      Damn Decepticons, always wanting us to hail Megatron. I’ve had 5 come to my house in the last two weeks wanting to know if I’ve heard the good word of Megatron. They’re worse than Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses!

      You can smell the energon.  That's how I know.

      *peers out window*

      *hides*

      *yells* I know you're out there...I can hear Starscream's shrill voice in the background.

      In anycase bro, it's good to see your back Griever!

      Hey, hey thx, Iggy. I hope to not be such a stranger again  in the future.  Good to see you, too, Yangus.  Not to worry, I have still been playing and supporting the wonderful DQ games we have been graced with in recent years.  :)

  2. Hmm, I'm reading an article stating that DQ8 3ds will have voice but will NOT have orchestrated soundtrack. That's a punch to the gut.

    1. Dark Slime

      Dark Slime

      The MIDI soundtrack on DQ7 3DS sounds great to me. I think they will do a good job with it on dq8 too.

  3. Everybody's talking 'bout DQ7 and I'm all like, "when does my free home theme unlock tonight?"

      Afraid not. Maybe once I start playing the game it will. I don't know, I just can't bring myself to be excited. I'm happy to see everyone else is thrilled though.

    3. gooieooie

      gooieooie

      Haha, well, I know I'm excited, but I'm happy to hear you're excited for SMT4 Apocalypse. :)

      I'm used to being the odd man out at this point.

  4. Preorders for physical and digital releases of DQ7 have been make. Better late than never, I suppose. I may have asked this before, but does anyone here play Guild Wars 2? That game gets better every year.

  5. One month until DQ7!

  6. Etrian Odyssey Untold 1 is $9.99 on the eShop right now. That's a great price and it's a great game. Untold 2 is at a lesser disount.

  7. Really enjoying MH Generations. I think it's a little more accessible than what has come before.

      I was a dual sword user before, but sword and shield seems to be one of the best choices now.

    3. Griever

      Griever

      That's not to say I won't go back, though. I love the dual blades. :)

      Whenever I pick up Generations, I'm taking up the Lance again. It was always my favorite back in Tri, but never really used it in 3 and 4 Ultimate. I gotta bring back the classic.

  8. I like living in a world where Dragon Quest VII is on the official Nintendo page.

      *toasts* Can't wait till they advertise on the eShop so hopefully more people at least realize this franchise exists.

  9. So, is it looking like DQ7 could be released pretty soon? I've seen some things online that are suggesting that. I can't believe it's almost here, after waiting for so many years.

      YangustheLegendaryBandit

      I assumed you meant from its actual release. 5 years is even longer then.

    3. Griever

      Griever

      You were correct in time since its release, Yangus. But, yes, I've been waiting since its unveiling. It's a little sad since I would have thought we would have had the game by 2013, latest. I would have been sad in 2011 to learn that we were just getting the first DQ game on the 3ds in 2016.

      Ok, 3 more months.

  10. Hello, Denizens! Just wanted to swing by and tell everyone that Rogue Legacy is on sale for $3.74 on Steam, today. If you aren't familiar with it, it's one of the best Metroidvanias out there. Some argue that it is THE best.

      It was on HB not too long ago, right?

    4. SlimeVagrant

      SlimeVagrant

      I've had that game for a while. Would definitely recommend it.

  11. Life just doesn't make sense. A friend of mine beat a 10 year drug addiction and was flourishing as a person and as a father. Yesterday, he was killed in a car accident. It just doesn't make sense.

    1. ignasia

      ignasia

      I try not to make sense of it, but instead to enjoy it and seek always for the best possible outcome for myself and everyone I care for.

       

      I'm sorry for your loss Griever. That's always a terrible tragedy. My sentiments and prayers to his family.

    2. jay

      jay

      Jeez...I know that really hurts. But like Ignas said, sometimes it's better to try and not make sense of it. Life just isn't fair. You have my sympathy

    3. Liamland

      Liamland

      Considering we're all on borrowed time, it's possible that beating his addiction may have extended his lifespan, even if it was cut short by the accident. May your friend rest peacefully. My condolences.

  12. I think I remember getting 1000 jump ropes in FF9 back in the day. How in the **** did I do that, exactly?

      I'm taking a little break from playing. I'll continue tomorrow once the steam controller arrives.

    3. Griever

      There's a 2.3gb update for the game today. Wonder what that's about?

    4. sounderfan84

      They re-encoded the FMV. Fixed a few issues.

  13. If I could, I would ban the word, "masterpiece" on all video game forums.

      Erdrick The Hero

      Come on, Dragon Quest V and Dragon Quest VII (and arguably Dragon Quest VIII, though I have yet to finish it myself) are truly masterpieces. The word is overused, but that doesn't mean there aren't some games that really are such.

    3. Griever

      Griever

      Oh, there are certainly masterpieces out there, but I get tired of someone saying nearly every game they happen to like is one.

    4. Cesar Hernandez-Meraz

      Cesar Hernandez-Meraz

      There are gems and underrateds, but the ban would be because of the words are used a lot when they do not really apply.

  14. Recently got FF13 1&2 for really cheap. Yes, I know FF13, in general, was a letdown. Objectively, are the game worth my time, even with a million other games to play?

    1. ignasia

      ignasia

      What other games are on your backlog that you're most interested in playing?

       

      Personally, I'd say it's worth a single playthrough, if you have 50 hours to spare for the first game, and 30 for the second.

    2. mariosmentor

      mariosmentor

      FF13 is actually one of the few Final Fantasy games I can actually tolerate. Go ahead and give it a go.

    3. Wonderslime

      Wonderslime

      Meh - there is so little depth to any system in the game, it doesn't deserve the name "Final Fantasy." I mean, it can't hurt if you've never played it before, but there isn't much replay value, I'll tell you that much. Good luck with it!

  15. Aaaand, FE:Fates Revelation is now available for download.

    1. eal

      eal

      Gotta finish Birthright first. I'll probably have it done by Sunday or Monday. How big is the file size?

    2. Griever

      Griever

      I haven't even finished my first path, yet lol. My file size was 599 blocks. I believe it adds on to any data you may already have on your SD card, but I don't really know for sure. Meaning, if you don't have the other alternate path downloaded, the file for Revelation may be bigger.

  16. I installed my new 980 ti Classy today. This beast, that has been a year in the making, is finally complete.

  17. So, the R.Mika "butt slap" animation has been removed from SFV. Again, not a big deal, but I can't help but be annoyed that a group that doesn't even play games can dictate what I can or can't see in one.

      Exactly...it's not freedom from speech and assembly, it's freedom of, which includes the right NOT to participate, and do your own thing. Think someone is an idiot, but don't feel like getting into a debate? Fudge'em! Imma have a soda, some popcorn, and watch a movie!

    3. ignasia

      ignasia

      Don't want to play that game? Fine. Lobby for a company to make your idea, or start your own game, gather friends to help develop it! Or start a kickstarter if you have to, or write up a full script and find a willing buyer who will accept the concept as presented.

      I remember a newspaper article, which was about a similar topic. Their opening line: We are raising a nation of wusses.

  18. I guess it's no surprise that DOAX3 isn't going to be heading West. I couldn't care less for the series, but it's another bad precedent being set. Where does it end?

    1. Dwaine

      Dwaine

      Love the NeoGAF tears. "UGH, how dare they! I used to be a big customer." Really, you're just NOW noticing all the fan service animu stuff. Please. PlayAsia has always been a great affiliate and I'll continue to use them.

      Everyone keeps pointing fingers at some woman named Anita. No idea who she is though.

      At least PlayStation 4 is region free.

  19. I've enjoyed some games on my 3DS, but I've never felt like it hit the same stride as the original DS. I think 2016 is going to change that. I guess that's appropriate since next year will probably be its last year of true relevance, with the NX coming and all.

      Man, we need to get you guys some profile pictures.

    3. ignasia

      ignasia

      It won't matter. I uploaded a picture far larger, about 10x the size, but it auto-shrinks it down to fit within the size parameters. Just note that it's a square, if you want to avoid losing crucial elements.

    4. Griever

      I'm right here if you guys need any Transformers ones. :P

  20. The original Disgaea is coming to Steam. I'm loving all these JRPGs coming to PC.

    1. Madrigal

      Madrigal

      I have my original for the PS2__ very unforgiving game if you don't level up

    2. Griever

      Griever

      I only had Disgaea 2, so I never played the first one. They seem to be abou the same, gameplay-wise.

  21. Back to my first-world problems: Why was Fallout 4 allowed to be released without SLI support?

      the fallout games are not made for pc they are a buggy mess of non stop crashing i would like to play fallout 3 and new vegas becuse i have them on my pc but the crashes and lag like no tommorow

      I got taken in by the hype. Seems pretty fun, though.

      The dialogue wheel turned me off from it.

  22. I've got 300+ games on Steam that need playing, but all I can think about is Monster Hunter 4. They sure do cram a lot of content into those little games.

  23. Thinking about my people in and around Columbia, SC. Many of them lost everything in this flood.

  24. Gauntlet 2014 is actually pretty fun. Of course, I didn't go in with any expectations.

  25. Checking out Mario Maker with my son. It looks good, so far.

      If they put it on the 3DS too I'd buy it. (don't own a Wii U)

    3. Griever

      Griever

      No, I actually kind of agree with you, Tesla. I didn't mind paying $60, but cheaper is always better being that I'm a consumer and I always put consumer interests first. I mainly just wish Nintendo would join the rest of the industry and lower the price of their games after they've been out for a while.

    4. Griever

      Griever

      And Shanoa, I would definitely get my own copy if it was on 3ds as it is quite cool.
