^Shut up. Bravely Default has the best battle system in a turn-based game I've ever played, hands down.

While unconventional, I'm giving that win to Ar Tonelico 2.

Hell, I'm even going to edit an explanation here.
AT2 has a Dark Souls battle system where even if you are facing an impossible challenge due to a difference in stat, if you have the skills, you can turn everything around and win.
(I know, sorry for 'dark souling' but it's the best representation of this)

I know you guys are joking around, but damn...I liked both Star Ocean 4 and Bravely Default. Kinda weird for me to see people shooing others away from them, especially when it's already clear that they showed enough interest to buy them in the first place. At some point, you just gotta try to get some value outta what you bought...and that's if he winds up sharing your opinions of them.

How did you not cringe to death watching THIS ?

Star Ocean IV? Are you just checking to see if anyone here hates you?

I voted for it.
I mean, if he wants to play it, he should do it before anything else on that list because it will seem even shittier after playing a good game.

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

So I finally got to watching Pop Team Epic episode 1.
I think I liked it. It's weird...

Watch episode 1 to see if you like it. There's a couple of RPG jokes in episode 1.

If you need that extra nudge:

What? More?

EDIT: Interesting... In the French segment, one of the VA is Yugo from Wakfu (

Wearing a shirt Vaan?
Maybe they can finally fix Vaan's abs.

Erm, Squeenix already fixed them in the baseline HD edition.

Gonna be some awesome costume mods

Actual skirt Ashe?
Wearing a shirt Vaan?

And yet another title change.
I should technically keep the "Switch" part... but I dunno, I feel like leaving the same item for 2 years isn't fair.

So, about Yakitate Japan...
I've told like a couple of people to watch it in the last year or so but it's kind of fuzzy in my mind because the manga and anime were a long time ago for me.
Just to make sure I'm not leading people astray I've just started re-watching the anime.

I'm at ep.15 and completely hooked on it.
It's just so damn good.

It really was a genre defining anime. You can see how it settled many future 'tropes' of shonen battle cooking.
Also, the puns and just pantastic.

EDIT: I totally forgot about the nun. Man, she's awesome.
EDITER: Oh my...

Food Wars! (season finished):  I've enjoyed the series up to this point;  I think the idea of translating the shounen formula into a cooking anime works well.  However, the "arch-antagonist who wants to take over the world" trope isn't one they should have attempted.  It doesn't fit naturally into a cooking show, unless you're willing to crank it up to Kill-la-Kill or JoJo levels of absurdity.   This series has picked a bad time to start taking itself seriously.

You may want to look up "Yakitate Japan".

That's one thing that weirded me out in the new trilogy. The alliance is in such a bad state as compared to episode 6 that it feels like they just retconned every prior victory.

Saw the movie and it was fine.
Much better than the first one (of this trilogy).

Yeah, the Poppins part was shit.

Like, I'm not dissing the idea. Thing is, it looks so damn bad it's inexcusable. Luke does something similar in a book but way better. Like, he gathers the leftover oxygen and makes a shield of force around him and the air to keep pressure and slowly moves his 'ball' to safety (all very believable in SW fashion).

For me, winter season is a step up from fall season, so I'm fine with it.

What are your thoughts on The Idolmaster One For All?

I always wanted to play one of those games, but there are too many timed elements and I can't read that fast...
Actually, it's been so long, I'm not even sure if I can even read Japanese anymore.
