1  Site Related & More / RPGFan: The Boards / Suggestion: Game Journal Sub-Forum on: Today at 05:40:46 PM
So I think I'm not alone in saying I think threads like Maxx's FF13 playthrough, Dice's FF7 playthrough, and forgive-me-for-forgetting-who's FF6 playthrough have been some of the most entertaining threads we've had on these forums, plus they've generated lighthearted and fun discussions and debates.

There also have been several inspired posters talking about wanting to start similar threads for detailed playthroughs of other games.

That said, rather than inundating the Single Player forum with such threads, or flooding the Game Journal thread with bloated posts, I think a great idea would be to keep the Game Journal thread for smaller gaming haps related posts, and start a new sub-forum for members to share extended LP's and other gaming quests.

CRYPTON RELEASED A MIKU THEMED CARD BATTLE GAME!!

It's all in Japanese, but the tutorial I did this morning seemed pretty straightforward. Yay!

Are you talking about this?

I actually played a demo of that when I was at the Sapporo Snow Festival earlier this year.  Seemed OK, if kind of simplistic...

I believe there has been talk about doing an English version, but I have no idea when that would be out.

Well, card battle games are always pretty simplistic. This one on the other hand isn't nearly as simplistic as a lot of the other card battle games I've played. The input mechanics are a little lame, sure. But what I love is that the stages themselves aren't just a means to go from battle to battle but offer a bit of a navigation puzzle, and you can't move on to the next area until you've "solved those puzzles.

I don't know, I'm loving it so far. Maybe that won't last, but we'll just have to see. I wouldn't be upset if they didn't bother with an English version. The UI is extremely intuitive, and the only real disadvantage to not reading Japanese is not being able to read the news updates and not knowing what the card skills do.

Slight correction, Sony owns Spider-Man, not Fox.

I absolutely love superhero movies and am totally okay with know three years in advance what I'll get to see. The 10 year old in me will never stop being happy that we're getting a continuous onscreen film universe and that fucking INFINITY WAR is a thing that will happen to mainstream cinema.

Oh, I love the movies and I have no problem with them telling us what's in the pipeline, but to say "This movie is coming out on May 5, 2018 is just... Why? What great Oracle did you talk to that blessed your movie for being ready on that exact day?

My thoughts are that Hollywood needs to fucking relax with the movie release dates three years in advance.

Getting this game for free, so I'm hoping it's good, but I won't be shattered if it's not.

How?

My boss at GS is getting a code for it but doesn't own a Vita. Probably won't have impressions to share for a while since he generally doesn't get this stuff until a week or two after it's been out.

Have any of you Love Live players had issues with the touch screen just not detecting your fingers?

I realize this is probably very device dependent so I'm not sure there's much you can say.  So I guess I'm ranting more than anything.  It only happens to me when I'm holding a note with one finger and then doing something else on the other side (so only on more complex songs).  Single presses don't seem to be an issue.  And it's not like it happens every time, but still there have been many occasions in which I've watched notes sail right under my fingers and get a miss.  Even if my timing wasn't perfect you have to be way off for that to be a miss.  The only explanation is that my touch just isn't being detected...

This has cost me full combos on many occasions.  In fact I still haven't been able to full combo the current event song on hard because of this issue.  It's a pretty long song with many multi-presses, the exact kind of thing that screws this up.  And it's not an easy song to begin with so I've screwed it up on my own plenty of times.  But there have been at least a couple of times when I really should have gotten a full combo if it weren't for this issue...now the event is nearing the end and I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever do it.

I'm seriously wondering if there's something I could put on my fingers to make them more detectable...

I've noticed this happens to me in other games, and I've started to pick up on the fact that if I'm touching the edge of the screen with one finger, then I can't seem to get the other finger to register anything. So I guess just try to aim a bit further in? Esp. on the main character and upper right/left.

^Agreed, and a shit ton of stuff to do too.

In the iOS realm of things, I'm finally learning my way around Ensemble Girls. Really fun anime high school themed CCG, but it's only available in Japanese, so I've had to do some digging for guides, which are sparse to say the least so I've also had to do a lot of experimenting on my own.

Still haven't figured out how one is supposed to participate in Event Gacha without spending real currency, but given their name I would assume there's a way to access them via the event they're associated with. Will have to keep playing and hope I stumble across something.

DA characters always look awful, at least in my opinion. just really don't like the visual style Bioware went with for the series.

I feel like this discussion is a bit pre-emptive, but I have to say everyone should try the final battle below level 50 with none of the bonus materia at least once. It's so much more difficult.

Doesn't help that if you are above level 60, the game says "Fuck it, you're overpowered already, you can take in two parties if you want."

Forgot to mention I watched the first season of Person of Interest recently. I tried watching it when it first premiered and thought the pilot was absolute garbage.

The first episode is still pretty much junk, but it picks up relatively quickly after that. The only thing that never gets better is the main character. I wouldn't be surprised if someone who knew nothing of the show saw a scene (any scene) and thought Mr. Reese was supposed to be a parody of the "damaged tough guy" persona.

Here is the real question everyone should be asking is why can cloud walk on walls and ceilings even being a experiment never really explains that lol. But everyone just accepts it and moves on with the story.

I think it was something like, at that point Cloud the Sephiroth clone was so close to the original Sephiroth that not even gravity could get in the way of "the reunion."

Also, by typing that out I just realized how on-point it is that they have the original SEPHIROTH encased in a bunch of roots.

I sold all the Pokemon games I wasn't going to get around to and bought Fantasy Life and put some more money toward Project Diva 2. Haven't regretted it yet. Fantasy Life is the perfect game to relax with. A bit grindy, a bit repetitive, but super charming and enough freedom and variety to keep me interested for an hour or two when I'm trying to unwind after a tough day.
