Ugh, that is disappointing.  Makes me glad I stopped after the first book.

I'd say that Heretics and Chapterhouse are worth reading, but again, Chapterhouse kinda just ends without a satisfying conclusion (then again, you only need to go for a chapter or two to get to the part where some idiot (probably Duncan Idaho) fires a Lazgun at a Shield (spoiler alert: Duncan Idaho dies. News at 11)).

Speaking of Nintendo...

You’ll soon be able to play as Japanese metal band Babymetal in Super Mario Maker

And on that note, http://gematsu.com/2016/04/animal-crossing-fire-emblem-mobile-apps-coming-fall

The first of Nintendo's IPs launched onto the mobile wasteland.

At least the Wii U is going out the door with something.

Given the most recent console Zelda titles and what's been shown thus far, the more time they have to work on this, the better.

Hopefully, the NX announcement doesn't mean that the dev team will now have to drop what they were originally going for to shoehorn in the NX's new controller mechanics into Zelda Wii U/NX (like they did with Twilight Princess).

Gomer in the Service.


Ok, I was under the assumption that we ALL needed to provide Photoshops of our GitS guesses?

Not everyone has access to Photoshop.

Goddamn it, this Sucks. - Me in the future, after stupidly getting talked into watching
Code:
Batman vs Superman.

What!? You thought I was going to say Ghost in the Shell?
37  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: April 26, 2016, 10:54:00 PM
I predict that the show has maybe one or two more seasons left to it and its going to end with Castle's death as a mirror to Derek Storm's death at the beginning of the series.

That would SUCK

Word on the street is that
Code:
Stana Katic is leaving the show after this season. It would make sense given the character development episodes what's-her-face has been receiving lately, but the circumstances are still up in the air AFAIK.

I may not have been too far off the mark on this after all.

In Earthbound's defense, that game would have been entirely broken without the strict inventory restriction. Not that it was all that "balanced" anyhow. I actually really appreciate the early game challenge/tension of only having the item-space of one or two characters.

Meanwhile I kinda felt that it was archaic and dumb. Especially the part where you lose almost half of your capacity (because at this point Jeff should be racking up gadgets beyond Bombs and Bottle Rockets), or the part where you lose a third of it again (Poo you piece of Poo).

That said, I'm far more in favor of Secret of Mana's style of inventory limitation. You can hold every type of consumable in the game, but only up to four copies of any given one. No one-of-a-kind item is disposable, nor would disposing of it help increase capacity elsewhere. It also helped that the spread of items was fairly good for the most part (3 different types of HP restores, 1 Revive + HP restore, 1 MP restore, 1 Status restore and 1 'Get out of jail free' item; the other 4 items were all reusable one-of-a-kind items that provided Instant dungeon escape, Transportation, and two limited types of Status restore that took some of the burden off of the other type).

Wow, that makes it really surprising the Nohr kids actually look like eachother. Guy must have had a thing for blondes.

Its why they refer to the events prior to the game as the Concubine Wars (no, seriously).

That sounds a lot more interesting than the stuff that goes on in Fates. Like, warring houses, lots of backstabbing and intrigue.

But yeah, the only thing I was having difficulty recalling was whether or not Sumeragi had only two wives or three. I know that Mikoto ends up as your wingman (from beyond the grave) for pursuing Takumi's S-rank, but I forget if that's because she's not his mother or because the Avatar is only his half sibling and considered that to be enough of a technicality.

I checked.
Code:
The Notnippon siblings het a free Marmalade Boy-style pass. Now the only thing that could screw up Kiragi genetically is the fact that my avatar is kinda mage-like.


At least he'll have access to a Shining Bow.

And Revelations' plot isn't as bad as Conquest's. Intsys had to settle for the lesser known writer of the Senran Kagura games over the Kindaichi Case Files guy, so you know it can't be as bad (and I even think I've heard people say that Corrin does something approaching not-idiotic on that route).

^ hmmmm I liked the first Resident Evil. 

also lol this ---> http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/sonic-hedgehog-movie-works-at-710867

I thought it was Silent Hill that was the first videogame movie to not suck in a non-narm way?

Also, Sonic has nothing on that impending GitS live action movie.

Code:
Its going to come out that Mikoto and Azura's Mom are honest-to-god sisters during Revelations, hence why all this parading around the issue of incest winds up being fairly meaningless in the end. First cousins are apparently a-okay.

Still, none of this is as fucked up as Odin's, Lazlow's or Selena's situations can be.

So you mean to say that the second image wasn't you trying to subtly imply that you're secretly a middle aged Japanese man that was secretly involved with Beyonce's latest project who was secretly going behind her back to forewarn us of its impending release because you're secretly a heroin addict living in a small town in bumfuck Ohio who's facing several trumped up charges because the prosecutor snuck in some heroin into your coffee and is currently throwing the entire goddamn bookcase at you because he's secretly in the pocket of big incarceration that's secretly trying to convert all of Ohio into a prison state so that they can secede from the United States because the government wants to secretly establish a second gitmo so that they can secretly transfer all of the people that nobody really knows about out of gitmo so that they can continue to secretly detain them indefinitely while our soon to be elected President Trump can publicly shut down the previous gitmo for mucho accolades?

And I secretly admit that this Lemonade joke kinda got a bit outta hand.

The PSP's version is currently the one with the fewest drawbacks for FFIV (the biggest one being that its on the PSP).


ok..so..you DON'T mind playing games on a tiny non native-to-games mobile phone but you DO mind playing them on the well designed PSP?

is this accurate?

I was operating on the assumption that he did not have a PSP (his post did not indicate otherwise).

Its also getting more and more difficult to track down any worthwhile software for the thing (also the nub and d-pad hurt my thumb).


IIRC correctly, 2 or 3 characters can steal

Kid, Fargo, and Mel.  Mel and Kid have a Double Tech where they both Steal, but... I'm not actually sure what that accomplishes.

Not much since the best stuff is only available during the point where you only have Fargo, since Kid can't stop being incapacitated for some dumb reason and getting Mel means siding with Diaper Baby.

Since this is a Tri-Ace thread, I thought I'd make sure everyone saw this story from our front page today:
http://www.rpgfan.com/news/2016/4703.html

Well, at least we're getting 'a' new VP game in the near future.

Some much appreciated good news after this came down the pipes today.
