Okay, so every time I go to play Lunar, I end up playing Persona 3 instead. So I guess I'm maining with P3 for now...but I'll get to Lunar soon enough.

Anyways, I had realized I wasn't far into Persona 3 FES after all, so I decided to restart and do things better now that I know to just rush to the boss area and then grind. I'm on April 23rd now. I actually almost beat the boss on my first try, but then I decided to see what happens when I use agi on one of the boss creatures and got by butt kicked. =( Now I gotta wait a few days until I can go back. Think I'll join the track team in the meantime.

@Dice - I never really liked Kirby, but I do love Kirby's Adventure. You're right that it's very impressive, even today. I'm also looking forward to playing Kirby's Return to Dreamland someday (soon, hopefully).

While FF8 isn't my favourite of the FF series, I like that the events from Disc 1-4 are exactly what they are, events. Don't we play Final Fantasy games to experience the completely ridiculous, outlandish yet charming stories?

I don't. It's a plus for sure, but I play them because they're fun to play, at least for me. Just putting that out there...

With that said, you're right about FF8 basically being "events", as you put it. Some things feel there for the sake of it, not really being connected to what came before, or even making sense. I actually didn't mind that, and you could argue such a thing for a few other, well-like RPGs, too. It does have its charm, and it helps keep the game fun.

Nice. Maybe now the prices of 2 and 3 will drop even harder. Might get this for the PS3 someday if I like the series enough. Be good for a second playthrough.

Nah, I think the original's the best-looking out of the PS3 models. I still do really like my slim, though. Matte finish really helps with the dust and fingerprints, unlike the original model my friend has.

The Super Robot Taisen Z2 games.

Seriously. If you've played Original Generation 1 or 2, you'll be pretty set with these ones. They're fun games all their own, too.

Too bad I bought the 360 version...

This is an odd question, but from my loose understanding of literature, I think that's very possible. I suppose it depends on the type of story they're trying to tell, and what type of stories you're interested in.

An example: I think it's generally agreed that Final Fantasy 8 is not as well written as Final Fantasy IX, yet there are those who still prefer FF8's story. Usually this is because FF8 was trying to be a love story, and those people just happened to really like love stories.

An example that's closer to what you're saying, but doesn't involve games: I watched The Godfather and Scarface back to back, starting with the Godfather. After about an hour, I got bored of The Godfather and switched to Scarface, which I ended up enjoying a lot more. Why? Well, for one, when I think of gangsters, I think of lots of violence, which Scarface had in spades, right from the word go. The Godfather may have had just as much violence, if not moreso, but it sure wasn't in the first hour, which leads me to the next reason: The Godfather has a slow, lengthy intro, and is probably slower-paced in general. That isn't always a bad thing, but in this case, it was so slow I didn't even have a reason to care about what was going on in the story - it was unclear who the main characters were and what the basis of the plot was, though they sure spent a helluva lot of time establishing the setting and atmosphere. Scarface, on the otherhand, hit the ground running, and in 20 minutes I was already enthralled, not just with the action, but with the story as well. I just found it so much more interesting because of that.

That's not to say The Godfather is in anyway a bad movie, but just because something is quantifiably "good" doesn't mean everybody's gonna like it the same.

I saw Howl's Moving Castle 2 or 3 times, and still don't have a freakin' clue what was going on in that movie.

Does anyone know if it is possible to hook an IOS device to a television to play on the "big screen" (sort of like with the PSP cables)??

Look up Airplay.

I can't find anything about a DeviantArt, but I think he/she (seems to be a girl's name) is on 4Chan...
1241  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea: Makai Collection announced on: September 25, 2012, 11:57:07 AM
G-ddamnit, I thought it was a collection of the first 3 games. :(
1242  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: September 24, 2012, 09:42:33 AM
I still can't stand Dragon Warrior 2, even after playing a lot of other DQ games.
1243  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Which RPG Should I Play? on: September 24, 2012, 09:00:50 AM
Thanks for the tip, Mesh. I'll try to remember that when I play it, which should be some time this afternoon.

As for the long term effects of this...well, its probably going to be a while before Sunrise approaches a third party to make a major Gundam production, and given Unicorn's general success it means even more UC stagnation/UC copies are probably scheduled for down the line instead of relatively original concepts like this show had thrown around. The whole generational conflict thing for AGE was such a great idea too. What a complete waste.

I think you're being a little too cynical, especially since Unicorn had some pretty interesting ideas on its own. Not to say there won't be more UC/UC-Like stuff, but I do think they'll go for more side work adaptions for a while, and there's some freaki' great side works for them to choose from.

I decided to pick Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete. Thanks for all the suggestions, everybody. You'll know how it goes when I post in the New Game Journal.
