I wouldn't call Eternal Sonata "stupid," it gets a bit silly, but the gameplay is pretty solid with a diverse and quite large cast of playable characters. And the game doesn't involve a lot of frustration if you grind a bit before each boss fight.

Also, while I adore the first two Paper Mario titles, I still think Super Paper Mario is the best in the series. It's my second favorite game on the Wii and lands somewhere on my extended list of favorite games overall.

Forecast is a little bit of everything.

1) It shows the effect that is in play right now (first square) , during the next chars turn (second square) and when the current character is up next (third square) in the current world. For example magic up by 20%, more money drops, etc...
2) There are 6 special portals in each world (except the last) but only one is active during the drop at a time (you'll have to find it, IIRC you have to look at the map). The mystery spirit shows you the type of this special enemy in that world and appear as a black out "?". If you have already found and beaten it it says finished and they're not blacked out. Beating all these, iirc, gets you the best weapon.

Yes, thank you! It was the Dream Eater squares that were confusing me, but that explains a lot.
By the way, I also noticed the game keeps count of how many times you've dropped. Does this affect anything like endings or what-have-you?

Yeah, the more I play the more familiar he sounds. Anyway, I should probably counter my negativity by mentioning that I'm quickly being reminded of why this is my favorite game in the series. The command melding mechanic basically forces you to constantly change up your strategy and experiment, whereas with the other games I basically find something that works and stick with it, making the game slightly more repetitive. I also like all the mini-games, especially the command board. Love me some Itadaki Street, so to have it in Kingdom Hearts is awesome!

Question for people who have played Kingdom Hearts 3D: Can you explain what the "Forecast" thing is all about?

Actually, Last Week Tonight did a segment on how states generally get people to buy lottery tickets by saying the money gets funded to education mostly, but if you follow the money that's hardly ever the case.

I don't care Fresh off the Boat is a pretty decent TV show. There's some good humor in there and the cast is pretty good. I just watched the 4 eps on Hulu and I hope it sticks around.

I haven't had a chance to check it out, but after having dated a girl with a by-the-books "tiger mom" for three years, I think I'm going to enjoy it thoroughly.

Did Terra's VA change for the 2.5 HD Remix? I don't remember him sounding so... dull. Really looking forward to Type-0 HD now. I feel like Square could have done a lot better job bringing BbS to the big screen with just a bit more effort, so in comparison Type-0 is going to be phenomenal.

I also feel like nowhere is the signature Kingdom Hearts backwards difficulty curve more prevalent than in this particular game. The system basically makes your character useless until you unlock some more command slots and styles.

^ Those particular missions are more about avoiding attacks than they are about defeating the enemies quickly. If they're the mission type I'm thinking of.

Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix

Made it through the Cave of Remembrance (god that music is beautiful) and gave the first Org XIII Data fight a try.... Yeah. Fuck that. Maybe some time in the distant future, but I don't have time for that nonsense right now

It's official!

Eh, I always think people are just too picky with the entertainment they consume. But it's not a point worth arguing. And I won't further derail the thread to talk about how, while not the greatest show ever made by a long shot, Big Bang Theory gets a lot more flak than it deserves. But suffice it to say, that's how I feel.

Still think this Zelda thing has potential if it's even true. I think it could very well be. After all, Nintendo has been lending out their properties a little bit more than usual lately.

Green Light it. They would all certainly be better than whatever drivel the networks are puking all over the general public these days.

Most critics agree that television right now is at an all time high in terms of quality. I don't know what you're watching, but I recommend checking around and you might be surprised.

Also, The video game series with the most potential to be turned into a TV show in my opinion would be Tomb Raider/Uncharted. Why nobody has tried to make an Indiana Jones style serial is beyond me.

Nintendo has been playing nice lately.

Take your pic of any various "Hahaha! You so funny!" gifs to insert here. I love Nintendo dearly, but their behavior lately is disgraceful to say the least.

The "remastered" version of the overworld map theme from the OST+ is pretty amazing!

The original FF7 Overworld theme still takes the cake though.

Also, don't feel bad. By the time I made it to Lindblum in a normal playthrough I would have been at about 5-7 hours.

Kingdom Hearts 2

- I don't remember the fight with Roxas being so damned impossible.

- I *JUST* made the connection of the name "Xehanort" following the Nobody naming scheme for "Another." Is there any significance to that? Is it mentioned in the games or has someone from the team made a comment about it?
44  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: February 06, 2015, 08:15:48 PM
Just an FYI for anyone who's actually interested in my less-than-insightful ramblings about Star Ocean 4: With the slew of releases I'm picking up late February/early March I need to start actually finishing games so I'm going to be hunkering down and really working to finish some of the games I'm moderately close to finished with for the next few weeks. This means putting my SO4 playthrough on hold for a bit.

I doubt anyone's going to be truly bummed about this, but I figured I'd mention it anyway.

EDIT: Also, since I keep forgetting to mention it:


Seriously, I've loved all of the Kingdom Hearts' "Story so far" openings and they just keep getting better. I can't wait to see what they put together for KH3.

It's certainly one of those things where if it's good it's going to be amazing, and if it's bad it's going to be horrific.
