Kellam. Aka the guy who benefits the most directly from the pair up mechanic.

Class set wise he's bizarre as all get out with both the Thief and Priest class trees available to him in addition to his Knight tree. During the main game he seems like the best choice to just simply make into a General but promoting him into a Great Knight isn't a bad choice either since it'll get him weapon ranks for swords and axes, both of which will help him transition into any of the Thief based classes and War Priest. Moreover, Trickster and the entire Priest line allows him to wield staffs which can be a great source of Exp later on during the post game when most battles are netting non Paragon sporting units 8 exp a kill. Better still is that the Move +1 skill from Thief is great for him and General's lackluster natural move (of course you have to learn it first and Frederick gets the Wyvern Rider line instead with its Carrier being pretty much outright, the better skill; although anything Trickster gets pretty much outshines anything in the Wyvern Rider line anyways). He also gets Miracle from Priest and Renewal from War Priest which plays well with his General (hah) tankiness and the Thief's speed and skill focused class growths play well with his Knight like bases and base growths. And speaking of growths, he also has the best defense growths in the game and is tied with Nowi with the third best defense modifier of the first gen characters (losing only to Walhart and a Def heavy Avatar with a flaw of either magic, speed, luck, or resistance).

As for parentage, he's pretty much Severa's best father on account of offering her nothing that overlaps with what she already has. Not like she really needs anything to begin with but he offers several desirable skills in the Trickster and Great Knight classes. Moreover, his Priest based classes and Trickster offer Severa some badly needed magic heavy classes to help her magic growth along. And then she gets bonuses to her starting strength and defense for shits and giggles (because she wasn't tanky enough as it was with natural access to every form of life absorption in the game; if only she had access to Dread Fighter and Aggressor (and Resistance +10 for lulz) to make Male Morgan jealous). And speaking of Morgan, a Female Morgan birthed by a Kellam sired Nah has the highest defense possible of 61 as a General (not including Limit Break or any boosts). As for other parent options, Inigo would be okay with falling back on him and both Laurent and Kjelle wouldn't mind being sired by him if their better options are indisposed or pairing screwage occurred (because honestly, there are better ways for kids to get the Thief class tree than from Kellam and Great Knight can be accessed through the much better Cavalier line (although Generals in general (hah again) have their ridiculous looks with their shoulder guards either looking like a jetpack that belongs on a super robot or nearly reaching Langrisser levels of ridiculous (at least the rest of the ensemble is armored as well instead of crap like a short-sleeved or sleeveless LJ, a tanktop, and either 2/3rds of a pair of form fitting leather pants or Daisy Dukes) for males and females respectfully).

The tl;dr is that Kellam has potential to be one of the better 1st gen males in the game but first he needs to get out of his Knight line and into something that gets him more mobility and speed, which is, of course his biggest obstacle since he's more content with being an armored backpack than reclassing into a Thief.

I'd kill for cameo DLC.  HD Terra clothes.

Well, its A FF female lead's outfit. I guess Lightning needs a change of clothes for when she needs to heal too.

FE:Awakening. Made it through both Harvest Scramble and Lost Bloodlines 3. I now have Seliph (free Galeforce :woot:) and Chrom's sporting a new paradigm Paragon skill (which is great since he hit Paladin 15 during LB3 so I reclassed him into a Bow Knight). Meanwhile Florina has also finally hit 15 in her class of Dark Flier (more Galeforce :woot:) so now she's a Wyvern Lord working on her defense and strength for hit and run purposes. The extra levels accumulated between the two stages also have been bumping my team's stats up to or over numbers divisible by 10 which provides an extra point bonus in a stat upon pairing up. Probably going to have to hit up Golden Gaffe yet again to afford enough temporary stat boosters for the team for the next two chapters (the next bullion wont show up until a chest in chapter 20 and I may need three sets if I attempt Smash Brethren 1 between now and then; here and there).

Otherwise the crew is still the same as last time, Chrom and Est have nearly maxed out stats and are massive shit wreckers, Quan and Altena are slow but beefy mounted units, Florina can now perform hit and runs as well as continue being a ferry, Leif is still capable of jumping in when I need extra fire power or to eat a weakened kill, Athena is still there as well but is mostly a speed booster for one of the others, I'm getting more confident in Micaiah's nosfertanking abilities but I'm still not planing on fielding her yet, Alm is still training as a Tactician before he reclasses/promotes into a class that can fight, Raquesis and Moulder are still my healers, Mycen's slowed down to the point where he can do little more than chip or support attack (at least he still makes for a decent armored pack), and Mia and Amelia are still there to be a speed booster/armored pack respectfully.

Somebody tell me that this is just a bad case of semantics on Siliconera's part.

I mean, I guess its not a big deal given that most of these games sound like the kind with the yearly iterations anyways so its not all that different then buying a game from Gamestop then trading it in once you're finished with it for a discount on the next iteration of what's hot for the year.

^ Amazing. Why is there no modern day remake of Hamlet where everyone is in High School. Ophelia can be the Regina George of it.

Because it'd probably end with a school shooting.

Fake Edit: Oh goddammit! It would wouldn't it. >_<;

 Very close to wrapping up my FF6 run. I am not sure where to go next: I kinda wanna buy Rainbow Moon and Final Fantasy 5 is one of the Final Fantasy games I have not played for more than two hours. I am also on the fence about buying Ni No Kuni. Life is full of the tough decisions.

I'd say go with FFV. Even if it is the predecessor to FFT's and FFX-2 job systems, it got so much right on that particular attempt that its still worth playing just for that. Plus, its like the only FF game that really doesn't take itself seriously half the time which makes it a hell of a lot more palatable than most of the later FF games where its nothing but a constant JRPG soap opera.

A desperate longing stemming from abandonment issues? :v

Futurama: The beginning of the end.

The first two episodes of this final season were pretty good for the most part. The 2D space bit in the first episode was pretty great for the implications of trying to exist on a 2D plane include, also some of the sight gags and street racing riffs were pretty good as well. The second episode was also great for various reasons including the fact that Amy, Zoidberg, and Bender weren't able to save the day, the apes were almost completely on the level with the zoo's administration (leaving most of the peril with Amy and friends), and it was nice seeing Gunther again, also I can definitely see some Fry gifs coming out of that episode.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.
I would be totally fine with a Star Ocean reboot.
There is seriously very little room for any continuation or prequel right now.
A reboot is good in the sense that you get to keep the things that were good and scrap the ones that weren't (like the universe is an MMORPG).

Watch it turn out to be an iOS PtP CCG PoS like everything else that Squeenix is doing right now (that isn't FFXVersus, KH3, FFXIII-3, FFXIVmk2, or Drakengard 3).
3865  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: SQUARE ENIX Presents, Live Broadcast E3 Showcase on: June 20, 2013, 10:21:41 AM

Calling it now, reboot with the main cast from 1 as a result of someone time travelling.

Side note: I mentally correlate Star Ocean games with Star Trek series/movies. Last Star Ocean game was the Enterprise game, so the next one has to be the reboot one.

Doesn't explain Star Ocean 3.

But admittedly the Matrix was still popular at the time (before the rest of the trilogy kinda ruined it).

^ What is that and why haven't I heard of it?

From the newly announced Metal Max 4, a long running series of RPGs doing open world games before they were cool, featuring battles in tanks or with dogs with rocket launchers strapped to their backs against stuff like dinosaur battleships, giant fucking dudes with cannons grafted to their chests, mutant sunflowers, and so on.

The reason why you haven't heard of it is because Metal Saga was the only game from the series to make it outside of Japan and it bombed spectacularly because it landed during the heyday of the PS2's RPG rush (turning into yet another Atlus JRPG) and it moved away from some (but not all) of the kookiness that pervaded the Metal Max series.

Since im playing ff6 and last image was the Simpsons...



Haha...oh Cyan.

Why would Cyan be offering brownies to Terra?


Edit:

Goddammit. There are days when I wish some games like Metal Saga didn't bomb out here and this is definitely one of them.

An update on the not-Persona game Mind<=>0.
3869  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: June 19, 2013, 02:36:16 PM
Yeah, I'll recommend the Original Gundam in movie form too. The original series isn't bad but good luck tracking it down.

That said, I'd also recommend Zeta Gundam, though not in movie format as a lot more that happens in that show pushes the plot along and is generally less episodic than OYW.

Actually most UC Gundam shows tend to be okay at least (well aside from the latter half of ZZ Gundam, pretty much any time a female shows up in Victory Gundam, F91 Gundam which should've been a show instead of a movie, and 0083 Stardust Memories because the leads kinda suck). Meanwhile the only AU Gundam series that don't suck are G Gundam and Turn A Gundam (poor Turn X had serious potential but got canned before it could get to the payout, Double O Gundam had a decent start followed by a shitty second season and a horrid movie, and somewhere in there Gundam Wing has at least some redeeming value, though don't ask me what that is aside from the fact that Noin is seriously probably one of the best female pilots in the entire franchise).


As for Eureka 7 (or Errecta Schlebein because if we're going to mispronounce names and words, we might as well go whole hog on the deal), it's a show that needs to be watched twice. Once to go through it blind and get utterly confused by all the terminology getting thrown around and brandied about, and again after you are aware of the big plot twist revealed near the end of the show. Basically, the majority of the show is telling you everything you need to know about what's going on and what important thing is happening next aside from the context in which any of it makes any goddamn sense. Your first watch is basically going to be about watching Renton's character development from snot nosed kid who accidentally fell into a Gundam Nirvash to level headed young adult with aspirations towards the future. Your second watch (provided you made it to the end of your first go or you got spoilered on the plot twist) is going to constitute on seeing just how much everything ties into the overall plot and the imminent crisis.

But yeah, even then the show is kinda slow until you hit the part where Renton runs away from the Gecko State, after which the show stops dicking around and starts speeling the beans.

To be fair though, Bing has always been a biased shill.

At least I can still Bing Google. :v




Row, row, row your....um...tractor?

In what universe is that a tractor?
