If you want 108 stars your practically required to read a guide. So many are only available for a short window of time, and their prerequisites can get pretty redonkulous. (FILTHY GODWIN DEVILS!!!)

Isn't that every Suikoden though?

Suikoden V has my favorite characters. That's why I love it so much. I also love Falena, the plot is great and it brought back the battle system we had been waiting on since 2. Including the upgrades 3 brought in. It's everything 4 lacks. I barely knew 4's characters, the Island Nations barely had any identity other than being on islands, the plot was rushed and anti-climactic.

Some complaints are totally legit. I don't think the load times are annoyingly long, they are just there and places like Raftfleet like Dice said are annoying to navigate because of it. Raftfleet is pretty much an exception in that though. Beside the Headquarters, most towns are 2 or 3 large screens wide and don't require a lot of loading.

Graphics are subpar. Unite attacks don't look particularly special, they they are powerful.

The plot starts off slow. I don't view it as a negative because I DON'T think it's boring. Slow to get to going and incredibly dull are two different things. At the very beginning we are thrown into the Lordlake situation with no information at all until we slowly unravel the mystery surrounding it. From arriving back at Sol-Falena and meeting Arshtat and her situation, a lot of it super cool world building. We meet so many important characters that get their payoffs later and I love that kind of stuff. It's like Game of Thrones.

All of this stuff is subject to it being 2:30 am and be being very sleepy.

I just bought a 3DS, and I'm in the middle of playing the Wii version of Xenoblade for the first time.  Don't need a new one of either.  I'll be just fine.

Been playing a lot of stuff so I'll just do this quick, no frills:

Xenoblade Chronicles - Just did some quests so I'll be ready when I want to move on with the story. I like when I do a quest where I have everything already, especially if its a 5-part scavenger hunt. =P

Where are you on this? I ask because unless you're advancing in on the Mechonis, you really don't need to do sidequests at all and in fact shouldn't do them all in one go since you'll get way too overleveled and turn the better part of the game into a cakewalk.


I'm at the end of the Satori Marsh. I've actually have been skimping on quests up till now, so I'm doing some so I can stop getting clobbered...and won't have to do too many quests for a while afterwards. In fact, the only reason I did these quests was because despite being a generally annoying place, this game is so fun to explore, and some of these quests forced me to enter areas I might've avoided since the marsh is sort spread out and you can miss a lot of monsters if you just take the main road to the gate.

Gee golly mickey that is quite a rotation that you've got going there. Paint me impressed.

If that were my gaming agenda I'd go bonkers. It took me my whole adult life to manage a 3 game rotation. LoL.

And this week for me there was NO rotation whatsoever. I played the hell out of Xillia 2. Can't put it down.

Actually, I don't usually have "rotations" - I play one or two "main games" and then I play a smattering of other games in between to satisfy my ADD. =P

But I see I forgot to mention: Most of those games were played so I could test my brother's fancy TV, which I'm borrowing for a while. (He hardly ever used it anyways...) In fact, I still have two or three more games to test out because I feel like it.

My main games are:

Diablo III: UEE (just bought it and playing it with my bro while he's here for the weekend)
Final Fantasy XII (I want to beat it before TGS because I still have 2/3rds of the FF series to finish...)
Fallout: New Vegas (Despite being not as good/well-paced as Fallout 3...it actually runs well on my computer, unlike Fallout 3)
realMyst (Because it's easily the most interesting game I've ever played, weird movement aside)

I have a feeling I can add Fragile Dreams once I get to it. I'll probably cycle through the other 6 every once in a while, but then again, I might not.

How do you even "reboot" Underworld?

Underwoirld done in a different style is just another brand of vampires vs. werewolves.

Probably.  And with a market saturation of vampires/occult, now's the time to strike since they were too early for the first wave that was, unfortunately, kicked up with the Twilight Saga.

We could make an entire topic of "things that in the end were never explained or followed up on in games"

There's a lot of 'little topics' like this I've been *dying* (not lit.) to make but just can't imagine it'd work too well.  But I have always wanted to make a thread about "little things" like that or other 'notable noticeables'.

The problem really lies with Konami not having the money/man power/know how/source code/effort/skill/shits and/or fucks to give to ever bother. They pretty much need to keel over or wind up in such dire shit to want to sell the IP off to Nintendo or thereabouts before we ever see a remastered Suikoden anything in the next 20+ years.

Also we'll never know what was up with Jenne either.

I died. xD

And shit forgot about her. And Viki too for that matter.

But seriously...How the hell hasn't there been a remaster or re-release of that series though?  I mean, FUCK.  I'd love to play them again.  I do remember 5 being good (especially a good thing coming off Suiko4's notoriety), but having a few things that really bugged me.  The plot took waaaaaaaaaaaay too long to get rolling but also everything felt kinda....eh.  The graphics, the music, the battle felt (if we had to go numerically for a review lets say) like a 75% (B-grade) in every category.  I really gotta replay the game though and re-evaluate it --- mainly because I know Mongoosey holds the game in high regard.

To this day:
= We'll never know what's fully up with Yuber....will we?? :(

As for what I've been doing, its been cussing at Serenes Forest's data in regards to inheritance because my most recent comparison has revealed to me that either some of their numbers or their calculation formula are wrong. Fortunately, I still have the hard data points necessary from my previous runs to recalculate later on, but its gonna take me a couple of runs to find out why my numbers are coming up so wrong before I can make any more progress towards this endeavor.

I can't afford a new model of 3DS.

Well, I guess I could, but I'm sick of Nintendo releasing new and improved versions every year. Makes me feel cheated.

Yeah I feel this.

I'm excited because I think I've liked or loved every 3DS game I've ever purchased; but I don't want to invest in another system (I do love the Super Famicon coloured buttons though...hooo-lee sheit I do).  I almost want to say I hope it doesn't catch on.  Are the specs better as well (fancy features aside)? 

This seems like a pretty rough sell otherwise; a chance that companies don't want to alienate older-model users so they can use the tiny analog nub and extra shoulder buttons.

I do admit a handheld version of one of my favourite games ever is STILL tempting too. But...
