I feel like I just sold a winning loterry ticket (ok, I GROSSLY exaggerated that comment).

I'm really happy for you though, Monsoon, no WAY I would have done anywhere NEAR that well even if i did play. 

Love these Mongoosey

That's okay Dice, nobody else who played this time did well either. Monsoon swept the competition up single-handedly.

^You know what kind of team also has at least one female member? Super Sentai teams. And just as Super Sentai teams need a Red Ranger to be leader, they also need a Pink Ranger to be the chick/hostage bait.

It almost sounds like he's caving under some kind of peer pressure to keep the "boy's club."  Flimsy reasoning at best.  And that's kinda lame to me, because SMT is all about breaking traditions, defying conventions, and not following the crowd.  

Not just Maya and P3 girl, but SMT If... gave the option of a female lead (who made cameos in Persona games as Tammy/Tamaki.)  

To be fair, with Atlus's parent company currently in hot water, I can see why risking the better part of your limited fanbase on such an ascetic choice isn't something you'd want to jump at.

On the other hand, this is still pretty cowardly.

On the other other hand, you know that there will be a stealth main character hiding in any JRPG with a female lead these days, ready to undermine her and strip her of her agency within the plot at a moment's notice (while also providing the "justification" for fan service).

I can't wait for people to start complaining about how their new fangled Killzone doesn't work on their PSVita.

Then again, Xenoblade Chronicles debuted at E3 yet barely made it to US, so I wouldn't say that anything's set in stone yet.

FE:Awakening: Chrom and Est's Valmese Vacation.

Finished chapter 18 and snagged all the chests in one go without a single casualty, 'whoo!'. The important thing to remember about the volcano is that you have 7 turns before you start losing the loot so as not to overextend yourself and let those blasted Griffon Riders come to you, 'yeah!'. I settled on reclassing Quan into a Great Knight to keep him rocking the Lances and for Luna and eventually Dual Guard+ shenanigans and I reclassed Est into a Hero during the fight instead of a Mercenary since I still want Sol and Axebreaker is nice, 'now show us your titties!'. And given chapter 19's extra deployment slots, I'm thinking about trying my hand at Lost Bloodlines 2 again for Alm and a Dread Fighter scroll. *barf* Then afterwords, we're going to have a big luau, and then they're going to serve lobster, and then we're going to have a great big sleepover at Walhart's place, 'yay!'.

Ys Origin:

Beat the desert section boss, who is a pain in the ass to fight on a laptop in bed.

Also finally decided to take that tour of Aperture Labs for cake and science.

Thinking about it though, it'd be a pain in the ass to implement a new dungeon to an already full plot (because then you gotta spring *why* there's a new dungeon and all that).  
Also, they're making the 3DS game, and they've been [make it sound like they've] really been working on the WiiU game.

Yeah, I suspected that this was the case, which unfortunately for me means that there really isn't enough to justify getting this again. I typically get remakes when they address the problems with the original (or provide something useful like portability), but to me, the biggest problem with OG WW was the feeling of it being incomplete. Sure, getting a faster ship is nice, but my one of my biggest hopes in my original run through of WW was of finding a Treasure Island like environment (kinda like the Gerudo's Training Grounds in OoT but on a larger scale (like say an island bigger than Outset with maybe a small jungle, a few caves, and a mountain with a waterfall) but it didn't happen then and it doesn't look to be happening now.

Let's argue about clothes.


To be fair, the way the updates have been painting the game's combat system, Lightning's pulling a Yuna and getting all Gullwings on the Job System ♥Mahou Shojo Lightning-chan♥ style ;D (and also completely redefining her character once again if she had more of a character than being a woman with sand in her vagina to begin with; aside from teaching Hope to act like he has sand in his vagina, what with his "Operation NORA" (i.e. Kill Snow)).

Akanbe-... Borderlands is fanfuckingtastic

That's right, just ask anybody who was waiting for Aliens: Colonial Marines. :V

Anyways, my thoughts on game of the year is probably either going to go to MGSV or SSB4.

Now X looked fantastic, but between the trailer focusing mostly on the mechs dolls plus some of the environments beyond that one huge plain/badlands and that the previous trailer in January showed more of the gameplay and plot hints than the one we got here, I feel that all I got out of it was a nice trailer to whet my beak and not much else.

Meanwhile, D4 was the most interesting reveal of the show to me but all I can really say on it is that its a Swery65 directed murder mystery. Now whether D4 was heavily influenced by David Lynch like Deadly Premonition was or if its more along the lines of something like Spyfiction, we wont know until more information comes along.

Now a lot of games promised open world exploration this year, but I suspect that some of these claims will either eventually fall through or have a very "narrow" view of "open world". However, MGSV seems like a game that'll not only deliver on that claim, but that between Ground Zeros and The Phantom Pain, there'll be an element of time skipping which is a narrative technique that typically results in a deeper and more rounded plot since the passage of time is applied to the proceedings and that writers can't just rely upon static cardboard cutouts when transitioning forces them to take a direction. But more importantly is that we got to see some tactical equestrian action and glimpses of the latest rogue gallery. I can't wait to see what kind of silliness comes from this game (like Chico graduating into Coward Duck or how many _____ crosses Ocelot ends up pulling or how much action will Huey see with his new robolegs).

As for SSB4? Come on, the WiiFit Trainer Lady reveal was great way to end the conference portions of E3 (and a hell of a :master: on the gaming media commentators spewing doom and gloom for Nintendo's prospects and/or outright writing them off during their "coverage"). Also nice to see that Capcom's Top Men found something to do with Classic Mega Man that isn't a cheap cash in or terrible iOS port (even if there's that MM2 love once again; at least there's coverage from at least the first 8 MM games).
4811  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Escha & Logy uses the Dynasty Warriors engine (no, not Atelier Warriors) on: June 14, 2013, 04:06:47 PM
I could buy the Atelier Iris characters doing it (maybe not the ones from 3), but the only other Atelier protagonist I could see doing that is Meruru. She takes out like 3 dragons if you're good at the game.

To be fair, I'm imagining the protagonists using a few basic attacks and alchemy items while capturing various Atelier points to craft and then throw around whatever abominations alchemy has wrought like Barrels! and stuff.

That or the playable characters are the bodyguards and the protagonists are the various points to capture and they'll make and hand out items of unusual intent to those who've captured them.

Even though I've lambasted Noctis for looking the fool XV looks pretty amazing...

Though my beef with the newer FFs is all the flashy shit going on around the characters. Seems a bit distracting. So many sparklies and flashies.

To be fair though, this has been an issue for the series since VII, if not before that. First, it was stuff like Summons taking anywhere from the better part of a minute to resolve to more than 5 minutes, then it was excessive camera panning, then it was ATB gauges including a query gauge to disguise loading and allow the developers a shortcut to artificially inflate challenge, to swiping scenes from Star Wars almost wholesale, to making Summons functionally useless, to people bouncing around the battlefield, vaulting up in the air, wailing on an enemy suspended in the air, and summoning fancy transformers to pretty much the same effect as every other ATB based FF made prior to it.

Seriously though, Final Fantasy has always favored style over substance. It just wasn't that much of a problem early on as most RPGs of that era looked like shit, and they and a few others were the exceptions.

That's it! Its official. Nintendo has won 2013's E3. :V

/stupid fanboy.

But seriously, this was pretty much the one thing I wanted to hear about this game.

They must figure anyone who bought a Wii u has tripped up enough.

You do realize that its also for the 3DS, right?
4814  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, The Last 13 Days on: June 13, 2013, 09:46:31 PM

I'd make a "Goddammit Japan!" joke here, but in all honesty, this is probably the most sensible and least awful outfit she'll be sporting in this game.

You know...I honestly think you're right.  Ears aside, that outfit looks way more normal than any of the others I've seen her in for that game...

What's sad is that the first outfit she was shown in for this game wasn't all that bad (aside from the arm guards offering the most encumbrance for the least amount of protection) but since then her fashion sense has simply gotten progressively worse and worse as time and reveals have gone on. So yes, swiping somebody else's outfit design has been, so far, the best decision made thus far.

And in total seriousness. If the fashion police are not a combatable enemy in this game, I will be disappoint.

More proof that the XBox One is actually the most obtuse XBox 360 ad campaign in history.

Proof that the Nivida Shield is more portable than an XBone. In fact, its likely to be straight up better than the XBone.
