Now I just tried out Tales of Rebirth, just to try out the PS2 emulator. It worked out well, very few hiccups. Would be nice if I knew what was going on, though...but at this point, I'm more likely to teach myself intermediate Japanese before the ToR fan-translation is finished...

Figured while I'm at it I'd see how Tales of Destiny - Director's Cut plays, and I'm glad I did...since it required a cheat patch in order for it to not freeze during the FMVs. Not a patch from the guys who made the emulator or in any way involved with that project, mind you. Just a random fix some guy made that fixed this problem. Except he made it 3 years ago. And I have the latest version of the emulator. Meaning the guys who actually work on the program never bothered to fix it despite someone else fixing it years ago. And they are at least aware of it, because I found out about the fix on their forums...dating back to 2012.

*Sigh*

At least I'm having fun now. I really like the battle system in the Director's Cut. I look forward to knowing what's going on in the story, though, since they seem to have changed a couple scenes thus far (and there's a Lion's Route now, which I really want to try). Oh well, unlike ToR, ToD-DC's Fan-Translation is actually getting some slow-but-steady progress, so it might be in a playable state within a reasonable time. Until then, I might go back to the PSOne version I have sitting on my shelf...I was enjoying that.

Plus I still got Final Fantasy V to play. I haven't totally forgotten...

KONAMI heritage games survey (IP awareness) -- NeoGAF

This is a (allegedly) legit survey.

Weird the Silent Hill wasn't even a choice.

Also, what is Sunset Riders? EDIT: Something that looks really cool Fffff

Played Hex: Shards of Fate, and it was easily the worst freemium card game I've played. But at least I got an all-wolf deck right from the getgo, so I'm satified.

2YR - Halley Labs (Dave Remmler)

I just realized that one dude has put out well over 100 albums in less than 10 years (albeit under 20 different names)...that's pretty insane...

"slighty-dated presentation"
I think it looks gorgeous.
I wonder if we'll ever be at a point that it won't matter if a game looks (potentially very) dated, if it looks really pretty.

I was standing next to Derek as he played it at E3, and the graphics were far less pretty in the area we were in than those screenshots shown. There wasn't anything wrong with them, just the environment was a bit bland. Don't get me wrong, it still looks good (reminds me of Celceta on Vita), but it's a fair mention.

I know this is an old post, but Kiseki was probably built with the Vita in mind, so the environments were gonna take a hit no matter what. Kinda why I'm probably not gonna play it on a big TV...

PC and PSP actually. Vita's been getting the Evolution ports which we will not be getting for reasons of having to start from FC all over again, and this series has been enough of a pain in the ass to localize to begin with.

I though Trails of Cold Steel was the first one designed for the then-newer platforms (PS3 and Vita)?

Huh, so Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' was at the Spectrum 8 in Albany...and they're having an encore showing on Monday...I might try to get in on that if I have the time...

I saw it. Was great, as good as the last DBZ movie. A little more light-hearted than I expected, but that just made it better, IMO.

Last night was my first time DMing. And I needed to constantly remind myself not to take the sudden but inevitable deaths of the monsters I'd set upon the party of adventurers so personally. RIP 4 Goblins, 1 ghoul, 1 orc, 1 hobgoblin and most of all RIP to you giant spider (I'd named him Webbly right before he took the War Hammer to the cephalothorax that killed him)


Mickey: Post what games you have for sale (or a link to them).  I wouldn't mind browsing.  I suspect I'm not alone on that here.

I'd need a Paypal account to sell anywhere online, which...I have, but I never gave them my SS Card, so they won't let me do anything with it...guess I'll do that...

Anyways, neat that you're DMing. Are you playing with friends or at some sort of group?

FUUUUUCKKK YOOOOOOUUUU WAAAAKKKAAAAAAAAA....

I don't even need the context for this, it;s still a good quote in general. =P

I kept reading that as "personal landmines"...

We just got rid of our landline, along with our cable. It saved us some money, but it's been hard work changing everything that had that old number...

EDIT: ^Wow, that whole paragraph needs a total rewrite, it sounds like I'm 1) involved in the development of Armello and 2) I'm threating to get you to vote for it. I just meant Armello has furries in it and I don't want to pay $20...

Actually, your original post just made you come off as a massive goddamn furry instead of your new post which makes you come off as a massively passive-aggressive goddamn furry.

I take offense! I am a very forwardly aggressive goddamn furry!



En Garde! We fight to the death!

Went through some of my stuff and found a bunch of stuff to get rid of (hopefully by selling):

A bunch of birthday cards (well I'll recycle them...)
3 books
6 movies
16 video game guides
60 video games

I still have more things to go through tomorrow (including more games), but this is very, very painful...I am a packrat. This goes against my nature. But I need money and more importantly space...

Edit: just added 19 games to the pile.....I wonder if anybody will take magazines....

Wow, even the PS3 versions looks surprisingly decent, all things considered. I'd have to see the comparisons in motion, though.

As always, though, if you have a decent PC, it'll look best there. Someday I'll get a new Graphics card...someday...

Oh yeah, I've almost beaten FFX before and was pretty damn sick of it by the end. But that was years ago and I did a lot of things to make things harder for myself...

No FFVI? (Or did you play that one already?)

I played it and I hate it. In fact, it's the only Final Fantasy I genuinely don't like from what I've played - I've put in 10 hours at least in every one except 9, though I've only ever finished Final Fantasy 1, 3, and 13...hey wait a minute...anywaus, that list were just the games I actually wanted to play.

So I guess I'll follow Aeolus' advice and start with FFV Advance. It really is the braindead answer. Now that I think about it, I remember enough and I'm already halfway though. I could finish it in a week if I stick with it this time. Then I'll go with FFX if my brother wants to watch (he won't be able to play), otherwise I'll go to VII.
