I remember Legend of Dragoon being a lot more fun. I dont mind it, the world is rich with stuff to do and the characters are great but its a little slow. Takes more than three hours to unlock magic, and even then its only when you're transformed so you're back to playing press X fifty times a battle. But il keep playing it, I remember being a huge fan of Rose when I played the game for the first time and every time this character speaks I like her even more.

Brotha that soundtrack is straight heat. Im now mad at myself for not buying this game earlier. Now I didnt listen to the songs you posted because they were the last boss themes, to me last boss themes are like spoilers. Ever since I heard ff7s advent children one winged angel before I actually beat ff7, and it just wasnt as impactful. Like I heard ff6s for the first time when I actually got to the last boss fight and it left such a lasting impression. Now as long as it has a decent challenge, unlike ff3/4ds, which I will always compare bravery default to because of the art style; Ill be happy. Ff3 was super easy, and ff4 was a challenge but not difficult. But maybe because at the time I played those, I had already played alot of shin megami tensei titles.
Now repetitiveness and grinding doesnt bother me at all. Im a fan of the dynasty warriors series, and grind a lot in most games. Ill probably pick it up after im done going through persona 4 again. I was gonna get persona 5 royal. But i dont want to get burnt out on persona. Those for the info homeslice

Last i remember the game is slow. Played when I was like 9 and loved it but never beat it, tried playing it again some time in highschool and I just couldn't get into it because of how slow the combat was, so i stopped playing after like 10 hours. The addition system is cool, but it took me a while to get used to the timing. The music's not great either. The typical battle ending jingle is generic as hell. I also missed a few stardusts you couldn't go back and get, bugged the hell out of me.
But it is a great game. Not a final fantasy killer like how the magazine Tips & Tricks billed it as. I used to own a copy but i let my friend borrow and his brother stole it and a bunch of other of his games and sold it for crack. I think its still on the ps3 classic list though. Ima have to give it another go.

Can you guys help me find my dad a superior game to star trek timelines?

I know people who care about achievements exist but I have yet to meet a single one in real life. It's perhaps because you're always in your bedroom grinding out achievements arbitrarily picked by the marketing division of a corporation in an attempt to milk an extra few hours from a product.

>*I was one of the only three people who got the achievement

This is why I'm not proud of these things. They're achievable goals that anyone could do if they tried, but most people don't bother and achievements are gotten accidentally or through regular gameplay. Because most people see through the facade.

I've completed quite a lot of achievements that less than 50 people in the world have. But that number of people "achieving" is going to grow every day. It's like a meta collection quest tacked onto each game. The only platform I've seen do them right is Uplay, ironically. They have rewards in a lot of games that you can trade achievement points for.

It's a really good game, and technically is the sequel to Linley's Dungeon Crawl so it's a series, but I've never beaten that one, only played it a handful of times. I've played DCSS for almost 10 years now on and off and I've had a few dozen 3-5 rune victories, one 7 but never 15. I always get back into the game, play like a hundred hours, win a few times then go for 15, get like 8 or 9, yasd, and then quit the game for a few months

Still only play 0.19 mostly, I don't care for the changes after that, 0.21 is ok too i guess

Hi all, I’m looking for a new racing game to play, any suggestions welcome
Personally I’m not a huge fan of the open world racing games that are so popular these days, I much prefer just a game with well designed tracks.
As far as handling goes I’d say 70/30 arcade/sim. I definitely lean on the arcade side more but still like the cars to feel and control nicely.
Also found out that I’m not into those rally racing games like Dirt when I tried that out.
And since the thread will be pointless once my question is answered let’s just make this a general about racing games

Rise: race the future. Stupid fucking name but the gameplay is solid
No bullshit just big multirace cups, challenges, time trials etc. Cars feels good and the options they give you aren't amazing but enough to find something you like. Has the drifting of a weighty need for speed game but then the speed of something like wipeout and water sections that feel like wave racer
It's a really cool game and I think its underrated as hell
It's even under 20 bucks

Earlier today you had a bunch of different drivers like V8 and Indycar do races on iRacing just for shits and giggles. Guys just want to race, even if it's in an overly expensive simracing setup that costs double my car. And here I thought I was fancy for having VR to race with!

Solid game, if you want some 6th gen nostalgia there's always FlatOut. Alternatively if you're looking to expand on the whole Finnish/Scandinavian redneck experience there's always My Summer Car.

It's because like a lot of games it fell for the whole open world thing, on top of having only 8 spots to finish a race in the game based solely on compass bearing. Don't forget that the remaster is pretty much worse in nearly every way compared to the original.

Racing games get real enthusiasmal expensive, especially iRacing where it charges you a monthly subscription ON TOP OF piecemeal DLC. I think the "best value" for a higher level sim racing title would be Assetto Corsa: Ultimate Edition on a sale because of the mod scene.

I just finished a few of the starfox command (for the ds) endings. I don't know, I really like the game. Maybe I didn't hate it because it's the first star fox game I ever played. The main complaints are that the levels are very repetitive... and they are, but I don't mind it since I like the gameplay a lot. And the other complaint is that the story is atrocious, but I think it's so bad it's good. It's like a deviant art soap opera with star fox and crystal bitching and crying all the time, it's really, really bad and unintentionally funny. Doesn't help that the art is awful (the drawings).

Now I feel like I am not as much of one as I previously assumed. I just go out and buy whatever catches my eyes. Bootleg Alter Love Love knockoffs and mismatched Touhou figures. Maybe a figma or two, and unofficial wall scrolls.

Of course, I can see quality when it's there, but I just surrounded myself with things I thought were cute like some demonic Moe Magpie. You've inspired me to reconsider next time my collection enters a conquest phase of expansion on my shelves.

I've been ashamed of my bootleg Love Live alters before. You can tell when you look at them. The Kotori is pretty convincing to me but the others all seem a little off even without a reference point. Eh, that's what you get for $50 vs $300.

You know, some of the bootleg figures aint all that bad. And with the increasing prices of all those figures, it can be pretty daunting to spend all that money on the figures. ALTER for example are seriously getting out of hand with their prices, and in more than one occasion, I've been tempted to just pick up one of the bootlegs instead. You just have to make sure you're not paying premium for it. I don't really blame you for buying Love Live bootleg figures. ALTER love Live figures were overpriced upon release and only got stupid expensive once scalpers get a hand on it. I'm not a huge fan of Love Live but I kept my eye on their figures and they are really expensive, even used in Akiba.

I hope you're not the type that just leaves his figures out in the open collecting dust. Never mind how lame that looks, Bootleg figures tend to use cheap coloring which gets worse with time especially if they're exposed to a lot of humidity. It feels like glue and it starts to smell, anything that falls on it is stuck there forever. Ironically, Bootleg figures require extra care to hold on to their value.

I think the real challenge is when it comes to the Shelves really. Its so easy to just go to IKEA and buy the Detolf glass cabinet. They're not bad or anything, but their built quality is flimsy and they kinda falls apart for a while. Take pictures and anyone who sees it will know you didn't have a clear idea of what exactly you were doing. Also the fact that western comic stores seem to rely on them a lot make them bit cringe to see. It's how you identify an Ironic weeb. Someone willing to spend a lot of money on a figure and shipment only to cheapen out on the actual display. Someone who's just going through a phase and will be bored of it eventually.

Getting custom glass cabinet to match the theme you're going for is really the only way to go imo. Jewelry Shops do it all the time and it doesn't cost all that much, it just require a bit more effort but ultimately looks great in the end. It also makes it ten times easier to set lighting inside now.

Trying my best to make my room look like an Otakunest got me a little into carpentry. I wanted a single table to fit all of my Gamey stuff and there isn't usually anything like that in normie stores so I had to make it myself. It was a lot of fun.

So im really not trying to make fun of you guys by saying this, but you guys really collect figures? I mean understand buying a couple for your room and desk and shit, but not of like sexy little anime girls and putting them in glass cabinets. I understand its art and they're extremely well made and yall respect the detail and work put into them, but I didnt think there people who had glass cabinets full of moe figures, unless they're the kinda people who truly like 2d over 3d girls. Which i thought was just an anime trope(like in 3d Kanojo), until I saw a documentary on Japans declining birth rates and that theres actually guys who dont even talk to women. Most huge weebs I know have rooms like for example the youtubers Prozd or Longbeachgriffy. Just a bunch of shonen posters and wall scrolls and a handfull of figures, normies i guess. But having a room like the one I pictured just seems...well like an unhealthy obsession. Especially for someone who is over 30. Is it safe to assume you guys plan on being single for ever? It just seems highly unlikely someone with an anime girl figure collection is dating a girl. And there are girls out there who have these types of collections, they're just few and far between. Thats fine and all a relationship is a lot of work. And you are supporting the franchises you like by buying so much collectables. And you're obviously successful in life to afford all that stuff. Its just if I had a friend who collected moe figures in a glass case, I would worry about them, sounds like something someone who is extremely depressed and wants to escape the real world at all times would do. Well hopefully yall find someone to pass down your collections to after you die. They're not like cars or guns, or art, its like a niche hobby art.

I'm pretty sure that was the Xbox 360. Or maybe the original PS3, with the 360 having like a 62 or 72% failure rate, at least for the first revision. If the X-hueg had that kind of failure rate, I think they could have at least just slipped in some 7cm fans, it had enough room for 8cm fans.

I don't think that with SSD they wil decrease the size, since SSD is like the faster version of HDD and it has nothing to do with games size, it all depends on developers on how they're optimizing their game, the most space usually takes the sound and video files, and what they have to do is to make the files smaller.

That's fucking bullshit btw.

Sure you can duplicate data to save seek times at different points in loading for common assets... But nobody does that shit on hard drives. It was mainly done for optical discs, because they had a finite amount of space, horrendous seek times and any free space was wasted if not used, so duplication was a no brainer.
