Somehow I suspect I won't be surprised to see creepy ass baby shaped dolls as enemies when going after Three.

Here, have a trailer.

I agree it's a slog towards the end, but I never had that much trouble with Project X Zone. It took me 45 hours to finish, with some of the later fights taking 90-120 minutes to complete. I leveled units evenly and never had much trouble keeping them alive. The game is very generous when it comes to handing out low level items. Since you can use as much as you want in a single turn and on any allied unit on the map, it's very easy to get units back to safe health levels.

Yeah, its not as bad as I've been generally been painting it up but I still can't honestly recommend this game for anybody who isn't a fan of at least a number of the series involved in the game. Generally speaking, there really isn't a lot of depth to the game past pairing up different solo units to different pairs and what you equip your units with. You'll end up recruiting the exact same characters, at the exact same time, and play with them during the exact same missions, under almost the exact same circumstances (depending on how neglected some units might end up level wise), using the exact same skills learned at the exact same levels. The only other variations the game offers aside from solo assignments is your KO count, whether or not you've bothered to break every lootable container or not, and which boss you defeat on the three chapters where the victory condition includes beating one of two bosses (and the last instance has the third option of taking both out with a single MAP attack).


Anyways, a brief update on my Awakening: Classic Lunatic, Final Destination, DLC Characters Only run. Beat Smash Brethren 1, but lost Quan to a really unlucky crit to Ashnard, which sucks as he was one of my better units. And while I got Elincia to compensate for Moulder's loss and Clive for Quan's loss (he is, for all intents and purposes, Quan plus actual Luck), I'm still down a man from the current deployment limit for chapter 20.

Also, I've beaten some sidequests in VP2 and I'm ready to get this show back on the road. Onward to Japan Dipan.

If I don't end up getting stuck with making donuts or Mibbit Makes GBS-threads me, I'll be there.

Yeah, that is the core of the matter isn't it. Both Daredevil and Batman & Robin were terribly directed among other things and it showed.

Well, he can't be any worse than George Clooney and his Bat Rubber Nipples. Fake Edit: Oh god dammit, nevermind. I forgot that he was Daredevil.

And speaking of, lol at Affleck for finally rectifying his lack of being a Batman in an effort to catch up to Clooney in that regard.

I think the overall mood and flow of the game really decides if random battles work or not. Obviously the old way of loading and having a fight is very cumbersome, but I'd love to see more games transition smoothly from battle to exploration. That married with a fast paced, challenging, and fun combat system could lead to some very innovative games.



You mean like Xenoblade Chronicles (and to a much lesser extent, FFXII).

Caim is not only alive and well, but still a prince of his old country (or a lord of a new one), instead of a shit-wrecking hobo who's so pissed off that he could kill Death.

He did. I mean kill death...

Caim Kills Death

See?

You do realize that I had mentioned that detail for a reason, right?
3953  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Things players think are bad but really aren't on: August 22, 2013, 11:23:14 PM
What if a game had random battles, but you had fewer in a given area the higher your level was? and if you were at a certain experience level, you wouldn't get any battles at all -- thus, you can't grind at all, and you stop having regular battles when they quit being a threat?

Didn't Lost Odyssey basically do that (or did it forget about the whole, turning off encounters part of it)?
3954  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: August 22, 2013, 11:15:17 PM
Yeah, I wouldn't say that Tales of Favorite is my favorite Tales of working title.


Edit: http://gematsu.com/2013/08/tales-of-link-announced-for-smartphones

Welp. We got something out of Link.


Double Edit: http://www.siliconera.com/2013/09/04/tales-of-zestiria-is-most-likely-the-name-of-the-next-tales-game/

I think I'm going to go ahead and believe in the sign of ToZ.


Triple Edit: http://gematsu.com/2013/09/tales-of-bibliotheca-tales-of-phantasia-announced-for-ios

Have a Tales of Summary and a Tales of Phantasia 'now with DLC' iOS edition too.

http://gematsu.com/2013/08/drakengard-3-introduces-utautai-sister-two

And unless there's a Utautai Sister Six, that's the last of them.

Hmm.  Maybe not the seven deadly sins or a missing "boss" sister?

Maybe the dragon is the seventh sister?

Nah, that's pretty ridiculous as the dragon was confirmed as a 'he' in previous material. Although, either a brother or mother might be possible.

Knowing this series, literally A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G can happen.  Caim could come back to life, have made love to Nier's long, long ago ancestor and they had a kid, and that kid became a woman who made love to Seere and there ya go.  Poetry.

I actually loved that Drakengard 2 had an actual "happy" ending, every other ending between Drakengard and NieR is a mix of shit-awful to bittersweet at best.

Actually, according to the pre-release manga for this game, Caim is not only alive and well, but still a prince of his old country (or a lord of a new one), instead of a shit-wrecking hobo who's so pissed off that he could kill Death.

It was also heavily implied that he was Red Eyes during Nier's backstory.

I had a Power Glove.  It was so bad.

No, I don't mean that in a good way ;)

I, thankfully, stuck to the Zapper.

So I finally decided to break down and read (re:marathoned) Attack on Titan.

Code:
:tviv:....

...what?

Its a smiley tag used over at Something Awful. Specifically the one with the words "Oh No! Holy Fuck!" shooting out of a television screen and knocking over the smiley, couch and all. My guess is that it originated in The TV IV forum specifically (given that they share the same name, plus I think the IV stands for Intravenous as in those pouches that drip fluids into you at the hospital; and TV should be self explanatory).

The long belated point was that I wanted something to better express my feelings with so I made due with this place's lack of smileys by substituting for another. Really, they should've sent a poet, for I have no words (and I don't want to risk posting spoilers).


Edit:
I will say this though, I love how this series doesn't bother giving you any obvious buildup to its big reveals but instead slaps you across the face with them before you can realize where all the subtle clues are leading you to, and only then does it proceed to explain the logic behind the conclusion immediately afterwards. It's a complete inverse of how such reveals are usually handled, especially in manga and anime.
