So the problem is insufficient preparation? Shame on you! You gotta pretend that if you die in the game, you die in real life! Game hard! Take them more seriously! jk Hmm, Gamefly has intrigued me now. When you buy your rented games from Gamefly, do you get a discount? I would assume so since they're pre-owned and don't come with the original packaging, though I prefer owning everthing that comes with a game to make the collection "complete." Makes sense to "test" a game series out before choosing to buy/really start.

Thanks! I wasn't much of a gamer as a child, mostly Sonic the Hedgehog games, multiplayer cartoony fighters (like Super Smash or the PSX Dragon Ball series), Kirby, etc. On the rare occasion I played a JRPG when younger, I wasn't aware of the genre, and it was based off an anime I didn't know was an anime at the time (like Fullmetal Alchemist, Inuyasha, Pokemon, Digimon, Eureka Seven, .hack, etc). xD

I haven't tried Devil May Cry but I was thinking about it because of the difficulty and the battle system looked neat. Which would you suggest I tackle first in the series as a newbie to it? I'll be waiting for your response on Drakengard 3! There's many games comin' out I want, so I've finally decided I won't be getting it immediately unless I get a lot of positive feedback.

PS: I've started playing Escha and Logy. Honestly, I'm very disappointed, but after the second day of playing, which was yesterday (I didn't have time to play today), I began liking it a bit more. Time will tell if my view of the game improves as I play... Have you gotten it yet?

If it was me playing, I probably would continue until I beat it (I wouldn't take a break for another game). Be more persistent, Karasu! But then again, I have no idea how much time you sadly wasted and would have to recover. xD Gamefly's cool, but I prefer owning my games to ensure I can play them at a moment's notice. Plus, I know I'll get my money's worth, so I'd rather spend the whole $30 - 50 than whatever they charge you per month. On a monthly basis, I purchase 1 - 3 games (1 being extremely common, 2 being slightly uncommon, and 3 being rare), though I kinda exclude games that only cost about $3 - 5 because so they're so cheap, hehe.

RPGs are my calling. I actually started to really get obsessed with them a few years back and am making my way towards purchasing and beating every JRPG I'm truly interested in. My biggest backlog is on the PS3 since it continues to release new games, but I have merely a handful left for the PS2 (yay!). I'm not too far behind in the 3DS since, luckily, it's a new system. DS I still have a ways to go... Got a big backlog for the PSX too... PS Vita I have no games left to beat at the moment (there's a bunch releasing soon and later this year). Then there's the PC, yeah, far behind... But I'm working on them and trying to become a JRPG master!

Well, I WAS a big fan of horror movies from elementary school into high school, where I then focused my interests on anime. But I just could never get into shooting games. I'm desensitized to fictional violence/gore/whatever as a result of heavy horror movie watching, so that's not what bothers me. It's one thing to watch it and be uninvolved, but another to actively kill other people or become wrapped up in life or death situations yourself (even though it's not real). That's what I don't enjoy about the shooting genre or really any game with "extreme" violence. I guess you could say since I can never project myself onto my character, I'm incapble of immersing myself in those games, and in turn, I can't find the fun.

Ugh, yeah, "hack and slash" is what it appeared to me. I haven't played many, but the ones I did I was not fond of. And yeah, I noticed the dragon who was seemingly overpowered. Lol You loved the story? Stories are a big reason why I play JRPGs, but I admit I didn't bother looking into the game's plot before looking at gameplay videos and deciding, "Nope. Done!". The trailers for the game are what's forming my undecisiveness; I plan on waiting for reviews, friend recommendations, and gameplay videos before my final decison.

I'm curious too; I guess we'll find out next week! Er, when do you plan on buying it? I have it on preorder, haha. Oh, you're going to beat Dead Space first? Hope you can finally finish it! I've always disliked shooters (basically, games with the intention to kill other humans), with the sole exception of the Star Wars Battlefront series (maybe because I don't see them to be nearly as violent, there's no blood, etc?) My friends have always tried to get me into them (Gears of War especially, it was alright), but aside from the violence being a reason I don't play them, I really, REALLY suck at them too. >_<

"The gameplay isn't the best"... Yeeeah, that's what turned me off from starting the series from the beginning. I watched some gameplay videos of the first one just a couple weeks ago actually and I thought to myself that battling was way too repetitive and uninteresting, even for an early PS2 game, though the flying dragon aspect interested me a tad. I'm still undecided about Drakengard 3, though I'm leaning more towards no, at least definitely not an immediate purchase.

Haha xD

That's good. Oh, I know what you mean >.< Been really cold over here too (right after we had a few 50 degree days), and yes, it's weird how that happens, isn't it? 

Hopefully it gets warmer where you are soon! :)

What's new?

I've always loved the art in the Atelier series, be it the colorful chibi sprites in the PS2 games or the beautiful designs in the PS3 games. The setting in Escha interests me as well, though that's because I want to know more about the world that the characters from Ayesha live in (plus apparently there's airships, something Atelier has never included before since it's been more about fantasy, less sci-fi). However, EVERY Atelier game is about a person/a small group rediscovering the lost art of alchemy and attempting to cultivate it once again, if that's part of what you found interesting.

Haha, I was ready to claim it whenever the season was coming up (just didn't realize it was spring, not summer!).

I have not. I'm aware of the games and have watched gameplay videos of the first one (REALLY didn't interest me), but I've also been sort of paying attention to information about the new third game. I'm not typically a fan of violent games, so I probably won't buy it. Why do you ask?
