1216  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: HELP GUYS!!... I don't know what happenned to my computer.... on: April 12, 2012, 06:17:24 PM
Well, if you can somehow manage it when your pc works, try installing a linux distro or even just booting off a live CD.  Unless something is critically wrong with your hardware (possible), you could at least use the linux os to backup the rest of your data.  Once that is done, you could reformat and see how that goes.

I was afraid it might come to this... "reformatting"... the dirtiest, most dreaded term in my pc vocab..... it would take me ages to get things up and running as I have them now... in fact I don't even know how to.... last time I ended up having to re-purchase all sorts of non-sense I purchased digitally online and whatnot..... as you could tell I'm not very well versed in these matters/don't know all the appropriate and important stuff to back up....

any tips in regard to backing things up I may overlook? as for now I am just concerned with my anime, my art and that is all I know really.... but obviously there are more important things then that..... for instance I have adobe PS CS5, now how would I go about backing that up to restore it in event of a reformat?

Don't know what's wrong, but now seems like a lovely time to back up your data.  Just throwin' that out there.

Well I backed up a great deal of stuff.... unfortunately I have way too much to accomplish all of that in one sitting.... but I'm plugging away at it.... when all the sudden....a new problem emerges.... system crash/memory dump/blue screen of death!!!

The system crash keeps happenning now.... I keep restoring.... sometimes it works for hours.... sometimes minutes.... sometimes I can log into windows.... sometimes I cannot.... I don't know what is going on... I never really had any problems prior to this and my computer is only a year old.

While having only dipped my toe in the lake of Yggdra and Knights, I am still super stoked about Gungnir.... I have had it pre-orderred since it was officially given its date.... I hope I can find the time to get through Yggdra and Knights before this comes out though, because my current "to play" list is massive and  I fear these maybe gems that slip by me despite being on my shelf..... Because If I am correct and Gungnir is not related to those titles in any way, than I feel it may take precedence to me before those. I absolutely adore the art style and aesthetics... major selling point for me.....

Cmon Klyde, you should know better than to continue derailing a topic. I sadface man :(

Since I'm posting here anyway, was going through this not too long ago, and had been grinding for tp heavily for maybe 2 hours, when I got inti a random fight and used kosmos x buster to nab a x10 bonus, when the game froze on me. Pretty sure I mentioned how this happened to me not too long ago with Jr and moonlit serenade too, but it still made me rage.

I'm sorry.... your right, I do know better... I get excited over PS2 talk and my lower nature takes control.... I just can't help it...

As for your freezing issue, I feel for you man... Happened to me a time or two as well when moving from one environment to the next... screen would go dark and never light back up..... I lost like two hours of gameplay meandering through the innards of the gnosis to that scenario....
1220  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Project X Zone - The Namco X Capcom sequel on: April 11, 2012, 03:34:32 PM
I too hate cross-universe titles.... even when my beloved Etna makes a cameo in an NIS release it bothers me.... and I love Etna.....

As for anything that has to do with capcom, well.... I think the only thing that could excite me now would be another breath of fire.... yes I would love a breath of fire.... heck, after I bought the game i'd even dump another title or two's worth into all the DLC.... I actually had a dream that the big Namco x Capcom x Sega revelation was a new breath of fire..... I was gonna post here about it but my computer decided to take some time off lately....
1221  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenosaga 1, somehow not attracted..... on: April 08, 2012, 07:05:09 PM
I recently dusted off the PS2 and I'm trying to catch up on several RPG'S on it that I missed during the last 7-8 years. I've got FF XII ready to go and some of the Shin Megami Tensei and Xenosaga games are on my radar. Any "must play" suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

This should probably be another topic.... and it probably will end up as one... but I'll bite anyhow.... here are a few off the top of my head...

Suikoden 3-5 ( liked 5 best personally)
Wild Arms 4 or 5
Magna Carta (I don't care what anyone says... I loved it)
Growlanser Generations and Growlanser Heritage of War (these are most definately "must play" IMO)
Valkyrie Profile 2 The Silma....Silma... Silma-something..... (forgot the title specifcally, still decent)
Disgaea 1and 2 (loved em)
Persona 3 and 4 (loved em)
Digital Devil Saga (loved what I saw of em)
Nocturne (everyone loved it as far as the SMT stuff goes.... I found it pretty bland.... while the environments and tone are very cool, I just couldn't get into it personally..... something about playing as demon that looks more like a techno raver turned me off)
Devil Summoner (loved the first... heard the second was better, still have yet to get to it)
Dark Cloud 2 (I didn't dig the first)
Shadow Hearts (people rave about this one... I have yet to get to it myself)
Dragon Quest  VIII
1222  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: April 08, 2012, 06:54:51 PM
I am 40 some hours in and absolutely love this game.... I really think its my favorite Tales title yet.... Whats really shocked me, it being a tales game and all, is how in love I've fallen with the cast... In most of the other tales games they were an afterthought collectively, save a few particular characters sprinkled throughout, in the wake of awesome gameplay..... But I really love em  and their interactions in this one! Like quite honestly Richard, Hubert, Sophie and Pascal are all just completely worth writing home about.
Wait, really? Tales characters, while fitting into idiotically generic anime archetypes, have always taken center stage. I don't think there are many other series that can match the character interactions and relationships Tales characters do.

Anyway, yeah. On the basis of gameplay alone, Graces f is one of the best in the series. Shame about the music though.

Funny thing is I love generically idiotic anime-LoL

I don't know though.... for as much as I've loved the Tales games, the casts always proved forgettable to me.... I actually didn't like any of the Abyss cast at all to be honest... As I said a few exceptions stick out in my mind throughout the years, but none I really fell in love with. I guess I should have been more specific, as its the characters themselves I found mundane... the interactions and cast development was probably their only saving grace with me in prior installments.

Though I must admit... I did always think Kratos was pretty bad ass.... and its been too long for me to recall Tales of Eternia (once I finish graces F, that is getting another playthrough)

So about the Gamestop preorder artbook. Does that come inside the game case or does it come separately?
It comes separately and its an odd size. Its not the same size as a DVD case but the paper is pretty high quality.

Freakin' nuts man.... That makes me mad.... I asked 101 times if pre-orderring got me any goodies... having already played through the European thus I felt no need to buy the game again unless there were some limited edition bonus.... NEVER was I informed of this  "art book"..... damnit.....
1224  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: April 07, 2012, 05:20:19 PM
I have a hunch the Japanese have a cultural 'We don't find this funny...pffft!' weakness for pissed pants like Britain does over farting humor.

A little piss here and there I can tolerate.... though its not really funny and I too felt for Hubert..... but fart jokes.... well I have no time for fart jokes... no sir, I don't like em.... in fact typing the word "fart" makes me feel funny..... I prefer to pretend flatulence does not exist personally....

But back on topic..... As fir the kids thing, I didn't mind it.... but that was cause I knew it would end- LoL! But did anyone else get a funky "this remind me of Breath of Fire 2 vaguely" sort of vibe after completing it? I don't know.... probably just me....

I have no experience with the newer model ps3's or the ps2 classic downloads but with the 60gb ps3 with BC when you hit the smoothing option during gameplay the difference is quite drastic..... I mean I have seriously tried every high-end cable and visual enhancing method I could come across and NOTHING I've seen works as well to make your old games look as good as they did, if not better, on newer TV's..... I'm curious as to whether this is possible with the ps2 classic downloads and newer ps3 models myself.... can anyone shed any light on this?
1226  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: April 06, 2012, 06:24:54 PM
Finished Dragon Age Origins a few days ago, it took about 40 hours. Not extremely interested in Awakening.

Couldn't get into Rage at all really. Sold Mass Effect 2 after playing it 10 hours.

All I really have now is Demon Souls to finish and Arkham City.

I'm open to suggestions. I generally like WRPGs, but I'm open to anything on the PS3. I was thinking of Dungeon Siege 3, DA2 or Castlevania. I may need one or two more to hold me off until Dragons Dogma or D3.

Thanks ♪(ε` )

I hated dungeon siege.... castelvania entertained me for a bit though....
1227  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / HELP GUYS!!... I don't know what happenned to my computer.... on: April 06, 2012, 06:00:14 PM
So I came home from work last night and sat down at the computer..... hit the start menu and what do I see....??? Absolutely nothing!!!

My start menu was empty, all my desktop icons gone, and going directly to them on the C drive and trying to open them yielded a dll error message that read something like this:

cannot open yadyadayada.... -5
Unable to read script something or other
dll error: 5

..... So i restored my com to two days ago and a ton of stuff popped back up but then additionally, everything appeared hidden..... like my docs, photos et cetera... had all become hidden folders at this point.... In addition to that, certain programs just still wouldn't work at all or malfunctioned, so uninstalled and reinstalled them manually.... which brings me up to now...

At this point, everything seems fine, but I dont know how this happened or if I actually amended the issue.... was this a virus? my trend micro titanium said it detected 10 web threats and stopped them which was the only abnormal thing I noticed in the protection report.... but I'm freaked out.... is this common or going to happen again?

I'm not savy about this type of thing so I just wanted to know from those far wiser then I, what they think the problem was/is and what measures they would take... thanks guys :)

from NeoGAF:

Persona 3 FES coming as a PS2 classic to US PSN next tuesday -- "Source: PS Blogcast", Wario64

Thats great..... because of the all the SMT titles that came out on PS2 surely the most difficult to come across is Persona 3... yea that one isn't available at all....

Seriously... I'm sick of the same titles getting re-released 4 times, often on multiple platforms, while trying to find a way to play a slew of other games that deserve just as much acclaim is like panning for gold....then having to take all your nuggets and deposit them in your bank account to pay nearly a hundred bucks on e-bay for a copy you pray is in decent condition!

I just saw multiple used copies of persona 3 for the ps2 in gamestop directly across the way from more used copies of the psp incarnation..... but you know what? I didn't see one copy of Devil Summoner, and I'm pretty sure they only had 1 part of the digital devil trilogy.....

I just finished the first season of Spice and Wolf.... wow.... I totally concur with the generally opinion around here.... freakin' awesome....

Unfortunately, Hime' has been on hold for spice and wold and will continue to be as I venture on to season 2.... Sorry hime' a certain wolf and merchant DEMAND my attention at this point...
1230  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade on: April 05, 2012, 03:27:26 PM
I feel a little weird saying this, especially since I've been so critical of modern jRPGs with FFXIII at the top of the list, for being painfully linear. Xenoblade almost feels a little TOO BIG. I mean seriously, its gigantic, I spent over ten hours running around colony 9 and upon recently returning to beat the snot out of a lvl 17 unique that handed me my ass several levels and many hours before, I realised that there's not only a ton left to do, but also a load left unexplored. The next area is even BIGGER. Its both awesome and frustrating at the same time since I'm one of those "gotta do it all" kind of gamers.

I'm also really happy that Unique monsters have started to roam around instead of just sitting there and waiting for me come and get them. Makes it all that much more fun when one of those things just pops up from around the corner. Even had one join a fight today, it may have been a little inconvenient to have to high tail it out of there, but it gives the game just a little more spice.

I felt the exact same way playing through..... each new environment and quest demanded my attention and would consume WELL beyond the amount of time I would care to give to questing between story advancing segments.... this however was my own fault because I, like you, am a neurotic completionist..... well you put it more nicely as a "gotta do it all"-type gamer...... I'm just freakin' out of my mind..... but that is neither here nor there.... back to the point...

I highly suggest, not getting too caught up in ALL the optional stuff too early.... it will be a VERY long time before your locked out of any areas or miss anything, and those particular instances you can sort of see coming... that aside, I became a wee-bit over-powered for the main story doing all the optional stuff... In hinesight when I got further along I began to realize, had I waited, I'd be venturing back to so many locals for various reasons as I embarked on more questing, that had I not been so nuts about exploration initially I would have saved myself hours and still have accomplished the same amount....

Basically, all I'm suggesting is don't be overtly OCD about everything too early on... remember the games of yesteryear where you'd wait until you got a good leg in and find a nice spot of downtime in the main story to tackle a bunch of optional stuff as opposed to panicking that if you missed something it would be crucial and not available ever again?..... yea, think of it somewhat like that... otherwise you will end like me.... 50 hours in and barely a third of the way through the game-LoL
