Well...what did you expect? Them to release a physical version of a game on a dead platform that you can't even buy in stores anymore and won't work with the new Vita?

A Vita version?

They can do one for Ys IV but not TiTS 2?

...Yes. Because Ys IV was what, 15 years old? And they didn't really do one before, so they had an excuse. Unless you meant to mention the Vita version of Trails of Zero/Blue, but those were more recent and hadn't been played to death by the fans, though judging by how long they take and how the Vita has been doing, I'd assume Falcom isn't too happy about their decision to even do those.

Didn't Xseed say they were looking into a digital PSP (and therefore Vita) release of TitS 2?

Apparently it's already confirmed.

And Twilight was a romance novel so your analogy made no sense...

With vampires and werewolves.

I take it this is also horror:

Tales series? Frustrating? Are we even playing the same games? I can't remember that last time I was ever frustrated in a Tales game, either with its battle system, or a part of the game that wasn't an optional boss, and I'm not all that good at games. Maybe the first hour of Xillia, because I had come immediately off of Graces f and expect the same battle system only to get something completely different? That one Early boss in Vesperia that took me 3 or 4 tries to beat because I skipped a few battles along the way? Other than those instances, Tales games have been pretty easy, so long as you know what you're doing instead of just mashing the buttons, and fight every enemy you encounter so you're the appropriate level. Maybe I'll still die a few times at bosses, but I expect that and don't really get frustrated by it.

And I don't really agree with the dialogue part. That's purely preference, but half the reason I play Tales games is just to read the dialogue and see the interactions between the characters. It goes a long way in making the games a fun, memorable ride, at least for me. Though I seem to pay more attention to dialogue than I've seen others do, so take that for what you will.

I'd equate Tales more to the Call of Duty series - It doesn't change as much as other popular games in the genre, it uses tons of visual tropes in its story (albeit Japanese anime tropes instead of american block busters tropes), and it releases pretty regularly.

Granted, I like Tales games and I used to like Call of Duty when I played FPSes, so I don't really think its that big a problem.

And Twilight was a romance novel so your analogy made no sense...

I'm personally just happy that I can finally complete the Suikoden series without forking over an arm and a leg. Unless Tierkris is canon...

Been playing Soul Blazer because all the cool kids are talking about it. I powered through the first 3 areas now. I guess I'm almost halfway through now? Anyways, hoping I'll get thist done before wednesday.

I'm still chomping at the bit for Terranigma, Soul Blazers, and Illusion of Gaia to come to VC. I played a couple hours of each on emulators, and they were fantastic. If they don't come eventually, I may have to give in a buy an SNES...or beat them on emu...either one would be a huge accomplishment for me...

SMT - After getting some really good equipment, demons, and experience, getting through the Police Station was a walk in the park. And now I can get a few more demons, so yay more fusing! Oh yeah, and I should probably finish exploring Ginza and figure out where to go next, too.

Some news for any mechheads here: A new J9 series is in the works. Not much info right now though, but I'll give it a chance when it comes along.

Just thought I'd point this little quote out:

Quote
Yamamoto also stated that one of the goals of the project is to revive the "original anime" in an age where it's more common to base anime off of manga, which is bad for anime scriptwriters. For this reason, he has started a "Practice Anime School" to train several new talents for the next generation of anime scriptwriters, using Ginga Jinpū Jinraiger as the teaching material.

Now that is ambitious. Or stupidly pretentious...I'm not sure which. It's a good goal nonetheless so either way, I'm hoping for the best.

I really have developed some kind of gaming ADD. Last night I started Rogue Galaxy over for the fourth time. For some reason I always get to the part where you return to Rosa right after the mines and then just never go back to it.

At least you get past that Mines part...I like that game, but it really drags by the time you get to the mines...

^Do you have Banjo-Kazooie/Tooie on any other platform? Because if not I'd highly recommend those. Shadow Complex also comes highly recommended.

Anyways, finally found Shibuya. Delved into the Messiah girl's mind and now she's traveling with me. Now I'm exploring Roppongi.

Have both Banjo games on my N64, which I actually still have hooked up. Haven't considered Shadow Complex in a while, certainly an option, though I've heard it's pretty short and not very challenging.

It's challenging on hard mode, at least. I dunno, I never played it on Normal.

EDIT: Made it through Roppongi in SMT. That was kinda boring since there were hardly any demons. Though I did find one guy who leveled me up 10 times. I think it was a bonus boss. Either way, it was really helpful. Now I'm off to the Police station, according to my disembodied friend.

I'm now 17 hours into Shin Megami Tensei on iPad. At least 3 of those hours have been spent wandering the wastelands trying to find Shinbuya...I'm through with Shinjuku, and someone said it was northwest, but there's nothing there...or northeast, or southeast, and the demons are way stronger in the southwest. Like, I leveled up 3 levels when I beat two of them. At the very least I'm level 33 now, and I got some good demons, but it's getting really annoying not knowing where to go...
