Sorry for double posting but this required its own post.

FXIII-2 finally went whete movies went 20 years ago. They Bill and Ted'd the game. I will not share how, or when, but wait for it and imagine bogus journey, when they get to the end of the movie and finish fighting the "evil us's". You will never take ff seriously again.

i just have to say that Mog is like the Jar Jar Binks of Final Fantasy. God I hate this damn moogle.

And Noel is the biggest derfwad of a main character in an RPG yet.
Uh....what? Noel is far more tolerable than the last 6 mains in ff history. He's a nice guy, but is seriously pissed off about what happened. Anyone that reminds him of himself gets a mouthful. I almost dare say Noel is one of the best (male) leads in FF history. Course, no one can beat Ramza. Also, Mog is awesome, (s)he makes me giggle everytime I lob it across a map.

Just saw the side comment on the Summoner's Outfit. Strange, I'm completely opposite of you on that standpoint. I think her standard outfit is horrendous and feel sorry for anyone who didn't order through GS because the SO looks far better.

If anyone wants, maybe I'll snag a few from my store.

As for the comment.  I *hate* the Summoner outfit colours... it's so damned pinkpink, she looks like a 17-year old Japanese Barbie (I can't wait for that military-looking one, she doesn't look as valley-girl).  I like the design better of the summoner outfit, but the maroon-pink and white combo of her standard outfit (even if it is waaay generic design, slapped together by 10 different, inconsistent design elements) looks a bit better.  

This kinda nails my dislike. It's like super japanese pink barbie shit....and emo black boots. It's retarded at best.

Edit:Yeah, anyone else feeling that whole "radiant historia" feel here. It's like where I would hava seen radiant historia as a console title. It works, just makes me miss historia again

I fought that Cieth you were having troubles with. If you have access to Bresha 300 AF I suggest hunting down a Circuitron, leveling it up, and adding it to your assault party; also equipping someone with a Hypnocrown.

It's Feral Link ability gives your entire party full buffs and lightning element to their attacks. With Hypnocrown you pretty much get to recast it every time the dark fog pops up again. With some well-time recoveries and switching over a Medic/Medic/Com. formation whenever your HP gets low should do the trick.
I would kiss you if it weren't for the fact that my phone screen may get slobbered on. I am definitely gonna try that next. Sad too, I fought a bunch of those circuitrons, but didn't get a crystal. Bresha Ruins 300af was a cool spot too, I loved the snow effect on your clothes there, and on the chocobo.

I didn't like grandia xtreme at all, the characters were odd looking, the environments were ugly, the music sucked. It felt lile they took all the bad aesthetics from every grandia title and mashed em together here. However, the battle system was probably the best of every grandia title. Not saying much though, grandia has a terrific battle system. I remember when I rented it from blockbuster (yeah that long ago, lol), the disc was like pristine. The guy behind the counter said he'd never even seen the disc before, and he worked there for 3 years. I was surprised till I started to play it. God was I bored in seconds. Even the dialogue was just bleh.

I'll stick to pre ending grandia 2 for good dialogue.

I do have veilga btw, but it seems I've had it for some time, leading me back to my original bitching of Status Effects out the ass. I'm gonna get my accessory capacity up and try a couple ribbons later, or get bored in a bit and try simply outmuacling the bitch.

Improved moovle throw is a lie. Getting one gil isn't better than getting nothing and waiting a year for mog to come back.

My parents owned an atari 2600 before I was born, and when I was old enough to not break it, the would play pacman with me. I was barely old enough to remember that, like 3 going on 4. Christmas of 1989, got my nintendo. My parents fell in love with tetris and later dr. mario, but I was zelda and smb. Course tbrough them I learned how to play and got pretty good at tetris too, but meh this isn't puzzlegamefan. My first rpg experience was iirf princess tomato on salad island or some shit like that, which needless to say, I didn't understand at 4 years old, and one day rentals from our local video store meant I played for 10 minutes and my dad took it back. Next time I tried an rpg was 4 years later, and it was Final Fantasy (not vii like you hipster weenies trying to jump on the bandwagon) III though more commonly known now as VI. Though I was still sort of shit at it, it cemented my love of rpgs for life. The first rpg that I beat, which probably was the reason I will always remember and desire rpgs based on the famous plumber, was super mario rpg. Memories....ahhh.

Just fought a gigantaur and nearly pissed myself with excitement when I got its crystal, then I noticed it's  a grade 4 synergist with shit stats as of now. i haven't gotten any tier 4 organic monster items yet. So basically, more crap in my inventory.

Been to the casino, and I know the feeling. Slots sucks, and racing is balls. I've caught a green chocobo, but he's in my paradigm pack so I used a regular chocobo. Yeah....waste of time. I am currently in archlytte step trying to nab a red chocobo (if you played tactics, you probably fear them as much as I do). Ballsy commando bird likes to super buff himself then beat you down, but he's not hard to debuff. I've also found purple chocobos in bresha ruins ( snowy version) but when I arrived there the first time, bitch bird ran away after 10 minutes of his defensive ass using entrench. Personally, I wants a black chocobirdy so I can name him Teio and piss EVERYONE off as I break the game.

Regardimg gorgyra, I didn't have anyone who could cast veil that I recall, but more importantly, my paradigm pack is sort of filled perfectly for what I do. I have noel on synergist, and I can't remember if he has veil or veilga, but if he does, I've tried it and it doesn't hold up (i mostly lead with serah, since ravager aoe moves rape normal fights and I don't really notice what spells he tosses up while I debuff and heal). i'll confirm later on if I do have it or not, and if not I will try that next, being I just got a HUEG cactus that will buff me.

Back to the casino, lol color swaps of chocolina. I like the blonde in blue feathers. She looks like a bimbo, hee hee.
2603  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: February 04, 2012, 04:33:42 AM
Massive bitchiness alert.

When you reach Yaschas Massif 1X AF, there is a quest to fight some cie'th named gorgyra. I have to admit, someone was trolling when they made this asstart. Fight is easy, til it starts filling the battle with some miasma that generates status ailments every few seconds. I could almost deal with tha np, but one of those effects is a daze that lasts a good 10 seconds. K, I know what you're thinking, equip something to prevent it, can't cuz my accessory capacity is too low to equip it. In any case, daze isn't the worst part, I have some 50 remedies on hand and a three pack med paradigm including one kick ass green chocobo. The PROBLEM comes in the last leg of the fight when he gets desperate. The miasma crap starts landing effects faster and he starts spamming ( he usez it beforehand too, but spams when near death) a move called anguished melody. Apparantley it deals damage based on how many status effects you've compiled. If I have more than 3 at any time, it deals 3-4000 damage, killing me twice over, and that's per character. Wouldn't be so bad if he didn't use it every 3 hits, but heaven help me if I blink, I get nailed. He has about 840k hp, which at this point in game is hefty by any standards. I have gotten him down to 42k in 2 fights, and about 50k+ in the majority of the rest. My last encounter ( the one before I fucking flung my controller in disgust) was at 65,437 last I checked, and then 8 minutes of non stop healing trying to stay alive long enough to switch paradigms and land a quick volley of magic. Finally got sacked about 3 minutes ago now. Gotta say, bullshit is pretty stinky guys, and this definitely ain't no axe bodyspray I'm catching wind of. Gonna try coming back to it later, maybe get some better equipment or higher accessory capacity.

Btw what the hell is with the shop, 6 areas I've run through and nothing new in stores, outside of fucking monster clothes. Was terri ly excited to get a fucking red propeller for my flanbolero.
2604  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Next 10 years of Mega Man being discussed by "Top Men" at Capcom on: February 03, 2012, 11:19:06 PM
You can't tell but I am repeatedly hitting my head off a wall in pure disgust for what is happening to mega man. Seriously, what is wrong with people that they can't fucking release a decent mega man title? What is it, did capcom fart the part of their brain out that made a decent platformer? Make another fucking mega man rpg, command mission was pretty decent honestly. Lege....nevermind, too much heartbreak still. Hell I'll take another shitty battle network. Instead, we get solitaire.

2605  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Status of Front Mission on: February 03, 2012, 11:14:16 PM
I never played a front mission til evolved. Boy was that a bad move.
2606  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: February 03, 2012, 11:12:49 PM
Snow has a decent shot with every lady in xiii-2 I think, including lightning. Besides, the way he keeps throwing her to the side to go stuff "for her" seems more like an excuse to go get some heroine booty. I honestly think this is as close to two timing in the ff world as possible, but meh, fat single guy doesn't have a good grip on relationships.

They just tossed version 1.03 up, almost kicked me off my game to do it, but after a swift cancel, I went, saved and just updated now. Any idea what this ner version fixed/added/removed/nerfed/etc?
2607  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: February 03, 2012, 06:26:25 PM
Gonna position myself behind of nerd-proof glass first.....

I thought Dark Souls was terrible for the 2 hours that I played. Between my characters slow ass movement, clunky fighting coupled with annoyingcamera locking and not locking, and an oversized fatass of a boss (first boss) who moved faster and swung harder and overall was better than me, only to fall to me fucking circle strafing his ass and winning, yeah this game did nothing for me except show me that developers find ease in handicapping players to make games harder. It's really sad, and honestly, don't try to coerce me to play again, it's not going to happen. The game just didn't do anything for me as an rpg fan. I can understand how some like it, but that's their business. I just wanted to toss my 2 cents in the mix.
2608  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: February 03, 2012, 06:18:44 PM
Haven't seen a flanborg yet, but I did get a flanmini that I've been pumping up a bit, and he's got some retardedly high stats, which again puts me in the said situation of my old monsters sucking compared to new ones. Course he's a com, so I didn't place him in my party yet, as I need to unlock and lvl sab on serah first (working slowly to it). Speaking of lvls, unlocked medic and syn on serah and noel respectively, and medic for serah is 26 and syn on noel is also 26, while com on noel and rav on serah are 50. The other classes...yeah later on those.
2609  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade on: February 03, 2012, 06:03:32 PM
Validates my post, but touche nonetheless.
2610  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: February 03, 2012, 06:00:53 PM
I've never seen so many innane hand gestures in my life. It's like watching a couple guidos argue over whos momma's meatballs are better. When you meet the nora guys, noel and yuj specifically start throwing their hands up in all different directions, it's hillariously stypid. Oh, as for noel not being like snow....yeah the game even makes a joke about it when you meet up with snow. Only difference is snow is more obnoxious about it, whereas noel is more serious.

As far as returning characters go though, 10 points for new Hope, -50 for keeping old Hope's voice actor on new Hope. Who thought that was a good idea, seriously? He grows 2 feet and wears a fucking pimp ass suit, and he still has that silly boomerang and his whiney oh noes voice, just glad they made him seem less needy, though I think officially every main male in XIII-2 wants a piece of Serah's tiny, flat jp booty. I will admit, I do approve of the fact they retained Snow's old theme. Was pretty badass. God I wanna go home and play more, fucking work grahhh, fucking slow moving bus.

Anyone else not like the fact that the genji bow quickly became obsolete? Also, wtf is with the preorder summoner costume thing, she looks terrible. Finally, mog rocks. Fuck all you haters, I approve of the fully voiced kupo, especially when he fucks something up....or even better when you get to throw him. I giggle every time.
