I actually thought The basic Neku stuff was fairly shallow and boring as hell. It's my biggest complaint with that game. Like, if the Neku stuff was fun on its own, I'd maybe push through to the latter half of the narrative where the story apparently gets a million times better or something, but since that's not the case it's just one of the many reasons why I can't stand it.

Maybe I don't remember right, but I just remember going in lots of straight lines and fighting stuff....which would've saved me hours had I known about the scene-skipping feature...

Dragonball Z 41:
I sort of feel like this chapter is something of a cop out. Also it just occurred to me, why would the Saiyans not put armor on their tails considering that they have size changing armor, I'm sure they could make it semi flexible or something.

Because it would make it a pain in the ass to sit...literally.

Also, I tried watching more Reborn, but it's getting incredibly frustrating. 14 episodes in and there's still no plot. I just checked, and I have 6 more episodes to go before anything important happens, and then after 6 episodes I'll have 7 more episodes of this episodic crap...guess I should've left it on hold and stuck to Yu Yu Hakusho...I'm almost up to the Dark Tournament now.

I was gonna try to quote a bunch of stuff, but I'll just leave it at this: The various statements made in this thread, from 'TWEWY is not that great' to 'Tales of Symphonia is not the best Tales game' to '2001: A Space Odyssey is boring', and the fact that the people making such statements have been treated courteously and even lead to interesting discussion, reminds me why I come to this forum (and reminds me I should probably come around here more often instead of going to forums where I get flamed for making similar statements).

As for Infinite Space, I wanted to like that game, but it look forever to get going, battles were rediculously slow, and if I recall correctly, I hated the general lack of exploration, but still having to deal with random battles during missions. Probably one of my biggest disappointments as far as RPGs go...

Yeah, the animations and lack of save points were a pain, but I still loved FF3 despite that. That said, I didn't find it very hard until the final dungeon, and I didn't even grind. Maybe it was just because I went out of my way to explore every inch of everything?

15 hours into Xenoblade Chronicles and I finally hit a roadblock at Colony 6.
Nevermind. Gave it another shot and kicked Xord's butt. I'm not even sure what I did different, guess I just got lucky. Also, the story is becoming incredibly engrossing. Guess I won't be taking many more breaks from this for a while...

Okay, maybe I'll take a quick break for Assassin's Creed II. I was going to get this for the PS3, but then my PS3 broke. Then I got it for my 360 and my 360 broke. Now I have it for the PS3 and my 360 was fixed that very day. =P I was starting to think this game was cursed, but so far so good. I'm only an hour into the game...and it would probably be 30 minutes if I didn't get chased around by guards constantly. Seriously, is everybody in this country supposed to be super athletic or something? Because I can understand the assassin being able to do awesome parkour moves and climb up buildings in ways that would make Spider-Man jealous, but I sure as hell didn't expect the guards to be climbing up right after me. I guess the assassins and the guards all have the same personal trainer. =P

I think the only game that I'd want to put on there that's not on there is The Dark Spire. As far as Wizardry-likes go, it's easily the best I've played. I know it's not a very popular game around here, though, so I wasn't expecting it to appear on the list.
1328  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGFan's 20 Top 20 DS Games on: November 21, 2013, 07:52:13 PM
Personally, If there's any game on that list that deserved to be where it is, it'd be Devil Survivor. #3 just seems perfect for it in my eyes.
1329  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGFan's 20 Top 20 DS Games on: November 21, 2013, 04:59:38 PM
Yeah, That Tales of Hearts threw me for a loop. Only complaint I have besides TWEWY getting #1 (only time I'll ever complain about placement is when TWEWY's involved. :P). Not that I don't think it's a good game, I just don't think it's fair to list imports. I'm also surprised Apollo Justice won out among the Phoenix Wrights. Not that I'm complaining, if anything it keeps things interesting. I hate lists that are too predictable.

It's not always about you, Aeolus!  I was responding to Klutz64...

Anyway, yeah the first game looked kind of mediocre, but from what I've heard this was a big improvement.  It got pretty good reviews in Japan.  I was actually seriously considering importing it, but it came out during the summer that was already packed with localized games I wanted so I passed.  Guess that was the right choice.

Now to play Akiba's Trip 2 ;)

Edit: Nobody has been quoting their press release (which was actually pretty funny):

Quote
IRVINE, CA – Nov. 19, 2013 – When two game companies love each other very much, a magical thing happens. ATLUS and Spike Chunsoft didn’t use protection when localizing and publishing together and are now the proud parents of the turn-based RPG Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars. Although this is the first game in the series localized into English, Conception II has a standalone story. Conception II will be delivered in the spring of 2014, for the Nintendo 3DS™ and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system.

In Conception II, players take on the role of a young man beginning his training as a Disciple – a human gifted with the divine powers of one of the Star Gods, and one of the few who can fight the monsters that plague the world. These monsters emanate from the Pandora Labyrinth, which births these abominations at a prodigious rate. Worse yet, the Pandora Labyrinth is beginning to spawn labyrinths of its own, so it’s up to the Disciples to put an end to it. And even worse than that, a Star God’s power only resides within a human until the age of 18 and the need for new Disciples is at an all-time high. Meaning Disciples will have to combine their powers to “create” Star Children who can fight for them in battle. Let’s put it this way... it brings a new meaning to the phrase “after-school activities.”

For those eager to figure out the birds and the bees of Conception II, here are some of the game’s features:

No Child Labor Laws: In addition to the protagonist and his fellow students bravely entering the Labyrinths, you must combine your powers with other Disciples to give life to Star Children, ethereal beings that can fight in battle. But, like regular children, it’s important to make sure they’re strong enough to face monsters from beyond the veil of sanity in battle.

No Monogamy For You, Player: The protagonist has opportunities to strengthen his bonds with seven key heroines throughout the game. Not only does this help you create stronger Star Children, but the girls become more formidable as well, making them reliable partners in battle... and other places.

Assume the Position: Monsters in Conception II all have weak spots, and their vulnerabilities are revealed based on the direction characters attack from. Colored arrows help the Disciples see which direction will cause the most damage when attacked. The order your party takes action will depend on your choices and each character’s agility. Understanding the turn system and finding the best location to attack from will bring about swift and decisive victory.

Getting Chained Down: Another key system in Conception II is the Chain Drive, a meter that slowly builds during combat. When it reaches climax, a monster will be chained down, slowing it dramatically. This opens the enemy up for major damage.

Okay, I'm sold. =P

Actually, Conception 1 sounded fairly decent to me. If the second is a big improvement, then I'll most likely pick it up. At least it comes out in the spring instead of winter, so it won't get lost in crowd (at least for now).

Makes me really miss Andriasang even more.  That was a really good site.

I know what you mean. I'm glad the guy got a job in the industry, since he deserved it, but it still feels like there's a void not quite being filled with that place gone...

How do I add you all as friends??? D:
...if you wanted...
 

You just gotta input their NNID (their Nintendo Name, basically) in the Friends section of the Home button menu, and they have to input yours. I believe they'll get a request if they have Miiverse on, but I'm not sure since I've had Miiverse blocked this whole time.

I always hear good things about GTO. If its anything like Captain Tylor, I'll definitely have to check it out some time.

Anyways, I had started watching Reborn, but I got tired of the constant character introduction episodes by episode 7 and had to put it on hold.

Now I'm rewatching Yu Yu Hakusho and having a blast. I'm 8 episodes in and there hasn't been a dull moment despite the major fights not starting until episode 6. The writer just does a good job of keeping things interesting and intense even without fight scenes or major villains. Hell, the premise for the first 5 episodes could've made for an interesting show all on its own, but I like how its been tying into the main story so well so far. I was gonna put it down to watch some Yamato, but that's gonna be easier said than done.

^A simple typo caused by being as excited as a school girl.

Any word on the price of the CE, or is it a pre-order bonus thing?

Gamestop has it priced at $54.99. No one else seems to have pre-orders up at the moment, so I'm not sure how accurate that is...
