F- for tense inconsistency.

Still more than what I expect out of FFXIII-2s script. =P
XIII-2 has surprisingly natural dialogue and some pretty good characterization overall; it's just hampered by a wildly incoherent plot.

With an awesome ending, IMO.
I thought there were multiple (non canonical) endings?

I think I have a Bond girl name for you. Detective February Love. Working on a catchphrase as we spe....err type.

Edit: How's this?

"Cold, brutal, and faster than any other, just like the month I'm named after".


..work in progress.

I'm writing a paper meanwhile.  All my prose and grammar and focus is typing that.  My escapade with Agent... was because my mind is melting from the bullshit I'm writing.
I was going to continue it, but my mind flew faster than my touchscreen smartphone keyboard could keep up with. I somehow turned it into a james bond skit with a murderous midget and you pulling a gun on me. Even better, I had written this line

"Gotham York Metroville, more assholes than Jersey Shore but 10x the fire power".

I tried writing Gotham York Metroville in abbreviated format only to realize it was GYM, and then I looked at that line. I lol'd on the inside.

Dice can I join your fanclub?

By most accounts you're creating a better story than FFXIII-2 has anyway.

Wait, the next part was coming up....

I realized that I am an overweight, grungy dude who's idea of a facial is an electric razor and a shower, and then to my surprise...I was eating broccoli rabe. "I hate broccoli rabe" I thought, everything becoming slightly fuzzy. I look across the table and see the lovely Dice sitting there, and it hit me again "she's a pretty lady who likes video games, none of this makes sense". I didn't have to say the words, I already knew what was happening....

Terrible fanfiction (temporal paradox was already taken)!

"Maybe we'll hit the spa, full facials and massages. We deserve it, girlfriend", I replied, while twirling a fork into my sauteed broccoli rabe.


I am a terrible role player, I'm better at playing the games.

I shall forever call that "the sinestro slaP!". Mark Strong is fucking awesome.

Sounds good. It'll be like brunch, only less mimosas and more complaining about life and how the men our lives treat us like dirt. We're worth so much more!

If anyone here watches shameless, you know why handcuffed the girl to the car and shot her....

Shameless is an awesome show btw.

Fuck my life, was super excited to get ffxiii-2 tuesday morning. Now I'm stuck working 9 til possibly 9 maybe later depending on how quickly I can mount a 60inch plasma tv by myself. Even tried rescheduling to get tuesday off...no go. Sadface.exe :(

I'm in the same boat.  Wednesday.  Probably won't eve be playing it that day or the next.... fuck my life.

Let's go complain and moan in grief together.
Can't, working that day and the day after. Can I take a raincheck?
2425  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade on: January 29, 2012, 11:33:00 PM
Anyways, something I didn't look at in here, but are you stuck using shitty motion controls ala every fucking terrible wii game ever? Gotta say, if so, will not be running to play this as fast as I thought. Better yet, can you use a gamecube controller to play?

The game doesn't use motion even if you DO use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, and the GC isn't supported nor would it honestly be a good idea, all four shoulder buttons and the Back button are used so they would've needed to make a third control scheme to accommodate it, not to mention that if you hate that little, somewhat out of the way D-Pad on the GC controller you'd be stuck with it for Arts selection. Some like the Wii Remote + Nunchuk setup best, but if you'd still prefer a standard controller than just get a Classic Controller Pro for this.
Okay glad you cleared that up. Glad I bought my sister that classic controller for her wii...that I bought her as well.

Also, I just read that article. Really, you bought that article as legit. Chu chu breeding and arena? Cmon, if you played a xeno game you can't be that gullible.

We dont know it is a goof article, all I said is that's what i remember reading ( maybe I did get fooled, who knows). I never read anything definitive that said they were or were not related.   Unless you think anything written on that day is a goof? I just don't feel like arguing about it ( I regret bringing it up).

On topic:

The controls on this game are fine. And Ive already put about 50 hours into it.

Ive always enjoyed ff 12, and this is how I imagine a sequel to that game would be like.


Ive had it imported for some time and I can say its up there in my top 100.
Doesn't really answer my question though. Motion controls are obnoxious and a waste. I work enough, I don't want my video games giving me fucking tennis elbow after spending 2-5 hours in a small space running cable through fiberglass insulation and exposed nails. My dislike for the wii is saved for a different topic, but my question stands on if a gamecube controller is useable as a play method or if you're stuck doing silly wave motions in the air to do a super move when pressing X would have sufficed.

Thanks Lucca!

Is it looka or lucka?

Looka! Just like Chrono Trigger's Lucca!

Given the fact the game came out when voice acting wasn't an option... it is a good question.  I'm mostly happy we pronounce it the same then too haha

I hated when people said "Tee-dus" for FFX's "Tide-us"/(Titus). 

Pronunciations are fun.
I just said it like the comedian but with more d. He was about as funny....which wasn't all that much.

Relevant....sweet chili sauce is the best sauce ever. Put it on everything.
2429  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade on: January 29, 2012, 11:11:00 PM
Its debatable. And thats the last I want to talk about that.


Monolith has a new rpg project they are working on and its either "xeno" related or baten
Wait, you bring a goof article as documented proof to a debate, and then decide to cut your losses and end the conversation? Wow....

Anyways, something I didn't look at in here, but are you stuck using shitty motion controls ala every fucking terrible wii game ever? Gotta say, if so, will not be running to play this as fast as I thought. Better yet, can you use a gamecube controller to play?

Hey xenosaga is awesome (well not 2 so much but eh), I wasn't trying to knock it. Xenoblade just got me wanting to play all of the xeno games again. Also yeah, NOTHING in the xeno prefix games is connected outside of xenosaga and its sequels. It's well known by anyone who looks into the games directly. Xenogears isn't related to saga and neither to blade, saga just used some gears stuff for reference bits and nostalgia really. Hell, even shion and jin's last name uzuki is no relation to citan from xenogears. Sucks though, would have made more of an impact if the sword style jin used was derived from the uzuki line, developed by his ancestor citan, right?

Damn I wanna play this game. Wish april would get here faster, cuz I hate importing.
