Anyone else try the Lost Sphear demo?  Impressions?

I'll just go ahead and say that I was surprised at how good it was.  Not that it was omg so good, but that it was surprisingly good, while I expected bland nonsense.  Needs English voices, of course, and the animation could use some work.  Also, movement is kinda slow.  But other than that, I was surprised at how interesting the world and story felt (being obviously on the side of evil, at least for the run of the demo). The "good guys" that you're fighting not all really feeling that "good", either, was interesting.  I legit wanted to know more.

The music is superlative.  Loved every tune, it was right up there with the best of Gust etc.

And, of course, the battle system: surprisingly fun and varied!  The one boss fight feels absurdly difficult, even though I did beat it on my first try.  I'm curious if that's what we can expect from all bosses in this game.

First of all, you'd need an antiVIRAL. *pushes up glasses*

Second of all, I have no clue.  I just put it on 80% zoom for a week and then this Monday when I logged back in, everything was tiny, so I went back to normal zoom and it's all back to normal.

The truest Elder Scrolls experience is spending 10 hours researching all the best mods, 2 hours installing them, 100 hours debugging and figuring out the load order, then playing 5 minutes and getting bored.


I laughed, cuz that shit is too true.

Wild Arms 2 - Climbed Telepath Tower. Found the legendary Booty Call tool along the way. It has already been quite useful in helping me locate some bountiful booty.
Anyway, I then watched the rather morbid enemy broadcast to the world from the top of said tower. Next, I climbed over Mt. Chug-chug, and ultimately got back to HQ. Received the next mission: to deliver a letter to some place whose(?) name I've already forgotten.
*All In all, I think it's a solid JRPG for its time (I never got around to playing the series in its day). A good follow up to the original. Enhanced in all the right aways (except for the battle sprites - yuck) . There's a lot more 'style', compared to the first game.
The poor translation to English is hilarious. The music however, is excellent. So very late 90s, yet so very good. Also, using radar to find towns and dungeons on the world map is really dumb.

I seem to have recovered from the Big Text virus.

More games for consoles I don't own! Nadia is indeed the surprise pick (while simultaneously being kind of a "huh, you'd think it would've been in sooner" like Yamato was).

It's been building for a while but I realize that since I don't watch a lot of mecha anime anymore I basically don't have a clue what the new entries are at this point. For Z I had either never watched or never heard of Orguss, Aquarion, Daiguard, or Dancougar Nova (though to be fair on that last one I've never watched the original Dancougar either).

Well, this time G in Reconguista I know, but dropped after like 4 episodes (still on the backburner), Wataru is just the obligatory new 80s entry (feels like they'll never run out of those), I've never watched Cross Ange after hearing about some of the stupid scenes in the show, and I've never even heard of Buddy Complex.

All the new Mazingers are basically manga-only since as far as I know, Mazinger Z: The Impact did really poorly (A shame since I always like the modern take on 80s designs). Last animated Getter Robo was nearly 15 years ago too.

When the motherfuck do you get a fortitude field skill? It's killing me, passing all these things that I can't use or open or swim through cuz NO ONE HAS FORTITUDE!!!

Edit: So I found out I'll get it pretty soon. Sorry for the rant. Game rocks!

I've been really feeling it as well. I hate the fact that they introduce branching quests with a skill check that required two skills that I didn't have at all.

At least I've almost obtained another Rare Blade, so that Nia can have a full set at last (of course, I'm probably going to need to have the Core Crystal recharge first).
I've got about 11 or 12 rare blades now. Most of them through common crystals believe it or not. Rare blades are actually pretty aggrivating with their special requirements for leveling up and such....not all of them but a few are pushing my buttons to say the least. What annoys me most is how FUCKING RANDOM the blade is that you'll get. Rex keeps getting tanks and healers, while Nia gets healers and tanks as well. Sucks that all the ring blades are attached to beasts too...they look stupid.

New SRW announced.

Code Greatass R2, Gundam ZZ, Gurren Lagann, Reconguista in G and Cross Ange are the highlights.
Lost track on all these recent Mazingers and not familiar enough with Dunbine or Wataru to know how they'll interact.
More Mightgain and Crossbone is never bad.
Nadia's the 'what the crap' pick (and even more strangely is not getting paired with Gargantua).
And the rest are likely to be post plot/unit only (aside from Buddy Complex, which was so bad that Bandai canceled and replaced it with Cross Ange; I guess that makes it a highlight too, even if they've got to play it straight this time).

Here's to the Kallen x Ange power hour.
