I wonder if the protagonist this time will be an idiot savant again or a doormat again?

Also congrats on your 999th post Klyde and a preemptive congrats on your 1000th post.

So has anyone tried the Civilization board game (as in the board game based upon the video game series Civilization)?
4188  Media / General Games / Re: A Shantae Kickstarter belly dances onto the scene. on: September 24, 2013, 07:48:48 PM
The Kickstarter seems to have picked up some steam in the last couple of days.  Kicktraq (just a projection, sure) seems to estimate that at this rate they'll hit not just the first stretch goal, but the second too.

That's some useful info. I'll keep hanging out then and see if they make any.

Yeah. It looks like they've made 20k in the last two days alone. I guess the fact that it managed to succeed in getting funded has improved confidence in the project (well that, or the news that Inti-creates is on board as well as receiving the Mighty Beck Bump).

Edit: Also, they've added a PayPal option so the fear of not hitting any of the stretch goals in time for the Kickstarter's end so hopefully some of the more interesting ones get picked up along the way.

Also they unveiled a new stretch goal involving full voice acting and subtitles.

so weird... I came here to report that I finally got around to watching the first 5 eps of SAO and was pleasantly surprised by it. It appears I am late to the party...

On a side note, I totally agree with the Lunar nostalgia D. And of course, one can't help but draw a .hack comparison. Watching this briefly put me in a mood to try to pick up .hack again... 2 nights of playing reminded me just how bad the gameplay of the first quadrilogy is. I think the .hack quadrilogy is going to be the first series I drop in favor of a "lets play" synopsis to move onto GU some day. That is a different topic for a different board entirely though.

The problem with the IMOQ series is that it's effectively one game spread out over four disks, and once you've gained Data Draining you've more or less seen everything the game has to offer gameplay-wise. And then it mostly becomes a matter of filling out the Ryu Books, trading, and tracking down virus cores for the next fifty-five hours.

Cyan's (yes even Cyan) SwdTech

Only if his swordtech don't make you waste your time anymore and just act as a timer on Cyan only.

I was referring to Dispatch being so 'click it and go' and Retort being fairly powerful if used correctly (and to a much lesser extent, Stunner being almost worth the charge time).

They could start by nerfing Edgar's super broken tools.


Besides, you can't just nerf his tools since he's only part of the problem. You'd have to nerf Sabin's Blitzes, Shadow's Throw, Cyan's (yes even Cyan) SwdTech, some of Locke's Boomerang weapons, cut Gau's Rage list to a more sane number, debreak Relm's Sketch, lower MagPwr's effectiveness, make learn-able spell lists individualized, nerf Cure 2 and Cure 3, ditch Ultima altogether (or make it enemy exclusive), start making enemies stronger before the Magi-Tek Factory, and maybe nerf some of the female exclusive equipment (or at least make them harder to come by).

Am I the only one happy with Snows new look? I wasn't a fan of his look in XIII-2 at all. He actually looks like how I imagined him without the bandanna in XIII now. 

I still prefer his FFXIII-2 look the most since he was fucking Sabertooth, which made that ending with him the highlight of the game.

Microsoft sticks their foot in their mouth again...

And they were doing so well...

Alright, show of hands. Who here didn't expect this?

They're at least still ahead of their own game from May, for what little that's worth.

It probably would've helped matters if they waited until the 3rd game had come out before they launched the kickstarter.

I mean, the only games that were out by the start of this year were the GBC one (the very last GBC game) and the DSiWare one. I think more people are aware of this series through the infamy of the GBC's rarity than through actual exposure.

Uh, a thought occurred: I suppose the Transformers have never been in an SRW? Hasbro said no chance?

Tony Takara. But yes, they're pretty much rivals to Bandai so we're more likely to see Pacific Rim or MegasXLR make it in before Transformers.

TGS trailer. Looks like its going to be a bloody good time all around.

Liked the music as well.

Shantae doesn't need a genre classification to be her totally awesome hair-whipping, belly dancing, pirate stomping, animorph, half-genie self. 

If there's one thing Shantae can be classified as, it would be a funded kickstarter.
4199  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Robocop reboot 2014! on: September 23, 2013, 08:12:20 PM
That was another negative point about this reboot, and that's Lewis being a male.  I'm waiting on someone to comment on Harvey Dent being an African Amercian in Batman '89 and people complained, yet the movie was good, but Harvey wasn't a main character in that film.  I'm digressing, though.  Like I said, I'll check it out, on the aspect of me pretending that the original doesn't exist and review it based on that (even though that might be impossible,lol).

It's not really even that. I have no problem with a cosmetic change like with the Batsuit (especially since the 80's version looks like plastic), but this feels more like a needless attempt at political correctness.

It's like an FFVII remake changing Aerith into a dude so its less upsetting when Sephiroth brings stabbity.
4200  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Robocop reboot 2014! on: September 23, 2013, 04:37:20 PM
I think everyone just loved the grittyness of the original film.  It actually seemed like a scary place to live (although I hear the actual city of Detroit is deemed the worst city in America, it makes sense.).

It might be if anyone actually lived there anymore.

Also I'm kinda disappointed in hearing that Lewis will be male in this because it just screams to me that the change is only for the sake of not having to kill off a female character (that isn't also a villain, a slut, or the love interest (aka roaring rampage of revenge fodder)) when they will inevitably kill off Lewis in the next movie or so.
