Has anyone played Fez here? Heard the Bombcast just now and they say that the game is insane, they also compared it with the original The Legend of Zelda and Dark Souls so it must be good.

A shame is only on 360. At least for now anyway.

How the hell did they come up with likening it to the Original Zelda? Because it looks old and pixelated, or did they genre shift onto a new plane?

This game's story makes no fucking sense at all. It's like the writers wrote random shit on tomatoes, hurled them at a wall, and then looked at the ensuing chaos and thought "this is deeply philosophical and looks like a timeline! Brilliant!"

Whoever wrote this game needs to be shot.

You're only noticing this now? I just assumed that because they had a bunch of random artwork lying around that they didn't want to throw out they instead opted to use as much as they could by waving their hands saying "Time Kompression Travel" then promptly throwing in the plots of animes everyone watched recently to steal borrow and called it a sequel (and it turns out that DBKai was one of those shows).

This i'm interested in, Namco X Capcom is excellent.
Most people didn't like having to play the fighting mini-game against a dozen or more grunts every turn of every stage.

In this case I'd suspect that they're going with something closer to the Endless Frontier games which will probably work better as an SRPG than a TB RPG (thank god the dungeons in that game were as short as they were since the average encounter rate was fucking insane).

Goddamn do Roy and Leaf look goofy. At the very least though, we can finally say "Yes. Marth and Roy are in it." Plus Roy doesn't look like he's 12 so that's something.

An amusing note so far is that one of the kids starts off as a female mercenary making her the second character in the entire series to fill that niche (and the first not to get retconned into a myrmidon). Another amusing note is that another kid is the goddamn Nightwing.

Additionally there's a video out for the first DLC stage.

Code:
Your team is on the first map from the first game alongside Marth, Arum, and Ike as you take on pretty much every playable leading female throughout the series (i.e. Caeda, Cellica, Diadora, Julia, Lilina, Lyn, Erika, Elincia, and Micaiah) while both the stage and battle music are not only the same as the original's but they're even in chiptune format as well.

Ah. So that's why Roy looks like that. All that not-brown color threw me off (the lack of crocs didn't help things either). Now I can't not see Roy running around alongside Caim, hacking through wave after wave of Empire mooks, and building an A ranked support with Arioch.

Well that was an entourage of hilarity. Too bad most of the OVAs were based upon the shows of the seasons and not last seasons or random (and pornographic) projects. Also it needed more Gundam parody.

Watched Cowboy Bebop "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" again, this time Sunday night on the Sci Fi Channel. Pleasant surprise to come home to after a weekend away. Seems fresh after not seeing it for a while

Wait. Syfy's doing the whole anime thing again? WTF!?!

Forgive the double post but I've got footage of some boss fight gameplay: http://andriasang.com/con0r8/nayuta_no_kiseki_video/

Lookin' good.

All I can think of when I gaze upon the box art is that this game is telling me that only it has the brains to rule the galaxy.
3894  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: April 19, 2012, 12:34:32 AM
Watching thr Legend of Korra right now, is it just me or is this show taking place in 1950's new york?

I watched it too, and I think it's fantastic to see a sequel that is set further ahead in the future (def looks more 1930-40's-ish though...or some weird fusion of the lot).  I didn't see much of the first series, except when channel surfing -- but by god, I loved the production quality for this one!!!  Gorgeous!  And Korra is a great lead (I love her slightly musculature stature, a bold design move, and def works with her personality).  I think I'll keep watching this... is the first series worth a shot though?  I was kinda mixed with what I watched before.

The music reminds of Journey if it took place slightly more ...eastward. :D

I'll admit it, I too watched Avatar: The Next Airbender, though I felt like I was watching the set up to a show set entirely in pre-Sin invasion Zanarken instead.

Also Aang, dude, what the fuck? (At least you only took one episode to sense the protagonism within your daughter, plus you do rock the beard well enough.)

Whoops. I forgot about that.


He said you could marry any of your allies, ergo there is gay marriage.

About time, Japan!

Unfortunately it seems that the comment in question was only meant to describe the MU's options (makes sense since you can choose your own gender so you theoretically have your choice on the matter), everybody else is apparently hetro (though you never know).

Well apparently, while gay marriages are out, gay relationships aren't (as well as the occasional incest, even if some of it is only one sided
Code:
(Dammit Krom!)
).

Also apparently, there are some characters who won't get married to anybody aside from your MU (which basically means that they have no kids of their own since the MU's kid is fixed (unless it works like FE4 where it's the female who makes the kid and the male determines hair color and stats/skills inheritance)). Additionally, and unsurprisingly, Krom will be forced to get married at some point, even if it means hooking up with a generic female NPC. It looks like the playable unit count is up to 40 (27 units and 13 kids) with the possibility of more being unlocked under special circumstances.

Furthermore, there's a video of the first stage out on Youtube. Apparently the game starts on a rather interesting note.

Code:
It explains why your MU has amnesia as well as what all the time fuckery is about along with why that Jaffar wannabe has such terrible stats despite his prominence in the promotional material thus far.
3896  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem 3DS on: April 18, 2012, 10:49:41 AM
well they've already got another female myrmidon that im not familliar with. it just seems weird to me that they would choose Innes over Eirika or Ephram. if you've gotta chose a prepromote sniper louise,igreene and shinnon are all probally better than Innes.

if you wanna go that route there a decent a decent sized fanbase for Innes/Tana incest >_>

Lolol, you should give FE4 a whirl once in a while, if for no other reason than because there really isn't another game quite like it.


Anyways, due to places like China playing fast and loose with release dates FE11 has already hit the streets and trip reports are getting posted as we speak (caution: spoilers).

A few things to note right off the bat:
Code:
The details on Not!Marth's identity is revealed inside. I will not spoiler this here except to mention that it's pretty well done IMO.
The game looks to be pretty long as it's clocking in at a few prologue chapters, 25 main story chapters, apparently 17 gaiden chapters, and a few epilogue chapters.
Pretty much everybody can have a kid provided you can find somebody to pair them off with.
There is a Lunatic Mode for those who feel that the game makes you way too overpowered with such toys as Reclassing, Casual Mode, Double, Dual, DLC, and Dynamic Skill lists among other things.
Though the game sounds like it's pretty challenging regardless (but that could be the result of people trying to blitz through the game and not make use of everything at their disposal).
And basic stats seem to have an upper limit of 80 HP and 50 to the other stats (of course class caps will likely put them closer to 40s or 30s).

Did Star Wars Kinect also come with a Star Wars Kart mode?

Meanwhile....

If only VI had waited for this game instead, I might have been more interested. :negative:



Yeah. Sure. No Clinton jokes. But Obama and Bush II jokes are still fair game. Amirite?

Did you play Growlanser II/III or Arc The Lad? They had no pop culture jokes like that.

I have and I know; my comment was based on the fact that the comment was as specific as that was instead of saying "no president jokes" or something along those lines.


Edit: http://andriasang.com/con0pt/new_class_of_heroes_screens/

Or maybe not so interested.

No see, Superman isn't an idiot. He knows just how much of a pain in the ass he is. Superman is a dick; a 'super dick' if you will.
