    So, aside from the resolution; have you even played either of the Souls games in their console forms? Did they change the controls or something compared to the originals? They were kind of "funky", but nothing that took over an hour to adjust to before it was fluid. I haven't played the PC version, so I don't know if they are really that different and if it's simply not the game for you. The first game was totally worth the price of a PS3 to me.

    God damn it, I think the new SMT is going to be on 3DS. The DS Devil Survivors were amazing but there is no way I can justify buying another handheld.

    When I was in first grade I called them "Handhells", I thought that's what it was called.

    Nope.


    I can't tell you if they've changed anything, but it's definitely not fun to play. Steve played both versions and he's telling people to stay away from the PC version too.

    The only thing that I knew about the PC version was that it had framerate issues and that the graphics were not acceptable. Sucks too, because I was so looking forward to an "updated" version. Other than that, do you play many action games? Because neither Souls game is really an "RPG", despite it having that in it's genre tag.

    I finally got a playable copy of Max Payne 3. It's pretty damn fun despite a few control issues. A good bloody romp. Anyone else played it?

    I've had it sitting on my PC for about a month. I played it for an hour and decided that I'd get back to it once I've finished everything else I've been playing. I can tell the narrative will be good at least.

    Despite how fun it is, oddly enough I prefer the old Max Payne's.

    Anyone playing Guild Wars 2? I've heard it's great and I've heard it's not so great.

    Anyone still in SC2? I'm trying for Gold league before the end of season. I swear this game is a cognitive overload.

    Just started SMT: Nocturne. For the first time.

    Well, if you're used to Persona, you might find the gameplay somewhat clunky. I'm having trouble getting into it because I was so spoiled by the Persona series...

    I only played Persona 3, and actually got really sick of the "social sim" aspect of it pretty fast. The gameplay of Nocturne doesn't bother me at all, and just feels like any other typical JRPG.

    Yeah, the dual gameplay is something you need to like, if not I can imagine it gets lame pretty fast. I loved it, but I get that other people don't.

    Getting the True Demon Ending with Nocturne was one of the hardest, most frusterating, yet rewarding things I've ever done in a game. Make sure you go for that ending!

    I'm also still playing Skyrim. Willing to bet anything the big DLC will be Orsinium. Why? Because they had it sacked and conveniently rebuilt right on the border!

    And, Malacaths in game console stats are very high when compared to other Daedric Princes.

    Heh. I don't know what the actual requirements are for that, but I've been trying to pick all of the most selfish choices possible, and ignoring the pleas of "god" or whatever higher power keeps asking me to stop working for Lucifer.

    I can imagine how utterly annoying this game could have been on the console, especially the Kalpas thanks to the save points being non existent there, and when your main character dies, there goes hours of time. Got myself one sick Daisouju though, and now I never run out of mana while exploring and I can debuff/buff/heal like there's no tomorrow.

    Demon Souls was similar in that regard, but it was more of an action game that didn't rely on cheap ass RNG insta-kill abilities that kill the protagonist at the start of a battle. Nocturne is one of those games that actually requires you to die a lot, or just get super lucky until you know what every enemy does.
