Loving Bravely Default, very first side quest in the game gives you an optional 3F dungeon (though I can't stand those damn Greater Cats, they take forever to kill) Also playing some Senran Kagura to break up all the Bravely Default. There's a lot more content in that game than I thought there would be.

Get a pair of those Monk Knuckles from Norende and watch your Monk tear them a new one. Also Blizzard spam (though you'll want to save your MP for the boss because they are dodgy motherfuckers).

Speaking of, currently wrapping up said sidequest. Managed to swipe some nice loot from one of the bosses (too bad my Thief is now eating dirt, fuck that Merchant dude and his PG Toss, also fuck me for forgetting to reequip my Knight's Physical Def +10% and my Thief's Abate Fire passives).

I'll add my friend code in a bit, but a few thoughts.

I overleveled....waaaaaayyyyyyy too much. I doubled the encounter rate to make some money to buy weapons, amd before I knew it I was level 30 amd I just fought the dragon boss in the vestment cave, and I got unscathed and 1 turn victor on it. So yeah, overleveled much.

But beyond that, the game is fun. Music is nice, story is simple but funny. Ringabel is awesome. Monk is OP, by far. It demolishes fights. I am very pleased thus far.

Did you know that....

....you can turn off EXP gains or any other post battle gain like JP and Cash?

Now you know that.
I'm a tad insulted that you think I didn't know that, having adjusted the encounter rate which is in the same menu as said options.

To be fair, I was trying to quote Bill Nye The Science Guy with the way I phrased that. That said, its more of an in general 'good to know' thing (seriously, there are times where an option like this would come in handy, albeit mostly in games that do far stupider shit like level scaling) because there's been plenty of press in terms of adjusting encounter rates and not enough (IMO) on adjusting post battle gains. #themoreyouknow #knowingishalfthebattle

I was going to get BD but the review mentioned that grinding is inevitable and that the dungeons are boring.

Yeeeeeeeeeah that gives me red flagsup.

Gaming - GOSH GAMING SURE IS HARD TO DO WHEN YOU OSTENSIBLY HAVE SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER fuck snow ffffffffffffff

I don't know. Right now I'm still blowing through everything that moves with only minimal grinding (like I may linger for an extra fight or two for one reason or another but nothing serious). It seems that the early game is more dependent on the quality of your weapon than anything else. Two well armed fighters and some low end Norende loot and you'll be flattening enemies in no time.

Of course, I'm only playing on Normal. Something tells me that I don't think I would want to put up with Hard Mode later on.


And while I'm on the subject, I currently have Tiz as a Freelancer still (mostly to pick up that anti-trap skill from the demo), Angés as a Monk (she had less experience as a Freelancer than Tiz), Ringabel as the resident White Mage, and Edea as the currently useless Black Mage (I have the spells, I just don't have a reason to use her beyond Treat spam).

Goddammit Banpresto. You had one of the best squad systems in an SRPG to date with Z1 yet you went with K/L's useless partner system? What the fuck!?

Eh. Maybe it won't suck this time around. I mean, K and L were the epitome of , so it can't be that hard to out do them.

Yeah, Gamestop tends to be a crapshoot more often than not. I've had my share of preorders and preorder bonuses disappear without a trace. Sometimes you can go shop hopping in hopes of finding the missing pieces if you ask the associate to call up and ask around but I wouldn't count on that either.

That said, this time went without incident and now I have my own swank CE BD FF. Right now I've just unlocked the village growth mechanic. Also I had to change the voices over to Japanese since Tiz shares the same VA as SAO's Keito and the reminder of the hot garbage that is SAO s2 is a bit too much.

I'm still playing SRW Original Generation myself, at episode 35. I'm liking it quite a bit, but I do feel the game has slowed down considerably. Must be all the units and obsessive customization I'm doing. It could also be that I've played a few dozen hours of Skyrim, which is a ton of fun, though I do feel like I'm playing just a graphic mod of Oblivion. This game has hardly made any meaningful improvements.

The thing about SRW games is that you've hit the part where all the key players have been introduced and the game is throwing a larger number of enemies at you whilst said enemies progressively become more bulletspongey. By the endgame enemy grunts will be as tougher than battleships. That said, if you're finding OG1 to have too many units, then you're going to be in trouble because OG1 has one of the smallest rosters in the series (to be fair though, most games either make weapon upgrades into a single unified attribute or not at all, but only the OG games really make you upgrade weapons individually).

A link with the relevant information for those still interested.

You know, if they're going with hexes triangles, then does anyone else think that they may have to drop the flanking mechanic from FFT/etc. or do you think they'll end up reengineering it to compensate for six sides?

I don't know, it's kind of fun to discuss walking disasters in action.

I mean, don't get me wrong, for the most part I don't care about graphics, it's just this screams low budget all around.  It's also confusing.  You'd think Aksys would co-develop something that would appeal to the audience they normally target.

To be fair, I was being pedantic.


Also, MindZero is pretty much a bargain bin dungeon crawler with allusions to Persona so that kinda fits within this.

I just finished Sora no Kiseki (Trails in the Sky) SC. The final chapter was nothing short of stunning. It was easily the best climax I've ever experienced in an RPG. The final boss deserves special mention. As well as the final boss music. (Definitely listen to it! But don't search for the last song by name; you'll encounter major spoilers in the first few results. The videos I linked are all safe though.)



Same here. (I was hoping to have finished FC before you wrapped up SC. Drat.)

King of the Nerds S2: Making Nerds Look Bad Since 2012. I hate this show so much but I can't help but watch fools doom themselves by saying something along the lines of "Hey. This is along the lines of my expertise. I have the advantage.". I think that so far, in both seasons, without fail, everyone who's even hinted at having a home court advantage over their opponent has immediately lost whatever it was that they were talking about. And with that said, holy crap. I haven't seen a rout this bad since the Super Bowl. That's the power of a shitlord for you.

Agents of SHELDON: Whoever said that this show is more like a cop drama than a superhero comicbook was close but I think this is probably closer to a spy drama instead. That said, I've got to at least give credit where credit's due for
Code:
having a villain actually shoot a plot important main character, right after monologuing, in the stomach, twice just to be sure (albeit with the caveat of leaving said character in a room with a rather conveniently placed hyperberic [s]time[/s] chamber sitting in the corner; at least he used that fact to make his getaway) instead of just leaving them in an easily escapable trap or invoking impeccable timing from the rest of the team/the calvary.

Got the NA version:

Was this on the EU release too?  Yay, my education will pay off.

I feel like this image is trying to tell me something but I can't seem to grasp it. Quick! Get me somebody literate!

I know I shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but holy crap that's one fuck ugly cover.

I've seen one man Unity projects look better than this.

I'm just glad they're shoving this out the door ASAP so that we can all stop talking about this ASAP.

Quiz is dead, Mongoosey got the plague

I dunno if you have spycams in my house, but you're right.

I'm dying from the flu currently. I'll update this if I make it.

Meanwhile the rest of us will be hiding in quarantine until then. Hopefully we won't start killing each other in the meantime.

I come bearing a new trailer, a release date, and a price point.
