My PS3 is coming back from Sony tomorrow, apparently, and I'm going to pick up Ni no Kuni tomorrow as well. So it looks like I'll be playing this game much sooner than expected.

Also there was fast travel in the Ballad of Gales melody.

Yeah...actually, now that you bring that up, I think that lessens a lot of people's complaints about the sailing. At least to an extent.

Finished Level E and that was a nice surprise, I went into it with no expectations and had a good time watching it. now for The Mystic Archives of Dantalian, reminds me a bit of Gosick so far which I enjoyed (at least 2/3 of it) so we'll see.

IIRC, GoSick was exactly what they were going for, so...

Anyways, I noticed I left the One Piece tab open, and wouldn't you know it, when I clicked on it to X out of it, the video started running, and I ended up watching 5 more episodes.

...I may have an addiction.

But, at least those episodes were fun. I loved it when they unmasked Duval:
Code:
It turns out he looks exactly like the messed up drawing on Sanji's Wanted Poster! I could not stop laughing! And he made it sound so heart wrenching (or maybe I'm a sucker) when he talks about all he had to suffer through because of Sanji.

Indeed. I've had my 3DS since 2011, but it looks like It'll finally get some use this year. Really looking forward to this game.

Speaking of computer troubles, I was on a very important story scene in Mother 3, and a character, who had been beating around the bush, was finally gonna make what I assume is a stunning and horrific revelation...but then my computer froze. Literally seconds before he was about to say it.
Neither Words nor youtube videos could not express my rage.
1206  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: January 20, 2013, 12:33:10 PM
Mother 3 has timing issues on emulators that make doing the button-presses-timed-with-the-music thing in the battle system not work right.
I'm weirdly glad to hear this.  I always thought I sucked at the Mother 3 attack commands.

Same here. I was wondering why I'm only getting one extra attack every other time when I'm pretty good at rhythm stuff. :/

I believe you can look that up in the menu, but I doubt you could reference it during the battle.

Anyways, I finally got myself to play a game again. It's been a while. I started up Mother 3 from the beginning since I found out I had only played for 30 minutes years ago.I'm not far in yet, only to the end of the part with the forest fire. I really like how this game starts out. Like, seriously, I used to be one of those people that needed to be impressed by a game within the first hour in order to bother with it. While I don't know why I didn't continue with it before, I was definitely impressed by it now. These days I usually dislike playing games on emulators, but I think I'll make an exception for this game. I guess this'll hold me over until my PS3 gets fixed and I can play Ni no Kuni.

@Yoda - sometimes that's easier said than done. I know personally I can never decide what to play, hence why I have over 800 unbeaten games. :(
1209  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: xbox exclusive that won't distract me from Ni No Kuni.... on: January 18, 2013, 01:33:41 PM
Yeah, Blue Dragon's probably your best bet. It'd be easier to get back to once you're done with Ni no Kuni, yet I doubt it'll be so engaging it'll suck up too much of your time. I personally found myself forcing myself to play it, simply because I wanted to be enthralled with it, but couldn't.

Great, now I just hope Tales of Xillia comes out in March or May instead of April. That way I don't have to worry about picking between the two.

...unless they're from Aksys (who may be run by mad men and women).

Yeah, I've been thinking that for quite a while now. :P

And regarding Ni no Kuni, I'm not gonna lie, I'm not that big of a Level 5 fan, I just like their storytelling in the Dragon Quest and Layton games. I think this at least has a chance to have interesting gameplay. Everything I've read about it and seen about it looks interesting enough to me. The rest I'd actually be less interested in if I thought Ghibli was 100% behind them. I honestly never liked Ghibli movies. They're way too weird and confusing for me...and this is coming from someone who watches a lot of anime. The story sounds more like something I'd expect Level 5 to come up with - at the very least I feel they came up with the basics of the plot, though we'll see whose writing shines through in the actual excecution. Characters, I probably shouldn't comment on. I've only say that I've found the Level 5 characters to be shallow, yet likeable, while Ghibli can make complex characters I never really give a hoot about. I'd even say the art style is at least 5% Level 5, if only because it seems to lack this slight oddness I've noticed in the most recent Ghibli movies. Or maybe I've just finally gotten used to it. Who knows...

Not sure who did the music, I'll look it up in a minute, but what I've heard so far is really amazing. I kinda wish I was getting a sample soundtrack with it.

...The long and short of yet another rant is that I understand everyone's concerns regarding Ni no Kuni. It doesn't have the best developer behind it (though I still think people might be a tad hasty in judging the gameplay), and the rest will likely rely heavily on whether or not you love Ghibli.

Yet, I am undeterred, and have nothing but the highest hopes for it (though I am at least slightly prepared for them to come crashing down should it turn out to be less exceptional than I want it to be, like the DS version kinda was).

Looks like Taelus was right all along. It's a battle-focused RPG with an insane party size.  It still seems to use a lot of the FFV sprites, but it mixes other characters as well...but If you want the most popular ones, you have to buy them, I guess.

BTW, it doesn't seem to support the iPad 3 or higher...I'm hoping that's a mistake. :/

Trailer: http://www.jp.square-enix.com/ff_atb/en/trailer.html

That probably just means that the game isn't built for retina resolution on iPad.  I'm sure it will run on the iPad3/iPadRetina/iPad whatever the fuck.

Want condensed info?  I wroted a news story.

I see. And I'm glad the news story is up. I was too tired to read the whole thing when I wrote that. I didn't even know how it played, but now I do. Thanks.

The sprites are multiplying like rabbits, btw...

FFV remake details? I swear those sprites look like the FFV ones...
