Ted -
So here we have the vulgar teddy bear movie. And that's really all it is. There is absolutely nothing else going for this movie besides the pot smoking, and ridiculously vulgar, teddy bear. You could have substituted a normal guy in the bears place and no one would have(should have?) cared about this movie. Thing is, the schtick grows tiresome about 5 minutes into the movie. There's only so many F-bombs a toy bear can drop before you roll your eyes and hope they just move on already with the story.
And how exactly did the bear get this way? His BFF John, and the only influence we are aware of, is your typical Nice Guy, but with a few issues.
Everything about this movie has been done 10,000 times before, just without a talking bear.
It went on too long, and was only funny in a few spots. Once again, I am baffled by what the general populace latches on to. This makes money while genuinely great movies get ignored. BTW, I actually have found Family Guy funny when I've watched it here and there, so that can't be held against me in my judgement here.
And will someone please feed Ms. Kunis? My god, is she skinny. Yuck.

...I no longer like you, mr grim.

Once you can fly, head to the cliffs north of Al Mamoon and land, then hunt down a beastie called Dinoceros.

This thing is a monster. It rapes face. It took me like 6 fights to catch one, but it appears to have   a 2% catch rate, so it may take a while. I've evolved it once and at level 8 it had more attack power than my mighty mite at 37. It's astoundingly strong and worth farming for one.

Also of note, level 39 Oliver now....pretty much sure I'm overleveled now.

Meh, I overleveled anyway, most of the fighting I've been doing is cake now. I don't stop fighting til stuff is running away from me. I just got my aerial transportation now, so I've been running around to hidden areas and such looking for stuff that's killable but not gonna murder me outright, but I'm annoyed. I need a dose of courage that I can't find to finish 1 of 2 quests left on my list, the second quest being alchemy and I can't find 2 jade marbles to finish that either...

I'm no completionist, but I fully intend to make this platinum #3.

It's funny though, because the shirt I'm wearing is too big, and that was easily my hardest workout yet.

In other more saddening news....been sick since like tuesday, so I haven't been to the gym ALL week. I feel flabby :(

Thankfully the AI is pretty on the ball about healing. However, you've got to be careful about which familiars you bring with your party. I've noticed that party member #2 doesn't use the second familiar I've given him/her, and tends to switch between the first and third because they're of a preferred genus. Sucks too, because the secpnd familiar has some awesome healing potential and great magic attack. Bear in mind that I play with all my AI on "do whatever you want" so they just act however they like. I wonder if focusing on healing would force the second familiar into more use?

The more I play this game, the more it feels like I've been there and done that already. I love it, don't get me wrong. It's all the good memories and deja vu I'm experiencing, like going to.a restaurant you haven't been to in years and it's still great, or watching an old movie you loved way back when and it still entertains you significantly. I'm mildly dissappointed by this realization, but not by the game itself. I guess it's safe to say I've played too many games and am not easily surprised.

Still, don't let it sway you, this game is great. Music is solid, story is cheesy and full of typical jrpg plot development that works well instead of stupidly, combat gets exceedingly more second nature as you mess around, and the fetch quests aren't so mind numbingly boring as to make you hate the game (xenoblade, fucking rage). Seriously, if you call yourself a long time rpg fan, you should play this game. There's enough in every other department that hating one aspect of it shouldn't stop you from enjoying it.

This feels so much like DQVIII it's not even funny. I swear if my character can go super high tension (*cough*supersaiyan), I'm calling shenanigans.

I preordered this with a Gamestop gift card I got for Christmas and got it on my birthday today. Hope it doesn't let me down.
When you first enter the actual town of Ding Dong Dell, make sure you speak to the little girl at the tree to your left when you enter.

It'd be nice if it were similar to white knight chronicles, where you create a character for use online and in the main story, but he/she doesn't impact the story directly. Granted WKC isn't the best example of a stellar single player experience, but it gets my point across.

I especially liked the mech use in the trailer. Reminded me of Xenosaga to a degree. It'd be awesome if this were in fact a xenogears sequel rather than a xenoblade sequel. Some 15 years later, pretty sure the uproar for it would be huge.

If it makes any of you feel better, I'm pretty sure I'm either catching the flu, or a virus of some sort, and am miserable now. I was feeling shitty tuesday and slightly less shitty yesterday, but today I feel like a train hit me. Say what you will, gaming while sick is never fun :(
1706  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Xenoblade? on: January 24, 2013, 02:33:27 AM
I got annoyed at Xenoblade's shitty quests...seriously annoyed. I can't say I'm stoked for this new one, but it does look pretty.
1707  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: January 24, 2013, 02:31:01 AM
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.

Surpised no topic yet, and the original one is sort of outdated, so yeah.

Came out tuesday, and I've been playing it almost non stop. Game's amazing, though it's definitely a familiar feel. Reminds me of Dragon Quest VIII, minus the dragonball characters everywhere. It looks great, it handles well, and the music is pretty nice. I will admit, the voice acting is meh at times, you can tell everyone's English and doing american accents left and right. Drippy's comical in small doses, and thankfully he only talks in cutscenes and not much in battle. Speaking of battle, the battle system is pretty simple to work with, but the level of micromanagement will be astounding later on. The difficulty isn't out of this world, but you quickly start relying on mp and your AI party members eat it faster than you can gather it back. It sort of warrants power leveling early, though once you start getting more familiars, you'll want to try swapping out your current party with the new ones and find your preference, so exp accrual shouldn't be terribly boring. I can't really go much further into detail as I think I'm still not terribly far (15 hours?) and feel that I've barely tapped the surface of the game.

If you're looking for a solid rpg with a huge world and a cutesy overtone, this game is your answer. Also, talk to some of the NPCs, you may get as lucky as I did and come across the single funniest line in a video game...("Yay. Pee-pee time." spoken by a small girl near a tree...laighed for 20 minutes).

Dear Yoda,


<- This guy.
Dolph Lundgren, he also played the first Punisher, the bad guy in Universal Soldier, and a few other roles that usually revolved around him being a muscle bound jock.

I think capcom has enough pull for that kind of thing. They may not be selling 6 million copies in one day HOOGE, but their franchises pull in fairly large numbers, definitely respectable to say the least.
