Hope you enjoy Prince of Tennis. IIRC, it can be pretty divisive. (I know it's one of the few anime I've seen that I actively dislike, for instance)

I wasn't sure because I don't think the Download-only version has its own page now. Oh well, I'll have to wait until I get my first pay check before I buy anything, so I'm waiting regardless...

But good to know for those who want it now, of course.

SMT iOS - I beat Superman and Thor and now I'm in the Phantom Zone Diamond Realm. They took away my demons and I'm not sure if I want them back because this place has better demons...but I do want Gu Nao and Flaemis back, those took me forever to fuse and I can't find them. >:[

Also, beat Banjo-Kazooie. Despite some annoyances, it was actually a pretty great game.

Eh, I don't know, they sent me the digital key, I used it, and it works.  Maybe they mean the physical version as April 30th?

They sent the Download codes early, according to their news page: http://jastusa.com/blog/2014/02/14/steinsgate-golden-master-and-other-news/

Not entirely sure if you can get the downloads of the standard edition right away...

Atlus and Index split, new logos and websites launched -- Gematsu



New logo looks casual. P5 confirmed to be as boring as looking grass grow.

OH MY GOD THIS IS WORSE THAN THAT EPISODE OF DR. WHO WHERE KORRA TURNED INTO AN ALICORN AND MADE OUT WITH GAMZEE.

I'll pay you a 1000 digidollars for that quote.

Anyways, I'm glad you guys pointed this out.  Otherwise I would've gone years without noticing the change...which probably says a lot more about my attentive skills than anything else, but whatever.

But butt...the website says it's out April 30th...weird.

An aside: Can anyone recommend an exploration focused-game with a Myst-like feel to it? In the mood for playing in a world I can explore, but with a notebook and pen by my side as I discover things and take notes for potential puzzles. No/limited combat would be good. Just an adventure.

First one that comes to my mind is Fez. It's a platformer, but the challenges require more thinking than skill. Which instantly makes it the best platformer ever in my book. :P But seriously, there are no lives, the check points are frequent, and a lot of it is just trying to explore and collect stuff, with things you have to come back to later, as well as solving puzzles.

Calling it now that KH III doesn't come out until late 2015 in Japan.

Haha, that's being generous! I was thinking that's when FFXV would come out.

I remember once a friend of mine billed Atelier Rorona as a game that "every fan of RPGs should play", and to this day I still don't know what he's talking about. To me at least, Rorona represents the opposite of what I usually look for in an RPG (Adventure, often grand stories, etc), and in fact I can't help but feel that calling it an RPG is somewhat of a misnomer, as I think it feels more like a task-based game with an RPG tacked on. At the very least it's not something I would think every RPG player would find appealing...

See this is my problem. I have two mindsets: Everything is awful and I don't want to do anything, or EVERYTHING IS AMAZING AND I WANT TO DO EVERYTHING.

Ugh, same here. That's why when I do play games, half the time it's just a little of a lot of stuff, instead of just one or two games that I play through to completion...
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Atelier Series on: March 27, 2014, 05:40:14 PM
I just don't like that picking fucking flowers or gems off the ground can amount to DAYS.

This. Seriously, some of the times associated with certain tasks made no sense. Though I hear that's mostly a Rorona problem.

So I found the post at the bottom of this page, and I gotta say, thanks, Annubis! I was hoping to put another Mecha series on the platter. I'm starting to run low on good ones.

Exactly a Month and already 31 pages into this thread. O_O

Anyways, mostly been playing Shin Megami Tensei on the iPad, with a smattering of other games here and there. Might include Wild Arms and maybe Atelier Iris in that smattering soon. Who knows.
44  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Atelier Series on: March 27, 2014, 04:07:04 PM
I played some of Iris, and I loved it.

I played some of Rorona and I hated it.

I really need to play some of Ayesha, since it looks like the best of both worlds, but funds are currently holding me back.

I'm the same; I kinda liked the more RPG-oriented than task and time-oriented gameplay.

I'm terrible with timing anything.... Opera House in FF6? Terrifying.

Yeah, I'm not great with time management and I always find it too stressful. I don't mind the task-oriented part, but it did get tedious after a while and I really wanted to move onto something more grand, but I never got to that point before I quit. If such a point even exists in that game...

I love SMT, and I'm having a great time with the iOS version (Thank God it's based on the GBA version. Actually knowing what demons you'd get from fusing before you actually fuse FTW). Then again, I have no qualms with writing important stuff down, memorizing maps, and going online when I really get stuck. BTW, this version does tell you where stuff is on the map, though you have to get there, first, and I've never actually used the Mapper Spell yet. Not really sure what it even does in this version, actually. EDIT: Oh, it gives you a Mini-Map. That's neat. Though I've already gotten used to looking at the big map and simply planning my routes.

On the topic of Persona 5 becoming more casual, I hope that only applies to the gameplay and not the story. I love the gameplay in SMT, but I honestly think it's the stories that make the Persona games more appealing than games this niche reasonably should be.

...also maybe then I'd actually be able to beat it. Just saying.
