The most recent PSX game was released over a decade ago. People were calling the SuperNES retro long before it hit that point (although that's more due to the fact that the SuperNES still had games coming out for it until the 00's). Suck it up you old geezer.

Playing more Tactics Ogre Knight of Lodis.  Currently iI'm at a map called Ostorea Castle, which has two consecutive encounters that can't share units. Basically, you ought to have 16 characters around level 20 to challenge the first two stages (eight for each one). I have 13 characters TOTAL, and zero of them are at level 20. Only nine of them are above level 12, with most of those nine in the level 17-19 range. I have some character creation and level grinding to do. Gonna get on that.

If I remember correctly, after a point, I just said fuck it and went full in on the uniques instead of trying to keep generics around (aside from maybe a caster or two).

Hit a similar problem in LUCT where I just got tired of hitting up training after every fight when to close the ensuing level gap since there isn't enough experience during story fights to level even 5 people up once and yet you're expected to bring in 10 people at the recommended level (at least this does become less of a thing as time goes on but PSX issues then become the major problem yet again).

Anyways, chapter 8 of PXZ and I've gotten Ryu/Ken back along with probably one of the few if only characters in the game whom I have no fucking clue about going into this. Still more running around, getting more recruits, and getting into fights at literally every turn.

Other badass moments.

The final mission within Fort Nova in SaGa Frontier 2 on Gustav's route.

Getting the Hyper Beam in Super Metroid.

Getting the Master Sword in a Link to the Past.

Watching Sabin suplex that motherfuckin' train in FFVI.

The final showdown against Baby Bowser in Yoshi's Island.

Link's finishing blow to Ganondorf in Wind Waker.

Winning that one battle between Pahn and Teo McDohl in Suikoden 1.

Something about this holiday makes me feel funny... I can't explain it... but it has never felt like a legitimate holiday to me really. It has always somehow left me some generic or cheesy impression of some stupid american excuse to drink beer and watch fireworks, long before it becomes an iconic day to celebrate patriotism in any sense.

 All the same though, tis a fine opportunity to wish you all a lovely day :)

Its pretty much this, but it also is the last major event before the dead of summer starts and you start hitting the droughts and 100 degree temperatures (thanks global warming), and you shut yourselves indoors, crank on the AC, and pray to god that you don't have to spend more than an hour outside on any given day for the next three months (all while hoping rain comes along to help lessen your energy and water bills).

... Also how long till MS Office gets ported to the XBox.

Shit, I...

Microsoft isn't positioning the XBox as a game console or a PC but as a device that hooks up to your TV and gets to be a central fixture of your /home/. The tablet is portable, but it's not part of your home because it's not bound to it. The living room is, though. The TV is. The XBone is.

What they're doing actually makes SENSE. PCs aren't cool anymore but something that augments your TV is (even if it ultimately... is the same thing).

It's a (somewhat limited) PC that they're marketing as something better than a PC by marketing it as something DIFFERENT than a PC.

... This is the stupidest fucking thing and it could seriously work completely how they're intending.

At least until Hulu and other online content providers start charging you on top of what you'd normally pay because of their software that detects whether you're trying to view them from something other than a PC like they did with Google TV (which is why nobody has Google TV).

Then again, with the way cable companies have been cutting services and ratcheting up prices all over the place these days, it feels like we're in an arms race to see which shit lord will be king of shit mountain.

^Fans are still waiting for Vesperia? Like, for real?

Tales of fans man. They're almost as crazy as FF fans.

Too bad the image quality of the gif isn't high enough for me to get a make on the guy in the line dance's face because he looks kinda familiar (actually he's probably not the guy I'm thinking of since he isn't wearing glasses).

But where's the WiiU tablet? Also can't tell what's the on the popular anime sheet (though I wouldn't be surprised if its Naruto or Bleach).

PXZ: Finished chapter 7. Game's getting a bit less ridiculous about the amount of breakable kibble everywhere (plus I'm starting to get enough people to deal with it all). Anyways, I've since recruited the Reiji/Xiaomu (the NxC originals), Soma/Alisa (God Eater clowns), Gemini/Erica (various Sakura Taisen female leads), Zephyr/Leanne (the other John Woo/Gun Fu Resonance of Fate characters), and Kite/Blackrose (from dotHack for the uninitiated) with Vashyron (the best character) and Lindow (another GE clown) for support.

Oh my!

But, er, what timezone's 4th/6th?

That is, will those of us in North America be getting information tomorrow?


Now whether the news is about the latest overpriced DLC sold piecemeal or not is the question.

Oh god. You just reminded me of that awesome Neogif thread about the video game boxarts of the future. Now I miss that thread. :(

Collect all seven to unlock an extra bonus mission where you protect a small Japanese village from bandits. :p

Goddammit PXZ. Did you really have to introduce breakable kibble into environments and semi randomly hide items in them? I'm spending more time satisfying my OCD curiosity than I am on the actual fights themselves. Never the less, thank you for making kibble removal a free action instead of a bust object/end turn deal like other SRPGs would do (then again, such games don't scatter such kibble all over the fucking stage and be semi-unpredictable about whether loot is present or not either).

Anyways, beat chapter 3. I now have the game's originals, Chun Li/Morgan, Akira/Pai Chan, and Frank West/Lei-Lei with Bahn and Tron Bonne as available supports.

For those who've been sitting on their hands, now's the time to get in on Soul Hackers.

EDGE should have put in the front "Where is your God now Xbots!?" instead. :P

The best part though is the PS4 + Xbone games special, followed immediately by the rest of the cover basically telling you to disregard the Xbone.
3825  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: super robot wars topic on: July 02, 2013, 11:55:33 AM

Meanwhile, on the SRW front. OE continues to look excellent.

Its also nice to see OYW Gundam and crew again.
