Huzzah. My suspicions were correct. Now to get me find the first 3DS Devil Survivor port before this one comes out.

Goddamn is Walhart's Paralogue stage brutal. High-end mounted assholes everywhere in a map that's essentially a wide open field with only the occasional grave and forest dotting the area while an ass ton of reinforcements pour in every couple of turns. My first attempt did pretty well considering that I was down to Walhart and five of his guys with Donnel, Chrom, Olivia, and Avatar left standing before Olivia biting it and my Avatar following immediately thereafter. Can't complain about Olivia's performance during that clusterfuck given that the turn before consisted of her dodging like a motherfucker. My biggest mistakes though were separating my forces too early, not realizing how high-end the mooks were (where one of them alone can pretty much wreck a paired up guy let alone three or four), and bringing less than my A-Team (Gaius and Cherche were demoted down to Myrmidon and Troubadour for skills and ILC adjustment, and both Gerome and Noire were only recently recruited and hadn't promoted yet, let alone bringing clowns like Henry, Maribelle, Gregor (though to be fair, Gregor did a hell of a job staying alive for as long as he did thanks to his time as a Merc/Hero and Titania's Axe cutting enemy accuracy in half during the enemy phase), Virion, and Lissa along).

And speaking of, Noire is already on the fast track to success now that I have her since she inherited Gaius' Counter skill giving Archer Noire some badly needed 1-range enemy phase damage (granted this is unreliable as all hell given that she has to take damage to make it work and HP is a finite quantity until we get to the end of this conga line) and her mother's Tome Breaker skill. And now that she's a Bow Knight she'll soon learn Bow Breaker then she'll be ready to reclass into Dark Flyer for Galeforce hilarity (as well as giving almost no fucks towards any source of effective damage that's not coming from a Beast Killer) and afterwards will be able to second seal her way down to Mercenary for Armsthrift and follow up with Hero for Sol before finally finishing with Sorcerer to make herself invincible.

Gerome though is kinda screwed since he a) doesn't pick up Galeforce, b) didn't pair off with Femvatar, c) can't use dark magic, and d) doesn't really get anything special to compensate outside of the Myrmidon line of stuff (which he'll put to great use due to having a fuck ton of strength and defense) and being a good support tank (thanks to his mother's inheritance of Support Defend+). Now if my Femvatar had taken Str instead of Skill for the knack stat and if I had paired Cherche up with The Vaike, he'd make for a great father for a shitwrecker male Morgan.

To make it even better all that is left is to announce it to summer!

If Bravely Default and SMTIV both get here this year I think we won't need to complain for any other game taking to long for a long time!

I need Dragon Quest VII. More Dragon Quest really, we seem to be having two games skipped over on 3DS, and while I don't care for Monsters I do want Rocket Slime, I really liked the one we got.

EDIT: Actually, yeah. JUST BD:FF isn't really enough for me from SE, they've been extremely lean the last few years when it's come to Japanese output worth a damn, so I'd really like to see more and not just FFXIII crap. Hell, we're missing some of THAT too, even though it got a name change so it's technically not that any more (Type-0).

^My thoughts. I'll believe again IF we get DQVII from them and not just from XSeeD or Nintendo.

That, and BD:FF sounded like it was only a competent game and not a significant or successful title so missing out on it wouldn't bother me nearly as much as a playable version of one of my favorite DQs.

Appearance altering equipment confirmed for SMTIV. Now you too can constantly look like a mismatched doof with no fashion sense whatsoever.

I'm going to be killing my demons in style; full suit and tie. Assuming I'll be able to do that.

You probably can, as long as you don't mind the crippling Phys weakness.

I'm hoping that a) this extends to other playable party members, and b) that there's at least one ruffled shirt option available.

Ah, the good old days when you were lucky to beat a Mario game with more than a dozen lives. At least whomever it was playing that fail didn't get caught in the Pause Trap (say goodbye to that run).

I really want Square Enix to make an explosive comeback this year and totally bring everyone back into the fold with a glorious return to RPG glory.

"Please be excited for E3 this year!"



Their E3 announcement will consist entirely of "Come see us at the TGS!" (and maybe a new Tomb Raider game expansion pack DLC iOS microtransaction-based game).

Whoa man. We're taking about Tomb Raider here, not some mediocre JRPG.

Code:
[color=black]I think that's the reason it is implied that Morgan doesn't come from the same timeline as the other kids. She came from a timeline brought around my the Avatar fucking children that aren't born yet.

Oh and to answer a question, since my Avatar was male and there are no gay relationships (boo). Lucina just regards you as her fathers close friend, who betrayed him. I'm curious to see how that scenario plays out now if the avatar is her mother. [/color]

Code:
Yeah I know that they imply that Morgan comes from a different timeline than the rest of the kids.....I still think that her background doesn't make too much sense.  I mean I guess she probably comes from a timeline where she didn't come back in time and where Grima was still defeated. But that makes it feel like her presence was completely unnecessary.

On a semi-related note, I do wish that they had gone into a little bit mroe detail about how events had played out in the original timeline. I am really wondering what events were changed by Lucina's presence etc.

Code:
They will, with a set within the second round of DLC.

But the tl;dr on timeline changes caused by Lucina involved Validar not dying at all instead of dying (alternate Avatar unchanges this by bringing alternate Validar along to take his place), Chrom receiving a flesh wound during Emelina's assassination instead of being uninjured (which in turn lets him gain more experience to promote and/or reclass), Basilio dying instead not quite dying against Walhart (which lets him bullshit the Fire Emblem back from Validar), and Chrom doesn't get better immediately after Avatar turns on him.
3504  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Round 3: Advance Wars vs. Fire Emblem on: March 01, 2013, 02:03:29 PM
Annnyways, I think I'd skew more towards Fire Emblem once we enter the Advance Wars: Days of Ruin territory. That's the only game I wasn't enthralled with, even though by all accounts it should have been my favorite. It just felt like something was missing.

No arguments there. Days of Ruin felt stripped of some features Dual Strike had, like the War Room. Days of Ruin, however, is the most balanced AW game. After finishing the campaign and doing some single player maps and messing around with wi-fi I just stopped playing it. If I had a friend that I could play multiplayer with, then I would because it's a very fun game.

Does Fire Emblem Awakening have any local multiplayer?

It does, but not in the competitive sense. Instead you and your partner pick a unit to pair up against a series of foes for a nominal reward of some kind.

Death and taxes.

I don't know what country you live in, but there are plenty of exceptions to taxes here in the US.  I'm just not rich enough to be one of them.

The immortal jellyfish. :)

The funny thing about not paying taxes is that its a lot like not dying. Eventually, somebody's going to catch up with you, no matter how good you are at cheating the system (and if not you personally, then your estate, your holdings, your family, etc).
3507  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: February 28, 2013, 08:38:25 PM
And with Dead or Alive 5's story mode, I've got my Four in February. Now nobody can say I don't participate in that retarded monthly goals fad.
3508  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Random and Amazing Pictures, Please! on: February 28, 2013, 01:28:48 PM
Great - now you've got me thinking "what rules are there no exceptions to?"  I'd say gravity, but there's probably something out there that doesn't obey gravity like we'd expect.

Death and taxes.

I'm pretty sure we're getting XIII-3, XIVmk2, and the next iOS/Browser warez, but beyond that is a total mystery.

Let alone, what they're doing with DQX and the DQVII remake.

In case anyone hasn't seen it: the trailer for Die Hard 12 (from the short-lived Ben Stiller show).

I looked around, and I don't think I've posted it here before, even though I feel like I have.  It's awesome, and Ben Stiller does a surprisingly good John McClane.

For a second there, I thought you were referring to Ben Stine, which lead me to wonder if you were referring to something besides those clear eyes commercial, that one game show, and a few bit parts in a few movies where he might have had the opportunity to play as somebody other than Ben Stine (the answer, thankfully, continues to be no, he didn't).
