Which Ys? There are quite a few Yses. The first few ones only have one character...

I'm pretty sure you use all the characters all the time. Like, they follow you around and you switch between them.

So you aren't switching them around? Because I heard that you can only have two other person in the team... :o How about the EXP spread? Will the ones not in battle gain it?

Yeah, you have a 3 man team, each with different abilities. I don't know about the EXP in this game because I haven't played it, but last game I think everyone gained levels at the same rate. In Ys 7 you could switch people around and the bench guys gained, like, half exp (I think). I don't know if there'll even be bench members in Celceta, though, but again I haven't played it yet. BTW, just so we're clear: This is an Action RPG, with an extra emphasis on Action.

Well since this is the universal recommendations thread, I have a question to the fellow Nintendo fans here.

What would be the best case/pouch to buy for 3DS LL/XL?

I'm meaning the kind of case like this one for example where one can fit the console, a fair amount of cartridges and maybe even AR cards:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nintendo-Licensed-Hard-Pouch-Black/dp...

Do you have any opinions on which one would be the best since there are thousands of official licensed and unlicensed cases floating around the internet in amazon/ebay etc.

The only request I have is that it needs to be somewhat small, I wouldn't want it to be a huge carrying bag for example.

Would anyone recommend Shenmue I & II by modern standards? I'm thinking about getting them to increase my Dreamcast collection, but I don't know if they've aged well.

This isn't really a recommendation question, but I'm not sure where else to ask...

When it comes to the Android operating system, what's the difference between "Ice Cream Sandwich" & "Jelly Bean"?

Yes, definitely get both. Some of the finest games that Dreamcast had

ICS is Android 4.0, Jelly Bean is Android's 4.1 to 4.3. and JB makes Android work a lot faster because of Project Butter that was in it's code. There a lot of other small nice changes as well.

I recommend you guys watch 2 animes, one anime called "Lucky Star" and another called"The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" Just look them up on YouTube and watch them there.

I'm not a fan of either game, but I think Super Mario RPG is a far better game mechanically, and it'll last you much longer than World simply by the virtue of being an RPG. At the very least, I think Super Mario World will come to the Wii U sooner than RPG, so if you have that or plan to get one soon, you might save yourself a 1.50 upgrade charge if you wait it out a little for Super Mario World.

@PugKing, both are great choices, but I'd personally opt for Super Mario World.

SMW is still considered by some to be the best in the series, and it's easy to see why. It's top notch Mario platforming at it's finest, with a nice variety of environments, bold sprite graphics that hold up incredibly well, and there are tons of secrets & alternate paths to discover (seriously, there's a secret world within a secret world, and if you know where to go, you can get to the final level via alternate paths from world 2, lol). If I had one negative thing to say about it, it's that there is some boss repetition, but that's a small stain on an otherwise perfect game, IMO.

As for Super Mario RPG, it's a great game for sure, but it doesn't hold up quite as well as the former, IMO. Positively, it will last you longer than SMW. It's RPG battle system, while simple, is solid. There are some memorable characters, and there are some neat secrets & references (it has one of the most awesome hidden bosses in gaming, IMO). On the negative side of things, the graphics haven't aged gracefully at all (although the magic effects are still cool & unique), while still humorous, the story isn't as funny as later Mario RPGs (particularly the M&L series), and the few platforming sections simply don't hold up at all, bordering on irritating at times.

All in all, I'd give SMW a 10/10 (and a must own for any gamer, especially those who enjoy Nintendo games), while I'd give Super Mario RPG a very respectable 8/10. I'd say it should really come down to if you enjoy platformers or RPGs more.

I picked up Darksiders II (I know, older game for Wii U) during a sale, and have to say I am really enjoying this game. I got it because it seemed to be a game I rarely saw for Wii U, and I know with THQ gone, it may be hard to find in the future. I am glad I took the chance on it. A little bit of Zelda, a little bit of Diablo, and what I thought was a little bit of God of War, until I remembered the Zelda games do often have pretty cool boss battles as well. This game is running a very solid 8/10 for me right now, and I am betting it will make it to 9/10 by the time I am done.
