Aside from the very obvious choices in the PSone Classics (Chrono Cross, etc.), some good stuff is available:

Jeanne d'Arc - This is one of Level 5's best games.  They have a tendency to bloat their games, but there's none of that in Jeanne d'Arc.  Good, solid, traditional SRPG.

Brave Story: New Traveler - I still find this to be one of the better RPGs on the PSP.  It's very traditional and doesn't to a whole great deal that's outside the box, but it's very fluid and very charming.

Persona 3 Portable - P3 and P4 are great hybrids of traditional RPG dungeon crawling and life sim.  Don't pass this one up.

Yggdra Union or Riviera - These two Sting games are very different, but they're both quality games and will give you an idea about Sting's games and whether or not you're going to like them.

I don't know what the deal is with the composite out, either.  Theoretically, the image should be fine - after all, it's 480x272.  That should be well within composite's ability to handle.  It's nigh unplayable unless you're using component cables.

I like how he's blaming me like it's my fault.  Did Stephen play the voicemail for you of what I sounded like?

Fact: he requested I say "War, War Never Changes."

http://www.amazon.ca/Gigabyte-Mini-Displayport-PCI-Express-Graphic-GV-R787OC-2GD/dp/B007PJVB3Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1363181292&sr=8-1

$250 at Amazon.ca.  They run about $225 in the US, so that seems right.  At that point it's just brand preference.  I like Gigabyte stuff so I have that card (in 1GB form)

So what's your budget?  I'd grab an 7870 if you're looking around $200.  I really like those cards.
52  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Help a Yoda on: March 12, 2013, 04:49:00 PM
You have an X79 board, you can run whatever video card you want.  For you what matters is budget.
53  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Help a Yoda on: March 12, 2013, 03:24:54 PM
OK, yeah, the x16 slot is what you want.  So the best card you can get without external power is, as I mentioned, an HD7750.  It's not going to be an amazing card, but you will be able to run everything you want at decent settings and resolution. 

You can find them for under $100.

I can't see what that's plugged into.  Is it plugged in to a port the size of the port below it?

The reason I ask is that those are PCI-E x1 ports and the 6450 is the best card I can find that fits into an x1 slot.

However, if the slot itself is about 4x the size (a full size x16 port), you should be able to do any video card that doesn't need an outside power connector with your power supply.  That would probably be a Radeon HD 7750.

I won't get to play this until tomorrow, but this is out today!  Kerrigan!

Anyone else going to snag this one?

To quote Jeff Green (a former games journalist for years and now director of community at PopCap):

Lord British has a Kickstarter? The dude lives in a castle and has been to outer space.

I think I said "grinding" and meant a different context - I view most dungeon crawlers as a whole as "grinding" since they're almost entirely combat and exploration.  I didn't mean it in the "oh man I have to fight a bunch of enemies to get past the next thing".  In fact, EOIV has a pretty damn smooth difficulty curve, though things got really easy after I got subclassing - regen w/ active circle for an arcanist made it so I almost never died.
58  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Etrian Odyssey IV announced for 3DS on: March 08, 2013, 03:34:34 PM
OK, I knew this point was coming, but I've finally reached my "OK, I'm done grinding and there's not really a good story in this game" point.  Almost through the third maze, my party is level 42 and I unlocked subclassing.  The game was quite fun while I still had a stomach for it, though.  Definitely worth the money.
59  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Soul Sacrifice on: March 07, 2013, 03:48:56 PM
I got my hands on the first hour or so of the game about a week back.  We'll have a preview up on the site this weekend or early next week.
