Bastion/ Xbox controller on the fritz... halting progress.

Atelier Escha and Logy/ Life on the fritz... halting progress... slag graveyard was cool though.

Getting back to my RETRO GAMING WEEKEND!!! Yes, indeed. It needed to happen. Without scheduled time to enjoy the titles of yesteryear, I clearly can't seem to incorporate them in my gaming routine. And so I will reinstate, my highly regimented routine of playing nothing but retro games on the weekend.

To kick it off I was torn. I have wanted to play-through both Terranigma and Romancing Saga 3 for years. I think I am going to move into Terranigma first because I am really feeling something a wee-bit more action oriented.

In other news, upon joining the Raptr community due to being jealous of Blace's awesome cross-platform consolidated sig, I have been trying to get my profile up to date. I made mention of this a few days ago in the haps thread. Well, to my dismay, updating hours on Raptr happens in real time.... to add insult to injury, it seems to cap manually tracked hours for the day and disregard whatever you log beyond that. Why does this suck?? BECAUSE I SPENT MORE TIME THEN ANY MAN IN THE RIGHT MIND WOULD ADDING SIX HOUR INCREMENTS TO ALL THE GAMES IN MY LIBRARY AND IT WAS ALL FOR SQUAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I give up. Sometimes a mans gotta know when to say enough enough. I don't care if my Raptr profile accurately reflects my hours. Its enough to have a cool sig with consolidated achievements I suppose.

You are going to have to do what I did and just start tracking games from here on out. I didn't even want to try updating all the older games I played, hence why my profile only has the game I have played since 2012. You can do 6 hour increments as often as you want, the current one just has to finish before you can start the next one. So technically you can do 4 a day.

According to the NPD report from last night the Vita did indeed see a sales spike thanks to this game in the US. Exact numbers weren't given though. PS4 outsold the XOne too despite the bundle with Titanfall being 100 bucks cheaper than the initial cost for the system. That's pretty bad if you ask me.

Well guess I'm buying another RPG for my Vita then haha.

Just got the Neon power in InFamous Second Son. Really liking this so far. I've already unlocked a bunch of trophies for completing half of all the missions and collecting half the shards so this must be a shorter game than the others because I have only played for 4-5 hours. The Cole's Legacy DLC stuff has revealed pretty much nothing so far, although I'm only on mission 3 of it and it only unlocks after certain parts of the story are completed. Hoping for something cool to link this game with the others.
Neon is great especially if you are playing the game good. I find it hard to believe that you have hit the 50% mark at only 5 hours. The game is short, but I would think you should be at 10 hours at least. Don't get your hopes up on Cole's Legacy. However do check out Paper Trail because it does explore the game's background a lot and it should be unlocking soon.

Neon power is definitely awesome is you are on the good side. Makes capturing people and getting hero points so easy! I definitely got all of the 50% trophies after about 4 hours of playing. I doubt I'm 50% through the story though considering I have 2 story related trophies unlocked. I just crossed the bridge after that boss battle and got mysteriously dropped off to the other side. I just like clearing the areas of everything and finding all the shards before moving on in the story. Cole's Legacy was definitely pretty pointless other than Zeke returning which was kind of cool I guess. I started the Paper Trail mission today too.

What a beautiful day!


COUGH HACK AH-CHOO HOOOOOOONK


...Welcome, spring...welcome.

^^^ This...

So I noticed a fellow community members signature was a "Raptr" sig. I got curious and checked into this "Raptr".

I love how it consolidates your gaming status from across multiple platform and profiles. I DO NOT love how I have becoming obsessive about getting my profile up to speed by having to manually add games and hours to my library/profile.

I have spent far more time then I am willing to admit in the last two days getting my Raptr account to somewhat accurately reflect my gaming to date.

This is pointless. This is stupid. This is time consuming. I cannot stop. Help....

I do however want to publicly send my thanks to Blace for inadvertently turning me on to Raptr. I suddenly feel like my achievements are something to be proud of instead some arbitrary measure of some useless agenda that in fact has no real impact on anything.. I do not of course include PSN trophies in that statement, for as we all know PSN trophies are in fact an accurate measure of your self worth after all, but until now I sort of felt it was pointless to get achievements on other consoles/profiles. I now feel my gaming has a great meaning.

Expect my signature to change to the Raptr sig sometime in the year 2020 when I get it up to date.

haha well sorry for getting you addicted. I totally did the same thing when I started it up. Mine is only up to date from when I started gaming again back in late 2012 after taking like a 3 year break. You can feel free to add me as a friend on there.

It's time to stop using 15 year old games as the benchmark for bad voice acting.

Agreed. Voice acting was just starting in videogames. It is much worse when a game has bad voice acting nowadays rather than back then.

So much fun! I'll probably end up starting FFX-2 when I finish off Penance and the Dark Aeons... which is going to take awhile because I only have one ribbon armor and you have to have at least 2 characters with it, but I'm going to do 3 more than likely.

I think you could farm Dark Yojimbo for those (unless you already laid waste on him), or at least something 4 slotted with a high tier passive ability. I didn't have much luck with it myself, though. It kind of sucks how ridiculously expensive the defensive stuff in this game is and how it can be the only thing holding the player back from fighting the super bosses fairly (weapons too, but Celestial Weapons are good enough). I wish it just had something like materia system for the equipment.

Yeah I could farm Dark Yojimbo for them, but even at max accuracy for my characters I still only hit him like 50%. My luck is around 50-60 and needs to be farmed since it is the last stat left unmaxed, but it takes freaking forever to kill a Greater Sphere for the luck spheres and then Earth Eater for the fortune spheres. Mostly because Greater Sphere counters with Ultima every time it gets hit and Earth Eater counters with flare every time its hit... so time consuming. And then there are the times where you get Dark Matter instead of what you want. It makes me want to scream! Need a fast battle button like in Bravely Default.

Being a former reviewer I thought I would help out here. Editor's Choice awards were given out at the reviewer's discretion and mostly meant they thought it was a paragon of the genre we love so much and a must play regardless if you like action rpgs', strategy rpgs etc.. although this wasn't always the case. Ashton not giving Gungnir an editor's choice award from what I read was because he thought strategy RPG buffs would love it, but maybe not people who don't normally play the genre. Makes sense that he didn't give it an editor's choice then.

Little bit of irony here. I bought the Little Mermaid on blu-ray for my fiance when it came out and we watched it and it did not live up to my childhood memories of it. I was actually kind of disappointed. I had not seen it in probably 15 years. She actually didn't like it as much as she remembered either. I don't know what that says about us haha. I actually thought Frozen was better, although certainly overhyped like you guys have mentioned.

My break from Final Fantasy X meant switching to X-2 (what a grand idea).

I got angry with the first battle, but then I started to see where my initial addiction came from.  I actually never beat X-2 (a dead PS2 happened) so it'll be great to go at it again.

I got a bit further in Bravely Default too.
I used a Bravely Second thing to get out of a pinch in one of the boss fights...
Tiz: "You mean you don't have to wait for charge SP?"
BRRR.  Hell, the fact you could BUY SP with *real* money was bad enough, I definitely don't need a game character telling me about it.

I'm loving the boss battles though, the harder they get the more interesting they get.

I was going to start FFX-2 as my break from grinding for end game bosses in FFX, but now that I have the PS4 InFamous Second Son has turned into that game. So much fun! I'll probably end up starting FFX-2 when I finish off Penance and the Dark Aeons... which is going to take awhile because I only have one ribbon armor and you have to have at least 2 characters with it, but I'm going to do 3 more than likely.

Zanmato isn't hard to trigger at all and it only gets more probable the more you use Yojimbo and you can also get a boost with Yuna's overdrive. Truly the most broken thing in FF X. You need to kill Dark Yojimbo more than once without saving in between iirc, making him essentially the hardest boss in the game if he happens to kill off your Yojimbo.

Yep just realized that because I beat him once and saved and just started it back up and had to redo the first battle. Kind of dumb. He killed my Yojimbo this time too.
13  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: April 14, 2014, 09:01:04 PM
So I'm 2/2 on Zanmato now. Tried it on Dark Bahamut and it worked on the first try. WTF? I'm going to try it again on Dark Yojimbo to see if it works. This feels like cheating lol.

Edit: Ok I'm getting freaked out. Either I am the luckiest person in the world or my game is broken because I'm 3/3. Killed Dark Yojimbo on the first try as well.

Depends on your tastes and preferences.  First of all, I'd recommend the Ratchet & Clank HD Trilogy over either of those.  I'll (not) briefly profile all three to give you an idea. 

I was going to say this, but you beat me to it. Great games and the PS3 games and just as fun.
15  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: April 14, 2014, 05:30:58 PM
Wow I totally just one-shotted Nemesis with Yojimbo's Zanmato. I was probably going to beat it anyway, but I switched over to him to absorb Nemesis' huge damage move and paid him a couple thousand for fun. So legit haha. Now on to Penance.
