Well I think the Wii U looks pretty shitty. I've never really bought into the whole "move your arms around" type gaming thing though. Hopefully you can emulate it like with the Wii so I can play the handful of decent games that might come out.

I was under the impression that the Wii U was just the Wii + new controller. Personally, I don't think I would enjoy looking back and forth between the controller and screen, let alone having to point it in any specific direction. Even if there's not a lot of this now, I guess I expect them to release games that focus on the controller.
>> No.43631  

don't worry friend, they also have a real game controller that is TOTALLY not an xbox controller.

Well assuming anything I like comes out that uses the stupid thing I'll probably end up having to buy a single Wii U controller to use with dolphin. I'll keep using a sixaxis instead of whatever gamepad they come out with though. I'm sure I'd be more inclined to buy a Wii U if I had anyone to play it with besides my 4 year old brother.

The most reliable method is to get one of the old Linksys WRT54G models (or a similar, newer model if you want larger bandwidth) and install DD-WRT on it. They can be had for ~$10-$20 online, and DD-WRT is pretty much the best thing ever when it comes to wireless devices.

GUYS, I'M IN TROUBLE! Or not. I'm not sure.

Ok, so some French mook on eBay is selling a Vita for half the retail price, and even though I was going to wait for a slim version or whatever, this is dirt cheap, and it contains two games I want and a big-ass memory card. I think it's too good to be true, but the guy has 36 positive reviews, 3 neutral and 0 bad. Legit? Also, does not have self-taken picture of product, which always scares me. I really want it, but what if he swindles me? And do I really need a Vita?

tl;dr ridiculously cheap Vita with 32GB card and two games for half-price. What say Vita owners?
>> No.43716  

As a vita owner I'd say I'd be pissed to play on one that's scratched to shit since the screen is so nice. The project diva game is gonna cost you like $70 anyway so if you don't have money to burn the vita might not be for you. Also, I don't think you should trust the french.
>> No.43717  
The description of "used" says "some superficial marks of usage(...)", and the guy says it's barely been used, and in perfect condition.

Try to check his previous listings. If they were all small things, it is possible that he's trying to scam. Also, if the price of the items were also cheap, it could be how he likes to sell things (quickly, for a bit lower price).
>> No.43720  
Some smart phones for about €200 each, a 3DS + 5 games for €200, iPhone 4 for €300. Everyone says it's perfect and quick, so he looks all right. The auction is still up for 6 days and 3 hours, so I'm worried the price will get too high (though I'll probably save some in the end, anyway).
>> No.43721  
It says "returns refused". Is that normal for smaller sellers?

>watching anime

>> No.43726  

I've only used my vita for playing games so far since I only have a 4gb card. It's probably as good as the psp for all the other shit but who doesn't already have other devices for those functions.

Just buy it off him and pawn it off on some other jerk if it's in bad condition.
>> No.43728  
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. It's easy enough to get fake (paid) reviews, so 30-something positive ones hardly indicate reliability.

Personally, I wouldn't take the chance. Black Friday bundles were your best chance to get a Vita for a decent price. Now you'd be better off waiting until late 2013, when the memory cards (hopefully) drop in price.

Heck, I've used my PSP to watch animé (it's not too bad). Of course, animé looks better on the Vita than PSP because of its larger screen, but my 8GB memcard is running low on space so I'll stick to watching animé on computer.

Yeah, the Vita is alright for watching animé and listening to music ever since the update that provided button functionality to the UI (prior to that the music player was basically garbage). Dunno about viewing hentai since I never tried that, but the 5" screen should be sufficient.
>> No.43731  
I bought a Vita the other day. I'm pretty impressed by it, especially the sound quality. Kinda feel like I should be wearing gloves while using it to avoid smudging the screen, though. Now if only my copies of P4G and VLR would arrive.
>> No.43733  
Um, is it an auction without 'buy now' option? Because if so, with 6+ days left, that means it was just recently listed and will go way up in price as people actually start bidding (and especially near the end of the auction). I always filter my eBay searches to 'buy now' only because the listed price in a normal auction is meaningless.
>> No.43734  
Do you never buy anything through auctions? They usually end up cheaper than Buy Now prices.
>> No.43736  
Yes, they will end up cheaper than 'buy now' prices, but I don't know how 'cheap' that will be. If a product is too expensive, I won't buy it even if I'm getting it cheaper than if I'd buy it through 'buy now'. In addition to this uncertainty, it also takes longer for you to get the product after expressing willingness to pay for it.
>> No.43740  
It's at €186 now (still under Vita RRP), but after some calculations, I found out that buying all the parts individually (and used) will set me back a cool £275/€290, so it's still worth it for a while (5d12h left, someone must give). If there were a buy now I'd take it, but there isn't. I sent a picture to the seller asking for a photo, but have gotten no response.

It's just me and two other guys occasionally increasing by a euro each, and they might be in cahoots with the seller, as one guy has only bid on this. The other has bid on several consoles the last week, though, so who knows...

But I don't have black friday in my country, and Amazon didn't have any deals I liked (why would I want Assassin's Creed?)
>> No.43745  
When searching (and probably also browsing), results are sorted by time left unless you manually sort them otherwise. Most people won't notice the item until it gets closer to the auction end date.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (Vita version) is fun, it's pretty much SSB Sony as expected but it works pretty well and some of the characters are fun to use like Raiden. My biggest complaint about is how you can only defeat enemies by using super moves and even ring outs don't count as a kill I remember hearing that it was that way about a year ago and had hoped they had changed it but they left it that way.

any joypad will work fine for Ys, so I'd recommend a cheap logitech joypad that has an actual d-pad and an analog stick (not a shitbox 360 controller). Amazon will generally have some good deals for these.

I paid $15 from amazon for the one I use. 5 years ago. still works just fine, though admittedly I don't use it heavily, mainly for espx/pcsx2 stuff and the very occasional meltyblood.
The F310 would be the newest version of the controller and have my recommendation. Sadly, this new version had it's numbered button system replaced with the shitbox 360 scheme, after which Amazon promptly went and scalped the rest of their stock of the discontinued, "depreciated" dual action gamepads.

While I understand your 'casuals are invading my video games!' mindset, Wii Sports as much a game as Call of Duty, Super Mario World, Minecraft or Angry Birds. It may not appeal to you, but it's clearly a game (tennis/bowling/golf/baseball/boxing in this case) in digital form, meant for entertainment.

Besides, if you'd be willing to drop your prejudices, you'll find that Wii Sports can be an interesting and challenging game. I especially like the tennis 'wall practice' training mode. Getting platinum medals in Wii Sports is just as much of a challenge as, say, clearing Super Meat Boy. (I'm not kidding; I completed Super Meat Boy's light world without too much effort, but I have only 1 of 15 platinum medals in Wii Sports.)

Please don't assume. I have no mindset; there's no "prejudices"; I didn't say I disliked it. I legitimately meant it was not a videogame, but I'm sorry guess I should've said barely one. Wii Sports being a videogame begins and ends with it just having interactivity. Even by your own logic a boardgame port like monopoly is more of a videogame than Wii Sports (and it is).
Just having gimmicky input for something so bare minimum doesn't make something a videogame. It might be interactive and fun, and maybe even just barely a videogame but certainly no where close to one of the best of the last decade.

Really? My understanding was that Meruru was an improvement on the 2nd one. I've only played the 1st one for about an hour though so I can't really judge the ps3 series either. All I can say is I found that brief time I spent playing the game more tedious than fun.

File: 1325272960706.jpg -(405.8 KB, 525x700) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
The first game is incredibly tedious compared to the other two as it was Gust's debut on next Gen and they were experimenting a lot. Rorona feels kind of like Totori Beta. Currently playing Meruru and I can say that it's better than Totori in combat, music, and synthesis, but I enjoyed the character interactions in Totori much more. The biggest problem with Rorona, in my opinion, was that they made quests a chore. They didn't feel that way in Totori or Meruru which is good. As for the fan base, I feel that they also praise Totori the most.

If you want to play them all start with Rorona and work your way backwards, but that might compromise you actually finishing the series if you dislike it enough. For the most polished gameplay go with Meruru and then Totori, although it might be impossible to go back to Rorona after those.
>> No.43930  

Not the guy you're responding to, but are the PS3 games a trilogy following the same story? Is it possible to just go Totori -> Meruru? I think I just want to play a JRPG with cute girls, but if the story's already well established, I wouldn't want to start in the middle.

Each game has it's own story, but many characters cross over into other games. For example, in Atelier Totori you get Rorona and Sterk as party members, both of which were central to Atelier Rorona. Skipping won't detract from the story but you will miss out on some stuff that the people who played Rorona will notice, for instance the running joke of what homunculus are made of.

I'd say go for Totori if you want, you really don't miss much. Just read up on the character bios for Gio , Sterk, and Astrid. You should be set with those as they're really the only big recurring ones aside from main characters (Gio's masked shenanigans in Atelier Meruru are priceless).

I prefer the missing no. way of getting a level 552 rapidash, but then again, that's not entirely "fair" to the poor bastard you 1-shot with stomp, regardless of whether or not it isn't very effective.


while the alchemy IS important, the overall difficulty of the game is such that you can halfass the alchemy part and still not have much trouble (with perhaps a few exceptions) with most of the game. Unlike persona/pokem, you won't find yourself in a situation where you just roll your eyes, go back and grind for an hour or so, then try the boss again and see if you're high enough level to kill it with the rather-obvious required strat against the one/two trick pony boss.

I like it. It feels nice to get to a new tier and unlock a new set of better weapons. The game was way too short though, and I think it could have had more variety. Survival mode is a blast with a decent amount of people. Those wasps and gunships man.

I've read that this was the only version made by an American developer. Apparently the Japanese made ones have a better loot system and some other game physics. I hope they port the Japanese ones onto steam.

I've heard the same sorts of stories about baystation, but I don't play there much so I can't really confirm or deny them. Their rules do imply that sort of strict RP adherence though. /tg/ is pretty lax. There are still RP rules to follow, but for the most part if your intents aren't malicious or if you just made an honest mistake, you'll be fine.

Impressions of Etrian Odyssey IV so far:
-There's no physical manual, which is a little depressing. Aside from the game cartridge, the inside of the box is completely colorless. The artbook and music CD are nice, though, and kind of make up for it.

-Penalty for resting has been way reduced! Losing only 2 levels seems downright criminal.

-The airship segments are what I had expected the sailing segments would be in the previous game. Movement is a lot less restricted, which is really fun.

-Having trouble deciding between nightseeker or landsknetch to round out my party (F/? M/S/R). I've been switching my party up a lot more liberally than I have in the previous games in order to find a good fit. I can't tell if my playstyle is changing or if this is caused by some gameplay change.

Unfortunately, that's the direction the handheld systems (Vita, 3DS) have gone to push people to buy digital. I guess I'm OK with that, because hey, saves a bit of paper.

>lady boner
Oh lord, when I saw that part in the game I read it twice to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me. The localization really went overboard in portraying her her coarse speech.

Not a fan of the forced airship segments. Sailing was completely optional in EO3 (albeit you would miss out on some really good scrolls), which I think is better.

It doesn't cost en to store items at the Inn, woohoo. Too bad the storage space is really limited (maybe its capacity can be increased by completing a quest?).

I think Landsknecht makes more sense in your party than Nightseeker. Both are great attackers, but N is pretty fragile (so the F would often have to Ally Cover it, since Taunt and Decoy are surprisingly unreliable) and its skills don't assist the rest of the party as much as L's (particulary for FOE encounters). L's Power/Mind Break helps reduce damage to the whole team, not to mention its class skill that lowers enemy defense+evasion.

Not just handhelds. Most games these days either have digital manuals or just skimp out entirely and rely on on ingame tutorials. So, yeah, it does save on paper but I miss the big chunky manuals chock full of fluff that you used to get.

In regards to EOIV, sounds pretty great. Makes me wish I had a 3DS.

As EA forum member LeLedg and others have accidentally discovered in a thread about customers trying to make legitimate SimCity complaints, EA is preventing the customer assistance hotline number from even appearing in the forums. When you type out the number 866-543-5435 , it is replaced by an asterisk, a common message board function typically used to block course language. Just to be safe, the forum-goers typed other permutations of the number in addition to completely different phone numbers -- it's only EA's number that's censored.

To be fair, explaining game mechanics throughout the entire game instead of lumping it into one big tutorial in the beginning is not necessarily bad if done right - Ghost Trick, for example, even explains to you how to use a new ability in the very final chapter of the game. Braid also explains a new mechanic at the start of every single world, and BIT.TRIP Runner2 also keeps adding and explaining new elements. It's not inherently bad (and can be good as it allows for more gameplay elements without the confusion caused by just adding and not explaining them) as long as it's done in a way that doesn't bother the player.
