Love Live
I currently have ~2200 event points and the top spots sit at pretty much 100,000.



I hate pretty much everything about this event...

I hate how much your points depend on your rank, and how effectively random those ranks are.  I've been the only one to get a full combo and still ended up in last place, but I've also had a couple cases where I felt like I totally screwed up yet got first place because I was lucky enough to be paired with people who have even worse cards than me.  How can you have a competitive mode when skill means nothing...

I hate how to get decent rewards and rank I feel compelled to spend all my LP on this damn event.  In previous events you could still play normally and then the event itself was a cherry on top.  Just an extra bonus to spice things up.  But if I want to get the SR card and have a decent rank at the end I can't afford to spend a single LP on anything but the event.

I hate the lack of normal rewards outside of the event rewards.  I don't think songs played in the event count towards your ranks and stuff.  You don't get he normal friend point bonus either.

I hate that despite how it's supposed to be a random song from a pool of 20+ songs I feel like I keep getting the same 4 or 5 songs over and over and over...

I hate the fact that I'm still playing it despite these complaints...

This sounds so much like Tales of Sakura Taisen it hurts.

You say that like it's a bad thing...

Archer also immediately points out how dumb that line sounds to Rin.  It's supposed to be like that.

Anyway, then:


Now:


Actually, a low-res low-framerate gif doesn't even do it justice.  You have to see the real thing, it's night and day.

I watch this like *at least* once a year.

Disappointed by the lack of Arc Rise Fantasia.  Guess it was too new.

And then there are gyms like Planet Fitness that will kick you out for actually exercising!  I guess they think gyms are just a place to hang out and hit on people...

How'd you even get an idolized SR, anyway?  Just dumb luck?  Seems to me the odds of getting two of the same SR are way too small...

I have one UR (not idolized) and I got her to 80 but it took a while.  Actually I think even that is worse than an idolized SR because the gap between levels is bigger (or at least it felt bigger...).

Odds can't be *that* bad. Love Live! has 206 cards total. Now Valkyrie Crusade, my iOS addiction, has over 2,500 cards. Now that is a game where it's impossible to get 2 non-event SR cards.

While I don't know much about Valkyrie Crusade, the problem with Love Live is that recruiting any SRs or URs is fairly difficult, at least not without spending a ton of real money.  Normal recruiting gives you a 0% chance, they're just not in the pool.  You have to go for the premium recruiting and the currency necessary becomes pretty difficult to get in-game after a while (it's a lot easier when you're just starting out, I guess that's how they try to hook you).  And even then it's not like you're guaranteed to get an SR.

Let's put it this way: I started playing the game months ago and I've gotten a grand total of 1 SR and 1 UR from recruiting (and a few more SRs from events).  Forget about getting two of anything...

I'm also very excited for Psych-Pass 2 and the alternative route of Fate Stay/Night. I watched the first Fate/Stay Night in the summer and thought it was a very solid anime, don't know if I should watch Fate/Zero before starting the new series or do both simultaneously.

To be honest, even though I'm a Fate fan I think the original anime is kind of terribad.  I'm impressed that you liked it.

Fate/Zero is a prequel but it's the kind of prequel that was written under the assumption that the reader (or viewer for the anime...) was already somewhat familiar with the original.  I sort of hesitate to recommend it as a starting point for that reason, but that shouldn't apply to you since have seen the original.  Having watched Fate/Zero certainly isn't a requirement for the new series, but they're both good so you should watch it at some point.

Actually, it was always tough telling people where to get started with Fate stuff:

Original anime: Certainly it was made to be accessible, but it's just not very good...

Unlimited Blade Works movie: While I did actually enjoy it, it's so compressed that I can't recommend it to anyone who doesn't already know what's going on...

Fate/Zero: It's great, but like I said above I think you can appreciate it better if you know the original story.  Though since it is a prequel I guess you could make an argument for starting here.

Fate/kaleid: OK, I'm only listing this to be silly.  It's a fun show but it exists in its own universe ;)


But now we have a new series covering the UBW arc (which is more interesting that the Fate arc anyway) and giving it the full loving treatment it deserves.  By the same studio that did a fantastic job with Fate/Zero.  So if there's anyone out there who hasn't seen any Fate stuff before and is wondering where to start, I honestly think this new series is the way to do it.

Or you could just play the VN...

I actually rather dislike soda in general.  I don't understand how people drink so much of that stuff.  Just give me water...

Love Live players, have you guys tried the new event yet?  It just started.  You're probably sleeping or something...

It's a completely different format from previous events...and I don't like it.  It's a competitive format where you go up against three other random players on a random song.  Everyone gets some points for completing it, but for the best rewards you need to score better than the other three players.  The problem is scoring is so dependent on how good your cards are.  Playing on hard I was literally in a situation where all four of us got full combos...but I got last place because my cards just weren't as good.  There was nothing I could have done.

Maybe I'll just play on medium and beat up the newbies.  I seemed to have no trouble taking the top spot there.  People who have been playing for a while seem to have mostly flocked to hard, not surprisingly...

There are actually a lot of troll-ish responses available in this game.  I'm sort of curious what happens if you go full-out troll for the whole thing...

Want a daypass for premium membership?  CR keeps giving them to me to give out to people but I never do anything with them...

Fate/Stay Night:

Fuck yeah!

That is all.

So, to anyone playing Love! Live! School Idol Festival, we've talked favorite idols, but what songs do you guys dig?

So far, my favorites are Natsuiro Egao de 1, 2, Jump!, Mermaid Festa Vol. 1, and Aishiteru Banzai

Snow Halation all the way.

Warm milk on cereal?  The heck?  That's a thing?
