1  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Which "Tales of" games have you played more than once? on: Today at 12:49:44 AM
I own most of the main-series Tales games, although I have a bad habit of not beating a lot of them. I have beaten:

Destiny
Eternia
Symphonia
Abyss
Graces

And of those I have started additional games of Destiny, Eternia and Symphonia. Destiny, being one of my favorite games of all time, is a special case, because I've beaten it twice on PS1, and have also gotten to the endgame with the PS2 remake and director's cut version of that remake. In total, I own three copies of Tales of Destiny, and if it ever gets released as a PSOne Classic I will buy that too.

When I was young and outside the city in a suburb I wanted to be in the city because that's where everyone was.
I live in the city and everyone left for the suburbs.

I don't know how I'd even make new friends but I need at least one in the city.
It's just retarded that it takes over an hour to go see anyone.

The majority of my friends that still live in my area live in Philadelphia, while I live in the suburbs.  It's inconvenient having to travel to see my friends, but you couldn't pay me enough to move there.

Were you shooting with a traditional bow or a compound? A more modern compound bow might be better, if only so that you aren't straining as much if it takes you some time to aim.

For what it's worth, my wife shoots a 22lb traditional bow and while she has experienced back pain doing other activities, I've never heard her complain about it with archery.

Suikoden 1 Remake

I've always been of the opinion that if Suikoden got remade using Suikoden 2's art assets and battle system, it would be perfect.

So I was told by a girl that I look cute with facial hair.

Granted it was online and she saw a photo, and I have NO IDEA what she looks like, but I think this is legitimately the first time a woman has ever complimented my looks. I really am sort of lost about it...

I know that feel.

I still get confused when my wife compliments my looks, and we've been together almost ten years.

I love FFIX to death, but I concede that the battle system can be painfully, almost unbearably slow. I believe the story and environments make up for it though.

The entire souls series (and Bloodborne) feel janky and are downright un-fun to play.

I've never played a compelling Dragon Quest game. They all seem extremely generic and bland. While I'm at it, whenever I see Akira Toriyama-designed characters in a game, it's an almost immediate turn off. (I love DBZ to death though)

Final Fantasy VI was a good game but it'll never be anywhere near the best FF in the series. (Full disclosure, I didn't play this game all the way through until I was ~20 so I'm missing the nostalgia factor)

Lost Odyssey will always be my Final Fantasy XII (or maybe XIII because I don't know which of those I dislike more).

This one is more of a conspiracy theory than an opinion, but I think Drakengard 3's shittty gameplay and slowdown was intentional.

Nintendo IPs in general bore the crap out of me, with the notable exception of Kirby, who is adorable and will always be my favorite.

I'm jealous of anyone who's ever been able to eat without worrying about weight gain as it's always been an issue for me. I'm 245 lbs, it sucks, and I eat reasonably healthy too.  My main issue is that its tough to squeeze in exercise when you have a full time job and a house to maintain :(

I've taken to riding my bike during lunch breaks--at least it's been a fun activity so far.

To whomever was talking about wanting to try Rising Thunder in the most recent episode, I have two alpha keys if you want one.

@Marshmallow, are they all dudes?

Yes. The two orange ones are brothers too.

My cats turned a year old recently, so here are some pictures to celebrate.


Hippo (White/Orange) and Climber (All Orange) as kittens, October 2014.


Me with Hippo and Ezio (Grey/White)


All three!


Climber is the only one that will wear clothes.


Hippo sleeps like a weirdo.


He also claimed the printer as his sleeping spot.


And he is the most adorable.

Hey, I got mentioned in the most recent episode!

Good music choices in this episode by the way--I can't get enough of the Tactics battle music!

It does suck that I won't get to make Ramza a dark knight though.

Sadly, the grind to dark knight is ridiculous. You have to master two jobs, get four others to level 8, and kill (i.e. crystallize) 20 enemies. Even using spill over JP as much as possible, I'm still nowhere close and I'm about to fight Adrammelech. *sigh*

Oh I remember the grind. I beat the PSP version about six or so years ago (I think before OG FFT was available on the PSN) but I guess I'm just less patient with the slowdown. I still think Dark Knight is the perfect class for Ramza though.

I also have terrible pack luck.  I have a friend, however, who got Alexstrasza on his second pack, and has since gotten something like four other rad legendaries from packs after like four months of playing.  The only time I've gotten good legendaries from packs (Thalnos, and then Alexstrasza) he was either in the room with me or spectating me. It's insane.

I'm actually thinking about dropping the $50 on the pre-order packs for Grand Tournament so I can mess around with deckbuilding. It might be a decent time to rise up in the ladder if I can throw a good deck together.

I loved the Last Story, with the single exception of I hated playing it on the Wii. I'd probably re-buy it if it ever got a New 3DS rerelease for some reason.

I've started up a game of FF Tactics thanks to listening to the most recent retro encounter, but I have what seems like a less popular opinion about it, in that I really don't care for the PSP version.  I tried starting up a new game on the PSP version but the slowdown got old like three battles in and I switched to the original flavor PS1 version, which I definitely prefer.  It does suck that I won't get to make Ramza a dark knight though.
