I always thought that getting all trophies takes a lot of the "fun" from any game.

Completely agree there. That's why I have almost no platinums.
There is always at the very least 1 trophy that is just zero fun at all to get.

I figured by now I'd have found at least one game that naturally compelled me to get a platinum but it just has not happened. I'm very much a completionist by nature but unless your playing specifically to get trophies, it just doesn't happen. I am still without a platinum and will probably remain so.

"Completing" a game and getting all the trophies, seem to be two different goals entirely to me... the latter (trophies) feeling more a chore than anything else IMO.

For my "retro-gaming weekend" agenda I decided to give Chrono Trigger another play. I've played it so many times I feel like I could hand draw most dungeon maps from memory if I had to and yet I still love every minute I spend with the game. Just got through Heckran's (sp?) Cave.

Its funny.... I notice for some odd reason it is way easier to sit down for a multi- hour gaming session when I do these "retro" games on the weekend. I don't know what it is about older 16 bit era titles, but they hold my attention without my mind wandering for longer periods of time it seems.

Messaged you back... I think?

Got the message... *tag* your it!! LoL

Also, I had to edit the Suikoden bundle. I don't have the heart to sell 2. Although I know this was the primary draw of the bundle, taking out 2 does reduce the price by over 100 bucks. If anyone REALLY had their heart set on it though, let me know I may reconsider.

Klyde - Wow you made those?  They are pretty cool.




A year or two ago I actually had a thread here in general discussion where I posted my creations. They have evolved a bit since then but yes, they are my little monstrosities. I make more of them then a I can stomach (due to demand) to be honest with you... I have routine clients that buy them for the holidays so the volume I turn out always goes up this time of year. I'm grateful people like them but unlike tattooing, which is pretty much all fun for me, these little creatures are TEDIOUS to craft!! LoL

Klutz, you have been messaged.

Additionally I just updated.... added Suikoden bundle, Xenoblade and Skies of Arcadia Legends.

I've turned off every security setting/protection/restriction/blocking thingy I could find and I am using firefox. The problem appears in BOTH internet explorer AND firefox browsers.

So... ummm.... I wrecked my car and need to buy a new one. Head on over to the bazaar to check out the goodies I'm selling to help fund the wheels.
637  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: Klyde totaled his car... now selling games. on: November 02, 2013, 05:01:03 PM
Ouch man - that sucks. Good luck with the sales and getting a new car.

Yea, I'm lucky actually. If the dynamics of the accident were a bit different, it could have proven far more "Ouch-ee".... LoL

So like the subject expresses, I totaled my car... or more accurately a giant truck on the highway totaled my car... and it placed somewhat behind financially.

So I'm going to be throwing a few items up on e-bay, but figured I would give you fine folks a crack at the games and gaming-related merch first because I hate the e-bay hassle.

PRECAUTION: I do smoke. Items may or may not come with bonus limited edition cigarette odor if you are sensitive to that type of thing.

I need to make this move quick though so if anyone has interest, please express it because monday night/tuesday I will be listing.

GAMES

- Lunar Silver Star Story Complete and Lunar Eternal Blue/PSX (Playstation 1)/ Silver star is in excellent condition, Eternal Blue has scratches but works perfect. I played through both beginning to end and can confirm that every inch of the games worked just fine. Both games have original cases and "making of" dvds. No additional bonus content (no hardbound books or maps). $55 us dollars.

-.hack//g.u. trilogy/Ps2/ All three games are in great condition (even the instuction booklets are still crisp). Some glue residue on the case where the price tag was is about the only quality complaint I have with them. $140 US dollars

-Tomb Raider 2013 Collectors Edition Tin Ps3 NEW (still sealed)/ Contains Lara figurine and all sorts of goodies/ $90 US dollars (that is ten less then I bought it for)

- Suikoden Bundle/ Suikoden 1-3-5 (no 4)/ All games have cases and manuals. Disc for suikoden 1 looks a wee bit rough but works just fine. Condition is acceptable/good for suikoden 1. 3 and 5 only have minor scratches. 35 US dollars

All prices include shipping. Paypal only. All sales are final on account of the fact that the bucks will be used immediately to purchase a new vehicle. I am not unreasonable though, if you buy a game and for some reason it doesn't work, I will do a refund for something like that.

This is why I tried to suggest getting through the Alcamoth section before trying to do all the quests there earlier, it's most definitely the low point of the game. You're like a brief dungeon away from the plot taking off (unless you've already done Prison Island in which case the plot should already be beginning to rev up again, starting with Shulk getting his mid-season upgrade), and the area after that is when the gameplay should begin to pick up again (if not there then in the area after two rather straightforward areas after the first aforementioned area).

Also, the tomb shouldn't be too much trouble to navigate on subsequent visits should you find yourself returning there (there are a couple of spots that are still a pain, but the place does hold a few secrets; even if a few of them require end/postgame levels).

I'm actually in the snow area (I got there in like early October), and I skipped pretty much all of the sidequests in Alcamoth/Eryth Sea, except for the few I did incidentally.

Also the tomb isn't hard to navigate it's just the mandatory goddamn golems every five steps.



For the love of God, give the game a few more hours. you are almost THERE mesh!!! what is there?!? WHO is there!??? well you'll never know... until you get there!!!

But for real. Your a hop-skip away from some of the best parts of the game.

I didn't really care about this at all, but I'll have to admit it does look great.

Gameplay:

Game is also delayed till March.

Not my cup of tea, but it does look pretty good. I could really see this game being a wet dream of sorts to those who are a fan or south park or that particular "brand" of humor. From the looks of it, quality control in regard to gameplay and presentation are remarkably high.

I want to start making a habit of posting in the game journal. I feel like I'm lacking something when I don't come here and post on a habitual basis.

Disgaea D2

Chapter 8 and still no real plot development to speak of. Yet, in spite of that fact I am enjoying the title none-the-less. Shallow as my taste might be, all I need is Laharl spouting off about beating the snot out of anyone who disagrees with him being the overlord to be satisfied. D2 certainly has ample amounts of that! In all honesty I wasn't expecting much more out of the narrative and continue to be pleasantly surprised by how engaging the battles are. I am overpowered at this point and yet the maps still demand I do a little thinking regardless. Gooooood stuff!!

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 :)
643  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mugen Souls Z coming stateside 2014. on: October 23, 2013, 08:16:08 AM
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...
644  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nippon Ichi's Project: D "Disgaea D2" on: October 21, 2013, 11:17:11 PM
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 :)
645  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Zelda LttP 2 for 3DS on: October 20, 2013, 09:20:49 PM
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!!
