Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2

How is it so far? If I can find the time, I plan to give it a try in the near future.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2

How is it so far? If I can find the time, I plan to give it a try in the near future.

The game seems fairly enjoyable so far... my only complaint is that it has a close-up third person POV, and in certain areas it is sometimes difficult figuring out what direction you are supposed to be going... or for that matter what direction you are going. I wish you could switch between 1st and 3rd person, or at least customize how far away from the character you are. Other than that it's been good though. I just beat the first minor boss as I was typing this post  Grin

So is the POV the same as the original Joker? I can't remember if you'd said you had played it or not. Joker had a third-person POV, but I don't remember it causing more than a little trouble, and IIRC only in one cave. A first-person POV would be interesting for a DQ game, but I'm not sure how good it would be in practice (especially with the sub-par graphics of Joker - IDK if they're improved in Joker 2).

I haven't played the original, so I'm afraid I have nothing to compare the second one to. Perhaps I was spoiled by Skyrim, where I can zoom way out. But then I grew up on RPGs with the characters being little more than blobs of a couple-few colors, and viewed from high above, letting you see what's going on all around you.  angel

In the new Dragon Age I was hoping for something more like the big open world of Skyrim rather than segregated areas, but this somehow sounds acceptable to me...

Growing up on Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and having played the Planescape and Fallout (1+2) games, I honestly prefer the segregated areas. Playing Fallout 3/Oblivion just feels like space between areas for the sake of space.

There were five or six copies of Dragon Quest IX in the $10 bargain bin at the local Walmart. My heart shed a tear. Yet, as sad as it was to see so many unsold copies, perhaps good can come of this, and some people will take a chance on it for $10, and be introduced to the greatness, the awesomeness, the sheer epicness, of Dragon Quest.

LOL!  What madness is this?!?!  You expect people to actually get good at the video games now?  This crazytalk must be stopped now.  For only 1.99, you can unlock the crazytalk silencer which is good for 39 whole minutes.

I just got EUIV and it isn't much different than EUIII, there are some differences, though kind of minor. Obviously I've started as Byzantium. It's 1510 and I've already captured all of Asia Minor, Greece and most of the Balkans. I have Bosnia (which is Serbia/Bosnia/Croatia combined) as a personal union, and Wallachia (Romania) and Armenia as vassals. I'm currently warring against Syria to gain a few provinces including Antioch. I plan on also warring against Aq Qoyunlu to free Georgia from it's grips and to eventually gain Georgia as a vassal. Then on to finishing off the Mamluks!

I think that was one of the first three games I played on PC, along with Civilization and Wolfenstein 3D. Sid Meier also had Colonization, Pirates, etc. back then... he could do no wrong for a while there...

WOLFENSTEIN 3D

That was a great game.  My parents were convinced that it was abhorrent and it would turn me into a mass murderer.  So far, I have dodged that bullet.

I've been on a video game buying spree lately. I've bought The Last Story (Wii), Sin & Punishment: Star Successor (Wii), and Star Ocean: The Last Hope (360). Hoping to get to The Last Story first, ironically.

I also bought FFXIII, 360 edition, again, because I figure I'll finally finish it one of these days.

I've been thinking about trying BlazBlue again. Anyone got any opinions on how the franchise has done over the past year or so?

Europa Universalis IV. It feels more like Europa Universalis 3.5.

I never bought it, I am angry that they did not include in the holy see panel the home region of each cardinal the name of the cardinal

:p

and too many dlcs and stuff turn me off, especially day 1 ones

(really it was because of the dlc spam I am sick of it, I don't want to play games with dlc spam, I dont want to do ck II all over again. day one dlc though makes me really angry I want to bash my computer)

The Byzantines can destroy the Turks in two or three moves in M2TW. I can't play them since I know how to do it.
Do you use any mods?  I use Stainless Steel 6.4 which makes the game much more entertaining.  Byzantines are still way too OP tho.

I loved stainless steel!!!

and i LOVE that that game has orthodox priest headgear!!!

Every time I played that game as the byzantines, I love the priests so much I put one, a bishop, in every city I have pretending they are the cities bishop...

and now, when they added in a patriarch in the mod, ohhhh boy !!! xp

although, I like Rome Barbarian Invasion, I could have orthodox priests on the battle field :p inspire those men!!!

Yes and no. Europa Universalis games are very, very good. I've spent hundreds of hours playing Europa Universalis III.

me too

hundreds and hundreds of hours making the entire world orthodox Wink hahahaha

I really prefer though to play as the Pope, and try to take every land possible, then release them as a vassal Archbishop/Bishopric

I've been watching the list of launch titles for the PS4 and xBONE all year, hoping (irrationally) that some game I was interested in would magically appear... but nope, nothing. The only game that has a somewhat fixed release date that I'm interested in doesn't come out till Fall 2014. Meh. I guess a new computer might be the way to go...
