31  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: GBA and DS guidance needed, absolutely no experience with these handhelds... on: March 08, 2012, 10:12:26 PM
If you like old-school (NES era actually), you should probably check Retro Game Challenge for the Nintendo DS. There are a few NES-inspired games, including a Dragon Warrior-inspired RPG.

They have already been cited, but both the Mario & Luigi and Golden Sun series are great RPGs that are colorful and don't take themselves too seriously, that have entries on both the GBA and DS (Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is one of my favorite titles overall for the DS).

And I agree with Bytor: Magical Starsign and Avalon Code are also great titles, again colouful and not too serious (especially Magical Starsign actually).

Also, as you stated you liked Suikoden, you should probably take a look a Tierkreis on DS... I know it's a bit controversial among fans of the series, but I personally enjoyed it.

It's hard for me to escape smoke-smell myself, my dad is worse than a goddamn chimney in Winter.  So I'm happy I got no complaints, sorry if there was a scent.  Esentially only a few zones of my house are smoke-free...my room and my study. =/

There was a minor smell, but it wasn't big enough for me to complain about.  It will fade with time.

Same, it was too small to really be disturbing. Plus, the books are so awesome that it only took a few seconds to stop thinking about it :P But yeah, seriously, it was barely noticeable.

I started playing it this afternoon. I'm not far but it seems fun! I never played the original and heard it was great so I decided to give it a try, as I don't have anything else to play on my 3DS right now (just finished Revelations...). It seems to be some old-school fun like I've wanted for a while! :)

Bought a few games from Klyde Chroma, they actually had a really strong cigarette smell, and I wasn't warned about it beforehand (nor that one of the games cases was broken and didn't hold anymore, and that another one's cover was damaged by water, which wouldn't have really been a problem if it wasn't for the first one). When I raised the problem, I was told the only possible thing he could do is paying for an air freshener. I asked for a return, and I didn't receive any answer for about a week, while he has been regulardly connected since then, so it can't be because he didn't see it. So, I wanted this to end in a good way, but seeing how I'm going to be stuck with stinking games I won't ever play with because of their smell, I thought I had to share my experience here, as I'm obviously angry. It's a shame, too, as I bought stuff from numerous members here and I never had any problem... I saw he added a note on his post after I told him (which means he definitely thought it was worth saying). I'm actually going to sell them back to someone who don't care about it, but it's still a loss of time and money.

If you own Cave Story on Steam, go play it, there's a nice surprise waiting for you! :)
36  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Name a Game that... Remake/Reboot on: December 23, 2011, 05:52:55 PM
1. Illusion of Gaia
I just discovered this game recently, and I liked it a lot. I'd like a remake so more people would enjoy it, plus I wouldn't mind a graphical overhaul "à la" FFIVComplete!

2. The Legend of Zelda : Majora's Mask
I'd be surprised if they didn't remake this one for the 3DS eventually.

3. Phantasmagoria
I still think this game is awesome, but the puzzles are few and easy, and they could have done much more with the storyline. I guess if we could remake this game with today's technology, adding lenght and interesting puzzles, new locations, as well as a longer storyline (maybe we could gain access to Carno's storyline when we complete Adrienne's? Anyway, I feel this is a great game that still as MUCH potentiel, graphically as well as gameplay-wise.

4. FPS
I remember a time where FPS were deeper, with games like No One Lives Forever and the Jedi Knight series bringing new mechanics while remaining quick and fun. Now it seems we have to choose. It's either mindless shooting or deep mechanics but a slow pace. Starting over would be a great time to find a middle formula again.
37  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Direct2Drive transferring on Gamefly on: December 22, 2011, 05:01:42 PM
GameFly is a rental service for games not unlike Netflix.  They're 100% legit and actually quite good.  They're starting to go into the digital distribution world, and apparently now own D2D.  You probably won't see much of a change.  In fact, you'll probably have an increase in service level.

OK, easy peasy: They'll make your account a GameFly account.  If you already have one, like mine, they'll merge them. 

All right, thanks a lot for the info, I really appreciate! :) I guess this might be a good thing after all, as I was suspicious at first!

I just bought a few things from Dice. Prices were more than reasonable, shipping was super fast, the items were all in awesome condition and she was really easy to communicate with, sending answers to my questions fast. It was really a pleasure doing business with her and there was no stress involved in this transaction. So if you intend to buy some stuff from her, I can guarantee you'll be glad you did! ^^
39  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Direct2Drive transferring on Gamefly on: December 21, 2011, 06:54:59 PM
I just received an e-mail telling me that Direct2Drive is moving on Gamefly, although it's not really clear what will happen and I don't really know what Gamefly actually is... Would anybody have more info on any of those (the transfer and/or what Gamefly is)? I guess (hope) I'm not the only one who have a few games on that site, so I'd be curious to know if anybody understood that thing better thant I did. Thanks!

Just received an e-mail telling me that the first clue of the next release is "The game's title begins with the letter 'G'". Guess they're going to announce both after all. Seems ridiculous though :P
41  Media / General Games / Re: Good People Die (animation promo!) on: December 16, 2011, 11:30:14 PM
THere's a used copy of 999 at work ($35 x_X ).... wondering if I should splurge.  :D

I love the title for this game, but I thought the anime opening was worthless.

Well, you just have to look at my avatar to know how much I can recommend this game! Seriously, this is probably one of the best 2-3 games I ever played. I hope the sequel will be as good as the original! I'm not convinced by those 3D sequences yet, even though I guess I'll get used to them when I'll actually play it... IF it comes here, that is, but I'm pretty confident in that...
42  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: December 16, 2011, 11:23:36 PM
Wow. Best Buy Canada must be way better, or I got lucky. My 360 took all of one day to come, then again it only really had to get across town.

I don't normally order online though, I live near so many stores...

Well, actually I forgot to specify, but it WAS Best Buy Canada :P Now I just wonder if it's me that was really out of luck on those orders or if it was you that was lucky that it ended well! :P
43  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: December 16, 2011, 10:29:43 PM
I did some purchases online through BestBuy recently... My Skyward Sword was shipped in an envelope so it was torned and smashed, I called twice and they told me it wasn't their problem twice. I wanted to make a complaint but they refused. I had pre-ordered Dr. Lautrec and it never arrived, I called, they told me it was an error and they're sorry but they won't ever receive it. The guy was good-intentionned and he wrote down my complaint, I told him I hoped Diablo III CE would ship without other problems. Suddenly, one hour later, they cancelled it without any explanation. I'm seriously pissed! Seriously, that's the worst service I ever had, so if you were looking to buy on the BestBuy website, please don't! Sorry, but I just had to share it somewhere, hope this was the right place! :P Just wanted to eventually prevent somebody else to have to go through that...
44  Media / General Games / Re: Naughty Dog's The Last of Us on: December 16, 2011, 07:00:15 PM
Well, I must admit I'm tired of zombies, too, but seriously, this looks great. Though the main reason why I usually hate most zombie things is that they lack any depth. Games like Left 4 Dead and Dead Rising are just plain dumb zombie-killing games, and I find them really boring. But Naughty Dog could beat the others by actually bringing something with interesting characters, good design, immersive world and all to the table. A bit like The Walking Dead was actually interesting for the same reasons compared to other zombie movies/series. Seriously, I'm a zombie-hater, too, but this one looks awesome, and I'm actually glad it's not Uncharted 4, I like it when my favorite studios try other things between two things, a bit like Nolan did between the Batman movies. The Prestige and Inception were still high-quality entertainment, and it didn't mean completely stopping the other series.
45  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: the next big Jrpgs on xbox and ps3? on: December 12, 2011, 10:36:29 PM
Well, there's Tales of Graces F coming out in March too! With FFXIII-2 in January, Tales in March and Xenoblade in April, my console JRPGs need will be satisfied for a while! And there's Atelier Meruru around the corner, too. In fact, I think 2012 is gonna be a good year for us!
