I've been on a weird kick where in the past week or so I've played through Symphony of the Night, Circle of The Moon, Aria of Sorrow and just started Dawn of Sorrow. Weirdly, I've never been a huge fan of the genre up until this past week. I played through Metroid and Super Metroid when I was a kid and didn't really feel much for them, same with more recent things like Shadow Complex. I think it was Ori and the Blind Forrest that really unlocked the genre for me, because I LOVED that game.

Out of the ones I've played recently though, I'd say Symphony Of The Night, though Dawn Of Sorrow has some fantastic design in it.

I have a mid 2011 iMac and it's mostly fine. It chugs for a bit on startup but once it settles in, it runs fairly well. I run it at 1920x1080 and medium settings. I will say that I've not played a ton of the game an as such haven't seen how the performance holds up with larger, sprawling cities. For the most part, it's the usual Mac port problems of long load times and just weird quirks.

Aw man, I was just at the one in Chelsea the other day. I was in town for Fashion Week (probably not a huge cross over here) and thought about heading out to Brooklyn but decided to stay in Manhattan. Maaaaaaaaan.

Hey duders. I, too, jumped in on the $10 deal. How could you say no? I'm helicopterspy.4528

I don't think I could pick a favorite piece of GB content but one of my favorite jokes comes from the New Super Mario Brothers Wii quicklook where Jeff wants him and Ryan to face left to ward off Boos and Brad and Vinny (Playing toads) to ward them off to the right and Brad replies saying "Pimps up, Toads down"

That TASbot total control madness was the craziest shit I've ever seen. I can't even begin to understand how you run Twitch chat through a super nintendo, but the fact that someone broke something beautiful for literally NO REASON except for something dumb is absolutely incredible.

So I think this game might be a different kind of broken on Xbox One. Matchmaking seems sorta boned, unless there's just no one playing it. I've played maybe 7 or 8 online matches and 3 have been completely busted. Two cases where my game crashed mid match and one case where the winner had his board filled almost the entire game, junk lines all the way up to the top and more jut some bug kept him from losing.

They also get new spells every few levels. What I've been doing (just wrapping up the first floor of the second dungeon) is stick with a sub-persona for a little bit until I can fuse it into something better, bring over the spells I like and use and keep it rolling from there. Choosing which spells you want to carry over when you fuse is a real game changer.

I didn't know the loot in chests was randomized. That explains a really crappy thing I had happen. Opened a chest, got blue Bow and some blue Rogue armor both better than I had on Sera. Then I fell through the world and had to roll back a save, got a shit belt out of the same chest. Uuuuggghhhh.

Yep. Strong reviews, great style, that boss fight in the quick look seemed like it was pretty great. Throw in a price drop and a white console that comes with the bundle? Time to dive into the next generation of video game playing.
