Need the help of Dice and anyone else who wants to chime in! I'm deciding to let my credit card cry a bit and get myself a house warming gift in the form of a Love Live figure, but I'm having trouble deciding between two:

Option A
Option B

I love the colors in Option A, but it would also be nice to finally have something in my collection that wasn't so... fleshy.

Dragon Quest X is also apparently coming to PS4. This kind of has me wondering if there's still a chance of it coming west. I thought it was supposedly a miserable failure, but then why release it on two new consoles?

A lot of people criticize the cast of Persona 4 because they were a bunch of complete morons. But I feel like those are people who don't want to admit they were complete morons in high school. Because they were. We all were. To your point, they felt a lot more like a group of teenagers than the cast of Persona 3.

WHAT IS THIS NONSENSE!? YOU ALREADY ALLITERATED WITH B!!! UNSUBSCRIBE!

I've done nothing but play online and that's definitely the way to go. Most everybody is constantly overshooting the ball and accidentally scoring on their own goal. The chaos is real, and being a victim of that is not at all a sign of being bad at the game.

Trust me, play online and you'll feel a lot better about your level of talent. Just be sure to make sure your message privacy is set to "Friends Only" or you'll be spammed a LOT

I apologize for this taking so long. Moving sucks.... ... ...and Rocket League is kind of awesome.

OCTOBER
What!? ...Your Persona is Evolving!

>Another full moon, another easy boss battle. Though it did manage to kill me the first time at the very end thanks to one of those "Fuck You" roulette that Fortune uses near the end of the battle. Second try I managed to knock it down and finish it off before it even had a chance to use them.

> I'm astonished I had forgotten about Shinjiro's death. Not even a momentary lapse of memory, it had completely vanished from my memory of the game. In a way it was nice because the scene genuinely came as a surprise to me.  This was literally what was going on in my head during the scene:
    "Wow, I forgot Strega gets involved here."
    "The group can get here and interject at any time."
    "Well good. For a minute there, I thought I had misremembered--"
    "Wait. Wait! What's going on. Why don't I remember--"
    "WHAAAAT!? But that's not-- He doesn't--- Is he really--"
    "Holy shit! How did I forget that!?"


> It is a weird death that probably doesn't have as much of an emotional impact as the creators probably wanted. I mean, Shinji is no Aeris. He's just a side character with no story beyond being mysterious and having some connection with Akihiko until about a month before he kicks the bucket, and even then doesn't have much of a contribution beyond motivating Ken into psychopath mode.

> Ken's emotional flip-flopping before, during, and after the event really is kind of disturbing. Then again, most things about Ken are disturbing when he shares an uncanny resemblance to the Big Boy restaurant mascot. But honestly, some of the things he says just make my jaw drop. For one, I don't think suicidal thoughts are a normal part of grief, most definitely not for a grade schooler. Kid's just messed up.

> Month is not conducive to exploring Tartarus, that's for sure. Luckily at this point I can get to the barrier on the very first visit and then just spend the rest of the time grinding for levels and yen. But I'm a little behind now because I never ran into the Request Katana for this particular area. I'll have to go back when I've gained a few levels and can just run through the floors without any encounters.

> Finished more social links, including:
     Tanaka: "Hi! I'm a douchey Japanese businessman. Would you also like to be a douchey Japanese businessman? You shouldn't be a douchey Japanese businessman." The end.
     Chihiro: Glad I did this one. Probably the second most compelling Social Link in the game, going in a totally different direction than it initially seems to.
     Sports Team: "Ow my knee! It's okay, I'll ignore it. No I won't." The end.

> Gah! Why doesn't anyone go to the principal to report that Edogawa is teaching utter bullshit to the students? Why is the school medic even substituting at all? I do like Atlus' clever little back-patting though:
Code:
When talking about summoning magic, he mentions you can see it a lot in books, movies, and "better video games."

> "Fuck you, Mitsuru! What is this, a deck of cards!? Narukami's uncle gives him cash for doing well on exams. C-A-S-H!!"

By the way, I haven't played Pokemon in forever, so if my reference in the subtitle is off, please let me know.

Actually, while I'm here.  I've fired up FFX-2.... is there any benefit to levelling job classes for all girls or is it better to, say, stick Paine with attack-based jobs, and Yuna with magic ones, and Rikku with... I dunno, whatever she excels in (speed?).

Just have fun and experiment! Other than the final battle of the bonus dungeon, everything in the game is incredibly easy.

Glad to be of service. You can do the same thing with USPS packages. I wouldn't doubt that Fed Ex does something similar as well.

I'd doubt it very much. Fed Ex is an affront to the parcel service industry.

... I could have sworn I posted that. I know I wrote a post. I made a hilarious joke about bad translations.


But it's not here. Or anywhere.

Where the hell did I post?

O_O


25  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: July 25, 2015, 09:15:37 PM
Its funny how I have NO concept of time.

I am late for everything, always determined to get done with my day and turn in while its still dark only to see dawn every morning.

But THIS is where I draw the line.

What is it I speak of? Well its just about August, I have yet to finish Mass Effect 2. I was determined to move through the trilogies end by fall and I have been totally ignorant of the calender days drifting by as draw and tattoo my little (non-functional) nuts off.

NO MORE!!

I will not compromise my ability to indulge autumn appropriate games and media because I am that behind on Mass Effect which is probably the best gaming experience I have had since Chrono Trigger.

I am stating all this in the interest of accountability. Something about this journal and community helps keep me dedicated and on course. I am a better gamer thanks to RPGFan and I SHALL NOT FAIL IN SAVING THE GALAXY!!!!

Ok I'm done ranting.

MASS EFFECT 2/ Samara loyalty mission.
Code:
Can't believe they give you the option of taking out Samara and recruiting her nympho-nut-asari daughter. I, of course, did what any responsible Shep would do and killed Samara. I mean, come on... she was trying to off her own kid for protheans sake!!!

UGH! I know exactly how you feel. This was going to be the summer of the Vita, where I manage to catch up on a bunch of my Vita games. I managed to finish a grand total of 2. And I plan on having 2 new ones by the end of the summer. Lot of good that did me.

Well, I've got 6 endings, I should be well off right?
Oh wait, there's 21 of them.

I'm sure I can follow a guide to make it easier...
WTH!?? https://squadronofshame.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/page_1.jpg (fully SFW if wondering - just a big image)

The pathing in School Days is rocket science.

Watching someone live tweet their experience with the anime on Twitter at the moment. Odd coincidence.

Ar nosurge -

Grr! I'm not very far in this game and yet I've spent the last TWO sessions just watching cutscenes at the restaurant/synthesis shop. Is there any end to these? I figured at first that as the story progresses, more cutscenes become available, and I just hadn't been keeping up. But considering this is only, like, my third opportunity to do anything in Felion, I'm starting to wonder.

EDIT: Seems my first theory was right, there're just a lot of cutscenes at these shops. Finished up Felion's only to move right on to unlocking Quanturv's and now going through those -_-

There hasn't been a post on the forums all day, so this post is from me to all of you. You're welcome.

Should probably post some haps though, huh?

Uh... moving on 8/7. Only a few more weeks of my first semester of graduate work. Not looking forward to the final exam. I don't think it's going to be that hard, but it's an online course with a proctored exam, so basically I get to have a complete stranger watching me take the test which totally creeps me out and is absolutely going to make me more nervous than I would be otherwise.

Just went on a rant on Twitter about the new PSN design.

Used to be I could log on, go to "New > New This Week" and check out any game, add-on, bundle, avatar, video, or theme that was added that week. Then they buried that in Games, which is fine I guess, though counter-intuitive. Now they've gotten rid of it completely. The App Store recently did something similar, replacing sections like "Recently Updated" and "Recently Added" with each subcategory of games having 4 different "Featured" categories and no way to order anything by release date.

I'm just getting sick and tired of digital storefronts becoming more and more convoluted because of some lame marketing scheme or whatever.


EDIT: Also, if you haven't spent enough money on DOA5 FR yet, the Season 2 pass is now available for, just like the first season pass, around $100. Gotta get those 70,000 costumes you'll use once before going back to your favorite.

Whatever they do next I look forward to it, they've earned a good reputation with even their small library (Odin Sphere probably being the weakest of the bunch from a gameplay standpoint, but it looks like they're setting out to change that).

^I actually enjoyed Odin Sphere more than I enjoyed Dragon's Crown
