lol are you seriously new to the concept that you pay premium from day-1 access to something?
MS quite correctly assumes that pretty much anyone (who isn't 13) who really, really wanted Halo 5 would have it already. This sale is to lure in those on the fence who wouldn't drop $250, and it's a special one day sale thing so again it's to drum up added excitement. That extra dough that people spent on Halo 5 at launch went towards...having Halo 5 at launch. I don't sound like a dick here, but this isn't a new concept. Any game can be bought for $60-80 new, but six months down the road, you can buy said game used for $10-25. Why? because it's no longer day 1. It's just how things work, and I see that as a good thing as I end up buying many games I wouldn't if they were $60 each every single time.
I could understand if this was a fan-fic thing on deviantart or something......but this is officially produced by Idea Factory and voiced by Rie Tanaka, Asami Imai, Rina Sato and Kana Asumi. It's that fact that just boggles the mind. Even as a fan this makes me feel super award to listen to. The whole "Anata...o - ki - ru~♥" made me just go NOPE DONE WITH THIS EVEN AS A FAN.
The 1990s were a decade of massive significant change in the game industry with radically different hardware at the start of the decade compared to the end of it. And more importantly, at the end of the decade, game genres existed that didn't before it and genres before it had retired from the limelight. While I would also feel this way about the period between 2000 to 2009, the absolute difference in game evolution wasn't nearly as drastic, with many sixth generation games feeling just as modern as games we see on 8th gen consoles as far as their game design are concerned. At the start of the decade you had the peak of the Famicom/NES and at the end was the peak of N64, the solid market leader position for the PS1 and raise of Dreamcast. That leap going from third to fifth generation saw too many changes in technology, format, capability and design to be summerized in a "game of the decade" type format.
As I said, I completely reject this. Not to mention that this list ignores many, many excellent games. If I was going to vote, it would be for Mega Man X(1), but Compeau didn't add it and this atb goes against all the points I already stated.
OOhhh....damnit I'm intrigued even though it's a hefty digital download only for PSP meaning I can't get it physically and even if i could, it would be on PSP and useless for Vita. Question: Does the game require you to know the story of the first Trails in the Sky game (the one that came out physically on PSP)? I'd like to check it out, but I didn't play through the first game and don't want to not know what's going on.
Just in case it helps anyone out who didn't put much into Charisma S.P.E.C.I.A.L stat, keep in mind you can augment your stats by wearing particular articles of clothing. Early on I was failing speech checks left and right, but now I keep a set of clothing that boosts my charisma +4. That means a dress, a hat, and stylish sunglasses. This getup only costs a small amount of weight so it's useful to keep in your inventory at all times and switch to it whenever given a speech check. Keep in mind in Fallout 4 you're not locked into conversations. If there's a speech check and you're not in your Charisma boosting get up, simply look away from the person and bring up your pip boy and change. If the speech check is red, it might also be a good idea to save. That way, if you fail the speech check, simply reload and try again.
