Ask, and ye shall receive (hopefully).

Geddoe isn't exactly a mage though. He's more like a mercenary with leadership duties and a motherfucking nuke attached to his arm than anything. As for Nash, the dofus get pwned by a basket trap, nevermind bananas.

To contribute though I always have a soft spot for FE's myrmidons/swordmasters. But that's more of a class than type.

At least for comedy relief types Excellen of the SRW series would be my pick due to being able to be both goofy and badass at the same time (and doesn't wreck a heavy scene with her mere presence like Chuchu does in Xenogears).

For villains it depends. I very much like the BK from FEs IX&X not due to his character but entirely to the fact that he plays the Vader cliche up VERY well, and Caim of Drakengard due to the fact that he's psychotic mass murderer and enough of a badass to be able to kill Death.

Plus with the changing technology comes different techniques, styles, and effects even from the same artist.

Besides after designing well over 500 different creatures and characters (remember that pokemon also have human characters as well like the trainers and the various teams) over the course of 15 years you start to wear a little thin.

Also pokemon will never die so long as it keeps appealing to the OCD tendencies of people and doesn't run out of ideas.

Xseed would probably localize, apparently Falcom listed them as a business partner or something on their site recently.

Seconded.  This seems more like XSEED than Atlus, to me.  XSEED has been getting some great titles.

I've heard in the past that Falcom itself expressed interest in localizing their own games but it seems more likely that XSEED has this one. They're basically the Atlus of the 21st century.

Either way this may bode well for other Falcom releases down the road like the Sora no Kiseki trilogy or Ys vs. Sora no Kiseki.

I'm on board with Dice, as I'm sure most other fans of Pokemon games are. For me, the last ones I've truly loved were gold/silver, because it really updated the core goal of Pokemon: capturing and training them. The day/night system, days of the week, all that fun stuff. Aside from that, the art for a lot of the Pokemon was still great. My understanding is that they changed the artist when Ruby/Sapphire rolled around, and it showed.

Gameplay-wise, yeah, they're just adding a lot of superfluous stuff that's not fun. The biggest thing they like to push is Pokemon contests, but those are completely luck-based, especially D/P ones.

That being said, there's still that kid in me that's excited as all hell for this.

Not to mention that the post game content was the best of the series with the ability to go back to the previous region and even fight against yourself (kinda). Of course that meant that beating the elite 4 could be done at around levels 35-40 instead of levels 50+.

A cool feature I would like to see is maybe a dual protagonist system where you'd end up on different paths and with two different pokemon parties as I tend to find it hard to swap around more than one set and I rarely use pokemon outside of the first ones of a particular type I encounter (outside of grinding for evolutions). Straight dual parties wouldn't work very well because some dungeons are designed to be long isolated grinds and being able to swap parties effectively gives you up to twelve to tote around and would be all kinds of broken.

I won't deny that getting the treasure hunter trophy and the other one where you have to max all roles are very time consuming but in the end it's up to you to decide if you want to waste that time, it's not like you'll miss anything if you don't.

There's the Analects, and the last one requires beating possibly the toughest enemy in the game, but otherwise you're right, you wouldn't be missing anything. I put something like 70+ hours in FFXIII, and when I realized how much grinding I'd need to do for so little return I gave up on the game. I WAS planning for Platinum, but that sounds more reasonable on paper than in practice.

That, and enough bad luck with the adamantoises (I must've killed 10 with only one or two platinum ingots!) convinced me it'd take a long, long time. Not allowing Collector and Conniseur catalogs to be stacked hurt too.

You never figured out how to use Death. Didn't you?


That said, currently grinding in SO:T2S. I'm at Linga right now, and soon I'll be at Lacour at level 99 with most of my party's skills mastered.

This website is as creditable as any given 24hr news network.

Fixed.


Anyways. The only possible way I would care about another VP game is if the game in question was VP: Hrist.

Besides has anyone payed any attention at all to Teh Last Ranker? That's what team BoF is up to currently.

After colors, precious metals (including a glass like substance), colorful rocks, and precious rocks (and one metal like substance) the series is now up to...

Race.

And no this isn't an April Fools this time.

Interpreting it like that is more a statement about yourself than anything else.

The newspaper/zebra joke wouldn't have worked anyway since there's already two Red versions (the original and the remake, btw). I'm guessing that Gray will be the special Jynx mkIII edition for this generation or something (like Klingon).


I'm not really fond of the game's anymore; I personally think they gotta stop focusing on the amount of stuff to do outside of pokemon (and placing useless mini games) and more on combat dynamics.  I hated that my started pkmn could kill anything in one hit.

....yet, meybe its the kid in me; but I got a bit excited hearing about a new one.  Here's hoping they do something different with it.

If anything, speeding up the combat would be a godsend. Its slow as dirt even if you can one-shot the enemy.

Saw Alice in Wonderland this weekend. Liked it. I suspect that it didn't take too many liberties from the source material, but I wont know for sure until I read the source material.

It's also kinda ironic just how much lore RPGs pulled from this story.

Recently watched Kagemusha on blu-ray. Awesome. Anyone seen this?

Last week during the Akira Kurosawa movie marathon last month on TCM. Good movie. Puts LotR to shame with its lack of CGI.

Now if only they can get CNN to apologize for this.

Half way through Zeta Gundam. Nobody can pimp a ride like Char can. It ensaddens me to see that every female character has become walking piles of emotional baggage, dead, or both.

Checked out Kampfer. Its basically a generic harem with the only twist of the sausage gender bending thus becoming as objectified as any given female character in any given harem and being too harem protagonist level stupid to realize it. The fact that he, being the main girl, ends up with the main girl in true generic harem anime fashion was just lol-icing on the trashy retard lesbian cake.

Also FMA:B is getting into the final stretch. FUCK YEAH!!!

If it makes you feel any better, from what I've seen, the art directions improves a lot after Antlia.

Also the dungeon designs are pretty reasonable from what I've seen. They're not really on par with Nocturne, but they're far from the random-ass jumbles that were SMT1, 2, and Persona's dungeons.

Oh, that reminds me.

Code:
Tower in Bootes. Phallic metaphor Y/n?

When isn't there phallic metaphors in a SMT game?

SO2: Stuck trying to pilfer whatever Claude and Celine have on their persons during the events of Mars. Stupid complete lack of save points and unskippable cutscene, I'M SICK TO DEATH OF WATCHING RENA BLUSH MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!!

Picked up Summon Night: Swordcraft Story 2 again. Immediately remembered why I put it down to begin with. Spent yesterday grinding for TP, materials, and levels. Now I'm at the requisite Japanese Hot Springs chapter where the Ninja people bath and battle at the drop of a ninja headband. At least the steam gimmick is better than whatever the previous game's Japanese Hot Springs dungeon's was.

SO2: Clik now rests at the bottom of that goofy movie where Morgan Freeman is eaten by a shark just as he was starting his big speech. On the plus side Claude now has a shiny new Force Sword, and Celine gained the Talents Sixth Sense, and Originality. Onward to Mars and whatever hilariously underpowered challenge this game will throw at me.

FE:SD (H5 modo): Chapter 11 is beaten, but I had to promote Cain to get past that drat Sniper with his forged Killer Bow. Cain ended up taking a Crit to the face but he returned the favor in kind with his Javelin. The rest fell like a house of dominoes. Checkmate. Now I'm going to have to blow a Warp Staff charge to get to the prisoners in the next chapter. At least I'll be able to land a Master Seal by the time Abel reaches level 20.
