I'll Face Myself

I'll Face Myself -Another Version- - The only issue is that the song's heard like twice in the game. Same song, but the piano and trumpet are switched.

That Harmony of Dissonance one is ridiculous. I have no clue what just happened.

I wish DS luck. Personally I'm the world's worst speedrunner, so I find it to be an impressive skill. Sometimes I check SDA just to watch terrible games like Back to the Future.

I've never particularly cared for tool-assisted runs. It's impressive if someone writes the tools, but I don't find it to be the same kind of skills as a speedrun.

So it's impressive, but not in the manner that a speedrun is supposed to be impressive, to me anyway.

Dragon's Crown is very much an homage to Capcom's D&D beat em ups. Very pretty game, although some people take issue with the character models, the gameplay and loot systems can't really be denied.

Not much like Guardian Heroes, but if you want beat-'em-ups with RPG elements, then the Yakuza series. Plus, more content than you can shake a stick at (dozens of minigames from casino gambling to Shogi, and about a 60-100 sidequest per game).

Excellent thread, and it's very cool to see the info on the various third-party carts. Congrats!

I haven't owned a Nintendo console in a long time, so I really can't say definitively. I generally wait until a system's library of games fills out before buying a system, and at this point I can't really think of anything that the Wii U has that I really, really want to play.

Most of it simply looks like the same stuff that came out for the Wii. Things like Bayonetta and a Xeno RPG could certainly fix that, but even then, that's a big investment for a handful of games that I'd actually play.

The sports game, and fighting game lineup is very limited, and I think other consoles are the better alternative there. There's an HD Zelda, but not a new one until at least 2015. No Metroid, no next-gen Castlevania. I can play Deus Ex on the PS3 etc.

Yakuza1+2HD would have been amazing, but it wasn't localized, and Assuming it was, it would also have been on the PS3 with the rest of the series.

Excellent price point, definitely going to look into getting this. My RPG to everything else ratio on the 3DS is way out of whack, and that kind of ruins half the purpose of the system.

This is the first I've heard of this. I just did a quick search to get acquainted with that exactly it is. What's the price tag, and is it a digital-only release?

Ending D of Nier? Ending D of Nier. Well like a few weeks ago. And Pokemon Y run 2 yesterday.

Ending D of Nier is pretty much perfect. I just hope, unlike me, you didn't name your character Nier.

Would you reccomend a purchase, or should I wait for the inevitable MGS5 complete package? I'm a huge MGS fan obviously, but it's hard for me to justify paying $20 U.S. for something that really sounds, from reviews, and people online at least, like a glorified demo.

At the same time, when DLC for games is $15 a pop, and most of them last 2 hours, this sounds like something that can be replayed a lot of times.

I never technically beat the game, as I never got all the way through Chapter 5.

The game is fun, and I have to admit the squad building/RPG elements make for a really fun experience, but it has the same problem that a lot of PSP games with systems like that have. You have to grind out hours, and hours worth of the same mission to get the unlocks. It's extremely frustrating. I had a great time with the HD version, but I don't envision myself ever dedicating 100+ hours to unlocking all the missions, weapons, etc.

And that's to say nothing about things like Emblems which require you to do stuff like have an all-female staff. If I had to fire everyone, just to regrind missions for the best staff members for one single emblem, then I'd lose my mind.

It's all good, but it is messed up. Everyone that ended up buying the game when it came out got royally screwed if they bought the DLC. That's a wasted $30 U.S. unless you're serious about getting your trophies, or seeing content as soon as it comes out.

I bought in via PS3, and I got Bladewolf and Jetstream Same for free. My understanding is that they were made free after the PC version came out. The VR missions DLC however, were not included for free.

How was ROM hacking acknowledged? It's just a game with a built in level editor. That's been done many times before entirely unrelated to ROM hacking.

That's a valid point, but it hasn't been done in this series to my knowledge. A series that has always been extremely popular to hack.

I bought, and beat Metal Gear Rising (when it was on sale a couple weeks ago for $15 U.S.). The game's much better than I thought it would be. From a gameplay standpoint, it's fun as heck, and Platinum did an excellent job at making combat that was extremely smooth. There are some rough edges, given the lack of development time, but those mostly show up in reused assets for the environments.

From a story standpoint the game was actually solid (and probably the best in the genre). I have to say I was impressed, especially given how much I (though not everyone) enjoyed the Metal Gear franchise. The game did a good job with some of its characters. The music and boss battles were the standouts, and the final boss is one of my favorites of all time. The perfect blend of absurdity (poking fun at Metal Gear, and the genre as a whole), and an epic and interesting fight. The music is also simply fantastic during all stages of the boss battle, finishing up with a song that really blew me away.

All things considered it's a really fun game for fans of the genre, or MGS fans, and I beat it twice (Hard and Very Hard) on fresh runs of both. The NG+ system is also excellent, allowing you to carry over your unlocks via level select, or start over with all your collectables intact, plus the two major story DLCs came free with the game. It's a short game if you just run through, but if you're like me, and listen to every codec call you can, it will last you twice as long (I got about 11 hours out of my first run, and 12 on my second due to dying a lot). Keeping with the trend of the genre, the game is very difficult.

Always nice to see stuff like this, and it's interesting to see romhacking being acknowledged, especially by a company the size of Nintendo.

I don't know if that was the intention, but keeping the homebrew section very specialized allows for it to be present. The site has never been homebrew-centric, but this allows things that fall within a very defined niche to be hosted, while not allowing the site to become overrun with things outside of its scope.

At least that's how I see it, assuming this was a conscious choice.


My first guess on that would be the game (though that's one game I never had issues with). Then again, errors could easily show themselves in different ways. I'd try different games, and see if you also have any issues. The first sign of a dying laser is that games will take longer and longer to load up when you put them in the system. If it's just the disk drive, then it can be replaced (assuming you want to go that route). I know that disk drives for the older systems are still available, I don't know if they are backwards compatible.

I keep a PS2 around still, and I never got much use out of the PS3 in that regard (outside the PS2 Classics on the store).
