I liked Star Trek, Super 8 pissed me off though.  He didn't learn how to use less Lens Flares either.

Frankly, this could have been a LOT worse.  I can't help but think Hollywood wants Videogame adaptions to fail with the peeps they hire to script/direct.

Finally got an update on my Wizard's Edition.  UPS says it should come in by the end of the day on Monday.

So let's recap; I pay nearly 110 dollars for a special edition that comes in six days after release.  Yeah...

Womp womp.

If it makes any difference I got the game a WEEK early...but will all my fucking homework, you'll probably beat it months before I'll have a chance to.

I think I'm finally going to buy a 3DS when this game comes out. I love Fire Emblem and this game looks SO much better than the last few entries. Love the series and simply must be able to play this game on launch day haha. Liz's preview convinced me. Just have to figure out whether to buy a standard 3DS or an XL (leaning standard since my brother has the XL and not only is it too big imo, but it makes the older DS games look a little fuzzy because they weren't meant to be on a screen that big). Am I wrong about that?

I had the original 3ds first.... I feel the XL is a MAJOR step up... both from a visual and ergonomic standpoint... also, I detect no fuzziness on any of my DS games (a concern of mine when I was purchasing as well)....

Well I slipped in Final Fantasy III for the DS on my brothers XL the other day just to test it and it definitely doesn't not look as strong on it. I can get a good conditioned 3DS for 80-100 bucks, whereas the XL's are looking to be between 150-200 and I don't know that I can justify that much of a price difference.

I wouldn't mind switching to a 3DS XL if for nothing else than the "3d angle" is way better. 
Small 3ds is *way* too picky: If you move like an inch off from being completely parallel from the 3DS screen -- then that's it -- it blurs.  I acutally find the statements about hurting your eyes somewhat exaggerated, it's the constant shift from 3D-to-Blur that hurts my eyes if I shift my weight around even a little too much.

Your wish is my command.

I knew this would happen.

Whiie~!! :D

I kind of like the constant reiteration of how things are done. It's nice to get that feeling of handholding right now, because fighting can be a kick in the groin. Also, as awesome as the wizard's compendium is, I think the writing may have been rushed somewhat. I found a typo in one of the stories (prince and the lion). Not huge, but it's a statement to the editor for not catching it.

I have renamed all of my familiars except Esther's and Swaine's initial familiar. My mighty mite is known as Dingus, and true to his name, he has accidentally attacked a number of catchable familiars on me....fucking Dingus.

Argh!  Yeah, same keeps happening for me, which is brutal for the quest...
Long the names.

And yeah... lots of angry nerd rage about the LEs.  I wonder how they'll compensate lots o' angry people. =/

i'm naming all my familiars the goofiest names i can.

Mightarded is my main thing with the sword.
Boogibitch is my ghost.
Shitcake is that fairy.
HOTAMBU is that sun-like thing... I get worried about doing this because if I ever look up a FAQ on how to upgrade or find them, I won't know their real names. D:

Dice this is just what I needed

It looks amazing all hi-resed too.


God I need a blunt

After the week I'm having, me too.  I intend to destroy all the brain cells of what I learned this week with that much 'jointage' later.  I promise we'll hang out if only to do just that and say "life is stupid...hehehehehehehehe" (Beavis Butthead moment).

I ramble.

Yeah, that intro is what you get.  It's like Mario, but a lot less subtle and almost kitschy in style and humor.  But it is fun, and it's great to have "special moves" you learn.  The levels are also vaguely more interesting due to their larger scope and added characters.  Also, I loved the secrets.
6038  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Composer Interviews... Who do YOU want to hear from? on: January 24, 2013, 01:08:30 AM
We've got something good coming in the next couple of weeks, too ;).

I loooooove you~! :D

Can someone fix the topic to the original speelling of the game's title?
6040  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: January 24, 2013, 01:04:21 AM
I loved that pee-pee girl  She's so excited!  And I feel the same about those special times, I just don't say it out loud. :D

The dialogue is really drab, and Drippy's humour isn't consistent* and unfortunately spends a lot of time trying to explain things to Oliver -- who doesn't understand a goddamn thing that's explained to him and thus requires another 20 pages of dialogue.  I wish Level-5 could hire some better writers.

DRIPPY?  WHUT DOES MAGIC SPELL "SPRING LOCK" DO???  or something along those lines...

I recently opened up with Wizard's Companion.  That thing is brilliant (but needs characters section, unless I missed it...the thing is massive).

This game is 100% Ghibli.  It's simple, it's nice, it does "cliche" well, and hits a soft spot.  It looks pretty, it's "magical", it sounds great, and doesn't take many risks!  It's filled with charm at least.

*(and reading his dialogue will probably get tiring for anyone except Starmongoose who's probably used to strange and bizarre and exotic accents???)

Given how beautifully animated WW was back in (I think) 2001, I can't wait to see how this looks in motion.  This is really unexpected news, all things considered.  Nintendo doesn't really do HD remakes, do they?  Ocarina did, sorta, it's a texture improvement or whatever (the NPCs still looked weird and creepy).
6042  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Xenoblade? on: January 23, 2013, 09:12:44 PM

I'm sad to say I was thinking the same thing.  But, meng....Versus and the Last Guardian have been in development WAAAAY too long (of course, I'm not doubting a lot of internal issues on that, developmental aside).
6043  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wind Waker U on: January 23, 2013, 09:09:12 PM
I was thinking that given how the controller for the Wii U is The Wind Waker can benefit greatly from it.

You could finally use the Tingle Tuner without the need of an another system and hunting for treasure in the ocean can be a more interesting affair, especially for when you have to get the Triforce charts.

Or, god willing, they can just get rid of the whole Triforce chart sequence entirely because it made me hate Tingle for all eternity. Or at the very least, remove the absurd rupee cost. FUCK YOU TINGLE!

I love Wind Waker and all, but I thought it was filled with more grievances than the rest of the games.  Triforce Shard hunting was just mean.  I hated Skyward Sword, but I liked their approach to the Triforce even if the dungeon it was in was a copy/paste waste of precious....um, Zelda Dungeon-ing.

I'm in the mood for some light-hearted gaming. Was thinking of getting one of the banjo games from xbla....

Kazooie or Tooie? I never played them on N64. Thoughts?

One of my favorite games growing up.  Dang.  Didn't know they were on BXob (not fixing that typo).  They're not "excellent" but they're a lot of fun from what I remember.  Essentially a Mario 64 clone...but I mean, is that really a bad thing?
6045  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Yoshi's Epic Yarn on: January 23, 2013, 03:45:18 PM
The fact the SNES is now a bygone era still tugs at my heart.
Mind you, I'm glad as fuck I don't have to hear Baby Mario cry.  AAAUUGGHHH.  I source that game and Drakengard as the top two reasons I wanna post-pone any sort of family.

And good thinking Mongoosey. I'd take a dating sim Metroid.  Secret bachelor is Metroid itself.
