@Big A2: everything is relative. if you want to start the 'b-b-but it's more expensive heeeeere~' whine-fest, you also have no room to talk, $88 or not -- there's always someplace where things will be far more expensive, and that's even if the people there have the time to think about video games as opposed to basics like food, water, and shelter for the night. Let's all count our blessings we have the luxury to complain about the price of video games at all and continue with the discussion without attempting to silence one another, please.

@Wooton:

spoilers~

As I understand it (and i could be wrong, i still need to play it through again but 4HoL has sucked me in for right now, lol), the first time you play through the game is actually the third time these events have gone down. 'Ray' is an alternate-universe Missile.

First Time: AU Missile dies protecting Kamilla, follows her around and kinda figures out what's going on. He is unable to change anyone's fate in this universe.

Second Time: AU Missile is waiting for what's going down at the junkyard, but is unable to get Sissel to help him. Missile is able to see Sissel's powers in action and is able to form a plan to enlist his help next time around. He is still unable to change anyone's fate in this universe, he needs Sissel's help.

Third Time: The events starting from the beginning of Ghost Trick. AU Missile's spirit is old and frail now (he's technically been around for like a bazillion dog-years, lol), and he's about to disappear (move on?), so that's why he gives Sissel the one-night deadline. He is technically able to change fate this time around by tricking Sissel into helping everyone.

wow, what's with the flipping out back there? I've stated on multiple occasions that I've got no intentions of locking this thread provided it remains open to public input. I knew what was going on, i had already seen that post, zez -- Raylax had a valid point, that the number of animal buddies requested could be too much for the game; it's just that the reaction it garnered was somewhat uncalled for. that's the only reason i said anything.

bumping for the sake of bumping isn't cool, but if you've got an update or some kind of neat development going on, sure, post it. i've got no issues with people posting in this thread provided that the posts are relevant to the topic at hand, as they have been so far. since when have I ever locked a thread due to sheer inactivity alone? :/

@irks: i didn't mean 'demo copies' as in straight-up demos of the game, i meant 'demo copies' as in copies given gratis to retail employees so they can play the games and then recommend them to consumers or as in copies of games meant to be played in demo kiosks installed at stores. you never know what they were actually intended for :3

either host them on your own space or don't post them at all. or, you can just post the bare URLs and let people load the images if they want to as opposed to forcing the images to load each time they open or refresh the page.

@TokyoRed: What you're doing by copying the image location from another website is hotlinking -- you're leeching that other site's bandwidth by using their assets instead of rehosting them on your own space. They're paying the costs to serve the images they host on their own site, and when other sites directly link to the images from their servers in order to display them, they're now paying for those other sites to show off their images too, which isn't fair if you think about it. That's why your images are disappearing, because the people on the other sites are changing up the URLs or access privs to keep random people on the internet from stealing their bandwidth every time a page is loaded.

@gatygun: your argument is sound in that they did the best they could (and it looks great, the layout and general setting looks pretty accurate), but the texture on the bells does not absolutely, positively match the texture on the bells in the movie. the curves on the curly parts are way off, and the bumps look like they've turned into indentations. supernin10do is still correct in saying that the bells don't look 'EXACTLY' the way they do in the movie (note the stress put on the word 'exactly' via caps there).

no one's saying it's not Notre Dame, they're just saying that the game isn't an exact movie match when you get down to the tiny details. :3

@gatygun: But if you look at that same screenshot, the bells are missing the detailing as shown in the movie version. the general scene might be set up the same way, but the bells are definitely different.

@TokyoRed: that problem of your images not showing up anymore wouldn't happen if you didn't hotlink all the time. :/

I thought it was technically illegal to resale a game that says "Not for resale" on the box. I don't see how places can sale used games. Couldn't they be sued or something? I'm being serious.

I thought every game said that on the box. Maybe I'm mistaken.

I've only ever seen maybe a couple of games marked that way, they might've been demo copies or something that wound up in circulation on accident.

@BellGoRiiing: that's exactly what i thought, but when i looked up the movie on Wikipedia, apparently it's got a very different plot... something about an android created in a lab whose creator gives it the power to think and feel, and it winds up falling in love with the creator's girlfriend. I wouldn't mind watching the actual movie, haha.
