I with most of you folks. This really looks fantastic. I don't get excited about much nowadays, but I'm all over this game.
2117  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The 3rd Birthday on: June 25, 2010, 05:00:27 PM
Parasite Eve 2 is basically Resident Evil +.
It has more weapons, more customization, more enemies, more skills, more environments, the like.
This sounds good on paper, but the problem with this is the "more enemies" part. Parasite Eve 2 uses the Resident Evil control scheme. In the earlier REs, enemies are easy to avoid and dodge, not so much in PE2, since they are faster and have a wider variety of attack types.  The best part is that the game is actually challenging, especially on the higher difficulty levels.

That said, I love PE2 despite its flaws, but I'm also a huge early-RE fan. This definitely doesn't look PE2-ish.  

As for why it's called The Third Birthday
Code:
The ending you get at the end of Parasite Eve isn't the "canon" ending.  You need to reach the top of the Chrysler
building to get it.  At the end of the Chrysler building, Aya's Mitochondrial powers weaken and go partially dormant from
lack  of use, only to reawaken in PE2.  That's why there are scenes in PE2 with Aya causing spontaneous combustion,
something only Eve could do in PE1.  You'll notice during the scene before the game turns to "Night" that Aya goes into
her "Liberation" form,  the final skill in first Parasite Eve and what would also be the equivalent of her being overtaken like
Melissa Pierce, but controlling herself rather than letting it control her.

Movie related, what I'm talking about is at 2:20

This one is better quality and doesn't glitch up like the above, but you have to wait until 9:00 or so to see it.

I'm assuming at the end of PE2 Aya's powers slowly go dormant again since she doesn't use them.
"The Third Birthday" means that they are going to be necessary for a third time.

Also, since someone asked yes, she is completely human.  It's her mtDNA that was altered.

Forgive me for taking this further than it needs to go, but that explanation still doesn't cover the "birthday" angle. Why couldn't they subtitle it something a bit more mature sounding, like what I said in my previous post. For a series that tends to play out on the darker side of things the name just sounds silly to me. Are they changing it for US release?
Granted, I don't even have a psp, so all this means nothing to me. I was just surprised that no had said anything about the stupid subtitle.
And No, Faded, the name would not affect my buying decision. If the game is good, I would buy it regardless.

So why is this called The 3rd Birthday? Name sounds kinda stupid to me.


Maaaaaaybe you should read the first post.

The Overdive system emerges as a means of opposition, but only one viable candidate exists Aya Brea. A gift as she awakens from a lost past on this, the occasion of her third birth.

This is my most anticipated game out of E3. I can't wait to see more game play.
Got me. Whats this third birth business? Is she not human? I really don't know much about these games outside of playing the first one for a couple hours.
Regardless, the name sounds stupid and takes away from what looks like a cool game. Only a Japanese developer would give a subtitle like that. a Western developer would call it "re-awakening" or something cool like that.

That Hades battle was pretty cool, though. Plus I love the Claws of Hades.
I am doing the whole Flame of Olympus business. Slightly annoyed by the musical game-like button pressing nonsense.

2121  Media / The Soundroom / Re: So... the site's podcast on: June 23, 2010, 09:10:03 AM
I listened to a portion of the first one, and intend to listen to the rest, but I had one gripe. Please take the time to mention who you are on the boards. I know some of you by your names, but not all of you. Like just in the first episode...Who is Rob? What is his name on the boards? It would make us feel like we know you guys better.

according to this, his "nickname" is PaleRobbie
each staff member has a profile like that and can be found with this thing
Wow. Never heard of this guy. Just started in May? So why is the new guy in charge of the podcast? Or is that why he was hired? I don't recall ever seeing a PaleRobbie on the boards. Odd.

2123  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What you like/hate in the opposite sex!! on: June 22, 2010, 12:06:53 PM
speaking of accents....
This here is a FINE example of what I like in the opposite sex:
http://www.facebook.com/#!/album.php?aid=99757&id=105528145968&ref=pb
A tad too skinny, but I think I could deal with that.

On the whole, I like dark-haired, curvy girls with or without glasses(but they are preferred). When I say curvy I don't mean skinny girls who think they have curves because they barely eat and their bones stick out. I've heard numerous guys refer to Jessica Alba as curvy. Um, NO. She's skinny  I mean a full -figured woman. Not out of shape or anything, but plenty to hold on to. A fine booty is a must. I guess you could say I like the Kim Kardashian(sp?) type body, but with someone else in it. I also prefer a girl without a tan. I like pale skin. Fake tans(or even real ones) totally turn me off.
Physical traits aside, I want someone I can talk to. After we see a movie, I want to discuss it, not just move right on to dinner without another word.
I'm big on nature, so a girl has to like to bike and hike(that sounded weird), and tolerate my gardening addiction.
Now some not so PC honesty. I like a woman who cooks and cleans, and a lot of those other old-fashioned things. I'm not a big fan of cooking, so she has to be able to bake some bread and make a kick ass dinner.
I'm a bit of a cleaning freak, so I can take care of that, but a girl who is a slob is a total turnoff.
If I see a woman wearing a sports jersey I run away as fast as I can. Women + sports = yick. I have no problem with her actually DOING sports. But if all she wants to do is watch the Cubs or the Bears, I'm am so outta there.
Finallly, no religion. pretty self-explanatory.

I've been married to a woman who embodies most of these traits for over 11 years now. She was a friend of a friend. The first time I met her I was playing Mario Kart with a buddy in my parents basement. She said she loved Mario Kart. Total love connection. Actually, it took several dates and a lot of talking, but we clicked.
I'm pretty sure there's a few other people around here with "success" stories, if you want to call it that. I'm not the only married one. I know Pat(Ramza) is married and has kids.



2124  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Bowsers Inside Story help on: June 21, 2010, 08:54:16 PM
my kid has been playing Bowser's Inside Story and is stuck at some boss called Junker. I checked Gamefaqs and other sources, but couldn't find anything helpful for him. Anyone who's played the game and can offer him any tips?  His characters are lvl 18/19. That's all I know.
Perhaps I should post this in Helper Monkey...
2125  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: June 21, 2010, 08:53:20 PM
Isn't your kid a little young for videogames?

I was beating Super Mario Bros 3 at five.
He's 9 years old. I was playing games way younger than that.

Wow, That was a fun read. Thanks!
2127  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: June 21, 2010, 01:54:21 PM
Playing God of War III. I just found the flame of Olympus and am now supposed to find Pandora or something. Then there's that freak Hermes bugging me. Can't wait to twist HIS head off.

Who would it be? They are so superior to real girls its ridiculous...

and no KOSMOS doesn't count as a girl you freaks


Wow. So I take it you've never been with a real girl? Or just have had a lot of issues with them?

Make fun of the topic, but I think it's fine to play along just for fun.
I'm with Ramza on the dark-haired girls.
I liked Sheena from Tales of Symphonia. Voiced by the great Jennifer Hale.
Then there's the ridiculous hotness of Naomi from MGS4, also voiced by Hale. I sense a theme here...
Like Dincrest, I also had a thing for Nei from PS2. Poor Nei.

Mass Effect 2  - finished the game last night. I had a great time with it, and totally can't wait for part 3.
I'd like to play it over as the female Shepard with a different specialty, but I've got other games to play. This one took me a little over 50 hours, compared to the originals 36. Better game, though. Much more fun to play, if a tad repetitive.
God of War 3 is next.
2130  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: June 04, 2010, 10:11:47 AM
Mess Effect 2 - So I got me some Miranda action. Scenes like that are so cheesy in vid games. I'm sure someone will get it right eventually(or just leave it alone), but for now they're just comedy.
I am now in what I believe to be the final area:
Code:
No one has died yet, and I'm actually surprised by that. I'm about to attack the collector base(saved right at the start), so I imagine that will change. I chose Tali as the specialist because I don't like her, and I figure the character in that position is the most likely to bite it.
Can't wait to see how this all turns out.
