Nice, what karate style you using

White demon for now

I would agree that the combat difficulty is fiddly,however,the game was the result of a console port so the clucky combat is to be expected

I'm fine with how the combat itself is. It can be janky, sure, but a game is more fun when every encounter is a challenge than if there's no challenge at all.

I'm reminded of one of the Penny Arcade Rainslick episodes, can't remember which. It has a jrpg style, except items are x number of uses per battle instead of use once only and hp/mp/whatever automatically recovers after each fight, which in turn allows the game to throw everything it can at you each battle, and force you to work for each one and use everything you have access to rather than the typical grind. It's a great design, but that level of challenge without a convenient way of refilling lost resources means a huge amount of downtime inbetween challenges, which in turn makes it feel a lot more boring than it should be. Jade Empire has almost a great system, but falls short in one key area imho.

I liked it, the combo  type stuff was neat.

Bang them both.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Picked up Personal Trainer: Cooking on the cheap at the store.

It's a really great digital cookbook on the DS. If you like goofy things like this and want to learn some neat recipes, give it a try! Fun time. :D

Rocket League! Also Project X Zone on my 3DS, though I have no idea who half the roster is.

In my continuing quest to find and master every 'turn your own music into levels' game out there, I've picked up Drive Any Track and Polynomial. I have yet to actually play either, but I will soon.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Yeah. It turns out it's really just a playable visualizer with a kind of boring shooter game tacked on. Worth a few bucks if you really like music visualizers, but not for me. Drive Any Track is fun, if unfinished.

It has some cool mechanics but eventually hits a fairly hefty paywall if I remember right. Also kind of forces you into a separate grind for pvp, nothing you have in pve carries over, which is no fun.

I just finally picked up Xrd Sign on Steam. Thirteen hours later, I can no longer feel my thumbs.

So I've been playing Final fantasy IX since its on steam now

Overall it's really decent port with a few issues that are largely the result of porting  a 16 year old PlayStation title.I recall some people saying that it was too easy compared to the previous two,which I agree with,that and the scripted battles where you lose anyway are a pain
