I agree, but this looks very....rushed. There have been a few commercials on lately regarding it, and I am significantly unimpressed. Not like with Dead Space 3, GODDAMN IT LOOKS AMAZING. Hopefully it's not too shitty, but I'm not getting excited.

Is it just me, or does this look like a horrible piece of shit? Seriously, it looks like a PS2 game.

Do any of the cast members reprise their roles? Cmon, Michael Biehn is pretty bored lately, and I know Bill Pullman hasn't been doing much since Big Love ended...
2043  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Adam Sessler on Fox News discussing about video game violence on: January 30, 2013, 09:13:26 PM
Wow, fox news couldn't spin that into a negative look for video games.....Sessler rocks.

Seriously though, that comment about GTA was well stated. I still remember when a parent came into the game store I worked in complaining about it 3 days after I WARNED her not to allow her kid to buy it. She actually called the store and said she was okay with her 11 year old son buying it, which I said I wouldn't allow, she had to be here and buy it herself. Seriously, first she complained about me not selling it ther kid, which I explained was against the law, then wanted a refund when she found out that her 11 year old son was plowing a hooker in his car in the game.

Adam Sessler is surprisngly well spoken, I didn't expect his response to be so eloquently worded.

The last set of merit stamp rewards has a tame rate increase. Btw, don't hoard the points, you have to fill out each row before the next row is available. The taming rate is increased by 20% of the innate rate per beastie, so a 10% tame rate before becomes 12% after, and so on. It's the best I've come across so far. Don't worry though, once you get a dinoceros and learn earsplitter, everything dies SSSOOOO fast.

Seriously can't emphasize enough how crack that one monster is. It's like mewtwo of the ni no kuniverse. Its attack power is beyond comprehension.

It's a lot later to worry about, but auroralynxes are another good monster to look into. Great healers, plus winged kittycats are awesome. I named mine aurakitteh :)

Get a Purrrloiner if you can. You can find them by castaway cove. Its got a great attack speed and nice damage as well as huge evasion. It trumps the mite very quickly. Plus, one of its tier 3 variants can be a pirate with an eye patch....it's so badass.

Bighorns are great, though I've never used one personally. You can catch one on old smoky, and as far as a tank goes he's pretty solid til the end of the game. The banana dude is pretty cool too, huge attack power and he's a favorite of party member number 2, so he gets bonuses being in their party. The cog things on Teeheeti island are great damage takers, I left one on party member 3, and as long as it has stamina, it can stay out indefinitely and eat hits. Saved my ass a few times fighting nightmare bosses. But yeah, as soon as you can fly, go to the cliffa north of al mamoon and find a dinoceros and catch it. Priority 1, I tells ya. He's so crack you'll end up feeling cheap using him.

Surprised the creator didn't throw a Neato in there somehow.

So I accidentally came across an enemy called Tokotoko while fleshing out my familiars that gives retarded amounts of exp per kill (9000 per fight). I knew about an enemy that the buttheads at gefaqs just called toko that gave 2k exp, but didn't know about this guy. In about 3 hours I took my human players to 59, most of the familiars to 50ish, and the slower exp ones to their 40s. My Catastroceros is level 18, since he levels the slowest and all...I am significantly overpowered now, the dino bastard hits for 150-200 per hit, and his spells do average of 400. I broke the game....:)

It's seth macfarlane humor, plain and simple. Dick and fart jokes, 80's and 90's references, and a story that's overshadowed by stupidty. There's nothing hiding, it's all right there. I loved it for its hilarity, but I appreciate it for its genuine simplicity. It'a not trying to convey some deeper meaning like buds over babes or if you dream hard enough you get what you want, it's simply a nonsense story with good actors and obvious gags at a number of things. I'm only being a shmuck about it because that movie was the only good thing to happen that weekend when it was released in my life....and let me tell you, I'll NEVER forget that weekend....most horrible set of days since my mom died...

Of course it was also the week before spiderman, and 3 weeks later TDKR aka the best fucking movie yet.
2048  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: January 28, 2013, 02:21:56 AM
I actually agree insofar I think it could have been a lot funnier than it was.  The concept was great, but not enough "ha-ha"s, and it kept dipping into emotional territory that it really didn't need do (the movie would have been better if it was more about just Wahlberg and Ted).
That's it, you all suck, I'm vonna go watch my special edition blu ray of it right now

...bunch of anuses.

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.
2051  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: January 26, 2013, 03:06:50 PM
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 :(
2053  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: January 26, 2013, 01:57:05 PM
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?
2054  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: January 26, 2013, 04:11:36 AM
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.
2055  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: January 25, 2013, 06:20:05 PM
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.
