Wow, a lotta hate for the AC series

Deservedly so.

I played the first one, and it actually made me angry at how bad it was.

I've never gone back to the series. Just terrible, terrible games.

EO V

http://www.destructoid.com/atlus-announces-etrian-odyssey-v-and-nothing-else-284214.phtml

Just a teaser trailer.


EO Mystery Dungeon

Spike and Atlus are doing a mashup game. It basically looks like an overhead view EO game.

I don't know anyone else who owns the game. :/

Why your friendly neighbourhood Dicey of course!  I think a number of us here got it. (PS3 or Vita is the next question)

PS3.

Although I forgotten I actually *do* know someone who owns the game and is about the same level as me.

After this week (last week of practicum aka placement in a public school) I'll have more time to sink into it.

Golly, trying to compile the necessary games/data for backloggery is driving me batty.

I need to breathe and take this on in a reasonable "console or two" a day.

I started pretty early with mine. I'd be going mental if I tried to do it now.

And congrats Dincrest!

So I've been playing Dragon's Crown, and actually quite enjoying it.

I'm up to the part where I'm looking for the nine talismans and every quest has a "b" branching option.

I've kind of hit a brick wall. I feel like I'm massively underpowered while trying to do the branching quests and trying to do the ones by myself is impossible.

I'm level 18 and a wizard with companions around level 23/24.

And yes, I am trying to complete quests but I'm not sure where to go for some of them (like the owl bears).

Any tips or am I just in for a whole lot of grinding for the time being?

From my perspective, more tastes are catered to now than ever before when it comes to gaming. It's pretty great.

My turn based RPGs :(

Edit - To be fair, Stick of Truth was a really fun turn based RPG with a pretty good battle system but it seems more like a throwback than the norm.

Mixed feelings about the episode.

I liked the bittersweet ending but the "power of love' conquering the Cyber-Men just made me throw my hands up in the air with frustration.

It sucked in the Fifth Element, it sucked in the Matrix and it sucks in Doctor Who.

Just a heads up for Canadians - I happened to be in Future Shop today because I needed new headphones and spotted a copy of this for 9.97.

If you haven't grabbed it yet, it might be worth looking around for it.

I started reading her review and closed it as soon as it turned into a "Moffat is teh sexist!"

It's beyond a dead horse a this point.

I just don't understand how you can look at the camp crap of Tennant's run with things like Donna becoming a *massive* deus ex machina vs. the serious tone and more grounded (overall) feel of this series. I just do not get it.

It took them 9 years but they finally got Doctor Who right.

I like the monster movies - Hellraiser, Phantasm, Re-Animator, Evil Dead more than slasher flicks.

A good ghost story like Ring or Grudge goes over well too.

*NOW* are you guys happy?

Playing Jade Empire and I'm digging it.

Pretty standard Bioware stuff in some ways but the setting is cool and I like the combat.

It's just different enough that it doesn't feel like a rehash of stuff they've done before.

The script did have some good ideas.

The only part I can see real complaints about was the sister subplot, which I agree didn't really make sense.

It was at least interesting. The show feels completely different from the soap infused trash we got from RTD.

This feels more like the original show, and I think some people just can't get over it.

The amount of ridiculous hyperbole I've seen over this episode makes me think half the people don't even watch it.

Edit - I'm not specifically talking about anyone here, just so there's no misunderstanding.
