@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:
Kyle Stepp @espigaJun 08, 2014
Finished Neptunia Re;Birth1 last night. Now it's time for Chou Megami Shinkou Noire Gekishin Black Heart.
Kyle Stepp @espigaJun 06, 2014
"I'll just play a little Neptunia before bed."'s now almost 6 am. Good night. x_x
Kyle Stepp @espigaJun 04, 2014
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 progress: most of the way through chapter 4, just recruited MAGES. She's actually not a dlc character this time!
Kyle Stepp @espigaJun 01, 2014
Chou Megami Shinkou Noire Geikishin Black Heart is going to arrive tomorrow... But I don't know whether to play that after finishing Neptunia Re;Birth1 or if I should play Drakengard 3 instead. =[
Kyle Stepp @espigaMay 28, 2014
@honestgamer It's on Vita. Comes out in a month or two here in the States, so I figured I'd better bust out my JP copy.
Kyle Stepp @espigaMay 28, 2014
Started playing Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1. It fixes nearly every issue I took with the original HN game, and made the worst game in the series into a surprisingly good one.
Kyle Stepp @espigaMay 27, 2014
Some food for thought regarding Venter's recent changes to the site: vs. ...Please standardize your counting methods, Jason. =[
Kyle Stepp @espigaMay 27, 2014
...when applicable, while still using the HG Advertisement as part of your normal ad rotation. That way, even people who are blocking ads would still see the recruitment effort.
Kyle Stepp @espigaMay 27, 2014
@honestgamer Which, by the way, seems to use the same code as your ad script, so it seems like my AdBlock is blocking it. Perhaps you could code it as a background image in a standard-sized table or something, with the ad displaying over it (moar...)
Kyle Stepp @espigaMay 23, 2014
I was excited when I saw there was a new Suskie review today. Then I saw it was for Batman and not Miku.=[
Kyle Stepp @espigaMay 13, 2014
@zippdementia The best part of the NES Zeldas was that you had to go out and explore shit. That's been lacking in all of the later titles. Although Link Between Worlds brought it back to some extent... It still marked every dungeon on the map.
Kyle Stepp @espigaMay 10, 2014
I hadn't watched Ranma 1/2 before recently, but it's rapidly becoming one of my favorite anime.
Kyle Stepp @espigaMay 08, 2014
Kyle Stepp @espigaApr 28, 2014
@honestgamer I seem to recall someone (was it Suskie?) coining the term "asscam" tp describe how NG's camera is focused on Ryu's glutes. Not terribly surprising considering the game's pedigree, but it's a problem when it interferes with gameplay
Kyle Stepp @espigaApr 15, 2014
So SEGA released a game for smartphones called Phantasy Star Online 2es. As a standalone game, it's pretty meh, but viewed as a companion to the "real" game on pc/vita, it's pretty cool.
Kyle Stepp @espigaApr 01, 2014
Hatsune Miku Project DIVA F 2nd Second Impressions: Unsurprisingly, I'm a lot better at the songs which are rehashed from past games.
Kyle Stepp @espigaMar 31, 2014
Hatsune Miku Project Diva F2nd first impressions: changing modules is still cumbersome. =[ But modules from the original game are automatically imported, a very cool touch.
Kyle Stepp @espigaMar 25, 2014 FUCK YES SON
Kyle Stepp @espigaMar 17, 2014
FFXIV has officially failed to hold my interest, so I guess it's Phantasy Star Online 2 as my rpg crack of choice. No surprises there!
Kyle Stepp @espigaMar 08, 2014
@honestgamer @wolfqueen001 @pickhut
Kyle Stepp @espigaFeb 20, 2014
@Ben @honestgamer @jerec It's loading fine for me on Android.
Kyle Stepp @espigaFeb 12, 2014
Bravely Default progress: All it took for the Final Fantasy series to become awesome again was to lose the brand.
Kyle Stepp @espigaFeb 08, 2014
@zippdementia @JoeTheDestroyer @holdthephone I don't think old Dante was unlikable; he was extremely cheesy yet endearing in that b-movie sort of way. Campy and over the top, but fun. New Dante just says fuck a lot.
Kyle Stepp @espigaFeb 07, 2014
@zippdementia @holdthephone @JoeTheDestroyer I have no opinion of DmC since I've not played it, but new Dante is an unlikable ass.
