Huh, apparently Amazon Germany launched Prime support for the Netherlands on November 9th and nobody told me. Would've been nice to know considering I already had a Prime Video subscription going and could've consolidated them.

So Gries He, as both a German and devout follower of Amazon, what do you suggest I waste Amazon resources on now that I get free overnight shipping from Germany?

So far I've ordered:
24 packs of Leibniz Pick Up Choco & Milk biscuits
6 packs of Leibniz Zoo animal crackers
4 boxes of Cheerios
6 cans of Maggi Ravioli with spicy sauce
6 packs of Maggi Topfinito currywurst with potatoes
2 cans of Erasco meatballs
6 bottles of Granini Pink Grapefruit juice
6 bottles of Valensina Blood Orange juice
12 cartons of Berchtesgadener Alp wholemilk

Sadly none of the sodas will ship to the Netherlands, and neither does Amazon Pantry so I'm left having to buy everything in bulk.

Of course, practically all the supermarkets here have delivery services these days, but it's far more entertaining to make separate orders for each individual product, and have them all delivered by mail on the same day.

Demi AxersiaYs VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana

It sucks when you play the latest game in the series, and you're like "This is awesome! I'm really in an Ys mood right now and should play that last game I skipped." But then I look up footage of Ys: Memories of Celceta, and I'm like "Nope... Not the same game. No jumping, no behind-the-back-camera, no 60fps, bosses take goddamn FOREVER..." I'm sure it's still a fine game, but it's just not the downgrade I'm looking for right now. I might just pick up Ys Origin on PS4 or Vita, though...

Anyway, Ys VIII's really good. Be sure to get it on PS4 or PC so you don't miss out on the additional content.

Travis Green Yeah, the series has gone through many different phases over the years. VIII is essentially the ultimate evolution of the party phase, taking the system started in Seven but also bringing back the platforming elements from the previous phase in the series, and also adjusting the camera. So, just liking one game doesn't mean you'll love them all. VIII is my favorite, but Origin, Oath in Felghana and Ark of Napishtim are all excellent as well.

So I got in my pre-order on Amazon France, but I don't know that I even want it... 95 euros + 5 euros shipping is at least double what this thing is actually worth. And they kinda ruined the design by hiding the controller ports behind a panel, meaning you'll always have this ugly piece of plastic sticking out if you want controllers plugged in.

Anyway, I'll leave it sitting there for now just so I don't need to worry about it the coming days, but I might just cancel it anyway.

Big day for 3DS hacking (actually a couple days ago now...). 3DS hacking was already really easy if you were on 11.3 or lower, but from 11.4 onward you were shit outta luck if you didn't wanna open up your console to do some soldering.

There's now a new method called ntrboothax, which works on all 3DS systems ever released, on all firmwares past and likely future as well.

All it requires is a magnet (unless you have a regular 2DS), a specific flashcard (more should be made compatible in the future, but it's only 18 bucks and easy to come by), and a 3DS already running custom firmware so you can install the exploit to the flashcard.

In the future, there should be a new method released which uses the Action Replay Powersaves rather than a second system. But honestly, if you don't have the necessary equipment, I'm sure you can find someone local to do it for you for 10 bucks.

I've been waiting for this as I got a New Nintendo 2DS XL (Liquid Metal Slime Edition) two weeks ago which shipped with 11.4. Now I can finally region-unlock that thing to use it with my entire collection of games, and grab myself a copy of Xenoblade and Hyrule Warriors.

Demi Axersia So someone already came along and created a rom file that you can load off the flashcard, that patches the flashcard to allow ntrboothax. So the entire process can now be completed even with a single unhacked system.

Arghhh! I\'m such a slave to physical media! Why did I just buy a physical English Vita copy of FFX-2 when I only picked up and beat the PS4 version two months ago?! I wasn\'t even looking for it. It just caught the corner of my eye.

But it was only 32 dollars with free shipping! As soon as this seller runs out, you can probably flip it for double as it\'s quite hard to come by (unless you live in Hong Kong/Singapore/Malaysia, in which case it might be easier). There\'s only 2 left. Get it while it\'s hot:

Ulty The real question here is why would anyone in their right mind spend money on these two pieces of shit?

5 months ago

rockshard PhD Jrpg fans will like anything and they are to blame to why we can't have nice things. In their twisted mind good games are against the law or something. I tried to play Monster Hunter and Gods Eater Burst, they make you wait a full minute before you can start the next quest. You literally have to walk around for a minute. I thought random battles were bad. It's starting to look like no aspect of these games are supposed to make sense. I don't see Namco putting the wait mechanic (everything qualifies as a game mechanic now, put dog shit in the game case, that's a "mechanic" - don't like it? That's like your opinion man) in their other games, but God Eater is a Monster Hunter ripoff and Monster Hunter had it so obviously God's Eater has it too. Duh! ... It's utterly surreal. Could this all be the product an "obedience driven culture?" https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JVqMAlgAnlo

Demi AxersiaDragon Quest XI

5 months ago

Gahhh, I wish I had more time to play this game! I've had the PS4 version for 5 days now but I'm only 30 hours in, and it seems I'm only halfway through.

They made a real DQ game here. A worthy successor to DQ8. Not that DQ9 wasn't any good, it just wasn't what I'd hoped for. DQ11 so far has met my expectations on almost all accounts. There's two aspects where it does fall short, though...

First off, the music. There doesn't seem to be as much original music in this as previous games. They've recycled a bunch, especially from DQ8. While there are some areas and scenes where this makes sense, just randomly throwing in a town theme from DQ8 because there's only 1 original town theme is kind of a bummer.

Secondly, DQ8 was the perfect game at the time. The only thing it was still missing was a seamless world, which might not have been possible with the technology they had. My vision for a DQ8 successor is that it'd finally have this seamless world.

Unfortunately, the game is still heavily zoned, perhaps even moreso than DQ8. In DQ8, I feel you could follow a path, and you'd either hit a loading screen for a town, a dungeon, or the sea. It was extremely smart and elegant in its zoning. In DQ11, you can reach the end of a path and will need to load the next zone. Granted, they can be massive, but I suppose having the horse available from the get-go can make them feel a lot smaller. At least you don't need to load a house's interior anymore.

I just hope the game wasn't held back by the 3DS version... It's been said that the 3DS version didn't start development until the PS4 version was halfway done, but that it was "always the plan" (sure....). It's also been said that the 3DS world had to be scaled down, because the 2D version got too big for a 2D sprite-based RPG.

It's fine, though. This is, by all accounts, the game I've been waiting for. I went into it thinking I'd probably like it more than Breath of the Wild, but didn't think it'd top Nier Automata. Now I'm not so sure anymore. It's so good!

I'll be starting a new playthrough of the 3DS version on my Liquid Metal Slime 2DS XL today on the train. The game doesn't have a job system, but the skill system is basically the same as DQ8 (just with a hexagonal license board presentation), meaning there's quite a bit of replayability as using a new weapon can make you feel like using a new class.

I've also tried out the password system to import my PS4 save into the 3DS version, and yes, it totally works! Your party's levels will be set to that of the hero, and your equipment will be the best purchasable at that point. You might lose a little story progress though, as I think you need to hit a completion flag for each town. So while not a substitute for a true cross-save cloud service, it's perfectly fine if you want to switch versions halfway in case you're going on vacation or whatever.

All in all, the game definitely feels like a sendoff for the series and a big thank you to the fans. Yuji Horii himself said there might not be another one directed by him (guy's in his sixties, y'know?), so he really had to make this the best game it can be, and use all his ideas he'd built up over the years. I'm extremely excited to see how this story ends, moreso than any DQ before it.

Ulty From what I understand, you wanted an open world DQ. That would be really amazing, but DQ never rolled like that. I am so fucking pumped for this game, if it's as good as DQVIII i'll be in heaven

5 months ago

Demi Axersia It didn't need to be open world, just seamless. With good level design there's plenty of ways to gate the player. Keep in mind even Jak & Daxter was a seamless game. I guess I always just figured that with current-gen hardware, they'd try to make a game where you could just walk into a town without a loading screen. It's totally doable, and I'm a bit worried they didn't even bother as they had to divide the game into chunks for the 3DS version anyway. Speaking of which, I got to play a couple hours of it today, and it's a completely different experience. You can still ride a horse, but there isn't much point to it because you can just walk from one end of a zone to the other in like 30 secs. A distance that would've felt like a "journey" in the PS4 version. The battles are also sped up (not necessarily a bad thing...). If you want a quicker abridged version with the same story, the 3DS version is the way to go. Also, the 2D mode feels... off. It's too spacious. You can definitely tell that had they made it any bigger, it would've become a problem. But was it really worth sacrificing the size of the game world, just add in a retro mode as a bonus? Ah well, I suppose it doesn't matter. Anyone who cares enough to play the game as it was intended can just play the PS4 version.

Ulty Sure but when we're talking about RPG's or adventure games, those caracteristics are usually associated with open-world games. But I understand your point, and I agree it would've been better for immersion. I guess the culprit there might be the decision of making a 3DS version, but honestly I wouldn't be surprised if the decision was made early on in development. I love the DQ team, but when it comes to game design and holding on to traditions they're total dinossaurs.
