Yeah, Gamestop tends to be a crapshoot more often than not. I've had my share of preorders and preorder bonuses disappear without a trace. Sometimes you can go shop hopping in hopes of finding the missing pieces if you ask the associate to call up and ask around but I wouldn't count on that either.

That said, this time went without incident and now I have my own swank CE BD FF. Right now I've just unlocked the village growth mechanic. Also I had to change the voices over to Japanese since Tiz shares the same VA as SAO's Keito and the reminder of the hot garbage that is SAO s2 is a bit too much.

I'm still playing SRW Original Generation myself, at episode 35. I'm liking it quite a bit, but I do feel the game has slowed down considerably. Must be all the units and obsessive customization I'm doing. It could also be that I've played a few dozen hours of Skyrim, which is a ton of fun, though I do feel like I'm playing just a graphic mod of Oblivion. This game has hardly made any meaningful improvements.

The thing about SRW games is that you've hit the part where all the key players have been introduced and the game is throwing a larger number of enemies at you whilst said enemies progressively become more bulletspongey. By the endgame enemy grunts will be as tougher than battleships. That said, if you're finding OG1 to have too many units, then you're going to be in trouble because OG1 has one of the smallest rosters in the series (to be fair though, most games either make weapon upgrades into a single unified attribute or not at all, but only the OG games really make you upgrade weapons individually).

A link with the relevant information for those still interested.

You know, if they're going with hexes triangles, then does anyone else think that they may have to drop the flanking mechanic from FFT/etc. or do you think they'll end up reengineering it to compensate for six sides?

I don't know, it's kind of fun to discuss walking disasters in action.

I mean, don't get me wrong, for the most part I don't care about graphics, it's just this screams low budget all around.  It's also confusing.  You'd think Aksys would co-develop something that would appeal to the audience they normally target.

To be fair, I was being pedantic.

Also, MindZero is pretty much a bargain bin dungeon crawler with allusions to Persona so that kinda fits within this.

I just finished Sora no Kiseki (Trails in the Sky) SC. The final chapter was nothing short of stunning. It was easily the best climax I've ever experienced in an RPG. The final boss deserves special mention. As well as the final boss music. (Definitely listen to it! But don't search for the last song by name; you'll encounter major spoilers in the first few results. The videos I linked are all safe though.)

Same here. (I was hoping to have finished FC before you wrapped up SC. Drat.)

King of the Nerds S2: Making Nerds Look Bad Since 2012. I hate this show so much but I can't help but watch fools doom themselves by saying something along the lines of "Hey. This is along the lines of my expertise. I have the advantage.". I think that so far, in both seasons, without fail, everyone who's even hinted at having a home court advantage over their opponent has immediately lost whatever it was that they were talking about. And with that said, holy crap. I haven't seen a rout this bad since the Super Bowl. That's the power of a shitlord for you.

Agents of SHELDON: Whoever said that this show is more like a cop drama than a superhero comicbook was close but I think this is probably closer to a spy drama instead. That said, I've got to at least give credit where credit's due for
having a villain actually shoot a plot important main character, right after monologuing, in the stomach, twice just to be sure (albeit with the caveat of leaving said character in a room with a rather conveniently placed hyperberic [s]time[/s] chamber sitting in the corner; at least he used that fact to make his getaway) instead of just leaving them in an easily escapable trap or invoking impeccable timing from the rest of the team/the calvary.

Got the NA version:

Was this on the EU release too?  Yay, my education will pay off.

I feel like this image is trying to tell me something but I can't seem to grasp it. Quick! Get me somebody literate!

I know I shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but holy crap that's one fuck ugly cover.

I've seen one man Unity projects look better than this.

I'm just glad they're shoving this out the door ASAP so that we can all stop talking about this ASAP.

Quiz is dead, Mongoosey got the plague

I dunno if you have spycams in my house, but you're right.

I'm dying from the flu currently. I'll update this if I make it.

Meanwhile the rest of us will be hiding in quarantine until then. Hopefully we won't start killing each other in the meantime.

I come bearing a new trailer, a release date, and a price point.

Pre-orders are happening now for this. I pre-ordered a collector's edition, but damn did the S-E store make me wish I could've just gotten my copy with Amazon.

Yeah, Squeenix store pretty much makes it a 'wait for it' title for me. #inb4EUgripesaboutdigitalonly

Why did Fang have to be the one with Bahamut.

Because she's the game's stealth main protagonist, which makes a lot more sense when you consider that she was originally going to be male (and is also why her relationship with Vanille seems so sensible (and thus why Vanille is the closest XIII gets to the stereotypical Magical Healer Type)).

The decisive battle in question being the rest of the party stopping Eusis's rampant baninating, Ashton's rampant creepiness, and Klutz's rampant dooming of women he swears to protect.

I like the Destiny a lot as well, but the random encounters (and random encounters during puzzles) really bothered me but the rest was good.  I think it was that sort-of perfect PSX-era RPG that didn't take too many steps away from being a more "Classic RPG" but also felt like a fresh ground because it was capable of that much more (PSX felt sort of "magical" for RPGs in this regard).

Really? Even the awful dungeon design? Because I remember ToD having dungeons that never end (or if one does end, its so another can begin right on top of it).
3675  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mind 0 is not Persona...er...well...maybe not... on: February 02, 2014, 02:18:07 PM
And perhaps it's the business decision of trying to snag some money off the Persona trend, seeing as how the Persona games became a flagship series for Atlus.  Kinda saying, "Lookie here, we have one just like it."  The whole "it's just as good as the real McCoy" ploy.  

Persona. Accept no substitutes.
