Actually, they wouldn't end up like Quest since what happened to Quest was that Square hired away the leading talent of the team and left the remnants to flounder about on games like Hoshigami and Stella Deus (in fact, what ultimately ended up happening to the parts of Quest that Square didn't cannibalize back in the day went to Atlus).

IMPORTANT NOTE: That's speculation being reported as a rumor, it's not concrete information whatsoever.

Still, I'd make my suspicions of IntSys going to Urushihara Satoshi to update the character designs for a potential FE4/5 3DS remake all the more likely should such a remake be in the cards.

Though that's not to say that would necessarily be a good thing.

Edit: Might as well do a drive by posting of this.

Persona 3 movie get? (Unless Atlusageddon occurs or something.)

I was working an oddly timed morning shift.... so I feel less poopy.  Yaay can't wait for the next one T__T

So do we know what the next one will be then?

I have discovered a new guilty pleasure anime. Ghastly Prince Enma Burning Up! Based off the manga by Go Nagai, it's completely insane and is basically an ecchi. But it's actually really funny, even if it gets really really really weird at times.

Go Nagai Super Robot Shows are nothing to be Guilty about, IMO...

Pretty much ^this.

Meanwhile, there's a live action Gatchaman movie being made, which for those of you not in the know, is better known in the west as either Battle of the Planets or G-Force (or Science Ninja Team Gatchaman).

Either way, I'd love to see how they'll try to convince movie goers how not completely useless the Power of Heart is.

Out of shits and giggles I decided to check out the finale of IGPX, and goddamn this is still a terrible show. Its not just the fact that the whole thing is one of the most derivative things imaginable but its that goddamn announcer that pretty much ruins every race without fail and without that, all the show has is the useless character drama which pretty much came from a character drama mad lib. Thank god this is getting dumped for Sword Art Online next week.

Meanwhile, SciFi Harry is getting close to its conclusion and what a lemon it is. When I first watch the show, I was thinking it would be about this nerdy nobody getting psychic powers and abusing them in an effort to improve his quality of life only to have his efforts backfire on him completely. Instead, I got Government Conspiracy: The Anime made from the school of Hanna Barbera cartoon design. I'm enjoying seeing the bad animation, excessive use of animation shortcuts, and the number of conversations that simply amount to somebody saying someone else's name and nothing else, but in the end its just a terrible show and one that will quickly be left behind.

...Land Buggies, Ice Drillers...

I am so ashamed of myself. Those two. And Hydrofoils. This is what I want out of PS4.

I KNEW there was one other vehicle in that game.

Though to be perfectly honest, its pretty much the one series of theirs that actually deserves this treatment.

I just wish they weren't doing this to EVERYTHING.

Should you buy it for $40? No. There's no reason for it to be priced that high.

Yeah I don't remember it being /rare/. I have no idea why the cost is so inflated.

Retro gaming bubble. Everything older than the 360 is getting priced higher and higher as supply diminishes and nerds grow up, get jobs, and want to go back and play what they missed (also collectors and douche bags have already been bleeding the market for years on top of that).

And I'm out of these silly/bad music videos for now.
4615  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show! on: July 20, 2013, 11:51:45 PM
Well, if no one can make it, i'll probably just cancel it.

I've done my back out anyhow.

Oh thank god. I couldn't get near my computer all day today.

Also, sorry to hear about your back. Get well soon.

Maxed out my experience levels in Ys 1. Can't be the third boss.

Which boss was this again? was it the Vampire boss that teleports to the most inconvenient spots?

Yeah, although he doesn't teleport, he turns into a cloud of fuck you. Still I think I got the pattern down. Doesn't seem you can heal in battle in Chronicles.

Also the rings don't help much against bosses and the regular enemies are starting to cause problems.

Power Ring and Shield(?) Ring are the only rings that should be brought to boss fights anyways since they at least do something meaningful during boss fights.

Yeah, the beginning area has a really big spike, there's no curve at all, but it eases up as you progress.  I also found the first boss to be by far the hardest so far, with ~15 hours of play time. I think my husband is getting ready to tear the 3DS from my hands at this point.

Are you referring to the Hooded Man encounters or that demon plant lady at the end of the quest? Because I
demolished the latter of the two with three fire users and a defensive debuff in the first go (actually, I demolished the Hooded Man's second encounter on my second go at him due to press turning my way though the first fight in less than a turn giving me a massive head start on the second phase).

As for optimized App builds, I'd go for the extra skill slots on you and your demons first since they give you more abilities to work with which is great for fusions and general utility. Also, you're mandated to pick up the Scout App which costs 1AP to complete the tutorial mission so you'll need an extra level to hit the necessary App Points needed for the Move MP Up App. Of course, by the time the Move MP Up App shows up you'll probably be able to buy either the Magic or Agility Level +1 App to help get more millage out of levels which is probably the better choice earlier on.

Can't thank Atlus enough for putting the save anywhere feature in this game.  I would have quit by now if this feature wasn't in the game.

Hey, just got a new piece of armor.  Okay, so I'm weak to ice, but let's do this.

*Monster jumps out of a pond behind me and starts a fight*

Oh well, didn't have a chance to counter, but that's okay.

*Horde gets first attack and two moves per turn*

Hmmm, this could be tricky.

*Mabufu four times in a row*

....And my party is dead.  WTF!!!!!!??????

Just got to that fight myself. The Mabufu wasn't so much of a problem as a Lunge crit dropping my main character in one hit from full health which was immediately followed by my backup healer getting shredded and the rest of the fight turning into a damage race I almost won.

Also, Johnathan, you are so useless.

Also also, why is a hoard of fire weak demons not taking effective damage to fire spells yet they can still completely block ice and resist wind? I'm kinda regretting putting that dude with the swords stuck in him into a fusion since the physical resistance would be appreciated against all these crit happy motherfuckers.
4619  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shin Megami Tensei IV on: July 19, 2013, 11:55:13 AM
I just wanted to let you know in the beginning of the game, Charon and I were best friends! <3

I'm really just starting to explore Tokyo. I like this game a lot so far - really addicting. I'm having more fun in this game than I did in Strange Journey. I enjoy the exploration and the characters a whole lot more.

I agree with others that the demon fusion screen is frustrating. Why do I have to press Y TWICE just so I can choose my own summons. Atlus, why!?

I'm also trying to figure out Isabeau's alignment. I can tell Jonathan's and Walter's right off the bat, but is Isabeau supposed to be neutral?

Though I'm trying to figure out why Isabeau didn't turn into a daemon by reading manga.

Charon? Who's that?

That said, I'd assume that since Isabeau is the female lead, and as per tradition, is therefor going with you to the endgame no matter what route you take.

Not surprised. Hopefully Gungho or Marvelous will pick them up then (and I hope to god that Squeenix doesn't even touch them with a 39 and a half foot pole; those fuckers will bleed them dry and abandon their IPs after a single game).

Enjoying this a lot so far. Played for over 4 hours. The game looks great and I actually feel like having the 3D on is worth it. It's very polished and otherwise just feels really good. Press turn system is ace as always.

I'm putting my stats 3 Mag / 1 Agi / 1 Luk for the time being. As interesting as I'm sure the Physical route might be with the gear and the like, it's hard to really be able to decide against Magic, given how powerful it is in these games.

As far as progress goes, I beat the first boss.

What's everyone spent their App Points on so far? At level 10, I've got:
Skill Expansion 1 and 2, Mapper, Expand Stock 1, 2 and  3, Demon Skill +1, Scout and Demon Fusion. I've got HP and MP recovery unlocked, and would think that the latter is nice, but it's 40 points. Another Demon Skill slot for 30 would be good, too. And I guess that I should probably pick up Demolingual at some point. Priorities, ugh...

Currently at Level 5 right now and I've put my App Points on
Skill Expansion 1 and Fundraise, in addition to Mapper and Scout.

As for stats, I've been building with heavy emphasis on Strength and Agility right now with less emphasis on Magic and an occasional point in Dexterity and Luck.
