SAO is a popular anime about people trapped in a MMORPG.  Despite the name the game isn't online at all, it's single-player.

@ Suikoden II: Shit, another I don't know if I can/want to put in the time for. I really would love to though, I loved playing it so much... I really wonder if it's aged well after all has been said and done though haha

You could probably blow through the game in under 15 hours if you know what you're doing and don't care about getting 100% (and unless they fix at least some of the egregious bugs, which I highly doubt, the odds of that without spending a solid three months with a couple of guides in your lap are ridiculously low).

If .//hack were a dating sim, then more or less.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I'm personally just happy that I can finally complete the Suikoden series without forking over an arm and a leg. Unless Tierkris is canon...

It's not. It's an abortion.

Also, I can't believe we're getting another motherfucking Tales game over Type 0 or TiTs 2.

Utterly fucking ridiculous.

Tales games are to JRPGs as Twilight is to horror.

I'd equate Tales more to the Call of Duty series - It doesn't change as much as other popular games in the genre, it uses tons of visual tropes in its story (albeit Japanese anime tropes instead of american block busters tropes), and it releases pretty regularly.

Granted, I like Tales games and I used to like Call of Duty when I played FPSes, so I don't really think its that big a problem.

And Twilight was a romance novel so your analogy made no sense...

Jesus Christ you're on the level till Tales comes up and you use some clumsy and ugly analogies to demonstrate your 'disgust' for it.

I hate Dragon Quest a lot but I don't take a shit on every announcement for it.
And c'mon Twilight? Really?

Type-0 and TiTS SC are a RISK on the PSP given the extreme pirating rates, and we're actually getting the latter at some point.  For Type-0, I think as SOON as an HD/Vita version is announced we'll see that shit announced for NA/EU faster than a fat boy can run to cake and an anorexic would run to the toiler.  So, uh, calm your TiTS.

I take it this is also horror:

You *do* shit on DQ quite a lot.
I compared it to Twilight because they're both twee, generic and don't have a lot of substance. I think the comparison is fair.
And we're not talking about Type-0 or TiTS for PSP, we're talking about them for Vita, so the pirating thing doesn't wash. And TiTS 2 is PC only, which means console gamers don't get it. A Vita announcement - at the very least - would have been nice.
At this point, I'll just rip my Type-0 UMDs and play the fan translation.
This was the moment for Type-0, and they blew it.

Didn't Xseed say they were looking into a digital PSP (and therefore Vita) release of TitS 2?

Apparently it's already confirmed.
