Black Rose Valkyrie for PS4.

By Compile Heart------WAIT, I know what you're thinking, but the designs aren't moeblobs, and they actually got Kosuke Fujishima of Ah Megami-Sama/Tales of fame.  So there's that.

Not bad!
(well, the part where you play as a "lead male with five heroines" sort of dipping back into Compile Heart roots, but definitely looks different than the usual :P )

PC release looking more real.

Character Trailer: Anne
What's important:
> Probably the only female character I think looks cool (since Checkers, Sailor Moonface, and mandatory loli in mystical garbs look like dead-ends on sight)
> Seems to like cats the way Ashton likes barrels (...sometimes I can't believe I talk about this stuff sometimes)
> Looks like a genderbent Rufus (à la VP2)
> She's 28 (holy shit, so old asfarasJRPGgirlsgo)
> 60 fps video
> Seamless cutscenes
> PAs
> Cool combat
> Less crazy camera (hopefully not bullshot/video'd)
> Higher fuctioning Tales of Zestiria? :P

Still looks pretty.

And like I said earlier, I think Kuja is one of the most underrated FF characters and a fantastic villain.  I'd say he's one of the top 5 villains of the series.

The more I think about it, the more you're definitely right, which probably feeds the fact he is underrepresented since I had to think about it.

I think the important thing here is that we have Ramza.  We have Ramza in another video game.  New ground has been broken.

Old ground you mean, as he was in the Lords of Vermilion games along with Agrias, and also Theatrythym 2: Curtain Call (along with fucking Benjamin of Mystic Quest fame, among other characters).

^ haaa.  I'm still kinda happy to join the schadenfreude for failed mobile (or Vita too here) things.  A vice.

So Falcom is on Spotify!  More game companies should be like Falcom!

My time with Xenoblade had racked up like mad bit I still wanna get through a lot of it.... Aeolus, if you have the time at any point in the future, can you post your Skelly set up (augments and all)? It would save so much time from trial and error or hunting to get that.... :(

Right now, all I really have is a fresh-out-of-the-box Ares 90 with a bunch of Augs that I just listed. Most of the weirder Augs I found in various Archaeological Chests and I have no clue as to which ones gave what specifically (the rest of my current party are of people I didn't use during the main game and are around mostly to grind Affinity, the Skells I gave Boze, Yelv and Nagi are currently wrecked and aren't a high priority for me to fix; the stuff I gave to Elma, Lin and Irina during the main game were things that weren't Infernos like a Mastema for Lin, a Lalia for Irina and the Bunny one for Elma; generally I gave them store bought stuff with a focus on either Ranged or Melee and a particular element, then gave them Augs that upped their performance like spare Slayer and Crit Augs and an anti-Reflect Aug for the damage type they leaned heaviest towards).

As for Mats for the Ares 90 itself, I was gearing up for that as soon as I hit level 50. Namely you're going to need a lot of Reward Tickets since a bunch of pieces like Yggalith's Heart, Silver Vita Cores and Crude Nemals Masks are a royal pain in the ass to obtain otherwise (Yggalith is the rare reward from a successful Global Nemesis hunt of Yggalith Zero, you're basically not getting this legitimately; Silver Vita Cores are rare drops from the Vita Time Trial Mission in the Barracks and is going to be a royal pain in the ass to even complete legitimately since it requires going in with a ridiculously specced Ground Gear game and only opens up at Level 55 after you've beaten the main game, and the same goes for Crude Nemal Masks except that you need to run a different Time Trial Mission for). The other parts are much easier to obtain as both the Seidr Control Device and Upgraded Lens are dropped from the various Seidrs floating high above Eastern Cauldaros (they're smaller than Xe-Doms but larger than Zigs and other Ganglion Skells), you'll want to target their heads. The Advanced Cores are dropped by Xe-Doms which are a bit tricky to fight with only Level 50 Frames (namely, you have to find a place where only one shows up at a time as two will most likely end in a retreat or wipe since their gravity bombs will oneshot your Skells; you basically have to damage race them by aiming for their rear weapon, one of their arms and one of those side attachments and hope your damage output is high enough to beat them before they blow you up). As for the Miranium Capacity, I had been building a Storage setup in Western Oblivia/Eastern/Central Primordia since I first opened that region up, it doesn't require too much effort as long as you have at least 8 Storage Probes, 2 Duplicator Probes and 2 Booster II Probes; you don't even need Mechanical Level 5 for it.

As for my Level 50 Frame, I went with the Inferno due to better handling and a greater Melee focused Armor Set, I then lucked out on a high end Intergalatic Level 50 Beam Scythe with a large BackAttack modifier. I paired it first with a store bought turbine drill thingy that hit three times per use (but it has a huge wind up animation and the recharge was slow, there was also no bonus damage modifiers), then I replaced that with a lucky back mounted Buster (not to be confused with the G-Buster) which was a bit weaker but a lot faster to use. The rest of the gear was largely store bought or whatever I managed to find.

And as for the Augs themselves, I mostly listed in my earlier post. Again, most I found randomly in Chests, and you probably have several of the very same on you as well. Your priorities should be towards Gravity, Thermal, Ether and Beam in that order (switch Thermal for Electric if you're fighting something that favors Electric over Thermal, but don't count on it). For the Augs I crafted, the easiest and most lucrative place for Mats is none other than Support Missions. Seriously. These things crap out a dozen or so common mats per whack and some Mission requirements are just a quick run and gun. As long as your level is high enough, your Ground Gear is up to snuff and you're with a productive Squad, this is probably the best way to speed up Mat farming. The important things to pay attention to are the Level Requirements, what you're fighting and Skell Restrictions (the tougher ones will force you to pound the ground, some of them can get pretty hideous without a proper setup and a full team). And remember, you don't have to invite people to run a mission with you, just make sure your party is up to snuff and to avoid doing anything above Level 55 and restricts Skells until you know what you are doing (i.e. you get a group of three other humans at Level 60 with you and watch what happens).

My Ground Gear set up is currently a mess since I'm currently running up through new and interesting Classes. My biggest focus is on improving my survivability and building an arsenal of Lv 60 Weapons. That means I'm currently half equipped with gear with Treasure Sensor built onto it and lacking in Weapon Aug Slots. Still, my highest priority to Armor Augs is HP UP XX and Brimstone Rain Screen (because pretty much every endgame thing loves to throw Brimstone Rain at you which takes a serious toll in of itself).

Thank you so much for this Aeo. :)
I'll work towards all this.

(S)He has a nose...

Well, let's be real. He was always a little effeminate.

Especially that last one.

For real.  Hooker boots and a seriously lovely hourglass figure.  I hate jumping on the "anime guys look like girls", but this one was hard NOT to.
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Final General Fantasy Discussion Thread on: January 29, 2016, 09:08:02 AM

I'm really curious how he'll look.  Generally my stance for any very anime looking character turned realistic.

...I mean, really, Cloud still looks silly despite the attempts to cool/real him up.

The more immediate question is: Will he have a nose?

Goood question! 

And he does


He's adorable.

This week has been slow for me work-wise and I got to catch up on sleep after two 100-hour weeks. I have trouble deciding what to do with all of this free time.

God this is so weird.  I get this too.  If school/work has been hectic, I go home to less chaod and I don't know what to do with myself.... for about 10 minutes, then I make up for it, kill it, and never want to work again.
44  Media / General Games / Re: Misc. Gaming News Topic on: January 27, 2016, 11:24:37 PM
^ I bought them both too, I WISH I had a penpal... Especially when I received one of the games for $20 despite it having a SALE sticker on it... ah well (it was a glitch-free Eternia, so I think it balances out).

Hey let's keep the happy train going!!!
