Easy or not, I still hate the Floating Continent until a few level ups (there's no where else worth levelling by that point), and The Fanatics Tower (?).  Opera House timed segment sucks beans too.

But the Floating Continent is the only legitimately challenging part of the game, filled with level appropriate enemies that actually have challenging move sets instead of some useless variation on hit/critical/weak base-level spell/spell too expensive to cast.

I'm waiting for A Land Before Time XXIV: The Big Meteor.

Ah well, hopefully the series can help at least *a few* kids learn Roman numerals... Honestly love when a kid goes, "Can I get Grand Theft Auto Eye-Vee?"

Sadly, I don't think they're using roman numerals anymore. But that was when I last checked back when LBT 12 hit store shelves.

It's one way to make Lightning look less ridiculous.

Haha cool kit. x)

And....oh dear god, no.

I know....a wii and an old school TV? Horrifiying.

Nah man. It's the fact that there's yet another Land Before Time movie (I think we're up to 20 now). And just like before there's all of one LBT movie that's not a terrible cash-in sequel.

The Hobbit looked like it was playing in fast forward in 48 fps and the storyline had no resolution for anything. I mean, even in Fellowship of the Ring there was a resolution for the fellowship, and Boromir. For the Hobbit, it really shows that it's one book split into three movies.
I thought it was 2 movies?

Cha-Ching.  3 movies.

Meanwhile we're only getting one LÚ MisÚ which is based off of one of the longest tales ever committed to paper (it puts War and Peace to shame), and compared to a trilogy based off a book shorter than any of the three books in its succeeding trilogy it's downright silly.

And let it be said that I will not be surprised if somehow, and for some reason, the Tom Babadil/Old Willow segment from the Fellowship of the Ring will make it into the next Hobbit movie purely for the sake of padding out the movie (hell, they're already padding it out with a D&D quest to slay the Necromancer, which I also wouldn't be surprised to find it based off the Barrow Downs segment also missing from the Fellowship movie). It's not like Jackson's writing fanfiction....just, rearranging the order of events that already existed (in a different set of works) slightly to compensate for only having half an already short book's worth of material to film left not covering it the first time when it would've been more appropriate.

I love the chick to the right.

I want to say that the booth on the left end of the picture is the Final Fantasy XIII equivalent of the TARDIS and thus that guy between Lightning and the TARDIS is actually the FFXIII equivalent of The Doctor, but then I remember that this game was written by the same guys who took three games to realize that the best way to foist your shallow one dimensional character onto your fanbase is to not let anybody else in to show her up or become the surprise protagonist (wutup Fang).

Still, it would be a far greater explanation as to how Lightning is getting back to the Dawn of the First Day 72hrs remaining then whatever bullshit they're probably going to end up shitting out of their uncreative rectums (probably something involving Caius since he's still not Marty Stu enough yet).

I suppose that the aliens are gone now, for their planet needed them.

Too bad they died on the way there.

Good for us though.

I started playing Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones the other day. I'm on Chapter 8, and so far I haven't had too much trouble with the difficulty, although I did choose Normal instead of hard. Anyone who has played FE:SS, would you recommend doing Eirika or Ephraim's routes? Also, are the trainee characters worth raising? I made Ross into a pirate, but I dunno if I wanna do the same for the other two trainees when I get them.

I liked Amelia better than the other trainees. She can promote into a General eventually, and she has really good speed growth so you'll have a General with high DEF and high SPD as well as good damage. Plus you know, female General.

Fun fact: Amelia was going to have a unique class in the beta build, which is like pre-Pegasus Knight

The only really notable difference between Eirika's and Ephraim's routes is a couple of maps during the middle portion of the game, of which Ephraim's contains the more difficult maps (fuck that boat). Beyond that you'll still get the same characters at roughly similar levels when they meet up again during the desert stage.

As for the yet unmentioned trainee Ewan, he's kinda terrible to start with but can eventually into your best Druid while Knoll takes the Summoner class. Otherwise he can just be yet another Sage or your best candidate for becoming a Mage Knight.

And one more note about Amelia is that she also receives a unique sprite as a Cavalier.

Not that hard if you use Sabin, Edgar, or Terra or a Setzer equipped with Fixed Dice in any capacity (except for the Warring Triad bosses) unless you are just rocking Celes, Edgar, Setzer only in which case it can be fairly difficult if you don't know what you are doing since you'll only have three parties of 1.

To be fair to the Mayans though, how many more years did they need to slap onto their calender?

After all you kinda get tired of carving out all those extra seasons and their solstices on your over-sized ancient stone tablet and you start to feel like an ancient Mayan Spergtzalcoatl.

Unless of course the calender was to keep track of how long the Mayans had left on their alien built lost temple timeshares. But then the joke's on them since the Spaniard Conquistadors came and wiped them all out so nobody's using those old temples anyway. They could've just beamed down and beamed them back up at any time during the last 500+ years.

I actually agree with you. :)

If you are going to have a villian that's legitimately insane (That look in his eyes when he is peering inside the incinertaed still sends shivers down my spine) it's going to be tough to make it not a bit charicature-ish. Ever17 completely avoided this issue by simply not having a villian. :P

Outside of the older protagonist's hideous luck and monumental stupidity, that is.

("Here have an emergency submarine. Oh too bad somebody forgot to turn off the dome lights last night, now you get to sink to your watery grave. Of course if only you could get beamed a message from your future son to quit your drowning, rescue the girl, and save the fucking day you wouldn't have to meet your untimely end. Not like that's that big of a deal given how you've already taken a deadly plague and some explosive decompression to the face so what's a goodly kilometer or two of ocean to swim through on a single breath of air?")

Well I guess the AI chick could be perceived as villainous, but even that's kind of a stretch.

The other AI chick on the other hand....

combat looks exactly the same as 13/13-2 but with one character -_-

Except the two defining characteristics of FFXIII's combat system are the paradigm shifts and the stagger system, neither of which works at all when you only have one character.  It may look similar, but I seriously doubt it plays the same (and if it does then S-E are even bigger idiots than I thought.

Its probably going to work just like it did in the Lightning DLC for XIII-2 where you'll have a physical paradigm, two mage paradigms, a stat boosting paradigm, and a stat debuff paradigm. The thread linked to above noted what looked like three different roles to paradigm switch to; including Cerberus, Divinity, and Enchantment. Don't know if there'll be a stagger system but I wouldn't doubt it since that DLC had it too.

Cleaned house on the Black Panther school after doofing around a bit at the Arena during my stay at the Jade Empire. You'd think dumping all my level points into Body would bite me in the ass at some point but between the various perks and gems I've managed to keep myself semi-balanced buildwise (but I'm more willing to blame the massive Spirit boost on the one construction I've made thus far). Helps that I've been dumping all of my style points into White Fang and have maxed it out.

Still no Silk Fox but I'm getting close. I can feel it.

So the rumored price drop happened after all.
