Glacial or not, I still found the beginning of KH2 to be one of the better parts of the game, along with those Gummy Ship battles.

I'm too...scared to play this game. =P I was all ready for it until I found out that it doesn't use a traditional grid-based system (I skimmed over the battle system parts in the reviews since I simply assumed it was standard. Live and learn). Strategy games are notoriously frustrating for me, so the thought of having to learn a completely new gameplay style has me quacking in my boots - it just seems too daunting! I know that sounds weird, since I played and enjoyed and didn't suck too much at Heritage of War, but honestly, I didn't know that was a strategy game until someone pointed it out to me. I just figured it was like FFXII - an RPG with a little more control over your allies. I may end up putting this series off for a long time.

Though, I think Phantom Brave may have a similar style of gameplay. I suppose I could always play that first and see how I handle it. I'm just in that game for the music, so I don't mind if it turns out it sucks.

Does the game ever explain the giving presents system? i am about 55 hours in and don't remember seeing any mention of it. I have yet to do it. How is it performed?

Go to the collectible menu and select the item you want to gift.  Hit "A" then hit give/present and pick who gives it to who.

Well now I feel stupid. I thought he was talking about trading. I don't even know how I thought that. I hope he didn't read my post yet...

EDIT: Wrong info

Once again, I'd love to hear your explanation of why Vesperia's battle system is broken. 

Me too, man. I played the game front to back with almost zero problems, and the only problems I did have were due to the AI that I didn't know how to change at the time.

Fake Edit: On second thought, I'm probably going to skip Samurai Seven. I've seen the actual Seven Samurai movie so I already know what happens, furthermore I was pretty unimpressed by the whole mecha ascetic, plus it came from Gonzo Studio which means I can almost guarantee you the ending will suck.

You sure about that? I've seen some trailers and AMVs of Samurai 7, and it doesn't seem to be at all like the movie...though maybe I just don't remember the movie very well...

Just ended up buying Utawarerumono (yes, I did have to look at the box to spell that). I can't remember if I watched any of this before or not (I keep confusing it with a bunch of unrelated shows), but I'm hoping it turns out well.

I read the review this morning and the game got bumped up from a maybe to a must-buy. It sounds really good, though I have a feeling that "Playing into a corner" is exactly what I'm gonna wind up doing. =P I guess I'll have to make multiple saves as Ashton suggested.

Thanks for the news. It's coming earlier than I was hoping, though. If it came out in late December than I could use my potential Christmas money to get it. As it stands, it seems I'm gonna have to dip into what's left of my bank account.

Dragon Warrior I. I don't know why, I even found Loto's/Edrick's Seal on my my first try this time.

How many Stars are there? I'm on 3-star Quests in Monster Hunter Tri and it's too hard. =P

Anywho, I played Dragon Warrior I on GBC all morning and afternoon, getting to and dying on the Final Boss' final form, and this evening I decided to play some more Dragon Quest IV on DS and finally beat it. It's hard to believe I've actually been enjoying Dragon Quest these days. It gives me renewed hope for this series.

EDIT: Just beat Dragon Warrior I, too. Fun game, especially compared to the NES version.

I was surprised that so many people on these forums seem to have such mixed views about FF12 since we only have a couple (glowing reviews of it)

They're not the same reviewers. Heck, one of them I don't even see around anymore.

SMT Strange Journey so far freaking rules!

Indeed it does, man, indeed it does.

I'm currently pkaying Dragon Warrior I on the GBC. As much as I hate the NES version of this game, I am greatly enjoying the GBC version (granted I know exactly what to do and where to go so I'm not spending hours aimlessly wandering around and/or dying). I just got the Shiny Harp, now headed back to the shrine for the Rain Staff.

Tales of Vesperia. To put it simply, I love the characters, especially Yuri, and the combat was top notch. It had its annoyances here and there, but otherwise I really enjoyed it from start to finish.

Not sure. I hear a Vita port would be easy to do, but have you seen Vita's sales in Japan? They're quite bad right now.

Might not be entirely work safe for less than obvious reasons.

Holy crap, what was that? Were those excerps from the actual script? If so, that was laughably bad. XD
