I got a Wii U!  I traded in a bunch of stuff and got it for less than $100.  The Wind Waker bundle as well.

I've played the beginning of WW dozens of times, but this was the first time I did a "perfect run" of the prologue (ie; I jumped platforms and swung across  the lanterns without falling at all --- something I've oddly had trouble with  -- and I didn't get caught once at the Forsaken Fortress -- though I almost did and the way the screen alerts you always gives my heart a jump).

Needless to say (but I will): It looks pretty freaking beautiful and hope we'll see other HD remasters of old GC titles because that era had some gems.

How do I add you all as friends??? D:
...if you wanted...

Congrats Dice.

I'm holding off on getting one until Nintendo or Atlus starts talking about SMTxFE and/or Monolithsoft or Nintendo starts talking about X again.

omg, I'm never posting things again.  between Yodes pissing on something funny and y'all others pissing on Daily Mail (I just wanted to link the video but they have their own shitty video streamer I don't know how to link)

Hey now, I didn't piss on anything.

Come back Dice. I'll miss you! ;_;

Well..My internet just didnt let me participate properly.. It was still a fun though extremely fragmented quiz.. I didnt even get to see half the questions, I dont even know who won or what the hell happened. WHAT IS THIS MADNESS? WHAT IS A MAN?

Edit: I am going to forever wonder about what transpired in that infamous Chrono Cross Quiz.. It will haunt me for the rest of my life. I shall be left in the darkness for all eternity.
WHAT could the next quiz possibly be? Can we have an ace attorney or zero escape quiz pretty please?!!!

I suspect that you were getting pulled into a parallel dimension where you didn't participate in the quiz and Mibbit was running some sort of Xanatos Gambit to get you back to it so you could participate and win a Frozen Flame while body-swapping you with Holykael999 to minimize the risk.

Too bad, Prometheus won it instead. :/

So for $100, what is the name of the attack used when the command 236P is used?

It's Quiz day!

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down

Wrong game. That's Chrono TRIGGER.

Beat Chapter 22 in my Lunatic Run on FE:Awakening. Wound up leaning on Florina instead of Est since Est had just reclassed into a Dark Knight and I had Florina pack a Brave Lance, a Beast Killer, and a Hammer for mopping up the Deadlords. Micaiah also got some rare field time as well thanks to her shiny new Mire tome for long range sniping. Of course she still sucks at using it due to her low level/stats (and the fact that there's almost nothing you can do to improve Mire's performance beyond having higher Magic and Skill). I'm probably going to have to burn a Hammerne staff on it provided that I have one to keep her useful (she had to burn 3 shots on the Helswath dude in order to avoid his Counter skill), and I still wound up accidentally burning a use off of it due to accidentally having Ayra attack with a Silver Sword instead of her Brave Sword. Fortunately, I managed to avoid wasting any other Legendaries by having all my ranged attackers gang up on the Gungnir Paladin, Florina two shot the frail Valflame Valkyrie with her Brave Lance, switching to Seliph to ORKO the Yewfelle Sniper with an Astra proc (not that I needed it), and had a combination of Est and her Superior Sword and Chrom and his Killer Bow plus Aether to take down the Balmug Swordmaster. Tiki wound up taking down one of the other Deadlords for some badly needed experience before I sent her to job Aversa since she really wasn't a threat compared to any of the other enemies in the stage (especially since Chrom could just Nuclear Option her ass into Chapter 25). In the end I reclassed Seliph into a Trickster for Lucky Seven and I managed to get through without any casualties. Next chapter should be entertaining given my complete and utter lack of Avatar use this playthrough (of course, Chrom could just solo Validar anyway given his stats being maxed out aside from Magic and Resistance).

SMTIV: Black Samurai Showdown. Welp. I've caught up to the BS again and wouldn't you know it, now I get to play the alignment game while on a fetch quest for her. What I can't believe is with all this alignment stuff dropping now I'm beginning to wonder just how much I have left in this game? I mean, was half of this game really about trying to get to a fucking bookstore? Oh well, either way I'm probably going to lean towards Chaos until the route confirmation choice since while I like Johnathan better than Walter, I hate that the Law choices still suck in this game (why is Law always such a non-option in these games?). At this point I should probably get the Hunter Tournament Preliminaries out of the way to make sure I don't veer too far into Chaos territory and I think I'm coming up on the point where I'm going to be hitting the route choice soon. About level 48 now. Also had Burroughs randomly warn me about a seriously strong enemy while I was hanging in the park behind Shibuya (I chose to bail thinking it was some kind of boss fight, but I've been all over the area and haven't gotten the prompt again; I suspect it may have been some rare encounter or some other kind of BS at this point). Also also, wound up getting the App DLC during the sale last week (but I sold the App Point items for cash instead to complete the last of the Ginza shopping quests, and to preserve some semblance of challenge as bosses have been rolling over more or less (barring the misfires where I blew it on trying to figure out boss weaknesses and nailed a reflection or drain instead)).

You can also have your character wield a Bo Staff in Jade Empire and in Dragon Quest IX.

Wouldn't say no to a Lucha Libre grappler with masks as weapons, either. 

I see you're all geared up for the quiz tomorrow.

Early reviews and Impressions are really high.

My butt is tingling with excitement~!!!!!!!

Speaking of which, what's the ETA on this site's preview/review?

This is one of those cases where I'd totally go digital instead of having to pay the GS tax.

Bamping for releaseage. Now to wait for it to go on sale.

Holy shit! This thread fell off the front page. Better fix it with a post...


...and a link.

(Granted this is more likely to be about Trauma Center whatever than about a new Persona or SMT but it is sporting the words "Persist 5", "Gold 4", and "Trial 2", so I can't rule the possibility out completely.)

Who says E3 is the only time for these. These are great any time of the year.

I wouldn't mind Hyrule Castle as a "safe" place for once too... It's always been under some shitty influence and you can't seem to tread it without some asshole trying to kill you.  The town's are fine, but shit turns bad as soon as you hit up the castle for whatever reason.

To be fair, it's basically the good guy's stronghold and usually the ground zero for when shit goes down. Kinda like how you know shit just got real in a Godzilla movie when the Tokyo Tower gets destroyed.

That said, the castle is more or less left alone in Spirit Tracks. Also Zelda 2, but it's not so much a castle as it is a fancy room with a chick sleeping in the middle of it (at least it had a moat).

As for Fire-dungeons, they need one to show up later rather than earlier so that they can be as menacing as fire dungeons need to be (like Super Metroid's Lower Norfair menacing). Skyward Sword actually got fairly close on that one but needed it to not be the second fire based dungeon in the game (and the boss to not be Grigham again).

My big beef with WW's dungeons (lack of them aside), was the fact that they all felt really big and really empty. Like room, key, room, key, room, key, a hidden alcove for one of those hidden statues, room, key, boss. And ascetically speaking, I only recall Dragon Roost Island and the Tower of the Gods as having interesting moments to them (maybe Ganon's Tower if you count the road between it and Hyrule Castle). Whereas I remember the Stone Tower from MM because you literally turned the dungeon on its head, or SS's Ancient Cistern because of the whole life & death/Buddhist theme to it.

Also Ganon's Tower counting as a dungeon was almost as lame as Skyward Sword's final dungeon.

That's when I'll be picking up my Playstation 4.

C-c-c-combo breaker!

Aww man. I was totally enjoying sitting back and watching Yggdrasil fill this page with his RSS feed style posting. He was on his quintuple post!
