I call horseshit on the puny sizes here.

You should have said 'puni', because that would have been eh.. puni? Barrel!

I had a size S once. It was a GBA one with the text 'Wil je met me linken?' (Do you want to link with me?). Other than that it's always L-XXL. Oh, and I got some yoga pants from Sony for some reason. Size L. Donated them to charity, then felt kind of bad about it, because they were poorly made and hideous.

The real question is why does S-E announce these games so early?

Because they want/need the media attention? Kinda like an anorexic wants to be told she isn't fat?

Oh no, don't get me wrong, I'm not arguing its good..... I'm just saying I like it... LoL... Hence my little explanation of how for some reason I enjoy that awkward "curl your toes and cringe" sort of stuff in J-Pop, J-rock, and anime... No, I don't expect many others would appreciate it though...

I understand what you're coming from. There's nothing wrong with some awkward English, in a way it can be kind of endearing, but I think it only works in fun songs with a lot of energy (totally listening to Let's Go Gekiganger 3! right now). The Graces song is, like Dice said, just kinda sad and blah. And sure, BoA's singing in English, but there's no confindence in it.

Anyhow, when they pull off kids without the cheese, I give it a thumbs up.

That's true. And they seem to grow up into decent adults as well. I just don't like looking at them. The graphics are great, but the actual designs are too over the top.

Ugh yeah, all those starving girls... 41 kilo and 155cm? At the age of 16? That's just not right... It's like they all have toothpicks instead of bones.

Anyway, just finished the kids part. I don't think I like Malik. After 10+ years of voiced JRPG's that voice just screams villain. I doubt he'll turn out to be one of those traitors, but that doesn't mean I want to listen to that voice the whole game. Oh, and he should really buy a new shirt. Pink is not his colour and it clashes to hell and back with the red.

Well, atleast he uses a boomerang. That's kinda cool.

Even as a little brat, I'm finding Asbel far more likable than, say, Luke ever was.  That disturbs me far more than it should.

Yeah, but Luke was supposed to be an annoying brat. Plus, I think many people would have reacted the same way if they were in his situation.

Asbel... I'm not sure yet. All I know right now is that I don't like his main outfit. It's like Final Fantasy drank too much and pucked all over him. Actually, that's how I feel about a lot of the designs. Too many (mismatched) colours, too many buckles, too many ribbons... There's just too much going on.

Isn't Liese a total wreck filled with bugs?

Not that it really matters, Atelier Annie is the only one available in English and it's a fun little game.
1507  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 13, 2012, 03:22:32 PM
I am the only one that is surprised to see a guy that is 40 years in a JRPG? That's what I call a step in the right direction.

Max from Tales of Eternia is 38, IIRC. Jade is 35, Raven too.

If you're in a Tales game and you're over 30, you're probably awesome, so I have high expectations for this new guy I haven't met yet.

BTW I bet the opening song sounds bad in Japanese too, but I guess it's worse when you can actually understand the lyrics...

Here's hoping it's not gag-a-riffic in its presentation of that. XP

Edit: Ow, cringe reflex proved true. Just plugged it in and got hit with a crappy English generic pop 'love' song. >.<

Glad I'm not the only one. I can take a lot from JRPG's. Lunar is probably my favourite title! I sing songs from Rhapsody when I take a shower! But this just made me want to barf.

Oh well, maybe it'll get better. I just need one character who shares my opinion. That's what got me through Star Ocean 3!

(Oh yeah, the night before my copy arrived I had this really creepy Star Ocean 3 dream. Sophia's eyes were eating her face! I wonder if that means something...)

Yeah, one playthrough is only like 15 hours long, but because gameplay is so compact you can do A LOT in those fifteen hours. It's kinda hard to stop playing sometimes. It would be the perfect little handheld game if it weren't so addicting!

I've had my 3DS for a year now, but I haven't really bought anything for it yet.

get the battery pack

adds 10 hours of battery life

Not all that useful if you don't play for more than 5 hours a day and recharge every night. My 3DS is on all day (because I just love StreetPass!) and I can put in a good 5-6 hours of gaming (usually DS-games) before it needs a recharge.

What I would get is some form of protection if you plan on taking it with you. Mine lives in a a DSi sock I got for free once, but there are better (and fancier) options.

As for things to do: start playing StreetPass! It's loads of fun, especially if you live/work in an urban area and lots of people walk by every day. You see, once you've enabled StreetPass, and your 3DS 'meets' another 3DS, the Mii in that 3DS will visit your 3DS. It happens automatically while your 3DS sits safely in your bag. The two main StreetPass games are really simple, but very addicting. One is collecting puzzles, the other one is kind of like a reverse tower defense game with RPG elements.

And keep the game suggestions coming.... I'm compiling a list that seems endless at the moment! AND I'm SUPER EXCITED TO PUT A CHECK AFTER EVERY FREAKIN' ONE I HUNT DOWN!!!! hahahaha

You like your games cute, right? How do you feel about the Atelier series? There's one for the DS called Atelier Annie.
1511  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: GBA and DS guidance needed, absolutely no experience with these handhelds... on: March 10, 2012, 03:57:39 AM
Mondo-thanks for all the great suggestions guys! I think I have drafted up a fair list of titles to start with... I just still can't decide the model to get.... These XL's seem to be the way to go though.... maybe I'll just grab one of them and GBA seperate....



Have you considered a 3DS? It's slightly more expensive than a DSi XL, but you'll be able to play 3DS games as well. It'll save you some money in the long run. The eShop is starting to look pretty decent too.

It doesn't support GBA games, but if you really want to play those, GBA SPs are very cheap nowadays. You should be able to buy one for less than $30.

Someone from a doujinshi circle asked me to crochet a pink monkey and a rainbow turd.

Hey, me too! About an hour ago. I've got 180 points for extra stuff, I wonder what I should spend it on...
1514  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Anime you would most like to see get turned into a new game? on: March 06, 2012, 08:23:49 AM
I want a Basara RPG. It'd be like a shoujo-style Suikoden with a lot of pirates.
1515  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: March 06, 2012, 08:18:12 AM
Yeah, that's pretty much what I've been doing. My hero is like a one-man (and two demon) army with Drain, Mediaharan, Holy Dance | Resist most, Drain physical, Endure | Revive. As long as he can drain, he'll never run out of MP. As long as he as MP his demons will resurrect at the beginning of battle. As long he has demons, who'll shield him (with Shield or a passive skill), he'll won't die. He also has max magic, so he makes things die instead. Even Drain can OHKO!
