And speaking of, the Seals this time are fucking ridiculous. We have Seal Atk (good for tanks like Sheena), Def Ploy (Arvis says "Come to daddy.") and Quick Retort (so many fucking units want this; Camus, Xander, Ryoma, Fjorm, Any Dragon with Lightning Breath+, the list goes on). And considering that a 1.4x multiplier unit is available literally one battle into the t_t, I'm calling this one of the most generous (that said, NYCorrin is rather incredibly underwhelming as a seasonal unit, but whadda expect from a free 5 star).

The day before was a good stark reminder as to why Alcoholics Anonymous is such a balls sucking mode. Nothing like trying to take a serious stab at the mode only to get wrecked on the seventh round because you ran out of items from all of the previous whale hunts (and all I was trying to do was to avoid getting shipped to the 13-Coin/Poprock tier; my serious attempt might have only probably landed me in the 15 or 14 whatevers tier anyways). The entire mode is dog shit and its too bad I can't retake that survey to further convey these renewed feelings of disdain at this situation.

Also kicking around the idea of promoting an Adult Tiki. All of mine are -HP but the choice of whether to go for +Atk, +Def or +Spd weighs heavily on my mind (well, okay, not +Spd/-HP, Tiki's way too slow for that).

No, they found Takumi's account.

Speaking of Takumi...



-atk but +spd, so it's okay and he's right in time for the new Trials.

And yet still we have WARGARBLLLLL WHERE MAH CHRONO TRIGGER and FF6?!?! crowd. News flash: they even remade your CT and FF6 like-games you always wanted. Its called I am Sestuna and Bravely Default. Oh and both those games are trash grindfests but I'm sure they'd be incredible where they belonged, in 1994. You are even getting your Secret of Mana. Oh and here comes a new Dragon Quest, whose archaic battle system and barebones story will probably bore you to tears by hr. 30.  RETRO JRPG MASTER RACE R U NOT ENTERTAINED?

Calling you out on this. Bravely Default was a poor substitution (even before getting into the second half, or the original JP version) and I am Gundam! was pretty much a publisher funded College Student's Grad Project (littered with plagiarism, completely tonedeaf, had only one moderate hook to run into the ground, horribly unbalanced, and just shabby all around). Hence why Bravely Second is a game that most people only consider to have existed at one time, but isn't talked about much, and nobody listed Lost Spheda (I could be wrong, its been a while since I checked) in their Anticipated Games of 2018 Thread posts.

Besides, for every CT/FFVI fanboi still griping about the lack of sequels, you still have plenty of Suikoden fandom clamoring for a true Suki VI, or Level 5 fans wishing for lightning to strike the same place twice for Dark Cloud 3, or Shadow Hearts fans waiting for the IP to fall into someone else's hands.

Uh, you realize that neither Chrono Trigger nor FF6 required any grinding.  FF6 in particular was too easy if anything.

Marle having a bow that makes her not useless in the endgame on the DS version is nice though.

Re: FPS Games - I think it's fairer to say that the EA's, Activision's, and Ubisoft's combined greed have swelled into a supermassive blackhole inside the industry. It's not just FPS games that have been hurt by recent lootbox and Pay2Win shinanegans, after all.

Plus, there's still good FPS games that have come out in the last 4 years or so, with the latest being Wolfenstein II.

RE: RPG talk - What?

Yea its swelling into other games, thankfully it hasn't been the ones I've been playing....yet. As far as FPSs go I'm sure there are still good ones out there if that's your cup of tea. The ones that are more single player oriented haven't been hit hard with hardcore loot boxing. 

My point about RPG games is that right now especially in JPRGs the recent slate has been excellent. On sites like neogaf etal people constantly complain that JRPGs aren't what they used to be and yes for much of the PS3 era it was lousy, no one denies this.  However since then they've come roaring back and the scene is arguably as great as its ever been if they just give the new games a chance.
