Re: Ep 47: CONTEST!

This will sound like something Chi said on the last episode, but my biggest gaming surprise is how much i've embraced playing games on my (i)phone. From casual stuff like Angry Birds to the...

Re: Dragon Quest IX Thoughts?

Japanese players have had the game for over a year, so they've cracked it wide open.

The strongest weapons in the game are found in S ranked blue grotto chests, but the strongest armour pieces are...

Re: Dragon Quest IX Thoughts?

After throwing myself against the various grotto bosses a few dozen times and coming out of it with only 2 rare drops, i've fallen into using the Hoimi Table method...

Re: Dragon Quest IX Thoughts?

I love my Sage! She's just the right mix between a mage and priest. Multiheal and Moreheal is enough to get my 90+ team through a tough battle, and the Zam/Boom style spells give her the bite i'm...

Re: Dragon Quest IX Thoughts?

Aside from Half-Inch (probably one of my most heavily used skills), I don't see the thief job as all that great. Rangers get a bigger deftness bonus and martial artists get a bigger agility bonus....

Re: Dragon Quest IX Thoughts?

I'm not 100% sure, but I think you can tackle the remaining fyggs in any order you want (previous games were like this). The only difference is how powerful the monsters/bosses are going to be....

Re: Dragon Quest IX Thoughts?

The Gladiator class makes a nice skill dump companion to my warrior. I've been switching him between the two as I go, and I like the way he's turning out.

I'm not so sure about the Armamentalist...

Re: Dragon Quest IX Thoughts?

All the major stats and what they do are explained in the instruction booklet. Deftness is related to things like critical hits, successful stealing, and preemptive strikes. It's kinda like the...

Re: Dragon Quest IX Thoughts?

As far as I know, you can only play with others locally. I'm sure bringing this game to events like PAX would lead to all sorts of multiplayer fun (shame i'm not attending this year).

How far are...

Re: E3 2010 predictions?

Well, so far we've got an image of a possible slim 360 (http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3179817) and the final name for the Natal camera motion sensing thing (Kinect).

I'm not expecting any...

Re: Nintendo announces the 3DS

I'm not opposed to getting a more powerful handheld (and I hope it does go that way), i'm just afraid of the direction it might lead developers. Some of my favorite games for the DS are games that...

Re: Nintendo announces the 3DS

It's kinda hard to comment on this beyond wishes and speculation, as we don't really know anything concrete about it besides the basics (it's 3D, backwards compatible).

I'm pretty excited myself,...

Re: gta dlc

It was suggested that the GTA episodes didn't meet sales expectations on the 360, so i'm pretty sure it won't be all that huge on the PS3. The game came out in 2008, and so far 2010 looks like it's...

Re: Best Side-Scrolling Mario

I'm pretty surprised that Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island isn't up for voting, as it's at least more of a mario game compared to part 2 (which was reskinned into one for a western release). That...

Re: DS vs PSP

I just find my PSP to be clumsy and uncomfortable to hold. The way controls are so close to the screen, or how it gets smudged easily if i'm not careful. Not to mention the horrible little "nub" that...

Re: Ep. 27 - Listener Q/A Segment

Re: Which franchises would you like to see be brought into videogames?

I'd like to see a game take place in the world China Miéville created for his three Bas-Lag novels (Perdido Street Station/The Scar/Iron Council). Something similar to the Elder Scroll games with an...

Re: From Software's next game

Looks like we're actually gonna get to try this game for ourselves sometime next year: http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3176667

Maybe the recent success of Demon's Souls had a hand in this?...

Re: Is Sony planning on bringing PS2 BC to PS3?

I've seen a lot of hate on various boards for the idea of downloadable PS2 games on PSN. Personally, i'm looking forward to the idea. There are still a ton of PS2 games I haven't played, and it'd be...
