Suikoden's gameplay/battle systems leave something to be desired, pretty basic stuff (I remember just auto-battling all through Suikoden 5 because there was no need for any strategy at all, way too easy). Building your castle/army though and watching it develop from nothing to something huge is where the fun is at.


As for what I'm playing, Disgaea PSP. I think I'm at the final battle... the boss is like LV 90 and all my peeps are under LV65... guess I should grind? I feel like I'm not playing this game how it should be played though (finding ways to level up fast, and I haven't even touched transmigration). I'm gonna mess around more with the Item World, I didn't do much of that throughout the game. Whatevs.

I don't even know what transmigration is, but Item worlds are fairly important. It's helpful for grinding, they improve your weapons, and they're pretty fun on their own.

I thought Dragon Quest IX was pretty good. Worth finishing at least.

Anyways, now that my Pokemon obsession has died down, I got an NES and played some Dragon Warrior for a while, and intend to finish it up on the weekend, but until then I'm trying to find something else to play. I tried playing Skyward Sword, but I seem to like that game less every time I go back to it. And I didn't like it that much in the first place...

Now I'm down to playing Muramasa Rebirth, Xenoblade Chronicles, Ni no Kuni, or Skies of Arcadia Legends. Anyone have any suggestions? I should probably mention that the only reason I'm not jumping straight into Xenoblade is because I'm really confused as to what to do or where to go, and I'm really tempted to start over, but I hate doing that...

There's a fan translation of Madan no Ou to Vanadis, Mickeymac.  Probably not supposed to link to that sort of thing here but if you just google the title I'm sure you can find it.  In fact I think it's the first hit...

Hah, it's even the site that guy uses all the time. Maybe he's already heard of it? Anyways, thanks. And thanks for giving us the heads up on the anime version, I don't recall hearing about it from my usual sources.

EDIT: Wow, he apparently posted about it just yesterday. XD He loves it, even the fanservice scenes. In fact, he said they're some of his favorite fanservice scenes, referencing the bath scenes specifically. :P Just thought I'd mention that. Guess its got two solid recommendations now, so now I'm really looking forward to it.

I watched the first 10 episodes of Brave of Gold Goldran, and now I'm out of episodes to watch on Youtube, and I don't feel like looking for the rest. Not because it wasn't enjoyable or anything like that (I loved it), but because the series isn't fully translated, so it'd be difficult to find. Anyways, I was going to watch Yamato 2199, but Goldran put me in the mood for a comedy adventure, where they frequently change locations and whatnot to keep things fresh while still being lighthearted. Anybody know an Anime like that?

@Kevuda

I wonder if there's an english translation of any of those books. Reason being that I know someone on another forum who loves Light Novels. I figure it'd be something he'd like, too, fanservice and all. In the meantime, I'm gonna wait for the anime version and hope for the best. It sounds really interesting. I've been waiting a serious show with some light fantasy elements for a long time, but those seem to be hard to come by.

And speaking of Anime versions, I'm still waiting for a World Trigger anime. :(

I have a love-hate relationship with Platformers, too - I love them, but they hate me. =P

Seriously, I think platformers may be my worst genre. I'm lucky if I can make it through the 2nd world in a lot of these games before I'm dying a zillion times at every level...yet somehow I still like them when I play them. I recently played Gargoyle's Quest, and had a pretty good time with it. I even cheered when I finally beat the very first level after the zillionth try. I have yet to even find the second level, though...

I couldn't get into Hexyz Force for some reason. It reminds me a lot of a somewhat sloppier Grandia - a game that I love to bits when I play it, but I can never play it for more than an hour at a time, with months between each session.

Anyways, I actually had very few complaints with this list. I could nitpick a few spots for their location, but I'm not into that. I did notice that there were lots of ports and remakes, but thems the breaks when you're covering the PSP. I guess my biggest complaint would be that Xmen got a mention while Persona 2 went unmentioned, but I have a feeling I'd be alone there.

I almost forgot about Yamato 2199. I got 6 episodes in and then stopped so I could marathon the rest once it finished. Guess I know what I'm watching next.

Fighting games and Action-Adventure. I play fighting games as my anti-RPG - something I can pick up and play for a while without having to worry about story or location...or save points. Action-Adventure I'd say is sort of an extention of my love of RPGs (or perhaps RPGs are an extention of my love of Action-Adventure?). I also like other genres sometimes, but these are the ones I have consistantly gone back to for the past 3 years or so.

Overall, it's pretty fast, clean, and mostly functional. I've certainly used worse. I think I might continue using it, at least for Space Brothers and Fairy Tail. Speaking of which:
Code:
Did they just kill off Grey while he was distracted by Julia's idiocy? I mean, I can't imagine that they'd kill one of their best characters in such an embarassing way, but he did kinda get turned into swiss cheese...so if he lives, it's bullcrap. Kinda stuck in a bind there, Mr. writer...

Code:
Grey's watch says it's Organ-less-O-Clock.

They'll probably do what Gundam AGE did have the next episode lead off with the character in question showing up only almost being impaled despite the new scene not really looking all that similar to the previous one.

*After Reading Chapter* Even Better:
Code:
A character sacraficed herself to turn back time...and only managed to turn it back one minute. But everyone gets to keep their memories, so Grey and 3 other people managed to save themselves from death...because they all died within the same minute apparently. (These must be some very coordinated Dragons...or maybe everyone's idiocy was just in sync =P)

Code:
Did the character that activated the Omega 13 also get a mulligan?

Even better:
Code:
Yes. I mean, they could've retconned the entire arc when they destroyed the [s]tardis[/s] time door, thus saving everyone, but instead it just forces everyone back to their own time, while the heroes celebrate, and they make up some crap about her failing the spell, thus surviving instead of being sacrificed. Oh, but now she's an old lady, I guess that's close enough.

Is the manga reader any good?  I can't get a free trial since I'm already a premium member...(does that make sense to anyone?)

A lot of these online manga readers are pretty crappy...I tried using Jmanga back in the day to support the industry and all that and look how that turned out...

It's okay. Still has some issues to work out. It has one of those Magnifiers that always goes a set resolution, which sucks for me, since with my funky screen resolution, the full screen doesn't quite go full screen, instead having a White border along the bottom and sides. But if I magnify it, it cuts stuff off. Not that it matters, it goes back to the default every time your turn the page.

It also has this bar on the bottom that has your settings, Magnifyer option, Chapter select, and an orange bar that fills as you go through the chapter and lets you easily select which page you'd like to go to. On the chapter I tried, it never quite fills all the way up, even when I'm on the last page, and trying to click on the last page was difficult since I had to find just the right spot. I also noticed a slight loading time when trying to go from the beginning to the end, and when trying to load up the next chapter.

Just started.

I see, I haven't been on there over a month, so I wasn't sure. Nice, hope it pans out better than the webcomic thing did.

Yay, One Piece is coming to Crunchyroll! Now I no longer have to deal with Hulu for new episodes! <3

Also...how long has Crunchyroll had Manga? :O If they keep adding Fairy Tail, I might go read some of that. They got a lot of Space Brothers, too...

It's the best F2P game I've played. Which really isn't that much, but it was good fun.
