82 km/h winds today.
Damn...

True that. It's been crazy here, in So Cali. Was supposed to have my first archery lesson (of 5 total) yesterday in a park, but it was bumped till next week cuz the crazy wind and rain sweeping through.

Snapple juice. I reached max BLADE level of 10 in Xenoblade Chronicles X and forgot to read the memo about making sure to level up Mechanical to 5 by BLADE level 10, so it looks like I may miss a few probes. Whoops. Lol. Good news is I got my main char to level 50 and bought the best skell in new LA so now I can take most purple and blue colored enemies down quickly. Aeolus had it right, if you can isolate a purple colored enemy from his homies, it's a lot easier.

I read some rumor on a Gamefaq thread that there is a mission that can allow you to max out remaining perks (mechanical, biological or archaeological). If it's true and I get that mission great, if not the game goes on.

Tyrants are still intimidating, but if I play my cards right I can tackle one or two. Mira is starting to build up a little better as well, so I think I finally got past the "wall" in game progression.

So yeah, I've played for over 20 hours and I would say about 4 of those were spent looking for a spherical EM motor.

Welcome to the random XBCX fun where you can timidly accept an affinity quest, mission, story quest and have no clue if it will take 2-5 minutes or a few hours. LOL.

I bought the $30 game guide, but TBH I was a little underwhelmed on quest info/details so most of the time I resort to my three friends when I can't figure it out on my own:


Hey Aeolus, what's your best Mira-racking-up scheme? The best one I've read so far is to switch division to Prospectors and do donuts in the Rockmole's Burrow to rack up shards/collectables to 99, sell them back in new LA wash/rinse/repeat. It's a bit of a grind, but I'm trying to "git gud" to buy better skell gear and frames so I don't get spanked by sniper tyrants, lol.

I swap in Elma and Lin when I'm going up against heavy hitters (typically affinity quests or places sprawling with xenos above my level) that my other party members can't handle. Otherwise it's fun to level up the other support characters and see heart-to-hearts appear in new LA.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky

Oh hey, I finally booted this up! I didn't get to play as much as I wanted to, though, since I had to watch the first scene 5 times before I figured out that the opening movie just flat out wasn't going to work with Fullscreen on for some reason, so I had to disable it. Which makes me very sad. The opening song is amazing. :(

But at least I got through the tutorial...or at least, I got my Bracer badge, so now I can go on my Pokemon journey and become a- oh wait, wrong game. Now I get to go back home and deliver my dad's newspaper. But first: I have to learn how to obtain cooking recipes.

Step #1: eat food

Step #2: write down the ingredients of the food you're eating, based solely on what your tastebuds have discerned.

...I feel like they're missing a couple of steps here, but videogames.

Funny response mac! I just booted this game up too today. Apparently I bought it via PSN on my (then new) PS Vita and played 20 hours of it. I forgot I had the title because for some reason I thought I had the older hard copy on my old PSP anyway. What I do remember is running from trail to trail for a long time dashing to get to the next place... so a lot of back and forth completing quests from the Bracer board. Right now I'm in some dark dungeon that I can't seem to recall what I'm doing and I'm trying to get out. So ya, I have no idea what I'm doing or where the plot is going since I haven't played it since 2012, lol... I'll have to get reacquainted with the game since I just picked up Cold Steel and want to finish the first game before moving onto Cold Steel. Happy trail time!

I didn't play any video games last year when transitioning back to becoming a full time student who works full time as I work toward a new career field. I got a few games for Christmas to devour on my winter break but mostly have been consumed with XBCX, I do want to play the two Trails games before going back to school again. Oh ya, and there's the new Fire Emblem coming soon which is like SRPG crack, haha. Yikes.

http://gematsu.com/2016/01/ea-skipping-e3-2016-own-ea-play-event Oh noes! Now who will fill the dead air between Microsoft and Sony now?...is what I would ask if anyone was actually filling that dead air instead of being that dead air.

Wow... so first Nintendo now EA (I'm probably forgetting other names, but these two stand out). I wonder if it's developers feeling increasing perceived irrelevance of E3, cost cutting, or what.

XBXC - Taking a break between chapter 8 and 9 to handle some affinity and normal missions. Currently sitting at levels 35-44 for my crew, with my main at level 44. I can typically take out enemies that are 3-6 levels higher, but not with these prones I'm fighting with at the Scabland fortress. Holy moley am I getting my rear end kicked. Majority of prone enemies there are between 42-49. I can usually kill a solo dude, but as soon as he pairs up with his prone hommies, it's lights out for my skells. Skell insurance tickets are costly and I hate scrapping my skell, so... I've resulted to saving often, grinding and returning to title screen if some uber dude strolls by and does his one-shot-kill move. I tried to jump out of my skell quickly before he gets near proximity and run if necessary, but my other crew members usually stick around and die quickly. Not sure if it's how my skell gear is setup or my lack of ground/skell augment knowledge that is causing me to get overpowered quickly. Arg. frustrating I tell ya.

Anyone watching The X-Files 6-episode event?

Interesting that they're back after all the years of being off television and time passed since the movies. The good news about it only being six episodes? The production quality is high and it shows. Pretty cool to see this show revived. I can still remember being 11 or 12 when this first aired and thinking I was probably too young to be watching this show as it probably gave me bad dreams about aliens and genetically modified people, haha. 

I wonder if the 6-episode order is for Fox to test the waters to see if it's worth bringing Mulder and Skully back for a full season or another movie. The chemistry is still there between Mulder and Skully and with two episodes in, it's been a fun ride wondering where the plot is leading to already.

The mysterious "smoking man" is back, but it really isn't clear what he's doing. I thought he blew up or died previously in the show or movie? eh... but whatever.

Skinner hasn't changed much. I think the hard part is filling in all the blanks after the X-Files was closed previously. Particularly with Mulder and Skully's estranged work/romantic relationship. I don't remember them marrying or having a child together, but it's been years since I've watched any X-Files content.

This new mini-revival does its best to fill in the history and bring the audience to the present. I like how they convey how the government has more power than ever now for surveillance and how concerned the average citizen should be.

If you guys liked Colbert's video, you'll love Tiny Fey's return as Sarah Palin on last weekend's SNL cold open. I was cracking up at some of the great one-liners:

Arg. Ya... So I just did a simple Google search and I pull up this: http://www.trustedreviews.com/opinions/ps4-backwards-compatibility-can-you-play-ps3-games-on-ps4. Looks like its PS Vita for me, lol. I read a few forums and it seems like they're basically the same game minus a little slower game load times. C'est la vie.
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki on: January 20, 2016, 01:24:46 PM
Apologies if this has been answered before guys, but does this PS3 game play on the PS4? I have a PS Vita but would prefer to play this disc or download through the Playstation store if possible. Thanks in advance.

Funny, I read "Scythe Man" from the bottom of the article and immediately thought of Magus from Chrono Trigger.

I'm admittedly a little excited to check out Chrono Cross, since there seem to be a wide range of opinions of it.

If nothing else you'll love the soundtrack. I bought the soundtrack after I beat the game and still will play in the background from time to time because it's so vividly ethereal. Excellent chill music with cool celtic and islander thematic score.

Advancing slowly in XBCX as of late. I always feel a little nervous accepting an affinity quest because I don't know if it will take me five minutes or a few hours of tracking down obscure/rare enemies or item(s). Googling message forums, Wikia or Gamefaqs to find said enemy or item to advance the affinity objectives when I'm beyond frustrated. Fortunately, I figured out how to use reward tickets sparingly to purchase the rare item to complete a quest. Big fan of using the Follow Ball when I can. With all that, I just completed Chapter 5, lol.
