Yeah, as much as I loved SPM, I've been itching to get back to the turn-based stuff. I'm a bit iffy on what I'm hearing about the battle system, but I want a new Paper Mario game darn it. They're my favorite series in the Marioverse. Will pick it up Thursday probably.

They... they couldn't fit the whole first trilogy onto a PS3 disc?

They can make more selling them piecemeal. Don't forget that each NES Megaman game came to PS1 individually in Japan, at least Trails in the Sky gives you plenty for, what, $45 or $50 worth of yen?

SCEA would likely take the other extreme and simply bare it from retail release at all and keep the PSN price down to $20 or something.

Well, I get that. XD Doesn't make it any less of a "huh? really?" moment for me.

Well, at any rate, it'd be cool if they did the whole series and XSeed could snag them. Would certainly add to the reasons for me to buy that new PS3 model.

Pretty much. I don't even want to play my copy of Vesperia anymore. Knowing how much is missing would just make it feel incomplete. But, I still know the basic story, and what's done is done, so I'd rather focus on the new stuff. I'm at least happy we got the "definitive" version of Graces.

This is fantastic news. I'm almost tempted to get a PS3 at this point. It's hard to believe that the last Tales game I played was almost 4 years ago already. XD

Yeah, I'm way too used to all the perks of the PC version to dive into this, though being able to play with way less lag would be nice.

I dunno, I always liked to think of Ben Franklin as incredibly vulgar for some reason. XD

Anyway, Wind Waker was odd in that, at least one one level, it was one of the most open Zeldas. AFTER the awkward stealth bit, you really can sale to a fucklot of places (whether you have the patience for this is arguable, mind). There's just not much to find though. A bunch of generic floating orc platforms with... nothing. There's not even an interesting collectible sidequest. I LIKED finding skulltulas and gold bugs in OoT in TP. WW had butterfly medallions that didn't seem to serve a purpose?

I believe you had to get to Dragon Roost Island first to actually get the Wind Waker and the melody that controlled the wind's direction, and while you're there you might as well complete the dungeon to pick up the Grappling Hook so that you can actually do stuff beyond sailing around aimlessly.

And that was a problem I had with WW outside of the complete lack of difficulty. Exploration consisted mostly of sailing around. Once you got to an island you might be able to do a couple of things there (provided you're far enough into the game to have the dungeon items necessary to access or accomplish the task) and then you were done with it for the rest of the game. When I first went into that game I was hoping for a couple really large islands that you could sail to that made even the starting island feel small and isolated, and then it turned out that Outset was the biggest non-dungeon island in the game. Sure you get to visit Hyrule, but all that really consisted of was a Castle, a Tower, and the corridor in between.

Ugh. Yeah. I remember a few months before the game had come out, I had heard a rumor that Outset Island was one of the smallest islands in the game. What a shit rumor that turned out to be. If we ever got a land-overworld as big as that ocean, with a lot to explore in it, that would be the greatest Zelda ever.

One thing I also wish WW had kept was the fire and ice dungeons that had been relegated to small caves in the final version, and the dungeon to get the third pearl. I usually enjoy Zelda games more when they have at least 8 dungeons.

At the end of the day... I thought it was pretty bad.  Try saying that to a Zelda fan though.  I got reamed out here for saying it a few times.

Find Zelda!
Now prove yourself by getting the flames!
Now get the song of the hero!
Get the Triforce!
I guess you've done enough, okay, go after Ghirahim now!

Worst offense: you can't even fucking go fishing wtf.

No, no, I definitely am with you on this. I was so underwhelmed and disappointed by this game, and hell, I'm not sure why considering I even liked TP when that first came out. If you complain about the horrid controls, suddenly they tell you that no, the controls aren't bad, you just suck at the game. XD The whole thing just felt like same old same old, and I played so many better games with less stiff controls last year that SS felt very old when it came out. Hell, Windwaker had better camera control. The guide was annoying as hell with the percentage thing, and the dungeons felt really lacking.

I might give it another go, someday, but I haven't really liked Zelda since Minish Cap. Everything after just hasn't really done it for me.

I might actually pick this one up. I spent last summer on a really odd Mario Party kick, and I'm kind of curious on how they've changed things up now that they've given the titles some breathing room. Didn't it used to be one per year or something?
131  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 02, 2012, 03:17:22 AM
No PS3. D:

But I love this series so much. Might buy one just to support it, get a PS3 down the line, yadda yadda.

I expected French Revolution, but this is awesome too! That box art... is beautiful! *_*
133  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 on: February 27, 2012, 08:35:20 PM
A younger, teenage me would have bought that game. But I've learned over the years to not be fooled by pretty anime box art. XD

Why make a Pokemon Grey and when you can double the profit with a full-blown sequel in two more versions?  XD

Well, as much as Unova as a region bores me, I did like the story, so it will be nice to see if this brings N back into the fold and shows what he's up to. And it looks as if Reshiram and Zekrom have fused with that Kyuurem (I can't remember the spelling).

In addition to what Fadedsun said, I love the soundtracks to this series and the artwork is really pretty too. EO3 pre-order artbook ftw.

It's just a fun series to waste time with when I can't think of anything else to play.
