I'm more worried about Sega's recent decision to focus on PC games. I don't want the next SMT game to be PC-only. :/

EDIT: Heh, guess I spoke too soon. Hopefully this really does mean business as usual.

I've never been one to judge a guy by his cover, so I'll wait until I see how he handles in the game before I start deciding if I like him or not. And even if I don't, I've learned how to enjoy a story even if I don't care for the main character. And even if I don't like the story, that won't stop me from enjoying the game if it has good gameplay - which is really my biggest worry here. Sure it looks impressive, but so did FFXIII's gameplay in the trailers, and that got very repetitive very quickly and wasn't very interactive. I trust that the creator of Kingdom Hearts knows how to make a fun battle system, but still, I won't know until it comes out, so I'll always be a little cautious.

Since Agito is free, I'll probably give it a go, but I'll probably hate myself for it...

Is it wrong that I feel like they should be earning more than they already have by now?I seriously thought they'd have no trouble reaching the 3 million mark, but now I'm not sure. Would be really nice if they at least get the online co-op mode in there by the end.

inb4, It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

Oh the nostalgia!

I don't really celebrate Halloween anymore, but you're really tempting me to try some weird/semi-scary anime a try this October.

Thanks for the link!

You know, I was going to go on about how much good Victory Gundam is, which I've been watching lately and its been doing a lot of things really right, but then I saw a late-series clip that reminded me how frustrating it could be, too. To put it simply, this show gets really weird sometimes, especially in the later half. Also, Tomino seriously needs to learn how to add some subtlety to his dialogue...

I really need to stop going for the Battle Masteries in Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation. They make the game way too hard. Especially when it sets the game to hard mode. I'm on Mission 18 and I could not figure out how to sink the Kurogane in less than 7 turns. Maybe I should upgrade my pilots...I don't think I've done that even once yet...
1073  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should I play Persona 1 on PS1 or PSP? on: September 14, 2013, 01:11:33 PM
Well, one of the main reasons I wanted to play Persona 1 is because I want to get to Persona 2. I heard the story was kinda connected and they had recurring characters. Looking at the screenshots though the dungeon crawling doesn't look that fun. Maybe I should skip to P2 but I don't want to miss anything story wise.

I played P2 before P1. In fact, Innocent Sin was my first SMT game. I don't recall the connection being so strong that I felt like I was missing something by playing one before the other. I can't find anything even talking about the connections between the two games...

does anyone have this game? I got it from a friend, managed to solo up to stage 50 something and now I'm getting two shot by mooks. If anyone has the game I would really like to play multiplayer.

Do you have it for the PS3 or Vita? I was going to buy it once the Vita version dropped in price a little.
1075  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: September 14, 2013, 12:46:45 PM
Since Dark Horse is reprinting those rare Berserk mangas, I just preordered the 15 volumes that I'm missing,lol.

What?! Sweet! I only have volumes 2-4. Might grab at least 14-21 when I can.
1076  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should I play Persona 1 on PS1 or PSP? on: September 13, 2013, 06:01:33 PM
This might be an unpopular opinion, but I think that Persona 1 is terrible and nobody should play it.  I have tried both versions, the PSP version more than once - I bought it thinking that just the PS1 port was bad, and I was wrong.  The Persona 2 duology is so much of an improvement that it's stunning.  Persona 1 is awful, the next five are excellent.  Woo, comma splices. 

I actually agree with you. It's pretty much the only SMT game I don't like, and it's the only game stalling the Shin Megami Tensei marathon I've been itching to do...

I mean, I guess it has a decent story, but the dialogue feels rather poorly written in both versions. I think the PSP version's a little better in that regard, but not by enough and the characters thus far have been forgettable. The combat is just confusing and the PSP version's encounter rate is too high. The graphics haven't aged well, and I'm not a fan of the PSP version's music. I just find it very painful to play.

That said, Persona 2: Innocent Sin is great, and probably my favorite in the Persona sub-series. Graphics aside, it seems to fix nearly every issue I had with Persona 1.

...isn't the real ending for Asura's Wrath in the DLC, or was said DLC an epilogue people kept calling "the REAL ending"?
1078  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F on: September 11, 2013, 08:07:04 PM
I gotta say, this game is fun, but I really can't stand Miku's voice. Everyone else is fine, but Miku's sounds way too artificial and it drives me crazy.

You take that back!

I'll admit that one was the best I've heard out of her, but it's still grating at points. I'm not just talking about the games either, I've listened to quite a bit of Vocaloid music, and I never seem to like Miku's voice in any of them.

The Weekender Girl is the song that features her in the demo, btw. (Coincidentally, I did that one last, and still did the worst out of any of the songs...) The other two sound great, though.

I wrote this in my review, but I think KH3DS' worlds were the worst in the series. Visually, they looked great, but they were basically big empty boxes for you to use flowmotion. I sincerely hope that system does not return again. It was just TOO much. Bring back command fusion from BbS!

I think, more than anything else, what KH3 needs is some elaborate and more interesting worlds-- and MORE EMPHASIS ON DONALD AND GOOFY AGAIN

Hear hear!

Thirded on all points.

FUUUUUUUUU-

  • Provided photons have no effect on the planet, “Photon Arts” cannot be used
  • Technics also cannot be used
  • “Something” will replace photons; details will be provided in a follow-up report

Well at least they're making an excuse inserting Star Ocean's magic system...

Quote
  • Planet Machia is home to the super giant “Gigantes” enemies
  • Weapons cannot be obtained through item drops
  • By procuring “raw materials” on Planet Machia, the player can create weapons

Great, just what this game needed, Monster Hunter elements. -_-

...sorry, but I'm getting really worried about this game now...
