    kemco makes alot of cheap rpg's like that, my favorite is probably symphony of origin that just came out, theirs chaos rings also but you probably played that already and theirs spectral souls but its more of a tactical game. Record of Agarest war is also not bad but its kinda expensive.

    :twitch: Nice score you got there

    Not sure if it's to your liking but i loved The Bard's Tale, its currently on sale on play store for just 0.99$:eek:
    This one is an "HD port?" for the 2004 Bard's Tale on PC which is where i've played it, :roll:it has one of the BEST narrators ever (the late Tony Jay) I especially loved his performance in the Legacy of Kain series.
    oh and when you install it you get 2 download options
    1-standard graphics for smartphones and what not ~1.5GB
    2-HD graphics for tablets etc ~3GB

    its a big game but for me its worth it,and if i ever got to have a good 10.1" tablet i'm trying the HD pack:laugh:, even the standard pack has better graphics than the PC one

    i second on Kemco RPG's but also some free one (even if its a pay to win it doesn't mean you have to pay to enjoy it... i played Inotia 3/4 and Zenonia 5 till end game without paying anything)

    for me im more after FPSE and PPSSPP with some good ol' ISO or CSO (of the games i already physically own obviously )

    immortal Dusk was kinda good too
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gamevil.ast.global
    SEED2 - Vortex of War was also a good time killer
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ch.seedtwo.market


    i would say don't bother :D but that's just me

    i noticed it was pretty constructive

    Well, Ive officially given up trying to flash my LG G-Pad. Ive managed to root it but installing CWM ot TWRP on it is proving to be a nightmare and I cant seem to progress beyond that. Ive been trying to flash it to something else for weeks. Reading all these instructions on XDA forums and other android blogs about how to go about it but Im just completely stuck and its getting to a point where I will literally throw it at a wall If i carry on further.

    To add more to the frustration, for some retarded unknown reason I cant get access to my NAS from it anymore and ive gone through every setting on my synology to find out if the I.P has been blocked but theres nothing there. so I honestly have no idea why but If i dont stop now I will destroy it....

    I dunno. All the guides tell me TWRP,

    I dont think I can give a shit anymore tbh, I'll just recover it with the LG software and maybe LG have kitkat ready for it so i can update...

    yes but theres different versions of it, some may work better than others.

    are you clearing cache + dalvik before flashing?

    but of course... still it's awesome what you can gain over a stock one and close the gap to the new gen ahah :roll:
    i know a S4 would give me even more once modified but i am really happy of 4.4.2 + Boeffla's cm 2.1 Omni44 Beta7 and my S3

    not bad :) but the improvement is less than a stock S3 to my S3, indeed not powersaving (i use a OC/OV cpu/gpu aka: power extreme preset in the config app)

    would need a 31k+ to see the same rate but i guess it's a bit hard to reach.

    i'm all stock. i know it can OC, but i feel no need to when mere tweaks can boost the performance - thats undervolted too.

    some of the differences are because they use the 3G/'eight' core model for the reference, and i've got the 4G quad core version.

    i manage -0.4% battery drain with wifi and 3g on at idle, so i'm happy as can be - thats over 200 hours of idle battery life.

    i wasn't meaning that...

    and the reference one in antutu is the one with the Snapdragon S600 the Octa is labeled Octa notice that the S4 in the chart has exactely, if not a bit above, the same score of the HTC One who has a S600, the Octa score even lower than that. (that was even a drama moment on some forums when the bench showed that the Samsung SOC was doing worse than the Qualcom SOC o_O )
    also not mentioning the Exynos 5 Octa is less common than the S600 one plus they are both quadcore (octacore is a overrated statement, ofc it has 8 physical cores but not the same revision 4A7+4A15 doesn't make 8 cores even if some dev tweak the proc to work on all eight cores, its pretty dangerous and not meant to be, heck even Samsung dev work on a solution to get all 8 cores working but nope the Ex5Octa will still be a failure and the S600 version is way better than that.

    at last the last time i mailed the Antutu team to know if it was the Ex5Octa or the S600 S4 they answered S600 (unless they changed it)

    also do you use Antutu 4.0 or Antutu x 4.0 1st one is from Antutu 2nd one is from Antutu Labs. and is a bit more harsh than the first (i do 21946 in Antutu 4.0)
