Head's up for TWEWY fans: Square-Enix will be holding the Subarashiki Kono Sekai / TWEWY Preview Night over at ARTNIA, their store/bar/cafe, to promote the upcoming album by TWEWY composer Takeharu Ishimoto's band, The Death March, which is hitting stores September 17th. While you probably won't get to hear about TWEWY 2 there, you may want to keep an eye on it regardless. Besides, the music is fantastic.

You can listen to a few of The Death March's latest creations here.

KHInsider, via NeoGAF

I would KILL for TWEWY 2...as long as it's not an iPad exclusive or something...

@lundy86_4: If I had the money I'd move to the UK.

If you had serious money, it would probably be sweet. It's an expensive country, but it has a huge amount of history (duh). I'd love to move to London... Maybe once I win the lottery.

Murica is getting pretty damn expensive (amonst a few other things), I know London can be up there but I'd move to somewhere like Manchester, York or somewhere out in the country. Hell I'd even settle for Derby since that's where my mom side of the family is from.

Manchester is my neck of the woods. That was where I went drinking. The country is super nice... My rents had some friends who converted a barn in Yorkshire (forget teh specifics).

I just love UK and their culture, seriously if I had like $100,000 or around that I would move up there

Our culture? Have you not seen Jeremy Kyle?

Never heard of him

God damn, I kind of wish they would just lock/ban the dumb $400 PC threads

and amazon best sellers threads and resolution threads

I think it wouldn't be much of a stretch to just extend that to threads in general.

No threads allowed in SW = A better world.

just the warm safety of the lounge lol

Woo Hoo, I finally beat Arkham Asylum (yes, I'm that far behind). I would like to take a moment to give a big "Fuck You" to GFWL.

Last Of Us on survivor. i dropped it last year but now i'm back and damn it's challanging. it will kick your ass, you have to rely on bill when facing the first bloater and there are bearely any items to craft anything. this is what i'm talking about, this is SURVIVAL.

Tip: There are more molotovs in the game than there are bloaters and while a molotov won't outright kill, it is guaranteed to remove all fungal armor, setting you up for a much easier fight.

Wouldn't we all? Wouldn't really mind a mobile version though if they don't botch it though. Solo Remix was supposedly pretty damned good.

I played through it last year and had to create an account just for it... and for some reason Steam achievements never activated. I mean, I've never really cared too much for Steam they're entirely non-intrusive enough that I can easily ignore them but it still struck me as odd.

Solo Remix is good. The combat system took some compromises, being alot less active and the mingle features were a little rough. But it's not like people that played TWEWY on DS used the mingle features anyway (Real JRPG gamers dont go outside or have friends lol). So I dont see what would be wrong with a mobile TWEWY 2.

I enjoyed it. The boss battles are a bit repetitive, but it's a fun game and I've always liked Batman

Well GFWL is gone now. But I had played like half way through the game, but when I upgraded my PC and did a clean install I only copied the save file. Well GFWL apparently requires you to back up your whole account in order to access the save file, so when i reinstalled the game it just told me my save was corrupt and I had to restart the whole game.

those displayport adapters you bought, were they active, or passive? active ones will function like true displayport up to 1920x1080 iirc, allowing the third simultaneous monitor.

passive ones will only allow use of two monitors simultaneously.

I'm afraid they weren't displayport. I didn't do my research well enough. I thought I could use a dvi-d one, I was wrong. I didn't pay much at all for them, so no waste. And I still can put them to use.
I'm going to buy what is hopefully a active one on friday. If you can see this, will it work?

unlucky. maybe you can return them or somethin'.

i can see that one, but i can't confirm if it will do the trick. i would assume that any displayport adapter failing to market itself as 'active' won't cut the mustard. this one should.

this is the exact one i have, and i can confirm triple screens works with both the 5770 & 7850. actually i think the max res might be 1900x1200.

I'll keep them, I can use them for other things.

Sadly we will run into a problem with the first link. My top card doesn't have a mini, my bottom has two though.

I may have to try the one you have. It will suck to wait again though, I hope its worth it.

#1377 Posted by CrownKingArthur (5262 posts) -

@kitty: ok well it's great that one of the two adapters might do the trick. waiting is a bit of a pain in the bum, but, ya'know, should be worth it.

I'm hitting the go button today. just need to buy i5-4590, 80 gb ssd (for intel rst).
will move some parts around and end up with 8gb ram, 550w psu, barry-the-basic recycled case (that's just an aesthetic thing), genuine windows 7, 2tb boot drive, radeon 7850, no optical drive :D so i'll run with this until the next gpu's come up, then do the gpu, then she's done (hopefully for a good long while.)

#1378 Posted by Ballroompirate (23871 posts) -

@blue_hazy_basic do you wanna try and put a SW league together or do you wan me to? I'm thinking sometime sometime next week or the week after is when we should do it. I need to fix my fantasy football team itch I've been having the last week or so >.>

Rogue looks a lot better than Unity, Unity is the same shyt as AC 1, AC2, AC BH and AC Revelations but prettier (but we all know it's gonna get downgraded). While Rogue looks like AC Black Flag, which is a winner in my book, plus killing and hunting assassins? yes please.

#1382 Posted by Blabadon (29011 posts) -

Bought Dark Souls and Mario Kart 7. Also borrowed Batman Arkham Origins.

I thought I knew quite a bit about Firelink Shrine but then I discovered New Londo Ruins...

If only this game wasn't so ugly compared to the second.

I rarely post there and if I do it's on the FF14 ARR forum.

Also I got my 4th Zenith weapon, got it on my MRD last night. I might actually try and get my MRD Zodiac weapon.

that looks solid, I don't think you'll need anything other than a newer gpu. cpu is really good and everything looks solid. will you post pictures on the pc board when it is finished?

@Ballroompirate: Are you posting on the PC versions forum? I can't even look at that forum anymore because it can become so hostile at times.

The process for upgrading beyond Zenith is crazy. I managed to get the Novus for my bard. Since then, I let my subscription run out as I'm completely burned out on the game. D:

Yea I post on the PC version forum, I tend to just read and not post unless it's like a poll thread like "what class do you play" ect ect.

I took a break awhile back from Feb-July, and I've been catching up on a lot of stuff.

seems like a great active displayport adapter to me, i'll keep my fingers crossed it does the trick for ya.

thanks man. yeah the gpu i have, it's doing just fine for now, i can probably hold out until the next gpu's come along. although for the right price i'd go for a gtx770 or r9 290 (triple fan in either case, roughly double and slightly over double fps boost respectively).

and yeah double thanks, i like to buy at a good price/performance compromise.

after this upgrade my fiance's getting my old cpu. i5-3470. she's currently on an i3-3220. h77 motherboard.

Is this true or just a matter of opinion?

There are benchmarks if you're curious but the differences will vary from game to game. AMD cards are generally considered best bang for your buck for mid-range builds while most high end users will rely on Nvidia. I've been running with the HD 7970 since it first came out. It runs every game I throw at it just fine but it's a bit on the louder side.
