I think the whole trading card thing is a waste of time to begin with. If I can't get ALL the cards by playing my games, then I'm not going to barter, trade or buy any others. It's all too much work for little to no return. This auction seems to continue that worthless exercise.

Alicia Melchiott from Valkyria Chronicles comes to mind. She's not a badass but a kind but resolute young woman called to duty when her homeland is invaded.

I also really like Bianca from Dragon Quest V. What I find interesting about her is that she's a mother (well, becomes one over the course of the game). You don't find that characteristic in too many video game heroines. In a sense, this could apply to Nera or Debora, but Bianca's the one I liked the most. She had spunk.

I can't even get the game to run. I was encountering the crash-after-intro issue that then turned into crash at character creation screen. I tried several of the workarounds but with no success. The game is just broken for me and it leaves me disgruntled by the current climate and quality of games being sold.

A proper Dragon Quest single player RPG with all the familiar trappings and game play. I do not want an MMO or co-op game. I want something with an epic story, entertainingly chatty characters, mildly offensive humor and enough options to keep me interested for 40 to 60 hours. They really haven't made a proper DQ game since 8 and that came out 2004. Time to get back to basics.

Knights of the Old Republic III

This for the same reasons above. I enjoyed the Old Republic but because it was an MMO it lacked a focused story and I found it too easy to get distracted by common MMO features. KOTOR 1 is still my favorite game of all time, so I would like nothing more than a straight-up single-player RPG sequel (three-quel?) to the original.

Finally, I would love a third Dark Cloud game. The mix of dungeon crawl, town building and action-combat set this one apart from the usual (see DQ) JRPG's of the PS2 era. There was a movement on (*shrug*) Facebook to get a Dark Cloud 3 made and there is a report that Akihito Hino of Level5 has stated there will be Dark Cloud 3 in 2015. I don't have much faith in any of these "possibilities", but I do want to believe.

  1. PS4
  2. XBO
  3. PS3

I have a PC, too that I game on a lot but I did not count it since it is not "hooked up" to my TV. I also did not count any portables/tablets for the same reason.

I am almost ashamed to say it, but I wish I'd said something crueler so that Jaffe could call me out, too. Where's my 15 seconds of fame?

(the farther you go into the future, the harder it is to refute).

I don't have a problem when a game is delayed to give it some polish and weed out the bugs. What troubles me is when a game is delayed three to six months and it turns out to be a buggy mess. What's the point then?

Still, this postponement doesn't bother me.

My choice would be Neil Gaiman's Books of Magic (the original "Harry Potter").

White males need not apply, am I right?
