I just preordered Xenoblade Chronicles for the Nintendo Wii. This could turn out to be the greatest RPG on the system. I can't wait.

I currently don't own any Wii RPGs, but I do enjoy the RPG genre. My favorite genres are Fighter, RPG and Action/Adventure(since those two are pretty much just shoved together nowadays).

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 03/17/12 01:24 PM

Yeah, that was kinda the point I was making. Wii owners have, until now, pretty much been left out in the cold in the RPG genre. I hope that this installment is somewhat stand alone, because I haven't played any of the other Xeno titles. I wonder if I should check out the anime Xenosaga to brush up first? http://www.rightstuf.com/cgi-bin/catalogmgr/YWi4SlvZwZDVgCtqe7/browse/item/92361/4/0/0

Kinda considering buying the Skylanders game for the Wii (the latest Spyro game), but not sure how much I want to invest in it.

It's on sale at where I work for about $40 for the starter version that comes with the game, the stand, and 3 figures.

However in order to play the game to the fullest, you have to buy more figures that are about $10 each, or $20 for 3.

Plus there is some new thing that actually unlocks a new level as well for about $20.

Is this the future of video games, where you have to constantly buy new stuff in order to unlock stuff already in the game?

Also let me know if Xenoblade is any good!

I played the Xenogears game on the PS1, and Xenosaga (Part 1 only) on PS2. Both were cool as heck, and Xenogears did have some pretty cool mechs.

The Xenosaga anime does cover pretty much the first game (that I can remember) and is pretty cool to boot. KOS-MOS kicks some serious butt (and of course she is voiced in a rather stoic fashion by Luci Christian).

It also features all the other regulars over in ADV land, since it was originally one of their titles.

Skylanders should come with 3 figured, so you don't have to get anymore to play it. Now, if you want to play more characters, you'd have to pay up the extra money to get the figures.

If you enjoyed the other installments and own a Wii, Xenoblade Chronicles is a must. Preorder now! I've been reading up on it in Nintendo Power for some time now. I'm so excited to finally be receiving an epic role playing game for the Wii.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 03/22/12 03:20 AM

Well I think in order to beat the game (I could be wrong) you have to have at least one character (figure) from each element.

As for Xenoblade, since its supposedly a Gamestop exclusive, I am sure they will have a ton of them.

Skyward Sword's ending is great. I highly suggest you push to reach it, as the ending cut scene is so worth it.

Sadly I have to agree with the Wii comment, if Nintendo ever does to Zelda what they do to Starfox and F-Zero I think it would end my buying of nintendo consoles.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 03/24/12 12:45 PM

I hate those creatures. Lost a lot of hearts on that part my first time through. Pro Tip for bomb bowling though, if you are sitting down while playing Skyward Sword sit to where you can hang your arm down so you can hold the Wiimote down and make an up motion. That will help a ton and a lot easier then bringing your hand up and trying to do it that way.

Also if you have trouble with the Harp, then follow the advise on this video. If you are not there yet, then just be ready as Caleb makes this look a lot easier then it really is your first time.

picked up armored core 5. to be honest i would have thought twice about it if i had known how multiplayer based it is, i mean the whole game pretty much revolves around it...i dont mind a little multiplayer every now and then but i tend to play games to get away from dealing with the maniacs in the world and i play them very casually, hopefully the people playing it are sane and not overly judgmental.
Posted by: kiku

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 03/30/12 11:57 AM

You and I are in the minority my friend. Have you noticed that the last two generations of games (say Wii and Gamecube eras for example) have all but eliminated bots/sims? There were a slew of first person shooters that had a spectacular and challenging single player campaign with multiple difficulty settings. The higher the difficulty, the more side mission/objectives, and subsequently; the more map you could explore. This was then combined with the fact that after you defeated (beat the pants off) the game, there was a multiplayer (in house, not internet) mode that featured customizable computer controlled enemies. Some of these gems even had level builders for this mode. I would sit up nights just building scenarios until the wee hours of the morning, and as you mentioned in your previous post; without the need for other players... that's what the enemy A.I.'s were there for. OMG I would fiddle with balconies and weapon placement and enemy behaviors and... well you get the idea. On a side note: This is one of the myriad reasons why I'm so ecstatic about Xenoblade Chronicles. It's a single player RPG and it's been said that even the most seasoned "quick play through" players won't complete it in under 70 -80 hours. Conversely; for completists it offers well over 120 hours of fun. To a single player guy like me that translates to probably closer to 150+ hours of fun. Whoopee!

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 04/05/12 03:32 PM

As mentioned in the Off Topic Forum "What did you just buy (non-anime):

I decided to get the Skylanders (Spyro's Adventure) for the Wii.

This game is pretty fun & rather addicting. If you get seriously hooked you can end up spending a ton of money. This is due to the little figures they sell.
In order to unlock everything in the game you need a Skylander of each element. Of course there are several (air, water, fire, earth, life, death, magic, and tech). The game comes with 3 figures (magic, tech, and water), but you can buy new figures as well. There are 3 packs (with 3 different Skylanders), a single pack (with one Skylander), and adventure packs that come with one Skylander (plus a thing that unlocks a bonus level & 2 items that do different stuff). The 3 packs & adventure packs are $20, and the singles are $9.
So if you want to get all 32 of them it's pretty expensive. The neat thing about them is you can take them to your friends house and they will have whatever powers & abilities you had on your game, in their game. Yes it's Multi-platform and all of the toys work with all of the games (including 3DS, PC, Wii, PS3, and X-Box 360). You can also hook up your computer to the Internet and do stuff on the website with your Skylander through the wireless gate (uses a USB).

Of course apparently there are rare Skylanders, and ones "exclusive" to certain stores. Most of which are just re-paints of certain characters. Of course this brings up the rather ugly side, with people selling fake rare figures on EBay (they paint a normal figure the rare color). Also there are supposedly Gold & Silver ones out there somewhere.

Personally I might buy a couple random figures to unlock the stuff in the game, and save them for when Skylanders: Giants comes out.
BTW you also gain levels, and the highest is level 10, of course you can buy poweres in the game with the gold coins you get.

Picked up one extra Skylander (again only going to buy one of each element).
This one is the Life Element being Stealth Elf, one of only 3 female characters (that I know of). She uses daggers as the attack method, and is pretty fast.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 04/06/12 01:20 AM

OK I switched up my idea. Got Bash (Earth Element) Skylander.
He is really slow, but hits really hard.
Probably getting Flameslinger for the Fire Element (ranged).
Then just pick the 2 coolest looking Undead & Air Element Skylanders I can find. That will be all, with exception of maybe getting all 4 adventure packs to do those levels.

I beat the main story of the game, so all I need to do is find all the stuff in the levels.

Xenoblade Chronicles impressed me from the moment I put it into the Wii. It's everything I hoped it would be. I'm overwhelmed (in a good way) by it's sheer size and complexity. It's visually stunning, and very anime-esque. So far I've been using the Classic Controller Pro. It's been awhile since I've been this happy with a controller in my hands. Now if I can just find time to play, so far I've only managed about an hour and a half.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 04/07/12 01:32 AM

Nice! I might have to grab that one myself! I do have the Classic Controller as well (used it when renting Tatsunoku Vs Capcom).

I picked up Flameslinger (Fire Element), and the Darklight Crypt adventure pack that came with Ghost Roaster (Undead Element). It also comes with an Elixer (get health back), and an Hourglass (stops enemies for a bit).

Ghost Roaster has a dash attack that is basically a giant ghostly head (complete with cackling laugh) that seems to be unstoppable (and was rather annoying to fight him in certain boss battles). Flameslinger is very long range and is great for sniping.

The Darklight Crypt level was kinda short, but had a pretty cool idea.
It had these buttons that made you go from the normal world to ghost world.
Each world had different enemies or obstacles.

So now I just need Air, and according to a guy at work Whirlwind is the way to go.

Hey, give me some advice! All of the bird statues offer to take me back up the sky. If I do this, when I fall back down, will I be able to choose where I land or will it be back at the beginning of the section?
I'm in the forest temple right now.
The game is fun, but the controls aren't as good as I'd like them to be. My bottom right to upper left swing can be read by the wiimote as being anything smirk

The bird statue will let you land where the statue is at, so do talk to all bird statues for your returns to it. I personally didn't have any problems with the Wiimotion+.

You can generally pick any bird statue within a region (green/red/yellow). There are however particular parts of the game in which skydiving activates plot points and will limit (or eliminate) your choices.

Regarding problems with controls:

Having the sensor bar in the "under the television screen" placement setting seems to yield the best results. Also important is to calibrate your Wii remote in the Wii System Settings. Furthermore, you can calibrate within the game itself. I usually do this when I fire it up. Also; if your camera's getting a little fussy in first person modes like when firing the sling(scatter)shot, press down on the control pad (cross pad) while in that mode and you'll be right as rain. Oh, and don't forget to measure the average distance that you sit from the T.V. screen while calibrating in the Wii System Settings. Many people don't think to fiddle around with these things, and once you do; you shouldn't have to again... unless you unplug the Wii. Even then it might remember your settings, I'm not sure. Take heart, I had no problem with the controls once I got used to them. Lastly, I got better results sitting in a chair than I did standing up; especially when bomb bowling. OMG I love bomb bowling! I also suggest dramatic sword motions, don't be shy; and don't forget your wrist strap!

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 04/08/12 03:11 AM

Discovered an odd fact today, apparently Fry's kinda goofed on the pricing of the Skylander Adventure Packs. Normally they run $20, but for some odd reason they have the price on the sticker at $20, but when you scan it, they ring up as $8.96. Which is the price of the single Skylander figures.

So I grabbed the Pirate Shores Adventure Pack (we were out of the Ice one, and the Dragon one has not been released). It comes with Terrafin an Earth Element Skylander (so I have 2 Earth, and it gives you a bonus if you have more than one), Ghost Swords (attack bad guys for a bit), and a flying treasure chest (let's you get an extra chest in each level, and works like a radar when you get close to the chest it gets greener).

The actual Pirate Shores level was kinda odd, since you don't really fight too many bad guys, you just play memory (which is timed). Since I am pretty good at that game, I got through it pretty quick.

You can also put the level things on the hub once per level to launch a pretty deadly attack. Darklight launches what looks like hail with a big magic explosion at the end, & Pirate launches a bunch of cannonballs.

I just got done with an eight hour stint on Xenoblade Chronicles. I don't know what hurts more; my eyeballs from staring at the screen, or my head from trying to wrap my head around how insanely ginormous this game is. Xenoblade Chronicles is by far the most ambitious RPG on the Wii, and almost undoubtedly on any Nintendo system. The whole game world is on the corpses of two gods, locked in battle!

Skullgirls and Pinball Arcade on the PSN/PS3.

Skullgirls is a nice looking fighting game and it plays very smoothly. However, it's also really hard. I'm talking Mortal Kombat 2 hard here.

Pinball Arcade contains real tables in an emulation. The graphics and physics are really good, but there are a few hiccups.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 04/12/12 03:59 AM

Picked up an Air Skylander in Whirlwind (I think it's another girl, due to the cutesy attacks like rainbows).

And got an extra Tech Skylander in Drobot, just cause I heard it was pretty cool.

Will go hunting tomorrow for the elusive Dragon's Peak adventure pack.
It comes with a Fire Skylander in Sunburn.
Then I will get the Ice Peak adventure pack as well (maybe at work).
It has a Water Skylander called Slam Bam.

Kinda considering getting 2 of each element just to make it even.
So I would need a Magic, Air, Undead, and Life (after buying the adventure packs).

Still having occasional annoyances getting my strikes to register the correct swing that I'm making, but I don't care that much. The rest of the game is fun enough. I just finished my first "Collosus" battle and am just fooling around at the moment & am collecting the flames to upgrade my sword.

I bought the game on Tuesday. It's a hard game to say the least, but I'm starting to get the hang of it. The biggest problem is that there's no command lists in the game, so you are pretty much on your own on figuring out the moves or searching the internet for the move lists.

Found Dragon's Peak at a local Toys R Us, got Kingdom of Ice at Gamestop. I had enough credit after trading in the LEGO games, and reserving LEGO Batman 2 for Wii (you get a LEGO Lex Luthor key-chain for reserving), heck I even had $5 left over.

Also picked up Cynder an Undead Skylander (she is in several of the other Spyro games as well).

So I just need an extra Air, Magic, and Life.
That's it! I swear! (it is rather addicting...)

I recommend getting Blazblue: Continuum Shift Extend then. It has a similar graphics style, but it has two different control schemes. One is like a Dynasty Warrior's control scheme (aka Stylish), where you dial a combo by pressing a single button multiple times and do some stringing. The other one (Tactical) is a much more complex scheme that is solely for the hardcore fans.

Xenoblade Chronicles is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite video games. It's so anime. I'm guessing that's why it's often referred to as a JRPG. It's not Moe or anything, it's f???ing epic! I'm bewildered by the sheer vastness of Xenoblade Chronicles. Not only in it's world, but the scope of it's story and characters; as well as it's battle and control systems. Awe heck, I'm gonna go play.

It is called that because it was made in Japan and it is an RPG. While most modern stuff that is released in North America is wRPG which pretty much just means "Western RolePlaying Game" which means it was made by a North American/European company.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 04/28/12 03:58 AM

I filled out my little Skylander army with some more (for a total of 16).

Sonic Boom: Air Type that is a griffin, it's roar attack is pretty good, and it also spits out eggs that hatch into tiny griffin buddies.

Stump Smasher: Life Type basically a walking tree, that has hammer like weapons, it can also spit out acorns for ranged attack.

Double Trouble: Magic Type sort of a witch doctor looking character, it's staff is really cool cause it's like a laser beam that automatically locks onto enemies so you can strafe, it also has exploding mask helpers.

I beat the game already, I just am going through & trying to get 100%.
currntly at about 96%. I took a couple of the Skylanders through most of the Heroic Challenges that I have (you get one with each new figure).

Stealth Elf is powered up with all 16 done (though she is not fully powered cause that would take all 32 to do), Sonic Boom did 15 of them, and some of the others have done a few.

They were only carrying the LE version of Blazblue: Continuum Shift Extend ($60). My local branch still has it.

For some reason, GameStop decided to pass on the regular version. I bought my copy from New Egg, but Amazon is also a safe bet.

PB is a fighting game which im not much of a fan of that genre but main reason im getting it is due to the fact its only 40$ bucks and u get a bunch of stuff in the special edition, oh and the game does look pretty good. (At the very least art wise)

Technically i shouldn't be buying RoAW2 yet because ive own the first one for months and its sat in my unplayed pile with like only an hour played so i really need to get to playing it before the 2nd one comes out next month lol. Im just getting it now cause i don't want to miss a shot at the LE and heck i would have bought it eventually anyway. wink

The limited edition is pretty decent and its only $60 and that alone is the going rate for most new games.

Diablo 3 is a lot of fun. Playing it reminds me of "the good old days". The game almost reminds me of Metroid with all of the backtracking that goes on in order to take previously unavailable paths. There have been quite a few changes made to the formula, but the game is a class act & I can't complain with this final product.

And odds are i wont be getting a new computer for months so i gots a long time to wait. frown

But on the plus side the Collectors edition comes with Diablo 2 and ive never played it before and my computer can run it so at least i can play it first and get the story and understanding of the game better set for when the day comes i can finally play Diablo 3. smirk

Got LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes for the Wii.
Since these games are pretty fun to play.
I had reserved it, so I got a small LEGO set with it.
The set is Lex Luthor in his power suit which looks pretty cool.

BTW this & the next LEGO game have actual voice acting.
Normally they just do "grunts" to talk.
They got some of the voices from the various shows & movies to do the roles. Such as Clancy Brown to do Lex Luthor (did you know he also does Mr. Crabs on SpongeBob SquarePants?).

The next game will be LEGO Lord of the Rings (with all 3 movies) coming in October. The previews they show for it include the lines from the movie.
There are already sets for this series in the stores. Most of which are from only the first 2 movies.

If you enjoyed LEGO at any time in your life (as well as DC heroes) go out and get LEGO Batman 2! It's a really long, really cool, and really good looking game.

Just in case you were wondering, my "relative" Harvey "Two-Face" Dent is in the game.

That's what I have been doing the last couple of days (and I only have 40% completion).

Did a mass drowning of my purple pikmin last night in Pikmin 2. Hate when I have to take those suckers by water. Even more so since I was so close to the end of the day and had done a nice job of not killing any Pikmin outside of a few loses in battle.
Posted by: Gevin

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 07/06/12 11:19 AM

I loved Pikmin 1 & 2. I'm pretty anxious for 3, I just hope that the Wii-U has a larger more diverse catalogue of worth while titles compared to the Wii. The 1st party titles tend to be amazing, but I just don't see myself getting 3rd party titles (that are available on multiple consoles) on anything other than PS3.

Make it worth my while, Nintendo. Trophies/Achievements? Fun & effective online play? Comparable quality of framerate/visuals?

I'm feeling like I'm about done with Diablo 3. The only thing that may press me to continue playing would be people to play with.

I just recently started Quantum Conundrum (off of Steam). I'll double dip onto PS3 when the opportunity arrises (sometimes my PC lags a bit while playing the game). Excellent game with excellent puzzles. I'd advise any fan of Portal or puzzle games in general to check it out.

I gave up on Nintendo when the Gamecube came out. Now to be fair I do own a Gamecube, GBA(i think that was the handheld with the GC), Wii and 3DS. Though I mainly just own the Zeldas, Mario Karts and a few other titles. Right now I am holding off on a WiiU as nothing stood out. I am sure once they release Zelda WiiU i'll bite the bullet and get one.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 07/10/12 12:04 AM

Got (really cheap) Yu-Gi-Oh! 5DS Duel Transer for the Wii.
I would guess something like this game actually happened in the anime.

It's a pretty decent game, and has a ton of cards (says over 4,500). Though getting a OK deck out of some of the packs is kinda annoying.

Right now I am on level 5 of some huge tower, and you roll a roulette wheel to get AP to move. Then you move to where another duelist is (they don't move) and duel them for $ (and sometimes keys/cards) to buy more cards.

The deck I am using is kinda a modified "beat down" deck I made on the last Yu-Gi-Oh! 5DS game on the DS (World Championship 2012). Basically a mess of Warriors with high attack (or other useful abilities) & spells/traps to help out. Once I get the right cards, I will make my best deck, the Fairy stomp deck (can kill you even if you are blocking). Or maybe the rather fun Six Samurai deck that could fill the board with (at least) 4 monsters on the first turn, and the monsters were at least 2000 attack (usually more).

I beat LEGO Batman 2, and got 100%. Took about a week to do so (even with the guide). Also finally got 100% on Skylanders as well. Still not really sure if I will bother with getting anymore until Giants comes out. Even though Frito Lay is doing a promotion giving away 4 "pet" Skylanders.
The catch is you have to buy the 20 pack bag (about $7) and then send in the UPC & special postcard (with a check/money order for $2) and then wait 8-10 weeks. The other catch is you number the postcard 1-4 with 1 being the pet you want most, and 4 being the least. Of course it says that "there is no guarantee you will get the one you want the most" right on the package.

The Game case comes inside of another cardboard case that looks like a book; real eye candy, it's covered in gorgeous bas-relief artwork. It also came with The Last Story Art Gallery, which is a nicely done 20ish page booklet filled with character art. I'm so excited. Now if I could only get myself to stop playing Xenoblade Chronicles.

Playing Resident Evil 6. All the QTE stuff in the beginning of the game got pretty lame/tiresome, but it seems to be letting off some now. These chapters are pretty long; I've been playing for hours and I guess I'm still on the first. Anyway, so far there are things I both love and hate about 6. One thing's for sure, though, it's much scarier and creepier that recent RE titles. Although, Revelations was pretty damn good.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 10/10/12 07:00 AM

I was playing RE6, but I just have trouble pushing myself to play it alone. It's fun enough when doing co-op, but really falls short in every possible way when compared to RE5. Possible plus is that there is more variety? In any case, I haven't touched it much.

Tokyo Jungle is a lot of fun. For those of you wanting a challenging/ more casual gaming experience this might be up your alley. Life is tough in the animal kingdom, but the years fly by & while it can get stressful at times with the objectives that pile up on you, it is fun to improve on previous playthroughs and unlock new animals I play as.

Annnnnd right now I'm all over Dishonored. A crazy assassination/ stealth game that ha you using very bioshockesque abilities. Highly recommended.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 10/22/12 02:03 AM

I played that game once.

It's apparently a dating sim, I got to see a bath scene.
Of course it's not really showing anything.

Anyhow decided to grab Skylanders Giants.
Though I kinda doubt I will buy any more figures for a while.

Cause you can use all the old stuff on the new game.
The only thing you need is a giant, which the game comes with.

If you don't have the old game you can get the "starter pack" which comes with the giant (life type called Tree Rex) and two normal Skylanders. Cynder (undead) & Jet-Vac (air). If you do have the older game then you just buy the "basic" version that comes with the game & Tree Rex.

The kinda neat new feature that some of the new figures (or new versions of old characters) is the lightcore feature. Basically you put the figure on the portal of power & parts of it light up. All the giants feature this as well.

As usual there are "chase" variants like glow in the dark figures, legendary figures, and of course "store exclusive" figures.
Plus there is a giant of each element (remember there are 8 elements).

The one good thing about this game is that you can adjust the difficulty level from easy to hard at any time. Unlike the first game which you could not adjust it (some areas were easy, others were tough).

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 10/22/12 10:12 AM

I gotta admit, combining figure collecting with a video game is great idea indeed. I'm glad I never got started with Skylanders. My wallet's thin enough already.

BTW Do the figures level up or grow in the game. If so; can you level up/grow one up, and take to a friend's house and put in his/her game?
Posted by: EricDent

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 10/22/12 12:19 PM

Yep, in the original game they went up to level 10.
In the new game they go up to level 15.

The only thing that leveling does is give you more HP.
You have to buy the power-ups (new abilities) with in game $.
Plus to make your Skylander better, you can do Heroic Challenges.
These challenges are pretty tough, but if you complete them it gives one of your stats a boost.

The stats are Speed, Attack, Defense, and Elemental Power.
The one thing about the older characters when transferring over, is that any stat increases will NOT be transferred over.

Yes you can take the figures over to a friends house (they can have the version of the game for ANY system) to battle or team up.

There are battle arenas to fight in, or you can just help beat a level.

Yes if you are not careful, this game series can be extremely expensive.
If you want all the figures, that is. Some of the figures from the last game are still really hard to find, and I am talking about just normal figures, not the stuff like glow-in-the-dark, translucent, or even silver/gold figures.
Of course there were figures from various toy fairs/comic cons as well.

Though this time it looks like Activision might be on their game a bit better.
Cause right when the game came out (on Sunday) there were tons of the new figures to get. Apparently the second wave is already out as well.

Though I bet that after Christmas these are gonna be hard to find again.

I bought three PS3 games recently.

Marvel vs Capcom 3 (original) - It only cost $10 at Kmart and the game really surprised me.

Soul Calibur 5 - I bought it over the weekend for $30 (used a $25 gift card, final tally $7.24). Surprisingly, my local GameStop still had a couple copies with the free character DLC, so that's an extra $5 savings since I don't have to buy it on the PSN. Unfortunately, it's not as fun as Soul Calibur 4, but still enjoyable.

Street Fighter x Tekken - I just bought it a few minutes ago on NewEgg. It only cost $20 and I got free shipping (and no tax).

The best game out of the bunch IMO is Soul Calibur 4. They perfection the create a character mode (introduced in SC3) and they had playable cameos of Darth Vader and Yoda from Star Wars in the game.

Lately I've been playing Hotline Miami, a PC game available exclusively through Steam. I'm very far from complete with Dishonored (I'm on my second playthrough), but this game simply demands to be played.

I've had this game for two days, have racked up between 5 and 7 hundred personal deaths, yet still have zero reservations in diving back in for more fun. Fine tuning your tactic & approach is extremely rewarding. Both Dishonored & Hotline Miami are highly recommended.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 11/08/12 11:43 AM

I am aware of the pending Wii-U release.
Not sure if I will buy it though.
Maybe in a while (when the price drops).

Or maybe when that LEGO Undercover game comes out (looks pretty cool).

The one thing that I kinda wonder about the Skylanders game for that system, is if it needs a Portal of Power to play it?
Cause I have heard the controller/pad for the Wii-U acts like the Portal of Power (you place the figures on it to make them appear in the game).

BTW on Pokemon, I caught my very first LEGIT shiny Pokemon!
This was totally at random, and not through other methods (like breeding a ton, or pre-set shiny Pokemon). I was just trying to complete the habitat list in each area, and needed a Venipede from Route 20. Wandered into the dark grass (rare Pokemon more likely to show up) and wham first Venipede I spot is a shiny.

If you're not aware a shiny is a slightly different colored Pokemon, that has a "sparkle" when it first appears. Some of them are way obvious (like Espeon is green instead of purple) while others are more subtel (such as Venipede who is a pink/purple instead of a dark purple). They are also really really really rare (like 1 in 7000).

There is a method of breeding a Pokemon from a different country with a local Pokemon that makes it like 1 in 2000, but that is still quite rare.

My Cube and Wii are precious treasures of mine. I have about 37 titles for the Cube that I like and about 39 for the Wii. I sold pretty much anything I didn't care for. I've got more than a few peripherals for both too. The beauty of it all is; if I'm stricken with poverty anytime soon, I can dive back into retro gaming as I am wont to do.

With the modern consoles(PS3 and Xbox360) hooking up to the internet with them is nothing. Plus with Nintendo now seemly joining in with the WiiU, not having your console hooked up may leave you out in the cold with the WiiU, PS4 and Xbox720 generation.

It shouldn't be too hard to get your console connected onto the Internet. I personally use a 50ft Ethernet cable to get my PS3 online. I rarely play online gaming, but I always go to the PSN Store and buy a few games.

Physically connecting isn't the runaround I'm trying to avoid. It's jacking around with the networks, online stores, and fees that I'm trying to avoid. It pisses me off. You give 'em the money for the consoles, you give 'em the money for the games, you give 'em the money for the peripherals & controllers, and then they expect you to give 'em money for the network fees and add-ons; no thanks.

Which is fine for a little bit but i appreciate my rpgs way more. Rpgs deserve more attention these shooters are getting out of control. Back in the day i really loved starcraft, warcraft, and diablo. However now i love my final fantasies, dragon quests, tales of games

This is true, ive heard that some of the newer consoles are possibly going all digital. I think its a bad idea because many people still dont have internet. And me personally i prefer owning a physical copy of everything, i hate digital

There are no network fees on the PS3 (free service). That only applies to the Xbox 360.

If all you want to do is buy DLC and the little digital games(great if you like classics) you can do that for free on the 360. 360 only has a fee to play online, Microsoft claims it is to help with server cost.

I don't think the PS4 and Xbox720 will be all digital. Though we maybe getting there by next gen. Even more so if the coming gen is as long as the PS3/360 was.

Just got my order of Atelier Totori yesterday and Atelier Meruru a few days back and now I'm just finally waiting for my Atelier Rorona to come in.

The reason why I haven't play either Totori and Meruru yet is because of the order of the game that came out. I'll being playing Rorona first than Totori than Meruru. I can't wait!!!

I agree! Lately, Sony has been making most of their disc based games available both physically and digitally on day 1.

It's also very convenient for niche titles, that go out of print real quickly. For example, I can't find King of Fighters XIII anywhere physically, but I can easily buy it on the PSN for $30.

However with the rising cost of games and the cost in manufacturing and distributing physical product. Many indie developers see digital downloads as a blessing and not a curse. There's no way in hell Zen Studio (for example) would be successful in their pinball games, if they were released out physically.

Personally, I don't have a problem with add-ons. It's optional to begin with and many times I find it more convenient than a burden.

There are some games that I really like and I wish there was some more content after defeating it. The add-ons fill in that itch. For example, I loved Soul Calibur 4 and after playing the game to death for 2 straight months. I was starting to get bored with it. On the PSN, there were a few add-ons for the game. One add-on gave me a new character (and a few extras) and there were a few add-ons for customization equipment. In the end, I spent $10.50 on the add-ons and I got another full month out of the game because of them.

One genre that benefits from add-ons is the pinball genre. The pinball developers (Zen Studio, Farsight) can release out new tables via add-ons. They are not forced to limit the number of tables that can be in the game like in the past.

FWIW, most PSN games don't have add-ons. For example, the recent release of Double Dragon Neon (remake) costs only $10 and it has no add-ons.

TL;DR: All I'm saying is that you are missing out on some great games with that policy of yours. Even the Wii has a few online channels, where you can buy some original games (Wiiware) and classics (Virtual Console).

This is very true. I enjoy some of the Arcade/Indy/Wiiware titles more then I do the big titles from the likes of SquareEnix and the like.

Also Joel makes a good point. I enjoy games that are called "bullethells" Here in America we would get a barely any but the Wii/PS3/360 stores allow for them to come out with them over here. As all they have to do is make sure the menus are in English.

I think the fear mainly has to do with like Capcom did with "Street Fighter X Tekken" where Capcom gave you a barebones game then put everything else as DLC. Capcom has since faced major backlash even getting their A rank taken from the BBB in the US.

To be fair, I think a lot of people blew this way out of proportion.

The game isn't barebones by any means. I just recently bought the title for $20 at Newegg. Without buying any of the DLC, I get 38 characters and a quarter of the DLC is available free of charge (2 free characters, 12 sets of colors (customization), additional auto combos and a few gem sets).

What really happened here is that Capcom decided to combine two games into one.

Instead of having you buy Marvel vs Capcom 3 for $60 and then have you buy Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 for another $40 (that contains 10 new characters and a few new stages) 8 months later. They decided to take the DLC approach and charge you $20 (digitally) later instead of $40 (physically).

The problem is that they decided to include all of the content on the disc (unlock code/shareware), instead of making it a download. I can see why they did it like that, because a lot of gamers would complained on the amount of hard drive space it would require. The Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition upgrade takes up an extra 4GB of my hard drive space for instance. However, that's where the backlash comes into play. If the content is available already on the disc, why must we wait and pay more for it?

They should have only put a portion of the content on the disc (such as the cut scenes, which takes up the most space) and made the rest of the content as a download (the actual character data).

It's not really a policy, it's just been my way. I've gotta keep some of my habits reined in to afford my anime habit. wink I also don't want to have a wireless router putting carcinogenic waves in my face, nor do I want a 25 foot cable running into the living room. I also don't really find the need (personally) to begin online gaming and participation (yet). Furthermore, I have an iMac, which limits my gaming realm on the computer as well. I've got about 300 hours into Xenoblade Chronicles on my Wii, and I'm still having fun. As far as computer gaming goes, I have yet to explore Steam. Plus, I can keep myself busy with Bioshock, Fable, Borderlands, Zuma's Revenge, and Bejeweled 3. Heaven forbid I become bored with any of that, I can fall back on a veritable treasure trove of old games and consoles that would love to be dusted off and played. Hard copy FTW!

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 11/16/12 02:30 AM

I picked up the latest LEGO game for the Wii.

LEGO Lord of the Rings: if you enjoy any of the LEGO games, go out & grab this NOW!
Its seriously the BEST LEGO game to date.
Plus the only one based on a Best Movie category on the Acadamy Awards.
(yes it features all 3 movies)
It also features all the voices from the movie (most likely just the actual movie was used for the voices), plus the usual silly stuff that LEGO likes to throw into the cut-scenes. Such as when Aragorn, Gimili, & Legolas (yeah a LEGO Legolas) get surrounded by the Rohan riders they do stuff like those old movies with swimming in them.

As usual there is a TON of stuff to find, and the world is freaking HUGE.
If you want you can actually walk from the Shire all the way to Mount Doom (of course it's easier to just use these "map statues" that are spread around to instant travel to the places you have found for them).

A small issue with the X-Box version (apparently the discs say "demo version", but are the whole game). There was also a slight delay in getting it out to certain stores (due to holiday).

Anyhow I have pretty much played it through the end of The Two Towers, and only at 25%. Boy is this gonna take a while to beat at 100%!

BTW one last thing, apparently Prima has decided to NOT do a physical strategy guide, so yeah it's gonna be a pain finding all the stuff.

One intersting feature is that you can mark a location on the map, and the "guide studs" (transparent studs that guide you to where you need to go) show you the path.

Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

It really is a fantastic game. It's really charming. Everything about it is extremely pleasant. There are a lot of things to collect and side-quests to do, but none of 'em ever feel like chores to me. And that's unusual, because normally I tire of such things rather quickly. The music is good, too. I can already tell the world map theme will go down as one of those tracks I listen to over and over throughout the years. Needless to say, too, the game is stunningly beautiful. I'm anxious to get to every new area just because I know there's gonna be some really good, new eye candy.

I made a few purchases for my DS on Amazon today.

Etrian Odyssey

Etrian Odyssey III
Soatorobo: Red The Hunter
Radiant Historia

I'm really excited. If I'm really lucky, Solatorobo will come with a CD soundtrack. I purchased all the games as "new" and they were all listed as "in stock" and "fulfilled by Amazon". The Etrians were actually sold by Amazon directly. I hope that they all actually find their way to me unscathed. Keep your fingers crossed for kiku. Apparently Etrian Odyssey is a real bear. It looks to be an unforgiving, but rewarding rpg experience. Solatorobo has received high praise as one of the DS's swan songs. Then again, it's also been labeled as furries. Radiant Historia was a real lucky find for me. I've been looking for an affordable copy of this for awhile now and this one is cheaper than most of the used ones I've looked at in the past. Both Solatorobo and Radiant Historia have unique and inspired game mechanics that are apparently anything but gimmicky. They both also have very appealing character designs. The Etrian Odyssey series is reported to ward off all but the most hardcore of dungeon crawler rpg fans. I hope I got what it takes. If all of these titles make it to me in the "new" condition listed I'll count myself as blessed.

Mucho expensive purchase. If I could afford it I would buy the limited release Fire Emblem blue N3DS with Fire Emblem: Awakening pre-installed.

Once you beat Story Mode, do be sure to tell how you liked it. More so if you have played MK(2011).

I'm about half way through the story mode right now and yes, I've played MK reboot (aka MK9, MK2011).

I personally like the execution of DOA5's story mode more than MK's at the moment. MK's story mode was interesting, but felt a little rough in execution.

As noted in the "what did you buy (non-anime)" topic I got a 3DS XL & Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

If you buy that game (or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon) with a 3DS XL, you get a free digital copy of a game (you choose from 5 games), One of which is Profesor Layton & The Miracle Mask (which I plan to get).

Come to think of it, I may not have beaten Phantom Hourglass. I think I travelled to a few islands, but don't think that I beat it. I remember becoming frustrated (irate actually mad) with the controls for the "roll" move.

Well bad news Kiku, "roll" move is the same in ST.

ST is a better game then PH though, hope you can over come that drawback.

Dream Drop Distance? Loved it. Of course I was slightly biased because I already loved The World Ends With You. And I don't think anyone really liked ReCoded.I only bought it to have the complete series. Do you have the prequel game Birth by Sleep on the PSP? Or Chain of Memories?
Posted by: EricDent

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 05/19/13 12:48 AM

No but I played both KH on the PS2.
Don't have a PSP.

I heard the game has a few issues with that new Flowmotion thing.
Basically it uses that more often than the normal attack strategy.
Plus I heard some enemies are super cheap & once they hit you into the air, you are toast.

Just wondering cause we have a deal for 18.88 at work.

Another game that was that price, which I did buy was Final Fantasy TheatrRhythm.

Once I got used to it, the game is pretty fun.
For some odd reason I did pretty well on my personal favorite FF title (9).
Kinda surprised that since 10-2 had lots of music, it's not included.
Posted by: sevi

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 05/19/13 01:29 AM

The Battle/ Interaction system are identical to the ones used in Birth by Sleep, not the other DS titles. Which is why I asked about that. It'll take a little while to get used to, but it's totally worth it. As for the enemies, I didn't have many problems, but maybe that's just me.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 05/23/13 02:54 AM

Well I decided to grab that Kingdom Hearts game.
For that price I said why not (it's normally $30 same as TheatrRythem).

Played it for a bit (Sora through Hunchback of Notre Dame level).
It seems OK, but the fact that you have to go through each world twice (once as Sora the other as Riku) seems kinda lazy game design.

Those Dream Eater things are kinda silly as well.
Not sure why they added a pet-raising thing with those.

So far it's not too hard, though as usual I like to play these on beginner level.

I just bought a PlayStation Vita today. I couldn't resist! I found it at a salvage store for $150 and it's a 3G model (that's half off the price). It has been tested and there was only one finger print on the touch screen. The system works great and I was able to buy a 8GB memory card for $20 at Sears (on sale).

I really love the Cross Buy program. I already have 10 games available for the system.

I just subscribed to PlayStation Plus. I just could resist the deal any longer, especially after buying a Vita last weekend.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 06/09/13 10:07 PM

So traded in some more games (3 games got you extra $10 credit at GameStop).

Got rid of these:

Castlevania Mirror of Fate: way too short for a "proper" Castlevania game.

Luigi's Mansion: was pretty fun, until the last level just suddenly amps up the difficulty to 11.

Super Paper Mario (Wii): Since I barely play my Wii anyways, I got rid of the game. It was an interesting title, just kinda get tired of the same old stuff with Mario.

Got this:

Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan.

Just something about it caught my attention.
Plus it comes with a CD of songs from the game.

Though I must say that I really can't stand the policies of GameStop.
They have this really stupid habit of just taking one box of the game & putting it on the shelf. Then proceed to sell all the new ones, thus after awhile you end up getting just a box with an envelope with the game in it.
Thankfully they were nice to provide an empty game case to store it in.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 06/09/13 10:44 PM

Etrain Odyssey 4: Legends Of The Titan is a fun game, but based off of what you say about games. I doubt you will like it.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 06/10/13 01:54 PM

Actually I kinda like long RPG games like Final Fantasy, DragonQuest, Etc.

So this game seems pretty good so far.
Obviously I am not grinding enough, cause I keep getting my butt stomped by those "large" monsters you can see wandering around.
Posted by: kiku

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 06/10/13 09:21 PM

Apparently that's pretty much the name of the game, with the FOEs in Etrian Odyssey. More often than not, the operative word is: "Run!"
Posted by: Cheap One

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 06/10/13 10:16 PM

You can beat the FOEs, you just have to play smart. You can't go running in and attacking. This isn't DMC or Ninja Gaiden.

I have yet to dive into my Etrian Odyssies... but I'm scared. Right now I'm playing Pandora's Tower and Super Princess Peach.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 06/13/13 03:59 AM

So we were getting rid of some old games that nobody wants to buy.
They clearanced some of the games to $1.50 (PS3, XBox, & Wii), and others to $1.00 (DS, 3DS).

So I got the Generator Rex game for the 3DS for $1.
It's a pretty decent side scrolling beat-em up game. Though it also is a bit challenging at times.
When you beat up the baddies they leave health & power units you can spend on power-ups.

The game has voice acting from the cartoon, as well as cutscenes.
Not too bad for $1 (the normal price was $13).

Had some $ left over on the E-Shop on the 3DS, so I got The Legend of the Mystical Ninja for $2.99.

Yes it's a GameBoy game.
Kinda similar looking to the Zelda games.
Only difference is that when you beat a monster/enemy & leave & come back they are also back...

Didn't get very far, pretty tough little game.
Of course I had no clue where to go.

Had some credit from trading in some games at GameStop, so I got the latest LEGO game for the 3DS.

LEGO Legends of Chima Laval's Journey.

Only the 4th original (non licensed) LEGO game on a handheld.
Besides this we had LEGO Battles, LEGO Battles 2 Ninjago,& LEGO City Undrcover The Chase Begins.

No clue what the story is of this, but have seen the sets.
They have these vehicles that can be launched at each other (old ripcord type launchers).
Looks like various animals fighting over something called CHI.

With the credit, I only paid $10.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 07/30/13 11:47 PM

Oh man, did I hit the jackpot. An acquantance of mine recently made it known to me that he had recently gotten his hands on a Nintendo Gamecube and some games and whatnot. Well, one of the whatnots just so happened to be the "The Legend Of Zelda Collector's Edition Promotional Disc Includes 4 Classic Games!" I'm not exactly sure where it originated from, but it was never available in stores, ergo the label on the front: "Not For Resale". It cost me an arm and a leg to convince him to part with it, but I got it. After a little bit of clean up, it looks pretty good. There's a couple of minor scratches, but it works. Anyhow... this little badboy's got: "The Legend Of Zelda", "Zelda II - The Adventure Of Link"," The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Of Time", "and The Legend Of Zelda Majora's Mask"; all on one Gamecube disc. It looks really nice on my shelf next to my: "The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Of Time/The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Of Time Master Quest Two-Game Bonus Disc". This was a promotional sort of thing as well, although it was actually available for purchase in stores for a short time. Also next to them on the shelf is "The Legend Of Zelda The Wind Waker" and "The Legend Of Zelda Four Swords Adventures". I love my Gamecube. I love Zelda!

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 07/31/13 04:55 AM

That was a preorder bonus for The Wind Waker, that is what the demo is for.
Posted by: kiku

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 07/31/13 11:09 AM

Ahhh, I see. Thanks Cheap One. I didn't get into the Wind Waker until years after it came out. I was a late bloomer; and I'm ashamed to say, that I avoided it early on because of it's apparent cartoony graphics; my loss... in more ways than one. The Wind Waker is a truly excellent game... and the 4 game promotional disc is quite possibly the greatest bonus ever included with a video game, ever.

Irregardless of past transgressions, and the cost of my newfound 4 game disc; it's great to have the original two games on the Gamecube, just in case the N.E.S. cartridges that I own cease to function. I wish now, that I would've picked up the Gameboy Advance Classic Series editions when they both came out; c'est la vie. I even got my hands on a second lightly used Gamecube last year as a backup. Furthermore, it's comforting to have the two 64 titles on there as well.

That reminds me, I've never beaten the Legend Of Zelda Master Quest disc. I'm going to have to work up the courage to have a go at that badboy one of these days... but it's so brutal.

Now that I think about it, my copy of The Legend Of Zelda Four Swords for the Gameboy Advance has The Legend Of Zelda A Link To The Past on it; as a backup for my Supe N.E.S. cartridge. In tandem with the Gameboy Player on my Gamecube, that makes for the first five Zelda games available on my Cube. Did I mention that I love my Gamecube?

BTW have you ever played Four Swords Adventures with 4 people? It's a riot!
Posted by: Cheap One

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 07/31/13 01:31 PM

Master Quest on the Gamecube isn't bad. The only thing changed is the dungeons. Jaba Jaba's belly is crazy in it. Would love to see your reaction to it. And good luck with the Water and Spirit Temples in it.

Never played FSA are any FS Zelda game. As I mentioned already I am the only person I know that plays Zelda. Thankfully there are places like ZeldaDungeon online I go there to talk Zelda with other Zelda fans.

Posted by: kiku

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 07/31/13 03:17 PM

Sadly, I have neither of those titles. I don't own a 3DS either, so I'm SOL for Link Between Worlds. Link's Awakening would be cool, not to mention Oracle Of Ages/Seasons; but I'm not made out of money so that's a quest that I'm not prepared to undertake.

This happened with DOA5 vanilla with the DOATEC Bunny suits for Kokoro, Helena and Lisa with Wal-Mart. It was never really promoted except for once on the Tecmo Facebook page.

The CM of TKE, Chin has already said they are mainly worrying about promoting Yabia the side game for Ninja Gaiden. So I doubt TKA is pushing Amazon to put up the preorder bonus on their page, hell the US DOA5U page still doesn't have a preorder page.

Who would've thought that a cute/cool wolf sun god game would have so many reasons for a teen & up rating? Apparently Monster Hunter Tri's online isn't supported anymore? Sad, because I heard that it was one of the best on the Wii. This is no matter for kiku though, as my Wii is not hooked up to the internet. All three titles have been touted as "best in series" at one time or another. I'm pretty excited.

It cost me an arm and a leg to convince him to part with it, but I got it. After a little bit of clean up, it looks pretty good. There's a couple of minor scratches, but it works. Anyhow... this little badboy's got: "The Legend Of Zelda", "Zelda II - The Adventure Of Link"," The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Of Time", "and The Legend Of Zelda Majora's Mask"; all on one Gamecube disc. It looks really nice on my shelf next to my: "The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Of Time/The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Of Time Master Quest Two-Game Bonus Disc". This was a promotional sort of thing as well, although it was actually available for purchase in stores for a short time. Also next to them on the shelf is "The Legend Of Zelda The Wind Waker" and "The Legend Of Zelda Four Swords Adventures". I love my Gamecube. I love Zelda!
I took my recently acquired "The Legend Of Zelda Collector's Edition Promotional Disc Includes 4 Classic Games!" to a local resale shop and they ran it through their resurfacer. Normally they charge for this service, but they did it for free; and it looks mint!

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 08/17/13 12:15 AM

Traded in Etrian Odyssey, Generator Rex, and LEGO Legends of Chima.

Got Mario & Luigi Dream Team for the 3DS (spent about $17 for it after trade credit).

So far it's pretty fun.
I think I played a bit of some of the other Mario RPG games of this sort.
However this one seems a bit easier to control as far as button timing goes (pretty good at getting excellent scores).
Only rescued about 8 Pi'llo people (yes they are pillows that turn into people).
To do that Luigi falls asleep on one of these pillows & Mario enters his dream.
You find & break a nightmare chunk (sometimes more than 1) to free them.

As usual for a bit Princess Peach was kidnapped by the evil bad guy (not Bowser). Of course Bowser does show up...

Bowser is never the bad buy in the RPG games. In fact in most of them you team up with him in some sort of way.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 08/22/13 09:53 PM

Hey Kiku, I really enjoyed both Okami & Okamiden.

The T rating is probably due to the Saki references, plus violence.

If you have a PS2, try to find the Katamari games!

Speaking of that, in Mario & Luigi Dream Team, there are special attacks.
In the dream world one of them is very similar to Katamari.
Basically you roll on top of a ball of Luigis & gather more by rolling over them.
Making the ball bigger, until you kick it at the enemy.

Not sure how far I am into the game, but Bowser still is teaming with the bad guy. They just got a new castle, and it zapped a few islands nearby.
So they decide to hide Princess Peach in the Dream World.

The Okami series is fun. It gets called a Zelda clone a lot, and I personally feel it is one of the few series that really is a Zelda clone. With Kiku's love of Zelda I am sure he will be a big fan of Okami.

I was looking over the GameStop website and seen Zelda: Link Between Worlds still doesn't have a release date yet. Hope this isn't a sign that Nintendo will have to push back the release as I was really looking forward to getting a new Zelda title this year.

I'm glad you dig Okami(den). That makes me excited to play them. Speaking of Mario & Luigi, I've got Partners In Time and Bowser's Inside Story in my unplayed pile; not to mention Yoshi's Island DS and Super Princess Peach. Actually, I'm a few levels in to Super Princess Peach; but right now I'm playing Summon Night Swordcraft Story and Pandora's Tower.

Bought a $20 Nintendo card in prep for Senran Kagura: Brust's release later on in the year. I will just add the difference in price once they announce it. As Xseed has said it will be cheaper then the normal 39.99 3DS game since it will be digital only and Nintendo won't force them to put it up that high to keep GameStop and company happy.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 09/08/13 09:11 PM

Traded in a few things.

Got rid of the Wii, cause I never play it.
Got rid if the charging stand that saved so many batteries.
Got rid of the classic controller.
Got rid of Mario & Luigi Dream Team.

They wouldn't take the Racing Wheel or the DS Lite.
DS Lite due to no serial number, and they don't carry the racing wheel.

With a special 50% bonus coupon I got over $100 in store credit.

I used some of it to buy Super Paper Mario Sticker Star.

As I liked the RPG elements of Dream Team (just hated the Giant battles).
Still have about $75 left so suggest away.

Played all of these (DS versions):

All the LEGO games
All the Mario's (except Mario Cart 7 & that one with the ton of coins)
All the Professor Layton's
All the Castlevanias
Metroid Zero
All the Pokemon (except the new Mystery Dungeon & Rumble)
All the Puzzle Quest
Henry Hatsworth
Legend of Starfy
Glory of Hercules
Might & Magic puzzle & strategy game
Most the Final Fantasy (not Crystal Chronicles)
Insecticide
Touch Detective 1 & 2
Millionheir
All the Dragon Quest games (except Monsters Joker 2)
Golden Sun
All the Yu-Gi-Oh games
All the Zelda games (except OOT, Majoras Mask & Windwaker).
Blue Dragon Awakened Shadow
Etrian Odyssey IV

I am not looking for a quick game (no fighting).
I also don't want to be easily frustrated, but it has to have some challenge.
Not sure if I would like the Animal Crossing game.
Never really liked the Final Fantasy Tactics game, but Pokemon Conquest was OK.
Really tired of Mario hop & stomp games.
Will be getting Pokemon X/Y.

If you're sticking with the DS (I'm assuming not the N3DS?) then there's always the Ace Attorney series. If you like RPGs then maybe something like Nostalgia, Solatorobo, Avalon Code, Sands of Destruction, Infinite Space, the Lunar series, Lunar Knights,or Summon Night. Or there's 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors and the sequel Virtue's Last Reward (3DS). Or weirder RPGs like Lux Pain, Time Hollow, Master of the Monster Lair, Contact or My World, My Way. Plus since you like Pokemon I'd suggest getting Elebits as it's a fairly similar premise and can be found fairly cheap. And there's always the Persona/ Shin Megami Tensei series, although some find it to be extremely difficult.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 09/09/13 01:59 AM

I would prefer 3DS, but DS works as well.

Phoenix Wright is tough to find.
Not really sure if I want a RPG.

Forgot to mention Spectrobes, that was OK.
TheaterRhythem Final Fantasy was interesting (but way too short).
I liked 364 Days for Kingdom Hearts , but didn't like Recoded or DDD.

Any opinion of Rondo of Swords (seen it on occasion at local stores).
Elebits? Might check that out.

The location I went to was a tad small, but there are several locations nearby.
Posted by: sevi

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 09/09/13 02:00 PM

Rondo of Swords is an RPG I've been meaning to get at some point, but I don't know much about it other than that it's gotten average ratings.
I should specify that 999 and Virtue's Last Reward are visual novel puzzle games with a murder mystery/ light horror theme, not RPGs.

Using some of my credit on a used DS game sounded like a good idea.
So while looking at a nearby GameStop they had a bunch of loose DS games in envelopes (you could see the game).

I decided to try the only LEGO game I had never played on the DS.
LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy.

Glad these have a 7 day return policy, cause it sucks.
See the "what you are playing" for further details.

BTW apparently the GameStop near my parents house has a copy of Elebits, so I will most likely grab that.

They all came in the mail today. Gunstar Super Heroes and Suikoden Tierkreis are both brand spankin' new. Both of the Golden Sun cartridges are in great condition, simply lacking manuals. I was worried that The Lost Age was malfunctioning, but I believe that I had simply not pushed the cartridge in all of the way the first time that I checked it. I've tried it several times hence, just to be sure; phew! I discovered an interesting thing regarding the Golden Sun games. Much like Etrian Oddysey 1 & 2, you can benefit in Golden Sun: The Lost Age if you've completed the original. I believe it's a password entry.

--Opened the package and the extras made buying the LE worth buying. The folding fan was a lot better quality than I had been expecting and the mini towel/ bandana had great artwork put into it as well. My only complaint thus far is that the separation insert made it impossible to remove the towel or game without opening the box from the bottom smirk

GameCube games in good condition are hard to come by. I remember when I was cleaning out my GameCube collection of everything not Mario Kart and Zelda(kept those to continue playing on my Wii). The GameStop clerk was all impressed by how good my GameCube discs looked, she said most of the stuff they get in for the system is clearly owned by kids and the disc are in rough shape.

It is a great price. Only games worth it though is Tomb Raider Anniversary and Tomb Raider(2012). All the rest I could do without, but I already own both on my 360 anyway

It's a cute little tower defense game that I haven't gotten into, but my mom and nephew play a lot. I'd say that as long as you realize that the DS version can't be upgraded like the App version (same as the Angry Bird DS games) and that doesn't bother you, go for it. But if you go in expecting new material or a lengthy game experience then skip it. Nutshell: if you're used to the app or want something like the app, no; otherwise since it's cheap, get it.

The DS Plants vs Zombies is the worst version. They didn't really use the touch screen to it's fullest, as it should have been one of the best as far as console versions go.

Thanks for the heads up Cheap One. I've read that elsewhere. The DS version should have been the best, but ended up being the worst.

Not really surprising for a Pop Cap game though, as they usually want people to buy the PC version of their games with the multiple expansion packs. It's kinda like the console Sims games which are never as well integrated as the computer versions.

Turok 1 turned out to be a dud. I couldn't get it to play for the life of me. Upon further inspection, one of the pins looked damaged/missing. I'm a little worried that it may have damaged my 64 too. It was acting a little wonky. I have two, and it seemed to go away after I threw Turok in the trash. I just hope no damage was done. C'est la vie. Looking for recompense, would probably cost more time and money than I spent on it in the first place. I guess I'll just look for another copy one of these days. Maybe at a local used game retailer this time. I need to hit one anyway to have my Wipeout discs resurfaced anyways. Oh... the trials and tribulations of buying used online.

My order arrived today:

Skies of Arcadia was loose in the case. Thankfully, apparently due to a quite thick; it ws devoid of scratches. I've found Gamecube discs to be quite resilient.
Tales Of Symphonia's dual discs were immaculate!
Tales Of Symphonia: Dawn Of The New World has obviously been resurfaced, but it looks playable… probably. I wish that it hadn't been resurfaced. There's a used game retailer near me ('bout an hour away) that does an excellent job resurfacing. Not to mention, they usually do it for free; very professional. I hope that the game functions though, because the more a game is resurfaced; the more likely it is break/malfunction.

Why are you not opening it up at the store. If they give me an open case that isn't factory sealed I am popping it open right in front of them to check out the game and if it is a disc to look at the disc.

That sounds like a horrible GameStop. I personally always check my games before I leave GameStop when I am not buying new. It is just something I do, this is mainly because it is like a 20 minute drive to the closest one I go to often.

GameStop is terrible from personal experience...I haven't bought a game from them in years.

I only use Amazon and Best Buy for buying games nowadays, and if someone gives me a GameStop gift card, I usually just give it as a b-day or x-mas gift to one of the relatives who are still kids.

I hear this a lot on the internet, but to me this has not been the case. I have had way more problems with Best Buy then I have had with GameStop when it comes to buying disc media. Like every single DVD I have bought from Best Buy has been damaged(sometimes even on the replacement one). While at GameStop I have had no problems besides a few disc errors where even after I looked at it I thought it would play.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 01/26/14 10:40 PM

I got two 3DS games recently cause I beat the LEGO games.

Super Mario 3D Land
LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 (got it cheap)

Was going to play in a pre-release tournament for the latest Pokemon TCG set X & Y.
However due to the rather odd weather (it actually snowed & iced) the shipment was delayed.
Might go next week, hopefully the next cold front (due Tuesday) doesn't mess it up. If so I might be totally done with the TCG.
It's just not interesting, and everybody seems more interested in just playing the video game instead of the card game.

BTW today's weather was near the 80s...and less than a week ago it was below 30...with more cold coming.

I order my new games from Best Buy's website, not one of their retail stores (I never buy used/pre-owned games). I prefer buying new games from Amazon more though.

Only exceptions to my "never buy used" rule are if I can't find a game in new condition, or the price for it new is outrageous.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 02/09/14 12:44 AM

Recently bought both LEGO City Undercover The Chase Begins (yes I sold the other copy, but this game is very fun, so why not), and LEGO The Movie Game both for 3DS.

The LEGO Movie game does spoil the movie plot, so be warned.

The levels are similar to the last LEGO game LEGO Marvel Superheroes (3DS version).
In that they are top down with about a 3/4 angle.
However unlike that game there are other level designs like vehicle levels, falling levels, and a sliding level.
Also unlike that game, this game doesn't "punish" the lack of Gold Bricks gathered. In the Marvel game unless you had a certain number of them, you could not proceed with the story.
This game lets you complete the story as long as you finish the level.

It should be noted that between levels the song "Everything is Awesome" is playing, and that song is extremely catchy & easily gets stuck in your head.

For anyone on the fence about getting a PS Vita, they're bringing out the PS Vita Slim this spring which will have a longer battery life and a $199 price tag.

Should be getting my copy of DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc either tomorrow or Wednesday.

I'm just happy it's also getting a U.S. release, was worried for a little while.

I still think $200 is a lil' bit pricy for a handheld though, I'll probably wait until the eventual price drop to $150 New or cheaper.

I would just be happy if they would reduce the cost of the memory cards you have to buy in order to play/save game data. It cost me $80 to get a 32 GB memory card and there are ones that cost upwards of $100 >.<

Hopefully the 32GB memory cards will be super cheap ($30?) by the time the PSVita Slim is $150 New.

(that will be awhile, there prob won't be a price drop for PSVita Slim until 2-3+ years from now maybe)

Those memory cards won't get that cheap, since they are custom made for the Vita. Sony is paying a premium to get those manufactured. It's not like the PSP which used the common Memory Stick.

Personally, I only have an 8GB card for my Vita (which costs $20) and I find that's all I need. I have a subscription to PS Plus, which gives me 1GB of cloud storage and with the PSN download list. I just do a little bit of swapping* to play games on the Vita.

* Copy game save to the cloud, delete game off of the memory card and download new game. If I want to go back to that old game, then I just redownload the game from the download list and redownload the game save from the cloud.

The current models are also at $199 and those contain the superior OLED screen. The slims contain a typical LCD screen, which feels like a downgrade to me.

I personally don't have any issues with the current battery life.

How cheap will the PSVita memory cards get then, $50 New or $60 New maybe? I'm talking about sales prices on Amazon mind you, not the list price/MSRP etc.

8 GB doesn't seem like alot, especially since it looks like there's 10 games I'd want to play on PSVita.

(I can't do the cloud storage thing, even though I can still install game patches/updates and download games from PSN)

Yeah, personally I'm happy with the model I have already. Plus, I only got my Vita this past November so I'm hardly chomping at the bit to get the newest model.
Anyways, picked up my copy of DanganRonpa and bought a copy of Toukiden: The Age of Demons. Will probably wait a while before getting Bravely Default.

I have it, but I won't start it till after the Olympics and maybe even a little later so I can finish Tomb Raider. I played the demo and it was a ton of fun, it plays like 16 bit era Final Fantasy with a twist to the turn based combat.

I recently bought the DMC: Devil May Cry game by Ninja Theory for PS3 and personally I think it kicks ass. It has a very complex combat system which makes it awesome even though the lock on function that was present in the previous Devil May Cry games isn't there. The Dante Must Die difficulty is merely a test for when you're about to take on the game's hardest difficulty, Hell and Hell which was VERY strenuous.
Posted by: EricDent

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 02/16/14 09:45 PM

Ninjachad I am playing Bravely Default.
If you like the various Final Fantasy games combined with an interesting job system and interesting battle system, then you should enjoy Bravely Default.

It does also have a town building sub-game which gets you cool weapons & power-ups.
Of course to use it well you need to do the Street Pass thing.

There's also these SP points that can stop time while fighting a tough monster.
Either you wait a day to get more or you can buy them (for real $).
I don't use them often, since I am on the Easy mode.

Oh, and when you build your town, people can send these "demons" to it.
They don't really do anything (though the people run around) but you can fight them. They are rather tough and most of them you need to be at least level 70 to beat (I have a couple level 99 ones).

You can also update your game via internet, but that also sends you those demons. I did beat one of them but it was only a level 25.
Each of the towns shops can be raised to level 11, and the more people you have the quicker it is to build the stuff.
Most things only take 1-2 hours with about 10 people for me (my shops are Lv 5-6).
So I watch a movie or something to wait.

It's not just Marie Rose (and her costumes). Blazblue: Chrono Phantasma also comes out on Tuesday and there will be some DLC for that game as well. This includes two DLC characters. One which I will get for free from my preorder, while the other I will have to buy.

Then on 4/1, The Pinball Arcade is getting an overhaul on the PS3 (and Vita) and two new tables are releasing. The overhaul (aka Super Patch) will be for free, but the two tables aren't.

She is only available on Ultimate.

If you have a PS3, then you can just download the Free-To-Play version (aka Core Fighters) and buy her that way.

Core Fighters gives you access to all of the game modes (sans Story Mode) and four playable characters. The game also gives you two additional characters which alternate every two weeks.

I forgot how many hours I put into TOS on the GC when I first got it, but it was a lot. I've been playing the PS3 HD version that recently came out, but I've had to put that on hold so I could play other RPGs that I haven't played before.

That's my favorite RPG of all time. I really like the unique combo system they applied to the battles.

Yeah, I did a little digging; and it (combo system) sounds as though it's difficult to master, yet quite integral.

It's not that hard to master, since you just need to get the timing down. Eventually, it becomes like second nature.

That's comforting. I fancy myself as not half bad at such things. I never even had the directions for Super Mario RPG, and I figured out most of the timing on everyone's special moves. Some of thoe weren't just timed button presses, but timed control movements as well. Man… what I wouldn't have done for a guidebook. Not to mention Paper Mario and Final Fantasy VIII. Then again, I was never any good at FFVIII. Onechanbara Bikini Zombie Slayers and Red Steel 2 both integrated timing as a necessary element, and I mastered both of them. I'm pretty excited about Legend Of Dragoon. I read somewhere that the combos increase (in timed hits) slowly as you progress in level.

Do you have all of your "Saved Game Files" saved somewhere like a memeory card or online, so that you can reload them into your next PS3? I had an issue with my Wii once. I had to reformat it because it got corrupted during an online search, so I ended up having to reformat it in the options menu. I had 70% of my game files copied to an SD Card at the time, but about 30% of the Nintendo titles that I own forbid you to copy them to an SD Card, so if the Wii takes a s???; so do those Save files. IIRC Super Smash Brothers Brawl was one 'em. All my achievements! cry I also used to keep sort of a journal in the calendar section, which was lost as well. Said calendar also kept record of daily play times and often would show (record) a cool ending screen shot if you defeated a game… all gone.

Funny that you should mention Super Mario RPG. The director of The Legend of Dragoon (LOD) was one of the developers of Super Mario RPG and that's where the combo system is based off of. One of my friends played LOD with me and he said that it's "similar to Super Mario RPG but better."

Quote:
Man… what I wouldn't have done for a guidebook. Not to mention Paper Mario and Final Fantasy VIII.

I can't help you with guidebooks, but I can help you in finding a "walkthrough". There's a nice site called Game FAQs, which contains several gamer made walkthroughs. They are very detailed, but they are text only. However, they are very useful if you have a tablet/phone. You can play the game on your TV and follow the guide on your tablet/phone.

Quote:

Yes! You actually get a combo list (aka attack list) and you choose the combo/attack that you want to preform. New attacks are added to the list when you progress through the game (via experience). Some of these attacks are harder to execute (very fast paced) compared to others.

For example, you will have about 4 attacks to choose from within the first couple of hours of the game. One of those attacks may be a 5-hit combo, while another will be a 4-hit. The 5-hit combo attack will be harder to execute compared to the 4-hit combo attack. Depending on how good you are with pacing, you may want to choose the 4-hit attack over the 5-hit attack.

Oh I don't go there regularly, I don't post anywhere but Anime Today. I simply get their via websearch when I'm playing a game that I totally stumped on, or that I don't have a guide for. I try to use it only as a last resort. Cheating is for cheating cheaters. Although, being somewhat of a retro gamer, I've been finding their services to particularly useful. For example, I printed up their section on EX Skills from Tales Of Symphonia. I didn't totally need it, but it has saved me much precious Grade. GameFaqs aside, I once found fully printable game guide for OneChanbara Bikini Zombie Slayers. I haven't really seen anything like it since, so I'm thankful that I printed it out. I even put each page in a plastic binder sleeve, and put the whole works in a binder. It looks pretty cool.

Yes! GameFAQs first started off as the ultimate destination for codes and guides/walkthroughs.

Just search for your favorite game and the first two links for that game will be "FAQs" (this is where their guides are stored) and "Cheats".

I never visit the GameFAQs forums. I only go there for the guides and cheats.

I visit the GameFAQs forums, they are just like any forum online. You have bad users of course but you can't let that stop you.

Yea,GameFAQs is a great place to learn how to cheat. Also a great place to get more out your game like I was able to get a program that let me take the pictures out of DOA5/DOA5U's photo mode which makes them look better then the built in post to Facebook feature.

I think you mean Chrono Trigger (I have the DS version and the PS1 version - which came with one of the Final Fantasy games-- can't remember which one). Although Chrono Crusade was an awesome anime smile

It was part of Final Fantasy Chronicles collection. Although, technically Chrono Trigger is not part of the Final Fantasy series. What happened was when the Final Fantasy Anthology collection (contains Final Fantasy 4-6) released out in the US, FF4 was omitted from the release for some reason. Top it off, Chrono Trigger re-released on PS1 in Japan and Europe, but they decided to not release it in the US. After a lot of fan backlash and several boycotts later, Square caved and released the two games as a collection in the US.

From what I remember, Chrono Trigger was a collaboration between the creators of Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest plus Akira Toriyama. That's probably where people came up with the idea that Trigger was originally supposed to be a FF or in some cases DQ game even if it wasn't true.

Parasite Eve is just such an amazing game. I don't know exactly why, but that game spoke to my soul. Everything about it; Aya Brea, the hard boiled cop show vibe, the Mitochondria Eve plotline, the gruesome cutscenes, the awesome weapon management system coupled with Aya's bizarre story related powers, the eerie feel of some the missions, the unique combat system, the music… everything! I even have the strategy guide for that little gem.

You're really going to hate me for this. I still have the disc copies of the two games and I got both of them for a good deal back in the day. I bought the first one at Kaybee Toys (Greatest Hits version) on sale for only $15 and about two weeks later, I snagged the second game (with game guide) for only $12.99 at Sam's Club. It was a cool bundle deal and they were getting rid of the last copy they had at a ridiculous cheap price. I couldn't resist!

One thing that I'm really tempted in doing is buy the third game (The 3rd Birthday) that released on the PSP. The game is PS Vita compatible and goes for $20 on the PSN Store.

Nice score joelgundam01. I've got the Greatest Hits edition of Parasite Eve, and the regular edition of Parasite Eve II; both are 2 disc. I never had much luck with Parasite Eve II. That's awesome that you can get Parasite Eve 3! I'd say go for it. I'd love to hear of your exploits once you do. I really wish I had the game guide for Parasite Eve II. I think that it might help me get into it. The game guide for the first Parasite Eve was indispensable. There are affordable copies of the Parasite Eve II game guide on Amazon, but only from private sellers. I've had really bad luck with anything that wasn't either directly from Amazon or listed as "Fulfillment By Amazon". I don't know… maybe I should try my luck.

Keep an eye on their negative feedback. Look at the feedback percentage and take a look at the negative comments. You can learn a lot about the seller from them.

That's because the live action movie is based off of the novel (released up here by Vertical). The games are a "detached sequel" to it.

I took your advice, and did a lot of customer feedback reading. In addition to finding a Parasite Eve II game guide that I feel comfortable ordering; I also ordered a game guide for The Legend Of Dragoon, which I recently acquired at a Half Price Books in "Like New" condition for a song. I also ordered a game guide for Disgaea DS that I've been looking at. It covers all three versions of the game, but I think that I may need the help; so I went for it. Lastly, I finally cowboyed up and ordered a copy of Robotech: Battlecry for the Gamecube. In that instance alone, searching out an apparently reliable seller; instead of going for the "Fulfillment By Amazon" only method, saved me about 32 bucks! Wish me luck with my haul joelgundam01, and thanks again for the advice. (fingers crossed)

One thing I like about feedback is that it can't be retracted. Once someone makes a negative post it's branded onto the seller for life. The seller can respond to it, such as "problem resolved via email". However, you can still look at the history of that complaint.

This has worked wonders for me on getting OOP anime discs. It just takes one negative post that says "bootleg" for me to stay clear from that seller. ^^

I just got done reading a pile of reviews for Legend Of Dragoon. I found a veritable treasure trove of 'em at "epinions". Talk about serendipity. Who woulda thought? There musta been nearly 150 reviews for Legend Of Dragoon alone, and many were excellent and unbiased. Irregardless, I would like to thank you again for your earlier advice. I'm glad I went for it and ordered the Parasite II Strategy Guide at your behest, for it lead me to also order the Legend Of Dragoon Strategy Guide; which I think that I'm going to be quite thankful for, once I get around to playing the game. From what I gather, LOD appears to meld FFVII and Super Mario RPG. The timed combo system might warrant the guide's assistance, is what I mean to say.

Thanks again joelgundam01. You were right. I got my copy of The Legend Of Dragoon Strategy Guide, and it's in "Very Good" condition. It's been lightly used, but there are no markings, scratches, stickers, or tears; and the spine's still in good shape. Yay me!

One thing I like about feedback is that it can't be retracted. Once someone makes a negative post it's branded onto the seller for life. The seller can respond to it, such as "problem resolved via email". However, you can still look at the history of that complaint.

This has worked wonders for me on getting OOP anime discs. It just takes one negative post that says "bootleg" for me to stay clear from that seller. ^^

My copies of the Parasite Eve II Strategy Guide and the Disgaea Strategy Guide have arrived. The Parasite Eve II guide is also in "very Good" condition, and the best part is; it's from Brady Games, which also made the strategy guide for the first Parasite Eve. I have that guide as well, so it's like a match set! My OCD feels gooood. The Digaea guide which is the Double Jump Books edition that covers the DS, PS2, and PSP versions of the game, is the only one that had any issues. The funny thing is, it was the only one listed as "New". It looks to me as though it had been shipped and opened before. There's a 2" razor cut on the middle of the cover. I assume someone was overzealous/careless in opening their shipment. The cut can be clearly seen on the inside front cover, but I don't think that it's 100% through; and the first page is untouched. In the end; still an excellent find, and I'm gonna need it. Disgaea is haaard! Thanks again for the impetus joelgundam01. These guides will give me a much richer gaming experience.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 06/06/14 05:56 AM

Nice!
Never really been a fan of flight/shooters, but it looked cool.

So we had a deal this week on a PS3.
After mulling it over for a bit, I decided to just go for it.
About $200 for a refurbished (by Sony) 500 gb PS3, free Minecraft game & a HDMI cable.

Also used a bunch of GameStop points (like 16,000) for a $20 off a used game coupon. Got LEGO Marvel Superheroes and boy is it HUGE...

Probably gonna take advantage of the special LEGO day this Saturday & get the LEGO Movie game (or maybe LEGO The Hobbit) for PS3.
They are doing $10 off LEGO games & 30% Trade in bonus when trading for a LEGO game.

Most likely gonna add Katamari Forever to the library soon as well.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 06/07/14 01:44 PM

So I took advantage of that deal above.
Traded in 3DS games (Fire Emblem, LEGO The Hobbit, LEGO Pirates of the Carribean, and LEGO Lord of the Rings) and got The LEGO Movie Game for PS3.
Only cost $1.07 for that game after the $10 off & trade in bonus.
Got a LEGO Mini-Figure of Emmet (Western look).

Bad choice! You should of went after Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge, which is pretty much a Directors Cut. The regular version is pretty gimped with the violence toned down and several levels missing.

I purposely bought the original version for collection purposes, and also to see the differences between the two versions in person myself.

I still need to grab Razor's Edge too, but I won't be worrying about that until 2015.

I've still got plenty of 2012 PS3 games left that will suck my wallet dry well into 2015...unless I get a job or social security soon, then maybe I'd buy Razor's Edge before 2015 lol.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 06/10/14 10:53 PM

I discovered a great little brick & mortar 'bout an hour away from where I live. I made out like a bandit on used stuff in great shape:

Secret Of Mana (SNES)
Illusion Of Gaia (SNES)
Final Fantasy Tactics Greatest Hits (PS)
Metroid Classics Collection (GBA)
Super Mario Advance 2 (GBA)
Castlevania Adventure (GB)
Castlevania Legends (GB)

Final Fantasy Anthology Strategy Guide

The Crow Collector's Series Ultimate Collection (DVD)

I believe that the Secret Of Mana is actually the second Final Fantasy in the Japanese Chronology, after Mystic Quest; which is also for the Super Nintendo, and also resides on my shelf. The Anthology game guide was a nice find for me too. I'm pretty sure that it's the only way to get a guide for FFVI. It was pretty cool. I was shootin' the s??? with the cashier, and apparently helped to convince a customer to buy a new game, so he thanked me by giving me Metroid for free; and the Final Fantasy strategy guide for half off. The only item that wasn't in "Very Good" to "Like New" condition was The Crow set. The outer cardboard case that house the three separate DVD cases has some wear. No biggie. The first movie has some disc wear, but I have another copy of that; so also no biggie.

I also picked up a couple of used systems in excellent condition from Half Price Books of all places:

Platinum Gamecube
PS One

The only bad luck I've had recently was at a (different) used retailer. I was elated to find a near mint Super Nintendo system. When I got it home, I discovered that the AC port on the back had been tampered with; and looked like nothing short of a fire hazard. I won't be able to return there anytime soon, so no refund for kiku. C`est la vie. Despite said bad luck, I'm quite happy about rounding out my Final Fantasy Collection. My collection thus far:

Final Fantasy Mystic Quest (SNES) "Final Fantasy I in Japan?"
Secret Of Mana (SNES) "Final Fantasy II in Japan?"
Sword Of Mana (GBA)
Final Fantasy (NES+GBA+PS)
Final Fantasy II (GBA+PS) "Not originally released stateside."
FInal Fantasy III (DS) "Not originally released stateside."
Final Fantasy IV (GBA+DS+PS) "Originally released as Final Fantasy II stateside."
Final Fantasy V (GBA+PS)
Final Fantasy VI (GBA+PS) "Originally released as Final Fantasy III stateside."
Final Fantasy VII (PS)
Final Fantasy VIII (PS)
Final Fantasy IV (PS)
Final Fantasy: 4 Heroes Of Light (DS)
Final Fantasy Tactics (PS)
Chrono Trigger (DS+PS)
Chrono Cross (PS)

Yes; there is much debate as to what is canon Final Fantasy, and what is not. On a side note, Castlevania Legends has been touted as not canon to the series. It does however feature Sonia Belmont; not only the first in the line of the Belmont family, but the only female vampire hunter in the series… Charlotte Aulin and Shanoa withstanding, of course; them being more spellcaster than vampire slayer… and not Belmonts.

This Wiki article states that it was released in North America as Final Fantasy Adventure… as stated above, there is much debate to be had regarding this topic. I believe it was originally released in Japan as Seiken Densetsu, which translates to Legend Of The Sacred Sword 2 if I'm not mistaken. I believe that it is the sequel to Final Fantasy Mystic Quest; which is the original Seiken Densetsu in Japan. Once again, room for debate.

Very possible! Time Crisis originated from the arcades. It's an on-rails shooter (aka light gun game) with a few unique mechanics. The console versions are just as solid, since Namco made a special light gun (Gun-Con) for it.

Oh… sweet nostalgia. Thank you for confirming that my mind isn't totally defunct from years of abuse. The arcade that I played it in was in a large mall about an hour from where I live. Arcades are awesome! There's just that little je ne sais quoi about playing a large game in an arcade, with all kinds of people milling about, and bells and whistles going off and lights flashing everywhere. I suddenly want to play the crane game… and whack a mole.

I played several games in the series on the arcade machines. As a matter of fact the movie theater I usually went to until they got ride of the machines had 4 for longest time. I been on a kick of getting retro stuff really since MAGFest last year. When I started realizing I should go back and some fun older games I missed. Or even ones I use to own and for whatever reason I no longer own. I still had a ps2 that worked and played ps1 games. I replaced my broken dreamcast. I found a pretty good sega saturn that would replace the one broken but didn't have the money for it. I was finally able to get the piece stuck and broken on n64 lose and now that totally working. I think twitch has played a part in that too watching retro games seeing awesome stuff I missed over the years. Oh yeah the system I still have most games for is a retro system. For Sega Genesis which I still have my old console and it works.
Just for fun to pass all games I own: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jJ0piTTp6AIZ4oeb7nIT0esBYWY_sK_TDfbZKX2nJyc/edit#gid=0

Danger girl was okay. Was based on the comic book of the same. Never got far and never got back to it. Turok Evolution I don't remember. Good idea is just start a list and then eventually add stuff over time. Don't have to do it all at once.

I used to play the Jyhad/V:TES CCG.
I heard about some live action Vampire thing back in Atlanta, but I never went.

I recently got LEGO The Hobbit since the price dropped to $29.99 IIRC.
This is the PS3 version and it took a while to beat.
Apparently the 3rd movie will be DLC, hopefully I can just download it from a computer. Since I don't have internet (besides phone which is now unlimited data).

I got rid of Minecraft cause of that issue.

I also got Sly Cooper Thieves In Time.
Boy did they seriously "sexy" up Carmalita Fox...

Yeah, come to think of it; that role playing system was divided between like three or four source books. There was also Werewolf: The Apocalypse and Mage: The Ascension.

Nope, but that's because I don't have a PC capable of playing games. I only have an ancient Dell Dimension 2350 from 2002, with Intel P4 2.20 GHz CPU, 256 MB RAM, and no real graphics/video card (just a 64 MB Intel Onboard Driver).

This was a nice pack. I was hopeful that Team NINJA would give Marie Rose a pj outfit like Miu from Papakiki. But the one she did get was nice so I am okay with that not happening.

So, I tried to install The Witcher on my Mac; and it tried to crash it. It was weird. It was telling me to install Windows XP, despite being clearly labeled "for Mac" on the box. Then when I did start "opening" it, as it were; it took over an hour. Which is weird, because nothing ever takes that long to load on my computer. I have other Mac games on it already, like Borderlands GOTY Edition. Anyhow, when it finished loading; I remember this flash and a little window popped up and asked if I would like to load Wineskin or somesuch, and then immediate darkness. There was a black scrren with an arrow… and that's it. No menus, no response; I couldn't even restart or shut my computer down. It was weird. I ended up unplugging it. This fixed it. I have subsequently thrown the physical copy of The Witcher in the trash, and deleted it from my computer; which took about an hour and a half. Oh well, $7.99 down the tubes. C`est la vie.

Sadly I can't do that as I had DOA5 & DOA5U on my Xbox360. I hope Team NINJA does the fighter bundles for DOA5LR like they did at the DOA5U release. That way I can at least get Hitomi & Kokoro's DLC costumes right off the back. Then work on the others I use like Bayman and Marie Rose at pauses in DOA5LR's DLC.

Outside of Team NINJA games I don't really buy DLC. Plus the DLC helps keep a fighting game like DOA interesting. I could never go back to the old days of unlocking costumes and that being it.

Re: What video game did you just buy? - 09/05/14 09:28 AM

True, I like a game where they split it like right now I'm playing gundam reborn. I got all of the DLC which gave me some more gundams, but still you have to unlock some of them that is great in my book.

Same here! Plus, the DLC helps keep the servers running. DOA5U has some of the most stable servers around for online multiplayer. Keeping the servers well maintained is not cheap. Chatting with a buddy of mine who works at Sony, they could be paying up to $500,000 a month to keep them running.

Besides DOA5, the only other DLC I buy is for Zen Pinball 2 and The Pinball Arcade. Otherwise, it's rare for me to buy DLC.

One leader from Samurai Warriors and a Pokémon.

They can swap out and grow them, but you go around basically playing 3d pokemon Risk to be Oda Nobunaga and his generals till they come to your side.

For me, it's part nostalgia (same look and feel as DOA2) and to get the rest of the story. With DOA 3 and 4 being exclusive to the Xbox and Xbox 360, I've never played those two games and I'm missing quite a bit of the story.

Legend Of Mana (PS1)
Legend Of Mana Strategy Guide
Heroes Of Mana (DS)
Heroes Of Mana Strategy Guide
Chrono Trigger (SNES)
Sword Of Mana Strategy Guide


I believe that I have every Final Fantasy title up through IX on the Nintendo Systems and the PS1; including those from the "Chrono", "Mana", and "Tactics" series. I believe that I also have guides for all the titles that are available, with the exception of any of the titles from the NES, SNES, and Gameboy. Those are exceedingly expensive, and outside of my reasonable price range; not to mention, probably unnecessary; considering the more simplistic nature of those older titles and the volatile nature of their save batteries.

The Final Fantasy titles that I have avoided thus far are the "Final Fantasy Legend" series (I, II, & III), which is actually part of the "SaGa" series, said "SaGa Frontier" series (1 & 2), and the "Final Fantasy Crystal" series (Chronicles, Ring, & Bearers). If anyone feels that any of those games deserve recognition, please tell me about 'em.

My (used) Sword Of Mana Strategy Guide came in, and it was in excellent condition! I've seen new strategy guides at stores in worse shape than this. It's especially cool because it's the Official Nintendo Strategy Guide. I was so stoked that I started playing right away. It's a really cool game. I'm playing as the "Heroine" If anybody has played and has any pointers, I'd love to hear 'em.

That's Nintendo for you. They never reduce their game prices and they like to create artificial demand to boost digital sales by discontinuing the physical release prematurely.

Case and point: I bought a 3DS a couple months ago and I'm looking into buying Star Fox 64 3D for the system. The game released out 2 years ago (not a single price drop) and it has been out of print for almost a year now. I currently only have three options.

1.) Buy a physical copy used at a decent price (around $25).
2.) Buy a physical copy new at an astounding price ($75+ from scalpers).
3.) Buy a digital copy at the eShop at the regular MSRP ($40).

Option 1 is obviously the cheapest, but options 2 and 3 give you points toward Club Nintendo, which you can get some exclusive DLC and swag.

That's Nintendo for you. They never reduce their game prices and they like to create artificial demand to boost digital sales by discontinuing the physical release prematurely.


So my only new option for older games and cheaper deals is to go digital?

I'd rather buy a physical copy used, I have my reasons for disliking digital games.

Pretty much, but they always been like this even in the past.

I still remember the N64 days, where games were costing me $70-$80 a pop (expensive cartridges) and they rarely ever dropped the price. They only re-released a few of their games under the "Players' Choice" label for $40-$50, but that was only after several years of the game being out in the market. They only did that program, because Sony was killing them with the $20 Greatest Hits program on the original PlayStation.

My brother doesn't want his PS4 so he's selling it to me for $200! Practically brand new, he only played it something like 3 hours total. So while I was out black Friday shopping...

Lego Marvel - Looked soooo fun on the IGN review, you can play as apparently 75 characters in the MU.

Evil Within - Resident Evil 4 is my favorite horror game of all time, so the fact that this was made by the same creator, and the universal acclaim, sold me.

Alien Isolation - I'm a HUGE Alien fan, the first 2 are two of my favorite films ever made, so I'm stoked to play a game with the name atmosphere of the original film. Plus it has the entire original movie cast reprising their roles.

Tales of Xillia 2 - Loved the first game, so can't wait until I play this one. Ordered it from Gamestop's website during their Black Friday sale, so hopefully it'll arrive sometime next week.

Congrats on the pre-order friend. I plan to ask one of my two aunts to buy that for me, while the other one should be getting me Tales of Symphonia Chronicles.

You're so lucky, I wish I could find a $200 used like new offer, I'd buy it in a heart beat.
