Oh my!

But, er, what timezone's 4th/6th?

That is, will those of us in North America be getting information tomorrow?

Probably.

Now whether the news is about the latest overpriced DLC sold piecemeal or not is the question.

Oh god. You just reminded me of that awesome Neogif thread about the video game boxarts of the future. Now I miss that thread. :(

Collect all seven to unlock an extra bonus mission where you protect a small Japanese village from bandits. :p

Goddammit PXZ. Did you really have to introduce breakable kibble into environments and semi randomly hide items in them? I'm spending more time satisfying my OCD curiosity than I am on the actual fights themselves. Never the less, thank you for making kibble removal a free action instead of a bust object/end turn deal like other SRPGs would do (then again, such games don't scatter such kibble all over the fucking stage and be semi-unpredictable about whether loot is present or not either).

Anyways, beat chapter 3. I now have the game's originals, Chun Li/Morgan, Akira/Pai Chan, and Frank West/Lei-Lei with Bahn and Tron Bonne as available supports.

For those who've been sitting on their hands, now's the time to get in on Soul Hackers.

EDGE should have put in the front "Where is your God now Xbots!?" instead. :P

The best part though is the PS4 + Xbone games special, followed immediately by the rest of the cover basically telling you to disregard the Xbone.

Meanwhile, on the SRW front. OE continues to look excellent.

Its also nice to see OYW Gundam and crew again.

I need to stop reading this thread or else there won't be any surprise outfits when the game finally comes out.

Wait... Cloud's clothes like FF7 Cloud or Advent Children/DoC Cloud?

Vanilla FFVII.

I thought that Blitzball FMV at the beginning of FFX, after Tidus gets done signing autographs and acting all cool with the crowd, was pretty badass.  It looked like a rough, badass, futuristic sport, like underwater rugby, with a metal song playing in the background.  Tidus even had that look when he sent that opposing player flying into the stands.   

Too bad he turned out to be one of those entitled, kinda spoilt-bratty, whiny type jocks with "first world problem" daddy issues. 

Don't forget that the game itself wasn't that hot either, and got really boring really fast.

Which reminds me, why does everyone adore Auron for being a badass?  Give a guy some shades and a giant sword and, voila, badass??
Yeah, I liked that Titus cutscene at the start too.  90% of jocks are much more calmer and cooler than he is.

That's pretty much my guess. Having an ensemble almost lifted straight out of Naruto didn't help matters either. (Even though Sephiroth was even more overrated for an almost entirely black outfit, long flowing white hair, and eyes as bishe as whoa (then again, he also had a long ass sword and a dead chick mounted on his mantle).)

Actually, my real guess is that teenagers are fucking morons. Especially if the majority of their literary experience derives from those little text boxes in video games or comic book speech bubbles.

Kinda like Wolverine really. Give a guy the ability to not die ever, claws, an attitude, and a bunch of super friends to attitude at while making them look like chumps, and watch like a dozen comic book mini series and nearly half a dozen movies about the guy roll on in.


And getting back on the subject yet again, the second fight in Riovanes Castle in FFT (provided you aren't brick walled by it). Namely because you just wrecked the guy who just wrecked an entire castle nearly single-handed plus his pals (plus you just got through probably the most difficult battle in a game with several difficult battles).

Alright Atlus/Marvelous/Sega/Namdai. I put my money on Project X Zone. Ball's in your court now. Localize SRW:OGs2/VC3.

Ah, but it was decided just after you left the chat. I was going to do Suikoden II, but people didn't feel comfortable with that. In the end it was settled the game would be...


*~Quiz #4 - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64)~*
Date: July 13th 2013
Time: (Countdown Clock Here!)


Having never played a Zelda game before, my boyfriend will be making the questions for this quiz. I'll still be researching them to make sure they are airtight though.

I got one!

What color was the cartridge originally?

A: Gold.

Q: What is the least possible number of hearts needed to beat the game with?

A: I'll tell you once I perform my minimalist run on the game.

Today's NUNPRIESTWITHANAXE Libra's birthday.

He got a Tree Branch that it made him pray to Naga, and a Superior Lance. I'm thinking about making him a father to somebody, but I'm stuck.

Ah Libra, the walking FE reference (well, less so than Tiki or Anna, but more so than pretty much every other G1er). Unlike the other G1 characters who only fit into general FE archetypes, Libra is pretty much FE4's Claude with a bit of FE7's Lucius's androgyny thrown in for good measure (not that Claude wasn't androgynous looking to begin with but it was never caused any confusion). Like Claude, he's one of the last recruitable potential fathers, he comes as a prepromoted healer, and he's more or less the game's male Resistance tank for G1. Unfortunately, there's no Valkyrie Staff in this game, anybody who has access to Staffs can use Fortify, no Holy Blood affecting growths, and he can't use offensive magic in his default class (instead opting for a hybrid class which, alongside Dark Knight and the DLC Dread Fighter, are the only classes he has that uses Strength at all). He's the only pure mage male in the game and it shows with his limited reclass set (i.e. Priests can become War Priests and Sages, Mages can become Sages or Dark Knights, and Dark Mages can become Dark Knights or Sorcerers), which means he has the second fewest class options next to Donnel. At least his classes all play well with each other and lead up to the ever fantastic Sorcerer.

As a father though Libra has the Dark Mage class line and little else. Unfortunately for Libra, out of all the children only Brady and Laurent are naturally inclined towards magic based classes (aside from Morgan who's position is mostly determined by his/her mother/father the Avatar, and perhaps Cynthia but he can't sire her either way) and both are male. As such their options for magic based classes are severely limited to Mage, Priest, Dark Mage, and Thief (kinda) class lines (the last of which Libra isn't even offering to begin with) thus Brady would only inherit Dark Mage/Sorcerer classes and Laurent would only inherit the far less valuable Priest/War Priest classes. On the other hand though, Inigo, Kjelle, and Yarne are the kids who would make the best use of Libra's class set as their mothers provide no magically inclined class beyond the Thief line, but even then Kjelle would rather have someone give her Galeforce access instead. Granted there's the possibility of passing down his magic classes to a daughter but unfortunately both Noire and Severa have default access to the Dark Mage line, Nah has overlap with the Mage line and is short on class options to begin with due to having Manakete, and along with Cynthia, Lucina cannot be sired by Libra. Thus Inigo and Yarne are the only kids who care about Libra at all (and yet he's still not even within either of their top four potential dads). Moreover, nobody really cares about Libra's meager +1 Res modifier since the most common Res cap modifier in G1 males is a flat 0 or a minor -1 (and the worst is -2; and all G2 characters get a +1 to all of their modifiers making -3 the worst possible Res cap for a G2 character). Hell, its more important that a child be male to have access to Dread Fighter and its Res +10 skill than to be sired by Libra (even a Libra!Brady/Nah can't get Morgan more than a +8 to his/her Res cap) in terms of Res. And Libra doesn't even have growth rates to fall back on since the father can only influence a third of a child's growth rates and there's nothing like Holy Blood, skills (and equipment) that can only be gained through inheritance, or fixed weapon ranks that can only be raised through promotion like Claude could fall back on.

The tl;dr is that he's a decent prepromote when you first get him that can turn into a fairly good staff bot/nosfertank later on in the main game but he's also a terrible father with only the promise of Dark Mage access keeping him from becoming a confirmed bachelor for life.

Y'know, taking every opportunity available to insult a game or franchise even when it adds nothing to the discussion at hand seems kind of... cheap.

I think he's talking about blitzball and not FFX itself.

^This. The cutscene would have you think that Blitzball is more than underwater soccer which it unfortunately isn't. And its not even a good not-soccer simulator given that Blitzball's difficulty is entirely front loaded (which can only be surmounted if you obtain the game breaking move from that one QTE on the boat; otherwise you're stuck waiting until you can start grinding bigger numbers) and outside of its introduction in the plot all its good for is to grind for Wakka's stuffs.

And while I may not like FFX in some ways, its definitely not a game I can honestly say that I hate or is shit.


Anyways, to the topic at hand, the reunion with Lavitz in Legend of Dragoon after he leaves your party is another contribution I'm making to the pile of badass.

Now that Don Mattrick as CEO of Zynga has been confirmed.... something foul is in the air. Zynga is many things, but they certainly aren't stupid. So why would they want the guy that basically destroyed customer confidence in the XBox name? Especially considering that Zynga themselves aren't very well loved by the gaming community.

The simplest explanation would be that Mattrick is bringing over some of his Microsoft money and is personally investing it in Zynga.

They probably offered him a lot of money and he took them up on the offer.  I love some of the quotes online I've read:

"Wow, with stuff like EA and the Xbox One DRM launch on his resume, this guy should fit right in at Zynga! Welcome aboard, sir! "

"If you want to play FarmVille offline, we have a product for you - It's called "Agriculture.'"

That, or he's trying to dodge a bullet by taking another one.
