I really wish I could help ya, but I haven't seen half the shows that you've seen (and am writing them down for future reference) and nearly all of the good shows I can think of you've already seen. Only one I got is that someone recently introduced me to Gokudo, which is supposed to be like Slayers and Rune Soldier.  I haven't given it a shot yet, but I figure you'd appreciate something like that more than I would anyways.

I might be able to help you with these three, though, if only just a little:
I'm currently considering "The Familiar of Zero F", "Ragnarok the animation" or "Fairy Tail"....... so any experience with any of those three would be welcome....

The only thing I know about The Familiar of Zero is that it starts out okay and then gets gradually worse as it goes on. I gave up after the first season. I recently read a review of TFoZF, actually, and it sounds like it's no different except it ends surprisingly on a high note, so if you've been watching it for 3 seasons now, it might be worth it to finish it off, if only to see that ending.

I watched 1 episode of Ragnarok, and it was...okay, I guess.  I don't remember anything standing out as exceptionally good or bad.

Fairy Tail is probably the best of the 3, but I'm not so sure it's what you're looking for. It's more shounen like Naruto or One Piece. If you don't mind that, go ahead, you'll be in for one heck of a (long) ride.

I like the art. :/

The only Growlanser game I've played before is Growlanser V and I actually enjoyed that, both on a gameplay level and due to the fact that it's one of the very few SRPGs where I actually cared about the story and characters. Everyone says this one is miles better, so I'm not worried in the slightest.

Wow, glad to see this is getting some attention. I'll most likely pre-order it some time this week, now that I can finally afford to spend some cash.

Also -- I fucking hate playing Mario as a virtual obstacle course (some Sunshine levels drove me fucking crazy for that).

Hated that too. Just played Super Mario Sunshine recently but got stuck on one of those "obstacle course" stages. I got far enough through it to see that rest of the stage would be a complete pain in the rear. I recall running into similar problems in Galaxy, of course. It may be a while before I can get up the courage to attempt that stage again...

The fifth chapter is longer than the first four put together.  It's the real meat of the game.  I always liked DQ IV; I hope you enjoy the remainder.

Aw, this is the last chapter? I was kinda hoping I'd do this chapter then save the last chapter for another time. I'm not ready to stop, though, so I guess I'll have to play through this chapter as far as I can go.

I actually really like the .hack series, but I'm not about to suggest anyone spend hundreds of dollars trying to get the whole set unless you already know you'll like it enough to be worth your investment. I just really like the universe and little touches to the game, as well as the general gameplay, enough to overlook the fact that's basically one overly long game, but I knew I'd like it as soon I read the description...

Been playing Dragon Quest IV DS for the Past few days. Currently on Chapter 4. Capter 3 was great, and makes up for the last two chapters being mediocre. If it can stay this good, this might be the first Dragon Quest game I actually enjoyed.

Well, chapter 4 at least was still good. Not as good as 3, but still pretty good. We'll see if the next chapter still holds up.

Re: Gundam AGE. I've been keeping up with it, but it's pretty tepid. It hasn't really done anything to specifically piss me off, it's just playing it so...safe. The animation is certainly pretty though, which is half the reason I watch anime anyway.

I liked the second and third arcs (so far) way more than the first one, if that helps.

Yeah, safe is my general impression so far. I'll probably give it another go (the dice have been repeatedly telling me to watch it), I just gotta try to adjust my expectations some more.

I didn't mean to imply that you should've known it was bad. It was just meant to be more of a comment that I'm not surprised to see it didn't live up to expectations. I guess I still have my old habit of twisting everything I say so I end up sounding like total jerk. =P
1061  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: XSEED bringing Ys: Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin to Steam on: July 14, 2012, 09:47:16 PM
Yup, gamepads work on the game. Just plug it in and you're good to go. At least, that's how mine is.

Just as a reminder, if you're using a 360 controller, make sure you're using a wired one. I just got Ys Origin, and I'll personally be using my PS3 controller, which I'm pretty sure is just plug in and play.

There is seriously not a single redeeming quality to this show.

Not to sound like a dick or anything, but that's more or less the impression I got from reading the description on Crunchyroll...

Anyways, I'm starting to get board of Pretty Cure - Monster of the Week shows can only hold my attention for so long - so I decided to go back to Gundam AGE...but I don't think I'll be continuing it after all. I finished the first arc, and it's still pretty disappointing. I'll probably just end up going back to Pretty Cure tomorrow. I'm only 11 episodes in. Might want to watch some more before I call it quits.
1063  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Backlog Thread on: July 14, 2012, 06:49:08 PM
I use Backloggery, too. I have approximately 800 games that are unfinished. I'd guesimate that at least a quarter of them are RPGs. I have a very long way to go...

Watched the first episode of Sword Arts Online.  Was alright.  Probably will check out the other episodes as they come.

Is the recent release of Hunter x Hunter any good?  Is it the same thing as the old Hunter x Hunter?  I was always kind of curious about it, but never saw it.

Anyone know?

I stopped watching around episode 19, but that's because I've been waiting for it to get sufficiently ahead so I can marathon it the next time I get the urge to watch it. So far...it's been good, but don't expect a lot of action. I haven't seen the original anime, but it's supposed to be even slower paced than the new one, which has already had as few as 3 fight scenes for nearly 20 episodes. It spend a lot of time developing its characters and world, which I find very interesting. It also has a lot of creative solutions to problems, and doesn't settle everything with violence. For a shonen show, I find it highly commendable, provided you keep your expectations in check.

I've taken a break from Dougram (which has been consistantly awesome for 25 eisodes) since I read a major spoiler that I now need to forget. Now I'm watching Pretty Cure, and so far it's been ...impressively tame for a magical girl show. Very little fanservice and the girls aren't overly cute or anything, and their tastes in boys are a little closer to their age. I really like the characters so far, though I wish the purple haired girl got some more development, but I guess that'll be the next episode. With that said, the action scenes so far have been horrible in virtually every way possible. It's like their from a low budget tokusatsu film or something. The first episode was especially terrible. Also, it doesn't look like it'll have much of a story. I'll keep watching, but don't be surprised if I get bored of it halfway through...

EDIT: Episode 4 of Pretty Cure was surprisingly awesome - even the action was good! Seriously, only problem is they solved the one mystery this show had, and it was kinda disappointing. The next one also looks like it could be interesting. Could this mean the show is actually picking up and could turn out better than I thought? Either way, I'm now going in with renewed enthusiasm.
