Finished Kino's Journey, and Dice you were very correct, really fun and thought provoking show, so, despite some bad reviews decided to watch Kurozuka and after a marathon of 8 episodes today I must say so far I find it rather enjoyable.

I loved kino's journey!!

And to touch upon the Dream Eater Merry you recently watched.... I agree with you on that front as well.... interesting concept, executed very poorly... Odd attire in anime has never bothered me, but Merrie's gravity defying overcoat/jacket tail-thingies bugged me right from the opening theme of episode one... not that there weren't much larger problems with the short series than merries jacket but damn that bother me....

Just checked out X the TV series.... Not exactly mindblowing.... Entertaining enough I suppose.. the bi-polar- 180 turn that Kom-oo-A's character makes mid series was a bit strange... the ending was really disappointing and abrupt... but it did progress well enough to keep me watching til the end....

Now I am just waiting with baited breath to see the Berserk flick..... I know a lot of fans were unhappy with it but in all honesty I can't imagine me disliking anything "Berserk"....  ***runs off to change avatar to a griffith pic***

Klyde, those are sick tats my good man.




Color me impressed.  The last gaming tattoo I saw was a Mario 1-up mushroom, this seems significantly more complicated.

Actually, now that I think about it, the last gaming tatoo(s) I saw were a set of Foxhound logos.  Still.

Thank you for your kind words... this piece meant a lot to me and as such, so does your appreciation for it :)..... I currently have a number of gaming tats in the works but they are all larger in scale meaning they are NOT "one (session) and done" projects.... this one actually wraps around about 2/3 of the guys upper arm (if you can't tell from the pic) with X and Zero each about 7 inches in length (give or take)...... waiting for people to heal then get around to coming back for more sessions is.... well... a test of patience to say the least..... Eventually though, in the not so distant future, I will hopefully be sharing some final fantasy work, yoshi's island, a chrono trigger piece and another megaman piece.


Goddamn that's nice!  Really well done for pretty complicated work. :)
If I need a gaming tat, I know who to ask (and who to make a trip to the States for?? D: ...bah!). 

Today I worked on a paper... then I loafed and cleaned my room.  I was about to start up my paper again, but got too hungry and waited for dinner.  A good day.

Dice, if you are ever making a trip down and around northeast pennsylvania and want a tattoo, be certain to give me ample heads up. I would be more then happy to keep the schedule open for you. To do a gaming tattoo on you or anyone from the board here would be a total honor and I would be more then willing to do it insanely cheap (or even simply for trading some gaming and anime goodies!- LoL)

I just got a healed picture of a really fun tattoo I got the opportunity to do... between this piece and the fact that I nabbed X-Com for 25 bucks at wal-mart this black friday officially rocks for me :)
979  The Rest / General Discussions / Black Friday.. or "almost black" thursday? Game deals.... on: November 22, 2012, 02:40:15 PM
So, I don't do much aside from play games and work..... actually I don't do anything else... and while I know some of the best deals for holiday shopping can all be taken advantage of online, I love indulging myself in a little real life mass-madness come black friday....

For any other masochists who enjoy the economic/consumer depravity of this disgusting event, such as myself, I came across this little list of the deals....

http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=331277

To Highlight something I noticed quickly..... apparently a lot of the game specific deals at wal-mart are not revealed until scanned for purchase.... so don't let that price tag of 59.99 fool you.... X-Com truly is 25 bucks at 8pm tonite :)

That list is enough to make me drool... Rest assured, I'll be keeping an eye on a few of these for sure! Thanks for the heads up, friend!

I just saw the siliconera post with the new screens and flew over here to express how excited I was!.... Though it appears you guys beat me to it... LoL

None-the-less I"m gonna post an official "woo-hoo" because I LOVE when characters appearance is altered via equipment or class in a JRPG... Little attention to visual details like that make me happy :)

This is really looking like something I'm gonna be waiting with baited breath for.... or at least waiting for an NA release announcement..
982  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: November 11, 2012, 02:48:09 PM
I've been a baaaad gamer as of late..... I'm here for confession....

"Life" drastically reduced available playtime and internet time for me in the last month or so.... Without exploring those gory details, I'm happy to report that balance is being re-established.... Meaning 1-2 hours of gaming a day fits neatly back into the schedule and DAMN do I have some catching up to do as I still have a # of titles to finish up before I get to X-Com and Mugen Souls..... Any-hoo....

Most recently I just finished Corpse Party. With a few excruciating instances/aspects aside (like having to restart chapter 5 like 3 times before beating it) I absolutely LOVED this game. I never thought survival-horror could be so freakin' cool in 16-bit top down style... And with the plethora of bad endings and extra chapter/story content that doesn't require a drastic amount of my time to see, I can say, honestly, this is the only title I have played in a long time with real replay value for me.... Typically no matter how much I like a game and know I can bleed if for quite a bit more content, once the credits roll I'm through.

So corpse party, totally gets 2 thumbs up in my book. Even with the ridiculously  regurgitated maps and gameplay, the title just never got stale for me ..........the best part, was I actually felt legitimately creeped-out playing it. I'll be looking forward to the sequel.

In other news, I'm still making my way through the tiny world-yet long tale that is Breath of Fire 3. I've been playing this game for like a freaking month and a half now....  Currently I'm off to find the legendary mariner... I shudder to think of how much I have missed thus far though as I'm finding the most challenging part of this game to be discovering the masters, genes and optional stuff... Straight up battle difficulty became an afterthought as soon as I aquired the warrior gene (seriously unbalanced to the point where I have beaten every boss since getting the gene in 2-3 turns transformed).

So I'm still wading in the classic-styled gaming goodness I decided to indulge back in august... But my desire to get back to and finish Agarest 2 and Hyperdimension MK2 (been playing off and on since release-LoL) to finally move on to some new current gen stuff is really starting to get to me.

Two hours is fast.  I've been downloading it for like 5 hours now and it's still not done.  Mind you, my connection is extremely fast when connecting to anything besides Sony's servers.  But anything from PSN is always excruciatingly slow...

I recently connected my PS3 via ethernet instead of wireless.  I went from numbing slowness to great speed.  Might be a part of the PS3's wireless adapter being crap.  Of course, I have an OLD 60GB model, so that may just be what's going on there.

Ditto.  I always hated how slow PSN was with anything on wireless on my old 60gb model.  I plugged in an ethernet cable to try with P4A and PSN became much more responsive/fast.  I tried playing Persona Arena wired and wireless and the wireless was incredibly slow.  Refreshing for matches was slow.  Connecting to the server after a match could sometimes take 40-60 seconds after every match.  General slowness pretty much with anything that needed to connect to something.  Sucked.  Wired worked basically how my xbox wireless has always worked.  Responsive, lobbies/player lists refreshed faster, connections post-match took under 5 seconds.  I wish it wasn't such a hassle to use wired because it's so much better.

You guys are not kidding...... I use two 60gb Ps3's (one in my primary living/playing/working space and one in my bedroom), one is a wired connection and the other is not..... the difference is like night and day...

On the Okami note, I'm pretty excited about this.... I never got a chance to play okami before but always heard wonderful things so this is totally on the "to-play" list.... I just need to polish off corpse party and breath of fire 3 first.....well actually I guess then I have x-com, the rest of agarest 2 to finish and I really wanted to give Nights Into Dreams a whirl.... so maybe its more along the lines of my "play next year list"-LoL..... but its on the list none-the-less :)
984  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: Klyde's Anime- HUGE LOT auction link- 10 box sets- 10/30 update on: October 31, 2012, 03:42:14 AM
Okay, I don't remember seeing any of those that are in the eBay Auction among your list that you had been posting here. Which is a shame, since some of those I might have bought individually. Oh well, good luck on your auction.

You are indeed correct, and I am very sorry about that fact... the truth of the matter is I need to make bucks like yesterday (really really fast) and I really had no intention of selling these....... So my hand was sort of forced to do this on the fly.... believe me I would MUCH rather deal with all you folk here than e-bay.... First off I a lot the e-bay formalities.. Second I feel like you guys or sort of like friends to me.... Friends should always get first crack at cool merchandise at a good price.... But the necessity to pay my bills compromised me in this instance.

Operation Suzaku aims to bring Final Fantasy Type-0 Westward -- Source: Nova Crystallis

http://operation-suzaku.com/

"The one year anniversary of Final Fantasy Type-0 has brought with it a new fan movement. The goal of this initiative is to change Square Enix's position on bringing the title to the west. But it's much more than that.

Operation Suzaku is not just a petition. The group behind it plans on even more action, with details to be shared at a later date. More importantly, their focus is *only* on Final Fantasy Type-0."


This is a major pipe-dream in my opinion... But whatever, let a man dream... I'll sign for what its worth...

They can use an editor or something to fix the typo-laden news update though.... Sounds as though it was written by high school student failing english class.... I by NO means am an excellent typist.... My wording sucks at times, I know it.... but I'm also not trying to be taken seriously enough to attract the attention of one of the largest names in the gaming industry, in effort to see a localization on platform that has less "to be released" titles left to its life than I have fingers to count them.

I am not trying to be a "debbie downer" here folks but does anyone else view this as too little too late?....
986  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: Klyde's Anime- HUGE LOT auction link- 10 box sets on: October 30, 2012, 02:55:25 AM
ok here it is.... the final bump and update folks.... check out the main post for the update!... feel free to delete this thread after the auctions end
987  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Klyde's Steam and Clock Punk Thread on: October 30, 2012, 02:32:33 AM
WELCOME TO THE REVIVAL OF KLYDE's STEAMPUNK AND CLOCKPUNK THREAD!!! Mwaaaahahahaha!

I, Klyde Chroma, welcome you....... and apologize for slacking off and never running more contests or continuing to update this.... But I'm trying to make amends here......

I'm gonna cut right to the chase here.... The good stuff... the NEW stuff... the for sale stuff  :)

These are all part of a new series I am doing called "The Taste of Time Collection".... why you ask?.... simple... They all feature real human teeth.



Here we have Vamp-Tockula! Just in time for halloween! And here is e-bay auction if anyone is interested... http://www.ebay.com/itm/321012925449?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649



Next, Count-Tickula!.... Human eye teeth just make great fangs... expect a few more vampire-esque creations in the future.... and the ebay auction.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Steampunk-sculpture-with-REAL-HUMAN-TEETH-handmade-Direct-from-artist-/321013439587?pt=Art_Sculpture&hash=item4abde45c63



Last, but certainly not least, Molar the Tank!... and the ebay auction.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Handmade-Steampunk-Sculpture-with-REAL-human-teeth-Direct-from-Artist-/321013101562?pt=Art_Sculpture&hash=item4abddf33fa

NOTE ABOUT EBAY AUCTIONS: I really doubt these are gonna sell on e-bay only because they are my first auctions.... as such however they are discounted a bit.... if you have your eye on one and can't afford it ATM don't fret... that which doesn't sell will either be relisted or thrown on etsy.

NOTE ABOUT CONTESTS: I do intend on doing more contests in the future but right now the schedule is a bit tight......

LAST NOTE....... I hope it was appropriate to revive this thread rather than start a new one.... if it was improper forum conduct I am sorry.... please don't hollar at me... I am very sensitive....

EDIT: I screwed up when I sized these images.... they were supposed to be a bit smaller than this specifically for the forum... If this is a problem let me know and I'll resize them.
 
988  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: October 24, 2012, 05:59:36 PM
NO ONE BUMP THIS F&*@#^&@ING TOPIC UNLESS IT LOCALIZATION ANNOUNCING!! >=(

Sigh.... nah, whatever.  I'm just blue.

I may be selling Game and OST soon if anyone is interested.

Thats funny to me.... because although I have not posted in this thread once til now, I've checked it almost every day, that I see it bumped, hoping for that very same news-LoL

I'm not gonna lose sleep over this one though.... I learned my lesson with Xenoblade.... the measures I went to, to play that game when it came out in PAL territories was ...... disturbing.... only to have the stateside announcement roll in when I was about 20 or so hours into the title....  never again....

From now on I will accept what it is we get and do not here in the states.... its not like I don't have a backlog to occupy me, or anything.... oh unless its old Super Famicom titles we didn't get.... I have a funny obsession with those.... I feel like the JRPG's of that era was like an alternate-reality childhood I can now experience as an adult or something.... In other words, they prove nostalgic to play though I never saw them before.... yea, I need those.... but thats off topic, and probably better suited to be discussed with a psychologist or something...

989  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nippon Ichi's Project: D "Disgaea D2" for PS3, 2013 on: October 24, 2012, 05:14:18 PM
the problem for me is ive never been a fan of the D1 protags.

I completely get that actually.... I freakin' loved Disgaea, and had such expectations for D2.... couldn't get into it at all though on account of really not enjoying the cast what-so-ever.... Funny how pertinent that seems to these games in regard to how much I enjoy em.... I also was rarely impressed with any cast for the "Tales" franchise but loved all those....
990  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Corpse Party: Book of Shadows is coming to US and Europe this winter on: October 22, 2012, 07:47:53 PM
Ahhhh! I still didn't get to the first!! I suppose now is a good time for me to do that considering it is going on sale tomarrow.... I almost just impulse bought it before reading about the sale... close call indeed....
