Hey rob, you mentioned an ex that explaned how to play Vagrant Story? Is there any way that you know of a guide or something that explanes everything like that? I must have tried to play this game 20 times and just could not get into it because I couldn't figure it out. I always resisted looking because the story just seemed so awesome and I just can't look at a guide that contains spoilers and not peek.

I think there should be some guides on GameFaqs that avoid spoilers.  That should be a good starting point.  The game is amazingly deep, so be prepared for some heavy reading.

And I don't think I called her my ex.  I think I was very careful to avoid that, actually.  Ha!

Yep, my bad, you called her your REALLY close friend.
Radiant Historia is also awesome Rob, you just need to get a little farther into it. Also I learned the sword dance thing on accident before the game even told me I needed it.

I'm surprise that people get embarrassed by playing Bayonetta in public. That's like, the most manly activity ever created by mankind.

Fo' real.

I couldn't get into Bayonetta. I think that kind of overt sexualization (even in the campy, funny way) just drives me away. Not my thing. Plus, Devil May Cry has always fulfilled my need for "stylish hard action."

I got into Bayonetta not really because of the sexualization aspect, but purely the campy portion. I like my cheese.

My biggest problem was the lack of a cohesive "system" in Bayonetta.  Dodging some moves would trigger witch time while others wouldn't, which lead to lots of cheap hits and deaths.  Combine that with enemies that have some rather cheap attacks, a fucking awful camera that took three steps back from every advancement in the genre, and some of the absolute worst QTEs in any game EVER and you have a rather frustrating experience.  I died a lot playing Bayonetta, and every death felt cheap and undeserved.  I found DMC3 to be easier, and I know how nuts that sounds!
