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...
907  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

"i don't think he is really particular"

that's a pretty interesting quality to have when the appearance of your body is about to be changed forever.

Klyde, how much you charge for a big job like this?

My typical rate is $100 per hour but when a job is this big I know people can't realistically finance it through to completion so I cut them breaks. Usually the more hours you buy the cheaper I make it (I require all work be prepaid as I was royally screwed waaaay too many time when I first started doing completely custom work) such as 8  or 10 hours for 400. My rates vary drastically project to project.

And on the other point... you'd be surprised how little some people care when it comes to their tattoo. Most of the time it is a real let down for me as I tend to become far more interested and excited about what my clients will be "wearing" then they themselves are.  Thankfully that is not the case with this gentlemen. He has been great to work with thus far and has been keeping the lines of communication up and open since dropping his deposit. He just is more concerned with the aesthetic of the piece more than anything else I believe.
913  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Most aesthetic armor you've seen on: June 05, 2013, 12:33:09 AM
these suggestions are AWESOME!!

Does he want it to be more historic or more fantasy? Watch LoTR!

I don't think he is really particular. And I didn't even think about LoTR references... Great Suggestion.

Dark Souls has a lot in the style you're looking for I think. I've also always liked this one

That, my friend, is as gold as advice can get. Thank you.

Dunno if I'd call it Byzantine, but Gut's armor in Berserk is pretty badass.

I don't think Gut's chaos armor (forget the name) would quite work. But berserk in of itself is loaded with good material for the project! Unfortunately I think this stuff would be better suited for a personal armor design (as it is very akin to my own taste) but a bit further from what my clients aim is.

Gee golly I love berserk... I stopped reading around volume 35... need to get back to that... Griffith is one of my favorite characters of all time.

So I'm guessing he doesn't want a chainmail bikini and boobs drawn on him... right?

One armor that looks badass... but not really what you're looking for.

Only thing Bizantine-ish I can think of is Pantheon from LoL. Can't say I find his armor awesome though =/

I really like how form fitting your example is anubis! that is precisely what I need to achieve to compliment his musculature. I just need to busy it up with some details and make it sectioned off to create elements of depth and whatnot. Something in this "shape"  is definately the direction I need to move though.

So I'm working on a tattoo for a client of mine. He wants body armor tattooed from the waist up.... no joke.

As such I need some inspiration here. What is some of the coolest looking body armor you guys have come across? Any ideas are welcome as I will using multiple references as "jump off" points to draw visual styling from.

EDIT: I should have noted, this armor is going to be medieval and very "byzantine" in style. So ,while all ideas are welcome, anything along those lines would be most helpful!

So now there is an LE in addition to the CE apparently....


If I am reading this right, I am seriously disgusted with this announcement. This means that if I wanted the costumes say, I have to buy a LE in addition to already shelling out 100 for the CE.

I'm a huge fan of special editions in general but seriously... if you have a fan forking over 100 bucks shouldn't they get the same crap they could have for 60 and then some?
