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Dude's probably just an outdated figurehead like the British Royal Family.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.

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.
84  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: August 20, 2014, 06:46:14 AM
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.
88  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.
