I just realized how quickly this game is approaching and I have yet to get to XIII-2. Looks like it will be time to pop that in soon... I know this is not the right thread to be bringing up XIII-2 but how much of a departure from XIII can I be looking forward to? Also I heard really mixed things about how long the game is. If I get started on XIII-2 by mid december (gotta finish what I am playing now) will that be long enough to comfortably get through it in prep for lightning returns?

Ok, all I gotta say without becoming spoiler-ific is the final boss is FREAKIN' CHEAP!!

"Difficult spike" does not do it justice... I was over-powered to a point that enabled me to literally one hit everything in the final chapter yet could hardly touch the final boss. I like the fact that there is some challenge here but while the rest of the game had me thinking whilst grinding, this scenario has me STRICTLY grinding. I also feel like the final chapter's maps were rushed in contrast to the rest of the game.

All and all I loved D2 to be honest. In spite of its apparent faults, it struck the right chords with me. But I WILL NOT defend the nose dive the final chapter takes. The main campaign is coming to a close that feels very abrupt and "out of place" IMO. Maybe I will feel wee bit different once I actually beat the final boss and see the ending but I doubt it.

I also ordered stuffs from Klyde and was more than satisfied with the stuffs arrival, despite his overzealous use of tape =P

I aim to please! :)

Sorry about the tape.... LoL

Also, they were delivered in a lovingly packed PINK box.

I was hoping you would appreciate my extra special packaging for you! LoL

Getting fed up with Disgaea D2. The game freezes up so often that it has become virtually impossible to continue. Right now I'm stuck at 5-1, because the enemy's Giga Fire freezes up my PS3 every single goddamn time! I've played shitty shovelware with bothersome bugs than this...

Man, I've been reading about that and have been lucky I suppose. 9-4 and not one freeze yet. These old launch model ps3's run like magic I tell ya!

What could be the reason that a game could cause bugs on one system and not another I wonder....?

Item world-ing in D2 til my eye-balls hurt today. Too obsessed with powering up new character classes when I can create them.... all too compelling. Currently in chapter nine as far as the plot goes. A seemingly sharp difficulty spike prompted my item world grinding and now I can't stop!!

As much as I am enjoying disgaea, it will be exceedingly refreshing to return to Wind Waker once I finish the main plot (taking a breather before tackling post-game).

I'm gonna be bold and say D2 is my favorite disgaea thus far. Although my recall of the original disgaea is hazy, I can safely say I am enjoying this more then 2, 3 or 4. The cast and plot are far weaker than the original but the gameplay just feels so improved. The only ps3 strategy title that hooked me as well as this was x-com.

Klyde is mobile again folks!! Thanks to the aid of some of you fine peoples buying my wares, I was able to snag new wheels today. A cute little 99 saturn. Now I just need to hit up decalninja.com and get a 16-bit bumper sticker of Edgar riding a chocobo and I'm set!

Sorry to double post, but I have PM'ed everyone who has shown interest and just wanted to remind everyone/anyone else that I will be moving these items to e-bay as early as tomorrow so get in touch quick if you want anything.

I always thought that getting all trophies takes a lot of the "fun" from any game.

Completely agree there. That's why I have almost no platinums.
There is always at the very least 1 trophy that is just zero fun at all to get.

I figured by now I'd have found at least one game that naturally compelled me to get a platinum but it just has not happened. I'm very much a completionist by nature but unless your playing specifically to get trophies, it just doesn't happen. I am still without a platinum and will probably remain so.

"Completing" a game and getting all the trophies, seem to be two different goals entirely to me... the latter (trophies) feeling more a chore than anything else IMO.

For my "retro-gaming weekend" agenda I decided to give Chrono Trigger another play. I've played it so many times I feel like I could hand draw most dungeon maps from memory if I had to and yet I still love every minute I spend with the game. Just got through Heckran's (sp?) Cave.

Its funny.... I notice for some odd reason it is way easier to sit down for a multi- hour gaming session when I do these "retro" games on the weekend. I don't know what it is about older 16 bit era titles, but they hold my attention without my mind wandering for longer periods of time it seems.

Messaged you back... I think?

Got the message... *tag* your it!! LoL

Also, I had to edit the Suikoden bundle. I don't have the heart to sell 2. Although I know this was the primary draw of the bundle, taking out 2 does reduce the price by over 100 bucks. If anyone REALLY had their heart set on it though, let me know I may reconsider.

Klyde - Wow you made those?  They are pretty cool.

A year or two ago I actually had a thread here in general discussion where I posted my creations. They have evolved a bit since then but yes, they are my little monstrosities. I make more of them then a I can stomach (due to demand) to be honest with you... I have routine clients that buy them for the holidays so the volume I turn out always goes up this time of year. I'm grateful people like them but unlike tattooing, which is pretty much all fun for me, these little creatures are TEDIOUS to craft!! LoL

Klutz, you have been messaged.

Additionally I just updated.... added Suikoden bundle, Xenoblade and Skies of Arcadia Legends.

I've turned off every security setting/protection/restriction/blocking thingy I could find and I am using firefox. The problem appears in BOTH internet explorer AND firefox browsers.

So... ummm.... I wrecked my car and need to buy a new one. Head on over to the bazaar to check out the goodies I'm selling to help fund the wheels.

Ouch man - that sucks. Good luck with the sales and getting a new car.

Yea, I'm lucky actually. If the dynamics of the accident were a bit different, it could have proven far more "Ouch-ee".... LoL
