Yeah, I usually stall out on the second stratum, but I still ove them. Believe me, I'd love to be playing this right now, but I'm currently strapped for cash. It's one of 15 3DS games I still want...that's also why I haven't bought a Switch yet...

I'm still skimming the frst two arcs of DB Super. It's been a real slog. So much worse than the movies, but I think I've watched most of the new scenes that matter so far. I'll start up the new third arc soon-ish. Hopefully tomorrow, or at least this weekend.

Also, that's just Cloud of Darkness' original design. I'm just saying, he doesn't need to have played any fighting game from the last 20 years to get where they're coming from. He just has to have played Final Fantasy III. =P

too scantily clad for a fighting game.

No such thing.

bu bu bu bu but what about the nice Bunny girl butt theme?

Wait, where?

EDIT: Nevermind, found it. And WOW, you weren't kidding...better remember to change it before company comes over...but I've got the next 4 days to myself, so I'll leave it there. I really just need a new theme in general. Kind of disappointed it's not something of an Easter Egg, like in the Chun-Li's High Kick in the SFV theme, which I've been using for over two months now...but at least it's nice overall. Nice music that doesn't loop too often or grate on my nerves. Good coloring on the backround, and the green isn't too bright/neon so it doesn't hurt my eyes, yet it still readable against the mostly white parts of the backround...nice change of scenery, at least.

...And it helps that I'm an ass-man, of course, but hey...

It is insane how much I want a XII-2. 

Incidentally, I also want a giant bag of gold.

I'd rather have a wheelbarrow of Gold, personally. Easier to cart to the bank without getting mugged. =P

Only worth it if you don't own games like Darkest Dungeon...

That's me, plus Starbound and Pony Island. But I could get those two for less than $30 if I wait for a 50% off sale, so I'll pass...

I don't understand the excitement. I was a fan of XBC and XBCX and this looks like a few steps backwards from both those titles.

Pretty much my reaction, but hey...to each their own.

...also, I'm a month and a half behind on the conversation here, so sue me...

Pretty much hit a crossroads with Paragon. I've played it enough that I feel like I have a better sense of how to play it, but I still suck at PvP. I keep trying to practive with PvE, but the bots suck in Solo, and every single match I've played Co-op has involved at least one noob who thinks he's rambo. Hell, even just poor team compositions can ruin it, and there's no excuse now. The recent additionbs have gone out of their way to make the different positions and matchups clear, yet most players don't actually give a crap. They think they're too good. It's especially frustrating in PvP. One guy though he could hard carry with a jungler, solo right lane. Said "He gets a lot of PKs, so it's Okay!"

And yes, he did get 8 kills. More than the rest of the team, actually.

He also died 12 times. More than the rest of the team, and far more than anyone on the opposing team.

That wasn't even the worst I've encountered lately, but it sticks out as a sign of just how frustrated I've become with team games in general lately. It's not that I need to win to have funb, but MOBAs seem to snowball quickly, and teamwork is absolutely required. Even Paladins had this problem, because you can't change your character once you've started the match. So no tanks, all flanks requires that everone be extremely good, or it's going to be an utter massacre. It's kind of hard to have fun when you're only on the field for less than a minute before it's back to the respawn queue.

So, aside from Overwatch and the occasional PC MOBA, I think I've moved on from my online competitive arena phase. It's just not worth the effort.

Found out Tiger & Bunny is on Netflix, so I finally started that up. I've been meaning to get to it for ages, but so far, it's...interesting. It helps that lately I've been really into Super Hero-related stuff lately (comic books, movies, and Hero-based competitive multiplayer games), so the setting and story seem to be hitting home for me. I'm only 4 episodes in, though, so hopefully Kotetsu and Bunny start getting along better, because their lover's spats got old by the end of episode 3. I guess it doesn't help that none of the other characters have been presented as anything more than one-off jokes, but I have a gut feeling that everyone has a lot more going on under the surface than they've shown so far.

Started up Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition for the first time in years, this time on the PS3 via the trilogy collection. Much like Ratchet & Clank and Jak 1-3, this was an experience I had been missing for far too long. I really outta make a serious effort to finish all the top games I had as a kid. Twilight Princess, Okami, DMC 3, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando...I stopped playing all of my favorites right before the end because I was afraid they'd end and I'd never want to play them again...or worse, just never have time...I think I can change that...

Gives me more time to save up. I'll play Ys Origins/Memories of Celceta in the meantime.

So, don't watch the P4 anime?


P4's anime isn't BEST ANIME EVAR! good but its very well done in both English and Japanese (don't watch the P4 Golden anime tho) and you should watch it. Its pretty much faithful to the game only you don't have to dungeon grind. Same goes for P3's anime.

It was more of a suggestion to whoever was above my post at the time. I'm looking forward to the anime, actually. Haven't gotten around to it since I'm afraid it'll spoil P4 for me, but hey. Extra bit of motivation right there, sort of like Tales of the Abyss anime was for that game (and I needed the extra motivation to put up with that prick of a protagonist).

Oh wait, I thought you were talking about the GOG sale. Yeah, the Steam Halloween sale was Shite. I just saved my money instead.

On the other hand strong writing and characters can keep my interest even if there isn't much of an overarching plot.

This right here is the main difference for me. I like good characters, but I don't need them to enjoy a series if I like the world and story. Really, my priorities are as follows: Art Style -> Setting -> Hook -> Characters -> Pacing -> Story excecution

To make a long story short, that's basically how my moemory works as well. I remember visual experiences most of all, whereas events, names, and characters tend to fade very quickly. The biggest anime example I can think of is Aria: The Animation - I could not tell you thing one about what happened in it, if anything, but I'll always remember its version of Mars. It left such a striking impression that I could not possibly forget it. All the canals, architecture, etc. It lives on in my mind long after the story ended and the characters faded away. And that's what I always look for: I want to be presented with a memorable and interesting world. I will not settle for mundanity.

I know this makes my outburst from earlier look even more juvanille than it already was. My tastes in stories are very limity - anything that feels like it takes place in modern times, with not fantasical elements to makes its world stand out, insteads focusing on individual characters whom are guaranteed to fade from my memory eventually for sooner than the world they took place in...its obviously going to limit the conversations I can have when it comes to stories of any medium. I guess I just got frustrated, since I really wanted to talk about anime, and was banking on the new season to help that along. But everything that did have a potentially interesting world havedn't been grabbing attention, and instead I feel as left out of the conversation as I was last season...

...Then again, did I remember to bang on about how awesome My Hero Academia was? Because it was seriouly awesome...I think I missed a golden opportunity there...
