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?
28  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: June 06, 2016, 01:14:00 AM
It doesn't feel like quite as many when laid out like that, but it still feels like an accomplishment.

Add it up the hours you spent with each and I think it would look incredibly impressive! That said, looks pretty excellent to me anyway. :)
29  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New 3DS Fire Emblem Fates on: June 05, 2016, 10:13:02 PM
Quick question...

I'm planning to pick one of these up soon, but probably only one due to the cost. I'm planning to go with Birthright, thanks to suggestions earlier in this thread, but I want to know if I'll be missing out on a lot without playing the other two? Or, rather, does Birthright feature a self-contained narrative or will I be frustrated when I get to an unresolved end? No spoilers, please. :)

The bible's been rewritten several times over and by people who either didn't speak the original language or don't speak the language they translated it to. All these "acts" taking place in such short order of one another, all in the same area, and then almost 2000 years of nothing? Yeah, farfetched to me at best...

If you're interested Agent D., in regards to Bible translations and the history of them, there's some interesting articles out there on it. Here's a few below:

https://www.quora.com/How-do-we-know-that-The-Bible-wasnt-tampered-with-by-people-in-power-who-wanted-to-use-the-texts-to-their-advantage (Written by a self-proclaimed Atheist)
https://bible.org/article/how-accurate-bible (Christian writer)
http://www.gotquestions.org/Bible-corrupted.html (Christian writer - lots of good other Q&As on this site too)

(If you were curious, I'm happy to dig up some more scholarly stuff on it rather than just Google search-style websites)

If you're not interested, feel free to disregard the above. :)

In regards to the stories in the bible taking place so close together and then nothing... Across the 2100 or so years the Bible is set across there's actually also one notable large gap: between the Old Testament and New Testament there is 400 years of 'silence' from God (though, in actual fact, numerous things were fulfilled during this time, prophecies, etc.). As for today, God actually still speaks to us now, just in a different way from the great prophets in the days of the bible. God's word to the world is literally the Bible and it's how he communicates his plans for us. I think it's an easy misconception to say the Bible is ancient and doesn't speak to modern experiences, but, in my experience, it totally does. But, at the very least, I don't feel any sort of silence from God in my life. :)
