1216  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Most Anticipated 2013 Discussion Thread on: January 15, 2013, 12:40:02 PM
Ni No Kuni is my #1 most anticipated, and it comes out next week! I won't be able to play it until the week after, though...

Followed by:

Tales of Xillia
Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers
Etrian Odyssey IV
Phantasy Star Online 2

The first three I'll pre-order. Might also pick up Fire Emblem, but I'm not expecting much from it.

I actually thought the demo was quite riveting. It was only early stuff, but so far I'm impressed. Sure, the story is only half-interesting, it has a cheezy hollywood style to it, the voice acting flat out sucks, the difficulty feels a tad low for a Devil May Cry game, the demon pull mechanic confused the heck outta me, and the platforming controls kinda suck, but the core combat was fun - not as fun as DMC usually is, but better than Ninja Theory has ever done before. It feels like a Heavenly Sword that doesn't suck, for instance, with the way you switch weapons with the trigger. The boss battle on show was also cleverly designed. At the very least, they know how to make this game intense, while also throwing in enough downtime to explore your surroundings, which is quite rewarding.

I honestly don't expect an unrelated party to ever really come close to Devil May Cry 3 and 4, but I think this is as close to them as I could possibly ask, assuming the rest of the game can hold this level of quality. That said, I won't be buying it day one, but that's more because of money issues than anything else. I may pick it up next year, though. And I look forward to it.

G-d, this does look like a good game. However, and I hate to beat a thoroughly dead horse, I just can't get used to Dante's new look. I've seen it for over a year now, and it still looks...weird. That's, like, the only problem I have with the game, though. I was worried about the gameplay from the early videos, but it does look like they've patched that up recently. I guess I'll go play the demo and see if I like it, though I might just end up playing more of DMC4 and Bayonetta solely because I like the style of those games more.

Can you? Nintendo's website said something specific about that, but I can't remember what and now I can't find it...

and if it had a physical cart.

Asides from a collectors perspective is this a problem? Would I have space issues if I got a bundle because I couldn't uninstall the game without losing it?

Oddly enough, I can't find a definitive answer to this question. You'd think it'd be in the FAQ...I can't find anyone even asking that question, let alone an FAQ that mentions it....

EDIT:

Reworded the question, and found the answer in the System transfer section (you won't lose the pre-installed game if you do a system transfer, btw. I didn't know that. The eShop accounts merge, too) And I found out that the game will be saved to your download history, meaning you can redownload it on that system (or any systen you do a system transfer to) via the eShop. So it is safe to delete if you run out of space.

I dunno, I guess it's just refreshing to see someone A) Not let Kotaku get away with their shit and B) actually speak their mind, even if it does make them sound stupid and childish.

Plus, the whole thing's as amusing as watching two twelve year olds fight on the playground...which, I find to be very amusing indeed.
1222  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: January 14, 2013, 03:58:53 PM
i just hope they keep it fundamentally turn based and dont start thinking they need a psuedo MMO style battle system.

I'm sure if they wanted to, they'd just go full action-based, kinda like the Devil Summoner games on the PS2.

I should probably play that soon...oh wait, yeah, now I remember, I need a controller. Guess I can use my PS3 one...

STALKER wouldn't work well with a controller at all and I doubt it even supports one.

That could be a major problem. I find FPSes to be completely unplayable with a mouse and keyboard. :| Crap...

Howso?

I can't aim for shit with a mouse, and I find mouses uncomfortable since I have so little space to use one. And I can never remember what key does what when I really need it when I use a keyboard.

Anyways, While the game itself doesn't support a controller, it seems there are programs I can use for it that'll emulate a mouse and keyboard with a controller, and there are enough major commands that can be mapped to a controller, too. I'll see how that goes once I get around to it sometime this week.

Mickey, try stalker? It has much lower system requirements, but is similarly atmospheric, apocalyptic, and Slavic.

I forget I have that game. I should probably play that soon...oh wait, yeah, now I remember, I need a controller. Guess I can use my PS3 one...

And I agree with a lot of what you said about Zelda, especially Zelda 1, since I'm playing it right now, and have gotten further than ever, so I'm noticing a lot of the strategy and design of the dungeons and enemies.

Actually, reading it all again while I type this, I think you hit every nail on the head...I'd explain more, but I don't think there is anything more I could add.

I like Hot Fuzz *way* more than Shaun of the Dead (a lot of others feel the other way I find).

Oh yeah, same here. I actually thought Shaun of the dead could've been better, though I can't quite remember how or why. Hot Fuzz, though, was pretty ace. I should rewatch it soon.

I'm gonna be blunt, this looks even more generic than RO1. :| And yet still I am intrigued for some reason. Guess cuz it has class upgrades, and it's free. I'm just short of running it, though (need a slightly better GPU to meet minimum), so I won't be participating in the beta.

Besides, Shawcross says, the Obama administration "does not support blowing up planets."

Damn, I knew I should've voted for Palpatine...

Or Newt Gingridge (or however Mr. "I wanna build a moon base!"'s name is spelled).

...all of a sudden, I wish I'd paid attention to politics. :P

The Other Guys isn't that good, IMO. I liked it, but actually thought it was less funny than a lot of Wii Ferrel movies that I've seen. I thought Stranger Than Fiction was one of his better movies, though. Just saying.

I'd say something more on-topic, but I've honestly never had this experience. All of my friends either agree a movie on the quality, or none of us can agree at all.

long series scare me...

That's the reason I'm never ever starting Ramna.
I missed it back then and it's just too much now.

Man, if you think Ramna is long. God help you if you ever decide to get into a long running shonen series.

Yeah, I was gonna say...

I mean, Ranma 1/2 is "only" 161 episodes long, and it's sort of a sitcom, so it's pretty easy to put down and pick up. Shounen, though...yeah, those'll suck up tons of your time. The main reason I didn't finish any anime last year was because I devoted most of my spare time to shounen shows, some of which are still running.


BTW...I finally, finally finished the Thriller Bark arc. It was a good arc, possibly more enjoyable than the Enies Lobby arc - I loved the atmosphere and whole holloween-y aspect to the Thriller Bark "island" and its inhabitants; I thought the level of comedy was more balanced to an appropriate level; the action was a definite step down, but it was still very interesting - It's nice to see everyone else take on large groups of enemies, and the Absalom, Undead samurai, and Oars fights were pretty creative. I especially liked the Oars fight, since you got to see everyone team up to take one one enemy, without luffy for the most part, and actually hold their own for quite a while. Even when Luffy came in, they still worked together to defeat him in a rather unexpected way. Too bad Moria himself was a bit of a joke, though. The new crewmate, though, Brooks, is fantastic, instantly likeable and funny. He has a less interesting backstory than usual, but it was still good enough to make me really feel for him.

All together, it was pretty fun to watch. Not the greatest arc, but I still enjoyed it enough, despite being rather tired of the series from my major Marathon in November. I'm tempted to watch the next non-filler arc, but I really should take a long break from the series now.
