So they're going with plan A after all. Do the exact same thing as the last 3-4 years except even more so in hopes that their targeted demographic is as misguided and financially irresponsible as they are. No damage control, no backpedaling, and no fucks given.

There's no party in the barracks for me as Marth killed Donnel with a double attack.

You've got to be lying, simply because Donnel is invincible.

He probably just got the guy and decided to field him as is in the next story battle, and promptly got him killed in the process.

The lesson is to never assume the boss can't move until you step someone up to his/her attack range. Additionally, Awakening is actually brutally honest about these things. Just by checking the boss's movement/attack ranges you can tell immediately if the boss is going to be stationary or not (if the boss displays their full movement range, it means they will move; if it only displays their immediate attack radius, then they won't).

so the demo's out in NA, it plays exactly like Namco x Capcom but with assists and some more mechanics, not that I think it's a bad thing.

Demo isn't bad, but it's extremely short. This game isn't worth full price for me, but I will pick it up when the price drops.

Same here, except that I'm getting it at full price anyways to show my support for more SRW games and some of the other included series.

There's no party in the barracks for me as Marth killed Donnel with a double attack. It's how I learned the bosses will actually move now. Sometimes.

Lucina was SO grounded.

Speaking of Lucina I noticed she can S support and presumably marry Owain.

Lissa's son Owain.

Her cousin.

I wonder if they completely overlooked that or just PRETENDED to completely overlook that to pull a Lannister light.

I suspect the spoilered possible relationship is more of a reference to the possible relationship between Larcei and Shanan in FE4, as the two are also immediate cousins.

Still better than either Voyager or Enterprise.

Besides, they're movies. The last time they tried to make a movie like an episode of Star Trek, they called it The Motion Picture and it sucked royally.

Though I will admit the new Treks lacking the camaraderie between the characters that the original series had.

So where's the "Happy Birthday Donnel!" post?

Belated birthdays aside though, once you get Donnel a few levels under his belt (and preferably a forged weapon or two) he'll turn into a decent fighter. And then you reclass him and watch him shoot off like a rocket (even if he has to dick around with a crappy bronze weapon or two again). He's the reason why Chrom isn't the best character in the main story missions despite his early lead. Moreover, between Armsthrift and his high luck cap, he can wield otherwise scarce weapons with impunity which gives him the edge over Chrom should you decide to invest in him. He's also the best father for Kjelle, even beating out the Avatar since he gives two of the three most desirable class trees in the game, both of which Kjelle wants, and causes absolutely no conflicts towards Sully's sizable inheritance (although both the Villager and Warrior skills leave something to be desired as Zeal is probably the most useful of the bunch, though Counter is useful for Double Duel at least).

But then we get into post game where the children mock him outright and his lack of skills as well as anybody with access to Galeforce or Dark Magic and even guys like Chrom can eventually surpass him. He only has 6 classes (7 if you include Dread Fighter), and of those classes he'll essentially have the Mercenary/Hero skills, Bow Knight's Bowbreaker, Fighter's Zeal, and the DLC skills (of which only the Dread Fighter skills, Limit Break, and All Stats +2 are really worth anything to him). Of note is that only the sword Sword Breaker offers him any sort of anti-sword capacity since his only class with lance access is Villager which sucks out loud and that Bow Knight is his only mounted option. Incidentally, he's also a key component of a male Morgan with the highest possible natural luck cap of 51 (he's also the worst father for skill (which also hurts him since he wont proc Sol as often as other 1st gen males with skill based skills) and is a key component for making a Morgan with the lowest natural skill cap in the game of 30 as a Great Knight, 20 as a Wyvern Rider/Cleric/Troubadour, 19 as a Barbarian, and a miniscule 16 as a Villager).

I think what's to be learned of this is that either J.J. Abrams or a few of his more relied upon writers has played Mass Effect.

I guess I should be looking forward to Star Wars: Episode VII. Return of the Normandy.

Made some headway into both Ys Origins and Crimson Shroud. Up to the earth section with the grrl and about to enter into chapter four respectfully.
3639  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Random and Amazing Pictures, Please! on: June 05, 2013, 12:39:59 AM

That's what you get for having terrible stat distribution.

No wait, that's Vaporeon.

Welp. Guess I should've seen this coming.

Maybe next time they can get a director who knows what they're doing to sign on. :/

Started up Ys Origin because, reasons. Made it to the fire dungeon with the chick. Surprisingly playable, even with laptop controls.

See what I mean guys. What's there to look forward to aside from more football soccer, and more Metal Gear?

Super Fire Emblem Awakening: Extreme Elimination Challenge

Just cleared Chapter 16 and managed to endure the gauntlet of Warriors, Heroes, Falcon Knights, Bow Knights, and Snipers. Lost Leonardo, Nyna, and NA Marth (which sucks because I liked having a unit with Good Growths and Charm; oh well, either way I still have two more to pick from). Went on a recruitment drive and picked up Moulder, Athena, Quan, and Altena. Got to Chapter 17, realized I needed two healers, backed out, then recruited Raquesis at the expense of all my temp stat boosters so I ended up having to hit up Golden Gaffe again which means....

As for the unfortunate grinding I've had to partake in. I've made....
-One run through Champions of Yore 1.
-One run through Champions of Yore 2.
-One run through Champions of Yore 3. (The All Stats +2 skill scroll went to Chrom respectfully.)
-Five runs through Golden Gaffe. (I managed to collect all of the funds on the fourth run.)
-One run through Exponential Experience.
-One skirmish battle.

As for character performances, Chrom has hit his Strength, Skill, and Speed caps (so any further stat boosters will be held on to for phase 3 of my plan), Est is still queen shit wrecker (especially now that she's built up enough weapon ranks to use Steel Swords), Mycen still an armored backpack with good weapon selections, Altena's a flying brick shit house (magic will annihilate her but that's what pairing her up with a Battle Priest and burning through Pure Waters are for), Quan's balanced as all hell and has a good skill selection, Athena's making for a good speed booster (overall a better replacement for NA Marth), I really want to still keep using Florina and Micaiah but Florina still can't take more than a single hit and Micaiah is too far behind to contribute as anything more than a magic charger, Mia's still my walking lockpick and if it ever comes to it, I'm jettisoning Amelia at the first sign of trouble (she's crap and not even really worth it as an armored backpack anymore).

Of course the enemy has stepped it up too and are finally using Lunatic exclusive skills in story missions. Now enemies are sporting Hit+10.

Hannibal= I'm surprised a series this graphic is airing on NBC. Enjoying the series so far even though it's a bit gruesome for my tastes, the one fight scene they had so far was pretty awesome. The dynamics between the characters are interesting and curious to see where it goes.

Arrested Development= Don't quite know how I feel about the new season. The episodes are all focused on specific characters POV on the seasons events and will probably view the season a few times to put it all together.

Side note, Falling Skies season premiere in like a week, am excite.

Wait. There's a new season of Arrested Development? Why didn't anyone mention this sooner!?
