Alright. You guys talked me into it. I've signed up, so drop me a line when you feel up to playing a game.

And here I thought you were being facetious.

Looking at that list, I'd say its going to be Space Dandy (although I have a feeling that its going to wind up like Kill la Kill in that a lot of people aren't going to be able to look past the raunchy fanservice) and Silver Spoon R2, with Nobunagun (only one of two battle series featuring historical figures), Robot Girls Z (could wind up as a second Girls und Panzer or as Super Robot K-on), and either Sekai Sefuku (could be the first show in a while to feature a villainous organization as inept and ridiculous as ACROSS) or Wizard Barristers (Magical Girls: Ace Attorney) having the potential to be good despite their descriptions (also possibly Sailor Moon if it ever comes out).


That said, checked out Summer Wars yesterday. It was a cute movie, with a feel good message, and a conflict that could definitely be a real thing (although not nearly as Hollywood logic about it). Next Week: FMA: Conquerer of Shambal-no, fuck that shit. Next week I catch up on some more Manga.

Some localization information. I suppose this means I mustn't let Ringabel run away from any battles. :v

inb4 How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Not to be confused with that lame live action The Grinch movie.

And a shame on all of you for not mentioning the classic Garfield Christmas Special.

Plus how can I post in a thread about Christmas specials and not mention the Star Wars Christmas Special?

Having a REAL hard time pulling myself away from Suikoden 2.

The weekend is almost over, and while I intended to keep suikoden 2 my weekend game and start FF 13-2 as my weekday agenda, I am beginning to think that is not a smart move...

The story is Suiko 2 just grabs you and doesn't let go. Even in spite of the horrible spoiler I ran across (ruined a major ending event on myself) it is clear to me now there is GRAND amounts of plot to enjoy here. That single spoiler was minor in grand scheme of the narrative content (thank you to Aeolus again for reassuring me of that fact).

So how about some advice folks? I really want to start 13-2 so I could finish it by the time 13-3 comes out. Do I divide my efforts or focus on Suikoden 2? Normally dividing my attention between 2 games is easy... but in this case I find it hard to not think about Suikoden 2.... while I am driving, working, sleeping and eating at this point.... I feel like this is one particular case of a tale that is meant to be digested in a game-a-thon type fashion of 3-5 hour play periods without interruption but I don't want to burn myself out.

Focus on Suki 2.

As long as you know that time crashes at the end of XIII-2, you'll be up to speed for XIII-3. Besides, Suki 2 is definitely the better game (even in spite of all the bugs).

I wanna smush Airy. She is such a bitch.

Code:
Now remove the FF from the game's subtitle...

I was almost in a scene there.

Almost.

You know, given that he's playing the GBA version, we might not be seeing Starmoggoose until well into the WoR.

Hope you enjoy your fall.

My GotY so far would either be FE:Awakening or LoZ:aLBW.

Runner up would be the other one.

Not-'013 GotY would be Ys Origin (since I finally got around to playing that this year).

Biggest Disappointment would be Time and Eternity by a country mile. Never before have I seen such great talent, wasted so badly.

But in all honesty, I don't play enough of the latest and greatest to really give a fair opinion on what came out this year. These are just the standouts.

I guess a good way as any to handle the boring filler that is getting Banon the rest of the way to Narshe.

Wait. I think I remember what you're talking about now. As long as you didn't complete their quest, Futch and Humphrey will still be waiting for you at the foot of the mountain (this is of course, the reason why I told you to not worry about collecting the 108 SoD until after you hit N.Window). Although, if you did complete their quest before getting your headquarters then that's beyond what I did in my two runs of the game.



Yes sir you hit the nail on head. That was exactly what I was talking about. I really wasn't trying to not heed your advice... my tendency toward exploration just bested me really... the world Suikoden 2 is soooo vast in contrast to 1. I simply couldn't help myself. Next thing I knew I was indeed involved in the Humphrey/Futch quest and getting my ass handed to me. Enemy level aside, NPC dialogue lead me to believe I had screwed up the proper "order or operation".

And no sir. I did not complete their quest. In spite of all of Humphrey's import-data-might I failed.

When I checked to see if I could leave and return to the quest later when I was supposed to, or if I indeed needed to reload an earlier save (i always play it safe) was when the dreaded spoiler was glimpsed.

Actually, that sequence break is well known as a notorious power leveling trick that makes the majority of the game a cakewalk (not that the game is that hard to begin with; tactical battles aside), and makes actually completing Clive's sidequest a hell of a lot easier since getting a gameover allows you to keep your levels and experience and nothing else (especially the time elapsed from the point you died at to your last save).

Aside from the whole 'we don't yet have the actual license from Capcom to actually make this yet' part, this looks to be yet another indication that fans are actually better at this whole 'making Megaman games' than Capcom is.

Of course, I full suspect that Capcom will stay quite about this project until it starts turning a profit, then they'll swoop in, buy out the company, and gut it so that they can absorb the carcase and the impending profits.

HOW DID I NOT NOTICE THIS UNTIL LIKE TEN MINUTES AGO.

This feels like a male version of Serah Farron looking like the main chick from Bible Black.

I don't know what's weirder, that comparison or the fact that Dice knew enough about Bible Black to make it.

... Also i feel like a 3D remake of Dragon Force for the 3DS would be... rather appropriate and probably a good use of the 3D effects. Give M2 some more work :D

That, I would love to see happen.
3555  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: December 13, 2013, 09:51:36 PM
It isn't my first run. I played through each upon release. The first and second just happened to come out so long ago that I have vague recollections of them. I chose to aim for 108 for all the data import goodies from 1-3.

Reading that sure jogged my memory though...

So come on Aeolus.... tell me there is more major-plottage worth seeing aside from what I have just effectively spoiled...

Additionally...



And this is why you don't go playing for all 108 stars on your first run.

For what its worth, my best advice is to remember what happens when you do collect all 108 SoDs in other Suikoden games.

I see where you are going with that.... I think... Say no more.

EDIT: Most importantly tell me I didn't ruin christmas!!!

Wait. I think I remember what you're talking about now. As long as you didn't complete their quest, Futch and Humphrey will still be waiting for you at the foot of the mountain (this is of course, the reason why I told you to not worry about collecting the 108 SoD until after you hit N.Window). Although, if you did complete their quest before getting your headquarters then that's beyond what I did in my two runs of the game.

As for major plottage, oh hell yeah. This is a numbered Suikoden game after all, even with 108 recruitable characters there's still plenty of death and destruction to go around. The one big thing that you can change (aside from the description you gave) depends on whether you run from Tinto or not, and if you decide to, then how far you run to.

And if you're really worried about Christmas, don't be. If Fox News' War on Christmas can't ruin the season, I highly doubt you'll be able to do anything to it on your own (and if something does happen, just remember: There's always X-mas).
