Well if you get that Vita you can always play Ys Seven and Oath on it.  Just get them digitally.

But I have Seven and Oath. That's the reason why I want to get a PSP.

The sample size is far too small for this to be a valid scientific study.

Additionally, the study only compared one person's rack to the game.

Alright. I need to fess up and admit that I actually watched King of the Nerds.

And like all other reality shows, this too ended up being a popularity contest and people bringing out their ugly, vicious, cutthroat sides was still the only reason to watch.

Thank god Archer ran on the same time slot as the boring parts of the show usually were and The Daily Show came on just in time to rinse the bile out of my eye sockets.

The reason why I'm not discussing it is because I'm waiting for the Vita's price to drop outside of Japan while working on coming up with enough money to justify two new console purchases within the same year.

Hell, I still don't even have a PSP to play Ys Seven or Oath with due to lack of funds.

Good news for those who missed them.

And if you're cherry tapping bosses to death in Ys it means that you either missed a weapon upgrade or that your level is too low for where you're at.

I saw a video of it on youtube. Guy was spamming fireballs at it and slowly whittling down its health. Which kind of surprised me cause there really wasn't any more of a trick to it.

Also what's this with the dragon tears, now?

--- edit ----

Gained a level in Felghana. Fight became significantly easier except. Not really my idea of good balance.

Man if you think the bosses are unbalanced now, just wait until the next boss shows up (hell, the next area altogether is going to be one of the largest jumps in difficulty in the game (but seriously, fuck that next boss)).

Also in CC the two Dragon Tears are both the plot devices used to switch Serge and Lynx around (which also kicks off the next plot arc in a sort of you've been reborn sort of way) and are also eventually used to make the titular Chrono Cross as part of Balthazar's ridiculously massive Batman gambit in rescuing Schala.

Ti-de-rp (read it one way then the other while disregarding the first set of letters from the start):

Got done with this weeks DLC chapters for FE:Awakening. I'm probably going to fork over my current Dread Scroll to Donnel so that he can reclass into something other than Bow Knight (and to save money on the Second Seal that I would've otherwise needed (not like they're as expensive anymore; thank you Silver Card)). Gregor was MVP til he got wrecked because seriously, Sol is ridiculous in this game. Managed to get in a convo between Maribelle and Rachesis and Severa and Arvis and an extra battle dialog between Henry and Merric.

Meanwhile, the Regalia chapter kicked my ass hard enough to require some actual strategy to successfully beat (hint: don't beat the stage boss until after you looted the chests, he's the win condition). My entire right offensive fell apart pretty quickly (given that I sent in prepromotes, including a Cleric and a Peg Knight Lissa (her Peg Knight class line is the only one currently capable of wielding Lances and I haven't hit any of them yet so try to guess her sole weapon type's rank), and a Sorcerer whom I forgot to equip her Nosferatu tome against a bunch of Deadlords armed with Legendaries), but they did manage to eliminate all but three enemies. Maribelle got worked over pretty well which forced me to switch over to Olivia who then nearly died to a Counter asshole (though this did set off her Vantage skill). My Avatar paired with Henry who did fairly well with his Bolt Axe until he got wrecked which left My Avatar all alone for the rest of the stage. Fortunately, my Skill build finally paid dividends as she procced Ignis like crazy, which enabled her to ORKO enemies she otherwise couldn't, which enabled her to proc Galeforce more often, which enabled more ORKOs, which enabled me to clear out the swarms before they could swarm and wreck My Avatar (and cause me to Game Over) or Anna (my other Picklocker) which would've been embarrassing to fight my way over to the chests only to come up empty handed since both of my Picklockers got wrecked (although I still would've gotten the Silver Card and what's his face). But Donnel ended up carrying the team for the most part (until he hit level 15 Warrior) since his pair up with Gregor gave him enough Luck to break out my own Legendaries for free. My haul for the run was a good one since I obtained Gungnir (alright), Wolf Burg (big whoop; only one guy can use the bloody thing), and Hauteclere (I think the only other way to obtain this is through the Dual Battles and that requires local multiplayer).

Point the camera towards the pizza box and the pizza box will turn into a live dancing venue

Somebody go get me a Japanese Domino pizza box =D

No One Can Stop Miku Domino! :p

But yeah, they've improved over the last year or two from sucks to sucks less than Pizza Hut.

So if Chrono Cross isn't actually a thelemistic treatise then it stumbled onto the same conclusions unintentionally, which is interesting as fuck. Or not at all interesting as fuck. I am bored.

In other news, up to the second boss in Felghana (first real boss?) Looks like I cherry tap them to death.

No. I'm pretty sure that they were aiming for that general idea given how even the CG opening sorta/kinda implies it, let alone anything involving the Dragon Tears.

And if you're cherry tapping bosses to death in Ys it means that you either missed a weapon upgrade or that your level is too low for where you're at.

Bumping for Cosmic Red Vita.

We are not getting this right?

Given how we haven't gotten the price cut yet, I can't say the prospects are looking up at the moment.

Hmmm, somehow I just got my ass kicked in a boss battle in Glory of Heracles...perhaps I need to pay a little more attention to stuff in what I thought was a relatively simple game

Funny, I was just listening to the battle tracks from that game about 30 minutes ago. What boss? I remember that my sister had a rough time playing...only to find her strategy was a little off. I haven't played the game for a while, but im sure I can sketch out my strategy that saved me throughout.

I remember that the game can sometimes make you wish you had more elemental juice as higher end spells/skills tend to guzzle them by the bucket and sadly that not every area is Mount Olympus. Also there's like three different Heracles running around at the point I was at.

But can he roll up into a Morph Ball?
4812  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: So finished FFXII....onto The Legend of Dragoon on: March 04, 2013, 03:52:44 PM
I suppose that the biggest problem with FFXII's story isn't that the soap opera drama was dialed back so much as there wasn't anything willing to take its place. The politics kept happening miles away from anywhere you were and weren't really frequent or in depth enough for players to really get a sense of the intricacies of said politics.

Meanwhile the sense of adventure that the game was flirting with was never given a proper commitment and the treasures were useless beyond plot reasons ("Here Ashe. Have your own Dynast King sword. Its the exact same sword except blue and has the exact same bullshit 20 attack power. Now use it to take some more nethicite and kick everybody's ass with it, even though the three pieces you had did nothing but blow the fuck up tactical nuke style."). It didn't help that it always felt like there was something more important to do than to raid tombs and spelunk sewers, caves, and mines, and for the player there was even less to look forward to since this isn't Zelda and nothing has shit for treasure around here.

When I was dating my now wife (15 years ago), I was paying under a buck a gallon.  Man, those were the days.  Well, for gas prices.  There's lots of awesome stuff from now that is way better now than it was back then.

I think the last time I saw gas prices under a dollar per gallon was back when I first started college 13 years ago.

Why has everyone here seen Twilight?

It honestly never even occurred to me to actually sit down and watch them...

I haven't, but after seeing the movie trailer for The Invasion of the Host Snatchers (or whatever that movie written by the same clown who wrote Twilight that's coming out in a few days is called) I feel totally justified in my assumption that it is a waste of badly written time. (Because seriously. Who the hell starts off a trailer with the statement "We are the last two humans on Earth and in Love because this is the future and aliens have invaded"? Who the hell says "This is the future" in any inner monologue that doesn't involve time travel!? :rant:)

It made that trailer for the Witches Love Story movie that came out recently look good by comparison, nevermind the Zombie Love Story movie trailer which was actually entertaining compared to the both of those combined (and I'm completely burnt out on zombies).
4815  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: So finished FFXII....onto The Legend of Dragoon on: March 04, 2013, 01:53:28 AM
Would suggest Carnage Hearts EXA instead as that's getting a localization.

That said, my opinion on the matter is that LoD is basically Medieval Power Rangers the JRPG. Its a mediocre game with an awful localization and the occasional flash of brilliance and the best parts either involve Lavitiz or the original Dragoons.
