Big news I guess.
After 25 years of publication, Ah Megami-sama (Ah My Goddess) has finally ended.

You could technically say it took 25 years for them to get married.

That is big news. :O Did they ever get a Guinneas World Record for Most Drawn-out Storyline?

I've also been playing the first Mass Effect on the PS3 with my brother. I couldn't get into this game for a laundry list of reasons, but a lot of them have been mitigated now that my brother got me to roleplay Shepard as a Renagade, something I'm not used to. I guess roleplaying really helps with these kinds of games, but I was never good at roleplaying, so having my bro there helps.

Anyways, after doing tons of side quests and being a dick to the entire Galaxy, we just rescued Liara. I used the Mako for most of that Mission. I really feel like I didn't need to use the Mako, but I did. Most of it consisted of me running Geth over.

You know, I think that is one of the things I missed the most from the first game that they cut out of the next two. Obviously the Mako was buggy as shit and broke the game a bunch, but it could be fun too. I feel like if they fixed it instead of axing it completely I would have loved it. 2 & 3 are missing that exploration element the first one had that I enjoyed. Still great games though. Maybe they add that back in the new one they are working on, are at least something similar.

Despite how fun it is to run badguys over, my brother and I both agree that wandering around Aimlessly with the Mako is our least favorite aspect. I like the exploration, but this gets really tedious really quick. I personally won't miss it too much...

@ultra7k -  Millenium Girl. It's not even a question in my eyes.


Care to elaborate? I'd like to make an informed decision lol.

The DS EO's feel archaic compared to the 3DS ones. IMO, they're not really worth going back to anymore. Millenium Girl also does quite a few things differently, so it'll feel fresh, unlike EO3.

Anyways, looks like my last DW2 save was further back than I thought! While that also meant that I had more to redo, I was also able to get the Staff of Thunder (or Bolt Staff as the GBC version I'm playing calls it).

Played quite a bit of Dragon Warrior II before I a) realized that I lost my chance at the Staff of Thunder and b) the game reset on me randomly, causing me to lose several hours of progress, but still I can't get the Staff of Thunder. So now I don't feel like playing it much anymore. It's not that fun anyways, it's just the only DQ game that I haven't gotten really far in yet...

EDIT: Oh yeah, and I played some of the original Space Quest. Took me quite a while to get through the first area despite knowing what to do. I knew I should've turned the walking speed up...

I bought it, but I'm debating whether or not I should play it before starting Armored Core V...I never did get around to that...

EDIT: I just discovered I made the Armored Core V thread. Well that's embarassing...

The PC version was an eroge.  They cleaned it up for the console version.  That sort of thing happens a lot.

Yeah, I meant to specify that, but I forgot most people aren't well versed in this stuff so I figured mentioning the PC version was enough.

I'm sure the sex scenes weren't exactly vital to the game, anyways.
1327  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fruitbat Factory to Localize Eiyuu Senki for PS3 on: May 07, 2014, 11:09:42 AM
I feel bad because the only reason I know what this is happens to be because it was an eroge on PC...

Metroid effing Prime. Technically it's about 90% of my backlog, but Metroid Prime's the big one. I got about 2/3 of the way through before I decided to put my save on a different memory card, only to accidently delete my file instead. Unfortunately, the game left such a huge impression on me (it's my all time favorite game) that I've been able to remember everything about the game, making my attempts to replay it over the years less enjoyable.

I'm hoping there's some truth to it, but honestly, the source here is just 2Ch...that's usually not a good sign...plus my Japanese sucks so I can't read the 2ch page.

Read the review today, as well as the ones at my other two usual sources. Sounds pretty great, a few flaws and a little short, but nothing I didn't expect or can't forgive. Guess I'll be picking it up tomorrow, probably for the Wii U.

Well...what did you expect? Them to release a physical version of a game on a dead platform that you can't even buy in stores anymore and won't work with the new Vita?

A Vita version?

They can do one for Ys IV but not TiTS 2?

...Yes. Because Ys IV was what, 15 years old? And they didn't really do one before, so they had an excuse. Unless you meant to mention the Vita version of Trails of Zero/Blue, but those were more recent and hadn't been played to death by the fans, though judging by how long they take and how the Vita has been doing, I'd assume Falcom isn't too happy about their decision to even do those.

Didn't Xseed say they were looking into a digital PSP (and therefore Vita) release of TitS 2?

http://gematsu.com/2013/09/loh-trails-in-the-sky-sc-psp-steam-2014

Apparently it's already confirmed.

And Twilight was a romance novel so your analogy made no sense...

With vampires and werewolves.

I take it this is also horror:

Tales series? Frustrating? Are we even playing the same games? I can't remember that last time I was ever frustrated in a Tales game, either with its battle system, or a part of the game that wasn't an optional boss, and I'm not all that good at games. Maybe the first hour of Xillia, because I had come immediately off of Graces f and expect the same battle system only to get something completely different? That one Early boss in Vesperia that took me 3 or 4 tries to beat because I skipped a few battles along the way? Other than those instances, Tales games have been pretty easy, so long as you know what you're doing instead of just mashing the buttons, and fight every enemy you encounter so you're the appropriate level. Maybe I'll still die a few times at bosses, but I expect that and don't really get frustrated by it.

And I don't really agree with the dialogue part. That's purely preference, but half the reason I play Tales games is just to read the dialogue and see the interactions between the characters. It goes a long way in making the games a fun, memorable ride, at least for me. Though I seem to pay more attention to dialogue than I've seen others do, so take that for what you will.
