661  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Unsung Story: A Kickstarter by Yasumi Matsuno. on: January 15, 2014, 07:06:14 AM
I've backed it for the moment, but I am having some serious warning flags flash in the back of my head, so there is a good chance I might end up backing out before the end of the campaign. It is kind of hard to explain why it is triggering warning flags. The simplest explanation I can come up with is that it is giving me Sands of Destruction vibes. I mean yes Yasumi Matsuno directed Final Fantasy Tactics which has a great story....but he also did Final Fantasy XII which is the worst Final Fantasy imo. As far as I can tell there is no discussion of the writing staff, and that is making me worried.

As for total at the end of the Kickstarter, my gut is telling me 700k-800k.

So been playing Guided Fate Paradox and I hate wish 4. It is the first one without a break in the middle. So I go through ten floors straight to get to a fight where the goal is to keep an NPC alive. Unfortunately he is freaking weak. Also there is a freaking paralysis causing monster. So yeah, I am not looking forward to trudging through 10 floors for another chance at that. >.>

Oh hey forgot to post this earlier. Color pieces have been unlocked (after the goal for them was reduced).

Started playing Guided Fate Paradox. Game is meh so far. However I am interested to see where this story goes. I am disappointed in the solution to the first wish though because it brought up very real issues with the story of Cinderella.....and then just said nah I'm not touching that.
Haha I'm surprised that's all you can add after beating a game (then again, I say TOO MUCH after beating one...).
I found the controls were pretty 1:1; but I definitely had issues with the way the WiiMote could catch what direction you're trying to swipe at (especially an issue when trying to pull off a skyward strike or the bosses/enemies that requires cuts in a certain direction).
Well keep in mind I post here in morning during my time before I go to work, so I don't always have enough time to make long posts with all my thoughts. However controls really do suck in Skyward Sword. 50% of the time the strike I tried to make was not the one made. After a while I just gave up on the Deku Babas and just used the Beetle against them instead. Of course that took forever because of how small of a range you have for getting below the Deku Baba head. Swimming was one of the most miserable control schemes that I have ever seen. It was so incredibly awkward to try and get to certain areas while swimming (hence why the Water Dragon can choke on a fish for making me swim so freaking much because she was bored or something). Then during the final fight the controls were screwing me over because apparently if you have a shield equipped and z-target a foe you automatically bring up your shield or something resulting in you being unable to do a skyward/lightning strike. So in the end I had to unequip the shield so that I could actually perform the necessary attacks while keeping the final boss in view at all times.

I hate motion controls so much at this point.

Beat Skyward Sword a few days ago. I don't think I mentioned that yet. Overall thoughts are that the controls suck and the Water Dragon can choke on a fish.

Also beat Disgaea 4 last night. Whole game can be summed up as unnecessary. Didn't mind the addition of Sicily and the explanation for her worked fine (actually sort of called it chapter or so before it was revealed, missed some important details though, Artina's backstory helped). Also I am getting really sick and tired of the Disgaea/standard NISA battle system. The fights just drag on so long and I just don't care.

Not sure what game I'm going to play through next. Options I'm considering are Guided Fate Paradox, Persona 2, or maybe getting started on my 3DS backlog.

I was originally going to say Ar Tonelico with some tweaks, but then I saw Aeolus's post and was reminded that I love generational systems. So now I am changing my answer to an unholy hybrid of Ar Tonelico and Record of Agarest War 2 with the following tweaks (off the top of my head):
-You can pair up all characters for the next generation and not just the main character for each generation
-All characters can partake in dive style explorations of their psyches and not just main heroines, with melee characters learning new skills from the process
-Ecchi turned down to 5 or below from the 13 it is in Record of Agarest War 2
667  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Capcom: All games will be "social" in the future; monetization involved on: January 11, 2014, 07:55:55 AM
Yeah....I really don't care about Capcom games so how they decide to screw themselves over really doesn't affect me. However generally speaking I don't care about the communication aspect as long as it isn't some kind of required mechanic. The monetization though, depends one xctly what they meant. If they DLC then I don't see how that relates to social, but they are probably right. If they mean resetting cool down timers, I still don't see what that has to do with social, and the idea needs to be cooled.

I vented all my frustration towards Crapcom back when they were killing the Megaman franchise (and even my hidden reserves were tapped by that whole BoFVI fiasco). Right now I couldn't give a fuck if I tried.
God damn it, why did you have to remind me that BoFVI was a thing? I had blocked that from my memory.

Watched The Dark Knight last night. Heath Ledger's performance as the Joker was great for the type of Joker he was going for. Movie was alright. Still don't get the hype for the series. Also the whole choose one or the other sequence made absolutely no sense.

At least as I recall, Batman says he is going after Rachel, and I think Gordon says he is going after Harvey so that they can get both.....but then Batman finds Dent, and is not surprised? And Gordon ends up outside of where Rachel is? At first I was thinking that the Joker told them wrong and that what broke Dent was going to be the revelation that Batman was going to save Rachel over him, but that never happened. So did I mishear who Batman was going to go after? If not why did he say the wrong thing? If he said Dent but went after Rachel that would make sense to keep up appearances to the cops as he left, but I don't get why he would want to say Rachel and then go after Dent. Plus, how the hell did Gordon kknow Batman was going after the other one? I...?I just don't get this.

Also any attempt at calling this a realistic Batman flew at the window once they introduced cellphone sonar vision. Side note, the chase scene went on way too long.

So I've been playing the demo....and I really don't get why this game is so anticipated. Can anyone explain to me what is so amazing about this game? Because I have been meh about it since I first saw it and the demo has not convinced me otherwise.

Strange, I thought I posted here yesterday?

Monday's chapter of Bleach:
Mask de Masculine lives! He's going to die next week, but I don't care. He is awesome. He deserves a better fate than death by Renji as fodder.

Watched Batman Begins last night.....I really don't get why this movie is so well loved. It was alright, but that was about the extent of my feelings for it. >.>

...getting married mid-sword-fight,...
Oh come on that was freaking awesome. I wish I could get married in the middle of an epic sword fight during a maelstrom.

Been playing Skyward Sword. On the final boss fights.....and oh  wow do I ever hate the controls for this game. I got to the second stage of the second to last boss fight, and I looked at a guide to see what the fudge I am supposed to do. Guide said that I am supposed to match his sword strikes. I tried that.....and that ain't happening. Timing just does not work. Either I am too slow to notice his tells or I notice them and I completely miss him. I was going to give up, but I checked the message board and saw two alternate strategies for fighting this stage, so going to try those tonight. x_x

*shudders* This game is probably in my top ten worst games that I have ever played list. Mostly because I found the story's obsession with absolute pacifism while you have to go fight things to reach the point of ridiculousness.

Watched the Christmas special a few days ago and forgot to post my thoughts. I loved it. I loved just about every continuity call back. I found it a very nice way to wrap things up with Smith. Plus I loved how they handled the origins of the Silence Sect. I give it an A-.
675  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: January 05, 2014, 09:24:13 AM
I know vesperia is a 360 title and thus not a thread appropriate title so forgive me.
Tales of Vesperia is a PS3 title also! I have a copy of it in my living room!......now if only the translation patch would hurry the freak up. Oh well at least skits, story, and NPC dialogue have been verified. Just 2% for Misc., 8% for Menu, and unknown percent for the Bar of Magic till I can finally enjoy it in all its glory!
