Happy halloween folks!

I should go to gay bars and pick up guys to play video games with.

I picked up a chick to play Seiken Densetsu 3 couch co-op this time last year. Didn't work out... she was more interested in me than the game... I was only interested in the game. Had to finish that play-through single player.... Cool girl though, we became good friends :)

I thought I was a NIS die hard until Mugen Souls... That game was the epitome of disappointment for me, as I did have very high hopes for it initially.

Personal opinion aside, I am astonished they are localizing this for a number of obvious reasons.

Heres hoping there is some sort of Neptunia-quality of improvement. I'll be a sucker and give it one more shot...

Something amusing for people to mull over. When I was playing through the section of story you get plot-progression in using Lady Laharl I had a thought.

Do you think the main Disgaea/D2 continuity would've been better if you gender swapped every character from the get go?

I mean think about it for a second. LL is actually 'less' whiney and tsundere in female form. Maybe it was just the translation but the character felt just the right mix of negative traits without taking it to the 12th extreme like Laharl usually does. Etna I think might be a bit more amusing in male form simply for the outfit and translating all the 'flat' jokes to fit for that as well. And Flonne...well...not sure honestly. I think she'd pretty much be the same both ways without gender really factoring in. Although if anything 'he' might be more of a cliche since superhero/ninja stuff is more male-oriented to begin with.

I think they could have worked the gender-bender angle more to have made things more interesting for sure.... however something about fem-Laharl totally bothers me. I would have been pissed if I had to play as her the whole game.

On an unrelated note, NISA finally decided to send me my guide book that was supposed to come with the CE. Not bad... only 2 weeks late... I must say, it sure does have some pretty pictures :)

I like white consoles. That white 2nd model ps3 is fucking sexy, as is the white vita which I ALMOST imported but thankfully the vita's price dropped

As a very heavy smoker, I have great disdain for white plastic objects on any nature. In a short frame of time that crisp and sexy white, becomes Klydes very own special edition of yellow tar. A visual-proof of my disgusting habit staring me back in the face every time I see it.

That is all. Sorry to go off topic. Back to the matter at hand... The Zelda 3ds LE Console. Golly am I tempted!! It would look so sleek next to Zelda Wii U gamepad when docked and charging. Plus gold and black are like tobacco stain proof!!

I think instead of trying CRPGs, you should try indentation and line breaks.


Xenogears kind of sucks.

Well it appears Link and I have two things in common... I too need to work on my typographical-forum-conduct. Then again, I have over-used ellipses to the point that I don't think people actually mind it any longer.

And I also want to play Xenogears. Well I want to re-play it. I played it so long ago I can hardly recall it. What I do recall however, was it being more of a case of long stretches of awesome and long stretches of totally sucking as opposed to just a "kind of sucks" total package.
456  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGFan's Top 20 PSP Games on: October 19, 2013, 02:01:21 AM
In regards to the list, I am mad BoF III didn't make it here.

I love the game and all... But Mikba and some of the gross-ass factory dungeons can suck a whole bag of dicks.

Gotta say I'm torn on the Breath of Fire argument. On one hand, personally, I am HUGE BoFIII fan. On the other hand, it is hard to ignore some of the games blaring faults. It is so easily broken if you exploit particular formations that take advantage of individual characters strengths it is ridiculous. Also, end game happens pretty abruptly for my taste. I almost felt like it ended preemptively... like, there should have been another few hours of some intense plot stuff.

So on my personal list, BoFIII would make the cut. However, being objective in crafting a list, I would have to exclude it.

Breath of Fire aside, great article/list for a truly awesome console. I spent more time with my PSP than I did my PS3 actually. The JRPG library, coupled with the ability to hook it up to the big screen made the PSP a real attractive device for me.

I loved Dissidia. Played a ton of single player, even more multiplayer. I think I had over 100 hours on the Japanese version. <3 Zidane.

Dissidia was bitter sweet for me... I liked it but... well... I sucked so much at it, it was almost no fun at all! LoL

I am not nearly far enough in to judge the story yet (chapter 4) though I have found it bland thus far beyond the entertainment value of the recycled "Laharl, Etna Flonne" dynamic.

But like Cyril said, the battle system is spot on. The gameplay, amongst the other mechanical improvements, have been plenty enough for me to overlook any lack in regard to the plot.

I am particularly fond of some the simple yet pointless crap they tacked on in the dark assembly. Changing the MC at base along with the characters that follow, color palettes et cetera..... I also really like the "promotion" option for characters, which is a feature I had been hoping to see for quite awhile.

I am personally enjoying this a wee bit more than 4 simply because I felt 4 got too complex for its own good in some respects. I also feel the difficulty has been ramped up a bit with D2 which I really appreciate. I muscled my way through the plot in both 3 and 4 without ever really needing to tax my brain strategically.

I have to reserve my final judgement until I experience a bit more of the title though (obviously). I feel safe in concluding already however, your mileage and satisfaction from the game clearly comes down to what you play disgaea for. I'm in it for a grindy game with lots of character creation and strategy dominant battles. D2 is scratching the "itch" nicely :)
458  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nippon Ichi's Project: D "Disgaea D2" on: October 15, 2013, 05:48:28 PM


On the other hand, the gameplay system is far and away the best.  My one complaint is that Clerics don't really get a ton of experience through healing anymore (much like Disgaea 1) so you're back to forcing them to physical attack or group attack to level up.

So ummm... game mechanics aside... how do you feel about the new "male" clerics? I don't mind the fem' vibe they got going on but those voices... I named one "Klyde" because I felt physically they sort of resembled me but every time I hear "him" speak I find it disturbing.
459  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: So does anyone think the Vita will get better? on: October 15, 2013, 05:43:56 PM
The Vita line-up actually has me furious with the fact that I can't stand handhelds. If I could manage to enjoy playing em, I would be pleased as punch with the vita.

So for this Klyde it all comes down to the Vita TV/ ability to somehow play vita games on the big screen.

The new Y's upscaled without adding insult to my already putrid-headache-inducing-posture (thanks to doing tattoos for a living) would utterly rock!

Well this collectors is selling fast...

Already sold out on Bandai Namco store.

If anyone aside from me wants to be a sucker and pick this up, Amazon and Gamestop still have/had it available as of an hour ago.

http://gematsu.com/2013/10/tales-of-symphonia-chronicles-collectors-edition-announced

Symphonia Chronicles CE announced. Don't know if it'll make it to PALand but for $100 (+tax) big ones you'll get a game, an expensive coaster, five figurines, a soundtrack CD, a fix-fic manga, and a nice box.

Unfortunately, the Xillia CE was only just ever so barely worth it to begin with for me, there's no way in hell am I getting this. Symphonia was a good game and all, but a) I already have a copy on the GCN, b) none of the feelies are that worth it (well okay, the soundtrack might be, but Symphonia's character designs were more miss than hit to me, and FtNW's designs can go die in a fire for all I care), and c) I can't imagine them fixing From the New World to the point of becoming worth playing.

Fancy box just takes up too much space (and while UFOTable are a great animation studio, their "style" is kinda superficial to me).
Figures?  Cute, but after a month: Duct-collectors
OST: If they redid the soundtrack then maybe

I guess I'm curious about the novel, but nothing more than that.  Yeah, I'm probably sitting out of this CE.

This is made worse if the game by itself is going for that "HD Price Tag" of $40-50.  I really, reallly don't wanna pay an extra $50+ for some assorted goodies.

You guys sure know how to make a Klyde feel like a real sucker for opening my wallet for all these trinkets...

@Dice- I know they only collect dust! BUT NOTHING WEARS DUST BETTER, or looks more adorable in spite of being adorned in it... THEN A COLLECTORS EDITION FIGURINE DAMMIT!!!
462  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nippon Ichi's Project: D "Disgaea D2" on: October 14, 2013, 02:54:50 PM
Sorry to double post, but I can't contain myself.

After beating Kingdom Hearts 1.5 last night I got to crack open my D2 LE and get to it!

First impressions are super-positive. The dub is spectacular, the game mechanics feel much more coherent and cohesive than in recent Disgaea installments and character creation completely rocks in this title. I am particularly fond of the ability to now select alternate color schemes for characters.

I really can't imagine a Disgaea fan wanting more. I may only have a few hours with it thus far but this game screams quality from the door IMO.
463  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix announced on: October 14, 2013, 02:45:55 PM
How strange... I just beat KH final mix last night and now this.  Pretty stoked about this announcement seeing as how the main appeal of getting through KH for me was because about of how much better everyone claimed 2 was. Klyde will be ready... bring on the Disney, baby!!!!
464  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: October 14, 2013, 02:42:04 PM

Pretty cool to see an HD collection/remake get such a fancy collectors edition if you ask me. The claims of only 15000 units will being available makes this a "pick up a second and keep it in the shrinkwrap" level CE if you ask me!
465  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: The favorite Disney TV cartoons thread on: October 12, 2013, 06:50:25 PM
Well I just decided to check out Walt Disney's classic cartoon "The adventures of Mr. Toad and Ichabod Crane" because it came highly suggested to me.

The verdict?... Freakin' terrible man!! When the exception of the mildly entertaining "manic-ness" of Mr. Toad I found the hour and 8 minutes of viewing an utter bore.

Just wanted to post this in case anyone stumbled across it in the future and was hoping for some vintage headless horseman animation (as I was hoping...) because this will surely not meet your expectations. The headless horseman segment accounts for about 5 minutes of the total film.

Now if your into the whole "lets sing and frolic in a looney tunes type of way" sort of stuff then by all means check this out.
