So yea, I started playing Schala's GOTY a few hours ago:

I'm taking Schala and Noi's word for it, but at $10 I finally decided to try it out for myself. It's pretty OK thus far. Right away the game has a few pluses, such as skippable cutscenes and a save anywhere function; Drippy is friggin' awesome, too. The battle system is very... intriguing, to say the least. It tries to blend ARPG-style gameplay with some turn-based mechanics, and while sometimes it works and can be fun, other times it's kinda lackluster. Biggest downsides are Oliver's running speed in the world map (though I fragment reading that there may be a fix for that) and that enemies have the sight of fucking hawks. I mean, seriously, halfway across the map they can see me and automatically rush towards me. Doesn't help that there are too many enemies on the world map, too. Overall still rather positive but I'm waiting for the worst to come.

Also, this:

Soon, it will be SoNicGAF no Kuni! *maniacal laughter*

See, it feels fine when you do start up the game, and then it gets repetitive and then you realize the combat is just so disorderly that you wonder if anyone anywhere QA'd it. Then again, you do have people who didn't seem to have a problem with the combat system, so they probably aren't as picky. So you might end up liking it towards the end.

I know you'd mentioned The Guided Fate Paradox, so let me know how that is because I was thinking of picking it up along the line.

Happy birthday Pietepiet!

I still have to try my brother's copy of Revengeance, but I'm pretty sure I know what my GOTY is. I have to say, this has been a fantastic year for FPS games; Shadow Warrior, Rise of the Triad, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. What a wonderful bunch of games. There's a ton of stuff I'd love to play before the end of the year. ALBW sounds incredible, but...I've never finished LTTP... Should probably do that first >_>

Is there a list of SonicGAF NNID around? I haven't got a Wii U so this is my first time using Miiverse and I'd like to follow everyone.
Bravely Default is all I'm playing at the moment aside from Professor Layton daily puzzles.

Speaking of which, could I add your JP 3DS to my friends list Schala, so I could summon your Bravely Default character and use the abilink thing?

My NNID is SeventhForce for my US 3DS. I dunno if it can be added, but the one for my JP 3DS is Blaze627.

That reminds me, I need to go and buy For the Sequel. I imported the vanilla release a while back, but there's no real reason to continue that, or to wait for the US release when FtS has the localization already included.

Yeah, sure. I'll PM it to you in a sec since I finally made a Japanese Square Enix account.. I'll add your FC to mine since I have it on the other 3DS. I'm not too far along in terms of levels because exams (and because I turned EXP off + Hard mode because I wanted to see how it'd be like), but I'll keep updating my data so you can keep getting better attacks.

I might get the NA version of BD:FtS to play alongside those who are getting it in the US because I'm having too much fun with the game so far. But I was told that I probably shouldn't bother since I can use my data from this version and exchange it with anyone playing the NA version if they'd like to add my JP 3DS FC.

It has "Sonic" in there, so it counts. :V

In all seriousness, Doom has some of the most iconic VGM in the medium, and a lot of composers seemed to have taken a lot of notes from it. Much like a lot of devs took notes from the game itself. The game was truly revolutionary.

Thanks, I'm not sure what that second friend code you sent me was though since you just have to be 3DS friends and then the game scans your system's friends list when you update. I'll make sure to use the send function in battle whenever I use a special move so you can get some good attacks too.
And yeah, unless the NA is different for some reason then your JP data should work with people playing in America since it works on my UK version and I have guest data from all around Europe so there doesn't seem to be a region or language block.

I think the Bravely Code is just a Square Enix Members JP thing, then. Do you guys have stat tracking for EU Square Enix Members like the JP site does? I also tested the whole "file upload to server, then download file from server" thing which is great. I love that just in case my data gets lost or something I can just download it back from the server.

I don't think we do.
The game isn't even listed on Square's European site which is kinda weird, even if the game is published by Nintendo Europe here. The only European site I can find is NoE's microsite for it.
What does that file uploading thing do then? Is it just for backing up saves and/or transferring your save from the first version of the game?

I don't know if the EU version's start screen has these four options:



First option is to sync your SEM JP profile with the game and get your Bravely Code.
Second option is to copy file.
Third option is to delete file.
Last option is to get your save that you uploaded to the BD:FtS site (ie: your last uploaded data when you synced w/server).

You should probably have the second and third options at the least. Apparently not? I dunno.

The game I expected to be kinda 'eh' on was Mario and that one blew my expectations away.
