While I don't have a 3DS I had the intention of getting the limited edition of SMT IV and save it for when I have a 3DS, but with The Last of Us coming a month before it I doubt I'll have enough to money to grab one for me now...


Yeah. This is getting to be a crazy expensive year in general.

The lack of OG Wii VC is also disappointing, but not by much.

Honestly, having this will probably mean that we may yet finally see Earthbound carts go down in pr-bahahahaha. Sorry, couldn't finish that thought. The retro gaming market is still going to be screwed 5 ways from Sunday regardless of digital availability. At least its nice to finally have a way to legally play through the game to finally see what all fuss is about.

Just the fact that this is a new(-ish) 2D overhead Zelda (that isn't stylus driven, not like I had a problem with that in particular but the DS games were really fucking spartan in terms of content) is excellent news in of its own right. The fact that its a direct sequel to LttP (and most likely Ancient Stone Tablets as well) is just icing on the cake. Here's hoping that the new game is just as loaded with secrets and tricks to pull as the original version was (and also to pull a New Mystery and include a remade AST as well).

So I watched Defiance last night, it was a very enjoyable sci-fi show. I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes from here. Interestingly enough, it seems to me like it is the opposite half of a sci-fi/western than Firefly. I mean Firefly focused on a group of "outlaws" travelling from planet to planet in a universe consisting solely of humans, Defiance focuses on a sheriff on Earth that now has a population of aliens.....I don't know, the comparison makes more sense in my head than I think my explanation does.

Saw it and thought that the sci-fi parts were kinda superficial compared to the western elements. Doesn't help that the concept of defending a small frontier town from a hoard of invaders/outlaws has been done so much better before.
3815  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Zelda LttP 2 for 3DS on: April 17, 2013, 10:44:45 AM
Spotted this on the latest Nintendo Direct.

Apparently the rumors of this actually being a thing are true but they didn't exactly mention that it would be a mostly new game instead of a straight remake.

Also the visuals are kinda whoa. (Thank god there's no yapping or yelping this time around.)

They weren't allowed to talk about Versus because there was nothing to talk about (except for the licensed fashion brand threads everyone's now sporting). :V

cant believe that garbage is getting dlc and not ogs2

OGs 2 is probably not built for it.

Adding this for completionist sake.

Calling it now, the Bargain Bin Gundam Pilot Original's mid season game upgrade is going to be getting the Least Uninteresting Original's mech after he disappointingly kicks the bucket. A far more interesting development would've involve the Old Man Original taking over the leading Original role while the BBGPO goes on to become Lockon's second identical twin brother.

But that would require an SRW game that doesn't suck.

Finally getting around to posting a UX trip report to state that I fucking called it. Old guy goes away, for blue neon lights gundam to get handed down the boring protagonist with its upgrade being the OG chick's bird mech backpack. The bola attack is the only thing worth a damn about the whole mess and even that feels a bit silly/cheap.

The rest of UX is mostly a wash given the excessive use of cutins, the occasionally butchered theme song, the lackluster UI, the boring stage design, and the even more boring DLC (have a stage where you play as nothing but female pilots which means maybe Dancouga Nova, Klan-Klan, a bunch of support lackeys, and the 00 Baseship or a stage where you play the badguys). That said the Linebarrel guys did alright, Heroman got almost entirely screwed over (although I will give them props for this which is probably the best thing out of the game), they couldn't get Vocaloid Miku to play Hatsumi Miku, Demonsbane managed to get its "Crisis of Infinite Demonsbane" attack (unless it didn't (I am unfortunately not familiar enough to know for sure) in which case, holy crap, Branpresto, quick, make an SRW including this alongside, Ideon, Great Zeromyer, the ending of Gurran Lagann, the Getter Emperor, and whatever other giant robot series that culminate with powerlevels in the "Screw the universe! I've got a giant motherfucking robot!!!" area), and everybody else did worse here than normal (still need to check out how SD Sengoku Gundam did).

And now you guys know why I didn't just make a new thread for SRW UX.

This board is dead?  I'd say it's pretty much perfect...

I'd say so as well. We make new topics when new topics are needed, sometimes additional topics are made for discussion sake but not for the sake of making additional topics.

That said, I didn't mind the occasional "comparing the occasional game" threads since they were mostly about individual games and usually they weren't related enough to have had such a comparison and it does generate some critical discussion and thinking, but right now its getting a bit much.

I'll bite and admit to enjoying Nanoha occasionally (despite the cast bloat, the Goddammit Japan factor, and the occasional creepy pedophilia (never have I been gladder to see a fucking tournament arc in my life than in ViviD and I generally hate fucking tournament arcs since they typically go nowhere slowly and rely on stupid powerlevel bullshit dickwaving that gets invalidated as soon as the arc is over)).

I'm also enjoying Sci-fi Harry despite the show having absolutely no redeeming value whatsoever (aside from counting how many times per episode the cast mangle the characters names without saying anything else or laughing at the occasional incompatibility between eastern animation techniques, western-esque character designs, and the complete lack of a budget).

I also occasionally check out the occasional Giant Robot anime and Korean Manwha.

Wahoh. Mayhap thou doth Persona too much?

You realize I just said as much, right? Or were you simply providing supporting evidence to my comment?

A whole channel of stuff.  Interesting, but sometimes hard to listen to.  This guy takes songs in a major key and changes them to minor, and vice versa:


Edit: the Super Mario Bros theme song in a minor key:

And on the topic of youtube channels involving interesting ways to use oldskool videogame music/technology....


8-bit Giant Robot anime themes.

DINNER DINNER DINNER (Infinite Undiscovery)

Funny you mention that, I'm right before that scene (playing it the other day). Not going to lie, Infinite Undiscovery is one of my favorite games. After two years of inactive playing, I picked it up last week and went through it...and for some reason doing a heck of a lot better now than I did back then. I nailed the dragon run when your carrying Aya to a village in one shot, which I used to have so much trouble with that before.

Went through a bit more of Nier, and darn is this a beautiful game too look and listen to.

I liked Infinite Undiscovery quite a bit too (and even reviewed it for the site), but I'm a pretty big fan of tri-Ace. SO4 was not the greatest, though. I liked IU alot more.

I thought the only good thing about IU was that under certain conditions you could get your own party members to flip out and attack you?

Anyways, I've completed the first DLC Challenge map in Awakening. If there was ever a reason to invest in getting as many people to acquire Galeforce as you can, this is it. The stage is literally built around aggressively gibing 1HP dudes so that they can't saunter up to you and smack you with a nearly maxed out Vengeance hit for a fuck ton of unmitigated damage (even having a solid healer throw out a Fortify heal isn't enough to compensate for a Vengeance proc and Sol/Nosferatu doesn't help that much when there's nothing left to drain). Galeforce also helps in bumrushing the stage's boss Algol for the Est card although you do need to watch out for the Risen chief when gunning for the boss since the fucker is nasty (forged Brave Lance with maxed/nearly maxed stats plus Lancefaire, Vengeance, Counter, Luna, and Axebreaker).

I think I'm getting close to starting a Lunatic Classic run for shits and giggles now that most of the DLC is out (I'm not going to use the DLC as a crutch so much as I'm going to focus on a no grinding playthough, allowing the occasional DLC as a supplement (and I wont even touch the grinding ones), or I could even make a DLC character only run since I won't have support bonuses to aid me).
