Thanks Aeolous,

*Still* took me three tries to do it, but I managed to win.

Was controlling Reyn and the boss kept charging me and pushing me into the bloody poison.

Cool beans man.

Anyways, I must admit there really is no efficient way of dealing with PXZ's endgame bullshit. MAP attacks are way too expensive to be useful, enemies have like 26k in HP on average (bosses have like 90-100k in HP, mid-bosses have like 60k+, and a number of enemies have 40k+), almost everybody has a guard to break through, the mass Def+15% skill still sucks (although I did get a good use out of it last stage by casting it on my last active unit for the turn on the turn that a bunch of reinforcements spawned), and of course the game giving you seven or six units divided across a map consisting of mostly narrow walkways isn't helping shit. You pretty much need two full attacks to bring a grunt down, maybe one if the enemy was successfully countered (and enemies love to proc Down and/or Stun to shut down any chance to speed things up) or you activated an Attack +15% skill and either land a bunch of crits or proc an additional support or solo attack skill.

I'll pull for SMRPG:LotSS.

I kinda want to win one of these again. And hopefully, I get my schedule sorted out so I don't have a repeat of the previous quiz.

I would totally give Risk Legacy another try. I was also under the impression the game only gives a limited number of plays--what happens when the units are fully leveled and the board is fully labeled? Does it become a customized Risk game from then on?

P.S. Risk Legacy is now ranked 100 on BGG.. that has to mean it's doing something right.

As I just said in the other page; you get to keep the board with all the personal changes you made over the course of the early games. It has the sum history of your gaming group recorded on its surface and has effectively become your gaming group's personal Risk Legacy board.

VP2: Finished Chapter 3. Fucking finally! It only took nigh onto 7 years to do so. Also the weapons I got from my departing party members are fucking sweet.

Who are you bringing to the fight and at what level?

Additionally, have you tried equipping some Terrain Defense gems on your allies?

Shulk, Reyn and ADMIN EDIT: Seventh.

Level 78

I've got Poison on their weapons as well as Topple and Daze Defense and it doesn't seem to make a bit of difference. ]

I see what you're doing wrong here.

First off, get rid of Shulk or Seven. Seven is a powerhouse but lacks in durability even when specced in speed and Shulk's piddly little Light Heal ain't gonna cut it for her. I'd recommend benching Shulk for now and going with either Dunban, Melia, or Sharla (in your case, probably the latter of the three).

Second, ditch the Poison gems. Unless your name is either Riki or Melia, you have pretty much no business with Poison. Bleed is a much better status effect to invest in as you have more people capable of inflicting it. Moreover, it might behoove you to invest in an Agility Down or two and a Strength Down or Ether Down gem, you'll take less damage from the resulting attacks (and I recall this boss being pretty Ether heavy) and more importantly you'll take less damage and deal more with an Agility Down proc (seriously, with a loadout like that, I took a party of Reyn, Dunban, and Riki through the majority of the postgame content). Also, if you don't have them already, get as much Agility on your guys as possible. +50 is the highest you can go via gems and it should be easily doable at this point of the game with two gems apiece (even if you have to go to less impressive armor for their embedded Agility V gems).

And finally, if you're having trouble keeping the fight in the center of the arena, then you might want to consider playing as Reyn for the fight so as to keep the aggro and thus the fight away from those corners. There's another gem called Good Footing that you might want to consider looking into as well as Aura Heal and Debuff Resist gems to avoid taking Topple and Daze.

SAO Episode 3: Aka, how many death flags can we trip in a single episode?

Eureka Seven: So I've finished rewatching this and I've got two things to comment on. First was that SWR Z1 was right, the Spec V Nirvash is hella broken, especially for a mecha that fights with hearts and rainbows and is only around for like 10 minutes at most. And second was that I forgotten just how many incidental characters get killed off at the end.

Oh man, I could spare $20 for a sale, but... Soul Sacrifice or Muramasa? On one hand, I already own Muramasa on the Wii, and I've heard there isn't a huge difference. On the other hand, Soul Sacrifice would be a bit of a gamble since I'm not sure if it's something I'd continue to enjoy, even after the demo.

I have Muramasa on Vita but I never played the Wii version.  From what I understand the main differences are an actual jump button (which I have trouble imagining not having...) and a much-improved translation.  But in terms of the game itself, it's supposed to be pretty much the same.  It fits the Vita really well, though.  Looks great on the Vita's screen and it's nice having it on the go.

There is supposed to be DLC with new characters and scenarios on the way, but as far as I know that stuff isn't even done yet...

I recall there being a jump button outside of battle, but yeah. Inside of battle your best bet was to stick to the other control style and just zip all over the place. You do less damage this way, but you're taking no damage either, outside of flying into an attack or failing to actually get out of the way of one.

Aladdin rocked. It had Costanza and Uncle Phil:P. But Gargoyles was the last great Cartoon IMO.  The Star Trek TNG voice casting initially drew me to it. I still say it could make a great movie. The CG tech is obviously there...

Nah man. I wouldn't say that Gargoyles was the last but the greatest, as there have been some good shows since then. IIRC Beast Wars was still running when Gargoyles finished, and Reboot only hit its prime around 97 (even though both of those are technically not cartoons as they're completely CGI animated). Plus 96-97 was when all those Cartoon Network shows started with Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, and so on.

I'm pretty fucking close to being done for good with Xenoblade.

I'm three levels above Lorethia, I've got the party AND the gems the wiki recommended, and I'm just getting slaughtered every time I fucking fight her.

No idea what I'm doing wrong and it's fucking retarded that it's taking me this long to try and beat this boss.

It doesn't help that I'm fighting her in a crossroads surrounded by four pools of poison that my two party members run into EVERY FUCKING FIGHT.

Jesus fucking christ I'm frustrated.

Who are you bringing to the fight and at what level?

Additionally, have you tried equipping some Terrain Defense gems on your allies?

Projectu Crossu Zoneu: Welp, got my second gameover. This one's more due to some bad planning and some bullshit on the game's part where two of stage 36's bosses procced their Speed *2 skills and effectively got four turns on Chris/Jill i.e. the mission critical unit. It sucks that, unless you've put up a defensive skill on a character, there's nothing you can do to mitigate the damage from a boss's Super, which in this case ate roughly 2/3rds of Chris/Jill's total health. And then the bosses just straight up hit like trucks on top of that so that defending every turn wasn't going to keep me alive. Oh and this all happened just as I was beginning to crack the boss cluster to begin with which means that I had done almost everything else needed to be done for the stage which means I've effectively lost an entire stage's worth of progress. And just like the previous stage, this one was a massive slog as well (fighting massive sacks of HP in narrow walkways with no mass Move +2 skills and almost no Ignore ZOC skills, and you've only got 8 units, split in half to cover both halves of the stage simultaneously, getting brickwalled on everything, and that's not even counting having to open the pods where popping out an enemy costs the unit the rest of their turn.

Seriously, this isn't a bad game, I just can't wait for it to be over and done with so that I'll never have to touch it again.

I neither won nor got a promotion. ;)

I think you mean Monsoon.

I'll admit that yesterday was not my finest hour.

A couple of things.

First, congrats Mongoose on your victory.

Second, congrats again Mongoose for your promotion.

Third, Radiant Historia; if only to motivate more people into playing that.

And finally I would've posted sooner, but man alive, have I been having computer trouble today.

If Risk Legacy didn't have the "Risk" label, I feel it would be more highly acclaimed by the board game intelligentsia.

It be even more highly acclaimed if they could change the perception that you only get so many games out of the board before you have to retire it and get a new one, because this is not true at all.
