Regardless, fixing that alone wouldn’t sell me on the game. I prefer buttons and loathe touchscreens. I only bothered with (half) of FFD because the iPod/iPhone was the only way to play it and I didn’t want to miss that experience.
But FFIII DS, FFV, FFVI, Tactics, etc. are all available on other handheld platforms with buttons. Besides, portability doesn’t matter to me that much. 99% of my play on handhelds occurs at home.
I really didn’t enjoy the cumbersome touchscreen controls of FFD, what little I played of it because the price threw most my interest out the window.
I mean, when you get right down to it.. Getting those games on handhelds is not only going to be a better gaming experience, but potentially cheaper too. SquareEnix has a habit of bloating the price of their iOS versions.
Why the hell pay $15+ for a poor port when I can pay about that much (or less) for a better copy?
caramelzappa said: Whoa man where have you been? It’s been $60 for like a year or so? Definitely turn off auto-renew though, because if you pay attention to sales you can get the 12 month XBL cards for $35.
Must’ve gone up just after my last renewal. But yeah, I keep hearing how it’s cheaper to find the cards, but I’ve never had any luck doing so. My timing must be shit, or something, cause I either miss all the deals or they’re sold out by the time I hear of them.
I’m definitely turning it off now it’s gone through this time, though, cause $60 is just outrageous. It’s also a good idea for me to mentally keep a note of when it expires, I’d totally forgotten this year. Came up on me outta nowhere.
Then again, the year has flown by for me.
EDIT: And done. Wow, the last time I had to stop an automatic renewal they made me call up customer support. I guess Microsoft has made some small improvements to their accounts. Pity about the insane security hoops I had to go through last year when I accidentally mistyped my password.
I don’t know how long it’ll last, but Perfect Dark (not the terrible sequel) is currently $1.99 on Xbox Live Arcade.
I can’t say it’s aged well from a gameplay perspective - my cousin and I had a tough time with it a couple years ago when he got it on XBLA - but it’s still fun. Probably better with friends than alone at this point, since it does have local co-op if I remember correctly.
Just letting people know, in case they wanna scoop it up cheap.
For about 2 weeks I’ve been wondering when my Xbox Live Gold Account was going to renew. Everything had told me it was the 25th, but Bank of America has yet to make any note of this.
Now, I’m going through my emails and discover Microsoft upped it to $60 instead of $55 I’d originally paid, and I’m kinda miffed.
They harp on about the “entertainment apps”, internet browser and other features I don’t even use. I only have Gold for one reason, to play with friends on certain multiplayer games (and recently the free games they should’ve been offering for years).
I dunno, it just seems.. irritating to think that if I could just yank out the crap I don’t want, the price should be lower. Like.. a Gold and Gold +. Basic Xbox stuff like multiplayer and games with Gold could be $40 a year or something, and if you want all that stupid multimedia crap (just my opinion) then you can pay the bigger fee.
Or maybe just have had Gold be about the Xbox itself, and the multimedia stuff which .. you know.. PCs, phones, and such can do.. could be something different entirely.
I dunno, it just upsets me that I’m paying for stuff I don’t want. I mean, it isn’t like they even remove the fucking ads or allow me to customize my dashboard or something.
This is pretty much just me venting and ranting, I don’t expect anything to come of this. Hell, I’ll probably get at least one grouchy retort. Hah…
According to Escapist News, the Xbox One beat out the PS4 in Black Friday sales.
I had to stop and look at some comments because I wanted to see if I was still living in the same reality I’d gone to bed in the previous day. I mean, I was seeing used Xbox One games at GameStop the very next day the console came out.
Any ways, turns out that the reason PS4 wasn’t having as many sales is most places had already sold out, at least from what I could gather elsewhere.
As one person said, you can’t make sales if you’re sold out. Just found it a bit interesting, and a little sad that Escapist is misrepresenting information to make it look differently.
Been helping clean up at my grandmother’s house all day, so we could put up this tree and decorations. Think we did a pretty good job just me and my aunt.
syntheticsymphony said: Good luck with Dark Souls. Remember that persistence is key and if you feel like the game is too hard it’s probably because you haven’t worked out how to play yet ;] The game rarely ‘unfairly’ punishes but it IS punishing if you mess up.
Yeah, I’ve been on the fence about the game for a long time for a lot of reasons, so I’m already girding myself for things like that. The lack of pause button is going to be one of the biggest issues because I have cats, friends, and family.
caramelzappa said: Still showing 250 for me, but I’m on the website not the app.
I think there is some discrepancy between what the app and website can do. You can reblog your posts via mobile, which isn’t possible through the site, strangely enough. I don’t know why they have to be different, but yeah…
…did the length of Tumblr post comments via mobile suddenly drop by like 100+ characters?
This is even less than fucking Twitter! Only 96?
I’ve said years now that “school life”, no matter what they claim, does nothing to truly prepare you for “real life”. The gap between them is so large that people traumatized in their childhood just can’t fathom that college isn’t the same, and will convince themselves it’ll be terrible. It’s sad.
Don’t even get me started on jobs and parenting. The latter of which really should get some sort of course.. gods.
