How long is Rumiko Takahashi Anthology? I saw it in a store not too long ago, but they were asking, like, $60 for it...

I don't think I'll even be able to finish it, let alone play the Post game. The Final boss has been kicking my butt for a while now. I'll try one more time tomorrow, but I'm about ready to move on. I've already started playing other games.

I played Atelier Rorona for almost 4 hours, and ended up with a lot of mixed fillings. On the one hand, I hate the characters, the dialogue could be better, the alchemy is more limited than I'd hoped, so far all I'm doing is a bunch of menial fetch quests, the combat could be better, and for some reason going out and looking through the nearby forest could take up an entire week. Oh, and even though certain things take up only part of the day to make, a full day still goes by. On the otherhand, I feel like many of these problems will get better as I go along.

So I guess I'll give Rorona another shot tomorrow and see if I start to like it more. Until then, I restarted Tales of Destiny and got back to where I was. I really like this game for some reason, the combat is amazingly repetitive at the moment, but it's still fun, and the characters and dialogue are great. Also, I'm surprised to find that the Japanese dialogue is fully intact in this one.

Jesus Christ this game seems to be sold out everywhere. Some stores on Amazon have a few copies but they're charging more than regular price for it...is that a good sign or a bad sign?

I have faith in Atlus!

Anyways, I just pre-ordered this. Just 3 more weeks to wait. I'm greatly looking forward to it.

Ys Origin:  Fought a big fucking centipede in a water themed dungeon, which makes absolutely no sense at all.

I'm guessing you've never had a centipede in your bathtub before?

Anyways, I'm on the final dungeon of Dragon Quest IV. I think it's safe to say I like this game now. Not sure if I should just wrap it up tonight, put it off until tomorrow, or do what I usually do and quit right before the end for no good reason. =P

Why do you need an excuse?

...cuz I just do?

But on that topic, I hope the second TitS comes just so I can have an excuse to listen to this all the time.

I actually thought LotGH was visually impressive from the few episodes I saw. I don't recall seeing tons of recycled animation, errors, and slide shows like I'm used to seeing in old anime. It has been a while since I've seen any of it, though.

Anyways, Kevuda, I think you'd really like Fang of the Sun Dougram. It's kinda like Legend of the Galactic Heroes in that it's filled with political intrigue, historical allusions, and is more focused on more human issues. While the war is much more of a focus in Dougram and battles are more frequent, they're often methodical and tactical, and the main mecha is usually just a part of grander strategy, especially as it goes on. It's definitely one of the most natural sci-fi military fictions I've encountered, and while I haven't seen it all the way through yet, I did accidently spoil the ending on me, and I have a good feeling you'd appreciate the more realistic ending more than I would. My only complaint is that its pacing is very much in line with LoGH as well...it managed to hold my attention very well, but I'll admit I started to get antsy at times. I mean it spends 7 or 8 of its 75 episodes just on the prologue. =P Oh, and the main guy was annoying at first, but he grows up pretty fast.

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.
1139  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: .Hack on: July 16, 2012, 11:06:00 AM
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.
