I was avoiding this thread because I have no frame of reference in regard to resonance of fate.

But I can see now things have become interesting here. Not to join in on further de-railing of the topic (or keeping it alive past its purpose for that matter) but I can't bite my tongue now..

This  board is one of the few communities with a fair and equal contribution of intelligent discussion from a great variety of perspectives. In short, that equals an awesome board with just the right type of "life" to it. Or so that is why I choose to come here at least. No one really wastes space with meaninglessness unless its actually interesting or entertaining. And we have enough intelligent folk with different gaming backgrounds and tastes to keep it "alive" if you will.

 I don't want 101 reddit-jokers clogging crap up with an abundance of non-sense that is both uninspiring and uninteresting. Nuf' said.

Well I played soul hackers until 4am this morning. A good night indeed!

I agree with the review for the most part. I have very little experience with other first person dungeon crawlers to contrast this with but in the realm of what I have experienced thus far in the SMT franchise I would not go so far as to say this title is stellar. That isn't to say I'm not enjoying it. Actually I think I am going to try to make this the first 3ds game I actually get through (saying something big there....).

It felt reeeeal slow to start but once it got going, and I was no longer intimidated by the mechanics, things became far more enjoyable. Speaking of intimidating the newb (such as I am), that is one problem I have soul hackers. This game really does not hold your hand at all. I feel as though they took for granted anyone playing would already pretty familiar with the nuts and bolts of the title. A minor gripe really but they could have at least gave you an instruction booklet with the game!

I really enjoy the gameplay in battle. This is turn based combat that can be executed at mach-3 if you wish. Good stuff.

Lastly the music... A total mixed bag for me here. I love some tracks thus far. I disagree with the review on that note and have felt a few of the numbers to be reeeeal catchy. However, in contrast (particularly in dungeons) you have some extremely droney audio to endure. The drone of the tunes sets an appropriate mood for me but just is not aligned with my personal taste what-so-ever.

I cannot comment on the narrative as of yet as I am not far enough in to judge but I will say this... Thus far it is what is keeping me going :)

EDIT: I also want to add one thing about the voice-overs... hands down some of the creepiest voice acting for demons ever... freakin' awesome and very fitting.

I don't know what came over me last night when I went to pick up Soul Hackers at the midnight release for Injustice but I simply could not help myself... I pre-purchased another Xilia LE... they told me I could buy a third if I wanted... I can see this becoming a problem if I let it...

In other news I am happy to hear that the Tales series will never become Skyrim.-Lol

so i've played enough of p4 arena now to officially express my opinion. The verdict? Good God they had potential for a killer anime series here... that is all... I can't justify any other opinion I have on account of the fact that I can't stand any fighting games no matter how good they are.

7 hours left til I can pick up soul hackers... It will take some discipline to put into effect my carefully designed gaming regimen to handle Eternal Punishment as well but golly am I excited!

 Cell saga is my favorite DBZ story arc.  

Just re-watched the whole frieza saga after well over a decade with no DBZ in my life. moving onto cell this evening... I am guily as charged sir!

I also love Sailor Moon and am vocal about it. I love it so much I've planned on getting a sailor moon tattoo for a long time now. Darian is the man, and sailor mars was my first (and only) cartoon crush. As a child I was disheartened by the fact I couldn't really marry ms. mars someday.

I consider Outlaw Star, Chobits, Slayers and Moon Phase to rank amongst my more favored guilty pleasures for various reasons. Moon phase was just too adorable to resist!

just got around to watching the first 2 eps of attack on titan. gotta say, in my opinion, they seemed to have handled turning this into an anime REAL well! I thought I would be somewhat disapointed because of how much I am enjoying the manga but I'm happy to report that is not the case at all. Although I do have to agree with Dice about the awkward blood bath/rain animation at the end of episode 1... for such a beautifully done episode, what an excruciatingly terrible way to convey a blood splatter... really bugged me brief as it was...

while i'm still very early on in both the manga and (obviously) the show I can't believe how engrossing the material is.

in other news, I reported a few posts ago I decided to watch some dbz after the recent crossover eps left me fiending for some goku in my life. i heard such horrible things about the newer "kai" re-release of the series but I must disagree. kai kicks ass in this DBZ fans opinion. end of story! kai will be how I indulge the re-watching of some of this dated classic for sure. waaaaay faster pace = waaaaaay better DBZ to me! But in all honesty, nostalgic value aside, holy crud is this just a bad freakin' show... don't get me wrong, subjectively I love it... objectively speaking though I really can't understand how it fostered the acclaim it has... its just... bad...

EDIT: Shit.  Xillia has me worried in that I really don't think a battle system is going to make me as happy as the pinacle that Graces reached.  Made worse by the glaring flaws in Xillia's battle system from the get-go.

That is my biggest concern as well. I LOVED the graces F battle system. Going back to something more abyss-ish will really feel like de-evolvotion  to a certain extent.

Kinda torn about the CE. Not that it isn't fantastic, because it certainly is, but I have enough crap just lying around that I don't know if a Milla statue would get any use at all. To be perfectly honest, the only collector's bonus item that I've gotten any real mileage out of is that mousepad from Agarest War 1, and I use it proudly to this day.

I still use my agarest mousepad too!!

I'm with you on the Avengers Klyde.

They are lame.

Yea, I can't explain it really. I know western-comic-heroes sort of fit with my taste of over the top and fantastic fiction but I have hated most any I've been exposed to since I was a little kid. Before I had any idea what anime was, while other kids were all into there super-heroes, I was too busy with voltron, ronin warriors and sailor moon.... man you really are NOT the cool kid in the lunch line when you are sporting a sailor moon thermos in contrast to all the spiderman, batman and super hero beverage containers.

None the less... heeeeeeeerrre is ze' hulk!

Trying to convince my GF to buy Soul Hackers, but she only likes RPGs in medieval settings. Boooooo. 


That is exactly what I used to say-LoL

No joke, it really was SMT/Persona that changed that. Fantasy/Medieval may still be my typically favorite flavor but I'll take these twisted sci-jpop-punk-modern-fantastic settings any day!!

Thats right... Sci-Jpop-punk-modern-fantastic is how I'm (boldly) classifying it! Sticklers for proper genre placement hold your tongues!!

Klyde, when I finally hit that massive lotto jackpot I secretly yearn to win, I am so getting my tattoo done by you.

It doesn't have to be a massive jackpot D, in all honesty if your project was geeky enough to entice me you would probably just have to pay travel expenses and I would only charge you the cost of materials for the tattooing.

And with that said... last night was many many hours of drawing a geeky tattoo that DID NOT entice me... bitter sweet for me as the project and client are cool but I freakin' HATE super heroes... and while batman is one thing (no hate for the b-man, just no love) I really can't take the avengers... well now I have full avengers back-piece that I will be working on for the better part of the next year. Starting with hulk.... *groan*
747  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: April 13, 2013, 08:30:35 PM
you're amazing klyde.  its awesome you can make that even without the batman love.

Your too kind Dice. Thank you.

In truth I'm just so OCD with my tattoo work I pour that effort into everything.

Case and point, here is what happens when someone comes to me for something "simple and small" like two bows (well it started out simple and small, I swear!!)

748  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: April 13, 2013, 08:13:39 PM
Got Soul Hackers.

I like how visually pleasing hacking is.

You get everything early! Phooey on you!! I'm jealous enough waiting for the rest of Attack on Titan to come in the mail-LoL

The clan/Atma symbols from DDS are a great choice, they're very iconic but subtle.


(You can see it by her collar bone.)

Oooo boy... maybe the mongoose was right and i'd best wait to play DDS before making the decision... I would really like to sport the symbol done just like that in the same spot if I dig the game and character.

Man, I really am gonna be playing nothing but SMT stuff for the rest of this year... that was a joke before but now I'm not so sure.

Even here, when I write about it here, I know most of you don't really give a damn, and I'm honestly just stroking my own ego, but I can't stop doing it anyway. I feel a need to talk about it, but know I shouldn't really. Basically, I'm sorry for always bragging about my feats, especially if it comes off as bragging. I'll try to cut back on it some...

Dude in terms of posting stuff that nobody cares about, you're never going to beat me :P
Well, I always pegged your ramblings as simply humorous anecdotes more or less, a joke about real events. Plus, you're random about what you write, so it always comes off as something new. My shit's getting tires, I feel.

There is abso-freakin'-lutely nothing wrong with posting meaningless crap or stroking our egos. Hell, if we don't do the stoking who will!??

On that note I love D's "log of strength"... I do my anaerobic training vicariously through his posts-LoL

And Mesh, you make me feel like "I'm not the only one" with a great deal of your "ramblings". Ramble on my friend.

And lastly here is my contribution to the meaningless and unimportant
This was really fun to get to do even though I am not a batman fan by any means.

Ahhhhh you lucky folk (dice and kevadu) are making me jealous! I have to order (and wait) for everything after volume 2 of AoT!!! (manga availability in my area is pretty poor) and I'm already hooked...

In other (current) anime/manga related business I watched the first ep of Gargantia today and can safely say I'll be tuning into the rest of that. The pretty space battle that kicked stuff off was a wee bit too much sci-fi-flash for my taste (a subjective matter) but everything else seemed reeeeeal promising.

Good golly guys, I gotta say. After having suffered through all of Persona Trinity Souls, subs don't seem troublesome at all to me now. I actually wonder why I really had a problem with em in the first place...

Lastly.... THAT FREAKIN' DBZxTORIKOxONE PIECE crap totally made me crave DBZ! LoL! For the first time in like 15 years I decided to re-watch some. Nostalgia at its finest, rivaled only by sailor moon for me... I love it.
