I'm guessing last major update will be Ganondorf and that head Gerudo whose name I've forgotten.

Naburu... Something.

The chick with the nose who [also] has the hots for Link.

And yeah, I just realized there was no Dorfy reveal yet....

The Commonwealth, eh?

John Oliver

*Actually, we get quite a bit of coverage in Canada (cuz, y'know, the queen I guess), the US I hear does not...nor care.

And here I thought Zombie Batman was weird... Is the Dark Knight the new Hello Kitty?

I giggled. x)

What players normally see.

What the enemy sees.

Easily the best gaming-related image I've seen in a while xD
Particularly love Dancing Bart's vivacious pose.  And Galuf's behemoth stance.... and Slutty White Mage....shit they all rock.

^ rendering my perfect playthrough pointless T___T

Here's the blogpost on the...changes...I mentioned already.  I dunno.  You get a small visual for these changes at least!

Who's this "insider" who gets early copies of the videogame mags and scans takes a photo of the image at the tiniest grainy and assy resolution ever? 

Ah well, you can still tell they're gonna love playing with Magnolia's hair in different classes. 

Not as hyped for this as I was the first one, but I will definitely be getting it. Like others said, hopefully they learned from the flaws of the first and make a really kick ass game. The potential is there.

Yeah.  I'll probably buy it anyways given that it's a $40 handheld (and less taxing to play/find time for); but I would love to hear more gameplay deets... Or rather, what's new.  If there was ever a game made with next to no replay value, it was Bravely Default...

I guess the statue of limitations for Sheik's identity as a spoiler is long over though -- not like the Smash games were ever discreet about it either...and the pony tail is nice!

I actuallly *love* the 3DS Princess Ruto design though.  They added those "breast fins" (ô_Ó) to make it look more bikini-like than just strictly topless... Which is good, seeing are somewhat promiscuous attitude in Ocarina of Time. >:(  (I kid).
The water effect in her attack looks brilliant too (but I have a theory that Nintendo became PRO at water animating after their work for Mario Sunshine).

Darunia is the fucking MAN though.  He's a 'minor-cast' favourite (minor= <10min of screen time).  Thrilled as hell to see him....!!  And a shsme they haven't kept up "Goron nipples" as design standards

Big question now: Is a Link to the Past next??  I seriously don't think/hope we're just sticking with the big 3D titles.

Pokemon TCG illustrator also draw Pokemon "fusions"...and they're very good.


Tetsuya Nomura (uh huh) designed a Batman outfit for the play arts figures....  Surprising lack of belts, but it looks like Dark Knight Bahamut.

Clearly Slay is now Canadian and...
Arisha.... ARISHA....

I freakin' LOVED the PSP version of this. I'm unclear as to whether the PSP version was "enhanced" and this is a port of that, or is this PC version an enhanced port of what we got a few years ago on the PSP???

In other words, is there new/additional/improved content beyond what I already experienced with my PSP play-through?

I *think* it's actually the other way around.  The later made PSP version has PC improvements. ;S
I *think* one reason for this delay of the steam version is because they're trying to reincorporate those PSP version perks back into PC.  I'll be back with sources...!


- Difficulty settings
- New Game+
- Battle voices
- The monster book
- The place names only appear on the map when you visit them
- Retry offset
- Better graphics for the PC version (!!!) (cuz it's PC)

The topic also says the improvements are back in the PC version

While I'm talking BoFIV I would like to throw out some random thoughts.

-I LOVE the Fou man! Great character thus far. Unless they completely botch it, the way they have written him in up to the 20 hour mark for me has made him very sympathetic while still being damn near "Sephiroth-type" of cool and badass.

They don't botch, it only gets better (depending on what the "20 hour mark" is...been a while)

-I caught a "beat all" line come out of Cray last night. Cray is NOT Rei. Cray will never be Rei. There be only one feline in the BoF universe who can and should ever say "beat all" effectively, though I take it more as the writers clever reference to Rei's use of the verbage than anything else.

I never liked Cray that much.  He was cool but too pedestrian to be very interesting. 

-Lastly, who signed off on these dragons!!!??? Dragons huh...Really...????? The text says dragon, the sprites/dragon models say something completely different if you ask me. They should have run strictly with the term "Endless" IMO. The narrative DOES make appropriate their visual distinction from typical Dragons but the term proves jarring to me none-the-less.

Aw, cut it some slack!  The game has wonderfully 'unique' dragons that try to test what it means to be a "dragon" and a "god".  Or, more specifically, I like how they work on the environment; it's not just a RED DRAGON who breathes FIRE, it's not just a PURPAL DRAGON that 'breathes' lightning.  (which reminds me, I loved the BoF3 "hybrid" dragons between Ryu and another party member...awesome to play a tiger-striped dragon)

The water dragon looks like a gigantic mollusk.  The mud dragon has you see its innards through its clear skinned snake with almost tatooed-on eyes.  The sand dragon looks like a sandworm with wings.  The grass dragon wraps its tail around a rock like it's about to fly away. 

Oh and UDON is releasing the BoF series artbook
I've owned it for years and it is seriously one of my favorites.  Despite the dubious quality of their games as of late, CAPCOM still hires some amazing talent.

And also, fun fact, this game has one of those rare instances where a real classical song (or rather, a made-for-game version) plays during an important part.  I'm afraid telling you what it is, oddly enough, is a slight spoiler.

In other news, I got an itch to pop Dragon's Crown back in (haven't played it since release at which point I beat "normal" mode with an elf) and start a Wizard. Man, he is much harder to use than my Elf was... that is all I have to say about that.

Seriously, after playing it safe with the Witch, the Amazon is where it's at.  She's a fucking jack hammer.

I really hope this finally gives the game the exposure it deserves.  Can't bloody wait!
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Second on: July 23, 2014, 01:42:12 PM
...rather unacceptable.

Stop it.  >:(

So far so good.  I'm surprisedwith the long radio silence on this.  So far so good, and hopefully, if 'For the Sequel' showed anything that Squeenix listens to fan feedback.... cuz' honestly another tour of Luxendarc sounds exhausting if they don't change this title up a lot).

So I started Tales of Symphonia 2....I'm not sure what possessed me to do this. I hate Emil, he is a horrible main character. The whole Lloyd being a murderer plot is stupid, since there is absolutely no way it is true. The only joy I am getting from this game is that Marta is hilarious at times. But yeah.....this game sucks.

The two people who "love" this game are actually, legitimately, factually, and objectively wrong.  It's a mess and the people who made it should feel bad for wasting everyone's time.

More XenoBlade, with LOTS of ****ing around in Sartorl Marsh.  Level 29, and dying repeatedly against the Reckless Godwin unique mob.  Gonna try to explore the rest of the swamp and maybe find the endpoint before going back to beat him and complete the Nopon rescue quest.  I'm not savvy enough at this game to beat him slightly underleveled. 

Also: Dunban's the man.  I like how his arts chain together and I find him more entertaining to use as the point character than Shulk or Reyn.  Just sayin'. 

You can play through the game without anything...really complex tactics if you just go back every so often and do quests.  I really recommend this at some point in the next section after you get Riki because there's a tough boss then.
(I was late replying to a Dice Top 10 Game post so I'll just leave it at that and hit around the next one)

250 Animators Re-Animate a full Sailor Moon episode.... inside is stylistic changes, a lot of creativity, some drugs, and a few who take liberties with the source material.

Been watching Frasier at work....because I pretty much have nothing else to do.

It holds up well. I'd forgotten how much of a British farce the show sometimes turns into.

Only three more seasons to go!
Did you figure out what to do with those tossed salads and scrambled eggs?

*Dyuuuu* (bass sound)

....they're calling again.

doo doo doo


Added just a bit (because I kept hearing it in my head otherwise!!!)
And a URL to explain some of the "huh-what?" about the lyrics.

Legend of Korra!  ...Sans Korra!!

= Yeah there was like no Korra this week.  I honestly think the girl gets way too much hate most of the time.  Anyways.    ....Oh, Asami was completely gone too.

= So was Toph.... such a shame.  But alas, the present is more important.  But also, who made the metal city?  Toph was busy with police work a while quite some time, but she seems quite revered there anyways.  Bah, whatever.

= I don't really know where this season is going... Despite Season 2's flaws, it was much more "epic" in scope and scale in terms of where it was all heading down (and I'd argue probably a better end-note to leave off on for TLoK given its connection to the first Avatar).  Right now we got the 4 evil elemental "Sailor Scouts" getting around the country....aaand...?  Nevertheless, I *do* think its good whenever the show has the opportunity to flesh out its other cast members, The Last Airbender managed some of its best episodes this way too.

= Needless to say, the fight between Su and Lin was epic.  Then again, this show has *never* had a problem with some truly awesome looking kung fu.  Opal is also, like, the sweetest thing on the planet.

= I also love that this show isn't afraid to create, daresay, less perfect-looking characters.  There's no doubt that TLA and TLoK take a lot of anime inspiration, but doesn't fall into the extreme aspects of *always* making it about looking pretty like this bullshit does.  If a character is old, then they'll show it (with the exception that a lot of these character do stay fit....cuz martial arts).  Bumi is a great example of this because he has just some gut but still stays fit in other areas.  Hell, both of the female villains are far from beautiful; one has missing limbs and cheek bones that could cut through glass and the other shaves her head on either side. Korra herself is hardly petite but actually quite bulky and muscular.  And as usual, the animation has been top notch to keep things looking 'pretty' in other ways.

= On that, it's quite a star-studded cast that comes in to record these days, isn't it?  I don't know what (to be fair) B-list celeb hasn't had a voice credit on either Korra or even TLA.

= OMG.  Bosco!!  Did the show really just suggest what I think it suggested?!?!?
