So like, I love love love a game called Dark Clou-

DARK MUTHAFUCKIN' CLOUD. And if it's related to your first sentence, then we discovered it in similar ways. My Aunt bought it out of the blue and surprised me with it at home, and I looked at it quizzically before shrugging my shoulders and tossing it in the PS2. I became instantly addicted to the music, gameplay and town-building. Now that I'm older I appreciate even more things about it, some less... Innocent, (Toan's butt. <3) but others are simply things I didn't wrap my head around as much, like the weapon building mechanics.

DC2 was definitely amazing as well, although I can't go back to the dubbed version of it anymore... Max's Japanese voice is just too damn cute compared to Scott Menville. I've got an undub sitting on my computer that I play with PCSX2, but I've been taking a break from it.

KINDRED SPIRITS, UNF. Radiata Stories was awesome but I have a real love-hate relationship with it. On the one hand it's one of my favorite RPGs ever, but on the other hand the big endgame-changing decision you have to make completely ruins the experience for me. I can't bring myself to play it again because all of my love for it gets destroyed by being forced to choose between the better ending while locked out of the awesome main city, or access to said city but a worse ending. When I was younger I thought, "Eh, I'm sure once I beat the game I can have access to everything again." and never ended up beating that Silver Dragon dude.
Welp, fast forward several years to me being more gaming savvy thanks to the Internet and I decide to look into it, only to find out "HAHAHA, NOPE, YOU'RE STUCK WITH WHATEVER SIDE YOU CHOOSE UNTIL NG+."
If they just gave Radiata Stories a post-game like Disgaea I'd still play it to this day. :C

You and me both, but if you haven't already try out White Knight Chronicles by the same company. It's not similar enough to call a spiritual successor but a lot of the world and characters have a somewhat Dark Cloud feel to them, and the online mode features a Georama system.

YOU JUST MADE MY DAY FOR REAL

I have a good chunk of Dark cloud music on my ipod xD I had played it when I was real little so at first I hadn't gotten very far past the jungle, but I put it back in when I was a bit older and when I heard that opening song my heart just melted. that opening sequence, and the music box theme, I could just die with music happy. I beat it around that time too, I just, UGH i love that game so much.

and yeah it was one of the random games my parents bought me xD

I should check out the japanese dubs then. All i think of is robin from teen titans when Max speaks xD


OH IKR ABOUT RADIATA!!! I thought that was kinda cool though, it was a really emotional decision. Because I freaking loved that town. I loved all of the environments. and how Jacks situation was constantly changing, it was really striking to me. I think thats what really made it stand out in my mind.


I should try this white knight chronicles. Is it for the PS3? I really do love Level 5 games, or at least the ones I've happened to have played, so yeah. GEORAMAAAAAAA so much time making the towns pretty and perfect 0.0 xD

Yep yep, PS3 exclusive. Make sure you go straight to buying White Knight Chronicles II though, because it contains a "remastered" version of the first game in it's entirety on top of the sequel.

Just one game: Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri with expansion xD

I just found my old disks in the garage a while back, and it makes me wonder two things: why havent Sid Meier made a remake yet, and did the creators of Eureka Seven play the game before creating the series?

One of my favorite DS games ever since I was little is this weird little game called Magical Starsign. I've never met anyone who's actually played it before, but it's really cute and fun and I still play it now!

I have no idea why I didn't respond to this, but I played the beta of the first level. It was fun but buggy.

Anyone who likes wrastlin' and has access to a PS2/PS3+PSN/Emulator needs to play a gem I recently uncovered called Fire Pro Wrestling Returns;

O: you and me Hugo? We're friends now.

Alpha Centauri was the best game, probably my favorite thing from Sid Meier.

I want to try it, but I'd rather a remake. But right now, Civ 4 is the greatest thing from Meier, which only took 3rd place because 3 had some really retarded stuff regards to corruption.
