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.

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.

^ The show had some of the best adventures, and some of the most poignant television I've ever seen.  While I think, overall, Simpsons (in its first maybe 12 seasons) was stronger, comedy-wise --- I think Futurama was the much better adventure able to evoke way more imagination and feeling.

Yeah, Futurama had great adventures and was great at getting you in the feels when it wanted to. Sadly I didn't get to season 4, so while I got to rewatch the Luck of the Fryrish, I did not watch Jurassic Bark. I'll finish the original run of the series up sometime after I finish Tales of Xillia 2. And then I will come here to cry my heart out with manly tears that exist solely because I got something in my eye.

So I have to ask, is anyone grinding out max SP from every monster they encounter? Because I started the game last, discovered I got SP from killing set numbers of enemies and am now in the first zone completely destroying an ecosystem (the final number is freaking giant).

Played the beta last night, and I discovered/remembered that I am horrible at this sort of game. I died twice while playing the game. First time was against a bunch of gangsters and the second time was a OHKO from some random monster outside of town. Game ran perfectly fine on my computer.

Been watching Futurama recently in order to pass time while I wait for Tales of Xillia 2 to get here. I'm surprised as to how much of the show I still remember. Just finished up the episode about Fry's nephew last night. Great episode that always gets me right in the feels.

God damn it Amazon, you have failed me this time by not giving me release day shipping. x_x

Side note, I saw a comment on the Gamefaqs board for the game that mentioned that apparently the game synopsis journal is dripping with Ludger's personality if you want to check that out.

I feel like I've done nothing in a while, mostly because I've been focusing exclusively on my backlog stuff, including manga, LN and animu stuff. Anyway, I finally cleared True Dynasty Warriors Gundam in DWG: Reborn, which had a total bs artificial difficulty spike. I had to cheese it with a max level Heero in a GM, which is sort of anticlimatic. Oh well, whatever. I have a chance to platinum the game, but I don't know anymore. It's not worth it just grinding kills, though I feel bad for not trying out some good suits like the Kshatriya. Also the upgrade system in this game.... I still don't understand it and I have 90+ hours in it. Whoever made it up deserves a colony dropped on him. It is actually worse than in DWG 3. Time to get back to playing Rorona plus.
O.o I remember the upgrade system to be fairly simple. The first plan you select gets stat boosts to any stats it shares with the second suit you select, if the second suit has been upgraded before then the first suit gets extra bonuses to every stat for every upgrade to the second suit. The component upgrades change properties of attacks such as making the beams longer, wider, etc. You can check which attacks each component effects in game on the plans screen. You can transfer components to plans when upgrading the plans. I believe the most efficient way to do that is to have a base plan with stats you like, transfer three upgrades at level one to it, transfer any additional upgrades to it at level one, then merge two plans with all their components at level two to get a plan with level three components, and then merge that with the plan with stats you like.

So Del Toro and Kojima are both on this.....I am intrigued and confused by this. I think I am probably going to have to try this out despite not having played a Silent Hill game before.
415  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: August 14, 2014, 06:51:25 AM
I think i saw a glimpse of female Hawke in this new trailer. Still waiting to hear about the Warden though.

I'm currently contemplating if i'll play this on PC or PS3
It has been confirmed that Lady Hawke was in the trailer along side a Warden who was not THE Warden (although there is some speculation that the Warden in the scene might have had the Warden Commander in it since the Warden is dead in the default DAO continuity).

Our friends at Microsoft have always seen huge potential in Tomb Raider and have believed in our vision since our first unveil with them on their stage at E3 2011. We know they will get behind this game more than any support we have had from them in the past...

The first half: I almost feel just fessing up to an obvious truth would have about 1,000% less bullshit than this.
The second half: That just sounds stupid

Translation: Microsoft is willing to throw money at us because they recognize that we have brand name recognition. We know that we can ride them for free money and then get the money from a wider release when we release the extended edition in six months.

Playing Soul Hackers now. I like the world that the game has built, although I don't get the point of Paradigm X at the moment. Maybe I can don something important there later.

You know what other numbers don't lie? The amount of money his movies make. Kind of sickens me that he's figured out if you make a movie out of a recognizable franchise/brand/name, it won't matter how good or bad it is, people will still go out and see it just out of curiosity.
It isn't the recognizable name that gets his movies the amount of money they get because there are other movies out there with recognizable franchises which don't get as high grossing. It certainly isn't his story telling, and it isn't the action because he managed to make giant robots fighting boring in Transformers 1 (only Transformers movie I have seen). I'd say his formula for success is explosion porn combined with 80s nostalgia. Bright side in all this, latest Transformers seems to have gotten half as much as 2? So maybe people are getting bored of him a little?

So I played Code of Princess yesterday....I...why did I buy this when it came out? It has been on my backlog since it initially came out, but I have been putting it off because it wasn't a high priority. Oddly enough I somehow completely missed that the main character was in a thong and....I don't know what to call that? A breast clasp? I wish I had noticed that as I probably would have not picked it up had I noticed it. Stupid picking up games on a whim...

Anyways game was not that interesting. Found the controls annoying, gameplay not that interesting, characters were pretty flat with single note characters being the most developed, and storyline was meh. Only good thing about the game? Main storyline was short. Probably spent less than five hours to complete that. So horrible investment in terms of gameplay/price since I have no interest in the grindy post game.

Now it is time to figure out what other game from my backlog I want to polish off while I wait on Xillia 2.

And then there are Manga like Barrage, that get cancelled before they really go anywhere.

Yes, I'm still mad about that.
Eh, I found Barrage to not be very interesting. I preferred Stealth Symphony in terms of short lived series.

Naruto was actually descent at the beginning.

I think the point where it started its downfall was the Naruto VS Sasuke fight at the waterfall.

Wasn't that Aeolus's point?  Though I still think early Bleach was better than early Naruto.  I honestly felt Bleach was quite good up until around the end of the first Soul Society arc, after which I completely lost interest.  Hmm, looking it up that's only like a sixth of what's out there...man I have completely lost touch with that series.
Yeah those points are when Naruto and Bleach started to fall apart. Honestly, I think oddly for exactly opposite reasons. Naruto's greatest strength was that it had a well set up cast with the 9 characters from Naruto's class plus the three from the Neji team. Naruto was at its best when it was handling its side cast. Problem is that after the time skip it basically become the Naruto solo show. Other characters still got screen time, but it just wasn't the same anymore.

Bleach on the other hand refuses to let characters go so the cast is ridiculously large (does not help that I have heard Kubo just designs new characters whenever he gets writer's block) and it becomes impossible to care about them....plus the plot tends to repeat with the characters who should have a central focus (Orihime and Chad) being completely worthless all the time, Ichigo training to learn a new technique in the middle of a war right before fighting the big bad), and...yeah.
