you just udpdate the row or cell in the table you C&P from your spreadsheet,that is how i do it anyway

There is only an option to update the cell on VGC, so I have to click 3x per cell :-(

Oh well, done now.

I started playing Chrono Trigger this weekend, for the first time :)

I don't know what to say..........wow. Enjoy! Just remember it's a 20 year old game now.

on 01 September 2014

Maybe I should take the Epoch to 1995 and play it at launch :-P

on 07 September 2014

Hahaha good luck, I'll jump to 1998 then I just picked up Panzer Dragoon Saga and started that :-)

on 08 September 2014

Nice! I've been meaning to play Saga. Where did you find it? It's so expensive these days.

P.S. I beat Chrono Trigger last night!

on 08 September 2014

eBay, I paid an arm and a leg, but mine is in flawless condition. Better to get it now, then when it cost even more in the future.

Nice about CT, how did you like it? You know on the second play through, you can cut to the Lavos fight at any time, and you'll get a different ending based on which crisis isn't solved.

on 08 September 2014

I loved it :)

Great combat system, amazing graphics and sound, and some truly unique and memorable characters.

on 08 September 2014

Plus for the time, the story was unique and new. You also rarely see charcter development like Magus anymore, and the idea that 2 characters from the past and a robot from the future are on your team.....

But then again the world ended in 1999.

You still fixing the site? Hardly see you anymore.

I mostly gave up. The owner of the site (ioi) basically ignores VGC in favor of Gamewise. There are some fundamental flaws with the structure of this website and he doesn't want to take the time to fix them (e.g. our game database is extracted from Gamewise, but I can't create new entires for games on Gamewise, but not on VGC. So no Pikmin 3 WiiU and well a lot of games from 2013).

I only really care about the "Most Wanted" section now.

How are you btw?

on 17 August 2014

Great! Really enjoying my Wii U. I play it for hours a day and use it for everything now, including remote and computer. I actually have to finish up some of my master legal classes tonight, so I am using a real computer for once, but other than that...I love it!

Yeah, I knew this would be the case when gamewise came about. I worked for the site for a bit, but it is all so technical for me. So much so that I think he is missing the point of that site. His main hits come from mobile gamers, moms, kids, etc. They do not care about all that technical stuff, they just want info on what game is hot at the moment while they wait at the hair salon or on the school bus. I miss the days of simple database like we had here. I wish gamewise was not even linked here and we could do our own thing.

on 17 August 2014

ioi let you work on Gamewise? I basically begged him to let me work on VGC, but he refused. VGC is one of the higher ranked online game sites though, I'm sure one day he'll restore it properly.

One reason you probably don't see me on anymore is because I'm trying to spare up time to play video games. I own a lot (look at my collection) and only beat about half of it. Bought my WiiU 2 months ago, and only played about 6 hours (mostly local MP in MK8).

Plus I don't really have much to contribute via forums. I've realized that for the most part it's fanboys. If people are talking about a game I like, I'd rather not hear about it and be surprised as much as I can be when it comes out. I don't even watch reviews anymore.

This is why I like the "Most Wanted" feature. I get a fairly unbiased list of games, with no info. If Salnax give up this feature, I'm going to take over. I'll make time for this.

on 17 August 2014

Around here you have to get jobs by talking to his current employees and guys in charge.

on 17 August 2014

Only 2 people in charge of VGC are Brett and Machina, both of which refused to give me power on VGC and both of which moved onto GameWise.

Trunks-Sword does the articles, but meh......I want true database power.

< OfficerRaichu15 posted something on Michael-5's wall:

hey have you seen npd yet for june?

Briefly. PS4 is severely undertracked, and WiiU/XB1 are undertracked as well right?

Meanhile 3DS, Vita and 360 are overtracked.

on 18 July 2014

yep 3ds is 7k overtracked sadly :(

on 19 July 2014

I don't know why Nintendo didn't go all out this year on the games. I really have little to look forward to other then Codename STEAM and Pokemon.

Going to revert back to PSP and DS gaming lol.

on 19 July 2014

guess they released so many games in 2013 that they need some time for new ones XD but anyway i predict majoras mask 3d,steam,monster hunter 4, and a new pokemon for 2015 so far

on 19 July 2014

That would be way too fast for a whole new Pokemon, this isn't an annual franchise. But I agree with you on Majora's Mask 3D, they did give away Majora's Mask CD's as a Platinum reward for Club Nintendo last year.

Still disappointed with 3DS and Vita overall. Compared to the DS and PSP 3 years into their life cycle, the number of games on the new handhelds isn't much. All I want at this point is Dragon Quest VII and a new Advance Wars for 3DS, and a PS2 remake for Vita which I have yet to play (Shadow Hearts maybe?)

P.S. I might be crazy for saying this, but I'm predicting a Zelda Pinball for 3DS in 2015. GB had Kirby Pinball, GBC had Pokemon, GBA had Mario and another Pokemon Pinball and DS had Metroid. The only major Nintendo series without a pinball game is Zelda (but I could see a 3rd Pokemon Pinball for 3DS).

I also predict a Final Fantasy XII Remaster for PSV/PS3, but maybe not until 2016.

platformmaster918 said: Michael-5 said: How do you know how well the XB1 is selling during Madden Week? Even if XB1 outsold the WiiU worldwide for 1 week, how can you say it "has been outselling WiiU" as in plural? Get that bias out, XB1 is doing bad and it's struggling to do any better then the WiiU. XB1 will be up with Destiny and that 1 week where a free game comes with an XB1,...

COMG! Japan Pre-order Chart Thread - Daily updates!

in Sales Discussion 3 days ago

RealGamingExpert said:So how much is Bayonetta 2 gonna do first week in Japan? I have no clue how much the points mean, but 16 definitely isn't a lot. The points refer to the # of pre-orders at COMG (A small chain in Japan). As a rule of thumb, game generally sell 500-1,500 copies per 1 COMG pre-order. I usually assume about 1,000. So at this rate, Bayonetta 2 is looking to get...
