I personally like the PSP 2000 best as far as the screen/visual quality is concerned.... Screw the vita until they make it so I can hook it to my TV!!..... I'm still so upset about that fact.... that is the best part of the PSP for me....

Currently messing around with Star Ocean: Second Evolution and in the early stages of a playthrough of Grandia III.  When I'm done with those I'm going to try and beat Mass Effect 2 again for another save file to load into ME3. 

After my experience with First Departure I need a break before I even look at 2nd Evo.

As for me, I just polished off Growlanser Heritage of War!!! Yippee kay-yay!! All I can say is wow.... I forgot how fabulous this game was... A little on the easy side.... but other then that I thoroughly loved this game.... makes me wanna go back and play 2 and 3 again now...

I finally tried out Hyperdimension Neptunia since the sequel is on the horizon... I know everyone hated this game and I'll agree, it lacks in just about every department.... but I find it entertaining so far..... if only it didn't have that terribly slow and generic battle system they use in Trinity Souls....

Well the next feat is finally laying  Xenoblade to rest. 115 hours or so in..... I gotta be near the end...

Bought a few games from Klyde Chroma, they actually had a really strong cigarette smell, and I wasn't warned about it beforehand (nor that one of the games cases was broken and didn't hold anymore, and that another one's cover was damaged by water, which wouldn't have really been a problem if it wasn't for the first one). When I raised the problem, I was told the only possible thing he could do is paying for an air freshener. I asked for a return, and I didn't receive any answer for about a week, while he has been regulardly connected since then, so it can't be because he didn't see it. So, I wanted this to end in a good way, but seeing how I'm going to be stuck with stinking games I won't ever play with because of their smell, I thought I had to share my experience here, as I'm obviously angry. It's a shame, too, as I bought stuff from numerous members here and I never had any problem... I saw he added a note on his post after I told him (which means he definitely thought it was worth saying). I'm actually going to sell them back to someone who don't care about it, but it's still a loss of time and money.

I wasn't ignoring you.... the air freshener idea was my response... that way we both took responsibility for not have enlightened one another... when you inquired about the condition of the games, nothing was ever brought up about smoking.... likewise I suppose I should have known how much people like to smell their copies of suikoden......

Truth is, I've been burned real bad in this same situation before.... I end up trying to be the nice guy and give a refund and end up with my game cases but some refurbished-crap-disc that doesn't budge from the title screen if it loads at all... But I'll tell you what, since I REALLY didn't think the smell would bother you that bad, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt here... If you can't sell em off to your buddy, send them back to me and let me verify everything is in the same condition I sent it out in. I will refund everything, AFTER I VERIFY THE CONDITION, except for the shipping if everything is swell.... But really, if I got a copy of Suikoden in that good of condition for 20 bucks or so I would take the air freshener....

...... ok sorry about the air freshener thing... I guess I was the only one who found that funny......

NOTE: I suppose it would be appropriate for us the PM it out if we need contact each other further on this particular matter now that we have both expressed ourselves openly about it.

Ok I just need to cry for a moment.... I totally DO NOT have Sherris or Rufus role start saves from ages ago, and now at the end of road here. so to speak, I cannot recruit them..... what a freakin' bummer..... Rufus is my favorite....

Tried to figure out how to use a game save from offline all afternoon... I'm not terribly savy when it comes to this stuff.... but alas, each tutorial I tried failed to work..... So I accept it and move on....

I have a feeling I'm gonna be giving this one another play-through....

On the bright side, I am at the end, and will finally lay this one to rest (for now) by tomarrow I hope! This equates to major closure for Klyde-the completionist.... yes it does :)

Well, I got my hands on a copy of Growlanser Heritage of War, a backlog on mine from 4 years ago!! (Game disc got wrecked).... Let me say, its tough to pick up a title from four years ago and continue.... Really makes you look at all those seemingly useless tutorial menus you never look at in a whole new light... too bad Growlanser doesn't sport any-LoL....

Then there is Xenoblade..... 20 hours ago or so I was sure I was at the end..... fast forward to present, I'm still grinding to get through what I presume to be the final dungeon... but who knows at this point..... Mind you, that was 20 hours void of any optional stuff really.... I love this game to death but I need to lay it to rest already... too many other things on my shelf already, or soon to be added...
1146  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Growlanser Heritage of War: Please help me figure out where to go! on: February 09, 2012, 05:53:44 PM
don't you just have to go to one of your party members in the PMB headquarters, open your item menu, and "use" the friendship medal?

YOU ARE OFFICIALLY ONE OF MY NEW FAVORITE PEOPLE! Yep, that did the trick! And I NEVER would have figured that one out.... maybe it was the obvious next move in 2008 (that was when my save file was from....) but I sure as heck didn't know that now.... I checked my items out too... korin saying "pendant" had me looking something else entirely..... Thank you again :)

NINJA! martial arts expert :)

And Bytor wins!!! Though the career was "Martial Arts Instructor/ Chinese Kickboxer (lei tai fighting)" and not quite "expert"... close enough....

Yes, for 7 years I trained in Pai Lum Tao Gung Fu, Bok Leen Pai Kenpo, Pai Yung Tai Chi and spent 2 years studying some Wing Chun (loosely) and doing full contact chinese kickboxing.... The last 2 years were also spent teaching my primary curriculums which was a practice I fell in love with.... however I developed a horrible thing called an "ego" that got the better of me and starting making some poor decisions in life which eventually led to the undoing of this opportunity for me.... you live you learn I suppose.....

Well congrats bytor! I am in the process of crafting more pieces now, as typically they are all made on an order by order basis at this point because I cannot keep up with the demand.... So be patient with me and as soon as your piece is crafted, I will let you know and ship within 24-48 hours. You pay nothing, I take shipping on the chin so to speak :)

Wild Armor, I'm sorry bytor beat you to the punch.... But fret not my friend, a new contest will begin within a few days! Stay tuned!

If you want to put it that way, Prime Mover, then FF6 was Mudhoney and FF7 was Nirvana. 

Best analogy ever..... Though I'm a way bigger fan of FF6 than I am 7, I would take Nirvana over Mudhoney.....
1149  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade on: February 07, 2012, 04:53:47 PM
Oooooo... I'm really diggin the 4th one.... thats my vote
1150  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Growlanser Heritage of War: Please help me figure out where to go! on: February 07, 2012, 04:51:26 PM
I recall being lost there, but for what it's worth(a summary glance couldn't find the answer, but I'm sure it's there) :


I read that thing through top to bottom.... which is why I'm here..... couldn't find the answer at alll... thats why I really need to help of a growlanser buff to point me in the right direction

Thanks guys, version 2.5 with no glitches for the PSP has been orderred! Gee golly am I excited.... I have played this game since its release! Its one of those experiences I know I enjoyed but has been completely wiped from my memory...
1152  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: February 06, 2012, 01:25:14 PM
Sorry to revive the Tales topic but I need some advice....

I'm in a Tales sort of mood, with Graces on the horrizon and want to pick up Eternia/ Tales 2....... My question is should I go for the PSP Euro import of Eternia or the original Tales 2 for the ps1.... Is there any difference? Should I simply opt for whichever I can procure for a better price? I couldn't find any info online really about comparisons between the two.... only that the PSP version had some bugs fixed and whatnot....

gymnast / ballet dancer

Ohhhhhhhhh really good guess!! But not quite...... as an additional hint for today I will say you are getting warmer

Today's hint (and probably the "dead give away" hint you've been waiting for...) The origins of this practice are believed to be rooted in china but many many moons later became militarized in Japan which reflects its more common and modern day incarnations practiced  stateside.

And for today's post we have "The Professor"!!
1154  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VII 15th Anniversary, Thread of "It has been that long?" on: February 05, 2012, 04:29:04 PM
Its overrated but I can see why people like it.Well no not really I didn't much care for it.

Happy anniversary in any case.

I'm glad to see others share my sentiment.... although I did enjoy it.... I really felt it actually was a step down from 6 and the beginning of the de-evolution of the FF plots into the non-sensical madness we must suffer in the franchises most recent installments....

Arc 2:  Tons of background material for the universe, etc.  Lot's of talking.  I happen to like that sort of stuff, but it's definitely not for everyone.

With all the crazy verb-age in this series I actually really enjoyed the condensed summary and recap of everything with all the world history thrown in the mix.... real interesting how they did it while depicting the history of another nations ruler to set up the plot for more too.... actually I found it super-clever and really essential to grasping the well thought out world.

Western Fantasy would do well to follow suit instead of always dropping you in the middle of a world with a history as vast and expansive as the freakin' pacific without ever really explaining a damn thing.... This was why I loved the Lord of the Rings so much more as books and not so much as movies... detailed histories need... well.... things to be detailed for them to be believable.... otherwise its just elf-jargin to me-LoL
