1216  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....
1217  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
1218  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.....
1220  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?

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....
1223  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...
1226  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
1227  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: NISA Announces 3 PS3 RPG Releases on: March 30, 2012, 04:35:43 AM

this is like...... wow... this is like, life is like a box of calorie-free chocolates and I'm eating every freakin' one of em!!!!!

it was me!! I MADE THE THREADS for legasita and mugen souls weeks ago inquiring as to what the chances were I'd ever see these games.... and now all I can say is the "boss" has heard my pleas.... what a year in gaming this shaping up to be for me.... growlanser, gungnir, the possibilty of yet MORE tales titles, one atelier on the way and another already anounced, and now THIS!!

..... I'm gonna quit work and just play games this year I think.... thank the "boss" I don't have a girlfriend or I'd have to dump her just to accomodate the games... life is good folks... life IS GREAT!
1228  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: March 29, 2012, 08:22:26 PM
I just finished up Elemental Gelade.... not so great.... the MC (Coo) is extremely annoying.... this is coming from a guy with a high tolerance to cliche' stuff, over-the-top-fan-service, predictable plots, bad voice acting and a number of other problems in light of some good anime-fantasy.... Coo almost ruined it for me... I say almost because I still dug it.. Though part of that may have been because I was fond of the Manga.....

I also just polished off "Another".... predictable yet fitting ending to a very entertaining and. at points, disturbing series... two thumbs up :) Totally check this out if you at all enjoy the macabre and gothic fare....

Currently watching My Hime' (nope, believe it or not, I NEVER saw it...) and Spice and Wolf (been meaning to watch it for nearly a year now, give or take)

On the Evangelion note..... I happen to love the series.... it is about depression, angst and psychological "issues" but is backed up with enough well paced action to pull in interest from alot of angles... not something you see done often or very well when it is attempted. I feel, however, like the series strengths act as a double edged sword of sorts.... That is many attracted to the series for particular reasons may very well be turned off by alot of the content. I mean, if I came along hoping for something purely psychological such as Serial Experiments Lain and I wasn't prepared for some serious mecha-combat..... I may be disgusted.... this however was not the case for me.... I loved every minute of the series and found its unique tone and at times dizzying and incoherent plot to actually work well. That, and Rei Ayaname is my freakin' hero. End of story. As for the religious stuff bothering people... well.... I'm bothered by the fact games sport guns and mindless human vs. human slaughter but I let it slide.... I just don't play those games.... I see no need to speak out against them though.... they are there and they are just not my flavor...
1229  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: March 29, 2012, 06:27:50 PM

Guess you should have done things opposite. Main quest first, side quests after.

But what if you get locked out of a really coooool quest from advancing the story? Thats always my fear..... even with new game +'s and whatnot, hardly ANy games get a 2nd playthrough from me no matter how good..... there are just way too many things to play for 2nd completionist playthroughs these days I'm afraid.....

On a completely different note, I just put 4 hours straight into tales of graces f today..... I haven't had a 4 hr game session IN YEARS!! I feel like a kid again..... what a pleasant day.....

also I've come to terms with retiring Children of Mana so everyone could ignore my plea from the above post to help me justify that decision...... LoL....

lastly I've been affording some time to the 1 and only non-rpg series that has interested me in my many moons of gaming... Mega Man! Well..... Megaman  Zero to be more accurate.... not as cool as remember em though.... not sure if I'm gonna continue with it or not.....

Klyde's post reminds me of this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8g_t2tfbz8
