It was actually the Ds library that sold me on a 3ds really. I figured with the few 3ds titles I wanted now plus the bunch that would be coming out in the future I would be kicking myself in the ass had I just cheaped out and went with the ds. I'm happy I made the move I did. I am slowly (particularly with soul hackers) breaking my aversion to hand-helds. 2 decades of gaming and I could NEVER stomach playing on a hand-held console until the 3ds XL.

I'm really looking forward to completely getting comfortable with the hand-held experience and diving into some Dragon Quest and Radiant Historia down the road.

And I am certainly amongst the many who are looking forward to Bravely Default.

Just watched the first 2 eps of karneval and red data girl... why the hell does so much new anime make me feel like I'm being dropped into the middle of something I should understand but don't...?

All I can say at present is that both are beautifully done. And I could probably appreciate both series a great deal more if I had read some manga first. Either way I'll keep tuning in out of pure curiosity now.

Real men just hack off the limb, Agent D.
Dude, if I lose an arm or my eyesight, I'm killing myself. I refuse to live without the ability to use both hands or see what I'm doing.

So you 'dual wield' it, huh?

Man, I remember the good ol' days when I could dual wield.... then I broke my sword :(

Augh. Sort of debating picking up another PS2 to have on hand in case mine dies, since they quit making them.

(Unlike LINK398, I actually have money to buy this stuff. I'm just deliriously cheap for things that aren't food).

Anyway, currently rewriting my design docs for that game engine I wrote when I was a senior in college. I want to translate it into Common Lisp and focus on end-user functionality. This might mean removing some of my arbitrary limits, like maps having to be 32 x 32 tiles with no scrolling.

Agent D, that sounds like a pinched or enflamed nerve. I think if you had circulation problems you'd be getting pain or cold spots.

On the ps2 note, that actually is not a bad idea. I think I should do the same given the size of my library...

However my purpose for posting mesh, is actually because while I was going for my daily jog with my 3ds to amass play-coins I thought of you! Given how much you walk, if you get one of these and keep it on you whilst traveling you'll be rolling in the coins my friend! Just something I thought of cause you mentioned toying with idea of getting one in the SMT thread.

In other news, Siliconera had enough awesome announcements as of late to officially make me feel over-loaded today. This is seriously shaping up to be the best year for RPGs in quite some time by my estimate.

You can summon outside of combat. The only time I've found a need to summon more whilst battling is during boss fights. And to be honest, lack of magnetite has been a complete non-issue for me thus far. Granted I'm not too far into the title yet though... I seem to burn through yen way quicker than magnetite as a result of healing costs.

I would be more excited if I hadn't JUST replayed this whole game last fall. I cannot imagine going through it again for some. While it is easily one of my favorite RPG's of all time, even I must admit, some parts were just excruciating to get through. Great game and although the mechanics did not age well at all, I feel like earthbound is in the realm of genre classics all gamers should experience (or at least have the chance too for less than 200 bucks).

It also sports one of my favorite soundtracks of all time with some of the best fan remix tracks to be made following the title EVER in my opinion.

Now get us Mother 3 outside of japan and you'll really see me start opening my wallet...

This is the first thing with "Zelda" in the title that has excited me since the Ocarina of Time came out on N64. Very cool indeed.

I stumbled onto the weird part of youtube, but I may have found gold. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjMk5PL2bjg

^^ That made my night :)

Thank you... not much actually makes me laugh out loud (though I over use the hell out of "lol" ironically)... actually nothing in recent memory. At about 45 seconds in the "you'll never see me again" had me in stitches.

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...
