"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...

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.

I'm thinking of playing through a couple Final Fantasy games soon, but I can't decide which one to start with:

Final Fantasy IX - Do I want to do the best one first?

Final Fantasy V - Do I want to get my favorite done first?

Final Fantasy VII - Do I get the most famous one done first?

Final Fantasy XII - This might be the cheapest way to scratch my MMORPG itch...with bonuses, hopefully...I just don't know if I should wait for a remake?

Final Fantasy X - I think my brother would like this one, so we could play it together. I'd need to get the PS3 or PS4 version, though...

Final Fantasy II (PSP) - or do I get the oldest out of the way first?


Please note I've started all of these games to some degree (I'm just terrible at finishing games), though most will have to be restarted.

My current F2P MMO is Echo of Soul published by Aeria. I've always appreciated how Aeria handles their freemium content, so that's the first plus. The game is a pretty standard MMO but the production value considering it's F2P is pretty fantastic. Honestly, the only problem is the combat which is fun, but it tries to combine fast-paced reactionary combat with an archaic hotbar UI making the controls a little wonky and the advanced boss battles incredibly frustrating.

It sounds neat, but I ended up having to pass. I guess I wanted something I want something different as far as Classes go and didn't realize it until I started looking around. I'm wondering if I should sign up for the Wildstar closed beta...in the meantime I found Hex: Shards of Fate in my bookmarks, and that's been alright so far. Enough to entertain me, at least.

Stories: Hidden Paths is an action-RPG with multiple choices that changes the story in real-time, including the narration. It also has a foxy protagonist. It certainly has my interest.

Speaking of my interests, if you have a PS4, you can vote for the next free PS+ game from now until August 24th. The current choices are Grow Home, Armello and Zombie Vikings....I certainly would be extremely happy if you vote for Armello....or don't. Your choice.

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...

I never played RE2, so I'm more excited about this REmake than any other.

<- been playing his Vita all day

But that Valkyria Chronicles mod sounds cool...

Why is it that whenever someone makes a rebalance mod, it makes the game harder?

Because usually an RPG is balanced in favor of the player...these mods exist in games where there is usually one tactics that trumps everything, which makes the game less fun. In this case, it seemed that the game was almost balanced for that one tactic, making it more frustrating to play different ways. So they changed it to force players to utilize other tactics and (hopefully) making the game more fun in that regard.

...I wish I could show this patch to a guy I know who kept complaining about VC's lack of difficulty. He was playing the PC version, too...
