Star Ocean: The Last Hope. It has nice old school RPG charm, but modernized.

Tried it, thought it was very 'meh'.   Typical tri-Ace game with a decent combat system, but boring as hell story and characters.

Tales of Vesperia, on the other hand, I quite enjoyed

How far did you play into it? I don't find the story to be boring at all.

Just watched this past week's 2 hours.  

As much as I've made fun of the show this season.  That was as good as 24 has been since season two IMHO.  



I'm hoping they saw all the criticism and adjusted accordingly, I don't know how far they shoot in advance though.

Production was actually halted for a bit after the season started because of an injury to Keifer, so I'm guessing they had some time to change at least some of the last couple of episodes.

I had to turn down the difficulty to easy on the boss fight to save Saki which annoys me.  I am not a great fighting game player but really the engine isn't that great.  I knew that in the second phase the enemy was in heat mode all the time, so I knew after I punched twice he would counter and beat me so I tried to block right away after two hits.  It never ever worked.  The engine just doesn't work slick enough to do it.  It is fine to make a fighting game mechanic but it should be good! 

Anyway I was able to beat him on easy so I can keep going but I wish the combat engine was a bit better. 



I beat that guy on normal the first time through, but I had to use the environment to my advantage, I bashed him with as many things as possible and used my heat attacks near objects to smash his head. It worked, but it was a close fight and I had to heal a couple of times.

It was pretty sad, in the span of three days, to see Rob go from King of the World to practically begging Jerri to save him.

I can't say that I really like Russell, but that's one crazy, entertaining as hell mofo.  icon_lol

I sure hope he makes the merge...the ensuing chaos will be awesome to behold.

Russell is bar none the best player in survivor history. It's too bad it comes down to a jury vote of the people he burned to get to the finale. He's like the Rasputin of survivor, he can't be killed.

Thanks scraper. I took a chance on it and got it here used as the demo looked fine. It's running pretty well so I wonder if Sony added some form of upscaling to 1080i along the way or if sega just didn't bother to put it on the box. Whenever I see it's missing, it brings back how bad fear 2 looked when I played it last year.

I haven't played much beyond the gravesite portion but it looks interesting so far.

I feel you. My main gaming TV is 1080i only, luckily I have another TV that does 1080p and 720p. But when the PS3 first came out I was pissed because every single game only supported 720p. Luckily for us most games now support 1080i (with the exception of Rock Band 2 and Star Ocean, grumble, grumble, grumble).

I have taken a break from FFXIII and playing this.  Great time so far but I am still in Okinawa. I just played golf (much harder than Hot Shots!)  It is a very fun game. 



Okinawa is actually the worst part of the game, it really picks up after you get out of there.

i could pick up a copy, and was close to the other day, except for one glaring issue that is make-or-break for me.  the game says it supports 720p only.  the last time i tried a game that didn't support 1080i, it looked like a ps2 game.  it was ok then as i had it rented, but if i'm set to drop $60 on a game, i'd like it to look a little better.

anyone with the full game on an older hdtv out there?

or is the demo sporting the same level of detail?  it didn't look too bad to me, but i'm still a little reserved right now.

I have the US retail version and it supports 1080i and 1080p so I'm not sure which version you have, but if its the US version then you should be good. Also, I have an older HDTV that doesn't support 720p and it looks fine in 1080i.

Here's my full review I gave the game a 73, here's my summary:
If you are a twitch gamer who demands a robust or even decent fighting system then you should steer clear of Fragile Dreams. But, if you enjoy a story driven adventure that is about a journey to try and salvage a normal life when it seems that none is attainable, then you will mostly likely find Fragile Dreams charming and worthwhile

I read all the hints. Killed the xbowman and hacked at his legs. I just can't stay alive long enough. His AOE attacks always catch me. I even dropped the shield since it doesn't do anything against him. That sucker owes me over 10k souls. I guess I could try sniping him from up top. I just need to farm more arrows. Seems the cheesy way out for a melee class.

I just stayed right by his feet towards his back and hacked away.

That is the problem...you only get what your car is worth.  And if you owe more than what your car is worth, you are screwed.  How do I know?

This is why I always carry payoff insurance on vehicles. It's usually only about a dollar more a month and it will pay off your loan, plus replace the car, it's nice.

I wish someone would rear end me. That way their insurance would pay for a new car. I dream of that day.

I've totaled two cars. The first one was an accident, the second less so. Both times, insurance paid out considerably more than the car was really worth. I recommend it for cashing in on a beater.

Collisions are a lot less beneficial if you're fond of your car. I was never very happy with the repairs after I nearly totaled my current car, even though it was only body damage. The paint job started showing some bubbles and pits and hairline cracks after a year. Now I'm kind of hoping to get hit again so I can repaint.

I have a paid off 2002 Ford Taurus with 170,000 miles on it. I would take anything I could get for it and be dancing in the street.

Also, I have no idea why the IGN review says it's only 6 hours. I played through the game very fast, and there is just no way you could get through it on your first play through in just 6 hours.
2064  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fragile - new RPG from Eternal Sonata developers on: March 31, 2010, 03:59:29 PM
I am writing my review up on this one now. But if you were worried about the length, don't be. It's actually over 10 hours. I could see people easily taking 20 hours to collect everything and fully explore the game. In my opinion it's actually a perfect length because anything longer would have been too long.

I hesitate to ask...but by what logic do the Westboro people like dead soldiers?

Dead soldiers are signs that God is punishing America for its bad behavior, which is a wonderful thing.  I think.

Yes there are gays in America, thus when America soldiers die it is gods way of punishing us for having gay people. Crazy logic, but it's what they think. I suppose they would rather we kill all the gay people in the country. Since that is clearly crybaby what god would want us to do.

I never subjected myself to that movie because of how bad I heard it was.  smile  Maybe I should check it out.  Is it like Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus bad or more like Transformers 2 bad? 

It's not campy bad, it's just bad because it has such a huge budget and yet it still sucks. If the Mega Shark people had the same budget their movie would most likely be much better than Battlefield Earth.

I'm about half way through this game (i.e. I'm just over 3 hours into it.) I will say that this game will be extremely polarizing. Some people may love it, but others will hate it. The game has an outstanding atmosphere and the story is artistic in that it tries to play with your emotions, BUT the actual fighting mechanics in this game are almost non existent. It reminds me a lot of the early Silent Hill games, in that the gameplay isn't that great, but the mood, atmosphere and story will keep some gamers going.

I will have my full review up by the end of the week.

How does it compare to the new Silent Hill game that was on the Wii?  I loved that one.  Not a lot of fighting in it at all, either (more running from fighting).  But it was all story and atmosphere.

I haven't played the new Silent Hill, but from what I've read about it the two are pretty similar. Except in Fragile you actually do fight things and level up, it's just that the fighting is so shallow, it basically boils down to hitting the A button until the enemy is dead.
