Re: Random Gaming Thoughts (Read OP Before Posting)

If you ever need to download something from the US PSN store, make a second account with a fake US address.

Using this game as an example, you would need to log in to your US account and redeem all DLC vouchers for the game and install everything. Then when you log out and switch to you UK account you will have access to everything that is currently on your system. It doesn't matter where it comes from, once its there all accounts on the system can use it. This works 100% percent of the time with DLC, and most of the times with games. There are very few where it doesn't, like Final Fight from the PSN store. That one is locked down for some reason. That's how people game share. I had to use my UK account to redeem the armor DLC for MGR when it came out. I know it sucks having to go through all those steps, but at least this way you can access everything you pay for without worrying about region locks. I have several games from both UK/JP PSN store that I play and earn trophies with on my US account.

Re: Random Gaming Thoughts (Read OP Before Posting)

I didn't even notice it was limited to 5000. Glad I ordered mine already then.

Didn't they get a larger soundtrack and we got stuck with a 10 song sample? Not sure if that is true or not, but I remember reading that as well. Mine just got here, haven't opened it yet. Either way it was only $10 more than the regular edition, so was pointless not to get it. The box is freaking awesome

EDIT: if you pay with pay pal yeah you pay the whole thing up front. If you pay with credit they do a pre authorization charge that goes away after a few days, just to make sure the card is real/the funds are there. The charge has already been removed from my account

Re: Recent Gaming Purchases

Hahaha. Yeah I think I said the same thing on here back when it came out, and opted for the standard. As dumb as it sounds I couldn't stop thinking about it when I played the game. So as soon as I got handed free money I bought. I figured it would be the only special release of an AC game we ever saw here in the states. I don't remember it being limited to 250 though, the Namco page says nothing about it. I think they only did that after so few people pre ordered it.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Change the controls to "manual" and then you will use A to attack and B to defend. Right now it's set for the computer to attack for you, not sure why the game defaults to that, takes the fun out of it. Its still not a super deep combat system, but far more enjoyable that spamming auto battle over and over lol. I love XIII don't get me wrong, the paradigm system was great, but the actual battles weren't fun to me though. Even manually selecting my abilities felt pointless knowing I could just hit auto battle and basically win everything, switching to medic roles when needed. I eventually spent most of my time in battle trying to keep the enemies juggled in the air as long as I could.

edit: i hope my lighting returns comes in soon. Everyone I know has gotten theirs, the tracking on mine hasn't been updated since the 12th.

Re: Atelier Escha & Logy (Great Game!!)

dont distract OL from the greatness that is Tales of Xillia, hes finally playing it! Now if we can just get him to go through Xenoblade (which I believe he bought but hasnt played)

That is a crime sir! How could you own it but not have played it OL! lol But yeah I was glad to see ya playing Xillia as well.

A coworker gifted me The Alchemist of Arland back when we worked at Gamestop together. I honestly tried my hardest to play through it since she spent money on it, but it just wasn't for me. I put about 20 hours or so into it and just couldn't do it. Then I borrowed Meruru (I think) from her and felt the same way about it. This one does look a little more interesting but there's too many releases the next few months. It's great to see they are still releasing these over here for fans of the series tho, since I doubt they do that well.

Yeah I was under the impression it sold great. Most people I know bought it. I just think it could of been handled differently is all. It seems he talked to 2K, and went his own route instead of thinking about his employees. I'm sure 2K would of had no problem with letting him start a smaller studio, and letting someone else take the reins of Irrational. Hopefully the displaced workers find jobs, or band together to make Rational studios. I really did enjoy their work. Too many good developers have been closing their doors as of late.

May follow this up with Tales of Graces F. Either that or Ni No Kuni. Or Resonance of Fate.


Ahh, speak no more. I fully understand lol I've been turned off from entire series because of people in the past. Part of the reason I've played Digital Devil Saga 1+2 and Devil Summoner 1+2, but ignored the Persona games for so long.

You know I'm a huge Tales fan, but I recommend you play Ni No Kuni or RoF next (or something else). Graces F is a good game, but there's a 50/50 chance it will ruin you're JRPG mood. It's one of those games you either love or hate.

Just got a 3 month ps+ subscription.
I need to renew, I've been missing out on a ton of games lately.

Got my CE in today. Namco went all out. This is hands down the best collector's edition I've ever had/seen. Sorry for the bad picture, only posting it to show how cool it was they sent it in its own plastic display case, instead of just shrink wrapping the box (which they did as well). Zero chance of messing up the gorgeous art on the box. As a huge Tales of fan, I cannot stop smiling right now.

Re: Recent Gaming Purchases

Between the Ni No Kuni one, Verdict Day, Xillia and now Symphonia, Namco has put out some great sets over the past year or two. I'm positive Xillia 2 will get one, most likely with some kind of watch/clock. Even if its just scalpers (those bastards) buying them up for resale, money is money to Namco so we should keep getting them if they keep selling like they are.

I don't know if anyone here plays/played Diablo 3 on PC, but the new update fixes pretty much everything that was wrong with it, making it more like its predecessor. The auction house has been removed, legendary drops now coincide with the class you are playing (I no longer find Monk specific weapons imbued with useless stats that are only relevant to the Wizard lol), and they have totally revamped the ability trees, making each class serve its intended purpose. Had so much fun playing it last night, can't wait for the new expansion later this month.

I think Digital River struck again. I ordered my FFX HD CE Back in December just days after they were put up for ordering. I got an email this morning saying they are on back order and do not have one to ship me at this time, and one will be sent when they have more stock. But they sure as hell charged my card already. My friend placed his order last week and got a shipping confirmation this morning... go figure. I hope I get my game, if not this will be the last time I mess with Digital River, even if it means missing out on certain titles. I just hope this doesn't happen with Drakengard 3 I preordered the DAY it was available lol. I will be extremely unhappy if that happens.

Got this in a few days ago. Ordered last summer but it got delayed twice. My arcade stick is out of commission and I'm having to use a controller lol so I've only seen the first 4 stages. Just ordered a replacement Sanwa so I'll have it fixed soon. Game play is smooth and the sprites are crisp and vibrant. Has a more laid back old school feel than Fast Striker did, which was relentless from start to finish. All of NG:Dev.Team's titles are well made, this makes their fourth on DC so far :D

Re: Xbox One


As for "focus should be on the games rather than the tech"... that makes zero sense from a technical perspective.

So, if your job is to sell a new console, what are you gonna do? "Well, we sell a console that plays the exact same games as that other one, except for X Y & Z... they're awesome, check em out!"

No, that's retarded.

But there are two different perspectives to consider. I know everyone is different, but that is exactly what sells me on a console. Exclusives I can't get anywhere else. If I want cutting edge tech I go to my PC that's been doing everything these new consoles can, and has been for years. That's why I loved the original Xbox. Games like Otogi 1+2, GunValkyrie, JSRF, Panzer Dragoon Orta, KoToR 1+2 (also on PC but exclusives console wise), Steel Battalion, Phantom Dust, Kingdom Under Fire: Crusaders and the list goes on and on. But the 360? Hated it, hardware failures aside, I had Tales of Vesperia... nothing else I even remotely cared about. I had the better version of Star Ocean 4 on PS3. Fable 3/ME1 played/looked better on PC, it becomes a broken record after that lol. Without good exclusives, why even consider a weaker machine? If they play the same games that is. There are soooo many people that buy consoles based purely on the games. Those are the people who could care less about 720 vs 1080, 30fps vs 60fps. If the game is good they'll buy it. I know the tech matters to a lot of people, and it should to a certain degree, but that doesn't mean they should concentrate any less on developing/publishing exclusives that could sway people to their console over another. On that note, the list Henry posted of possible support the X1 is getting when it launches in Japan totally shows they care equally about the games this time around. I'm interested to see what titles show up on it now. First bit of interest I've had in the X1 since it was announced. Not saying features and tech aren't important, but games should always be the number one priority for a console.

You can beat the first one in about a day. It's less than 10 hours long if I remember correctly. I know you know the new one is a prequel so it won't matter that much, but beating the first game will make you appreciate the new one more. Seeing how far they have (hopefully) evolved.

No way dude lol, the 1998 film was utter trash from beginning to end. Godzilla (2014) is a love to letter to everyone who grew up watching Godzilla, Gamera, Daimajin, etc. There are so many easter eggs and references to them that it blew my mind. The people behind this film knew the source material and did is justice. The only real low part was the acting done by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, it was really really bad, but these movies were never about trying to win an Oscar for a screen play or performance.

Re: Random Gaming Thoughts (Read OP Before Posting)

Cool thing is it doesn't require steam or origin, so even if you buy the used one it should work. I buy physical if they don't require a third party launcher like Steam or Origin (Dragon Age: Origins, Witcher 2, Oblivion, STALKER). But I don't usually buy games based on worth. You have to remember, console games weren't worth the prices they are now just a few years ago, with the exception of a few really rare titles. Prices didn't shoot through the roof until the past couple years due to the whole retro bandwagon everyone jumped on lately. In 2011 I bought a second copy of Chrono Trigger for my brother since he always borrowed mine, for $65 bucks plus shipping on eBay. Box manual and everything. Nowadays just the cart alone goes for that much if not more. It's ridiculous how the prices have been driven up due to these so called collectors that don't even play the damn things.

Re: Akira

It was a heavy influence on him as far as there being a princess saved whose home is gone and the companions, but he's even said he exaggerated it in the past. I love the Hidden Fortress, one of Kurosawa's most enjoyable movies. But Star Wars isn't a western version of it by any means. I tried finding a video of one of the special features interviews but could only find this.

“I remember the one thing that really struck me about The Hidden Fortress,” he said, “the one thing I was really intrigued by, was the fact that the story was told from the two lowest characters. I decided that would be a nice way to tell the Star Wars story. Take the two lowliest characters, as Kurosawa did, and tell the story from their point of view. Which, in the Star Wars case is the two droids, and that was the strongest influence. The fact that there was a princess trying to get through enemy lines was more of a coincidence than anything else. In my film, the princess is more of a stand-and-fight kind of princess. In the beginning, in one of the first drafts, I did have a little bit more of her and a Jedi, an older Jedi, trying to escape, but then it evolved into the story of Luke.”

The actual filming of it is where the two seem more akin, from the angles of each shot to the way he transitions between them. I think he captured the feel of the movie more so than anything. Its really awesome to watch The Hidden Fortress then episode IV back to back, you can notice a ton of it that way. There was one shootout scene my grandpa used to tell me "They took that straight out of (some old western)" but I can't remember what it was. He showed it to me once and it was almost identical.
