Got the last Rare Keychain and now I still have 70 odd Keychains left to find. I've also cleared three powers on Very Hard in Kirby Fighters, only 9+ to go.

That said, I've decided to take a little break to go back to Wild Arms 2. Started on the Diablo Pillars, or at least before my PSX decided to be a PoSX and freeze just as I finished Plotomea, now I have to do that one all over again (because, no, I didn't want to save in a dungeon I couldn't up and leave).


@Arvis: Yeah - maybe this will be the game where i get all the Blue Bullets!

@Dice: Songstress IS good...for a couple of abilities. The rest feel like mostly filler. This game does stress me the hell out though, I don't necessarily WANT a 100% run, but so much shit is lost if you don't do everything EXACTLY right at just the right time. I've just taken the talk to everyone all the time approach.

How about not doing a 100% run and just go for the Dress Spheres. That way you'll get the better ending than the 'good' end.

Frankly, I feel that its just Starmongoose letting his new found power go to his head.

Down with the Bourgeois, down with the 1%.

I eat poop.

(how's that for abuse of newfound power!

Also, what newfound power - I've been a mod for like 4 years now)

Beat True Arena. Now to collect the last Rare Keychain, 80~90 non-Rare Keychains and to complete Kirby Fighters to 100% this game....Fuck.

Welp this has quickly escalated from voicing unpopular opinions to insulting people who play games you don't like.

Video games, ladies and gents.

(let's try and keep things civil, please)

Trap sprung, I guess.

So the last of the first round of DLC is now out and unh...

Code:
They might as well rename the series to Incest Emblem because Jesus Christ did this thing fuck the bed. Seriously, if I'm reading the translation correctly (and if the translation isn't crap to begin with), the big revelations from this puppy reveal how Lilith is yet another Kamui sibling and Mikoto was either Azura's Aunt or Sister which, in the case of the latter, means that the cannon ending means that Kamui marries his own goddamn aunt (instead of just his first cousin). And this is in addition to making Team Hoshido's Awakening Trio look like a bunch of fuckwits ("So we have to look for that Dragon Prince/ss guy/gal and to help him/her gather the five Prf weapons, and we know that s/he was in Nohr when we joined, but s/he isn't here anymore, oh well, lets go fight this guy/gal who's running around with team not-Nohr and turning into a Dragon to the death.") Also you can give someone Robin's promoted class and make even Casual Mode almost as unloseable as Phoenix Mode (since before, you had to worry about having one of like 6~12 (10~16) royals around to trip any Dragon Veins you might need to advance; now you just hand whomever you want an item that gives someone the ability to trip Dragon Veins like a prince/ss) for what its worth.

I really hope the localization does a better job filling in some of those gaps in the translations floating around because as it stands, this one kinda went off the deep end (on the plus side, if FE4 does get a remake in the near future, then they can't use the incest in that as a reason to not localize it).

Kirby 3D: Finished the Dede-detour and now have only True Arena and Kirby Fighters left to tackle. I can already tell that unless Galactica Knight shows up again, this won't be nearly as bullshit to 100% as Super Star Ultra was (and even if he does, it still probably won't; probably).

I agree that Hannibal was brilliant. I remember three or so episodes into the show having the thought 'This is so good there's no way it makes it.' It's too cerebral to catch a wide enough audience. I felt the beginning of the current season started to drag a little (especially since the season 2 finale was so frenetic and powerful) but it has started to pick up. For awhile I almost thought they should have just ended it with two. But the Red Dragon arc is excellent.

As a child, I really loved Pirates of Dark Water. I've been thinking of buying the series on Amazon. But I'm a little afraid I will watch it and not like it. That would destroy a little bit of my childhood.  

If anything, you're going to watch it, watch the show get up to the Ninth Treasure, and then wish you hadn't reminded yourself that they will never get the remaining four Treasures, fix Ren's Sword or save the day.

I love Mega Man, but there hasn't been a good Mega Man game made since 1997.

Mega Man X3
Release date(s): December 1, 1995

I'm OK with this.

I feel that Legends came out in 1998. Either way though, I feel that Zeros 2 & 3 were also good games and thus you are wrong Monsoon.

Fake Edit: Says Dec 97 in JP-land so I guess that base was covered.

Persona suxs and I'm pissed as hell that they're making Performa Emblem instead of doing literally anything else as a crossover (Super Mario Maker is a better crossover by default).

I also don't care for the current direction of the FE series since Awakening due to it turning more into Waifu Emblem. Granted, I didn't mind the way FE4 handled the generational gameplay, but that's because it wasn't screwing around with stupid shit like time travel or hyperbolic time chambers.

VNs can also go pound sand. How many endless variations of 'player stand-in goes to Japanese Anime Highschool and waifus a bunch of broken cunts in need of fixing/plugging' can a small chunk of humanity crank out in the space of 20+ years?

Any game with an overwhelming color pallet that looks like shit, is probably shit.

FFX has almost no goddamn enemy variety. Just the same ol' speedy dog, airborne bird/bat/whatever, armored shell guy, flan and the occasional fish, plus the odd FF regular sprinkled in for good measure.

Tales of Games are made of the worst parts of anime.

The SRW series hasn't had a good game since Z1.

Imageepoch games are uniformly bad (oh wait, that's not an opinion, that's a goddamn fact).

Level-5 sucks, and are bad, and write poopie games, filled with dumb grinding, and are only barely charming enough to get away with it (this is also not an opinion, but real truths).

Squeenix still sucks, but instead of just running roughshod over their IPs while trying to pretend that they're some kind of AAA developer, they're just sitting back and cashing in on all that gaming nostalgia from when they didn't completely suck.

Suikoden 3 was a good sequel (with issues admittedly, but as a sequel it pays out better than say FE10 did for FE9 or pretty much any Mana game ever made).

2D Zelda is vastly superior to 3D Zelda.

And the rest of this thread either agrees with me or are bad and wrong and should feel bad.

:P

Another cartoon that I felt was too short-lived was Dave the Barbarian.  I thought that show was hilarious and is one of my favorite Disney television cartoon series.  It only lasted 1 season. 

IIRC, this really didn't bring enough to the table to really warrant more than a second season. I can think of a dozen better shows to give out an extra season to before I'd even consider this one.


I respectfully disagree.  Dave the Barbarian easily had the potential to evolve beyond it's very sitcom-y first season.  I feel like it could have gone like Adventure Time did.  The first season of Adventure Time was goofbally sitcom-ish, but then it evolved and later seasons are rather good with involved and even continuous plotlines and everything. 

That being said, I would easily take another season of nu He-Man and nu Thundercats before a new season of Dave the Barbarian. 

Yeah, I feel like Adventure Time only worked due to the specific elements that it had coming together in the way that it did (and given the fact that its having trouble keeping it going isn't helping matters either). DtB would've needed a lot more than just 'be like Adventure Time' to have worked, especially in the time it came out in (since video game references/nostalgia wasn't quite the gold mine that it is today).

They've also added shops to the game (instead of PXZ1's just find everything on the field/enemy drops), so hopefully that cuts down on the tedious environment smashing that also plagued PXZ1.

Now had you said Super Dave, I would've gotten behind that.

KONAMI heritage games survey (IP awareness) -- NeoGAF

This is a (allegedly) legit survey.

Weird the Silent Hill wasn't even a choice.

Also, what is Sunset Riders? EDIT: Something that looks really cool Fffff

So Konami wants to know which IP to use for their next Pachislot, or are they just trying to figure what rates to charge for their IP themed Love Motel rooms?

Also Sunset Riders is indeed really cool, and I really hope that it doesn't win this little contest since I don't want to be tempted by a trashy Sunset Riders themed smartphone game.

Been playing Kirby: Triple Deluxe here and there since Saturday. Almost finished World 4.

Beaten in the wee hours of this morning. Now to dick around with the Arena and other modes (and to go back and find those three final rainbow keychains).

There's always one Kirby ability per game that breaks it.

Beetle Kirby made short work of every boss this time.

I abused the hell out of Archer Kirby's Camouflage and Charge Shot. Nothing like dropping a mid-boss in four hits without having to take a step.

Meanwhile, Sword, while stuffed with cute references (Skyward Sword anyone), was largely impractical for most of the later game since its wide variety of moves kinda led to it becoming somewhat of a master-of-none.

Performer was also hilariously OP'd since it is stuffed with invincibility frames and can jump all over the place. Very mobile which made it difficult for enemies to get a bead on you, but sometimes that mobility ended up launching you off a cliff, into a stage hazard or straight into the enemy's face. At least it was good for melting ice when needed, much better than Flame since that either killed your mobility or forced you to dash everywhere (and usually not through bosses so you're probably eating damage for that).

So FF7 is coming to iOS tonight with encounter toggle and a 'max' button (ie; level 99, 9999999 gil, etc).
https://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/final-fantasy-vii/id1021566244?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4


Despite that, I'm still kinda apprehensive in thinking how well this will run.... and y'know, it's on a phone, so battery life...

That and you can't ever update your phone's firmware (or whatever) or something might break, and like hell is Squeenix ever going to get around to fixing that shit.
