Started MGS2 yesterday. Based on the number of dog tags I have, I think I am about 2/3s of the way through. Going to be working on this one for a while because there is apparently a trophy for collecting all dog tags on all difficulties. Yay?

^Ugh, I hate when they switch the X and O buttons, especially if you can't easily remap the buttons. I was playing Dragon Quest VIII the other day and it was like I had never played a game before - I kept having to look at the controller, frequently hitting the wrong buttons...ugh...

Sad to hear you lost progress due to a little mistake, though. =(
Well technically speaking they didn't switch the X and O buttons. My understanding is that in Japan the standard is that O is confirm and X is cancel, so what they did was not switch it...probably because MGS is old enough that the US standard of X for confirm hadn't become so ingrained yet.

O.o That pie is staring at me.

I think that once all of the cast members are revealed, the full cut of that opening scene will have all of them skating / dancing whatever on that highway overpass.  Right now the trailer scenes are edited in a way that seems disjointed.  Still looks fresh as f***. 
Yeah, pretty sure that is what is going on here. Pretty sure they did something similar with some of the earlier trailers with opening footage as well. For example, fox mask guy was not in the skating scene in the previous skating sequence, so they are clearly making sure to not reveal too much of their hand...or face. Get it? because masks? eh eh eh? I'll go hang my head in shame in the corner now...

So this was basically me last night as I finished up my second playthrough of MGS.

"Really got the exact same rank even though I used Stealth the entire time? Oh well. Yes I would like to save so I can have a save file with both stealth and the bandanna and then get to bed." *presses X* "Huh why am I at the title screen instead of the save screen?" *realizes he hit X instead of O* "FUUUUUUUUUUUU..."

Don't think I'll be replaying again as I hate the final fight and the second phase of the fight right before the final fight

So a thought occurs to me while watching the most recent trailer, did we know that the masks the characters wear are their persona summoning method prior to the most recent trailer? I don't recall knowing that before. Either way, doing that is so freaking on the nose considering what concept of a persona represents that it is kind of hilarious to me. XP

Been playing Metal Gear Solid 1. Going to be slowly playing through the series. Game's story is fun so far. Feels like it gets a little preachy whenever it goes to nuclear stock footage, but otherwise excellent story. Controls suck though. >.> Well I'm exaggerating, but I don't have control stick use and the confirm button is stuck on O, so I am looking forward to not having to deal with that once I am done with the game. Although I am planning on at least two playthroughs, so I am probably going to be cursing at whatever game I play next as I have to relearn using X for confirm. >.>

Also been playing Rune Factory 4. Basically done with combat in the game, so I am just dealing with farming and making everyone love me, which will be very easy once I can start growing Emery flowers and making Love Potions out of them.

Please don't tempt me! I've been playing Hyrule Warriors since February or March. I've clocked about 140 hours into it. I must stop and move on!

Hey, Dragon Quest Heroes...
500 attack Megaton Hammer. You know you want it! :p

By the way, based on what has happened in the story so far and everything we know, I made a prediction with a friend that Kingdom Hearts 3 would open with Kairi's Mark of Mastery being a mission to go to the realm of darkness and rescue Aqua and I'm just posting that here so I can brag about being right when I am.

That would be hilarious to me since, KHDDD spoilers:

Sora has been using a Keyblade for the longest of the trio and he has yet to pass the Mark of Mastery. So Kairi, the one with the least training taking the test before Sora had passed would just be hilarious to me.

Master Sword skill in Hyrule Warriors has been unlocked. It was a nice reward, but I think I'm going to force myself to put the game down now so I can move onto something else.
But now that you have unlocked the Master Sword, you need to unlock the super awesome skill (Legendary?) on every other weapon so that you have super weapons of every type!

*throws his debit card at his monitor* Take it all, just give me that game!

My only critique atm, is I kind of wish they gave those three girls at the end of the trailer different hair colors as I'm 90% certain they are supposed to be different girls and they could use some more distinction between them other than hair style, clothes, and glowing tattoo location.

How has this not been mentioned yet? New Danganronpa announced. Not too many details yet other than it will be Danganronpa V3 (and probably some subtitle that hasn't been revealed yet.
41  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Developers vs Publishers (who's game is it anyway?) on: September 13, 2015, 07:18:27 AM
I never liked the concept of publishers being different from developers. Monolith was a good example there, as because they were pressured to release their game by their publisher, we got Xenogear's second disc of horrific shit. Being a publisher just makes you a money hungry asshole to developers, but being both like the current SE seems to be mostly a blessing and maybe a tiny bit of a curse. No deadlines to follow (or more specifically, unrealistic ones), no secondary input about ways to generate more revenue by cutting and piecing content together for dlc, just the company trying to make something that will sell well and please fans, which will make them more money.
Eh Monolith has nothing to do with Xenogears...alright that isn't entirely true. Monolith did not exist at the time Xenogears was released as it was essentially created by the core members of the Xenogears team after Xenogears was released (many assume because of disc 2). Xenogears was developed entirely in house by Square.

I would consider the developer the one more responsible for the game (flaws and all). It just might sometimes be easier to attribute the game to the publisher if the publisher is better known or owns the rights to the IP even though the developer is more likely responsible for the game's strengths and weaknesses.

Listen.... *pats*  Listen... you need help.  I know you think you need this, but if you just get through the detoxification process, you'll be better off, I promise.  Get someone you trust to be your Sponsor.  When you feel like buying another Amiibo, call them up and tell them how weak and vulnerable you feel.  Allow them to remind you of all the reasons why you shouldn't spend your money on Amiibos.  You're never going to get through this alone, man.
Eh, or I could just continue to buy them for decorating my living room. They do cost less than a new end table would!

Plus 32 (well 33 once I get my Classic 8-bit Mario) is nowhere near enough awesomeness in my living room! :p
44  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Can you tell me about Suikoden II? on: September 11, 2015, 06:38:02 AM
Suikoden II thread turns into big Arc the Lad II praise thread - I wonder if that's ever happened before...maybe I'll try to hijack the GameFAQs board.

Working Design completely killed the localization and that omake box that came with the trilogy made the games feel even more special and unprecedented. Really, everything about the PSX Arc games is unprecedented. Like, who made these games? Where are they now? G-Craft?? The games came out on PSN a while back and still don't get very much attention. It's nuts.

One of my favorite gaming memories is trying to finish the 50 floor dungeon in Arc I - it was the night before the first day of seventh grade, and by the time I got to the bottom, it ended up being like 2am haha...went to school a complete zombie.
A shame that Arc the Lads 4 and 5 were really not that good. >.>

I remember that dungeon, and more importantly, Choko. She destruction on wheels.

Amiibos really are the worst.
You shut up. I can quit Amiibos anytime I want!...oh wait today's Amiibo release date! To Amazon!...in 11 hours.
