Well, it's tough to judge based on space, because the bitrate a song's encoded at makes a big difference in size.  But my 8000 songs (many of which were recorded at low bitrates) take up a little less than 30 gig.  Try the demo - you'll see pretty quickly whether your library size is going to be a problem.

How the songs are turned into fighters is kind of like Monster Rancher and its CDs - no one knows the formula.  I know I didn't find anything consistent in the original version.

You know, I've yet to have many problems with mine crashing, but I have heard a lot of other people saying that.  What hardware do you have, Buddy?  And is it up-to-date on the firmware?  The one problem I had was when I bought Wolfenstein RPG - it just wouldn't get past the first splash screen.  I found some info online about doing a hard reboot, and that solved the problem immediately.  To do that, have it on and hold the "power" button down for a few seconds.  A slider will come up at the top of the screen saying "slide to power off."  After you turn it off, give it a few seconds and turn it back on.  Hopefully that helps.


RPG-wise, here's a list of everything I've played:
Dungeon Hunter - loved it.  Wrote a review for the site if you want more info.
Inotia demo - didn't like it enough to want to spend the money.
Inotia 2 - liked it enough to buy it, but got really annoyed by it later.  I wrote a review for the site if you want more info.
Zenonia - bought it, liked it, got myself kind of in a corner.  Gotta do a bunch of grinding before I'm going to be able to continue.
Dungeon Scroll - not RPG enough to count for the site, but it's fun if you like word games, and you do get stronger as you progress.
Wolfenstein RPG - it's not too RPG, but it's definitely interesting and unique.  If you haven't played it, I think it's worth the $2.
Song Summoner - your results will apparently vary greatly based on how many songs are on your iPod.  I thought it was pretty fun when they released it for the old iPod, but I have 8000 songs on my iPod Touch, and the loading time issues that creates completely destroyed the experience for me.

Finished off the Planet of the Apes series.  Planning to buy Zombieland next week when it comes out.

Wow - glad to see I wasn't the only one who was EXTREMELY underwhelmed by this thing.  My very very first impression was "oh man - starts at $500?  I just bought a 64 gig Touch a few months ago!"  But then I started taking a better look, and my mind changed pretty quickly.  Plus, I realized that its giant size means it's exactly the opposite of my nice, portable iPod.  And to get the disk space I need, I'd have to spend $700 for the NON-3G model, as opposed to the $400 I spent on my iPod.  And I figured that the 3G service would mean an extra charge - knowing it's connected to AT&T is just another nail in the coffin.

And yet, I know at least one Apple fanboy who I'm SURE will be buying one.  (It's no one on this site.)

Had to post this, even though it is totally old: Apple Introduces Revolutionary Laptop With No Keyboard.

Sweet - I've got DA:O on PS3, and was feeling kinda bummed that I wouldn't be able to get the free armor... that I probably won't even use. :)  Anyone know if it's good?

Spent a fair amount of time last weekend re-watching the Planet of the Apes series.  Can't remember right now if I got through 3 or 4.  Still got the TV series to go when I'm done, though. :D

(Have I mentioned that I have terrible taste?  At least I don't like the remake!)

Wow - that turned south really quick.  Gotta say, we're all offering our distinct opinions, we don't all agree on what we'd want to see in sci-fi, and my reading of Hidoshi's comments was that they were offered in a pretty respectful fashion.  No personal attacks or anything.  And it was pretty solid advice, IMHO.  It's not to say you can't have complex concepts in your fiction - just that you need to be thoughtful in how you present them, ensuring that readers of the widest possible background can appreciate what you're bringing to them.

I don't know that it's 100% applicable, but I'm reminded of something Isaac Asimov said... although my search turns up no actual quote.  Essentially, he said that people told him that there's no way to write a good sci-fi mystery, and that he disagreed.  He said that it's totally doable to write a good sci-fi mystery, and even to use crazy tech in the solving of the mystery.  You just can't make it so that the detective suddenly pulls out the magical MacGuffinatron to do so.  If you want to use the MacGuffinatron in the resolution, you have to bring it up earlier in the book and explain what it does.  Then, the reader has the chance to think ahead, solve the mystery along with the detective, and not feel cheated.

So... hopefully that's useful.

You know - you can load up your last save before the final fight and end it differently if you want. :D  That's what I did.

Dios - I should have asked: what do you guys play?  And at what level?  I can play guitar on hard or expert - although I'd stick with hard for a 64 song marathon - and I can sing on expert, but on drums, medium is the best I can do.  Actually, I probably shouldn't have asked, because I know I can't take the time to play that long. :)


OK, and I'm a sucker.  I don't even like GTA, but I bought it on the iPhone, because I feel like that kind of development effort on an iPhone game should be supported.  It's fun, but I know I won't bother to finish the plot.  I'll just goof around.
1914  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How long do you play games a day? on: January 25, 2010, 10:10:05 AM
Depends on the day of the week.  I travel, so I'm only home three days a week.  I wake up before my wife those days, though, and play between 2 and 4 hours until she does.  It's my only home console time.  I generally play some casual stuff on my iPod Touch while I'm waiting for things later in the day - like if I order takeout and it's not ready yet - but not hours and hours.  During the week while I'm away from home, I probably put in another 1 or 2 hours on portable platforms (again, these days it's mostly my iPod, although I've been hitting Torchlight on PC lately too) while I'm sitting around the hotel at night with nothing to do.  Sounds glamorous, no?

It's fairly likely that I play games more than I should, but I realized that a long time ago and decided that since there's no way I was going to change that, I might as well use it.  That's why I write about games for this site, and for another before I started here.  I've got just as much social life as I want, but I'm 34, so I'm probably not looking for the same level of social life you would be.

That description wouldn't seal the deal for me... except if I knew the author, in which case I'd read it anyway. :)  It's not terrible - just not grabbing me and giving me a "must-read" vibe.

I actually like long books.  If it's under 350 pages, I figure it's probably for teens.

In that case, stick with the blue shirt!

Wish I could join, Dios - I <3 Rock Band big time.  But I also have it on the 360, and am too cheap to pay for a Gold account for just one game. :D  I'd never play anything but Rock Band online.

Beat Dragon Age as a dwarf commoner rogue goody two-shoes.  Went one way on the final choice, then reloaded and went the other.  Felt like the way where
Code:
I died
was way more satisfying.

Started over as an elf mage chick, intending to take the opposite paths that I did the first time around... although that may not always make sense.  Oh, well.  Also, I realized after I was a while in that I intended to
Code:
make a baby with Morrigan...
and that's not going to work now.  I assume there's a way around it, based on what I saw in my first playthrough.

Edit: lol - when I made this post first, I accidentally clicked "quote" instead of "code" on the spoiler parts.  Made it look like I was doing virtual air quotes. :D
1918  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Are you going to upgrade your DS/DSi to the DSi XL? on: January 23, 2010, 11:27:29 AM
My mother-in-law has a DS of some kind, and it's getting old and busted.  We'll probably get her one of the new behemoths.  Frankly, I think she's the target audience for this thing - not people my age or younger.

after i posted this yesterday it occured to me that someone could be ignoring me due to some of my recent signature pics. and if thats the case it's probally best that i dont know who they are =P

I can't tell anything from the current one - they're just two people.

Never played a Persona game - guess the time has come.  I'll plan to play this unless I get a bunch of "you can't jump in at #3" responses here. :)
