Sweet.

That's an interesting point to raise.  But as far as Achievements and Trophies go I think Microsoft are very much against the idea of Trophies sharing the same description.

So unless Square Enix are prepared to create 2 different lists of descriptions and rewards - 1 for Achievements and 1 for Trophies then I can't see this happening.  

It would be interesting to see though...


I don't think MS is going to restrict SE from doing whatever they want with that. Since it's PS3 exclusive in Japan, I'm pretty sure the trophies would be higher priority than achievements. Besides, MS is just happy they have the freaking game on their console.

I don't HATE achievement, but I'm not going to go out of my way if I don't get something in-game for accomplishing that goal. Much Like D-Rider said, Mass Effect did that right. I got alot of the achievements on Oblivion as well, without even meaning too.

Calcabrina is annoying. Casting slow helps, as always, then use your strongest attacks to kill it before they combine or before they split. I ususlly bolster my party with protect, shell, and definitely haste while they are separated and then own them when they combine.


I can beat the dolls no issue, once rydia comes back golbez spams bio and fiara and I'm toast.


I had problems with that battle too. What I did was use Rydia and Cecil to revive the others and heal until I was in good shape, then I used libra to check his weakness and used the corresponding summon with Rydia. I think it took me 3-4 summons before he died.

Why the fuck is it so impossible for people to spell ROGUE?


Man, don't ever play World of Warcraft if that bothers you. :P


AGREED.

THe NA boxart looks awesome.

I like the normal version more, to be honest. Colorful and dynamic. Very cool.


I thought so too. I think it's the best boxart of the series in NA, but I went in some forums on IGN and GS and they all hate it for some reason. Oh well, I think it looks awesome.

And I'd rather game while lazing on my sofa with a wireless controller staring at a 46" screen instead of hunching over a keyboard and mouse.


Now that is the truth.

So, here's the boxart for the special edition:



And this one is the regular, from what I've seen at retail websites etc..

Wait, are you saying Sweeney Todd is awful or The Wizard of Oz? I love Sweeney Todd. It is possibly my favorite movie from last year.

I think Wizard of Oz kinda transcends the whole "musicals-are-for-girls" thing. Pretty much everyone has seen it a million times.


Sweeney Todd FTW

I'll play it. I'm not afraid to admit that I love the 1939 movie. It's a freakin classic.

I've played some Abyss, and I have no idea whether I want to stick with it because the gameplay's fun or ditch it because it likes repeating itself too much and isn't as strangely likeable as Legendia was for me. Abyss is just reminding me of what bugs me with a lot of RPGs (and anime) more than being charmingly cliche. I bet the characters are the deciding factor for both.

Oh, and I'm thinking Vesperia's demo may be one of the worst I've seen for an RPG. I have experience with the series yet I'm dying to the boss while exhausting supplies, what the hell? I'm probably playing it wrong, but that shouldn't be a huge concern for a demo trying to sell me on a game.


I quit Abyss 35 hours in because I was bored, but I went back to it the next summer and finished it up. Total was like 54 hours I think.

So my dad is a huge nut about having retarded PC hardware.  The first rig here is my personal rig, the following two are his desktop and laptop.

3.0ghz P4 w/ HT
1GB RAM
256mb X700

Nothing particularly special, but it runs WoW just fine.  Now my dad's computers are what I use as review rigs for hefty PC titles.

Desktop:

1.8ghz core 2 duo
2GB RAM
786mb 8800GTX

Fairly nice machine, and it's got a 21" monitor connected to it.

The last is his laptop - and while it's got retarded specs, take into consideration I had to carry this thing around E3 for several days because my ibook stopped working

2.4ghz core 2 duo
4GB RAM
SLI 512MB 8700GTs
17" screen, 1920x1080 resolution

Yeah, retarded.  Weighs like 15 pounds, too.


Holy crap, 4 GB of ram on the laptop!? That's awesome.
