I can't really explain why exactly, but I am sucker for all this outfit DLC stuff! In fact I always am... I REALLY loved the alternate outfits in Alice Madness Returns and bought every one of the DLC costumes for Tales of Graces F (even though I don't think I even used some of them...).

This Cloud-get-up bonus non-sense put me over the edge actually. They got me on board for the pre-order.

THAT IS IT!!!

After today I SWEAR to you all, I will NOT ever put Agarest 2 back in my ps3!!! My obsessive compulsive nature bested me yet again this morning and I decided I would give it another crack.... hours I will never get back....

Seriously, I wish one of you guys could punch me in the face anytime I even so much as think of playing this again.

Agarest 2 is not a bad game and that is the problem for me.... there is too much about it I really like but it unfortunately just really does not outweigh how I much I grew to loathe the gameplay.

I think I am gonna go sell it to someone or trade it in to get it off the shelf and out of my mind-LoL

Back to Atelier Ayesha and a world where I know for what reasons and why I am pressing buttons again.

In the realm of Final Fantasy, for me it is Shadow in FFVI when...

Code:
He tries to save the day on the floating continent.

Although I can't believe no listed General Leo and...

Code:
his last stand in Thamasa.

And for the record, I happened to become really addicted to blitzball for awhile. Although admittingly, Tidus himself almost turns me off to the game entirely.

Well I officially cast Agarest 2 into the abyss of games I will never (or at least am not likely to ever) finish. After spending hours to pick up appropriately where I left off in Gen 2, I finally arrived at the conclusion that I CANNOT play this game...

Last year when I played it I was taken by the stellar soundtrack and lovely art. I still am. The plot and writing is without a doubt a cut above for a CH/IF title. But these points just do NOT justify (for me) the disjointed and unituitive mechanics of the gameplay and the inherent monotony of the aforementioned madness. Not with so many other awesome titles on the shelf.

Picking up Agarest again felt too much like work after forcing myself to complete Wild Arms Alter Code F.... gaming should not feel like an obligatory chore.

Moving on, I started Atelier Ayesha finally... a few months ago I blitzed Ni No Kuni in order to be ready to start Ayesha day 1 and got side tracked by persona 2 IS and consequently EP thereafter. I felt I owed to myself to not let the new Atelier trilogy slip into the realm of the "I'll get to it someday" games/ series (of which I have many).

and lastly.... to those playing FF6... you guys have gone and done me in.... I can't take it... As if this week I think I will be re-animating my "Retro-Weekend- gaming-regimen" where on weekends I only indulge 16-bit goodness (or earlier). I can't keep coming to this board and getting jealous of those playing something from that era and still enjoy any current gen stuff-LoL

^^ while I don't believe gaming should feel like an obligatory chore, I do believe in playing JRPGs like its a second job with schedules and whatnot. How else are you going to conquer these epics!!??? Harharharhar!

Sorry to revive this thread but I am doing so with purpose...

After Rorona left a bad taste in my mouth I found it difficult to return to Arland. As such Totori and Meruru (while I understand to be much better) still sit unopened on my shelf.

However, I HATE when a series I appreciate or am interested in gets annual releases and I am left in the dust.. Unable to ride the wave of enthusiasm over siliconera posts and updates because I have fallen behind on the franchise. Thus I decided to, somewhat reluctantly, begin Ayesha this past weekend.

On to the purpose...

For anyone who may have (like myself) appreciated the art style and charm of the atelier series but was on the fence about returning to the franchise until the franchise returned to something a wee bit more "iris" in nature... for me personally... I am shocked at how impressed I am with this game so far.

Explaining what I've found and appreciated about the title would only echo the RPGfan review and well circulated info about the title. All I am truly posting to say is if you have been looking at the new Atelier titles' previews and going "gee, but I never even got to ayesha.... guess I'll pass.." it may be worth rethinking or taking another look.

If nothing else, given its length, it should fit in nicely now right before I become tales-obsessed in August! LoL

I normally avoid even looking into or at game trailers and previews of things I know I'm going to play... I like it to be a surprise. But I could not contain my curious nature as I watched this thread flourish since E3 and gave in.

First I would just like to say that this game looks freakin' stellar to me thus far. Seriously excited, I am... Excited in the way I was when I first saw a chrono trigger add and thought it was a secret of mana sequel!!LoL

But while we are talking outfits and aesthetics and sexuality...

This guy has the most gorgeous features I've ever seen in a male character profile/status pic. Seriously, I might be a heterosexual man but I call like I see it and this guy is "Gavin Rossdale" beautiful in my book. End of discussion.

Thank goodness the "name that weapon" contest has ended....

I don't care about winning much of anything, though for some strange reason I became OBSESSED with that weapon contest for the last week. Every moment online I spent crafting names for submission.... I got to the point where I started submitting entries under different names and e-mail addresses in case they started to think I was looney for submitting (literally) hundreds of names.

So if anyone here subscribes to the prinny bomb newsletter look for the name "Klyde Chroma" in the winners my friends because it WILL BE SO!!! Mwahahahahaa.... also look for the name "Zach Dende" and "Trynn Ark" just in case.....

NOTE: I don't actually think I am gonna win but I feel the false bravado (coupled with the unreasonable volume of my efforts) somehow increases my chances.

Wild Arms Alter Code F.... IS FINISHED!!

That is one loose end from my childhood taken care of!

This also brings me to my final backlog, Agarest War 2. Upon completion of Agarest I will know what it feels to game without the distraction of a backlog. Of course this all depends on if I can pick up mid 2nd generation and figure out what the hell I was doing within that mess of a skill-system. I remember the plot well enough from where I put it down but I recall being relatively "lost" as far as really having a stategic direction as to how I was developing my team. Geeeeee golly I wish I played this one on easy-LoL
489  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: June 28, 2013, 03:24:58 PM
Well I hit a crossroads in Wild Arms Alter Code F...

Do I delve into the ridiculous amount of optional content at the end of the game or B-line it to the finish?... Given how lackluster the writing and characters proved to be for me I decided to just move forward on polishing this one off. This however may have proven an ill-decision, as I just made it up to the top of ka dingle and am CLEARLY under-leveled. I enjoy the challenge but am afraid of not being able to complete the game. And here I thought Rudy's gatling raid alone was gonna be enough to snap the game in half... foolish kylde was...foolish

Wild Arms Alter Code F- De La Metalica (or whatever the god forsaken place was called....) included, what is my estimate to be, the single most unfair puzzle in the history of my JRPG career.... anyone who played has to know what I'm talking about.... the end...
491  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Most aesthetic armor you've seen on: June 20, 2013, 06:21:51 PM

Utterly bad-ass!

Thank you again for all the help guys. I got the job. I start ink-suiting my man up this saturday night!!

For anyone wondering what all the fine inspiration you folks provided me yielded....



That is of course just a rough sketch.

Wild Arms ACF: Ok I know the translation is not stellar but I seriously think they completely missed providing any reasonable direction as to how you go about finding the "Evil" guardian. I don't check faqs but I had no choice on that one... Anyone else have that problem or did just completely miss something?

Dust An Elysian Tale: Finally picked this game back up. I don't know how I put it down... so addicting. Just made it to Mudpot. What a beautiful village for such a grotesque name.

What movie should I watch later? Akira or Zodiac? I have never seen either.

I never saw Zodiac and Akira never really "wowed" me... So I vote Zodiac! Then you promptly report back with a review!! -LoL

But seriously, I just read up on it (because I wasn't familiar) and it sounds pretty interesting. That one is totally on my "to check out" list. Thanks Yoda ;)

Guys I must extend a sincere apology here in this thread to anyone who went through the trouble of adding me as a 3ds friend....

Upon realizing that no matter how cool the title I just cannot get into a handheld game I sold my 3ds XL to (partially fund) a PS4 and pay of my tales of Xilia Ce's.

I am extremely sorry for the inconvenience of adding me (if you in fact have). I feel like a failure of a gamer in some sense.... and at the same time I am very relieved. I didn't realize how much I treated playing that thing as a chore.
495  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: June 19, 2013, 04:23:41 PM
Wild Arms Alter Code F- Thank god this game is dripping with puzzles and lots of exploration because the appeal certainly does not lie in the writing.... the plot is alright, but gee golly is the script lackluster. Just got through the forest prison. Things are getting INTENSE!! Heh...

Animal Crossing, Soul Hackers and Everything else for the 3ds.... Well I've finally gone and done it... I threw in the towel... I just CAN NOT get into playing games on a handheld for the life of me. After trying my damndest for the better part of the last year to get through anything on my 3ds I've finally arrived at the realization that, no matter how great the game, playing anything on it just feels like a chore for me. So I sold it. If anyone sees this who added me as a friend I am terribly sorry.

^^I am ashamed to admit this for some reason (oddly).

Put my 3ds profits toward paying off my two Xilia CE's and a playstation 4.

And as for FF6.... you guys are making me jealous... it may soon be time for my dozenth (or so) play-through-LoL


 I am just pluging away on maxing the main stat for each character in FF6. Just got the Paladin Shield. Pretty stoked.

Ah, I'm going through Final Fantasy 6 as well (I'm playing it through the Virtual console though). Just got through the burning house in Thasmas.

From right around there up on through until the WOR is my favorite part of that game... oh the nostalgic goodness. Shadows theme is one of my favorite little diddies in all of gaming history. I use it as a text message alert on my phone.
