After my hatred for 4 Heroes of Light, it's going to take some convincing for me to pick this up.

For starters, there better not be any MULTIPLAYER ONLY gear. (Yes, that is where my hatred for 4 Heroes comes from. I have strange pet peeves)

FUN NOTE: Before I caught my typo, that first line read "4 Herpes of Light"

To be fair though, at least the game was kind enough to provide a work around (even if it sucked compared to jumping through the hoops) to getting the multiplayer loot, which was a far cry better than what DQIX did for it's multiplayer.

Of course, 4HoL went and hid a class in said multiplayer shop thingie which was ballz.

You mean an RSS feed? We have those already.



-you can create an army of yous or a harem of your favorite person

Horrible ethical issues be damned?

Ha! Joke's on you. I'd make a harem of anime waifus and those are already personality-less, wish-fulling, mono-trait, doormats who are all secretly dirty whores and sluts inside (they just need you to show them).

Creepiness aside, an addendum to my previous post on immorality is that if you're going to make people immortal, for the love of god, make sure you either include eternal youth or the ability to pick and choose your appearance because like hell would anyone want to be immortal and constantly aging (imagine being stuck in one of those hospital beds tied down by life support forever).

Cool, there's a robot too in the party apparently.

It's been a long time since I've been hyped about a game to this degree =)

That's kinda what I was getting at actuallly.  Ciel seems more affiliated with the robot than the MC.  SO I wonder if it'll be more canon pairings than harem.

I'm kinda psyched too.... I don't know why.

I would be willing to put money down that there will be heroine choice of some kind for the ending at this point. If the battle system had two singers like in Ar Tonelico 2, then I might be willing to believe that they were going to go for a canon pairing route, but since my understanding is that the singer is switched between the two (or three since I would also be willing to put money down that there will be a third singer.....because successor to Ar Tonelico) I feel very confident that they are going to go for the "harem" solution.

I think the bigger question is whether this makes Iona a cheating hussy for palling around with two different videogame protagonists.

I would like to think I would create something for the greater good but if I was able to do one thing it would probably be a way to make myself immortal and also stop aging. I can tell right now that it would be terrible.

One way has me being the only human capable of it meaning I have to watch my loved ones all die before me and avoid being "examined" to see if others can duplicate it. Avoiding all that, I would eventually become the equivalent of a Homo Habilis in the modern world due to evolution. If everyone becomes immortal, overpopulation leads to shortage of supplies and space which leads to war and death.

Fortunately, dealing with immortality isn't as big of a deal as everyone makes it out to be. If you're sick of living and you've got DBZ's Cell's level of regeneration, just make like the T-1000 in Terminator 2 and find a vat of molten steel to chuck yourself into and you should be fine (and dead, mostly dead). Alternatively, freeze yourself. And if you thaw out, then its time to find another habitable planet.

And remember, if life gives you immortal lemons, then you'll have infinite lemonade.

I'm still hoping they'll reboot SO =(

Don't worry. Just go play Phantasy Star Nov-wait, dammit. SEGA!!!

There's a fan translation of Madan no Ou to Vanadis, Mickeymac.  Probably not supposed to link to that sort of thing here but if you just google the title I'm sure you can find it.  In fact I think it's the first hit...

Hah, it's even the site that guy uses all the time. Maybe he's already heard of it? Anyways, thanks. And thanks for giving us the heads up on the anime version, I don't recall hearing about it from my usual sources.

EDIT: Wow, he apparently posted about it just yesterday. XD He loves it, even the fanservice scenes. In fact, he said they're some of his favorite fanservice scenes, referencing the bath scenes specifically. :P Just thought I'd mention that. Guess its got two solid recommendations now, so now I'm really looking forward to it.

Wait. This is worth something? WTF!?!

Not sure I understand what you're asking...

I was kinda referring to both his post and yours with the my post. Probably should have thrown in a quote with your name in the author tag and something indicating words to help clarify that.

Basically, from your description and the LoGH namedrop I imagined something closer to Twelve Kingdoms than what I got from seeing it go by before (which was a cover adorned by a moeblob and a short blurb as to why readers should keep an eye on this) which lead me to believe it would be something along the lines of Tears to Tiara or The Sacred Blacksmith (or at worst, Time and Eternity).


Anyways, that said, there are two things you should know about Kill la Kill. One is that it is awesome, and two is that it somehow manages to walk the line between faithfully following the tropes and hallmarks of the genres its in and being ridiculous.

Meanwhile, up to episode 10 of Majestic Prince and the plot remains bland and generic and some of the characters' eccentricities are kinda grating (especially from the two straight men pilots) but the rest of the silliness really helps break up the monotony and the fights aren't too bad either. It also helps that I'm watching two episodes at a time since it seems the show loves throwing cliffhangers at the end of odd numbered episodes.

Also since Hulu finally got around to adding it last week, I've finally gotten around to checking out Revolutionary Girl Utena (I had been meaning to for a while now). Only up to the first episode so far (since my plate currently has Kill la Kill, Majestic Prince, Slayers Next, Sword Art Online (season 2 :v), Soul Eater, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars (because I keep seeing it go by and why not, I kept seeing it go by and it's not the worst thing on Adult Swim)), so no spoilers dammit!

And speaking of, got to the end of SAO season 1. Decent show all in all. I will admit, I did lol at calling the final reveal ahead of time (take that Perfect Blue and your perfectly timed reveal).

So this bizarre phony commercial seems to be teasing some sort of Street Fighter PS4 announcement.  Couple little things I noticed: the PS1994 (when the original Playstation came out) on the license plate and the phone number is the date the original Street Fighter was released.

Oh, there's a website too.

Even the source code is old. Tons of deprecated tags.

Edit: oh wait, I know: Street Fighter x Crazy Taxi

A Street Fighter IV x Toyota marketing tie in ("The latest in engineering and design is getting the crap kicked out of it by random thugs fighting in the street!")?

Star should update the OP with stats and stuff

Only as long as Starmongoose gives me a mulligan on SO3. The only reason why I participated in that quiz was to push past it and not let that game kill yet again (and by kill, I mean it pretty much doomed the series to prequels and retcons).
3715  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show! on: November 08, 2013, 06:59:12 PM
can I just come on in to chat?


Sure. I did that back in the Persona 4 quiz and there's usually chatting going on before, after, and even during the quiz (although don't chime in answers during the quiz until after the time limit for the question in question has expired).

Super Mario 3D World Gameplay Videos & Screens -- All Games Beta

Fire Peach = Best Peach

For reference: The only other time Peach has ever officially donned Fire Powa' was in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. I even believe the color scheme was similar to the one used here.

I kinda hope not.  I ddn't really like the idea of alts in Smash Bros Mellee, I thought it cheapened the game a bit (it's cool on that one hand where you like a character's style but wish they played just a wee-bit differently, but I don't know if it's enough or just a quick way to make a bigger roster).

The impression I got from it was that the alts are not separate characters but straight up alts like how Daisy was one for Peach (except in this case they look to be making different character models but maintaining the same fighting mechanics and roster slot; or in short, I would guess that the Male Wii Fit Trainer will fight exactly like Female Wii Fit Trainer despite any visual differences).


Edit: Mario Galaxy based stage confirmed. I wonder how it'll work?

Suikoden's gameplay/battle systems leave something to be desired, pretty basic stuff (I remember just auto-battling all through Suikoden 5 because there was no need for any strategy at all, way too easy). Building your castle/army though and watching it develop from nothing to something huge is where the fun is at.


As for what I'm playing, Disgaea PSP. I think I'm at the final battle... the boss is like LV 90 and all my peeps are under LV65... guess I should grind? I feel like I'm not playing this game how it should be played though (finding ways to level up fast, and I haven't even touched transmigration). I'm gonna mess around more with the Item World, I didn't do much of that throughout the game. Whatevs.

I don't even know what transmigration is, but Item worlds are fairly important. It's helpful for grinding, they improve your weapons, and they're pretty fun on their own.

Transmigration takes one of your generic team members and lets them start all over again. They get to keep their stats, but the rest you get to pick again fresh from the generic character generator (what this actually means is that this is how you reclass your generics into better versions of their previous class, or into an entirely different class if one so desires, but either way, they're going back to level 1).

I'm sorry, but the Lion Beard should've been a mane.

I cancelled my order. The recent purchase of a Wii U and a Vita plus a mountain of games means.... I'll take my time and put the money towards some apartment furniture or something

Yeah, this season is looking to be absolutely flooded with software, and now that the Vita's about to get Ys Celetica, I think I'm going to go for that instead.
