If you want to play some Smash Bros (and defeat me easily because I suck), send me a friend request. My NNID is Yongha.
Kyle Stepp @espigaNov 13, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer @Suskie Also a good lesson on why framerate is FAR more important than pretty visuals.
Kyle Stepp @espigaNov 12, 2014
Dragon Quest IV: Dropped the final boss, forgot how much of an endurance battle that guy is ; ; Time for the fifth!
Kyle Stepp @espigaNov 12, 2014
@honestgamer @Suskie The screenshot shows Xbox controller standards. (B to close the map instead of O, etc)
Kyle Stepp @espigaNov 09, 2014
Dragon Quest IV: Picked up the Zenithian pieces, except for the sword. That's today's project.
Kyle Stepp @espigaNov 06, 2014
@joseph_valencia It's a good setup, but I've played DQ4 more than I'd care to admit. So this time, I'm fucking around more than going for pure efficiency.
Kyle Stepp @espigaNov 05, 2014
Dragon Quest IV: Got the main crew I plan on using. Girl power!
Kyle Stepp @espigaNov 04, 2014
Dragon Quest IV: Powered through the first 4 chapters, got my Hero, and picked up the twins. All in all, a great run so far!
Kyle Stepp @espigaNov 03, 2014
Beat Dragon Quest III, now to start my favorite in the series, IV.
Kyle Stepp @espigaNov 03, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer @honestgamer @Germ @EmP Time for Jason to code a confirmation popup?
Kyle Stepp @espigaNov 02, 2014
@honestgamer @Suskie Not to mention the stuff I'm getting from.Japan... x_x
Kyle Stepp @espigaNov 02, 2014
PSA, mostly toward Suskie: Hatsune Miku Project Diva F2 comes out here around the 18th.of November.
Kyle Stepp @espigaNov 01, 2014
Dragon Quest 3: made it to he world of darkness... Spoiler alert for those that don't know how DQ3 is related to the first two:
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 31, 2014
@joseph_valencia I don't really care what sites are reporting. People on both sides of the fence are being assholes, despite the good some others may be doing. I just want to enjoy my games in peace without trying to appeal to some group or another.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 31, 2014
@espiga @Suskie Hypocrisy at its best: This whole thing seems to be about "journalistic accountability," then constant death threats and doxxing innocent sites that disclose everything happens... With zero accountability to the perp.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 31, 2014
@Suskie I'm sorry this happened to you, and to the people at your site. This is what happens when you put power in the hands of the mob with lanterns and pitchforks, regardless of what side of the issue's fence they sit.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 30, 2014
Dragon Quest 3: Killed Orochi and saved Jipang. That town's story was always my favorite part of the game.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 28, 2014
Dragon Quest 3: Game froze in Portugos and I lost about 2 hours of progress. Talk about a momentum killer for the day =[
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 27, 2014
Started DQ3 today, playing the SFC remake. This was the game that made me love the series, thanks to how it started to give each region its own little story within the overarching narrative. Future DQ games took that concept and used it to awesome effect.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 27, 2014
@overdrive My strategy consisted of throwing myself at everything until I died, then doing the walk of shame back. Stupid prince kept getting rocked by millions of dragons before the actual boss fights though...
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 27, 2014
@Suskie I've never even been in Philadelphia. =[ Did you buy anything from it?
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 26, 2014
@espiga @honestgamer I'll be starting DQ3 pretty soon, so if you need screenshots for that one, feel free to drop a line.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 26, 2014
@honestgamer If I'd have known, I would have grabbed screens for you. It'd really help with some of the more cryptic items like the sun crest or the dew for the water cloth.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 26, 2014
Dragon Quest progression: Finished DQ2 (Original NES version). I forgot how much of a slog those final areas are. X_X Ended up with my hero being Lv. 40-ish by the time I won.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 24, 2014
@Ben A big draw for the gba for me was backwards compatibility, and the sp added the needed backlight and rechargeable battery. The micro removed BC, so it fell off the radar there.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 21, 2014
@overdrive @joseph_valencia @honestgamer If people are interested, I could always write up a guide to get DQX's JP trial working.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 19, 2014
@espiga That said, this format lends itself very well to DQX as an online title, and the battle system has evolved beyond "bog standard" as a result of that.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 19, 2014
@zippdementia @overdrive I like the series because it's about the journey rather than the destination. It's collection of short stories contained in their own little world as you bounce from town to town.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 17, 2014
I recently played the free trial of Dragon Quest X online and it inspired me to give the rest of the series a replay. Spent all of today binging on the first. Finished it, and now my brain is tired.
Kyle Stepp @espigaOct 02, 2014
Some gaming progress: Finished Hyrule Warriors' story mode, 100% of which was broadcast on my Twitch channel if you wanna watch it. Started streaming Zone of the Enders tonight. Also checked out the JPonly free trial to Dragon Quest X. I like it.
Kyle Stepp @espigaSep 21, 2014
@Rasetsu I'd buy that. Picture the scene: a supermarket, filled with thousands of the same stocking boy, as you carve into them with a barrage of awkward sex jokes as Betty White.
Kyle Stepp @espigaSep 13, 2014
I'd be down for one of those smash codes if anyone is still offering.
Kyle Stepp @espigaSep 01, 2014
Anybody here a fan of Mega Man? I got a beta code for Inafune's newest game, Mighty No. 9. Check out my gameplay here:
Kyle Stepp @espigaAug 25, 2014
I was worried when I heard that Twitch was going to be acquired by Google, but now it's revealed that Amazon is getting them, I know they're in good hands.
Kyle Stepp @espigaAug 22, 2014
@pickhut I think that something a lot of people miss is that the intention of theae videos is not to be overly informative, but to be entertaining. If I want steely-faced reviews that dissect the merits of a game, I have HG.
Kyle Stepp @espigaAug 19, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer @jerec My own personal style is to Stream with friends watching and adding commentary via skype. The result is a humorous blend of game talk, random conversation, shit talking, and drunken belligerence.
Kyle Stepp @espigaAug 19, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer @jerec Also, it'd be nice for something to get a lot of hits, but also unrealistic. Everything is all about video content these days, which is why nearly everything I do now is video-based.
Kyle Stepp @espigaAug 17, 2014
@espiga The other 16 parts can be seen by checking out my channel and looking at the "highlights." It was a 4 and a half hour SH session last night, so I split it into 15 minute chunks to make things a bit more digestible.
Kyle Stepp @espigaAug 17, 2014
Playing through P.T. the other day gave me the inspiration to play the very first of the Silent Hill games, something I've never played before. Of course, I've documented the experience. Part 1 of 17 is here!
Kyle Stepp @espigaAug 15, 2014
@Suskie I played it last night, and had the good sense to stream it with my friends on Skype for all to enjoy:
Kyle Stepp @espigaJul 29, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer @wolfqueen001 @zippdementia @Germ @EmP Yeah, it wasn't me. My two cents though: I think MGS is stupid but fun in that B-movie way. Think Pacific Rim. Enjoyable, if you shut off your brain for a while.
Kyle Stepp @espigaJul 02, 2014
@Suskie @honestgamer I'm still waiting on that Project Diva f REVIEW *Ahem* Mr. Suskie! That said, totally pumped for Mirai 2!
Kyle Stepp @espigaJun 30, 2014
Shovel Knight: got a code for being a mighty no. 9 backer to make your knight jump really high. Meh/10. Also started playing Senran Kagura Burst. I like it but hope the stages start getting longer.
Kyle Stepp @espigaJun 27, 2014
Shovel Knight is pretty great, but a little too forgiving. I want Zelda 2-tier hard!
Kyle Stepp @espigaJun 23, 2014
@joseph_valencia Nowhere near 10k, let me assure you. Also, winning races tends to only net me inthe 20-ish of points. So, grinding up that many points will likely never happen.
Kyle Stepp @espigaJun 23, 2014
Drakengard 3: A game that I feel like I'm "supposed" to hate but it's way too cool for me to actually hate it. Mariokart 8: People online are still terrible. Maybe I'm just better at Mariokart than I thought.
Kyle Stepp @espigaJun 21, 2014
Mariokart 8 online first impressions: A lot of people really suck at Mariokart.
Kyle Stepp @espigaJun 16, 2014
There's been a power outage in my town since noonish...thank doge for PS Vita~
Kyle Stepp @espigaJun 14, 2014
They must be handing out those Destiny alpha codes like they're crack or something. I got one from sony and another from amazon, despite doing nothing regarding registering for it.
Kyle Stepp @espigaJun 10, 2014
So, of all the videos that's been posted over the past few days, the one that had me most hyped was this one from yesterday that was an e3 no-show:
