I actually beat 3 dungeons since writing that. I have the Sand Rod and the Titan's Mitt (damnit...) now, so I'll be rocking this game.

Zelda 3DS - It took me forever to figure out which dungeon I should start with. I guess it really was the Swamp Palace, but I honestly thought I'd have, you know, choices. I didn't. The Swamp palace was the only one I could access without the Power Gloves (Giant's Gloves?). Which wouldn't be so bad, except I guess the Power/Giants? Gloves are in Death Mountain. Getting there was hell enough, but the place seems way too hard for me right now. Guess I'll try Thieve's Hideout next...I think I just need a password but I'm not too sure what that entails...

I should hope we do, but you never know with Sega...I certainly hope we do, it really does look nice.

I have a long, fast stride, too, but that's just how I've always walked. I don't do anything else for exercise.

You would not believe how much stuff I've done in A Link Between Worlds...and I've only beaten two dungeons so far. :P

I also loved the Orchestral music used in the Tales of Destiny and Symphonia openings. I like the Japanese songs well enough, but I feel the english songs actually went a lot better with the visuals, and work together to create a grand and adventurous atmosphere that the pop songs could never match.

I'm waiting for a review...to tell me how many bugs there are so I can play the copy I just bought this evening.

...actually, this is the first Full-priced game I've gotten on Steam ever. I'm sure it'll be worth it.

Still being scatterbrained and playing too many games. Now I picked up LoZ: A Link Between Worlds, and it's everything I could've asked for. Seriously, this is the Zelda I wanted to play since I was a kid.

i've come to understand that i have an inner dominatrix and its ok if not everyone likes me. in other news i have 2 girlfriends now and they are both totally ok with it. though they like to think of themselves more as my pets. they have both helped me accept the dom within.
This is going to be awkward...

I like it for one simple reason. It looks like it focuses on the characters, not on OMG FALCLIE MELODRAMA RAGNAORPHANCRADLEPRAETORIUS MANAVIN GOD REBIRTH WORLD LIGHTINGIUNGU.

Seriously, though. Think about how much humanity has been missing from FF casts in the XIII titles. The concept render for this game has them GRILLING, ffs. That's something people do. If nothing else, realize that this game has a tone and a thematic and is now actually FOCUSED on something. I couldn't be happier with that trailer. Also, look at early-game KH2 combat compared to late-game. It's like night and day, and I'd be shocked if this weren't similar.



Oh man, I've been getting the same impression, man. I love the character focus. I'm hoping the combat does get crazier like it did in KH2 as well, though I kinda actually like the...deliberate movements. Even if it makes it feel clunky, I'd appreciate the idea that my weapons have weight so I'd need to make the most of my movements. Kinda like how Monster Hunter works. It just makes the game feel visceral.

Played more Dragon Quest 8 this morning, only to get distracted and spent way too much time with a F2P MOBA on the iPad in the evening. I have to say, I'm really liking Fates Forever. It feels just as good as League, but offers bots so new people like me have something to practice on. And the bots aren't half bad, either. Not great - I'm convinced they just buy basic armor and never upgrade, if they buy any items at all. But still, they do enough to keep things flowing. I played the game for 3 straight hours and only stopped because my battery was getting low. My only complaint is that it obviously doesn't offer as much content as League, instead hiding most of the characters behind a paywall. You can buy them with in-game money, though, and they offer sales every week. They only have a little over a dozen characters right now, so if you keep playing, it won't take long to unlock everyone, especially since they offer daily challenges to help things along. If anything, it forces people to learn their characters before moving on to someone else.

^Hilarious either way!

And yeah, that demo announcement means I might have to get the PS4 for my birthday in March...I'll be paying for most of it, of course.

FYI, Battleborn is MOBA FPS. However Gearbox is not gonna call it like that because of marketing and PR reasons.

Think of how Bungie calls Destiny a "Shared-World Shooter" but you can totally call it a MMO FPS and feel good about yourself because both mean the same thing anyway.

So long as it has a campaign/non-competitive mode, it can MOBA it up all it wants. MOBA's are fun, it's just the overcompetitive jackasses that aren't.

I just want to throw in my two cents and say that I love this site as well. I really wish I posted here more, but the articles and reviews are always a great read. Taelus' Theatrythm review, for example, was especially interesting to read. I really liked how he gave some examples of how Final Fantasy left an impact him. For a game that's riding heavily on nostalgia, that actually really helped me to get a sense for how much he enjoyed the game. I actually don't have much nostalgia for the Final Fantasy series, but I can definitely relate to a lot of those scenes described in the review, albeit with other games.

I especially love the community, though. I know I don't talk enough here, but I love seeing all the discussions people have. There are a lot of intelligent users here, and most of the time people tend to get along well enough. Seems like a lot of people have fun here, too. I don't wanna gush, but I can honestly say this is the best community I've been to, and has been at least since I joined in 2010.

Actually I did miss that news apparently. I am totally guilty of skimming gaming news sites and missing a ton. In truth the only things I really check out thoroughly are the forums here and some weird nutritional/medical sites. Forgive my ignorance/naivety on the PS TV. The fact remains, I am still very excited :)

Ok. Gotta tell on myself. I also have a horrible guilty pleasure of checking the mass of idiocy that gets posted on various Reddits as well.

Oh hey, speaking of which, I apparently missed that Gearbox is making a new game called Battleborn. It's another co-op shooter like Borderlands, but more eccentric and colorful, which is good in my eyes. I guess the competitive mode is more like a MOBA or something, too.  Also it's very pretty.
