Sometimes I hate shopping for RPGs since they are often overpriced or out of stock.And I doubt anyone here will give up those games because they know how valuable they are.

Your best bet for rare stuff is to make gamer friends that trust you enough to lend you their precious.

No, I keep them just so I can look at them and go What was I thinking buying THAT.
Self torture at its best.

Oh yeah, that was funny how in the original serie they went past the manga and completely made up a cardboard villain and ended the serie in a spiral of shit.
Wait, that's not funny, that's sad =/

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai ended exactly how it should; a giant tear jerker episode.

Yup, you're about to get to the worst moment of the game.

I did, and actually, back then, my room was on the main floor =/

It's a mix of immediate surroundings and people met through MMOs (hundred or so people). If this is all anecdotal, as you say, would that mean I know tons of losers (myself included in a couple of years -_-U) ?
Also, for reference, I'm looking at the 30-40 age group.

I matured perfectly well, thank you very much. >.>

No personal insult meant to anyone (if there is even one to begin with). Just an observation from the wide variety of people I know.
If you look at the usual steps in life (highly debatable I know): leave home, have kids and buy a house; I can't help but notice that the group of people that play video games are lagging behind the others. Most people are at the age where they now have one or two kids and are starting to consider buying a house, yet the video gamers have no children nor house. Worst, some amongst them are still living with their parents actually.
This makes me question: why the correlation. I mean, I'm not too found of the gamers = losers argument.
Maybe my 'test group' is too small or non-representative. Have you observed different results (if so I'd be interested to hear about it)

P.S. I'm not saying that everyone should follow the 'usual life model', everyone has the right to be different and to do whatever they want.

To me Tales games have always been at the very least 'good' games. If I have the system to play it, I will buy it. They are worth the money they cost.
Why their sales are always terrible puzzles me every single time (especially considering that Square hasn't done anything great for a while and still sells games by the million)

Here's a question I've been pondering on for a while. When I think about my hobby, I'm thinking: "I really want that game next year." "We'll probably get Diablo 3 after 3 or 4 years of development." "14 years in the future I might buy DNF." (ok, that last one is more of a joke)
Point of the matter, we are easily used to waiting years for what we want. Those are very lengthy awaiting which I'm not sure many domains or hobbies match.

Now, taking the above and making a parallel with the social myth (?) that gamers are 'eternal kids', makes me consider the question: do we mature slower since our perception of time is warped?

graf_chokolo, another akin to George Hotz, probably going to jail.
I think the rage against Sony is about to be refueled if that happens.

Even so, it's never fun to have an inferior version of a game. Wouldn't you agree?

How many versions of Resident Evil 4 do you have?

0

Anyway, people talking about the 360 being the "beta" version are full of shit, anyway. I played the PS3 version and aside from a useless gimmick character and some stuffed in lines that hamfisted her into the story, it was clear that it was just "Oh, here's some extra crap for getting leftovers." It was all really just DLC level stuff. The 360 version is just fine.

Even so, it's never fun to have an inferior version of a game. Wouldn't you agree?
3239  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Freakin' Hard Boss!!! on: June 22, 2011, 12:16:14 AM
I'm trying to think which boss gave me the most trouble and I think it would be the final boss of Breath of Fire 2 =/
I've had some though bosses but usually there's a trick to make them easier, like for example the wind/charm boss in P3 which gets destroyed if you farm Narcissus' heart item. BoF2 though... I'm not sure if there's any way of making him any less strong.

Also, DQ3 last boss... but all NES jRPGs were almost impossible to finish.
