Go right into it. You'll see why immediately. They flow beautifully together, and EP is twice as good.

Woooooh boy... now that sounds mighty convincing (not that I need much convincing at this point).

What to do... I've got 1 yay and 1 nay... anyone care to tip the scale?

That tattoo rocks! Not exactly the prettiest this I have ever seen as far as shading and execution but the placement and design totally make it freakin' awesome!!! **jealous**

On another note I finally got to reading the first volume of attack on titan. My impression? Best suggested reading in some time!! I went out and immediately got volume 2. I haven't been this excited about reading a manga since berserk.

In anime news I think I have really finally gotten over my problem with subs! I am actually pretty stoked about tuning into some of the newly airing series. There are so many that look tempting to me right now...

Sorry to double post but I feel today, I have earned it-LOL


I've done it! I beat P2 IS!! I now believe Xibalba was created as some type of twisted joke or test of patience... there is no freakin' way designers could not have realized how longwinded that place became! In all honesty I really can't think of one other dungeon in my 20 odd years of gaming that tried my patience in the same way xibalba did.

Without getting into spoilers the ending was great. While I wouldn't go so far as to say stellar, I really felt a sense of closure and completion. It makes me reeeeaaaaaal curious as to how things go in eternal punishment all things considered.

So curious I now feel even more tempted to move right into Eternal Punishment without skipping a beat.... Meshgear advised against this over in the gaming journal and I think I am going to listen to his advice, as any time I don't listen to the wisdom of the board here I regret it... Probably gonna make soul hackers my next SMT venture next week and play P4 Arena in the meantime to get my fix.

Though I am still curious how anyone else feels about IS and EP as a whole? I know EP is a direct sequel but how much so? Does anyone else see a benefit or detriment to moving right into it?

That LE looks mighty fine to me! They got my hundred bucks :)
815  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: April 10, 2013, 03:08:36 PM
Well that stinks. :/ Looks like I'm just missing out on these ones then.

Now, now, I would become a negative-nel over it (see what I did there... your name is nel...LoL) if I were you.

I personally think Kevadu is right about a ps3 price drop. Actually I think he is right in a huge way. If you look at the prices of ps3 games pre-owned now (not too expensive) and take into account how long the ps3 has been in production you can see that in the not so distant future, these systems and games are going to be hella-accessible pretty cheap. In other words, whereas in the past it took many years for games and systems to devalue and get mega price-cuts, I really don't think your going to be waiting that long to see the same relative drop in this gens hardware and software.

In fact I'll be so bold as to predict that shortly after the release of the PS4, if you watch ebay instead of retailers, you can get at least some model of the ps3 and a copy of graces F for under a 100 bucks. And  if that is not the case, I at least garuntee you'll be able to get the system for that.

I may sound nuts but I really believe with how long this gen has been around in high production there is gonna be more hardware floating around that people are trying to pawn off, come this time next year, than you can shake a stick at.

Is there a quick way to get satellite uplinks? That shit seems like it's taking forever

i can't stress enough how making uplinks before seeing a necessity for them will save you such head-aches in the long run... just make em as you have the resources/time to do so. By the time you see a nation in danger of leaving the council chances are slim your gonna be able to pull off uplink construction and launch a satelite before the months end.

in regard specifically to your question if there is a quicker way to  make them I'd love to have  known about it! sure would have made my play-through a wee bit easier...

Klyde - I get around the whole "what will I play next?" deal by organizing my backlog, planning which games to play months in advance, and then keeping an updated list in forum posts and my blog.  Sure, sometimes things come up and screw up my plans (hey there, Persona 4 second cycle!), but overall I'm really happy with it.  I haven't cut into my backlog this well in a decade. 

Sorry I forgot to respond to this.

Organizing a plan of attack and routine to tackle the backlog was what I initially did. It worked well. Got it down to Wild Arm ACF, Agarest 2 and Growlanser WoT.... Then I lost steam. My discipline waned.

I think I simply need to reinstate my gaming routine of week-day-new-stuff and week-end-backloggery until I polish off that list.... That was the strategy I employed to get through rorona, neptunia mk2, and most recently all the post-game ni no content.

Regardless, I thank you for your sound advice monsoon. I really appreciate anyone who entertains and helps me sort out the madness.

I may be able to pull off a solid Symphonia run if I can get my hands on my Wii again. My sister's a bit of a grubby whore about it, always saying it's hers even though I paid for half of it, and bought EVERYTHING she has for it. I did graces F well enough that I don't need to go back anytime soon.

Personally, I think I oughta re-do my Abyss run, got to the last third of the game and just got sidetracked in life. Sucks, was enjoying it immensely.

Same thing happened to me with abyss!

I also never played vesperia because of it x-box exclusiveness. I got an x-box not too long ago with soul purpose of playing the title actually-LoL

 I really wanted to get to vesperia soon. It was my next intended venture so to speak. But I fear if I do a tales run now I may burn myself out a bit for xilia later this year. But seeing as how now its august as opposed to july maybe I'll reconsider...

Motherfucker, I may just have to have a talk with my Wii.  I'll get the brass knuckles.  Or go to the settings page and mess around until I can make it work.

Definately try the "power" button on the remote before beating the snot out of the wii... last time I checked that console doesn't put up much of a fight.

Booted up Tales of Graces f for like the first time since about 10 months..... i hane no idea what the fuck -- forgotten everything.  Anyone knowwhy I'm making gel seeds in my eleth mixer???  I remember saying it was a good idea at some point.

High production rate maybe? if memory serves I think I found it best to make sure the eleth mixer was cranking crap out as much as possible... I found myself either producing things out of either A) necessity or B) to increase the mixers level due to the production frequency. I would venture to guess that "b" is the answer to your question.

then again the eleth mixer in the scope of things was really an afterthought for me so my memory of its utility is foggy. the game was plenty easy enough without even needing to exploit the mixers' function.

I've been reading a lot lately so I haven't really gamed in a few months; I did find myself feeling like some Mario so I started up the Wii and have been working through Mario 3.  Going back to the Wii after getting used to PS3 is difficult.  Having to go over to the TV/console to turn on the Wii like some goddamn BARBARIAN rather than just pushing a button on the controller to turn it on... :(

In other news I watched the season six Mad Men premiere and loved the general vibe of the show so now I'm stuck 'acquiring' and watching seasons one to five uber-fast.  I'm also trying to watch and then 'can' shows quickly since downloading 26 seasons of the original Doctor Who is really doing some serious damage to the HD space on my laptop.  On a semi-related note the BBC show Sherlock is awesome.

Unless I have been abusing my uber-cool-telekinetic-tattoo-power without realizing it,  I swear the wii mote starts up the system...
821  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: April 08, 2013, 03:08:17 PM
Definitely do not play EP immediately after IS.

--edit---

Goddamn jade cocoon has an interesting aesthetic. It's like half things fall apart, half egypt, half korea, and half uh that indigenous tribe of bug people that live in brazil.

Thanks for the tip mesh! I hate picking my next game and always need the communities advice and believe me... I really appreciate it! I will heed your warning.

Even though I'm really feeling Ar Tonelico 3 I'm starting to lean toward Overclocked because I already started it. That and if I don't finish a 3ds game soon I will begin to feel defeated in some sense-LoL

I even have Radiant Historia for the DS sitting on the shelf since release and haven't played that yet either....  My ds and 3ds library needs some attention at this point to justify how much I spent collecting the damn things.

EDIT: I wish we had a sticky thread somewhere to address this issue for the indecisive gamer with too many titles on his or her shelf. Some system set up where the community voted on said players "next" game. I would have made the thread ages ago but something tells me most people don't turn it into quite so big a problem as I tend to-LoL

EDIT AGAIN: I just remembered soul hackers is also coming out next week.... and I get REAL excited to play new games while everyone here is doing the same.... oh god, the madness... klyde is so confused.... maybe I should just hold off on overclocked as well and walk for soul hackers? sorry for exposing all you fine folk to the chaos that ensues within my grey matter...

I arrived at Xibalba's front step via the silver river early saturday morning in persona 2 IS.... it is late sunday and I'm still there... geeeeeee golly...

And of course now I enter the most trying phase of my gaming routine. SELECTING THE NEXT TITLE TO PLAY!! i feel really compromised this time... there is a lot on my shelf really demanding my attention.

On deck and being decided on at the moment...

1. Finish Wild Arms Alter Code F (stopped at the fake ending or sorts)
2. Finish Agarest 2 (at the end of the 2nd gen, loved it, should have never put it down)
3. Finally play Ar Tonelico 3 (had the LE since release, steared clear as a result of what I knew of the title.... always bugged me I didn't complete the franchise... and to be honest I think after playing innocent sin this could prove "refreshing"... really leaning toward this one right now)
4. Move right into Eternal Punishment (crazy as it may seem, this seems to be the most logical way to enjoy the plot, although the gameplay..... i don't know how much more I could take)
5. Devil Summoner Overclocked (i am determined to finally conquer a DS title)
6. Lost Odyssey (I still have yet to play one X Box 360 exclusive and its driving my mad)

So I'm at a six way split here.... decsions, decisions...

my local gamestop has it listed for july

I triple checked and every gamestop still has it listed for july with not so much as a whisper of a delay abound... I'm hoping for july personally to put some distance between this and some of the stuff I'm looking forward to in the fall.
824  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lord British's Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues on: April 07, 2013, 07:19:29 PM
This is about as far from my personal taste as you can get. That said, the "Art Creation and Trade" feature sounds cool to me as does having different roles for your pets.

Certainly has some promising aspects going for it. I'm always shocked when I see something and gets me to scratch my head and go "hmmm, haven't seen it done quite like that..."

If this looked a wee-bit prettier and was on a home console and not pc I'd be more enticed.

Did tits ever a get a UMD release?

Yes, but don't count on it for the rest of the series (if they even come out on PSP...).

Agent D., Klyde was pointing out (correctly) that the PSP Go has bluetooth and can work with a normal PS3 controller which is kind of handy when you're playing it on the TV (though I don't know when else you would want to to that...).

I really recommend getting a grip for the PSP.  I find the system incredibly uncomfortable without one.  But maybe that's just me.

Thats for clarifying my point kevadu!

Yes I have used all models capable of being hooked to the tv (2000, 3000 and go). The "go" has the nicest "tv setup" going for it due to the blue tooth deal but I personally use the 3000 because I own so many UMD's. The 3000 has a slightly better color vibrancy going for it on the tv compared to the 2000. However, NOT hooked up the tv I actually liked the 2000 more... but that is not how klyde plays his psp, no sir...

First a word about Trails in the Sky... hands down, without even thinking about it, absolute must buy/play. One of the best games I played in years. The only thing holding it back is the lack of localized sequels.

And now a word of warning on Star Ocean first departure... while looks may prove decieving,  it is NOT star ocean 2 quality by any stetch. I'm not saying its a terrible game... what I am saying though is that, while I love the PSP Star Ocean 2, in hinesight I actually appreciate the original super famicom star ocean in terms of the first.

Lastly...


 and felt pangs of FOREVER ALONE.


... I know those pangs all too well, my heavily-sugared comrad! But fear not!! If I have learned anything from anime and JRPG's it is that eventually everyone makes friends and discovers love! And if I don't well I figure I've seen enough of it in the aforementioned media to get the picture...
