Stuck on the boss fight with
Code: [Select]
Noel in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, so I'm exploring other available areas to power up by completing quests.

Making decent progress on the main storyline of Horizon Zero Dawn after doing tons of sidequests, and I've only died from long falls, not from enemies themselves.

Keeping up with the story quests of Kingdom Hearts Union Cross, and can take on even high-level enemies with my medals.

have a new jerb so not as much time for marathon gaming sessions + its college football season.

RE: LR. I think you are supposed to stop before said boss, do a bunch of fetch quests and come back and beat him, then run out of time and do the whole game over again. I dropped soon after that boss and just watched the story on the youtubes. The game would have been OK enough for 1 playthrough but 2 lol no.

On hour 60 of Tales of Beseria. Getting ready for the final dungeon. Story got stronger as the game progressed but I think as I did for Xillia that the game is needlessly padded for length. It would be a much stronger game if about 15-20 hours of fat are trimmed.

pre-ordered .hack. Currently debating what game to start next: FF12, restart FF15, .hack, Trails 2, or metroid 2 DS. It will probably be .hack which I was thinking of saving until college football season ended however I'll have XBC 2, Ni No Kuni and maybe a Cold Steel game for that.

Sakura Quest had a really nice ending and left it open for a couple OVAs. Favorite anime of 2017 so far.

Having sharon for CS1 would have been a neat trick, but alas was talking about CS2.

I've been playing Trails of Cold Steel and I'm at the final boss in the old schoolhouse. I have tried twice (even tried with the option of weakening the boss after dying) and then another time and cannot defeat him. I have tried using Crafts to delay the boss (using Rean, Gaius and Jusis) and then having Rean and Emma spam Impassion to keep CP up and use Chrono Drive to make my characters faster, but the fucking boss after some time just ignores the huge time delay he should have and then starts fucking up my characters. I've watched several gameplay videos to see if I did anything wrong and saw that people were winning with different strategies and party members.

Maybe I just need to level grind, but yuck.

EDIT: Literally spent all day (not kidding) finishing this game. Was able to figure out a strategy to win without taking much damage, but damn did those battles take a while.

Also, all of those twists at the end! I didn't see most of them coming. I'll just say that I'll be going around the city trying to find the Trails of Cold Steel 2, but will probably take a break from gaming until December (I have CPA exams to study for and was distracted by playing Cold Steel because this game is incredibly engrossing. Definitely a Top 5 JRPG for me.

The final boss took about 4 tries for me. The problem for me was I only had 2 characters that had accessories to block vanish. Eventually I won by having Rean, Alicia, and Jusis (with Laura and the force orb coming in late) all clumped together with Sharon way on the other side of the screen. The boss kept going after sharon (Sharon had high magic/damage evasion and I think she had a high defense and orb that attracts?). Jusis used platinum shield, Rean used s-crafts and the other character buffed CP with techniques or that final recipe that gives you 77CP. I never used chrono drive to my knowledge.

Cold Steel 2 is just as good. I wish I could play it for the 1st time again.

As far as D&D games go, I really liked Intellivision's D&D game the best.

I often felt that the franchise "black sheep" were very underrated games. My favorite SMB is SMB2, my favorite Zelda is Zelda II, and my favorite Castlevania is Simon's Quest.

I just finished CS2 about a month ago and the wait for CS3 is already killing me.

I watched Log Horizon a few years back, but, like Hathen, forgot most of it.  According to my notes, the first season was "entertaining fluff", but the second season had very slow pacing, and lacked an interesting conflict, so I dropped it.

The 2nd season got all festival-y and harem-y. And we never did get that Nyanta arc.

I'm admittedly intrigued by A Centuar's Life. I'm just worried what I see in that anime can never be unseen.

Played more of Tales of Beseria and starting to enjoy it a lot more. The story is getting better (still like the combat in Xillia a lot better tho) and Magilou has god-like trolling powers. I need a screenshot of her showing Laphicet the middle finger to make as my wallpaper.

Angel Beats update! I'm currently on Episode 6 (don't really binge watch anything these days) and this is a really strange show. It focuses so strongly on gags and goofs yet still manages to just be constantly more and more depressing. I kind of like that about it.

Oh yeah, and the OP is a real earworm.


Can confirm. Angel Beats is a great anime for when you want to feel sad about everything at all times.

Key has perfected this kind of anime.

Watched 1-7 of Scrapped Princess. Its a pretty fun road trip, fantasy anime w/ a bit of sci-fi thrown in. Sort of like El-Cazador in a way only a bit better.
