Unfortunately, at least and especially here in America we have to certain extent become commercial sheep. We buy what we are told, like what we are told and dislike pretty much everything else. Of course there are the exceptions (the rebels), but for example my office has @60 employees. I know ten or so who consider themselves (relatively) avid gamers. And without fail they all bought COD and Madden the day they came out, mention Catherine and while they may have heard about it's not on mass market advertising so they don't care/notice. Actually they all say I play all "those weird Japanese games". Now, I wonder what would have happened if something with more innovative gameplay was blitzed across the media like COD was...would we (the rebels) declare it mainstream and uninnovative suddenly because all the sheep liked it lol...or would it quickly be copied by every other developer and become as commonplace as the seemingly constant stream of FPS/TPS battle clones are now.

OK...the platforming aspect of Oath in Felghana is getting a tad old.

I was thinking as well after I fell for the 50th time trying to cross a narrow ledge in the Elderm Mountains. I eventually made it across and ended up fighting some dragon boss. I died after getting it to about 1/3 of it's HP, then turned it off for the night.

Oh, it gets worse, much, much worse, just wait until Valestein Castle and The Clock Tower, seriously, these parts may be the games demise for me, it's simply ridiculous that if you fall you may indeed fall ALL the way to the bottom and have to do it all over again for the umpteenth time.

Trained a new girl today, I give her two weeks, actually hope I'm wrong though.

OK...the platforming aspect of Oath in Felghana is getting a tad old. Ar Tonelico just gets funnier and better all the time and I picked Pangya back up, kinda forgot how much fun that game is.

Zirduros, The Clockwork Cannon in Oath in Felghana was no freaking joke!

After looking at the Witcher 2 screenshots... yeah, I don't like them much either. It's not that they're ugly, but to me it enters uncanny valley. I have the same problem with games such as Mass Effect. I can't play them without thinking that there is something not quite right with the people on the screen.

So yeah, I'd rather look at anime-style visuals or cutesy sprites.

Actually I kinda know what you mean. While the more "realistic" looking games are leaps and bounds beyond what older games looked like, even Uncharted, for instance, still isn't totally representative in movements, both facial and otherwise, to real life. And to a certain extent it's almost like looking at chimps, yeah, they look and act like us but there's still that noticeable difference (a somewhat stretch yes, but still I hope you get my point). While the games which are more anime style the portrayal is less an attempt to look realistic and thus to a certain extent maybe even more "believable" as you focus less on the physical nuances, or lack thereof, and more on the personality and voice. Having said that, while typing this I did wonder if I'd feel the same if Drake looked more like Jaster....now I've confused myself.

Well...that's if she even wants a Limited Edition. I decided to sell my PS2 and games. I'm thinking about doing the same with my PSX games, but I don't know how to get rid of them and make a decent amount of money off of them since most are on PSN or ported to PSP I think. May try to sell them here for a couple bucks but I suspect most people that would want them here already have them (PSX Squaresoft RPGs mostly). Wanted a new game to fill the gap from GTAIV since all my other games are RPGs. Thought about gteting Assassins Creed but ultimately decided on LA Noire. Hopefully it is worthwhile. Used the rest of the money toward Catherine. Don't want to spend $60 on the game and I'm hoping a few trade ins will diminish the cost a bit, but I guess we'll see next week. Really I probably wouldn't even touch the game for some time anyway.

As Yoda said likewise, anything you want to sell he doesn't want first let me know. I'm always looking for PS2 games my son doesn't have and PSX neither of us has. And I'd rather buy from someone here than an EBAY'er whom I have no idea where or how they got/treated the game.

SOB! For three days I have wandered around in the Elderm Mountains (Ys: Oath in Felghana) trying to figure out why I couldn't trigger the boss battle against Ligaty, The Three Flying Succubi AKA the flying harpy sisters, finally went back to the village and spoke to EVERYONE, guess I missed the mayor the first time! ARRGGG!!! On the flip side, I beat the boss battle in less than 2 freaking minutes I'm so leveled up, lol. Now, on with the game, lol. And for the record, Ar Tonelico so far = awesome fun! And Saiyuki is more challenging than I thought it would be but I'm still having fun, just one mission at a time.

I consider myself somewhat of a "new kid" and I agree with what has been said so far. I thought I knew a decent amount about games until I came here and I seriously enjoy the various disagreements even on games I'm unfamiliar with, and then discussions I do want to join in I feel I can express my opinion without fear of being truly flamed, disagreed with perhaps but not disrespected.
