The obvious solution is to get rid of your credit cards.

Unanticipated medical bills say this is not an option.

I have one credit card I've had for a very long time. I never use it to buy anything. That's what real money is for. It is simply there for emergencies and unforeseen expenses. Unfortunately, I have ongoing health issues which have forced me to use it.

In essence: Credit card companies + Health insurance companies = You will lose.

p.s. why is Darksiders being mentioned? Didn't that come out a few months ago? Heck, I think that game looks pretty cool, but it'll be a bargain purchase in 6 months.

The demo went live at the same time, they're the only 2 PS3 demos this week actually.

Wow. I though DS came out for both systems at the same time. Guess I wasn't paying close enough attention.

The new trailers are just unbelievable. How the hell can the game look so good? I can't believe what I'm seeing.
Seriously. This looks like the stuff we were actually hoping for when this generation started. The definition of epic. Here's hoping that the game plays as well as it looks.

GOW3 DEMO ON PSN BITCHES!!!!!
Yes! I'll DL it tonight.
RPGs can suck it when this comes out.

Gen, the key differences between your post and Primes is that he is referring to the end of the game. NEVER talk about the end in any capacity unless it is spoiler coded. Hell, just telling me that the end sucks is a spoiler. Not cool.

This game warrants that I wait for a multitude of reviews before even giving it a second glance. It is utterly assinine to release this when they are, and makes me think they have little confidence in it.
The plethora of difficulty settings is appealing. Not too many rpgs even give you a choice.
The battle system sounds a bit complicated, and I have zero interest in outfitting my characters.
I am VERY concerned about the lack of quality dungeons. This is not a minor issue, considering the amount of time spent in them.
I like the whole steampunk motif, but it does look an awfol lot like a Wrpg now. lol.
This a total wait and see for me. Probably a bargain buy a year from now.
2211  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What feature in one/few RPGs should they all have? on: February 23, 2010, 03:16:38 PM
Yeah, Prime, if you could NOT spoil a game that just came out a month ago?
That would be great.

Dragon Age - Finished up the Orzammar scenario and am now doing misc. things before I go back to Arl Eoman and call the landsmeet. I imagine I am nearing the end.
Code:
I went after Flemeth for Morrigan and killed her the second time I fought her. I was totally unprepared for a dragon battle the first time. My approval rating with Morrigan is pretty high and I'd like to see if I can "seal the deal". Do I just shower her with more gifts, or is there a better way?
I really dig Ohgren. He kicks ass in battle and is actually kinda funny.

I totally dug the Gambits in FF12. I did spend a lot of time setting them up, but I felt like that was all part of the strategy. It's basically the same in Dragon Age with the tactics. I spend a lot of time setting them up, but it's oddly rewarding.
All rpgs should have auto-level up on the characters you don't use. heaven forbid the game forces you to use a character in the last level that you haven't touched since the beginning of the game.
Better yet, all games should have a Suikoden style exp system.
2214  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What version of FF XIII to get? on: February 18, 2010, 03:55:10 PM
I don't care, either way it'll be a big hit in the awesome department.
And THAT is what counts! I want me some Awesome.
2215  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Top Ten Final Fantasy Favorite Order? on: February 17, 2010, 11:44:48 AM
I've enjoyed every FF game I've played,so this is tough:
I have NOT played: 2,3,5,11

7. FFI - I remember playing through this kind of as a team with my brothers. It was a bitch and a half, but being one of the first rpgs we'd played we trudged on through.

6. FFVIII - I made it to disk 3 and then gave up after getting my ass kicked over and over again. Too much reliance on GFs and a complete lack of understanding in regards to the battle system ruined it. Loved the setting, though. I actually liked Rinoa, too.

5. FFIX - I actually liked this game quite a bit at the time. I just don't remember much about it. I hated the hermaphroditic chef, and the music was blah.

4. FFXII - I liked this way more than I expected to. The overall story was lost on me, but most of the characters we're cool. Loved Rabanastre. The music was just OK

3. FFVI - This rocked my world when it came out. The graphics, the music, the "dark" storyline. The only thing I didn't like was the espers taking away some of the individuality of the characters. They still had defined roles,though, so that's a pretty minor weakness.

2. FFX - I liked how the story was told. I liked Tidus' evolution from whiner to hero. The battle system didn't rot my brain with complexity. It was fast and fun. Add in incredible graphics and some pretty good tunes and this is one solid game

1. FFIV - I am unapolegtically nostalgic about this game. One of my favorite soundtracks of all time for ANY game. I WISH modern rpgs(or any game) would have soundtracks this good.  I loved the mix of tech with fantasy. Cecil and Kain are just too cool.

Reading the soundtrack review of FFXIII excites me. Music is HUGELY important to me in a game, and it seems to have gone by the wayside. Too much incidental and environmental stuff going on nowadays. Not enough emphasis on making something that sounds great. We'll see.

wow
*facepalm*
I would change my post, but I think my idiocy is kinda funny.
2217  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Anyone looking forward to Heavy Rain? on: February 13, 2010, 10:57:04 AM
Excellent reviews across the board. 9/10 on both IGN and eurogamer. I was expecting mixed reviews but they've all been very good so far.

I was expecting mixed reviews as well. This might push me over the edge into buying it. I certainly don't want to pass up on an excellent, innovative game like this despite my "this games looks incredibly boring from trailers" vibe I had going on.
My thoughts exactly. I haven't really bene paying much attention to this game, as it initially looked kinda boring. If it really is great then I will have to play it some time or another. Either way, this is NOT a full price purchase. Too many other good games coming out.

2218  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: flOw is currently free on the PS Store. on: February 13, 2010, 10:55:08 AM
Often times these deals are only for Gold members. Is this the case here as well? I'll check it out later, but I only have a Silver membership.
2219  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Game Journal XX - Sharpened Pencil Midnight Bathouse on: February 12, 2010, 11:17:14 AM
Dragon Age - Still in Orzammar.
Code:
Did the Proving battles, the Dust Town stuff, and am now about to go after Branka in the Deep Road.
This is really kinda dragging right now. The whole Dwarf scenario is boring to me.
After 45+ hours I am ready to be done with this game. It's good, but it is distinctly lacking in "Awesome"
March should bring the Awesome.


2220  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: God of war III on: February 12, 2010, 10:57:08 AM
God Damn, this game looks so friggin EPIC. This really is the game I want more than anything else right now. Enough with these slow ass rpgs. I need some carnage.


Can you tell I've had enough of Dragon Age? It's an alright game, but terribly SLOW at times.
