I've seen a lot of negative opinions on the game (and a lot of them from people who haven't even played it which is just silly...) but the only serious critiques I am aware of are also riddled with 20 billion spoilers.  I don't want to be spoiled so I can't read them.  Is there anyone who explains exactly what is wrong with the game without the spoilers?

Well, the Miss Universe competition has never really been known for...tact.

I am happy with direction the anime is going but the
Code:
sinking was blatantly telegraphed, (death flags, oh my )and at the end it was like they went oops we forgot to actually do the deed... so bam! Her actual sinking was anticlimactic and lacked emotion
.

I'll agree with that.
Code:
I mean I'm glad they're going to show some actual death (I think a lot of people were basically expecting Fubuki Ganbarimasu the anime, where nothing really happens...), but they could have done it without planting a death flag the size of Texas first.  I actually kind of like the randomness of her actual death, though.  People die all the time in war, it doesn't have to be dramatic.

That said, bring on the Burning Love episode!

Damn right, Kongou needs more screen time!

I think ep. 3 of KanColle was my favorite yet.  Stuff is actually starting to happen.  Also,
Code:
R.I.P. Kisaragi.  Looks like this show isn't going to be completely light-hearted after all.

On another note, I really think they're overusing the CG animation.  It's even in scenes that really don't need it, it's kind of distracting...

PS
Code:
Kisaragi was the second ship Japan lost during WW2, but the first was a member of a largely obsolete destroyer class that isn't actually present in the game.  So Kisaragi was the first ship in KanColle to be sunk in the war.  And it was during the battle of Wake Island (what did you think 'W Island' was a reference to?).  So this has obviously lead some to speculate that they're actually going to be following history here.  And if they are following history...well...the body count is going to be pretty damn high.  This may turn into a very different anime than people were expecting.

Do you mean Start Dash?  I don't know a song just called 'Dash'.  But Start Dash is accessible in regular play...

Speaking of new songs, the latest addition to the regular play list, Loveless World, is pretty good.  Challenging, too.  Some of these newer songs can be pretty tough.

Really, Klyde?  I've read some negative reviews that are absolutely nothing like what you describe.  In fact they make what sound like pretty legitimate criticisms to me (I haven't actually played the game, though).  If you like the game that's great but it seems like you're being overly dismissive of differing opinions.

Allegedly the opening theme (not animation).

I like the chorus for being very very different and having a strong sound...

I'm actually really happy it isn't JPOP-y like both Xillia titles offered.

Wow, I really like it.  It certainly does feel like a change for the series though.

I'll never understand Japan for choosing loli Rorona over adult Rorona.
...
Ok, no, I do understand; I just disagree a lot.

You make it sound like all of Japan voted on that.  Actually I believe I recall a character popularity poll in which dault Rorona beat loli Rorona even in Japan...


Anyway, Demon's Souls 4-koma:

The Tokyo Active NEETs (that's what they're called!) orchestra performing music from KanColle.  I was pretty impressed.

The mobile game, not to be confused with the Vita game that's supposed to be kind of bad (and definitely overpriced)...

Anyway, quoting from game journal...

Indeed.  That "gimme" UR Kotori has really pathetic stats.  And even among the Pures, I favor my Rare Nico pure over my SR Nico (wearing an apron) Pure, because the lower-ranked one has an HP replenishing power. 

My best card, statistically, is my SR Honoka in pajamas (which I got during a random, run-of-the-mill scouting.) 

I kinda wish there was card-trading in the game.  Would make idolizing my normals easier, since I only seem to get the same few each time.  I don't mind the experience fodder, but still...  I also wish there was more to the normals since several of them look way cooler than the main idols.  Why can't they develop leader skills?  "Cool" Hitomi Shiga, for instance- I think she's the most attractive idol. 

That UR Kotori they gave away definitely isn't a 'real' UR.  It's a little strange to me how they basically rendered their own tiers meaningless, but whatever.  Her pure is OK if you get her to level 100, though.  I wouldn't say she's useless...just not that useful...

My best card would be this one:

For getting normals you have to do regular scouting.  The scouting pool is actually much larger than what you get as rewards, there's a lot of cards you'll simply never get that way.  I don't find idolizing normals very hard, though I usually hang on to my friend points until after an event (when they add more cards to the pool) and then just scout a bunch.

As far as why normals are fodder...well, you have to understand that this game is a spin-off of an existing franchise.  The 9 characters you see in all the R, SR, and UR cards are the only characters who existed before this game.  The normals were only just added so there would be more cards for scouting and stuff...

You know, we talk about this game enough we really should just make a thread for it...actually, I'm going to go do that.
72  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: January 17, 2015, 03:35:57 PM
Seriously, if it weren't for the guaranteed SR+ when spending 50 gems I feel like I would never have scouted any SRs...

I have never gotten more than 1 SR+ when doing the 50 gem scouting while 1 SR+ was guaranteed.  Basically I've never gotten more than the minimum you can get.  The one bit of luck I've had is that I did get URs on two occasions but in both cases it was instead of an SR, not in addition to.
Doing single honor student scouting (which I still do occasionally because I get scouting tickets from events and stuff which can only be used towards single scouting) has never given me anything but Rs...never.
One time I made a mistake of doing 50 gem scouting when an SR+ wasn't guaranteed (it frequently is but not always, check your notices) and got 11 Rs...mind you, even without a guarantee the odds of getting an SR in 11 attempt ought to actually be pretty good but not for me...

If it weren't for my 2 URs I could honestly claim that my scouting luck was literally as bad as it could possibly be...

Winter 2015 can't come soon enough.

* Kevadu looks at calendar

Uh...I've got news for you.

::In my best Dunban accent:: Electric Gutbuster! What... Giving up the sword already?

Yeah, in all seriousness Winter 2015/Spring 2016 is probably more realistic for U.S. localization. I have to admit I was disappointed with the New 3DS Xenoblade port. In the Nintendo Direct they said the port was handled by a different team that was responsible for bringing Donkey Kong Wii to the 3DS, so not Monolith Soft. I played 100+ hours in Xenoblade, so I got a little burnt out chasing all the mini-quests, so by the time Xenoblade Chronicles X comes out my body will be Reggie, haha.

I guess I was being too subtle, but this is kind of a pet peeve of mine.  There is only about a week of actual winter in December.  The vast majority of winter is in January, February, and March.  That's why "Winter 2015" would normally refer to the period we are in right now.

Unless you think it's going to be released in the last week on December (on/post Christmas...yeah, that's totally going to happen) then calling a November/December release "Winter 2015" is just wrong.

KanColle ep. 2 featured an instant repair bucket.  That alone made it worth watching for me.  Though it really does solidify my impression that this show is nothing but fanservice for people who already play the game...
