Oh, FFS, please not on this site!

The term "toon" did NOT originate in WoW.

Friggin' kids >.<

All in good fun

^ Don't stop playing until you've acquired the Disco Phial. The best item in any lego game ever.

Surprised nobody has posted this, but Nintendo has laid out their DLC plans, and it sounds FANTASTIC

First is a free update near the end of September that will make the game's three villains playable.

The rest of the four planned DLC packs all include new areas/maps, new weapon types, and new character skins. But the best part is the feature of each pack which all have me super excited:

Master Quest Pack
- New Story Quest/New Adventure

Twilight Princess Pack
- 2 New Yet-to-be Revealed Characters

Majora's Mask Pack
- 2 New Yet-to-be Revealed Characters
(please be Deku Link/Princess/King!)

Ganon Pack
- 2 New Game Modes

Buying all the packs together will set you back $19.99 and net you a Dark Link skin.

I now remember why I made it to the end of .Hack//Quarantine only once. I'm nearing the end of Outbreak and at this point it's just the absolute epitome of repetition at this point. And it's also at the point where the game starts throwing all it's curve balls at you at once. You get enemies that heal paired with enemies that can kill you in two hits paired with enemies that have magic or physical immunities paired with enemies that can cause status effects without any time delay paired with enemies that can revive other enemies paired with groups of enemies that can time their casts to stunlock your entire party.

UGH.

It's such poor design, and yet I still love them for merely being a part of the franchise and (despite the slow start) having a story that holds up against the other stories from this universe.

You know, the more I think about it the more I realize that an all male cast for a J-RPG would actually be a bit different and in a certain way a bit refreshing. I feel like a lot of RPGs tailor the story around a cast that features a relatively equal number of males and females, which can often lead to weak characters.

I feel like with FFXV they have a story they want to tell and it just so happens that it's a story about a Prince and his posse, who happen (realistically) to be all males. I don't know, the optimist in me just wants to believe that not being tied down by a balance of genders will result in better storytelling.

I'm... that was... I mean....

Wow.

They certainly haven't lost their touch for spectacle.

AND DAT MUSIC!

Thank you for sharing that, this game is actually back in my sights. The group still looks basically like Japanese Entourage, but after seeing that trailer I think the cast might grow on me.

^ That gif should be in violation of some kind of forum policy against posting the stuff of nightmares and demon tears.

((And that isn't any commentary about Lightning, just the gif itself))

In other Type-0 news, looks like I have 6 months to save up for a PS4. Thankfully I have Christmas and my Birthday in those 6 months.

By the way, for those of you playing Theatrhythm, here's the codes from the back of the Type-0 Collectacards to get a free one in-game:

Rem = "MP not an issue"
Machina = "Never skips class"
Ace = "Loves chocobos"

Up to 6,000 Rhythmia in Curtain Call.

- I still suck terribly at the timing in the Event songs, and I have no idea why.

-I also kind of find it easier to do well with music I've never heard (like from Type-0) or music I've always ignored in the game (like FFX-2), which I guess makes sense since I'm paying more attention to the prompts than the music.

- I really like that they not only increased the number of characters and tracks, but the number of backgrounds as well. In fact, I don't think I can recall so far two songs that used the same background.

- I had a quest that ended with "Under the Weight" from FFXIV and couldn't help spending the entire session thinking of stupid jokes like "If I fail this, can I blame lag? And once I get enough practice and can do it really well, can I start charging people to help them clear it?"

um... what am I looking at besides PlayStation 3?
27  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: September 16, 2014, 11:12:21 PM

It's also making me want to throw like half of the FF series into my backlog...

Yup.

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call makes me very very happy.

That's all there really is to it.

For all the things FFXIV does wrong, I have to admit it has some of the best English quest names of any MMO.

Music in the Witch Trial sections of Layton vs. Wright is amazing! Just started chapter 3 and the story has it's claws in me for sure. Gonna be getting a lot of use out of my 3DS between this, Theatrhythm (tomorrow! yay!) and finishing up Senran Kagura.
