Well that settles it. Time to start saving up for a 3DS. Current library is pretty boss; future library is too good to ignore.

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.

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.

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.

ME3 DLC half-off and Kingdoms of Amalur for $5.  Welp.  They got me.

If I'm in the vicinity of Charlottesville, VA then my sandwich shop of choice is Little John's.  Two locations, open 24 hours, and the prices are pretty good.  I don't even want to think of how many times I was studying in the library until 2AM+, then hustled over to LJ's for a Wild Turkey combo.  Freshman 15? Try Freshman 25.

I like a good pulled pork sandwich on a kaiser roll with pepperjack cheese, light slaw and a pickle, but I'm strange like that.

New character in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is.... Ken and Koromaru, fighting as a duo.  Pretty cool.  I think this is a good compromise.  P4U seems like a worthy sequel/expansion.

corned beef and pastrami plz
Fixed.

I'm back from my vacation, so if anyone is interested in what I have for sale then just send a PM.  I'll be putting up a few more things later this week. 
57  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: May 30, 2014, 06:39:54 PM
I had roughly 18 hours of plane rides and 16 hours of train rides in my trip to Europe, and I brought Persona 2 and TWEWY, intending to give both of them second chances. 

...I ended up putting almost all of my game time into Persona 3: Portable. I've now beaten that game three times in two years.

I'm going to ask to hold off any purchases until June, since I'll be out of the country and with uncertain net access.  If you are interested, go ahead and send a message, but I probably won't respond until after I get back from my trip overseas.

Yet another legend on the PSN.  It's awesome to be able to play Nocturne and DDS since I missed out before.  Well, I managed to find a hard copy of Nocturne, but DDS is damn near impossible to find nowadays.
DDS is super-easy to find now.  Atlus released a bunch more copies in late 2012 or early 2013 (possibly old stored copies, possibly a new printing), so it's typically available for $20 or less on Amazon.  I bought both games last year for $18 each, and I feel a little silly now for doing so. 

Well, not really.  I played DDS for the first time earlier this month and it was excellent.  Going to hit up DDS2 soonish, hopefully.

Bytor, you can get Tales of Eternia on PSP from Europe for like 30 dollars. Tales of Eternia = Tales of Destiny 2
True story: when I visited the UK three years ago I picked up Tales of Eternia, Breath of Fire III, and a "Mega Drive" Collection on PSP.  PSPs are region-free.  Good times.
