Dead Space 3 is awful. Just awful.

I couldn't help but name Steiner, Tinman.

Stealing items from bosses was such a pain in the ass in this game. The steal rate is so ridiculously low.

But Steiner's hilarity makes the game worth it.

Oh man...

I still have yet to beat Dark Souls. I got past that Taurus Demon (3rd boss I think) and pretty much gave up after that. Started a new game the other day and instead of using a mage I'm going for a warrior setup. Now I at least know not to put any points into resistance.

Just wanted to say it worked perfectly and I got all my save data back. Thanks a bunch, John!

Thanks, John. Hopefully it'll work even though I already formatted the new HDD.

So, I'm thinking of buying a PS1 Classic from the PS store and these are the games I've never really played:

Alundra (borrowed it for a few days back in the day, but didn't really play it and have almost no memories of it)
Legend of Dragoon
Threads of Fate
Saiyuki Journy West

Which one's the best in your opinion?

Alundra is best, imo. TLOD is the worst on that list, imo.

Hey guys,

I originally purchased the 80GB fat PS3 from the MGS4 Bundle and recently reached my storage limit. I went to Best Buy later and bought a 1TB HDD that I later put in my PS3, which then formatted the HDD. The HDD works fine, but now I'm left with the original 80GB HDD with all the save data left on it. Is there a method that will enable me to transfer my save data (game downloads, etc.) from the original 80GB HDD onto the 1 TB HDD that I purchased and installed on my PS3? Or is all my save data and previously downloaded content lost and I'll be forced to download them from the PS Store again?

My technical knowledge is pretty basic, but I learn easily once I know what to do. A sales representative at Best Buy told me that I needed to use an HDD docking system, but I tried it and it's not getting my old HDD data onto my PS3, so I need a different method.
Any and all advice is appreciated.

Should be called "Dead Lost Space Gears Planet of War 3"

I replay through RPGs often. Heck, I'll even make a save file right before every boss in a game so I can pick it up and play an awesome battle immediately.

I hate this damn area with the ghosts across the two wooden bridges. D:<

Shame Legaia 2 was terrible.

I kinda liked it.  I couldn't beat it though because the combos got too long, and enemy HP to high which eventually wore me out.

LoL1 was amazing.

I liked Lol2: DS to an extent. It had a lot of crafting options, tons of hidden scenes and gags, awesome mini-games and collectibles, and the music was great. But other aspects of DS just ticked me off. Like the graphics felt really dated and the lines for defining muscle tone looked really weird on characters. Some of the puzzles were ridiculous (like the turtle puzzle in the kabel ruins) and the backtracking was insane. Battle rate seemed higher than in LoL1 as well. And they took out the interactive world map entirely with an instant travel world map, which bothered me. For some reason they also took away see-able armor during battles that were present in the first game, and they had no item that let you instantly warp out of a dungeon like in the first one. Plus the combos in the battle system weren't as fluid. All the Arts blended well in LoL because they transitioned really fast, but in LoL2 they have that matrix zoom-in between every art which got repetitive. Oh, and the story wasn't as dark or interesting as the first, just "let's find out about our special powers while we collect magic crystals!"

LoL's combo system was fun...too bad if you didn't use an art you were just wasting a turn with it. You know, to this day, I never used a fury boost in LoL. Dunno why, it always bothered me though that I would play through and have like 50 or 60 of em sitting around and never used em.

Speaking of fury boosts, I thought it was cool how battle items in LoL were referenced in the canon storyline - like how Songi pretended to take a fury boost in Gala's flashback or how the witch in the cave gives you the Doors of Wind during a mandatory cutscene. There's also a scene where Noa wonders why the Door of Light didn't warp them all the way out of Cort's fortress. Wish more games did that.

But I always used Fury Boosts - I never used elixirs until I started noticing how awesome they were, especially against jerks like that bull in the lava area, Xain.

Legend of Legaia.

It's like Tekken meets Final Fantasy VII. Super duper fun.

Looks like a slow and crappy version of Devil May Cry.

You know what was a big inspiration for the environments in Demon's Souls, according to Takahiro Kaneko? Legend of Legaia.

Awww yeah.
