I did the math today, and if I want to finish all of Senran Kagura Burst's missions (twice, once for an A rating and again for Frantic Clear) by the time Shinovi Versus is reported to come out, I need to clear 24 missions a day. I'm really enjoying it now that I've unlocked some new moves, but man do I regret setting it aside for Bravely Default.

Maybe they're taking a new approach and translating purely the audio w/o text.

One of my biggest unfounded fears is someone breaking into my place and stealing my gaming crap. I know I would never get half of the merchandise I've collected back. On that point, I think it takes a for real scum-bag to steal someones personal  goods. There are a great many moral lows man can reach, but stealing another mans personal belongings is something I REALLY detest and can't understand. There are a number of other immoral, illegal ways to go out and make money that does not directly hurt and violate another innocent human being. People can really suck alright.

I have nightmares about someone breaking in quite often, especially after the incident with crazy neighbour :/

I've told this story here before, but my sister actually had something stolen from her right from her room. She had invited some friends over. Atleast, she thought all of them were friends. One of them stole her mobile phone, mistaking it for a model that was actually worth something. (Note: they were all around 14 years old) In her case it all worked out. The guy was an idiot, so it wasn't hard to figure out he was the culprit. He had already caused some minor trouble in town and showed all the signs of going further down hill, so the police took the case quite seriously. Two months later my sis had her phone back. (And now, many years later, that guy takes it up the butt for cash at shady parties.)

Whem I was in Junior High, I had a friend steal $50 cash from me and spent the entire amount on Pokemon cards. >.<

Got my revenge though, as my step dad confronted the store owner where he bought the cards and my "friend" was no longer allowed in that store.

Been playing a lot of 3DS lately. Finally got around to starting Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. I was told the control system was very different from previous games, so I was glad to see that was a bit of an exaggeration. Just made it to the first "Past" section. So far my favorite mini-game is the Shop. Even with just the first two puzzles I can already see the aisles getting very complicated very quickly.

Also, with Shinovi Versus coming in the fall, I've been binge playing some Senran Kagura Burst to try and finish it by then. Katsuragi FTW!

Yeah, that tells me it was someone just looking to make a quick wad of cash at a Gamestop (really wish we didn't give cash for trade-ins to avoid shit like this). If the store can't help you, then at least the customer service line should be able to look up the transaction.

I wish you luck, and I'm sure plenty of people here would be willing to do whatever they can to help.

Man, that really sucks

If you have the original boxes for the systems make sure to tell the police the serial numbers and make sure they inform local Gamestops and pawn shops to look out for those serial numbers.

So I've finally started getting in the habit of writing everyday, and started a blog to go along with that. I figured I'd share my first post here, since it was inspired by the Conception 2 thread on these very forums:


Please share your thoughts if you have any, not only on the writing itself but on the blog and formatting as well. (Oh, and don't take any offense to the critical bits, Never am I referring to anyone on these forums since I have nothing but respect for this community)

Just sent you a PM :)

How are they handling payments during the beta phase. Subscription model already in place or is it "free" until the game goes gold?

Game was officially released June 3rd. Purchase comes with your standard free 30 days.
10  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Destiny on: July 15, 2014, 09:39:38 AM
If anyone wants their own beta code (as in, not assigned to a system yet) I have an extra one to give away.
11  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Wildstar on: July 15, 2014, 09:36:23 AM
Purchase + Subscription. I realize it's not everyone's favorite model, but the devs make it worth it. They plan (and so far have successfully implemented) to release an "Ultradrop" at the end of each month filled with loads of extra content. The end of the first month (last month) they released a drop with two new level 50 zones, a bunch of costume and decor stuff, and a plethora of general fixes. The drop at the end of this month has already been revealed to include a new PvP Battleground and a bunch of yet-to-be-announced content as well.

Plus if you find you're making a ton of money in the game, you can buy game time with in-game currency from other players thanks to the C.R.E.D.D system (This also works in the opposite direction, i.e. if you have extra cash you can buy game time and sell it to players in-game)

The Last Guardian is like that one girl you were interested in and then she got a boyfriend and you were like "maybe she'll realize I'm better and she'll break up with him" and then one day they get married and then you're like "maybe she'll realize he sucks and they'll get divorced and I'll swoop in" and then none of that never happens

And then you run into her 10 years later and leave the encounter wondering "What the fuck did I ever see in her!?"

Gave the Free-to-Play SOUL CALIBUR a try last night.

It's a really neat idea but I don't even know if I can say it has potential because there are just a ton of things the game gets wrong.

=> Loading times are atrocious and makes it feel like navigating menus is half of the game. What makes this more infuriating is the lack of streamlining. There are separate menus, for example, for selling gear, equipping gear, and crafting gems unto gear, and you can't do any of these things from the other menus. This means if you want to equip something new and sell the old piece, you have to wait for the character menu to load, wait for the equip menu to load, wait again for the character menu to load, and then wait for the sell menu to load.

=> The game commits a cardinal sin of new F2P games and doesn't allow the player to buy upgrades and other microtransactions with in-game currency. It's all real money based, except for a premium pack available to buy once a day with Friend Points, and I can guarantee you won't find as good of stuff in that one as the premium packs you pay for ($4 or $20, by the way)

=> With a focus on character levels and equipment, plus a much more limited moveset, the game feels more like a 1v1 action RPG than a fighting game. Not a dealbreaker for me, since I'm terrible at fighting games, but I recognize the title doesn't do a good job representing the franchise in this regard.

^ AHHH!! SO JELLY!! so jelly

Seriously, I'm glad that figurine doesn't have her wings or else I might never speak to you again out of sheer jealousy.

Not really.

Watched Captain Phillips this week. Excellent movie, and kudos to the director for having a tone in mind and sticking with it for the full length of the movie. Fantastic performances from everyone involved, engaging script that kept me on the edge of my seat, this movie had the full package. Really the best part of the movie was that the the Somalians were "antagonists" as opposed to full on villains.
