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.

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!!!

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.
546  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!!!!

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!
548  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.

My big screen in my living room is typically on the "PC" setting. I also typically leave my computer on RPGFan and as such, I have been coming home to this "green" staring back at me when I come through the front door for years now.

It is comforting.

I don't know how easily I would adjust to a new color...

As an aside, I will say that I recall when I first stumbled across RPGFan many moons ago, I was horribly turned off by the forum color scheme initially. Now I feel its appropriate for our community. Something about it translates "substance over aesthetic" in my eyes now.... like a well aged 16-bit RPG... Ok, thats enough. I have officially thought too hard and analytically about our color scheme...

ohhhhhh boy.... My collectors edition just came in the mail and I'm still not through with Kingdom Hearts. I am loving Kingdom Hearts ATM (currently at hollow bastion) but Disgaea is my FAVORITE franchise.

This is reeeeealllly gonna require some discipline folks...

And no. There is no playing both at once. If I pop Disgaea in I will never see Kingdom Hearts again. The real tragedy would be that I would enjoy Disgaea far less with KH weighing on my mind.

The only way out is through...
By any chance, are you looking to get the next Pokémon game in three days? That'd be much worse.

This is why I don't stick with two different video game companies.

Nah, earlier this year I finally discovered that no matter how great a game is I simply can't enjoy handheld consoles. Not with amount of home-console-crappola I've accumulated over the years. One must prioritize I suppose..
551  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VI enhanced remake coming to IOS/Android this Winter on: October 09, 2013, 04:58:55 PM
Oh good God my greatest fears are coming true!!

I knew it was gonna happen eventually... but to finally see the only re-release/remaster I've truly waited years for hitting nothing but IOS and Android, well its abysmal.

I tried to prepare myself for this, as I knew it was inevitable, but it still hurts.

This got a pretty negative review here but I'm enjoying it just fine :D

I got more laughs out of the first chapter than the entirety of Disgaea 4.  So glad to have the original trio back.  New apprentice system is great.  "Mounting" doesn't seem terribly useful but there's no turn limit like magicchange so that's cool.  The first mounted prinny skill is the best

I am DYING to play this!!!.... but I have to polish off kingdom hearts first in order to devote myself to it properly.

Without even playing it though, I can see where a disgaea game can either leave a stellar impression or a pitiful one. Nippon Ichi clearly caters to the same crowd time and again with Disgaea (or at least they try to). That is giving some fans exactly what they want, while leaving others... well.. wanting. And they certainly have not been too concerned with widening the appeal of the franchise to a broader demographic. I love seeing progressive and inventive measures being taken with games but when it comes to disgaea I will gladly take more of the same.

Grim- I think we ALL had that "weeaboo/wapanese" phase of "everything Japanese is superior/ I wish I was Japanese" and all that nonsense.  I'm glad I grew out of that nonsense. 



I am almost thirty years old and just growing out of that phase... or at least I am entertaining the idea of growing out of that phase as a result of playing kingdom hearts...
555  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Halloweeny Stuff on: October 08, 2013, 04:40:39 PM
This thread has proved really informative to me. I have Future Diary and Ghost Stories on deck now. I actually already had both and for some reason was going to begrudgingly watch "Is this a Zombie?" even though I really wasn't too enticed by it... completely forgot about Future Diary and Ghost Stories...

But the real reason I'm posting is the simpsons. Very entertaining. I have not watched any regular eps yet but I am totally enjoying the Treehouse of Horror Specials.

not "Halloweeny" but definately horror, I love John Carpenters The Thing

Your like the 19th individual to bring that movie up to me this week.... i think that is a sign....

For anime there are

100 Stories aka Requiem for the Darkness (It's only 13 episodes and I really liked it)
Devil Man
Demon City Shinjuku
Vampire Hunter D (two movies)
Wicked City

For movies, I always like more monstery stuff

Dagon
Event Horizon
Re-Animator
The Fly
The Fog
The Mist
It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

If you've never seen it, you could check out the old Masters of Horror series that was done with different famous horror directors. As I recall, some episodes were very good.

Never saw Demon City, Dagon or Re-Animator. Thanks for the tips. While I think my viewing budget for the season is well spent at this point, those suggestions are totally going in my back pocket for the future!!
