I'm going to get it Friday if my paycheck is correct and I can find both a PS3 slim and a copy of this game. 

What's the hacker/cheater scene like with PS3 online?  I guess you can't install linux on PS3's anymore or something... is that to prevent cheating?  You have to be within a few levels of another player in order to enter their world, but is that enough protection?

I don't mind getting ganked, but if I die because the other person was cheating...

After six posts in a row, it's time for me to say that I didn't like this game at all.

This generation is too used to instant gratification games where you can breeze through on a single life without any practice.

I agree, have you seen Bayonetta in very easy? I'd understand easy but what's the point in playing very easy? It's kinda like watching a movie.

Anyway, is Valkyrie Profile (and Valkyrie Profile 2) considered difficult for an RPG? I was kinda struggling to finish the game (even overlevelling won't work in the final boss that much).

One handed Bayonetta mode is for jacking off :P  It's no indicator of the generation being spoiled :P

The word I would use to describe games like this is "tense".  Not "intense", just "tense".  Look how slow the gameplay is in DS.  How can it be anything but memorization?

I'm with you Gen, 100%.  People called Contra: Shattered Soldier hard.  Like DDR, games based on 'megaman memorization' just require practice.  It's not like an FPS where some people simply won't be as good as others.

Sorry to drag KeeperX back into this, but he didn't like the control scheme in Killer7, claiming to have turned it off after 10 minutes and writing it off as garbage.  That's fine, but he seems to hate all of the less conventional "hard" games.  God knows he'd kick my ass at NHL10 (that's what I call hard), but I wouldn't go with his opinion on games like this.  Not that he had one in his review, but surely you catch my drift.  Yes I'm looking at you Grim.

The reason I like Contra: SS, Baroque, and God Hand is that they were meant to be fucking played, not "solved", knaaa~ mean?

Right on man.  It is an interesting situation.
771  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Demon's Souls on: October 06, 2009, 03:34:20 AM
I had to stop reading the Demon's Souls review after only a few paragraphs, knowing that the reviewer hated Baroque.  You could practically copy and paste the first and third paragraphs for use in a Baroque review.  Yet, those common features are to be praised in Demon's Souls.

Very different games, yes.  I just wanted to point this out as these concepts are being presented as if they were original.  I don't mean to insult the reviewer at all; it's a great review.  But you suck for hating Baroque :P

I think this is great considering how late I am getting to this generation (I may have finally landed a job).  I don't know if the price of SFIV has dropped already, but I'd still rather buy it at $40 the first time and not have to deal with DLC.

I felt like I was bouncing around different Persona's recklessly in P3.  In P4, I had a more intimate, controlled progression... I stuck to personas with high social links, paid attention to the fusion forecast... The systems are pretty much the same in both games, so I'm not sure why it suddenly clicked for me in P4. 
774  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Persona 3 portable on: September 07, 2009, 02:28:45 AM
When I get a PSP, I'll definitely get this game.  After beating P4, I felt that I could obliterate P3... but I don't replay games until a few years pass or something.

I'm ready to replay P3 though!  P4 taught me how to really work the system... so why not let the newest version of P3 be my testing ground?

I'm calling from Internet Service Providings would you be interested in switching your internet servicing providings to a provider that provides a better service of internet service providings than your current provider?
776  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Persona 3 portable on: September 04, 2009, 12:20:39 AM
There goes that theory.

Aw, a Wiki search determines that there is no 22 Fool can be 0 or 22. There's 22 cards in total...

Or it stands for all 22 arcana :P

Probably similar to the Ace in a deck of playing cards.  You're the main character; you're the ace.  Seems like a western reference... but I don't know the cultural relevance of playing cards.

I watched Timecop last night.  Van Damme has special place in my heterosexual heart.

PS:  the movie sucks, but I had fun.

I'm trying to hit lvl 12 with my warrior in the dunes east of Selbina, from San d'Oria.  Some days I can get a group, other days I cannot.  I'd go to La Theine and solo, but grouping is a little more fun, and I can simply log in and turn on my group flag and wait.

This thread has inspired me to return to FFXI (WoW, just like anything else in life, gets old after a while too).

I have a quick question, though.  I read somewhere that if you cancel your POL account, you have to buy the game all over again.  I remembered my login info, and tried to login to the main FFXI site and saw this:


"PlayOnline services currently cannot be accessed because the selected PlayOnline account has already been closed, or because service fees have not been paid. By reactivating your PlayOnline account, you will be able to access PlayOnline services again. For more information, please log in to the PlayOnline Viewer."

I'm assuming it just means that I have to resubscribe.  However, when a friend of mine tried his POL info at the site, it simply told him that his account didn't have any active content IDs.

I won't actually be reactivating until Sunday so this is just foreplay, but if there is a quick and easy explanation that'd be nice.

Also, $25 for a character world transfer!  That sealed the deal for my return.
