And I'm fucking DONE.
Skyrim mod that changes ALL dragons with Thomas the Tank Engine.
1:50 for where the magic is about to start.  It is the greatest mod ever. xD

I actually laughed out loud. It just got better and better especially as everyone was so serious and it flowed perfectly.

Ralof: Jarl Ulfric! What was that? Could the legends be true?

And then people start getting tossed around like ragdolls by the apparently psychic Tank Engine.

Ah yes, is it Virion's Birthday, hmm hmm indeed, I completely forgot about it.

Anyways, Virion shows up during chapter 1 which makes him the game's token early game Archer (and the only default one outside of Noire). Unfortunately, like many who share this trope, Virion's starting stats are balls, especially that 6 Strength and 5 Speed (for reference, the only people you get who have Speed as low as that are Kellam, Ricken, and Normal or Hard mode Nowi, and the only ones with less are Lissa and Donnel with 4 and 3 Speed respectfully. That said, he starts to become an asset by Chapter 5 barring Chrom soloing the chapter with his Falchion or Lon'qu breaking out some ill gotten Wyrmslayer (admittedly Ricken has it harder here than Virion does due to Wind magic being really low powered at lower levels and the lack of 3 and a half chapters to grow in). It doesn't help that Archers have pretty crappy skills that only aid in hitting things (there are instances where this is useful but Archers aren't the class that benefits from this given that bows range from highly accurate to stupidly accurate *cough*Innes Bow*cough*), Rally Skill (gimmicky at best and better on Rallybots), Bowbreaker (only good for fliers), and Bowfaire (given how many classes use Bows to begin with (i.e. the Archer class tree, Assassins, Warriors, and Brides), this is by far the worst Faire skill in the game for players). That said, Virion does have the option of riding a Wyvern which is a great class for him to put his +Hit/Skill skills to work with less than accurate axes (including both the Violent Axe, which is anti-flier, and the Imposing Axe, a D ranked axe with a Silver weapon's might and a nigh unto non-existent Hit rate). He also has access to the Mage class tree for some reason (I guess to give him access to Wind magic to maintain his anti-air unit status). All that said, he might just be the best person to just keep as a Sniper for Towering, Long, and Double Bow use.

As for eugenics, he's really only okay due to his odd class set and his stat cap modifier total being only +1. In fact, his stat modifiers make him more or less a Lon'qu lite with +2 Skill and Speed cap mods at the expense of Defense and a little Luck (Res is a pricier stat for Lon'qu to take a hit in than Luck, but his even higher Skill and Speed more than compensate). That said, if you want to engineer a Morgan with the lowest Defense possible, just have Maribelle sleep with either Lon'qu or Virion then have a female Avatar sleep with the resulting Brady for a Morgan with a -7 in Defense (then for extra hilarity, make him into a Mage or Thief and watch him crumple like paper). As for ideal mates, Lissa's probably his best bet since Owain would benefit from the Mage class tree to make use of his mother's modifiers as well as Virion's Skill and Speed for even better Myrmidon/Swordmasterness; additionally Wyvern Lord can also go a long way towards shoring up his physical stats. After that is Panne in case she doesn't get Lon'qu since unlike Lon'qu, Virion has no class that overlaps with Yarne's defaults, and more importantly, provides him with the Wyvern Rider class tree his mother shortchanges him on (albeit, the Mage tree will be very much useless to Yarne). And the last of his top 3 is Cordelia who again will produce a skillful and fast child with him, and Severa will definitely benefit from Virion's Archer and Mage class trees to maximize her proficiency as a Sorcerer with Tomefaire, Magic+2, Hit+20 or Prescience (if she's Mire sniping), and Skill+2 (for maximum Vengeance and Sol), plus Wyvern Rider is just a solid class that can make use of her Bow/Tomebreaker skill combo in addition to her default Pegasus Knight class tree, even if she isn't actually getting Bow Knight (or Dark Knight) from Virion. His worst option is to pair with Nowi since Nah will only walk away with his fairly useless Archer class tree.

Basically Virion is your AA guy for most of the game but suffers from the usual 'early game Archers have bad bases' problem that usually is the primary reason why the Archer class sucks in general for the FE series (not like this game's class skills for Archers are helping him either). His mating situation is odd given his unusual Mage class tree but it also means that he'll always have something to offer provided somebody doesn't offer something better than him.

The brits haven't been this lucky since they got terranigma. Xenoblade.

Fixed (because seriously, a better part of a year is a pretty hefty amount of time to wait).

The one thing the first game has over later games is that you don't need a power point presentation to understand what the fuck's going on.

Well the game started and I was thinking : "Where the fuck are they? Spira? Why is Wakka there? Why is Tidus mentioned? Is KH1 part of FFX?"

It just seemed utterly pointless to include Wakka in the first part of the game.

To be fair, Sora and friends, being primarily a Squeenix characters needed someplace Squeenixy to start out in rather than "Meanwhile; at the Magic Kingdom: King Mickey summons his hereto unknown greatest general and hero, Sora.". Besides this is a crossover game, and FFX was the latest FF to come out. At least it was better than "Here. Have not-Sora and go through this tutorial area, playing minigames and whatnot. Then 40+ hours of playing as Sora, learn that not-Sora is stupidly important to the plot all of a sudden.".

Nevermind the dodgy bangs, what the hell is up with those feet/legs/shoes? That looks incredibly uncomfortable...

Jesus christ is she an amputee?

I'm wondering what those spikes sticking out of her calves are for?

Don't want it, don't buy it.

Same goes for the costumes. The game is going to have like 80 of them. Pretty sure the crappy, fanservicey ones are completely ignorable. From all I've seen, the good ones, the ones that actually *suit* Lightning imo far outnumber the silly ones. I don't care for 'catpeople', so I just don't play one in XIV and I'm sure not going to make Lightning dress up like one either.

Story wise, I don't expect much. I have yet to beat XIII-2, and I'm not going to play XIII, I'll be honest. I don't know if the XIII recap/synopsis they give you in 2 is going to be enough or if I'll need to do more homework...

I should go watch that recap while PSN is down.

Still, when it comes to LR, I basically expect what X-2 ended up like: Silly to meh story, fun to play. I'm okay with that.

And that's been my big concern of the game as well. How does it play?

XIII-1 was, in my eyes, a tech demo that had gotten the basics down but you can definitely tell just how completely engineered the gameplay experience was and how the game only really offered exactly one and only one way to play it.

Meanwhile, XIII-2 finally put the 'play' in the gameplay but what it offered wasn't really all that different from what games like Dragon Quest V or VI, among others, offered back on the Super Famicom/SuperNES. So my question became whether this game had anything else going for it that makes it worth playing over just picking up and playing through one or more of those games again? My answer, of course, was a resounding "Hell No!".

So that brings me to XIII-3 and whether it finally did something worth sinking 60-80 gameplay hours of my time into, and so far from the prerelease information we've gotten BarbieLightning Dolls to play dress up with, and four whole regions to do it in, with Majora Mask style sidequests galore (with the sidequests turning out to be WoW style instead).

So I'm an hour into Kingdom Hearts.

The camera is terrible. The platforming is annoying. The music is atrocious.

I'm on my second pointless fetch quest and I'm already ready to throw in the towel.

Does it get better?

Besides thinking the music is terrible (hopefully other islands get better): No.

At least I don't think so and I'm a decent enough fan of the series.

There are fun parts, but for the most part, the first title is sort of annoying,  It's that annoying kid at a party that just ain't got nothing on his bigger bro (KHII) and sis (KHBBS) and awkward but cool cousin (3DS).

The one thing the first game has over later games is that you don't need a power point presentation to understand what the fuck's going on.

SUB machine gun....HAH....
....I hope you're proud of that.

They had to squeeze Steel Diver in there somehow.

I'll just leave this one here since I haven't any hands on time to know what this means for the game.
3655  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, The Last 13 Days on: December 09, 2013, 04:39:56 AM

Making fans 'salty' since 20096.

Lets face it, people were probably complaining about Lightning looking like she-Cloud or the move away from turn based gameplay even as early as the now infamous E3 trailer.
3656  Media / Game Journals / Re: Final RPGFantasy VI on: December 09, 2013, 03:15:36 AM
I see what you did there.

I can also see Chroma tattooing himself slitting his momma's throat for a nickel.

Finished The Slayers: NEXT. Entertaining for the most part, despite the occasional filler episode and the last arc having like three episodes to resolve and forcing Sylphel and Zangalus (or whatever the other swordsman's name is) into the party at the last second for maximum dramabombing and being a Gourry substitute/Martina's boob prize love interest respectfully. And speaking of, Martina was pretty hilarious even if she kinda got too Team Rocket-y as the show wore on. Meanwhile, Xellos was definitely a better addition as Lina and Co.'s straight man. Anyways, up next is Princess Tutu Akira.

And speaking of....Akira. I don't know if this was progenitor of the whole "Forcing evolution is generally a bad idea/humanity's next stage of evolution is to turn into giant baby fetus blobs." plot craze in anime/videogames of the 90s/00s but it definitely has that in spades. That said, this is still a damn beautiful movie. Absolutely gorgeous in detail. Anyways, up next is Summer Wars.

And while I'm here, Kill la Kill episode 10. I will be absolutely surprised to not see this in an SRW game in the near future (maybe not Z3 but probably the next big one after that). It just keeps getting better and better.

Majestic Prince episode supplemental. Two named baddies dead and the plot continues to remain on its rails as Super Robot series of the week. Fortunately its still humorous when it doesn't take itself seriously. The sixth ranger isn't really adding anything him/herself but at least s/he's giving the rest of the cast some new material.

Revolutionary Girl Utena episode 5. Still no sign of the overall plot beyond everybody wants somebody to love/bone and blah blah World Revolution blah blah. So far, not-Prince Marth Miccy is the incestuous one.

Okay I said I would leave but I sort of have to reply to this to do, so...

The only thing I have a problem with is how you apparently feel the need to jump down the throat of anyone who says anything even kinda sorta negative about these games.  This thread is filled with examples of you doing that.  Frankly, it's kind of bizarre.  If you were responding to the criticisms raised that would be fine but most of the time you're not even saying anything new.  We already know how you feel, so why do you have to respond to every single criticism with the exact same thing?  What's the point?  It didn't change people's minds the first dozen times, so what is it going to do now?

Whatever I say is gonna come off in the wrong way so I'll just say that 'it doesn't matter'. I was never here to strangle throats or whatever, it just doesn't matter anymore.

Also I barely give much away for you guys to even know me in all this time and "the feelings" you think I have over XIII are most likely the wrong idea with how obtuse my messages were. That said I certainly don't care so why should you.

Alright, now I can go. Bye mofos!

I'm going to reply to this to see if he'll come back to get in the very, definitively, absolute, last post before eternally leaving forever again.

Man Yggdra, why you do this? There's no reason to feel bullied or threatened with Bannination, and your posting habits haven't been that bad up till now (even if you have occasionally disregarded forums posting etiquette in the past). And yeah, I can be an ass and rather salty at times, but I've gotten much better about it, you don't have to go. q_q

Screenshots and details about the sequel, albeit not a lot (and I wouldn't trust what's in here until I can see proof that Tiz is back in this).

I hate short bangs... (childhood trauma talking)

She looks like Suikoden's Sierra.

Considering her moon motif, I'm not surprised.

Also short even bangs are pretty much Japan's top princess trope. See also: The Himecut.
