I'm in the middle of chapter 2 and haven't felt that way at all, Aeolus.  I've just been playing normally and haven't lost a single battle.  The game seems pretty easy, really.  I haven't felt the need to do anything to 'break' it.  I tend to keep my S-Breaks in reserve but then end up not using them at all.  I did run from one fight early on but it was a monster-in-a-box that I wasn't expecting and clearly wasn't prepared for.

And the game seems to actively discourage grinding since if your level gets too high for the enemies you're fighting they barely give you any rewards.

Yeah the game is pretty easy.  I got game over twice but it was just some bad luck/simple mistakes both times.  I like that running from battles actually works in this game.  Not like some games >_>

I will say though that the last area is pretty annoying and the chest monsters there take way too long to kill (and there are like 17million of them).  I seriously think that is my least favorite part of the game.  It's such a generic ass dungeon and the battle theme there isn't as good as the normal one either.

After years of not watching anything new I started watching Darker Than Black.

Pretty decent.

Darker than Black is cool.  Season 2 not so much...

I just finished watching Shiki and I thought it was really good.  For those who don't know, it's about vampires killing people in a small japanese town and the people trying to figure out what's causing all the deaths.  I was totally expecting it to have some retarded ending when I was about halfway through but I was pleasantly surprised.

Nope, just like the music industry here, the actual author makes nearly nothing. Worst, they don't get money for concert or publicity.
That's why you've never really heard of a stinking rich manga artist.

Well if their series are popular and they get anime and other merchandise  they can wind up quite wealthy.  I'm sure Akira Toriyama is pretty loaded, as is that uh...Rumiko Takahashi (might have wrong name) who did Inuyasha/ranma/etc stuff.

I've only read the manga.  My brother tells me the anime is very good though.

It's mostly psychological/comedy/depressing.  Kinda dark humor I guess.  It's depressing but its not constant there's still some hope and stuff, its kinda up and down in that way.  

I think Thoren on this site has an avatar from it

Hexyz Force is good though I think there are better games you could download.  Haven't played Crimson Gem Saga.  

Depending what kinda game you want I'd recommend Gurumin, Half Minute Hero, Ys Seven, and ZHP for downloadable PSP games.  Not sure on prices but Gurumin at least should be $15 or under.

then a bunch of stuff happens all at once but none of that matters any more because "IRIS! WHAT AM I FIGHTING FOOOOOOOORRRRR!!!!!",


and yeah I agree with Annubis it gets better in the 2nd half or so of season 2.

Every time I've tried to play Yggdra Union I've gotten bored with it. The battle system makes utterly no sense to me and any rpg that uses a card system generally turns me off. I still intend to finish it someday. I've got Knights in the Nightmare too but haven't started it. I don't really get the whole Dept. Heaven thing; are these games just standalone with loose connection (as in cameos and etc.) or are they actually leading up to something big story-wise? Are the other Union games just spin-offs of Yggdra Union or are they "episodes" in the series as well?

Wikipedia seems to think Dept Heaven games are unconnected story-wise, but Union games are spinoffs/sequels/prequels of Yggdra Union and not main episodes.
Supposedly, those "episodes" are numbered based on  battle system complexity with Riviera being first.

The Dept. Heaven games are loosely connected storywise but they ARE connected.  They all share the same universe and certain characters are present in more than one game in story related ways (not just cameos).  My impression is that Yggdra Union happens first, followed by Kights in the Nightamare, followed by Riviera.  Blaze Union and Gloria Union are spinoff games and are not part of the Dept. Heaven series.

*spoiler warning for Geass R2*

Code Geass R2 is not nearly as good as season 1 but it still has some very cool parts.  It's just so unnecessarily confusing compared to season 1.  I can't count the number of times I was like "huh what?" at something going on and never getting any resolution.  Like when chigusawa (the dark skinned chick?) and the ninja maid and that curly hair rebel guy were in the forest and she's like "I'll kill you!" and im like what is going on here?!!!!!!!!!!  Speaking of the ninja maid....how stupid a plot device is it to have her be able to disguise herself as lelouch perfectly?  it's hard to be lamer than that.  Also a certain character death was incredibly pointless and added needless drama when we already had something similar happen but done much better in season 1.  yeah.

Well Blaze Union never came out here so I don't think this will either.  As long Atlus brings Gungnir over everything is good...

I'm guessing you aren't a fan of Guilty Gear/Blazblue music either if you don't like the music in this game.  I think it's excellent.

It's not homophobia, it's bad character design.

It really is.
329  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Hard Corps: Uprising on: March 20, 2011, 12:58:58 AM
This game is like woah.  Any fan of 2D action games is really missing out if they don't get this. 
330  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Hard Corps: Uprising on: March 19, 2011, 12:57:46 AM
I got the game and it is addictive and hard.
