2266  Media / Brush and Quill / Book Thread Continued on: June 11, 2008, 09:15:42 AM
My wife stumbled across about 50 issues of Analog and Isaac Asimov magazines at a thrift store recently, so I just started reading that.  I've also been sort of rereading Piers Anthony's Xanth series.  It's OK, but not my favorite.

Also read a book online recently called Timely Persuasion.  Great stuff.  I feel like I mentioned it somewhere on these forums already... but it wasn't in this thread, so now it is.

I go to Dave & Busters fairly often, and they're always busy.  They seem to have a pretty successful model - restaurant + bar + arcade.  They focus mostly on games you couldn't have at home, like big two-player light-gun games, racing games with like 8 cars, stuff where you earn tickets...  As has been said, it's a different model, and that's probably what it'll take.

Gotta agree with D-Rider.  Flow is all well and good, but many folks are just not that into their music.  They like a song, they want that song.  I love music, as I think a lot of folks here do, and I can think of a few albums off the top of my head with a flow I wouldn't want to break, but it's pretty rare.

When I'm home, been doing the Wii Fit.  Picked up Rock Band again, but didn't really stick with it.  This weekend, I bought the House of the Dead two-fer on the Wii, but didn't get a chance to play yet.  Also got a game for the PSP called Alien Syndrome.  Will probably post a review to the site when I'm done.
2270  The Rest / General Discussions / RPGFan Community Photo Thread: 2007 Edition on: June 08, 2008, 04:18:10 PM
Wow - I wouldn't have thought those photos are of the same person.
2271  The Rest / General Discussions / Your Bookmarks on: June 06, 2008, 07:12:21 PM
Wow - only one fellow farker so far.  I have literally hundreds of bookmarks... but here are a few choice selections that I go to often:

http://www.rpgfan.com - duh.
http://www.fark.com - links upon links upon links
http://www.worth1000.com - a photoshop contest every day
http://www.plime.com - I love their upvote and downvote system (they probably aren't the only ones who have something like that - I just love theirs).  There have been a bunch of times here on the Fan that I've wanted to upvote someone's comment (and sure, a few times where I wanted to downvote one)
http://www.the-editing-room.com/ - "abridged" scripts to movies.  Usually way funnier than the original.


http://reader.timelypersuasion.com/Introduction.html - I don't go to this site every day, because it's a book, and I finished reading it last weekend.  It's a free book, available online, and I've recommended it on another site already, but since I haven't brought it up here, it's worth mentioning again.  Somewhere on the book's site, it's described as Back to the Future meets Quantum Leap in Rock and Roll Heaven, and that's pretty fair.  You can read it free online or buy a downloadable copy or even a physical copy if you love it.  I really thought it was a great book.
2272  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Jeanne D'Arc on: June 06, 2008, 02:03:03 PM
In terms of great PSP games, here's what I've played and loved.  I'll put an asterisk next to RPGs.

God of War
FFT *
Jeanne d'Arc *
Syphon Filter (both of them, although I prefer the first)
Disgaea *
Burnout Legends
Patapon (more OK than "loved" - sort of RPG - see my review)
X-Men Legends II *
Puzzle Quest (sort of RPG)
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance *
Killzone (more OK than "loved")
Pursuit Force (second one's better than the first)
I love the Katamari games, although I haven't played it on PSP
Dungeon Siege is OK
Justice League Heroes is pretty good
I thought both of the Untold Legends games were OK, too.

Anyway, that's a bunch, and I may have missed one or two.
2273  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Yahtzee does Oblivion on: June 05, 2008, 07:49:39 AM
Yahtzee's establishing a dangerous precedent here - two RPGs in a row.  This week, he reviewed Oblivion.  A strange choice, seeing how long it's been out, but who cares - it's funny stuff. :)

It's like how legendary adult heroes seal the supreme evil demonic overlord away and he comes back after 1000 years more pissed off than ever and a bunch of children have to defeat it.



HAHAHAHAHA!  Nicely done. :)

De Rais' is somewhat off...


Yeah... I'm actually kind of glad I don't know the true history better than I do.  Makes it easier to think of them as just fictional people not really based on anyone.
2276  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Jeanne D'Arc on: June 04, 2008, 11:12:18 PM
Heck, if you just plain like strategy RPGs, the PSP is a great system to get.  There are at least a few really good action RPGs on it as well, and there's a ton of other good stuff on it, some of which can be had pretty cheap these days.

(No disrespect to the DS - tons of great stuff on it, too.)

Quote from: "Ryos"
My only disappointment is that I couldn't play my new PSP on my old TV.  The accessory said I could, but that's only for stuff other than games, which, uh, is kind of the reason why I got it.


That was sad for me too - if I remember right, it's not really clear from the packaging that you can only play movies on old-style TVs.  I really wanted to be able to hook that puppy up to my laptop (I have a USB video in card) and record videos or even just play on a nice, big screen. :(

Quote from: "Ramza"
...the translation was like, 6000 times better. :P


Amen to that, brother.  I was serious in my review - the level of "awful" in the translation the first time around singlehandedly stopped me not only from enjoying the game, but from even playing it.  The PSP version rolled around, and it was Awesome City.
2279  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Jeanne D'Arc on: June 03, 2008, 08:01:49 AM
Agreed - it's a very good game.  Even with the fact that there are a bunch of strategy RPGs on the PSP, it's well worth playing.  The mechanic of trying to get your enemies ALMOST dead so you can zip around eliminating them in one turn is awesome.

Creepy. Reminds me of The Wizard of Oz with that one song...Dark Side of the Moon?


It's the whole album:
