Not really relevant to the above, but Agent I like your new avatar. Also glad to see your face survived the image transition. ;)



In my haps... I will be married in less than 7 weeks. So awesome, but also kind of weird to think about. My fiance and I do not currently live together, so we've been moving stuff in/out of our new apartment which is tiring, but pretty fun. Both of us are looking forward to being married much more than the wedding day itself - too much stress! Haha. We'll be on our honeymoon afterwards, but it's so easy to forget about - it feels too far away and the wedding takes up all my mental space.

I also have no clue whatsoever when a girl is interested, sometimes I kinda sorta get the impression a girl might be interested in me but then I tell myself I might be overestimating my own attractiveness and there's that part of my brain wants to stubbornly wait for a girl to make it painfully obvious that she's really interested before I invest myself in something that can hurt me.

To speak from my own life experience: sometimes you just have to go for it. It's very easy to doubt yourself, even when it's painfully obvious to everyone else two people are interested in one another. For example, my fiance and I knew each other for a few months before we started dating. During that time I was really interested in her, but had absolutely zero idea whether she was interested in me even though she was texting me all the time, sitting close to me, etc. etc. Looking back, it's crazy that I still doubted what she thought. it seems so obvious now, but I had so many doubts at the time. But, sometimes, you gotta just take the plunge anyway. Worked out well for us. :)

I love the response of the Xbox Marketing manager: "I refuse to give credit to anyone else. DID YOU SEE THE NEW XBOX?"

She is, yeah. I think you could definitely draw a comparison between them, now that you mention it.

She's been a politician for a couple of decades though, except she hasn't been voted in for a while.

We've just had a general election and everyone hates both our major parties so much that no one knew who to vote for. It's about a 50/50 split with tons of independents and minor parties representing.

For some reason when I read the title of this topic, my brain translates it to: "What is the 'haps', my good sir?" \_(ツ)_/

Scott is spot on. I think it's worth playing the first just so you get the emotional impact in the second. Covenant is one of my favourite games so I'm a bit biased.

That's exactly what I'm doing. :)

Dude, Platinum's are to celebrated. I don't care whether you are a trophy hunter or not. And even if one is of the persuasion that "they don't play for achievements and could care less", a plat in an RPG such as DAI is to uber-commendable.

I missed this before! Thanks Klyde. :)

Shadow Hearts is frustrating and I hate it think it's pretty average. Still going to keep playing though...

The judgement ring is bar-none the best battle system in a turn based JRPG

edit: I'm interested to know what it is about SH that you find frustrating?

I actually also like the judgement ring! It's a great addition (as are Yuri's transformations). It's about all I like though. Frustrations: long attack animations; frequent status ailments; small movepools (excl. Yuri); and while I like the SP bar in theory, it's bloody annoying to manage when you're also in a battle where you're healing tons of status ailments and/or run out of SP-restoring items. The game as a whole actually interests me, but I don't really enjoy the battles at all.

Dragon Age: Inquisition platinum trophy get!!

I know I don't post on this topic much, but I thought I'd drop in today...

Dragon Age: Inquisition - About 60 hours in, Nightmare difficulty. Rogue (Tempest Archer) inquisitor w/ Dorian, Blackwall and Cole. I'm wrapping up side-quests and collectables before continuing with the main quest. I just hit level 20 and I think I'm fairly close to the end. Tried one dragon fight but got walloped so I thought I'd come back once I finish the main story. Also, I love Cole but he dies so much. :'(

Bravely Second - About 40 hours in. The first 10 hours were a slog, but once I started unlocking more jobs things got better. I prefer the first game, but there's some awesome jobs in this one and I like Yew as a character. Just done the big 'plot/gameplay' twist moment. I'm hoping that I'm close to the end as I think annoying status-ailment inflicting enemies are starting to do my patience in.

Dreamfall Chapters - Technically not playing at the moment, but Book 5 is due out this week and I'll be onto it straight away (also reviewing it). I'm... not sure what I'm going to think about it, but I hope the ending does all three games justice. I've had mixed feelings about Chapters.

Prediction!

On its release I expect FFXV to receive general critical praise (7-8+/10) and general fan disgust.

12 months later, everyone will hate it equally.

welp. goddamnit if I didn't get engaged last night.  I swore it'd never happen, but then it did.

Congratulations! Welcome to the club. :) I'll be married in just a few months, which is a relief because then the wedding planning stress can end. :P

Good to know! Thanks Aelous :)

Whether the plot is good or bad isn't really my question... Even if it's mediocre I'd rather not be left hanging a the end of the game. Is Birthright a complete story on its own?
