I like Inigo. On my first playthrough he was basically a little clone of Donnel with better stats. The two of them being the only characters with legendary weapons since they had 50+ luck.

To be fair to him, of all the sons, only he, Owain, and Brady can obtain Galeforce at all (and Morgan, but Morgan can do pretty much anything anyways) and the latter two are more magic oriented than he is. Basically, he's probably the best kid combat potential wise outside of Morgan, even though stat cap modifier wise he's pretty much the worst given that his mother has a flat 0 to overall stat mods (she gets 1 point in Skill and Speed and loses 1 point in Def and Res) and with either The Vaike or Gaius as his dad his modifiers will sum up to a meager +7 (solely due to being a child). That said he probably wants either Frederick or Chrom as a father to either get more classes to use his eventual Axefaire on (with Frederick as a dad Inigo will have access to every axe using class in the game outside of Overlord) or Rightful King boosting his skill activation rates (as he will have a lot of skills with activation rates). He just has no use for S-ranking the Avatar outside of passing down Rightful King to Morgan.

Also, I was wrong earlier. The Gregor x Olivia pairing is the absolute worst pairing in the game. The only thing Inigo gains from Gregor is a sole +1 keeping him from having the least statistical advantage possible and nothing else. Even Frederick x Sully nets Kjelle a net positive of +3 on top of her child gains. Hell, both Nowi and Tiki sport an overall +5 to their stat cap modifiers making Gregor!Inigo 3 points away from statistically being equal to a first genner and with nothing but a really late and optional join time to show for it (seriously, his Paralogue is only behind Gerome in enemy level).

Sorry for the double sperg, it took awhile but I remembered what his statistical abnormality was.

And its Inigo's birthday. Cervantes, you killed his father, prepare to die!

Anyways, he gets three great class trees in Mercenary, Myrmidon, and Barbarian as well as his pick of his mother's skills Galeforce. He's one of the three kids who can inherit Royal Weapon from Chrom and is one of the better users of it. Additionally Olivia produces the most physically oriented children outside of a Strength/Defense heavy Avatar. If his father is Virion and he took Lancefaire from his mother he can be a full on weapons master (although no Healtouch for staffs). He makes for a good son out of Frederick and Kellam. Ricken also has potential to be a good father for him. Gregor x Olivia is tied for the worst pairing in the game along with Frederick x Sully as neither child will inherit more than stat modifiers and a free skill from their fathers. No potential father will secure him an additional 9 classes beyond his mother's inheritance (not including DLC). Unfortunately his stat modifiers do nothing extraordinary for him or Morgan. He's ultimately a very solid child but nothing spectacular outside of his potential class screwage.

And suddenly we see why they went and numbered this. They would've gotten to Scorpion King levels of offshoots if they hadn't.

Also lol Squeenix, for planning a direct sequel to a game you've been sitting on and have yet to actually release since 2006. Looks like they've got enough stuff on the cutting room floor to make a whole new game out of again.

But that's such a common fantasy trope, though.  Not just in video games but in movies too.  How many "teen beat" movies feature the whole "cute childhood friend who was under your nose all along" plotline? 

Yeah, perhaps the "childhood friend" thing is played out, but it will never die.  Especially in the realm of love adventures.  Every love adventure needs the trophy girl, the childhood friend, the moe klutz, the tsundere, and the wildcard (sometimes it's an older woman.)

Then again, JRPG romances always end badly.  Think about how many JRPG protagonists still have both parents.  When a JRPG couple hooks up, one WILL die. 

On the other hand I would like the "childhood friend" thing to not be the constant winner when it comes to multiple love interests. It was only amusing in DQV because the game gave you the final say on the matter and, at least in the original version, the game punished you for not choosing the "childhood friend" by taking a dump on her (which is amusing in the cruelty option department).

And the same goes for the first girl (who are typically the "childhood friend" even if they don't start out as one).

Adol-Dogi in Ys.

Come on, you know they're into each other.  Why else is Adol always completely oblivious to the affections of all the girls who fall in love with him?  And why are Adol and Dogi always adventuring together...

Unfortunately, it was never meant to be as Dogi is far too in love with his own wall busting abilities.

Also considering that Adol is the one who wrote of his adventures, there might be the possibility of an exaggeration or two slipping in there.

Tales of Get!

Now I just need a PS3 and I'll be kosher.

Everyone says that, but the actress is naturally Asutralian. And if you listen to her speak in interviews, she sounds exactly like Vanille.  There's not a lot of switching accents because that is her accent.  Georgia's adorable, her interviews are great fun to watch.

I think its because she tries to not have an Australian accent at times, which is silly because, come on, she comes from a land down under.

Wow, they're actually localizing this (and not the strictly inferior original version to boot).

Well then, lets go three for three and hope that somebody brings over a Queen's Blade/Gate game (preferably Gate, but I'll accept Blade since Gate does involve licensing hell).

Dammit man! Spoilers. I'm in the middle of watching that.

Is 'Dice' one of these names because Dice is a good name?

What if he named Sarah, Dice?

And yeah Reimi was pretty fun to play as.  When it comes to skill chains, she gots le damage in spades.

When I get back to Korea I'll send you my PSN ID.

I'll be pretty rusty so you'll have a good chance against me!
Aeolus - I've done a little bit of Tephra Caves - and got my ass kicked by level 97 spiders. I've got about 20 levels to go.

I might check out Colony 9 and Bionis' Leg now though, thanks.

C'mon man.  Tekken is Korea's favorite fighting game.  You should be awesome at it by now!

And yeah, Tephra cave is ridiculous as far as enemy levels go, but he's right it does have some nice crystal deposits.  I kinda wonder if Tephra Caves is for New Game+.  Seems like it to me given the level discrepancy.

Nah, you can totally do Tephra Depths during the first run since a bunch of quests open up that by the time you complete most of them you should be powerful enough to challenge the cave. Also the performance jump between rank 5 Ether Crystals and rank 6 Ether Crystals is fucking huge, like 2x better than the best rank 5 can do. Plus, the way that high level areas have their levels distributed, you can easily go to one, fight for a bit, then move on to the next. It also helps to do the final dungeon up to the point of no return which occurs when you step on a teleporter after beating a Dragon boss. In fact its probably better to treat all the side stuff that opens up once you open up Bionis's Interior as post game stuff so you get at least one fight against the final boss at the appropriate level.

Of course the one thing that irritates me about dealing with Tephra Depths is that you need to loot enemies therein to complete Reyn's second personality quest, and by the time you're ready to do that, he's probably maxed out his other four skill sets a while ago. Also Tephra Depths is not the worst thing to deal with in terms of the post game as there are some Unique Monsters that are ridiculously powerful and will kick your ass even after clearing Tephra Depths.

That said, update time:

Cleared. Took about 4 hours. Thank god there's a route split right after this.

The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD Screenshots -- Source: All Games Beta

Shiny. @_@'

No kidding.  While I still feel that, even if it was the more obvious (and thus avoided) choice, Twilight Princess or any other title would have suited an HD remake much more.

Nevertheless, this is quite lovely, I'm sure it's even better in motion.

I still find it funny that they got rid of the Tingle Tuner when they could've just used the WiiU's game pad. Though I will admit it was pretty game breaking to have bombs on command long before you had access to bombs (also made for a nice treasure radar which was especially useful for fishing up treasures from the sea).
4078  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: August 06, 2013, 05:17:16 AM
To add more to the discussion, I don't necessarily feel that it's large-website homogenization that's the problem here.  In recent years IGN has really been pushing video/audio content over written content.  Written reviews have also gotten noticeably shorter, no doubt because they ran some numbers and figured most people don't actually read them beyond a certain length so why bother.  But I think the biggest problem is that they really want to be an internet TV channel or something, with video news, video reviews, video editorials, etc.  There is much less emphasis on the written word these days.  Personally I hate video content because I can't just skim it and pick out the parts I care about, but I guess I'm in the minority.

P.S.: I don't give a shit about their score.  That was never my complaint.

You forgot the e-Sports. They really want competitive videogame playing to become ubiquitous enough to garner a spot on basic cable (as well as making themselves the forefront of that movement).

Tekken Tag Tournament 2:

Finally after a long time of wanting to get into Tag 2 I've spent 2 days with the game and it has become easily one of my favorites (3D) fighting games.

Also I can't get enough of "Fallen Garden/Unknown". The guys that worked on the soundtrack did an excellent job.

Are you playing on 360 or PS3?

Playing Xenoblade. Got to the heart of the Bionis interior and getting my ass kicked. Will be grinding tonight while I check on employment prospects.

Oh god, that particular battle was such a massive slowdown fest. It was like playing Odin's Sphere all over again. Coincidentally, you should be strong enough now to start checking out some of the prohibitively high level areas like in around Colony 9 and Bionis's Leg. Also, if you're brave enough (or are willing to abuse the Save anywhere feature the game has), you can take a quick dash into and out of Tephera Caves Depths for some sicknasty Ether Crystal deposits (and some sweet Location/Landmark Discovery boosts).

FFX you could rename Tidus, but the last one you could name your whole party was FFIX, unless you count the spin-offs, then I think it was 4 Heroes.

It's no coincidence that the decline of a renameable party coincides with the rise in voice acting in games.

What? You don't like to be called Mai Boi or Guv' everytime, all the time?
