Finally about to face the last boss in Tales of the Abyss.

Still wandering the dark caverns of Wizardry 6. Thinking of class changing soon enough although I will probably totally unbalance my party. Carry limit is becoming an issue causing me to have to get rid of a lot of items.

I saw the Dungeons and Dragons: Classic Anthology for sale. It has Baldurs Gate 1 & 2, Planescape Torment, Icewind Dale 1 & 2 and The Temple of Elemental Evil in it. I have been thinking of getting Planescape for a while now and the bundle seems good. Saw it on Amazon for $109 but considering you can get all six games individually on GOG for less than thirty, decided against it. Saw the bundle elsewhere for 15 and will probably get it there. I am interested in all of them bar The Temple of Elemental Evil which I had never heard of before.

Realised that I have been calling Planescape, Planetscape for years.

EDIT: Found This bundle instead which is much better

Just beat it on normal mode.

I knew the ending and all already...but damn it's powerful. I'm shocked they took the route they did.

You are finished it already? Is it a short game or just one that you do not want to stop playing?

It really is in the hands of the developer. Do they want to make a great RPG that will appeal to the real fans, or do they want to innovate and try to do something different? Or make it to try to appeal to the masses?

I think this is actually a pretty big problem. One example would  be Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter. I was among those BoF fans who hated the game for being so different to the rest of the series. It was only years later that I was truly able to appreciate the game. I always wondered if the game would have been better received if it did not have the BoF name hanging over it.

Out of the "big" developers that make rpgs, the only two I can think of that make truly unique rpgs most chances they get are STING and Idea Factory. Idea factory have a bad rep from earlier games but seem to be improving drastically with their latest games. You can hate them all you want but it is hard to say their gameplay is traditional.

I just saw Tangled for the first time. Really enjoyed it, certainly more than I was expecting. The mother also really gave me a GLaDOS vibe, which was awesome. I can't say I enjoyed the ending but overall it was a great movie.

Code:
I dont know, Rapunzel seemed to love the witch for most of the movie even though she was pretty sarcastic. The fact she didn't even seem bummed out that her "mother" of 18 years just died seemed off for some reason.

The movie has got me in the mood to watch Brave, another movie I have never seen before. From the ads that used to be on I don't think The princess and the Frog would be my cup of tea.

Get yer cracked copy of FF7, get yer cracked copy of FF7.

Only $10,000,000!

Unfortunately they are not selling it outside the US. Shame really, with that free postage and shipping, I would have snapped it up. You wouldn't believe what most people expect for postage.

I had great fun playing through the main series. The plot is all over the place but I still had a blast playing them. I only played Chain of Memories for the GBA but from what I remember it was pretty good, although pretty short. The second half was pretty cool too.

I thought Birth by Sleep was great and definitely my favourite among the non main titles. 358/2 was fun to play but the repetitive nature kind of dragged on a bit for me. I never really tried the multiplayer though. Have not had a chance to play re: Coded or Dream Drop Distance yet.

Only thing that I didn't really like about the games were certain optional places such as the 100 acre woods.

Still in the mines in Wizardry 6. The enemies have become easy enough to beat so I guess I have to move on elsewhere soon. Found a broken catapult thing which I guess I am supposed to repair somehow.

Finished a lot of DS games I had lately. Namely, the last boss in Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Final Fantasy 3 and Final Fantasy XII Revenant Wings. I always seem to just give up right at the last dungeon. Not because the area is hard but rather, the effort to beat it just is not there.

Although I prefer owning physical copies, I do agree with what Thoren has said. The idea that you can get a game without worrying if it is still in stock is great. It also means that certain games will not skyrocket in price. Hopefully a more digital content era will allow more niche games to be brought to the west or even be created here. Things appear to be progressing like that so far and will hopefully continue to do so.

My only worry would be as new consoles are created will the digital content on previous consoles still be able to be used or be unable to be played as the network is no longer submitted?

All I'm getting is the page about submitting a skit. No entries at all. And, yes, I've had the page liked for ages.

Did you click get started? I had trouble with an error message repeatedly showing up but once it stopped showing up, I got through by clicking the getting started button even though it made it sound as if it was just to submit your own skit.

Still chugging along at Wizardry VI. Not sure where to go at the moment. I think I prefer the castle to this area although the mines do have a giant wizard head that blocks my path. A troll tried to make me pay a toll  but I decided to decline. He promptly destroyed my party. Lesson learned.

Been toying with the idea of reinstalling Divine Divinity. I never finished the game although I loved every moment of it. From what I remember it was similar to Diablo but full of humour and in a more fleshed out world. It was also buggy as hell.

It was really warm today. Normally in Ireland this just means a mild day where it has not rained in a few hours but I actually ended up getting sunburned(Not a ginger)

Apparently I have a terrible habbit of answering questions with a question or saying "Ah, shur ye know yerself"(That was my attempt at recreating the accent rather than text speech). There were a few other things mentioned but I am pretty sure it is an Irish/maybe UK thing.

Probably my favourite advertisement video since can't say no to panda or Club Orange.

Wizardry VI - Beat the castle and am now in the mines. The castle was great fun and I really liked a lot of the
quests in it so far. My favourite has probably been outdrinking a pirate called Captain Matey.

I actually like that the rooms are described by text. I think if they had used graphics, the rooms would not have looked that nice but the text really makes you imagine what it looked like. Yay for the power of imagination.

I had a strategy that was going great against multiple enemy groups. My melee attacked the first group, my mage fireballed the second and my bard put the third to sleep. In the end the mage just destryed every enemy with his fireball. Love fireball <3. Now I am fighting Dwarves which appear to be magically resistant. Not cool, not cool at all.

Vic was kind enough to let me review a copy, and it's very enjoyable. Slow build, but once you get over the trademark initial hump, it's fun times, especially the combat's fluidity.

Some of these dungeons are brutal, too. My biggest complaint is the lack of dungeon music.

Is money as large an issue in this one? I remember in the first wandering around using starting equipment for a decent amount of time before I was able to afford/make anything.

Actually one thing I wouldn't mind knowing is if the race pictures fit their stats this time? I was more put off in the first one by the Erdgeist's monk like appearance not matching its magic like  stats than I should have been.

That said I did have a lot of fun playing the first game and will most likely buy the second at some point.
