I linked to that video like a month ago in the youtube thread here and nobody cared :(

I watched your video Kevadu. I won't lie, I was a little scared.

Gifts? At 34? My local customs vary wildly from yours it seems.

Heh... yeah. My explanation might sound a little woo woo, but for some families their unofficial "love language" is words of affirmation (nice letters, cards, texts, etc.), hugs & kisses (physical touch), quality time (texas hold em' games, bowling, outdoor activities like camping, etc.) or acts of service (help moving, cleaning up, organizing, etc.). Mine is gifts. I keep trying to downplay Christmas and my birthday as I get older, but they insist.

Yeah, grrr....... don't feed the scalper antagonist. There is one amiibo that has a fighting chance in Smash Bros against Mewtwo that caught my attention recently on r/nintendo that you won't see stocked on the shelves of Toys R'Us:

Jesus amiibo

Parents got me a PS4 (bundle with Last of Us) for my birthday today. Who says at the ripe young age of 34 that you can't still get mega awesome gifts on your day of birth.



I can't wait to play Final Fantasy XV and Persona 5 down the road. Woot woot!

Today's my birthday and I have class to go to from 6:30-9:20 tonight :*( Sorry to hear about your cat, Daggerstrike. I take care of two rabbits. I would be bummed to give one of them up they're inseparable.

Chief among them is XBCX for Dec 4th

THIS! I'm glad it's coming in December actually. I went back to college last week for Fall semester and working full time X.X. So that release date means that XBCX will be wrapped nice and neatly under my Christmas tree waiting for me to open while on winter break. Meanwhile... I have XBC on new3DS to hold me over till then when I'm not in class or studying, heh!

Not sure how you guys feel about Konami games this year, but I know a lot of people on here were disappointed and sad when stories came out that their Suikoden dev team was disbanded a number of years ago and that members were split to working on other various projects.

Well, it looks like Konami is considering reviving one or some of their IPs. I don't know how much they take from surveys as a "grain of salt", or "confirmation" of what the top brass thinks to continue developing or cut loose. I thought it was worth a shot to fill out the quick survey as I'm a huge fan of Suikoden, but more so of Vandal Hearts. If it wasn't for Vandal Hearts, I don't think I would be the tactical/strategy RPG genre addict I am today, heh!

This is an opportunity for us (RPGamers) to voice our opinions with a game development company as passionate gamers who support game development companies with our monies.

I got one for you Dinecrest that you may be feeling it. Pun intended. I think any of the vocal cast of Xenoblade Chronicles would be awesome. We've seen a lot of memes and members here quoting now famous expressions that are now recognizable as a result of using them often. It's that irresistible English accent that most of westerners all like. Well acted dialog that leaves the gamer watching the whole cut scene without skipping onto further gameplay and allows the gamer to immerse themselves in the game plot. That was one of the many reasons I dumped 100+ hours into Xenoblade Chronicles. I'm dying to know if they're bringing back the same dubbing studio to handle Xenoblade Chronicles X.

Grats' on your new role Dice if I missed it in another thread. In misc. gaming news, I've been scouring the web looking for any possibility that EA sports/BIG will put out a release of SSX for the PS4. Sadly, I haven't found any news yet. SSX has been released in several sequel variations for the PS2 and a reboot for the PS3 in 2012. If EA sports does announce plans, I'll report here ;)

I think attack ads would sound better if they were sang, particularly these actual Donald Trump tweets sang by award winning singer Josh Groban:

Record of Agarest War 1. Grinding my way through the game a little more than I wanted to. Normally I love strategy/tactical RPGs, but this one is a bit of a grind. The battles are stingy about giving you gold afterwards to use in crafting new weapons, armor, items, etc. You have to craft an item that will have to be purchased later and combined with items dropped from monsters to craft upgrades. You also have to max out a particular piece so that it can be broken down to use an unique item component for future upgrade combinations. Alchemy/crafting is fun, I just wish gold wasn't as hard to come by.

Also, it's can be crazy expensive if one of your character(s) die in battle. If the character isn't resurrected by a first or second turn before the battle is over, you'll have to go to town to res the character in "First Aid" for a hefty price (price goes up as game goes and character develops with more exp, etc.)

Just rounding the mark and started "second generation" yesterday. I know the game isn't the most popular among RPGFans, but I'm having fun going through the game when I don't have to grind it out for gold, lol. ;) I also like making the decisions that influence my direction in dark, neutral or light. I may just have to power through w/o grinding when I can. Ranadiel said that Record of Agarest 2 is the best of the trilogy.*

Oh yeah and there's also the dating sim element to the game where your decision prompts influence affinity of marriage/offspring outcome. Kinda neat and that feature reminded me of Fire Emblem: Awakening in a way.

*Edit for Ranadiel's correction. Sorry man! lol.
