I 99% disagree with Rob's point that developers should listen to fans. I'm a big fan of developer transparency and some level of community outreach, but if developers take more cues from fans then fans will feel MORE effacious and entitled (an effing disaster) and the analogy of the inmates running the asylum could apply.

Now, developers should 100% listen to sales (which they always do) and professional journalists and critics (which they sometimes do). I just think that fans should stay in the audience and not be a part of the creative process. Like, at all. Again, we don't want the inmates running he asylum.

I could wander around the world maps in Dragon Quest VIII and Skies of Arcadia FOREVER.  If Ni no Kuni is anything like those, well, I'm all about it.  Just one more week!

In their 2012 interviews the Persona guys have insisted they'll add something new and interesting to the Persona formula, but I'd be shocked if they broke the mold THAT much. They're def feeling some pressure to make just another Persona 3/4 because they were so popular. Whatever, I'm a borderline fanboy so I'll drink up the hype once they start showing it off in 2015 or whatever.

The reviews surrounding the game are surprisingly positive. I might end up picking this one up sooner than I originally intended.

My bad.  I posited it was a Tim Rogers article because I know he posted a big Skyward Sword thing around a year ago that sounded like what MGF described. 

And here's my final "list of games beaten in 2012" ->

1. Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
2. Radiant Historia
3. Mass Effect
4. Mass Effect 2
5. Breath of Death VII: The Beginning (Hard mode)
6. Grandia II
7. On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness - Episode 2
8. Mass Effect 3
9. Journey
10. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
11. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP
12. Star Ocean: Second Evolution
13. Red Dead Redemption
14. On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3
15. Persona 3 FES
16. Final Fantasy XII
17. DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue
18. Super Mario Galaxy
19. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
20. Fire Emblem: Fuuin no Tsurugi
21. Torchlight II
22. Rogue Galaxy
23. Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana
24. Okami
25. Civilization V: Gods & Kings
26. Valkyria Chronicles

Good year.  Didn't beat as many games as 2011 (total was 46-50 depending on how you feel about replays and fighting games), but I got a couple of big titles crossed off the ol' backlog.

Read an almost-interesting article on Zelda at Kotaku last night. It had some good points but devolved too much into the writer being an Old-Guard gamer who wanted Zelda to remain a hardcore series and damn the unwashed masses causing it to be dumbed down.
Was that one of Tim Rogers' big ramble-rants?  Because that guy is kind of a turd who lives for giving a few good points amidst a sea of nonsense.  He's the worst. 

Anyhow, I've been sick at home for a few days, which means a LOT of Persona 4.  I made it to the endboss of Void Quest, but then died hard (main was at level 39, everyone else level 36-38).  Level grinding now up to at least level 42.

OK, I like Persona 4 a lot.  It's Persona 3 with less bullshit (re: Tartarus) and heavier character arcs.  I am 100% okay with this.  I'm right in front of the boss of the Steamy Bathhouse dungeon, but I need to level grind a little bit for it since I kinda rushed through it all.

My team won earlier today and my dad's team is looking pretty good right now!  Footbrawl!

I originally planned to beat Valkyria Chronicles before 2013 happened, but alas 'twas not to be.  I'm on episode 14 out of 18 and company is coming over soon.  It'll be my first finished game of 2013. 
745  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: December 28, 2012, 08:40:05 AM
Just finished Chapter 10 of Valkyria Chronicles.  Awesome stuff.  I leveled up two classes up to Elite and now I can use flamethrowers!?  This game just gets better and better! 

I'm leaving for a wedding in a few hours, and I won't be back until Sunday night.  That gives me two days (including one work day) to finish this game before the new year.  That's gonna be lots of videogames.  I can do this.

Django Unchained is violent, absurd, full of racism, discomforting, and breathtakingly awesome.

Playing Valkyria Chronicles and Persona 4 (regular-ass Persona 4 on the PS2).  Loving both of them.  Gonna try and beat VC before the new year (on mission 7... not sure if I can....) and Persona 4 sometime in January.  Gonna be a nice few months of gaming. 

Pokemon White 2 is on hold until MAGFest in a few weeks.  Got a few online pals that want to trade-battle in person.  Still zipping through the game with Excadrill, Haxorus, a baby Deino and that's about it.  Love those first two.  Reuniclus was put on hold so Haxorus could rip through the last two dungeons.  Serperior got benched shortly after evolving.

C. Platformers..... PLATFORMERS ROCK!!! I am still loving Ratchet and Clank a Crack in Time
I'm glad you're enjoying Crack in Time.  I've already made my Ratchet & Clank love evident, so I'll just give you an internet high-five and go back to playing Pokeymans.

It's pretty good!  Bosses have interesting patterns and are modeled after their most recent movesets - Blanka uses all three types of Beast Rolls, electricity, and an electric roll, for example.  Each boss also has a super meter and super combo that can really **** you up if you aren't careful.  Using Blanka as an example again, he electrifies the entire floor (like his Ultra 2 in SF4 AE), then throws four watermelons, then Beast Rolls through the watermelons.  That's the kind of game this is.

Demolishing Pokemon White 2 with a team of Fraxure, Excadrill, and... that's the list.  Just got the 8th badge, now about to challenge Team I stopped using the starters after they evolved to their final forms.  I've been keeping Deino around with a permanent Exp. Share, but right now it isn't quite battle-ready.  Also have a Watchog and a Ducklett around as HM slaves. 

I'm trying to use Gen 5 pokemon exclusively so I can get a taste of what's new (sorry, Riolu that I used for the first Gym).  I want to round out my party out to four eventually, so I'm open to trying out some new pokes.  Recently caught a Mienfoo, also thinking about training up a Timburr or a Tynamo that I caught ages ago.  I could use some Fighting or Electric coverage.
