Hello, the names Reno Takamiya, but everyone just calls me Reno.

I'm 20 years old and I've been gaming for a while. I own a PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, Tablet, PS Vita, Nintendo 2DS and PC.

My Philosophy is: "To never limit my gaming experience." That means, that I'll end up purchasing each new handheld/console that ends up released at one point, or another.

P.S. The Console Wars are dumb.

Then you've got people like Chris Lightfellow who thinks she's all hot s**t because she plays hentai games all the time. And of course, all the PC gamers who can't play one game without needing to download the good ol' Boobs 'n' Lightsabers for it to keep their interest for more than ten minutes.

Then Pokken Tournament comes out and he'll call it Tekken with a Pokemon coat of paint? That is a bit ironic. And is it me, or does the VGD seem to specialize in irony/hypocrisy?

Also, ramble time: I'm getting real tired of these Octodad/Jurassic Park Trespasser-esque games that pop up on Steam, then friggin' PewDiePie and whatnot j**z all over it, make it stupidly popular, and then everyone else proceeds to capitalize on the hype for that extra cash, so half my subbox on YouTube is full of crap about the game. The latest one to appear is I Am Bread made by the same people behind Surgeon Simulator, so it's no wonder why everyone's going on about it. I'm just surprised they didn't call it "Bread Simulator." It's just like the whole gory fighting game fad that was around when Mortal Kombat first came out, and is as bad as the generic jumpscare-infested horror game fad that refuses to die.

Ah, so he's one of those salt-spewing gamers that call games bad if he can't win at them, no wonder why he went all slap-happy on me! Granted, I also have a habit of blaming the game for my mistakes, but hey, at least I actually admit these kinds of things.

Yeah, people play Pokemon like it's a competitive sport nowadays, which is why I compared it to how most people play Dota. Still, it saddens me that we can't seem to play the game the way we want to anymore without someone whipping out their internet flamethrowers and burning us alive. I dislike how most people rely on Smogon for everything when it comes to playing Pokemon, even if it's simply playing through the main story. I can see EV training being useful in something like a Nuzlocke challenge, where you have an incredibly limited amount of Pokemon, but otherwise, it's not mandatory. It's bad enough they made it a bit easier and less monotonous by adding in the Super Training system, which I found to be better and more fun than fighting the same level 10 Pokemon over and over again to see the ATT stat grow very slowly.

That's a thing I've noticed in a lot of Tales games, the first real boss fight in each of them are usually pretty difficult unless you grind like crazy beforehand. I remember the fight with Batista (I think it was) in Tales of Destiny costing me like 9/10ths of my healing items and a whole buttload of luck. It's still a massive stretch to compare Gattuso to the entirety of Dark Souls.

A wild competitive douchebag appeared!

This is one of the reasons why I don't post in the Pokeforum a whole lot, half of everyone there is a bunch of arrogant douchebags who play Pokemon on a competitive level and have nothing better to do than to unleash their keyboard warrior fury on anyone who doesn't agree with their opinions.

Hasn't fly always been one of the later HMs you get to use and you have to visit places before you can fly them so you can't really avoid swimming altogether.
It speeds it up, sure, but it doesn't prevent it from being super annoying. It wouldn't be so bad if it worked like grass and only at certain points you could get into a fight, but all of the water is "tall grass" and 90% of the encounters are against Zubats of the sea.
PS3 and Vita are the only consoles where their features were a big part of the decision of getting them. I didn't have a blu-ray player prior to PS3 and one of the reasons I wanted Vita was the remote play.
Though it's really awkward for me to use back panel for L/R2 and 3 buttons since Vita doesn't have actual buttons for them.
I had more games on my mind when I got PS3 than TLOU as well, though I never got around playing any of them.

They would, a lot of people can't wait a year or even couple of months. That's why anyone bought Smash Bros for 3DS or any Capcom fighter ever.
Many of the remasters also doubles as the complete editions that comes at the end of games life cycle and neither versions see much else than bug fixes.
Not much more to say about the subject.

Most people aren't upgrading from a PSP knowing what that system ended up being like. Only games I knew on PSP were Loco Roco, Patapon, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts and Metal Gear Solids. They're from Japanese developers sure, but not excessively Japanese games.
People expect to get the full buffet with something to everyone's taste like all other platforms. I think it's a fair assumption since that is the recipe for success and one would think they want to succeed. With small target audience comes small sales.
Not over here, I've never seen a retail store with a single sold Vita.

Even with physicals that's pretty impressive. Single install seems to easily be over a gig.
I wish they would have more themes on PSN or resource packs that you could get bunch of icons to chose from to customize as much as you'd like.
Oh yeah, I meant to comment on that as well, but rushed the end of the PM. It works, but Sony still has a long way to go with user interfaces, PSN especially I think is pretty dreadful.
I really do like the way you close applications and how many apps you can have open. It's bit stupid that folders have limited space, first thing I did was move all the apps I likely won't need to a folder and couldn't fit them in one.

Crystal was my favorite for a long time, might still be. Really liked Yellow as well, though my copy broke long time ago. Suicune was also my favorite Pokemon for a long time.
One thing that I remember noticing in Generation 3 for the first time was that how much you needed the HMs. Don't remember first two being quite as bad and certainly don't remember having a flatout HM slaves on my party.
I wouldn't mind the water if I didn't have to cross it. My problems starts when you have to surf and midway through your trip you realize you forgot to restock on repels.
Soar looks pretty fun.

Yeah, makes sense. I don't really have a rule for buying consoles. Until last couple of years only console I had bought myself was Gamecube and others had been presents.
PS3 I bought for The Last of Us and Blu-Ray player. 3DS XL, Wii U and PS4 I bought knowing that they will someday be worth it and it wasn't guaranteed that I could afford them when I would really need them for something. So far I've been happy to have them.

I'm not quite sure what you're getting it, of course people will prefer the better version on next-gen. That's what I'm saying and why these games keep coming up. Even with the last-gen version still being updated, for someone who would have access to both generations there would be zero reason to get the inferior version.
They're the only ones because they're the first consoles to spawn during the remaster boom, so it's only natural.

I don't have much more to say about that. Though I don't see there not being enough western games for "dude bros" being a big part of the problem. 3DS has even less such games, but it's not struggling like Vita anymore.

@PSN message: Oh wow, you managing with only 4 GB is pretty impressive. What theme are you using? At least on our end PSN only has couple themes, mine is called "Four Seasons". It's the only one I like because system app icons are black and gold, so they shouldn't look too awkward even if I end up using a custom background. Yeah, 64GB cards are only out in Japan, I ordered one though doubt I'll see it sooner than few weeks. Kind of regret wasting money on the 16GB now, I imagined that I would've been able to get by with it much longer. If you need one I can sell it or 8GB one to you if shipping isn't too expensive / pain in the arse for it to be worth it.

Oh okay, they were numbered so I thought that was a sign of them being in order.
Honestly was pretty exciting for a moment to think that PSV original would've challenged P4G's reputation as the best PSV title.
I know what Danganronpa is, I was asking out of curiosity to see where you would place it on PSV ranks. I've heard a lot of people say it's one of their favorites.
I ordered Playstation Vita, Muramasa and Persona 4 Golden. And something that I wasn't expecting, Senran Kagura Shinovi vs. Let's Get Physical Limited Edition.
I was feeling that 8GB would be too little, but getting a bigger memory card needs to wait for now.
Have you played Hatsune Miku games?

Yeah. I came by Vitas while going through some online stores and got stuck at wondering if I should buy it.
PS Vita (Lite/2000) Adventure Mega Pack is 169,95€ and comes with downloads for Tearaway, Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Escape Plan & TxK.
So for around 200 euros I could get that and finally get Persona 4 Golden and Muramasa which has been on my wishlist for a long time.
Thanks for the list, need to look into some of those games. Woah, you really think that Freedom Wars tops P4G as the best Vita game?
Have you played Soul Sacrifice or Danganronpa? Would 8GB Memory Card actually be useful or should it be upgraded right away?

I also apologize for the second comment in a row, but...

Game of the Year: Dragon Age: Inquisition - Like I said in the last comment, people go nuts over Bioware RPGs, but I'm surprised it isn't ******** Dark Souls II. I can hear all the fanboys screaming in murder right now.
Best performance: Trey Parker, South Park: The Stick of Truth - Well, he IS the creator of the show, who also voices many of the characters in it. So of course there'll be a good performance.
Best online experience: Destiny - Watch all the Borderlands fanboys cry about this.
Best score: Destiny - Oooooohhhh, generic orchestral music! To be honest, I'm biased about old synthesized game music, instead of the typical orchestral crap that tends to put me to sleep.
Trending Gamer: Total Biscuit - Because nothing's better than a British man whining about games not running at ridiculously high framerates on his massive washing machine-sized gaming rig.
Composition Award: Martin O'Donnell - ...Who?
Best mobile game: Hearthstone - I hated card-based games since I played Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, and the time I tried getting into Yugioh and failed miserably because I got afraid of the horrifying consequence of having to dedicate my ENTIRE LIFE to the game to get good at it. (Heh. sounds like the entire MOBA genre.)
Best fighting game: Smash Bros Wii U - Not surprised, it's ******** Smash Bros. for goodness sake.
Industry Icon: Roberta and Ken Williams - ...Who?
Developer of the year: Nintendo - Also not surprised about this, they got E3 by the a** this year and everything.
Best eSports: Matthew 'NaDeSHoT' Haag - ...Who?
Best sports or racing game: Mario Kart 8 - Also not surprised.
Best Remaster: GTA V - You know, GTA V on PS4 doesn't look a whole lot different than the PS3 version. I think it's because I'm not desperately trying to compare the graphics of those two versions, like "HOLY ********, THAT ROCK'S TEXTURE IS ABOUT 5% BIGGER!!"
Best shooter: Far Cry 4 - What a surprise, the 800th or so iteration in this rehashed mess of a ser--wait, it's NOT Call of Duty!?
Game for change: Valiant Hearts - Of course, can't have a GoTY list without a feels simulator thrown in somewhere.
Best narrative: Valiant Hearts - Hang on, TWICE?? That's not fair! ...Oh wait, they did it with Destiny, too.
Best action game: Shadows of Mordor - That game to me looks rather bland and I don't know why. It looks like Assassin's Creed set in Middle Earth and without climbing on buildings and diving into hay bales from a hundred feet above.
Best Indie Game: Shovel Knight - Good, it's Shovel Knight, and not Five Nights at Freddy's.

-Sticks Out Tongue- R.I.P Elizabeth (Lizzie) Marie. 1997-2014

The pumpkin that I carved for Halloween 2014. The design is of Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Solid franchise. It only took me about 3 hours in total, but it was well worth it, and it came out better than I thought it would.
