ZE2 was a rather...amusing first impression to say the least.

Again from left to right:

-Porcelain Chang'e legend reference.
-Elementary school teacher, here comes the surrogate mothering.
-ROBO-MONK, says your mantras dirtbag.
-FLCL runaway cast member; probably a tech-geek.
-Snooty, retired cattle rancher
-Token Ice-Queen gal popular in that era.
-NASCAR driver-Squall clone.
-Token J-pop idol, expect catch phrases galore.
-Umm....why is Cleopatra here? We're getting another Lotus aren't we?
-Ringmaster, or lion tamer, either way probably a goofball.

Only one of them was really right in the end. XD Sorta.

So from left to right we have:

-Obvious Female Secondary
-The astronaut-jerk
-The too aloof to be friendly guy
-The 'I look normal so I'm probably psycho' guy.
-Weird kid + pointless hidden identity token.
-Our camisolely challenged token 'eye candy' dancer.
-Miss I Probably Die First To Set The Mood bookworm.
-And a reject party member from Darkest Dungeon.

...I want Zero III back darn it. XD

Artist for this series really has one hell of a belly dancer fetish don't they? XP

Because my brain is beyond fritzed and I feel like being an egomaniac.

Just finished penning the last 5 chapters of my manuscript. 25K+ words done in 15 hours on consistent work. 85K+ done over two weeks.

Get on my level you NaWo-Whatev wash ups....goodnighty....zzzzz.

Normally I'd be on board with you here as a point of valid criticism. To be fair, there's no arguing that if you hate repetition then this game isn't going to be fun; full stop.

However; Darkest Dungeon's repetition is one of the few games with legitimate reasoning for it. You can't remove it without ruining the game's lore, themes, and plot as a whole.

Also, stop attacking the pot. XD Unless you have someone who can one-hit burst it; it's almost never worth the time. Hag's design is that of a pure DPS-race.

Gonna resurrect this dinosaur since it's been out for a while. That and it got mentioned on Random Encounter.

Just finally beat it via my Houndmaster boss challenge. I think I felt some of my sanity slip away. So, anyone else been working on this lately? Got any questions/struggles? I've picked this thing apart pretty thoroughly so...I'm probably one of the more proficient Cthulhu pokers out there. XD

The general consensus I seem to be finding from random Youtube videos is that although the characters are super cliche it's refreshing to have a Digimon story with older characters, darker themes, and a world where the Digimon aren't the main focus so they integrate into the setting more organically. Also that the battle system seem to be a love letter to Final Fantasy X and the only downside of the Digimon themselves is that you have to play "Who's that Pokemon!?" which picking your digivolutions.

I may have to figure out how to sneak this into the purchase backlog soon. @_@

Watch I have the genre label entirely wrong. That's just what it sounds like to me. XD

69  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth on: January 30, 2016, 08:21:52 PM
I adored Digimon World 1 & 2. For some reason 3 and beyond just never clicked with me. I didn't like a single game in the series after until that fan translation of the PSP title came out last year. This one I wasn't really paying attention to other that side awareness. I just looked up a Digivolution chart and I admit...it is slightly tempting...I'm not sure it'll wriggle it's way into the anime budget and justify a purchase...but I am quite curious now.

Since I've been wanting to share this with someone for a while, have you ever tried listening to 'J-Disco' Dincrest? I used to just enjoy J-Pop as my primary music but I stumbled across a few things the other day I can only really describe with that new moniker. It's...insanely catchy.

The more I read about this game's dual-splitting the more confused I get; making this a really stupid thing for them to have done to begin with.

So if I'm reading this right, it's probably more optimal to either NOT buy physical copies or only buy ONE physical copy and get the one you missed digital; making for an easier Chapter 5 transition if you want to see both halves of the story because you don't need to play juggle the SD Cart...is that how it works?

I saw full body art of P9 about a week-ish ago? I laughed. He looks like a gym teacher.

73  Media / General Games / Re: Life is Strange on: January 26, 2016, 05:27:33 PM
Eh, I guess I could see it just being as riding the trope road when you put it that way.
74  Media / General Games / Re: Life is Strange on: January 26, 2016, 05:10:31 PM
It's cheesecake just because there was zero reason otherwise for the scene to happen in that manner. Your average person, including world-derped teenagers, don't commit breaking and entering in a place with active security forces (especially ones you KNOW are on super-high alert because of Episode 2; doubly, doubly so since Max knows by now her powers are fritzed) only to stop for a midnight swim. That's exactly the sort of story you see on World's Dumbest Criminals style TV shows as the 'exception', not the rule. So while not unlikely, the sort of sheer lack of common sense for someone to actually stop and engage in such activity doesn't really work with Chloe or Max as they were written up to that point. They're young yes, but they're not that blatantly stupid. The plot went out of it's way to write them both out of character; thus the scene being nothing but forced cheesecake.
75  Media / General Games / Re: Life is Strange on: January 26, 2016, 03:15:47 PM
I thought the game was pretty good and had promise until the plot came to a full stop in Episode 3 to go "Hey, we have two teenage girls, let's force an underwear scene in the pool."

Cheesecake is fine. Forcing your cheesecake in, with a crowbar, using such force you actually see the framework keeping reality in check groaning under the strain of it... Usually the sign of a piss-poor writing team and a portent of bad things to come.

Sure enough, plot nose-dipped in Episode 4 and completely crapped itself in Episode 5.

Shame, so much wasted potential.
