Still replaying Tales of Vesperia. I'm halfway through and the secret missions are going well. Raven is awesome! I enjoy playing as him and his AI saved my butt a bunch of times. He completed secret mission 12 all on his own while Nan (the last one standing) had only 2000 HP left. The best part? He used a normal attack, not a combo or base arte, just one normal attack. It worked because he is awesome.

Yeah, but I doubt my level is high enough. I think I'll do some sidequests first. Do some guild jobs, get a new outfit, learn how to make better pancakes, let my sister's dog pee all over the neighbourhood...

Yeah, but I'm sure your modem doesn't hate your guts. I'll connect it if I have to or really want to. Right now I just don't have a reason to. There isn't anything in the PlayStation Store I really want and I don't feel the need to play online.

DS and Wii online

Then you should have absolutely no problems at all with hooking up a PS3/360 online. I had a lot of trouble connecting my Wii online, and to this day I've never successfully got my DS online, but the PS3 and 360 were simple. Then again, if cables aren't an option, then I wouldn't know.

DS is easy: wireless and WEP. Which is one of the reasons why Experia sucks so much. Higher encryptions don't function properly. Weird things happen if you attempt to use WPA2. I had to call to the helpdesk, but all the tech did was accuse my laptop of frequently accessing the net using other modems. Experiaboxes don't like it when computers leave the house and meet new networks. In the end I had to switch to WEP.

Anyway, maybe I'll get Xbox 360 and PS3 online when I really feel te need to. Maybe when the weather gets better. My last big Experia adventure involved sitting in the freezing cold while trying to reason with the angry and irrational god inside my modem. I'm surprised my laptop held out.

A hassle?  Really?  Achievements/trophies aside (which I already stated my opinion on), it's pretty trivial to connect your console to the internet and you're missing out on a ton of great downloadable games.


It's an Elite model, so that means buying that extra thingy. Cables aren't really an option, since the modem is located slightly outside of my house. Also, rabbits. The second problem is that the modem is an Experiabox. It's an evil, unlogical piece of shitty hardware. You do not want to know what I had to go through to get the laptop, DS and Wii online. Tales of Experia is a horrible game and I'm not going to replay it unless I absolutely have to.

I couldn't care less about trophies and achievements. Back when I lived with my parents, I used my brother's Xbox 360 and didn't bother with making my own account. After moving out I bought my own Xbox 360, but it's not even connected to the internet. The PS3 is offline as well. Hooking them up is just too much of a hassle.

1522  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Support your local game store! on: February 20, 2011, 02:34:48 AM
My local gamestore is DimensionPlus (also called the DimPlus). Good selection, prices range from reasonable to cheap and the people are... welll, nice isn't the right word. They're very helpful and know how to deal with idiots. They get shit done.

Another gameshop I like is Castle Gameshop. Great selection and the service is awesome. They also have one of the nicest stores I've seen. It's clean and light but still has a real game store atmosphere. It's in Deventer though, so I go there was a year at most.

Both are very different from the soulless corporation called Game Mania. They're cheap, sure, but that's mostly because they excel at screwing customers over. You can return opened games within seven days and get your money back, sure, but that's mostly because they sell games that don't actually work. I bought a used Tales of Vesperia there, because I couldn't find it anywhere else. It didn't work. I returned it, they tested it in the store, saw it didn't work and put it back on the shelves the next day. That wasn't the first time something like that happened.

Another store I absolutely hate is Game Over in Amsterdam. The owner is an immature and petty dick. At Aniway, a Dutch forum for animefans and gamers, he tried to sell some junk from his store. There rules over at Aniway are very clear: stores are not allowed to use the Buy/Sell/Trade subforum. Anyway, he opened three topics to sell his 'personal collection', which mainly consisted of stuff like eleven copies of Daikatana and fifty FIFA's. When I pointed the rules out to him, he said he was going to call the police, because this was clearly slander. The mods laughed, deleted his topics and banned his ass forever and ever. I'm going to mention his name here, Simon Hofgeest, because he's known to google his own name and register at forums to respond to anyone and everyone who says something bad about his store. Ah, the stores the internet has to tell about this guy...

The good: going for a walk

The bad: it started to rain and I didn't have my umbrella with me

The ugly: this thing I saw...

999 is so addicting. Three days, three endings and I'm going to aim for an ending a day for the next three days. I love it. I haven't had this much fun in a long time! I just wish they didn't screw up celsius/fahrenheit the whole time. 107 degrees fahrenheit does not equal 75 degrees celsius. There is a huge mistake in the intro as well. They give the player a fancy calculator, but can't be bothered to do some proper calculations themselves? That's lazy :/

Last Night I dreamt the library was invaded by very slow moving manequins, and in order to stop them, we had to engage in turn-based combat with makeshift spatulas.

Was it ATB? I hope it wasn't ATB. I hate ATB in dreams. Controls become all sluggish, the enemy moves faster and faster and then you die :(

I prefer realtime, because I love to spam arrows and magic. The only downside is that is sounds silly if you have to shout the names of the spells. IceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceIceFire3!

Sure, I've got two DVD-players, but one is my PlayStation 2 and the other one is my other PlayStation 2. Oh and I guess the PlayStation 3 counts as well, so that makes three. NTSC U/C PS2 and PS3 are currently hooked up to the TV. PS2 plays my region 1 anime DVD's, PS3 takes care of the rest. Why hook up another player if these two are doing a pretty good job?
1528  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Nintendo 3DS Launching at $249.99 on March 27 in the US on: January 19, 2011, 02:42:41 PM
$250 = 250 euro

Fuck you!

Don't forget about those lovely region locks.

I'm going to buy one, but only because I have to. And I'm totally going to write it off as a business expensive.

I have had weird crossover dreams, like Xenosaga meets H2G2. Arthur and Allen got along really well, but chaos fled and locked himself in the bathroom when someone asked him to make tuna sandwiches for everyone.

Other dreams are really weird. I had one about the Lego levels in Mario land 2. Except it wasn't really a level but more like a dystopian society ruled by the pigs. The pigs ate people.

There was also the Atelier ??? dream. I loved that one, because it was so cohesive and vivid. Just walking through town and looking at the shop windows was so much fun. The alchemic items looked really pretty.
