Hopefully they'll have a two player mode so that I can run a Sheik/Impa tag team.

Although, Zelda/Hilda tag team would also be acceptable.

Alright. You guys talked me into it. I've signed up, so drop me a line when you feel up to playing a game.

Awesome! When are you normally on? I would definitely like to play together. Add me as a friend. My name is Daggerstrike on there too.

Seeing as I just signed up, I don't have a specific time frame of being on yet. That said, I'm going by on the site.

Pardon the double post but Rosalina confirmed. Too bad the trailer seems to be a tease in regards to Rainbow Road being a stage.

Ninja Edit for links.

Double Edit: 3DS is getting a Rainbow Road stage. Neat.

Yes, they are making a Zelda themed Dynasty Warriors clone.

I would've thought the FE series would've made for a better Musou game given the enormous casts each game typically has.

Also I'm putting this here since I'm pretty sure the Something-something Warriors games are not RPGs.

Or maybe we could grow up and stop comparing sexual or maternal apparatus in order to put down others for the sake of cheap and uninspired humor.

I agree. Lets stop with that, and compare culinary aptitude in order to put down others for the sake of cheap and uninspired humor instead.

That's pretty good to know.

I've heard Sharla is horrible later on, but if you say healing gets a bit easier, then that helps a lot too.

And yeah, running speed....  I wish they did something other than take up a gem slot... y'know...running shoes, or Juju's funky dirt bike (which reminds me, Juju is an awful name).

I would say that Sharla's less horrible and more not one of the following: an all rounder that's got all sixteen arts available during battle (though a fully charged talent gauge is needed for half of them), a brick shithouse, a guy that hits like a brick shithouse, a blurry dodge tank with an impressive skill set, a wad of HP capable of AoE heals and filling the chain attack gauge without the need for crits, capable of melting enemy HP bars with DoT (damage over time) attacks, a walking Wave Motion Gun, a buff bot, or a walking Buzzsaw of Doom capable of instantly refilling the chain attack gauge due to vomiting crits all over the place.

And fortunately, there are skills that also improve your running speed. Unfortunately, they only increase your movement speed by 9% total (and half of that wont show up till a long ways into the game). Of course, if you stack the gems' boost and the skills' boost, your total speed will increase by 34%.

I hope we get an old guy, or really shake things up with a woman older than 30 joining the party (which otherwise seems like taboo to involve). 

It's hard enough to get males over 30 in these games (and those that do are always considered to be old geezers; middle-age in a JRPG runs from 20 to 26) let alone females. And again, Tales of Game. It took them nearly a decade just to have a game not star a plucky if somewhat daft sword fighting kid from down town The Sticks (I refer to Legendia where the kid in question fights with his feests! instead). After that, the only exceptions were Vesperia (due to the main character not being a kid) and Xillia (where there were two main characters! And the male one fights with his feests!! HOLY SHEET!!!).

Then again, they could easily have a female over 30 joining the party. Just look at Fire Emblem: Awakening's Nowi. She's not only over 30, she's over a thousand (and looks and acts like she's 12, and you can have somebody both marry and have a child with her, including your own in-game expy no less). :v

Played a lot of Xenoblade today!

I have no idea what I'm doing.

How far are you?

I'm working my way to the back of Bionis' leg.

I love Dickson for looking like a 70s pornstar rockstar.  I like sort of "practical" or real-ish designs like that coming out of a JRPG.


I'm getting the hang of things, but I'm too scared to get rid of Sharla since she's the only one really capable of healing a decent sum (even if it shitty intervals).  Also a surprising thing from "Good Guy Gamefaqs" for code-naming the "spoiler character" as simply "Seven".  Way to go guys!  I haven't lost faith in you!

Aside from the fact that you can't switch out Sharla yet, she's also probably the worst character in the game mechanically speaking since she's poor at chain attacking (her talent art is unusable during a chain attack which costs you a combo wild card at the very least) and her damage output sucks. Yeah, she'll heal you for a shit-tonne for those long, drawn out fights but once you get everyone to link to the skills that allows you to heal during chain attacks as well as the skills that boost your chain attack gauge, you'll find that other team configurations can survive just as long as configurations that include her but without the caveat of grinding chain attacks to a halt or drawing out fights.

And with that said, every team combination in this game is perfectly usable throughout the game (certain UMs, early game Mechon fights, and 'that one fight' not withstanding), so if you prefer Sharla's slow jiggly butt over the other options, then go right ahead.

Also also, I suggest equipping Quick Gems onto your party leader for pretty much all times. The extra *1.25 to your running speed will really add up in this game.

Princess knight? Maybe that's her masculine look and she's failing miserably?

The sane thing would be her having half a dozen older siblings, making her more expendable than the avarage prince(ss), giving her the freedom to do heroic shit. ... But I guess she's once again an only child with no interest in the throne, or something.

Now while the former would make the most sense, its far more likely to either be the latter or the case where she did have an older brother who disappeared on an expedition and to solve the mystery of his disappearance she must confront the evil empire's masked Black Knight who's fighting style is suspiciously identical to that of her missing brother's but she won't notice this until the end (or at least won't reveal that she noticed it until the end).

Basically, what I'm trying to say is that it isn't a Tales Of plot point unless its a done to death cliché.

Some character details. Pretty much confirms that the male is the game's main character. Also, how does a Princess Knight even work? Is she her own knight in shining armor, or is she the princess of one country and the knight of a princess of a second country?

And here I thought you were being facetious.
3733  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: December 16, 2013, 04:58:52 AM
Looking at that list, I'd say its going to be Space Dandy (although I have a feeling that its going to wind up like Kill la Kill in that a lot of people aren't going to be able to look past the raunchy fanservice) and Silver Spoon R2, with Nobunagun (only one of two battle series featuring historical figures), Robot Girls Z (could wind up as a second Girls und Panzer or as Super Robot K-on), and either Sekai Sefuku (could be the first show in a while to feature a villainous organization as inept and ridiculous as ACROSS) or Wizard Barristers (Magical Girls: Ace Attorney) having the potential to be good despite their descriptions (also possibly Sailor Moon if it ever comes out).

That said, checked out Summer Wars yesterday. It was a cute movie, with a feel good message, and a conflict that could definitely be a real thing (although not nearly as Hollywood logic about it). Next Week: FMA: Conquerer of Shambal-no, fuck that shit. Next week I catch up on some more Manga.

Some localization information. I suppose this means I mustn't let Ringabel run away from any battles. :v
3735  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Classic Christmas Episodes on: December 16, 2013, 12:54:28 AM
inb4 How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Not to be confused with that lame live action The Grinch movie.

And a shame on all of you for not mentioning the classic Garfield Christmas Special.

Plus how can I post in a thread about Christmas specials and not mention the Star Wars Christmas Special?
