My one suggestion is that I hope you live in Japan or aren't afraid to browse their used game stores, because that's where all da' RPGs at. The few that did make it out of Japan are expensive as hell regardless of quality, and of those, the four most worth owning are Panzer Dragoon Saga, Shining Force 3 pt 1., Dragon Force, and Guardian Heroes. After that your choices are Albert Odyssey, that Magic Knight Rayearth RPG, Legend of Oasis 2, a couple of Shining (not Force) games, and a bunch of crap not even worth mentioning.

Some details on the story of Sen 2 and the end of Sen 1. (Warning Spoilers Within.)

Don't eat him! Eat the cake instead! It's Yarne's Birthday and he's one year closer to extinction.

Anyways, Yarne. For some reason he doesn't want to inherit his mother's Wyvern Rider class tree, opting instead for the Barbarian class tree. He does however get his mother's useful Thief class tree and significantly less useful Taguel class (which barely loses out to Villager for the title of worst class in the game). Still, to compensate for the lackluster class, his mother has one of the best stat cap modifier sets in the game with a sizable +3 in Speed, a +2 in both Strength and Skill, and a +1 in Defense which means that she's getting a positive stat cap modifier in her core combat stats, and she only pays for it in Resistance. Yarne will get all that, plus whatever his father has going for him, and an additional +7 that all children get distributed amongst their 7 stats on top of that. Unfortunately this all comes with a price, and a hefty one at that. With the Taguel class comes permanent association with the Beast classification and a perpetual fear of Beast Killers. Moreover, the Taguel class sucks since its best caps are mediocre Skill and Speed scores and even with Beast weaknesses being a common thing, having to be saddled with a 1-ranged unforgeable weapon just to use Beastbane makes it worthless. But even worse is that his mother has neither of the two female exclusive class trees which means Yarne will miss out on being a member of the Galeforce or even the Dual Support+ Brigade. This means his mother should prioritize the class that Yarne will not inherit, Griffin Rider for either its Deliverer or Lancebreaker skill for either enhanced move or a means of counteracting his perpetual weakness.

His best choices for father would be Lon'qu (to maximize his Speed and Skill modifiers as a +7 in Speed means that even as a Wyvern Lord, Yarne will be faster than most classes, and he'll have a juicy +6 for skill activation rates, and with either a Speed or Skill focused Avatar as a wife, Morgan could achieve the highest Speed or Skill cap modifier possible respectfully, and on top of all that he'll have access to Swordmaster for Swordfaire, Astra, Avoid+10, and Griffin Rider to enable access to the +3 Move from Movement +1/Deliverer combo), Virion (for Wyvern Rider access, Archer access in case his +5 Skill modifier isn't enough to hit everything that moves, a solid +2 Speed for a +6 Speed modifer, and Mage access to round out his 9 class inheritance), Stahl (his juicy +3 stat cap modifier total will go great with Panne's +4, his +2 Strength and Defense modifiers round out Yarne fantastically, and his 8 class inheritance includes the Cavalier, Myrmidon, and Archer class trees), and Ricken (for maximum horsing around). Yarne himself is also the second best husband for a Female Avatar (next to Chrom) due to the aforementioned max/near max possible Skill/Speed for Male Morgan to go with his Aggressor/Galeforce/Limit Breaker/Whatever Faire he needs to rock and/or roll/and an attack boosting skill like Ignis/Astra/Luna/possibly Vengeance (and all for the price of Taguel access and permanent Beast Killer/Rapier/Noble Rapier weakness).

Basically, Yarne has the stats, but needs the classes to be good. Unfortunately, as physically oriented as Yarne's mom is, it leaves Yarne with serious gaps in his repartee that drag his performance down in the postgame and challenge DLC and no father can really fix them (not even a Male Avatar; though he helps a lot with Rally Spectrum and Defense access to go with his Rally Strength).

He's using one of those electronic toothbrushes. The really fancy kind, with the knobbly bits on the handle, and like five kinds of bristles?

Sheeeeeit son that's a *good* clean.

Nah man. He's using one of those 'future' toothbrushes that just beam up the plaque. Just get the brush to within transporter range and beam your plaque into a Klingon's mouth, where it'll be no tribble a'tal. Four out of five Scotties recommend Transbrushers. #starfleetmedicalassociation

Still maintain that Enterprise was part of Quantum Leap and had Sam jumping into the future.

Would he be the shadowy future time war guy? It all makes sense!
3531  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Trek or Wars.. on: March 12, 2014, 08:03:32 PM
don't seem to have any idea what Star Trek is all about

TOS was about Kirk getting a lot of pussy while being a complete (and vaguely xenophobic) asshat, also everything took place in an abandoned office park in New Mexico for some reason.

I'm pretty sure Star Trek up till DS9 was about #firstworldproblems, then became #wannagohome for Voyager and #weranoutofideashalfwaythroughvoyager for Enterprise.
3532  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The hardest game you ever beat. on: March 12, 2014, 07:27:13 PM
It took me around 2 hours to beat the last boss of Terranigma.
I was so under-leveled, I was doing 1 damage per attack (with any spear, so I just switched to the starter spear for the slow HP regen)

I'm not listing that as the hardest because the boss' pattern is stupidly easy. Granted I had to play it very safe so I wouldn't get hit - giving me about 2-5 damage per exchange.

Hopefully you weren't using the Block Spear before switching back to the Crystal Spear, because the Block Spear purposefully nukes your attack in favor of buffing your defense (it was a mistake I made on that three legged robot boss at the end of chapter 3).

That said, Demon's Crest has probably one of the hardest final boss fights going, and beating Megaman Zero on Hard without using any Cyber Elves was the hardest game for me.

Out of the boringness that is chapter 5 and now I've got end game gear/spells and a chest key. Time to hunt some treasure.

Also, I just want to say that Rage is probably the most ridiculous attack in the game. Up to five Dark based hits at 1.25 damage for just one action and 3 Brave, and the skill set it comes with also has an ability that gives you five turns at 150% power at no further cost than a single action, plus a 1 slot support ability that automatically ups the power of all Dark based attacks made by that person, and the P.Atk +30% ability? Hell fucking yeah. Almost 50k in one shot. Sure you'll need to heal and recharge your BP before you can pop another one, but nothing really even comes close to the sheer amount of damage you can dish all at once for the amount of BP it costs.

I think you spelled "completely ruined by" incorrectly.

Right, because the Romulans cloning Picard thinking he's the Federation's equivalent to Big Boss or something then giving him like 5 battleships duct taped together into one boring ass monstrosity was totally something that could be ruined (not to mention killing off Data and replacing him with Before).

Hey guys I have been contemplating this game and I was wondering if it is worth a buy?
Oh yes.

Don't listen too much to what people think about the second half of the game. If you like challenging boss fights and character development, the second half isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be.

Character development? What game did you play that I didn't? haha Seriously though, I don't remember much character development past chapter 5 except for Ringabel, who is probably the best character once the shallow womanizer thing starts wearing off by the end.
Well, let's just say "other" people get character development, if you know what I mean...

You can spoil it a little if it helps to make communication easier. Bear in mind I watched an entire playthrough of the latest South Park game just to see if I'd like it and now I want it even more. I don't mind small spoilers. Just the big gapping twists I'd like to avoid.

The Tiz x Angés relationship is just as boring as the participants themselves.

I want to believe that's a real critter tied to her umbrella, but I know this is a Tales of game so I know that its just an accessory (or part of the umbrella itself).

Also, lolipop here either has really short shins or really fuckin' large booties.

Both suck.

Trek has been sucking less lately with the Abrams movies, but Third Trilogy is on the way and could redeem some of the Second Trilogy (not all, mind).

But for my track record, Wars as a kid (thanks Muppet Babies), moved onto Trek as I got older (especially with DS9 and going back to TOS), then Voyager/Enterprise/Trek 10/New Trilogy killed both for me.

What about the Joan of Arc episode? It featured a matriarchal society where men are treated as useless. I'm not sure how it reinforces your argument.

EDIT: Sweet! I decided that I would draw in MS paint something about the post that replied to my 3000th one. Now I have to draw Quatro as Char.

It was just a goofy, one-off episode that I just wanted to bring up.

Also, congrats on your 3000th post, wherever it was made.
3539  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: March 11, 2014, 02:24:06 PM
I had a feeling my long post would disappear instantly with a new page ;_;

Are you sure you watched what I'm currently watching, because the Orguss that I'm in the middle of watching had that goofy Emarian rule of "If you don't settle down and have kids by 17, you're off the female team." that kinda put a damper on the whole 'women not being treated as mere sex objects' thing. Not to mention the one off episode about the women's only society with Joan of Arc overthrowing Marie Antoinette.

Also, I have no idea about what you are talking about. Kei's pre-timeskip girlfriend being Macross's Minmey? That'd be like Zeta Gundam's Quattro being a Char. Totally not a thing. Totally.... ;<.<

And speaking of which, I'm currently up to the Kei and Athena's Excellent Adventure episode in Orguss.

Also also, I can't believe you didn't mention the show's soundtrack. Sure most of it is incidental BGMs but the opening and ending themes are great.

60 hours in and I'm standing in front of the final boss after doing the same shit FIVE times. FINALLY. I've never been ready to finish a game I had previously loved so much in my life. Oh how things can change. Too bad I had to go to work, so it will have to wait until tonight. Any suggestions on that final boss from my fellow RPGer's?

Something tells me that your final boss will be different from the previous chapters' final boss, so unfortunately, I have nothing useful for you yet (beyond setting up a Dark Knight with the Rage ability, Gloom, a Support set that includes a full heal option, and all the damage increasing abilities you can cram into your ability slots, and either a Spiritmaster or Salve-Maker support by raising your Dark ability and lowering the boss's Dark resistance, and any method of building 150% P.Atk onto your DK while dropping the boss's P.Def to 75%; then you just Bravely Second, drop a maximized Rage onto the boss, full heal, then Rage again, and if he's still standing after that, have your healer full heal your DK and Rage again).

Something tells me you broke the crystals and Airy was your final boss in Chapter 7 (or was it 8, I forget). I just beat Airy in the final dungeon after she gets completely healed back to full like three times in a row. It was so infuriating. I hate when games do that. Just let them have 500,000 HP instead of hiding it and having 150,000-200,000 three times.

Start of Chapter 5. But yes.

Either way, all I know is that she has three forms and isn't that hard. Her first form is gimmick based and Rampart will likely keep one or two of your guys standing when she throws her super attack at you. The second is magical so either a Spiritmaster and/or a Salve-Maker can pass around anti-elemental effects around while you unload into her. And the third was like status based, a hybrid of physical and magical, or something other thing and is the only mildly threatening form she has.
