How easy is it to sign onto the PSN store and see deals exclusive for PS+? I may sign up for dis

Ultra-easy to use.... even I don't have a problem with it :P

I absolutely love ps plus! If you like downloading anything off the network or doing anything online with your games it is a money saver. And I don't even think about whether or not I want a game when its free, I just buy it so its on my download list for the future just in case (this way it doesn't take up disc space and it is available for what seems to be freakin' forever).

Additional note about the cloud storage and whatnot FYI... even if you let your subscription expire or lapse for awhile, once you sign back up everything is available again.

I have 2 ps3's. One in what I call my "current" gen room and another in what I call my "classic" room which also act as "present playthrough room" and "backlog room" (its better than having a living room and a bedroom, I swear!!). And when the need arises for me to continue a game on the alternate system, cloud storage is a god send. Simply copy save data to the cloud, restore on another system and voila'.... Even works for "copy protected" game data.

I don't even touch online multiplayer stuff at all and ps plus is still enough of a reason for me to be completely dedicated to sony. i would go so far as to say it is one of the few services that I feel I really take advantage of (as opposed to most services that generally take advantage of me for some privelage or product that should either be free or cost a hell of a lot less).

while I'm a bit late to the party here I just want to say a few words....

@ Dice
Don't let the test score get you down! You make fantastic art and are beautiful yourself to boot (yoda just said so!). Top that off with tales of xilia coming out in english in a few months and the fact that you can eat chocolate and from my vantage point... bad test score or not... life still looks good!

Oh yea and I count this as a major leg of my social existence too... and I haven't reached 1000 posts yet....

@ Yoda
I concur... we are an attractive lot here! (i will keep telling myself that statement includes me to boost my self esteem... to those ends Yoda, I thank you)

and lastly....

Dude what if you combined the joy of painting with the joy of sex?

Well at the very least you'd have some damn fine sex-ed material I'd venture to guess....

so I got a quick question for you P2 IS buffs...

I realize rumors are missable, but so long as a spread a rumor is the event itself missable? i am only particularly referring to things like the cursed taxi. I spread the rumor, looked everywhere for the damn thing and gave up after 200,000 bucks worth of random encounters.... Now after moving past that segment of the game (considerably past it, mind you) I am wondering if its even possible to find the freakin' taxi anymore.

any advice would be appreciated as meandering through dungeons in this game is quite demanding on my patience.....

No, I don't think that one is missable. If you spoke to Chikalin and told her you weren't scared of it, it should appear in the Abandoned Factory after you spread the rumour.

yes sir! I said "I ain't scared of no taxi!!" and made my way to agency, spread the rumor, took a skip over to the factory and searched top to bottom..... and nothing..... I didn't mind moving on, but now its sort of bothering me -LoL

you have answered my question though! I just didn't want to waste any more time on a fruitless venture.

I don't even see your elipsis-abuse any more, Klyde. :P Got used to you.

I can't comment much on Trinity Soul as I gave up on it pretty early for the reasons you said.

Star, I find that extremely kind and comforting for some reason. I thank you :)

I did 3 more eps of trinity soul yesterday... its a mixed bag of predictable plot points I can see from a mile away (which I typically can stand) and a really/cool spooky tone   (which I like) however the real problem I'm having is this is all overshadowed by the "mysterious whale feather"...... clearly the role and signifigance of the "feather" in question will be revealed (hopefully).... but for the first 10 episodes it just seems like a real lame set-up for a revelation that they keep dragging on. In other words, I've been seeing this "feather" since episode 1 and I still don't know why.... finally an episode last night that looked promising (seemed to really be focusing on characters pasts and the feather) only to end leaving me more lost then when I started....

... the feather trick worked... not so much by intriguing me, but I am now sufficiently bothered enough to follow through with the series to see where the hell they are going with this....

Attack on Titan

Jesus Christ this comic is intense.  Are you reading it?  Why aren't you reading it???
The terribly grotesque nature of the story and plot features what is nothing short of psychologically frail human beings that make the plot and characters of Neon-Gen: Evangelion look like a bunch of pussies

That is a bold and enticing statement! Certainly enough to grab my attention. I will go and look into this "titans" and report back... and I'll do so with even LESS ellipses next time!! progress my friends.... progress...  :)

being that I am super saturating myself with all things SMT at the moment, I thought I would give persona trinity souls a whirl after enjoying P4 the animation...

I actually am really liking TS so far.... although I have to say it really seems to slow down for the worse the further I get... it was off to a strong start in the first few episodes.... now I'm only a little under half-way but it really feels like its been crawling.

i'm still trying very hard to get used to subs though so maybe that is impacting things....

... I'm also trying to post with less ellipses that mirror my speech... I'm failing miserably... LoL
757  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: I wanna play Growlanser Generations but I dont because of this persistant rumor on: March 23, 2013, 05:42:26 PM
i don't know a blessed thing about the lens or "how what" "reads what".... now can I say that I am familiar with the rumor....

Now, what I can say is that I personally have played the hell out of blue discs without any problem..... For growlanser generations I would take the risk...

I don't know whether to be more surprised that you never heard of trolling, or that you never heard of Urban Dictionary, Klyde.

Though actually, 'trolling' is an old term.  It goes back to the dial-in BBS days before most people even had internet access.

i heard it.... and i knew through context clues generally what it meant... but i didn't REALLY know what officially qualified as "trolling" behavior...

and as for the urban dictionary, I only had a hard copy of an urban dictionary a  long ago from the 90's.... i suppose it wasn't that I didn't know it existed, it just was not something I was mindful of..... truly a tool of great utility for someone such as myself who doesn't listen to the radio or hasn't watched television in like 7 years (aside from anime)....

what does "trolling" mean?

"Being a prick on the internet because you can. Typically unleashing one or more cynical or sarcastic remarks on an innocent by-stander, because it's the internet and, hey, you can." -- Urban Dictionary

wow.... enlightening.... i'm keeping that urban dictionary bookmarked on my iphone! thanks :)

I'm looking forward to it..... not as much as the sailor moon remake but I'm on-board for some Goku with my Usagi this summer...

As an aside I will say this..... best promotional piece ever right here.... pure genious....

funny i thought the gameplay of X-2 was a horrible step backwards.
In what way was X-2 less then infinitely more interesting gameplay wise than X? X had some strategy, but it was controlled, no sort of threat while you considered how to approach a fight. X-2 not only kept you thinking, but also gave you options to prevent (or in most cases delay) enemies attacks and commands. Compared to X, X-2s level of gameplay was like nes to n64.

At the risk of being part of the minority of X-2 lovers, I tend to agree with D here..... actually I completely agree with D... x-2 is the only reason I will buy the HD collection actually....

A. The gameplay (as D expressed) and....

B. While I already played through X three times and played enough blitzball to last a lifetime, my experience with x-2 was far more brief and limited.... my girlfriend years ago actually decided she was going to tackle it and sort of took that one off my hands... damn that girl could play... she trounced the title in like a week or two.... i don't think the system ever even got turned off...

On a completely different note.... despite have hundreds of posts here I'm still forum illiterate.... what does "trolling" mean?
762  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Screw announcements, let's just release the game (Atelier Totori Plus) on: March 21, 2013, 02:53:11 PM
Well, technically it picks up after the events of Rorona.  I say 'technically' only because not much actually happens in Rorona.  The main stories are unrelated, but there are a number of returning characters.  That said, mechanically it's a much better game than Rorona, so it's hard to actually recommend that you start with Rorona unless you're really into the series or something...

So I would say yeah, Totori is a reasonable place to start. Just keep in mind that you'll be missing the occasional reference from the previous game.

We have been here before. Get Klyde to attest.

For the love of all that is holy, PLAY TOTORI FIRST!!! play the ps2 classics, play meruru, play a handheld entry.... just SAY NO to rorona... I didn't take that bit of wisdom to heart and look at me... I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO MUSTER TO COURAGE TO RETURN TO ARLAND SINCE!!!! And I have all the LE's sitting on my shelf unopened....

This is coming from someone with a tolerance mind you... I am probably one of the few people outside of those that frequent the NISA forums that actually look forward to IF and compile hearts titles..

.. there was just something about Rorona boy..... I can see if you really were into the whole atelier flavor (micromanaging items for synthesis and whatnot) enjoying Rorona.... but as a place to start, abso-freakin'-lutely NOT!!
763  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Screw announcements, let's just release the game (Atelier Totori Plus) on: March 20, 2013, 09:02:04 PM
The story is unconnected, but the gameplay is very much improved and very fast. It's somewhat difficult to go back to the previous games. The only connection Grand Phantasm has is that one of the characters is named Iris. This is also the only game in the Atelier Iris trilogy where you control a character actually named Iris.

Thanks for the info! I loved 1 and although I liked 2 I put it down.... every time I look at my atelier shelf I want to try phatasm but felt restricted because I didn't finish 2.... but in truth I feel there is enough atelier on my to plate to leave that be rather then throw it into the backlog agenda......

..... of course with everything I have going now and ayesha having just come out its probably gonna be this time next year before i even consider another classic Atelier title-LoL
764  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Screw announcements, let's just release the game (Atelier Totori Plus) on: March 20, 2013, 04:54:24 PM
The first Atelier Iris is somewhat clunky, but it is very charming. I prefer the second one, but I find the trilogy a lot of fun. The third is the weakest when it comes to story, but the battle system is really good.

I have read that grand phantasm stands alone as its own title... and I have also read that it is the conclusion to the iris trilogy (as in part 3, do not play before playing part 1 and 2.... which I loved by the way)  which is it?
765  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Annoying Moments in otherwise Great Games on: March 20, 2013, 04:50:26 PM
there are various types of annoying in rpgs for me..... plot annoying, challenging annoying and mechanically annoying.....

as for plot annoyance....

ffvi: shadow joins group.... i want to level shadow up.... shadow leaves group before I can make enough money to even get his equipment up to date with the rest of my party...

seiken densetsu 3: i love the first half of the game... then i realize the to finish it, I need to literally replay the whole thing in the second half without any story incentive.... anyone who played knows what i mean... for those who didn't.... you literally have to RE-TREK YOUR WAY THROUGH EACH DUNGEON AGAIN AND FIGHT A NEW BOSS WITH NOW PLOT DEVELOPMENT!!!

disgaea 4: your about beat the game, time for post game content!... nah fooled you!!!.... ok for real this time.... ahahahaha got you again!!.... ok, ok,  this time for sure.... AHHHH! No way, you've got more grinding to do and new end boss to wrap your mind around.....

ar tonelico 2: any of the latter levels of the cosmospheres.... i can only take 25-30 minute dialogues about trust and friendship so many times before they get old

challenge and or mechanically annoying.....

Lunar 2: Borgan
FFVI: Phoenix Cave
FFT: a number of different battles....
Persona 2 (currently playing): most of the dungeons I've experienced thus far.... not in terms of enemies or game overs but in figuring out where to go and what to do in a timely fashion
Earthbound: That little sequence of solo-ness-play in Magiccant or whatever the place was called toward the end
Earthbound again.....: Figuring out what to do to beat the final boss
Y's 1: The final boss (took me like 2-3 dozen tries to beat em)
Suikoden 1: The wars.... too chancy... on my 108 star play-through I had to re-load too many times because characters would get offed based purely on the rocks-paper-scissors chance mechanic....
Tales of Graces F: Final light/color puzzle in the desert catacomb dungeon... ROUGH STUFF.....
ni no kuni: derwin's familiar recruiting requests

there is more but those really stand out in my mind for some reason....
