So I have a $50 Gamestop gift card and no idea what games I actually want to try. I went the other day and was completely overwhelmed.

My roommate has a 360 again and the only game right now I play for it is Skyrim. I'd be interested in trying others but there are so many I have no idea where to start. I typically play RPGs, JRPGs to be more specific but I'll play any RPG you got.

We also have a 3DS and a PSP in the house that work really well, so if you have RPGs to recommend there, that works too.

Well, if you are looking for RPGs, there are a few good ones I can recommend on the 360. Infinite Undiscovery is a great RPG that plays similar to star ocean, except all of the battles are not done in a seperate field. Star Ocean: The Last Hope is another excellent RPG that has really good gameplay and can keep you occupied for a long time. For the PSP, Phantasy Star Portable 2 is probably the best RPG on the PSP, and it plays a lot better than its other entries and has online play.

Sorry if this thread is out of place, I read the rules but I don't think i saw anything against this type of thread

Can anyone make any good suggestions for a good Co-Op RPG? I wanna play one with my brother, and we can't think of any. Maybe not even rpg, but like Action genre? Thanks!

Tales of Symphonia for GameCube comes to mind. I think a couple other of the Tales of games have multiplayer co-op as well.

Try Borderlands. It's a funny FPS with a great loot system and 4 unique classes.
Hunter - A sniper/gunslinger that can attack enemies with a pet hawk.
Siren - A class that does a little bit of everything. She can cause HUGE damage at higher levels.
Soldier - A rifleman that can deploy an automatic turret.
Tank - A big Russian guy that reminds me of Heavy from TF2. He can go berserk.

It's for PS3, 360, and PC. Just don't get it if your brother is too young.

Well, the ones I can think of off the top of my head that allow co-op gameplay on one console, and is great to play with friends are:

Borderlands - PS3/360/PC
Digimon World 4 - PS2/GC(Gamecube)/Xbox(original)

The other titles do not have co-op gameplay on the same console but are still great games. Also, it appears that you have XBL. Have you tried checking the Marketplace for some co-op titles? Also, if you are looking for good co-op games that are not RPG related, just ask, because I can list quite a few for the 360.

This question does pertain to a Pokemon game, but I think it's a bit more console based than Pokemon based. Anyway, I'm new to 3DS world and wanted to know if I was able to use my 3DS to trade with my DS, provided that a DS game is, of course, in the 3DS. I'm just too lazy to go fetch my fat DS haha. Thanks in advance!

You most definitely can. Download play works for Black and White, and wireless between games is still flawless, well, except for migrating, but I'm pretty sure most people know that.

Quick question!

How much does the video gaming sub forum like Dwarf Fortress?
1.)Meh
2.)It's cool.
3.)Cool enough for it's own thread
4.)Pretty awesome
5.)Cool enough for a successful succession game

That's not really a question one would ask here...if you're wanting a discussion thread on the game, I don't see the problem in going ahead and making one. If you're asking because you're considering LPing the game, I mean, go for it. LP the games you wanna play. But this thread is more for recommendations, non-Pokemon game help, console questions, things like that, unless I've misunderstood your question.

You should try the PSP version of Breath of Fire III. It's basically a port of the PSOne version so unless you are on of those people that are obsessed with the quality of graphics it should be an enjoyable game.

Crimson Gem Saga, Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, and Lunar: Silver Star Harmony are all pretty good RPGs that didn't garner much attention from the casual fan.

Moderators, please move this if I didn't post in the right forum.

Alright, I am a player of Minecraft. However, I am now playing it on a different computer. The computer I want to play it on has an integrated ATI Radeon 3100 GPU. Whenever I start Minecraft, the graphics are chopped with "invisible" lines. They are not the ones most commonly found on YouTube (if they were I'd ignore them). These lines appear on the sides of most objects in Minecraft. When you observe them more closely, you can see through the lines like X-Ray vision (hopefully, you can understand why it annoys me). Thus, allowing me to see underground, through walls, etc. I have fully updated drivers, so don't ask me about that. I also have DirectX 9. I don't know if I'm supposed to disable something, install something, or what, but it has me confused as I've tried searching the web for awhile. If you need more info, the driver's name is ati2dvag.dll. This has been irritating me for a long time, so I hope one of you know how to fix this.

Can you post a screenshot? Java might be to be updated.

Thanks Captain Fabio.

Deadrocks, I had Java 7 on both this computer and the other one, and was able to play Minecraft just fine. However, something I did caused the graphics problem to go away. I disabled every DirectX feature, uninstalled the driver, reinstalled the driver (already tried this a few times), re-enabled DirectX, changed screen resolution (again, I had tried this before), restarted, rolled back the driver, updated the driver, and restarted. I have absolutely no idea how it happened, but I guess all that matters is that it's working like normal again. I do thank you for attempting to help me, though.

Hello! I have recently gotten Pushmo but I have already finished the game! Does anyone know of any cool sites to get an AR reading of a difficult Pushmo design? I've already done most of Daily Pushmo's AR readings.

So, the other day I was thinking about picking up Elder Scrolls Oblivion Game of the Year Edition for the PS3. I also noticed it came with both of the expansion packs. In my house, however, we are not allowed to have PSN accounts for privacy reasons. I am also thinking of picking the game up used, as I can get it cheaper, (and with a Buy 2 Get 1 free pre-owned coupon at Gamestop, it couldn't hurt!). My question is, are the expansion packs for this game contained on the disc, or do they have to be downloaded?

The PS3 version comes with the content already on the disc.
(Though I wouldn't recommend getting the PS3 version as it's buggy...)

Well, I don't have an Xbox, and my computer isn't really capable of playing most game anymore, it's a miracle I got Minecraft working.

Anyway, thanks for the help!
