Only at 30 FPS though, all the other versions run at 60 FPS.

I finished Growlanser WoT at last, it was very good but I think I'd have liked it more if was about 10 hours shorter. I like the idea of a tactical/traditional RPG hybrid, but in practice the non-story battles were a waste of time, since I enabled auto-battle for almost all of them.

Yoshi's STD Chase - Nintendo went a bit too far to try to shed their kid-friendly image.

Shady College Encounter - A dating sim.

Sleazy Driving in the Sky - Latest entry in the Sora no Kiseki series outsourced to Idea Factory.

Inbred Hoedown Quest - A rhythm/RPG hybrid.

That's been my experience with it too, and by the time I did finally fight off an invader I was so over-leveled that it didn't feel like much of a triumph. I really liked the other online components though, it just wouldn't be the same without the messages and when it worked, co-op (connectivity was terrible on the PC version, I was invaded more than enough but co-op was mostly a lot of "summoning failed").

I read about this a few hours ago.  This is going to be the most successful Kickstarter to date.

At least for games (there are other projects that raised more) there's a long way for it to go to reach Torment's total of over $4m.

Shantae will make it, there's still two weeks left and it's only $45,000 short of the total needed. It might even make the first stretch goal.

I'll definitely still be getting it, but I don't like the sound of invasions happening even while you're hollow. I died so many times to O&S, and it became infuriating trying to get help there when the same couple of people would kill me repeatedly before I could even reach the summon signs.

Nice to know the driving is good, that's what made me quit 4.
The driving was ass and you had to drive everywhere...

I must be one of the few that really liked GTA IV's car handling, since I hear this complaint a lot. In most open world games the cars feel like toys, whereas GTA IV's actually had some weight to them, and each had a different feel rather than just slow and fast.

I thought you guys were all joking at first...

It's addicting, I know! It's been consuming me since I posted it...

For your own sake, I'd stop. Constant clicking is only going to accelerate the onset of RSI, and once it's there it never goes away.

Argh, my PSP suddenly developed a fault with the screen and now there's a luminous horizontal line going all the way across it. I knew I'd regret buying UMD versions of games rather than buying everything digitally. At least then I could've bought a Vita and kept my games, instead of having to buy another PSP just for a few unfinished ones. I really don't want to abandon 30 hours of Growlanser IV.

Ah, I'm not sure I like the sound of that either. It could take away some of the incentive to get through areas undetected if being damaged is something you can easily shake off.

I'm not really digging the Regen health ability.

Not a first for the series, that was in MGS3 dependent on your stamina. I haven't watched any videos, is it a lot faster then?
27  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Capcom's deep down on: September 10, 2013, 05:35:32 AM
I never understood the appeal of making random dungeons.  Worse is that it sounds like it's a selling point sometimes; to me it's just an excuse for linear or grid-like level design without any interesting assets.

It can work well in certain games, if they draw from a template which isn't completely randomised like Rogue Legacy. That has lots of designed rooms and it just mixes up which ones you see in a playthrough. In other games though, more often than not it's as you say with lots of bland featureless corridors that are no substitute for actual level design.

Provided that the collective Steam Community can get over its irrational hate towards JRPGs.

What irrational hate? Recettear sold 300000 copies, and that's an obscure indie RPG. The Ys series and Zeboyd's games did really well there too, better than they've done on handhelds and consoles.

Use the PSP's lovely audio/video out feature and play on the big screen! That is what I'll be doing... I've edged into damn near every topic about a PSP title on this forum to point out/exploit how freakin' awesome the PSP is for having those capabilities.

I wish I could use the TV out, but I don't have an HDTV and most SDTVs in Europe don't have component inputs, just SCART (which is great, no PSP cable though) and composite (awful). I've got the composite cable for the PSP but it looks incredibly bad, and the text in RPGs is unreadable.

I'm torn between which version to choose, I may end up getting both. I don't especially enjoy playing games on handhelds, but I'd like to import my original clear data, and even though I could use someone elses file to import into the PC version, it wouldn't be quite the same. I could buy the PC version of FC, but I'm not one for replaying games in quick succession, seeing as I only finished it for PSP a few months ago. That said, I really want Xseed to release more PC games, so buying them would send the right message.
