Both Steam and Blizzard have come out publicly and basically said 'Windows 8 sucks and is bad for the gaming environment'. So if you were wanting to get a new computer recently you better do it before they make W8 'standard' with all new systems. XP

Ugh, and I probably am gonna need a new comp by this time next year. :( Might be too late, then...

Was Lady Sia any good?

Anyways, I was really hoping to pre-prder this, but I fear I may not be able to afford to pick it up day one.

EDIT: Nevermind, it comes out in October! I just might be able to pick it up then.

Oh G-d, what have I done! I'm spoiling the game I've waited so many years to play! D= It's so hilarious, though! Can't...STOP!...

I can still forgive a game for random encounters, though I don't like them one bit. I just hope the encounter rate isn't too bad...

Meanwhile, I've given up playing games on the 360, so I'll be good. I'm waiting until the fall to pick it up, though. Just used up August's spare money.

@Ashton - man, that was awesome. Also, on a semi related note, it reminded me of the first time I beat Garland...because I at the time, I seriously thought I beat the entire game. And I felt like a champion. (and like a champion, proceeded to turn the game off without saving. Luckily on the next go around, I learned how to equip stuff, so it didn't take me 10 hours).

Love the story too. Wish I could play Vesperia, because Yuri sounds awesome.

Yuri is awesome, so is Judith, and Yuri's friend/rival (forgot-his-name). Unfortunately, the rest of the team is a wash of obnoxious tweens who seem to have to prove their tweeniehood every 30 seconds by saying something really immature. The female "lead" is a complete waste of a human being, and even as cool as Yuri is, as someone pointed out, his appeal is cut short by the fact that he is not only willing to hang with all of these idiots, but let them actually make important decisions! Add to that Vesparia's bizarrely random battle system, and you have a pretty flawed game.

Abyss is ugly as sin, but a wonderful experience that no one here will regret.

Currently playing Graces (on me new PS3). It's kiddy, but at least it aims to be kiddy, unlike Vesparia that acts like it's going to be mature, only to become "Tales of Babysitting"
Are you saying Raven is a tween? He's one of my favorite Tales characters. SEXUALITYYYY...

My girlfriend at the time watched me play Vesperia and consistently told me that Raven reminded her of me.

I don't remember that Victory quote, but chances are I got it once or twice and just forgot about it.

As for Estelle, I actually really liked her as a character. It's just her AI that sucked. In fact...I can't think of any character in ToV I really disliked. Maybe Karol, but he reminds me a bit of my little brother, so I find it hard to dislike him, even when he's being a pain. Other than that, they were all great. Yuri's one of my favorite characters of all time, in fact.

Doesn't help that I didn't realize an easier unchain method till I'd already cleared the game >__<

And that method would be...? Don't leave us hanging, man, that info could be really helpful. =P

Well 4 episodes in on the Familiar of Zero (1st season) and I'm thinking this is gonna be another fantasy-let-down..... I'm hoping I'm wrong but we will see......

If you think it's disappointing now, just wait until you get further in...

Given that the only other two fantasy series I have on deck at the moment are Ragnarok and Fairy Tale (as I discussed a page or two ago), I've been trying to sample some other stuff to see what other realms I could jump into.

Gokudo not turn out to be something you'd be interested in?

I wanna watch Legend of Galactic heroes but I gotta wait til I can procure that one still....

Procure? As in buy? LoGH never game came out in the west.

soooo in the mean-time I'm sure nearly everyone has seen some case closed and cowboy bebop.... any impressions anyone cares to share with me would be appreciated :)

Case Closed - I have a friend or two who love that show, but I have not watched more than an episode or two, and it didn't impress. Of course, said friends said to at least get to episode...8, I think. I couldn't convince myself to go on, though, since it's a "crime-of-the-week-with-occasional-interlinking-plots" type of show that I just have a really hard time getting into. I even gave up on Pretty Cure after about 13 episodes, because despite being thoroughly entertaining, without a plot there's very little motivation for me to go on when things get stupid (like episode 14).

Now, Cowboy Bebop, on the otherhand, is how you do episodic material right. Every episode is exciting, the little stories in each episode are well done, there's enough interlinking plot to really motivate you to go on, and you're always learning more about the world and its characters as you go. The ending is also one of the best I've ever seen in anime. Asside from that, it has some really clever action, great music, and a great sense of style, and it all comes together to make something really special.

Despite all this mountainous praise, I suggest not getting too hyped for it, since that's just asking to be disappointed, like DICE was. =P A lot of it comes down to how much you like sci-fi westerns (though it doesn't throw around a lot of sci-fi jargen, thankfully), Jazz, and the various eras of American history, such as the Old West, The Great Depression, and the 70's and 80's.

Personally, I'd wait until this time next year before giving up on TitS2. It's a massive game, so I hear, so I'd imagine it would be a while before we even heard anything about it. And...I thought I got an email from Atlus saying that we're getting Eternal Punishment this fall...but that may have been for Japan, now that I think about it.

How long is Rumiko Takahashi Anthology? I saw it in a store not too long ago, but they were asking, like, $60 for it...
1244  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: July 22, 2012, 06:41:34 PM
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?
