As someone who watched Senki Zesshou Symphogear season 1 and really liked it given that it was a completely new IP with a horrendously low budget... I have to say never EVER watch season 2.

I watched it because I suffer from 'well I watched season 1 so I might as well watch the sequel-ism' and there is 0 reason to watch season 2.

It is shit... wait no, that's an insult to shit.
It's like they forgot everything that made season 1 entertaining and just smeared a giant F-U to the audience.

The story goes full retard Gundam 00 season 1 style with even more cheese than a double double double cheese burger
In one episode something happens that could have been great and even push the limit of anime storytelling as we know it... but then they retcon the shit out of it not even 5 minute in the next episode.

Senki Zesshou Symphogear season 2 is bad bad bad bad.
Don't don't don't don't watch it

Wait. I thought the first season was bad but salvageable due to not taking itself serious enough to go full on trainwreck, and the second season decided to take the tongue-in-cheek and run with it?

I think Popolocrois could have been on there in place of something that's a handheld version of an existing game.

Oh no it couldn't.  At least four staffers have played it, and only one liked it.

Well that, and the fact that it is a port of a PSX game.

DwtS: The clusterfuckathon continues. Apparently last week's elimination was bullshit so nobody got axed yesterday.

Castle: Back to the Time Cop 2: Judgement Who. So many time travel jokes.... Great episode all around.

Edits of SHIELD: Well that answers the question of when are they going to go back and revisit a plot thread. Now if they can only revisit an interesting plot thread, this show might just be in business.

That is not a bad picture at all. I wish I could draw half as well as that.

Watched one episode of Balck Jack earlier...any thoughts? I'm kinda on the fence.

Go for it. It's a classic series (unless you're talking about a different Black Jack; or are you referring to the series Balck Jack, in which case I'm not familiar with it).

Anyways, finally finished SciFi Harry and what an ending (as in a WTF ending). It's us! We're the Accusers!!! Also the main character (what's his name again, man if only they had mentioned it just a few dozen more times, maybe have a couple more scenes of people zoomed in on their faces to minimize the amount of animation needed standing around and saying his name and nothing else, or just have people drop his name in every goddamn sentence (the running gag, if you haven't gotten it yet, is that there is a lot of air time in the show that's eaten up by nothing more than talking heads spouting each other's names at each other, almost like Inuyasha, but without the budget)), and his apparent girlfriend (hey, it's not the first girl at least) apparently managed to perform a fusionha with each other to form some weird amalgamation chimera. Wow what a lot of words for an anime that makes several Hanna Barbera cartoons look decent by comparison.

At least its not as bad as the other series I recently finished, IGPX (yeah, I watched more of this than I should, what can I say, it was between SAO and Clone Wars). Holy shit, what an incredibly bland ending to an incredibly bland show. Pretty much every gimmick used by the final boss was either countered with almost no effort or just straight up got ditched before anything actually came of it (the final boss's final form was such a joke that it fell into the latter), and of course team :moreevil: turns out to be super huge fans all along despite the vast amounts of bullshit they pulled throughout the second half of the show. Looking at the credits, apparently there was quite a bit of talent put behind the series that ended up getting completely wasted on such an awfully bland show (which is goddamn tragic when you consider all the other original series made for Toonami that got canned for all the wrong reasons). It's like the Toki Towa of anime. I said it before and I'll say it again, Optimus Prime wasn't enough to salvage the show despite his best efforts (at least the two episodes where he got to drive in the race were the best episodes of the show I saw and I highly doubt there was anything in the episodes that I didn't that could even come close).

Dylan and Rufus are the only main character that are actually better than the einherjar and even then, it takes a while before they become good (Dylan's Full Swing and Rufus' Killing Thorn)
The saddest thing in the whole game is how badly Lenneth Creator sucks. She is so effing bad...
It's funny that in the game 'Valkyrie Profile', a party of 4 Valkyrie is really pathetic (Hrist is descent... but everything else... urk)

That and the fact that einherjar don't make for the ext like Snagglepuss the major characters do. I'm at chapter 5 and all I have left are Alicia, Rufus, and that one einherjar you can only recruit during chapter 4 or above. If you didn't know it was coming (like I did) then have fun with a two man party for a chapter.

But yeah, Tri-Ace game. Next you'll tell me that spellcasters suck and that most game breaking methods require far more effort to pull off then they're worth.

Also, beat Ys Origin. Now to beat it again with Hugo and that other guy. (Also to beat that one boss in the fire dungeon. Goddamn, I wish I could skip cutscenes.)

Xenogears is one of those games that tried to be more than it could afford to be. That, and getting torpedoed by FFVIII after FFVII turned out to be a surprise hit didn't help matters either.

That said, it's probably worth more for the giant robot anime homages than anything else at this point since Xenoblade is pretty much the superior experience.

Also, the damn game killed off CT's Lucca.

This sounds a lot like spam.

VP2: Got to the end of Chapter 5's forest and beat the boss.

I remember that game being really hard because I played it very wrong.......

4 mage team. Whatever could go wrong?

Wait. You can swap out Alicia?

Either way though the dungeon was cake, even with my 3 man team (gee game, why should I send up all my einhejiar before Seraphic Gate again?). Either way though, Alicia is stupidly overleveled for this point of the game and armed with the top super loot from the end of chapter 3 so she can chew through over half of the boss's health in one attack all by herself (of course in cutsceneland after the fight she's pretty much falling over herself due to being a female in a Tri-Ace JRPG; also, goddammit, this game used to look good back when it first came out and now it looks kinda janky, WTF!?).

VP2: Got to the end of Chapter 5's forest and beat the boss.

SMTIV: Did some random stuff, including collecting one part of Japan's Three Treasures. I should probably stop dicking around and get back to exploring Ikebukaro for more plot.

Ys Origin: Beat two more bosses and am now facing down Vava (or whatever the evil sorceress chick's name was).

And I thought the smelled bad on the outside.

This is so perfectly in season right now.

I'd wait a week. I won't be anywhere near a computer tomorrow.

Doesn't specify if this is just another Hero Mode or if it's a legitimate Second Quest.

Whatever happened to that quiz?
3900  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 1994 EGM preview of SFC Dragon Quest VI - It got me interested in the DQ series on: October 19, 2013, 02:47:19 AM
Obviously those screenshots are from an early beta since the sprites in the final SFC version look much better and more detailed.

The original DW got me interested in the Dragon Quest series being my first console RPG, though it would ironically be over a decade before I played another game in the franchise.

And by the looks of it Dragon Quest is headed towards a new dark age in North America since we're a ton of games behind Japan.

DQ has been in that dark age since IX had to be released out here by Nintendo. I'm still (kinda) bitter over NoA's localization teams having to choose DQVI over FEDS2 (though to be fair, I'm not that bitter as DQVI was ultimately the better remake; also, I'm even less bitter over NoA's localization teams choosing Bravely Default over DQVII).
