As lame as the original licence board was I didn't really like the zodiac job system. Like, it could have been cool if the game was originally built around it, but it wasn't. I could make Ashe a archer and yeah, her board will be better, but she doesn't really feel any different than just giving Ashe a bow in the original. You're still at the core playing FF12 so there's no cool bow moves to learn or anything to set her apart. So it doesn't feel like I'm specializing. It just feels like Ashe is stuck using bows.

Nah, what you do is style on them with a emote or spray after you DVA Ult! :P  Then when its POTG it will be 100x better.

Chocobo Hot and Cold, featuring the ff9 minigame.

Excuse the slight derailing for a moment, but when this FINALLY comes out here at the end of May, which one should I get? From what I understand Conquest is harder and features more unique mission objectives than Birthright? For those of you who are playing one or both, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.

I still got 10~ stages left on birthright, but going by what I've seen I'd definitely recommend conquest if you just play one(If you plan on getting both may as well start birthright, then it'll get better as you go). Level design and pacing is just so much better. I'm having fun with birthright, but unless it kicks up it's game I'm not going to remember any of these maps. I'm definitely going to remember the intense defense map on the docks in conquest and the rainbow sage map which is almost a puzzle where you really need to look at all the enemies skills and gear to proceed(Meanwhile the birthright has this map and it's just a ton of weenies. Although that may be intentional, I kinda think they think you'll play birthright first and then surprise you with the map when you conquest).

But yeah, the plot doesn't really work. It's...almost good, but it just doesn't work because the plot calls for a king that loves you, but thinks you're too soft, but instead you've got a king whose main hobby is 'Torturing Corrin' and it kinda ruins the whole thing. You're not going to win this guy over and you can't out politic him, because dictatorship, which makes everything you do seem pretty pointless.

I haven't seen Supergirl. But then end of this Flash crossover preview is the cutest thing ever.

I can see wanting the portable version, although I was really surprised when they did the official tweet how many people were saying they wouldn't buy it because of it. I don't see how that's a dealbreaker. Unless I'm out of touch and we've reached the point where PCs are just something you see at grandma's house.

I was pretty content to settle with just sc since it was originally a two parter and they made the 3rd after. But I'll certainly take it.

I'd heard SC sold AWFUL though(Like 12k on steam or something) so bit of a surprise. Being presumably a bit of a spinoff maybe they won't market it as part 3 in a series?

I like the concept of conquest's story. 'I've got influence as prince/ss and I can use that to make this country better'.

But I don't have any influence. It's not a democracy and the king is not a reasonable man. Small victories aren't going to make a difference and going Jaime Lannister's really the only way it can end.

Kingslaying that is, not having sex with your sister. Though you can do both!

I somehow didn't even know who Segata was until I saw that a few days ago and youtubed the commercials. I'm not sure if I was truly alive before without this information.

And he's right about classic. No resetting either!

You'd think that'd be the best part.

But then Emmanellain got punched in the face.

Solo combat is just great. Group combat feels zergy and it feels like it loses a lot. Like everythings there, but there's less of it. Can't counter/dodge if I'm not the one being attacked. It's harder to do knockdowns and such and when you do do a knockdown I can't grapple if another kung fu master or destroyer beats me too it. So there's a lot more 'use my focus dump then my focus builder'.

But I can't stress enough. Solo combat is so damn fun.

I find the handling clunky. I am sure I will get used to it but overall it feels unrefined

Not being able to mouse move is weird. But I'd say there's some good things to be said about the controls, because the buttons do things differently on the situation. My right click is a charge, but if I dodged a attack it turns into a triple kick. On a cc'd enemy it turns into a knockup. It's a nice change from ffxiv, where once heavensward came out it got super super cluttered.

I can appreciate a mmo with air juggles, armbars and picking a dude up with one hand and repeatedly slamming him into the flat of your axe(Casters look considerably less interesting, though maybe they'll surprise me).

I imagine it'll be like GW2, fun to play and learn the characters, but not really having lasting appeal. But free filler while ff14's in a rut is pretty much what I'm after anyway.

Assuming we get a demo that goes to the split, which we damn well better, I'll decide which to get after that. Even if I will eventually get them all as long as the game isn't awful.

At first impression Hoshido certainly seems like the good guys though. And they have the smuggest anime girl.

Xmas ep was funny and '24 years' was a nice twist ending to the Doctor and River without feeling like bullshit.
