Watch out for the low flying UFB (unidentified flying boombox).

Xenoblade - I got to the point where the Mechon attack the city. I'm now busting shit up with the Monado. But then I encountered this big face mask boss that requires a chain attack to "break" it. Well, for the life of me, I couldn't do one! Yes, I saw the ultra=brief tutorial on it, but I blanked during the battle. Something about matching colors or some other nonsense. I go to check in the manual, and there's no Chain Attack section! Ugh. Ended up just turning the game off because I couldn't hurt the guy, and couldn't flee the battle.


All you need to know is that Pink Arts inflict Break and Green Arts are the ones that inflict Topple. With a full party gauge (blue bar on the top left corner of the screen) press up on the D-Pad at any point on the arts' pallet (doesn't matter where) until the center circle is replaced by a blue circle with a white triangle symbol in the middle then press that. Then have Shulk hit the boss with one of his Pink arts and it should switch to Reyn where you use his Green art to topple the boss (then have Dunban do whatever; Monado Buster, Gale Strike, whatever).

Or to summarize: If you're playing as Shulk: Chain Attack, Pink, Green, Profit. If you're playing as Reyn: Wait for Shulk/Dunban to inflict Break, Chain Attack, Green, Profit.

Hey now! I find that picture to be badly misinformed and unfunny. Squaresoft has nothing to do with this travesty beyond dying almost a decade ago.

Doesn't even deserve it's own thread until either Escaflowne or Magic Knight Rayearth shows up.

Wait, has MKR ever been in SRW? I picked up SRT PS3 on a whim thanks to a present and it's enjoyable. Very relieved how import-friendly it is(in that the gameplay is very simple). No clue what's going on, but that applied to the official localizations of OG1&2 as well, so no loss.

Nope, and neither has Escaflowne nor Sakura Taisen or Xenoglossia. Of course I say this because, as of this game, Hatsume Miku has been included (piloting a Hatsume Miku robot no less), and between that and a visual novel inclusion, all bets are effectively off. Of course, who the hell wants to see Hatsume Miku in an SRW? The other ones sure, but Vocaloids?

The best casting choice made so far for UX has been the inclusion of an SD Gundam series alongside SeeD Destiny and that awful Trailblazer movie for maximum Gundam becomings and Seed Destiny trolling (that and the possibility of a "Crisis of infinite Demonbanes" scenario).

Why not load up on some XBLA games like Shadow Complex? It should be a quick and dirty timewaster for the next two days or so.

Also, for the love of god do not get the 360 version of The Last Remnant. The PC version is vastly superior and cheaper to get to boot.

Details of the game's double system. Looks like they're trying to balance partners by giving all single units 'attack again'. Sounds potentially gamebreaking right there.

Also goddamn, it looks like the Macross Quarter didn't receive so much as a touch up compared to what was used in L. Talk about phoning it in.

So the 'fortune teller' is being called the 'hubba tester' now. How very appropriate.

What if there was a game where you literally had to scream faggot as much as possible to attack things?

Someday that game will exist.

I thought it all ready did.

I'm in the same bote. A vibrant world with dat music, especially on dat bote, and there are things you can do and look out for like finding treasure chests or tamable monsters.
3550  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem 3DS on: January 18, 2013, 03:33:28 AM
Music isn't great and the animations are too slow.

Otherwise, I'm really digging it.

I actually like the music! Also, I could be wrong but wasn't there an option to speed up the animations? I didn't want to do that because I was really enjoying them, but I can imagine after 40 hours of play I'd want to speed it up.

EDIT: I like the music, though I admit so far it's a bit sparse. The combat tune is fun though!

Yeah, there's definitely a fast forward button on the bottom screen along with a pause and first person view button.

Of all the; why the fuck is Lightning at the top? I would've guessed that Titfa would've been Japan's no.1 over miss "OMG, WE'RE PETS!". Yuna and Aeris aren't too surprising but Lightning and Tifa should've been switched. Serah-chan is also way too high, but it does make at least some kind of sense given that she is a Serah-chan (maybe that X is a typo).

Love that Faris is as high as she is though, and as awful as Riona is I also can't really complain about her position given the general competition and that she tied with Rydia. Beatrix and Agrias being as low as they are is rather disappointing though.


Elephant?

Well, I know that people is still salty over XIII after all these years but I just wanna know how this is going to end.

You've never heard of the metaphor about the elephant in the room before?
3552  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, The Last 13 Days on: January 17, 2013, 06:23:55 PM
Is kinda cute seeing people hating on the game because almost everyone is doing it online. You would think that after 4 years people would just ignore what they aren't into instead repeating over and over the same sentece.

Not that I'm offended by all the hate or anything, is just that we all know by now how this goes and it became boring a long time ago.

I'm more interested in seeing just how far down this rabbit hole goes.

Also given the general lack of interesting RPGs that come out these days its hard to not talk about the elephant in the room.

And here we go again. Another horribly tragic event occurs, people start looking for convenient scapegoats, and point their fingers at whatever medium is still relatively new and or fresh.

That said, I wouldn't be surprised if this one actually made it onto the books given that its Missouri and they're not even looking for a slap on the wrist.

And speaking of dry humping.

http://www.siliconera.com/2013/01/17/final-fantasy-all-the-bravests-joke-on-players-a-pig-is-a-premium-character/

Blow a $ to spin the wheel. Might as well hold a race in the men's restroom to see who can flush their money down the toilet fastest.

I hope to god somebody makes an alike on Newgrounds just to piss on Squeenix's parade just like they did with Megaman Xover.
