Well, he can't be any worse than George Clooney and his Bat Rubber Nipples. Fake Edit: Oh god dammit, nevermind. I forgot that he was Daredevil.

And speaking of, lol at Affleck for finally rectifying his lack of being a Batman in an effort to catch up to Clooney in that regard.

I think the overall mood and flow of the game really decides if random battles work or not. Obviously the old way of loading and having a fight is very cumbersome, but I'd love to see more games transition smoothly from battle to exploration. That married with a fast paced, challenging, and fun combat system could lead to some very innovative games.



You mean like Xenoblade Chronicles (and to a much lesser extent, FFXII).

Caim is not only alive and well, but still a prince of his old country (or a lord of a new one), instead of a shit-wrecking hobo who's so pissed off that he could kill Death.

He did. I mean kill death...

Caim Kills Death

See?

You do realize that I had mentioned that detail for a reason, right?

What if a game had random battles, but you had fewer in a given area the higher your level was? and if you were at a certain experience level, you wouldn't get any battles at all -- thus, you can't grind at all, and you stop having regular battles when they quit being a threat?

Didn't Lost Odyssey basically do that (or did it forget about the whole, turning off encounters part of it)?

Yeah, I wouldn't say that Tales of Favorite is my favorite Tales of working title.


Edit: http://gematsu.com/2013/08/tales-of-link-announced-for-smartphones

Welp. We got something out of Link.


Double Edit: http://www.siliconera.com/2013/09/04/tales-of-zestiria-is-most-likely-the-name-of-the-next-tales-game/

I think I'm going to go ahead and believe in the sign of ToZ.


Triple Edit: http://gematsu.com/2013/09/tales-of-bibliotheca-tales-of-phantasia-announced-for-ios

Have a Tales of Summary and a Tales of Phantasia 'now with DLC' iOS edition too.

And unless there's a Utautai Sister Six, that's the last of them.

Hmm.  Maybe not the seven deadly sins or a missing "boss" sister?

Maybe the dragon is the seventh sister?

Nah, that's pretty ridiculous as the dragon was confirmed as a 'he' in previous material. Although, either a brother or mother might be possible.

Knowing this series, literally A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G can happen.  Caim could come back to life, have made love to Nier's long, long ago ancestor and they had a kid, and that kid became a woman who made love to Seere and there ya go.  Poetry.

I actually loved that Drakengard 2 had an actual "happy" ending, every other ending between Drakengard and NieR is a mix of shit-awful to bittersweet at best.

Actually, according to the pre-release manga for this game, Caim is not only alive and well, but still a prince of his old country (or a lord of a new one), instead of a shit-wrecking hobo who's so pissed off that he could kill Death.

It was also heavily implied that he was Red Eyes during Nier's backstory.

I had a Power Glove.  It was so bad.

No, I don't mean that in a good way ;)

I, thankfully, stuck to the Zapper.

So I finally decided to break down and read (re:marathoned) Attack on Titan.

Code:
:tviv:....

...what?

Its a smiley tag used over at Something Awful. Specifically the one with the words "Oh No! Holy Fuck!" shooting out of a television screen and knocking over the smiley, couch and all. My guess is that it originated in The TV IV forum specifically (given that they share the same name, plus I think the IV stands for Intravenous as in those pouches that drip fluids into you at the hospital; and TV should be self explanatory).

The long belated point was that I wanted something to better express my feelings with so I made due with this place's lack of smileys by substituting for another. Really, they should've sent a poet, for I have no words (and I don't want to risk posting spoilers).


Edit:
I will say this though, I love how this series doesn't bother giving you any obvious buildup to its big reveals but instead slaps you across the face with them before you can realize where all the subtle clues are leading you to, and only then does it proceed to explain the logic behind the conclusion immediately afterwards. It's a complete inverse of how such reveals are usually handled, especially in manga and anime.

Why did nobody told me that such a thing like the Sega Activator existed back in the 90's? I never knew that Sega had something similar (more or less) to the Kinect in those years.

Because we'd rather not feel old by acknowledging people might actually be young enough to not have heard of it. Especially since there's a good chance those people are 20 or a bit over now.

Though I guess maybe you ARE old enough and just didn't follow Sega or games at all then, whichever.

Or it could've been like many other peripherals from that era in that they were too gimmicky, obscure, and expensive at the time to care. I mean, who here remembers the NES's Keyboard peripheral?

@Eusis: Whatever happens a good chunk of people is always gonna find a thousand reasons to not like LR and make other people fall into their line of reasoning and what not.

Is alright if anyone feel the need to do that, but there's a line between being annoyed by something they don't like and having personal problems with it as I've seen over the years.

I think it's at least partially an echo chamber effect really. Granted people with issues with whatever seeing others with the same issues tends to make them stick out more and more in people's heads, but I think a good chunk of the time there IS a root problem there: ME3's ending really was pretty lousy for example, though the reaction went completely overboard. Though I haven't followed much of what Aeolus said in the past there, partially because I tend not to want to follow every little detail, especially with some of these details out of context anyway.

If there's a root reason I'm upset (and I'm not really that upset anyways, just really fucking bored due to SA's monthly pay wall being up for the past month and will likely remain so for the remainder of this month; Edit: also because there's been a dry spell of news lately, so any reprieve is appreciated), its because I used to actually like Square and Enix and their games, but nowadays they just seem to be out to make the literary version of the Tower of Babel when it comes to writing their flagship titles (or spamming GREE-ware). And it's not just the FF series but other clusterfucks as well. It honestly feels like they're trying to challenge the Star Wars Expanded Universe for the title biggest literary clusterfuck.
