Played some more Fallout 3 and had a very frustrating time. First, the dude's hat was floating on the side of his head...okay, that was funny, actually. What wasn't funny was taking on a quest to get critically erradiated, promised to get fixed up as soon as I returned, only for her to close shop literally as soon as I got back there. Then I had to wait for it to be dawn, since I didn't have any money for a room. Then she sends me on a quest to disarm landmines, which I thought would be great to practice disarming the Nuke, but then the game got stuck on the loading screen for a half an hour, where I then had to shut the game off. I'm not sure if it corrupted my autosave, but either way, I'm done with this game for quite some time...

I just got a free 30-Day Crunchyroll pass, so I'll be watching this season's stuff soon. I just gotta make a list of what I want to watch...there are so many...

Can anybody explain Soul Hacker's gameplay to me? I seriously could not find a single scrap of info on the battle system. I suppose I could check GameFAQs, but I'm afraid of running into spoilers...

So today I played Ni no Kuni and Fallout 3: GOTY on the PS3, each about 2 hours at a time. Ni no Kuni was kinda difficult to get through because it starts out almost exactly like DS version, whose beginning I'd gone through about 5 times now...at least this time I got to understand Drippy's witty dialogue. Once it got to the gameplay though, it's pretty fun.

Fallout 3 is also pretty slow to start, and I'd played through it before on the PC, though I barely remembered any of it. After Ni no Kuni, this game feels kinda bland and unfriendly. Not the best combination of games I could've picked. I did really want to shoot stuff, though, so I at least got that out of my system. BB Gun sucks, though. Thanks dad...

Is the New Vegas DLC really not good? I've been waiting for years to get that game, but I wanted the DLC because FO3 had really good DLC. Man...I can get for, like, under $10 without the DLC now...And I got the Ultimate Edition sitting in my Amazon cart, waiting for me to finally have the opportunity to get it...

Anyways...I just got Ni no Kuni, and all of a sudden I have a powerful urge to play a grid-based RPG with explorable levels...which Ni no Kuni most definitely is not. Why do I always have these stupid urges at the worst times? Might just grab a demo and get it out of me. Anybody know if any of the Heroes of Magic games, Rainbow Moon, or, Wakfu play like RPG adventures with grid-based movement and gameplay? I suppose there's also Fallout, which I already bought...but that game raped the hell outta me when I last attempted it...

Old World Blues is amazing.  Worth the price alone.

Since I have more time to flesh out this opinion... New Vegas has a really mixed bag of DLC.  Dead Money is pretty bad.  Honest Hearts is pretty easy, but is a good, fun romp if you just want to destroy something.  Plus it gives you some pretty good weaponry for... Old World Blues, which is pretty much the best piece of DLC I've ever played in an RPG. It's got the great 50s sci fi aesthetic, totally crazy and lovable characters, but it is TOUGH.  Lots of mechanical enemies with high armor and you will die a lot.  It's worth it, though.  I didn't play Lonesome Road, but I've heard good things about it.

Thanks, John. Sounds like I'll hold out for the Ultimate Edition after all, though I'll probably avoid the Dead Money DLC.

Don't know how I failed to put this in this thread til now.

LIVE A LIVE

S-E needs to make a 3DS port with nothing more than enhancements of the sprites and some cool 3D animation effects in-battle.

And then bring it out in English.

Instant win.
THIS! LIVE A LIVE is a great game which really needs to get a rerelease and translation.

Indeed. Live A Live was amazing. A true hidden gem.

Not sure if its been said already, but I'd love for Princess Crown to be remade. The graphics could use an upgrade (Those sprites were gorgeous opnce, but not anymore...), and the gameplay could use a few refinements, IIRC, though I don't remember exactly how. It was a really good game already, even without knowing the story, but it could be fantastic with a remake.

If they did remake them, I'd get them if they left the old gameplay relatively intact. Some updates are okay to make them more polished and intuitive, of course, but I'd love to play them with the old style mechanics.

Nice, glad we got this. Call me crazy, but I quite liked NXC and Endless Frontier. I'm definitely looking forward to this. I just hope nothing big ends up taking priority.

1271  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Abrams set to direct Star Wars VII on: January 26, 2013, 11:49:28 AM
I liked the the new Star Trek, too, but mostly as a fun movie like others said. I actually never watched more than an episode and a few measily clips of the various shows, but yes, I could tell it was different, and I could tell the plot was nonsensicle. But the characters were cool (unrealistic, sure, but that's not what I watch blockbuster action movies for) and the action was great. Wouldn't win any awards from me but I wouldn't mind a Star Wars movie in that vein. It'd at least be better than the Prequel trilogy (which I don't hate, but they were kinda boring for me, special effects aside).

I Figured you'd like it. Still, as I mentioned before, it was actually someone else who brought it to my attention. I was just passing on the recommendation to someone I thought would take more from it.
1273  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: January 25, 2013, 02:19:46 PM
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.
1274  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wind Waker U on: January 24, 2013, 09:21:48 PM
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.
