Work has gotten really busy since I returned from vacation, so I haven't done a ton of gaming in June.  Probably going to have Retro Game Challenge or Dragon Age: Origins up here soon.

RPGFan posted two reviews last month:

Robert thought it had some problems
Stephen was a little more positive about it

Ugh. Played around 10-11 hours of Dragon Age: Origins today.  Did all of the Orzammar and Anvil of the Void quets, the Urn of Sacred Ashes quest (did most of the Redcliffe stuff earlier in the way), and a few side quests in Denerim and going between all of the city areas.  Already did the Mages Circle quests earlier this week.  Haven't touched the Brecilian Forest yet.  I love DA: Origins, but that was too much.  Hopefully I'll have the game finished in the next three or four days.

This whole deal with seeing how they handle DLC in SMT and PQ just make me think what they are going to do for P5.
Maybe.  I believe with 100% certainty that there will be an upgraded P5 (FES, Golden, etc.) less than two years after it lands.  If I was Atlus, I wouldn't have DLC in the original P5, but add DLC functionality to P5 Dash and go nuts with DLC there.  Or I could be totally wrong and they could have DLC included with P5 from the get-go.  Adachi's going to be day-one DLC for Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.  That's a little weird.

I keep meaning to start a big new game project (probably XenoBlade Chronicles), but I keep getting sidetracked.  First I replayed Sonny and Sonny 2.  Then I started re-beating parts of Retro Game Challenge.  Now I'm replaying Dragon Age: Origins.  I shouldn't be doing this.  I have a problem.

Here's a topic from a few weeks ago where someone asks basically the same PS3 questions.  Your tastes might be different from his/hers, of course, but there's a bit of PS3 exclusives talk in that topic. 

As for what's happening... well... I'll probably get promoted?  In about six months?  They're putting me on a six month project in another department, and my boss said if everything goes well they're probably hire me at a higher grade than I'm on now.  I'll go from inspecting sewer lines to... working at a sewage treatment plant.  Great.

Hold off on PQ, maybe a year later a Super-Deluxe-Velvet-Teddie Edition will be made with all of that hazz on it.

A "GOTY" re-release of a 3DS game? I've never seen such a thing before.
Well, it probably doesn't count, but we technically got the GOTY version of Bravely Default.  But it was a "dash" or "FES" version of Bravely Default and not one specifically included with DLC. 

And, well, I guess if it sells then they have every right to.  If it's more than $1 per Persona, though, I won't indulge in it at all.  But $2 for a pair of game-breakers after I've had my fun?  Could be a nice tip jar.

Well, I'm not interest in attempting to perform tarot readings.  I'll treat the cards like collectibles and keep them in one of my spare card cases. 

Anyhow, do we have any new word on SMT X FE at all?  I'm still curious whether it's going to draw Atlus characters from DDS, Persona, or other SMT umbrella games or just the core SMT series.  All I can find after a quick search is an E3 blurb saying "we're still working on it; please wait patiently."  Right.  Thanks.

.....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
You kidding? I'm buying Persona Q and Ultimax at launch to get the full set. I don't own a 3DS.

2016 is probably when I'll be thinking about moving into the new generation of consoles. Where DQ XI ends up will influence that decision.
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Code name S.T.E.A.M. for 3ds on: June 13, 2014, 09:35:44 AM
Well that settles it. Time to start saving up for a 3DS. Current library is pretty boss; future library is too good to ignore.
42  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy Explorers - 3DS on: June 11, 2014, 10:40:33 PM
well, if the combat is precise and intense, the BS surrounding the combat is convoluted and probably unnecessary, and the game looks gorgeous, then yes.  It is kinda like Monster Hunter.  I'll keep my eye on this. 
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Zelda for the Wii U on: June 10, 2014, 05:39:08 PM
Looks gorgeous.  Will totally get a Wii U once it has some games in 2015.

Beat the first two games in Retro Game Challenge (Cosmic Gate and Robot Ninja Haggle Man).  Totally dig the vibe of this game collection, and I can't wait to get to the RPG segment.  Unfortunately, before that happens I need to get through these racing game challenges, and it's a struggle.  Not a fan of these drift controls. 
45  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Aurian relents: PS3 games? on: June 08, 2014, 03:11:33 PM
If you're into open world stuff (which I totally understand if you aren't) the inFamous games are pretty fun.  GTA with electricity superpowers and a *very* binary karma system, and stories that are so-so for most of the way, but with spectacular finishes.  I like them a lot (more than Uncharted) but I get that they're not for everyone.  They're my second- and third-favorite open world games behind Red Dead Redemption (which you should also play if you haven't on the 360 already). 

Of the two Tales Of games on PS3, I think that Graces has more deliberate, strategic combat and Xillia has faster, more traditional Tales combat with fancier combos.  Both games are pretty good, and Xillia 2 is coming out in English-speaking territories later this year.  I didn't finish either game, but I liked Xillia a little more than Graces. 

Second the recommendation for Valkyria Chronicles.  That game rules.  I wish that it had PSN Trophy support, but there's a built-in achievement system that is basically the same. 

Now I have no idea if you like platformers or not, but if you do then you absolutely should play Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction and R&CF: A Crack in Time.  Crack is better than Tools (heh...), but they're both great jumpy-shooty-explody games.  The download-only interim game, R&CF: Quest for Booty, isn't very good.  But I love almost the whole series; R&C has basically been my Mega Man replacement since 2003. 

And hey, if you didn't play them on PS2, get the Ico / Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection.  Hell of a double feature.
