And Not-Queen's Blade gets a release date.

Although, given how long ago this was mentioned and the still-anemic series list it has going into this, who gives a fuck?

Though as I commented in that very article, I'm concerned about whether or not they would actually be able to release a quality product by June.  Sen no Kiseki just came out and its release was kind of a mess.  Though I guess a lot of its problems have been patched and they're still working on patching it, suddenly they're going to make the entire next game in less than 9 months?

I suspect that they're probably going to reuse Sen's engine for the next one. Of course, even taking that into consideration, 9 months is still a ridiculous time frame to develop an RPG with.

Then again, it could be something like Nayuta 2 which is only an ARPG, and with a reused engine would only require writing a new plot and designing new levels/bosses/abilities.

Just to reiterate, the Kiseki series has been running for the last ten years. Meanwhile, we're still waiting for game #2 to drop. Even with thrice the effort constantly and solely devoted to localizing this series over the next decade, we would still never see even half of the series localized.

I won't believe we're getting this game until the moment it hits store shelves.

And in all honesty, I still can't believe that we actually have a chance at getting one of these.


Edit: Changed the title to the version more people are familiar with, because I cannot believe that I'm the only one on this board who's familiar with this series.

Finally wrapped up that Black Samurai plot line in SMTIV.

Welp! So much for that. Looks like its back to tracking down the Black Samurai all over again.

So today (or tomorrow, depending on where you live) is Flavia's birthday. I can't quite tell if her name is supposed to be ironic or slightly racist.

Either way though, Flavia's role in the game is to be the endgame crutch character that these games tend to give you. In this capacity she does alright. Unfortunately though, her support options are extremely limited to The Avatar, their kid if they S-Rank each other, and one other, just like other late main game characters (at least she's better off than the post game characters). She also comes with no pre-built supports further placing her behind everybody else in the main game.

Thankfully, her class combination isn't too bad, starting with Hero with access to the Thief and Knight class trees for Pavise, Luna, Dual Guard+, Lucky Seven, and Movement +1 for skills. Her classes all use Swords except for Knight and General (and Bride if including DLC), so she'll probably want to reclass into Great Knight before hitting up either of those two. That said, her stat modifiers don't do her a hell of a lot of good though, as she gets a single point to three of the four big combat stats (Strength, Skill, and Speed), at the expense of a point in Magic and Defense (the remaining big four), leaving her with a total modifier of only +1.

The tl;dr is that she's helpful for when you get her if you need her but she's otherwise just there. She can't breed on her own, she doesn't have anything worth pairing her with the Avatar for, and she has only one support alternative to the much sought after the Avatar (and the Avatar related units). At least she has a large presence in the story for what its worth (even if she really doesn't do a hell of a lot after her introduction).


Sperg Edit: I guess she does deserve bonus points for being the first female Hero since FE6's Echidna (barring reclassing/promoting Cordelia, Severa, The Avatar or his Daughter/Daughters, or the Daughters of Donnel and Gregor; and disregarding Malice, especially FEDS2's 'retconned into a Myrmidon' Malice/Maris; and potentially disregarding Tellus's Nephenee since the Solider/Halberdier/Sentinel were only close approximations to the standard Mercenary/Hero classes which got upgraded to sudo-Lord classes (though she does come prepromoted in FE10)).

Double Sperg: And going even further than Echidna, the only other potential female Mercenaries/Heroes are FE4's Radney, BSFE's Malice, and FE5's Machua, and none of them actually make it to the Hero class (although in Badney's and Manchua's case that's more of an after effect of the Jugdral games not actually having a proper Mercenary/Myrmidon class, instead opting to introduce the Sword Fighter class which could either promote to the massively superior Swordmaster class or the 'only in FE5 can they use Axes and are thus proto GBA era Heroes' Mercenary class (and it depended entirely on who had the class); in Malice's case, she only has the one chapter and no means of promoting anyways).

@Top Picture: Why the hell are Spongebob and co in that picture and where are the Rugrats?

@Bottom Picture: Not pictured, G.I. Joe, Pirates of Dark Water, 90's X-Men, Captain Planet, Eek the Cat Thunder Lizards, and many more. Though I will admit, having both Mighty Mouse and Danger Mouse in the same picture almost makes up for it (though it needed more Biker Mice from Mars).

Finally wrapped up that Black Samurai plot line in SMTIV.

Also finally made it through chapter 21 in my FE:Awakening Lunatic run. I'm done violating my Iron Man rule (I really wanted to solve that puzzle).

I remember the days when it used to contain random quotes like "Training in 100 ton boxers.".

That's okay. I was too busy setting up for Halloween today to bother quizzing (in my pants).

I'll probably have to bump the thread on All Saints Day to make sure next week's attempt makes it.

Oh for f*ck's sake......
As if Friday wasn't stupid enough.
Chinese Food....

Stupid and racist.

If there's any reason to watch @Midnight, it's to watch them pick apart crap like this.

For me, it depends on how much artwork is used in the book and whether I liked the character designs to begin with.

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.
