him using fireflies or something.

I thought they had photo shopped Daniel Radcliffe's Twenty something year old face onto some kid for a second.

I am on Chapter 4 of Resonance of Fate. Finished the escort mission. Just need to do some of the guild quests before moving on. Game is great fun but boy does Leanne ever have a bad dose of the crazy eyes.
56  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Demon Gaze on: April 23, 2014, 11:35:07 AM
Kyle is not the right person to listen to if you're remotely interested in JRPGs.  His staff page shows some of his favorite RPGs being Planescape, Mass Effect, and Fallout, which is fine, but it's obvious he wasn't going to enjoy this (or Bravely Default for that matter).

I think that is a bit harsh man. Those are some of my favourite games and I also love JRPGs. People have different tastes and it is as important to hear those that dislike the game as it is those who like it. I was surprised Kyle reviewed this but more so because I had never seen him review a modern dungeon crawler before. Thought all the dungeon crawlers went to Ashton, Tooker or Hussey.

57  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Demon Gaze on: April 22, 2014, 07:31:52 PM
I was surprised by the review. I'm not that far in yet so I may not have come to all of Kyle's issues yet. The dungeon crawling aspect seems fine so far. Dungeons seem to look nice although I am only judging it by other dungeon crawlers. I can see how he can be bothered by the character designs but the voice acting seemed fine to me, pretty good even. I am guessing the fan service was what dragged the story score that low. Not a fan of fan service myself but I was surprised at the 10%. Especially since he said there were positives about the story behind the fan service.

The Persona knock off anime confused me though. I don't think I completely understand what he meant. I haven't heard much of the music so far but I don't think it has made me think about Persona. I could be horribly wrong about it though. I am horrible at spotting musical similarities.
58  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Demon Gaze on: April 22, 2014, 01:48:57 PM
Reviews are making me want this, but I have the first three Etrian Odysseys and have never made it past the second level in any of them. I'm terrible at making good characters/parties in these types of games, and I doubt this would be any different. Still tempting, though.

I've heard it isn't as hard as Etrian Odyssey and also has difficulty modes.

Edit: It is up on PSN if anyone is interested. You have to use search to find it though. Filesize is 463 MB.

Resonance of Fate

Thanks for all the tips. Didn't realise how useful Hero Charge was. It costs a Bezel to use so I made the mistake in thinking it wasn't that useful until you got more bezels to mess around with. Totally wrong.

I like the story so far. It really seems like the game was based off a bounty hunter slice of life anime with each chapter being an episode. The world itself is great. Hope they explain more about it.

Friend lent me Resonance of Fate and the Zone of the Enders HD collection.

Resonance of Fate kind of confuses me. I get the basics of the battle system but am completely out of my depth on the more advanced parts. My strategy so far has just been to use the machine gun first and follow it up with the handguns.
