I remember the original getting a lot of press (aka, lots of coverage on niche sites, and an article or two on the major outlets) simply for it's unique subject matter.

I would totally play Neptunia meets Senran Kagura.

Turns out my tax return came in yesterday! So naturally the first thing I did was buy Warlock 2. Oddly, even though it's not supposed to unlock until tomorrow I can play it just fine. Started an Exiled campaign with the Undead. Taking over the world with Ghost Ships and Giant Bats. Didn't play a lot (it felt odd playing a game that technically isn't "out" yet, even though I've beta tested plenty before) but a few changes I noticed right away are fantastic. New races and wizards to choose from, obviously. Also you can finally view the spell tree so picking a new one to research is less of a guessing game And now this is turning into a Game Journal post, so I'll give more opinions there when I've had more time to check it out.

Forward momentum in Bravely Default! After grinding a bit for new gear, I (rather easily) defeated both optional bosses in the canyon and then took out Victor/ia which was also not that hard of a fight... once you took poison/exterminate out of the equation. Though I couldn't resist leaving enough of my party exposed a few times so I could poison Victor and watch her use Exterminate on him.

Character Creation (holy crap)

Gameplay (Looks nice)

So Black Desert.  A new next-gen Korean MMO with.....some pretty fucking swell graphics and the most intuitive and extensive looking character creator I've ever seen.

EDIT: You can even adjust how much fucking oil/shine there is on your skin.

That character creator would have me spending more time creating characters than playing the actual game. Which is okay, because that gameplay looks annoying as hell. A little too chaotic, and the fact that every single attack has that explosive, shaky camera effect would give me a massive headache. Not to mention, with a character creator like that I'd imagine armor appearances would be at least as limited as TERA, if not even moreso.

I am greatly upset at the loss of sweet chili sauce at mcdonalds, and have been trying to find a suitable replacement...so much so that I've tried concocting my own. I took ketchup, red pepper flakes, pancake syrup, onion and garlic powder, and a little spicy barbeque sauce and mixed them all together til the consistency was like cough syrupy. It....wasn't terrible actually. I took a chicken cutlet and 2 waffles and ate it like a sandwich witb said sauce and it was decent enough...

I miss the sweet chili sauce.

I found out they got rid of the Sweet Chili Sauce the week after I found out they got rid of the Big Mac Snack Wrap. I don't think I can eat at McDonalds anymore.

I'm pretty shocked that the releases are SO far apart.

Made it to Act 2 (Chapter 4) of Witch and the Hundred Knight. Last chapter was incredibly annoying. Those succubi enemies and their jumoing around got so irritating. And then there was the town where you'd occasionally get attacked by the indestructible enemies. Finally, the boss actually managed to kill me the first time because I wasted too much time trying to fight through that endless wave of Tiramisus instead of just finishing off Cigaro.

Yeah, that Ratchet & Clank post was a pretty good read, I hadn't seen it before. I still hope Future gets a trilogy release at some point, maybe even a Vita port.

Quack-O-Matic is my favorite morpher FYI.

I don't get you all and your Yunalesca issues.
On my second run of FFX, I just zombieproof my trio.

If that's really all you did you would lose the second she changed to her third form.

I want to visit the alternate dimension where Square Enix *did* localize Bravely Default and find out which version is better.

My first fight with Yunalesca this playthrough went horribly wrong. I decided to try the Reflect tactic, which worked great on the first two forms, but the third form she managed to reflect a Regen on herself. And stupid me not thinking to just dispel the thing left it on her because it was only healing her for about 500hp per turn and she only had half her hp at that point. Well, the Regen spell is fricking crazy because the next turn it heals her for 5700, and then for about 300, and then for 7100. All of a sudden she's practically at full health again because I hadn't really been paying attention and I slipped up and ate a Mega Death with my Zombified party member dead from some stupid thing.

Second time I just ignored the Zombie effect, kept Yuna with a Zombieproof ring in at all times, and had the other two party members raise her after Mega Death and whoop Yunalesca. Only scary times were when she used Mind Blast.

In honor of the new GoT season, which like the rest I won't be watching, I give you this (apologies if it was posted in the past, I usually avoid YT and thus the YT thread, but I do love some BLR)

It looks nice, but I'd have preferred less detailed sprites if it meant that they were animated. It bothers me that most of these dungeon crawlers have largely static battles - Phantasy Star had animated enemies back in 1987, but these enemies just seem to wobble up and down a bit.

I kind of agree, I've seen a few of these RPGs with what I'd call "over-detailed" graphics, and to me it just looks really messy and loud.

So I have officially joined the ranks of HD PC gaming. My old monitor was dying so my mom was nice enough to buy me a new one, and other than needing to spend $35 of my own money for an HDMI > HDMI Mini cable, I'm quite happy with it. I just have to figure out how to get rid of this washed out look (or get used to it)
45  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: April 07, 2014, 10:33:50 AM
I actually gave in and moved on from FFIV:TAY back to Trails in the Sky. I have a question for those who have played it: How's the difficulty curve? I get the feeling it's going to be one of those RPG's where the monsters get stronger at a much slower pace than your characters.
