^ I feel your oft misunderstood pain. Sometimes people say things that I want to yell at them for spoiling, then have to stop myself when I realize most people wouldn't consider it spoilers. Like obviously you can't even start DQ Heroes without knowing what characters are in it, and yet still when a video I was watching started showing off the fighting style for characters I hadn't unlocked yet, I had to close my eyes so as not to "spoil" it.
17  The Rest / General Discussions / Best Thread Ever! (Nov. 15 - Best Comfort Food) on: November 15, 2015, 12:35:46 PM
Time to learn more about our community! Blatantly stolen from Dice's VGM thread idea, gonna try to do a new General Favorites topic every two weeks or so, we'll see how long people discuss each topic before deciding on an actual time frame for changes.


No real rules, but here are a few suggestions:

1. Try to be Picky  -  This isn't a thread about what you like, it's a thread about what you LOVE.

2. Feel Free to Suggest Topics  -  Just don't reply to your own suggestion, as then what will you talk about when it comes up?

3. First Person to Imply the Thread Title Was Inspired by NPH's Crappy Variety Show Gets Pouted At  - And mean thoughts. And sad eyes.... yes, the connection occurred to me, but only AFTER I named the thread. So there.

And of course follow standard forum rules: have fun, be respectful yadda yadda yadda.

NOVEMBER 15: Best Comfort Food Ever!

American Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, a holiday that revolves around comfort food (And disgusting bird meat for some reason... poultry = yuck) so what better topic to start us off with than what we like to stuff our faces with to make ourselves feel better (and then worse)?


My own answer? I'm going to cheat a little and say Tex Mex. I do mean a little, because let's face it most Tex Mex is pretty much the same ingredients arranged in a slightly different way. Though if I had to pick something, it would be Chile Colorado: Beef marinated in a red chile sauce, not unlike standard red enchilada sauce. Put some of that in a tortilla with seasoned rice, beans, veggies and cheese and you have the perfect decadent taco. <3

Runner Ups

Meatloaf & Barbecue Sauce - It's like butter, but meatier.

Caesar Salad - Not what one would typically think of as a comfort food, but the dressing itself is pretty rich and it does make me feel warm and happy.

^ Completely agree, I mostly like the new perk system, but having crafting tied to them is annoying.

A few gripes I myself have with the game, despite overall enjoying it:

- Game pretty much makes sure you can't ever get too far away from power armor.

- Some bosses are atrociously cheap. I took out The Glowing One who could kill me in one shot by taking advantage of a glitch where he wouldn't go back into the room he spawned in, so I ran into that room, walked into the hallway to potshot his limbs, then ran back into the room he spawned in and took a few more shots when he made it to the doorway, then waited for him to go back down the hall and repeated until he was crippled enough to finish him off without too much danger.

- Raiders love Molotov Cocktails way too much.

- Keep clearing buildings only to find keys I can't find a use for.

I played a bit of Speluinker World so y'all don't have to. I mean.. unless you *want* fake difficulty that puts the NES to shame.

I found a Fat Man off a regular Power Armor Raider in Lexington. Helped me out a lot at the Corvega Assembly Plant.

Speaking of which, anyone know where the safe is in that building? Got the key off Jared but can't find the damn safe anywhere.
21  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Tips for Lunar? on: November 13, 2015, 08:51:12 PM
All I remember about Lunar is playing the GBA version, making it all the way to the second part of the final battle without much trouble and getting slaughtered in two or three turns. Then going back and fighting enemies in the final dungeon, realizing that I was high enough for it to take hours to gain one level, and quitting the game for good. Don't know if it's the same for other versions, but I thought that was the most ridiculous difficulty spike I've ever encountered in a video game.

So today my Goddess Black Heart figurine that I pre-ordered months ago came in. At the moment I'm regretting getting it. The thing was such a pain to put together, I managed to break two pegs off in the process. One was a clean break and was able to be glued back on easily enough with super glue, the other one is temporarily set in place with the help of super glue but needs something better to put it together more permanently. Waiting on an order of special hobby glue that I found recommended on another forum.

The thing is beautiful now that it's put together, but it's also even bigger than I thought it would be and looks a little awkward next to my other figures. And every time I look at it at the moment I just remember how stressful my morning was because of it.

I'm sure eventually it will be another cherished part of my collection, but right now it's just another source of anxiety in a time when I have plenty of that.

(No pictures until I'm no longer afraid to breathe on the thing, apologies if that's disappointing.)

How has nobody asked this question yet...

...Does this mean we'll be getting a Cloud Strife Amiibo? Will it be designed by Nintendo or Play-Arts Kai? Will I be able to give Yoshi a Cloud Strife skin in YWW?

Final Fantasy Explorers looks pretty damn good too.

I'm excited it's coming out 4 days before my B-day.
25  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Super Smash Bros. Namdai on: November 12, 2015, 05:47:11 PM
I'm sure in one of the multiple universes it makes some kind of sense.
26  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Misc. Gaming News Topic on: November 12, 2015, 05:41:59 PM



Oh, and Cloud Strife in Smash 'cuz reasons.

I'm really glad people can still get excited about Nintendo news, but for me when every new announcement comes with "...and you can get this exclusive amiibo," it makes me retch.
28  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: November 12, 2015, 05:20:41 PM
Wife and I have been playing even more Dark Cloud 2.  It's wonderful.  We both are close to getting our ultimate weapons.  She has her Final sword with Monica, the Dark Cloud.  I got one of the Final guns with Max, the Supernova.  And we're very close to getting the final Armband and Hammer, respectively.

So how much mileage did your SO get out of Monica's transformations?

More than I ever got.  She likes talking to monsters, so we got over half the badges, but she gave up on leveling them quickly when we saw how grindy it was.

I remember how grindy Monica's transformations were. I think I barely touched them...

Played some more Grandia these last few days. I've just finished the Ghost Ship, so I'm not that far in. God, I either suck at this game, or that giant squid was really difficult. I died a few times, so I went back and leveled until I got Feena's burnflame  - that sorted the bugger out.

Yeah, that boss is stupid hard without fire and stupid easy with it. I was confused the second time I attempted to play through the game and got slaughtered on that boss after remembering him to be fairly easy on my first attempt.

Hey now!

At least McCarthy and James try.

Hart just screams gibberish a lot and hopes somebody laughs at something.

Caved and bought this tonight (Being around Boston area gamers all day makes it pretty hard to just ignore.) Underestimated how long it would take to install and now work tomorrow is never going to end.

((Mind you it's not like I could actually afford the game, but my attitude towards money has reached the point of "Fuck it, whatever" status))
