Bah, I just remembered that I can easily transfer a PS3 Diablo 3 account to the PS4 version, so I'm going to get the PS3 version now, and then buy the PS4 version years from now and transfer stuff.

I have never heard a single song from her apparently, not even on the radio or whatnot. Looked up a bunch of songs, none of them rang a bell. Kinda glad, though, her stuff doesn't seem to be my style - not bad perse, but her songs aren't that interesting.

HOWEVER!!! Whoever was hired to do her music videos deserves a raise. A lot were so interesting I forgot it was a music video. "Trouble's Lament" (from her latest album, apparently) in particular was so good, I honestly thought I was watching a complex spy movie for a while. Hell, I wish Jame's Bond' (or equivelants') stunts were half as engrossing. Maybe it's because there weren't any relevant words to go off of, so it was like watching the old Pink Panther shorts where you have to pay close attention to figure out what they're trying to do. (Those were awesome, btw) I might check some more songs out for the videos. Thanks for bringing her up, at least.

Also, people were absolutely tired of the PS3 and wanted something new and Shiny, so Sony put out a shiny box and promised lots of shiny new games. So people bought it droves, despite most of the shiny new games Sony promised turning out to be older games with the dust blown off.

Recently slogged through almost 100 hours of FFXII.  That game somehow managed to be a fat giant turd and impossibly addictive at the same time.  Then I went on a Ys spending spree.  Just finished I and II and have just started Oath of Felghana. 

Does anyone here also keep a journal of the games they've completed?  I like to use "Howlongtobeat.com because it works a lot like GoodReads in that respect.  My backlog is RIDICULOUS though.

I obviously use the backloggery. It's easy to use, but only if you keep up with it since you have to add stuff one game at a time. Obviously I'm not very good with that...

is a better/more entertaining game than PD Saga. Yup, deal with it.

I haven't played Panzer Dragoon Saga, and probably never will, legally at least, but I'm pretty sure it's not a rail shooter. That's like saying Paper Mario is a more fun and engaging game than Mario Kart - One's a rose garden, the other is shit in a basket, obviously those can't be compared. Also, genre biases.

Dude, I've seen Grandmothers play Multiplayer with eachother on their 3DSes in Barnes & Noble. I don't think you're too old to be playing handhelds out in public. :P

I will agree that the PS4 looks pretty barren right now, but it'll improve. It has to. 10 million people bought that freakin' thing in less than 6 months. Publishers aren't exactly gonna just look the other way, ya dig?

They'll carry over if you had a save from the original, but they won't be present for everyone else to get, apparently: http://diablo.somepage.com/blue/13181878163-d3-uee-information-station-read-me

Reminds me of that controversy 5 years ago with Joe Satriani and Coldplay.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eb49QuPLuHg


I demand a copy of those two songs mixed together. Seriously, they actually mix fantastically. It's like each song is only using half the instruments.

I actually got rediculously close to completing Minish Cap 100%. Like, One Heartpiece away, I think, plus the Final boss (which I could never beat. That final form really is a pain in the butt. In fact, what Zeldas besides the Oracle games had a good final boss? Wind Waker?). Not even sure how I got that far...

So, Reaper of Souls is out now. Anyone know if its easy enough to turn off/ignore the extra social features the PS4 version comes with? Because I really don't like the sound of those. To the point where I might just go with the PS3 version just so I can avoid them entirely, no patch support be damned.

Also, does having more enemies on-screen make it harder? I don't remember anyone complaining about the amount of enemies in the PS3 vanilla version...

So I was trying to list things in my head of the next few things I gotta do, but when I tried to talk them out, this was what came out:

"Okay, so now I gotta take off my pants...."

I believe I was trying to say "I gotta put the dog away". I don't think those who things are related. In fact, I don't think it was even on the list of things to do at all.

This is why I don't talk to people. My mouth has a mind of its own.

I'm with kkhohoho (was so close to spelling that right without looking) to an extent. Your problems are still very valid. I for one put pacing very high on my priority list, and I'm glad you brought that up. However...maybe it's because I have ADD, but I actually like that its got a lot of side stuff and whatnot, because I'm mostly in it for the character interactions and the gameplay. Story in an RPG has always been secondary to me. So long as the story isn't terrible, I'll live with it. To be quite honest, I can't remember the last not-SMT RPG I've played that I felt was actually well-written storywise, and not just "good for a JRPG", if that.

Lots of empty space does sound annoying, though...

Remember, Remember, the First of September.

14  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Trails in the Sky FC PC release July 29th on: August 19, 2014, 05:51:29 PM
^Okay, I might have to consider this now. That was kinda the patch I was waiting for.
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs that All Children Should Play on: August 19, 2014, 05:49:06 PM
Magical Starsign?

Maybe if they want to be bored to death. :P (seriously, even ignoring the cliches, IIRC, the game in general was pretty poorly paced and the story felt pretty fluffy too often. Though I suppose a kid might enjoy it more)

I would vote against that too.  Sure it's cute and cartoony, but I agree that it's pretty boring and generic.  I would easily recommend Solatorobo: Red the Hunter over it any day.  Now that game was fun to play, had great cartoony style, and a solid storyline.  Good game. 

Definitely agree on all counts. Plus it's pretty easy while still being engaging. I definitely could see kids really digging it, especially since a manchild like me loved it. =P
