This import shit is freaking confusing. I have played the first one and Awakening on PS3 and I'm about to start #2 on PS3, but I planned on buying DAI on PS4 since I have one. Should I not do that?
Not sure how it is confusing. Dragon Age Keep means you can now import the world state you want onto any system that DAI is on as long as you can get an internet connection to the system long enough to download the world state. So absolutely no problem with switching systems.

Note: You will have to build your world state on the Keep site, but you would have to do that even if staying on the PS3 as DAI will not support save imports (my guess is that there are variables they want from DAO that were lost in DA2....plus buggy DA2 imports at launch).

*sigh* Over the weekend got myself psyched up for DAI for some reason, and then I remembered there are still three months left. :(

Man, I hope so.  The way I see it, I'll be playing Inquisition on the PS3, and any future Dragon Age games (in, say, 2016 or beyond) I'll play on PS4.  Hell, if they eventually make a PS4-only Ultimate Edition then I'd probably buy that.  When I have a PS4.  2+ years from now. 

And this Keep stuff is intriguing.  If I can really customize EVERY possible decision in Dragon Age Origins, Awakening, and DA2, then I'll be happy as a clam.  If they get to the majority of the branches in those three games, then I'll probably be okay.  If it's only 10-12 major plot points over all three of those, or they totally ignore Awakening, or they don't let me visually customize my own Warden and Hawke... then we have a problem. 
You will not be able to customize EVERY decision. You'll only be able to customize decisions that are imported into DAI. However since you will be going into parts of Fereldan and having a companion from DA2, there should be a good number of decisions that get imported. As for Awakening, I believe they have mentioned that you'll finally be able to properly import a customized Ultimate Sacrifice with an Orlesian Warden Commander for Awakening, so it is not being completely ignored. As for visually customizing your previous characters....I highly doubt that will be included, but that wouldn't included in importing from DA2->DAI anyways since at least for the Warden there was no visual data transferred to DA2.

Content should be the same, just difference in graphics.
79  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Harvest Drama: Story of Trademarks on: June 20, 2014, 06:59:35 AM
This is a very weird situation where the Harvest Moon trademark is being used to basically accomplish the exact opposite purpose of Trademarks. Frankly, I think Marvelous has a good case to prevent Natsume from using the Harvest Moon title in this situation. I mean the facts are weird, but showing likelihood of confusion given the current circumstances is easy, so I think they should be able to do something.

I started Playing Steambot Chronicles again last week up to yesterday. It's official...this game is the best game ever. I will never stop playing this game.

Fear Vanilla, Boss of the Killer Elephants, the Son

of a fisherman
...pimpin...and a real playa.

I did not make this up.

I will record gameplay

and you will love

this game too.

I have played Steambot Chronicles, and while I remember it being fun, I think calling it best game ever is more than a bit of an exaggeration.

Would it have killed them to call them something other than "human ranches," like say, "internment camps"?

They're... really more ranches than they are internment camps.

... ToS is kinda fucked upper than I remember.
Yeah, but they are more ExSphere Farms than Human Ranches.....although the former would completely spoil major plot points, so yeah.

I assumed the worst when I heard Atlus was going to start doing DLC, and I was rewarded for my pessimism.


Personas as DLC. >:(

Meh? It isn't like that is anything essential.
82  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Atelier Series on: June 18, 2014, 07:11:22 AM


And holy moses, characters other than the MCs in the intro?!  We're breaking ground here.  It also looks like an acid trip (I sound mean, but I'm excited as hell, I've loved the last two opening themes)

Hidari's designs are seriously my favourite thing for this series right now
Isn't his hair grayer than it used to be? Might just be my imagination, I guess.
83  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Capcom declared themselves 'up for purchase' on: June 17, 2014, 06:52:52 AM
I have ten dollars, I think I could afford it. Now then time to figure out what crossovers to have the Capcom characters fight...
84  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: "X" by Monolith (now named Xenoblade Chronicles X) on: June 15, 2014, 08:13:44 AM
I will say one thing, for all the xeno talk, this game bears no resemblance to xenosaga for me. I mean, I played xenogears and all 3 xenosagas, and this has a very different feel compared to them. I think that's a benefit though, given the bad rep xenosaga tends to get.

IIRC, besides the "Xeno" part of the name, certain staff members, and other "things" aside (like use of mechs), it isn't supposed to be similar to the old Xeno- titles (iirc, they really can't be since the "series" has had different publishers over the years; jumping from Square, Namco, and now Nintendo).

I think it's kinda like a Megaman > Mighty Number 9 scenario.  Very similar, but it's "not" because of who owns what.

I could also be way off, I don't really talk about gaming politics, legal stuffs, or buyouts

Well I would think they can probably reuse anything they want from Saga since that was developed by Monolith Studios (although I guess it depends heavily on several legal documents that I have 0 way of accessing or probably even reading) and Namco has sold their entire share in Monolith to Nintendo. The fact that they actually got away with what they did in Saga will always amaze me though. I mean Monolith was founded by the people who made Gears leaving Square to form their own company. You would think that Square would be a little litigious over them making so many freaking call backs/blatant ripping of asset designs. Oh well, time to look to the future. A future that apparently has Zohars, at least in computer files!

I'm actually surprised the Zohar didn't show up anywhere in Xenoblade.

I think the Monado was inspired by it.
I don't see it. One is representation of Jesus that allows humans to interface with 5th dimensional beings and also creates lovecraftian horrors. The other is a representation of a person's will to defy fate (or something like that, I forgot the dialogue from the ending). Other than being McGuffins, I don't see much similarity between them. I am however now wondering if X is going to see a return of naming stuff after stuff from Gnosticism.

.....No one but me cares about a complete set of the Persona Major Arcana Cards? Fine I'll just enjoy these cards by myself. Harumph. :p
86  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: June 15, 2014, 07:51:52 AM
Just got Zelos in Tales of Symphonia. So far I am doing pretty good on this run. Also, I am really enjoying replaying Tales of Symphonia. Certainly one of my favorites in the series, and easily the one I have put the most hours in.
87  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: June 15, 2014, 07:46:22 AM
I'd guess one of those four "resistance" characters from Twilight Princess. You know, the ones who help you get into the final few dungeons and then storm Hyrule Castle along with you. For that matter, maybe Zant.

.....No I do not know. The only characters I remember from Twilight Princess are Midna and the creepy looking kids that I thought were demon spawn.
88  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: "X" by Monolith (now named Xenoblade Chronicles X) on: June 14, 2014, 07:24:07 AM
I hope they're all still super-British. Nice change of pace from the same voice actors again and again, honestly.
I doubt they will. Since I am assuming NoA will handle the English localization this time rather than letting NoE do it and then take it several months later.
89  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: June 14, 2014, 07:20:39 AM
So now that the folks at Nintendo have basically said that they've put characters you'd never think would make a playable appearance in. I must now ask, who are your top ten picks for the final game (not including the characters already confirmed)?

My money's on Sahasrahla, Agahnim, Darunia, Error, Ruto, Malon, Din, Nayru (we don't know that's her on the cover), Fierce Deity Link, and Saria.

My personal picks would be:
Fierce Diety Link
All six sages from OoT(don't remember all their names)
Skull Kid

In case you couldn't tell N64 is my favorite Zelda era. Don't know how likely all of these are, but I am really hoping for the Fire Sage from OoT. Would be freaking awesome.
90  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: June 13, 2014, 06:33:49 AM

Obtain a super hookshot to take down Argorok!

Bring its tail down???  No...no no no, stop thinking so small. 

@Aeo yeah I thought it was Nayru... which I gues would have to open up for the other sister goddess' too.  Damn shame this isn't canon at all, I like the idea of a Zelda title where anyone and everyone can take down legions of enemies. :P
Forget the open world Zelda, this is going to be the best Zelda game ever. :D

Also, I noticed that Link was equipped with the mirror shield in the fight following the cut scene, so I am now working under the assumptions that:
1. Characters will have multiple weapons
2. Link's is either shield or sword and shield
