FYI, Battleborn is MOBA FPS. However Gearbox is not gonna call it like that because of marketing and PR reasons.

Think of how Bungie calls Destiny a "Shared-World Shooter" but you can totally call it a MMO FPS and feel good about yourself because both mean the same thing anyway.

So long as it has a campaign/non-competitive mode, it can MOBA it up all it wants. MOBA's are fun, it's just the overcompetitive jackasses that aren't.

I just want to throw in my two cents and say that I love this site as well. I really wish I posted here more, but the articles and reviews are always a great read. Taelus' Theatrythm review, for example, was especially interesting to read. I really liked how he gave some examples of how Final Fantasy left an impact him. For a game that's riding heavily on nostalgia, that actually really helped me to get a sense for how much he enjoyed the game. I actually don't have much nostalgia for the Final Fantasy series, but I can definitely relate to a lot of those scenes described in the review, albeit with other games.

I especially love the community, though. I know I don't talk enough here, but I love seeing all the discussions people have. There are a lot of intelligent users here, and most of the time people tend to get along well enough. Seems like a lot of people have fun here, too. I don't wanna gush, but I can honestly say this is the best community I've been to, and has been at least since I joined in 2010.

Actually I did miss that news apparently. I am totally guilty of skimming gaming news sites and missing a ton. In truth the only things I really check out thoroughly are the forums here and some weird nutritional/medical sites. Forgive my ignorance/naivety on the PS TV. The fact remains, I am still very excited :)

Ok. Gotta tell on myself. I also have a horrible guilty pleasure of checking the mass of idiocy that gets posted on various Reddits as well.

Oh hey, speaking of which, I apparently missed that Gearbox is making a new game called Battleborn. It's another co-op shooter like Borderlands, but more eccentric and colorful, which is good in my eyes. I guess the competitive mode is more like a MOBA or something, too.  Also it's very pretty.

Rock...et...Pit...

...Well, it was either that or I made a Rocketeer reference...

Bungie's definitely got a great sound team, that's for sure.
21  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Destiny on: September 15, 2014, 11:15:32 AM
I kinda enjoyed it solo, but I say that about every mmo. Though the two times I played MMOs with someone else I'll admit I enjoyed it a lot more...that was forever ago, though...

Once you get to Alabasta, it'll be easier to take it in chunks, just an arc or 3 at a time. That's what I did at least.

Was it right after waking up? Could be low blood pressure.

I guess. Other than my right hand always being cold, I've always been told by my doctors that my blood pressure was pretty swell...maybe it was just that morning my blood pressure was really low for some reason? I dunno...

On a completely unrelated note, I remember once I peed for a long time, and then I went blind for a few minutes immediately afterwords. I finally decided to look into whether or not that ever happened to anybody else.

Apparently not. What the hell, man???

Um...don't you usually heat up coffee, then wait for it to cool? Because then they might have been, you know, not ready to drink it yet when they spilled it?

*Sigh* So Nintendo Life has been going to pot, VC-Forums went kaput, and now it looks like AnimeNation Forums is in danger since it was part of an online store that finally closed its doors and now there's no one to pay for the servers. I mean, it seems the community there is trying to figure out what to do, but there's a chance this could be my last safe haven on the internet. Not that there's anything wrong with this place, but I was used to browsing several different forums...and I hate looking for new forums. It's so hard to find decent communities. I've tried so many different places over the years, but only 4 sites ever worked out, this one included...I'm not looking for another anime forum, either. I tried at least 10 of them, almost all of them were terrible, except for AN...I do need a more general video game forum to suppliment this place, though. I've checked all the main sites I know of and a lot of them had terribly designed forums...if they even had one at all. Guess I'll have to look for dedicated forum, but that'll be much harder to sort through...

Not sure if it's worth looking for a retro forum, though. Retro gamers tend to be either jaded, elitist, or both. VC-Forums was more for people looking to rediscover old classics rather than your usual retro collector crowd. Not sure if I want to hang out with pirates, either...

Der Jermanismus,

Any idea if patched VC3 is playable on a VitaTV?

Fairly certain it's not since Sony's been putting some serious effort into making sure the Vita doesn't get hacked and pirating software isn't a thing.. Heck, I think the 3DS has been hacked more than the Vita by now...

Anyways, only got a chance to play the Smash demo and Destiny today. Both are way more fun than I ever expected, though. Smash especially seems deserving of the hype.

Okay, I rented the PS3 version from a Redbox and played the Tutorial mission and the first actual mission. I'm enjoying it. Not blown away, but it makes a good first impression. And I don't completely suck at it! That's a plus. I mean I died a lot on the Boss, but that's because I kept running out of ammo. I chose the pulse rifle because I suck at aming, but I guess it's pretty weak because It basically took all my ammo to take down the boss...also, I didn't get to punch him in the face. That was pretty disappointing.

I'll probably play some more in the morning before I return it, but I'm definitely looking forward to playing it in a month or two when I can hopefully buy it (preferably at a lower price point).

I did that last time I played, Mesh, which is partly why I'm starting over. =P This time I'm putting emphasis on the mages. Tao is actually my highest-leveled character right now. Even her staff does major damage against weaker monster now, like the bats or archers.

I'll be playing more Shining Force soon, but I decided to try my hand at Ys IV: Dawn of Ys and Dragon Quest VIII, both of which I've been putting off for way too long, and both of them really impressed me. I find it hard to believe Dawn of Ys wasn't made by Falcom. It definitely has the feel of an Ys game to me thus far. Heck, the beginning of Mask of the Sun seemed far more phoned in, yet that was considered canon for a while...

Also, the music's great. I wish I understood the dialogue, though. Guess I'll have to follow a translation on my iPad next time I play.

Not as much to say about DQ8 other than it also feels just as great as the other DQ games despite being made mostly by Level 5. Only got through the first dungeon, but I think I'll stick around for a while longer.

BTW, I love how you can get the boomerang early on! Makes those early battles a breeze.

Shining Force is longer than I remember it being, but I still like it. I'm halfway through Chapter 2 now. I don't remember half these fights. I do remember everything being harder than this, but then again, I played it back when concepts of "equipment" and "levels" were foreign to me. Also, enemies are smarter than I forst thought. They don't just rush you, they try to trap you and get you in a position where they can hurt you and then their buddies can come in for the kill. Definitely more intelligent than I thought they were doing at first.
