I'm a trails fan but I CANNOT do the IOS thing..... hell I can't even do handheld.... Thanks god for the PSP's component cables to TV option..... Anyone know if Vita will sport the same function?
1412  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden Topic on: December 27, 2011, 03:42:03 PM
It actually looks real promising to me :)

Suikoden has only failed in one respect for me, and that is simply that not every game could be Suikoden 1 or 2-hahhahaha

I love anime, I love Suikoden..... I imagine I'll probably be able to forgive em for a space-monster or two if the title is as solid as its predecessors, story and style departure aside.....

Truth is I like seeing new and innovative growth in franchises.... I personally believe Final Fantasy has left us all "afraid of what could happen next" with some of our favorite series.... well for me it was Final Fantasy, Secret of Mana and Breath of Fire that made me fearful for the "future" of my favorites...

I've had the worst luck with my component cables this year..... had to get new ones for my old PS2 (expected...) my wii (unexpected...) and 2 freakin' sets for my psp (completely ridiculous to kill 2 sets in a year...)

But yea.... I'd bet my nuts its your cables.... If it were your system other stuff than a flicker would more then likely be occurring.

I'd love to know how to find a good local tattoo artist. My friends aren't really the tattoo type.

Where do you live? I can check into finding some reputable artists in your area for you... It is very wise of you to be "picky" when it comes to your artist by the way..... Unfortunately the industry is super-saturated at the moment with idiots who have NO BUSINESS WHATSOEVER permenantly rendering anything on peoples' skin.....There are supposed to be regulations and standards however they, unfortunately, are seldom enforced.....

That's pretty cool, Klyde.  You should post links here to the others when you have them - response to that kind of thing is generally really positive. :)

Thank you sooo much!! I will gladly post links... but maybe I should I start a new thread for em, as people may get upset if I keep reviving the christmas one eh? Hahaha... Thanks again

This is a cool thread!! I need to venture outside the "single player" room more often....

I am a tattoo artist primarily but I do alot of other commisioned visual work... Tattooing is just the medium that pays most the bills. I love my job really... while it is quite demanding, there is really no dichotomy between work and pleasure for me in a sense and I've found that is what really equates to happiness....

I had a number of truly grueling and miserable jobs before entering the lovely an twisted realm of body modification.... Baker, Tree Trimmer and even Dildo-Salesman (yes you read that right)...... Life is far more rewarding these days :)

Merry Christmas!!

No presents for me to speak of.... Though I didn't really expect any... I myself made steam-punk inspired miniatures for everyone I knew. Honestly the lessons I learned crafting them were gift enough for me! I never tried my hand at assemblage art before and it was quite enlightening... In fact, at the suggestion of a few of the recipients, I am doing a few commisioned pieces now and going to produce a series I dubbed "Klyde's Sentience and Metals"

For anyone interested, I will be posting them all to be viewed here http://triscal-goddess.deviantart.com/gallery/34309413

Here is one of the first examples.....

I really hope that picture is not too big......

Anyhow, as for me, I'm taking the day to treat myself to a healthy session in Xenoblade :)

EDIT: Ok that picture is way too big.... I'm sorry, someone forgive me... its christmas.....
1418  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Games You'd Like To Give Another Chance And Why? on: December 22, 2011, 03:56:59 PM
I am currently giving the Wild Arms series another chance, starting with an Alter Code F run-through.... not that I didn't like the games, I just got caught up with other and never played anything past the 2nd.... I'm really liking Alter Code F by the way, with the exception of some extraordinarily poor gameplay aspects such as the lack of equipment and inability to talk to townspeople unless you are positioned abso-freakin-lutely-perfect in front of em.... But its all forgivable in light of the titles finer points.

Someday I want to get back to Zelda series, especially with skyward sword out now.... I stopped at Wind Waker, once again, because other titles took precedence.

Breath of Fire 5/DQ is the only Breath of Fire I didn't play-through and it is one of my favorite series to date.....

Devil Summoner and Digital Devil saga someday......

Ohhhh and I also totally need to finish up Xenosaga.... Loved the games and have too much time invested into it to not polish off the trilogy....

Come to think of it.... I could probably fill a whole year up with back-logged titles sitting on my shelf.... quite a few PSP games I've yet to even crack open that I know I will love....

Bottom line for me, too many games, not enough time...... My job demands upward of 12 hours a day 7 days a week..... I've worked like that for years now.... It's really cut into gaming..... Then again it has provided me a nice selection on the shelf and a hell of alot of memorabilia......
1419  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Next "Trails" game announced for PSP on: December 21, 2011, 01:37:43 PM
The next "Trails" title has been announced and its for the PSP, not the vita.


The question I now pose is, how does this impact our chances of seeing it stateside??

NOTE: Huge fan of "Trails" here *points to self....... very concerned about this indeed.....

And are the fourth in their respective series.

Today's hint will be on FB. What will it be? 'It was published in Japan by Atlus/Index.' Or, 'it has an N in the title.'

come on growlanser, baby!!! Klyde wants it... NO!!.. Klyde NEEDS IT!!!
1421  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales Of Vesperia. on: December 19, 2011, 03:58:49 PM
May as well, that's the price point where just getting 1-3 games you wanted is enough reason, especially since you might want to give Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey a shot too.

Excellent point, thanks for the advice my friend! I haven't looked into those yet and it could be just enough to tip the scale as they say :)
1422  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdom Hearts Series Discussion on: December 19, 2011, 03:55:17 PM
Am I the only one who hates cross-universe stuff? I mean I just can't stand square + disney..... not saying the games are bad, in fact in all honestly I can't give em a fair shot because square + disney is like dipping chocolate in ketchup to me.... in other words, its something I would never think to do and doesn't appeal to me in the least....
1423  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: the next big Jrpgs on xbox and ps3? on: December 19, 2011, 03:49:09 PM
There's a ton of depth to the gameplay now, and the monster catching/raising was done in SMT and people love those games.

The SMT games were hit and miss for me.... Monster Recruiting was one of the aspects that really botherred me to be honest... I liked how the persona system was implemented in later titles and I dug how they pulled it off in Devil Summoner but I really couldn't stand having a full party of monster recruits in Nocturne... Maybe I'm jaded because I hate Dante and the Devil May Cry Franchise...... Anyhow, once again, its a matter of opinion and personal taste... I have a much harder time growing affection for and caring about monster recruits.... maybe it just reminds me too much of that debauchery of a tales sequel for the wii.....

Then again I will take monster recruits over glorified-transformers (thats how I felt about the summons in XIII)...... I REALLY hate transformers.......

So to further illustrate my original point.... that is, how personal taste and opinion can render even some of the finest titles lackluster to some and vice versa.... 2 completely idiotic but gamebreaking bias I have are A) Absolutely NO Transformers aloud and B) Certainly NO hack and slash "too-cool-for-school" crossover characters like Dante.......

To be honest, while I'm on the subject, the fact that an Assassins Creed Outfit is bonus DLC for FF XIII-2 bums me out as well.... just shouldn't be I tell ya..... it just shouldn't be....
1424  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: the next big Jrpgs on xbox and ps3? on: December 18, 2011, 05:19:03 PM
it never ceases to amaze me how often "this game is better than that game" debates ensue.... I mean, we all realize by now that its a subjective matter based on what you value in your games thus no matter how strong an argument one might have, your never really going to "win" the given debate.... I personally love some "terrible" titles, purely for the aesthics.... I'm an artist by trade and I just can't help but be sucked in by particular styled visuals.... in that light, I can easily see how someone could favor Neptunia over alot of other titles... mind you when I say "styled visuals" I do in fact mean the "style" often and NOT the quality of the graphics.... hell, I appreciate the mood and style of some very primitive RPG's over alot of the current gen. stuff... but that is another topic entirely....

As for XIII-2 it looks like this to me... alot of flash without much substance, and while very steam-punkish in style (which I appreciate) that fact is really bull-dozed over by some heavy sci-fi (bad thing for me).... monster catching/raising/using in battle (never a good sign IMO unless we are talking SRPGs)..... as far as the story goes, I think it will be hard to even give it a fair chance because I was left so unattached to any element of it from the first title... in other words, even if this is done right as far as the story goes its too little too late far me, I could already care less..... same case for the cast, meaning I will find it difficult to care about them based on the bad taste left in my mouth as well..... we do get time travel though and I'm always a sucker for that....

As for what I'm looking forward to the most out of the next year? Probably the Tales and Atelier titles. Xenoblade would have been my first choice but I'm already 70 odd hours into the Euro version.... and on that note The Last Story has also got me pretty excited :) 
1425  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales Of Vesperia. on: December 18, 2011, 04:55:50 PM
I've been DYING to play this game.... only tales game I haven't played due to the fact that its a 360 release and that is the only system I've never really felt compelled to pick up.... truth be told though, now that they are only 130 buck used at Gamestop, I may buy it just for this title alone....
