I got into teacher's college in Ontario.  /(^^)/

Nice timing as this is the last year it will be a one year program.

Next year they're expanding it to two years and cutting the applicants in half, so it feels nice to sneak in under the wire.

Just watched the trailer.

Dug the art style and the music.

I can't even remember the last real SRPG that came out in the West. Tactics Ogre maybe?

This looks good. It seems like NISA is trying to branch out a bit, which is great news.

Are you talking about the Championship match?

Because I beat that on my second try, both times having been derpy enough to fail to remember you have to press Triangle in order to enable manual movement.

No I meant the championship match. What usually happened was they scored on me in the first half, I scored with Tidus, then Wakka would come out and I would get scored on and lose. Repeat ad nauseum. 

I never seem to be able to hang onto the ball. I finally beat it on Sunday after about 8 tries but I was growing increasingly frustrated by the end. I mean, I *know* I'll never get the 200 lightning dodge trophy, and I'm fine with that, but blitzball.....man that just pissed me off.

I actually don't mind the vocals. They suit the song just fine, overall.

The drums just sound really wimpy compared to the rest of the song and it's jarring.

Blitzball is the equivalent of having gas soaked shards of glass shoved up your anus then lit on fire.

What pisses me off is you simply cannot win. The game sets you up to fail.

This is my sixth time playing through FFX. I've already played the blitzball game four times today. It is physically impossible to win.

I cannot keep control of the ball. I never steal from the opposing team in tackles yet they always steal from me. 100% of the time.

I even went through the tutorial again today to see if I was doing anything wrong.

Nope. The game just fucks you over.

I fucking hate blitzball.

Why not? Plenty of psp games have worked well on PS3.

How bad is it and how often is it occuring?

I wouldn't call DDS or even Devil Summoner casual at all.

Those plus Strange Journey and Devil Survivor remind me of late 90s Square Enix where they were experimenting and churning gem after gem.

The parallels between Squeenix's and Atlus' progression in gaming are actually pretty similar.

I'm really surprised they didn't go the route of an HD version for PS3 yet.

It really seems like a no-brainer, considering people in NA are clamouring for it.
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, Listen to his story again... on: March 29, 2014, 10:32:52 AM
Of course Sony did it. They got rid of bc to sell games on psn and hd editions.
And there is no way in hell sony will give us emulation when they can resell us games again and again.

Edit - back on topic:

If there was one song they SHOULD have changed, it was "Other World".

Every time I listen to that song, I think how great the production is - except for the tin can that is being substituted for a snare drum.

The snare sounds like tinny crap. It's weak and doesn't suit the song at all and it's bugged me for years.

The one thing they could have fixed and they didn't!

So far the only song I like better than the original is "Spira Unplugged". The guitar sounds more natural to me.

Finally got ahold of an English copy today.
Very happy to play through this again as I think it's the last truly good FF.
(12 sucks!)
Never played X-2 before either.
As much as I detest Sony dropping bc to sell us our old games again, the hd versions really are handy for travelling when you can take two or three games on one disc.

So the new Captain America is out here and I went to see it tonight.

It is an excellent, excellent movie.

More of a spy thriller/action movie than a superhero movie.

Well paced and lots of action, but not ridiculous superhero action.

Well worth your time if you even remotely like thrillers/dramas.

No competent company is going to abandon its strongest market to go after a niche market that it already has anyway.

The problem is that, like all companies, they're abandoning their niche market in favour of the more popular one for easy money.

And the hidden doors/impossible to find NPCs/side quest with bad instructions in SJ /didn't/ bother you?

Nah, because I could at least find my bloody way around in SJ.

True, but that's the thing. The drop in quality from Strange Journey (which is really SMT IV) to SMT "IV" is pretty startling. The plot/mystery of the black knight was interesting, and I didn't mind the music changes even though I missed Meguro but the art design was FTP game levels of terribleness and the overworld map just killed the game for me. It was a chore to play because I couldn't find where the hell I was supposed to go.
