      I know it's late. I noticed RPG Maker VX Ace on sale on Steam and thought about reviving Primus but tbh couldn't be bothered after 55+ hour weeks.

    Looking forward to it. Kind of unsure about "mega-evolutions" though. Need more information on them. Rest of it's fine. I'm trying to avoid learning about new moves and forms as much as possible so that some things are still a surprise. Having said that, I know I'll look it up when playing the games so meh. Got two of my friends to buy a 3DS so we can relive our childhood battling each other. Fun times. October will take ages to come round now.
  4. Bought Fullmetal Alchemist Movie pack and Fate/Stay Night complete set. Gradually working my way through my wishlist lol.
  5. Additionally, EA have come out to clarify that their Online Passes are "dead". There was some speculation that, as EA announced they were scrapping them a week before the Xbox One announcement, they saw the consoles implemented DRM as a replacement. To the contrary, CEO Peter Moore came out with the following statement earlier today: As we said a few weeks ago, none of our new EA titles will include online pass, and we are removing it from existing games as well. Nothing else on today’s news, but did want to be clear that our online pass decision was based on player feedback, and there’s no change. Full interview was held with Polygon.
  6. A few thoughts: There is a still a mandatory online requirement, like Nero said, at the beginning to remove the shit. So, if you don't have ANY internet access, you're still fucked. I find the whole idea of Microsoft "having more" exclusive than Sony to be a bit forgetful. Sure, they had more at E3, but you have to remember Sony announced the PS4 in February and announced a load of new games there so of course Microsoft would have more at E3. They didn't say anything about games - aside from name-dropping some - at their announcement conference. I would agree them having exclusive deals with AAA developers is more of a coup than than Sony's focus on Indie exclusives however. Sony's best seemed to be timed exclusive to TES Online beta. On the subject of design. Do people ever truly expect something like some of the concept stuff we say when we get the rumblings of a new console. They're always going to look like big black boxes of plastic. Frankly, I'm pleased with how they look. As I'll have six consoles stood upright on my shelf by the time I've got next generation bought it's far easier how they look now than the PS3's dome. Overall, this doesn't change anything for me. I would have bought an Xbox One anyway, when the price had come down. What I'm glad about though is this reverts the whole thing back to which console has your favourite games on rather than whether you want a next gen console with freedom or not. It should ALWAYS be about the games in my book, I'm happy that's true again.
  7. Well, follks, if you ever thought you didn't have any power as consumers, this proves us all wrong. It would seem the incredibly harsh reaction to the Xbox One from the public - and some journalists - has prompted a complete and utter u-turn from Microsoft. Don Mattrick released a statement on the Xbox Website which is copied here for your perusal: For us, the future comes in the form of Xbox One, a system designed to be the best place to play games this year and for many years to come. As is our heritage with Xbox, we designed a system that could take full advantage of advances in technology in order to deliver a breakthrough in game play and entertainment. We imagined a new set of benefits such as easier roaming, family sharing, and new ways to try and buy games. We believe in the benefits of a connected, digital future. Since unveiling our plans for Xbox One, my team and I have heard directly from many of you, read your comments and listened to your feedback. I would like to take the opportunity today to thank you for your assistance in helping us to reshape the future of Xbox One. You told us how much you loved the flexibility you have today with games delivered on disc. The ability to lend, share, and resell these games at your discretion is of incredible importance to you. Also important to you is the freedom to play offline, for any length of time, anywhere in the world. So, today I am announcing the following changes to Xbox One and how you can play, share, lend, and resell your games exactly as you do today on Xbox 360. Here is what that means: An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games – After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without ever connecting online again. There is no 24 hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you want and play your games, just like on Xbox 360. Trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today – There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360. In addition to buying a disc from a retailer, you can also download games from Xbox Live on day of release. If you choose to download your games, you will be able to play them offline just like you do today. Xbox One games will be playable on any Xbox One console — there will be no regional restrictions. These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc. Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray. We appreciate your passion, support and willingness to challenge the assumptions of digital licensing and connectivity. While we believe that the majority of people will play games online and access the cloud for both games and entertainment, we will give consumers the choice of both physical and digital content. We have listened and we have heard loud and clear from your feedback that you want the best of both worlds. Thank you again for your candid feedback. Our team remains committed to listening, taking feedback and delivering a great product for you later this year.
  8. I'm doing the same. I'll be getting a PS4 just so that I've got one. There have already been reports of stock shortages and Sony have increased their sales forecasts on the back of E3. @Nero, I'm very much with you. Despite intending to get a PS4, possibly on launch, haven't decided yet, I may still get some of the cross-generation titles on 360/PS3. As much as the new consoles will have nicer graphics, this is not always the case at the start of a consoles life, and probably won't be with some launch titles. I'm more bothered about exclusives, like Thief next year that isn't planned for this generation of consoles, indeed, Thief specifically was delayed so it could make the jump Think about it, Sony were pumping out PS2s for thirteen years. There PS3 has been around for seven... if that trend continue that means we have around five or six years of PS3 support hypothetically.
  9. Yeah, I've never been into the whole dolls/plushies side of it. I don't collect anything other than games and anime. I don't have enough room to start buying little figures - like Nendoroids - from all the shows I like, even if the Kurisu Makise one looked awesome... At the moment I have two shelves for all of my anime, DVDs (mostly stand-up comedy, some series and games. I have about half a shelf left now. That's why I gave up on buying the really long shows (Naruto, Bleach, One Piece etc) as I just wouldn't have room for them. Oh, yeah, I understand completely. No one has ever quite done that to me though lol, they've just bitched when I've said I don't want to watch something. I'm usually pretty diplomatic about it and say something like, "I'll get round to it". That usually shuts them up because I've accepted what they've said. Never going to act on it though, just gets them off my back. I watched Samurai Champloo. Was okay but the ending was complete shit. I watched two episodes of Ergo Proxy and got bored so I gave up with that. I bet Attack On Titan is your latest one, eh? People are bound to be telling you to watch that all the time. For what it's worth it is a good show. I know, right! I was watching one a while ago when I was playing Darksiders and the guy just wandered around for ages. I'm there screaming at the screen. The most annoying thing was after he figured out the easy bit he did the part I was struggling on straight away. I didn't know who was stupider lol. He sounded like Todd Haberkorn as well, which was amusing.
  10. Yeah I totally agree. I'm not much of a movie watcher but I've got friends that love them. They're obsessed with getting me to watch a lot of the Marvel stuff. I do like Game Of Thrones though. People definitely have to accept what you like and not try to force their stuff on you. That happens too much in life, hell we put up with it everyday in adverts, we don't need our friends and family doing it as well. It's guaranteed to make you cynical about what they're telling you, as you said. Just for the record though, I didn't force my cousin to play the games or watch the anime. I was playing FF9 on my PS3 and she liked a certain bit, I forget which now and then asked me about the game. She was surprised when I said it was Final Fantasy because She's only fifteen - fourteen at the time - so she doesn't really remember before PS3 - Her parents wouldn't let her play games until secondary school. As for anime, I was watching Rosario + Vampire and she liked the school uniform. She watches mostly that sort of thing, big fan of K-On, Fruits Basket, Puella Magi and anything Ghibli. At the minute I'm trying to get her into more than just slice of life shows. I started with Spice & Wolf because I knew she'd like Holo, but it has more serious themes than a lot of the other stuff she liked. She enjoyed the first few episodes. Go me. Lol. I think you have to be open minded to try things out. Some times I'll watch an episode of something and not like it particularly so I'll stop watching it. At least I tried it though. I know some of that is contradictory but meh, deal with it, lol.
  11. I am currently watching: Attack On Titan - 8/10 (11/25) Very, very good show, great art style. Might end up as my first 9/10 by the time it finishes. If you haven't started watching it yet, you're missing out. The Severing Crime-Edge - 6/10 (11/13) A meh show, but for some reason I can't stop watching it. May as well finish it now. Kind of like Fate/Stay Night but with weapons rather than summons. It's all just to hide a weird hair fetish though. Gosick - 6/10 (1/24) Started last night. Seems okay so far, will carry on watching. Little Busters - 8/10 (1/26) One joke about four minutes in had me laughing so hard it already has an 8 and a purchase if it gets licensed in the UK. Every time I remember it, it makes me laugh.
  12. Girls Und Panzer 6/10 Don't really know what all the fuss was about from some circles. It was just K-On with tanks. Sword Art Online 8/10 This was my 17th title to earn an 8/10. Wonderful, character driven story, some great visuals. You know it's good when you mourn a character that had five minutes of screen time.
  13. Bought the first two Persona 4: The Animation boxsets. For some reason they're releasing it in three sets over this side of the Atlantic. Tiger and Bunny is in four parts ffs.
  14. Even at $15 or even $20 it's cheap compared to buying a physical copy. Most people have the same favourite when it comes to FF. It's usually something from 7 to 10, depending on how old they are. For a lot of people, not all, it is the first one they played. You will get the odd person who really liked 12 as well, although whether they consider it favourite or not I wouldn't know. They're usually just there when someone slates it, like above ^.^ I can't imagine the twelve or thirteen year olds of this generation are going to be looking back in fondness about 13 or 13-2 to be honest. Certainly wouldn't be my favourite but you try getting them to play a game with sprites rather than polygons. NB - I've tried with four, only got one to go for it. Not only is she now my favourite cousin but she also likes older games and anime - all because of me. She went to a convention last year cosplaying as Garnet from FF9. I was so proud
  15. I have played A LOT of RPGs lol. They're pretty much all I play, other than FIFA and the odd racing game, nothing much piques my interest. I've played all the main FF games, not the MMOs, all the DragonQuests, all the (older) Phantasy Star games, all the Breath Of Fire games, most of Shin Megami Tensei games, I own all the Tales of... games released in the West, then there are other things like Alundra, Grandia, Skies Of Arcadia, Vagrant Story, Suikoden games, Lunar, Secret Of Mana, Metal Walker, Chrono Trigger, Chrono Xross, some of the Atellier games Lost Odyssey, Eternal Sonata, Blue Dragon, The Last Remnant, Nier, Infinite Undiscovery, Ni No Kuni, Ys games, Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2, Resonance Of Fate, Enchanted Arms. That's just the J-RPGs I can remember playing. I've played less Western RPGs but they've only grown in prominence in recent years. In terms of them I've played Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Baldur's Gate 2, Sacred 2, Kingdom Of Amalur: Reckoning, Two Worlds 1 & 2, Dungeon Siege 3, Too Human, Torchlight 1 & 2, Arcania games, Gothic games, SpellForce games, Risen 1. MMORPGs I've played is a much smaller list. RuneScape, World Of Warcraft, Runes Of Magic, Earth Eternal, RIFT, in that order. I've played a load of XBLA or Indie ones too but the only names I can remember for that is Constume Quest, Castle Crashers, DeathSpank games, Penny Arcade 1 & 2, There are things I haven't played though. I've never played any of the Ultima games, Wizardry games and I still want to play the rest of the Atellier games, The Last Story, Xenoblade Chronicles, Dark Chronicle, Rogue Galaxy, Shadow Hearts, Dark Souls 2, The Witcher 3 - jumping on those two late I know - There's so much to play, so little time these days. EDIT: On the subject at hand rather than that waffle, FF9 has been on the PSN since 2010, as have 7 and 8. They're probably about $10-15 now. Don't know the exact price for you but I think they cost me £8 each when I bought them.
