On the topic of Suikoden 5, it is easily my favorite game in the Suikoden series.I don't remember the load times being an issue for me, and I absolutely love the storyline in that game.

And shit forgot about her. And Viki too for that matter.
There isn't really a whole lot to explain about Viki, she has the most powerful teleportation magic in existence and it happens to go crazy when she sneezes. Just headcannon her as a time lord with an internal TARDIS and boom everything works. :p

So just occurred to me, this topic has not covered the biggest news story in gaming this week. Lizard Squad. Basically a bunch of man children (or idiotic teens) who have been doing DDOS attacks on various web services recently including League of Legends, Blizzard, Twitch, PSN, and I believe Xbox Live. Oh, and they tweeted a bomb threat to a plane with a Sony Executive on it. So yeah, they are going to jail the moment the FBI tracks them down.

Are there unique chests in fractured dimensions? Or, rather, chests with unique items?

Mostly just seems to be gald/duplicate accessories. Which I'll happily skip.
There is at least one that has a mildly important item in it. I believe it is the fractured dimension in chapter 10 that has a dual sword that is only available there and which is a required item to construct the ultimate dual swords. Might be others, but that is the only one I have heard of (not actually there yet myself)

Am I the only one seeing a significant problem here or am I insane/the only sane one?
I certainly see the problems you are describing in the way you are characterizing the situation. I just am not familiar enough with the situation to be able to add anything to the discussion.

Eh knew the multiplayer was coming due to a leaked achievement list (which based on an FAQ is apparently an outdated achievement list), so I am neither shocked nor upset over this.

Tales of Symphonia: DotNW (Chronicles version)
Just pretend this one does not exist. You'll be happier. Tempted to say the same for Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria, but its loli-stalker ending does not compare with the horror that is DotNW.

= Unless the game starts paying off 50k per job, I have no idea how the full 20 mill can get paid without putting in some MAD hours into the game.
Post game you can fight powered up versions of the strong monsters, which from what I've heard pay ridiculous amounts of cash (and I assume job points). So I assume that they are how you pay it off. Although I just hit 1 million payed off and I am in chapter 5 or 6, so with enough grinding you can probably pull it off before the end of the game.

You know, I really love the anime cut scene opening for this game. Especially the Jude/Milla fighting together portion and the Ludger/Julius fight afterwards. Barely made any progress last night although I have finally gotten to the core of the plot (chapter 5ish) so that is nice. But for now it is time to explore the world once more!

I see the hate for Ludger to be long lasting within the Tales communities and discussions therein for ages to come. That being said, I always tip my hat to Tales for their bold moves because they always make em work by my measure and Ludger is no exception for me.

Wow.....Asbel aka the character (well I guess it was a joint effort with Cheria) that completely destroyed Tales of Graces f for me in fourth, and Emil the worst main character in a Tales of game in 8th. I am in awe.

So I feel like I have to comment about how amazing this week World Trigger (the one officially released yesterday, not the one that gets leaked tomorrow) was. I really love this series. It is amazing, and the end of the war arc is finally in sight. Awesome aftermath for last week's battle, and I look forward to seeing the aftermath of the attack at the end of this chapter. Would be my chapter of the week were it not for One Piece having a great ending (and teasing that we might finally have Robin fight someone of merit).

Everything's Awful, But It's Not That Bad -- The Escapist

Jim got out of his character for the video of this week.

Also, Capcom Asia announced that the psychical release of biohazard HD Remaster is gonna have Japanese dub. There's also something about DLC that I can't tell what it is because the description they left on Facebook is in Chinese.

EDIT: A Letter from the CEO -- Twitch

"Today (August 25, 2014), I'm pleased to announce we've been acquired by Amazon."

Nobody expects; The Amazon Acquisition.

I'm not all that surprised. After all, Amazon can't fully turn to the dark side of corporate monopolies if Google or Facebook gobbles them up first. The Internet will probably turn into the Romance of the Three Corporate Empires at the rate its going.
....Well crap, which Kingdom am I going to be pledging my loyalty to then? I love Google and Amazon. Facebook can die in a fire.

Good luck with that. Personally I've managed to whittle my backlog down to only about 6 games at the moment down from like 14 a year or so ago. Helps that their have been minimum releases that I was looking forward to this year.

Personally, I always complete every game, platinum the games also if they have trophies (well assuming it is an RPG....which unfortunately meant I had to platinum Dawn of the New World, ugh).

Seriously, it's nice to meet another fan. Didn't know you mentioned the games a few pages back, thought no one cared about the franchise anymore.
Another fan here. I love the games. Don't know if I could ever replay the original games at this point considering how....dated the gameplay is at this point, but I still love them and I love G.U. as well.

I really dislike Ludger's semi-muteness. When combined with the rest of the cast talking in scenes, constantly cutting to him with just a single nod ends up making me feel like Ludger is mentally handicapped, which I'm pretty sure was not the intent. Even when I hacked my save to enable the New Game+ option of Ludger's voice only marginally helps because the scene choreography is exactly the same (helps more so with skits than anything else).

Dude's probably just an outdated figurehead like the British Royal Family.
Britain would be a much more potent world power if the queen was capable of single handedly assaulting military bases. Charles would just f it up if he tried though. :p

-Speaking of cats, it feels like I'm kidnapping the entire world's cat population in the name of the Queen of Crazy Catladies. Oh well, atleast they're useful... The 60-something I have right now are starting to bring back some bigger batches of items. Nice. But uhm, it feels like there are locations missing from the list. I don't see Hamil on there anywhere... I'm a going blind, is my game doing something weird or are the people over at Namco Bandai a bunch of Hamil haters?
The cat in Hamil is on top of the tree scaffolding(can't think of a better term) in the vineyard. So the person who is a Hamil hater is you for not fully exploring Hamil!!! *disapproving glare*

On the topic of the cats. God damn cats, get me more items! I mean yes the cat guns were nice, but they don't fire cats at the enemy and you followed that up with a freaking loincloth. >.>

Edit: Great my hoard of cats just found Sasuke. Now I have to worry about him betraying them all and using magic eyeball powers on all of them. Damn cats. >.> :p

Streaming games doesn't really bring up any new concerns for me beyond the general issues that come with all cloud based systems (i.e., everything in the cloud exists only at the whims of someone I have no control over). Just as digital downloads didn't kill off physical releases, streaming won't kill off digital releases or physical releases anytime soon. My only issue with Playstation Now is that the pricing is poorly chosen.

Watching the video you link to, that guy is freaking paranoid. I don't see the majority of his fears having a chance of occurring. Worst that I could see happening is EA releasing a single game as rent only, getting back lash, and then moving away from it.
255  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Why would I buy a ps4? on: August 23, 2014, 06:36:49 AM
At the moment the only real reason to pick the PS4 for RPGs is if you want to get the slightly better versions (when compared to the PS3 versions) of multi-platform releases such as Natural Doctrine, Dragon Age Inquisition, or Witcher 3. I believe the first PS4/XBONE generation exclusive RPG (Lords of the Fallen) is coming out soon, but I don't know if that game is going to be any good.

However eventually you are going to want to pick a PS4 up as it will inevitably be the system for RPGs as support for the PS3 generation dies out over the next few years. Some games that you'll need a PS4 or XBONE (although I don't know why you want an XBONE) to play are Final Fantasy Type-0 and Kingdom Hearts 3. More are sure to follow.
