So for those of you who missed this 2-3 years ago, here's your second chance.

We got Robocop over here in Asia earlier than you folk, so I saw it opening night.

It had its flaws but I thought it was pretty good.

So I have to ask, was this Robocop more or less agile than Keaton's Batman?

^ Indeed, I'm curious in this series now.  I was too late on 3, so...
Might be fun :D

Wow.  An interesting start to turning things around

The sad part is that the DS still had games coming out for it not more than 3 years ago.

At least my hopes for seeing an officially localized version of that second Fire Emblem game has officially been rekindl....shit. I can't finish that sentence. This is still Nintendo we're talking about. They probably won't localize any game they put up on their VC (even assuming we'd ever get it).

At least, if Squeenix were to play ball (ahahaha; yeah, sure; and on that day I'll turn into a Chocobo), we might just see a VC port of DQV.

Shit! IS there a DS game I'd like to see on the WiiU? I'm pretty sure I got all the ones I cared about back when they were coming out (besides, the DS era SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKED!!!!!).

Pardon the necrobump, but hey! Remember this Persona knockoff? Turns out somebody thought it was a good idea to localize it (and someone else agreed).

It's the biggest gay dream to place ones crotch on a pair of incestuous transforming ice deities.

When you put it that way..It's quite silly I asked but I was looking at it from another angle.
It might be that demon princess person biggest dream though.

Nah, Kay would probably have preferred Serah or Vanille added to the mix rather than Snow.

I'd go into why Vanille's Transformer summon would fit into this discussion but I think I'll leave it for Holykael1 to discover.

Also, who could hate on the magical, flying, time traveling, ice motorcycle made out of a pair of lesbian twin transformers symmetrically docking with each other (with said docking location forming the all important seat; talk about gettin' on the threeway)?

Western developers on the other hand...

Will happily stuff a token female clad in nothing but thigh high boots, a chainmail bikini, and five pounds of makeup strutting around like she's perpetually on a model runway and will never have more than five facial expressions (i.e. Sexual, The Other Sexual, Bitch Face, Bitch-slapped Face, and "I NEED MY MAN!" Face....; wait, I think I'm getting video games conflated with comic books again; well the other points still stand).

Basically, Japan isn't the only one to have issues with portraying females as anything but sexual objects. Its just more noticeable to us due to cultural differences and the fact that we've spent more than a few years sperging out about it.

Do you guys subscribe to a channel or something?  Or crunchyroll?  I feel like it's a pain to track latest releases or old releases the way you all seem to.

All I've been doing is watching on Hulu and whatever comes out on Adult Swim. Given that, up until recently I haven't been following anime too closely due to earlier burn out, I know that there's a ton of recent anime I haven't checked out yet.

Its like they're gettin' the band back together here, kinda.

I just played


for review.

It was quite good.  Best game that


has put out in a while.

Who wants to start placing bets?  I'm going with Danganronpa.

I suspect either Demon Gaze or Conception 2.

What are you guys talking about? Estelle only has an outfit for each of her two main games and the occasional incidental outfit like the knight's costume for the play and her nightgown.
I'm of course, referring to an entirely different Estelle than the one you're referring to (see: below).

Also, these TitS aren't fully clean unless they're Zeiss fully clean.

Dumb jokes aside, I've made it on over to Zeiss in TitS:FC. Took a stopover in the Limestone Cave to nearly get my ass handed to me burn through my stockpile of uneaten food products loot some chests. Too bad the rewards won't be worth it for awhile (at least I have a shitload of fish now).

If Mongoosey and I did a DBZ "FUUUSION!" this would be out spirit animal....yea.

Leave it to Bee-ver.
3642  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust making a spiritual successor to Ar Tonelico: Ar no Surge on: January 27, 2014, 04:56:20 PM
It's because there's active contact with our world and dimension in both Ciel nosurge and here: the people of that world call their own world "Ciel", while they call ours "Earthes", as it can be seen in the BIOS-startup screen at the beginning of the opening video. And it happens to be that the robot is called "EARTHES" too, so the most commonly believed theory is that EARTHES is actually an avatar for the player due to being the terminal the player used to communicate with Ion in Ciel nosurge being remodeled by her into the robot we see here.

I figured as much given how Ciel no Surge was basically a dating sim, and how much the non-robotized main character seems to be hanging with the other female lead a lot more than Ion.

Is Gregor's birthday yeah. Is swell day for swell sword.

Anyways, the biggest thing Gregor has going for him is being the only first genner defaulting in the Mercenary class which means instant access to Armsthrift (and given his level, Patience). This means he doesn't have to reclass down to pick it up later like other characters with Mercenary access (although this only really applies to Priam, Cordelia, and The Avatar as Donnel will probably want to bail into Merc ASAP and Flavia already starts as a Hero with both Merc skills). His other classes include the Myrmidon and Barbarian class trees which means that he can end up with both Sword and Axefaire which are his two predominate weapon types, Sol, Astra, Wrath (for all the good this is worth), Vantage (to go with Wrath and Patience), Despoil (to further cut expenses for fielding Gregor), Gamble, Lethality (even if enemies make better use of it), Counter (see: Lethality), Avoid +10, and Axebreaker (not that he needs this because of Sword access but its nice to have while a Barbarian/Berserker).

As for his genetics, if you want the most screwed over child in the game, pair him with Olivia for an Inigo with only the Mercenary, Myrmidon, and Barbarian class trees and whatever his mother decided to pass down to him (if you really don't like Inigo, have her pass down Special Dance or Lancefaire, both of which are entirely useless skills to him). Not only that, but Gregor's emphasis on Strength and Skill, and lesser emphasis on Defense only kinda, sorta addresses Olivia's lack of anything beyond a small amount of Skill and Speed and hit to Defense, but his bottomed out Resistance and overall +1 stat cap modifier total don't play well with Olivia's hit to Resistance and non existent stat cap modifier total. Incidentally, Gregor seems like he'd make for a good fit for his charge in his introductory stage, Nowi, given her massive +5 total stat cap modifier total, solid Strength, Defense, and Resistance cap modifiers, and Wyvern Knight class tree to go with his Bowbreaker (plus Nah will probably appreciate Armsthrift, Astra, and the Hero class in general). Alternatively, Brady, Noire, and Kjelle all have at least some interest in Gregor's genes even if his inheritance clashes with Maribelle's (although the Cavalier tree would appreciate the gesture), doesn't really stack up as well as Gaius's does (even Myrmidon access can't compete with Peg Knight access), or Donnel's (again no Pegasus Knight access, with only slightly better Strength and Speed caps, much better Skill cap, and a far worse Luck cap and slightly worse Resistance cap in exchange). And again, much like The Vaike, pairing Gregor with either Cherche or Panne, then pairing the resulting child with a The Avatar with the lowest possible Resistance total will produce a Morgan with a Resistance cap modifier of -6).

The tl;dr is that Gregor will make for a solid replacement for another infantry unit, but his place at the table may get swiped by Donnel if he gets going before you get Gregor. His parenting options though aren't as swift though, and generally speaking, there will usually be a better choice available, though he makes for a good rebound for a daughter who misses out on either Donnel's or Gaius's Pegasus Knight inheritance.

Also, since we're coming up on the one year anniversary of the game's NA release (or are about to pass it if you're a filthy cannook ), I've double checked my previous posts and noticed that I didn't start writing these write ups until Maribelle's back in the middle of April '012 (and that was hilariously brief), so I'll probably continue unless something happens in the next couple of days.
3644  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Tomorrow ps4 JRPG announcement (2nd update) on: January 25, 2014, 09:28:32 PM
It's Ys undoubtedly, they mentioned something that is key!

"Falcom also shared new artworks for its mystery project teased last month. It is an action RPG. One of the descriptions in the character creation materials shown during the stream mention “A peddler returning from Altago,” suggesting the game is Ys-related (Altago is a region in Ys Seven)."

Edit: It might not be the PS4 JRPG but an Ys game is most indubitably in development.

They name drop Romn in TitS so there's no guarantee that it'll be Ys related (although that particular case may be a liberty taken with the localization, I've noticed a few inconsistencies over the course of the game like one of the caretakers of the Moonlight Inn named Limon being referred to as a male despite the female sprite (also I suspect that her name was also supposed to come out as Lemon given that the other proprietor is named Apple), and Kloe's S-Break is listed on her status screen as Radiant Plash (which admittedly, is a typo)).

Alternatively, it could be a Ys spin-off, a proper make of Ys V, or Ys VIII (its been since 2009 since Ys VII came out).

Welp. I've mastered the tankery that is World of Tanks: The Anime (i.e. Girls und Panzer). I gotta say, for something that sounds like Japan just took something at random, slathered it in moé, and called it an anime, its surprisingly watchable. There was a surprising lack of death for a show featuring the crappiest tin cans ever put on treads getting the crap blown out of them. If I had to name one joke as the best though, it would be having the Italian team getting rumbled off screen with little more than a brief mention of them.

And while I'm here....Kill la Kill: Episode 15. Alternate title "Giant Enemy Crab. Attack its weak point for massive damage.". Welp, now I know where the show's paltry budget's been getting funneled into these last couple of episodes. Also, I'm willing to go out on a limb and suspect that the Nudist Beach mecha were a homage to Macross's Valkyries in Gerwalk mode (not that they were useful as anything but canon fodder given their hilariously flawed design). Goddamn, this show's gonna have an amazing SRW entry (especially if it gets in for Z3-2).

Log Horizon: Episode 6. And at this point does the show finally step out of SAO's shadow and becomes its own beast (well episode 5 but episode 6 is where it picks a direction; and it starts with MMOÉconomics).

Princess Tutu: Episode 22.
And finally Drosselmire is revealed to be the true big bad. One more week and I'll be done with this.

Revolutionary Girl Utena: Episode 12. So done with an arc that episode 13 is a recap episode.
