I played the beginning of FFT (I've never played it before) on my PSP, and died on one of the first battles because of a stupid move. I'm looking forward to playing it some more, but I think it might be better to finish a couple of games first.

When I tried to play FFT on the PS1, I didn't realize you could actually have more than just one person on your side in the second battle (the one right after the fight where you only control yourself).

Last night, I bought Pursuit Force 2.  I loved the first, even though it was really frustrating at times.

That is some scary, scary shit.

That's what I came in here to say.

Is he morman, by any chance?

No, and what the crap?  Why would you say that?  Did you get some kind of idea that everyone LDS is some kind of irrational idiot?  Because we aren't.  

Of course, there are LDS jerks just like there are Catholic jerks, Lutheran jerks, Muslim jerks, atheist jerks... but they're the minority in the Mormon church just like in the rest of those groups.  One of my local church leaders is a professional musician, a few of my Mormon friends are artists, at least one of whom has worked in video game development...  Anyway - just had to "defend the faith" as it were.

I finished off Soul Nomad the other day...

I really liked Disgaea - do you think I should play Soul Nomad (assuming I find the time)?

Haven't we all had that dream?  ;)

Is the motel scene the bit with Trashcan Man and the psychopath or where Lloyd and that other guy go round "pokerising" people?...

The one with Trashcan Man.  Still gives me chills - guess I know what I'm phobic about!  Tell you what - I did not feel too bad when that guy got
eaten by wolves.

Also read all of I Am Legend. Its a bit more realistic than the movie, as i thought it was a bit implausible that Will Smith's character was a police marshal and a brilliant scientist - Neville is just an amateur in the book.

I felt the same way - just read that book, and I thought "well, I guess they had to leave that out for time."  The Vincent Price movie was similar - he was a research doctor trying to cure the disease before everyone died.  The book is great.

Now i've started on Seventh Son, which is apparently "the most important american fantasy since the original Thomas Covenant trilogy". Um, shouldn't the most important american fantasy be Ursula le Guin, and shouldnt A Song of Ice and Fire be the most important one since then?

I couldn't say on Ursula le Guin, because although I have her books, I haven't read them yet, but Seventh Son was written before Song of Ice and Fire, so it's still fair to say that.  I love the Alvin Maker series (of which Seventh Son is the first book) - easily one of my top five fantasy series.

One Red Ring of Death here, and I got a few "dirty disk" errors from my old Xbox, but they weren't the "system's dead" kind. (Whew.)  No other problems with any other console ever.

o sexy.  I corrected her in saying was.  She was not impressed.  Then again, she was even less impressed when someone piped up behind me saying he'd make a lovely pile of compost.  :P

Dark.  I like it.

Degolas, your status reminds me of a bit from Family Guy - Stewie has a kid tied up in the basement and Lois comes down to do some laundry:

Lois: What's going on down here?
Stewie: Oh, we're playing house.
Lois: That boy's all tied up.
Stewie: Roman Polanski's house

If anyone wants an invite to the beta, PM me. I've got two.

I IM'd (in case anyone goes "I wonder if he still has two?").  I played Diablo 2 for something like 5 years on and off.

Gitaroo Man - I played the original on the PS2, because I love rhythm games, and it kicked my butt six ways from Sunday.  Can't remember how far I got, but I don't think it was very far.  Something in space?

As to actually playing something, I just beat a game called Warriors of the Lost Empire on the PSP tonight.  I'll be writing up a review for the site - one of only one or two reviews out there for this game, from what I can tell.

At home, I'm playing Rock Band and Half-Life 2 (I played Portal first thing when I got The Orange Box, and it was awesome).  Planning very soon on buying the new Pursuit Force for the PSP (I think it's still coming out next week) and maybe starting some other new RPG on the PSP, but I don't know which one yet.

I tried playing Puzzle Quest as a few different classes and noticed big difference in how their skills affect the game.  Both versions do have bugs, but from what I can read, the DS version's bugs are more performance-based.  Weird numbers showing up, big lag time on certain events, that kind of thing.  Frankly, after seeing what the companion skills do, I didn't feel like missing them was that big a deal.  Also, from what I've read, the DS controls are more difficult because the gems are smaller (and therefore hard to hit with your stylus) and can be harder to distinguish from each other.

I really enjoyed Puzzle Quest - the battles are fun, and using your skills well can make a huge difference in your success.  There are several different gameplay modes that let you improve your character, and they're fun too.  As an "audition" for writing for RPG Fan, I actually wrote a review of the PSP version and gave it an 85%.

Gotta say - some of the crazy Wiimote stuff I've seen online makes me want to buy an extra just to connect to my computer and mess with...

9.0 from GameSpot. Take that as you will.

Well, I guess Kevin Van Ord isn't getting fired!

...that sucks, pretty sudden too.

...glad they finished filming Dark Knight at least..

That's what I thought.  Both parts.  I felt guilty, too.
2505  The Rest / General Discussions / Physical copy or DL copy? on: January 23, 2008, 10:11:08 AM
I'm a physical kinda guy, I guess.  I have downloaded a few CD tracks (legally), but given the choice, I'll take the physical copy almost every time.  Price is really the differentiator for me.  That's just how I roll.
