As someone who loves Utada and thinks that Simple and Clean/Hikari are the 1a and 1b of greatest VG theme songs (w/ Passion #2), I thought the song was uh just OK. Which isn't a bad thing, just not my favorite songs that she's done. I'm glad she's back though.

Worst E3 ever?

You can release trailers watched by millions for free on the youtubes or you could go to E3 spend a lot of cash and find out your game reveal is drowned out by another game's hype machine. So its kinda pointless and/or a relic of the pre-internet VG news magazine era?

Where the heck is my Zero promo artwork?

Shining Resonance looked like it had mega potential, but wasn't there... something really really wrong with it?  Can't remember...

Almost every Sega JRPG is somewhere between mindnumbingly mediocre to absolute gutter trash. However pretty much once a console generation Sega lays down a fantastic, original, OMG I love u Sega please make more JRPGs, JRPG. Its frusturating because it seems like the talent has always been there for Sega to be the best RPG developer/publisher on the planet, but they aren't.

Holmes of Kyoto (12-minute drop):  Antique appraisal has never been so boring.

On a lark I googled all of the Current Season Stuff you listed and this actually looks like something I could maybe watch.  I think I enjoy boring anime, though?

You might like The Great Passage (amazon) its about a guy who writes dictionaries.

Cold Steel 2:

- So I did the Valimar battle against a certain Instructor.  And I won!  First try!  Booya!  All thanks to Alisa and her CP generating ability.  Felt dang epic winning that fight.

- Jusis finally bit it in battle for the first time ever, including my CS1 run.  And against a stupid giant Creepy Sheep, no less (by far the cheapest boss fight so far).  What an ignominious way for him to get benched.  I will miss his Noble Command.  But his absence makes room for Emma on my team, who I've equipped very lightly with Scepter MQ and one of the 3 Lost Art quartz I now have.  I could make her more of a cannon, but I kinda want to level up Scepter and see what I can do with it.  I almost lost Alisa in that same fight (perish the thought!) but her 10% evasion happened to save her from almost-certain death.

- I took out that group of worm things that you're supposed to damage one at a time or they'll earthquake you.  I AoE'd them into oblivion anyways and still won.  Ready for Operation: Rescue People You Know From CS1, #2!

I know people say that Emma can be the strongest character in the game but I could never get much out of her. She would always get one shotted by tough bosses. I think you gotta put some quick casting time quartzes on her. Jusis is kind of weak but that platinum shield is an incredible skill. Strangely, well maybe not strangely, Sharon was my tank.

When you say Sharon was your tank, you mean Evasion Tank, right?  IIRC she has some innate EVA like Fie?  Sharon is a ton of fun to use with the Juggler quartz, I'll say.  Lots of AoE moves mean lots of status effects.  Never gets old.  Glad I still have Juggler MQ with me.  Was just as hilarious with Gaius when I was locked into using him for a while.

Emma has really helped me get through some of those optional super monster fights (forgot what they're called) where you get the Lost Art quartz.  It's her Crescent Shell, though, and not her Arts that do the trick there.  But it's kinda tough with Arts specialists in Cold Steel in a way that was never a problem in Sky.  If you want to stack EP, EP Cut, Action, and Cast quartz on someone, there's no more room for actually having Arts you can use!  The addition of Rare, Super Rare, and Master quartz, though, mitigates that difficulty somewhat, especially the further into the game you go.


Cold Steel 2 Journal update:
Spoiler: show
Liberated Roer and it was crazy epic.  What an awesome chapter.  For seemingly no reason I got an AP bonus for going to the Schwarz Drache Barrier before rescuing Irina.  So... that was cool.  I also came DANGEROUSLY close to facing my first legit loss with Valimar, when I was up against Vulcan in the Goliath.  Do all the truly challenging Valimar battles basically boil down to the enemy cheating by getting multiple turns in a row for no reason?  Either way, I still won, so... in your face, Vulcan.

On a lighter note, Alisa is hilarious.  And so is Rean, for that matter.  She's on the verge of openly confessing her feelings and physical attraction to Rean, and yet still doesn't for... reasons I don't understand.  And Rean, for his part, continues to play dumb in front of her and yet very clearly is aware of what she's not saying and of their romantic dynamic.  Despite pretty much knowing how she feels, he seems content to just be passive toward her and let her make the first move, just like the good little harem protag he is.  Blargh.  That said, goodness they're adorable together.

Elliott bonding events are seriously the least creative of all, even Gaius.  I honestly think Elliott might be the most boring character in the game and his BEs don't change that: "Hey, Rean, there sure are problems aren't there?  OH!  I have an awesome idea!  Let's play music! *and then they played music, the end*"
That said, I have never actually used a bonding point to view one, just save scumming.  Do they change?


I used Fie as an evasion tank and used Falco as the MQ, prob should have used Wing becuase magic would knock Fie out.  For sharon I forgot what I exactly did but she had around 30-40% evasion + solid magic defense/evasion, maybe I used Wing, Raven or Katze I forget. I beat the final boss on about the 3rd try when I had Rean + Jusis + another one one side while Sharon was all alone and it was laser focused on Sharon but couldn't knock her out.  Even if Sharon gets hit she can take a punch.

I did switch Rean and Laura's MQ and would like to bring in Laura late to finish tough bosses after Rean was exausted.

With Emma, yea that's the problem not enough quartz slots. You could really only power up about 1-2 spells.

Took a break from XBC 2 and played through Night in the Woods. Goddamn if that wasn't one of the greatest games I have ever played. Been to all these small western PA towns that the town pretty much referenced and grew up in a suburb in which main street was anchored my a convience store and the random pizza place that's lucky to survive 2 years. I've seen all the Look Jobs! murals. The only future in these towns is getting out, and yet at the same time if you've ever been to some of these WPA towns in the autumn you'll quickly notice that despite the poverty and boarded up downtown for at least a couple months/year from mid sept-early Nov that they are one of most beautiful places on earth.

oh and BTW, NITW, best character design in a western game.....ever?

2017 just rocked, and I have even played Nier or Horizon yet

Yeah, I haven't watched 12 Kingdoms, and I don't think I ever found a good place to do so...

Also, looking at next season, at least Angolmois: Record of Mongol Invasion looks interesting. I still have a bunch to catch up with, though. Since I got an Amazon Prime trial, I figured I'd at least watch Grimoire of Zero and Re:Creators. Gotta prioritize those, since I really shouldn't have Amazon Prime. I'm just tired of getting told I have a trial, and that I could get free stuff...at least now I'll be able to say to myself, "that doesn't apply to me, I already did the trial."

Made in Abyss is almost worth your prime membership in itself.

Haven't watched Re: Creators yet. Land of the Lustorous is good, so is Princess Principal. Inuyashiki is extremely violent if that is your thing. Altair a record of battles is kind of a mix between FMA and Aldermain in the Sky (though not as good as either one but decent nontheless)
