So i promoted all sixe classes on friday, and played just enough to get sentinel back to 20. Haven't played really since outside of 2 hours today. Pretty sure we cleared the 150k promotions required for victory packs, so hooray for that.

Wonder what next weekend will be? I personally am hoping for a double credits weekend.

Caught wrath of the titans today, and was pretty satisfied with it as a sequel. Couple plotholes here and there, but nothing majorly destructive. My big gripes were the completely removal of Io (Gemma Arterton) who I loved in the first movie and was also a bombshell of a hottie, and andromeda's character becoming some super warrior queen badass over the last few years story wise. Her being replaced by Rosamund Pike was a plus, as the original left most viewers thinking she was a wimpy martyr, which is odd considering she played the badass chick in the chronicles of riddick. Also irritating was how many scenes show her a bit grimey looking and bloody, and all of a sudden the camera cuts away and then back to her and she's clean and glistening again. I know movie magic has to male pretty blonde chick super appealing and all, but cmon, she was fighting a giant lava thing with an army, you could have left some.goddamn dust and soot on her face!

Still, outside of those minor whines, movie was great. Liam Neeson always delivers, and Voldemo...I mean Ralph Fiennes still pulls off the slimey scowl of hades well. Course, Sam Worthington could learn how to say more than YEEEEAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHHH  when he yells. He always sounds like he's saying yeahhhhh really loudly.

But you know, on the reverse side of this arguement, perhaps not the artist or creator of the intellectual property themselves, but the money behind the piece of work likes to shade our view of said piece.

Lemme try that again.

In the video game world, publishers are killing developers for quicker monetary returns. In the art and book worlds, investors pressure artists and writers to bring out new material harder and faster every day. Fans like to blame the creators of everything, not realizing that they have deadlines. We as consumers don't want to hear this, it's not our problem. However, deadline isn't met->money is pulled from project->project is scrapped->inbound crappy sequel to moderately successful title/book/piece. It basically boils down to the blame game, everyone is part of the problem.

That being said, I accept my part in this hate triangle, knowing full well that I bitch furiously about bad stuff.

have you beat any gold levels yet?
Yeah, we beat both runs last night, second one with a full extraction to boot. The first one...lol, I got downed with one second left on the extraction timer.

Ran some gold multiplayer runs tonight with a group of pals. We took the bitch route though, cerberus on firebase white. I didn't think I would have that much fun honestly, considering wave 11 was basically phantoms, atlas mechs, and combat engineers, but me on my turian sentinel and my friends on asari and drell adepts. Can you say biotic explosions?

My Noel and Serah are with every role at level 99, and Noel has his best weapon "In Paradisum" but I'm still trying to get the best weapon for Serah (can't get that Gandiva to drop).

My problem with Jihl though is dealing damage when she is staggered since that's easily the best moment to go and kill her as fast as you can because she recover her HP pretty fast when you are busy staggering her again. So my dilema is when to stagger.

Haven't tried to fight against Ultros and his buddy yet.
I'll say it again, kill the psi com soldiers before you start wailing on jihl. When she sacrifices the remaining pawns, her health won't get restored. Makes dealing with her much easier.
2752  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: March 29, 2012, 09:35:27 PM
Any tips for Jihl Nabaat? She's kicking my ass. :<
Kill the psicom soldier then focus on jihl, with the psicom soldiers down, she doesn't heal after her sacrifice pawns move.

I think the fact that it's only a photo and not an in game representation of her and of all quarians is what really chaffs mine and most other fans' asses. Seeing a photo like that only shows that there is something that we all wanted to see, but bioware, or maybe EA, didn't care to actually put that into the game. It ends being that the entire race will always be a masked group of unknowns, with one photo of a hot chick to "reassure" us. It's like if darth vader never took his helmet off in the star wars flicks, or if you never find out who the psycho was in scream and its' sequels. Add onto that the fact that there will be no more direct mass effect sequel, maybe some spin off or dlc stuff, and the fanbase has little chance of our undying urge to see the quarians unmasked happen.

Of course, when I say quarians, I mean a full shot of tali' zorah unmaksked.

I'll be on tonight as well, though before 3am is preferred. Been up since 4, long series of meetings across manhattan.

6 classes, all level 20, turian sentinel is the shit.
2755  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: March 28, 2012, 03:53:59 PM
...my sazh has like 8k I think, serah has about the same, Noel closer to 9. Did you try a sentinel build to reduce damage during spam? I know jihl's limit break type move one shot anyone on me team, but sentinel made it like....2-3k damage. Also, purple chocobo has better buffs than sazh, and better hp iirc. Sazh has better magic BY FAR though. Wish he were a ravager, fucking silly synergist bullshit.
2756  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: March 28, 2012, 01:29:17 PM
I fought Ultros and Typhon yesterday. Got iced three times, and my team is maxed out with Sazh, Omega, and Lightning. They're nasty.

Amazingly fun fight though.
No super medic squad? For shame.

Are ultros and typhoon difficult cuz they hit hard or because of a bs aspect to the fight lile jihl?

Hmmm, almost sounds like ffxiv is getting decent. I'm still waiting for a ps3 release before I do anything, but I almost don't hate the sound of it anymore.

You, sir, need to experience vanguard.

And end up a little red puddle on the floor? >_<
Actually Vanguard has the highest survivability in this game, since you have abilities that restore your barrier to max after every charge and you can shave that ability down to 1 or 2 seconds.
Salarian engineer has pretty good survivability too, with decoy being astoundingly useful and energy drain working like vanguard's biotic charge without the nasty side effect of putting you in front of an angry atlas. Granted I'm referring to multiplayer now, but the abilities are both available in single player as bonus powers. If you want some crazy indestructible shepard, vanguard and energy drain as a bonus power.

Have any of you all looked into the "indoctrination theory" circulating around? The video is pretty revealing, kinda makes you wonder if bioware really was thinking ahead? I don't wanna link to it because it is MASSIVE SPOILERS FOR ALL THREE GAMES if you haven't played them, but it shouldn't be so hard to find it via a quick google search. I know a lot of you are bitter with bioware, but the theory really does throw a wrench in the works.
