Congratz Yoda. Glad Darksiders was worth it for ya. I should probably go pick it up next time I head to the Mall.

Anyways, I've been playing Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Distruction and Pokemon Black Version 2. Both are games I'm really enjoying, but not quite as much as I expected to. For R&CF:ToD, it really feels like the series' charm is wearing off on me. This game does quite a few things differently, but not enough, and some of them are worse (I miss destructable environments...). It's still clever, funny, and mostly well made, but there are some annoying glitches and some levels are drawn out more than they should be, especially the missions where you bring those two clunkers along. Oh well, I figure I'm nearing the end, so I'll probably power through the rest soon enough.

Pokemon Black 2 - There are a lot of things really holding this back, and most of them were things done right in Black 1. The non-trainer dialogue is pretty bland, and the story so far has been really bad, even for a Pokemon game. It's poorly written, poorly paced, pooly put together, and worst of all, Team Plasma no longer comes off as a threat so you don't really have much pushing you forward. I thought it couldn't get much worst than Team Galactic's half-hearted shinanigans, but Team Plasma has taken the cake, and is definitely a shadow of its former self. And I miss N something fierce, too. Oh well, I like the new stuff they added, which is a ton, except for the Movie making mini-game. That sucked. Also, there's an endless supply of pokemon to collect now, which is both a good thing and a bad thing. Good thing, because that gives me tons of choices, bad thing in that it slows the pacing as I try to get as much as I can before I give up. I also seem to need to grind more than I did in Black 1. I'm 4 badges in, but I fear I may burn out before the end.

Also, while I was writing this, I went and played some Super Mario Sunshine. Too keep it short, the problems of this game are starting to mount, too. It's still good, but I'm on the 3 most frustrating levels in the game (I hope). One requires the camera cooperates with me (which it only does half the time), another is a boss fight against ever multiplying shadows which I cabn't seem to beat, and the last one is just really hard. Oh well, at least getting the Blue coins can be fun sometimes.

Since Pinnacle Station kinda sucked IIRC, I'd say the PS3 version's still the best version to go with. =P

I liked the Wii Controls. It was actually possible to pull off circles and bombs with some kind of consistancy.

It's been a while since we've heard word on localizations of Dragon Quest games since Joker 2, so I'm somewhat doubtful this and other more recent titles, like Slime Mori Mori 3 and Terry's Wonderland, will see light outside Japan, since Square-Enix has given up on the series and Nintendo has had to step in to translate them. Good news, regardless.

I know what you mean, but I'm expecting both of those to get an announcement next year, even if Nintendo has to get involved again.

I'd like to say that makes me nostalgic, but I have bad memories with Super Mario World, so...

What?  Why?  SMW was awesome.

I suck at Mario games, so all my memories consist of my dying over and over again, on practically every level. And don't even get me started on the Forest of Illusion...

To give it credit, it's the only 2D Mario game after the first where I didn't quit after the second world. It's just that I kinda wish I did...

For the record, while I'm excited for this, I'm mostly getting it as my "Mecha game" for the year, since I wanted a Mecha Christmas. Might get a Gundam model, too...except I'm kinda low on space for them. :P

So this means that Disney will own Monkey Island and other LucasArts franchises.

You know, everyone's freaking out over Star Wars, but this worries me more, to be honest.

Okay, I don't remember seeing any of those that are in the eBay Auction among your list that you had been posting here. Which is a shame, since some of those I might have bought individually. Oh well, good luck on your auction.
1120  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest VII coming to 3DS (Japan) in Feb. on: October 30, 2012, 12:37:41 PM
Yeah, what Aeolus said. If they can fix some of the Major issues with the original, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

My mind has been blown. I always wondered how they managed to make mountains look so good, and here I just saw him whip one out in nothing flat. Wow.
1122  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zone of the Enders HD Collection, Jehuty in 1080p on: October 28, 2012, 12:11:46 PM
I knew I should've gotten the 360 version. Oh well. I still look forward to my Collector's Edition (Thanks for the heads up btw, Yggdrasil. I wouldn't have known about it beforehand had you not mentioned it). I love the mecha designs, so I know I'll like the artbook.

Go to a grocery store and buy palette of bottles of water for cheap and keep them in your car.

Wouldn't they get too hot in summer?

I think some of you are just too jaded. :P

That's the reality of practically every gaming site on the Internet.

Not quite everyone. I know at least one where very few people are jaded.

As for the new game announcement...I don't think I even believe that's real. Guess I'll be off to do research...

I'm waiting until it ends. It seems like the kind of show I'd watch all in one shot.
