Man, if the last gen has taught me anything it is NOT to get my hopes up due to tantalizing bright anime aesthetics. Of the handful of niche' titles I got psyched for, so few actually proved decent that I can't even get wound up over things like this anymore.

I am happy titles such as this are getting localized but I simply can't care all that much until more is revealed.

Certainly looks like it has the potential to be something I could really love.... but then again so did Mugen Souls.

Shadow Hearts starts off almost dead serious and then it starts going insane when the possibly gay vampire is introduced in the second game (Shadow Hearts Covenant) and the third game is completely bonkers, while not getting rid of the dark elements. For example, two of the characters in Shadow Hearts: From the New World are a Brazilian ninja trained in a secret Japanese village that's inexplicably in the Amazon rainforest, and a vampire that feeds on fat.
DDS and Nocturne, on the other hand, are much more serious. With the exception of Cielo's out of place accent in DDS.

DDS and Nocturne have the Press Turn battle systems where you get extra moves for hitting weaknesses and passing turns. Persona 3 and 4 use a stripped down version of it. Shadow Hearts has the Judgement Ring where you need to hit certain points on a disc for any actions in battle to work. The first Shadow Hearts uses the Judgement Ring for a ton of things outside of battle as well. For some reason, the Spirit of the Judgement Ring is actually a character in Covenant and his daughter is a character in From the New World.

Essentially, DDS and Nocturne are straight cosmic horror done very well, while Shadow Hearts is a cosmic horror that eventually develops a bizarre and insane sense of humor. There's nothing else quite like it.

Whoooooaaaaa nelly!!! You just made Shadow Hearts sounds pretty appealing to me sir. In fact, without knowing better, I feel the level of bizarre you are describing could qualify as some of the best/most promising plot material I have yet to experience.

Not to speak outside the realm of SMT once again in this thread but I think you sold me on SH there.

Many thanks for the guidance friend :) I foresee a Shadow Hearts filled summer coupled with old black and white episodes of the twilight zone in my future.

Alrighty, I've been inappropriately off topic long enough to discern what I needed to.... So uh... Three cheers for Nocturne on PSN!! Hip-hip-hurraaaay!

Do it! DDS is excellent. It takes the gameplay of Nocturne, refines it a bit and is much more story focused.

agreed, while Nocturne is my first love DDS is my mistress.

More then likely I will be getting to it sooner rather than later. In terms of my PS2 backlog DDS and the Shadow Hearts series are the final frontiers if you will. My current play-throughs should carry me well into next month but I've been dying to get something a wee bit darker than I've been recently indulging and from what I can tell DDS or Shadow Hearts fits the bill nicely. I've purposely kept myself pretty ignorant to both so I really don't know what to expect from either.

I know this is the SMT thread, but in terms of plot and gameplay which is more of an oddball DDS or SH? I'm not only in the mood to have something more mature on the horizon but a bit more unconventional as well.

Even as early on as I am, the dungeons seem all over the place in terms of design.

I sort of like it in a way. That is, I really don't know what to expect. Boss battles have proven oddly non-uniform as well.

I honestly felt as though I was playing a completely different game in the mammal dungeon this weekend. A far easier game than the bird or plant dungeon led me to believe I was playing....

While strangely uneven in design, the brooding mood iced with 80's willow/legend quality fantasy feel is thick and consistent. I love it thus far.

Could have benefit from some weapon variety though, for certain. Wish I had me a sword or dagger or something... I've never been a spear dude.

Wii U Re-listed because the jerk who initially bought it didn't mean to.-LoL

Hmmm,, I might have been interested in some stuff, but looks like sold already, oh well, good for you!

What was it you were interested in Bytor? A few auctions went off without bidders thus some stuff is still available.
457  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: May 05, 2014, 06:43:21 PM
Is a Persona 4 Golden anime necessary? Of COURSE it's not. Am I still going to watch it? Of COURSE I am. Also, considering the time that the livestream came on in Japan, I am willing to bet that those dudes were quite inebriated and/or pretty exhausted.

I can honestly say, even as a huge persona fan, I WILL NOT be watching P4 Golden The Anime. Since Persona 4 came out, I played P4, watched the anime, played enough P4 arena to get sufficiently sick of it, played P3, watched Trinity Souls, played P2 IS, played P2 EP, and have since moved into the SMT world I missed out on in past years... At this point I can't really say much of anything will peak my interest until there is some more P5 news. I feel like my apatite for existing persona material is beyond satiated at present.

I will say however, that a desire to finally get to Digital Devil Saga has been growing within me as of late. That is really the only leg of the SMT franchise left that I have zero experience with.

Couldn't pull myself away from Child of Light to entertain much Terranigma this past weekend. Although I DID manage to save me some mammals... pagan god boss was a total push over.

On the Child of Light note, not much to say I haven't already expressed. I love everything about it. Even the terrible rhyming has grown on me at this point. As an ill desired effect from playing however, I now want to rhyme whilst in every day conversation. It is as though when I finish verbally expressing a thought my mind continues to seek a way to "complete" the expression with a grade-school quality rhyme. So far, I've kept the urge under control...

As a DBZ whore, I had to buy battle of Z on the PSN sale... couldn't help myself. The game, while still another bad Dragon Ball-related console title, is actually pretty cool for someone who is TERRIBLE at fighting games. No crazy stringing of insane button sequences or ridiculous skill need be had to enjoy this one. Somewhat reminds me of DBZ Legends from the Saturn/PSX era. This may possibly be the only fighting game I possess the skills to play. I absolutely hate the liberties they took with the story though and the menus are horribly unintuitive.

it'd be impossible to separate my private life and work.


That pretty much sums it up right there.

I'm glad you share similar feelings on the matter. It honestly makes me internally guilt ridden to feel the way I feel about it. That is, I can't help but see myself as some spoiled brat whining about success sometimes. I know that is not truly the case, but I am also aware that is how it can come across if I'm not careful and handle the matter with "kid gloves" at times.

So thank you for sharing Tomara :)

Klyde don't perish.




No intentions yet Holy. I have far too great a backlog to perish any time in the foreseeable future.

Man this evening has pretty much sucked. Caught the random shutdown bug in Witch and the Hundred Knight after clearing 66% of a map, and now a game I'm trying to install on Steam is stuck at 99%

Hating technology right now, since this is after my mini-fridge broke down, my computer had a startup error scare, and my PS3 is clearly having a couple of issues (I've owned it long enough that I'm not surprised if it's on its last legs)

Techno issues are truly maddening. I've been lucky as of late, but I DO NOT handle them well when they occur. My com starts up... I get blue screen of death... I become convinced my world is imploding. Something about console freezes, com glitches et cetera just happens to REALLY test my patience.

Due to financial matters that are too pressing and far too much going on in my life to do the listing myself my professional e-bay power seller of a mother and her business partner are handling these auctions.

All of these items are however in fact mine and as such I can answer any questions about them.

What if you can get the power company to give you money for fire and then you can use it to buy aLL the vidya. :D

I'd be lying if I said the thought has not crossed my mind...

.....OK!! So maybe it would be more accurate to say the thought has become a constant fixation I'm having a hard time ignoring at this point.

Klyde becomes  a millionaire from the lawsuit and spends his life living in the shadows avoiding the public eye. We never hear from him again, maybe he died a tragic death, maybe he is still out there lurking in the shadows.. We would never know.

^^^ I appreciate this prediction. Well, the rich and hidden part at least. In truth too many people knowing me scares the hell out of me. I only tattoo private clients at night by appointment only for this reason. Too many people got to know me after working 12-12 for nearly a decade straight at one of the most prominent tattoo shops in my area and it freaked me out. I can't even go and buy spinach locally without being recognized. Sometimes a (little) man wants to go out looking like crap and buy his spinach in peace.

I was recently approached by another artist about being on some tattoo reality show. This also freaked me out. I had to say no.

Thing is, I absolutely love to tattoo. I love it more then anything in the world. I just don't like the inevitable reputation that develops as a result of being successful at it.

Sadly the "rich" part will never happen. I spend waaaay too fast for that to happen. And while I will remain locally hidden to the best of my ability I won't leave these forums til I'm banned- LoL. I love it here. And on that note, if I am not ban someday and stop posting you can most assuredly assume I have in fact perished.

Klyde becomes  a millionaire from the lawsuit and spends his life living in the shadows avoiding the public eye. We never hear from him again, maybe he died a tragic death, maybe he is still out there lurking in the shadows.. We would never know.

OH SHIT HE'S YODERS.

Crud... u figured it out :/

EDIT: My bazaar post linking to the ebay auctions of my crap is up if anyone is interested. I'll be honest, prices are fair with exception of the Wii U which is in fact a good deal.
463  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: May 02, 2014, 07:22:22 PM
You oughta thank your power company klyde, they managed to tell you about how you were having outtages in your area and forgot to mention taking some of the load off your circuits before power was restored in case of q situation EXACTLY like what happened. Glad you're ok though man, what doesn't kill us,right?

That was pretty much just what the parade of troopers from the fire department said. Actually the first fireman to arrive at my house and see the situation said verbatim "Wow! You should call the power company because you have a real class action lawsuit on your hands!" LoL

On a different, though related note... To help assist me in my time of need my mother was kind enough to offer her services to me to sell some of my crap. She buys and sells antiques through auctons, ebay and flea markets for a living. As such ebay auctions featuring some of my gaming goodies will be up and running soon. Keep an eye on the bazaar and I'll link to them later. She will be handling shipping and whatnot though so I warn anyone who buys... no cool pink boxes and whatnot like I have used in the past.

Just a heads up about the Wii U if anyone is looking, it is still under Gamestop warranty and comes with receipt. In other words, full active product replacement plan til late this year if anyone is interested.

Klyde looks like Cloud. Uncanny.(The face)

Personally I never saw the resemblance myself, but you are not the first to mention that. In fact, a friend of mine used to have me saved in his phone as cloud strife.

You sir remind me of a younger, cleaned up Raven (Tales of Vesperia). Which is cool... Why? Well because Raven kicked ass!
465  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: May 02, 2014, 02:19:31 PM
That sucks, man.  I've also had some financial difficulties coming at the worst possible time since I'll be out of the country in a few weeks.  Turns out money when you want to do some traveling.  


My financial problems are completely a result of my own stupidity. I am a jerk with my finances and totally unrealistic. I'm either waaaaay ahead or in dire straights it seems... never can I maintain an even keeled realistic budget.

Fires are scary...

If it ever happened to me, I think I'd grab my rabbits first but there are some things in my house that just can't be saved due to sheer volume. Like my books. And those would burn really, really well... So scary :(

Glad you're okay Klyde. I doubt I'd have the guts to go home alone after that.

Funny you should say that... The thought never even occurred to me that there could be "post fire anxiety" until last night when every little noise I heard seemed in my mind to most probably be some electrical glitch in my wall that would of course, almost certainly, result in another blaze....

Sorry to hear about that Klyde :(
Happy that everything turned out rather ok in the end.

Im officially on "vacation" mode.. atleast for 3 more days until I dive into stress study mode. A friend of mine is lending me his 3ds xl so I can play AA5.. Im playing Nier almost all day. Good times. Suffering will begin again though, it's just the calm before the storm.


Thanks for the sympathy/well wishing my friend. Note my jealousy at your Nier endeavor. Its been in back log for quite some time.
