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!?

Yeah-- that's what I meant to say. The monsters have more utility, but I'm a pretty strong opponent of monster systems in JRPGs. It just seemed like a cheap cop-out to not have to write as many characters, which are like, the best part of a Tales game for me.

I'd love to see what else they're doing to tweak the game. CURIOSITY

On the other hand, Dragon Quest V.

Sure it was only really about the main character, but unlike other JRPGs, it really was all about the main character and his lifelong quest.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Star Ocean game make it in next time. 2 seems popular but 4 is more recent and thus will be less likely to have people who've only played it 16 years ago or so.

Alright. Fine. You win Starmongoose. I'll join your silly chat. But don't expect any smiles, this ain't McDonald's. >:(

Fake Edit: Wait!? THAT WAS A SMILE!!! :doh:

The winner gets taken to McDonalds for a Happy Meal by me. Balls in your court, Aeolus.

Alright. I'll meet you at the one between Super Target and Bakers Supermarket, across the street from Walmart Express, and right next to Walgreens.

Have access to an Ocarina of Time 3DS with Master Quest already unlocked thanks to Dicey.  I've played regular OOT back in the day when it came out on the N64, but haven't touched it since.  Is it worth playing MQ over regular?

Either/or is probably fine. MQ does have a bit of freshness in regards to the dungeons but many of them aren't really that hard or THAT different from their original incarnations. I will say however that if you've memorized the vanilla version's dungeons then MQ is probably the better choice overall since between the graphical and UI changes and the different level design it'll sorta feel like you're playing a brand new game.

Meanwhile, I've beaten Liberation Maiden and started Crimson Shroud. LM is literally :qqsay::japan::qqsay: but the gameplay isn't too bad. Crimson Shroud feels like a spiritual successor to Vagrant Story so far with a bit of D&D thrown in for flavor mostly.

I've also started Nier and have made it to the Junkyard and got the 3x Titanium Alloys needed to continue. I expect :qq: to start up sooner or later.

Been cleaning up my SSBB file which I started back when the game was new in 08 since apparently my siblings got lives while I wasn't looking and are all but gone now and I expect a "Surprise!" announcement on regards to SSBIV's release date in the next couple of days. So I've finally broke down and started cheesing the unlock requirements for the last melee stage, all the stage requisite music tracks, unlocking all of the tracks (the game's got an awesome soundtrack), clock in over 100 hours of brawl time (thank god for GCN controllers), building custom stages that I should delete since they're all boring and not even fully utilizing all the available pieces (because you needed to build 15 of the fuckers to unlock the last stage builder set and it's bollocks), and clearing All-Star mode with EVERYBODY (fucking tedious as all hell). Now I just have to clear Boss Battles with everyone which goes by much faster (and I've already made far more headway into that endeavor than All-Star Mode), then surviving the 15-minute man brawl and having everyone do the 100-man brawl (fuck those, I'm just going to use a hammer), and somewhere along the way, pick up all the stickers.

The only roguelike elements they talk about are randomization and replayability.

Really? So then in other words they really are making Romancing SaGa 2 SRPG edition.
3655  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Massive Chalice Kickstarter on: May 30, 2013, 11:09:13 PM
Aside from the roguelike elements this sounds like something right up my alley.

Too bad, between all the upcoming games being released this summer, garage sales, and being semi-unemployed, I haven't got a spare dime to my name. Still worth keeping an eye on though.

I would say that the LE is more for people who missed out on preordering for the CE and giving them something to compensate at least than to bleed Tales of Fans dry (but then again, this is Namdai we're talking about so there's always the chance for scuzziness).
3657  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: super robot wars topic on: May 30, 2013, 08:33:01 PM
while not technically a srw game i thought this should go here. seems banpresto is on a ps3/vita kick of late


They just announced it and already the cast list is what the hell inducing. Higurashi? What the fuck!? Di Gi Charat and Super Sonico are pretty lame as well. Dream Hunter Rem is pretty much by far and away the best series on that list. That and the male lead means that unless this has armor break mechanics used in the Queen's Blade games I'm ready to give this a pass despite the Satoshi Urushihara designed character.

Also; number of confirmed Rie Kugimiya voiced character count thus far: 3 (With a bit more discretion, this game could've been renamed Super Riekugimiya Wars or SRW for short.)

Crystal Chronicles was an *amazing* idea with poor design, if I had to say anything about it.  Plus, the plots for the DS game were just weird and sad.  The interface with the GBA was just more trouble than it was worth.

I oddly did like Chrystal Bearers for whatever-the-fuck reason.  Maybe it was the opening theme the just set a good idea. I dunno.

The sad part was that it had potential if it didn't use that silly GBA-GCN connection gimmick since the game didn't really make good use of it. A Co-op ARPG in the vein of Secret of Mana would've been a godsend back in those days, especially with the more simplified mechanics and interface versus the "I spam my stack of numbers' cheezy option against the game's stack of numbers because every other way is too slow and tedious and I liek BEEG NUMBURS :).".
3659  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy Type-0 joins Square Enix's Ultimate Hits budget line in Japan on: May 30, 2013, 06:11:33 PM
That was quite the read :D
On a more serious note, what version do you actually prefer? I am curious to know after having read that incredibly amusing scenario.

So far the PSX version simply because that's the one I played through and the game is too linear and constrictive to warrant getting multiple versions. Although, the DS version was tempting due to the mechanical differences, but the DS version of FFIII kinda soured me on taking the plunge. The GBA version of FFVI was where I realized just how shallow and grindy these additions can be. And The After Years was way too expensive when it first came out and it sounded like bad fanfiction for me to consider sinking money on even afterwards. Also I still don't have a PSP to play my current PSP games on yet (although my luck may change now that Garage Sale season is in full swing) let alone getting any new PSP games to play.

The tl;dr is that I'm tired and burnt out on Squeenix's neverending parade of bullshit and them trying to milk my youth of every cent its worth, so I'm more or less sitting on the sidelines, commentating on bullshit, and poking fun at them because that's probably the most entertainment I'm getting from them these days.
3660  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: May 30, 2013, 05:56:10 PM
Boy, they sure want our money. That's pretty scuzzy there Namdai (but not unexpected).

Thankfully, I give zero fucks about the DLC (Awakening got me to buy theirs so it has to be at least that good if not better for me to sink $ on). I'll bet the difference in Music CDs will be all of one song. And besides, the art book sounds better than the character profile book and that's probably what counts the most.
