Hahaha! Now I don't feel so doofus-like for buying AC!

I think I'm gonna regret selling that Sunfish I caught my first day, but it did make my first down payment on my house.

Working on my downpayment right now actually.... I keep donating all my new catches to the museum and its slowing me down-LoL



There is a sort of stigma that comes along with playing AC isn't there? I don't care! I love this game and I'm a 28 year old male. It's the perfect, relaxing Summer game IMO.

I too am a 28 year old male and I adore the cute-factor of this game! I have proudly marched into gamestop to pick up Agarest and Hyperdimension Nep amongst others.... I even go so far as to use my LE's as decor in my tattoo room at the studio I work at... I gave up worrying about the stigma long ago, but sadly your right my friend... people do judge you a bit based on this stuff. And that is fine with me, you know why??? THEY WILL NEVER KNOW THE JOY I EXERIENCED TODAY OF TRADING A FORTUNE COOKIE TICKET FOR AN ARWING!! And for that reason I feel sorry for those who poor souls...

All I have to say about all the news today is that, IMO, not having a "XIII" in the title of versus is quite possibly the smartest business move Square Enix has made. By changing to "XV" I predict exponentially better sales than the title could have fostered with a "XIII" regardless of how awesome it in fact proved to be. Silly as that may be......

Hey everyone! Quick question... I want to add all you fine folks as friends on PSN and 3ds and maybe even Xbox (well those of you who posted your tags/id's in the respective thread). What is the proper conduct for doing so? Do I need to message everyone individually first? Add and THEN message everyone....? Do I even need to message anyone.....

I'd hate to ruin our budding and blossoming cyber-friendship before its truly begun...
Unless your handle is something we don't recognize, generally the request is fine. Otherwise, just mention in your friend request who you are.

Cool, thanks for the quick response D. For anyone who sees this on here, my PSN is Triscal-Goddess (oh how I wish I could change it...).  I will identify myself in message. Thank you.

Man, last night work ran rather late for me so I couldn't get to animal crossing or re-familiarizing myself with where the hell I was with Wilds Arms ACF... so last nights gaming session was a bit of Labrys' scenario in P4 arena. Labrys wins the award for most annoying voice over/eng dub ever for me... I'd take the horrible cheesy voice acting of any niche' gust title from yesteryear over hearing that freakin' android utter another word...

Today however I did get to Animal Crossing. Didn't really think I could enjoy this but I think I was wrong... I can easily see how this can becoming hella-addicting to tend to on a daily basis...

Wow does this game EAT TIME!!! I fired it up the ol' 3ds today and planned on trying out AC quick. "quick" ended up being a little over 2 hours-LoL

Thanks for the advice guys. I think I will enjoy this!

Just play the original. Horrible combat graphics aside, it's generally a far better game, since most of the new stuff in ACF you either don't get to play with much/can entirely lock yourself out of until the post-game.


No can do.... I am already 35 hours in. Just got past the the photosphere. In hinesight, I sort of wish I did opt to play the original but many moons ago I already played through 3/4 of that and wanted a fresh take on things.

In all honesty ACF is not without merit IMO. They did an excellent job of maintaining the "feeling" of playing the original (quite literally in terms of control and dungeons and whatnot...) whilst pulling off quite the "facelift", if you catch my meaning. The gameplay sacrifices they made baffle me though.
Thought the music was fan-tastic in ACF. Thought the combat was ruined. Oh good, 9 enemies at once who use OBSERVE and all move before me, each taking 2-3 hits to kill. I won't be here all day.

Yes sir, that classic whistle kick off to the intro has been a ringtone on my phone for quite awhile now. LUV IT!!

After 3 months of Persona 2 play I am done... Last night at 4:04 AM (or is that the morning?) I beat Persona 2 EP. I feel somehow evolved from the experience.

Today I decided to try and pick up a backlog and tackle Wild Arms Alter Code F again. Gee golly folks... I hate picking up games I put down a year a ago. I remember the plot well enough but it took all afternoon to familiarize myself with the mechanics again. I shall not falter with this effort! I wanted to play-through Wild Arms since I was kid (when first it bested me). I don't even think I love all that much about the title aside from the soundtrack and setting to be honest, but at this point it is personal!!-LoL

I also decided to go ahead and pick up Animal Crossing New Leaf which I will be trying out post my lovely (and large) tattoo session this evening. 

Animal Crossing and Wild Arms totally fit the bill for me right now. They are just what I need to "lighten" the mood a bit after 3 months of Persona 2.

well that is enough interest to get me on board! i gotta take a hop skip over to the general discussion "friend code/gamer tag" thread later when I have a moment or two and add all you fine folk as friends.... been meaning to do that for like... years now...
791  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Animal Crossing New Leaf Tomorrow... Anyone? on: June 08, 2013, 05:32:14 PM
I don't really know which forum board this belonged on so I posted it here...

Will anyone be investing in animal crossing new leaf? I am on the fence about it personally. I have no experience with any of the other animal crossing games and the fact that the title lacks a plot or goal (aside from building up your town) doesn't seem terribly enthralling to me.

On the other hand, if a few other members of the RPGFan community were playing too I can see this being fairly occupying.

So what is the story guys? Anyone going to be playing this or have opinions in favor of or against that they care to share?

Also, for the record, I LOVE to see Dice's town-LoL

EDIT: By the way (to the powers that be here on the boards)... If I have erroneously started this thread in the wrong section please move it. I wasn't really sure what "type" of game this actually qualified as (in spite of the fact that you do assume the "role" of mayor) so I figured miscellaneous was the safest bet.

Dincrest, what makes you have a soft spot for P2 over this game? I know you praise the P2 games very highly, and those are 90's games prone to the same problems as Soul Hackers, so I'm just curious what the difference is in this case for you.

I liked the characters a LOT better.  They are far more extensively developed and all the flashbacks from when they were kids hit a LOT of emotional notes for me.  In addition, I prefer P2's battle system.  I still think it's a great battle system and I've always preferred the Persona system to the devil summoning system.  Demon contacts make more sense in Persona whereas in SMT and Soul Hackers, they're too stream-of-consciousness and don't always make sense.  I also liked P2's soundtrack more.  As far as settings go, P2's more realistic; I went to high school in the 1990s so it feels less anachronistic.  Soul Hackers suffers a bit from "1990s sci-fi" syndrome.  It's good, but not quite timeless. 

It's hard for me to say objectively why I like one more than the other.  P2 just does "it" for me.  Kinda like two girls who are hot in their own unique ways.  One does "it" for me whereas the other doesn't.  But, yeah, P2 did "it" for me back then and still does "it" for me now. 

Man it is STILL doing "it" for me after playing nothing but P2 straight since march/april-LOL

I'm almost sad to see it end. In fact, I have been milking all the optional content at the end of P2 EP for the last two weeks or so.

The real purpose for my reply, however, was to comment on the battle system. While I found it a wee-bit rough around the edges in IS, EP nails it! I LOVE the battle system in EP and can't say I can think of anything like it. The way you must rely on turn order for character combos combined with the fact that you are constantly changing what said characters can do ensures your always crafting new and progressive strategies throughout the course of the game. The system effectively kept battles out of the realm of monotony for me the entire 100+ hours I've invested in it. IS could have had the same appeal if not for the underwhelming difficulty which left me feeling as though strategy was pointless in the wake of spamming a single combo spell of whatever my choosing.

I'm calling it right now... I truly believe capcom's "big surprise" is going to be about megaman somehow. The end.

I fractured my foot falling backwards over a curb. I have a temp cast on now, and will get the real thing tomorrow afternoon. 4-6 weeks. Plus crutches. I'm trying to stay positive, but this certainly happened at a bad time. My garden is in full swing, and now I can barely even move through it. My son will help with the smaller tasks, but the rest will just have to wait. Oh, well. Shit happens, right?

Man, injury is no joke... I screwed up my back real bad back in april. I actually came on here to post about it a few weeks after the incident.... I just started posting again within the last week because of the freakin' BLACK depression the whole ordeal slung me into. I mean pain is one thing... but when pain impacts your quality of life by barring you from engaging in both what you care to do AND what you need to do life can become seemingly unbearable in time....

I have sympathy for you and your garden, friend.

Soul Hackers... I'm glad I'm getting to play it, especially since I was clamoring for it back in the Revelations: Persona for PS1 days, but it really hasn't aged that well.  It's good and all (especially the music and voice acting), but definitely stuck in the 1990s to the point where it feels a little more anachronistic than timeless.  It's good, but I'm often more compelled to play something else whenever I have the downtime. 

I'm still getting my sorry butt kicked by Snappy.  

I hope you realize his trick. You aren't supposed to do damage to him. There's another way.

Yea, don't be a fool and spam 5-30 damage for 45 minutes to beat him like i did-LoL
