2521  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Irony: Israel turns away Darfur refugees on: August 19, 2007, 11:31:24 PM
I am not sure we can talk too much shit as Americans seeing that out government is doing it's best to ignore Darfur.

It does seem a bit odd that the Israelis would reject them, but it is against their laws. I can kind of see why they wouldn't want muslims in the country.

5 hours into it, and I haven't had the need to grind. A couple of battles were tough, but everything has been winnable so far. The game could use some random battles (the inbetween battles are the same everytime you enter them).

Really? I'd swear that the one I reentered at least had different starting positions. It was the spot North of Carwee Town.

Hmm, I only entered 2 or so, and they looked the exactly the same to me. Will have to look into some more of them.

I started last night. Still not sure what to think of it. Seems like a more in depth Animal Crossing so far, but it hasn't really grabbed me. I just planted some crops and wandered the city a bit. looks like there is going to be a lot to do, but at this point I am struggleing with the interface. Character models kind of suck, but all the backgrounds looks great. Music is decent, I haven't turned it off yet at least.

I don't run my network in WEP, so I can't post a code. All the DS games I have been playing, maybe I should switch it back.

Yeah, my biggest gripe is that you can't just move a cursor around the screen to examine units as far as I can tell.
For instance, it'd be nice if I could hop around between characters to see how much xp they currently have, so
I can decide if I want someone else to finish off a character for the xp bonus.

You can, once a character starts a turn press B, then you can move the cursor around. You do have to press A on a friend or enemy to see their stats though. It will show their stats and highlight their move distance on the map.

Put it in a couple hours today. Some random thoughts.

* The cut scenes drag on a little long. There is a lot of chatter going on and while I am enjoying the story, sometimes I just want to fight.
* Very linear. Couple random battles, next story battle, repeat. So far no decisions to make.
* Can be a bit hard to see who is where when everyone is clumped up, would help if you could rotate the map.
* I went with the stylus-less controls and they are pretty solid.

Enjoying the game, but it's not anything special.

Oh boy, I finally played the demo last night and I was disgusted by the frame-rate. As much as I want to support the game, I'm skipping it. I simply can't stand slowdown in my games, especially if it is going to be so commonplace.

Really? I barely noticed it. I mean I did notice it, but it didn't bug me enough to want to skip the game.
2531  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Luminous Arc Impressions on: August 17, 2007, 07:08:12 AM
One thing that does bug me. On the world map, I can use the buttons fine. Once I get into battle it's stylus only, which is a bit clunky in areas. I believe you can change it to buttons only, but I like to mix it up, I don't want to be limited to one control method.

it doesn't necessarily mean 'fuck off' in a negative tone.  Ie, positive 'Hey Calvin,  finger' or negative 'ATB?  finger'.  I do agree Zeke should have kept his gripes to PM's though.

No, I am pretty sure in the above context it meant fuck off. Obviously me and Zeke aren't friends.

It's an online Formula 1 turn based game where you have partners. But again, can we talk about LA here, use the other wasted thread.

2541  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Luminous Arc Impressions on: August 17, 2007, 06:14:50 AM
Very limited impressions, but something none the less.

The reviews I have read on Game Rankings are pretty much spot on, although so far it seems to be better than a 69%. Most reviews say its a good game, it's just that it could be better. So far it's just another tactics RPG, nothing new or ground breaking. Graphics are great, not too cartoony and not everyone is a kid which is a nice change. Maps look good. Sound is good, it's odd hearing voice acting on the DS. Opening song is in Japanese, but everything else is in English. Acting is mediocre, not bad, but not great either. It works ok. Sometimes there is voice acting, and sometimes there isn't, you never really know when it will kick in.

Gameplay is typical. Turn order decided by the characters move skill, and then modified by what they did last turn. Move and attack last turn and you go last, anything less and you will go sooner, especially if you wait. Terrain helps, back stabbing helps, your characters have different special abilities, etc. Game play is not really anything new.

So far it seems if you like the genera, its a must get. If you are burnt out on the gameplay, don't bother.

It wasn't fun for me after the patch and then throw in bad partners (not you) I just got to the point where I was done. I signed up for that private game while I was still experimenting with the game, but it took so long to start.

But for those needing a solid traditional role-playing experience on Xbox 360, Blue Dragon will fit the bill.

Anyway, it's getting an 82% on Game Rankings, I have played some games I had a lot of fun with that scored lower than that.

No TRU for me either, and I have it preorderd from Liongames for dirt cheap, so getting it early means making a second long trip back to TRU to return it when the cheap copy comes in. 

I was in Gamestop a few minutes ago, and they have them, but won't sell until next Tuesday.  Seems like it's just TRU breaking street date at this point rather than an industry-wide launch like some places are reporting.

And you know the damn Gamestop employees are taking copies home and playing them too. Bastards!

Talked to Gamestop, local and corporate.  Both are 'gathering more information' to see if they will break the date.  As it stands, their talking point is "TRU only got a few copies so it won't affect our sales in any way.  We are holding to our street date for now."  The 'gathering' and 'for now' suggests we might see differently very soon, but when I called TRU (a few here in AZ) they were RUUUUUUDE rude rude rude about telling me that "No - nobody is selling them.  Whatever you heard, you were mistaken."  I explained the pictures and gamertags and they told me that I'm just "completely wrong".  Wow...bad day?

Have you seen the people who were at TRU? It's worse than Walmart. biggrin

Buckeye- You may want to rename your thread Bioshock: Impressions so that it becomes the 'official thread' of the console forum for it. 

I would say make this thread the "I got it thead" so people can post where they got it since everyone here seems to be trying to figure who is breaking street. Leave the impressions for an impression thread. I think I just about always disagree with ATB. icon_cry

May look in Target and CC tonight. Don't have a TRU close.

How does one go about doing the 15x15 puzzles?  I can't seem to find a way to get those large ones started.

Look for lines that add up to 15 first (like: 4-5-2-1). If none of those, then look for a line that has just one sequence of blocks that fills over half the line. Like if there is one line that only has 13 straight bricks, you can figure out a good portion of the line. That should help you get started.
