    All in all, it was a pretty damn good Christmas. I doubly appreciate it because until the day before Christmas Eve we had been without electricity for two weeks, due to a freak ice storm that knocked over trees, power lines, and telephone poles all over town.

  2. Arc the Lad Collection - I figured, hey, I pretty much like every tactics game I've ever played, this was the first one on PS1, and I get all three in the series! How can I go wrong? Oh, yeah, the developers forgot to program in any FUN.

    Eternal Sonata - Previews and reviews made it out be the first great 360 JRPG, but apparently they were using a special scale that applies only to retarded six year olds. While pretty and nice to listen to, the repetitive, unchallenging battle system and lack of any coherent story made it a chore to play through.

  3. Another Soundscape, consider returning Eternal Sonata (assuming you still can). While the game is quite pretty and has a nice soundtrack, that's all it has going for it. The battle system gets extremely repetitive and lacks any sort of challenge, the game is linear to a fault, and the plot degenerates into a hopeless mess that is downright insulting in its lack of quality.

  4. Well, it seems my PS3 just died. Turning it on yields no picture, no startup sound, and trying to turn it off via the button on the front does nothing, only producing a series of three beeps. Weird, as it worked perfectly fine on Friday.

    Luckily, I still have two weeks on the manufacturer's warranty. And if Sony customer service gives me the runaround (as I suspect they might) I still have a full product replacement plan at Best Buy. Bah.

  5. Hm. That's going to put a damper on the next Batman movie, because if someone does a bad job I generally wish I could beat them to death with a lead pipe.

    Damn him for taking the option from me. And pre-release, too.

    Are you trying to be funny, or are you just an insensitive asshat? I'm having difficulty deciding.

    Rest in peace, Heath.

  6. I was worried that the were going to screw up Trinity Soul in some manner, but it definitely has that Persona vibe. Also, when they said it was "related" to Persona 3, I assumed they just meant "inspired by." I was pleasantly surprised when they reference the events in the game (also by the music cameos).

    About the only thing I don't like about it is that the Personas are translucent. For some reason that bugs the hell out of me.

  7. Any Street Fighter player worth his salt can pull of a Shoryuken when he needs to. It's one of the basics.

    I'm not disputing that. I'm talking about going to do a punch or a kick, and then they instantly shoryuken the outstretched limb. I wasn't referring to anything specific in the video, just my own experiences on XBLA.
