@  acceptance : (04 October 2018 - 02:34 AM) TOV Definitive Edition has me pretty hyped up for the franchise right now.
@  acceptance : (04 October 2018 - 02:30 AM) Its been a while since I've been this excited to play a tales game lolol
@  acceptance : (04 October 2018 - 02:28 AM) I'm finally playing Tales of the Abyss on the PS2 and it reminds me of the first time I played symphonia. I'm loving this game!
@  xcrash1998 : (21 September 2018 - 05:46 PM) I like games that actually reward you for reaching more difficult objectives.
A good example would be the golden ballon in Super Mario Oddisey it more like a trophy and less like an in game side note of what you did.
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:13 AM) but like yeah I get more trophies/achievements in games that I just happened to play more bcuz the game itself was fun or w/e and it's like oh ok i also will get these things just through doing the stuff i wanted to do anyway, that's cool i guess lol
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:08 AM) like they don't rly hurt but they aren't something of particular value, it's kinda like a fancy alert with a title that tells u u did a thing, it's not bad but im not rly one to go out of my way to obtain the validation of a video game through something that can usually just be done via spending enough time/effort on it

(getting to like the top X% of a competitive multiplayer game or smth would be a diff story, but in that case i wouldn't even want an achievement, i feel like just getting there should feel rewarding in itself, so... yeah, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:07 AM) yeah I'm not a trophy/achievement guy lol
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:35 PM) That's just not incentive enough for me, man.
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:34 PM) Plus with modern gaming a lot of the time the most you can hope for if you get all the collectibles is a trophy/achievement. Which I suppose is valuable to some people, but it's not gonna add anything to the game whatsoever.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:58 PM) like yeah sidequests with an actual crafted scenario to them, post-game dungeons that aren't TOO much grinding/rehashed content, etc. are cool
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:57 PM) yeah I only like completionist stuff if it's like meaningful content/not super grindy but usually at some point it becomes kind of annoying so meh
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:01 AM) Gotta love unforgivingly difficult super bosses. (Looking at you, Lingering Will.)

Due to issues with the current host (including the recent downtime), I am switching to a different host.

 

In doing so I will need to migrate over the entire site, forums, etc., and this means:

 

1) There will inevitably be some downtime at some points

 

2) Any posts or such made after the forum back-up is taken but before the forums are migrated will likely be lost

 

To help prevent #2, I may turn the forums offline before I take a final back-up.

 

Feel free to ask any questions, and thank you kindly for your understanding and support.

UPDATE:

OK, so I've been struggling for several, maybe even a dozen hours over the past few days, but I think I've finally gotten everything in decent working order.

 

It wasn't easy: I've looked at like, dozens of page online, opened up 4 support tickets, imported databases multiple times, made so many small little adjustments to things, backed things up, waited for uploads and downloads and converters and importers and UADASOIDUJAISOUDUASDIOA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH IT WAS SUCH A PAIIIIIIINNN

 

but the old host was really, really poor, apparently had a 1-star rating according to what Blue Leafeon said, lol

 

*googles*

wow they weren't kidding

 

so yeah, I upgraded to a slightly better host that should have more uptime and shouldn't randomly try to shut down my site and should hopefully actually respond to tickets with some small level of intelligence (though their responses so far weren't super helpful, but at least they were something of some small substance, lol)

 

ANYWAY

 

Thank you for your patience and sorry that the site was up/down (mostly down) over the few days, and also sorry if anyone posted stuff or the like and it was lost: I know some shouts were lost but it couldn't really be helped as I had to delete the forums database and then try to re-import it from the back-up at least a couple times, so yeah.
