Demi AxersiaCircle Pad Pro

6 days ago

Hey everyone, remember this stupid thing?

I just dug up mine from a box of junk to see if it'd work with Dragon Quest VIII and... HOLY SHIT IT WORKS! Every source on the internet says it doesn't, but it totally does. Maybe these people need to change the battery first. Or maybe they removed support from the western release, which would be a strange thing to do, especially since it supports the New 3DS analog nub.

Makes me wonder how many other games I've missed out on... Are Dragon Quest Monsters 1, 2 and Joker 3 gonna work? Now I gotta check...

Anyway, what a dumb device this was. To think they released it WITHIN A YEAR of console launch. If a second analog pad was so important, why didn't you just add one in the first place?

Circle Pad Pro

The Circle Pad Pro (Known as Slide Pad Expansion in Japan) is an accessory for the Nintendo 3DS that contains a second circle pad and two additional shoulder buttons. It was released alongside Monster Hunter 3 G in Japan on December 10, 2011, and Februar...

rockshard PhD "Or maybe they removed support from the western release" jeez, why not check first before accusing people of being wrong. Though the battery theory is pretty funny.

rockshard PhD I thought that supporting the new one but not the old is like a regular thing, or do I thought? Smash Bros did it. That\'s what I find odd about all this. It almost makes sense, Ninty doesn\'t want their New model to be upstaged by an add-on, that would be embarrassing for them and would make ppl want the new one less.

Demi AxersiaNew Nintendo 2DS XL (Liquid Metal Slime Edition)

1 week ago

Hah! Good things come to those who wait. Amazon Japan randomly put up a new batch of pre-orders and I managed to get mine in (they're gone now, of course).

And Gries He, to answer your question from a while back... The New 2DS XL has the same 4.88" screen as the other XL models. It might even be clearer, since my other 2DSes also give a nicer image than my original 3DS due to the lack of 3D functionality.

Of course, it's a "New" model, so it comes with Amiibo support, the additional analog nub, and the higher specs which allow for Xenoblade to run. At only 260 grams it's also significantly ligher than the 3DS XL (336g) and New 3DS XL (329g), and the new design makes it smaller and more compact with very little bezel.

If you think you'll still get some use out of it the coming years, it's actually a really good upgrade. Damn shame about the region-lockout, though... I'm gonna have to look in to what the 3DS piracy scene is like these days, because it's be a shame to get such a nice system and not being able to use it very much. I might just have to order a European system so I can transplant the motherboard. Then I can sell off the Japan/Europe-exclusive orange-white 2DS to an American, and the circle continues.

For fuck's sake... Just because I missed the announcement this morning, I already lost my chance to get one of these at a decent price.

Well, whatever. I'm sure I'll have gotten over it tomorrow. Guess I'll just add it to the long list of limited edition handheld systems I wish I had but never will, as I refuse to pay money to scalpers.

Demi Axersia The most annoying part is that I totally read a post about the limited edition Dragon Quest PS4 that I have no interest in, and right under that was a post about this. Had I just scrolled down a bit more, I could've still gotten my Amazon Japan pre-order in. But... it's fine, it's fine. I'll live. Heck, I probably wouldn't have actually bought it anyway, right?

Demi AxersiaDragon Quest XI

So the Japanese release date has been set for July 29, 2017. Can you believe it hasn't even been 2 years since the game was announced? And they only missed their intended release window (the series' 30th anniversary year, which ends May 27th) by two months.

How did Square Enix manage to pull that off? For two simultaneously-developed games, at that. How the fuck is Kingdom Hearts III not out yet with no release date in sight?

Anyway, So-Frickin-Pumped! I just got my double pre-order in at Amazon Japan, which is probably a bad idea, because why'd I wanna play the 3DS version right after finishing the PS4 version?

That said, they did manage to implement a password system as a throwback to the the Japanese release of the first game, and the passwords are interchangeable between the different versions, adding cross-save functionality. I'm sure there will be limitations (lest they end up with those absurdly-long passwords from Golden Sun), but being able to quickly jump ahead in the other game should be fun.

Still no information on the Switch release except that "it's coming... someday". If it turns out to be a port of the 3DS release (which I'm worried about more and more...), I'll cancel that version and wait for Switch.

For me this is looking to be the best year in Japanese gaming since 2010.

Demi AxersiaPersona 5

Can't decide whether I should pick this up or not... I still have a place where I can get the steelbook for 65 euros, even though Amazon.co.uk has failed me on the regular edition. It used to be 40 pounds on pre-order, but now it's 56 pounds with an expected shipping date a month away.

Anyway, it seems so loooong... Why did Persona games have to become so looooong? I've only played 3 games in my entire life where my initial playthrough went over 60hrs, and this'll probably be like, what? 90 or so? (I know some people say 150, but I doubt that -- I'm not that kinda player). I just think about the limited time I'd have each day, and how long it would take to even get through the thing. Kinda makes we wanna play something else instead.

On the other hand, a lot of what I'm seeing here resonates with me more than the previous two Persona games (of course, it still ain't no HD SMT5, which is what I really want).

I just don't know...

Demi AxersiaWarner Robins

So I thought I'd check up on the latest Google Street View of my grandparents' house in Warner Robins, GA. There's a white van in front it that says "State Prisoners," and 3 guys in reflective yellow vests looking at the the camera. Yup, that checks out alright. Don't think there's been a single trip to my grandparents where they didn't have prisoners trudging through ditches doing... I don't even know what. Are they supposed to be picking up trash? Because I doubt there is any.

Anyway, last time I was there was 2012. I actually considered showing up on their doorstep as a surprise. Taking the Greyhound bus in Atlanta would only take me as far as Macon. Then I'd still need to travel another 15 miles through what I'd describe as no man's land (for US standards, it's probably not actually that bad). Thought about walking the entire thing or hitchhiking my way there, but I dunno... America is weird. When I was last there, there'd recently been a shootout on a nursing home parking lot not far from their house. Why the fuck would there be a shootout on a nursing home parking lot?!

In any case, I figured it'd be too much of a hassle/dangerous/expensive, so I just got my grandfather to pick me up at the airport. But now I'm thinking of going there again along with my girlfriend, and the idea of just appearing there one day on their porch just seems like a really cool thing to do for my grandparents.

Turns out Uber is now active in Atlanta as well as Macon/Warner Robins, so transportation isn't really an issue anymore. Heck, we'd actually be able to get places without having to be stranded in a suburb.

Perhaps we'll go there sometime later this year.

So after 35 hours over the course of 4 days, I\'ve beaten the game. Endings ABCDE, done. It\'s gonna take some time to adjust to real life after that. To accept that the incredible journey I just went on wasn\'t real. The people I\'ve met, the amazing things I\'ve seen... None of it actually happened, and I was just sitting at my desk playing a video game. But it felt so real... I think the last time a work of fiction made me feel that way was when I watched Interstellar.

Needless to say, this game is gonna need a spot very high up on my list of all-time favorite games. I just don\'t know where yet.

Tom Smyth What a year it been for gaming, japanese games in particular. GOTY #1 Nioh - built upon Souls combat into something fresh, complex and deeply satisfying. Nitpick -Shame the magic is OP and enemy/level design pales in comparison to Souls. GOTY #2 Zelda BoTW - makes me excited for open world games again. Theres so much interactivity in Hyrule it puts so many other open worlds to shame. Nitpick - lazy dungeons/bosses. GOTY #3 Nier Automata - Granted ive only finished playthrough A&B so far but i have no nitpicks and it continues to blow me away. Stunning, beautiful. The true GOTY right here i can feel it!
