I've been playing Vesperia for the first time the past few weeks.  I was originally planning on playing it with a group, but we could never get the group together so I decided **** it.  I'll probably do the same for Graces F and Xillia over the next year or two.  Vesperia's fun.  The relationship between Yuri and Flynn *kind of* reminds me of Ramza and Delita, and the basic nuts and bolts of the combat and customization are very nice indeed.  The story hurtles along at a wacky pace, but so far I'm enjoying it.  Was surprised by two of the twists, not surprised by the other twenty-seven.

I don't own a 3DS, but the M&L games were all entertaining.  Hard to pick a favorite between Superstar Saga and Bowser's Inside Story, though.

I don't think I can trust anyone in Vesperia.  Pretty much every single character except for Repede has either performed a surprising turn, acted in a surprising manner, or has had backstory revealed as such to add a layer to the character.  Every time I say "that character will totally die or turn evil" it happens, but maybe not in the way I expected.  And then someone I *didn't* expect to die or turn evil did so.  Also: combat is fun, and I have zero problems grinding for materials, skills, and Altered Artes.

Playing Tales of Vesperia.  I have said "my goodness, that escalated quickly" at least three times in the past two hours.

Klyde - I get around the whole "what will I play next?" deal by organizing my backlog, planning which games to play months in advance, and then keeping an updated list in forum posts and my blog.  Sure, sometimes things come up and screw up my plans (hey there, Persona 4 second cycle!), but overall I'm really happy with it.  I haven't cut into my backlog this well in a decade. 

So with that said, earlier this weekend I finally beat Psychonauts.  **** the meat circus.  I couldn't get a group together for a Tales of Graces F run like I originally wanted to, because apparently I have less of a life than most of my friends.  Super.  Soon I'm going to re-pick-up a playthrough of Tales of Vesperia that I started in February.  Good times.

I would say that analogy holds for the first few generations, but keep in mind that in Gen V it all got flipped.  Both Emboar and Samurott are sweeper/tanks with poor speed but above-average offensive stats and decent HP.  Serperior is a sweeper/tank with poor attack, possessing good speed but low offensive stats.  Let's just say that Gen V tried to turn starter stereotypes on its head and coincidentally is also the worst group of starters in Pokemon history.

As for naming, while its not new, I did happen to notice that Awakening's localization of Narrave's name is, well Narrave instead of Shadow Dragon's localization choice of Nabral.
Isn't it Navarre and Nabarl? 

My roommate is going to New York this weekend for Wrestlemania, so I'm going to try and get a group together to no-life our way through Tales of Graces F.  Myself and one friend played the first few hours, but he and I want to find a third and fourth to play through some more once the party gets to a good size.  If we can't get four, it might just be the two of us rolling Abel and ____.  (when we last left off it was just Asbel and Cheria.)

Still rolling through Psychonauts, navigating through Neon Pamplona.  I'm not enjoying this stage as much as Napoleon or the Phantom, but it's still interesting.  I think I must be past the halfway point.

Most of the present company is excluded, but when I went onto several forums essentially saying "hey I really liked Persona 3 and 4; what other SMT games are worth trying?" I got laughed out of the room.  It made me less inclined to try Nocturne or Innocent Sin (the ones I was looking at hardest) and I ended up just doing a New Game+ of Persona 4 instead.  And I promise I'm not a "waifu" kind of person.  
475  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: April 03, 2013, 07:52:53 PM
I find the notion that SMT fans "welcome newcomers" kind of hilarious.  They're as elitist as it gets.

Persona 4 NG+ - I maxed all of the Social Links in late November except for the three story links, and then completed those three not long after.  Currently doing some grinding in the December dungeon for Reaper weapons. 

Psychonauts - I finally, after taking a month-long break, beat the Milkman Conspiracy.  That was one crazy boss.  Now to see what this insane asylum is all about....

EDIT: made a mistake.  I don't have all the P4 S.Links finished.  I thought I had, so I was confused when Margaret wasn't giving me any special prizes.  Turns out Judgement is still only Rank 8. 
477  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: March 27, 2013, 05:38:55 PM
hell, I am so caught up with SMT I am going to play P4:Arena the moment I finish innocent sin and I can't stand fighting games.....
Don't worry about P4: Arena.  If you just want to play Story Mode, the difficulty is low enough that you can beat every enemy by using the auto-combo.  Mashing the square button doles out an automatic light-hard-special or light-hard-super combo, depending on if you have enough SP to use the super or not.  Play the tutorial, get used to running/jumping/dashing, and then rely on that auto.  Good to go. 

And honestly, if it weren't for all this milking and intense promotion, I never would have gotten into Persona games.  Now I own multiple versions of them and have played through 3 and 4 twice each.  Gonna try out Nocturne or Innocent Sin in a few weeks once I get un-burned-out.

I was so glad when I played through DW I through III on my GBC a few years ago.  I had only finished III before, but playing them all back to back was really fulfilling, if frustrating at times. 

So... I'm still playing my NG+ of Persona 4.  With a little Persona 4 Arena online on the side.  It's been a Persona kind of year.

I'd be careful about those comics, Taelus.  They can be a little spoiler-y or at least too-much-foreshadowing-y when it comes to certain parts of the plot.  They're funny, but I'd recommend you finish the game first. 

Also, the comics stop right after the 3rd big dungeon in the game.  It's too bad.

Fantastic news. Hopefully they do DuckTales 2 next!
