I'm glad Yiazmat from Final Fantasy 12 got a few mentions, it's the only FF super boss I've ever given up on. Whoever decided that he should have the Death status attached to his regular melee attacks needs a good slap in the face. SO monotonous having to constantly revive and reapply buffs.

On the other end of the spectrum, I really like the boss fights in FF 6. They don't have much health, but they can still dish out an ass whooping. It makes the fights really intense and they don't overstay their welcome.

Just started the game yesterday, and I've noticed that I tend to lose all of the Guard that I've accumulated whenever I'm struck from behind. Does a flanking attack automatically remove all Guard, or does the damage bonus just so happen to be enough to knock it off every time?

In either case, would Bears Maul the Wolves eliminate this problem for me?

If Patrick of all people didn't feel the need to bring it up, then there likely isn't an issue at all.

The animations seem vastly improved so far, which is the main thing I've wanted addressed for quite some time now. It would be nice to see more than 3 moves, though.

I feel like a lot of people are showing their ass in this thread. Three or four people seemed genuinely interested in subscribing to this thing, but everyone else just seems pissy that they didn't get to personally turn it down.

I'm glad Sony turned it down, myself, even if it was only for their own interests (fairly likely). I already hate preorder bonuses and retailer exclusives, I can only imagine what sort of shenanigans publishers will eventually be up to with their own subscription services, not to mention that this currently looks like a bad deal to me regardless.

There were rumors a few months back that Undertaker had requested to work with Daniel Bryan this year. I wonder if this is the reason why? Perhaps Taker knew that he wanted the streak to end this year, and Bryan was the one he wanted to give it to. Unfortunately the main event needed Bryan in order to be interesting, and I suppose WWE wanted a big match for Lesnar to justify his price tag, so they put him with Taker. I wonder what the reaction would have been to Daniel Bryan ending the streak?

Rubbing alcohol with q-tips and a can of air seems to have done the trick! Thanks for your help, guys!

I got one of these bad boys for Christmas:

Many of my old games (that have been lying around for 15 years or more) however, don't seem to work, and I'd like to clean them to see if that will help. I've seen different suggestions such as rubbing alcohol or window cleaner, but I wanted to ask you guys what the best way to clean a cartridge is without risking damage!

I believe it will be the 3DS, unfortunately, especially if you factor in Japanese sales. It seems that the Wii U has developed a bit of a stigma as being an undesirable console, and will have a hard time picking up steam even after it gains a few killer apps.

I personally can't wait to play the console version of this.
