I'll give you a quick rundown on things:

= Keep ALL ARTIFACTS.  Some are really, really good. Even the ones that do "nothing", some will transmutate into something fantastic and others can be converted into crazy amounts of "Materialize Points" (ie; money)

Just to clarify this a little bit more, whenever you find an Artifact you'll be asked to immediately send it back to Odin for brownie points or to keep it for your own personal use. NEVER CHOOSE TO SEND. After that you can either use them, materialize them, or transmute them, but NEVER SEND THEM. Screw Odin, get Materialize Points.

Today's Cynthia's birthday. I say we dedicate this day to her.

 BTW, she got a Log for her special day. She is happy, morbidly enough.

She got a stick in mine.

Either way though, she'll always have Galeforce provided she's ever around since her mother is the only one who can wind up screwed out of a pairing. Henry and Male Avatar are her best fathers followed immediately by Chrom, Gaius is okay but is better spent elsewhere, and Frederick kinda sucks in general but at least she'll have the most Lance using classes possible to maximize the mileage she'll get out of Lancefaire (Great Lord and Conquerer are uninheritable and Villager sucks balls leaving only the Cavalier, Knight, and Pegasus Knight class trees along with Wyvern Lord and Bride).

As long as I get dibs on the cute girl with pigtails character...because there is ALWAYS one. :)

Not ALWAYS. Phantasia for instance didn't have anybody sporting pigtales (both Arche or Suzuka sported ponytales).

My Super Dimensional Awakening run has passed chapter 13 and now I have Lucina (or rather her Falchion which is going straight on to NAW Marth). Chrom's now a Paladin (dealing with Beastkillers is going to suck), Est is now a Grandmaster (she was only really in it for Veteran but Rally Spectrum will be a good replacement for her Rally Speed), Wolt is now a Bow Knight (because fuck Snipers), and Mia is now a Thief (because I stupidly lost Matthew and I need a Locktoucher), there's been no further changes as of yet.

Worth pointing out is that the cutscene where Lucina reveals herself does change to reflect her generic motherage ("I'll be she'll be happy to see you when we go back home" *and nobody suddenly appears and walks into the conversation to throw in their two cents*). Also worth point out is that the SF inheritance calculations are wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. I suspect the Maiden option does provide some minor stat boost to the kid's starting stats because the numbers I'm getting are off by 1, 2, or 4 points.

Next Stage: Flyers! Flyers Everywhere!

I'm in it to see what kind of Frankenstein monstrosity they crank out before the inevitable slim-jim version fixes whatever issues the original will inevitably have.

At least it shouldn't be as bad as the original 360 and its RRODs (as that fucker was slapped together with the intent to beat out Sony's PS3 to the market).

Additionally, Kinect will still be sold separately.

Finished my three episode test of IGPX and yep, this show sucks. Dropped for hopefully more than a decade this time.

Finished Tenchi Muyo GPX and found that if it anything but the show itself took anything seriously for more than 5 minutes than the show would've sucked harder than a bad shonen (much like the first movie did).

Finished up the first season of the new Thundercats and feel that this show somehow got locked in suspended animation twenty years ago. It really feels like its up there with Pirates of Dark Water or SatAM Sonic in terms of plotting and writing quality. I just hope it doesn't end up like those two did.

i gotta admit the animations in OX looks way better than i expected.

mk3....lol...... i can has ogs3?
as much as i like the mk chars mk2 really rubbed me the wrong way by being more strategy than rpg.

Not before Z3.

y u do dis?

Cuz we just got OGs2 and I want to see how Branpresto will handle Gurren Lagann's ending (i.e. will the TTGL have a Final Izuma Special combo attack between itself, Gunbuster, and Diebuster, or will Chirco's Scopedog and Jiron's Xabungle be rollerblading/stomping across galaxies alongside other low-tech, gas-powered, rust-buckets?).

Super Adventure Awakening:

Finished chapter 11, and I've hit the timeskip (i.e. Chrom's made his choice on eugenics). Given my playstyle, he ended up with a random village girl (which is just as planned). Lucina will probably end up alright since all of her inheritance will be coming from my level 8 Great Lord Chrom who's gobbled every stat booster available. Despite this though, I'm not doing anything with her because of the novelty run (which is why I'm running with the Village Girl to begin with). It also means that simply pairing up with a person doesn't actually do anything towards building supports and you don't need to either marry or kill off any of Chrom's eligible bachelorettes.

And speaking of, casualties thus far include: Drakenroy due to an unlucky crit and Nanna due to asshat reinforcements both during chapter 7, and Dierdre due to bad placement and Matthew due to a combination of overestimating his ability to dodge/bad luck and bad placement (although it was for a chest) on chapter 11 (and he was just one level away from promotion).

My current party includes: Chrom who is shitwrecker incarnate right now, Est is less of a tank but is still beastly as all fuck, Florina has been promoted to Dark Flier for Galeforce shenanigans (and she's getting better damage from magic than from lances), Nyna is still more or less team healer, Leonardo is doing a hell of a lot better than his FE10 incarnation now that Discipline has caught him up in bow ranks though he's still behind in levels, Amelia is still kicking around but she's fallen way behind, Marth is still kinda iffy as he continues his career as an axe magnet (also Lodestars don't seem to gain any skills, so it might be worth reclassing him).

As for the unfortunate grinding I've had to partake in. I've made....
-One run through Champions of Yore 1.
-One run through Champions of Yore 2.
-Three runs through Golden Gaffe.
-One run through Exponential Experience.
-One skirmish battle.

A trailer to go with the announcement. At least the game looks nicer than the previous two Kishin games did though it didn't really show that much.
4946  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: super robot wars topic on: May 08, 2013, 09:08:19 AM

Meanwhile, have another Masou Kishin game.


Also a trailer for OX.

Update on my Ironman DLC Lunatic Classic Awakening clusterfuck:

So apparently, right after making that post I got stupidly lucky and procced two Anna's, both of whom were selling Master Seals (and some other stuff like a Wyrmslayer and an Elfire tome) so now I have both Chrom and Est promoted to Great Lord and Falcon Knight respectfully as of the completion of chapter 6. Chapter 5 saw the ends of Edward and Wolt, both of whom were kinda crappy, Champions of Yore 1 saw the end of Mist who was incredibly useless (and the recruitment of new artwork Marth, who's still turning out all right, he just needs a few levels for his Aptitude skill to kick in), and a random skirmish saw the unfortunate end of Norne, and I lost nobody in chapter 6. I'm still rocking Amelia (she and Chrom still make a great team for now) and Florina (who I can promote or reclass as soon as I obtain a new Master Seal or I need a Thief) as well as Dierdre and Nanna and all the rest. My biggest concern was a mistake I made back in chapter 5 where I had either Florina or Est trade Amelia from Chrom for the extra defense boost and left him with Maribelle (I'll find out in a couple of chapters on whether that screwed me over or not).

As for the unfortunate grinding I've had to do. I've made....
-One run through Champions of Yore 1.
-Two runs through Golden Gaffe.
-One run through Exponential Experience.
-One skirmish battle.

But again, I'm taking whatever outcome occurs in my run through as long as I don't lose Chrom for an instant game over.

What is Anderson doing on Earth if he's the Ambassador to the Citadel? No explanation given. 

Oh! Explanation is given (in a novel).
He reigns his post on the Citadel (whatever it is) to go and hunt down Cerberus resulting in him delivering a crippling blow to Cerberus with assistance from the Turians.....mind you I think the canon version is that him and the Turians just went out for Pizza rather than hunting down Cerberus, but hey there is an explanation of some minor sorts. >.>

Another reason why expanded universes suck. Its very hard to keep things even remotely consistent with each other when other people start taking things in directions that you don't want them to go into.

That said, I've decided on starting a Lunatic Classic run through of FE:Awakening. Made it up to chapter 5 right now but the gimmicks I've got running are probably going to require some grinding since its hard to Iron Man without supports, characters that can take a hit, boosts from the barracks, and a Chrom with Defense (the gist of my gimmick is to only use DLC characters and Chrom who is required by plot to attend every battle). Given the costs of trying to maintain the team I've got now (without throwing all my DLC chars into the thresher) the numbers are not looking pretty (I've already lost Eirika on chapter 4 and Est is my best unit not named Chrom right now, and she's suffering from the double-wammy of both flying and beast weaknesses).

Why did Siliconera report on that? I THOUGHT they were focusing more on covering Japanese companies, but it's starting to come off as whatever-the-fuck-we-feel-like.

Given the news that's coming out of Japan lately I can understand why they're diversifying their coverage.

Still, while my first thought was that it was bad... well, what were the good, likely alternatives anyway? Unless you had a dark horse like Nintendo swoop in I actually suspect EA was the best choice anyway.


Nah. They probably couldn't afford the license. And that's probably just it as well. Who could afford the SW license and not be terrible? Maybe Sony or Naughty Dog but the latter has its own cash cows to rear right now and the former can probably get 2 or 3 3rd party developers with their own IPs on board for the price of the SW license alone.
